  • The Cruz/Rush/National Review strategy - (vanity post)

    05/03/2016 9:35:40 AM PDT · by Ge0ffrey · 89 replies
    I think that I now understand that Cruz and Rush and even the National Review have all been on the same page with a strategy that is about to fail. Let Trump knock out all the other candidates and then Cruz can knock out Trump. It might have worked if Cruz had been more likable but he's Godawful. I've had reservations about Trump from the beginning, but if Phyllis Schlafly's on board, so am I. If Trump morphs into some kind of typical liberal after he becomes president, we'll fire him

    ...The latest statistics this week from Pennsylvania’s elections bureau show more than 214,000 registered voters have switched this year. That amounts to 3 percent of the state’s 8.2 million registered voters. Carbon County is among the state’s hot spots. This is the first year voter registration in the state can be done online, making it easier than getting the paperwork, filling it out and submitting it. Many of those switching parties reported wanting to vote in Pennsylvania’s April 26 primary, and the switching accelerated in the weeks before Monday’s deadline for Pennsylvanians to register to vote in the election or...

    In a super-blue state like Massachusetts, Super Tuesday was the Election Day that mattered. The outcome in November is a foregone conclusion: The Democratic presidential nominee will win the state by a landslide. So Tuesday's primary election was the only chance Bay State voters had to cast a ballot that might have an impact. I cast mine for Bernie Sanders. As a free-market, strong-defense, Reaganite conservative, I have voted Republican much more often than not. But heading into Super Tuesday, every indication was that Massachusetts Republicans, like GOP primary voters in most other states, were poised to give Donald Trump...

    Thousands of Massachusetts Democrats have denounced their party affiliations since January 1 to jump across the aisle and join the ranks of Independent or Republicans. Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats, or 1.3 percent of the party's Masachussetts population, left to vote in the Republican primary Tuesday. More than 16,300 of that group have "unenrolled" or become Independent voters, while 3,500 have joined the GOP. Mass. Secretary of State William Glavin attributed the switches to the "Trump phenomenon." The billionaire candidate has a significant lead over fellow top contenders Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in recent state polls. "The tenor of...

    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire’s primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Sunday he thinks he can persuade supporters of Republican front-runner Donald Trump to back him in the 2016 race. Mr. Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont, said on CBS that his message about economic inequality can appeal to Trump backers who are angry about lower wages and job losses. "Many of Trump's supporters are working class people and they are angry," Mr. Sanders said.

    A fiendishly clever theory from Peter Beinart. Remember “Operation Chaos”? That was Rush Limbaugh’s plan to have GOP voters wreak havoc on the Democratic nominating process in 2008. With McCain’s nomination already all but assured and Obama clinging to an apparently insurmountable lead over Hillary, Rush encouraged Republicans in states with open primaries (i.e. states where you don’t have to be registered as a party member to vote in that party’s primary) to cross over and vote for Hillary in the Democratic primary instead. The idea was to drag the primary process out for Democrats as long as possible, forcing...

    Don’t look now, but President Obama could actually lose his party’s nomination contest in this week’s Democratic primary contest in Texas. Probably not to any one of the three candidates opposing him, but he could still get less than 50% of the Democrat votes in the Texas Democratic primary. That would be pretty embarrassing. Kind of a spontaneous “no confidence” vote among Democrats.

There is no way in hell they'll vote for Obama. Does no one remember "Operation Chaos" led by Rush Limbaugh? These polls are overweighting democrats (and minorities too) big time as a result of this fallacy. Look at Pennsylvania as a great example! The number of democrat registrations was abnormally large.

A joint convention of the Democratic executive committees in Cheatham, Houston and Montgomery counties will now determine who the nominee will be.

    CHICAGO - As Barack Obama prepares to resume campaigning today, polls show that he has made inroads with former Hillary Rodham Clinton backers and hit the 50 percent support mark among registered voters for the first time. It's a typical post-convention bounce that Obama will be looking to sustain as he travels to Ohio today and Pennsylvania tomorrow. According to a Gallup daily tracking poll released yesterday, 81 percent of Clinton supporters say they will back Obama, up from 70 percent before the convention. Sixty-five percent of those voters are certain they will vote for the Illinois senator, up from...

    In one sense, it's incomprehensible that Barack Obama would forgo an opportunity to reunite his party by picking Hillary Clinton as his running mate. But in his place, wouldn't you be willing to sacrifice a little if it guaranteed you'd never have to view and smell Bill Clinton's sock feet propped up on the Oval Office desk? But whatever will this messianic emissary of change do to unite his party? That is a legitimate question, is it not, since unity, harmony, love and bliss have been Obama's main campaign themes since his entry onto the presidential campaign stage? How, inquiring...
  • BREAKING: Hillary Won't Instruct Delegates to Vote for Obama!!!

    No Guidance From Clinton Speaking to reporters after her address to the New York delegation, Clinton offered delegates no instruction on how to cast their votes, Amie Parnes reports. "I will be telling my delegates that I will vote for Barack Obama," she said. "How they vote is a more personal decision. They want to have their chance to vote for me. That is what traditionally happens ... some people are having to make up their minds because there are arguments pulling them both ways." Many of Clinton's delegates have already made up their minds. Some of her pledged delegates...
  • Rambunctious Clinton loyalists make anti-war protestors look sober, savvy

    The are two kinds of demonstrators rallying outside the Pepsi arena and throughout the Mile High City - but only one can really wreck the Democrats' love-fest. First, we have the street activists who operate outside mainstream politics and tend to argue for radical positions. Unlike in 1968, the dedicated anti-war liberals come off as sober, savvy, and fixated on long-term goals. The second group is the collection of rambunctious pro-Hillary Clinton loyalists who are doing their best to create chaos within the convention - and real trouble for party nominee Barack Obama. The Clinton die-hards seem like political brats...

  • Pelosi to delegates: Stop wallowing over primary results (It's just time to move on, huh?)

    DENVER -- Stop wallowing, the primary election is over. That was the message House Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivered this morning even as she acknowledged that reconciliation between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton camps was not yet complete. She told reporters before addressing the California delegation that women will be the key to beating John McCain, and she considered it a personal mission to get more women behind Obama. A majority of women support Obama, according to recent polls, but recent polls also suggest as many as one in four Clinton supporters would vote for Republican presumptive nominee John McCain. "There's...
