FiveThirtyEight election forecast shows Trump ahead

Source: Politico

Political analyst Nate Silver’s latest forecast has Republican nominee Donald Trump with a 15 percentage point-greater chance of beating presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton if the election were held today, according to FiveThirtyEight.

Silver's "now-cast," updated with fresh surveys on Monday, shows Trump's current likelihood of winning at 57.5 percent, compared with Clinton’s 42.5 percent. In the 11 battleground states, Colorado, Virginia and Michigan would go to Clinton, while Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Iowa would go to Trump.

The breakdown shifts a bit between the Electoral College and the popular vote. Silver's model currently predicts the popular vote going 45.4 percent to Trump vs. 45.1 percent to Clinton, but the Electoral College giving Trump a wider margin of victory, 285 votes and Clinton 252.6.

White extremists involved in rally bloodshed ‘will attend Republican convention to defend Trump supp

Source: South China Morning Post

A group of white nationalists and skinheads who held a rally in Sacramento, California, over the weekend where at least five people were stabbed plans to show up at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next month to “make sure that the Donald Trump supporters are defended.”

The violent clash at the California state Capitol accentuates concerns about the RNC, with political tensions high and thousands of pro- and anti-Trump protesters expected to descend on Cleveland.

“I think everybody is concerned about the potential for violence at the convention,” said Ryan Lenz, senior writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremists and hate groups.

Sunday’s mayhem in Sacramento began as the white nationalist group Traditionalist Worker Party, along with the Golden State Skinheads, were setting up for a state Capitol rally. The e groups characterised the rally as a response to aggression against supporters of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Trump.

Man arrested after witnesses say gunman shouted "F*** the ni**ers!" and fired shot at crowded campai

Source: NBC

Beaumont police arrested a white male and were questioning a handful of other individuals at a West End home just hours after an apparent racially-charged shooting at the campaign headquarters of Jefferson County Sheriff candidate Zena Stephens.

Stephens told 12News she was standing outside her headquarters with a group of people in the 500 block of S. 11th Street when a white male in a white Jeep pulled up and shouted "f*** the ni**ers". Seconds later, the man fired a shot into a front window of the building, shattering the glass.

No one was hurt and no bullet was immediately found. Police believe the weapon used may have been a pellet or Airsoft gun. Stephens said roughly 20 other people were inside at the time.

Around 10:45 p.m. Monday 12News was outside a home in the 8500 block of Newfield as Beaumont police arrested a white male wearing a white t-shirt and shorts. Also outside the home was an older-model white Jeep with the same license plate as the shooter's, a witness told 12News.

Democratic Underground's Twitter Presence

I have noticed the DU doesn't have a very large following on Twitter. This may not mean much to some out there, but I think some of the bloggers on here deserve to have their columns exposed. Not only will the bloggers get exposure, but the site itself will get more hits all around. Is there a reason why the site's founders aren't active on Twitter? And I don't mean posting the "pic of the day" every other day, I mean a real presence like Unite Blue has created. I would be willing to volunteer on the DU Twitter page. I am active on there all of the time. If interested please contact me.

Child attempts suicide after being bullied at school for being a fan of My Little Pony

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- An 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after trying to commit suicide -- the victim of bullying at school.

It's not a new problem in North Carolina, but this puts a new face on the age-old problem as Michael Morones remains in WakeMed with a tube down his throat and potentially life-long brain damage.

Michael tried to kill himself, apparently because he could no longer take the torrent of bullying he was facing at school.

"He's the kid that never walks. He dances everywhere," said Michael's mother, Tiffany Morones-Suttle. "He's so full of energy. He's always on the move.

Michael's parents say he was that way even in the face of daunting bullying at school. Michael likes the cartoon "My Little Pony." It turns out, the cartoon has a growing, and perhaps unlikely fan club -- men and boys known as "Bronies."

Because of that, Michael was teased so much that ten days ago he decided to do something about it.

"He hung himself off the side of the bunk bed, off the railing," said Tiffany.

His parents got him to the hospital, but the damage had already been done. Oxygen to his brain had been cut off.

There was something about this story that made me want to spread it around the Internet. Maybe it's b/c we all know how tough it was growing up. I dunno. But if you want to donate toward this kid's medical expenses then GoFund has a page set up for his family. Here it is:

NCGOP seeks ouster of UNC-TV host

Source: WRAL/CBS

RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Republican Party is calling on UNC-TV to break its ties with host and columnist D.G. Martin.

Martin is the longtime host of the popular "NC Bookwatch" program on the statewide public television station. He's also a longtime political columnist whose left-leaning columns appear weekly in publications around the state. The two are separate ventures.

In his most recent column, Martin seems to compare supporters of Republican legislative leaders to apologists for the recently ousted Egyptian government and for the Nazi regime in Germany.

The column in question is titled "Egypt, Nazi Germany, and North Carolina," datelined July 29.

Dem strategist, fundraiser stabbed

Source: WRAL

Democratic strategist Nation Hahn and his wife, fundraiser Jamie Hahn, are hospitalized today after a bizarre stabbing attack Monday afternoon at their Raleigh home.

The couple were listed Tuesday Morning in critical condition at WakeMed. Sources close to the family say Jamie has been gravely injured.

Police say the suspect is Jonathon Wayne Broyhill, a longtime friend of the couple. Friends say Broyhill was best man at their 2009 wedding.

He's been charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Broyhill also was injured in the incident and is hospitalized in serious condition.

There's no indication yet what prompted the attack. Raleigh police say the information they've gathered to date "indicates the events underlying the incident were not domestic in nature."

Family: Clayton woman's body left in towed car after wreck

Source: WRAL

Smithfield, N.C. — Relatives of a Clayton woman said Tuesday that her body was found in her car days after it ran off a highway and was towed off.

Carolyn Ann Watkins' 2000 Pontiac was found in a watery ditch, down a steep embankment off Swift Creek Road, about 4 miles southwest of Smithfield on Friday and was towed to an impound lot, according to a report from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The report states "no driver (was) at the scene of this collision."

Watkins, 62, was last seen Thursday, but her family didn't report her missing to the Smithfield Police Department until Monday, when she failed to show up at work. They say authorities then found her body in the driver's seat of the Pontiac.
