Re: Ted Cruz Issues "Voting Violations" In Iowa

I have no problem with putting the public information on it, but using the word "violation" in big red letters on both the envelope and on the document inside? That word is used to imply that people receiving the mailer are violating the law by not voting. While I agree that most people should recog...

Re: Trump will win Iowa and New Hampshire

What a lousy answer and non-follow up :barf Cruz is such a slimeball... And it was a legitimate question. I'm no fan of Obamacare but the reality is there are millions now who depend on it and whoever the republican candidate is better have an answer for that question in the main debates. I used to...

Re: Trump will win Iowa and New Hampshire

Cruz stumbled twice in recent days, one of which at an event where he failed to have sympathy or compassion for a guy whose brother was saved from cancer thanks to coverage he got from Obamacare looked incredibly bad... He also completely dodged a question during the debate from I believe it was Br...

Re: Trump will win Iowa and New Hampshire

Some interesting drop-out predictions (via CNN's Political Predictions Market) Odds candidate will suspend his/her campaign before the New Hampshire primary: 1 percent - Bush, Rubio, Cruz, Christie, Trump 2 percent - Kasich 82 percent - Fiorina 84 percent - Rand Paul 89 percent - Carson 99 percent -...

Where are you coming up with those numbers? A very recent ABC News poll suggests otherwise:

Trump will win...New Hampshire?

I don't see anybody else beating him. Avoiding the debate last night ended up being yet another unorthodox, yet savvy political move. Most headlines are reading that Rubio and Cruz had mediocre performances at best last night. Trump continues to hold on to a 3 to 7 point lead in Iowa, I don't see th...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

Until some candidates polling at 3+ start dropping out, I just don't see much change nationally. About all that has really happened over the past month is that Carson has fallen considerably with most of his supporters going to Cruz with a few to Trump. Bush continues to fall with his support I thin...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

So my next prediction for another 3 weeks out: Trump 34 Cruz 20 Rubio 18 Carson 9 All others < 9 Looks like I nailed it again. Average of 3 most recent polls: Trump 34 Cruz 20 Rubio 12 Carson 8 I don't think much changes between now and mid-January. Christie is starting to improve, I could see him ...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

I think Trump has more staying power than Carson and that Carson has peaked. I predict Carson's numbers will slowly slide and that his supporters will split between Trump, Rubio, and Cruz. I stand by my prediction that Kasich will be the next major candidate to drop out. Polling soon to look someth...

Re: Another Outrageous Lie From Donald Trump

The footage is already there. 3000 hours of it spanning 7 days and 20 stations for anybody who wants to to sift through: https://archive.org/details/sept_11_tv_archive I have to believe that if the video really exists, somebody would have cited it by now. Otherwise, this sounds more like the search ...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

After the attacks in Paris, Carson is done, IMO. I've seen a few of his recent appearances on tv and his complete lack of foreign policy knowledge is going to do him in. He's already taken a 3-4 point hit in the national polls, I expect that number to keep falling until he eventually announces he is...

University of Missouri walkouts / football team

With the backing of their head coach, football players at Missouri are threatening to stop participating in any football activities until the president of the university system is fired or resigns. In a late afternoon statement, though, the president declined to do so, saying instead that the schoo...

Re: Democrat Debate

Bernie Sanders made Hillary Clinton look like a Republican. The fact that he is polling as well as he is is scary.
