  • How Donald Trump broke all the rules — and won anyway

    The Week ^ | February 11 ,2016 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    the losers now? Trump crushed the rest of the Republican field in New Hampshire. He received more than double the support of the second-place finisher, John Kasich. Exit polling showed that in fact there are multiple "lanes" in the Republican nominating contest. Moderates preferred Kasich to Ted Cruz. And very conservative voters preferred Cruz to Kasich. But both sets of voters preferred Trump to either of those men, and by significant margins. In other words, Donald Trump was ahead in every lane. There was no room left on the highway in New Hampshire. Perhaps the most telling piece of journalism...

    A Jeb Bush campaign speech breached a new dimension of awkwardness this week. The former Florida governor was speaking at a Rotary Club in New Hampshire Monday when a Rotary official interrupted the presidential candidate and sent him back to his seat. A C-SPAN video of the speech shows the man interrupting Bush's speech and ushering him off the stage. "They're kicking me off the stage!" Bush says, waving his arms, apparently flabbergasted by what is happening.

    If the Department of Labor continues to make it difficult for companies to hire American workers, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned, robots would take over key jobs in the economy. During a town hall in Okatie, S.C., Rubio warned that the Department of Labor was too big, too powerful, and turned into “anti-business agency” that hurt the private sector.

    Given continued coverage of Marco Rubio's claim that his poor performance in Saturday's debate caused his fifth-place finish in the New Hampshire Republican primary, we wanted to put some data behind the point --- that the exit poll just doesn't back him up. We've got two ways to look at it, one direct, the other indirect, and neither shows any evidence that the debate harmed Rubio in terms of vote choices. Indirectly: 47 percent of New Hampshire GOP voters said they finally decided on their candidate either on Election Day itself, or in the previous few days. Twelve percent of...

    As you may recall, the Iowa Democrat caucus ended with Hillary Clinton allegedly holding a lead of roughly one quarter of one percent of the total number of micro-delegates or bitcoins or quarks or whatever it is they measure them in. (Not that it matters, since they won’t tell you how many people voted anyway.) In any event, Clinton and Sanders were essentially tied. Then we headed over to New Hampshire with its 24 pledged Democrat delegates. Sanders blew Clinton’s doors off there, taking roughly 60% of the votes. So at this point the delegate race should be pretty...

    Washington Post ^ | February 10, 2016
    THE STUNNINGLY handy wins by two anti-establishment candidates in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday are prompting conversation about similarities between New York businessman Donald Trump, the Republican victor, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the socialist victor on the Democratic side. The similarities are important - but the differences are more so. Both have positioned themselves as outsiders appealing to voters who believe the system, and the leaders of the two major parties, have failed them. The grievances they speak to are real: a sense that the economy has left too many people behind, that globalization and technological change are helping...

    Everything wrong with Jeb Bush can be summed up in his approach to border security and American sovereignty. As we all now know, the former Florida governor considers illegal immigration an "act of love" on the part of the illegal immigrant sneaking into America illegally. Wednesday morning on "Morning Joe," after barely getting out of New Hampshire alive, Bush repeatedly described frontrunner Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on foreign Muslims as "horrific." You don't have to agree with the idea of Trump's temporary ban to see the benefits of such a thing, or why two-thirds of Republican voters in a...

In this new video, multiple election officials and Bernie Sanders presidential campaign staffers offered advice to journalists using hidden cameras about how to circumvent the...

    Vermin Supreme, a boot-wearing, pony-loving political satirist who runs for president every four years, placed fourth in New Hampshire's Democratic primary election and ultimately received more votes than Republican candidate Jim Gilmore. Supreme got 256 votes Tuesday evening, finishing just behind former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who attracted 619 votes despite dropping out of the race after the Iowa caucuses. Gilmore, the former Virginia governor and last-place finisher on the Republican side, received just 131 votes. Sporting a boot on his head, Supreme is a fixture in New Hampshire politics, where he has run for president seven times. In a...

    Can you believe this? One longtime Rubio supporter who backs Bush faulted Rubio’s campaign for the slip-up. He said they drove Rubio too hard and too long and he didn’t have enough sleep. In the days before New Hampshire primary, Rubio struggled to find his footing coming off as subdued and tired during some of his final campaign stops. Rubio also repeated himself, again, this time about family values in his last campaign rally in Nashua, N.H., before the primary. “It was the pace. He couldn’t keep up,” the source said. “And then they doubled-down on it – tripled and...

    -snip- Bush is a massive threat to Rubio now. Don't get me wrong - Jeb did not do particularly well in New Hampshire either. Fourth place is no great achievement, especially when you consider how much money Bush spent in order to turn in that mediocre finish. In the context of this bizarre race, however, Jeb did himself a lot of favors by finishing 0.5 percent ahead of Rubio. His campaign has been an expensive disappointment up to this point, but now he can make the pitch to wary donors and Republican establishment types that he stuck with it, fought...

    Since the modern primary system kicked in back in 76, no Republican has won without taking Iowa or New Hampshire. Since Cruz took Iowa and Trump was expected to take New Hampshire, that put Rubio in a difficult position.However, Rubio’s team had an answer for that: 3rd in IA, 2nd in NH and 1st in SC. It hadn’t been done that way on the Republican side, but that did seem like a plausible path to the nomination.Unfortunately, Rubio’s 5th place finish in NH means both Jeb and Kasich will stay in and split the establishment vote. It also means Rubio...

Mr. Bush accused the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star of being a divisive figure just like President Obama and slammed him for declaring bankruptcy four times for his business ventures. "I'm giving you a reality-based answer not a realty-TV answer," Mr. Bush told the crowd at a town hall in Bluffton, South Carolina, as he touted his record of cutting taxes, reining in spending...

    Though Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide over Hillary Clinton, he will likely receive fewer delegates than she will. Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic Party’s nominating system, he leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while she leaves with at least 15 delegates. New Hampshire has 24 “pledged” delegates, which are allotted based on the popular vote. Sanders has 13, and Clinton has 9, with 2 currently allotted to neither.

    There's a reason Ted Cruz didn't spend a lot of money in New Hampshire. It wasn't because he had given up on him having an impact there even though most in the media had. It wasn't because he didn’t think that the vote was an important one. It was because he's smart enough to hold back when others are going all in. In essence, Ted Cruz let them burn through their cash while he looked at the long game. To place an unexpected third in New Hampshire, Ted Cruz and his super PACs combined to spend $580,000.

    According to the New Hampshire exit polls, a full 66% of Republican voters back a “ban on Muslims from entering the U.S.” This obviously is good news for Donald Trump, who proposed a temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the country until our government is in a better position to avoid another Sacramento terror attack. The female jihadist who committed that terror attack was here on a fiancée visa. By all accounts, Trump made this proposal based only on his instincts, not any kind of focus group polling. Every other candidate in the Republican primary disagreed with the proposal, many...

Though Trump's victory in New Hampshire was no doubt impressive, the electorate of independent voters and super high turnout was tailor-made for him, whereas Cruz didn't put substantial effort into winning the state - where very conservative candidates don't typically do as well. He is currently in position to win third here, with votes still outstanding. As the race moves to South Carolina, however, Cruz has a ground game in place and the electorate is...

    MANCHESTER, N.H -- If Marco Rubio won the Iowa caucus by finishing third last week, Ted Cruz just won New Hampshire. Cruz (R-Texas), the actual winner of the Iowa Republican caucus, finished third in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night, behind life-sized Chucky impersonator Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. In other words, he lost. But don't count Cruz out quite yet. Just two of the 48 states have voted, and Cruz has the money -- and the polling numbers -- to stay in the GOP race and, potentially, win it. Cruz, a methodical politician, plotted a course to...

    Despite Donald Trump's victory in New Hampshire, what is the chance that Republicans will nominate Ted Cruz and that he will go on to win the presidency? The website ElectionBettingOdds gives Cruz a 14.5 percent chance of winning the nomination -- his victory in the Iowa caucuses and what looks like a third place showing in New Hampshire notwithstanding. It puts his chances of actually winning the presidency at 4.3 percent. But let's say Cruz beats the odds and wins the nomination. One of the most conservative members of the Senate, Cruz would test the argument made by leaders of...

    Well, about 80% of the votes have been tallied and thankfully, no weighted coin tosses have taken place, to Hillary’s chagrin. First, the winners… Trump – Trump seems to have struck a chord in the Live Free or Die state. He has thoroughly crushed the opposition, drowning the rest of the GOP clowns in a wake of destruction on Lake Winnipesaukee. This time Dana Bash’s big mouth on CNN was silenced and therefore, Ted Cruz had to fight this battle with Ben Carson in the race. But, it didn’t matter. Nothing mattered except Trump’s 19 percent winning margin. The liberal,...

    The New York Daily News is not amused with the people of New Hampshire. Following business mogul Donald Trump's double-digit win in the state's primary, the brash media outlet announced that its cover on Wednesday would depict a clown-faced image of the GOP front-runner alongside a sharp jab at the voters who've gotten him this far. "Clown comes back to life with N.H. win as mindless zombies turn out in droves," the cover reads, underneath the headline "Dawn of the brain dead." The Daily News has called Trump a clown -- among other things -- on its cover several times....

    The results in New Hampshire show a Democratic Party in the state that is deeply ruptured demographically and ideologically -- in a way that happened to very much favor Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night. [Snip] Sanders won two out of every three men, and notably slightly more women than Clinton, according to the most recent exit polls. Sanders won young voters -- those under 30 -- by about 70 percentage points. He won those aged 45 to 64 with a slight majority. He won two-thirds of non-college graduates and a little over half of those with degrees. Sanders won six...
