Donald Trump's Ratings Are Historically Awful
HP | Ariel Edwards-Levy | 03/31/16

Give Donald Trump credit: his candidacy may be unifying the country over dislike for him.

At this point, it might be easier to run down the list of demographic blocs Trump hasn't alienated. He's disliked by Democrats and independents, by young voters, and by minorities, not to mention even the female voters in his own party.

But a member of the Federal Election Commission sounded the alarm Wednesday, explaining that it is indeed true -- and quixotically calling on her chronically deadlocked colleagues to make it stop. ... Read more

Where The March Jobs Were: The Minimum Wage Deluge Continues
ZeroHedge | author | 04/01/16

In March the US economy added a healthy 215K jobs, beating expectations and more importantly, pushing the average hourly earnings up by 0.3% on the month.
