  • Republican Race Tightens Nationally; Clinton Still Solid (PPP Poll)

    Public Policy Polling ^ | February 4, 2016 | Staff
    PPP’s newest national poll finds the race on the Republican side tightening considerably in the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise loss in Iowa on Monday night. Trump’s lead has fallen to just 4 points- he’s at 25% to 21% each for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, 11% for Ben Carson, 5% each for Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and the now departed Rand Paul, 3% each for Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina, and 1% for Jim Gilmore. Rick Santorum had literally zero supporters on our final poll including him.

    Donald Trump, his aura of invincibility shattered by Iowa caucus voters he once called “stupid,” is throwing a tantrum these days, convinced that Ted Cruz “cheated” and continues to maintain the untenable proposition that in any event he is a not eligible to be President of the United States. Cruz did not cheat in Iowa. Cruz supporters may have indeed cited to supporters of Dr. Ben Carson CNN news reports and tweets that Carson was skipping New Hampshire and South Carolina, so draw your own conclusions, but where were the Carson president captains to shepherd their flock?

It's why so many Americans, including me, have been disillusioned. Personal ambition and conflict are often valued more than honesty, substance and solutions. I'm running for President because it's time for accountability and integrity, and the only way we can make a difference is for all of us as citizens to take a stand. That includes holding the media to account when it spreads false or misleading information -- which is what CNN did at the start of the Iowa Caucuses on...

    Phyllis Schlafly, architect of the modern conservative movement and tireless opponent of mass immigration, says GOP hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% should be disqualified from the race for dishonestly saying one thing about amnesty in English and another in Spanish. "If Jeb's candidacy falters despite the $114 million he raised, the establishment's next choices, Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, have basically similar views," she wrote in her Monday World Net Daily column: Kasich said the 12 million illegals should be "legalized once we find out who they are," and Rubio said Obama's executive amnesty "can't be terminated...

    Jan 28, 2016AUSTIN - Ted Cruz leads a new presidential primary poll in Texas, just over a month before the U.S. senator will face his home-state voters in the much-anticipated Super Tuesday contest. A KTVT-TV/Dixie Strategies survey released Thursday shows Cruz at 30 percent among likely GOP primary voters in Texas. He's followed by mogul Donald Trump at 25 percent, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 12 percent and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 8 percent. That's a change from October, when the same pollsters said Cruz was trailing in Texas behind Trump and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson....

The winning coalition Cruz put together in Iowa won't work in New Hampshire, they say, pointing to the fact New Hampshire has the second-lowest rate of church attendance in the country. So the edge that Cruz had among evangelicals isn't particularly applicable there. "I would advise Cruz to skip New Hampshire and go to South Carolina. I believe you shouldn't compete anywhere where it's not a favorable battlefield to win," said Stuart Stevens, a...

    The one question left unanswered amid the fight over campaigns sharing media reports about Ben Carson dropping out is why the report was so easy to believe in the first place.  Carson’s campaign has been a series of stops and starts over the past few months – with a smattering of book promotion in between.  It is through that prism that Carson’s Florida swing to pick up his laundry was viewed. But first, a look at what happened on caucus night is in order.  Yes, CNN reported that it was “unusual” for a candidate who is “serious” about winning to...

    In the aftermath of Monday's Iowa caucus results, political pundits have had plenty to ponder. One of the biggest headlines of the night was Ted Cruz's resounding defeat of Donald Trump, the unconventional front-runner widely expected to win in the state. Some blamed Trump's second-place finish on his decision to skip last week's debate, which not only gave his competitors an extra chance to address voters but gave some Iowans the impression that they had been "snubbed" by the billionaire candidate. Syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh, however, had a different hypothesis, asserting Tuesday on his program that he does not...
