For the past four years at Loyola University Maryland I have come to find lifelong friendships, amazing mentors and, by the grace of God, a date. I was also able to discover the reason why Donald Trump is president: Overly liberal professors pushing conservatives to the edge.
The primary season is ending as it begun, with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as the presumptive nominees. Current polls show Clinton with a comfortable lead. But polls this early in the game are notoriously unreliable.
It is interesting to listen to Donald Trump supporters talk about how they are voting for him because Hillary Clinton can't be trusted and Sen. Ted Cruz is "Lyin' Ted." Yet they seem to be deaf to the daily falsehoods coming out of their candidate's mouth.

Last week, we came to realize that neither of the two leading Republican candidates has the chops to step into the Oval Office.

Donald Trump, who polls show has a significant advantage in the state, rallied thousands of supporters in a massive aircraft hangar in Hagerstown. Former President Bill Clinton, meanwhile, took to the pulpit at African American churches in Baltimore on behalf of his wife.

Republican president hopeful Ted Cruz rallied supporters at a Towson American Legion post Monday afternoon, reminding them that for once Marylander voters' primary ballots actually matter and urging them to help him stop Donald Trump from securing the party's nomination.
The gloves were off the other night in the latest debate between Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The verbal slugfest confirmed not only their personal dislike, but also their basic disagreement on how each proposes to govern if elected in November.
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, making his first campaign swing through Maryland on Wednesday, predicted that his party would reevaluate the race when it meets in Cleveland for its national convention this summer and will choose a nominee who can win the presidency in the general election.
