Cruz and Trump benefit from establishment donors freeze

Jonathan Swan, The Hill

The New Hampshire primary has frozen GOP establishment donors. They’re not stampeding toward John Kasich or away from Jeb Bush. And they’re not flocking to Marco Rubio, who plummeted after a robotic debate performance. Instead, some of the Republican party’s wealthiest donors are either staying on the sidelines or sticking with their chosen candidate, with many hoping that South Carolina clarifies who they should support.

Cruz: ‘The Only Person in This Field Who Can Beat Donald Trump Is Me’

Memo to House Republicans: Ryan’s Agenda Will Help Trump and Cruz

Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.

Decisive Trump victory sends GOP establishment reeling

Byron York, Washington Examiner

According to exit polls, Trump won among men, and he won among women. He won all age groups. All income groups. Urban, suburban, rural. Every issue group. Gun owners and non-gun owners.

Did New Hampshire Knockout Christie and Kasich?

With the Republican nominating process moving on from two small states where a presidential candidate can conduct a retail campaign like he is running for county sheriff to a national multi-state stage, the perverse result of the New Hampshire Primary is that it likely spells the end of the line for the two candidates who worked the state the hardest – John Kasich and Chris Christie.

Donald Trump’s Disastrous Economic Observations

Now that the first votes are being cast it is time for Donald Trump to stop offering conspiracy theories, conflicting comments and disastrous suggestions about the economy and to come up with some real world plans that voters can sink their teeth into and that prove his much-vaunted business experience actually equips him to make policy for what is still, despite Obama’s best efforts to destroy it, the world’s largest economy.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: ABC Republican debate: The beginning of repetitious Rubio’s precipitous decline

Marco Rubio’s canned and thrice (at least) repeated response to Chris Christie’s attacks on his “25 second speech” will likely damage the Florida senator’s chances in New Hampshire and beyond. Plus,  ABC does a few things differently; Carly Fiorina was barred at the door, but will it end up helping her?; Get the ring ready, the establishment appears ready to propose; Cruz quietly makes his points, shores up conservative support; Trump doesn’t understand eminent domain but loves the police, and, In two more days, we’ll know.

In Celebration Of Ted Cruz’s Tough Tactics In Iowa

Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.
