    Had at least one event in all 99 Iowa counties. His presence there was massive.

    Sixty percent of the Republican vote in Iowa last night went for two Hispanics and an African-American, and 100% of the Democrat vote went for a couple of tired, old, decrepit white people. ---------------------- Borrowed from a friend of mine .

    Then why are the Dems clobbering the Repubs among "non-white voters" in election after election? (Hint: It has to do with party platform.)

    IMO there is nothing "Hispanic" about Sen Cruz other than his surname.

    I thought it was going to be his only hurrah until he knocked 25 points off Hill's lead in two months.

    Call it anything you want but those 90-10 and 70-30 splits show no signs of going away anytime soon.

    By the way, "smaller federal government" is code for "states' rights."

    Programs. Let's have more programs. Who do we need to cater to? Let's have more programs.'
    You're rhetoric doesn't change much. And I have a feeling that this election, regardless of the ballot will be a record turnout. Just a hunch. I guess the Rs should pray it's not minorities or women, huh?

    Actually, the GOP is targeting minorities and college kids in its voter-suppression efforts. If they could figure out a way to also include women, I'm sure they would.

    I don't believe Republicans have to offer more/bigger programs to win women and minority voters over, but they have to take those groups and the issues they care about seriously. Thus far, it's been more lucrative to disparage them. As Dick Armey said "you can't call her ugly all year and expect her to go to prom with you."
