Are the Democrats doomed?

Are the Democrats doomed?

Voters went to the polls Tuesday in off-year gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey that have long served as the first reliable preview of the country's political mood after a presidential election. The results send a very strong signal that the political environment has turned sharply against President Biden and the Democrats, and that adjustments will need to be made – and fast – if the party wants to avoid a midterm bloodbath a year from now.While final margins are still being calculated, Republican Glenn Youngkin posted a stunning victory over former Democratic Gov....

Matt Gaetz and the tyranny of the backbencher

Matt Gaetz and the tyranny of the backbencher

MenuSign up for our free email newslettersSign Up forOur free email newslettersThe lurid scandal well-known Trump ally and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) is obviously embarrassing for the GOP. No party leader wants to see one of their members accused of paying very young women, and possibly underage girls, for sex. But Gaetz is hardly the first politician to flame out in scandal and he won't be the last. The urgent task facing Republican leadership should be to ask how or why a man like Matt Gaetz became a prominent face of the party to begin with.The details of Gaetzgate are disturbingly sordid...

It's an unprecedented, if ham-fisted, siege of America's democratic institutions, one last way for this dreadful person to psychologically abuse a majority of the American people before he exits stage far-right. Over the course of the past week, I've cycled chaotically between thinking that the attempted putsch being staged in front of an exhausted world is a...

Was Trump ever as unpopular as we thought?

Was Trump ever as unpopular as we thought?

MenuSign up for our free email newslettersSign Up forOur free email newslettersAnother systematic polling error — this time larger than 2016 — didn't quite cost Joe Biden the presidency, but it seems pretty clear that had Republicans done about one point better across the board we would be looking at Republican control of both the House and Senate to go along with a narrowly re-elected President Trump, who would take office despite losing the popular vote by as many as 5 or 6 million votes. As it is, Democrats will eke out control of the House and will fall just short in the Senate unless...

Trump face-plants in the homestretch

Trump face-plants in the homestretch

MenuSign up for our free email newslettersSign Up forOur free email newslettersWhat in the world is President Trump doing?With just days left until the election, and with somewhere north of , the president has precious little time to turn around the fortunes of his re-election campaign and the prospects of the endangered Republican Senate majority. You would think that someone interested in stumbling into a second inaugural would be doing everything he can to convince the dwindling number of persuadable voters to give him another chance. Instead, the president is bent on alienating as many...
