What’s more, the percentage of those who say they have a negative impression went from 17% to 11%. “Elizabeth Warren seems to be on the verge of to start, to significant and serious progress in this competition,” said Lee Miringoff, Director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, the results of the survey. He added, ‘Position in the debate, it is in a very good position.'”

High stakes for Harris – LAT: “In the nearly eight months since the [Kamala Harris] is officially their White house bid, California, United States senator, in a familiar pattern. Heady heights — your art fully-executed announcement of her Senate grilling of attorney General-nominee William Barr, her outstanding performance in June, the first presidential debate, followed by a longer downturn, which stalled their momentum and will be deleted, the these gains. At the same time, their campaign had, to his strategy to account for the strength of the rivals Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, put more emphasis on the Iowa Caucasus and forcing Harris to climb, against opponents with a significant advantage to Woo the activists and snatched the condition of the political top talent. Now intense pressure for an outstanding performance in Thursday stuck them back in the crowded pack, Harris faces-debate and beyond, larger facility close to the style of the involvement of the voters, which is worlds removed from the TV-driven, media-centric campaigns, you get used to it, in California.”

THE RULES: IT’S ALL GOOD
“But in a representative Republic where the Executive magistracy is carefully limited; both in the extent and for the duration of its power; and where the legislative power is exercised by an Assembly which is inspired, by a supposed influence over the people, with a bold confidence in your own strength… it is against the entrepreneurial goal of this Department that the people ought to indulge their jealousy and exhaust all the precautions.” – James Madison, Federalist No. 48

TIME OUT: THE LESSON OF 9/11
In view of the enormous response we received from readers in the past year, we connect again to our considerations from the previous anniversary of the September 11th: “One of the most sought-after and oft-repeated sayings about 9/11 is the line of the widow of Jason Dahl, the pilot of flight 93, the doomed airliner, perhaps thanks to the courage of passengers and crew, crashed in a former Pennsylvania coal mine, instead of the intended target of the U.S. Capitol. A year later, Sandy Dahl retuned to the scene as part of their mission to build a suitable monument for her husband, and the 39 other Americans who died there was. She said, ‘If we learn nothing else from this tragedy we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.’ Your comments in response, because Dahl expressed what was on the hearts of the Americans. The attacks came struggles in a time of the viscous political power. We had a failed charge two years ago. And only 10 months before the attack, a presidential election had remained unresolved for 41 agonizing days. Cynicism in abundance. We had shared already tight and competitive. We were hateful to each other. We had the party in the country. But no more, we told ourselves. Our new motto would be simple: together we are strong.”

GOP PULLS OFF THE VICTORY IN NORTH CAROLINA
Five thirty eight: “On Tuesday, North Carolina, the host of the most closely watched elections, the exams for the 2018 funds. On paper, it was a Republican, the victorious, going 2-for-2 in two separate elections to Congress. But there was also a silver lining for the Democrats the last vote margin in the night is the marquee race was much bluer than the district base-line partisanship. … The results also provide a continuation of the mini-realignment we have seen in the trump era of the suburbs is always blue, and rural areas, in the direction of the GOP. For example, McCready lost the district even as he won the suburban Mecklenburg County by 13 percentage points, an improvement of the 2018 results, if he won Mecklenburg by 10 points. … McCready has been worse than his 2018 performance in every other county, most of which are sparsely populated.”

He was in the front said on so many issues, including climate change,’ Cortez Masto. … It is unclear whether Kennedy was in serious about running against Markey in a primary, or tries to scare you, the senator in the silence.

Strong on crime and the border, Ben my Complete and Total endorsement has!’ At the end of months of speculation about his plans, Sasse, 47, announced a bid for a second Senate term last week. … Sasse campaign seemed surprised by Trump’s endorsement. “Ben is grateful for the President’s kind words,’ Sasse spokesman James Wegmann said in a statement.”

It accounts for Biden, the second-largest lead (15 points) about Trumpf since the Start of his campaign. And his largest lead (16 points) was just two weeks ago, in a Quinnipiac University poll. Trump-nine-point deficit against sen Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) (52-43) is tied for his second-highest high-quality with national surveys. Sen.

Some said the rejections were simply a cost-cutting measure, but they follow the aggressive steps of the trump campaign and the Republican National Committee in the last few months, Trump strengthen the re-election chances.”

More, why? Because it has to work. It kept us safe — the warrantless wiretaps, the Patriot Act, extraordinary rendition, preventive detention and, Yes, Guantanamo.” – Charles Krauthammer (1950-2018) writes in the Washington Post on Sept. 8, 2011.
