Republicans will hold 52-55 seats By Dave Andrusko As I write this post, there are 52 Republicans who will for certain be members of the United States Senate next year. Three races are undecided. Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, the pro-abortion senatorial candidate in Arizona, is leading Martha McSally, the pro-life Republican. Rick Scott, the pro-life senatorial …Continue reading "Results in three Senate seats yet to be decided"
By Dave Andrusko Picking up where we left off Tuesday, let’s see what more discerning questions tell us about who has not only been truly galvanized by events of the last couple of months to vote in the all-important November 6 mid-term elections but also may carry that intensity forward. Congrats to Scott Clement of …Continue reading "20 days to go. WaPo says Republicans increasingly motivated to vote November 6"
Ahead by 7 points after trailing by 16 points By Dave Andrusko Here’s our latest update on the shifting 2018 electoral fortunes of Democrats, who are almost entirely pro-abortion, and Republicans, almost all of whom are pro-life. Bearing in mind the important caveat that it’s only May, the most recent numbers are stunning. About an …Continue reading "In turnabout, Republicans assume lead in Generic Ballot over Democrats"
WASHINGTON – Led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), U.S. Senate Republicans today united to produce a historic victory for their party, the President, and the country — and a huge defeat for a coalition of left-wing groups, led by the abortion lobby, that had relentlessly pressured Democratic senators to filibuster the confirmation of Judge …Continue reading "National Right to Life: U.S. Senate Republicans unite to produce historic victory"
By Dave Andrusko As we discussed yesterday, Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee decided to boycott confirmation hearings for HHS Secretary Rep. Tom Price and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Earlier today, both were endorsed without a dissenting vote by the committee. A change of strategy on the part of petulant Democrats? Actually, no. According to …Continue reading "Price and Mnuchin approved by Senate Finance Committee minus any participation by Democrats"
By Dave Andrusko Drats, I can’t find it now. Someone recently made the unassailable argument that because pro-abortion favorite Hillary Clinton lost by such a tiny margin, those in the party who are in denial could list any of a dozen reasons to “explain” why a prohibitive, overflowing-with-money-and-organization candidate could lose to pro-life Donald Trump, …Continue reading "Pro-abortion Democrats double-down, miss how their embrace of PPFA/NARAL is costing them dearly"
By Dave Andrusko We posted earlier today about last night’s Iowa caucuses. I’d now like to add a few thoughts on the editorial the New York Times ran about Tuesday night’s highly competitive races, “Making Choices in Iowa.” I do so because it is symptomatic of the hoops through which defenders of the pro-abortion-to-the-core Democratic …Continue reading "The Iowa caucus results and the New York Times editorial page’s lament"
By Dave Andrusko Does it not say something hugely significant that pro-abortion Democrats Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders raise the ire of the Abortion Establishment for saying nary a word about abortion in a recent debate while pro-life Republicans continue to proudly, unabashedly, unswervingly make the case for life, as they did again in …Continue reading "Strong Pro-life affirmations the watchword in last Republican debate before Monday’s Iowa Caucuses"
By Dave Andrusko Whoever is your favorite pro-life Republican running to be the party’s presidential nominee, you had to be very, very pleased with what you heard last night. With that, let’s get right to five takeaways which, as always, could be ten or fifteen. #1. The viewing audience was absolutely massive. According to CNN …Continue reading "Five takeaways from the first GOP Presidential Debate"
By Dave Andrusko The constant temptation in covering political contests is to take one particularly egregious example and conclude that it is symbolic or representative of the whole. But sometimes—painful as it is to watch—a candidate’s behavior does distill a party’s larger problems. Enter Allison Lundergan-Grimes, the pro-abortion Democrat running against pro-life Republican Senator …Continue reading "Republicans enjoying “strong headwinds,” including a public grown weary of “war on women” nonsense"
By Dave Andrusko Some things ARE inevitable, one of which is that pollsters, especially those that work with media outlets, would eventually strike back at charges that many of their polls are severely skewed against Mitt Romney. The basic criticism of their methods—which we have talked about on many occasions at NRL News Today—is simple: …Continue reading "Pollsters defend methods that assume more Democrats than Republicans will vote in 2012"
By Dave Andrusko Be hard to have a better week than pro-life businessman Herman Cain is experiencing. Yesterday we talked about the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll which showed him surging into a tie with pro-life Texas Gov. Rick Perry for second place (16%), trailing only pro-life former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (25%). In addition, …Continue reading "Cain Surge Continues, Tied with Romney Among Republican Primary Voters"
