Join Jim and Greg as they welcome evaluations showing the GOP likely to gain seats – and a House majority – thanks to redistricting. They also frown as former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo won’t face any charges for his COVID nursing home cover-up or his harassment of women. And they shudder at the 24-hour-plus nightmare for travelers on I-95 in Virginia, wondering why Gov. Ralph Northam didn’t take decisive action sooner and why so many people are blaming Glenn Youngkin, who won’t be governor until next week.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome research from a left-leaning firm showing that a growing number of Latino voters are very concerned that Democrats are embracing socialism and other far-left positions – and it is translating into more Latino support for Republicans. They also sigh as President Biden yet again claims there was no better way to withdraw from Afghanistan. And Jim is briefly left speechless as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the Congressional Budget Office score of the latest massive spending bill is “fake.”

Canada’s Conservative Party Leader Ran Hard to the Middle and Failed to Win Seats in Parliament. Why?  It is challenging to draw parallels between politics in Canada versus the United States. There are some significant differences between us. Canadians, in particular, are more trusting of their government and more compliant with diktats. But parallels exist. […]

Jim and Greg applaud Senate Republicans for standing strong and voting against the partisan election reform bill offered by Democrats. They also blast China for forcing the last remaining pro-democracy newspaper in Hong Kong to close its doors. Finally, they sigh at the news that it will take at least a week or longer to find out who won the Democratic primary for mayor of New York City.

Well, we see the predictable rollout of the Democrat message re: Anniversary of Death of George Floyd – will tomorrow start the GOP’s rollout of The Anniversary of the Riots of 2020? The coordinated messaging on the complicit Dem leaders in those communities ravaged by these riots? The soft encouragement from many Democrat officeholders and […]

Jim and Greg discuss Glenn Youngkin winning the GOP nomination for governor in Virginia and whether the GOP can still win there. They also react to gas stations along the east coast running out of fuel due to the Colonial Pipeline shutdown and the weak response from the White House. And they throw up their hands as the New York Times points out what many knew intuitively – that outdoor transmission of COVID is extremely unlikely. So was the CDC very wrong or hiding the truth?

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Texas lawmakers or advancing legislation on several key conservative priorities. They also discuss the cyber attack that shut down a key fuel pipeline to the eastern U.S. They break down the latest scandal engulfing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. And they remember the wit and conservative wisdom of the late Pete du Pont.

On May 1st, Texas will hold a special election to fill the seat of late U.S. Congressman Ron Wright, who passed away in February from COVID-19. The contentious, all-party election has 23 candidates vying for the seat, including Rep. Wright’s widow Susan.

One of the Republican candidates, Michael Wood, joins Avik Roy, President of FREOPP, to discuss his platform and why he describes this election as “the first battle in this war to take back [the Republican] Party.” In Woods’ words, “It’s time for us to move past [Trump] now before we lose to Democrats in the midterms next year and in the presidential election after that.”

Can conservative principles adapt to appeal to younger generations and minorities? What are realistic conservative policy goals for the 21st century? Is there a future for an inclusive, equal opportunity-oriented conservative movement?

Patrick Ruffini from Echelon Insights, a next-generation polling, analytics, and intelligence firm, joins American Wonk to discuss. Patrick has a background as a political-digital practitioner in GOP politics and is an expert on political, demographic, and technology trends.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer new polling showing that Cuban voters have swung dramatically back towards the Republican Party and strongly against the Obama-Biden approach to Cuba. Their jaws are also on the floor as New York voters want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to stay in office by a fairly wide margin and continue to think he’s done a great job handling the pandemic –  except for the thousands of nursing home deaths.  And Jim unloads on the notion of European sophistication as 15 countries suspend use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

America has become increasingly ripe for a third party, led by an independent and charismatic figure with the right message for these times. No one has come along. Third, fourth, and even fifth parties have been a part of our landscape for most of our existence. Abraham Lincoln in 1860 defeated 3 opponents, including the man who […]

Called ‘The Architect’ by former President George W. Bush, Karl Rove led Bush to victories in 2000 and the last GOP presidential win in 2004 that secured the popular and electoral vote.

Rove goes in-depth on how Texas Republicans did so well in 2020, and where the GOP needs to start winning hearts and minds again to win elections. Rove also takes aim at Steve Bannon, QAnon, Oathkeepers, and others he says have no place in the Republican Party.

Rob does a respectable job of trying to talk Dave off the political edge before Ricochet member and writer at The Federalist, Jenna Stocker helps to spotlight the possibility and strength of faith, family and hope. This is no small task for Jenna, who lives in Minneapolis, a place Dave described as “Mad Max territory,” after months of riots, arson, a spike in violent crime even as the city works to defund the police.
