Take A RedState Presidential Electability Poll!
A lot of the presidential discussion right now is operating on three levels: who would be the best President, who has the best chance (or any chance) of being the nominee, and who has the best chance (or any chance) of winning the general election. Here’s your chance to weigh in, and argue your case in the comments. The electability poll – who are you | Read More »
This is how I expect Clinton to beat Sanders in South Carolina
Most of our attention is on the Republican race moving south, but the Democrats are doing the same thing. Bernie Sanders has competed well with Hillary Clinton in two rural, northern, white states. But as the race moves to South Carolina, at least two of those attributes change, and that leads us to how I expect Hillary Clinton to start winning states convincingly.
Fiorina’s Candidacy Is a Win Because She Stood In Contrast to “Victim” Hillary
Carly Fiorina ended her bid for the White House on Wednesday, after a dismal placing in the New Hampshire primary, but she made her mark as a presidential contender in a way no one else before her had done. We’re used to seeing Republican women run for Congress, obtain the position of governor, or even take on the rare role of vice presidential nominee. But | Read More »
Marco Rubio Looks To A Brokered Convention For the Nomination

SIEGE: Near-Confrontation As FBI Surrounds Last Four Oregon Occupiers
Four “protesters” remain at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, and last night, a confrontation nearly came to a head while some 60,000 listened live to a broadcast phone call with the armed citizens and some off-site supporters. You can replay the entire four hours of broadcast here, or you can see highlights that I live-tweeted in the storify at the end of this post. | Read More »
And Then There Were Some: The Race After New Hampshire
The New Hampshire primary is now well in the bag, and candidates are down here in the Carolinas campaigning. Some folks are out, and others had a bad week. Who has room to complain? Nobody. Except Carly. Maybe. First of all, the casualties: Both Christie and Fiorina are out. That’s the main shake-up. But there is also karma to deal with. After all, Bernie got | Read More »
Trump Retweets ‘White Genocide’ Account … Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One
Tonight, once again, Donald Trump retweeted a tweet from an account with the username “@WhiteGenocideTM”. This may sound familiar to you, because he has done this before, from the exact same account. Here is tonight’s retweet: And here is what CNN reported back in January: The profile — with about 2,300 followers — used the name “Donald Trumpovitz,” linked to a website containing a pro-Adolf | Read More »
The Worst Family Feud Contestant of All Time?
Sometimes we have to have some non-political posts otherwise we will all go crazy. This video was simply too good not to share with all of you. I am a huge fan of Family Feud, and there have been a lot of terrible contestants, but this one might very well be the worst ever. The video is long, but worth it. Keep watching, it gets | Read More »
Donald Trump: We’re Going To Keep Common Core (Updated)
That’s right. Donald Trump, in South Carolina, came out in favor of Common Core education standards. Has he not been paying attention? Common Core is wildly unpopular in South Carolina. The state had originally implemented the standards and then rescinded them after a public backlash. Jeb Bush, at a Heritage Action forum in South Carolina was booed over the issue. Yet, here he is: Re: | Read More »

Donald Trump Lives in Fantasyland
I know this is not really news to anyone, but Donald Trump is more clueless about the limitations of government power than Bernie Sanders is. His strategy for dealing with the challenges posed by the world at large sounds at all times like a not-very-informed seventh grade Model UN contestant. Here he is, on CBS, explaining how easy it is, in what passes for his | Read More »
Trump Says Calling Cruz A P*ssy Helped Him Win New Hampshire Primary
More Donald Trump values on display in an interview this morning on “Today”. Everyone was having a good time so a potential future leader of the free world saying “f*ck” businesses and calling a fellow Republican primary candidate a “p*ssy” is totally fine, moms and dads. Anyone can grow up to be President and act like Leo Getz! (Language warning, obviously.) What can we expect | Read More »
New Hampshire Primary By The Numbers
The 2016 New Hampshire primary results look like two political parties in a race to self-destruct. New Hampshire was bad news for Hillary Clinton, and worse news for Marco Rubio. Let’s run through what we learned with the final vote totals in, focusing mainly on the Republican side: 1. Republican Turnout Remains High: More voters cast ballots in the Republican than the Democratic primary in | Read More »
How Many Other Publications Let The Clinton Campaign Do Their Writing For Them?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign always expected to be walked right into the Democratic nomination for president, and after her embarassing defeat in the 2008 election cycle, she began laying the groundwork to make herself inevitable following Barack Obama’s administration. The media, which the Clinton’s whine and moan about being against them, have done the lion’s share of trying to show that she is not only inevitable, | Read More »
