***Horse Race LiveWire*** GOP Debate Tonight!

Marco Rubio (R-FL) speaks during a campaign rally at theTampa Convention Center on March 7, 2016 in Tampa, Florida.
Welcome to Breitbart News’s daily live updates of the 2016 horse race.  — 8:30 – “Bernie: Because F**k This Sh*t” Ahead of me in Miami traffic jam. Not certain it’s official campaign slogan pic.twitter.com/KVkyBgFRqd — David Rennie (@DSORennie) March 10, 2016   8:18 – Camille Paglia: I was wrong about Donald Trump Well, Trump may still be a carnival barker, but he’s looking more and more like a president!  Along with most media pundits in the Northeast, I found it improbable if not impossible that Trump could survive his klutz-o-rama cascade of foot-in-mouth flubs, from carelessly categorizing Mexican immigrants as rapists to hallucinating about “thousands’ of Muslims cheering the fall of the twin towers from the mean streets of New Jersey.  Surely he would soon implode and pouf into fairy dust! But only a few weeks after that interview of mine in Salon, I suddenly realized that Trump’s candidacy had a broad support that few had expected or discerned.  The agent of my revelation was a hilariously scathing, viral Web blog video posted by Diamond and Silk–Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, two African-American sisters and former Democrats in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  They were reacting with indignant outrage to the first GOP debate,

Embattled ESPN Cries Uncle: Streaming Now On the Table

ESPN
ESPN, the left-wing sports network that has hemorrhaged 7 million subscribers in just two years, which translates into $1.3 billion in lost revenue, is floating the idea of throwing in the towel on the issue of streaming. Disney CEO Bob Iger said at a conference Tuesday, “Rights are not an issue, It can be done… but there are issues we face doing it. Pricing is one of them.” Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, and the consequences of them (“skinny” cable bundles that do not include ESPN), have cost ESPN big-time. A standalone, subscription streaming service might be an option to pick up some of those lost subscribers. In order to believe that, though, you have to believe that the 7 million lost subscribers were fans of ESPN. My guess is that most of those 7 million lost subscribers were not ESPN fans. Rather, they were individuals sick and tired of paying for an obscenely-priced cable or satellite package — and a big reason for that obscene pricing is ESPN. Whether you watch ESPN or not, if it is part of your cable package, you are paying the left-wing outlet $6 a month. This is called a carriage fee.

Trump Expands Big Lead In Florida, Up In Ohio

Two pollsters looked at two crucial states and delivered only good news for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. The GOP Establishment’s stated goal is to stop Trump from winning the number of delegates necessary to outright claim the Republican presidential nomination. The idea is to then go to a brokered convention where Party delegates get to choose whomever they like. In order to do that, Trump must first lose the winner-take-all-states of Ohio and Florida. With just six days to go, these polls show Trump  leading in both.   Florida According to Quinnipiac, despite 10 days of facing down the GOP Establishment/DC Media Death Star, Trump has actually expanded his lead in Florida. Currently, the billionaire businessman leads favorite son Marco Rubio 45% to 22%, a full +23 points. Last month, in this same poll, Trump was up by just +16 points over Rubio, 44% to 28%. Only 6% of voters remain undecided. Ted Cruz earns 18% support. John Kasich sits at just 8%. Trump also leads in the demos: Trump leads Rubio 39 – 27 percent among women and 50 – 17 percent among men. Self-described Tea Party members go 48 percent for Trump, 40 percent for Cruz and 9

***Horse Race LiveWire*** Trump Routs Rubio; Bernie Upsets Hillary

No. I’m with @NolteNC. https://t.co/roxbO61wSw — stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) March 9, 2016 — Twitter not great for subtlety.Great admirer of John but our views of what below means takes us down different paths https://t.co/roxbO61wSw — stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) March 9, 2016 — This might end up being a very, very important point & a question that should be asked. Really smart. https://t.co/M3S3WH40Pd — stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) March 9, 2016   7:41 – CNN polls show Trump up +5 in Ohio; Trump up +16 in Florida Ohio: Trump 41%, Kasich 35%, Cruz 19%, Kasich 5% Fla: Trump 40%, Rubio 24%, Cruz 15%, Rubio 7% It is hard to imagine how Kasich’s third place showing in Michigan helps him in Ohio next week. Are people really going to surge for someone who has won zero states and, outside of a stolen convention, has zero chance of winning the nomination?   7:36 – Head-to-head, Clinton beats Trump 50% to 41% in a new ABC News poll. Important context is the fact that for the last 10 days, Trump has been under withering

Rubio Crashes: Could Go Home with Zero Delegates

rubio
As of this writing, 92% of Mississippi is counted and Marco Rubio sits in last place with just 5% support. Third place John Kasich almost doubles Rubio with 9%. Donald Trump is running away with 48%. Ted Cruz is in second place with just 36%. Meanwhile in Michigan, with 74% counted, Rubio is again in last place with just 9%. Cruz and Kasich are fighting for second place with almost three times Rubio’s support, 25%. Trump won the state and currently sits at 37%. With 25% of Idaho in, Rubio is in third place and just below the 20% threshold required to earn any delegates there. If these numbers hold, Marco Rubio will not win a single delegate in any of these three states.  Hawaii is still a few hours away. By my count, so far, the Republican Savior is 1 – 22 in the GOP primary, and that’s if you are generous enough to count Minnesota as a state and not as Southern Canada-with-worse-schools. Rubio also won Puerto Rico, which is a welfare state but not a state. On behalf of Marco Rubio, the GOP Death Star and their DC Media allies have spent the last 10 days throwing

Rubio vs. CNN: The Little Marco Who Cried Liar

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio speaks at a rally Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016, in Houston.
Generally, when a Republican calls a CNN reporter a liar, your gotta take the side of the Republican. CNN doesn’t just lie, CNN is a network chock-full of left-wing propagandists deeply devoted to electing Democrats, expanding the scope of the federal government, and forcing Christians to participate in same sex marriages. CNN is much worse than MSNBC. The problem here is Marco Rubio’s track record. When Team Rubio is hit with a story they don’t like, Team Rubio lies. We know this for a fact because the candidate himself told a series of objective lies about Breitbart News during an interview with Fox News late last month. Matthew Boyle’s reporting was solid, sourced, and featured on-the-record quotes. When confronted with the story on Fox News, among other lies, Rubio attacked us as a “conspiracy” site (when he contributed a piece to us just two weeks earlier), said his campaign never credentialed our reporters (it does), and misinformed viewers about our lead source’s role with ICE. This wasn’t the usual-usual political spin on Rubio’s part. He objectively lied. Fast-forward to Monday night and what we again have is Team Marco screaming liar, this time at CNN, over a story that claims
