I used to listen to quite a bit of talk radio but in the past four years or so, I have listened to a hand full of talk radio shows, mostly when Mark Steyn was the guest host for Rush Limbaugh. What has replaced talk radio consumption? Yes, of course, podcasts from Ricochet and other […]

George Will — the token “conservative commentator” the Democrat Media Complex likes to have on panels with 3 or 4 liberals — is very sad that the Republican nominee is Donald Trump. So sad is George Will that he not only wants Trumpy to lose, he wants Trump to lose in a devastating electoral landslide that probably loses the […]

We heard an interview on 89.1 talk radio while heading to Lowes on Sunday. Whether you are pro or anti-Trump, it was interesting and informative, and secondly, in the radio interview, the journalist, David Cay Johnston, posed some important questions on the current state of journalistic reporting. While you may or may not like his […]

Do you have fifteen minutes? Listen to this interview: This is what it takes to make me speak up for as opposed to against Mr. Jonah Goldberg, until recently a star in the intellectual firmament of recent American conservatism. He lays out his case against talk-radio-at-its-best for its connivance in the rise of Mr. Trump. Mr. Bennett, I believe, […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Republican Self-Sabotage

 

shutterstock_193802486The latest CBS poll suggests that the Trump juggernaut continues to roll, with 35 percent of Republicans supporting him. Ted Cruz, his nearest rival, garners 18 percent. Jeb Bush, the candidate who should have been the obvious choice if conventional wisdom about money and politics were even remotely true, is dead last with 4 percent. In vain does Ted Cruz protest that Donald Trump is not a conservative. Among those who describe themselves as “very conservative,” 35 percent favor Trump versus 30 percent for Cruz, and 12 percent for Rubio.

In South Carolina, Trump is ahead among the evangelical voters Ted Cruz targeted as his savior army that would rise up to carry a true conservative to victory. According to a Fox News poll (2/18), Trump leads Cruz 31 percent to 23 percent among evangelical Christians. And while Cruz leads among those who identify as “very conservative” it’s a razor-thin edge (well within the margin of error).
