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.
Jeb Bush to New Hampshire crowd: Message: Please Care. [Updated with VIDEO]
When George H. W. Bush feeling the pressure in New Hampshire in 1992, his campaign decided that he wasn’t giving the impression that he cared about ordinary folks. He had the problem Mitt Romney had: Pat Buchanan painted him as out of touch with real Americans. So, his campaign had a meeting. After it, he came out and literally said to a New Hampshire crowd | 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.
Where Have All the Governors Gone?
Although the field of candidates this election cycle is not lacking in current and former governors, their performances have been anything but successful. After sixteen years of governors-turned-presidents, in the form of the Clinton and Bush administrations, members of Congress, specifically Senate, are once again topping the polls and leaving governors at the bottom. Governors have executive experience that others, like junior Senators or those | Read More »

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 »

New New Hampshire Polls: The Race Stabilizes With Some Interesting Twists
The two newest New Hampshire polls confirm the trends we’re seeing in other polls. The really interesting polling, however, is in the so-called establishment lane where several candidates could be knocked out by a poor performance.

New Hampshire is Bush’s firewall. What delegates will he get?
While the Iowa caucuses are volatile, and you never know just how the delegates will turn out as rooms full of people get together and make deals, the New Hampshire primary has a simple set of rules for determining the winner. Let’s check the current polling and see who would win delegates there.

The GOP Establishment Is Trying To Elect Donald Trump?
Panic is a very ugly thing. It is a triumph of primal fear over the intellect. It is when “flight” kicks “fight’s” ass. In pre-gunpowder days, armies would hammer away at each other for hours with few losses. Then panic would set in bringing slaughter with it. It is demeaning. It is unmanly. Unfortunately, panic is one of the two modes favored by the GOP | Read More »
Watch Hillary Clinton Laugh As Man Threatens To “Strangle” Carly Fiorina
Both Donald Trump and Carly Fiornia have been criticized by the press for not correcting random citizens who have expressed the opinion that Barack Obama is a Muslim. I don’t think any observer of American politics thinks Obama believes in any higher power than himself. He certainly isn’t a Christian of any vaguely orthodox sort given his membership in Jeremiah Wright’s tabernacle of racism and hate-mongering. | Read More »
The State of the GOP Polling: Trump and Carson, Carson and Trump
We’re still over 3 months out from the first Presidential primary steps for the 2016 race. However it’s still worth looking at where the polls are, remembering that polls this early don’t and aren’t designed to predict the outcome of the primaries, so much as they exist to give us the state of the electorate. I said before that we’d reached peak Trump, and the | Read More »
Rand Paul’s Presidential Pulse Is Barely There
This is another not good sign for the campaign. He needs Iowa, New Hampshire, or South Carolina to spring board into the SEC Primary and he does not have Iowa. It sounds like New Hampshire is not doing well either. His recent fundraising numbers are disappointing, his poll numbers are atrocious in places like New Hampshire where he should be thriving, a former top aide | Read More »
