Guess which candidate had 101 New Hampshire events but still has zero supporters?



Can you guess which candidate for President had 101 events in New Hampshires but is currently zero percent in the polls there, making it very possible he doesn't have a single supporter?

If you guessed former Governor Jim Gilmore of Virginia... you'd be wrong! Gilmore is at zero percent in the polls but has only had 42 events in New Hampshire.

No, the correct answer is George Pataki. Doesn't this guy know when to quit? I think after 50 events and still being at zero in the polls he'd take a hint, don't you?

But other candidates aren't doing much better. Rick Santorum has zero percent support but he only has done 17 events in New Hampshire. That's the first rational thing I can say about his behavior during this campaign, that he's not wasting time in New Hampshire.

Rand Paul has held 84 events but is only 3.5% in the polls. Not much return there.

Carly Fiorina has held a whopping 119 events but is only 4.5% in the polls. Does she expect to get to 9% if she does another 119 events, or does she somehow expect a logarithmic rate of return at some point soon?

Ben Carson has held "only" 32 events, which makes sense because he hasn't gotten much traction there.

John Kasich has held 108 events which also makes sense because he is at least making some gains in the polls there (9%).

Jeb! has held 71 events and is at 8%. That makes sense too. If Jeb doesn't do well in New Hampshire, he is done.

Chris Christie has done the most, 131 events, which makes sense since he's tied for third place in the polls with Ted Cruz (11%) and New Hampshire is the friendliest early state he can expect to find.

Ted Cruz has done "only" 39 events, which makes sense, as he should be focusing his efforts on more fertile ground in Iowa (where he is leading) and South Carolina, where he has more potential.

Marco Rubio has done "only" 44 events in New Hampshire. He should be doing much much more because he has little chance in Iowa, and his campaign has been branded weak and lazy.

GOP activists in New Hampshire are grumbling that Rubio has fewer staff members and endorsements than most of his main rivals and has made fewer campaign appearances in the state, where voters are accustomed to face-to-face contact with presidential contenders.

And Donald Trump has only had 26 events. But of course, he is leading in the polls there and his events are well attended.

The irony is that New Hampshire only matters for Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz is hunting for his trophy in Iowa. None of the other candidates have a national organization with which to capitalize on a victory in New Hampshire. Trump needs a victory there especially if he loses Iowa. Jeb and Marco need a victory there to have a victory anywhere.

But it's curious how some candidates waste so much time there when they obviously have no chance, and other candidates who should be focusing even more on New Hampshire seem to find better things to do with their time.

Why do candidates who can't win stay in the race?


Donald Trump thinks he can win the race for President. So does Ted Cruz. Maybe Marco Rubio thinks that too. And maybe even Ben Carson, though he doesn't have much grounds to anymore.
But what about all the other candidates, who are way, way down in the polls? At least Scott Walker and Bobby Jindal could see they weren't going anywhere and pulled out. But what about the others? It's no longer early in the political season where anyone at 3% had a chance. If you're at 3% nationally in the polls now, there is no chance you are going to be President. So what are they thinking?

Charting Ted Cruz's meteoric rise in the polls


Does anyone remember when Ted Cruz was fifth in the polls, behind Donald Trump, behind Ben Carson, behind Jeb Bush, and behind Marco Rubio? For a long time he hovered between fourth and fifth place in national polls, always behind Marco Rubio, hovering in high single digits, until just before Thanksgiving. Then he shot up into the teens where he was until last week, and now, if the latest poll is to be believed, he is at 24% nationally.

Does Trump need to attack Cruz to win?


Ted Cruz is surging. He's taken the lead in Iowa, according to multiple polls, has tied Trump in South Carolina in one poll, and in another poll is only four points behind nationally (although he still lags nationally in other polls). But if Cruz wins Iowa and South Carolina, he is extremely likely to win the nomination, if past history holds.

End of gay blood ban brings us closer to AIDS equality


The FDA announced that it was lifting the ban on homosexuals donating blood. The ban was put in place in 1983 because gays, by an extreme order of magnitude, were tremendously more likely to have AIDS than heterosexuals. That still hasn't changed, but what has changed is that society has become more politically correct.

Which early primary states best predict victory?


The other day when I wrote that Donald Trump was in big trouble in Iowa (because he is), many commenters said that it didn't matter because Iowa did not reliably predict the winner. So I decided to look into this. I looked at the history of contested Republican contests in 2012, 2008, 2000, and 1996, looking at the early states of Iowa (Feb 1), New Hampshire (Feb 9), South Carolina (Feb 20), and Nevada (Feb 23).
