WOW, LIKE HE EVER HAD A SHOT OF DOING ANYTHING BUT THROWING THE ELECTION TO HILLARY …
As reported by David French in the National Review, David French is not running for president as an independent. Was it ever really a plausible notion that he could? French went on to say, and I can’t say I do not disagree with his, “Never before have both parties failed so spectacularly, producing two dishonest, deceitful candidates who should be disqualified from running for town council, much less leader of the free world.” That’s about right, but sadly that is what the voters of both parties and independents where allowed to vote did. This is the mess we are stuck with and any effort by Conservatives to run a third party person, unless they can find a way to resurrect Ronald Reagan, will only result in a Hillary Clinton victory.
I’m not the right person to challenge Trump and Hillary, but the path remains open for others. Here is a sentence I never thought I’d type: After days of prayer, reflection, and serious study of the possibilities, I am not going to run as an independent candidate for president of the United States.
I gave it serious thought — as a pretty darn obscure lawyer, writer, and veteran — only because we live in historic times. Never before have both parties failed so spectacularly, producing two dishonest, deceitful candidates who should be disqualified from running for town council, much less leader of the free world. Hillary Clinton lies habitually and changes position on virtually every public issue except for her pro-abortion extremism, and she has a suspicious record of making public decisions that favor donors to the Clinton Foundation. Her signal foreign-policy “achievement” was helping launch a war in Libya that not only cost American lives in Benghazi but also helped transform the nation into ISIS’s latest playpen.
To add to all that, she’s in the middle of an active FBI investigation. If I had handled classified information the way we know she handled classified information, my career would already be over, and the single goal of my life would be persuading the prosecutor to reach a lenient plea bargain. Donald Trump also lies habitually (sometimes minute by minute), and changes position based on his moods. In one breath he claims to support working men and women, and then with the next breath he threatens to destroy our economy through trade wars or by playing games with the full faith and credit of the United States. He believes an American judge — a man born in Indiana who spent months hiding from drug cartels after they’d put a “hit” on him – can’t rule on a case involving Trump University because the judge’s parents emigrated from Mexico.

Donald French was the hand picked candidate by Bill Kristol. What was that jack-ass comment again Bill?
US ACTIVE MILITARY PREFERS TRUMP OVER HILLARY BY 2 TO 1 MARGIN …
In a new poll of active American military personnel, Donald Trump leads by a wide margin to become the next Commander in Chief. The survey of active-duty service members chose Trump over Clinton by a 54% to 25% margin. In fact, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, who has no chance of winning the Democrat primary because of a rigged establishment super delegate process, does better than Clinton in this poll. Interestingly enough as the Daily Caller points out, criticism from the GOP foreign policy establishment pointing out Trump’s inexperience in the field has done little to dissuade active-duty service members from throwing their support behind the real estate tycoon.
In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members’ preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates.
But given only those choices, 21 percent of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting. More than 54 percent of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25 percent said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup.
Democrats overwhelmingly favored Clinton (72 percent to 8 percent) and Republicans overwhelmingly supported Trump (82 percent to 6 percent). Troops who identified as independents slightly favored Trump, by a 40 percent to 32 percent margin.
Female troops favored Clinton over Trump, by a 51 percent to 24 percent margin. Male troops backed Trump over Clinton 57 percent to 22 percent.
Officers were more likely to back Clinton, though still said they’d vote for Trump by a 46 percent to 32 percent tally. Enlisted respondents broke 58 percent to 21 percent for Trump.
The Quinnipiac Poll: Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Dead Even in Florida and PA … Trump Leads in Ohio
HMM, WHO SAID THAT HILLARY CLINTON BEATS TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE?
In a recent Quinnipiac University poll of three battleground states, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a virtual tie in Florida and Pennsylvania; however, Trump leads in the all important state of Ohio. The poll shows that Clinton is up by a single point in both Florida (43%-42%) and Pennsylvania (43%-42%), while Trump leads Clinton in Ohio by 43%-to-39%. So much for the notion by the pundits that say Hillary will beat Trump going away. This is a different kind of presidential election cycle and the general election should be no different.
How will the private email server scandal play an impact is the race?
It’s still early to analyze the general election, but a new poll shows Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in a dead heat in three key swing states: Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
The Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released Tuesday has Clinton up by a single point in both Florida (43%-42%) and Pennsylvania (43%-42%), while Trump leads Clinton in Ohio by 43%-to-39%
“Six months from Election Day, the presidential races between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the three most crucial states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, are too close to call,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll.
Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, by the way, has narrow leads over Trump in all three pivotal states.
The gender and racial gaps are wide in Ohio, where Trump edges Clinton 43 – 39 percent. He leads 51 – 36 percent among men, while she takes women 43 – 36 percent. White voters go Republican 49 – 32 percent, as non-white voters vote Democratic 76 – 14 percent.
The age gap narrows as voters 18 to 34 years old go 43 percent for Clinton and 39 percent for Trump, while voters over 65 go 46 percent for Trump and 40 percent for Clinton.
Independent voters go 40 percent for Trump and 37 percent for Clinton.
Clinton gets a negative 34 – 62 percent favorability, compared to Trump’s negative 36 – 57 percent.
Trump would do a better job than Clinton handling the economy, Ohio voters say 52 – 40 percent. He also would be better on terrorism, voters say 48 – 43 percen

REALLY? ALIENATING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN VOTERS COULD HURT THE GOP IN A GENERAL ELECTION … NO SH*T SHERLOCK!!!
According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, a third of voters would support Donald Trump if he is denied the nomination by the Republican party in a contested convention. HUH? Folks, educate yourself. If Trump garners the necessary delegates to win the GOP nomination for president, no one can block him. Second, if Trump or Cruz do not win the proper amount of delegates to win the parties nomination on the first ballot, they have won nothing. Third, who the hell are you people to say, it’s Trump or you will throw the election to the Democrats? That makes me wonder what you are in the first place? The idea that as Red State opines, ‘Win or Lose, Trump Could Screw The GOP Either Way,’ is just another example of what the establishment Republicans have brought on themselves. They have gone from no way to lose, to just possibly, no way to win.
My position is as follows and I am in no way an establishment Republican supporter; however, truth be told, I am also not a fan of Donald Trump. I do not believe either Trump or Cruz will gain the necessary amount of delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot. That being said, I believe that one way or another, only either of those two should be eventually nominated. If the GOP establishment suddenly comes up with a candidate that never participated in the process and they make that person the nominee, then I would also not vote for the GOP candidate. The party would be blown up and go the way of the Whigs. I would suggest that Trump and Cruz bury the hatchet and form their own third party ticket. I would vote for that. However, if either Trump or Cruz is nominated by the Republican party, I would vote for either one. There is too much at stake for Hillary Clinton to be president. Grow up America and take a good look at who the real enemy is and its not either GOP candidate.
Poll results HERE.
A third of Republican voters who support Donald Trump could turn their backs on their party in November’s presidential election if he is denied the nomination in a contested convention, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The results are bad news for Trump’s rivals as well as party elites opposed to the real estate billionaire, suggesting that an alternative Republican nominee for the Nov. 8 presidential race would have a tougher road against the Democrats.
“If it’s a close election, this is devastating news” for the Republicans, said Donald Green, an expert on election turnout at Columbia University.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted March 30 to April 8 asked Trump’s Republican supporters two questions: if Trump wins the most delegates in the primaries but loses the nomination, what would they do on Election Day, and how would it impact their relationship with the Republican Party?
Sixty-six percent said they would vote for the candidate who eventually wins the nomination, while the remaining third were split between a number of alternatives such as not voting, supporting a third-party candidate, and switching parties and voting for the Democratic nominee.
