Pollsters, media, desperately trying to hold Ohio for Obama

Posted: October 22, 2012 at 8:50 am   /   Elections, Politics

I am usually hesitant to make out-and-out predictions, but I am sorely tempted to come out and say that Mitt Romney is going to win Ohio. And if he wins Ohio, he almost surely wins the election, given that Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina are seeming increasingly out of reach for Obama. Most Electoral College […]

Obama demands transparency, practices opacity

Posted: June 21, 2012 at 2:30 pm   /   Politics

Claiming executive privilege is the informational equivalent of boarding up a window. It says, “You may not look in here. What was once visible is now hidden.” And yet transparency is exactly what Obama demands of others: President Obama invoked executive privilege to prevent further congressional oversight of the Justice Department’s Fast and Furious operation […]

Pollsters getting it wrong: America has swung heavily towards the Republicans

Posted: June 8, 2012 at 12:15 pm   /   Elections, Politics

One of the reasons I like reading Ed Morrissey at Hot Air so much is because of the excellent coverage he does on polls. He doesn’t just report the topline number of polls—he digs in and looks at the sample makeup to see what the D/R/I weighting is. That weighting means everything to the topline […]

FOX News produces Obama “then and now” video

Posted: June 6, 2012 at 1:15 pm   /   Elections, Videos

[FeaturedVideo]   Needless to say, many on the left are apoplectic about this: Reaction to the video was swift on Wednesday: The leftist Media Matters for America said the program “crossed a new ethical line today by producing and airing what is essentially a four-minute anti-Obama attack ad” and later put out a “debunking” post.

Following up from a post earlier today . . . The hits keep coming! The Bain strategy is not only not working, it may be backfiring. At least two more prominent Democrats are speaking out against the strategy, and on behalf of Bain Capital, and recent polls show Romney gaining support for his business experience, […]

Mitt Romney getting stronger on the stump

Posted: May 17, 2012 at 10:15 am   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

Okay, it’s not actually the stump, it’s an interview with Ed Morrissey of Hot Air. But in a way, this kind of interview is perfect for conservatives who are still a little cool on Romney, and I think it may help some to begin the process of warming up to him. This isn’t a two […]

Obama is weaker than is being reported

Posted: May 6, 2012 at 9:30 am   /   Elections, Politics

In the modern era, polls can be very accurate . . . IF the methodology used is solid. Analysts are watching pollsters very closely right now, and with good reason: There are shenanigans taking place. Usually, the problem involves polls oversampling Democrats. Pollsters have to estimate turnout based on previous elections, voter registration rolls, and other […]
