Thousands of people shared their thoughts with the Los Angeles Times on the presidential candidates. Two of the most used words to describe Clinton included "liar" and "capable." For Trump, "racist" and "strong" were at the top of the list.
Two informal surveys were posted on The Times' website between March and August. Those for and against each candidate chimed in, as did voters who aren't backing either.
It was the home of Richard Nixon, the cradle of Ronald Reagan’s career and, for decades, a virtual synonym for the Republican Party of California.
Now, for the first time since the Depression, Orange County stands on the verge of choosing a Democrat for president, potentially ending the longest streak of Republican presidential victories of any county in the state.
That possibility symbolizes how the American political map has been upended by Donald Trump’s campaign: He has sped up a decade-long shift in which the GOP has gathered strength in white, blue-collar regions that once routinely elected Democrats, but traditional Republican suburbs increasingly have turned blue.
Campaigning in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, Donald Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, launched a new round of attacks on the Affordable Care Act on Tuesday.
“Obamacare has to be replaced, and we will do it very quickly,” Trump told supporters outside Philadelphia, promising a rare special session of Congress if he is elected. “If we don’t repeal and replace, we will destroy American healthcare forever.”
Trump again offered little detail about how he would address rising health costs beyond vague pledges to reduce regulation of health insurance. He spent just eight minutes discussing healthcare in the speech, billed as a "special" address on the topic.
As Donald Trump kicked off the final full week before election day, he dedicated a day of campaigning in Michigan, a state that has not backed a Republican for president since 1988.
Up next, a policy speech in Pennsylvania and a rally in Wisconsin, states that also haven’t gone red since the 1980s.
As he tries to chart a path to 270 electoral votes, the GOP nominee’s schedule is marked with long-shot bids and last-ditch hopes. The risky strategy sacrifices face time in battleground states, but the gambit, if successful, would upend the political map.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned this season, it’s that archiving of government records in the digital age can get really messy.
To avoid having that possibility hanging over the end of his time in office, President Obama has dispatched a team to make sure all his cyber records live on – including those that live on social media.
The White House's Digital Transition plan includes an effort to preserve everything “from tweets to snaps” with the National Archives and Records Administration, just as required for more old-school communications like handwritten notes, faxes and, yes, emails.
As her campaign continues to play defense over the renewed FBI scrutiny of emails connected to her private server, Hillary Clinton is again looking to play offense against Donald Trump, with her focus Tuesday on her rival's attitude toward and treatment of women.
At one of three events scheduled in Florida, Clinton will be introduced by Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe who was the target of scorn and ridicule by Trump for weight gain after she won her crown. The event in Dade City precedes stops in Sanford and Fort Lauderdale, her second trip to Florida in three days.
Separately, Clinton's campaign is launching a new 60-second ad that is something of a greatest, or worst, hits of Trump's comments on women, including his infamous boast aboard an "Access Hollywood" bus about grabbing women's genitals. It also shows news reports of recent assault claims against Trump. A message on screen says that anyone who does these things "is unfit to be president."
Ryan said he would not campaign on Trump's behalf after video of a 2005 conversation the nominee had about groping women became public. He reiterated that stance Tuesday, but said that he voted for "our nominee" last week during early voting in Wisconsin.
