  • Former Christie Spokesman Declares for Mitt

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The Christie Octopus is still extensive, Save Jerseyans, and you can’t read too much into one personnel story, but there are obvious risks to idling a presidential bid while Bridgegate sorts itself out (if that’s what is indeed happening): talent gets anxious. Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney […]


  • About-Face: Obama Embraces Bain

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Cory Booker (D-Twitter) was for Bain Capital-style venture capital firm before he was against them, Save Jerseyans. An apparent scolding from Barack Obama’s White House affected a change of heart. Good news, Mr. Part-Time Mayor! You can go back to embracing capitalism again. Why? Because after running ads attacking Mitt […]


  • Romney Rocks CPAC and Reps Christie

    Former Presidential Candidate’s Speech Rouses Conservative Crowd and Suggests Leaders – Including Chris Christie – Whom He Believes Are the Party’s Future By James Beattie | The Save Jersey Blog Mitt Romney was given a warm embrace with the crowd chanting “Mitt, Mitt, Mitt!” after a very rousing applause and welcome by South Carolina’s Nikki Haley, a GOP […]


  • Mitt’s Jeep “Lie” Wasn’t

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog As it turns out, the popular political site PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year” for 2012 wasn’t a lie after all, Save Jerseyans. Too bad we can’t get a do-over based on their bad information. You may recall that PolitiFact’s “fact check” determined that Mitt Romney’s infamous Jeep TV Ad was misleading for […]


  • Matt Drudge Declares War on Chris Christie

    We told you, Save Jerseyans: Christie angst is real. Justified or not. I don’t expect any of this to have a major impact on 2013; it could, however, transform the 2016 playing field assuming Chris Christie ultimately decides to play for a shot at the 2016 Republican nomination. The latest evidence? Matt Drudge is using […]


  • The Six Reasons Why Romney Lost and Obama Won

    Cross-Posted from Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot So, you wanna know the “why” of it all, huh? Why or why did this happen? For what it’s worth, here are my top six reasons: 1) Needless GOP bloodshed. The long Republican primary battle was unecessarily contentious and no one epitomized the irrationality of this more than Rick Santorum who […]


  • Justified or Not, Anti-Christie Angst is Real

    In the four years that this website has been operational AND covering Chris Christie, Save Jerseyans, I can’t remember seeing more Republicans rake him over the coals. Anti-Christie angst is moving from the “anecdotal” to the “too many to be anecdotal” realm. I’ve spoken to or interacted through Save Jersey with folks who were confirmed […]



  • POLL: Who Wins Tuesday… Romney? Or Obama?

    Nate Silver and Save Jersey can’t both be right, folks. Everyone’s pretty sure Dick Morris is wrong. Not because I don’t like his outcome! I’m just a realist, and this country has changed a lot since 1980 (we’re much more diverse, and there’s a lot more people living subsisting on the public dime); Barack Obama is […]


  • Final Electoral Projection (No Toss Ups): Romney 320, Obama 218

    One day to go, Save Jerseyans. Building off of our final 11/2/12 projection (without toss ups included), I’ve decided to take a shot in the dark and eliminate leaners/toss ups from our final Save Jersey electoral projection. This is my political nerd version of living dangerously… The same basic methodological rules apply as before. Of […]


  • Like Lemmings Over a Cliff

    One of the most advertised and yet under-analyzed themes of this presidential campaign is President Obama’s slogan “Forward”. It’s been said that Karl Marx used a similar phrase to generate support for his worker’s movement in the 1800’s that resulted in the formation of the Communist Party. Whether Obama and his campaign managers sought to […]
