President Barack Obama believes America is safer since he became president, he could win a third term and Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is a "great publicity-seeker" who will not win the White House.
Speaking in a pretaped "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday, Obama told Steve Kroft that while he believes Trump has tapped into genuine discontent among "at least Republican primary voters" the real-estate mogul won't be sitting in the Oval Office at the end of the election cycle.
"Well, I think that he is a great publicity-seeker and at a time when the Republican party hasn't really figured out what it's for, as opposed to what it's against. I think that he is tapped into something that exists in the Republican party that's real," said Obama when asked to share his thoughts on the candidate by Kroft. more >>
The Iowa caucuses have a history of propelling late surge candidates in presidential races. Will there be a 2016 dark horse?
If the Iowa caucuses were held today, notable Iowa radio host Steve Deace believes Ted Cruz or Ben Carson would emerge victorious on the Republican side while Bernie Sanders would capture the coveted race for Democrats.
Deace called the track record of polling in the race "a joke," saying the outcome depends on the organization and effectiveness of the candidate's ground game. The Iowa Caucus has produced many surprise winners over the years who have benefited from a late surge. more >>

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that if elected, he'll send Syrian refugees back out of America. Trump warned that some of the refugees seeking asylum in the United States might be operatives of the Islamic State terror group, which he said would be "one of the great tactical ploys of all time."
"If I win, they're going back," Trump told supporters at a speech in Keene, New Hampshire, on Wednesday, BBC News reported.
President Obama has said the U.S. will take in an additional 10,000 refugees from Syria in 2016, seeking to help Europe with the ongoing migrant crisis. more >>
Presidential candidates seeking the Evangelical vote will be speaking to a sold-out crowd of 7,000 potential voters at a Texas megachurch in mid-October.
Sen.Ted Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Sen. Rick Santorum and Carly Fiorina have already confirmed their attendance and will be expounding on their views to attract support from this coveted interest group during the Oct. 18 forum, sponsored by Prestonwood Baptist Church and the Faith & Freedom Coalition at the congregation's Plano campus.
"As Christians, we're interested in all the issues: marriage and family, sanctity of life, wealth and poverty, racial reconciliation, immigration, human trafficking, justice, and so much more," said Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, to The Christian Post about the church's first-ever candidates' forum. more >>
Thousands of Christian conservatives gathered in Washington, D.C. over the past three days, as presidential candidates sought their grassroots support for the 2016 election. Late Saturday, Senator Ted Cruz won the straw poll of attendees at this tenth annual Values Voter Summit with three other candidates also in double digits.
While the straw poll indicates a measure of Evangelical and social conservative support, these results are far from the only newsworthy aspect of the summit. On Friday, as the summit was carried live on several national TV networks, social media trends indicated the event as one of the nation's most-discussed topics.
Many candidates — including Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Mike Huckabee, former Senator Rick Santorum and Governor Bobby Jindal — delivered their most comprehensive remarks to date on the sanctity of human life, forcefully calling for the federal government to cut off all taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. more >>
