So looks like Romney racked up some early, easy wins tonight, but if I’m in the Romney camp…I’m not a happy camper. Why? Several reasons… First, Santorum and Gingrich weren’t even on the ballot in Virginia. And while Romney did get nearly 60% of the vote…it was against Ron Paul. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. [...]
David Frum has determined that Ron Paul “minions” (by which he means United States citizens who are supporting, contributing to, and volunteering for the Ron Paul campaign) are trying to “hijack” the Republican Convention (by which he means working to get delegates who support Ron Paul elected to the convention). How are the “minions” going to pull off this nefarious plot? This is the unbelievable part… and one hell of a scoop by David Frum… wait for it… They are going to understand the rules, bylaws, process, and etiquette for electing GOP delegates in every state, then try to get Ron Paul delegates elected. Holy crap! I mean – how underhanded can you get?

Public Policy Polling is out with their final numbers and it’s a photo finish… It looks like pretty much everybody has lost support in this except Santorum and Gingrich. And Santorum hasn’t had millions of dollars in negative ads lobbed his way. Maybe that’s why his favorability numbers are so high… Santorum’s net favorability of [...]
Lots of talk recently about Ron Paul’s newsletters. But, as some of you may remember, we covered this ground a LONG time ago. In fact, the first mention of it was back in August 2007 in a post I wrote called Being Realistic On Ron Paul, where I called upon his supporters to answer 7 [...]

Public Policy Polling is out with their latest numbers and they bode well for the perennial dark horse from Texas. First, let’s look at the numbers compared between the last poll and this one… So why has Newt lost traction? A few reasons… Gingrich has now seen a big drop in his Iowa standing two [...]
