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.
New York Times Says Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Are Not Latino

Ben Carson is a Surprisingly Petty and Dishonest Person
Up until this week, pretty much everyone would have said that they liked Ben Carson, and that he was clearly a nice, decent man – regardless of whether they thought voting for him for President was a good idea or not. His response to the “going to Florida” controversy has revealed a completely different side of Ben Carson that we never really knew existed before. | Read More »
Marco Rubio’s Challenge To Barack Obama’s Mosque Speech Causes the Left To Have A Cow
Yesterday, Obama spoke at a Baltimore mosque that has been linked to terrorism. But it was Marco Rubio’s critique of Obama’s speech that has the left pooping their pants.

Rubio Faces the Expectations Monster
I remember about fifteen years ago I was watching an interview with legendary Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo about whether he ever felt pressure on his job, even though he was pretty much personally responsible for turning Michigan State into a perennial powerhouse. I’m sure Izzo wasn’t the first person to make this point, but he was the first person I ever heard say it. He | Read More »
VIDEO: This Is The Single Greatest Recap Of The Iowa Caucus
Everyone has been scrambling since Monday night to bring to you their interpretation of the Iowa caucus. We’ve had plenty of breakdown here at RedState, and we will continue to have it, but no one – not a single person or group – has broken down the Iowa caucus like the group behind this video (Warning: Animated Violence). Cable news should use 3D animated violence, | Read More »
Brad Pitt And Angeline Jolie Had Custom Handguns Made And They’re Pretty Awesome
Brad Pitt, aside from being a very underrated actor, is one of the new people in Hollywood that doesn’t rail about gun violence while at the same time, making movies where he does nothing but shoot people. His wife, Angelina Jolie, while doing a lot of humanitarian work, and certainly not the conservative her Dad, Jon Voight is, doesn’t say much politically and reportedly doesn’t | Read More »
OK, I Changed My Mind, THIS Endorsement Is THE Game Changer!!
So first I thought this endorsement was a big boom (for Ted). Then I was convinced there was nothing bigger than this un-endorsement. Then Kasich got this amazing counter endorsement. But those were all just the warmup. THIS .. THIS is the one. If he had to choose between Cruz and Trump for the Republican nomination, Carter chuckled, “I think I would choose Trump, which | Read More »
