Video: Telos President Tries To Claim Polling Wasn't Politically Motivated, Promptly Fails

Tonight Chris Berg interviewed Todd Reisenauer, the head of Telos Associates, the company behind that polling released on left wing talker Joel Heitkamp’s show earlier this week (video below). The result was a metaphorical clown car full of sweaty, anxious failure driven directly into a ditch where it promptly caught on fire. Berg grilled Reisenauer

Democrats Pulled A Fast One On The Fargo Forum With Polling Story

So yesterday left wing talk radio blabber Joel Heitkamp was pushing some polling results which showed that Fargo businessman Doug Burgum – a man Democrats really, really want to run for governor for various reasons – was positioned to win a statewide contest. It seemed to me a rather obvious ploy to try and lure

NDGOP Statewide Candidates Cash Advantage, But Dems Close In Ag Commission Race

The candidates for statewide office in North Dakota have filed the pre-general general election reports, and to the extent that fundraising can tell us anything, it appears as though most Republican candidates have a pretty major advantage over Democrats heading into November. Here’s a breakdown of the numbers from the pre-general reports. All Republicans vs.

North Dakota Republicans Cleaning Up Newspaper Endorsements, But Do They Matter?

I’ll be honest, I’m not sure how much newspaper endorsements matter any more. Maybe they did once upon a time, but I think their value has diminished in this digital age where everyone with a blog, a Facebook page, or a Twitter account can make an endorsement. In North Dakota, particularly, I feel like the

Darlymple: North Dakota Pipeline Capacity Will Cross One Million Barrels Per Day

Governor Jack Dalrymple is hosting a pipeline summit today, and there’s some good news for those concerned about oil shipments crowding the nation’s roads and rails. According to a press release sent out by Dalrymple’s office, by the end of 2014 “the state’s capacity to ship crude oil to market by pipeline is expected to

Obama's Anti-Pipeline Stance Hurting Democrats In North Dakota As Union Backs Republicans

Labor unions are normally the staunch political allies of Democrats, but in North Dakota one union is throwing its weight behind Republican candidates. The reason? Pipelines. “We believe the North Dakota Public Service Commission is working hard to address oil production issues affecting the state and to balance the needs of landowners, producers, and other state

Thoughts On The North Dakota Primary Election Results: Republicans Had 75 Percent Vote Advantage

Last night North Dakota held its statewide primary election. The June election can be a difficult one to figure. The turnout is always lower than other elections, particularly in midterm election cycles, and it can be influenced by a few competitive races or compelling ballot measures at the local level. That being said, perhaps we

North Dakota Republican Candidates Have 584% More Campaign Cash Than Democrats

Earlier in this election cycle I’ve written about the advantage North Dakota Democrats have over the NDGOP when it comes to fundraising at the party level. But I’ve noted in those posts that because Republicans have so many incumbent candidates – every single statewide office, in fact – that party fundraising numbers don’t really give

Commissioner Brian Kalk Continues To Be The Most Aggressive Campaigner In North Dakota

Usually when candidates for North Dakota’s statewide ballot announce their campaigns they hit a couple or all of the state’s largest cities. Usually Bismarck and Fargo, with one or both of Minot and Grand Forks thrown in. Sometimes they’ll also announce from whatever smaller town they’re from too. But Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk, who

Poll: ND Republicans Have Big Leads Over Dems, Over 83% Say State Is On Right Track

The folks at the Brighter Future Alliance – a 501c4 non-profit committed to promoting the free enterprise system and pro energy development public policy, as they describe themselves – sent me results of polling they’ve conducted in some of North Dakota’s statewide races that will be on the ballot in November. I referred to some of it
