Trump Heading for Historic Primary Landslide

Polling in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the first few states to hold primary / caucus elections has been plentiful. Other states have been a bit more sporadic.

Donald

Trump Doesn’t Have to be Conservative, Humble or Polite to Fix America

In most elections I find myself gravitating to the most Conservative candidate. I have supported Conservatives for every level of office. Sometimes my pick wins, sometimes not. Now I don’t fall for that “most Conservative that can win” claptrap. That is a dog whistle call for a RINO. They believe that chasing after the Democrats […]

My Answer to the Thoughtful Post on the Magnitsky Act

Anonymous wrote this as a comment to my recent post on Trump and the original Magnitsky Act and I think it deserves a thorough response: I don’t think there is any due process burden on statements of condemnation. Saying the Magnitsky Act is an unconstitutional bill of attainder I think is wrong. Firstly, the implicated […]

Trump Bashing Cruz Supporters Can Dish It Out, but They Can’t Take It

While Ted Cruz has been mostly silent on criticism of Donald Trump, the same cannot be said about his supporters. There are a lot of people bashing Trump these days but none more vociferous than the Cruzers. And for the record, I am not blaming Cruz for the actions of his supporters. And the Trump […]

Polling Trends GOP Primary – Who is Trending UP? Who is Trending Down?

I am a frequent reader of Real Clear Politics. Most political junkies are very familiar with the site. They gather together a large number of polls and average the results. In theory, this smooths out the outlier  (which are sometimes outright liars) and uses the average of the polls to give a better look at […]

GOP Presidential Candidate Jim Gilmore on John Fredericks Show Tuesday!

Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore was on the John Fredericks Show yesterday and here’s the audio of it.

Remember Policy? John Kasich Does

I’ve often been bothered by the lack of policy and experience exhibited by the Carson and Trump camps. They resonate with voters. They speak our language. Yet, they refuse to run on actual policy. I think this is why they are winning in the polls, however. Voters aren’t looking for policy or reason or thoughtfulness. […]
