SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS IS NARROWING THE GAP …
Doesn’t this speak volumes of the Democrat party. According to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has narrowed the gap on Hillary Clinton in polling for the Democratic presidential nominee, 37% to 30%. The Vermont Senator now only trails Hillary by 7. How is this possible? Just how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton, or has the Democrat party finally jumped the shark and truly has become nothing more than a Socialist party? And of course what does it say about the Democrat party in general when we have an open election for the next president of the United States and all the Donkeys can provide as candidates is a liar, a socialist, two unknowns that no one cares about and crazy VP who has not declared whether he is in or out.
Liberal revolutionary Bernie Sanders, riding an updraft of insurgent passion in Iowa, has closed to within 7 points of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.
She’s the first choice of 37 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers; he’s the pick for 30 percent, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll.
But Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May, a trajectory that if sustained puts her at risk of losing again in Iowa, the initial crucible in the presidential nominating contest.

ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS IS DISBELIEF AT TRUMPMENTUM …
In the latest PPP poll in New Hampshire, Donald Trump has pulled away from the GOP field leaving them in his dust. The New Hampshire primary is still a long ways away and not until February 9, 2015, but The Donald is doing his best to crush the competition. Much ti the disbelief and puzzlement of the establishment and GOP machine. It is starting to be become very obvious that that Republicans voters are sick and tired of the lying politicians that have stabbed the electorate one too many times. Look at who is either leading in the polls or surging, its Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson.
PPP’s new New Hampshire poll finds Donald Trump in the strongest position of any poll we’ve done anywhere since he entered the race. Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul. Candidates falling outside the top ten in the state are Rick Perry at 2%, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal all at less than 1%. Everyone does have at least one supporter on this poll.
To give an idea of how fundamentally the contest has shifted over the last four months none of Trump, Kasich, and Fiorina weren’t even included in the horse race question when we last polled the state in April. The candidate who’s made the most cataclysmic drop is Walker- he’s gone from leading at 24% all the way down to 7% in this newest poll.
As for the DEMOCRATS/SOCIALIST in polling in New Hampshire, socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary. What the hell has the Democrat party become? No wonder Democrat political insiders are begging Joe Biden to get in the race to save the embarrassment of actually nominating a self=professed socialist as their parties standard bearer.
There’s been a big shift on the Democratic side since April as well. Bernie Sanders now leads the field in the state with 42% to 35% for Hillary Clinton, 6% for Jim Webb, 4% for Martin O’Malley, 2% for Lincoln Chafee, and 1% for Lawrence Lessig.
The main story in New Hampshire is how universally popular Sanders has become with the Democratic electorate. 78% see him favorably to only 12% with a negative opinion- that makes him easily the most popular candidate on either side with their party’s voters. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton’s favorability numbers have taken a little bit of a hit- she was at 78/10 with Democratic primary voters in April, but now she’s at a 63/25 spread.
The ideological divide is actually not that stark on the Democratic side. Sanders is ahead with ‘somewhat liberal’ voters (45/32), ‘very liberal’ ones (46/37), and moderates (40/36) alike. And although there is certainly a gender gap Sanders is ahead with both men (44/30) and women (41/38). But the real big divide we see is along generational lines- Clinton is ahead 51/34 with seniors, but Sanders has a 45/29 advantage with everyone under the age of 65.
Have They Had Enough .. Are Democrats Turning on Hillary Clinton … Former Dem. Presidential Candidate Dean Says, “As I was watching that tape, I was thinking to myself, this is a lawyerly answer.”
HAVE THE DEMOCRATS HAD ENOUGH OF HILLARY CLINTON AND HAS SHE GONE JUST ONE SCANDAL TOO FAR?
It is is not the GOP that Hillary Clinton needs to worry about, it is the Democrats. Hillary already came to the dance with a lot of baggage, now the current email/private server scandal has gone from a so-called partisan witch hunt to a full scale scandal being investigated by the feds. Hillary sees her poll numbers drop as no one except her true-believers this she is honest or trustworthy. So the question now is, are the Democrats turning on Hillary before its too late?
Enter Joe Biden to rescue the Democrat party, are you kidding me?
What difference does it make if I am incapable of telling the truth?
With the specter of Vice President Joe Biden jumping into the 2016 race for the White House, some prominent figures in the Democratic party seem less sure of Hillary Clinton’s chances at clinching the party’s nomination.
Notable Democrat California Gov. Jerry Brown weighed in Sunday on the possibility of Biden’s run, saying if he were in the vice president’s position, he would give “very serious consideration” to the 2016 contest.
“All I can say is, if I were Hillary, I would say [to Biden], ‘Don’t jump in,’” Brown told NBC News. “If I were Joe Biden, I’d probably give it very serious consideration.”
Joe Biden’s political star has risen in recent weeks, with his national poll numbers climbing despite his unofficial status as a potential candidate. In a move that could signal more earnest consideration of a run, Biden this weekend met privately with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a progressive policy leader of the Democratic party.
Still, Dean questioned the way the former secretary of state has handled the controversy.
“As I was watching that tape, I was thinking to myself, this is a lawyerly answer,” Dean said, seemingly in reference to Clinton’s responses when asked by the press about classified information. “And one of the problems is that Hillary Clinton is an incredibly smart lawyer.”
A Clinton opponent for the Democratic nomination, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, said Sunday that while he’s eager to debate the issues, he considers the GOP’s questions about Clinton’s email server to be “legitimate.”

DEMOCRAT PRIMARY: SOCIALIST GAINS ON LIAR …
In the most recent FOX News poll, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has gained some ground on the presumptive Democrat nominee and ethically challenged Hillary Clinton, 49% to 30%. Although still trailing by a great deal, Sanders has shaved the lead by 10 percentage points as Sanders trailed by 29 in the Jul-2 Aug 15 poll, 51% to 22%. If Hillary Clinton’s struggles continue where the voters believe her to be a liar, it would be long before the socialist Sanders takes the lead in this poll as well. Sanders recently lead a Boston Herald/FPU poll by 7%. Vice President Joe Biden is in third with 10%; however, that may change greatly in the near future if he decides to enter the presidential race as Hillary’s email and ethical challenges continue.
EXIT QUESTION: Will support for Hillary Clinton continue to wane and will Joe Biden enter the race?
Hillary Clinton Thinks That Her Criminal Email Scandal is Just a Joke … Pokes Fun at it and Makes Jokes During a Democrat Dinner in Iowa
I WONDER IF SHE WILL BE LAUGHING FROM BEHIND BARS?
If there was a such thing as equal justice under the law in the United States, Hillary Clinton would not be making jokes about her email scandal and putting the United States security at risk, she would be serving time for breaking federal laws. But sadly we have two sets of laws and punishments for individuals in the US. This is no laughing matter when a government official is allowed to not only break the law, but then cover it up and then joke about it like they did nothing wrong. What has this country come to? Hillary Clinton obviously had something to hide, because no one, and I mean no one goes through this amount of cover up and scrubbing of servers if they did nothing wrong. America, if we are not going to throw her in jail for her crimes, at the very least hot her where it really hurts and deny her becoming president.
Amazing isn’t it to be a Democrat … commit a crime and you get to joke about it. How could anyone this crooked and sleazy ever be considered to be the nominee for a major political party for the Presidency of the United States?
Who would love to wipe the smugness off this woman’s face … prison just might
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton poked fun at her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state while at a dinner in Iowa Friday.
“You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account,” she said at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Wing Ding Dinner. “I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.”
Clinton made the remarks to a packed room of 2,100 at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, as she and four of her rivals for the Democratic nomination appeared. Her remarks came amid a federal investigation into the use of the private server and whether classified information was emailed from her private account.
Clinton has maintained that she never used her private account for emails containing classified information.
Franklin Pierce Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Surges Ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, 44% to 37%
HILLARY CLINTON #FEELS THE BERN …
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.
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.
‘Little House on the Prairie’ Actress Melissa Gilbert To Run for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District as a Democrat
Damn, Laura “Half Pint” Ingalls is a Democrat …
51 year old Laura Ingalls is going to run for Congress in 2016 in Michigan’s 8th District. Melissa Gilbert is going to run as a Democrat in a district that has lately become a GOP stronghold in recent elections. Although Laura Ingalls has not held political office before, which is probably a good thing in this day and age, but she was president of the Screen Actors Guild serving two terms from 2001 to 2005. However, it appears that Melissa Gilbert’s campaign may have difficulties before it begins. In June 2015, the Daily Press & Argus in Livingston County reported that the IRS filed a lien against Gilbert, alleging she owes more than $360,000 in back taxes. Who thinks that Michigan Republicans will use this as political ad fodder and rightfully so. One would think that locals in her district might have an issue with this as well, one would think.
Oh those tax and spend liberals and the hypocrisy of it all.
Actress Melissa Gilbert, best known for her portrayal of Laura Ingalls Wilder on NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” in the 1970s and ‘80s, said Monday she will run for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District — though her campaign will have to tamp down questions about a tax bill.
Gilbert, who lives in Livingston County with her husband, actor Timothy Busfield, is running as a Democrat in a district that has been a Republican stronghold in recent elections: U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, won the race to replace former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Howell, last year, beating Democrat Eric Schertzing, 54%-42%.
But someone with Gilbert’s celebrity could make a splash, especially when it comes to raising funds for her campaign. Bishop was recently added to the Republican’s Patriot Program, an effort to help potentially vulnerable incumbents maintain their seats in Congress, though it’s unclear why he was marked for such aid.
“I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy,” Gilbert said in a statement released on her website, www.gilbertformichigan.com. “I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.”
So is Barack Obama and his minions going to compare Chucky Schumer to hardline Iranians?
The top U.S. Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer has come out and said that he opposes Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. The next in line to become the Democrat Senate Minority leader has gone against the Obama White House and actually done the right thing. Schumer has put America first and Obama second. Its is about time the Democrat party or at least a high ranking Democrat has done so. Also, Representative Eliot L. Engel of New York, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has also opposed the deal. on Friday, Congress, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), said on Friday that he would follow suit and vote against Obama’s naive nuke deal.
Chuck Schumer stated that he will not approve the Iran nuclear dead because “he believes that Iran will not change … “. There is ver little that I agree with Schumer; however, lets give credit where credit is due. However, if this is just a ploy by Schumer, knowing that there are enough liberal, ignorant law makers to approve Obama’s terrible nuke deal for the US, Israel and its Middle East allies, then shame on Schumer.
Senator Chuck Schumer, the most influential Jewish voice in Congress, said Thursday night that he would oppose President Obama’s deal to limit Iran’s nuclear program.
“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Mr. Schumer, Democrat of New York, said in a lengthy statement. “This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”
Mr. Schumer had spent the last several weeks carrying a dog-eared copy of the agreement in his briefcase and meeting with Mr. Obama and officials like Wendy R. Sherman, the deal’s chief negotiator. With his decision, he paves the way for other Democrats on the fence to join Republicans in showing their disapproval.
Claiming September’s vote on whether to support the deal carries similar weight to the 2002 decision to invade Iraq, Obama suggested the soundtrack to both historic moments was the “drumbeat of war.”
And he charged that Republicans who have vowed to defeat the agreement were making “common cause” with hardliners in Iran.
