What Political Analysts Are Saying About 2016

Happy 2016! It’s officially an election year. Leading Authorities’ top political analysts are covering the race from every angle, not only hedging bets on who the Republican nominee will be but also commenting more broadly on the state of American politics. Here’s what they’re saying:

  • Charlie Cook wrote about the GOP Stages of Grief in The Cook Political Report, arguing that the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1 and the New Hamp­shire primary on Feb. 8 will “pretty much winnow the field down to a Fi­nal Four,” with a nominee not being announced until later.
  • Dana Perino penned a Fox News opinion piece on her New Year’s resolution: To not let politics strip her of her dignity in 2016, even if it means ignoring “the most egregious provocations in an election year.”
  • In a piece for Roll Call, Stu Rothenberg wrote, there is “close to a 75 percent chance” that the GOP nominee will be either Sen. Ted Cruz or Sen. Marco Rubio.
  • While reviewing 2015, Chuck Todd contributed to an NBC News Report, “In 2015, The Normal Rules of Politics Didn’t Apply,” explaining why 2015 was one of the “craziest years in politics we can remember.”
