#NeverCoup

Republican leaders seeking an alternative to Cruz or Trump are living in a dangerous fantasyland.

Why Jeb Bush’s Endorsement Is A Game-Changer For Cruz

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, March 23, 2016

The endorsement of Ted Cruz by Jeb Bush today had a surprisingly enthusiastic tone, with Bush calling Cruz “a consistent, principled, conservative who has shown he can unite the party.” But beyond the positive language, the Bush endorsement is Cruz’s most significant to date for many reasons.

The Insane Campaign Of John Kasich

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

The GOP primary is a battle between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. This has been fairly obvious since at least Super Tuesday, and it is overwhelmingly obvious today.

The Republicans’ Rotten Boroughs

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Before the passage of England’s Reform Laws in 1832 that changed district boundaries and rules for the House of Commons, England’s politics had become notorious for so-called rotten boroughs.

Rubio And Cruz Gambled Against Trump And Came Up Snake Eyes

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, February 24, 2016

I know this will come as a shock to many NRO readers, but a state built on glitz and legalized casino gambling, a state where prostitution is legal in several counties and one where one of the candidates who exemplifies the aforementioned characteristics has his name on the tallest residential building, isn’t necessarily the state that is likely to be an electoral stronghold for family-values Republicans or traditional conservatives—or frankly anyone not named Donald J. Trump.

A Three-Man Race After South Carolina: What We Learned

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Sunday, February 21, 2016

Obviously, at a most basic level Trump was a winner here, and the decisiveness of his ten-point win shouldn’t be minimized. He is clearly the front-runner in the race right now and he looks to have won all of South Carolina’s delegates. On the other hand, it is not just attempting to paint a bright picture for the Trump alternatives to say that Trump’s results showed he is still quite beatable.

Rubio’s Endorsement By Gov. Haley Has Risks And Rewards

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Marco Rubio’s endorsement by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, while obviously great news for his campaign, also raises the stakes for him in South Carolina. Rubio is currently in a tight race with Ted Cruz for 2nd place in that state, while attempting to fight off establishment challenges from Jeb Bush and John Kasich.

Armageddon For The GOP Establishment

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, February 10, 2016

The night could have gone worse for the GOP establishment—but I’m not really sure how. Not only did Donald Trump win an overwhelming victory in New Hampshire, but the establishment lane of viable candidates got more crowded than it had been going in. And remember that since the current primary calendar was inaugurated in 1976, no GOP nominee has ever emerged without winning Iowa or New Hampshire.

Christie Bests Rubio In GOP Debate While Cruz And Trump Coast

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Sunday, February 7, 2016

Why isn’t Chris Christie among the frontrunners? Even if intellectually I know why Christie hasn’t broken out, I can’t help but wonder that after watching the last debate before the New Hampshire Primary. Christie provided one of those moments that reminds you of how much talent he has, at his best, as a retail politician and leader—and frankly it’s a sign of the depth of talent in the 2016 GOP field that he hasn’t been able to firmly establish his position.

A Deep Dive Into The Iowa Caucus Results: What Have We Really Learned?

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Now that the initial post-Iowa furor has died down, I’ve had a chance to take a deeper dive into the exit polls and overall voting results. A few things stand out. Cruz was incredibly consistent across the state, showcasing his outstanding organization. He won 59 of Iowa’s 99 counties and finished in the top two in 93 of them.
