Donald Trump Godzillas across New Hampshire - which bodes well in future states

washingtonpost.com — Donald Trump's second-place finish in Iowa disappointed no one in the country more than Donald Trump. But that was Ted Cruz territory through-and-through: Lots of conservatives, lots of evangelicals and Trump got outplayed in a state where that matters. New Hampshire is very different. It's a state with more independents, fewer conservatives and fewer evangelicals.

How the presidential hopefuls voted on Iraq - and why it matters

washingtonpost.com — There are several very obvious reasons why the Iraq war has jostled to a position at the center of the 2016 conversation. One is that the rise of the Islamic State in the region has made foreign policy and the handling of Iraq an important point of debate for possible candidates.

Obama Calls for Infrastructure Spending - for the Fifth Time in Five Years

thewire.com — Speaking Friday in Miami, President Obama called for $21 billion in new national infrastructure investment. This is a strong break from past years - when he called for the creation of an infrastructure bank in the autumn. In 2009, the newly elected president had his only success in getting Congress to approve money for infrastructure.

Bernie Sanders huge New Hampshire win exposes a fractured Democratic Party

washingtonpost.com — The results in New Hampshire show a Democratic Party in the state that is deeply ruptured demographically and ideologically -- in a way that happened to very much favored Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night. It's easier to talk about the groups with whom Sanders didn't dominate in New Hampshire on Tuesday night than it is to talk about the ones where he did.

Is Google hinting at a John Kasich surge in New Hampshire?

washingtonpost.com — In the cosmic scale, we are all newcomers -- a little uptick at the very, very end of the universe's timeline. In the scale of the history of politics in the United States, the era of the Internet and social media and Google searches is only slightly better; a little shift down there at the end once you get past the Continental Congress and the Civil War and the Civil Rights Act and all of that.

How West Virginia explains Donald Trump’s political success

washingtonpost.com — George W. Bush turned West Virginia red, but Barack Obama turned it scarlet. In 2008, West Virginia Democrats backed Hillary Clinton in the primary like she was a lump of coal incarnate. In 2012, an incarcerated felon pulled 41 percent of the Democratic vote in the state. And that was the Democrats.

A big caveat to all that New Hampshire polling: Voters decide late

washingtonpost.com — As they trudge through the snow to the polls, a decent chunk of New Hampshire voters will still not have made up their minds about whom to support. A larger chunk only decided within the past few days.

Michael Bloomberg has no patience for your argument that he can’t win U.S. presidency. He knows better

news.nationalpost.com — Michael Bloomberg confirmed to the Financial Times on Monday that, yes, he was considering a presidential run. "I find the level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters," Bloomberg told the paper in the first instance on record of Donald Trump being called "banal."

The overwhelming white-ness of Iowa and New Hampshire, in context

washingtonpost.com — New Hampshirites heading to the polls on Tuesday, regardless of party, will share a few things in common: A sense of duty, a spirited embrace of democracy, and white skin. We've noted before that Iowa and New Hampshire are whiter than the rest of the country; it was part of my argument one year ago that the first state to vote should be one like California, not Iowa.
