Donald Trump Takes Lead in Iowa, Ted Cruz Now in Second Place, Ben Carson Slips to Third


As reported at CBS News, Donald Trump has returned to the top spot in Iowa at 30%. Surprisingly, Conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) has surged into second place with 21% and thanks to the racist and bias MSM, Ben Carson has slipped to third place with 19%. According to the polls, since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground, while Ben Carson has lost ground, among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. However, what is still trending is that all 3 candidates are considered non-establishment GOP political outsiders.

Make no mistake about it, the liberal MSM has performed a hit on Ben Carson as the Democrat media complex and Democratic party cannot afford to have Ben Carson as the GOP presidential candidate. It would forever destroy the Democrat talking point that the GOP is racist. Once again just showing the media bias that exists, because had the media gone after and questioned Barack Obama even 25% of how they have gone after Carson, Obama would never have been elected in 2008.

Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third.

While Iowa’s Republicans generally feel Trump is ready to be commander-in-chief, Cruz scores even better on this measure, boosted by support from very conservative and Tea Party Iowans who feel he is ready to assume the post. That’s more than say so about Trump, Carson, Rubio and Jeb Bush.

Since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground — and Ben Carson has lost ground — among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. And while Trump still leads among some of these groups, it’s Cruz who is ahead among the very conservative, and Trump leads Cruz by just two points among evangelical voters.

Cruz’s move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched.

Republican Matt Bevin Wins Kentucky Governor’s Race in Blue Grass State … Defeat Democrat Jack Conway, 53% to 44%


Yes, yesterday was election day and in the Blue Grass state it was Republican Matt Bevin who was the easy winner for the Kentucky’s governorship over Democrat Jack Conway, 53% to 44%. What is almost impossible to believe is that Bevin will only be the second Republican to be governor of Kentucky in more than four decades. It was a big night for the GOP in Kentucky as they picked up four of the six independently elected statewide positions despite going into Tuesday with just one GOP officeholder. What was remarkable is that polls had this race dead even going into election day.

Matt Bevin

Republican Matt Bevin easily won Kentucky’s governorship on Tuesday as the GOP made major inroads in a state that had stubbornly resisted the party at the state level even as it voted reliably Republican in federal contests in recent years.

Bevin, a self-funding investment manager, rode a late surge of outside support from national Republicans to defeat Democrat Jack Conway, 53 percent to 44 percent, according to The Associated Press. Bevin will become just the second Republican to inhabit the governor’s mansion in Frankfort in more than four decades.

Polls prior to the vote showed a close race, with most surveys giving Conway, the state’s sitting attorney general, a slight advantage.

Bevin’s victory capped a successful night for Republicans, who picked up four of the six independently elected statewide positions despite going into Tuesday with just one GOP officeholder. Their victories included ousting state Auditor Adam Edelen, who was thought to be Democrats’ top pick to challenge GOP Sen. Rand Paul next year.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Political Outsider Ben Carson Surges Into the Lead of National GOP Race with 29%


According to a NBC/WSJ poll, the ultimate outsider and anti-establishment presidential candidate Ben Carson has surged into the lead with 29%, followed by Donald Trump at 23%, Marco Rubio at 11% Ted Cruz at 10% and Jeb Bush at 8%. Also, Carson polls at 50% as to who Republican voters select as their first or second choice. It is becoming apparent in many polls that Carson is trending to be the front-runner for the GOP. Even though, most national polls have shown Trump comfortably ahead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination since July, Carson has recently made strong strides in Iowa polls and some national ones. Also, according to the Politico, Carson is making huge strides in campaign fundraising.

However, how long will it be before the Democrat media complex begin their assault on Carson? Something the liberal MSM never did with Barack Obama when he ran in 2008 or 2012. And will they be called racist for attacking him as many were when they criticized Obama’s policies and liberal agenda?

Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

That’s the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.

Carson’s 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.

GOP Presidential Debate: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Fires Back at CNBC Moderator John Harwood: “Do You Want Me To Answer Or Do You Want To Answer?”… “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”

CNBC Moderators show they are a complete disgrace again at last nights GOP Presidential Debate in Boulder, CO …

Who would have ever thought a NBC business channel in CNBC would have ever acted worse than MSNBC?

How bad are moderators when a New Jersian says that what they are doing and how they are conducting themselves would be called rude in New Jersey? But that was the tenor, mood and theme of last nights GOP debate as the liberal and bias CNBC moderators were more interested in listening to themselves talk, insult the candidates and just be down right nasty. Its one thing for a moderator is ask tough questions, but what CNBC did last night was over the top. You could actually feel the venom and contempt that the moderators had for the Republican candidates.

“John, do you want me to answer or do you want to answer?” Christie asked the reporter at Wednesday’s Republican primary debate. “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”

Note to RNC, why exactly did you schedule this debate? And if you ever allow another one on this Democrat, liberal propaganda new channel, some one need to be fired.

Senator Ted Cruz Rips CNBC Liberal, Bias, Agenda Driven Moderators at GOP Presidential Debate (VIDEO) … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”

The question is now settled science … the MSM is completely bias and in the tank for the Democrat party.

At last nights GOP Presidential Debate on CNBC, Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped the liberal CNBC moderators and exposed them for the liberal, bias, Leftist, agenda driven, in the tank Democrat party propagandists that they are. From the very outset of the debate, the moderators began their snarky gotcha questions and seemed more inclined to insult the candidates and start a food fight than to actually have the American public hear how any of the candidates would handle certain situations and what their economic policies were.


Finally, Ted Cruz ripped the moderators a new one and let them have it … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”

 ”The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than any participant in the Democratic debate,”


From Real Clear Politics:

At the Republican debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado Wednesday night, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted the moderators, particularly John Harwood of The New York Times, and the media for their treatment and characterization of himself and his competitors.

“The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz at Wednesday’s Republican debate. “Everyone home tonight knows that the moderators have no intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

Cruz later went tete-a-tete with Harwood, a CNBC contributor, for cutting him off and wanting to move on.

“Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government shutdown, and calm financial markets of the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?” CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla asked the presidential candidate.

“Let me say something at the outset,” the Senator from Texas said. “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”

“This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions — Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues,” Cruz said to commanding applause from the audience.

Mark Levin on Boehner Budget Deal: Do you Want a Government Shutdown or a Country Shutdown?

Conservative Talk Show host Mark Levin is 100% correct regarding the phony political Conservative Republicans and those who defend them.

Take a good listen to Mark Levin via The Right Scoop.  Levin calls it like it is as We the People get screwed by the GOP leadership as they sell us down the river and continually lie to our faces. I have to wonder at this point, what does the Republican party stand for anymore? We could get this type of government from Nancy Pelosi, as Boehner cut a deal with the White House on a budget deal by completely circumventing the political process.

I am sick and tired of pretend Conservatives defending  John Boehner and Mitch McConnell when they are selling this country down the river. And that is exactly what they do. What does the republican party stand for?

Speaker Boehner, a GOP Judas to the End … “Obama Wins on Budget Deal as John Boehner Cleans Out the Barn.”


If you ever wonder why Republican Speaker of the House was forced to resign once needs to look no further than the most recent budget deal that Boehner secretly negotiated with Obama, outside the process. Once again, Obama took this crying fool Boehner to the cleaners as Boehner manages one last parting shot to GOP Conservatives. It is a budget bill that will be voted on in the House and is expected to pass, not with a GOP majority, but Democrat. It kind of makes you wonder exactly whose side Boehner is really on? As I said when I called and email my Congressman, if you vote for this bill or if it passes, what is the point of having a GOP majority in the House and if or when this does pass, you have lost my vote and you do not deserve to have the majority. We could get this kind of crap with Nancy Pelsosi as Speaker. Powerline points out just how pathetic and bad this spending bill truly is.


The budget agreement struck late Monday between the White House and Congress hands President Obama a clear victory, vindicating his hard line this year against spending limits that he argued were a drag on the economy and buying him freedom for the final 14 months of his term from the fiscal dysfunction that has plagued his presidency.

The deal is the policy equivalent of keeping the lights on — hardly the stuff of a bold fiscal legacy. But it achieves the main objective of his 2016 budget: to break free of the spending shackles he agreed to when he signed the Budget Control Act of 2011, an outcome, the president allowed Tuesday, that he could be “pretty happy” about.

For this fiscal year alone, the deal would add $50 billion in spending, divided equally between defense and domestic programs, as well as $16 billion for emergency war spending, half for the military, half for the State Department. Together, that represents an increase of $66 billion above the spending limits for 2016, not far off the $70 billion increase Mr. Obama requested.

From the moment he introduced his budget Feb. 2, Mr. Obama held firm on his demand that Congress break through the punishing across-the-board cuts known as sequestration in the Budget Control Act to provide equal increases to domestic and military spending. He promised to veto any spending bill that adhered to the statutory spending caps, made good on that threat this month by vetoing a popular defense policy bill, enlisted the support of congressional Democrats with whom his White House had sometimes sparred on budget matters, and capitalized on Republican divisions to get his way.

The result was a deal that would raise spending $80 billion, or about 1 percent, over the next two years while enacting an array of cuts that Democrats found palatable. The deal also would suspend the statutory debt limit — on track to be breached on Tuesday without action from Congress — until March 2017, beyond his presidency. It also contains a provision Ms. Pelosi had pressed for to avert large Medicare premium increases for some beneficiaries.

The budget deal faces last-minute protest by Republicans, but in the end it will probably make no difference because it is the Democrats that are going to supply the necessary vote to pass this Boehner bill. Cry me a river you Judas, Boehner cannot leave office fast enough. This SOB sold out his party, his principles and the People.

House Republicans are facing a last-minute uprising against Speaker John Boehner’s budget deal, as dozens of GOP lawmakers are telling leadership they might vote against the package because of changes to crop insurance programs, and other concerns.

Senior GOP lawmakers estimate that between 60 and 120 Republicans will vote for the package as is, leaving Democrats to supply the vast majority of votes, though the vote count is fluid at this time. Aides in both parties expect the bill to pass, but the number of GOP defections is a notable rebuke to Boehner and other top Republicans.

Ben Carson Surging in National Polls … CBS News/New York Times Poll Has Carson Ahead of Trump, 26% to 22%


It would appear that political outsider and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson has the political momentum in the polls. According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Carson now leads Donald Trump, 26% to 22%. Sure its early and there is a long way to go, but this is significant. It is the first time that Carson leads Trump in a national poll. Earlier this month, Carson took the lead over Trump in Iowa in three significant polls, the Des Moines Register-Bloomberg poll, a Quinnipiac University survey and a Monmouth University poll.

Ben Carson has surpassed Donald Trump and now narrowly leads the Republican field in the race for the nomination in the latest national CBS News/New York Times Poll.

Twenty-six percent of Republican primary voters back Carson, giving him a four-point edge over Trump (22 percent). Support for Carson has quadrupled since August.

The rest of the Republican presidential candidates lag far behind in single digits. Marco Rubio is now in third place (eight percent), followed by Jeb Bush (seven percent) and Carly Fiorina (seven percent). All other candidates are at four percent or lower.

Carson has made gains across many key Republican groups. In a reversal from earlier this month, he is now ahead of Trump among women and is running neck and neck with him among men. Carson’s support among evangelicals has risen and he now leads Trump by more than 20 points with this group.

Carson performs well among conservative Republicans and those who identify as Tea partiers. Trump does well with moderates and leads Carson among those without a college degree – although Trump had a larger advantage with non-college graduates earlier this month.

New York Times: Ben Carson Edges Ahead Nationally in Times/CBS News Poll.

Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign, dislodging Donald J. Trump from the top spot for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released on Tuesday.

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is the choice of 26 percent of Republican primary voters, the poll found, while Mr. Trump now wins support from 22 percent, although the difference lies within the margin of sampling error.

The survey is the first time that Mr. Trump has not led all candidates since The Times and CBS News began measuring presidential preferences at the end of July.

Monmouth University Poll: Ben Carson Takes 14 Point Lead Over Donald Trump in Iowa

With just a couple days ahead of the next Republican primary presidential debate, Ben Carson has surged into the lead in Iowa.

According to a recent Monmouth University poll, Ben Carson has taken a commanding 14 point lead over The Donald in Iowa. Carson is currently in first place at 32%  followed by Trump at 18%. This is quite a turnaround from previous Monmouth polls. Carson is ahead among all demographic groups in Iowa, including Republicans who describe themselves as “somewhat” and “very conservative,” as well as self-described moderates, evangelicals, non-evangelicals, men and women. There appears to be a swing in Iowa as this is now the third poll showing Carson ahead in Iowa. Earlier, a Des Moines Register-Bloomberg poll released last week showed Carson with a 9 point lead, and a Quinnipiac University survey found Carson ahead by 8.

Dr Ben Carson

Ben Carson has overtaken Donald Trump in Iowa, surging to a 14-point lead, according to a new poll.

A Monmouth University survey released on Monday found Carson taking 32 percent support in Iowa, followed by Trump at 18 percent.

That’s a 9-point gain for Carson from the same poll in late August, while Trump has fallen five points in that time.

The poll found Carson with the best favorability rating in the field, with an astounding 84 percent of Iowa Republicans having a positive view of him, compared to only 7 percent who view him negatively.

Imagine, just imagine if Ben Carson won the GOP nomination and became president. Talk about the worst nightmare for Democrats, liberals and the MSM, how could they continue the myth and lie that Republicans are racist?
