Cain Just Ahead of Perry in Texas

In a poll released today, Herman Cain is polling one percentage point ahead of Rick Perry among Texas Republican voters, 27 percent to 26 percent.

The poll, which was conducted by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune, shows Cain and Perry far ahead of the rest of the pack. Ron Paul has 12 percent support, Mitt Romney 9 percent support, and Newt Gingrich is at 8 percent. Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Gary Johnson and Jon Huntsman are at 2 percent or less.

University of Texas professor and poll co-director Daron Shaw told the Texas Tribune that “maybe the most important number is that Cain is up 37 percent to 24 percent among the most conservative voters. Perry wins with every other group.”

Palm Sunday with WFB

The wonderful National Review Institute forum in New York City last month, held on the tenth anniversary of Bill Buckley’s death -- but truly a celebration of his life and legacy -- was captured by the good folks at C-SPAN, who now tell us that two panels of the forum will be broadcast this Sunday on C-SAN 3. ...
