Let Carly Fiorina Into Saturday Night's Debate

nationalreview.com — Finally, Fiorina's actually a good debater and adds something to the stage. She's fun to watch, always comes prepared, and usually has at least one good zinger or joke. If I'm going to have to watch karate-chop my-dad-was-a-mailman John Kasich telling stories about how back in Ohio Jesus told him to expand Medicaid for another night, at least let me see Fiorina drop opposition research with a smile.

What’s the Matter With New Hampshire?

nationalreview.com — Tomorrow, a good chunk of the National Review gang will be in Manchester, New Hampshire for our debate-analysis and podcast-taping event. It's sold out now; sorry if you missed the chance to attend. This may not be the New Hampshire we thought we knew.

What If Hillary Clinton Didn't Win Iowa?

nationalreview.com — Second, too many questions have been raised. Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems. Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night's chaos.

The Return of Hillary Clinton's 'Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy' Excuse

nationalreview.com — You would think, after going out and repeatedly lying to the American people and insisting that all of the allegations against her husband were the work of a "vast right-wing conspiracy," Hillary Clinton would retire the conspiracy theory. But she hasn't.

What to Watch For in New Hampshire Polling

nationalreview.com — Iowa voted Monday; Tuesday would be the first full day of polling that has the Iowa results "priced in" to the respondents' views. For example, Harper Polling's latest survey was conducted February 1 and 2, so only half of its sample was offering their responses after Iowa.

Rick Santorum To Suspend His Campaign

nationalreview.com — It's somewhat fitting that the Rand Paul, probably the most libertarian candidate in the GOP field, and Santorum, arguably the least, depart the same day. These are two perspectives that deserve a seat at the GOP table... but not necessarily at the head of the table.

Either Iowa Needs to Re-Vote or Cruz's Results Must Be Nullified

nationalreview.com — Hey, remember Donald Trump's gracious, sunny, brief concession speech in Iowa? Yeah, never mind all that. Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad! - Donald J.

Iowa Democrats: Hillary Won! … We Think. … Maybe…. If Our Math Was Right.

Lower-Tier Republican Candidates Should Drop Out

nationalreview.com — A lot of old faces in the GOP wasted a lot of time and money this cycle. People of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, and all of our fine states: Let us come together and crush the hopes of unrealistically ambitious politicians, and clear the clogged arteries of this and all future Republican presidential primaries from the globs of human cholesterol we call the "lower-tier" candidates.

Trump's Latest Insane Excuse

nationalreview.com — Donald Trump exuded confidence the day before his first election day, urging supporters Sunday to caucus for him and even talking about the criteria for a vice president. "We're going to win, we're going to win," Trump told an enthusiastic crowd in a middle school gym. "We're leading everywhere."
