    According to the latest WMUR-CNN New Hampshire Primary Poll, 45 percent of Republican primary voters and 61 percent of Democratic primary votes say they have firmly decided who they will vote for. In the poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center Feb. 3-6, Trump continues to top the Republican field, with the support of 33 percent of likely primary voters. He is followed by Marco Rubio at 16 percent, Ted Cruz at 14 percent, John Kasich at 11 percent, Jeb Bush at 7 percent, Carly Fiorina at 6 percent, Chris Christie at 4 percent, and Ben Carson...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s lead widened in New Hampshire just days before the primary, according to the latest CNN/WMUR tracking poll. Thirty-three percent of likely Republican primary voters said they support Trump, giving the billionaire a 17-point lead over his closest GOP rival. Trump gained 5 points from a similar tracking poll last week. Trump now has more than double the support of Sen. Marco Rubio, who came in second with 16 percent support. Sen. Ted Cruz has 14 percent for third place. Gov. John Kasich follows with 11 percent, while no other GOP candidate broke single-digit support. The...

    Sen. Ted Cruz won the New Hampshire GOP debate. Cruz managed to stay above the hand to hand combat between the desperate governors and Sen Marco Rubio and Donald Trump. He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats' eventual nominee. Gov. Chris Christie went after Sen. Marco Rubio early and seemed to rattle him. Unfortunately Christie came across as...

The problem was he flubbed it. Rubio awkwardly pivoted four times to a well-rehearsed line that President Barack Obama "knows exactly what he's doing" as he tried to drill home the idea that he's the inevitable general election candidate - an unforced error that his rivals pounced on and that quickly went viral. "There it is. There it is. The memorized 25-second speech. There it is, everybody,"...

    As the New Hampshire primary fast approaches, I wish to remind voters that our next commander-in-chief must be of the highest character, cut from the rare cloth of our founders. Sometimes God gives us great gifts in ugly packages. Recent attacks on Ted Cruz from both the Trump and Dr. Carson campaigns gifted Cruz an opportunity to show his character and presidential instincts.

    Salon ^ | February 6, 2015 | Andrew O'Hehir
    SALEM, N.H. - Ted Cruz in person, on the campaign trail, is a study in contrasts. What I principally mean by that cliche is that Cruz makes a more plausible human being when seen up close than in his animatronic television appearances, but he does not resemble a human being who came into the world by the usual method. He's both cute and sinister, a highly discordant combination. He's like a marzipan man brought to life by the kiss of a magic fairy, stuffed into overly tight blue jeans and sent toddling into middle-school cafeterias in the middle of nowhere...

    What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, but made himself look like a royal, braying jerk in the process. Normally in these posts, I have three winners and three losers, but I don't think there even were three winners - but there were a whole bunch of losers....

    Jeb Bush said on Saturday that people who have a problem voting for him because of his last name "need to get therapy." The former Florida governor has struggled to gain traction in the Republican presidential race in part because many voters are leery of electing three presidents from the same family. "The Bush thing, people are just going to have to get over it, alright?" a defiant Bush said at a townhall gathering at the McKelvie Intermediate School gym here ahead of tonight's GOP debate. -snip- "I got no problems with this, and people that do, they either need...

    During Saturday night's ABC News debate, co-moderator Martha Raddatz, a personal friend of Barack Obama's, asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) an incredibly dumb gotcha question premised on the idea that Cruz is some kind of war-monger, but only when he wants to be. Cruz was first about the news that, in violation of treaty, North Korea launched fired a long-range rocket Saturday. Cruz gave an impressive and detailed answer about North Korean threat that included legitimate criticism of President Clinton's mishandling of his failed nuclear deal. Raddatz then attacked: ...

Federal Election Commission filings of 21 different Super PACs supporting the top 13 major party candidates show "29 individuals or organizations who gave $1 million or more" for a total of $99.4 million collected in a six-month period. Adding in the 13 campaign committees, to total raised in the second half of 2015 was $260 million.

    Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson's former top campaign aides think Carson's campaign botched the handling of his post-Iowa caucus trip home to Florida, the fallout of which has pervaded throughout the week. Before the caucuses began, Carson's campaign hastily said that the candidate was heading home "to get fresh clothes," amid speculation that he might be pulling the plug on his campaign. Barry Bennett, Carson's former campaign manager, and Doug Watts, his former communications director, told Business Insider that the candidate was asking for such speculation by making the announcement in the middle of the caucus fury....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...

    Last evening, Ted Cruz was at a town hall meeting in Salem, NH, when he was hit with a question about drug abuse. If you’ve followed Cruz’s campaign, you know that his own family has experience loss due to drug abuse. His older sister, Miriam became addicted to pain pills following and accident and slid into a life of drug abuse. Because it is a campaign season, the left used the town hall as an excuse for some low-level street theater. Not a day goes by on the New Hampshire campaign trail without residents grilling the men and women running...

    Jeb Bush insists this is not the final weekend of his presidential campaign. But it has the makings of a last stand. "I don't give a you-know-what about whether I'm popular or not. That is fleeting," he told 700 people in a middle school gymnasium here on Saturday, his largest New Hampshire crowd to date. A year since he began traveling the country in pursuit of the presidency, Bush is no longer always campaigning "joyfully," as he originally pledged. He has grappled with a long, slow fall from front-runner to also-ran status, enduring relentless insults from Donald Trump and suffering...

    Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have held onto significant leads in the final days before the New Hampshire primary, according to the Saturday results of a Umass Lowell/7 News tracking poll. Trump’s biggest challenge comes from Senator Marco Rubio, whose post-Iowa surge seems to have stalled at 14 percent in the tracking poll’s latest results. Senator Ted Cruz follows in third, at 13 percent. He’s ahead of Ohio Gov. John Kasich (10 percent), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (10 percent), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (4 percent), Dr. Ben Carson (3 percent), and Carly Fiorina (3 percent).

    I've knocked around Rand Paul quite a lot over the last year-plus, and I think most or all if it was well-deserved (I've also, it should be noted, praised him a few times as well, when he deserved it). But Paul's decision to drop out of the race today (before New Hampshire) in order to help unify the party to defeat Trump, shows that he, like Scott Walker, is a true Republican who believes in conservative principles, and for that he should be commended. See, there are two types of people who call themselves Republicans. The first are those who...

Right to Rise, a pro-Bush super PAC, has spent an estimated $20 million against Rubio. It is expected to launch a new ad this weekend featuring a clip of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), who endorsed Rubio Tuesday, fumbling to name one of his accomplishments. One senator who has endorsed Bush, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), is urging the PAC to rein in its attacks.

    With all due respect, indeed! On the Bloomberg TV show of that name that he co-hosts with Mark Halperin, John Heilemann today reported that the current and former governors in the GOP field--Bush, Kasich and Christie--think Marco Rubio is a "punk." Clarified Heilemann: "when I say 'punk,' they have the same view that Hillary Clinton had of Barack Obama [in 2008]: line-cutter, punk, man of no accomplishment." Evidence in support of Heilmann's claim comes from Jeb's interiew on CBS today, in which he flatly asserted that Rubio had accomplished "nothing" in the Senate. Readers will remember that yesterday, Joe Scarborough...

    So much for a new strategy. Donald Trump dramatically bulked up his campaign schedule in New Hampshire this week as he faced criticism that he doesn't do enough retail politics. But with a snowstorm barreling down on the state, the Trump campaign canceled a morning town hall in Londonderry -- his only campaign stop in the Granite State scheduled for Friday, just days out from Tuesday's primary contest. "Big storm in New Hampshire. Moved my event to Monday. Will be there next four days," Trump tweeted.

    This year's presidential primary is the first in which New Hampshire's voters will be required to show identification before they can cast their ballots ... When New Hampshire voters go to the polls Tuesday for the first presidential primary of the 2016 race, they will have to do something new. This year's presidential primary is the first in which the state's voters will be required to show identification before they can cast their ballots. Before the state's new voter ID law went into effect in 2013, voters could just give their name and address, get checked off the roll, and...

    Donald Trump’s climbdowns at the end of this week don’t stop with Ted Cruz, apparently. In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, Trump committed to attending the next Republican debate on Fox News on March 3rd, even with Megyn Kelly as moderator. He claimed that his boycott of the last Fox debate had “nothing to do with Megyn Kelly“:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO “I’ll be there, I have no objection to being there,” Trump said Friday on the “Steve Malzberg Show,” when asked if he’d be at the Fox News debate in March“And that had nothing to do...

    A candidate is moving up in the New Hampshire polls — but it’s the man who finished third in Iowa, Marco Rubio, and not the Iowa winner, Ted Cruz. Rubio has gained around 6 percentage points in the New Hampshire polls, while Donald Trump has lost 2 points (although Trump remains the favorite here). There’s still a tiny bit of pre-Iowa data in polling average, and the numbers will undoubtedly shift around a few points over the weekend. But if any candidate were emerging with massive momentum as a result of his Iowa performance, we probably would have seen it...

    PPP’s newest national poll finds the race on the Republican side tightening considerably in the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise loss in Iowa on Monday night. Trump’s lead has fallen to just 4 points- he’s at 25% to 21% each for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, 11% for Ben Carson, 5% each for Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and the now departed Rand Paul, 3% each for Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina, and 1% for Jim Gilmore. Rick Santorum had literally zero supporters on our final poll including him.
