  • Kansas delegates see Trump’s VP helping with GOP skeptics

    Associated Press Washington Times ^ | Friday, July 15, 2016July 16. 2016 | JOHN HANNA
    Kansas delegates to the GOP National Convention said Friday that Donald Trump’s choice of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate will help Trump with Republicans who remain wary of his presidential candidacy. The selection of Pence for vice president drew praise not only from Trump’s most prominent Kansas supporter, Secretary of State Kris Kobach , but also from delegates who are pledged to vote at the convention for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. State Treasurer Ron Estes, a Rubio delegate, said Pence’s selection makes him feel more comfortable with Trump’s candidacy, though he had...

    natesilver (Nate Silver, editor in chief): I’m not ready to accept yet that we’ll have a whole new map this time around. There will probably be some differences, yes. But my prior is that we’ll still have mostly the same swing states as last time, and I haven’t seen persuasive enough evidence yet to convince me otherwise. Here’s why: These polls are showing huge, enormous numbers of undecided voters. In that Monmouth poll of New Jersey, for instance, it’s Clinton 38 percent and Trump 34 percent, leaving 28 percent undecided, voting third party or saying they’ll sit out the general...

    At the time of this article, we have less than a week before we decide to continue our current path as a nation, or choose a different one. In America, there are many people who simply do not follow politics, and as such, those people are left with an epic struggle of responsibly choosing their next candidate. Their struggle is mired in choosing their candidate based on what the media says, what campaign ads say, and who their friends and family are voting for. Yet, apart from the “noise” of these overwhelming influences is a very real and very harsh...

    My wife is a Filipina, an RN who came to the US eighteen years ago on a work visa. She's now a newly naturalized citizen, and she just got through casting her very first mail-in ballot. She just went on a mini-rant after watching a news segment on the two presidential campaigns' efforts to court "the much-sought-after undecided women's vote," women constituting a sizable majority of the "undecideds," apparently. Her exasperated and repeated refrain: "I just can't believe they could still be undecided - what kind of woman can be that stupid!" Her rant voiced a strong confirmation of her...

    A focus group of undecided voters appeared to be split over Mitt Romney's debate performance on foreign policy Monday night, with some saying he failed to distinguish how he would do things differently from President Barack Obama and others saying he finally came across as more "humane and relatable." The group, appearing on Fox News' Sean Hannity show along with Republican strategist Frank Luntz, declared Obama the overall winner of the debate when the two candidates stuck strictly to foreign policy and military issues. But when the debate veered into economic policy as a national security issue, most in the...

I’d expect to see very little impact to the Mitt-mentum that developed after the first debate, for reasons which I’ll address in a moment.That wasn’t the conclusion reached by Frank Luntz’ focus group of former Barack Obama voters, and now undecideds, in Nevada. That panel overwhelmingly chose Mitt Romney as the winner, with observations about Romney’s presidential mien and Obama’s defensiveness and lack...

    Dear Wavering Voter: No, abortion rights and access to contraception will not be jeopardized if Mitt Romney becomes president. Not remotely, not vaguely, not even close. No woman in America, including Sandra Fluke, will have war made upon her by a President Romney. Maybe you think the job of a president is to be our DJ-in-Chief and set the mood music for the country. In that case, the slow-jam Obama administration has everything to recommend it, while a Romney presidency may get on your nerves like a hokey country song. But it won't get in your way. How am I...

    One of the more fashionable debates today is whether the 2012 election will be more of a choice between two candidates, or a referendum on the party in power. Over at The New Republic, Ed Kilgore provides one of the more cogent arguments for the former. Kilgore's assertion flies in the face of the conventional wisdom: That in an incumbent election, the electorate engages in a two-step process. First, it decides whether it likes the incumbent. If it does, the incumbent is re-elected. If it doesn’t, it then asks whether the challenger is acceptable. If the challenger is acceptable, the...

    Let’s get something straight this campaign season. There are no “undecideds.” Or at least there shouldn’t be. If there are, they should be banned from voting. As Dean Wormer said in Animal House, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.” And if you’re truly undecided, that’s exactly what you’re doing. So for those wannabes who think it’s desirable and politically correct to seem overly “deliberative” during a poll, do us all a favor: pick a side. The choices have never been clearer.

    If current survey trends continue, Obama will finish with less than 50 percent in the polls. Even discounting the Nader vote (some people never learn), the undecided voters could tip the race either way. How will they break? Since there is no incumbent, they cannot automatically be assigned to the challenger; and since turnout is likely to be huge, the current undecided voters will probably make their way to the polls and cast their ballots. But for whom? At the beginning of this contest, Obama effectively made the case that the election was a referendum on Bush’s performance in office....

    Based on that question, there are signs that undecided voters may be more inclined to move to McCain than to Obama. The largest number of undecideds – 38 percent – would rather get advice from McCain – that’s nearly three times as many as the 13 percent that would go to Obama. The remaining say “neither” (27 percent) or are unsure (18 percent). Furthermore, independent voters pick McCain by a 15-point margin (41 percent – 26 percent). As one would expect, most Obama voters — 78 percent — say they would go to him for advice. Similarly, fully 83 percent...

My gut is that if undecideds are that high, John McCain is President.  Michigan is a lot of electoral votes and we saw throughout the primaries that Obama never really closed well. The undecideds always broke hard against him. Obviously, it is far too early to be making statements like this, ...
