Bernie Supporters Clamor for Sanders to run as an Independent
At least for the moment, the #BernieorBust people are even more dedicated and numerous than the #NeverTrump movement, at least according to their own reckoning. And they are causing Hillary Clinton potentially serious problems in her general election matchups. It’s one thing for Bernie supporters to say they will actually pull the lever for Trump in the general – I doubt many of them will. | Read More »
Neither #NeverTrump nor the Fox poll are what you think they are
I think Aaron Gardner’s #NeverTrump is the most misunderstood idea in politics right now. Specifically, older critics of #NeverTrump are going around flinging out angry, bitter, and flatly ignorant statements designed to counter us, but every time they do it, they simply demonstrate they don’t understand what we’re saying, at all. A great example of this is today’s awful tweet by the once-respected Byron York: | Read More »
New Fox News National Poll: Hillary is in Trouble vs. Trump
We obviously have to include all the normal caveats about polling in general this election cycle, and about national polls this early in the election cycle. With that out of the way, a new Fox News poll released today shows that Trump is actually leading Hillary Clinton 45-42 in a head to head matchup. For whatever reason, Fox News also polled Bernie Sanders v. Trump, | Read More »
Trump’s SCOTUS List is Meaningless because the Word of a Pathological Liar is Worthless
Donald Trump has released a list of people who he is apparently going to consider for Supreme Court nominees to replace Antonin Scalia. Off the top of my head the only two names I recognize are Sykes and Willett, who are of course great nominees. As to the rest, I don’t really plan to do even cursory research about their records, neither do I care. | Read More »
Bernie’s Campaign Manager Accuses DNC Chair of Torpedoing Sanders’ Campaign for “Personal Reasons”
If you can’t believe that the country is really about to be forced to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for President, you can at least sit back and grab some popcorn and enjoy the show while the country goes up in flames. For instance, as much as the Republican party is in disarray, the Democrats aren’t having it any better, as the unexpected | Read More »
Are the Clintons on the Take from TPP Backers?
Unlike the economic illiterates who vote in Democrat primaries (and/or for Donald Trump), I think the TPP is a good idea. If you want to know why, you can read some of my friend Scott Lincicome’s work on the subject – but defending TPP is not the point of this post. The point is that there is a reason Democrat primary voters are having an | Read More »
Trump Laughs As Poll Numbers Rise Amidst Democrat Primary Stupidity
This election really is a dumpster fire. Donald Trump is going to be the GOP nominee despite capturing what will be far less than 50% of the popular vote and Hillary Clinton is so bad as a candidate, she can’t put away an old coot Senator who’s an avowed socialist. Our enemies around the world are likely laughing at this spectacle. David Zucker wouldn’t have | Read More »

Kentucky Primary Vote Still Incredibly Close with Three Quarters of the Vote Counted
Yes even after 73% of precincts have reported in, Kentucky’s Democratic Primary race is still too close to call. At this particular moment, Hillary Clinton leads by about 1670 votes. That’s 46.8% to Bernie Sanders’ 46.3%, per CNN Why do you care? Well the Sanders/Clinton war is getting pretty hairy, with violence breaking out and even death threats being made. And there is a contingent | Read More »
Moderate Dems: Trump Is a “Deal Maker” We Can Work With
Unfortunately, signs indicate that Hillary Clinton will win in November. Instead of placing our best and brightest experienced conservative opposite of her, the GOP offers up a juvenile reality show star. And I used to be excited about this election year. Although they want a Hillary Clinton presidency, Democrats are aware there’s also a possibility, however small, that Donald Trump could be in the Oval | Read More »
Just how bad can it get for Donald Trump in November?
Recently we’ve had the Great Overcorrection going on. People who, like me, underestimated Trump’s ability to win GOP primaries*, are rushing to say that of course he can win the general election. After all, the reasoning goes, they said he can’t in the primaries! Therefore he can win anything! But no, it’s bad. And here’s how bad it can get.
This Anti-Trump Ad Is Brutal And This Is Just The Start
We are at the start of the general election campaign and Donald Trump has given Democrats in the last 10 months alone a crap ton of material to use against him. After what we have seen I cannot entirely discount a Trump win in the general but it is very unlikely. Given that Trump never seems to be able to shut his mouth and has | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Is Finally Taking Bernie Sanders Seriously
She is spending money in Kentucky, has held a bunch of campaign rallies, and is making a play for a state she won in 2008 against Barack Obama.

The Democrats Really want Bernie’s Supporters to Vote for Trump
The Trump Democrats are a real thing, and if their own word is to be believed, they prefer Bernie but would take Trump as a clear second place over Hillary. Establishment Democrats are doing nothing to change their mind; in fact, their message seems to be: “Good. Get out.” After a chaotic weekend in Nevada in which accusations of vote theft, rigged rules and cheating | Read More »
