For GOP, South Carolina and New Hampshire Are Actually Great Predictors

For the Democrats, Iowa and New Hampshire are not always accurate and they don’t even usually pick the same winner. [It’s also been known to happen that the winner of neither goes on to win the nomination, just ask Bill Clinton.] Then South Carolina has gotten it right…about 66% of the time. Not exaclty a… Read More »

Could Trump Actually Be the Nominee? It’s Looking That Way…

Trump’s “stunning” win in New Hampshire (so says a media that thinks a months-long polling advantage is surprising) may be a bigger deal than it at first appears. “But Alabama Liberal, you just said Bernie’s win was no big deal?” That’s right, but that’s because the state is Bernie’s backyard, lilly-white, and he’s not polling well… Read More »

New Hampshire Doesn’t Change a Thing

The headlines seem to be some variation of “Hillary is in big trouble!” Or how Trump and Sanders dominated.

In fact, New Hampshire offered very little surprises,… Read More »

Is Chris Christie Afraid to Go Home?

We just asked if Chris Christie was done in this race, now it’s time to wonder “Is he afraid to go home?” Right before the New Hampshire primary, Christie said “I’m going to South Carolina even if we place 6th in New Hampshire.” Yet he now seems to have changed his mind since he may… Read More »

Is It Over For Chris Christie?

Just now, his campaign released a statement that he was thinking about what to do with his largely-failed presidential run. This is a far cry from a guy who said right before the New Hampshire primary that “even if I place sixth, I’m going to South Carolina.” Well, 6th place might be too hopeful. Christie… Read More »
