Pollsters, welcome to New Hampshire

Here are the latest poll averages from RealClear Politics: Here’s the bad news for Marco Rubio from the FiveThirtyEight blog: According to our polls-only forecast, Rubio has a 42 percent chance of finishing in at least second (Donald Trump has a 77 percent chance of finishing first). That leaves a 58 percent chance of Rubio finishing third or worse. In fact, both our polls-only and polls-plus... [Read more]

Hitching a ride to higher taxes

The state Assembly is considering a bill this week to allow counties to raise the sales tax to pay for road improvements. Over at the MacIver Institute, I explain why this is a really bad idea. It blows past the wrong way sign on the road to higher taxes. In theory, the money would have to be spent on road projects.

Collin Roth of RightWisconsin was kind enough to snap a few photos: I forgot to ask if they had extra Skyline Chili. We discussed the issue of repealing the minimum markup law where I just laid it out there that the reason there are no public hearings on the issue... [Read more]

Barring the unforeseen, I will be on Charlie Sykes’ program on WTMJ-AM on Friday for the Week in Review segment after 11:00 AM. I’m sure we’ll be discussing the Iowa Caucus results, Trump’s meltdown, and a few other fun items. Either tune in or listen to the podcast after it’s posted.   Print this entry Read More →
