Donald Trump Is a Joke. But His Popularity Among Women Is No Laughing Matter.

By almost all accounts, 2012 was the year of the woman, as, female voters opted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney 56-44. For a while there, all we seemed to be talking about was the way in which women would not be talked down to again. A...Show More Summary

Republicans and Hispanics

In a post the other day, I debunked the claim that Romney would have been elected president if only he had won an additional 10 percent of Hispanic voters. Romney was too far down in swing states, and there were too few Hispanics there, for that to have changed the outcome. Show More Summary

Why the Democrats need Joe Biden

Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly "leaning" in favor of running for president. He is certainly sending out a lot of feelers, talking to backers and doing what you'd do if you wanted to run. (But then, so did Mitt Romney, before reconsidering.)

China bashing: American campaign ritual or harbinger of tougher policy?

China-bashing in the 2016 presidential election has begun in earnest. In past campaigns, many of the attacks on China were forgotten as candidates dropped out of the race or were defeated. In 2012, for example, Mitt Romney pledged to declare China a currency manipulator on his first day in office. Show More Summary

Mitt, sorry, but please don’t run. But, if he could whittle down the GOP challengers with rhetoric from the sideline, that may be beneficial.

In the course of a spirited denunciation of Donald Trump, George Will writes, “ Romney, who advocated making illegal immigrants’ lives so unpleasant they would ’self-deport,’ might be president if he had received ten points more than his 27 percent of the Hispanic vote.” A lot of people have made similar claims.
