Barone: Romney Will Win 315 Electoral Votes

Michael Barone, the seasoned precinct-by-precinct analyst who has anchored Fox News election coverage for years, has made a bold prediction: not only will Mitt Romney win the presidency on Tuesday, he will win it in a landslide. Barone says that Romney will win Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, and Virginia, of course. But then he calls the following states for Romney:  Read more:

Romney proves his mettle as a candidate

By Christian Heinze – 10/30/12 07:35 PM ET


There’s very little that conservatives and the mainstream media can agree on, but in April of this year, they were united on one front — that Mitt Romney was a weak nominee whose political flaws were so numerous that it was only a question of how President Obama would destroy him.

But with less than a week until the election, Romney has again united conservatives and the mainstream media — this time, out of mutual surprise over just how good a candidate he’s proven to be.  More…

Romney ahead in four new national polls

Mitt Romney leads President Obama in four new national polls released Thursday, an indication of sustained momentum for the GOP challenger one week after his debate victory.

Romney leads by 3 percentage points in the latest Reuters-Ispsos and UPI-CVoter polls. He has 47 percent support compared Obama’s 44 percent in the former, and 49 percent to 46 percent lead in the latter. 

 Both of those polls are of likely voters, but Romney’s leads are within the margins of error.  More…

US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney questioned the feasibility of the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, according to video footage published Tuesday by US magazine Mother Jones.

“I’m torn by two perspectives in this regard,” Romney said at a $50,000-per-plate fundraising dinner on May 17. “One is the one which I’ve had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”  More…

REPUBLICAN presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he would replace Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke if he wins election to the White House in November.

Romney told Fox Business television that he wanted someone to lead the US central bank who is more in tune with his own economic thinking.

“I would like to select… a new person to that chairman’s position, someone who shared my economic views, someone that I thought was sympathetic to the needs of our nation,” Romney told the broadcaster in an interview.

“And I want to make sure that the Federal Reserve focuses on maintaining the monetary stability that leads to a strong dollar, and confidence that America is not going to go down the road that other nations have gone down to their peril.”  More…

Tea Party ‘Is Dead’: How the Movement Fizzled in 2012’s GOP Primaries

by Patricia Murphy Feb 6, 2012 4:45 AM EST

A giant killer in 2010, it never came off the sidelines in the 2012 primaries—and may end up with the nominee it loves least. Now a Tea Party leader tells Patricia Murphy the movement is “dead” and “gone.”

It was the great wildcard going into the 2012 election cycle. Republican Party insiders openly worried the Tea Party might knock off the establishment presidential candidate, just as it knocked out establishment picks in the chaotic 2010 congressional races. Party heavyweights wondered whom the upstart movement would get behind and whether Mitt Romney could even get through the early states, given the once-raging Tea Party elements in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.  More…

Fla. Vote Winners Are Latino Dignity & Self-Deportation


By Roy Beck, Tuesday, January 31, 2012, 10:33 PM EST – posted on NumbersUSA

Offered a stark choice on the illegal immigration issue, Florida Latino Republicans today broke nearly 2-1 for the candidate with the firmest opposition to amnesty and the strongest support for enforcement. 

It was a strong rebuke of the majority of media commentators who insist that Latino-Americans can only be won by promising rewards for lawbreaking. It added a sign of much greater dignity in the rule of law for the Latino population than most in the media are willing to give it.

And it was a victory for the concept of self-deportation as an alternative to mass deportation and mass legalization. 

Nobody can say that Floridians — both Latino and non-Latino — weren’t provided a clear choice on the immigration issue.  Immigration may not have been a top issue for most of the voters but it was one of the most publicized parts of the debates and contest.

  • Newt Gingrich campaigned hard among Latino voters with his continuing call for legalization and work permits for many illegal aliens and his pounding criticism of his opponent as “anti-immigrant” for opposing legalization.
  • Mitt Romney in two debates continued his campaign-long opposition to long-term work permits and legalization of illegal aliens and created a national media sensation by talking about “self-deportation” as the top goal for the illegal population.

Florida Republicans went strongly for Romney (46% to 32%), but the Latinos among them went for the anti-amnesty, pro-self-deportation candidate by an even greater margin.  More…

Is the Tea Party Losing Its Grip on the GOP?

By Erin McPike – January 30, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Newt Gingrich’s fast Florida fade is the latest indication that the Tea Party is losing its grip on the GOP, with the establishment poised to triumph once again.

An official endorsement Saturday night from last year’s Tea Party standout, Herman Cain; an all-but-official backing from longtime Tea Party darling Sarah Palin; and the support of an increasing number of Tea Party officials around the country have not lifted Gingrich back over Mitt Romney in the Florida polls. That weakened clout has been accompanied by the Republican establishment’s full-throttle charge at Gingrich’s past — to great effect with the primary here just one day away.

It’s a stunning twist of fate for the GOP, which just 18 months ago was mired in intraparty battles that gave rise to the grass-roots movement, and which had been desperately seeking anyone but Mitt Romney in the presidential race to satisfy its hard-right turn. Still, if Romney wins here on Tuesday and goes on to clinch the nomination in the coming weeks or months, it may not settle the question of whether he has quieted the Tea Party faithful heading toward the general election.  More…

Meet Kevin Jackson, the black Tea Party activist disgusted at the prejudices of Obama’s supporters

Kevin Jackson talks a lot of sense. He also says things that make you wonder if your ears are playing up. As the newest star of the Tea Party circuit gives you his views on Obama, Palin and David Cameron, you repeatedly ask yourself, ‘Did he just say what I think he said?’

I am interviewing Jackson, a Republican blogger and author of The Big Black Lie, a critique of liberal America, because I heard him on US television saying that voting for Obama was racist. ‘They wanted the black president,’ he told Fox News. ‘Racists that they are, they voted for the man because he’s black, not because he’s qualified.’  More…

The Best President Money Can Buy

If Americans continue to “settle” for the most electable candidate, they will have to continue settling for having a bankster’s hand in their pockets.

As the American housing bubble collapse and financial meltdown accelerated in the fall of 2008, the political ruling class and their bankster masters put together a plan to save themselves from the crisis they created. They decided to scare everyone silly by claiming the banksters were too important to “fail,” and to loot the middle class to refill their coffers.  More…

Will the Tea Party Swing the South Carolina Vote?

Rasmussen polling shows Mitt Romney leading in South Carolina, while Newt Gingrich is in second place and closing. It’s also interesting, however, to note the Republican candidates’ respective levels of support among Tea Party and non-Tea Party voters in what will be the first Republican-leaning state to host a 2012 GOP primary.  More…

150 social conservatives, activists vote to back Rick Santorum
By Bernie Becker

A group of conservative activists decided Saturday to throw its support behind Rick Santorum in the battle for the Republican presidential nomination.

Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council and a spokesman for the group of 150 activists, said that a “strong consensus” emerged for the former Pennsylvania senator after a three-ballot process.

Perkins said that Santorum got more than two-thirds support from the activists in the final ballot, in which he faced off against former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas also received considerable support from the group, Perkins added.  Read the story here.
