Reuters/Ipsos: 2016 Presidential Race Tightens in Projected U.S. Electoral College Vote

ITS SLIP, SLIDING AWAY FROM HILLARY CLINTON AS THE POLLS AND ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE TIGHTEN

An election analysis conducted in the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows that the race has tightened considerably over the past few weeks. Hillary has fallen and she can’t get up, both literally and figuratively. Her once insurmountable lead over Donald Trump is all gone and now The Donald has all of the momentum at just the right time.

The RCP average polling in a 4 way race is down to a Hillary 1.1 lead.

Hillary has Fallen and She cant get Up

An election analysis conducted in the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows that the race has tightened considerably over the past few weeks, with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump projected to win Florida, an essential battleground state, if the election were held today.

The project, which is based on a weekly tracking poll of more than 15,000 Americans, shows that the 2016 presidential race could end in a photo finish on Nov. 8, with the major-party candidates running nearly even in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately selects the president.

The States of the Nation project, which delivers a weekly tally of support for the candidates in every state, shows that the race has tightened in several traditional battlegrounds. Pennsylvania has been moved from a likely win for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to a tossup; Ohio has been moved from a tossup to a likely win for Clinton.

And Florida is now considered a likely win for the Republican nominee, with 50 percent support for Trump to 46 percent support for Clinton. If the election were held today, the project estimates that Clinton has a 60 percent chance of winning by 18 electoral votes. Last week, the project estimated that Clinton had a 83 percent chance of winning the election.

In a separate national Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll, Clinton continues to lead Trump by 4 percentage points, and her recent bout with pneumonia doesn’t appear to have scared away her supporters.

Rasmussen Poll: Democrats Want Socialist Bernie Sanders as Hillary Clinton’s Back Up If Health Issues Forced Her to Withdraw

THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY. HELL, I AM NOT EVEN SURE IT IS BILL CLINTON’S DEMOCRAT PARTY EITHER …

A recent Rasmussen poll states that 48% of likely Democrat voters believe that self-proclaimed socialist and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s lone rival in the 2016 Democrat primaries, should be the party’s nominee if for some reason Hillary had to step down due to health issues. According to the poll results, 48% chose Bernie Sanders, Vice President Joe Biden received 22% and 14% opted for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Another 9% wanted some one else.

First, unless Hillary Clinton does a header off the stage during a presidential debate, she will never withdraw as she cares too much about herself and she has waited her entire life for this moment. Two, what does this say about the Democrat party that would want a socialist to be their nominee? Three, Bernie fans would feel the Democrat burn as the party would never select him, if such a situation ever presented itself.

Suppose the unthinkable took place, and Hillary Clinton was forced for health reasons to step down as the Democratic presidential nominee. Who do Democrats think should take her place?

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely Democratic Voters believe Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s primary rival, should be their party’s nominee if health issues forced her out of the race. Twenty-two percent (22%) say Vice President Joe Biden should be the nominee, while only 14% opt for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Nine percent (9%) of Democrats think it should be someone else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Among all likely voters, it’s a closer contest. Thirty-six percent (36%) choose Sanders, 20% Biden and 14% Kaine. But 21% think the Democratic nominee should be someone else.

A plurality (46%) of voters believes the media is giving too much coverage to Clinton’s health issues. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say there’s not enough coverage, while 21% rate the level of coverage as about right.

I really have to wonder who the hell the 46% is above who thinks the media is providing too much coverage to Hillary Clinton’s health issues. Like the health of the individual who would be president is not an important thing especially when she has a history of collapsing, fainting, concussions, blood clots, not being able to climb stairs and generally looking like she is in just poor health. Where is the too much coverage? The media and the America people should be demanding we know her health history.

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Says ‘A Lot More Material’ Coming on US Elections … New Emails Provide “Enough Evidence” to Indict Hillary Clinton (VIDEO)

MORE EMAILS COMING SAYS THE WIKIKEAKS FOUNDER

Julian Assange, Wikileaks founder, told CNN in an interview that his website might release “a lot more material” that pertains to the US presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton, the DNC and liberals are now all waiting for the other shoe to drop. What could the next round of hacked emails look like and how damaging might they be? Assange has said the release Friday was the first in a series and the new emails would provide “enough evidence” to indict Clinton.  Hmm,  think Democrats aren’t squirming right now? Maybe this is why Bernie Sanders backed Hillary like he did, disappointing many of his supporters. For all we know, if these emails contain what the Wikileaks founder says they do, Sanders just might be the Democrat nominee after all.

Just what does Wikileaks have on Hillary Clinton?

Interview with Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release “a lot more material” relevant to the US electoral campaign.

Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers.

However, Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources.

“Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain actors is to make it easier to find out who our sources are,” Assange told CNN.
