A majority of Americans think President Obama will win re-election next week over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to a poll released Wednesday.
Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod tried to shrug off polls that show the presidential race tightening in states once thought to be leaning or safely in his boss's column by pledging Wednesday to shave his moustache if Mitt Romney wins Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania.
President Obama holds a 5-point lead in battleground Ohio and narrower 2- and 1-point leads in Virginia and Florida, respectively, according to a new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS poll released Wednesday.
Imagine a stampeding herd of angry elephants, and you get an idea of what Democrat Richard Carmona is facing now that he's offended Arizona Republican Sens. Jon Kyl and John McCain.
In a tour of storm damage heavy with political overtones, President Obama will travel to New Jersey Wednesday afternoon to inspect the destruction with Gov. Chris Christie.
President Obama may have suspended his campaign rallies due to Hurricane Sandy, but he managed to squeeze in his campaign slogan — intentionally or not — during a briefing Tuesday with federal emergency officials.
President Obama has canceled his campaign events in Ohio for Wednesday to monitor the response to Hurricane Sandy, the White House announced Tuesday morning.
While not actively campaigning on Tuesday, Mitt Romney has added a new public event to his schedule — an event meant to draw attention to Sandy, the storm that's lashing the mid-Atlantic.
With Hurricane Sandy bearing down on the Mid-Atlantic, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan followed President Obama's lead and canceled their events slated for Monday evening and Tuesday, Republican officials announced Monday morning.
If you live in a swing state, thinking about political ads more than you already have may be the last thing you want to do. But broadcast advertising is the most expensive part of any political campaign, and how candidates use it gives clues about what locations and what demographics they deem important.
President Obama canceled a campaign rally in Orlando, Fla., with former President Bill Clinton on Monday morning and will turn around and head directly back to Washington as weather conditions worsened ahead of Hurricane Sandy's landfall.
President Obama said in an interview aired Monday that his first priority if re-elected would be to push for passage of a debt-reduction plan to cut spending and raise taxes on the nation's highest earners
Sen. John McCain said Sunday that the Obama administration's handling of the consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 has been a "debacle."
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, predicted Sunday that Mitt Romney will win the Midwestern electoral prize on Election Day — and by a larger margin than many expect.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Sunday that issues such as the economy and the Libyan consulate attack are much more important to the nation's voters than controversial comments made by Republican Senate candidates Rep. W. Todd Akin of Missouri and Richard Mourdock of Indiana.
