Lol. If someone has to explain it, you’ve got bigger problems. Haha

One hint: South & black vote, for one thing.

Hannity said a few minutes ago that Rubio can now win NH. I am fell out of my chair. Latest poll out of NH showing him trailing Trump by 30 points. So Fox reporting is..

1. Trump can be beat and Iowa proves it.

2. Cruz’s ground came won it.

3. Rubio is the real winner and he can carry this “win” over to NH and SC and win. In addition to losing by 30 points to Trump one week away from the primary, he’s also losing in SC by 20 points to Trump in SC. Neither NH or SC are crazy, confusing caucus states. You go the polling place and you vote then you go home. Trump wins them both going away, inspite of the SC establishment endorsing Rubio. So far no endorsement has meant squat in the state.

Stop with the points and twitter follower counts. When the rubber meets the road, Trump loses. Cruz’s real threat is they hyena Rubio.

You mean there are rubes who, still, are watching FOX News??

Hell’s bells, FOX viewers deserve to be dissed. Who sits for that crap, under any circumstances, when you have CNN and MNBC giving TRUMP fair coverage. Cruz is going to get the same bond fire they set for TRUMP. LOL!

Wouldn’t he be a pleasure giving a SOTU?

Cruz should follow in his father’s footsteps & pursue his true calling.

Cruz’s biggest opponent is Rubio, bar none. Trump needs to call it a night and go back to managing his strip clubs and paying off local politicians to issue eminent domains. That guy has no business running as a conservative.

Trump's primary opponents have been treating him with kid gloves because they want his GOP primary supporters. Look at what happened to Romney in the general. He was a Boy Scout compared to Trump, both in his personal conduct and business dealings. Yet the Democrats made him look like Gordon Gekko. Well - Trump makes Gekko look good.

Their goal is to capitalize on Rubio’s placing tonight and prop him up even more than they’ve been doing the last couple weeks.

We’ll see if the Democrats go after Rubio, or if they keep their powder dry on him.

I think we’re forgetting that Fox News does not claim to be a conservative news network. They are more Republican/conservative-friendly compared to the other networks, that’s all. Some of the commentators are conservative but not necessarily the news anchors or reporters.

It was revolting to watch the coverage. They studied and propped up Rubio exactly as they would if he had been a first class winner. The speech he gave was a typical Rubio rendition with the same words heard before. The RNC version of Obama - deja vu

It's Megan Kelly. She is so snarky . She out snarks Rachel Maddow. At the last debate, she was debating Cruz. It was not the candidates debating each other. I love Breit Beaur, and Chris Wallace. Roger Ailes may be a genius, but he is not infallible. He needs to reign in Megan Kally, and stop the snarkiness!

Well, while I’m not a Fox fan, they did cover Ted’s victory speech. It was very good. But, as soon as Hillary and Bernie were tied in their race, Fox bumped out of Cruz, and stayed the rest of the evening on Hillary .. I guess! I wasn’t watching.

My question is this .. HOW MANY VOTES DID HILLARY GET, COMPARED TO THE NUMBER OF VOTES CRUZ GOT. Fox never showed the actual number of votes (like they did for Cruz), but Fox only showed Hillary at 50% and Bernie at 50%.

I’m really curious about that. Hopefully, Rush will have those numbers tomorrow.

I’ve been watching One America News lately. Seems good. I don’t have tv so I have to hide in the neighbors bushes and...oh, never mind.

Sorry- but I’m more than a little disgusted with Fox and their rino adoring news crews-

Don't apologize. I saw and heard it in the PBS newsettes, too. Those people really dislike Ted Cruz.

Rubio really is the big story out of Iowa. Cruz has been camping out in Iowa for a year now, much like Santorium last time. Cruz had a one state strategy Iowa.

The establishment won in Iowa, Cruz stopped Trump and Rubio benefited. As long as Cruz keep splitting the anti-establishment vote Rubio can consolidate the establishment vote and go on to win the nomination. That is a story out of Iowa. Big win for the uniparty.
