Former Speaker & the Face of Failed Republican Establishment Politics John Boehner Endorses John Kasich Ahead of GOP Ohio Primary

TALK ABOUT THE KISS OF POLITICAL DEATH, THE MOST WORTHLESS ENDORSEMENT EVER …

Former Republican Speaker of the House and all-around gutless wonder John Boehner has endorsed Gov. John Kasich ahead of this Tuesday’s Ohio winner take all primary. Who would want that endorsement, talk about the kiss of death. The crying man, John Boehner, is the face of failed Republican establishment politics. It is the failure of Boehner and his GOP establishment cronies in DC that gave rise the the Donald Trump wave. Why would anyone want his endorsement? At an event on Saturday in Butler County, OH to honor former Speaker John Boehner he stated, “I have no regrets about how I retired or when I retired. Every day I’m grateful I’m not there.” No former speaker, not half as grateful and thankful that we are that you are not there!

Republicans in Butler County honored former Speaker John Boehner three days before residents across Ohio’s 8th District will vote on his replacement in Congress.

But on Saturday, Boehner was more interested in talking about the presidential race.

One day before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to speak in West Chester, Boehner endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president.

In fact, the former speaker told a crowded ballroom in the same township he already voted for Kasich.

“He’s my friend,” said Boehner.

It was Boehner’s first public appearance in the area since he retired last year.

Fox News Poll: Gov. John Kasich Ahead of Trump in Ohio

WELL, IF YOU CAN’T WIN YOUR OWN STATE, WHAT CAN YOU WIN?

According to the most recent FOX News poll, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is leading in the polls for Ohio. The poll indicates that Kasich bests Trump among Buckeye Republicans by a 34 to 29 percent margin. Other polls have it for Trump. However, if Kasich wins Ohio and its delegates, it just pushes the can down the road that none in the GOP race will get the required delegates for the Republican nomination and Kasich will stay in the race. Honestly, if you can’t win your own state, why are you even running for the nomination? That means you to Marco.

Full poll results HERE.

Ohio Governor John Kasich bests Donald Trump among Buckeye Republicans by a 34 to 29 percent margin.  Ted Cruz is third with 19 percent.  Marco Rubio trails with just 7 percent.

That’s according to a new Fox News poll of Ohio likely Republican primary voters.  The governor’s edge is within the poll’s margin of sampling error.

Kasich is bolstered by positive evaluations of his job performance as governor.  He has a sky high 79 percent approval rating among the Ohio party faithful.

John Kasich leads Donald Trump by 5 points in Ohio.

Mr. Kasich led Mr. Trump by 1 point among men, but 10 points among women. He also led Mr. Trump by 5 points among evangelical Christians.

Mr. Kasich had a 79 percent approval rating among Republicans, compared to just 15 percent who disapproved.

Twenty-six percent of Ohio Republicans — and 39 percent of Kasich supporters — said they would refuse to support Mr. Trump against the Democratic nominee in November.

CNN/ORC Poll: Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton leading in Florida & Ohio Polls

SORRY RUBIO AND KASICH, IF YOU CAN’T WIN YOUR OWN HOME STATE, GET OUT!!!

According to a recent CNN poll Donald Trump is beating Rubio in Florida and Kasich in Ohio. In Ohio, Trump is ahead with 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%. And in Florida, Trump holds and even bigger lead with 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.

Donald Trump thumbs up

Donald Trump is leading two of his Republican presidential rivals in their home states, topping Sen. Marco Rubio in Florida and Gov. John Kasich in Ohio, new CNN/ORC polls show.

Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, is far ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in both states.

In Ohio, Trump holds 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%.

And in Florida, Trump holds 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.

The results come less than a week from the March 15 contests in Florida and Ohio, as well as Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri. The primaries in 99-delegate Florida and 66-delegate Ohio are particularly critical for Republicans, since both are winner-take-all.

In both states, large majorities say that if their home-state candidate doesn’t win, he should drop out: 71% say Kasich should exit if he loses Ohio, while 66% say Rubio should depart if he loses Florida.

Bernie Sanders Stuns Hillary Clinton and Wins Democrat Michigan Primary 50% – 48%

Hillary feels the Bern in Michigan …

In a stunning turn, or is the “bern” of events last night, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sander defeated Hillary Clinton in the Michigan Democrat primary, 50% to 48%.As the Politico opines, the outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states. Could Hillary Clinton really be in a dog fight the rest of the way with Sanders? Most likely Hillary will win, however, the longer this goes, the more contempt Sanders voters will have for the presumptive, establishment nominee and may not show up to vote in November.

Feel the Bern

This is truly an incredible defeat for Clinton and a motivating victory for Team Sanders as prior to the Michigan primaries, Clinton was leading in the polls by between 20 and 30 points. OUCH!!!

Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection

Bernie Sanders scored one of the biggest victories of his underdog campaign Tuesday by beating Hillary Clinton in Michigan, a delegate-rich state where she led by double digits in the closing days before voting.

The 2-point upset came after both candidates invested time and money in the state, and fuels the argument from Sanders’ camp that he should not be written off after Clinton’s earlier wins.

The outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states — counteracting a knock frequently leveled at him by Clinton allies that he has only performed well in largely white states.

“What tonight means is the Bernie Sanders campaign, the people’s revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution we have been talking about, is strong in every part of the country,” Sanders told reporters in Miami before the race was called. He predicted success in upcoming states, including in the West.

How on Earth is Clinton struggling to put a socialist away in the primary? With her loss in Michigan, could Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania be in play as well? Check out the  Democratic Primary Exit Poll Analysis:

Donald Trump Wins Big in GOP Nevada Caucuses … Trump Wins the Latino Vote

RUBIO AND CRUZ, HOPE WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS NEVADA, STAYS IN VEGAS NEVADA …

Last night Donald Trump easily won the Nevada caucus by more than doubling his second and third place opponents. This is the third straight victory for Trump as he previously won the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. A record turn out showed up for the Nevada caucuses. And it would seem that all demographics voted for Trump.  With 96% of the vote in Trump was dominating the race with 45.9%. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were in a narrow battle for second with Rubio at 23.9% and Cruz at 21.4%.

Donald Trump trounced his rivals in the Nevada caucuses on Tuesday, notching his third consecutive victory and giving the Manhattan mogul even more momentum heading into Super Tuesday next week, when voters in a dozen states will cast their ballots.

Trump’s decisive win, which the Associated Press announced immediately after polls closed, was propelled by an electorate even more enraged than the ones that had swept him to wins in New Hampshire and South Carolina, and a second-place showing in Iowa.

“We love Nevada. We love Nevada,” Trump declared in his victory speech. “You’re going to be proud of your president and you’re going to be even prouder of your country.”

In his post caucus victory speech Trump said, “We weren’t expected to win too much and now we’re winning, winning, winning the country. And soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.” Trump continued to say, “We won the evangelicals. We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” What might be even more astounding is that he won 44% of the Lationos that voted in Nevada. Unbelievable. More than both Cruz and Rubio who are of Latino origin.

Nevada Caucus Latino voters

Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in the delegate count; however, the focus turns to Super Tuesday, March 1 where 13 states will hold their primaries. But it appears that Trump holds the lead in 9 of the 13 states.

CNN/ORC Poll: Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders in a Vrtual Tie Ahead of Nevada Caucuses

HILLARY IN DEEP TROUBLE IN NEVADA …

According to a recent CNN poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie ahead of Saturday’s Nevada caucuses. Hillary Clinton’s Nevada firewall has crumbled.  The poll shows that 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, while 47% support Sanders. The state’s caucuses takes place on Saturday, February 20. Is it possible that Hillary could lose again to someone who was initially believed to be an also-ran? Just how weak a candidate is Hillary Clinton and what is going to happen to her campaign if, or should we say when, the FBI recommends charges for crimes related to her private email server?

Hillary_Bernie

Likely Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada are split almost evenly between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders ahead of Saturday’s caucuses, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

Though Clinton holds an edge over Sanders on handling a range of top issues, the results suggest the extremely close race hinges on divided opinions on the economy.

Overall, 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, 47% Sanders. Both candidates carry their demographic strong points from prior states into Nevada, with Clinton holding an edge among women, while Sanders tops the former secretary of state among voters under age 55.

How it breaks down in Nevada.

“Overall, Clinton holds broad advantages as more trusted on foreign policy, race relations, immigration and health care, but likely caucusgoers are split 48% for Clinton and 47% for Sanders on the economy,” CNN reported. “Among those likely caucusgoers who call the economy their top issue in choosing a candidate, more support Sanders: 52% back him vs. 43% for Clinton.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders Destroyed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 60% – 38% … So Why Are They Leaving the Granite State With a Similar Number of Delegates?

WHEN IS A 22 POINT WIN NOT A WIN … WHEN ITS DEMOCRAT POLITICS OF COURSE.

Self proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed the establishment, super pac candidate Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democrat primary Tuesday night by 22 points. At the end of the evening the vote count of the people of New Hampshire was Sander 60% and Clinton 38%. But get this, after the embarrassing butt kicking Clinton took at the hands of a 74 year old socialist, Hillary Clinton may actually come out ahead in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates. I guess this is what Bernie Sanders was talking about with regards the political process being rigged? Hey Bernie, instead of always whining about campaign money, you might want to look at how delegates are allocated in the Democrat party. Before the primary even began Hillary was ahead with delegates, Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose. And you wonder why the people hate the process. As Legal Insurrection opines … It’s how DEM-ocracy works.

Hillary Clinton_what

What Difference Does it Make if I lose by 22 points, I still win …

Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but she may come out of the state on top in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates.

Here’s why: New Hampshire has 24 Democratic delegates distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives.

According to the Associated Press, the Vermont senator earned at least 13 of the Democratic delegates with 60 percent of the vote in the Granite State. Because New Hampshire isn’t a winner-take-all state, Clinton won at least nine delegates with her 38 percent of the vote. A remaining two delegates have yet to be determined based on popular vote totals, according to AP.

But New Hampshire also has eight Democratic “superdelegates” — party insiders who aren’t bound by the popular vote outcome and can support any candidate they choose. Six of the superdelegates said before Tuesday night’s voting that they plan to support Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July.

That support isn’t binding, though — superdelegates can switch candidates between now and the convention.

Clinton’s Granite State superdelegates include New Hampshire Democratic lawmakers Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Annie Kuster, according to The Hill. One of the undecided superdelegates is Ray Buckley, chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who was barred by state party rules from selecting a candidate prior to the primary in an effort to maintain neutrality.
