NBC News/WSJ/Marist Poll: Hillary Clinton Barely Ahead of Sanders in California 49% to 47% … What If Hillary Loses CA?
CALIFORNIA DREAMING: SIMPLY AMAZING, CLINTON CANNOT SHAKE SOCIALIST SANDERS …
Just ahead of the California Democrat primary, a recent NBC News/WSJ/Marist poll has Hillary Clinton ahead of Bernie Sanders by a mere 2 points among likely voters, 49% to 47%. The poll results are within the margin of error. UNREAL. Even more amazing, among a wider electorate of all potential Democratic voters in California, the self-proclaimed socialist Sanders is actually ahead of Clinton by one point, 48 percent to 47 percent. In 2008, Clinton defeated Obama in the Democrat primary in California, 51% to 43%. In 2016 Hillary is under-performing. It is hard to believe at this point that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee, is struggling so badly and is in a neck and neck race in California and limping over the finish line. If she loses California, what are Democrats to do?
Hillary Clinton is clinging to a narrow two-point lead over Bernie Sanders in California ahead of the state’s June 7 primary, according to results from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.
Clinton gets support from 49 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the state, while Sanders gets 47 percent, which is within the survey’s statistical margin of error.
And among a wider electorate of all potential Democratic voters in California, Sanders is actually ahead by one point, 48 percent to 47 percent.
Clinton and Sanders running even in California wouldn’t affect the overall delegate math in the Democratic race, where Clinton leads Sanders by some 270 pledged delegates and 770 overall delegates. (A tied race would essentially split the state’s 475 pledged delegates right down the middle under the Democrats’ proportional allocation system.)
There is now more than a theoretical chance that Hillary Clinton may not be the Democratic nominee for president.
How could that happen, given that her nomination has been considered a sure thing by virtually everyone in the media and in the party itself? Consider the possibilities.
The inevitability behind Mrs. Clinton’s nomination will be in large measure eviscerated if she loses the June 7 California primary to Bernie Sanders. That could well happen.
A Sanders win in California would powerfully underscore Mrs. Clinton’s weakness as a candidate in the general election. Democratic superdelegates—chosen by the party establishment and overwhelmingly backing Mrs. Clinton, 543-44—would seriously question whether they should continue to stand behind her candidacy.
48% of Voters Believe Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Private Email server While Serving as Secretary of State was Illegal
HILLARY’S EMAIL SCANDAL CONTINUES TO PLAGUE HER …
In a recent poll, 48% of voter believed that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State was illegal and a major problem for her campaign. According to the poll, 48% stated it was a major issue for her campaign, while 18% of Hillary true believers said it was not an issue at all but think that Watergate was a big issue. Folks wake up … what Hillary Clinton did was illegal, put the USA at great risk and was purposely done to hide info from the American people under the Freedom of Information Act or FOIA. This was a purposeful act on her part and frankly, she should be disqualified from running for president. Normally, We the People, are dismayed by politicians who become president and get caught up in lies and scandals. Hillary Clinton already has that beat.
Half of all voters think that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State was illegal, according to a new Morning Consult poll released Wednesday.
Meanwhile, 27 percent say they’re not sure if it was legal or not, and 22 percent believe it was legal. And 20 percent said the practice was ethical.
Nearly half of voters polled, 48 percent, see her use of a private server as a major problem for the campaign, while 24 percent see it as a minor one. Eighteen percent said it isn’t a problem at all.
THIS IS HARDLY A POSITIVE SIGN …
A new Pew Research Center analysis shows that for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were living with their parents rather than with a spouse, partner, roomie or on their own. In 2014, about 32.1% of 18- to 34-year-olds lived with their parents and only 31.6% lived with a significant other, down about 30 points from 1960. It appears to not just be an American thing, its happening abroad as well.
Broad demographic shifts in marital status, educational attainment and employment have transformed the way young adults in the U.S. are living, and a new Pew Research Center analysis of census data highlights the implications of these changes for the most basic element of their lives – where they call home. In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household. 1
This turn of events is fueled primarily by the dramatic drop in the share of young Americans who are choosing to settle down romantically before age 35. Dating back to 1880, the most common living arrangement among young adults has been living with a romantic partner, whether a spouse or a significant other. This type of arrangement peaked around 1960, when 62% of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, and only one-in-five were living with their parents. 2
By 2014, 31.6% of young adults were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, below the share living in the home of their parent(s) (32.1%). Some 14% of young adults were heading up a household in which they lived alone, were a single parent or lived with one or more roommates. The remaining 22% lived in the home of another family member (such as a grandparent, in-law or sibling), a non-relative, or in group quarters (college dormitories fall into this category)
ITS ALL ABOUT THE TRENDING …
For the first time the Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows Donald Trump up 0.4 points over Hillary Clinton. The score is Trump 44.0, Clinton 43.6. This erases a 20 point lead that Hillary had back in July 2015. And more recently, an 11 point lead Hillary had over Trump in March 23, 2016. It is obvious that Trump is surging and trending up, while Hillary is falling. This has to bring panic to Team Hillary and the DNC as Trump is solidifying support behind him while the Democrats become more and more divided and violent as Bernie Sanders vows to fight on to the convention. So MSM, which party is having a civil war again?
The polls in play that show either Trump surging into the lead or making up a great deal of ground on the struggling Hillary Clinton are as follows.
As Don Surber opines, “Remember how Charles Krauthammer said if Trump won the nomination he could lose like Goldwater? National polls today confirm that once again, Krauthammer may have gotten Trump’s chances wrong again.”
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.”
