  • Republican Race Tightens Nationally; Clinton Still Solid (PPP Poll)

    Public Policy Polling ^ | February 4, 2016 | Staff
    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.

    Donald Trump continues to hold a wide lead among likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire, according to a new CNN/WMUR tracking poll, with the pack vying for second place is beginning to break up. Behind Trump's field-leading 29% support, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio climbs to second place with 18% following his strong third place finish in Iowa, followed by Ted Cruz (13%) and John Kasich (12%) in a near-tie for third. Jeb Bush holds fifth place at 10%, a hair behind Cruz and Kasich, with Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina well behind at 4% each. The fight for second...

    Phyllis Schlafly, architect of the modern conservative movement and tireless opponent of mass immigration, says GOP hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% should be disqualified from the race for dishonestly saying one thing about amnesty in English and another in Spanish. "If Jeb's candidacy falters despite the $114 million he raised, the establishment's next choices, Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, have basically similar views," she wrote in her Monday World Net Daily column: Kasich said the 12 million illegals should be "legalized once we find out who they are," and Rubio said Obama's executive amnesty "can't be terminated...

    Republican operatives from inside and outside New Hampshire agree: Sen. Ted Cruz is all but doomed to finish below the top tier in the Granite State. The winning coalition Cruz put together in Iowa won't work in New Hampshire, they say, pointing to the fact New Hampshire has the second-lowest rate of church attendance in the country. So the edge that Cruz had among evangelicals isn't particularly applicable there. "I would advise Cruz to skip New Hampshire and go to South Carolina. I believe you shouldn't compete anywhere where it's not a favorable battlefield to win," said Stuart Stevens, a...

And Mr. Christie has a secret ally: Jeb Bush. Mr. Christie, whose White House hopes hinge on a strong showing in New Hampshire, is unleashing the kind of cutting and personal attacks that brought him renown in New Jersey but that pose a far greater risk in a presidential campaign,...

    Cruz’s numbers here aren’t a shock — he’s been in the high teens and low twenties for awhile — but Trump hasn’t dipped as low as 25 percent in a national poll since November and Rubio hasn’t seen a number as high as 21 percent since … ever. That makes some righty poll-watchers nervous since PPP’s credibility has been attacked in the past. Not only are they liberal, they were the subject of a famous critique of their methodology by Nate Cohn in TNR a few years ago. If you’re looking to throw out this result, which no other...

    Hillary Clinton wants to makes something very clear about her and Donald Trump: "We were not friends." "We knew each other, obviously, in New York," she told People magazine in an interview released on Wednesday. "I knew a lot of people." With daughter Chelsea by her side, the former secretary of state dismissed Trump's recent comments about her husband's infidelity. Trump has said that former President Bill Clinton is "one of the great abusers" of women. Clinton shrugged off Trump's comments as "politics," though not "the brand I approve of."

    For months, the state of play in New Hampshire has been less tumultuous. Donald Trump leads by a wide margin there, and has for some time.But A tracking poll from the University of Massachusetts and 7 News in New Hampshire suggests that this trend might be changing. The pollsters are contacting New Hampshire Republicans every day. And on both Tuesday and Wednesday, after his third in Iowa, Rubio's numbers ticked upward.This is in a poll with a margin of error of nearly five points, mind you, so an upward tick — or in the case of John Kasich, a downward...

    Is the power of the White House enough to get Pink Floyd back together for one more concert? The obvious answer to that question is "almost definitely not," but that isn't going to stop Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich from doing his level best to reunite the dormant group if he ends up winning the 2016 election. Kasich made his unexpected campaign pledge during a Feb. 1 interview with CNN... "...if I'm president," he decreed, "I am going to...try to reunite Pink Floyd..." First on Kasich's wish list for the reunion set: "Money," from 1973's Dark Side of the Moon.

    Prodded into discussing Israel’s conduct during the Gaza conflict, and interrupted for a second time by an angry attendee, Sanders told the man: "Shut up. You don’t have the microphone." The question that had preceded the eruption was from a woman who wanted to hear more from her senator about his position. He had recently abstained in a vote on Senate Resolution 498, which expressed support for Israel defending itself against "unprovoked rocket attacks" from Hamas. Sanders was one of the 21 members who didn't sign the unanimously passed resolution. While his eventual response didn't satisfy Israel's most ardent supporters...

    As the first 2016 nominating votes near, Donald Trump's strength as GOP frontrunner seems only to grow - nationally and in Iowa, where he's led in five of the last six state polls. But before the Trump freight train gets too far down the tracks, here's a word to the wise: Don't count out Ted Cruz, especially in the Hawkeye State. The Texas senator has one big advantage over Trump, he occupies the social conservative lane in the GOP primary field, and that lane tends to over perform in Iowa.

While Kasich has been doing poorly in both statewide, and national polling, he seems to be doing quite well in New Hampshire. His 15% gives him enough support to take at least a few of the available delegates. Donald Trump looks to take the majority of delegates, especially if Chris Christie and Ted Cruz stay below the 10% viability threshold.

Trump leads the Granite State poll with the support of 29 percent of those surveyed, followed by Rubio at 15 percentage points, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich tied at 11 points, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tied at 10 points. When the race is narrowed to Trump, Rubio, and Cruz, Trump's lead over Rubio slims to just two percentage points, 36-34. "If the Republican...

    Feel free to believe that there is a glimmer of hope for Ohio Gov. John Kasich's bid for the Republican presidential nomination. If that gives you comfort or plays to your own preferences, be my guest. I certainly wouldn't want to make you uncomfortable. But even if you believe that, try also to understand that Kasich's campaign is done. You can stick a fork in it. He will not be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. Recent endorsements from two New England newspapers prove that. Kasich continues to plug away in New Hampshire, hoping that lightning will strike and...

    The headline on this endorsement from the New York Times editorial board sounds more plaintive than aspirational: A Chance to Reset the Republican Race. Sure, it is … if one ignores practically everything that has driven the primary race to this point and hearken back to a time when tenure in the party establishment was considered a boon rather than a handicap. Plus, one has to dismiss practically everyone else in the field with substance-free one-liners.Mission accomplished, I guess: More than a half-dozen other candidates are battling for survival. Jeb Bush has failed to ignite much support, but at least...

    After more than a year of prognostication and punditry, the Iowa caucuses will finally get underway Monday night. But don't expect Republican candidates Jeb Bush, Chris Christie or John Kasich to linger over the results. They'll already be in New Hampshire. -snip- Bush, after predicting an Iowa win back in May, denied his travel plans had anything to do with his plummeting poll numbers, saying his flight out of Iowa was "just a matter of logistics." "You guys control expectations. I can't control what I can't control," the former Florida governor said. Bush tersely noted some reporters were already referring...

    Money may be growing tight for four Republican presidential hopefuls clustered under Donald Trump and Ted Cruz - just when they're about to need it the most. Financial reports coming out Sunday will reveal those who began the year with enough cash to put their long-range campaign plans into motion. -snip- The financial health of the campaigns of Christie, Kasich, Bush and Rubio is critically important because they're competing not only with each other, but with Trump, a billionaire who has vowed to spend whatever it takes to win, and Cruz, who began the year with $19 million in the...

    If Donald Trump ends up on stage this July formally accepting the GOP presidential nomination, don't be surprised if everyone from Washington Republicans to Twitter conservatives gathers outside the convention arena in Cleveland to burn Mike Murphy in effigy. -snip- Perhaps unsurprisingly, some disgruntled donors have struggled to keep their displeasure with Murphy to themselves. As one nameless Bush backer grumbled to Politico during the latest round of venting in the media, "You might as well light all this money on fire." -snip- Now, with the spectre of the Trumpocalypse looming over the GOP on the eve of the Iowa...

    This weekend in San Francisco while speaking to the National Automobile Dealers Association, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said, "First and foremost we need to control our border." "The 40 percent of the people that have come here illegally came with a legal visa and overstayed their bounds," he added. "We ought to be able to figure out where they are and politely ask them to leave."

    ...At this very critical juncture in our history, while our nation and our liberties have been ravaged by the Obama years, and life as we know it in this nation hangs precariously by a thread, Fox News, Limbaugh, Levin, and Hannity have gambled with our future, knowing we have no collateral to back up the game. For months, these fair weather friends of conservatism have heaped slovenly, starry-eyed adoration on Donald Trump. Trump - that gilded toad, who's conservative history began at about the time he decided to run as a Republican has been shoved in our faces from the...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday (January 30) called on Iowans to be sure to show up on Monday to caucus for him. "If we can win, here, if we win in Iowa... we can run the table for the first time ever," Trump said. "But you know what? I have to say this, don't be insulted, but you haven't had a winner in 16 years." Trump said he needed a bigger edge over Senator Ted Cruz, his closest rival in the GOP race. "I don't like these five points, so you gotta get out," Trump said. The NBC...
