2012 Republican Primaries Tag

Endgame quick analysis: Great night for Santorum. Now he has to show he can win with Newt also in the field and when Romney cares enough to spend money and attack. Horrible night for Romney. Another hole in the bubble of electability, and the new narrative...

Sometime late last night or early this morning Eastern time, the final results in Nevada were released. Romney came in with a 1% lower percentage of the vote than in 2008, but more significantly, both Romney's actual number of votes and Republican participation in the caucuses...

Looks like turnout down 200k from 2008.  Notice that when Romney ties/wins (IA, NH, FL) no turnout surge, when Newt won in SC huge turnout surge.  Turnout will be important in November 2012, and while Romney is winning, he's not motivating new voters to come...

Tweet from DrewMTips, a Newt supporter, who contributes to AceOfSpadesHQ and his own blog: Here was my response: Correct diagnosis? Update 4:10 p.m.:  I think this may be more of a concern than Romney hatred, people who became active in politics since the election of Obama who look at Romney...

There is a trend developing to assign equal blame to the poisoned atmosphere in the Republican campaign, as if there were no cause just effect. I'm not going to allow history to be rewritten the way the Romney campaign and its supporters tried to rewrite the history...

In keeping with the video of the day, the polling isn't exactly clear on what is happening here. On the one hand, numerous polls show Romney moving to a mid-to-high single digit lead in Florida, but Gallup and most other national polls show no upward movement for Romney...

Endgame assessment: It's almost like there were two debates. Early on Romney scored points against Newt on Freddie Mac and the "wealth issue," and Santorum scored major points against Romney on Romneycare.  The first half of the debate was not strong for Newt, although I...

The only way Mitt Romney wins a nomination is by destroying others.  It was true in 2008, and it's true in 2012.  He is incapable of bringing people together with positive inspiration.  He had the chance early in this cycle to prove he would not run the...

Politico's homepage top headline is The right drops a bomb on Newt featuring photos of Ann Coulter, Tom DeLay, Elliot Abrams and Matt Drudge. Just like in December, the rise of Newt has caused panic in Republican circles. In December the charge was led by National Review, and now...
