While Marco Rubio won his first state (Minnesota) and surged late in Virginia and Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas, Oklahoma, and Alaska for a total of four state wins, Donald Trump did very well in the Super Tuesday primaries.  So well, in fact, that conservatives are beginning to...

Even before yesterday’s Super Tuesday primaries, it seemed that Cruz and Rubio were locked in a game of Chicken, and it promised to be a bumpy ride. The same holds true now:

The game of chicken, also known as the hawk-dove game or snowdrift game, is an influential model of conflict for...

For months now, Donald Trump has spouted the same line on immigration, promising to build a border wall and deport people here illegally.  Last night, he admitted he would not deport the 11 million people in the United States illegally.  It was posturing.

Trump appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. ...

Donald Trump launched his campaign popularity with a hard line on immigration, not limited to The Wall.

It struck a chord with the electorate, as I noted in a guest column at National Review on July 13, 2015, Trump’s Lesson: Voters Are Furious about Illegal Immigration:

The biggest take away from the CNN Republican Debate is that contrary to prior promises, Donald Trump says he will not release his income tax returns because he is being audited.

There is no law, that I’m aware of, prohibiting such release. It sounded like a massive dodge, since IRS audits can...

About a month ago, when Donald Trump was claiming that Ted Cruz probably was not eligible to be president, Trump was questioned by Jake Tapper about whether Marco Rubio was eligible.

Trump exhibited some legal understanding of the issue, citing an op-ed written by Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe. Trump’s conclusion was that...

It’s something of a sideshow, but nonetheless interesting.

Breitbart.com has been all over Marco Rubio for months over the Gang of 8 and immigration in general. I don’t think Rubio has responded directly before, or if he did, it was the usual type of campaign responses to media.

During Saturday night’s NH GOP debate, Marco Rubio was asked how he planned to tackle social issues with millennial voters, in particular issues of life and marriage.

Rubio discussed abortion as a two-fold issue — one dealing with women’s rights and the other with the right to life. “I’ve chosen to err on...
