New Hampshire and Iowa are Not Only VERY White But Regional

Before the media gets too caught up pretending that New Hampshire and Iowa are great indicators of what the “folks out there” are thinking, it’s a little crazy to think that these two states weed out our presidential candidates when both of them put together don’t have the populations of New York (which isn’t voting… Read More »

Larger Editorial: Actually, Rubio May Be In Trouble…

It’s tempting to overthink New Hampshire—a state that is not really indicative of America, but has huge influence over its presidency—and reconfigure the race for about a week…until the next primary reshuffles it again. All the breathless coverage usually misses the point, but perhaps not in the case of Rubio’s stingingly weak showing. A week… 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. OR how this will dramatically change the race…blah blah blah… The truth is that Donald Trump has been leading in New Hampshire for months. If he had lost tonight it would have spelled big trouble for… Read More »

Does The GOP Still Need Carly Fiorina?

I think it’s been pretty transparent what Carly Fiorina’s role in this election has been: to talk shit about Hillary Clinton. The wise sages in the Republican Party had to find a female candidate—any female candidate so that it wouldn’t just be dozen men on stage talking about how evil Hillary Clinton is. In fact, even… Read More »

Does John Kasich Have a Real Shot at Being President?

One of the biggest stories coming out of New Hampshire right now is John Kasich doing pretty well in second place. This isn’t entirely unexpected since Kasich has been polling at 15% to 18% for a while now, and that’s…well, almost exactly what he’ll wind up with. In fact, New Hampshire offered very little surprises,… 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 »

But Seriously, Why in the Hell is Jim Gilmore Still in This Race?

“What do you think Jim Gilmore is doing right now?”–No one, ever. Or at least not since this race has started. In fact, many of you right now are thinking “Who’s Jim Gilmore?” Which is perhaps the reason that the former Virginia governor-turned-presidential laughing stock got a measly twelve votes in Iowa. Huffington Post interviewed one of… Read More »

What if Hillary Actually Wins New Hampshire? The Upside of Fighting Back

Okay, so I don’t think Hillary will actually win New Hampshire, unfortunately. Still, if you look at the poll numbers over the last few days, it does seem like a staggering change of fortune. Roughly a week ago, Bernie had as much as a 30-point lead, and perhaps closer to 35-points. The fact that someone could write… Read More »

But Seriously, Why Don’t Young Women Support Hillary?

As I just pointed out, the only category of women that Hillary doesn’t do well in is women under the age of 30. Now, I kind-of find this hard to believe since among celebrity women she’s doing terrific with the Amy Schumers, Lena Dunhams, Natalie Portmans, and even Taylor Swifts, and it’s the women roughly in her… Read More »

Actually, Hillary Does Amazing with Female Voters

The media keeps touting the headline “Bernie beats Hillary in women!” Or some such variation of the idea that Hillary is a dismal failure who can’t even attract female voters the way Obama attracted black voters in ’08. Forgetting that Hillary polled better than Obama in black voters and they only gradually started voting for… Read More »
