    The GOP presidential race is moving to South Carolina, which hosts its primary on Saturday, February 20. A lot can and will change before then, but one thing is clear when looking at polls in the Palmetto State: Donald Trump entered Tuesday as the frontrunner in South Carolina, and he’ll remain the frontrunner after his dominant performance in New Hampshire.

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said on the day of the New Hampshire primary that he was open to serving as vice president under another candidate, specifically saying that he would be willing to sit down and discuss it with Donald Trump. "Would you be ever open to a VP spot?" asked Fox Business host Neil Cavuto. "I would have to have major philosophical alignment with whoever it was," Carson responded. "I would have to have guarantees that I could do some substantial things." Cavuto asked whether that applied to Donald Trump as well. "I certainly would sit down and...

    Considering how little the Supreme Court has been mentioned in election debates, a space alien might conclude that it’s the “least dangerous” branch of government. A Gallup poll released on October 2, 2015 indicates that 50 percent of Americans “disapprove of the way the Supreme Court is handling its job,” a drop of 12 points since 2001. A CBS News/New York Times Poll conducted from June 10-14, 2015 asked 1,007 adults nationwide: “In general, do you think the current Supreme Court justices decide their cases based on legal analysis without regard to their own personal or political views, or...

    The 100 biggest donors of 2016 cycle have spent $195 million trying to influence the presidential election more than the $155 million spent by the 2 million smallest donors combined, according to a POLITICO analysis of campaign finance data. The analysis found that the leading beneficiaries of checks from the top 100 donors were Jeb Bushs floundering campaign for the GOP nomination (a supportive super PAC received $49 million from donors on the list), Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton (super PACs dedicated to her raised $38 million from top 100 donors) and Ted Cruzs insurgent GOP campaign ($37 million).

Trump nabs 31 percent support in the survey released Monday evening, down 2 points from the same poll conducted last week but inside its margin of error. Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) takes 17 percent in the survey, which was conducted Thursday through Monday and included the Republican debate over the weekend. Rubio, who emerged as an establishment favorite from last week's Iowa caucus, struggled in the face of a barrage of attacks from...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — At least two separate GOP presidential campaigns’ internal polling data shows a demonstrable and significant slide for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) after his widely panned debate performance—where New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie targeted him—Breitbart News has learned. A pro-Ohio Gov. John Kasich Super PAC published, via Politico, internal polling numbers showing a drop off for Rubio after Christie exposed him during the debate. In that poll, Rubio fell down to 10 percent and into fourth place. “Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place,” Politico’s Alex Isenstadt...

Clinton leads Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent among Democratic voters, according to the poll of 512 Americans, conducted Feb. 2-5 following the Iowa caucus. The poll has a credibility interval of 5 percentage points. Democrats had been supporting Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin at the beginning of the year. Sanders has narrowed that lead considerably over the past several weeks. Clinton...

    The most interesting question this year for political junkies is who - if anyone - can rebuild Ronald Reagan's electoral coalition. Plenty of candidates would like to do it, and plenty of them want to convince America right now that they're already doing it. But the key group of voters who could make that happen are up for grabs - and they're skeptical. The big cultural story of the year, it's now clear, is how elites and intellectuals now abruptly admit that downwardly mobile middle-class whites, especially men, have become an important constituency and a political problem.

The Republican establishment's fondest hope before Saturday night's debate was that Marco Rubio would deliver yet another solid (if unmemorable) debate performance, and that Donald Trump would fall on his face - compounding the damage he suffered in Iowa, and surrendering more, if not all, of his lead in New Hampshire over to Rubio, who's in second place and climbing. Instead, the establishment got almost exactly the opposite. The single biggest spoiler wasn't Trump, or even Ted Cruz, but New Jersey Governor...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - A malfunctioning Marco Rubio crashed as he was overloaded by attacks last night from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who tried to portray the Florida U.S. senator as a Washington robot pre-programmed by political consultants during a high-stakes Republican debate.

    As the New Hampshire primary fast approaches, I wish to remind voters that our next commander-in-chief must be of the highest character, cut from the rare cloth of our founders. Sometimes God gives us great gifts in ugly packages. Recent attacks on Ted Cruz from both the Trump and Dr. Carson campaigns gifted Cruz an opportunity to show his character and presidential instincts.

    What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, but made himself look like a royal, braying jerk in the process. Normally in these posts, I have three winners and three losers, but I don't think there even were three winners - but there were a whole bunch of losers....

  • Ted Cruz Shuts Down Martha Raddatz’s Cheap Gotcha on North Korea

    During Saturday night's ABC News debate, co-moderator Martha Raddatz, a personal friend of Barack Obama's, asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) an incredibly dumb gotcha question premised on the idea that Cruz is some kind of war-monger, but only when he wants to be. Cruz was first about the news that, in violation of treaty, North Korea launched fired a long-range rocket Saturday. Cruz gave an impressive and detailed answer about North Korean threat that included legitimate criticism of President Clinton's mishandling of his failed nuclear deal. Raddatz then attacked: ...

    How anyone in the debate audience could boo Marco Rubio for saying the Obama knows exactly what he is doing and is not incompetent is incomprehensible to me. Obama is intentionally destroying the US and anyone who would boo someone for saying that is an idiot.

    The audience loudly booed Trump, driving the back-and-forth off the rails. Trump said audience members were all members of the Republican establishment. “That’s all of his donors and special interests out there,” Trump said of the people booing him. “That’s what it is. And by the way, let me just tell you: We needed tickets. You can’t get them. You know who has the tickets? … Donors, special interests, the people that are putting up the money. That’s who it is.” The booing continued. Trump said he was self-funding his campaign, so Republican donors weren’t a fan of his candidacy....

    Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich on Saturday joked that he may have more appeal to voters outside of his party, according to CBS News. While campaigning in New Hampshire, he ran into a Democratic voter who said the Ohio governor is the only Republican he'd consider voting for. "I ought to be running in a Democrat primary. I got more Democrats for me - you have any Republican friends?" he quipped. Kasich is considered one of the more moderate GOP candidates and has been attacked by the right for using the Affordable Care Act to expand Medicaid in Ohio. He...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...
