You know, it's a funny thing. Every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob? What is the matter with them? I suppose it is because most of them are psychiatrists.

Monmouth Iowa poll:

When Iowa Republicans are asked who they would support in their local caucus, Ben Carson (23%) and Donald Trump (23%) tie for the top spot. The next tier of candidates includes Carly Fiorina (10%) and Ted Cruz (9%), followed by Scott Walker (7%), Jeb Bush (5%), John Kasich (4%), Marco Rubio (4%), and Rand Paul (3%). The last two Iowa caucus victors, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, each garner 2% of the vote. None of the other six candidates included in the poll register more than 1% support.

“These results mark a significant shake-up in the leaderboard from Monmouth’s Iowa poll taken before the first debate,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute in West Long Branch, NJ. “Carson and, to a lesser extent, Fiorina have surged, while Walker has faded into the background.” 

Winners And Losers Of August:

August’s big winner has to be Donald Trump: although the month began with Mr. Trump holding in a commanding lead in the polls, a lack of optimism by many in the media made it tough to take his campaign seriously.  Most pundits believed he would falter in the first debate, and even after the first debate he was almost unanimously derided in the media as a poor performer.  Alas, Mr. Trump’s resilience has been impressive–he exits August with an even more commanding lead over the rest of the field, a huge publicity advantage, and the dominant position in terms framing issues that are defining this election’s campaign.

The big losers of August have to start with Jeb Bush and Scott Walker.  Both Bush and Walker were vying for the second spot behind Trump at the beginning of August, and both are viewed as serious and legitimate GOP stars with political experience–lauded and supported by the media as front-runners for the GOP nomination.  Then came the GOP debate, and the dominance of Donald Trump, and both seemed to fade.  Both candidates were underwhelming in the debates, showing remarkably little desire to seize the limelight.  The results have not been surprising: both candidates received lukewarm to negative reactions, and finished near the bottom in terms of search interest.  As the “smoke clears” after the GOP debate, both candidates seem to have taken a backseat to the dominance of Donald Trump.

Fiorina, once an afterthought in GOP race, fends off attacks and fights for a debate slot.

Steve Schmidt: Donald Trump 'emasculating' Jeb Bush:

"Look, Jeb Bush was a very successful governor, he's a thoughtful man, he was a good, conservative governor. But every day, Donald Trump is emasculating Jeb Bush, and Republican primary voters are not going to default to the establishment candidate who is being weakened by these attacks that go unresponded to."

Trump has regularly mocked Bush for being a "low-energy person" but still a "nice guy," while the former governor has responded by criticizing Trump's immigration plan as unrealistic and insufficiently conservative.

John Kasich is upset over Obama renaming Mt. McKinley.
