CNN/ORC Poll: Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton leading in Florida & Ohio Polls

SORRY RUBIO AND KASICH, IF YOU CAN’T WIN YOUR OWN HOME STATE, GET OUT!!!

According to a recent CNN poll Donald Trump is beating Rubio in Florida and Kasich in Ohio. In Ohio, Trump is ahead with 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%. And in Florida, Trump holds and even bigger lead with 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.

Donald Trump thumbs up

Donald Trump is leading two of his Republican presidential rivals in their home states, topping Sen. Marco Rubio in Florida and Gov. John Kasich in Ohio, new CNN/ORC polls show.

Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, is far ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in both states.

In Ohio, Trump holds 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%.

And in Florida, Trump holds 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.

The results come less than a week from the March 15 contests in Florida and Ohio, as well as Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri. The primaries in 99-delegate Florida and 66-delegate Ohio are particularly critical for Republicans, since both are winner-take-all.

In both states, large majorities say that if their home-state candidate doesn’t win, he should drop out: 71% say Kasich should exit if he loses Ohio, while 66% say Rubio should depart if he loses Florida.

Bernie Sanders Stuns Hillary Clinton and Wins Democrat Michigan Primary 50% – 48%

Hillary feels the Bern in Michigan …

In a stunning turn, or is the “bern” of events last night, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sander defeated Hillary Clinton in the Michigan Democrat primary, 50% to 48%.As the Politico opines, the outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states. Could Hillary Clinton really be in a dog fight the rest of the way with Sanders? Most likely Hillary will win, however, the longer this goes, the more contempt Sanders voters will have for the presumptive, establishment nominee and may not show up to vote in November.

Feel the Bern

This is truly an incredible defeat for Clinton and a motivating victory for Team Sanders as prior to the Michigan primaries, Clinton was leading in the polls by between 20 and 30 points. OUCH!!!

Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection

Bernie Sanders scored one of the biggest victories of his underdog campaign Tuesday by beating Hillary Clinton in Michigan, a delegate-rich state where she led by double digits in the closing days before voting.

The 2-point upset came after both candidates invested time and money in the state, and fuels the argument from Sanders’ camp that he should not be written off after Clinton’s earlier wins.

The outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states — counteracting a knock frequently leveled at him by Clinton allies that he has only performed well in largely white states.

“What tonight means is the Bernie Sanders campaign, the people’s revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution we have been talking about, is strong in every part of the country,” Sanders told reporters in Miami before the race was called. He predicted success in upcoming states, including in the West.

How on Earth is Clinton struggling to put a socialist away in the primary? With her loss in Michigan, could Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania be in play as well? Check out the  Democratic Primary Exit Poll Analysis:

Donald Trump Wins Big in GOP Nevada Caucuses … Trump Wins the Latino Vote

RUBIO AND CRUZ, HOPE WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS NEVADA, STAYS IN VEGAS NEVADA …

Last night Donald Trump easily won the Nevada caucus by more than doubling his second and third place opponents. This is the third straight victory for Trump as he previously won the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. A record turn out showed up for the Nevada caucuses. And it would seem that all demographics voted for Trump.  With 96% of the vote in Trump was dominating the race with 45.9%. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were in a narrow battle for second with Rubio at 23.9% and Cruz at 21.4%.

Donald Trump trounced his rivals in the Nevada caucuses on Tuesday, notching his third consecutive victory and giving the Manhattan mogul even more momentum heading into Super Tuesday next week, when voters in a dozen states will cast their ballots.

Trump’s decisive win, which the Associated Press announced immediately after polls closed, was propelled by an electorate even more enraged than the ones that had swept him to wins in New Hampshire and South Carolina, and a second-place showing in Iowa.

“We love Nevada. We love Nevada,” Trump declared in his victory speech. “You’re going to be proud of your president and you’re going to be even prouder of your country.”

In his post caucus victory speech Trump said, “We weren’t expected to win too much and now we’re winning, winning, winning the country. And soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.” Trump continued to say, “We won the evangelicals. We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” What might be even more astounding is that he won 44% of the Lationos that voted in Nevada. Unbelievable. More than both Cruz and Rubio who are of Latino origin.

Nevada Caucus Latino voters

Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in the delegate count; however, the focus turns to Super Tuesday, March 1 where 13 states will hold their primaries. But it appears that Trump holds the lead in 9 of the 13 states.

CNN/ORC Poll: Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders in a Vrtual Tie Ahead of Nevada Caucuses

HILLARY IN DEEP TROUBLE IN NEVADA …

According to a recent CNN poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie ahead of Saturday’s Nevada caucuses. Hillary Clinton’s Nevada firewall has crumbled.  The poll shows that 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, while 47% support Sanders. The state’s caucuses takes place on Saturday, February 20. Is it possible that Hillary could lose again to someone who was initially believed to be an also-ran? Just how weak a candidate is Hillary Clinton and what is going to happen to her campaign if, or should we say when, the FBI recommends charges for crimes related to her private email server?

Hillary_Bernie

Likely Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada are split almost evenly between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders ahead of Saturday’s caucuses, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

Though Clinton holds an edge over Sanders on handling a range of top issues, the results suggest the extremely close race hinges on divided opinions on the economy.

Overall, 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, 47% Sanders. Both candidates carry their demographic strong points from prior states into Nevada, with Clinton holding an edge among women, while Sanders tops the former secretary of state among voters under age 55.

How it breaks down in Nevada.

“Overall, Clinton holds broad advantages as more trusted on foreign policy, race relations, immigration and health care, but likely caucusgoers are split 48% for Clinton and 47% for Sanders on the economy,” CNN reported. “Among those likely caucusgoers who call the economy their top issue in choosing a candidate, more support Sanders: 52% back him vs. 43% for Clinton.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders Destroyed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 60% – 38% … So Why Are They Leaving the Granite State With a Similar Number of Delegates?

WHEN IS A 22 POINT WIN NOT A WIN … WHEN ITS DEMOCRAT POLITICS OF COURSE.

Self proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed the establishment, super pac candidate Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democrat primary Tuesday night by 22 points. At the end of the evening the vote count of the people of New Hampshire was Sander 60% and Clinton 38%. But get this, after the embarrassing butt kicking Clinton took at the hands of a 74 year old socialist, Hillary Clinton may actually come out ahead in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates. I guess this is what Bernie Sanders was talking about with regards the political process being rigged? Hey Bernie, instead of always whining about campaign money, you might want to look at how delegates are allocated in the Democrat party. Before the primary even began Hillary was ahead with delegates, Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose. And you wonder why the people hate the process. As Legal Insurrection opines … It’s how DEM-ocracy works.

Hillary Clinton_what

What Difference Does it Make if I lose by 22 points, I still win …

Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but she may come out of the state on top in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates.

Here’s why: New Hampshire has 24 Democratic delegates distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives.

According to the Associated Press, the Vermont senator earned at least 13 of the Democratic delegates with 60 percent of the vote in the Granite State. Because New Hampshire isn’t a winner-take-all state, Clinton won at least nine delegates with her 38 percent of the vote. A remaining two delegates have yet to be determined based on popular vote totals, according to AP.

But New Hampshire also has eight Democratic “superdelegates” — party insiders who aren’t bound by the popular vote outcome and can support any candidate they choose. Six of the superdelegates said before Tuesday night’s voting that they plan to support Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July.

That support isn’t binding, though — superdelegates can switch candidates between now and the convention.

Clinton’s Granite State superdelegates include New Hampshire Democratic lawmakers Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Annie Kuster, according to The Hill. One of the undecided superdelegates is Ray Buckley, chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who was barred by state party rules from selecting a candidate prior to the primary in an effort to maintain neutrality.

Bernie Sanders Prevails and G.O.P. Has 3-Way Tie as 3 New Hampshire Towns Vote.

The results are in.

Or, at least, the first results from the tiny New Hampshire towns — Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart’s Location — that practice the time-honored tradition of voting at midnight to claim the distinction of casting the election’s first primary ballots.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont emerged as the Democrats’ big winner of the wee hours on Tuesday, with 17 votes in total, while Hillary Clinton received nine.

On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Donald J. Trump and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio each had nine votes.

In the early, early voting it would appear that Bernie Sanders has raced out to a 17-9 lead over Hillary Clinton.

As for the Republicans it is a much tighter race as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and John Kasich all have 9 votes a piece, followed by Christie with 3, Bush 2, Rubio 2 and Carson and Fiorino with 1.

NH PRIMARIES 2016: Dixville Notch, NH Has Voted: Sanders & Kasich With Early Lead

NH PRIMARIES 2016: EARLY VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED IN DIXVILLE NOTCH …

Just after 12 ‘o clock midnight, the polls opened in the tiny town of Dixville Notch. With all of the vote counted in Dixville Notch, Bernie Sanders defeats Hillary Clinton in a landslide, 4-0. Meanwhile for the Republicans it was a much tighter race as Ohio Gov. John Kasich garnered 3 votes and Donald Trump came in second with 2 votes. Here is an interesting tidbit, it was a second straight shutout loss for Mrs. Clinton, who also failed to get a single Dixville Notch vote in the 2008 primary. Hmm, is this a sign of things to come for Hillary in New Hampshire and the primaries as a whole? Dixville Notch is about 20 miles from the border with Canada and has 9 registered voters who are mostly employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel.

dixville-notch

won the most Republican votes in Dixville Notch early Tuesday morning, while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won all the Democratic votes.

Kasich came away with three while business mogul Donald Trump won two. On the Democratic side, Sanders received four.

The results are a welcome sign for Kasich, whose campaign said he actively reached out to all nine voters who voted early Tuesday near the Canadian border in the first balloting of the New Hampshire primary.

The small groups of voters in the communities of Dixville Notch, Hart’s Location, and Millsfield all participated today in the idealized New Hampshire tradition of voting en masse at midnight when polls open. The votes of those communities — particularly Dixville Notch — are given outsize importance as predictors of who will go on to larger victories in the presidential race.

From This Week: Why are these voters able to cast their ballots so early? Under New Hampshire law, communities that have fewer than 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them once registered voters have cast their ballots, The Boston Globe reports. All nine voters in Dixville Notch are employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, and they voted inside a building on the property.

Poll Conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC Shows Rubio Falling to 4th

THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...

As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.

An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.

The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.

Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.

Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.
