Is there a wird to increase self confidence?

Do 1000 salwat per day, Allahumma Salli ala sayyidna muhammad. Confidence comes from knowing who our messenger sallam is and doing salawat increases that love and understanding and ultimately confidence in ourselves for being in his ummah

Do you advise that some of us support any of the Democratic presidential candidates? Should we be concerned about any of them?

I don’t know if any candidate is much different than the other; ultimately in implementation in terms of national politics, each election year seems same old same old, though made to look like each is going to make change, they can hardly do that when the real president is multi national companies.

Regardless, each of us can make change ourselves and when enough of us do, bi idhni Allah we will have before us a better selection.

We have received information that the mother (of our daughter’s fiancee) practices witchcraft. Is there anything we can recite to break the spell? Does the wadhifa help? Should we do a ruqya regime?

Yes wazhifa helps. You can also do the following:

Imam Ibn Hajr al-Asqalāni and other ulema have narrated that 7 leaves of Sidr should be taken, grinded down, placed into water and then Ayah al-Kursi, Surah Jinn, Surah Kāfirun, Surah Ikhlās, Surah Falaq and Surah Nās should be recited into it – The inflicted should then take 3 sips from it and then bathe with the rest.

You should do the bath 7 days in a row, and then after that, couple of times a week, or more until affects are removed…

Bi idhn Allah, Eating 7 Ajwa dates daily or when unbalanced feelings come on, will help insha Allah.
The general protection from magic is to do:

the Mu’awithatayn [falaq and naas], surat al-Baqarah and the verses regarding Prophet Musa and magic —see ayas below—not missing prayers, praying and supplicating at night, staying in wudhu, constantly reciting the Tahlil and salawat.
