WaPo poll: Republicans ready to elect Mitt Romney!
There are two things that I would like you to understand about this graphic from the latest WaPo/ABC tracking poll (the Sunday 49/48 Romney/Obama, if I understand it correctly): For those who can’t see the picture, the WaPo has been asking Republicans why they were going to vote for Romney. In July 2012 only 36% of respondents said that they were voting for Romney, while | Read More »
Chairs, Debates, Hurricanes and The Man Who Never Was
After many months of campaigning, Mitt Romney has finally taken the lead in polling for the election. But why has it taken so long for the American people to catch onto the Mittmentum? It begins with two key events: the Republican National Convention and the Presidential debates. And interestingly, Hurricane Sandy also shows us some interesting insights about how the mainstream media has dealt with | Read More »
MSNBC Host Says “Plane Travel” Adequate Deterrent To Multiple Registration Voter Fraud
MSNBC’s Mellisa Harris-Perry suggested on her show this morning that voters who are registered in multiple states should not be purged from voter registration rolls. She argued that the chances of voter fraud were negligible since it was highly unlikely that anyone would get on a plane and travel to another state in order to vote twice, or three times. Apparently, she forgot that most | Read More »
Baldwin Repeatedly Tried to Create “Department of Peace”
The following was written by Collin Roth and is cross-posted from Media Trackers. Voters in Wisconsin are suddenly becoming more aware of the records of both U.S. Senate candidates, and this is just another example of how radically out of touch Tammy Baldwin is. Since 2001, Rep. Tammy Baldwin has co-sponsored legislation four times to create a federal Department of Peace and Nonviolence. Sponsored by | Read More »
Did Obama Refuse To Aid Our Men In Benghazi?
Read More »
As the evidence leaks out is seems more and more clear that not only did the Obama White House know exactly what was transpiring on the ground in Benghazi, it had forces in place that could have prevented the deaths of at least some of the men who died there. Not only did it stand by and do nothing, it callously refused to send aid even though the doomed men were requesting it.
Richard Carmona (D CAND, AZ-SEN) REALLY wants you to know that he denies ever screaming at that woman.
You hear that? He says that it never happened. Richard Carmona will be happy to keep telling you that, too. Over and over and over again. Background here: the short version is that Carmona’s former boss cut an ad for Jeff Flake documenting alleged crypto-stalking behavior and general anger management issues (as in, Carmona can’t manage his) shown towards said boss by the candidate. Given | Read More »
RedState Interview: Kevin Raye (R CAND, ME-02).
Maine is… interesting, this cycle. The state as a whole is very likely going to go to Barack Obama: but ME-02 is generally considered to be more accessible to Romney. This matters because Maine assigns its Electoral Votes by who wins its two Congressional Districts (with two going to the statewide winner): combine that with a legitimate candidate in ME-02 itself, and you have yourself | Read More »
Did Barack Obama Intentionally Mislead KUSA’s Kyle Clark About ‘Abound Solar’?
President Obama gave an interview to Kyle Clark of Colorado NBC affiliate KUSA. In the interview, which saw the President answer and try to dodge some of the toughest question he’s been asked the whole campaign season, the President claimed the White House has no involvement with stimulus funds going to a company called Abound Solar. The company, as you can guess, is another loser | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ajit Pai comes to RedState on IP Transformation, FCC Reform Needed, Copyright Reform Needed Too?
Regulation must keep up with the needs of modernization. That’s a point new FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai came to RedState to make, particularly with respect to the Internet transformation going on in telecommunications. As the world “goes IP,” and puts everything on the Internet, regulators must adapt. Make sure to read it. Ajit Pai would have a particularly important role as a reformist regulator should Mitt Romney win.
Regulation today just doesn’t make much sense sometimes, a point Broadband for America makes. The point about ‘edge’ vs ‘core’ of the Internet is important. The firm that sits between you and Google is as important to you as Google. They’re all pieces of the puzzle.

Monday Morning Quarterbacks Bother Poor Leon Panetta
You know what? SECDEF Leon Panetta is way too important for any of you to criticize. Unlike the rabble, he knows about running operations. He manages risk. He bristles at the Monday Morning Quarterbacks who deign to question his perspicacity and strategic brilliance in how he handled the tragic events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. He also has a rather pompous 4th point of contact in need of cover and concealment. He throws General Ham, and General Dempsey under the bus below.

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta said, according to The Associated Press. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
An Open Letter to President Obama
Mr. President, What could you possibly have been thinking? The ad you have launched featuring a young actress equating voting for you to a sexual act is offensive to me, to millions of women and to the stature of the office you hold. As a father of two beautiful girls, how could you possibly have allowed this to be aired? Did you approve this? Did | Read More »
Why I Think Obama Is Toast
Barack Obama is toast. This is not something I say lightly. I generally try to remain cautious about predictions, because the prediction business is a humbling one. I have never been especially bullish on Mitt Romney, and I spent most of the summer and early fall arguing that this was basically a neck-and-neck race that would go down to the wire. But in the end, | Read More »
A Wide Electoral/Popular Vote Split Won’t Happen
There is an emerging narrative percolating throughout the political world; the prospect that Romney could win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College. The theory is predicated on the seemingly contradictory data between state and national polls. National polls seem to show Romney with a consistent 2-4% lead, while state polls show the candidates tied or Obama slightly ahead in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. | Read More »
Ukraine Election Update
For those following along, Ukraine is set to have their historically democratic parliamentary vote on Sunday. As previously noted, the parliament of Ukraine recently adopted a new electoral law that changes their voting to a mixed system. 250 members of parliament will be elected by party list and the other 250 members will be candidates representing districts. Mikhail Okhendovskyy, a member of Ukraine’s Central Election Commission | Read More »
Swingometer: Gallup Party ID figures predict solid Romney win
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.
