    Barack Obama easily won New Hampshire against East Coast governor, Mitt Romney by over five percentage points. Obama won that same state by double-digits against Arizona Senator John McCain. In 2004, New Hampshire went to Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry. In fact, you have to go all the way back to the year 2000 since weíve seen the last Republican win New Hampshire during the presidential election. According to a new poll, Donald Trump appears ready to challenge New Hampshire and put it back into the Republicanís win column for the first time in sixteen years, a harbinger of other...

    A display created by Dartmouth College Republicans to honor fallen police officers was torn down by Black Lives Matter activists and replaced with a hateful message about honoring the "perpetrators" of anti-black violence. The Republicans reserved space on the campus bulletin board and followed all school regulations. But the BLM radicals removed the display without permission, saying that it was "offensive" to blacks and "white supremacist." Daily Caller: At the bottom, the display said in big letters, ďBLUE LIVES MATTER.Ē This last part of the display appears to have outraged Black Lives Matter supporters at Dartmouth, several of whom vocally...

So bad, in fact, that Joe agreed with Mike Barnicle that Cruz as nominee = Chuck Schumer as Senate Majority Leader. In making his case against Cruz, Joe said "there's a reason why in 2008 there was not a single Republican representing anybody in all of New England in Congress."

Failure to live up to oneís beliefs is called being a human. Being a hypocrite is when a person behaves in ways that are inconsistent with his expressed beliefs because he doesnít actually believe the things he is saying. At the core of true hypocrisy there usually lies one motive: Power. To put it another way, when people tell you things they donít actually believe, they are usually...

The Nevada Republican Party reported Wednesday morning that more than 75,000 voters participated in the contest. While that might not seem like a stunning number in a state with a population of somewhere around three million, that turnout absolutely demolished the participation record from 2012, when only about 33,000 Republican voters showed up to caucus.

John Kasich, the second-place winner, received four delegates. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Ted Cruz won three, while Rubio, a Florida senator, won two.

The six-term senator had previously endorsed Jeb Bush and sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2000.

The Cruz campaign pulled out all the stops in a manic effort to secure victory. Instead, it appears he will finish a distant second or third to Donald Trump. It is a finish that has his donors reconsidering the longer term viability of a campaign that is now for the first time in weeks, said to be spending far more dollars than it is taking in. And where Marco Rubio now appears poised to receive an influx...

    The Donald Trump campaign began courting top staffers with the Koch-backed group Americans for Prosperity late last year, in order to bolster its ground game ahead of big primary nights in March, according to BuzzFeed News. The billionaire businessman's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is a former AFP state director whose intricate knowledge of New Hampshire paid dividends in that primary. One top AFP staffer in a March primary state said he was approached by Lewandowski, who told him Trump "was for real. He's going all the way." "Anecdotally, I'd say a lot of people have been approached," another source close...

The size of the commissions is not disclosed in the appeal circulated early Friday by Republican operative Liz Mair, and she did not immediately respond to a request for details.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump took on the press and his most recently vanquished opponent at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan Monday night, telling the crowd he hates the press, but would never kill them like Russian President Vladimir Putin has been accused. Trump said again that he was not offended that Putin praised him, even though he has been accused of killing journalists. "I don't like that. I'm totally against that," Trump said. "By the way, I hate some of these people but I'd never kill them." He pretended to reconsider, saying , "Let's see. No, I wouldn't....
