Alaska: The Republican Party's Last Frontier?

Duncan Kenyon | Posted 17.10.2016 | UK Politics

In many ways, Alaska is the most likely 'strong Republican' state to swing, purely from a mathematical point of view. If Clinton wins this state, it will send a powerful message to the Republicans that no state - even Sarah Palin's - is safe from the Democrats and make their work leading up to 2020 even more difficult.

Clinton Vs Trump - The Electoral College Is Key, Often Misunderstood And Could Be About To Make A Big Shift

If nothing changes at this point, then Hillary could be heading for a win in the Electoral College on a similar scale as Obama. However, if Trump's share of the vote collapses even more, then she could make a seismic change in the way the map looks and the word "landslide" might come into play.

Clinton Vs Trump - Why This Election Is Different

The next four weeks can be expected to produce more twists, turns and most likely outrages. The process can be described as horrific, but like a horror film or a bad soap-opera it is hard to avert your eyes and I feel we will be transfixed until the end.

Martin Luther King. Harvey Milk. Susan B. Anthony What do all of these people have in common? They were all unconventional, viewed as 'problems' and 'troublemakers' in contemporary society. They all faced large, increasing opposition. However, all of them made a difference. Just like the latter Hillary Clinton has already made a difference to the lives of millions...

Did Ted Cruz Cross The Thin Line Between Opportunism And Populism?

On 23 September 2016, US Senator Ted Cruz, one of the most ferocious republican opponents and runner-up of Donald Trump during the Republican primary, announced that he was eventually endorsing him. Why endorsing him so late? Why endorsing him at all?

Unpredictable. But only up to a point. The one thing you can be sure of is that Clinton will continue to hammer Trump on each and every single thing he says and does between now and polling day.

You could argue that is already happening but it's as important as ever that we use the Brexit fallout as medium to have a long hard look in the mirror and constructively address the issues that divide us. Let's catch ourselves before it gets beyond hope and use Donald Trump as an example of what is not wanted here.

As the Democrats continue their fight for progress in the face of so many tragedies, the rest of the world looks on in hope that the United States may finally move forward in their fight against gun violence. I would urge everyone to follow this closely and get on board with the #NoBillNoBreak trend on Twitter, for it is only in numbers that progress is made.

There have been thousands of articles pumped out over the course of the Democratic primary telling us of the 'dangers' of Bernie Sanders. These articles tend to skim over some key points that I find vital to the decision making of Americans voting in these primaries. Let's break some myths.

Sanders Might Not Win the Battle, But He's Won the War

Matt Hawkins | Posted 10.04.2016 | UK Politics
Matt Hawkins

Like Obama before him Sanders has fundamentally changed the way campaigning is done and enfranchised a whole community of people who will never again be satisfied with only having a voice every time a politician needs their vote at election. He has successfully raised awareness of the crooked nature of the political system and awakened Americans to the possibility of much bigger change than that being offered by Clinton.

These are wacko. Crazy ideas. Things that might sound pretty reasonable here in the UK. Ideas like free university tuition, universal healthcare and raising taxes on Wall Street. And it's because people in Great Britain might think they are reasonable that shows he has clearly gone too far.

No one ever thought Sanders would get this far, and there are 49 more chances for Bernie to eek out a victory in what should be an extremely close Primary. How the Establishment would sweat at the thought of a Bernie-Jeremy partnership.

Donald Trump: The Drunk Uncle Who Really Needs to Go to Bed

Trump's rhetoric is increasingly dangerous and divisive. Trump might claim he is simply 'telling it how it is.' That's not true. He is telling it how he sees it, and how he sees it, is not how it is. Trump is harming decent people through some warped sense of reality. And his platform keeps growing. We can't continue to laugh awkwardly. It is time to take the drunk, offensive Uncle to bed.
