Hillary Falls Way Behind Sanders in Iowa

It’s déjà vu for team Clinton as she loses ground against yet another upstart Senator. Bernie Sanders is dominating in Iowa and New Hampshire, according to a new set of polls by YouGov: The new poll finds Sen. Sanders with 52% support among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, while former Secretary of State Clinton, long considered the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic nomination, receives 30%. Recent polls have shown Sanders’ lead growing in the Granite State, but this would be the first to show the Vermont Senator over 50%. Possibly more worrying for the Clinton campaign is her performance

The Three Fab Things Ben Carson Told #BlackLivesMatter

In his column going viral, Dr. Ben Carson speaks truth as a black men to the Black Lives Matter movement. Three fab takeaways: 1. Old, white senators from rural states are not the problem: The idea that disrupting and protesting Bernie Sanders speeches will change what is wrong in America is lunacy. The ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change and to the benefit of its powerful white liberal funders using the attacks on Sanders for political purposes that mean nothing for the problems that face our community. 2. Black Moms matter: I

Hillary Clinton Feels the Bern

While the GOP field has seen the rise of anti-establishment candidates like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has been having problems of her own.  The latest poll out of New Hampshire shows Clinton has been bumped into second place by someone previously considered a long shot challenger, Senator Bernie Sanders. To be sure, this isn’t the first time people have speculated that Sanders might be a threat to the presumptive Democratic front runner.  The Washington Post recently noted that a Sanders event drew “an estimated 27,500 people — about five times as large as any crowd that has turned out for

Bernie Sanders as Winnie the Pooh

Bernie Sanders as Winnie the Pooh?  In my weekly column at Forbes.com, I said so.  And I proved it! I, passionately, disagree with most of the prescriptions of Bernie Sanders. Yet his empathy and passion are great things. In Winnie the Pooh, A.A Milne wrote: Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders. “What does ‘under the name’ mean?” asked Christopher Robin. “It means he had the name over the door in gold letters, and lived under it….” Milne made Pooh famous as the “Bear of Very Little Brain.” Yet also, Pooh earned the status

Will Dems Take Away Your School’s Nonprofit Status?

The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack just asked major Democrats in the Senate whether or not they thought religious schools who require their employees to affirm the school’s faith tenets on marriage should have their tax status revoked. Their reactions were not reassuring: Sen. Richard Durbin told him they would be looking at a variety of laws to implement the Court’s ruling, but as to religious schools’ right to hire teachers who affirm their faith? “I don’t have a quick answer for you. I’ll have to think hard and long about that.” Bernie Sanders said probably not: “I don’t know that

“Inside Out” Characters as Presidential Candidates

If you haven’t seen “Inside Out” yet, be sure to do it this weekend. It’s a fantastic movie. “Inside Out” is about the emotional composition of a young girl’s brain and how her emotions affect her life. The five main characters are five key emotions: Joy, Anger, Fear, Sadness, and Disgust. So, what if the “Inside Out” characters were presidential candidates? That seems plausible, right? Four of these quotes are made up. One is a collection of real statements. Can you guess which one is real? JOY…Marco Rubio JOY/Rubio: “This is so fun! I love running for President. I’m so
