NBC/WSJ Poll: Donald Trump & Ben Carson Lead GOP Race … Hillary Clinton Loses Ground to Bernie Sanders
THE GOP OUTSIDERS LEAD THE PRESIDENTIAL POLLS …
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.
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.

BERN BABY, BERN … WOW … SANDERS LEADS CLINTON BY 16 POINTS 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.
NO HILLARY, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME AND YOU SHOULD BE JAILED FOR IT …
In an interview with the Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, Hillary Clinton remained unapologetic regarding the use of her private emails and server while she conducted work as the Secretary of State. She claimed “what I did was allowed” and that this was nothing more than a “distraction.” REALLY, so the feds investigate things that are allowed and distractions? NO, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME. Also, her drop in the polls is a direct result of her scandals. Hillary also said that she plans to reintroduce herself to the American people. How does that go Hillary, no my name isn’t Hillary Rob ‘em Clinton and I am not a complete lying sack of garbage? Something like that? She cannot even admit the truth that her campaign has been hurt be the email/server scandal. How else would you explain that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads her in New Hampshire and when voters are asked what words best describes Hillary Clinton, they say liar.
Sorry, this woman belongs in leg-irons, not the presidency.
Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday she does not need to apologize for using a private email account and server while at the State Department because “what I did was allowed.”
In an interview with The Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination also said the lingering questions about her email practices while serving as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state have not damaged her campaign.
“Not at all. It’s a distraction, certainly,” Clinton said. “But it hasn’t in any way affected the plan for our campaign, the efforts we’re making to organize here in Iowa and elsewhere in the country. And I still feel very confident about the organization and the message that my campaign is putting out.”
Yet even in calling the inquiry into how she used email as the nation’s top diplomat a distraction, Clinton played down how it has affected her personally as a candidate.
“As the person who has been at the center of it, not very much,” Clinton said. “I have worked really hard this summer, sticking to my game plan about how I wanted to sort of reintroduce myself to the American people.”
As she has often said in recent weeks, Clinton told AP it would have been a “better choice” for her to use separate email accounts for her personal and public business. “I’ve also tried to not only take responsibility, because it was my decision, but to be as transparent as possible,” Clinton said.
Part of that effort, Clinton said, is answering any questions about her email “in as many different settings as I can.” She noted she has sought for nearly a year to testify before Congress about the issue, and that she is now slated to do so in October.
The one-on-one interview with AP was the second for Clinton in the past four days. On Friday, she did not apologize for using a private email system when asked directly by NBC, “Are you sorry?” Asked Monday by the AP why she won’t directly apologize, Clinton said: “What I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that.
“I did not send or receive any information marked classified,” Clinton said. “I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so.”
Clinton’s efforts to address the email issue comes as her chief rival for the Democratic nomination, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, exits the summer surging in still-quite-early public opinion polls and drawing massive crowds to his rallies and events.
If Hillary Clinton was a Republican the MSM would be calling for her to be put in the stocks.
ARE YOU KIDDING … SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS LEADS HILLARY CLINTON BY 9 IN NEW HAMPSHIRE …
According to the most recent NBC News/Marist poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders has a 11 point lead over Hillary Clinton. That is not a typo folks, a socialist now is the front runner in the Granite state for the Democrat nominee for president. Just two months ago Hillary was up by double digits over Sanders. The more and more Clinton pours money in politics ads into NH, the more she sinks. Just how embarrassing will it be for the Democrat party, if a socialist is their nominee?
Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a nine-point lead over front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and he’s gained ground on her among Iowa voters in the Democratic presidential race, according to a pair of brand-new NBC News/Marist polls.
In New Hampshire, the Vermont senator gets the support of 41 percent of Democratic voters, Clinton gets 32 percent and Vice President Joe Biden gets 16 percent. No other Democratic candidate receives more than 1 percent.
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?
