My Surname Used To Be Trump - Here's Why I Had To Change It

To say that I hate Donald Trump would be something of an understatement. Like lots of people, I am sick of hearing his bile and seeing his smug, plasticine face plastered over front-pages and television screens. Unlike most however, my reasons run a bit deeper... For 32 years, I shared the same name as him.

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.

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?

All Bets on Hillary Clinton

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.

Why Hillary Is Not the Answer to America's Problems

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.

That is the lesson for mainstream politicians from the rise of Trump and people like him. They don't need to change course and pander to every whim and prejudice of the electorate; instead they need desperately to rediscover the ability to inspire, to excite and to lead.

So perhaps we should stop doing ISIS' propaganda for them. Maybe we should stop making Britain a target by thinking that banning individual people will change the views of many. We should welcome these people in and challenge them in a good old fashioned debate. Maybe that would be the right thing to do. Well either that, or just ban Trump...

I'll hold my hands up and admit it. I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton. Barring a massive shift in opinion, she's going to be the Democrats' nomination for the next U.S. President. But as much as I find her unconvincing, I'm not going to write about the Democrat race because we already know the result. Sorry Bernie Sanders, but unless Hillary falls under a bus, you're not getting it.
