Paul Ryan’s Announcement About Bernie Sanders Could Backfire

By: Lucy Tiven@lucytiven

At a Friday speaking event, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stressed the importance of voting in congressional races to a group of Wisconsin Young Republicans. But he let something slip that reached quite a different audience: supporters of Vermont. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Ryan argued that it was important to cast ballots for Republicans in Senate and House races to block the “liberal progressive” agenda of a Hillary Clinton administration, according to a report by the local Badger Herald.

“If we lose the Senate, do you know who becomes chair of the Senate Budget Committee?” Ryan asked. “A guy named Bernie Sanders. You ever heard of him?”

Sanders supporters liked the sound of that.

Daily Kos blogger Kerry Eleveld offered a forecast of what Sanders might do as Budget Committee Chair.

“Sanders might try to expand Social Security,” Eleveld wrote. “He might look for ways to ease the burden of college debt. By god, he had a “Medicare for All” platform.”

Some Sanders supporters used the hashtag #bernthesenate to encourage voting for Democrats in down-ballot races.

As ATTN: has reported previously, Sanders’ base largely comprises young voters galvanized by his campaign’s focus on making college affordable and eliminating income inequality.

Sanders continues to enjoy higher favorability ratings than Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to Huffington Post and Real Clear Politics polling averages. For the many young voters still lukewarm on Clinton, Ryan’s warning could serve as unintended motivation to head to the polls.

In recent weeks, Ryan has distanced himself from Trump and focused instead on maintaining Republican majorities in the House and Senate, as the Week reports.

On a conference call last Monday, Ryan told fellow-Republicans he would no longer defend Trump and instructed them to make judgment calls about their own endorsements.

It’s true that Sanders, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Budget Committee, would be in line to chair it if the Democrats regained control of the chamber.

But he could also be assigned to chair another important Senate committee like Labor, Education, or Health, the Nation reports.

“He will chair a significant committee if we win the majority,” Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) told the Nation.


CBS poll: Clinton’s lead over Trump widens with three weeks to go

By Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto – CBS News

Following the second presidential debate and controversies surrounding both campaigns, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has expanded to nine points now nationally. Forty-seven percent of likely voters support or lean towards Clinton, while 38 percent support Trump.  Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets 8 percent of likely voters, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein receives 3 percent of the vote.  Two weeks ago, Clinton’s lead was four points.

In a two-way match-up where third party candidates are not named explicitly, Clinton leads Trump 51 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, including leaners.

This poll was conducted amid allegations by a number of women accusing Trump of inappropriate sexual advances, and the leaking of a high level Clinton campaign official’s emails.

Who’s supporting whom?

Trump has lost some support among members of his own party. Seventy-seven percent of Republicans support him now, down from 84 percent before the Access Hollywood tape and allegations of sexually aggressive behavior surfaced.

Hillary Clinton opened up a wide lead among women voters after the first presidential debate and she continues to get strong support from that group, leading Trump by 19 points among them. If this advantage holds on Election Day, it would be the largest margin for a Democrat among women going back to 1972 when exit polls were first conducted. Trump has lost some ground with men and older voters. He now has just a two-point edge among men; he led by 11 points earlier this month.

Trump leads with white voters overall, including white men, but the race is close among white women. Republican Mitt Romney won white women by 14 points in 2012, according to exit polls.

Trump continues to struggle with black voters, more than eight in 10 of whom are voting for Clinton.

Whites without a college degree remain some of Trump’s strongest backers – he leads Clinton by 19 points among them – while Clinton is ahead of Trump among white voters with a college degree.

Expectations among voters that Clinton will win the election continue to rise. Regardless of which candidate they support, 63 percent of registered voters expect Clinton to finally win the 2016 presidential election; 26 percent expect Trump to be the winner. Nine in 10 Clinton voters (94 percent) think their candidate will win, while 61 percent of Trump supporters say he will win. A quarter of Trump backers expect Clinton to prevail.

Most Negative Campaign Ever?

After a contentious second presidential debate, allegations of improper sexual contact, and leaked emails, 82 percent of voters say this presidential campaign is more negative than previous ones, a jump of 15 points just since September and the highest figure in CBS News Polls.

This view is held by majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents.

Trump and Clinton: Recent Controversies

So far, Trump’s comments about making advances toward women on a decade-old video are having a more negative impact on him than the leaks of Clinton’s Wall Street speeches are having on her.

Forty percent of registered voters say they have a worse opinion of Trump as a result of his comments on the video, though most – 56 percent – say their opinion is unchanged.  Women (44 percent) are more likely than men (36 percent) to have a worse opinion of Trump as a result of his comments.

Watch: Trump continues denying sex assault allegations

As for the alleged excerpts of Clinton’s speeches, 68 percent of voters say those have no effect on how they view Clinton. Twenty-four percent say they think worse of her, rising to 40 percent among Republicans.

Even among voters who have heard or read a lot about the speeches, six in 10 say the excerpts do not change their opinion of her.

It should be noted that more voters nationwide have heard or read about the Access Hollywood recording than have heard about the leaked emails reportedly containing Clinton’s speeches.

Eighty-five percent of registered voters have heard something about Trump’s comments, including six in 10 who have heard a lot.

On the other hand, half of voters have heard or read something about the transcripts of Clinton’s Wall Street speeches, including just 21 percent who have heard a lot.

Enthusiasm and Strength of Support

With three weeks to go until Election Day, most Clinton and Trump voters say their minds are made up.  Ninety-three percent of Trump voters and 94 percent of Clinton voters say they are sticking with their candidate.  Voters choosing a third-party candidate such as Gary Johnson or Jill Stein are far less secure in their decision.

Just over half of each candidate’s supporters strongly favor their candidate. Those voting for Johnson, Stein, or another third-party candidate are largely doing so because they dislike their other options.

Forty-five percent of Trump voters are very enthusiastic about voting this year, compared to 42 percent of Clinton voters.

This poll was conducted by telephone October 12-16, 2016 among a random sample of 1,411 adults nationwide, including 1,189 registered voters.  Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Media, PA.  Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones.

The poll employed a random digit dial methodology. For the landline sample, a respondent was randomly selected from all adults in the household. For the cell sample, interviews were conducted with the person who answered the phone.

Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish using live interviewers. The data have been weighted to reflect U.S. Census figures on demographic variables.

The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample and the sample of registered voters could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups may be higher and is available by request. The margin of error includes the effects of standard weighting procedures which enlarge sampling error slightly.

The sample of likely voters is modeled among registered voters (N=1,189), assigning each respondent a probability of voting based on their responses. The margin of error for the sample of likely voters is plus or minus three points. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.


Martin Lawrence Shares Touching Tribute to ‘Martin’ Costar Tommy Ford

Entertainment Weekly

Chancellor Agard

Martin co-creator and star Martin Lawrence on Wednesday honored his costar Tommy Ford, who passed away at the age of 52, with a moving tribute on social media.

“My brother,” Lawrence began his Instagram post. “We were friends way b4 the Martin show & I’m glad we were able to show true friendship on-screen. You brought a lot of love to the world and you will be greatly missed. God Bless to you and the family. Rest In Peace my brother.”

Ford, who played Lawrence’s best friend on the ’90s sitcom, died on Wednesday in an Atlanta hospital, PEOPLE confirmed. According to TMZ, the actor was hospitalized due to a ruptured aneurysm in his abdomen and was placed on life support.

“Tommy was not only a great costar but he was a great man and friend,” said Lawrence in a statement to EW after his friend’s passing. “He always brought with him his spirituality a positive attitude and so much joy. I am sad the world lost a great talent and that I lost a wonderful friend. God bless him and his family.”

The Ford family also released a statement: “It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of our beloved Son, father, brother, husband, and friend Tommy Mykal Ford. On behalf of the family, we would like to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming. Please respect the privacy of the Ford family during our time of grief.”


Second debate reveals Trump’s last-ditch strategy: Double down on everything

Andrew Romano

For 48 hours his campaign had been in full meltdown mode.

Donald Trump’s response? To let Trump be Trump — and then some.

There was, of course, the tape heard round the world — the one with him bragging that he can “grab” women “by the p****” simply because he’s “a star.”

There were the unprecedented defections: more than a dozen sitting Republican senators and scores of other GOP officials tripping over each other to declare they could no longer in good conscience support his candidacy.

There was the defiant “apology” video; the conservative pleas for a new nominee; the weekend spent hiding out, huddling with friends and family, in his namesake Manhattan tower.

By the time Trump sauntered onstage at Washington University Sunday night for the second debate of the 2016 presidential election — his odds of winning the White House dwindling, his remaining options unclear — pretty much everyone in America was asking the same question:

Which Donald Trump would show up in St. Louis?

Minutes later the answer was obvious: the Trumpiest Trump ever. “I pledge to be a better man tomorrow,” Trump had said in his apology video. But during the debate he wasn’t a better man. He was the same man, only more so.

This was the Trump that the alt-right website Breitbart had championed all cycle. The Trump that the loyalists who spent the weekend at Trump Tower encouraged him to be. The Trump that your neighbor with the “Hillary for Prison” T-shirt keeps posting about on Facebook.

This Trump went to 11.

Never before has a presidential nominee of either party behaved on a debate stage the way Trump behaved Sunday night. Much of what he said would have seemed inconceivable in past presidential forums.

In a direct breach of the tradition of nonpartisan rule of law, for instance, Trump promised that, if elected president, he would appoint a special prosecutor to go after Hillary Clinton.

Clinton tried to laugh it off. “It’s just awfully good,” she said, “that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”

“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump snapped — seemingly unaware that, after a democratic election, the winner doesn’t imprison his political opponents.

Trump went on to liken Clinton to “the devil.” He said “she has tremendous hate in her heart.” “We have a divided nation,” he added, “because [of] people like her.” When talk turned to Capt. Humayun Khan, the decorated Muslim American soldier who died in Iraq and whose parents have spoken out against Trump, the Republican blamed his death on Clinton, claiming that “if I were president at that time, he would be alive today, because unlike her … I would not have had our people in Iraq.” (Fact checkers have shown that Trump initially supported the war.)

Instead of displaying sincere remorse for his lewd remarks about women — “this is locker-room talk,” he repeated five times — Trump decided to play a political version of “I am rubber, you are glue,” summoning several women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct to a surprise pre-debate press conference and immediately pivoting to the former president whenever moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz asked about the “Access Hollywood” tape.

“If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse,” Trump said. “There’s never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that’s been so abusive to women.”

In fact, Trump seemed to conclude, the whole firestorm was somehow his opponent’s fault. “When Hillary brings up a point like that and she talks about words that I said 11 years ago, I think it’s disgraceful,” he said. “I think she should be ashamed of herself.”

Whenever Trump had a choice — dial it down or dial it up — he chose the latter. Despite charges that he has been cozying up to Vladimir Putin, he defended Russia throughout the debate, at one point going so far as to throw his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, under the proverbial bus for suggesting that Putin’s provocations in Syria need to be “met with American strength.”

“He and I haven’t spoken,” Trump said. “And I disagree.”

Trump frequently whined to the moderators for favoring Clinton — a favorite complaint of conservatives everywhere. Of his late-night tweet storms — which some critics see as impulsive and unpresidential — Trump would only say, “I’m not un-proud of it, to be honest with you.” And when pressed by Cooper to reveal once and for all whether he has used a $916 million loss to avoid paying personal federal income taxes since 1995, Trump brazenly admitted that he did.

“Of course I do,” he said. “Of course I do.”

When the dust settled Sunday night, most headlines described the debate as “vicious” — and many blamed both candidates equally. “Clinton and Trump got vicious during tonight’s debate,” read an alert from the official Washington Post account. “He threatened to send her to jail; she attacked his treatment of women.”

To be clear, though: threatening to undermine the rule of law is not the same thing as criticizing your opponent for saying he likes to grab women by their genitalia.

Quoting Michelle Obama, Clinton telegraphed her strategy early on.

“When they go low,” she said, “you go high.”

To be sure, Clinton took her shots at Trump for the tape. “I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is,” she said. “Because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign. We have seen him insult women. We’ve seen him rate women on their appearance, ranking them from one to 10. We’ve seen him embarrass women on TV and on Twitter. … The question for us, the question our country must answer, is that this is not who we are.”

But then, having clearly decided it was Trump, not she, who needed to change the trajectory of the campaign, Clinton sat back, played it safe and let him attempt to do just that.

The commenters on Breitbart will be pleased with the path Trump chose. So will the 35 percent of voters who will back him no matter what.

But the rest of the country — including much of the Republican Party — may not be so charmed.

In truth, Trump’s options were limited. Clinton was already well ahead in key battleground states before the “Access Hollywood” tape came out, and his chances of convincing college-educated female swing voters to change sides collapsed after its release. So why not rally the base? With the GOP establishment ditching him in droves, the die-hards are pretty much all he has left.

The problem is that there aren’t enough people in Trump’s base to win a presidential election. As the debate itself fades from memory, and as the post-debate spin cycle begins, the Clinton campaign will continue to weaponize key moments on social media and elsewhere — an art it perfected last month with Alicia Machado. It certainly came away from Sunday’s encounter with plenty of ammo: the jail comment, the tax confession, Trump’s habit of looming behind Clinton every time she spoke and so on.

Meanwhile, the GOP is facing its own conundrum. With Trump now toxic among swing voters — and refusing, it seems, to reach out to them in the final weeks of the campaign — down-ballot Republicans have an impossible decision to make. Do they repudiate Trump and move to the center, thereby risking the support of Trump’s reinvigorated base?

Or do they stick with an emboldened Trump and his ever-defiant fans — and go down with what seems to be a sinking ship?

After St. Louis, the battle between Trump and his party may actually be more interesting than the battle between Trump and Clinton.

Teen kills father, opens fire on schoolyard in South Carolina, authorities say

Harriet McLeod

CHARLESTON, S.C., Sept 28 (Reuters) – A 14-year-old South Carolina boy shot and killed his father then drove to an elementary school playground where he wounded two children and a teacher with a handgun before being tackled by a firefighter who held him for police, authorities said on Wednesday.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, was accused by police of fatally shooting his 47-year-old father, Jeffrey DeWitt Osborne, then driving a pickup truck about 2 miles (3.2 km) to Townville Elementary School where he crashed into a fence surrounding the playground.

After the teenager began shooting, volunteer firefighter Jamie Brock pinned him down while staff led children to safety inside the building, Anderson County emergency services director Taylor Jones told a news conference.

Police arrived within seven minutes of a teacher calling 911 to take the suspect into custody at the school in Anderson County, near the Georgia state line about 100 miles (160 km) northeast of Atlanta. The shooter never entered the building, said Chief Deputy Keith Smith.

Authorities do not know the motivation of the shooting but ruled out race as both the shooter and victims were white.

U.S. schools have taken added security precautions since 2012 when a gunman shot and killed 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Brock, a 30-year veteran of the Townville Volunteer Fire Department, was hailed on social media as a hero and credited with preventing another school massacre.

“(He) was there in the hot scene and risked his life to mitigate this incident,” Jones said. “He just used enough force to take him to the ground.”

One of the victims, 6-year-old Jacob Hall who police say was shot in the leg, remained in critical condition, Greenville Health System spokeswoman Sandy Dees said.

The other boy and a female teacher were treated and released, said Ross Norton, a spokesman for AnMed Health Medical Center. The boy, who local media reported was 6 years old, was shot in the foot and the teacher in the shoulder, authorities said.


Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Captain Garland Major told reporters he did not know the relationship between the shooter and those wounded at the school.

Authorities said the suspect was home-schooled and called his grandmother who went to his home and found the boy’s father had been shot.

“She could not make out what he was saying because he was crying and upset and so they went to the house … and that’s when she discovered her son and called 911,” coroner Greg Shore told a news conference on Wednesday night.

Immediately after the shooting, armed officers guarded students as they were evacuated from the school and taken by bus to a nearby church, local media said. Television images showed police swarming the school, with some officers on the roof while others moved around the building.

Jamie Meredith, whose daughter is in kindergarten at Townville Elementary, told WYFF news that she panicked after getting word of the shooting. Her daughter is OK but described a scene of scared and crying children.

“I’m just scared,” Meredith said through tears as she was interviewed by WYFF. “I don’t even want her to go to school now.”

About 280 students attend the school.

The incident was the latest in a series of shootings at U.S. schools that have fueled the debate about access to guns in America.

Earlier this month, a 14-year-old girl shot and wounded a fellow student at a rural Texas high school and then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is due to meet with law enforcement officials in the area this evening, Jones said.

Post-debate poll: Hillary Clinton takes round one

Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of Monday night’s debate by 62% of voters who tuned in to watch, while just 27% said they thought Donald Trump had the better night, according to a CNN/ORC Poll of voters who watched the debate.

That drubbing is similar to Mitt Romney’s dominant performance over President Barack Obama in the first 2012 presidential debate.
Voters who watched said Clinton expressed her views more clearly than Trump and had a better understanding of the issues by a margin of more than 2-to-1. Clinton also was seen as having done a better job addressing concerns voters might have about her potential presidency by a 57% to 35% margin, and as the stronger leader by a 56% to 39% margin.
The gap was smaller on which candidate appeared more sincere and authentic, though still broke in Clinton’s favor, with 53% saying she was more sincere vs. 40% who felt Trump did better on that score. Trump topped Clinton 56% to 33% as the debater who spent more time attacking their opponent.
Although the survey suggested debate watchers were more apt to describe themselves as Democrats than the overall pool of voters, even independents who watched deemed Clinton the winner, 54% vs. 33% who thought Trump did the best job in the debate.
And the survey suggests Clinton outperformed the expectations of those who watched. While pre-debate interviews indicated these watchers expected Clinton to win by a 26-point margin, that grew to 35 points in the post-debate survey.
About half in the poll say the debate did not have an effect on their voting plans, 47% said it didn’t make a difference, but those who say they were moved by it tilted in Clinton’s direction, 34% said the debate made them more apt to vote for Clinton, 18% more likely to back Trump.
On the issues, voters who watched broadly say Clinton would do a better job handling foreign policy, 62% to 35%, and most think she would be the better candidate to handle terrorism, 54% to 43% who prefer Trump. But on the economy, the split is much closer, with 51% saying they favor Clinton’s approach vs. 47% who prefer Trump.
Most debate watchers came away from Monday’s face-off with doubts about Trump’s ability to handle the presidency. Overall, 55% say they didn’t think Trump would be able to handle the job of president, 43% said they thought he would. Among political independents who watched the debate, it’s a near-even split, 50% say he can handle it, 49% that he can’t.
And voters who watched were more apt to see Trump’s attacks on Clinton as unfair than they were to see her critiques that way. About two-thirds of debate viewers, 67%, said Clinton’s critiques of Trump were fair, while just 51% said the same of Trump.
Assessments of Trump’s attacks on Clinton were sharply split by gender, with 58% of men seeing them as fair compared with 44% of women who watched on Monday. There was almost no gender divide in perceptions of whether Clinton’s attacks were fair.
The CNN/ORC post-debate poll includes interviews with 521 registered voters who watched the September 26 debate. Results among debate-watchers have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points. Respondents were originally interviewed as part of a September 23-25 telephone survey of a random sample of Americans, and indicated they planned to watch the debate and would be willing to be re-interviewed when it was over.
