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.
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.”
