Trump’s Achilles Heel

Trump’s Achilles Heel Trump’s Achilles Heel is real.   It’s true that Trump has dominated news cycles for months and it’s true that he has led, and now continues to lead, the 2016 Republican presidential polls substantially.  He has shown both courage and strength.  He has thrilled crowds with his tough talk.  He has been able to say things that nearly no one else would dare say.  Plus, he has taken on the media.  Trump sometimes looks invincible.  But, if you look more closely, Trump has an Achilles heel.  Let’s discuss it next … What are Voters Seeking This Year? Voters…

National Book Tour for Great News for America

National Book Tour Update – Due to some unforeseen circumstances, including a server that went down, the Press Release has been delayed until probably mid-day Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 13th.

Will the 2016 Presidential Election be Historic and Critical?

Hold on to your hats!  This is going to be an incredible presidential election.  It will probably be both historic (like few other presidential elections) and critical (because there will be political party and political institution realignments taking place).  Let’s discuss why the 2016 presidential election will be both historic and critical now … Why is the 2016 Presidential Election Historic? First and foremost, American voters are angry, frustrated and upset with the political parties and “establishment” politicians because they have largely ignored voters and their demands to solve many issues facing America.  Americans are tired of sending people back…

Republican Presidential Race – What Happens Next?

Lindsey Graham has now decided to suspend his campaign for the Republican nomination.  Scott Walker, Rick Perry and Bobby Jindal suspended earlier.  As we approach January and then the important Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire primary, South Carolina primary, and Nevada caucuses, what’s next in the Republican presidential race?  The Republican contest started with 17 candidates, it’s now down to about a dozen.  We know Trump consistently leads nationally.  We know Cruz has moved ahead in Iowa with his grassroots, analytics based campaign.  We know Christie has recently moved up in New Hampshire.  Where do we stand?  Who will drop out next? …

Who Won Last Night’s Republican Presidential Debate?

At times it was really a bit heated on Tuesday night in Las Vegas.  As we fast approach the Iowa caucuses, there was more pressure on the Republican presidential candidates to try to boost their poll numbers in front of a national audience.  There were squabbles and stressed expressions and a few light-hearted moments.  But, who were the winners?  Will Trump maintain his sizable, national lead in the polls?  Will Cruz continue on top in Iowa?  Will Carson stop his decline?  Plus, who won the Cruz – Rubio battle for #2 spot?  Did Bush improve his numbers?  Here’s are my thoughts…

Will Cruz Now Cruise to the Republican Nomination?

The latest Monmouth University poll was released on Monday and Cruz now is in the #1 spot in Iowa.  Importantly, Carson dropped 19% since the last Monmouth University poll in which Carson was in the #1 spot.  That, of course, seems to trace back to voters perceiving Carson as weak on global terrorism.  Carson voters appear to have largely moved to Cruz.  Now, we are about eight weeks from the Iowa caucuses and about nine weeks from the New Hampshire primary.  Cruz appears to be gaining momentum, not only in Iowa, but also nationally.  Will Cruz now cruise to the Republican nomination?  Let’s discuss the Republican…

Should We Expect an Uncivil, “Civil War of Words” in the Republican Party Next?

As we rapidly approach the Republican presidential caucuses and primaries in about two months, should we expect to see an uncivil, “civil war of words?”  It’s true that Trump and Cruz appear to be methodically moving ahead in the presidential nomination race.  Please see my blog post from last week for more details on Trump and Cruz.  If that continues to turn out true, no “establishment” Republican candidate will be nominated by the Republican Party.  It’s reasonable to expect that Republicans and the mainstream media will not rollover and give up.  Starting very soon, we can expect to see an…

Is the Republican Presidential Race Now Down to Just 2 Candidates – Trump and Cruz?

For the last few weeks, the Republican presidential nomination race has been effectively narrowed down to four candidates: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.  With the terrible Paris attacks and the candidates reaction to those attacks, the polls have moved dramatically.  Trump has solidified his significant lead and the #1 spot.  Carson’s support has dropped precipitously in some places.  Rubio and Cruz have moved upwards.  But, even more importantly, we might now be able to predict who the final two candidates will probably be.  Of course, in a dynamic race, with global events taking place all around us, things could change…
