Conservative Talk Radio in Donald Trump’s Pocket
I am by no means an expert on conservative talk radio, but do actually have a highly rated talk radio program. I have filled in for several of the biggest hosts in syndicated talk radio. My radio show is on the most listened to news/talk station in the country or, on its worse day, no less than the number three most listened to talk station | Read More »
George W. Bush Attacks Ted Cruz. Advantage to Ted Cruz.
“I am not aware of George W. Bush criticizing Barack Obama as intensely as he has criticized his Republican Senator in Texas.”I continue to think Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% is on trajectory to be the next President of the United States in a nomination fight against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% and George W. Bush may have just | Read More »
What if Jeb Bush Walked Away?
The Republican Establishment has begun its collective freakout that Donald Trump may win. I have long maintained I’d support Trump over Kasich and would gladly vote for Trump if he is the nominee. But part of me wonders what would happen if Jeb Bush walked away. It may be too late, but early on a lot of Trump’s core support was from people who saw | Read More »
Are all the women at the DNC paving the way for Hillary?
It comes from an anonymous source for the DailyMail, so take this with a grain of salt… Speaking on the condition that she isn’t identified, she told Daily Mail Online that the party is in the tank for Clinton, and the women who run the organization decided it ‘early on.’ The committeewoman is supporting one of Hillary’s rivals for the Democratic nomination, and said she spoke | Read More »
Rand Paul, It Is Time to Take Your Campaign Out Back and Shoot It
“Go home to Kentucky, Senator, and save your Senate seat before Kentucky’s voters take the incompetence of your Presidential campaign as a reflection on you and your Senate campaign.”What is the most endearing moment of Rand Paul’s Presidential campaign is also the most embarrassing. The senator live streamed his entire day yesterday and took questions from people online. At one point, he referred to it as | Read More »
Rand Paul’s ‘Dumb-A** Live Stream’
Those aren’t my words. Those are his words. What an embarrassing end to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88%‘s Presidential campaign. I actually had higher hopes for Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% than this, but he has become an after thought. The latest polling has him trending below two percent, behind Mike Huckabee. He had so much potential. But that | Read More »
It’s Time to Start the Dead Pool on Trump’s Lead
Thus far, Trump’s stay at the top of the polls for the GOP nomination has defied political conventions and expectations. Mistakes and gaffes that would have doomed any other candidate on planet earth have instead bolstered Trump’s standing in the polls. Most traditional pundits have been at a loss to predict when or if Trump’s polling numbers might come back to Earth, because Trump’s support | Read More »
Your Move, Mike Huckabee
Scott Walker bowed out of the race last night because he knew he could not win, and he wanted someone with a positive vision for America to have a chance. To the end, Scott Walker was thinking about the causes he believes in rather than his own personal success – which, sadly, is probably one of the reasons that he was the second candidate to | Read More »
It Is Not Just Scott Walker
There are lots and lots of analyses about Scott Walker dropping out. Yes, he put the people closest to him in a Super PAC that could not talk to him, then surrounded himself with people who do not know him. Yes, there were gaffes and flip-flops galore. There were lots of fundamental problems with Scott Walker. He was the guy who had lots of rich | Read More »
Donald Trump Claims His First Victim
Right now, Scott Walker is putting the final nail in his own coffin in a live press conference, if the undisputed reports from the New York Times and Twitter are to be believed. On the day that Donald Trump announced, Jeb Bush was at 14% and Scott Walker was at 13% in the RCP average, as the two men were first and second in the polls. | Read More »
I Would Vote for Donald Trump over John Kasich
I think it will not be a surprise for most regular RedState readers to learn that I would place Donald Trump pretty near the bottom of my presidential preference list. However, he isn’t the absolute bottom of the list, because that honor belongs solidly to Ohio governor John Kasich. Let me explain. I get that Trump is not a conservative in any meaningful sense of the | Read More »
Ben Carson is Right: Religion is Relevant
Everyone in the media (and some on the right) are in full freakout mode over Ben Carson’s comments about whether we should elect a Muslim to be President of the United States. I’m not sure that I am in 100% agreement with Carson’s sentiments, but I find the caterwauling over the very idea that a person’s religion is a relevant consideration to be patently ridiculous. | Read More »
Trump and Walker down in new CNN Poll. Fiorina and Rubio up.
If the new ORC International poll for CNN is to be believed, Carly Fiorina’s thumping of Donald Trump was noticed. Trump is down 8 points from the previous CNN poll, losing a quarter of his prior 32% support, while Fiorina gained 12 points from a barely-registering 3%. Have we, at long last, reached Peak Trump™?

25 million to ZERO
It is at minimum 25 million to ZERO and it could be as high as 45 million to ZERO. That is the number of people who have watched a Republican Presidential debate to the number of people who have watched a Democrat Presidential debate. It’s not like the Democrats are without a primary process. There’s Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, and some old lady | Read More »
