With Donald Trump suddenly whining about Kasich, and predicting doom for the economy, voters in Wisconsin’s open primary may hand Trump a shocking defeat that turns the tide. Scott Ott joins Dave Williams and Amy Chodroff on KLIF-570AM (Dallas-Fort Worth) to consider this, and Hillary Clinton’s Berning sensation.
Democrats are from Mars, Republicans are from…Texas. In this episode of Scott Ott Podcast (#36) ballot questions tell us all we need to know about the two parties. It’s not just how they answer these ballot propositions that gives us a window into the soul of the party, but it’s the actual questions party bosses choose to ask their own people.
If I don’t support the Republican Party’s presidential nominee (e.g. if it’s Donald Trump) am I still a Republican? And what is a Republican anyway? What are the benefits and obligations of membership? We non-Trumpians may have a big decision before us. Episode #35 of Scott Ott Podcast should help us get ready for this political worst-case scenario.
It’s time for Republicans to speak bluntly about the undeniable weakness of Donald “Donny” Trump. On the eve of Super Tuesday, just before the GOP debate in Houston, I gave advice to Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio for hamstringing the pompous blow-hard. Wonder of wonders, they took it. Listen to find out how they can take it further on episode #33 of Scott Ott Podcast.
On the heels of a new round of sniping and squabbling among Republican presidential candidates, I offer a new way to approach the whole process…one that could change your frustration to joy. In episode #28 of Scott Ott Podcast, I explain how, “You are the face of liberty. You are the picture of the pursuit of happiness.”

Sarah Palin makes an endorsement speech so bizarre, even Donald Trump seemed a bit creeped out by it. Here’s my insight as a guy who voted for John McCain only because Palin was his running mate. Plus, I just finished reading Trump’s new book, “Crippled America” — which I repeatedly refer to as “Corrupted America” (go figure). Can’t wait to share my impressions with you here in episode #25 of Scott Ott Podcast.
