Hillary Clinton is leading Bernie Sanders nationwide by a crushing 25-point margin, though Sanders bests Clinton in a hypothetical general election match-up against GOP front-runner Donald Trump, two polls released Sunday by NBC News/Wall Street Journal have found.
Ted Cruz's team has a theory about how the next four weeks will go: He will edge out Donald Trump in Iowa, suffer a drubbing to him eight days later in New Hampshire, and then by the third week in February, actually be locked in the "two-man race" that he today confidently predicts the election has already entered.
On Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Donald Trump will speak at the convocation of Liberty University, which was founded in Lynchburg, Virginia, by the televangelist Jerry Falwell and is now run by his son Jerry Falwell Jr.
Bernie Sanders on Sunday rejected the Clinton campaign's assertions that his proposals for single-payer health care would be the undoing of decades of progressive programs and reform.
Hillary Clinton offered Bernie Sanders a backhanded compliment for coming around on a gun control issue, while Sanders expressed his disappointment that Clinton's daughter had been used to attack his health care plan. And Donald Trump weighed in on everything from Marco Rubio's citizenship to his own relationship with a higher power.
A former district attorney in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, claims he agreed more than a decade ago that his office wouldn't use a civil deposition given by Bill Cosby in any criminal matters, an e-mail obtained by CNN shows -- a revelation that could call into question the viability of the criminal case against the comedian.
Marco Rubio on Sunday questioned Ted Cruz's conservative bona fides, accusing the Texas senator of misleading donors and voters as he travels the country seeking support and campaign cash.
Severe weather is blamed for two deaths and five injuries in Manatee County, Florida, local officials said.
Rescuers have expanded their search for 12 Marines missing since their two military helicopters apparently collided in the waters off the Hawaiian island of Oahu.
Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, often seen as a fractured and undisciplined group, apparently has carried out its second major terror attack in two months -- claiming more than 20 lives in the assault on a luxury hotel and two other targets in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso.
Indonesian police have arrested 12 people in connection with Thursday's deadly attack in front of a Starbucks in central Jakarta, including one accused of having received a wire transfer from the alleged ISIS-linked operative suspected of orchestrating the assault, the country's police chief said Saturday.
