Steve MacDonald, author of Granite Grok, posted on June 26th the wonderful new candidate survey AFT-NH is distributing, which is centered on two words: “money and power.” McDonald stated that: The entire survey is dedicated to asking whether you will do anything to curb public union power or will vote to change how public union [...]
James O’Keefe of ACORN and NPR-busting infamy released another video expose that shows how easy it is to obtain ballots to vote by assuming the identity of dead people. Rich Mitchell is the Sr. Managing Editor of Conservative Daily News. His posts may contain opinions that are his own and are not necessarily shared by [...]
James O’Keefe’s latest video – in which several election officials in New Hampshire handed out ballots for dead people – has a lot of people talking about the issue of requiring photo ID at polling places. But for me, it immediately brings up a different question. Why should it be illegal to videotape public officials? [...]
A few days ago I authored a post about the insanity of the Department of Justice and the NAACP as they prepared to bring suit against South Carolina in protest of recent voter i.d. laws enacted there. South Carolina officials feel requiring citizens to present identification at the polls would cut down on voter fraud. [...]
Say what you will about Ron Paul, but the man can work a crowd.
Mitt Romney’s long-expected triumph in New Hampshire came to be and yet .. nothing changed. New Hampshire is home to all of 12 total delegates in the GOP nomination fight where 1,144 are required to secure the republican spot which means having won the state doesn’t put Romney much closer to the end goal. With [...]
As soon as the polls closed, major outlets such as Fox News wasted no time in calling the election for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Holding 35%+ of the vote throughout the first hour of vote counting, Romney has undoubtedly taken the top spot while Ron Paul has shown well at just under 25% of the [...]
At 12:00am on Tuesday January 10th, the first votes were cast in Dixville Notch, NH in keeping with a tradition that’s been around since 1960. While Iowa holds the first GOP caucus, New Hampshire holds the first winner-take-all primary of the election season. The primary is not a closed primary, but doesn’t meet the full [...]
Saturday night’s Republican debate has to go down as one of the worst debates of the year, and maybe even in history. It was hosted on ABC and moderated by Diane Sawyer, George Stephanopolous and some other dude who disappeared half way through; there was some question as to whether or not Diane Sawyer was [...]
Saturday at 9pm Easterm, ABC, Yahoo! News and WMUR teamed up to produce the first of two New Hampshire GOP debates this weekend. Poll after the debate: [poll id="35"] Participants: Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum Moderators: Diane Sawyer, George Stephanopoulos and local TV anchor Josh McElveen Replay: <as soon [...]
Mitt Romney knows he was iced in Iowa, and he is now panicking about both New Hampshire and South Carolina. His talking empty-head, Karl Rove, may be spouting platitudes, but “panic” is the watch word. Romney must win, and win hugely, in New Hampshire. If he does not than we can all look forward to hearing his “I’m getting behind the Republican nominee” speech.
Not to be deterred by a poor 5th place finish in Iowa last night, Texas Gov. Rick Perry tweeted the following: And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State…Here we come South Carolina!!! Perry spokesman Mark Miner said Perry would stay in Texas until Friday. After that he will head to New [...]
Rick Santorum opened his Iowa-closing speech by saying, “Game On!” alluding to his significant (almost) surprise ( to everyone but CDN) win in Iowa despite spending next to nothing, riding around in a borrowed pickup and being far down in the polls. After the initial reports, CDN called the race for Santorum based on the remaining counties, [...]
