Bleh! ABC has given GOP way more coverage, one of their reporters just chased down the Cruz bus as it arrived at his party event.

can't believe his father's support dried up. Must of been rage against the machine trumpers and sanders voters now?

---

I think these results are exactly what the RNC wanted.
Cruz slows down trump, and now all that establishment money will be flowing towards a surging rubio. idk what carson is doing, and libertarians dead in the water at 5% .

Narrative will be moved to surging rubio. rubio gets his first win in nevada and that is where cruz will lose momentum. Then it's going to be a question if trump wants to outspend the RNC and the whole gop establishment. He'll have to ask himself if it's worth it.

I'm calling it right now.

This is the beginning of the fall of Trump. He's a "winner" and 2nd place is loosing.



The research he's referring to, conducted by political scientist Larry Bartels (now at Vanderbilt University) and published in 1985, found that in close, ambiguous political contests, preferences and expectations are tightly related and mutually reinforcing. There's a "bandwagon effect" that sees voters, especially low-information voters, flock to the candidate most expected to win.

Yes, Donald Trump Will Implode, Here's Why:

Trump's supporters like his "winner" mentality and Trump's "strength" as a winner. When he's not winning, he's loosing -- and his supporters don't like losers.

And out of everyone, Trump hates loosing more than anyone....

If God were real, he'd show up about now and say something like, "This woman is a criminal!"

I cannot believe she is "leading," yet I can believe it. What a sad day.

Just because Cruz won, it does not mean he somehow has this in the bag. The last two winners of the Iowa caucuses were Santorum and Huckabee. Counting your chickens before they hatch is not always a wise thing. Those pulling for him and against him may be surprised in the end.

That's a bit premature.

Trump should show very well in New Hampshire.

With the race being so tight, this place is blowing-up. Tons of people inside the main hall, foyers are packed and the parking lot is full.

Great turnout for Bernie tonight, both here and at the caucuses.

The Democrats are for the establishment, they can never be communist or left wing.

Sure they can. Just for us little people, not for themselves or the super rich or the big corps.

Sanders keeps wavering between 50 and 49%. That he's the one whose numbers keeps going down and then up to tie doesn't look good.

ABC is covering that event... they said the band stand crowd has been dancing literally since 5:30 this morning. That's the one you're at, right?

The Democrats were left wing under FDR and JFK, 'till they were usurped by the New Democrats (big daddy Clinton).

Both parties are for the majority part corporate whores, though.
edit on 1/2/2016 by Eilasvaleleyn because: Said Reagan instead of FDR for some reason.
