A coalition of conservative organizations, including Americans for Limited Government, Family Research Council, American Family Association, Turning Point USA, Gun Owners of America, and ConservativeHQ.com have launched AmericaVote.org, an unprecedented get out the vote effort in North Carolina.

Ginni Thomas: Why Trump?

Hillary Clinton’s embrace of two sets of rules would continue to denigrate America, where her limousine liberal donors, the mainstream media and Hollywood elites would benefit, while the government is turned upon the rest of us.

Shrill Hillary's Cheap Shots

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Hillary’s tactic of trying to bait Trump — saying that “he choked” and he called a beauty contestant an “eating machine” — didn’t work as well in this debate as in previous ones. When not clearing out her cupboard of opposition research on him, she was throwing red meat to the special interests of the Democratic Party, promising “free tuition,” LGBT-friendly justices, amnesty, and class warfare.

Why Isn’t Donald Trump Losing Like Barry Goldwater?

David Franke, The American Conservative

So what if Trump wins the popular vote but Clinton wins the presidency in the Electoral College? I see that as a possible national disaster, especially since nobody understands the Electoral College anyway. The electorate on both sides is already more partisan and heated than I can remember since 1964, and Trump will not accept defeat as gently as Al Gore did in 2000.  The results of having two presidential winners—one by popular vote, the other in the Electoral College—could be scary.

Donald Trump's Best Debate of the 2016 Presidential Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last night Trump was the winner on points. However, Trump failed to lay out a clear understanding of the two world views that are on the ballot this election. Hillary Clinton and her Democratic allies’ radical agenda for America mostly went undiscussed.

It’s the System, Not the Election, That’s Rigged

David Ferguson, The American Spectator

As we reach the end of a long and contentious presidential election season, faith in government is approaching an all-time low. Far from being seen as servants of the people, many Americans now see government not as the keepers of justice and peace, but as a corrupt entity.

Finding Strength in Melania Trump

Larry Kudlow, National Review

For Hillary Clinton, I don’t see redemption. She is a corrupt political operative of the worst kind. But for Donald Trump, I may be seeing a way back. And his wife Melania is a big reason why. Melania Trump gave some remarkable cable interviews this week, and she has me looking at the awful last two weeks in a somewhat different light.

#NeverHillary

Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.  We have a binary choice. One or the other will be our next president. Let's be clear if you are a Republican or a conservative and you don't vote for Trump you are helping Hillary Clinton become the next president whether you vote for her or not.

The Cheap Moralizing of Never Trump

William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

Trump's voters support him because they get the contempt dripping from Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton whenever the subject is the things they cherish: faith, patriotism, the decency of ordinary citizens, and so on. Above all, they support him because they also get that the elite contempt for Donald Trump is a proxy contempt for them.

I’m A Sexual Assault Victim Who Still Supports Trump

D.C. McAllister, The Federalist

Trump is my only option at this point to stop the Clintons and the Democratic Party, to put an end to their corruption, sexism, and political agenda that will make women less safe, less prosperous, and less free.

Daniel Oliver: The Easy Case for Donald Trump

Mega-crony capitalist/socialist Barack Obama and his would-be successor Hillary Clinton are the two people on the planet most destructive of traditional American values. Given the binary choice between Trump and Clinton I prefer Trump.

Trump is existential threat to establishment, still has support

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

What I’ve come to discover is that it is the Trump movement, more so than Donald Trump himself, that is an existential threat to the establishment elites on the right and left. They are the front-line victims of government in Washington run amok. One Trump voter said it well to me at a recent rally in Colorado Springs: “All we want from government is less of it.”

Which party will win the Senate and House?

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Turnout has been declining, not increasing, during the Obama years, and the Clinton campaign is clearly worried about low turnout, especially among millennials. The Senate and House contests may turn on which side's turnout sags most.

ABOUT THOSE UNTHINKING, BACKWARD CATHOLICS

It would be wonderful for the Clinton campaign to repudiate the content of these ugly WikiLeaks emails. All of us backward-thinking Catholics who actually believe what Scripture and the Church teach would be so very grateful.

The selective moral outrage of the left

Madison Gesiotto, Washington Times

Politics should not determine our moral outrage, nor should our political affiliations cause us to set different standards for our political opponents. What is right is right for everyone and what is wrong is wrong for everyone. Enough is enough. Nobody should be held above the law and standards should be same for every American.

Neal Freeman: Avarice and Mendacity Have Been the Hallmarks of Hillary Clinton’s Career

The hallmarks of Mrs. Clinton’s long career in public life have been avarice and mendacity. At every stop, she has sought to monetize her public service and then lie about what she did. She should be the last woman President, not the first.

The Moral Depravity of the Anti-Trump Power Grab

Did this lewdest, crudest and most putrid behavior (not talk), ever drive the press and Democratic party elders to call on President Bill Clinton to resign? Never.

Trump Will Win the National Battle for Legitimacy

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

There has never been anything like this in the past century and a half of American history, and it is thankless to predict the outcome. Nonetheless I will: Trump will crush it. Clinton, the major media, the pollsters, and the mainstream Republican Party have badly misread the insurrectionist mood of the electorate.

Trump Pushed The Reset Button In Last Night's Debate

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Trump met and exceeded most people's expectations by a mile. For those voters who don't like America's direction they saw a person who was a credible alternative to Obama's 3rd term.

How Poll Bias Obscures Trump’s Likely Election

Milton Rosenberg, The American Spectator

It follows that the slight Clinton majorities coming from the “closely contested” and electorally crucial states such as Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina may be illusory. If there is a small silent majority for Trump out there it will show from the privacy of the voting booth rather than in the polls.
