  • Iowa Democratic Party rejects audit of caucus vote (cheating ticks off socialists)

    **SNIP** McGuire, whose state organization, like the national party apparatus, is solidly behind Clinton, rejected the request, telling the Register in an interview Tuesday, "These are the final results." Democrats have never released actual head counts in Iowa caucuses, and McGuire flatly said they would not be released this time either. On Thursday, the Register published an editorial headlined, "Something smells in the Democratic Party," denouncing state party officials for refusing to agree to an audit or release details of the voting. "What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period," the Register wrote. "Democracy, particularly at...

    The Guardian ^ | 2/05/16 | Ben Jacobs
    In the Iowa Democratic party's chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest. In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the Iowa Democratic party decided to shift one delegate from Sanders to Clinton on the night and did not notify precinct...

    While their embeds in the field may never have specifically reported that Carson was out, the network's live coverage - which included star anchor and face of CNN Anderson Cooper - not only operated on the assumption that Carson was withdrawing, but actually included speculation of where his voters would go after Carson left the race. Cooper even said Carson's stated reason - that he was going to Florida to get fresh clothes - for not going directly to New Hampshire like the other candidates "has got to be the weirdest explanation I've heard." One of Cooper's panelists then suggested...

    New York Daily News ^ | February 2, 2016 | Dan Good, Adam Edelman
    Iowa pollsters' losses were Ted Cruz's gain Monday night, as even the most storied surveys of the Hawkeye State's electorate missed the Texas senator's surging momentum. Cruz cruised to victory in the early-voting state's caucuses, easily beating bombastic billionaire Donald Trump 27.6% to 24.3%, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finishing a close third, with 23.1%. But polls, even ones released just hours before voters headed to caucus-locations, showed Trump in the solid lead: A Quinnipiac University poll out Monday afternoon had Trump beating Cruz 31% to 24%, while a Des Moines Register / Bloomberg Politics survey out the day before...

    Perhaps the most significant general election news from last night in Iowa that's not being reported: According to ABC News, more than 180,000 Republican Iowans voted in the first 2016 caucus, compared to the previous record of only 121,000 people in 2012. Early Tuesday morning, the Iowa Democratic Party announced that 171,109 Iowans participated in its caucuses. That's a fall from 2008, which saw 239,000 Iowans vote in the Democratic caucuses throughout the state.

Meanwhile, Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) finished stronger than expected, beating poll estimates by six percentage points; Trump finished more than four percent below expectations, while Cruz finished nearly four percent above expectations.

    FiveThirtyEight provides two projections for each race: A "polls-only" model that is based solely on public polling within a particular state, and a "polls-plus" model that additionally factors in national polling and endorsements from sitting governors and members of Congress. Looking at the Monday-night Iowa caucuses, the two models are more or less in agreement about each party's favorites: businessman Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In the Republican race, the polls-plus model gives Trump a 46% chance of winning, compared with 39% for Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, 14% for Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and...

Bannon and Washington political editor Matt Boyle, which was broadcasting from Des Moines. Progress Iowa is a nonprofit organization that describes itself as "powered by a community of more than 30,000 progressives, focused on research, education, and advocacy." Sinovic described Sanders as "a movement candidate that has caught fire" competing against Clinton, who has a "broad, broad base of support" culled from a prior campaign.

    SIOUX CITY, IOWA — Sometime Monday night or Tuesday morning a storm is forecast to hit here. At first it will probably be rain. Then heavy winds. Then snow. Blizzard conditions are possible. If the blizzard came Monday afternoon it would dramatically suppress voter turnout at the caucuses. Currently, that's not in the forecast. Weather.com, as of 8 p.m. Central on Saturday night, says that in the 6 p.m. hour Monday, when voters would be heading to the caucuses, there's a 40 percent chance of rain and maybe snow in Council Bluffs, at the western end of Iowa.

    The headline on this endorsement from the New York Times editorial board sounds more plaintive than aspirational: A Chance to Reset the Republican Race. Sure, it is … if one ignores practically everything that has driven the primary race to this point and hearken back to a time when tenure in the party establishment was considered a boon rather than a handicap. Plus, one has to dismiss practically everyone else in the field with substance-free one-liners.Mission accomplished, I guess: More than a half-dozen other candidates are battling for survival. Jeb Bush has failed to ignite much support, but at least...

    The battle to be the Republican choice for president has been nasty, brutish and anything but short. The hope among some Republicans is that the Iowa caucuses on Monday and the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9 will promote a candidate who can appeal to the half of their electorate that doesn‘t support the two current front-runners. Those two, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, are equally objectionable for different reasons. Mr. Trump has neither experience in nor interest in learning about national security, defense or global trade. Even unemployment figures, which he’s pegged at 23 or 42 percent (the correct...

If that gives you comfort or plays to your own preferences, be my guest. I certainly wouldn't want to make you uncomfortable. But even if you believe that, try also to understand that Kasich's campaign is done. You can stick a fork in it. He will not be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. Recent endorsements from two New England newspapers prove that. Kasich continues to plug away in New Hampshire, hoping that lightning will strike and...

    New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities. The Globe urges them to support John Kasich, whose record as governor of Ohio shows him to be a pragmatic, fiscally responsible executive, but one who is also concerned with helping the poor. His success in that important swing state, and his record as a moderate conservative who is willing to compromise in pursuit of results, suggests he...

    Gov. Kasich has a secret. He hides it well as he peddles his plain-spoken, real-deal, son-of-a-mailman sales pitch as a Republican presidential candidate in New Hampshire. The secret is secure with Kasich loyalists. Mr. Kasich is mum about the details, but a left-leaning blog with an emphasis on Ohio and national politics is on the right track. Plunderbund suggests "a scandal begging to be born" is bubbling in the governor's home state. Out-of-state media are oblivious to the disgrace at the Ohio Department of Education. Team Kasich has effectively kept the story under wraps on the campaign trail. [ ]...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare expansion passed another exciting milestone last month: $6 billion in new federal spending!Can you believe how generous Kasich is with your money? He’s a regular Prince of Light and Hope.Medicaid benefits for Ohio’s 650,000 Obamacare expansion enrollees cost $406 million in December. For context, that was more than the state’s higher education and criminal justice spending combined.If you’re a fan of Obamacare, this represents a rip-roaring success. If you’re not, I should clarify that we are, in fact, talking about the John Kasich who is running for president as a Republican.Since January 2014, Kasich’s...

    CONTOOCOOK, N.H. - Voters at a VFW hall and a senior center peppered the candidate with questions about global warming, income inequality and raising the minimum wage. They pressed for plans to invest in renewable energy and save Social Security. The presidential hopeful on the receiving end, however, was not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders - it was Republican John Kasich, whose chances of advancing beyond New Hampshire's primary in 20 days likely hinge on winning over supporters who are more likely to vote for those two Democrats than for Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. The two-term Republican governor of...

    Ohio Governor John Kasich is comparing candidates like Donald Trump to the “Prince of Darkness” while declaring himself as the “Prince of Light and Hope.” “Look, we have a lot of candidates who are like the ‘Prince of Darkness,’” Kasich, who reminds voters frequently that his father was a mailman, said in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt. “I consider myself the ‘Prince of Light and Hope’ and I don’t spend all my time getting people riled up about how bad everything is.” Kasich, who struggled in the polls after he repeatedly attacked and lectured Donald Trump’s approach to...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich wants to be known in the GOP presidential race as the "prince of light and hope." Kasich is stressing his experience in Congress and painting himself as an optimistic alternative to those campaigning on the woes facing the country as he looks to shore up support in New Hampshire. "Look, we have a lot of candidates who like the prince of darkness. I consider myself the prince of light and hope," Kasich said during an interview Tuesday with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
