Checking the polls, Indiana is winnable for Ted Cruz
Lately I’ve been leaning hard on the 538 projections to see where we’re at with the Republican nomination. After a good stretch he’s close enough that uncommitted delegates could get him over the top. But he’s projected to take a near sweep in Indiana. Will he perform?
Ted Cruz Bigfoots Trump’s Big Day with Fiorina VP Announcement
Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that Ted Cruz understands the game that he is playing right now. Objectively, Donald Trump accomplished nothing on Tuesday other than holding serve. He still has to win Indiana and do very well in California to reach 1,237, which means that he’s still in the exact same place he was before Tuesday started. However, Cruz understands that | Read More »
If Trump Loses in November, Don’t Blame #NeverTrump for Keeping Their Word
The only reason I can figure that they are pursuing this insane tack is that they are puzzled to find people who behave in a manner that is different from that of their man-god Donald Trump.

The GOP electorate gave up to Donald Trump last night, but we should not.
Ever since Super Tuesday, and doubly so since New York, the NYC-dominated press has been pushing the line that Donald Trump is the inevitable nominee. While we active few on the Internet are able to break through that message to see what the truth was, most voters are watching Fox or CNN. Fox News has the highest ratings of basic cable now. So last night, | Read More »
Donald Trump Meanders His Way Through A Victory Speech
Donald Trump swept five states tonight, and gave a victory speech from New York City to a largely quiet crowd. After watching the speech for 10 minutes, I figured out why his crowd was so quiet: No one knew what in the hell he was saying. Yes, we knew Donald Trump was going to win. He has taken to calling himself the “presumptive nominee.” He | Read More »
Donald Trump: “I Consider Myself the Presumptive Nominee.”
After Donald Trump’s somnolent victory speech tonight, he took questions from the media. During the Q&A, Trump revealed that he considers himself to be the “presumptive nominee.” Unfortunately, math disagrees with Trump. “Presumptive nominee” means you have clinched the nomination and are just waiting for it to be official. Trump is still about 300 delegates short of that number. So, what Trump considers himself in | Read More »
Nothing that Happened Today Changed Anything
It looks like Trump has swept the Northeast, as he was absolutely expected to do. Almost all of the voting simulations that have happened to date predicted that Trump would get all or nearly all of the delegates today. Save your freakout for another day. It looks like some of the states, Trump will win by bigger margins than expected. Big deal. Cruz has done | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh: Trump Supporters Need to Stop Whining about the Delegates
I don’t think I am going out on a limb here by saying that Rush Limbaugh has been… well, if not friendly to Donald Trump, at the very least not antagonistic to Donald Trump. I’m being generous to Rush here. But even Rush on today’s show acknowledged that even if Trump runs the table today in overwhelming fashion, that doesn’t really change the delegate calculus: it all | Read More »

BREAKING: Cruz Campaign Vetting Carly Fiorina for VP
The Weekly Standard is reporting that Carly Fiorina’s inner circle has confirmed that the Cruz camp is vetting her as a possible VP pick. Obviously, there is a long way to go before then, but in the event that Cruz does emerge from a bruising contested convention, it would behoove him to have a fully vetted VP in the wings. From the WS: Ted Cruz’s | Read More »
Polls confirm it: John Kasich is propping up Donald Trump this week
While Ted Cruz and John Kasich are beginning to work together to stop Donald Trump, but their new deal only affects future states. This week, with 172 delegates on the line, John Kasich’s presence in the race sadly serves only as massive spoiler to help Donald Trump, and the polls confirm it.
If John Kasich Does not Quit, Donald Trump Will Reach 1,237 on the First Ballot. Here is Proof.
John Kasich is out on the campaign trail telling everyone who will listen that no one is going to reach 1,237 delegates on the first ballot, and we are all headed to a contested convention no matter what. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is out there telling everyone who will listen that John Kasich is the only thing keeping him from reaching 1,237. Both are selling lies | Read More »
Here’s Why John Kasich is the Dumbest Man in America
John Kasich has a plan for winning the Presidency: he hopes to make his case at the convention that he is the best candidate to take on Hillary, and get the nomination in the event of an unresolvable deadlock between Cruz and Kasich supporters. The main thing standing in the way of that goal? The John Kasich campaign. People point this out to John Kasich | Read More »
The 7 Most Idiotic, Hypocritical Things You’ll See On Earth Day, GUARANTEED
This year, once again, April 22 is the date for the dumbest holiday on earth, Earth Day. Despite it’s name, it is not a celebration of the Earth or God’s Creation or the majesty of nature but, instead, a wholly cynical pretend “holiday” that is designed to make radical environmentalist wackos seem mainstream and normal so that, ultimately, money can be taken from middle class | Read More »
Donald Trump in New York confirms: Poll averages are dead
Public political polling has been dying for the last 10 years. The end of the landline telephone era and the rise of the Internet have combined to turn it from a reasonably accurate public service, into a farce existing solely to draw clicks.
Polling averages served to take the polls, which were increasingly inaccurate, and piece together some sort of coherent message from them. But now the polls are so wrong, even the polling averages have outlived their usefulness.
