Join Jim and Greg discuss how the 3 Martini Lunch factored into a major debate Tuesday night! Then the turn to the martinis as they welcome polling evidence that even more House races are tilting towards the Republicans and nearly all generic polls show a GOP edge…but you still need to vote! They also groan as Saudi intelligence suggests Iran is planning an “imminent” attack but also note the likely return of Benjamin Netanyahu to in Israel. And President Biden plans to discuss why voting for his party is needed to save democracy after his party spent millions trying to get Republicans nominated who they considered the most extreme.

Join Jim and Greg as they process polling numbers in the Arizona governor’s race and wonder whether Democrats made bad decisions about debating in two key states. They’re also horrified as the Air Force admits its personnel records about a Republican congressional candidate and her sexual assault in Iraq were leaked to a Democratic opposition research firm and got published in Politico. And Jim has zero confidence that anyone will face consequences for such a heinous act. Finally, after years of insisting President Trump and Republicans are an existential threat to democracy, a Dem-connect PAC is spending tons of money on ads saying the GOP candidates are not loyal enough to Trump and that his voters should support Libertarian candidates.

Beginning now, and continuing under after the mid-terms, there will be howls bemoaning inaccurate polls. I am genuinely confused why we keep polling, or even pay attention to polls. This summer, I asked a friend, who is a VP of Customer Research, if her organization gathers data by calling people. She laughed uproariously. “No” was […]

During the 1994 elections, I chaired an informal organization of senior GOP congressional aides. We met monthly to hear from various GOP newsmakers and insiders. Before the historic 1994 “Contract with America” election, I invited the House and Senate GOP campaign committees’ staff directors and Republican National Committee chair and future two-term Mississippi Governor Haley […]

Join Jim & Greg as they dissect a Monmouth poll showing President Biden’s approval rating sinking even lower and frustration quickly mounting over rising prices. They also wade into the GOP Senate primary fight in Pennsylvania, where one candidate shows no history of being a conservative and another won’t share much history at all. And they have plenty to say as Biden disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz suggests verified Twitter users ought to be able to edit other people’s tweets to fight disinformation – assuming Twitter ever gets an edit button.

 

Join Greg and Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel as they welcome fundraising and polling news that significantly contradicts the idea that overturning Roe v. Wade will move midterm momentum to the Democrats. They also shudder at reports the CDC as tracking our movements through our cell phones to make sure we were complying with lockdown orders. And they take aim at the Lincoln Project and others who pretended to be conservatives for many years but are now supposedly appalled at the idea of Roe being struck down. Of course it’s all just part of their ongoing efforts to fleece liberal donors in the name of opposing the political right.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome new polls showing New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan deadlocked with her possible GOP rivals after her sudden interest in border security faces a major backlash. They also shudder at a Pentagon report showing the U.S. military is dangerously dependent upon China for critical components needed to fight effectively. And they shake their heads as Sen. Elizabeth Warren tries to argue that “forgiving” student loan debt by forcing taxpayers to foot the bill will not add to inflation.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they wonder if Supreme Court Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s inability to define “woman” disqualifies her from the high court. They cover Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s announcement that many more interest rate hikes are coming and that inflation may last for three more years. And Russian Climate Envoy Anatoly Chubais steps down, citing his opposition to the invasion of Ukraine.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud the GOP’s ingenious new strategy to register angry voters at the gas pump ahead of the upcoming midterms. They rebuke Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger for his preachy and illogical call for Israel to do more for Ukraine. And despite nobody inviting him, Dr. Anthony Fauci returns to warn that mandates and other measures may need to return if COVID numbers begin to climb again.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they assess the newest poll on the Florida governor’s race that shows Ron DeSantis with a solid lead. They also cheer as D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser drops the vaccine and mask mandates amid economic pressure and low COVID numbers. And Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm refuses to answer questions about her stock holdings because, “The planet is warming faster than ever”.

Join Jim and Greg as they analyze the sinking support for President Biden among Democrats and what it means for his re-election chances. They also cover a new report that suggests Russia may not be ready to invade Ukraine. And a new filing by Special Counsel John Durham raises questions about the Clinton campaign’s culpability for spying on Donald Trump – even in the White House.

Join Jim and Greg as they praise Virginia state senators for voting to strike down school mask mandates in a lopsided vote. They also feign astonishment as high profile Democrats change their tune after failing to pass their radical agenda and the midterm elections get closer. And they analyze Chris Cuomo’s ridiculous demand to keep quiet about information he allegedly has about CNN’s dealings with his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect the stunningly horrible poll numbers for President Biden in a new poll both on key issues and his overall performance. They also shake their heads as the backlog of cargo ships off America’s west coast gets worse and worse. And they are flabbergasted as just how bad Vice President Kamala Harris is at the simplest parts of her job, like answering basic questions.

 

After a brief discussion about outgoing Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam commenting on his blackface yearbook photo, Jim & Greg welcome polls showing just 40 percent of Michigan voters are ready to re-elect Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They also grimace as year-on-year inflation is the worst in almost 40 years. And they hammer President Biden for saying anyone not supporting the Dems’ plan on elections reform is the equivalent of George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect new polls that show voters trusting Republicans more on several key issues and by wide margins.  They also roll their eyes at the climate summit in Scotland and at climate envoy John Kerry’s effort to end energy derived from coal altogether. And they unload at the Lincoln Project and its Democratic operative allies for Friday’s stunt aimed at looking like white supremacists were supporting the GOP candidate for governor in Virginia.

Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim.  Today, Jon and Greg welcome polls showing just a 4-6 point lead for the Democrat in the New Jersey governor’s race. They also have plenty to say as emails show the National School Board Association and the Biden administration were in contact well before the NSBA publicly asked for the administration’s help in declaring parents domestic terrorists and the Justice Department turned the FBI loose on those same parents. And they have fun with the argument from some on the left that trees need legal rights.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they are glad to see a poll definitively showing Americans are paying close attention to some of our nation’s biggest problems and concluding the Biden administration is handling them poorly.  They also fume as more evidence piles up, this time from Japan, that President Biden has no desire to assign responsibility for the outbreak of COVID-19 and made sure our intelligence review remained inconclusive.  And they discuss John Kerry saying that President Biden had no idea the French were furious about the recent nuclear submarine deal with the UK and Australia and White Press Secretary Jen Psaki claim Kerry didn’t mean that.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a Quinnipiac poll showing Republicans actually leading Democrats on the 2022 generic ballot. They also stunned in disbelief as Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx refuses to press any charges in a fatal gang shootout because the deadly violence involved “mutual combatants” who willingly took part. And they shake their heads as there is considerable disagreement among government officials over whether booster shots are a needed for most people who have been vaccinated.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a new poll showing Americans are far more negative towards President Biden’s big government spending binge once they know tax hikes would be part of it. They also cringe as China repeatedly threatens Taiwan by sending dozens of fighters and bombers over the island. And they discuss the leftist activists who chased Sen. Sinema into the bathroom to air their political grievances with her and how the activists are receiving virtually no condemnation in the media or elsewhere on the left.
