Students and panelists discuss the results of the Iowa Caucuses

first_imgAs the road to the White House kicked off in Iowa, students gathered at Tommy’s Place to follow the presidential contenders as they vied for caucus-goers in a live analysis and panel discussion.The event, which featured panelists including former California State Sen. Tony Strickland, former Democratic Assemblywoman Cindy Montañez, USC College Democrats Vice President Nick Germain and second year USC Gould School of Law student and Republican Chase Bakaly, focused on the impact Iowa will have on the race going forward.The discussion, moderated by Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics Director Dan Schnur and Daily Trojan Managing Editor Emma Peplow, began with predictions about what the caucus results would mean for the remainder of primary elections. Strickland predicted that Sen. Ted Cruz had the most at stake in the Republican race, highlighting the importance that Iowa will play in determining each party’s nominee.““If [Cruz] is not successful here, I don’t see how he can pull off the nomination moving forward,” Strickland said. “If he can’t win in Iowa, it will be hard to see where he does win — other than in Texas.”Germain noted that the results of the Democratic race might very well be determined by college-aged students.“We see the establishment behind Clinton and progressives behind Sanders,” Germain said. “It depends how many college kids and high school seniors get out to vote.”As early entrance polls came in showing Sen. Cruz and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leading in Republican and Democratic polls, respectively, the panel discussed the rise of anti-establishment candidates. Strickland attributed the popularity of candidates like Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders to dissatisfaction on both sides of the aisle with regard to how things are done in Washington.“I think the American people want something new,” Strickland said. “If you’re talking to a Democrat, they want someone more progressive. If you’re talking to a Republican, they want someone who is actually going to get things done.”Montañez echoed these sentiments, emphasizing the important role new voters will play in the outcome of the caucus.“The establishment helps determine elections in many different ways,” Montanez said. “The only way we change that is by getting new voters to polling locations.”The panelists discussed what they described as a “civil war” within the Republican party, noting the distinctions between candidates such as Sen. Marco Rubio and Trump. Bakaly noted how Trump’s lead in Iowa could mark a change in the Republican party’s strategy moving forward.“Cruz is running a traditional campaign, but Trump has only been to Iowa a handful of times,” Bakaly said. “We might see that the traditional way Republicans have won Iowa might be over if Trump wins.”Strickland credited Trump’s substantial lead in the Republican party to opponents underestimating his popularity, cautioning Democrats against hoping that the Democratic candidate faces him in the general elections.“I would argue that Donald Trump doesn’t have a Republican brand — he has a Trump brand that is not Republican,” Strickland said. “He has marketed his brand, Trump, as success.”Looking forward to New Hampshire, the panel made predictions regarding what they think the parties will focus on going forward.“From the Republican side in New Hampshire, it’s important to focus on if Marco Rubio can maintain the momentum,” Peplow said. “From the Democratic side, I’d be interested to see if Bernie Sanders can poll as closely to Hillary Clinton and keep up the grassroots support.”Of the approximately 80 students in attendance, some said they had already decided who they will vote for. Petra Reyes, a sophomore majoring in political science who said she will vote for Sen. Sanders in the primary, said Sanders has the most to gain from the Iowa caucus .“I think [Sanders] has a lot to gain if he wins Iowa, similarly to how Barack Obama won Iowa in 2008,” Reyes said. “It propelled him forward throughout the rest of the primaries.”Luke Phillips, a senior majoring in international relations who has decided to vote for Sen. Marco Rubio in the primary, said he was not surprised by the early poll outcomes.“The fact that Marco is trailing at third doesn’t surprise me at all,” Phillips said. “I don’t think the winners in the primaries are going to be the thing that determines who advances to the general election.”last_img read more


first_imgPaul in his walker.A little boy who couldn’t walk a year ago is now refusing to allow his mother to park her car in disabled bays – because he is standing on his own two feet.Brave Paul Doherty, 6, underwent life-changing surgery in America after the people of Donegal raised more than €70,000 to help fund the operation.Even his hero Daniel O’Donnell backed the campaign and played a concert free-of-charge to help Paul have the Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy surgery. Now almost a year to the day since his surgery, Paul, from Gleneely in Co Donegal, cannot only walk but has a six pack most gym fanatics would be jealous of.His dedicated mum Anne Marie laughs that he now refuses to accept he has any disability.Anne-Marie told Donegal Daily “He told me the other day that he didn’t want me to park in the disabled spot because he can walk now.A selfie at the beach with the Doherty family.“Paul has changed so much since he had the surgery. He cycles outside with his brother and sister, he goes on adventures with them and gets even into more mischief! “None of this would have been possible if it were not the for the support shown to Paul and the countless number of supporters for his Mammy, I Want to Walk fund”“Days spent in a wheelchair are really a thing of the past. His walker is mostly what he uses now. Paul will be seven in a few days. There is a whole lot of growing (and walking) left to do.”As each month has passed, Paul has got steadily stronger. His steps have become more confident and concise. He can walk further and further as each week passes.He achieved a milestone when he walked up to Santa at Christmas to tell him what he wanted and a few weeks later he walked to the Christmas tree on Christmas morning with brother Luke and sister Ava.Mum Anne-Marie and dad Michael know they still have a long road ahead of them and each day brings its own challenges. “He continues to have 5-6 hours of intensive conductive therapy (a type of physiotherapy) each day. Paul has a 6 pack most 30 year old’s would envy. His core strength has improved greatly.“It’s an ongoing journey but we always knew deep down in our hearts that he would make it. He is such a brave boy and in five years he has gone through what most people wouldn’t go through in a lifetime. Nothing can hold him back,” added proud Anne-Marie.BRAVE PAUL SNUBS DISABLED PARKING BAYS AFTER HIS MIRACLE OP! was last modified: March 1st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:disabled parking baysdonegalpaul dohertywlakinglast_img read more
