    New Wisconsin Poll is Big News for Ted Cruz

    New Wisconsin Poll is Big News for Ted Cruz

    We’re two weeks away from the Wisconsin primary, which is shaping up to be pretty close to a must-win for Ted Cruz. Even though Wisconsin is proportional, he really needs to continue the narrative that he can beat Trump, and with two weeks between contests, and with another two weeks between Wisconsin and the NY-area primaries, a loss to Trump – even a relatively close | Read More »

    Trump Advisor: Don’t Believe the Things Trump Says

    The really sad thing is, when it comes to foreign policy, I really would be more comfortable believing that everything Trump says is a lie.

    This Primary Will Last At Least Until June. Here’s Proof.

    This Primary Will Last At Least Until June. Here's Proof.

    It’s time to settle in for another 2 months of the Republican primary, at least. Barring some miracle, this thing will not be settled until the final primaries on June 7th. Here’s how to do it. Take any delegate simulator tool – RCP has one, for instance, and set the delegates to current values. Then go throughout the rest of the primary process and allocate | Read More »

    Everyone Hates John Kasich

    Everyone Hates John Kasich

    John Kasich really tried, for very stupid strategic reasons, to compete in Utah. He wanted to at least keep Cruz down below 50% and get a few delegates for himself, even if that meant Trump got some in the process. He utterly failed. His paltry 16.4% of the vote barely beat Trump who is absolutely despised in Utah. More importantly, John Kasich finished fourth in Arizona, despite | Read More »

    Trump Wins Arizona

    Trump Wins Arizona

    The AP and CNN have called Arizona for Donald Trump, as expected. Arizona is the third largest of the winner-take-all states, so it definitely hurts for the whole pile of 58 delegates to go into Trump’s column. However, it looks like there might still be some hope from tonight. First, although it’s far from a foregone conclusion at this point, it looks highly likely that Trump | Read More »

    If Trump Doesn’t Crack 50% Tonight in Arizona, #NeverTrump Has Won

    If Trump Doesn't Crack 50% Tonight in Arizona, #NeverTrump Has Won

    Never before in GOP primary history has a frontrunner gone this long without cracking 50% in a single state. In fact, it’s not even close. We are now three weeks beyond Super Tuesday; by now every other Republican frontrunner since 1976 has run away with the nomination. That’s right, it took the pall of Watergate and the pardon of Nixon to generate a Republican front | Read More »

    So, Florida AG Pam Bondi’s Unhinged Media Relations Stooge Just Called

    So, Florida AG Pam Bondi's Unhinged Media Relations Stooge Just Called

    We just got a very angry email and subsequent very angry phone call from someone claiming to be Whitney Ray, Media Relations stooge for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. I’m going to reprint the email in full for your viewing pleasure, and in case there was any confusion as to what the Florida AG’s office’s stance on the Bondi/Trump fracas is. Also just so there | Read More »

    Sarah Palin Has a New Reality TV Show, and the Concept is Even Worse than You Think

    Sarah Palin Has a New Reality TV Show, and the Concept is Even Worse than You Think

    I have never really watched any of the reality television that has centered around the life of the Palin family, but I gather that it’s entertaining for most of the same reasons that some people find the Kardashians entertaining: there’s good, pleasurable schadenfreude to be had in watching self-absorbed people live out their slow-motion train wreck lives. In the Palins case, you get the added | Read More »

    Trump Foundation Blames “Clerical Error” for Illegal Pam Bondi Contribution

    Trump Foundation Blames "Clerical Error" for Illegal Pam Bondi Contribution

    The backstory on this story is probably pretty well known by now. Right smack dab in the middle of the Florida Attorney General’s Office making a decision on whether to pursue a case against Trump University for Fraud, the Trump Foundation made a sizeable donation to a Super PAC backing Florida AG Pam Bondi. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the State of Florida decided not to pursue a | Read More »

    The Continuing Aftermath of Rubio’s Decision Not to Withdraw Before Florida

    The Continuing Aftermath of Rubio's Decision Not to Withdraw Before Florida

    If Donald Trump ends up getting the Republican nomination, two primary factors will be to blame. The first will without a doubt be John Kasich’s dumb ongoing vanity parade, which seems likely to hand 58 delegates to Trump in Arizona and some smaller amount in Utah by preventing Cruz from reaching 50%. The second will be Marco Rubio’s fateful decision to stay in the race | Read More »

    Here is Proof that Donald Trump is Obsessed with the Size of His Hands

    Here is Proof that Donald Trump is Obsessed with the Size of His Hands

    The ongoing Internet (and real life) mockery of Donald Trump’s tiny hands is admittedly hilarious, but it also tells us something important about Trump’s pathological insecurities. Trump has insisted all along that he doesn’t care about the jabs regarding his stubby fingers, but in an interview with the Washington Post’s editorial board, Trump referenced his own hands a stunning 23 times, all while insisting that | Read More »

    Two New National Polls Released of the Republican Race

    Two New National Polls Released of the Republican Race

    Polling in general has been pretty abysmal during the course of this election season, and national polling has been particularly unsteady. Two new national polls have been released yesterday, one by CNN/ORC and one by CBS/NYT. They show widely divergent pictures of the race, but moreover, they have absolutely no usefulness in predicting the rest of the race going forward, for reasons I’ll explain here | Read More »

    How Many Delegates Will John Kasich win for Trump Today?

    How Many Delegates Will John Kasich win for Trump Today?

    If John Kasich were not still (pointlessly) in the race, Ted Cruz would likely walk away with all 98 delegates that will be awarded today. Based on the polling and the way that Ted Cruz has closed races lately, if he loses in winner-take-all Arizona, it will be close. Probably the margin will be way less than whatever John Kasich brings in. Likewise in Utah, | Read More »

    New Arizona Poll Shows Tight Race for Tomorrow’s Primary

    New Arizona Poll Shows Tight Race for Tomorrow's Primary

    A new poll has been released by Fox Channel 10 in Phoenix, and it shows Trump holding a small but consistent lead in likely Arizona primary voter. It sure looks, at first blush, like John Kasich is going to give Donald Trump at least 58 delegates tomorrow, if not more. Top line result of the poll: Trump 46, Cruz 33, Kasich 17. This poll does | Read More »

    Trump Supporters in Colorado Get Angry when Trump’s Policies are Turned on Them

    Trump Supporters in Colorado Get Angry when Trump's Policies are Turned on Them

    Trump supporters in Colorado are learning the pain that is sometimes associated with the proverbial shoe being placed on the other foot. The source of the most recent controversy came when a Colorado man placed an ad in a local paper that advertised that he was looking for a new downstairs tenant to share the building in which he lived. The only catch? Trump supporters | Read More »
