    (Recent News - June 19 2018 - 2:30 PM:)
    <>

    Just over half of voters continue to believe some of the nation’s top cops may have acted illegally to keep President Trump from being elected. Those most familiar with a just-released Justice Department internal report detailing high-level political bias are even more convinced that there was wrongdoing.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s likely that senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Trump from winning the presidency, with 36% who say it’s Very Likely. That compares to 50% and 32% respectively when we first asked this question in February.

    Thirty-nine percent (39%) still say it’s unlikely that these top officials broke the law in an effort to stop Trump, including 24% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Ten percent (10%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    (Recent News - June 19 2018 - 1:30 PM:)
    <>

    All of a sudden, everyone on the left wants "free markets in energy policy." As someone who's advocated for that for, oh, about three decades, this riff should be music to my ears. But is laissez faire energy policy really what liberals are seeking?
