    ...How ironic it would be to see the Republicans united at their convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in July; followed by the Democrats a week later in Philadelphia, still fighting over who should be their nominee... While many will tout the most recent poll, (CNN/ORC poll conducted April 28-May 1) that has Clinton leading Trump by 54 percent to 41 percent, as a portending his sure defeat in the fall, they are wrong. Clinton is very beatable, especially by Trump...

    Bill Clinton’s battle with a tragic brain disease is sparking fears he won’t live to see the November elections! “Bill is clearly not the same person he was a year ago, or even six months ago,” a political spy told The National ENQUIRER. "He is much slower physically, and he suffers periodic mental lapses.”

    Pundits and prognosticators are in a rare mea culpa moment, acknowledging how badly they misjudged Donald Trump as a presidential candidate and apologizing for being so narrow-minded. But they didn’t need to travel to dozens of campaign events or poll hundreds of Iowans to understand Trump’s appeal. All they had to do was understand one single number: $55,191. That was median household income, adjusted for inflation, in June 2015, the month Trump declared he was running for the Republican presidential nomination. That number is neither good nor bad on its own, but when you compare it with a second number,...

    The young cybersleuth says he exposed security lapses on Florida elections websites, but the state says he committed a crime. David Levin, 31, of Estero, a political consultant and owner of a computer security firm, was booked Wednesday on three felony charges of unauthorized access to computer systems. Each count carries a maximum five-year prison sentence. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Levin illegally gained internal access to websites of the state Division of Elections and the Lee County elections office, which together hold data on more than 12 million Florida voters. FDLE said that after Levin gained access...

    The elites’ refusal to grapple with the reality before their eyes continued long after it was obvious Trump was no passing phenomenon. They resorted to increasingly implausible rationalizations to explain his success. “In nearly every election cycle, there are candidates who lead national polls and sometimes even win states, but don’t come close to winning the nomination,” explained Nate Cohen of the New York Times in December. “It would be tough for Mr. Trump to prevail in a one-on-one contest against a typical mainstream Republican, much in the same way that Mr. Buchanan quickly faltered against Mr. Dole.” Why, since...

On an emotional level, I experienced a wave of pity for Clinton while watching the ad. I mean that literally. Her advisers seem blind to the tools of persuasion. Other people who were blind to Trump’s powers of persuasion include Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Carly Fiorina. None of them will be your next president.

    This sudden and orchestrated list of events -- Cruz drops out, Kasich drops out, Romney not to attend GOP Convention, Bush family not to attend -- and others beyond -- suggests to this observer that the other shoe is about to drop. We must be careful at Free Republic to realize that a prevailing mood here is not necessarily an indication of a strong prevailing mood elsewhere in American political culture. It might be at best what one third of one half are thinking, in other words, what one-sixth of the voters accept to be orthodox self-evident truth. The fact...

    In September 2015, writer and statistician Nate Silver urged people to "calm down" about the possibility of Donald Trump winning the Republican presidential nomination. Two months later, he wrote that the media should "stop freaking out about Donald Trump's polls" and that Trump's odds were "higher than 0 but (considerably) less than 20 percent." Six months after that, after Ted Cruz had dropped out of the race but before John Kasich had done so, Silver wrote: "Donald Trump is going to win the Republican nomination."

Putting the retired neurosurgeon on the veep search committee, however, could generate some buzz among Trump supporters: a recent public-opinion survey found that voters want Trump to pick Carson as his running mate.

    Indictment. That is the term heard increasingly from sources adjacent to the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal that apparently now places her at considerable risk of facing a very serious federal espionage charge. The risk was great enough to require President Obama to come out publicly to warn off the investigation when during an interview he attempted downplay Mrs. Clinton’s “confusion” over federal classified information laws. It was the very same tactic the president used to diminish the earlier IRS scandal and he now appears hopeful he can be just as successful in minimizing the damage to Hillary...

    With the news that Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) will suspend his fruitless campaign for president Wednesday at 5PM it’s worth asking the obvious question: Why now? Kasich lost every single caucus and primary over the past several months except for his home state of Ohio. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has more delegates for the nomination than Kasich and he’s been out of the race for weeks. So why stay in as long as he did just to drop out when the race finally comes down to just two candidates? Let’s focus on a few key moments of the past several...

As Trump said last night, Cruz is tough and smart. But he made big mistakes as a presidential candidate.

    Donald Trump reached a new high among Republicans in a national NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday. The real estate mogul has 56 percent support, more than doubling his advantage over Ted Cruz, who sits at 22 percent. John Kasich rounds out the survey with 14 percent support. An additional 7 percent remain undecided. Trump is the only Republican candidate with any mathematical path to securing the GOP nomination outright, though Cruz and Kasich are hoping to emerge as the nominee at a contested convention in July should Trump fall short of the requisite 1,237 delegates.

Yes, that’s a narrow path, but given Mr. Trump’s potential appeal to new and...

    It has been over one month since advocates for the families of victims killed by illegal immigrants issued an open letter to the Republican presidential candidates. The letter seeks their support for a new program which would provide aid to the families suffering from the loss of their loved ones. So far, only one candidate has responded. Maria Espinoza, co-founder and director of the advocacy group, The Remembrance Project, tells Hannity.com that Donald Trump is the only candidate whose office has responded to their open letter and that the candidate will support a national program to assist families of victims...

    The Hill ^ | 4/30/16 | Christina Marcos
    Female Republican lawmakers are making the case for Donald Trump to choose a woman as his running mate. Picking a female vice presidential candidate could help mitigate the damage Trump caused with women voters in the primary, they say, as well as counter Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee. Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) offered the idea, somewhat unprompted, at a Capitol Hill event hosted by the Heritage Foundation this week. When a reporter asked a panel of conservative House Republicans who Trump should choose as his running mate, most lawmakers demurred. But Lummis, the only woman on the...

    NEW YORK – After negative reporting of his religious views, the Christian evangelist father of Ted Cruz has returned to the campaign trail in an effort to win evangelical voters in Indiana, whose primary Tuesday is regarded by many as the Texas senator’s last hope to keep his bid for the Republican presidential nomination alive. While the national media largely has been silent about Rafael Cruz’s re-emergence, local reporters in Indiana have covered his various appearances. WSBT-TV in Mishawaka, Indiana, reported Rafael Cruz created “a lot of excitement” by showing up as a guest of Indiana Republican Gov. Mike Pence...

    In most of the primary and caucus results over the past several months, the votes reflected these poll results. Even when Trump did very well with Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers, he’s usually tanked with Millennials. Game, set and match, right? Turn out the lights. Trump is doomed. Get ready for four years of this. Maybe. Or, maybe, just maybe, we shouldn’t do what every political pundit and “expert” has done since they wrote-off his candidacy the day Trump announced. Something happened in Maryland and Pennsylvania. let’s just focus on Pennsylvania because the Keystone State could actually be a decisive...

  • Long before John Boehner called Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh,’ he called him his lawyer

    We are re-upping this post from early 2014 in light of Boehner labeling Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh" and saying, "I've never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life." Here's where their work together began, two decades ago. For what it's worth, Cruz downplayed their relationship Thursday in his comments responding to Boehner. "I've met John Boehner two or three times in my life," he assured. As we show below, that's not entirely accurate.
