GOP 3rd Debate

Trump is likely just stronger as a candidate after the 3rd round of debates.

He was more “above the fray” this time, more restrained but also very efficient and authoritative when shutting people down, and in the end – he will probably get enough votes to become the nominee, based upon his proven ability to get things done.

Bush Says He Has Cooler Things to Do

Jeb! seems to be practically signing out of the race with these statements… the reluctant candidate is now the uninterested and unmotivated candidate.. but maybe a part of Jeb is just glad.. that he doesn’t have to do this.. it’s not in his nature and it’s obvious to see….

Jeb Bush sounds like he’s getting frustrated with running for president, CBS News reports.

Said Bush: “If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want anything, I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation.”

He added: “I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, be miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”

A new Ipsos Public Affairs model concludes the Republicans will win the White House in 2016.

“The most important finding from our model is the power of incumbency: if you already hold the office you seek, you are far more likely than not to retain it. Our model showed that incumbents have a threefold greater chance of beating their opponent. When no incumbent is running, successor candidates (in this case, Democrats) are three times less likely to win.”

“Our model proves the power of presidential approval ratings. It determines that in order for a successor candidate to have better than even chances of winning, the sitting president must have an approval rating of above 55 percent. Because Barack Obama’s average approval rating is now at 45 percent, a successor candidate (i.e. Democrat) is unlikely to win.”
