Winning by losing

03/14/12 04:41PM

Mitt Romney is confident today that he can win the nomination, even as he loses two key primary races.This whole winning by losing thing is hard for most people to understand. Former Senior Adviser to President George W. Bush Mark McKinnon said that Mitt Romney looked nothing like a winner after last night's primary losses. "Last night was one big hot mess... and Mitt Romney was the Biggest Loser!... the chaos in his Republican party will lead to a stronger, 3rd party candidate in November." Here's the full segment: What do you think? Is there still time or room for another contender here? read more

NOW Today: What did last night mean?

03/14/12 06:50AM

Yesterday we wrote that last night's primary contests could be the most important to date in the 2012 nominating convention.  And that may be true.This morning there is a little more clarity, but still no clear pick for the Republican nominee.  The easiest point to make is that Newt Gingrich's loss in both Alabama and Mississippi means he'll face increasing calls to drop out of the race.  Gingrich says he won't, insisting that he's got a shot on the convention floor in Tampa.  But that scenario appears increasingly unlikely - Gingrich benefiting from floor moves, that is. read more

Block the Vote

03/13/12 04:17PM

Americans are more likely to be struck by lightening than commit voter fraud. So why is there such a big push to pass tough voter identification laws? There are numerous bills out there on this issue. Critics say the laws would deter millions of Americans - particularly minorities - from voting.Michael Waldman from the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU explains what these laws are - and why they are proving unnecessary, and unconstitutional. read more

NOW Today: The most important to date

03/13/12 06:52AM

Is it or isn't it?That is, is it or isn't it a three way race? Everyone seems to have a different opinion about the state of the 2012 race, but most observers will tell you that - while it sounds like a broken record - tonight's contests are the most important to date. Why? For Newt Gingrich, a loss in these Deep South states would mean his "Southern Strategy" failed (with the exception of his home state ofGeorgia).  Losses by Mitt Romney would drive the narrative that the former Massachusetts governor cannot connect with a key base of the party. read more
