 Fox News: Trump wins, Kasich takes 2nd in GOP New Hampshire primary.

Donald Trump is the winner in the New Hampshire Republican primary and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will take second place, Fox News projects.

The battle for third, though, remains a fierce contest among three candidates – Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

It is too early to project how those three will finish, though Rubio is trailing that group in early returns.

UPDATE I: Trump wins New Hampshire with help from Independents, late deciders.

Independent voters propelled Donald Trump to victory Tuesday night in the New Hampshire Republican primary, according to exit polls.

He and Kasich each got 21 percent of the late-deciders, compared to 13 percent each for Bush and Rubio, the exit polls show.

REALLY DONALD? Woman at Rally Calls Cruz A “Pussy” And Then Donald Trump Repeated It Onstage (VIDEO)

UNBELIEVABLE, HEY DONALD, I ACTUALLY LIKE MY PARTY NOMINEES WITH AN OUNCE OF CLASS AND WITHOUT A TRASH MOUTH …

One of the reasons why Donald Trump has skyrocketed into the lead in the GOP presidential primaries is his willingness and ability to say anything at any given moment. Of course when one is a billionaire one probably can get away with such things more often than not. However, there is a limit. At a recent rally in New Hampshire as The Donald was telling a story, a woman from the crowd shouted out that Ted Cruz was a pussy. In a faux gesture of admonishment Trump pretended to scold the woman. Of course that was before he asked her to shout it again and before Trump repeated what the a woman said calling Ted Cruz a “pussy”.

“Shout it out because I don’t want to — OK, you’re not allowed to say, and I never expect to hear that from you again. She said — I never expect to hear that from you again! — she said he’s a pussy. That’s terrible.”

You know folks, enough. I have come to the realization that Trump does not have the class or demeanor to be President of the United States. Enough is enough where this man thinks he can just say anything, even if its completely inappropriate. YOU ARE NO RONALD REAGAN. It is one thing to speak you mind when it comes to policy or going against the main stream Democrat propaganda media complex or the PC police. It is quite another to pretend like you have an ounce of class. These actions are nothing more than low rent acts of bullying and pandering the the lowest realms of societal behavior. Sorry, this is not how any president should act. So sorry if I don’t find Howard Stern humor funny in my politics in voting for my party’s nominee. Folks, stop making excuses for this clown, you would not be doing so if he was running for the Democrat presidential nominee.

Poll Conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC Shows Rubio Falling to 4th

THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...

As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.

An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.

The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.

Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.

Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.

7News/UMass Lowell New Hampshire Tracking Poll Shows Trump Ahead for GOP and Sanders for Democrats

QUESTIONS LEADING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY … WILL HILLARY FEEL THE “BERN” AND WILL TRUMP REALLY WILL BY SUCH A WIDE MARGIN?

According to the 7 News/UMass Lowell NH tracking poll, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have bog leads heading into next Tuesday’s, February 9, 2016 New Hampshire Presidential primary. Self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton by double digits, 55% to 41%. The question becomes, will Sanders actually destroy the establishment presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary be such a wide margin Tuesday night? Will a socialist hand Hillary Clinton her lunch? According to the RCP average polling, the above tracking poll is pretty much in line. It would appear that the 74 year old socialist is poised to win a 14 to 15 percent victory over the Clinton machine in New Hampshire.

NH Tracking Poll_UMASS Lowell

Our tracking poll shows both races settling down. Bernie Sanders is now beating Hillary Clinton 55 percent to 41 percent, his support holding steady. Clinton gained a point overnight, edging slightly closer. The tracking poll shows Clinton is still gaining on Sanders, but the pace of her rise has slowed and Sanders leveled off after three days of big drops.

“There’s a big gender gap in the Democratic race,” said Dr. Joshua Dyck, UMass Lowell pollster. “Sanders leads by more than 30 percent among men, but just 2% among women. A big change from earlier this week.”

As for the Republican party, Trump appears to have a commanding lead at 35% following by a pack of 4 individuals from 14% to 10% that include, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and John Kasich. However, one has to wonder if Rubio’s poor performance in last nights debate and strong performances by governors Christie and Bush might cause some last minute movement by the electorate? It’s hard to believe that Bush and Kasich have actually gained points but NH has become increasingly liberal these days. The real question heading into the NH Primaries is, will Trump over or under perform his polling, who will come in second and third and will Rubio’s terrible debate performance cost him and stop any momentum he might have had?

Among the Republicans, Donald Trump stays number one, with 35 percent; and picked up a point. Marco Rubio, at 14 percent, lost a point, but keeps second place. Ted Cruz, at 13 percent, also lost a point, but did not lose third place. The biggest GOP changes: John Kasich and Jeb Bush. Both have broken into double digits after both picked up two points overnight.

There were also some changes in the bottom tier. Chris Christie is at four percent, after losing a point since Friday.  Ben Carson, three percent after losing one. And no change for Carly Fiorina, who also gets three percent.

GOP New Hamphire Debate 2/6/16: OUCH, Gov. Christie Destroys Sen. Rubio on Lack of Leadership Comparing to Obama … “Do not make the same mistake” (VIDEO)

NEW JERSEY GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE DESTROYED MARCO RUBIO LAST NIGHT ON LACK OF LEADERSHIP …

During last nights debate on ABC News ahead of Monday’s 2016 New Hampshire primaries, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a once man wrecking crew and laid waste to the new found darling establishment candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio. Christie lambasted Rubio on being ill prepared to be president of the United States. Christie stated that being a Senator does not prepare one to be president, whereas when one is a governor, they need to make decisions that impact the people who elected them and are held accountable for those decisions.

Rubio_Christie debate 020616

Check out the look Rubio gave Christie during this exchange

Things got started when Rubio was asked to respond to Christie’s allegation that, after experiencing the presidency of Barack Obama, who was elected as a first-term U.S. senator, it would be especially unfortunate if the Republican Party were itself to nominate Marco Rubio, a first term U.S. senator, for the White House. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” Christie had said (bettering his former benefactor, George).

Rubio’s comeback was pretty good, if a little obvious in its intent: He argued that experience was overrated; if it mattered, Vice President Joe Biden would be a good candidate for commander-in-chief. He then argued that an unspoken premise of the criticism — that Obama has failed in part due to his inexperience — is faulty. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing, Rubio said. The president is not a fool; he’s a menace.

Christie wasn’t having it, dismissing Rubio’s Biden straw man and recommitting to his initial attack. Rubio’s a nice guy, a smart guy, Christie said; but the simple fact is that he’s never had to make an important decision. This got a noticeable round of applause from the audience. And perhaps that’s why Rubio then proceeded to self-destruct.

 

Christie stated with regards to Rubio, “you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable, you just simply haven’t.” Christie followed up with, “the fact is, when you talk about the Hezbollah sanctions act that you list as one of your accomplishments, you weren’t even there to vote for it.” Then Christie crushed Rubio with the fact that he didn’t even show to vote with … “that’s not leadership, that’s truancy”.

Christie then did the most damning thing he could do to Rubio, compared the Florida senator to the 1st term 2008 Sen. Barack Obama and his lack of experience for the job and what that has gotten us. Christie provided the following backhanded compliment, “I like Marco Rubio and he’s a smart person and a good guy. But he simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States and make these decisions. We have watched it happen everybody for the last 7 years. The people of New Hampshire are smart, do not make the same mistake again.” OUCH!!!

Mike Huckabee Suspends His 2016 Campaign for the Republican Nomination and Calls it Quits

ONE OUT AFTER IOWA CAUCUS, IS THERE MORE TO COME …

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has suspended his presidential campaign to be president. Following a poor showing in the Iowa Caucus and a campaign that just never got off the ground. Huckabee managed to only get 2% of the vote. One has to wonder who else is next? All of the candidates that finished below 5% in Iowa might want to think about throwing in the towel.

Iowa Caucus GOP3

Mike Huckabee suspended his bid for the Republican nomination, ending a second run that overshadowed by other candidates in the former Arkansas governor’s social-conservative lane.

Huckabee’s announcement concludes a campaign that was not nearly as prominent as his previous run at the Republican nomination in 2008, where he won eight states, including the Iowa caucus.

In 2016, Huckabee struggled to consistently stay on the main stage in Republican presidential debates, never raised more than $15 million at one time, and failed to rally the same evangelical support he won in his last presidential run. One of the most conspicuous blows to his campaign came when Bob Vander Plaats endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, denying Huckabee a critical ally in the contest to win over Iowa’s evangelicals.

GOP Iowa Caucuses: Cruz, Trump and Rubio in a 3-Person Race (Update: Ted Cruz Declared Winner in Iowa)

IOWA CAUCUS 2016: All night long its been nip and tuck between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the GOP Iowa Caucus. Finally, the race has been called by FOX News … Sen. Ted Cruz has been declared the winner in Iowa!!! ABC News is calling the race as well.

Ted Cruz is the winner of the Iowa Republican caucuses, Fox News projects, beating front-runner Donald Trump in a victory that could shake up the primary race.

Trump finishes second, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finishes a close third.

Iowa Caucus GOP

There was a record turn out tonight in Iowa and many thought had that occurred, Donald Trump would win the Iowa Caucus going away. Guess what, the pundits were incorrect again.

Iowa Caucus GOP2

Cruz beats Trump in Iowa; Rubio comes in a strong third.

Supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas delivered a hard-fought upset win over businessman Donald Trump in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night, making good on his bet that a methodical campaign organization would eclipse the New Yorker’s media dominance in the first test of GOP voters.

With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Cruz was besting Trump by more than 5,100 votes, with fellow senator Marco Rubio of Florida a close third. Cruz appeared to capitalize on deep support from religious and social conservatives and showed that old-fashioned retail politicking could overcome Trump’s massive political rallies in the Hawkeye state.
