  • Trump's Crowds: Does Size Matter?

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: You know the stories about the size of the crowds that go to Trump rallies versus the practically invisible crowds that visit Hillary rallies. I'm guilty of this, too. The rule of thumb in discussing that is to say, "Don't attach too much to it." A lot of candidates who lost in landslides drew huge crowds, the story goes. That is not data. Massive crowds showing up at a campaign rally is not an indication of how they're gonna vote at all. It's not even an indication if they're gonna vote. It's nothing more than anecdotal. By...

America has never seen a presidential candidate like this before. Detractors point to his lack of political experience, his poor grasp of policy, his alleged autocratic leanings and his shady past. They believe this man without much of a political platform (but with interesting hair) has neither the qualifications nor the temperament to be president. Yet in defiance of conventional wisdom, he is leading his three main rivals in the race for the...

    THE spectacle of the Republican Party's Trumpian meltdown has inspired a mix of glee and fear among liberals -- glee over their rivals' self-immolation, and fear that what arises from the destruction will be worse. What it hasn't inspired is much in the way of self-examination, or a recognition of the way that Obama-era trends in liberal politics have helped feed the Trump phenomenon. Such a recognition wouldn't require letting the Republican Party off the hook. The Trump uprising is first and foremost a Republican and conservative problem: There would be no Trumpism if George W. Bush's presidency hadn't cratered,...

This is up vs. the 7.4 overnight rating for the most recent GOP debate, on Fox Business Network earlier this month, but it stands as the second lowest-rated of the six Republican gatherings...

This announcement of polling data destroys the arguments made by the political establishment that Trump isn't electable in a general election. There is no candidate in either party that has this sort of massive appeal among likely voters: National polling doesn't...
  • CR Editors: Trump’s Questionable Political History

    It is hard not to feel protective over Donald Trump while the political classes are seething and scornful. They are unacquainted with such powerlessness. Control was never supposed to stray this far from their grasp. And their rage, manifested in every hapless attack on Trump and his supporters, actually seems to be improving the likelihood of that outcome they fear most of all. How tempting, under these circumstances, to rush to his defense, as so many in the conservative movement have already done. The Donald has boldly made himself a standard bearer of unpopular (…within the political bubble), yet critical...

    Obama said this...I will tell you as president, if you are interested just because you like the title or you like the trappings or you like the power or the fame or the celebrity, that side of it wears off pretty quick. At least it has for me. Uhhhhh huh... Maybe the liberal interviewing Obama (it sounds like I'm taking that for granted, the quote originated from an NPR interview, so...) had the his critical thinking switch slide off because it was located on the smooth part of his brain known as his brain, but any half-brained dim wit couldn't...

    Tina Fey is sick of apologizing, and she's also tired of the Internet. "Steer clear of the Internet and you'll live forever," Fey told Net-a-Porter magazine in a wide ranging interview. "We did an 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' episode and the Internet was in a whirlwind, calling it 'racist,' but my new goal is not to explain jokes."

    Donald Trump was ridiculed as a 'knucklehead with a big, fat orange Oompa Loompa face' last night on SNL as Will Ferrell reprised his President George W. Bush role for the show's cold opening. Dismissing the billionaire tycoon's policy to ban Muslims entering America, Ferrell turned deadly serious for a second to say the idea was 'impossible to implement and not what this country is all about.' And as he mocked the outspoken businessman it was difficult to tell if Ferrell broke character when he began laughing at the very thought of Trump and 'his hair, and the 100 foot...

    Like a star football player holding out before training camp, Donald Trump said he may demand CNN pay him to be in next presidential debate. At a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia, Mr. Trump said he pulls in such big ratings that he deserves $5 million from CNN. "I won't do the debate unless they pay me 5 million dollars," said the real-estate tycoon worth billions. Mr. Trump told his audience at the rally, according to CBS News, that the network was treating him unfairly, over its coverage of his meeting with black pastors earlier in the day. He then...
