Chalkening

Thanks in large part to the Emory University students who pathetically panicked after seeing pro-Trump messages written in chalk on campus sidewalks, pro-Trump messages are now appearing on other college campuses.

The whole thing is going viral on Twitter under the hashtag #TheChalkening.

Here are some choice examples:

I cannot recall a campaign season even remotely like this one, where the majority of American voters dislike both frontrunners.  This was hinted at following the Florida primary and is confirmed by a recent CBS News/New York Times poll:

Compared to frontrunners in previous presidential primary races, Trump and Clinton’s unfavorable ratings...

The Republican candidates made a lot of pledges to the record-breaking pro-Israel crowd at last week’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference in Washington, D.C.

Among them was the promise that they’ll move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

So, if he becomes President, will Donald Trump, Ted Cruz...

At a campaign event in Washington State yesterday, the former president encouraged the audience to support his wife’s candidacy while bashing the “awful legacy of the last eight years.”

Is Bill Clinton’s advanced age catching up to him?

To all the Trump supporters out there, and to The Donald, don’t get your hopes up about Trump defeating Hillary in New York State in a general election.

It’s delusion. Trump does have a strong base of support in Upstate NY, the vast area north and west of New York City.

2016 turnout

One of the best things Republicans have going for them in 2016 is voter enthusiasm. So far in the primary process, voter turnout greatly favors the GOP over Democrats.

America Rising Squared has come out with what looks like the first general election ad targeting Democrats.

Logically, Donald Trump should be the worst candidate against the Hillary machine.

He has a colorful history that would be an oppo-researcher’s dream.  Like taking candy from a baby.

And his negatives are in the stratosphere. Gallup just released a survey showing that Trump’s negatives not only are high, they are of a...
