Rasmussen poll: Race tightens as Trump loses ground

Rasmussen GOP candidate poll 8-11

A newly released poll shows the GOP primary race is tightening. Before the debate, Donald Trump led the GOP field with 26%. An August 9-10th Rasmussen poll shows that his debate performance and perhaps his comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly may have done some damage. In late July, Trump earned 30% of the male vote and had 22% support among ...

grammar power rankings

A study published yesterday showed that Trump’s supporters are the worst when it comes to properly forming an English sentence. The Grammarly-WSJ study analyzed comments made on all of the GOP candidate websites and picked only supporting or neutral commentary. 250 comments per candidate were chosen at random and analyzed for spelling, punctuation and grammar. The results might surprise you. ...

An Overview of the Fox News “JV” Debate

http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2015/06/2016-gop-primary-debate-schedule/

Thursday night’s so-called JV debate offered little new insight into the candidates. Topics ranged from the American economy, foreign policy, the dominance of Donald Trump in the race and why each candidate’s vision was the best option. Logistically it’s worth noting, with 17 candidates running, a candidate needs to only be polling at 5.9% to achieve a plurality of the ...

GOP Candidates Continue to Toss Money Down Cornhole

The really big difference between Republican and Democrat handout recipients is their ability to be sympathetically photogenic. When pressed, the average Democrat welfare recipient can hide the flat–screen TV, stash the cellphone in a drawer and refrain from cigarette smoking. And it’s not too much trouble to pretend to fill out the job application or limp convincingly to prove the ...

GOP Dreams of 2016

Gage Skidmore (CC)

It’s just a few years down the road, so of course it’s time for the potential GOP candidates for the presidency to start posturing, preening, hinting, and overtly stating that they intend to toss their proverbial hats in the ring. On the latter, sort of, there is the infamous Donald “I’m going to run and then drop out early” Trump. ...

The Day After…

Screen Shot 2012-11-08 at 12.50.27 AM

Well, we lost.  Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably.  BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives.  In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two.  The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans.  In a milestone for the ladies, 20% of the U.S. Senate ...

Why Rick Santorum Mattered

This afternoon, when Rick Santorum dropped out of the presidential race, my heart broke. As a young conservative, for as long as I can remember, the political landscape has been dominated by corrupt career politicians who ignore the voice of their constituents and vote as they please to gain power and riches. It seemed political efficacy was dead. The only ...

Rick Santorum Has Two Weeks Until Judgement Day

Rick Santorum

No, I’m not suggesting that Rick Santorum is going to die. I am saying that April 24th will determine not only whether or not he should even bother going to the Convention this year, but also whether or not he has a political career in his future at all. The only thing saving Santorum right now is that the Romney ...

Is The Fat Lady Starting To Sing?

After winning the trifecta of delegates in DC, Maryland, and Wisconsin Mitt Romney looks like he’s on a roll. Is it time for the other candidates to step aside and allow the Republican Party to begin coalescing? Can Republicans afford for Rick Santorum to stay in the fight? A new PPP poll has Romney overtaking Santorum in Pennsylvania.  How much ...

Rick Santorum and His Uphill Battle to the Convention

Aaron Blake almost got it absolutely right today, when giving the run-down on what Rick Santorum needs to do to survive in this primary. The five states mentioned are definitely must-wins. However, that goal does not exist in a vacuum, and is probably going to be affected by at least a few things that will be utterly out of Santorum’s ...
