    I thought for sure you were a “paid contributer” along with Krauthammer, Williams, Kristal, and Powers…..my mistake.
    .
    Nice job, though. You created a nice little niche regarding camapign news and election updtaes. It was one of your early appearances on Fox that brought me to PD some years back. I like the insight and I think your horse race analogy and analysis are quite effective. You do not make broad (wrong) predictions like Morris and so many others, you simply point out the bvious trends and put them into perspective.

      Wright, Krauthammer, Williams, Kristal, and Powers. Now that is a collection of persons, for sure!

    No, he doesn’t get paid. Though he wishes he did :)

      can I ask you an insider question Jason, do your appearances on Fox affect the number of visitors this site gets, or the number of new posters?

      I just ask as Fox is not known to be watched by many from the left and I remember your old regret that the site moved from covering both sides to be prodimnately right wing, and hard right at that

      (oh and BTW, your appearances make me realise that we pronounce the site differently, you guys say “d-er-by”, we would say “d-ar-by”)

      • Brian H

        “The site didn’t “move” from anything. Those from the left that posted on PD ran away because answering challenging questions and debating the merits of issues without cursing was too much for many of them. Hardly could PD be considered “hard right”. I do not believe Jason is “hard right” and I know for sure Kaiser might take objection to such a claim. For the most part PD has more Paul supporters that frequent the site than any other candidate. I am a Mitt supporter (hardly a member of the hard right if you ask the bloggers in this forum)and I do not know for sure who. if any, are on the Mitt train with me.
        .
        I wish more lefties would post and most of us feel the same.

        • Chris

          sorry Brian, that was rather lazy phrasing from me, I meant as you indicate, the loss of views from both sides, I dont think any contributor is a Democrat and I think the only liberals who post replies tend to be, like me, foreign observers (or in my case, student)

          One reason I come on here is that I like to debate with people who dont agree with me, it challenges me and I hope to challenge in return. Perhaps the lack of polarised views means this site doesn’t descend into the bickering you often see on the CNN blogs for example

          • Brian H

            I agree. I do wish we had more libs who shared their views on PD as you are willing to do. I am in education for a living, so, I know how it feels to be the lone viewpoint surrounded by political opposition. It is nice you are willing to take the heat.

  • The Gallant Gallstone

    I just wonder if this dude gets paid for going on Fox News.

    • dw

      So what if he does? The news is all about entertaining, not real reporting. Political Derby is a fun place to discuss the election. Seems like a good fit. I think it’s cool that Jason gets to share on TV what many viewers probably don’t even know exists.

      • Whodat

        Typical of capitalists! We, the workers, slave away down here at the blog spot while the top dog hob-nobs with the TV elite, being cheered for his expertise and insight. Baloney! We do the work, we should get the credit. Posters of the world unite!

        MEANWHILE, SOME LATE POLLS JUST FLASHED ON FOX:
        .
        NEWEST Quinniac or pac or whatever:
        !
        Newtie 26%
        Romneycare 22%
        DON’T KNOW 19% Third place!!
        Cain Trainwreck 14%
        Perry Who?
        Others zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

        How about adding a “Don’t Know” line to the new PD graph. I think it will continue to rise with these guys!

  • Whodat

    Why doth we quibble and rage
    Over rankings of Jason the sage?
    The polls are so shifty
    To argue ain’t nifty
    T’is merely another day’s page.

    Whoever is on top at this point
    Likely will not be the anoint.
    Because the combined
    Support for these nine
    Is so low, they stink up the joint!

    One word for Jason: Maalox.
    I need it when he’s on the box
    Not that I am balkin’,
    But, I still prefer Malkin
    And the way on liberals she knocks.

  • Rob

    Seems about what I would have expected.

    Troy: You’ve still yet to give a rational reply to anything asked of you recently, even going so far as to ignore responses to avoid having to try so why should anyone give you an answer?

    • http://www.politicalderby.com/ Jason Wright, Editor

      Rob, there are a couple that follow this pattern on PD, but certainly you’ve named one of the most chronic.

    • Troy La Mana

      Because I know where they stand so there is no point in trying to change the unchangeable.

  • Troy La Mana

    Hmmm The composite poll has Cain and Romney at 26%. So why does he drop to third?

    • Brian H

      It is about trend lines, Troy. Cain is a horse in reverse and will likely finish out of the money. Cain is damaged goods due to his inability to demonstrate sophisticated responses on a wide range of issues.

    • dw

      Really, Troy? You should know that Cain is not the establishment choice and even though his polling numbers are basically unchanged since the last report and is still polling at the top, he is failing miserably and should be completely discounted, along with Ron Paul.
      .
      Remember, there are only two candidates in this race: the establishment choice who can do no wrong even though he can’t get more than 27% polling support, and who will resurrect a floundering political party that is still trying to differentiate itself from the DNC, and one other token candidate – most recently, a horse that pretty much everyone said would not even get out of the starting gate.
      .
      /sarcasm, with a hint of truth

      • Brian H

        “he is failing miserably and should be completely discounted, along with Ron Paul.”
        .
        I agree with you 100% on that point, dw.

        • dw

          guess you missed the sarcasm tag, eh, Brian? ;-)
          .
          You know I am not really saying either of those. I was just parroting what others have been saying here and in other forums.
          .
          I still like Cain. And, Ron Paul would be my choice before Romney.

  • Joe W

    What is so wrong about Jack in the box french fries? Why do let Dopey, I mean Ducey jump over Paul? Come on Jason the man is in Second maybe first in Iowa and the same for New Hampshire. Oh and someone wants to say hi. http://www.jackinthebox.com/
