What will it take for our elected officials to act?

A thoughtful piece on the implications of Paris for the GOP race:

Reader Poll for 2016...Does This Surprise You?

Who do a bunch of politically savvy readers think will secure the Democratic and Republican nominations in 2016, and who will win between them? it might surprise you, it might not....

Bernie Sanders has no fight in him; he'd rather be admired than win

If Bernie wants to win, he needs to take on Hillary. The "emails" comments are very telling. He does not appear to have it in him to go after Hillary the way he needs to if he really wants to win.

PPP Poll Has Hillary Easily Winning 2nd Dem Debate. And This is a Real Poll. Not an Internet Poll.

A Public Policy Polling survey of Democratic primary voters nationally who watched tonight’s debate finds that it reinforced Hillary Clinton’s front runner status. Viewers overwhelmingly think she won the debate, and particularly trust her over the rest of the Democratic field when it comes to issues of national security.

Key findings from the survey include:

-67% of voters think Clinton won the debate, to 20% for Bernie Sanders and 7% for Martin O’Malley. On a related note 63% of viewers said the debate gave them a more positive opinion of Clinton, compared to 41% who said it gave them a more positive opinion of Sanders, and 37% who said it gave them a more positive opinion of O’Malley.

-Clinton is by a wide margin the candidate debate watchers trust the most on national security issues. 75% say they have the most faith in Clinton on that front, compared to only 17% for Sanders, and 5% for O’Malley. National security issues were a primary focus tonight in the aftermath of yesterday’s tragedy in France, and Democratic voters by far and away trust Clinton the most on that issue.

-What’s particularly striking is how universal the sentiment that Clinton won the debate tonight is among all the different groups within the Democratic Party. 86% of African Americans, 73% of women, 70% of moderates, 69% of seniors, 67% of Hispanics, 65% of liberals, 61% of white voters, 58% of men, and 50% of younger voters all think that Clinton was the winner of tonight’s debate.

-Overall among those who watched the debate tonight, 67% say they plan to vote for Clinton in the primary to 25% for Sanders, and 4% for O’Malley.

Clinton came into tonight’s debate as the clear front runner for the Democrats and these numbers make it clear that the debate and particularly Clinton’s strength on national security issues just reinforced her front runner status.

PPP interviewed 510 Democratic primary voters nationally by telephone after the debate who had been pre-screened on Thursday and Friday as planning to watch the debate and willing to give their opinions about it afterward. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.3%. This research was conducted on behalf of Correct The Record.

The Second Democratic Debate: Saturday Night, No Fever

Hillary more than holds serve in a polite showdown....

GOP Debate: The Elephant in the Room

Is Marco Rubio the man?

Reader poll! Please respond!

Election Day 2016 is virtually a year away....

Can it be? Does Chris Christie have a chance?

The race for New Hampshire is the race for the establishment wing of the party, and Christie and Kasich are on the rise:

Not a bad place to be...on the rise in the one race that, if history holds (and who knows this year if it will or not), could determine who gets the nomination. Romney won in 2012, McCain in 2008.

Who Really Won the GOP Debate?

Pre-debate versus post-debate polling is in. OK, Cruz and Rubio did indeed do well, and Bush did badly. But there is other news as well.
