“I’ve been convinced since day one that he would not win in the end,” said...

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The next pivotal point in American politics is custom-built for protest candidates. That, as much as anything, explains why Sen. Bernie Sanders and scaremongering billionaire Donald Trump are leading in New Hampshire primary polls by wide margins.


At the same time, the biggest risk for...

아이오와가 전세계와 트럼프에게 충격을 주다

(0) Comments | Posted February 2, 2016 | 3:27 PM

결국 놀랄 일이 생기지 않았다는 게 놀라웠다. 대부분 복음주의 크리스천들인 아이오와 주의 공화당원들은 복음주의 크리스천을 선택했다. 테드 크루즈 텍사스 상원 의원이다.

동시에 솔직하고 분별있는 유권자들은 후보들 중 새로운 스타를 뽑았다. 비교적 온건하고 사진이 잘 받는 플로리다의 젊은 상원 의원 마르코 루비오다.

Iowa sorprende al mundo (y a Trump)

(1) Comments | Posted February 2, 2016 | 6:50 AM

Al final, fue una sorpresa que no sorprendió a nadie: los republicanos de Iowa, que son, en su mayoría, cristianos evangelistas, eligieron a un cristiano evangelista, el senador de Texas Ted Cruz.

Al mismo tiempo, los sensatos votantes de Iowa también vieron nacer a una nueva estrella:...

Το μπερδεμένο μήνυμα των προκριματικών στην Αϊόβα

(1) Comments | Posted February 1, 2016 | 7:51 PM

Ντε Μόιν, Αϊόβα- Εάν τα προγνωστικά της εφημερίδας “Des Moines Register” είναι σωστά -και είναι σπανίως λανθασμένα- ο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ και η Χίλαρι Κλίντον θα κερδίσουν στις προκριματικές εκλογές της Δευτέρας στην Αϊόβα.

Εάν συμβεί αυτό, το μήνυμα που θα βγει από την Αϊόβα θα είναι πολύ μπερδεμένο.

아이오와 여론조사의 상반된 메시지 | 독재자냐 강한 여성이냐

(3) Comments | Posted February 1, 2016 | 5:49 PM

디모인 레지스터의 예측이 정확하다면 - 그들은 틀리는 일이 거의 없다 - 월요일 아이오와 전당대회에서 도널드 트럼프와 힐러리 클린턴이 승리할 것이다.

그렇게 된다면 아이오와의 메시지는 정말 혼란스러울 것이다.

공화당원들은 현대에 들어 가장 특이하고 충격적인 후보를 고른 셈이 될 테고, 민주당원들은 가장 전통적이고 전형적인 후보를 고른 셈이 된다.

만약 이 결과가 2016년...

El confuso mensaje de Iowa: ¿el más radical o la más tradicional?

(0) Comments | Posted February 1, 2016 | 6:39 AM

Si el oráculo de los sondeos de Des Moines (Iowa, EE UU) no se equivoca —y rara vez lo hace—, Donald Trump y Hillary Clinton ganarán los caucus (asambleas electivas) de Iowa este lunes.

Y si esto ocurre, el mensaje será, como poco, contradictorio.

Hello from the High Life Lounge and El Bait Shop, down by the river in Des Moines, Iowa. It's our favorite purpose-built dive bar cafe. The cheap panelling and old Schlitz signs recall "Starsky and Hutch" but the place opened in 2006, just as the Obama team brought irony...
