  • After Iowa, Trump Showing off Effort to Win in New Hampshire

    "It's really about asking them whether they're going to get out and vote on Tuesday and whether they support Mr. Trump," McGough said. He said he had made 1,150 calls for Trump on Wednesday alone. Kevin Bray, 51, another volunteer, said he had driven more than 20 hours in the rain from Nixa, Missouri, after seeing the results in Iowa. "Iowa happened and I woke up really irritated," he said. "I said, you know, I want to make a difference." He said he arrived on Wednesday morning and told Trump's team to put him to work. In a back room...
  • Christie Doubles Down on 'Boy in the Bubble' Comment, Hammers Rubio on Youth, Inexperience

    Townhall.com ^ | February 5, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien
    A few days ago in New Hampshire, Gov. Chris Christie called his presidential rival Marco Rubio the "boy in the bubble." He was referring to Rubio's supposed lack of facetime with voters, instead relying on manufactured town halls and scripted answers. Yet, pundits can't help thinking the New Jersey governor was also targeting Rubio's youth. Judge for yourself: "We know who the boy in the bubble is up here who never answers your questions, who's constantly scripted and controlled because he can't answer your questions," Christie said. "So when Senator Rubio gets here, when the boy in the bubble gets...

    Tattoo parlors in New England are inking Donald Trump and Bernard Sanders supporters for free if they're willing to brand their bodies with the names, faces or slogans of either presidential hopeful ahead of the upcoming New Hampshire primaries. After the owner of The Clay Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Seabrook, New Hampshire, announced last month that he was offering free tattoos of Mr. Trump for fans of the Republican Party front-runner, Aartistic Inc. in Winooski, Vermont, agreed to do the same with designs inspired by the Democratic hopeful.

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | 02/05/2016 | Nate Silver
    A candidate is moving up in the New Hampshire polls — but it’s the man who finished third in Iowa, Marco Rubio, and not the Iowa winner, Ted Cruz. Rubio has gained around 6 percentage points in the New Hampshire polls, while Donald Trump has lost 2 points (although Trump remains the favorite here). There’s still a tiny bit of pre-Iowa data in polling average, and the numbers will undoubtedly shift around a few points over the weekend. But if any candidate were emerging with massive momentum as a result of his Iowa performance, we probably would have seen it...

    I was listening to Mark Levin’s radio show last night during which he expressed his frustration with how the GOP has allowed itself to be mired in meaningless “scandals” at the expense of making a clear case for conservatism and addressing policy. I agree with him. It is absolutely unbelievable to me that despite having a very strong lineup of candidates, on tp of 8 years of disastrous progressive liberalism, we could be in danger of losing this nation to a SOCIALIST? While the media (even on our side) obsesses over tweets, there are critical issues we should be discussing....

    BOSTON (CBS) - It's been a crazy election so far, and the WBZ/UMass Amherst poll shows it could get crazier in these final days, with 28% of Democrats and a whopping 48% of Republicans saying they might still change their minds before next Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire. Let's start with the GOP, where businessman Donald Trump is holding onto a substantial lead with 33%, a 19-point margin over Sen. Marco Rubio at 14% and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with ten percent. Right on their heels: Sen. Ted Cruz with nine percent, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at six percent...

    The anti-Trump super-PAC that spent more than $2 million slamming the billionaire in Iowa is preparing to launch a new secret weapon in New Hampshire -- John McCain. "Probably the only significant strategy shift is we are going to remind voters in New Hampshire about the disgraceful things that he said about John McCain," said the leader of Our Principles PAC, Katie Packer, who was Mitt Romney's deputy campaign manager in 2012. Trump offended many Republicans when he mocked McCain's Vietnam War service last July, saying "he was a war hero because he was captured. ... I like people who...

    Since the Iowa caucuses ended Monday night, three Republican candidates have ended their presidential campaigns. The problem for establishment GOPers? None of that trio is named Jeb Bush, John Kasich or Chris Christie. The thinning of the Republican field has occurred entirely outside of the "establishment" lane -- with Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Rand Paul all calling it quits. That's a very bad thing for an establishment badly in need of finding a unity candidate soon if they want to have any hope of unseating the two favorites -- Donald Trump and Ted Cruz -- as the race moves...

    Republican operatives from inside and outside New Hampshire agree: Sen. Ted Cruz is all but doomed to finish below the top tier in the Granite State. 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...

    Donald Trump's days are numbered. Like so: -11, 4, 21, and 45,416. These four figures help explain why the favorite for the New Hampshire Republican primary hasn't been knocked from his perch just yet, despite the victory of Ted Cruz in the Iowa caucuses and the surge of Marco Rubio. An argument against Trump's frontrunner status is that Rubio has all the momentum from his strong Iowa finish, and that the real estate mogul no longer has the air of inevitability. ("He's not a machine! He's a man!") Both of those statements might be true. But so are these: Trump's...

    Bernie Sanders is 74. He grew up playing stickball in the streets of Brooklyn and watching a black-and-white television. Yet this child of the 1940s, who says Franklin D. Roosevelt is his favorite president, has inspired a potent political movement among young people today. Young voters' support for Mr. Sanders has created a quandary in Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, where millennial staff members have tried to persuade their peers to back the former first lady. The discomfort, and, in some cases hostility, toward Mrs. Clinton among young voters is striking. Some of them, feeling the pinch of economic...

The remark was made by the presidential candidate during his final pass-through Iowa before the all-important electoral event. Heidi Cruz is, of course, Ted Cruz's wife. And in case you thought first ladies were in charge of school lunches, Cruz's comment is clearly a dig at Michelle Obama, who is known for her interest in and efforts to address the problem of childhood obesity. The current first lady supports the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids...

    Donald Trump is poised to bounce back after his second-place finish in Iowa and win New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary next week. That's according to members of The POLITICO Caucus - a collection of strategists, activists and operatives in the four early nominating states: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. ... "Congrats to Rubio, but now everyone will [go] after him with withering attacks. The real race in New Hampshire is for second, for the opportunity to consolidate support to stop Trump or Cruz after New Hampshire."

    Fresh off a victory in the Iowa caucuses, a feisty Ted Cruz unloaded on his rival Donal Trump Wednesday afternoon, asking repeatedly who the New Hampshire frontrunner might call "stupid" next. "You know, he accused the people of Iowa of being stupid. In fact, he skipped the Iowa debate," Cruz said during a press availability in New Hampshire. "It makes you wonder if his next step is to accuse the people of New Hampshire of being stupid -- if he plans to skip the New Hampshire debate, and after that if he plans to accuse the people of South Carolina...

    NASHUA, N.H. - Still riding a wave of confidence after winning the Iowa Caucuses, Ted Cruz was in rare form Wednesday night as he mocked Donald Trump over everything from losing Iowa to a previous record of liberal policy positions. "Have you noticed Donald doesn't take losing well?" he said at a town hall here. "Donald told us every day for a year he was going to win Iowa, win it big, win it 'yuuuuuge,'" he said, poking at Trump's speaking style. "I don't think people are interested in temper tantrums, or you could call it a 'Trumpertantrum,'" he continued,...

    Many Republicans and supporters of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are getting nervous as the New Hampshire primary approaches on Feb. 9. It comes down to this, they say, he must do better than Sen. Marco Rubio, his former mentee and fellow Floridian, in the next major presidential contest, or just pack up and drop out of the race, according to The New York Times.

    Critics are calling former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin a "disappointing" sellout to presidential candidate Donald Trump and her Facebook post denouncing Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign's "lies" about opponent Ben Carson unfair. "Sarah you disappoint me you sold out to a liberal big Government windbag and are spreading lies about a true conservative," one apparently former fan of Palin writes in one of the top comments on her post. "Ted Cruz was just reporting what CNN reported."...

    Thank heavens Donald Trump opened so many eyes to the lies, corruption and total lack of accountability that come so naturally to the permanent political class. And Sen. Ted Cruz was spot on when he once noted that "millions of Americans are asking for accountability and truth." Which is why it's so curious - and saddens us - this lack of accountability with the lies of Cruz's own campaign. Cruz's campaign chairman, U.S. Representative Steve King, is lying, and good for Dr. Ben Carson for calling this out. King, who's previously asked for and received my endorsement, time and resources...

    Watch her crowing about how she won and how she plans to continue onto New Hampshire standing on her record. In horse racing, the Stewards would have posted the photo sign for two horses that reached the wire together. They would not have tossed a coin. Thoroughbred racing is serious business. Money is on the line. Politics is different, especially the way Democrats play the game. Only our lives are on the line and only Hillary must win. Cheating in racing can get you suspended. Cheating in Democrat Politics can get you elected. So when six counties in Iowa finished...

    I want to start with a few key facts, because they'll be important in a moment: 1. Among left-leaning female voters under the age of 45, Bernie Sanders holds a significant lead in the polls. 2. He's received far more donations from females than Hillary Clinton. 3. The results in Iowa showed that he won handily in the under-45 category, regardless of whether the voter was male or female. As it happens, there is absolutely a gap in support when it comes to Sanders and Clinton. But it's not a gender gap-it's an age gap. ....It's simple: Older people vote...

    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz said he will not discipline staffers who spread a rumor that Ben Carson was going to drop out of the race in an attempt to get Carson supporters to caucus for Cruz in Iowa. Cruz appeared on the Mike Gallager Show on Wednesday and talked about staffers who pushed a report that Carson wasn't going on to campaign in New Hampshire or South Carolina.

    -- Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucuses because evangelicals turned out in record numbers and broke his way in the final days. For the Texas senator to win in South Carolina, he’ll need that to happen again. But the Cruz campaign, full of bare-knuckled operatives who pride themselves on their take-no-prisoners approach to politics, might have poisoned the well.
