Nor should they be.  Four Americans died, at least two of which might have been rescued had prompt action taken place when the attack occurred — and none of them would have been dead had the Obama administration paid attention to the increased

I know you’re polled out, but with all the navel-gazing today about demographics and the future of the GOP, I figured people might want a link to the numbers behind last night’s disaster. Here’s CNN’s version, Fox News’s

The media’s hyperventilating over this as an early sign that the House GOP has been chastised by last night’s presidential/Senate whupping. (WaPo.com’s front-page headline: “A quick pivot after election.”) But …

I must admit, I thought that disenchantment with the shoddy results of President Obama’s first term, combined with the diminished spirit of Hopenchange, would mean we’d see some significant shift from the record-breaking decisiveness of the

One last 2012 poll post for old times’ sake before we start in bright and early tomorrow morning with 2016 polls. (Joking, joking.) There was one basic meta-question in the sturm and drang over Nate Silver and statistical models: Were the state

During his 2008 campaign and the early period of his presidency, President Obama was much more vocal about climate change than he eventually became, as he realized obtaining a second term might be made harder by trying to win the favor of competing

The overall vote in the US wasn’t the only one last night that was oddly contradictory, with voters wanting change but re-electing the status quo.  In Puerto Rico, a non-binding referendum on the future of the US territory found statehood the

Ah, the halcyon days of, er, last week.  Friends insisted that my home state of Minnesota might go red in a presidential election for the first time in 40 years.  Paul Ryan made a last-minute stop, but more thrilling, the Obama campaign sent Bill Clinton
