  • Where Does Christie Stand With GOP Voters?

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, once considered a formidable contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, tracks in the lower tier of GOP hopefuls now that he has made his candidacy official.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 24% of Likely Republican Voters think Christie is likely to end up being the GOP presidential nominee next year. That includes only six percent (6%) who say it is Very Likely. Sixty-three percent (63%) say Christie is unlikely to be the nominee, including 25% who feel it is Not At All Likely. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Cuba Out, New Cold War In?

    Today one of the final chapters in the U.S.-Soviet Cold War comes nearer to a close with President Obama’s announcement that the United States and Cuba are opening embassies in each other’s country. America has been diplomatically estranged from Cuba for over 50 years since Communist dictator Fidel Castro came to power on the island 90 miles off the coast of Florida.

    While the world lived under a constant threat of nuclear annihilation during the 45-year Cold War, perhaps the closest call came during the 1963 Cuban missile crisis when President John F. Kennedy stood up to and stopped Soviet efforts to install attack missiles on Cuba. It was Kennedy’s finest hour and a span of days that few Americans living then will ever forget.
