Ralph Reed, who was so instrumental in the Religious Right's takeover of the GOP, now wants you to believe that the Evangelical vote is a myth
Turns out there are worse things you can do than be a Kenyan Muslim anti-colonialist. Okay, maybe not worse, but still something to fear. Mormonism! Cue the ominous music, the plural marriages and strange underwear. This, my dears, we cannot have.
Mitt Romney's town hall in New Hampshire was a disaster as Occupy Wall Street got him to explain why corporations are really the good guys.
The three way split that occurred in Iowa last night is actually representative of the fracture that exists within the GOP - Romney/Santorum/Paul.
Over the course of one Iowa winter's night Mitt Romney went from the destined GOP to nominee to being the frontrunner who conservatives won't vote for.
The winner of tonight's Iowa GOP caucuses will beat Bob Dole's record for the lowest amount of support for a winning candidate ever .
We all seem to make New Year’s resolutions, so here are a few recommended resolutions for our Republican friends.
Would Jeb Bush run as an establishment Republican or as a Tea Partier? It is unlikely but not impossible he could successfully straddle the fence but it is a hazardous course. Ideological purity is the prime motivator in Republican politics these days, and a soft stance which would gain Latino voters would lose WASP voters.
Despite the headline, the poll results paint a far less rosy picture for Republicans than for Democrats as the results show Obama defeating every possible Republican candidate.
According to the new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released tonight, the Republican Party might be in for an even bumpier 2012 than they could have imagined, as they are faced with choosing from a slate of very unpopular candidates. Sarah Palin had both the highest favorable and unfavorable ratings at 30% and 48% respectively.
A new Public Policy Polling survey of Republican primary voters released today revealed that not only is their no clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination in 2012, but there is also a four way tie between Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee with Ron Paul a distant fifth.
A nationwide poll of Republican voters was released by the Clarus Research Group, and it contained some bad news for Sarah Palin. While the race for the 2012 nomination remains wide open, support for Sarah Palin has declined 33% in a year. Mitt Romney leads the field followed by Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and Palin.
Mike Huckabee got aggressive with his fellow potential Republican 2012 presidential candidates today on Fox News Sunday. Huckabee anointed himself the man who can beat Obama in 2012, "I end up leading a lot of the polls. I 'm the Republican that clearly at this point does better against Obama than any other Republican."
The Des Moines Register released their new 2012 GOP poll for the state of Iowa today, and as expected the three most well known names, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Sarah Palin lead the pack. What is a surprise isn't the overwhelming favorability of Romney, but the high unfavorabilily rating for Palin, who is not favored by 39% of the state's Republicans.
One of the most interesting little tidbits in the latest CNN/Opinion Dynamics poll is that Barack Obama is not the most popular politician in the United States currently. Make no mistake, Obama is still popular with a 57% favorable rating, and he is still much more popular than any Republican in the country, but it is Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, not Obama, who has the highest favorability rating in the poll at 61%.
In an interview with Newsmax, Mitt Romney was asked about a growing libertarian movement within the GOP, and Ron Paul's victory in the CPAC straw poll. Romney managed to dismiss the defeat and also claim that, "I don't think there is a growing portion of Americans who are Ron Paul devotees." Romney completely dismissed Ron Paul and his CPAC straw poll victory.
Mitt Romney continued his 2012 presidential campaign launch disguised as book tour today on Fox News Sunday, where he claimed that Obama's positions are lending support to international 9/11 truthers like Ahmadinejad. Romney said, "These sorts of voices should not receive any kind of support from the words of the President of United States." Romney conveniently forgot that the truthers have been around since the days of George W. Bush.
