Among Republicans, CNN poll shows a tight race between Trump and Carson
ORC International conducted a poll for CNN asking about the 2016 Republican race. The headline number says Donald Trump 32, Ben Carson 19, and the rest in single digits. Page 29 of the PDF though says that among Republicans, it’s a much tighter race than that.
I expect Donald Trump to do better in Caucuses than in Primaries
Remember Ron Paul? He never had a chance to win the GOP nomination. He was so far outside of the party mainstream, on so many issues, that he was never going to go anywhere. He did however have a strong third place showing in the Iowa caucuses in 2012. The key to understanding how that could be, is to understand the layers of support every | Read More »
We’re About to Witness the Greatest Show in Washington
Folks, we are about to witness the greatest show in Washington, D.c. It is coming to you within days. In fact, if you know where to look, it is already happening. For decades, the GOP and Pro-Life groups have been pouring in money from people who want to stop the killing of innocent children. Now we have videos of Planned Parenthood pulling whole children from | Read More »
The Establishment can’t even criticize Trump correctly
My distaste for Trump is well documented at this point, but when I read this evening about Hugh Hewitt’s interview of Donald Trump, I was struck by how terrible Hewitt’s whole line of questioning is. Hewitt – who gave Harriet Miers a “solid B+” and thought that was good enough – has essentially declared that Al Gore would have been a better President than George | Read More »
A look at the GOP Presidential polling four and eight years ago
It’s often misunderstood what polls do. Some are under the false impression that the purpose of a poll is to predict the election results. That’s not quite true, though close to the election, the difference doesn’t matter. However this far out, the difference means everything. Polls measure the current feelings of the electorate. The further out you get from the election, the more detached the | Read More »
Five Reasons to Think Everything Will Be Okay
At this time, plenty of people out in the Online Right have placed their faces firmly in their palms and have not stopped shaking their heads. The reason? The primary system, which has started well over a year away from the actual 2016 election has paved the way for Donald Trump to gain and maintain a quarter of the vote in virtually every poll in | Read More »
Congressional Republicans To Keep Organ Harvesting Alive and Babies Dead
Congressional Republicans are coming up with every excuse imaginable to avoid having to defund Planned Parenthood. Right now they’re going with the “let’s investigate” card. They think that if they just probe deeply enough they’ll have enough ammunition to attack the Democrats. Yes, that would be the exact same Democrats who have seen the same videos everyone else has seen and decided it is no | Read More »
In defense of Ben Carson on the Border
Dennis Welch, local reporter for KTVK-TV in Arizona, made an outrageously worded report on Twitter about Ben Carson which he clarified right after. This report (I assume by design) sparked a wave of outrage against Ben Carson on Twitter. However I think that he’s probably right on border security, and here’s why.
Has Trump peaked? One poll doesn’t tell us that.
The Real Clear Politics 2016 nomination poll chart appears to be showing that Donald Trump has peaked, and is on the way down. But if you dig past the pretty picture, it’s not clear that’s the case.
Heritage: Nearly 300 Cases of Voter Fraud Across America
The Left likes to shoot down the initiatives like Voter ID laws by claiming that there is little to no voter fraud in America. Conservatives know that they could not be further from the truth. Fortunately for us, the Heritage Foundation has been compiling a list of all the voter fraud cases around the country. As of right now, they have counted almost 300 of | Read More »
Here at the Redstate Gathering, we’re going to be hearing from most of the Republican Presidential candidates. As they all arrive, the debate is going to be what’s on their minds, and on the minds of their campaign staffers. Whether they did well or not, what they do here will try to build on or recover from the debates, because debates matter.
Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try.
Republicans in the Congress are beginning to use the word “try.” They will try to defund Planned Parenthood. But the President has a veto and they do not have the votes to override the veto. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 41% has moved from try to “can’t.” He says Republicans cannot defund Planned Parenthood because of the President’s veto. This is really, really | Read More »
Republican Leadership Failures Caused Donald Trump’s Rise
I’ll be filling in for Herman Cain from 9am to 12pm ET today talking about this. You can listen live at http://wsbradio.com. The number one thing you hear when you ask any Republican about Donald Trump is this — he fights. You hear it from Rush Limbaugh. You hear it from other talk radio show hosts. You hear it from the base. You hear it | Read More »
GOP candidates to actually discuss education in August; Democrats are… meh, whatever.
We do should be doing four- or five-candidate panels on EVERYTHING, from education to foreign policy to social issues to, heck, what’s good on television these days.

Oh, gee: the Democrats are ‘rebranding.’ AGAIN.
The Democrats are trying to rebrand. Because apparently they’re still convinced that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with their ideas.
