    December 21, 2015 | 4:23 pm

    Donald Trump would win a hypothetical head-to-head contest against either of his two closest Republican U.S. presidential rivals, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, but he would fall short of beating Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton if the election were held today, according to a...

  • Ben Carson, the nutty neurosurgeon

    By Marty Kaplan

    October 8, 2015 | 3:20 pm

    What does it say about higher education that you can graduate from Yale and still believe that the devil made Darwin do it?  What does it say about medicine, that you can both be a gifted neurosurgeon and also declare, “I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating...

    A week ago we presented here a comparison between two lists of probable 2016 Presidential candidates and our Israel Factor list of desirable 2016 candidates. The idea was simple: both The Fix and Prez16 have lists of "candidates with the best chances" and we have our own list of...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    March 22, 2012 | 8:18 am

    By Shmuel Rosner

    February 21, 2012 | 7:53 am

    For quite some time now, our Israel Factor panel has seemed to believe that of all the GOP candidates Mitt Romney is the best as far as Israel is concerned, and that in a race between Romney and Barack Obama, the former is the better candidate for Israel. But why do they consider...
