He compared Duke s abutment for Trump to the ancestor of the Orlando bistro shooter s actualization at a Clinton rally, suggesting neither is accordant to the two presidential candidates. The actuality that an alone — a contemptable alone like that — supports my active acquaintance is no added accordant than the actuality that the ancestor of a man who dead 49 bodies in Orlando, Florida, was auspicious Hillary Clinton at one of her rallies, Pence said.Clinton FoundationPence additionally attacked the Clinton Foundation, highlighting its accepting of adopted donations — contributions that aren t accustomed as political attack contributions.

Clinton s debate strategy: It s about setting low expectations


The agitation expectations game. A active October for Admiral Obama. And a analytical New Hampshire appointment from a above presidential candidate. These belief and added are a allotment of the Inside Politics anticipation this week. 1) Team Clinton tries to accession the agitation bar Hillary Clinton s attack has an eye on the 2000 presidential chase as it tries to anatomy the expectations for her accessible debates with Donald Trump. Back then, Democrats anticipate they fabricated a aberration by abusive George W. Bush and suggesting he wasn t up to the assignment of debating Al Gore. When Bush did bigger than expected, it beneath Gore s standing. Fast advanced 16 years, and Team Clinton wants a altered outcome. Julie Pace of the Associated Press letters the Clinton attack is bent to set a college bar for Trump branch into the aboriginal agitation abutting month. The Clinton attack feels like she is activity to go into the debates with the acute expectations that commonly saddle an bounden admiral while Trump will accept a low bar to clear, Pace explains. We ll alpha to see admiral reminding reporters and voters that Trump was absolutely appealing acceptable in his Republican debates and acutely has a lot of acquaintance actuality on television. 2) Obama to hit attack aisle Admiral Obama is accepted to acknowledgment to the attack aisle in a little added than two weeks, ambiguous for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia. And s Jeff Zeleny letters that is aloof a bottomward payment. The Admiral has committed best of his October agenda to the Clinton campaign, with an accent on mobilizing African-American voters but additionally advocacy assembly in areas area he did able-bodied and Clinton is weak. He is ambience his architect on Iowa and Nevada, two states with added white populations, area he won and she is disturbing mightily, Zeleny reports. Sources acquaint him Joe Biden and Michelle Obama will additionally be ambiguous for Clinton. 3) Florida voters axis added absolute Florida was the abutting of the states that went dejected in 2012, with Admiral Obama almost squeaking out a achievement over Mitt Romney. So of advance it is a above battlefield in 2016. And it s accepting added complicated. Ed O Keefe of the Washington Post aggregate his advertisement on the acceleration in unaffiliated, or independent, voters in Florida. One absorbing subset: a big jump in the allotment of adolescent voters who debris to adjust with a above political party. Under 30-year-old voters are added unaffiliated: 34% compared to 38% for Democrats and 26% for Republicans, explains O Keefe. They ve slid considerably. While they accept bent up to Democrats all-embracing beyond the state, it s a assurance of the continuing agitation that both parties are activity to accept — but abnormally Republicans this year as they see added adolescent voters, added boyhood voters, go no affair affiliation. 4) Big-name GOP senators face primary battles This anniversary there are two primaries that will analysis GOP incumbents and may accommodate a snapshot on the anti-establishment animation that fueled Trump s candidacy. The big question: Is that movement still bubbling? Marco Rubio is attractive to be renominated for the U.S. Senate in Florida. John McCain is allurement the aforementioned of Arizona Republicans. Both are heavily favored, but both additionally accept been beneath than agog in their abutment for Trump. The voting margins Tuesday will be watched closely. The Atlantic s Molly Ball delved into the abeyant lessons. In Florida Marco Rubio, the already and approaching Senate candidate, has a challenger, a affluent agent who has fabricated him absorb money in that primary, Ball says. In Arizona, Agent John McCain has a amateur who has accused him of not actuality bourgeois abundant but additionally fabricated attacks on his age and his health. All these primaries we anticipate the admired will accomplish it through. But they (the challengers) accept put the bounden or admired applicant through their paces, fabricated them absorb some money. And area the vote totals end up could acquaint us area the abject is. 5) Kasich s New Hampshire visit: 2020 vision? Ohio Gov. John Kasich is in New Hampshire Sunday, but he wants you to accept it has annihilation to do with a abeyant 2020 presidential run. Or with reminding association in a beat accompaniment he is still at allowance with Donald Trump. The timing of his appointment isn t sitting able-bodied with arresting Trump supporters in the state. But Kasich insists this is an all backroom is local visit. The Sununu ancestors was acceptable to him in this year s presidential primaries and he is attractive to acknowledgment their loyalty. Kasich is accepted to bear an endorsement of Chris Sununu, who is in a aggressive GOP primary for New Hampshire governor. Chris Sununu is the son of above New Hampshire Gov. John H.

But the ancestors believes a Kasich endorsement will be a boost, and GOP sources accustomed with the conversations say John E. Sununu — the above agent — fabricated a claimed address to the Ohio governor. Kasich told s Anderson Cooper this accomplished anniversary that anybody should stop cerebration about what, if anything, this agency for 2020. But his allies in the accompaniment say it is no abstruse Kasich ethics the Sununu ancestors loyalty. And it s no abstruse Kasich hopes that continuing with his accompany now will be remembered should there be a Kasich 2020 campaign.

Hillary Clinton is a bigot? The art of the reverse attack


Cody Cain is a biographer and analyst in New York City. Follow him on Twitter @codycainland. The opinions bidding in this annotation are his. Hillary Clinton is a bigot! thundered Donald Trump.Huh?Hillary Clinton? A bigot? That makes no sense. It s absurd. Hillary Clinton has spent abundant of her career alive to advance chase relations. She is the extreme affair apprehensible from a bigot. So what in the apple is Trump accomplishing here?Trump is employing the abode of the about-face attack. Back he is faced with a accepted criticism of himself, he attempts to avert abroad the criticism by advancing Clinton for the exact aforementioned shortcoming that plagues Trump, behindhand of whether it absolutely applies to Clinton.Trump faced austere and accepted criticism for his own alarming racism, so he responded by authoritative the apocryphal allegation that Clinton is racist.Trump uses the about-face advance all the time. He did it on the affair of his abridgement of accomplishment to be president. This is a accepted botheration adverse Trump because he has no acquaintance whatsoever in government or politics. So how did he acknowledge to this criticism? He attacked Clinton by alleging that she is not able to be president.This, of course, is absurd. Clinton is conceivably the best able actuality to be admiral in history. She served as secretary of state, a United States senator, and she lived in the White House for eight years as aboriginal lady. Trump additionally pulled the about-face advance on the affair of actuality mentally unfit to be president. Questions about attitude are a accepted criticism of Trump due to all his abandoned behavior and statements. So how did Trump abode this criticism? He approved to about-face the tables by alleging Clinton is mentally unfit. To be sure, Clinton has abounding shortcomings, but actuality mentally ambiguous is not one of them. Yet that does not amount to Trump.Trump has accused Clinton of actuality a bully back acutely it is Trump who is the bully. The examples go on and on. So does it work? Is the about-face advance effective?Well, it absolutely is not the best way to affected a criticism. An ideal acknowledgment would be to acutely appearance that the criticism is inaccurate, say, by advertisement specific abilities to be president. But back there are no acceptable responses to a criticism, the about-face advance comes into play.The cold is to actualize confusion. The bigger the mess, the better. This way, the focus of absorption accouterment abroad from the adverse criticism because anybody becomes bent up in the food-fight. This is Trump s playbook. He is the bazaar ringmaster who creates all sorts of spectacles to alter absorption abroad from his own disqualifying inadequacies.While the about-face advance is aberrant indeed, it ultimately avalanche short. Once the abode is understood, the about-face advance is accessible to analyze and the accuracy becomes clear. Afterwards all, the about-face advance is abiding in lies because the ambition of the advance artlessly does not acquire the aforementioned flaws that affliction the attacker. It is a apace lie to say that Clinton is a bigot.Trump s attacks actualize a comedy but afterwards a while all the angry becomes annoying and we admit its futility. Afterwards we abstaining up, we see actual acutely that Trump is not alms any solutions whatsoever. He has no policies. He has no acceptable ideas. He has no strategy.Shockingly, Trump s bazaar act has agitated him to the top of the Republican admission for president. The acclamation announce that Trump is active abaft Clinton but aural arresting distance, so from this perspective, Trump s base about-face attacks may work. The catechism is whether the voters will activate to see through Trump s bazaar act afore it is too late.

Could Trump turn the tide post-Labor Day?


Julian Zelizer is a assistant of history and accessible diplomacy at Princeton University and a New America fellow. He is the columnist of Jimmy Carter and The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Abundant Society. The opinions bidding in this annotation are his. Afterwards Labor Day, the presidential attack will move into aerial gear. The candidates will be antagonism adjoin the balloter alarm and the campaigns will charge laser-eyed focus on what their corresponding aisle advanced is to achievement in November.Polls consistently appearance Donald Trump is active abaft Hillary Clinton. Afterwards Labor Day, if Trump wants to acquisition any solace, he needs to attending to some of the contest — best of which were added aggressive at this point — area the acclamation anchored by aboriginal September and candidates were able to arise able comebacks. Some examples that accept been frequently cited accommodate Harry Truman adjoin Thomas Dewey in 1948, Hubert Humphrey adjoin Richard Nixon in 1968, Gerald Ford adjoin Jimmy Carter in 1976 and Ronald Reagan adjoin Carter in 1980, admitting in two of these cases the improvement did not aftermath victory.At this point in the 2016 campaign, allowance are that alone article big will be able to badly about-face the attack and bandy the Clinton-Trump chase in a altered direction.Debates like annihilation we ve apparent beforeThe presidential debates, slated to alpha September 26, would be the aboriginal abode to look. Admitting the appulse of debates tends to be overrated, this abatement they could potentially accept a huge effect.These debates could be clashing any we accept apparent before. The audiences that will tune in or log on to see Clinton booty on Trump will apparently be astronomical.Trump s beatnik access to these events, as we saw in the Republican primaries, agency that annihilation can happen. His appearance could be so abashing that the debates advance Clinton into authoritative statements or physically acting in agency that accident her standing. Or his attacks could be so abandoned that they alpha to attenuate her support. On the added hand, Trump s achievement could be so alien that the debates artlessly actuate the bottomward aisle of his polls, acknowledging to admirers that he is unfit to be president. October abstracts dump?Then there is the alleged October Surprise. This is a abstraction has been about aback the 1960s and refers to a advised activity that takes abode with bald weeks larboard in the campaign, generally by the admiral of the United States, to about-face the election s direction. In 1980, the year the appellation became popular, Reagan s attack was abashed that Admiral Carter would advertise a accord had been accomplished in the Iran earnest crisis, bolstering Carter s re-election prospects. But the October Surprise has usually angry out to be a bust, a cabal imagined.This year, the October Abstracts Dump, rather than the October Surprise, is what both candidates should abhorrence most. It s accessible to brainstorm a WikiLeaks-like adumbration that leaves Clinton admiral disturbing to assure their position or Trump adverse a defeat alike worse than imagined.With the achievability that accompaniment actors like Russia are now gluttonous to access U.S. elections through hacking, the possibilities are frightening. Aloof as amusing media has created new opportunities for candidates to acquaint anon to voters afterwards any intermediaries, the Internet has created the affectionate of balloter ambiguity that we accept not apparent before.The accommodation by the Republican Affair about what to do with its assets can additionally accept huge ramifications. There accept been a cardinal of letters about how affair admiral are clashing amid continuing to abutment Trump, who is relying on them about absolutely for the best basal operations of his campaign, or throwing aggregate against Senate and House candidates so to abstain accident ascendancy of every annex of government.If the Republicans carelessness Trump afterwards Labor Day, that accommodation could be acutely important. With several third-party campaigns up and running, a aldermanic centered acclamation by the Republicans could be able if GOP voters accept addition abroad to casting their election for besides Clinton. Alike admitting it would apparently accomplish a Trump achievement impossible, a about-face in assets may aftermath the affectionate of disconnected government in 2017 that would anticipate a Admiral Clinton from advancing a cogent agenda, forth with advancing political altitude that will aftereffect in advancing analysis and aspersion warfare. Absolute meltdown? With Trump as the nominee, there is additionally the austere abeyant for a absolute accident at the top of the admission that could aftermath the affectionate of barrage we haven t apparent in decades. He is the abundant unknown. Already there accept been abounding moments, from his comments about women and immigrants to his associations with bourgeois agitator organizations, that actualize the abeyant for his attack to abatement apart.Thus far he has abhorred that aftereffect at every turn, but that won t beggarly this can t happen. Trump s capricious and uncontrollable appearance agency that the teleprompters will alone authority him aback for so long. The networks of alt right organizations that accept been in the apogee of his attack accommodate added than abundant opportunities for article absolutely abominable to appear out. If any of this occurs, the landslides of yesteryear ability aloof appear again.Game changes are rareBut alike with all of these factors, the allowance abide actual low that there will be any axiological change in the basal dynamics of the campaign. For all the allocution of game change moments in attack memoirs, these axis credibility are rare.Right now it looks like Trump is headed against a absolute balloter adversity for the GOP. When states like Utah and Georgia are not locks for the Republican nominee, the affair is in absolute trouble. As Laura Meckler appear in the Wall Street Journal, Trump s added attenuated aisle to achievement would accept to accommodate acceptable in Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. It aloof becomes actual adamantine and difficult to accept how the Trump attack gets to 270, said one of Mitt Romney s 2012 strategists. The affectionate of barrage victories that candidates like FDR in 1936 and LBJ in 1964 enjoyed ability no best be possible, accustomed that the electorate is so polarized in abounding states. But Clinton holds a able advance in best of the key battlefield states and there is little affirmation that Trump can turn dejected states into red.Even if there was a above civic aegis or calm crisis in September or October, it is cryptic that accessible assessment would about-face badly accustomed that neither applicant is the bounden and the acclamation appearance able levels of aplomb in Hillary Clinton on a cardinal of key issues. It is accessible to imagine, for example, that an abashing adopted action bearings leaves added voters added adequate with the affectionate of acquaintance that she offers rather than Trump.The basal band is that no one knows what s about the corner. One affair is that this is clashing any attack we accept anytime seen. So the weeks afterwards Labor Day will absolutely be abounding with surprises, twists and turns, awful moments, and a absonant political action that will accomplish some admirers anticipate they are acquainted into the 2016-2017 NFL division rather than presidential politics.

But the agitator GOP applicant has struggled with acceptable over boyhood voters. Trump was at 2% abutment amid African-American voters and 26% amid Hispanics in a contempo Pew Research poll.
