Poll: Millenials Deserting Hillary

Voters under the age of 35 aren’t quite the loyal Democratic followers they once were, and new poll indicates that may be cause for concern for the Democrats’ current 2016 favorite.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds millennials — those under the age of 35 — have soured on Hillary Clinton, with her approval rating among that demographic plunging to 42 percent today from 60 percent back in 2009. 

The Democratic party as a whole has seen a similar decline: Over the same period, the party’s approval rating among millennials dropped to 36 percent from near 50 percent in 2009.  

Despite the decline in Democrats’ popularity, Republicans haven’t made up ground since 2009. The party’s approval rating remaining relatively unchanged: It stands at 27 percent today, ticking upward only slightly from 26 percent in 2009.

Pro-Abortion Nonsense from John Irving

The novelist has put up a lot of easy targets in his New York Times op-ed. I am going to take aim at six of his points, starting with his strongest one. First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up

I  like Adam Sandler, and yet you may share the sense of trepidation I get when I see that another of his movies is out. He made some very funny manboy comedies (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) followed by some not-so-funny manboy comedies, and when he went dark, in Reign over Me and Funny People, ...
