  • Study: Women give more to charity than men

    SEATTLE (AP) — Women across nearly every income level gave significantly more to charity than men, nearly twice as much in some cases, according to a study by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.

    Nonprofits have long suspected that women were the driving forces behind many of the gifts they receive, but they haven't had much proof. But the results of this study are so decisive and consistent, they can stop wondering, said Debra Mesch, director of the university's Women's Philanthropy Institute.

  • Election Day is already over for early voters

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Election Day is already over for more than 3 million Americans, and a surprising number of them are Democrats.

    Republicans clearly are gaining ground in turning out early voters compared with their showing two years ago, but figures from the first batch of states that offer clues about 2010 early voting patterns still give Democrats an edge in a number of states and big counties.

  • NM gov candidates square off in final TV debate

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's candidates for governor are facing off in their final debate of the campaign.

    Republican Susana Martinez and Democrat Diane Denish meet for an hour-long, televised debate Thursday night in Albuquerque. The debate airs at 7 p.m. on KOB-TV.

  • AP-GfK Poll: Likely voters ready to embrace GOP

    WASHINGTON (AP) — All signs point to huge Republican victories in two weeks, with the GOP now leading Democrats on virtually every measure in an Associated Press-GfK poll of people likely to vote in the first major elections of Barack Obama's presidency.

    In the final survey before Election Day, likely voters say the GOP would do a better job than Democrats on handling the economy, creating jobs and running the government.

  • Obama's 4-day campaign swing is his longest yet

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Two years ago, presidential candidate Barack Obama drew 60,000 people to a riverfront park rally in Portland, Ore. Another 15,000 couldn't get in.

    But political organizers don't expect huge crowds when now-President Obama returns to Portland on Wednesday for the first time since that campaign heyday. Instead, the goal is for a far more modest showing of 5,000 people at a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Kitzhaber at the convention center.

  • 'Nays' defeat the 'Ayes'

    “I never vote for anyone,” W. C. Fields supposedly once snorted. “I always vote against.”
    Judging from comments I’ve been hearing lately, whole gobs of prospective voters are approaching their polling places this year with much the same mindset.
    Another whole batch of prospective voters reportedly has no intention whatsoever of approaching their voting places this year.
