A poll released last week by the Council on American-Islamic Relations found that President-elect Donald Trump garnered nearly three times as many votes from Muslim-American men and women than Mitt Romney did during his unsuccessful bid for the White House in 2012. The Daily Caller reports: The CAIR exit poll of more than 2,000 registered Muslim voters found that 74 percent voted for Hillary Clinton and 13 percent voted for Trump. CAIR’s 2012 exit poll showed 85.7 percent of Muslims voted for President Barack Obama and 4.4 percent voted for Romney. During Trump’s campaign for the presidency, he released a plan to ban Muslims from entering ...

Romney’s Comments Spark Critical Debate

Yesterday, liberal magazine Mother Jones released a video of Mitt Romney talking about the nearly 50% of Americans who are dependent on the federal government for at least some of their income. Romney also talked about the 47% of Americans who pay no non-payroll income taxes. His conclusion in the video – which Mother Jones took secretly at a fundraiser several months ago – was that he was never going to win the votes of those people, since his message is about low taxes and decreasing government dependence. As is typical when a non-liberal talks about the truth of dependency on government, the media has become apoplectic. Never mind that, ...

Are Opponents of the the President’s Health Care Law overreacting to Romney?

Since March 2010, getting rid of the President’s health care law has been one of the most important goals of the Tea Party. It dominated the Republican Party’s presidential primary, and was a major factor in the record 2010 elections.

Gingrich/Romney race not a failure of Tea Party

By Mark Petrina Jay Bookman published a blog claiming a Gingrich/Romney race represents failure of the tea party because they are both establishment politicians. Bookman is wrong Herman Cain was a Tea Party favorite who dropped out because of the dirty tricks of a corrupt, partisan media . Romney is a contender because the "Establishment" is still very powerful. The media is very powerful, but despises the Tea Party, so we are fighting on lots of fronts. Gingrich, regardless of his baggage, is talking the Tea Party game more effectively and strongly than anybody else. He is the most aggressive anti-Obama, and has lots of appealing ideas. That ...
