The Media is Still Doing Whatever Trump Wants Them to Do
It really is disgusting the extent to which the media has begun to panic about the idea that they won’t have Trump around as a Republican frontrunner to drive their ratings anymore. I’ve talked before at length here about the obsessive, symbiotic relationship the media has had with Trump, and how they are clearly dedicated to doing whatever they can to keeping him in the | Read More »
Ted Cruz’s PERFECT Answer to a Reporter on CarsonGate [VIDEO]
Tom Llamas with ABC’s Good Morning America thought he was really going to nail Ted Cruz this morning by confronting him on CarsonGate.

New CNN/WMUR New Hampshire Poll – Rubio Solidifying Hold on Second
A new CNN/WMUR poll of likely New Hampshire voters was JUST released, and it confirms what the daily tracking polls have been showing – that Marco Rubio is surging in New Hampshire and is likely now holding second place by himself.

SMOOTH: Watch Ted Cruz Riff After Sign Almost Falls on Him
This is pretty funny. The walls come tumbling down, and Ted Cruz just turns it into a campaign pitch. This just happened in the last few minutes. “There’s such overwhelming force behind the campaign that it’s pushing the sign over. This is the rising grassroots on display for you.” I like it, but mainly because I can only imagine how the Democrats would have handled | Read More »
BWA HA HA! New Cruz Ad BURNS Trump For Being Endorsed By History’s Greatest Monster
This .. this is truly a thing of beauty. If you saw my post last night, you’re aware of the stunning endorsement that Ted Cruz received last night, by way of NOT being endorsed by the peanut farmer. The honor went to Donald Trump, and for awesome reasons. Now the Cruz campaign has rapidly responded with this awesome ad: . I love this. I am | Read More »

Trump Desperately Trying to Hide the Shrinking Size of His Crowds
There’s a reason why Donald Trump is taking his loss in Iowa so hard – it’s been devastating to his national standing. His standing in the polls might already be falling like a rock, and now it appears that the rolling concert tour that was his national campaign might be coming to an end. Now comes pretty convincing evidence that his crowds are shrinking, and | Read More »
New Hampshire Is Very Different From Iowa
The Republican primary race looks very fluid as we head into New Hampshire, albeit against a backdrop of an enormous lead for Donald Trump in the New Hampshire polls taken before his second-place finish in the Iowa Caucus. It is worth reviewing how the New Hampshire electorate is likely to differ from the Iowa Caucus electorate. Obviously a primary has a much bigger turnout than | Read More »

First National Post-Iowa Poll Shows Trump Taking a HUGE Hit
We have the usual caveats that apply here to all PPP polls, but in defense of PPP, they had Trump at 34%, right in line with everyone else who polled at the time. PPP now finds the race to be fundamentally changed, with Trump dropping to 25%, just barely ahead of Cruz at 21%. The real surprise in this poll is that Rubio is in | Read More »
Watch Bloated Gasbag Karl Rove Carry Water for Donald Trump
Let’s establish two things up front about Karl Rove – 1) he hates Ted Cruz, and 2) he’s a fundamentally dishonest person. Also, while he may have had some success at running a campaign, he is utterly clueless about interpreting and forecasting results, as evidenced by the fact that on election night of 2012, after every network (including Fox News) had called the race for | Read More »
Hillary Actually Said This When Asked About $675K In Goldman Sachs Speaking Fees (VIDEO)
Hillary Clinton is a marvel. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person so brazenly lie at times, know that she’s lying and know the person she’s speaking to knows that she’s lying, and simply not care. Her problem is, she’s not very good at it. Bill Clinton had the ability to make you think, at least for a moment, he was telling the truth. | Read More »
New Hampshire Tracking poll: Guess who fell today?
Since the Harper poll of New Hampshire is pretty bad (landline only, “The fav/unfav numbers are so absurd it has to be a transcription error – Jay Cost, “That poll looks weird” – Harry Enten), we’ve still only got the UMass tracking poll to work with. And in the tracking poll, one candidate is even, one is down, and one is up.
