    National Review ^ | 10/29/2012 | Michael Barone
    When reading one of the endless stories about a just-released poll Thursday night, a pair of numbers struck my eye: 60 and 37. Those were the percentages of white voters supporting Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, respectively, in the ABC/Washington Post tracking poll. Overall, the poll showed Romney leading Obama 50 to 47 percent. The reason those two numbers struck my eye is that they are identical to the percentages of white voters supporting Republicans and Democrats in elections for the House of Representatives in the 2010 exit poll. Overall, Republicans won the House popular vote by a margin of...

    Chapter 25 of this yearís Gospel Doctrine Class covers Alma 17-22 and encourages LDS members to share the gospel. Iím going to break away from my usual practice on commenting on the content of the lesson and instead talk about some of my experiences with Mormon missionaries. Over the years I have talked with literally hundreds of them. The vast majority of time our discussions have been quite courteous. One of the most encouraging things is how many are genuinely interested in hearing the wonderful news that eternal life is totally Godís gift to them. Sometimes they are eager to...

    In another sign that Republicans are uniting behind Mitt Romney with an eye to November, Rick Santorum's national campaign manager has signed on as Romney's deputy national director of coalitions. The Union Leader reports today that the Romney camp reached out to New Hampshire-based activist Mike Biundo not long after Santorum left the race for a post that will involve coalition-building with key conservative coalitions such as "tea party activists, evangelicals, the pro-life community and the Second Amendment community." Santorum has yet to formally endorse Romney, and his camp has been careful to note that a scheduled May 4 meeting...

  • McCainís Troubling Outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood

    02/22/2012 10:57:56 AM PST · by servo1969 · 25 replies ^ | Feb 22nd 2012 | Frank Gaffney
    Republican John McCain has been traveling the Mideast with a bipartisan delegation of his Senate colleagues. He seems to think the regionís ascendant Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood are people America can do business with. Call it pragmatism. Perhaps it is simply a cynical bid to secure the release of sixteen U.S. hostages, some of whom work in Egypt for the International Republican Institute, a non-governmental organization Sen. McCain has long chaired. Whatever his rationale, John McCainís warming to the Brotherhood is strategically catastrophic. It fails to recognize that groupís determination to destroy infidel nations like ours. It signals bipartisan...

    In the 15 states that are likely to decide who controls the White House and the Senate in 2013, Hispanic voters will represent the margin of victory. For the Republican Party, the stakes could not be greater. Just eight years after the partyís successful effort to woo Hispanic voters in 2004, this community ó the fastest-growing group in the United States, according to census data ó has drifted away. .Although Democrats hold the edge, Republicans have an opportunity. We also have a record of winning Hispanic voters in certain statewide and national elections. Here are four suggestions on how Republican...
  • Democrats Plan Briefings on Jewish Outreach

    Itís no surprise that the Democratic National Committee meeting in Chicago on Friday will include briefings on jobs and health care, issues critical to President Obamaís re-election. But ďJewish messagingĒ will be the third topic presented to top party donors and fund-raisers, according to a schedule obtained by The New York Times. The session, led Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the committeeís chairwoman, and Ira Forman, the Obama campaignís director of Jewish outreach, underscores a real but unexpected challenge for Mr. Obama. While Jewish voters generally still give the president high marks, some Jewish donors ó a major fund-raising constituency for Mr....

    This report confirms what Karzai reported yesterday while he was also channeling Woodsy Owl and accusing NATO of not giving a hoot. In recent months, Secretary of State Clinton and others have expressed hope that parts of the Taliban who are open to "dialogue" might be split off from their more outwardly "extreme" brethren. But as always, "war is deceit," and the Taliban can be expected to exploit the opportunity to gain legitimacy, perhaps even emerging at some point as a Hizballah-like "political party" that also happens to function as a state-within-a-state with its own armed forces. (The move toward...
