  • GOP Turnout, Already Strong, Is Getting Stronger

    wsj.com ^ | Aaron Zitner
    Republican turnout this primary season is up 64% over 2012 levels, new data show, with participation accelerating in recent months as voters in big states got a rare shot to play a meaningful role. The rise in GOP turnout had been calculated at about 57% in the aggregate for states that voted through early April. The subsequent boost in what was already high GOP turnout comes as voters in New York, Pennsylvania and several other populous states had the rare opportunity this year in helping to choose the party’s nominee. Rarely has the contest lasted long enough for the outcome...

    Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich said Friday evening that some of his fellow party members are alienating Hispanic voters with scare tactics that could hurt the GOP in November's general election. "Do the Republicans actually think that they can win an election by scaring every Hispanic in this country to death?" Kasich told reporters at the California GOP convention in San Francisco, being held ahead of the state's June 7 primary. "Scaring them to the point that they are afraid that their families are going to be torn apart and disrupted? Do you have any idea what those folks are...

    Donald Trump supporters are a generally happy bunch... The Cruz campaign in Indiana is in a state of collapse and freefall. By the end of the weekend you can expect the narrative to shift, and the campaign will be pointing fingers toward California (June 7th) because their impending defeat is looming ever more dangerous. Before getting to a recent poll, lets take a look at the current landscape. Senator Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina spoke at a campaign rally in South Bend Indiana. In a venue capable of holding more than 2,000 only a few hundred showed up... That’s the...

    Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction. Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clinton’s optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

And I think the country is really depending on Indiana to choose the direction of this race."

He told WIBC in Indianapolis that he "particularly" wanted "to commend Donald Trump, who I think has given voice to the frustration of millions of working Americans." Pence also voiced his pleasure with Trump's focus on Carrier, which has announced controversial plans to move many jobs in its Indiana plant to Mexico. The Indiana governor then announced his endorsement of Cruz.

    From the outset, and particularly since the ridiculous “Never Trump” campaign began, we have outlined the most damaging aspect to Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential bid is his continued visibility. The reasoning is simple: the more people see and hear Cruz, the more the average electorate are turned off by Cruz. He’s just not a likeable man. A CNN article today points out the internal polling within Indiana is following this consistent pattern: Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his...

    Cruz also told reporters gathered in Fort Wayne, Indiana that he’d only met Boehner “two or three times.” Which, in terms of actual numbers, may or may not be true, but the depth of these meetings was far greater than Cruz’s statements suggested. That’s because he worked as Boehner’s attorney during the Ohio representative’s federal lawsuit against Washington representative Jim McDermott in 1998.

    In both his March New York Times interview and his more recent foreign policy speech at the Mayflower Hotel, presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has created tremors within America’s stodgy, utterly complacent foreign policy elite. He has alarmed those self-anointed Mandarins regarding several issues, including his comments that under certain circumstances he would not object to Japan and South Korea acquiring independent nuclear deterrents. But his comments about NATO have probably caused the most consternation. Trump’s own preference appears to be for greater burden-sharing within the alliance—a unicorn that American politicians, policymakers, and pundits have been chasing for more than...

    Donald Trump would be “a danger to the United States and to the world” if elected president, according to Indiana’s largest newspaper, The Indianapolis Star. In an editorial published on Thursday, the newspaper widely condemned the Republican front-runner’s “simplistic proposals,” arguing he is unfit to occupy the Oval Office. “Trump has demonstrated repeatedly during the months-long campaign that he is wholly unsuited to serve as president,” the editorial states. “He’s offered simplistic proposals on national security, job creation, immigration, international trade and foreign affairs. He has sounded off with appalling comments about women and others. He’s appealed to voters’ worst...

He said he would vote for Cruz, but everyone should study and make up their own minds. If the word 'endorse' was ever used, it went by quickly and wasn't front and center. In fact, the discussion quickly went back to Pence's decision to support any nominee that is decided upon by the Republican Convention. It was a marginal show of support for Cruz. Appreciation for Trump actually was the beginning of Pence's...

    For the last month or so, Donald Trump’s path to 1,237 delegates has been clear: Win Indiana and California. But after his strong showings in the Northeast, Indiana no longer seems to be a must-win state to capture the Republican nomination. Sure, winning the state would be very helpful toward gaining a majority of delegates. Without Indiana, he would struggle to get the 1,237 bound delegates needed to wrap up the nomination heading into the convention. But there’s now a credible path to winning on the first ballot without it. The main reason is Mr. Trump’s success on Tuesday among...

Today I write about the PEC delegate snapshot. It is based on data posted here. All polls are current, including Trump +6% in Indiana (n=3 polls). Based on Tuesday’s voting, in which Cruz underperformed polls by a median of 4 percentage points, I will no longer assign a Cruz bonus. Note that Trump overperformed...

    Cruz and allies have five days to stop Trump When Ted Cruz unveiled Carly Fiorina as his running mate on Wednesday, and when he struck that alliance/truce with John Kasich on Sunday night, they were from a position of weakness – not strength. The reason: If Cruz and the “Stop Trump” movement don’t win in Indiana on May 3, they’re done. It’s that simple. After Trump ran the table in Tuesday’s primaries, including getting at least 35 of the 54 Pennsylvania unbound delegates (and that number could go above 40), a win in Indiana – even by a single point...

    According to numerous national media reports, Senator Ted Cruz is moments away from announcing Carly Fiorina as his running mate.The transparency of intent is brutally obvious. Cruz is desperate; all current indications coming out of Indiana do not look well for his ongoing ‘hail-Mary’ chances. The Kasich/Cruz deal to split up states in a futile effort to block Donald Trump is backfiring. Ted Cruz “authenticity” and “likability” continue to plummet. The more Ted talks, the less people like him. He needs a reset, fast. Enter Carly Fiorina, the consummate DC cocktail class republican. A failed corporate CEO who was jettisoned...

    Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson appeared on America’s Newsroom on Wednesday to speak to host Martha MacCallum about what would happen if — as even House Speaker Paul Ryan is refusing to rule out — the Republican Party does not accept Donald Trump as its nominee this summer in Cleveland. Carlson singled out RedState for attacking Trump’s voters as “diseased” and “probably on Oxycontin” or “secretly liberal,” but insisted that such talk is inherently counterproductive. “He is on track to receive more votes than any Republican nominee ever,” Carlson began. “He’s already surpassed Mitt Romney’s number in 2012.” He was...

    Columbus, Indiana -- Outside an Indiana ice cream shop today, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stepped off his campaign bus and was almost immediately confronted by an angry Donald Trump supporter. Kathy Hiel questioned Cruz about the delegate process, accusing him of rigging the system. The contentious exchange ended with Hiel saying Cruz isn't a natural-born citizen and Cruz saying that if Trump had been confronted by a voter challenging him, the Trump campaign would have threatened the voter with violence.

    Despite landslide victories on Tuesday, Donald Trump still needs to win Indiana — and he’s starting to act like it. The frugal Manhattan mogul has begun opening his wallet for the air war, spending more than $900,000 on TV and radio ads. He’s working the inside game, wooing Gov. Mike Pence one-on-one in what multiple Indiana insiders said appears to have been a successful effort to keep the governor on the endorsement sidelines. And Trump’s new campaign strategist Paul Manafort has been telling Republican officials, multiple people told POLITICO, that Trump is in the midst of doubling the ground team...
