The Lesser of Three Evils

April 25, 2016 Real­ity-check time: Don­ald Trump’s re­sound­ing vic­tory in his home state of New York didn’t sig­ni­fic­antly al­ter his pro­spects for win­ning the ne­ces­sary del­eg­ates be­fore the Clev­e­land con­ven­tion. He won 89 out of 95 del­eg­ates in his home state, not many more than ex­pec­ted. He’s still on pace to fin­ish short...

Scott Walker, Not Paul Ryan, Could Be the GOP's Cleveland Surprise

April 6, 2016 The buzz sur­round­ing Paul Ry­an as a GOP pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee hit a fever pitch this week, after Politico’s Mike Al­len floatedthe pos­sib­il­ity of the House speak­er emer­ging at a con­tested con­ven­tion. But in real­ity, the Re­pub­lic­an more likely to pre­vail in such a scen­ario is an­oth­er Wis­con­sin­ite: Gov. Scott Walk­er....

Why Cruz Would Be Better for the GOP

March 28, 2016 This week, I wrote about the loom­ing dis­aster that a Trump nom­in­a­tion would cre­ate for House and Sen­ate Re­pub­lic­ans, but I didn’t ad­dress the oth­er ele­phant in the room: Ted Cruz. The con­ven­tion­al wis­dom sug­gests that Cruz is only slightly more elect­able than Trump—with some party lead­ers view­ing him as...

Cruz and Kasich Are Playing Right Into Trump's Hands

March 21, 2016 Even as Don­ald Trump’s strong per­form­ance Tues­day night was a ser­i­ous set­back to the anti-Trump move­ment, the biggest obstacles to stop­ping Trump are his own Re­pub­lic­an rivals. In­stead of work­ing to­geth­er and deny­ing Trump del­eg­ates, both Ted Cruz and John Kasich have pur­sued self-de­struct­ive, self-in­ter­ested strategies that seemed de­signed more...

Trump's Very Super Tuesday

March 16, 2016 PALM BEACH, Fla.— If it wasn’t already clear, last night’s res­ults un­der­scored that Don­ald Trump is a Te­flon can­did­ate who draws strength from the kind of con­tro­versy that would end most nor­mal cam­paigns. The fren­zied protests last week­end that led to Trump can­cel­ling a Chica­go rally only helped Trump build...

The Odds of a Contested Convention Have Never Been Higher

March 7, 2016 Don­ald Trump’s not-so-ma­gic num­ber in the Re­pub­lic­an primar­ies is 34 per­cent. That’s the av­er­age share of the vote Trump has re­ceived in the first 19 con­tests. He won one-third of the vote in the four early races, 34 per­cent on Su­per Tues­day, and a dis­ap­point­ing 33 per­cent av­er­age in the...

Will Rubio's Assault on Trump Pay Off Tuesday?

February 29, 2016 If Marco Ru­bio’s dom­in­ant de­bate per­form­ance, re­lent­less mock­ing of Don­ald Trump’s ap­pear­ance, and in­creased scru­tiny of Trump’s busi­ness re­cord don’t give the sen­at­or from Flor­ida mo­mentum on Su­per Tues­day, it’s hard to see how he wins the GOP nom­in­a­tion. Ab­sent fresh polling, there are signs that Ru­bio is mak­ing in­roads...

Chaos Wins Republican Primary in New Hampshire

February 10, 2016 Don­ald Trump’s re­sound­ing vic­tory in New Hamp­shire not only ce­men­ted the busi­ness­man’s stand­ing as a front-run­ning GOP can­did­ate. The crowded un­der­card battle for second place was as con­sequen­tial, en­sur­ing a long, pro­trac­ted fight for the Re­pub­lic­an nom­in­a­tion that could well be de­cided at the Clev­e­land con­ven­tion. Trump ex­ceeded the already...

Iowa Results Mean a Three-Way GOP Race

February 2, 2016 DES MOINES, Iowa—After the hype, end­less me­dia at­ten­tion, and dom­in­ance in the polls, Don­ald Trump is leav­ing Iowa with a whim­per. The bil­lion­aire busi­ness­man barely hung on to second place, be­hind Ted Cruz and nar­rowly ahead of a sur­ging Marco Ru­bio. What happened? Why did all the ex­perts mis­dia­gnose the...

Tough Talk vs. Military Muscle

December 16, 2015 In a de­bate that be­came something of a ref­er­en­dum on former Pres­id­ent George W. Bush’s in­ter­ven­tion­ist for­eign policy, the highest-pro­file com­batants were two fresh­man sen­at­ors: Marco Ru­bio and Ted Cruz. Ru­bio, in line with Bush’s leg­acy, called for a more ro­bust Amer­ic­an role in the Middle East and ag­gress­ive coun­terter­ror­ism...
