Poll Shows Young Voters Switching Allegiance From Democrats to GOP

Democrats have depended on the youth vote in past elections, and Republicans this year have made it a strategy to close the gap with millennials.

In a sign that Republican efforts to target the youth vote is paying off, a new poll finds a majority of young Americans who intend to vote next week prefer a Republican-controlled Congress.

A survey released yesterday by Harvard Institute of Politics shows that of those age 18 to 29 who say they “definitely” will vote in the midterm elections Tuesday, 51 percent want Congress in GOP hands, compared to 47 percent who would rather have Democrats in charge.

Among all young people surveyed — whether they planned to vote or not — Democrats still held an edge, 50 percent to 43 percent.

A New Time for Choosing by Ted Cruz (Video)

There’s still great hope for America, but as Reagan knew, the people have to choose.

Fifty years ago today America faced a choice very much similar to the choice we face today.

On October 27, 1964, a clarion call was heard across the nation. America faced a choice, a speaker told us: We could either “abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves,” or we could reaffirm our belief “in our capacity for self-government.”

That man was Ronald Reagan and then, as now, it was a time to choose.

Today, the threats are every bit as dire. Over the past six years, individual rights have been attacked from all corners. In my home state of Texas, the City of Houston recently subpoenaed pastors, ordering them to surrender their sermons to City Hall. Powerful leaders from the White House on down have sought to take away Second Amendment rights from citizens all across America. Senate Democrats are supporting a constitutional amendment to repeal the individual right to free speech enshrined in the First Amendment. The IRS has illegally targeted Americans for their political beliefs.

Hysterical media tells us to calm down by Ann Coulter

We’re not seeing “panic.” What we’re seeing is rage that the country is having a deadly disease foist on it for no good reason.

In the past week, the New York Times has ridiculed Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Gov. Chris Christie for having “fed panic” by ordering quarantines for health workers arriving from Ebola-plagued countries.

NBC News’ Brian Williams opened his broadcast last Friday announcing that the Obama administration was trying “to restrain the Ebola panic.”

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow complained that the “hysteria” over Ebola was getting “stupider.”

I haven’t noticed any panic. If you want panic, review media coverage of the police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. That hair-on-fire coverage was based entirely, it turns out, on the media’s gullibly swallowing inaccurate accounts of the incident.

For decades liberals have terrified soccer moms about a slew of imaginary terrors: global warming, Alar on apples, breast implants, heterosexual AIDS, nuclear war, and Republicans taking away their birth control.

Was This Well-Known State Department Official Actually a Communist? (Video)

“The liberal establishment ignored all of the evidence … and instead called those going after him the real villains. ‘They were on a witch hunt!’” Beck remarked. “Respected historians today now agree Hiss was indeed a spy for the Soviet Union, [and] did a lot of damage.”

Glenn Beck on Thursday told one of the stories from his new book “Dreamers and Deceivers: True Stories of the Heroes and Villains Who Made America.”

“[It’s an] amazing history story, perfect for Halloween, one that you probably don’t know,” Beck began on his television program. “The pro-communist bias of our media and our education system has kept this one pretty quiet. It’s important that you know it, though, and I thought it was appropriate because of Halloween. It all happened in a pumpkin, believe it or not.”

Beck began telling the story of former State Department official Alger Hiss.

“How easy it is to get what one wants, with nothing other than a simple omission of a key fact or two,” Beck said. “That was one of the lessons a young Alger Hiss learned early on in his professional career, a career that made him a hero among the liberal establishment of the day. He was good looking. He was well dressed, well educated and well spoken. Hiss held several positions throughout the federal government and the State Department, which enabled him to create close relationships with Supreme Court justices and even the president of the United States.”

Field Poll: Democrats Lead Every California Statewide Race

The latest Field Poll, released Thursday, shows that in every single statewide contest that pits a Republican against a Democrat, the latter has a substantial lead. The only race that appears to be competitive as Election Day approaches is the race for Superintendent of Public Instruction, which is a non-partisan office, and features a matchup between two Democrats.

At the top of the ticket, in the Governor’s race, popular incumbent Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has a commanding 21-point lead over his Republican opponent, Neel Kashkari, 54% to 33%. Brown has maintained a similar lead over Kashkari throughout the entire campaign season.

Some political pundits have said that perhaps the strongest two GOP contenders this year for statewide office are Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, who is running for Controller, and Pete Peterson, who is running for Secretary of State. Swearengin is currently losing to Democrat Betty Yee by twelve points. While the Secretary of State contest is closer, Democrat State Senator Alex Pedilla still enjoys a seven-point lead. Peterson would need undecided voters to break two-to-one his way to win that race–a tall order.

These numbers in the partisan races are not surprising, given the state’s latest registration figures as of early September: 43.4% Democrat, 28.2% Republican, 23.1% No Party Preference (with the remainder scattered among various third parties). Conventional wisdom is that especially in down-ticket races, in the absence of major funding for a candidate, voters tend to vote for the candidate in their own party, with decline-to-state voters splitting based on their personal biases.

Gang with bats, lead pipes, heavy chains attacks America’s favorite tough guy.

It’s a fact: If tapped, a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick could power the entire country of Brazil for 44 days.

Norris, best known for playing the starring role in the television series, “Walker, Texas Ranger,” is making an appearance in a commercial for LiveTIM, a telecommunications company in Brazil, where the Internet connection speed is slow and videos freeze constantly.
