Democrats successfully convinced a federal judge to push back Florida's voter registration deadline until Oct. 18, a week-long extension they said was necessary because of Hurricane Matthew.
The order from Judge Mark Walker, who was appointed to the federal bench by President Obama, is a rebuke to Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican backing Donald Trump. Scott had argued against extending the deadline past the original date of Oct. 11.
“Hopefully it’s not lost on anyone that it’s the right to have a voice that is why this country exists," Walker said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Among Donald Trump’s favorite polls this election season is the USC/LA Times Daybreak tracking poll because it so often has shown him ahead when most other polls reported he was behind.
But Trump is unlikely to cite the poll on Twitter or during any of his campaign events Wednesday. For the first time since early September, even the USC/LA Times poll has Hillary Clinton leading.
The poll often is out of sync with other voter surveys because it uses different methodology. It asks voters to estimate, on a scale of 0 to 100, how likely they are to vote for a particular candidate and crunches the results for a daily forecast.
Bill Clinton has conquered at least one hurdle on the path to a potential first gentlemanship — the cookie competition.
With the help of his wife Hillary Clinton’s chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe, Bill Clinton won the 2016 Presidential Cookie Cookie Poll hosted by Family Circle magazine. He beat Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, and her star-shaped sugar cookie recipe 1,623 votes to 535, according to the poll results released Oct. 7.
Only 2,158 people voted between the time the Facebook poll opened in August until October, though. More than 9,000 people voted in a previous poll when First Lady Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain competed — Obama won by 287 votes with her white and dark chocolate chip cookies.
Utah is very much in play – and not just for the major party nominees.
A new poll published in the Deseret News shows the race in that longtime GOP stronghold is in a dead heat between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, with long-shot candidate Evan McMullin only a few points behind. McMullin is a graduate of Utah’s Brigham Young University.
The last time a third-party candidate won any electoral votes was in 1968, when George Wallace was on the ballot. McMullin is polling at 22%, just four points behind both Trump and Clinton. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is supported by 14% of voters.

Enough of the pussyfooting around. ... Do you support us or do you not support us?
Kellyanne Conway, campaign manager for Donald Trump, speaking on ABC's "Good Morning America" Wednesday about the number of Republican leaders rescinding their Trump endorsements.
The chief of human rights for the United Nations said Wednesday that Donald Trump would be “dangerous” for the world if elected president.
“If Donald Trump is elected, on the basis of what he has said already and unless that changes, I think it’s without any doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view,” Zeid Raad Hussein said at news conference, according to a report by the Associated Press.
He said some of Trump’s remarks, particularly regarding the nominee’s support of the use of torture, have been “deeply unsettling and disturbing.”
Though reality-show producer Mark Burnett (“Survivor,” “Shark Tank”) may assert that he’s unable to release behind-the-scenes video of his hit series “The Apprentice,” that hasn’t stopped news outlets from trying to uncover whatever bits and bobbles they can of pre-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Monday afternoon, the Huffington Post reported that Burnett used a transcript service for the series and that the outlet had obtained one such document for a Season 9 episode titled “Beauty and Brains,” which included details of both aired and unaired video.
The episode, which aired April 18, 2010, featured the celebrity teams making over two country music stars and presenting them to a panel of industry insiders.
