  • Poll: Trump [30%] retakes lead, Cruz [21%] surges in IA; Rubio second in NH

    Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third. Cruz's move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched. In New Hampshire, Donald Trump keeps his commanding lead, keeping up support from conservatives, Republicans and the independents who say they're coming into the GOP primary to vote for him. This month finds Marco Rubio nearly doubling his support and pushing into second place -- albeit far back of Trump -- at 13...

    The Republican establishment is nearing full-blown panic about Donald Trump… "He has a real shot at this. He is the clear front-runner," said Ron Bonjean, a consultant and former aide to GOP leaders on Capitol Hill…Robinson, who is not affiliated with any candidate, was scathing toward those GOP centrists who assert that Trump will be unable to translate his polling support into votes because of a weak ground game. "That is the wishful thinking of the establishment," he said. "That is what they tell themselves so they can sleep at night. The truth is, Trump has one of the better...

    There are many of us, perhaps millions, who believe that the Republican party as a governing force has been the lesser of two evils. We fear what the Democrats are doing to destroy the country but we’re angry about what the Republicans aren’t doing to repair the damage. This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been so popular. It’s why so many people are willing to tell pollsters that they support either of the anti-establishment candidates.Thankfully, there’s a third candidate who would stand in stark contrast to the ineffective Republican Establishment that has been harming the party and...

    New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn has abandoned all pretext of impartiality by launching an aggressive attack against Donald Trump. In an interview with the Boston Globe Horn says: "Shallow campaigns that depend on bombast and divisive rhetoric do not succeed in New Hampshire, and I don’t expect that they will now." She went on to say that establishment candidates like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio are "underestimated" and will almost certainly perform better than most. This despite their disappointing poll numbers, both nationally and in her state: "People are probably underestimating [New Jersey Governor] Chris Christie. And,...

    WASHINGTON - The New Hampshire ballot commission today rejected efforts to kick Canada-born Sen. Ted Cruz off the primary ballot based on his birth outside the United States.That clears a key legal and political obstacle as the Texas Republican seeks the GOP nomination for president. But it's not a clear win on the question of eligibility.Rather, the panel found that with the law of eligibility so murky, it can't second-guess the senator's own claims that he passes constitutional muster........Two asserted that Cruz is not a "natural born citizen" - the phrase used in the Constitution when discussing eligibility to serve...

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), as well as real estate mogul Donald Trump on the GOP primary ballot. Commission Chairman Bradford Cook said all decisions were unanimous.

    A former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party says Donald Trump should not be on the Republican presidential primary ballot on Feb. 9 because the GOP frontrunner has not proven he is a registered Republican and has expressed views “inconsistent” with the state and national party’s platform and by laws. In his usual, understated fashion, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski responded by saying that if this move were approved, “Mr. Trump’s supporters would probably riot in the streets of New Hampshire.” Normally I’d shrug off a comment like that as typical campaign rhetoric, but in this case it’s probably...

    Democratic New Hampshire Gov.

    Mitt Romney has said time and time again that he is not running for president. However, a new poll shows that the former Massachusetts governor's nonexistent campaign would lead the field in New Hampshire, if only he were to launch a third run for president (which he'd now have to do as a write-in candidate having missed the state's filing deadline). According to a Suffolk/Boston Globe poll of likely Granite State primary voters, if Romney was added to crowd of GOP presidential hopefuls, he would lead the field with 31 percent of the vote—more than double that of current frontrunner...

    Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third. While Iowa's Republicans generally feel Trump is ready to be commander-in-chief, Cruz scores even better on this measure, boosted by support from very conservative and Tea Party Iowans who feel he is ready to assume the post. That's more than say so about Trump, Carson, Rubio and Jeb Bush. Since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground -- and Ben Carson has lost ground -- among some key voting groups...

    Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is the last major Republican candidate to file his paperwork for the New Hampshire primary. Carson is near or at the top of most polls, but he rarely campaigns in New Hampshire. His trip to the Statehouse is his only stop in the state, and he’s scheduled to appear in Iowa less than three hours later. Carson now receives Secret Service protection, meaning security will be much higher at the Statehouse for his filing than for other candidates. It’s the last day for presidential candidates to pay $1,000 and file paperwork if they hope to get...

Alderman Keith Hirschmann originally proposed the motion, saying the board would empower Mayor Ted Gatsas in any efforts to stop a potential influx of 500 refugees from Syria. That figure came from Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard, who said he was told by members of the FBI that 500 Syrian refugees could be headed to New Hampshire.

    Now, 25 Republican governors – and one Democrat too – have said they don't want Syrian refugees in their states, as President Obama recommitted the U.S. to take a portion of this population fleeing from ISIS. In a press conference this morning in Turkey, Obama said that 'the United States has to step up and do its part,' while chiding those in the opposition party for suggesting there be a 'religious test' for entry into the United States. There's concern, after Friday's brutal attack in Paris, that ISIS fighters are infiltrating those fleeing Syria and will carry out future violence...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is facing a challenge to his eligibility for the Democratic primary ballot in New Hampshire because of his longtime status as an independent. The state's filing paperwork requires a candidate to declare as a registered member of whichever party he or she is running in. The complaint, filed Thursday, claims Sanders is ineligible because he has never been elected as a Democrat. Sanders declared himself a Democrat while filing to run last week. The state's five-member Ballot Law Commission, which rules on questions of eligibility, will take up the challenge Nov. 24.

    A new poll of New Hampshire Republicans by Monmouth University confirms the fading fortunes of the Jeb Bush campaign. Despite spending more on TV than all other candidates combined, Jeb has dropped to sixth place in nation's first primary state, a must-win for his Presidential ambitions. In July, Jeb Bush was second in New Hampshire. A great deal of Bush's candidacy was predicated on enjoying an enormous financial edge over his Republican rivals. When he launched his campaign this summer, an allied Super PAC announced it had raised just over $100 million to support Jeb in the primary. This announcement...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is surging in a key early-voting state in the first major survey taken since last week's Republican debate. A new Monmouth University poll released on Monday showed real-estate tycoon Donald Trump still dominating in the Republican primary, with 26% support among likely GOP primary voters.

He has jumped from 4% support in September to 13% now, putting him just behind Carson. Rubio led the other establishment-type candidates — including...
