Katie Couric: Does Gender Revolution prove abortion is murder?

It can be a sad thing to watch members of the left-wing media gradually fade away into oblivion as they endeavor to find new ways to be relevant in a world where their progressive ideology is struggling to survive. But…

Fact-checking the Pi-Press

This article in the Pi-Press is disgusting in its dishonesty. In the article, the ‘reporter’ says that “Trump’s highly controversial order suspends refugee admissions for 120 days and bars all immigration for 90 days of citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries with terrorism concerns: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Those now being barred from […]

Dishonest media strikes again

The dishonest media is doing its best to whip the nation into a frenzy by not reporting the contents of President Trump’s EO accurately. Democrats are doing everything possible to keep the public misinformed. Kamala Harris, who replaced Barbara Boxer as the junior senator from California, is protesting President Trump’s EO that temporarily bans Muslims […]

President Trump’s “dark” speech

Byron York’s article about media reaction to President Trump’s inauguration speech is telling in that it exposes the media’s groupthink. York notes that “Talking to people on the Mall was like entering a universe entirely apart from that of the political commentariat. In the pundits’ world, Trump delivered a pessimistic and foreboding address, one sure […]

Donald Trump, fake news and the US Constitution

In my commentary yesterday covering Donald Trump’s first press conference since last summer, I briefly mentioned his headline-grabbing bullying of a CNN reporter. You may recall that Trump accused CNN of being a “fake news” organization after lumping together a…

Croman’s pro-DFL bias showing

John Croman’s article reads like a DFL propaganda piece. That’s mostly because that’s what it is. The article starts by saying “Minnesota’s top budget official warned Monday that the Republican health insurance premium relief plan will significantly delay aid payments to those facing sharp increases in 2017. Commissioner Myron Frans, who heads the Minnesota Management […]

Dishonest Paul Krugman

Paul Krugman’s latest column is proof positive that he’s exceptionally dishonest. In his opening paragraph, Krugman wrote “If James Comey, the F.B.I. director, hadn’t tipped the scales in the campaign’s final days with that grotesquely misleading letter, right now an incoming Clinton administration would be celebrating some very good news. Because health reform, President Obama’s […]

Why the media missed the Story of the Year

Salena Zito’s article turns the spotlight on the MSM, aka the Agenda Media, to highlight why the media got this election badly wrong. Early in the article, Salena wrote about the NY Times, saying “Take The New York Times’ public editor’s laudable call for more diversity in the newsroom. ‘The executive editor, Dean Baquet, is […]

E.J. Dionne on drugs?

After reading just a couple paragraphs of E.J. Dionne’s latest humorfest, it’s difficult to take the left seriously anymore. I can’t say that Mr. Dionne’s opinions are representative of the left’s worldview. Unfortunately, I can’t say that they aren’t commonplace, either. For instance, Dionne wrote that “It is this spirit that began to take hold […]

Obamacare repeal pessimism

Considering their liberal leaning, it isn’t surprising that Vanity Fair is running interference for Obamacare. In their opinion, the “pressure will be on Republicans to fix the $3 trillion U.S. health-care system they have derided for years—and they will have no one to blame but themselves if the insurance market is upended and millions of […]

Biased media, DFL, getting it wrong

This Our View editorial in the Mankato Free Press gets it wrong. That isn’t surprising. It’s predictable. Let’s look at what the MFP got wrong. MFP’s headline is simple: “Our View: Legislature: Make divided government work.” Let’s be clear about something. Republicans gained seats in the House during a presidential election. While they were expected […]

The media’s mea culpa?

I sat stunned while reading this article about the media getting things badly wrong about this past Tuesday’s election. The reason why I’m stunned is because it’s written by Will Rahn, a “political correspondent and managing director, politics, for CBS News Digital.” Rahn’s article doesn’t pull punches. For instance, Rahn wrote “It shouldn’t come as […]

Dayton-DFL rebates aren’t solution

I don’t dispute the fact that Gov. Dayton’s proposed rebates for a suspected 123,000 Minnesotans will shrink the sticker shock of these Minnesotans’ premium increases. I’ll even give Gov. Dayton credit for his sleight-of-hand trickery that’s made the ACA’s other problems disappear. This Our View editorial helped remind me of Gov. Dayton’s and the DFL’s […]

Last night’s biggest loser

With all of the conjecture and opinions that surround each presidential debate, it’s easy to find opinions on who lost the most as a result of last night’s presidential debate. While it might be popular to say that Hillary was last night’s biggest loser, I’d argue that Jonathan V. Last is last night’s biggest loser. […]

Vote-changing facts about Apollo

The constant drumbeat from the St. Cloud Times and the ISD 742 School Board is that a) Tech is ancient and falling apart and b) we have to build a new Tech HS at the cost of $104,500,000. What they don’t want voters to know is that Apollo a) currently houses the district offices and […]

St. Cloud Times: Drop MNsure

When I read the headline to this Our View editorial, I almost had another heart attack. In this morning’s St. Cloud Times, the Editorial Board wrote that “It’s time to move away from MNsure.” Of course, the subtitle said “Do NOT scrap the entire Affordable Care Act. The truth is it has brought many good […]

Trump, Tax Reform, and the Media-Generated Faux Controversy over “Net Operating Losses”

Because of his support for big government, I don’t like Donald Trump. Indeed, I have such disdain for him (as well as Hillary Clinton) that I’ve arranged to be out of the country when the election takes place. The establishment media, by contrast, is excited about the election and many journalists are doing everything possible […]

What’s Less Trustworthy than the Candidates? The Media

Vox goes off the rails

Vox has had credibility issues since its inception. That problem isn’t going away anytime soon, thanks to German Lopez’s tweet in which he insists that “Conservative blogger gets upset at violence and riots, demands mass murder, gets suspended from Twitter — and people defend him. Okay.” As usual, Ed Morrissey is all over this in […]

New Polls: Black And Hispanic Voters Are Turning From Clinton To Trump


According to new polls, Donald Trump is up to 20% among black voters, and rising. And among Hispanic voters, a very diverse group Trump is actually exceeding Romney, especially in key battle ground states:

In some places, Trump is actually outperforming Romney. In Nevada, for example, President Obama ran up a 47-point margin of victory among Hispanic voters in 2012, according to exit polls, defeating Romney 71 percent to 24 percent. A recent Marist poll in the state for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal showed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading among Hispanics, but by the smaller margin of 35 points, 65 percent to 30 percent.

A series of Univision polls earlier this month surveying Hispanic voters in four battleground states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Nevada — also put Trump in the same ballpark as Romney four years ago. Clinton’s lead over Trump among Hispanics in Colorado was smaller than Obama’s margin in that state in 2012.

A Bloomberg Politics “poll decoder” on Tuesday averaged several national surveys and found Clinton leading among Hispanics by 38 points. But Obama won the group by six points more in 2012, according to exit polls.


Actually, I think both these numbers for black and Latino numbers supporting Trump are understated. People in many of these communities might say one thing to pollsters and their peers just to go along to get along, but for a surprising number, what happens inside the voting booth is going to be quite different. None of this will be any surprise to people who have actually attended his Yu-uge rallies and seen the diversity of the people whom attend them.


The reason for that is obvious. Trump is talking bread and butter issues to the communities that have been hardest hit by Obama’s policies. He’s talking jobs to people that desperately need them. He’s talking ending illegal migration to people that have to live with the results of increased housing costs, lower wages and diminished prospects. He’s talking school choice to people desperate to get their kids out of dysfunctional public schools and better law enforcement to people that have to live with the reality of crack houses, gangs flourishing in their neighborhoods and the ever present danger of their children being murdered as collateral damage in street wars.

What’s even more important is that he’s going to their neighborhoods and talking directly to these people, not just issuing policy papers and statements. Mitt Romney had the baggage of his LDS faith, an issue for some Catholics and Evangelicals. But what I think really cut his numbers down among blacks and Latinos was that with rare exceptions he ignored them. There were few if any campaign offices in minority neighborhoods, little phone banking or canvassing and definitely very few if any rallies or campaign events,let alone poll watchers. That’s why in places like detroit and Philadelphia you had precincts with 120% turnout and not a single recorded Romney vote.

Trump is doing exactly the opposite, and it’s going to show up to a surprising degree on election day.

Fun fact: there’s an organized campaign to get bigoted Trump hater Jorge Ramos removed from his slot as a news anchor at UniVison. And while Brent Bozell is heading it, the campaign is being driven by Latino journalists and public figures.

Whore Hay won’t be leaving, of course but the very fact that his nonsense is being increasingly recognized is unprecedented.

The times, they are a’changing.
