    A fine new report from the Public Policy Institute of California updates what we know about the state's political geography. For decades, the political divide in California was between the Democratic north and the Republican south. But in recent times, analysts have talked about a blue Democratic coast vs. the red Republican inland. PPIC's new report concludes that the coast vs. inland explanation isn't exactly right. When you dig deeply into the numbers, the state's real political divide puts the two former rivals -- Los Angeles County and the Bay Area -- on one side of the partisan divide, and...

    Rick Santorum won the North Dakota caucuses on Super Tuesday. CNN projected Santorum as the winner shortly after 10 p.m. ET, an hour after the caucuses ended. North Dakota didn't receive as much attention as other nine Super Tuesday states. Mitt Romney and Santorum visited the state once, according to the Associated Press. Ron Paul, on the other hand, visited multiple time and seemed like a good fit for the libertarian Republican: the state leans heavily toward independents. Paul, who drew large crowds of Tea Partiers there, decided to spend the evening of Super Tuesday in North Dakota. The state...

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- Newt Gingrich will become the third Republican presidential candidate to receive Secret Service protection. Service protection begins as early as Wednesday, according to a source from the Gingrich campaign. A spokesperson with the U.S. Secret Service would not confirm or comment on any details, deliberations or assessments related to providing service protection for Gingrich or any presidential candidate. The Gingrich campaign submitted paperwork requesting Secret Service protection in late February. Until now the former House speaker was paying a private security firm to protect Gingrich and his wife at public events....

    One of the many problems with ObamaCare is discovering that a self-bought policy is government run. What is the problem with a government policy?'s government run. They get you coming and going. There's a pretend choice that is no choice, and even that non-choice is eventually forced out of business so that all is subsumed under the reality of a bureaucrat deciding if you get a heart bypass or a quick sendoff to the great beyond. Fake choices abound when dealing with politicians. That's why one simply must wonder about the Gingrich/Santorum splitting of the conservative vote. Who benefits?...

    March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts. Polls open just like regular voting times, 6am to 7pm. You have 4 choices: Vote for Romney, vote for Paul, stay home/don’t vote or show up and do an “undervote”. Please do go to the polls and vote, if possible. More votes at the poll show more Republican strength. An undervote allows you to vote (in person or absentee) by showing up, pressing the VOTE button without choosing either candidate. Some...

Mitt may do better in South than expected. Santorum definitely the loser in tonight's 3 polls. Good news for both Romney (in OH and TN) and Gingrich (in TN and GA)

    We will begin our fact finding mission way back in 1994 with this gem: Campaigning for the Senate in 1994, Romney said he favored strong gun laws and did not “line up with the NRA.” Romney backed the Brady Bill which among other items attaches a five day waiting period to purchase a gun. The candidate reiterated his support for an assault weapons ban contained in Congress’ crime bill, and the Brady law which imposes a five-day waiting period on handgun purchases. “I don’t think (the waiting period) will have a massive effect on crime but I think it will...

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- About 20 liberal demonstrators tried to shout down Rick Santorum while he delivered his stump speech on the steps of the state capitol building here Sunday, yelling "racist" and "fascist" at the Republican presidential candidate. The anti-Santorum faction began chanting "Get your hate out of our state" when the candidate started his address. Standing before a microphone at the top of the steps, Santorum ignored them and continued speaking. The demonstration lasted about 15 minutes. Santorum supporters standing near the front of the crowd tried to come to his aid by holding signs

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich this morning chided the Obama administration, saying the president has “a goal getting us to pay European-level prices” for gas. “This president and his secretary of anti-energy, Dr. Chu, have as a goal getting us to pay European-level prices of $8 or $9. Dr. Chu was clear about that before he became secretary. He wants us to get to be a European-level price structure of $8 or $9 a gallon,” said Gingrich. “He said this week, in testifying in the House, he has ‘no intention of trying to lower the price of oil or the...

    Rick Santorum indicated that Newt Gingrich should drop out of the presidential race, arguing -- as Gingrich did during his surge -- that splitting the "anti-Romney" vote helped Mitt Romney win the Michigan primary and Washington caucuses and contributes to his overall success so far. "It's always harder when you've got to conservative running in the race as we have seen in Washington and we've seen in other states," Santorum said on Fox News Sunday. "We have the anti-Romney vote, if you will. Both Gingrich and I are slugging away." Santorum stopped short of calling for Gingrich to exit the...

    The best and most effective way to balance the budget is through booming economic growth and prosperity. I know. That is how we did it the last time we balanced the budget, when I was Speaker of the House, and it stayed balanced for four straight years. We produced, in fact, four straight record budget surpluses, totaling $560 billion over those 4 years. You can check the historical record yourself at We achieved that not by raising taxes in return for supposed spending cuts, but by cutting tax rates to create booming growth, and cutting spending. The growth then...

    I don't know if I've ever seen a conservative handle an interview with the liberal press more brilliantly than Newt on Meet the Press yesterday. He absolutely dismantled both David Gregory and Barack Obama effortlessly and persuasively with perfect clarity, complete honesty and a "cheerful" demeanor. No matter what Gregory threw at him, Newt parried it and threw it back in his face. Gregory was visibly frustrated throughout that he couldn't lay a finger on Newt despite his best efforts. This kind of confident performance and crystal clear communication to the public is how Newt took the House back in...
