WASHINGTON (AP) — With the November election often seen as a contest about which party can get people excited enough to come out and vote, a new poll suggests the campaigns of whoever is nominated may have their work cut out for them. The new Associated Press-GfK poll suggests that a majority of Americans believe none of the remaining candidates for president represents their opinions at least somewhat well. And many say they'll be disappointed or even angry if a front-runner is nominated.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new poll suggests Bernie Sanders is the most likable of the lot when it comes to potential presidential candidates. The Associated Press-GfK poll says more Americans have a favorable, rather than an unfavorable opinion of Sanders by 48 percent to 39 percent. That's the best net-positive rating in the field. Hillary Clinton gets unfavorable ratings from 55 percent of Americans, while a whopping 69 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Republican Donald Trump.

BRUSSELS (AP) — The Belgian Federal Prosecutor's office says the investigation into the Brussels bombings is a 24-hour operation and announced today that two more men now face charges.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Today is a special day for Democrats who are likely to use equal pay day to ridicule Republicans for inaction on the issue. President Barack Obama, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Maryland Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski and other Democrats are speaking at a women's equality event in Washington. Republicans who control the House and Senate have announced no plans to act on legislation addressing pay inequity.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Another sign of spring is coming from the militant Taliban, who once again vow large-scale attacks as part of the start of the warm-weather fighting season in Afghanistan. It's the 15th year of their war against the U.S.-backed Afghan government. The insurgents control several rural districts and last year seized the northern city of Kunduz and held it for three days.
