    A Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage poll shows businessman and radio talk-host Herman Cain now leading former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney among likely GOP primary voters in the fight for the 2012 Republican nomination. The exclusive poll, taken in the past 24 hours, shows Cain vaulting Romney 26 percent to 24 percent. The poll has a margin of error of 4.4 percent. Several other polls show similar results, establishing Cain as the new grass-roots frontrunner deadlocked with Romney, the establishment Republican choice. A new CBS poll showed Cain and Romney deadlocked, with each candidate garnering 17 percent of the vote. And a Quinnipiac University...

    Legislative endorsements triple Mitt Romney’s Granite State support AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today announced support from 27 New Hampshire state representatives, adding to his strong grassroots and conservative political support in the Granite State. “Gov. Perry’s record creating the nation’s best pro-jobs environment and commitment to get America working again is earning strong support from New Hampshire Republican leaders,” said Perry campaign manager Rob Johnson. “These 27 New Hampshire legislative endorsements triple the number of legislative endorsements announced by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney last week, and he’s been running for president continually for four years.” The following New...

    Maybe Mitt Romney doesn't have New Hampshire as wrapped up as some people are predicting....In today's Concord Monitor, Republican State Representative Steven Smith of Charlestown, NH has endorsed Herman Cain with this editorial: "Presidential candidate Herman Cain is uniquely qualified to approach the federal government as the morass that it is and work diligently on fixing it. Cain has experience taking over a large, troubled, complex mess and turning it into a successful enterprise, where the business owners and the employees all benefit. Cain understands government policy from a real-world perspective. In 1994, he challenged President Clinton with hard facts...

    Our nation needs a leader in the White House who understands the role of government and our economy. Governor Rick Perry has the strongest record of job creation, fiscal discipline, and executive branch leadership among the presidential candidates. As a governor, Rick Perry created a tremendous blueprint for job creation and as President, I know he will get America working again. I consider Governor Perry a friend and I am proud to endorse his campaign for President.

    Republicans want Sarah Palin to be their nominee, but they like Mitt Romney's chances better in a head-to-head match-up against Barack Obama, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll. Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee, has the support of 22 percent of Republicans surveyed, with Romney in second place, at 20 percent. Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Atlanta businessman Herman Cain tie for third place with 7 percent each. But of the Republican candidates, Romney runs the closest to Obama, at 38 percent to 51 percent. Obama outpolls former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty by 19 points and Palin...

    Bombarded by the media at both sites, Palin and Trump made it clear in their responses how highly they thought of each other. At Trump Tower, Trump called Palin “a terrific woman and a terrific friend” and said he would “love her to run.” Palin reciprocated Trump’s enthusiasm. Asked how she felt about a Palin/Trump ticket, Palin gushed, “That sounds exciting. Sounds unconventional.” While Trump refused to share details of what the two discussed at dinner (in full view of a window full of gawkers), Palin said topics included China and the GOP presidential bench. The two have been in...

    Every year the voting for our Person of the Year Award surprises me for one reason or another. Some years it's a runaway by one candidate while other years it's a neck and neck battle between two worthy people. This year fell into that later category but it was the two people -- well, one actual person -- battling for our honour that surprised me. In a year when Glenn Beck truly became a figure on the American political stage and Barack Obama made his greatest contribution to American conservatism by being Barack Obama, neither won the voting.

    (Graph at link) Conservatives4Palin(C4P) today reported that Gov. Palin’s internet search traffic is six times greater than the traffic for Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee, and Pawlenty. C4P’s story is based on Nate Silver’s “The 800-Pound Mama Grizzly Problem” published last night in the New York Times. The numbers are even more staggering when each candidate’s search traffic is analyzed. Silver wrote: Ms. Palin’s search traffic, since the start of 2010, is roughly 16 times that of Mitt Romney, 14 times that of Newt Gingrich, 38 times that of Mike Huckabee, and 87 times that of Mr. Pawlenty.

    CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire has certified former state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte (AY'-aht) as the winner of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Ayotte was endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and won a narrow victory over Ovide Lamontagne (LAH'-mohn-tayn). His conservative credentials and courting of the tea party pulled him close in the final days of the campaign. Lamontagne has until 5 p.m. to decide whether he'll seek a recount because the margin of victory fell within 1.5 percent of the total votes cast. The secretary of state's office says Ayotte's official margin of victory was 1,667...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Backed by the Tea Party Express and Sarah Palin, a little-known conservative lawyer from Alaska became the latest newcomer to the national political stage to take down an incumbent in 2010. In arguably the biggest political upset of the year, Joe Miller claimed the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate when incumbent GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded Tuesday evening. Murkowski gave up after failing to gain much ground in an count of outstanding absentee ballots. Miller will be the favorite in November in strongly Republican Alaska against Democrat Scott McAdams, the mayor of Sitka. But Senate Democrats moved...

    MORE than 13 months ago, I wrote a column that began: “Sarah Palin can be the Republican nominee in 2012. I am not saying she will be, but she can be. Those who underestimate her do so at their own risk.” I remember sniggering and mockery from those who could not find actual vegetables to throw. As was widely believed at the time, Sarah Palin was an idiot. Her interview with CBS’ Katie Couric had proved that. And Palin’s approval rating as governor of Alaska, once so high, had plunged to 54 percent. Palin was a gun-toting pit bull with...

Actually, no, the problem is that many conservatives have lost faith in the ability of Republican leaders to think.

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has decided not to run for governor next year - but will run for U.S. Senate instead, sources told the Daily News. A source familiar with Giuliani's thinking said the failed presidential candidate has been telling people he plans to run against Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2010 to fill out the remaining two years of Hillary Clinton's term. If elected, the source said, he could use that as a stepping stone to run for President in 2012 - rather than run for re-election to the Senate. A Giuliani spokeswoman downplayed the reports. "Rudy has a...

One month ago, Thompson became the first prominent national Republican to endorse Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the New York District 23 Congressional race. Palin made an even bigger impact by endorsing Hoffman a week and a half ago. In doing so, Palin lived up to her penchant for going against the mainstream and taking on powerbrokers inside her own party.
