The “Forgotten” Poll

As is the case in most Presidential elections, polling data is abundant and frequently contradictory not to mention confusing as well. One polling group uses certain assumptions based on previous elections about the makeup of the electorate while the next uses another set of assumptions, thus producing often wildly different results.

Mitt Sweeps, Media Weeps

OK. Maybe they’re not weeping but they certainly aren’t interested in the outcome of last night’s primaries. We were told endlessly that if Romney couldn’t pull off a win in Michigan, it was pretty much over for him. Well, he won and, predictably, the media apparently has little to say. The reaction this morning to [...]

Santorum robocall makes appeal to Michigan’s Democrats for votes

So, the “Consistent Conservative” is encouraging Democrat electoral mischief making (something that may well already be a factor in Mr. Santorum’s poll numbers in MI) in an effort to win a single state.  That doesn’t sound terribly conservative to me.  It sounds desperate and may well turn the MI election against him.  Here’s the article: [...]

CNN Calls Romney ‘Governor Mormon’

BWAHAHAHAHA! A wee slip of the tongue! Seriously, I believe that this is nothing more than a tongue slip but it does bring back memories of one of the funniest political slip ups ever. In Mitt’s first run for public office, his 1994 run for the Senate against Ted Kennedy, his opponent, John Lakian had [...]

National Journal: Gingrich to Hold Post-Caucus Press Conference

Gotta wonder what this is all about.  Does he want to distract people from his second electoral drubbing in one week or is he taking his ball and going home?  We shall see. Instead of the traditional election night party, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will hold a press conference after the Nevada Caucus on [...]

The Hill – Dick Morris: How Mitt Romney Suckered Gingrich in Florida

    I couldn’t agree more with this analysis from Dick Morris: For students of American politics, following the way the Romney campaign played Newt Gingrich in Florida is a lesson to learn and to keep.
