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.

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 »
Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize…Just Like Obama!
Donald Trump, the politically unaccomplished king of nasty, insulting, junior high-type behavior, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yes, you read that correctly. It is yet another example of how eerily similar Barack Obama and Donald Trump are to each other. Both have created a cult of personality where substance is lacking and emotion rules the day. Remember how absurd it was that the brand | Read More »

New Hampshire Momentum: Marco Rubio gaining fast
UMass and 7News have started a New Hampshire tracking poll. That’s nice because it gives us daily feedback on the race, letting us catch sharp changes in the polling. That’s where Marco Rubio comes in. He may not have won Iowa, but for his campaign it was as good as a win.

Why Jeb! Should Be Re-evaluating His Run
Jeb Bush spent about $25,000 for every vote he got in Iowa. He outspent everyone just to stay barely competitive. He came in sixth place, behind Rand Paul (who may or may not be wondering whether risking his own Senate seat is worth it at this point), which is a frankly embarrassing finish for someone who spent so much. Why is Jeb Bush still in | Read More »
