U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race against Republican Donald Trump in swing states, a new poll has found.
While Biden has not yet decided on challenging Clinton in the Democratic nomination, a recent Quinnipiac Swing State Poll showed that he leads Trump in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

But against Biden and other Democratic candidates, Clinton still tops the polls among Democratic voters, the report details. more >>

If all goes well and he is able, former President Jimmy Carter will be teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, this Sunday and several Sundays more over the next three months while he's being treated for brain cancer.
If you plan on sitting in on one of those classes, however, you might find the competition a little stiff as the church only seats 300 people and you are not allowed to make reservations.
"Because of the high volume of calls we have been experiencing as of late, we ask for your understanding and patience as we seek to return your call," a recording on the church's voicemail noted when The Christian Post reached out to find out more about the class on Friday morning. more >>

Donald Trump's commanding lead in the polls is a solemn reminder that if we're not careful, another narcissistic good talker will be elected to complete the fundamental transformation President Obama began.
Choosing style and good sound bites over substance got us in the mess we're in with a president who highlights his intellectual shortcomings when he comes up with some real off-teleprompter doozies, claiming our country has 57 states, America is 20 centuries-old, "Austrian" is a language, Canada has a president, and dead heroes are listening in his audience, to name a few.
