[Donald] Trump won fair and square! He got 13.3 million votes. He won all over the country. He won when the race was crowded and when it was a one on one against Ted Cruz. There's just no reasonable way to keep Trump from the nomination while insisting that the will of the Republican voter is being respected.
I thought Donald Trump approach on Brexit was a fascinating window into how he thinks. His basic point was that [David] Cameron should resign because he didn't read the public mood on the issue right. And that Boris Johnson should be the next prime minister because he did. That's a very different definition of leadership than many politicians have. Or at least say they have.
Mike Pence is the hardest one to guess in 2020 as a leader, because I don't know if he is seen as the heir to the Donald Trump political movement or ig being the heir is a good thing.

Big moments like the Olympics tend to freeze things in place. It's just very hard to break through the news cycle with peoples's eyes on the Olympics. That's even more true with the concerns about Zika and terrorism.
Don't rely on the president to win you the race. You can have the president help you. Use the popularity that he has. That may get you an ear into some of these voters, but he isn't going to close the deal.

I am not convinced that means [Donald] Trump is a lock to be the next president but it does suggest that what he has tapped into is both lasting and powerful.

Georgia has been on the fringes of competitive for a while now because of its black population and growing Hispanic community.

I voted for Barack Obama twice but I found his rather strong statements about Donald Trump a little unseemly, kind of thought that he ought to stay above the fray so to speak. Is it just me who feels like this was a little out of bounds or is this good politics since his approval ratings are pretty high?
I was 12 minutes late. Let's not make a federal case out of it.
The editorial board, who endorses candidates, is totally separate from the news side of the business. We don't consult one another. They have one job to do, we have a totally different one to do. So whether the Washington Post editorial board endorses Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton is meaningless to me.
I am done underestimating [Donald] Trump and his appeal.
Donald Trump doesn't like to debate and knows in his heart of hearts he isn't great at it.
Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff are the best. You won't have me ever say a bad word about them.
[Paul] Ryan won kudos both within his membership and the party base for not giving in.
As for whether what happened in Britain improves[Donald] Trump's chances of winning, I don't think so. He has the same chances; we may just be more aware of what they are now.

Every member of Congress and every Senator kind of runs their own race with their own message because they don't want to necessarily have dictated from the White House what that message should be.
I think Donald Trump is simply incapable of sticking to a single message. Or of understanding that he doesn't know better than everyone else in every circumstance.

Donald Trump is doing remarkably badly among non-white voters and there are lots of them in Arizona.
I just think we all distrust people and institutions much more than we once did. And we tend to think elites run everything and are looking out for themselves at our expense. Add it up and you get LOTS more conspiracy theorists.

Prominent Democratic strategists are growing increasingly nervous that the national political environment is not only bad for their side but moving in the wrong direction in the final days before the election, a trend that not only could cost their party control of the Senate but also result in double-digit House losses.

Being freaked out doesn't mean you can fix what you perceive to be the problem.
I was very surprised Barack Obama called Donald Trump "unfit to serve" during a press conference with the prime minister of Singapore. That is the sort of full-weight-of-the-presidency thing that I don't necessarily expect from Obama. So, why did he do it? I think he not only genuinely dislikes Trump but believes Trump would be dangerous as the commander-in-chief.
Trump staying disciplined and on message is not what Donald Trump wants. He views himself as a tremendously gifted natural communicator who connects best with people when he is riffing without notes or preparation.
