The Biggest Winner from New Hampshire Was Hillary Clinton
This is not one of those stupid, contrarian takes where I’m saying something just for shock value just to get clicks. Make no mistakes – Hillary Clinton may have lost by about 20 points last night, but she emerged from New Hampshire as the biggest winner of the night, and it was not close. Let’s make one thing clear: Hillary Clinton does not give a | Read More »
Is Chris Christie Dropping Out?
It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, and Christie is (as of this | Read More »
End of the Line for These Three Republicans
Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump is smiling about it all. However, | Read More »
New Hampshire and the Myth of Electability
The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping things family friendly, I’ll let Marlon | Read More »
CNN Projects Winners in NH Literally the Second Polls Close
Based on the exit polling they have seen thus far, CNN has already called New Hampshire for both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, which is not a huge surprise. This indicates probably that the results will not be as close as some would have hoped. The key pieces of drama remain: who will finish second in the GOP? How far behind Bernie Sanders will Hillary | Read More »
MSNBC Calls New Hampshire for Bernie Sanders, and for Republicans, the winner is ….
The polls are closed in New Hampshire. Well … mostly closed. But already MSNBC has called it for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. And for Republicans … Donald Trump. React accordingly. We await what will surely be one of the most … interesting victory speeches maybe in Republican Primary history.

Early NH Reports: Massive Turnout, More Undeclared Dem Voters
The early reports from the ground in New Hampshire indicate a massive voter turnout, likely a record, particularly on the Republican side. According to exit polling data, undeclared voters (which make up the largest bloc of New Hampshire voters) were a higher percentage of the Democrat vote than the Republican vote, although the Republican vote is expected to be higher overall: It’s difficult to | Read More »
Senior Moment: Tech Illiterate Clinton Baffled And Alarmed By Common Tech Terms
The hip young party of hip young youngsters has two people still running for the nomination for President at an average age of 71 years. Of the two oldsters running, one of them today was baffled and alarmed when a hip young voter said his friend’s “selfie” went “viral.” “You went viral?” Mrs. Clinton said to the man’s friend. “That sounds like some kind of | Read More »
Will Hillary Supporters Engage in Some Operation Chaos Tonight?

The campaign is prepared to lose in NH and recover in SC, where Hillary is leading Bernie by a huge margin. Hillary has already turned her attention to the general election, and for good reason. In New Hampshire, non-aligned voters are allowed to show up | Read More »
The Trump Ground Game Is A huuuuge loser
The Donald’s lack of concern or ignorance about the basic technique of American politics surely contributed to Trump’s defeat by the excellent ground game of Sen. Ted Cruz’ campaign. Worse Trump’s failed Iowa effort, led by Chuck Laudner who ran Santorum’s 2012 Iowa ground game, was stronger than Trumps operation in New Hampshire.

Ben Carson is Open to Being Trump’s VP
At this point, it certainly seems like he might be more than open to it, in fact. Even though Trump once said that Carson was “incurably and pathologically diseased, kind of like a pedophile,” Trump has been transparently playing white knight for Carson on the ridiculous allegation that Cruz cost Carson any significant number of votes, and Carson seems to be willingly playing along.

FAIL. Marco Rubio Foils Attempted Troll By Alleged Homosexual
We’ve seen Ted Cruz confront at least two planned trolling efforts head on and come away with no damage. Now we see Marco Rubio can do the same.
