Hillary Hires Ex-Obama Aide In Bid for Youth Vote

Hillary Clinton won only 16% of voters under the age of 30 in New Hampshire.  That devastating result helps explain why she is now giving a key role in her campaign to 39-year-old Jen O’Malley Dillon, Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager in 2012.  Last year, O’Malley Dillon was also the lead U.S. Show More Summary

About Trump's Great Night

My column in Bloomberg: Even though everyone has expected for weeks that Donald Trump would win the New Hampshire primary, the scale of that win should unsettle both his rivals and the pundits.

Donald Trump Won a Triple Victory in New Hampshire

Yesterday I suggested that Donald Trump could win a double victory in New Hampshire. I was wrong. Tonight he won three clear victories. First and most obviously, he didn’t just win the popular vote, he more than doubled his closest competitor. Show More Summary

New Hampshire Is Trump Country

Check out the exit polls — the breadth and depth of the Trump victory is extraordinary. He won among just about every part of the electorate, no matter how you slice it. Maybe New Hampshire is uniquely suited to Trump (certainly the terrain is more favorable than Iowa), but he is not a force to be trifled with. Show More Summary

Trump, Sanders, and Kasich Do Well. Thanks a Lot, New Hampshire.

Could this night have gone worse for Donald Trump’s foes? Sure, he could have won with 90 percent or something. But this was about as bad a result as they could reasonably fear, and about as good a result as Trump and his fans could want. Trump’s first-place finish was easy to predict, and in line with most of the polling. Show More Summary

The usual ninnies are suffering a collective fainting spell over the fact that Crossroads GPS, an organization to which Karl Rove serves as an adviser, has been designated a nonprofit “social welfare” group by the IRS — after years and years of review. Show More Summary

As we await the New Hampshire returns, here are my key questions: 1. Can Donald Trump show that he’s more than Pat Buchanan with a casino?

If Sanders Wins, There Will Be Gold at the End of Every Rainbow and a Unicorn in Every Stable

A totally super-credible university economist has run the numbers. The Bernie Sanders plan will do wondrous things for the economy — truly wondrous. And this super-credible economist is so impressive that CNN chose to give his ”study” the mainstream media exposure it so obviously deserves: Median income would soar by more than $22,000.

A Mountain of Debt Best Describes Obama's Latest Budget

President Obama has introduced his latest budget. On the cover we are greeted by a picture of a large mountain. It is unusual and pretty but mostly it made me wonder whether — for once — the Obama administration was demonstrating tremendous self-awareness. Show More Summary

How Arizona Saved Itself from Illegal Immigration

Back in 2010, at the height of the rancorous debate over Arizona’s illegal-immigrant law, SB 1070, I wrote over on the homepage that the simple solution to the whole problem of illegal immigration is E-Verify. I argued that proponents of SB 1070, or for that matter, a border fence,  were barking up the wrong tree. Show More Summary

Marco Rubio's New Hampshire Nightmare Scenario

Bedford, N.H. — Marco Rubio might have a major problem on his hands heading into South Carolina: Jeb Bush. We don’t know which, if any, of the three governors — Bush, John Kasich, or Chris Christie — will capitalize on Rubio’s supposed last-minute slide and finish ahead of him tonight in New Hampshire.
