Doug Schoen: Democrats face trouble from population losses in high-tax blue states

Sunday 12:41 GMT

Additionally, Democratic officials from high-tax states must be able to distinctly convey to voters that increases in state taxes are the result of the GOP tax legislation, rather than a result of Democrats championing excessive government spending.

The sweeping overhaul of the federal tax code passed by the Republican-controlled Congress and signed into law by President Trump in December has left both residents and elected officials from high-tax states in a precarious position.

Numb to Outrage, Republican Voters Feel a Deepening Bond to Trump

Sunday 16:24 GMT

Yet many Trump voters said that they no longer had the patience or interest to listen to what they see as another hysterical outburst by Democrats, Republican “Never Trumpers” and the media. “It’s kind of like when you experience a sensation over and over and over again,” said Daniel Arnold, 32, a warehouse manager from Leesburg, Va., about an hour outside Washington.

In interviews across the country over the last few days, dozens of Trump voters, as well as pollsters and strategists, described something like a bonding experience with the president that happens each time Republicans have to answer a now-familiar question: “How can you possibly still support this man?”

Sunday 15:28 GMT

The bomb blast in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa on Saturday has been described by many as an affront to peace and stability raising fears that the country might plunge into political turmoil.

Widely circulated videos on social media show a cloud of smoke and a small explosion knocking over people standing in the vicinity.

The main election strategy of vulnerable House Republicans: Prove they’re not Trump

Sunday 14:32 GMT

The base-first strategy could benefit some Republicans by juicing turnout in the midterms, especially in states Trump won in 2016 and where Democratic senators are running for reelection.

It is people like him, moderate Republicans fighting for their survival in suburban House districts, who are set to decide whether Republicans can avoid losing 23 seats and control of Congress this fall. That is a contradiction with which Trump has not fully grappled, at least in public, where he has begun to declare that his brand of fire-and-brimstone politics is certain to expand Republican legislative ranks this November.

Paul Manafort lawyers want mention of Trump banned in Virginia trial

Sunday 14:32 GMT

Attorneys for former Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, want a judge to bar any mention of Manafort’s connections to the president at his trial in Virginia.

On Friday, Manafort’s lawyers argued that because their client’s alleged crimes occurred before he ever served on Donald Trump’s campaign, any mention of connections to Trump were irrelevant. Lawyers Kevin Downing, Thomas Zehnle and Jay Nanvati wrote: “[T]here is a very real risk that the jurors in this case – most of whom likely have strong views about President Trump, or have likely formed strong opinions as to the well-publicized allegations that the campaign colluded with Russian officials – will be unable to separate their opinions and beliefs about those matters from the tax and bank fraud matters to be tried before them in this case.”

Turkey’s Erdogan Strains to Turn Strongman Rule Into Dominance at Polls

Sunday 13:38 GMT

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is bidding to extend his 15-year rule on Sunday in elections that rivals deem unfair—a growing pattern in countries from Russia to Hungary to Egypt, where leaders are using ballots as a waypoint to cement their authoritarian grip on power.

Since a 2016 military coup attempt that nearly swept him away, Mr. Erdogan has jailed former allies he accuses of plotting the attack and run the country under “extraordinary rule” that allows for exceptional police measures and governance by decree.
