    • Failure to appeal to middle class doomed GOP ticket - 12 Nov 2012
      posted in Columns & Vote

      President Obama may have scored a narrow victory Tuesday night, barely winning 50 percent of the popular vote. Yet his squeaker of a triumph not only represents a bigger loss for the Party of Lincoln, but also offers a critically important lesson. Republicans and their standard bearer, Mitt Romney, were confident of consigning Obama to […]

    • Newt Gingrich to end presidential campaign - 26 Apr 2012
      posted in 2012 & Numbers & People & U.S.

      Submitting to fiscal and political reality, Newt Gingrich’s campaign announced Wednesday that he would soon end his presidential run, awash in debt and having won only two states. The former House speaker’s bid was unlike any in recent memory — part presidential campaign, part book-signing and movie-screening junket, and part tour of the nation’s zoos. […]

      “People walk up again and again and say, ‘Please stay in, and please fight for conservatism’,” Gingrich told the Post’s Karen Tumulty over the weekend. (Gingrich has never been one to hide his light under a bushel.) Rumors fly constantly — some cropped up late last week — that conservatives are attempting to broker a […]

    • Memo: Romney delegates counted too high - 09 Apr 2012
      posted in 2012 & Numbers & People & Politics & Govt

      Rick Santorum’s delegate count is much closer to front-runner Mitt Romney’s than reported, a memo prepared for a conservative campaign huddle in Virginia says. While most estimates show GOP presidential hopeful Romney with 657 or 658 delegates and Santorum with 273 to 281, “the real count” gives Romney 571 delegates and Santorum 342, the memo […]

      PEWAUKEE, Wis.—Rick Santorum faces a likely triple loss Tuesday night and a mounting sense among Republicans that the party’s drawn-out presidential nomination fight is all but over and that Mitt Romney will be their standard bearer. Mr. Santorum has pitched himself for months as the candidate best-suited for blue-collar states like Wisconsin, which holds its […]

      After Rick Santorum’s victories in Tuesday’s Alabama and Mississippi primaries, Mitt Romney told Fox News, “We’re not going to go to a brokered convention.” But those who put their money where their mouths are, buying contracts on the Intrade.com online prediction market, assess the picture much differently. The latest Intrade.com probability that the Republican nominee […]

      The super PAC which has spent millions in support of Rick Santorum came out Wednesday morning with a sharp admonition for Newt Gingrich: it’s time to drop out. “Based on his electoral performance last night and his out-of-step record, it is time for Newt Gingrich to exit the Republican nominating process,” Stuart Roy, a Red, […]

      BOSTON — The band at the Westin Copley played the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” as Mitt Romney supporters watched the results pour in: “I gotta feeling that tonight’s going to be a good night/That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night.” But at first it didn’t look like it was going to be […]

      Each candidate is cautiously predicting wins in certain Super Tuesday races. For Newt Gingrich, his past home state of Georgia is a must-win. Without a Georgia victory by the former House Speaker, he would be labeled a spoiler. Even with a Georgia win and little more, Gingrich may still be forced to exit the race. […]
