HMM, THE TREND IS ACROSS THE BOARD …
A new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals a shocker that the WAPO hates to admit, Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46% to 44%. Get used to the bias media coverage Donald, they are all in for Hillary.
It’s not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.
Inside the Post’s story about the poll is this paragraph:
“At this point, the two candidates are in a statistical dead heat among registered voters, with Trump favored by 46 percent and Clinton favored by 44 percent. That represents an 11-point shift toward the presumptive Republican nominee since March. Among all adults, Clinton holds a six-point lead (48 percent to 42 percent), down from 18 points in March.”
ANOTHER POLL SHOWING A POSITIVE TREND FOR TRUMP AND A NEGATIVE ONE FOR HILLARY … WHO SAID HE CAN’T WIN?
According to a recent national NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll, Donald Trump continues to cut into the lead of Hillary Clinton, who now only leads by 3 percentage points. Hillary Clinton is limping across the finish line as the establishment and presumptive Democrat nominee struggles to shake the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. The Morning Consult also has Hillary ahead by only 2 percentage points as Trump trends upward.
The scandals are chipping away at her as she struggles to win her parties nomination against an unknown socialist.
Donald Trump continues to cut into Hillary Clinton’s lead nationally, according to a national NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday.
Trump has reduced the 5-point advantage Clinton held last week to just 3 percentage points. But the former secretary of state still leads 48 percent to 45 percent.
Clinton dominates among minority voters. The Democratic front-runner leads Trump by a 75-point margin among black voters, 84 percent to 9 percent, and holds a 37-point advantage among Hispanic voters, 65 percent to 28 percent. Women also favor Clinton, while Trump leads among men and white voters.
Eighty-seven percent of Republicans would back Trump, while just 7 percent would support Clinton. The margin is almost just as large among Democratic voters, with 87 percent favoring Clinton and just 8 percent supporting Trump. The billionaire who often boasts about growing the party holds an 8-point advantage among independents, 44 percent to 36 percent.
While conservative and very conservative voters break for Trump and liberal and very liberal voters sway Clinton’s way, Clinton also leads among moderates by double digits, 53 percent to 39 percent.
The 5 people who are supposedly on Trumps VP list … YAWN!!!
According to Breitbart.com, the following names were relaeled by Ben Carson as possible Rump VP’s … Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate, Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. I just don’t see it. Sorry, Sarah Palin, been there, done that. Chris Christie, seriously? Which one, he or Trump will insult more people? Sen. Ted Cruz? Hmm, way too much vitriol between Trump and Cruz, talk about your Odd Couple. Sen. Marco Rubio, why? I am not even sure he can deliver Florida. As a matter of fact, Trump destroyed Rubio in FLA, so what does he bring to the ticket except establishment politics? Ohio Gov. John Kasich was only in the race as he was campaigning for the job of VP. Ohio is important, but I just can’t stand this mushy middle Republican.
My choice for Trump would be Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
Dr. Ben Carson confirmed five people on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s list of potential vice presidential running mates in a recent interview.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate to John McCain, was one of the five Carson said was on the list. The rest are all former 2016 GOP presidential candidates: Trump’s closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Carson named the VP contenders to the Washington Post during a car ride with his wife Candy to a TV interview. Carson has been traveling as a spokesman for Trump. He has also been placed on a committee working on pinning down a running mate for the real estate mogul turned GOP presumptive presidential nominee.
Candy was noted in the backseat exchange as saying Carson was not on the list. They had been discussing a poll which named Carson as a favorable Trump running mate.

HEY HILLARY … ITS ALL ABOUT THE COAL. CLINTON FEELS THE COAL BERN!!!
Coal country is no longer Clinton country as Hillary Clinton found herself getting her miners hat handed to her by socialist Bernie Sanders in the Democrat West Virginia primary. When the dust steeled Sanders beat Clinton 51% to 36%, a much wider victory than polls had indicated. What a turn of events for Hillary Clinton. In the 2008 Democrat primary, Clinton beat Obama in WV, 67% to 23% and got over 240,000 votes. Flash-forward to 2016 and Hillary received a mere 84,000 votes.
Not so fast Hillary in pivoting to the general election, you still have a socialist on your tail who has now won a remarkable 19 states. It is safe to say that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat nominee, who is limping over the finish line, has no chance of victory in the general election in West Virginia. On the GOP side, Trump wins in WV and Nebraska as he ran unopposed.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democratic primary, NBC News projects, a victory that will add yet more fuel to his argument that he should remain in the race despite badly trailing front runner Hillary Clinton in the overall delegate count.
The win comes one week after Sanders prevailed in Indiana’s Democratic primary and two weeks after Clinton dominated a series of contests in the northeastern United States.
Democrats also voted on Tuesday in a presidential “beauty contest” in Nebraska, although the delegates from that state were all previously assigned during a March 5 caucus. In that contest, Sanders won 15 pledged delegates, compared to 10 for Clinton.
“With this outcome, we now have won primaries and caucuses in 19 states,” Sanders said in a statement after the results were in. “We are in this campaign to win the Democratic nomination and we’re going to stay in the race until the last vote is cast.”
It is hard to believe that Bernie Sanders continues to make political life difficult for Hillary Clinton. An unknown, 74 year old socialist is showing just how weak a candidate Hillary Clinton really is. No one, and I mean no one, including Democrat strategists saw this coming. Not even Bernie Sanders.
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
- Officials expect it to burn for months. On another note, even though the primary isn’t over, Trump and Clinton act as though it is

Daily Commentary – Thursday, May 5, 2016 – Now That Indiana Has Voted, Cruz is Out and How About Kasich?
- Kasich may have even dropped out by the time this commentary airs. Some say he would make a good running mate for Donald Trump
Emotional, thankful, and speaking characteristically off-the-cuff, Ohio Gov. John Kasich suspended his presidential campaign here Wednesday.
“I’ve always said that the Lord has a purpose for me as he has for everyone,” the Columbus-area Republican said at a news conference. “And as I suspend my campaign today, I have renewed faith, deeper faith, that the Lord will show me the way forward and fulfill the purpose of my life.”
Kasich’s departure from the race clears the field for Donald Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee. The governor didn’t mention Trump in his speech, nor did he say whether he plans to endorse the billionaire or reverse his stated opposition to being his running mate.
