    Passion of Obama Opponents Spells Doom for Dems

    In using public opinion polls to predict electoral outcomes, it's crucial to consider not only what people feel but how strongly, how passionately they feel it. In that context, a new AP-GfK survey of 1,012 adults taken between March 20th and 24th delivers more than a warning for President Obama…

    In Jeb vs. Hillary, It’s Obvious Who’s the Fresh Face

    Looking toward the next presidential race, many commentators groan at the prospect of a tiresome dynastic war between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Jeb Bush. Conventional wisdom sees both candidates as too shopworn to inspire enthusiasm, but Jeb Bush is hardly as familiar a celebrity as Secretary Clinton. He's never…

  • Thank the Godless

    In trying to explain two consecutive presidential defeats, some Republican commentators blame Christian evangelicals for the perceived decline in their political participation. But 2012 exit polls showed 26% of all voters identifying as “White Evangelical/Born-Again Christians” – a significant increase from the 23 percent who described themselves that way in…

    Gay Marriage: Not a Done Deal

    World Vision enjoys a well-deserved reputation as an effective, idealistic Christian relief organization but it recently suffered an embarrassing setback in handling the same-sex marriage issue.

    Increasingly desperate Democrats, facing the prospect of a conservative tidal wave in November, depend on a few hackneyed lines of attack in their last ditch efforts to demonize resurgent Republicans. The libs love to characterize their rivals as woman-hating theocrats, greedy exploiters and, most outrageously, as ignorant extremists who reject…

    Is Hillary too old for 2016?

    If Hillary Clinton made her widely anticipated bid for the presidency, would her age become a legitimate issue? Skeptics have already taken to the Internet to raise their concerns.

  • The Dems Wage “War on Science”

    The Dems Wage “War on Science”

    Democrats often try to demonize conservatives for their “war on science” but it's the left—not the right—that consistently defies scientific evidence on gender and sexuality. Liberals reliably ignore all studies showing men and women as fundamentally different, not just in musculature but also in brain structure. They illogically assume that…

    Out of the Mainstream on Ukraine

    The most serious threat for Rand Paul's prospective presidential campaign doesn't come from Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan or Ted Cruz. It actually comes from his own father—former Congressman Ron Paul. In the midst of the Ukraine crisis and Russia's annexation of Crimea, the three-time failed presidential candidate has…
