HUH? … New McClatchy-Marist Poll, Socialist Bernie Sanders Has landslide Margans over both Donald Trump & Jeb Bush


As reported at The Hill, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41 and also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

I, personally, do not believe Sanders would win any such match up, but this country elected Obama twice so who knows. Also, it almost seems impossible that Sanders is even going to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. But seriously folks, if this is truly what voters believe, then the greatest social, political experiment in democracy known as the United States of America is over.

In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points.

The huge Sanders advantage over Bush is new. In previous match-ups, the polling showed Sanders and Bush running virtually even, with Bush holding a 1-point lead over Sanders in most of the polls. Future polls will be needed to test whether the huge Sanders lead over Bush in the McClatchy poll will be repeated in future polling or whether the McClatchy poll is an outlier.

It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump that could be so huge that he would win a landslide victory in the presidential campaign, with margins that would almost certainly lead Democrats to regain control of the Senate and could help Democrats regain control of the House of Representative — if, of course, the three polls that show Sanders beating Trump by 9 to 12 points reflect final voting in the presidential election.

Listen to Donald Trump’s First Radio Ads of 2016 Presidential Campaign … “Politicians are all talk and no action.”


That is kind of unbelievable if you think about it, this is his first radio ads? Check out the two ads below. If there is anyone who knows marketing and how to get an effective message out to the American people, it id Donald Trump. In an age in which We the People are sick and tired of establishment candidates who are beholden to special interests and lobbyists, and both political parties are just as guilty, along comes Trump riding the wave of an “outside the Beltway” candidate … “Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action.”

The Donald also hits on the hot button issues of jobs, the economy, veterans, the First and Second Amendment, ISIS and illegal immigration … “You can’t have a country without borders.”

Republican presidential contender Donald Trump is releasing his first radio ads of the 2016 campaign.

“Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action,” a woman’s voice reads in an ad first played this morning on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

The voice adds that Trump will “brutally and quickly cut off the head of ISIS” and “stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border. And he will make Mexico pay for it.”

A second ad, targeted at voters in Iowa, features Trump’s voice. “My opponents have no experience in creating jobs or making deals,” he says. “Obamacare is a total disaster. It will be repealed and replaced with something much better,” he continues.

“If the people of Iowa vote for me, you’ll never be disappointed,” he adds.

Democrat Party Presidential Debate Held in Las Vegas, NV … Really, Is This the Best the Democrats Have to Offer?


The Democrat Party Presidential debate was held in Las Vegas, NV last night moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Honestly, it was literally unwatchable. Forget the fact that CNN was in the tank for these Democrat candidates, forget the fact that the socialist and only person within striking distance gave Hillary Clinton a pass on her email/server scandal, forget the fact that all of these Libs would bankrupt an already in debt America with their free-give away plans … Have you really taken a look at these candidates?



Seriously, as I watched the debate last night and looked over the stage of Democrat presidential primary candidates all I could think of was … THAT’S IT? This is the best and the brightest that the Donkey party has to offer America? Lincoln Chafee and O’Malley have no business even being on the stage. At times I think Chafee had no idea if he was in Las Vegas or Providence, RI. Jim Webb looked like he was in a time warp and should have been in a 1950′s debate as his message and military career is completely lost on today’s far Left of center Democrat party. Then there is the 73 year old Socialist Bernie Sanders who comes off as just a lunatic. Really, a major political party has a socialist running for president? Finally, we have the scandal plagued Hillary Clinton. Folks, if Hillary Clinton can not defeat these grade D politicians, she is then completely useless. This is the equivalent of an NFL team playing a high-school team and the announcers actually trying to make you believe the match will actually be a close game.

To make things even more pathetic, all we hear is that crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior for the Democrats. Imagine Biden with all his gaffes being your secret weapon. Note to Democrats and the MSM, after watching that display last night, you can no longer make fun of Donald Trump and the GOP candidates.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Donald Trump & Ben Carson Lead GOP Race … Hillary Clinton Loses Ground to Bernie Sanders


A new NBC/WSJ poll has some interesting trends on both sides of the aisle. On the Republican side, 3 of the 4 leaders of the pack are political outsiders. The poll has Donald Trump at number one with 21%, Ben Carson a close second with 20% and Carly Fiorino and Sen. Marco Rubio with 11%. So why has Ben Carson closed the gap on The Donald? Could it possibly be as opined by Pamela Gellar that, “the emperor has no clothes, and Carson was the only one brave enough to say it, to violate the sharia (‘do not criticize Islam’).” Of course it was Donald Trump who brought the issue of illegals to the political conversation. For some reason establishment candidates have an issue in discussing and taking a stand on the issues that matter to “We the People”.

With the Democrats, scandal plagued Hillary Clinton still leads socialist Bernie Sanders, bit only by a 7% with yet to announce Joe Biden in the race. As Clinton poll numbers tank, she was forced to take to the Sunday talk shows and try to tell the American people that she has been transparent. LOL!!! However, if and when Biden ever does announce his presidential run, the Democrat polls will completely have a shake up with most likely Biden being on top. Imagine that, crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior of the party.

NBC News:

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are running neck and neck in the national Republican presidential horserace, while Carly Fiorina is now tied for third place with Marco Rubio, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

And on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has lost ground to Bernie Sanders — she leads him by just seven points with Joe Biden in the race, and 15 points without the vice president. That’s down from Clinton’s 34-point lead over Sanders in July and her whopping 60-point lead in June.

In the GOP race, Trump is the first choice of 21 percent of Republican primary voters — followed by Carson at 20 percent and Rubio and Fiorina tied at 11 percent each.

CNN/WMUR poll: Socialist Bernie Sander Leads Hillary Clinton 46% to 30% in New Hampshire


According to a recent CNN/WMUR poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 46% to 30% in the Granite state. SANDERS HAS A 16 PERCENTAGE POINT LEAD, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I know it is early, but WOW!!! Clinton’s poll numbers continue to tank amid her email/private server scandal. As the PJ Tatler opines, Hillary Clinton is not even winning woman in New Hampshire. I would appear that the Hillary Clinton is not a sure bet to be the Democrat nominee and its only a matter of time before Joe Biden announced his presidential run so that the Donkey party does not have a 74 year old socialist representing them in a general presidential election in 2016.

Full poll results can be seen HERE.


Sanders has the backing of nearly half of those who say they plan to vote in the first-in-the-nation Democratic primary next year — 46% support him — while just 30% say they back Clinton. Another 14% say they would support Biden, 2% former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, 1% former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and less than half of 1% back former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee or Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig.

Clinton trails Sanders across most demographic groups, with broad gender and ideology divides bolstering Sanders’ run. He holds 56% of male Democratic voters compared with just 20% who back her, while the two are much closer among women, 39% back Sanders, 37% Clinton. Likewise, Sanders holds a 56% to 30% lead among liberals, versus a 37% to 31% race among moderates.


Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Drops Out of 2016 GOP Presidential Race

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker drops out of GOP residential run …

Another governor has dropped out of the GOP presidential primary race. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has ended his bid for the 2016 GOP residential run.  Gov. Walker was originally thought to be a sure fire strong candidate for the Republican party. Boy were the pundits wrong on that one. Then again, the political pundits have been pretty much wrong on everything this political cycle. As stated at the Washington Free Beacon, the Walker campaign finally ended in the  culmination of a stunning downfall from frontrunner to an also-ran in the crowded GOP field.

In a press conference Walker had some party words, “Today I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately.” Walker then had a parting shot at Donald Trump, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.” Hmm, that is rather sour grapes.

Scott Walker

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, whose early glow as a Republican presidential contender was snuffed out with the rise of anti-establishment rivals, announced Monday that he was quitting the race and urged some of his 15 rivals to do the same so the party could unite against the leading candidate, Donald J. Trump.

Mr. Walker’s pointed rebuke of Mr. Trump gave powerful voice to the private fears of many Republicans that the party risked alienating large parts of the electorate — Hispanics, women, immigrants, veterans, and most recently, Muslims — if Mr. Trump continued vilifying or mocking them as part of his overtures to angry and disaffected voters.

Still, Mr. Walker’s exit was not a selfless sacrifice: He was running low on campaign cash, sliding sharply in opinion polls, losing potential donors to rivals and unnerving supporters with a stream of gaffes, like saying he would consider building a wall along the Canadian border.

Appearing ashen and drained at a brief news conference late Monday in Madison, Mr. Walker said the Republican presidential field was too focused on “how bad things are” rather than on “how we can make them better for everyone.” Without naming Mr. Trump, Mr. Walker issued a plea to fellow candidates to coalesce around a different Republican who could offer a more “optimistic” vision and guide the party to a victory next year that, he admitted with sadness in his voice, he could not achieve himself.

With Walker’s snide comments made toward Donald Trump in making the comment that, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner,” does that mean if Donald Trump ever does win by chance the GOP presidential nominee, will Walker endorse him as Trump was made to pledge? 

GOP Debate II: Donald Trump’s Best Liunes and Zingers of the CNN Republican Debate … “He (Obama) Just Doesn’t Have Courage, There is Something Missing From Our President.”

Republican GOP Debate on CNN …

It was the Donald Trump show once again as all of the other GOP candidates tried to knock The Donald off his perch. However, as usual Trump got off some zingers and lines that will be covered by the media in the post-debate analysis. Probably his best ones were pointed at Jeb Bush, especially when he said the following … “Your brother and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama.” Followed up with the disappointment with George W. Bush’s presidency made it impossible to elect a Republican to succeed him: “It was such a disaster those last three months that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.”

Love him, hate him or if you are indifferent, Trump has a point.

The Politco: Trumped: His 14 most memorable debate lines.

Donald Trump did it again. After an explosive first debate in which Trump clashed with the moderators and stole the show, the bomb-throwing frontrunner came out swinging at the second Republican debate in Simi Valley, California, on Wednesday. He dissed Rand Paul (twice), put down George Pataki and hit Jeb Bush with a backhanded compliment. He also had plenty of praise — for himself and his business record.

Here are his 14 most quotable lines from the second Republican debate. (read here)

Donald Trump Fires Back at Jeb Bush: He Should Lead by Example ‘Speaking English’ While in the United States


Donald Trump is tapping into the, this is still America theme, going after Jeb Bush and ripping him a new one as he questioned by Bush would feel the need to speak in Spanish rather than English. Donald Trump said in an interview with Breitbart“I like Jeb, He is a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that feeling? king English while in the United States.” It is just another example of as Hot Air opines, of Jeb Bush losing the primary to win the general election. Many conservatives believe Jeb to be a pro-amnesty sellout, how does speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that belief? But this is Jeb’s way of pandering to the Latino vote. Really Jeb, how about you try if anything pandering to the base of your party?


Trump had harsh words for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in this interview as well and lit into the donor class, all while saying that the “silent majority” in America is waking up and fighting to take back the country from the political class.

Trump also predicted that he will not only win the White House in 2016, but that he will be re-elected in 2020–predicting he will be a two-term president–and that at the end of his eventual eight years in the White House he will be known to all as a “great conservative” just like Ronald Reagan.

“I like Jeb,” Trump said. “He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”

“El hombre no es conservador,” Bush said in Spanish of Trump in Miami, according to the Tampa Bay Times. That means, according to that newspaper, that Bush is saying of Trump: “The man is not conservative.”

“Besides, he tries to personalize everything. If you’re not totally in agreement with him you’re an idiot, or stupid, or don’t have energy, or blah blah blah,” Bush continued in English, according to the Times.

Trump, in his exclusive with Breitbart News, ripped that argument—that somehow he’s not a conservative.

Majority of Americans Support a ‘Criminal Investigation’ of Hillary Clinton’s Emails


A funny thing has happened on the way to Hillary Clinton’s coronation as the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 … a majority of Americans support the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Could this situation have been handled any poorer and it appears that email-gate is going to dog Hillary right through the primaries. Heck, at this point its even money has to whether Hillary will be nominated or jailed. A recent Monmouth University Poll states that 82% of Republicans and 54% of Independents support an investigation, while 66% of Democrats support criminal activity when it comes to US national security. More than Democrats who would support Hillary no matter what crime she committed, I have to question the 18% of Republicans who did not support an investigation. Who are these people and maybe they need to have their GOP card taken away.

Read the full poll HERE.


A one-two punch? The news coverage of Hillary Rodham Clinton is very telling at the moment as the Democratic presidential forerunner faces inquiries about her private email system while she was secretary of state, amid some unstable favorability numbers. “Even though most voters feel Clinton’s intentions may have been acceptable, a majority (52 percent) say that her emails should be subject to a criminal investigation for the potential release of classified material. Another 41 percent say the emails should not be subject to this type of investigation,” notes a Monmouth University Poll released Wednesday. “Most Republicans (82 percent) and a majority of independents (54 percent) support an investigation, while two-thirds (66 percent) of Democrats are opposed.”

In addition, 38 percent overall say Mrs. Clinton “has something to hide”; that includes 68 percent of Republicans, 41 percent of independents and 8 percent of Democrats. More numbers in the Poll du Jour at column’s end.

But of course Hillary Clinton committed no crime, because everyone has their personal email server that they head State Department emails on that they weren’t supposed to and then deleted professionally scrubbed and wiped clean. It happens all the time.

After years of holding herself above the law, telling lie after lie, and months of flat-out obstruction, Hillary Clinton has finally produced to the FBI her server and three thumb drives. Apparently, the server has been professionally wiped clean of any usable information, and the thumb drives contain only what she selectively culled. Myriad criminal offenses apply to this conduct. Anyone with knowledge of government workings has known from inception that Hillary’s communications necessarily would contain classified and national security related information. Thanks to the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community, it is now beyond dispute that she had ultra-Top Secret information and more that should never have left the State Department.

Franklin Pierce Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Surges Ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, 44% to 37%


Just how bad of a presidential candidate is Hillary Clinton for the Democrats? It has finally happened, the most recent Franklin Pierce poll shows that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads Hillary Clinton by 7 percentage points, 44% to 37%. ARE YOU KIDDING? Hillary Clinton is considered by all as the presumptive Democrat nominee to run for president in 2016, but yet she finds herself behind in a poll to a socialist. Is it Hillary’s lack of trustworthiness not much of an issue? However, since when have Democrats cared about their presidents or candidates telling the truth, aka you can keep your doctors, if you like your doctor promise of Obamacare. Or has this email/private server scandal just pushed people from holding their nose when it comes to Clinton, to abandoning her? What would happen if Hillary Clinton actually had a viable competitor in the primaries, rather than a socialist like Sanders? Then again, no one can tell the difference anymore between the Socialist and Democrat parties these days.

Bernie Sanders

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has rocketed past longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, a stunning turn in a race once considered a lock for the former secretary of state, a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows.

Sanders leads Clinton 44-37 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, the first time the heavily favored Clinton has trailed in the 2016 primary campaign, according to the poll of 442 Granite-Staters.

Vice President Joe Biden got 9 percent support in the test primary match-up. The other announced Democrats in the race, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Gov. Jim Webb, barely register at 1 percent or below.

The live interview phone poll was conducted Aug. 7-10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

Clinton is still viewed overwhelmingly by voters as the likely Democratic nominee, but the results suggest she faces an unexpectedly difficult fight to prevent an embarrassing opening loss in the first-in-the-nation primary.
