NBC News/WSJ/Marist Poll: Hillary Clinton Barely Ahead of Sanders in California 49% to 47% … What If Hillary Loses CA?


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.)

Doug Schoen says, Hillary Clinton might not be the nominee.

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.

Real Clear Politics Average of national polls Has Trump Over Clinton, 44.0% to 43.6%


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.”

NBC/WSJ Poll: Terror Fears Cause Obama’s Poll Numbers to Fall as Americans Realize He is Weak on Terrorism


According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, Barack Obama’s job approval rating is down to 43%, while 51% disapprove.  Making matters worse for Obama, Democrats and Hillary Clinton is that seven-in-10 Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, the highest percentage here since Aug. 2014. Gee America, you are just figuring this out now?

Americans have been rattled by the recent terrorist act in San Bernardino, California and are suddenly realizing that Obama has been all talk and no action when it comes to terrorism. One might call him the JV Commander in chief. Well America, you have no one to blame but yourselves. Obama promised to transform America and he has transformed it into a less safe place thanks to his moronic and weak policies in dealing with terrorism. How’s that ISIS JV team working out for you Mr. President?


The recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., have vaulted terrorism and national security to become the American public’s top concern, and they’ve helped drive President Barack Obama’s job rating to 43 percent — its lowest level in more than a year, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

What’s more, seven-in-10 Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction — the highest percentage here since Aug. 2014.

And 71 percent say the shootings and random acts of violence that have taken place this year — from Charleston, S.C., Oregon and Colorado, to the terrorist shootings in San Bernardino, Calif. — are now are now a permanent part of American life.

“For most of 2015, the country’s mood, and thus the presidential election, was defined by anger and the unevenness of the economic recovery,” says Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, which conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies. “Now that has abruptly changed to fear.”

That kind focus on security and terrorism “is a very different campaign than the one we thought we’d be running,” McInturff adds, referring to the 2016 presidential race.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Political Outsider Ben Carson Surges Into the Lead of National GOP Race with 29%


According to a NBC/WSJ poll, the ultimate outsider and anti-establishment presidential candidate Ben Carson has surged into the lead with 29%, followed by Donald Trump at 23%, Marco Rubio at 11% Ted Cruz at 10% and Jeb Bush at 8%. Also, Carson polls at 50% as to who Republican voters select as their first or second choice. It is becoming apparent in many polls that Carson is trending to be the front-runner for the GOP. Even though, most national polls have shown Trump comfortably ahead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination since July, Carson has recently made strong strides in Iowa polls and some national ones. Also, according to the Politico, Carson is making huge strides in campaign fundraising.

However, how long will it be before the Democrat media complex begin their assault on Carson? Something the liberal MSM never did with Barack Obama when he ran in 2008 or 2012. And will they be called racist for attacking him as many were when they criticized Obama’s policies and liberal agenda?

Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

That’s the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.

Carson’s 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Donald Trump & Ben Carson Lead GOP Race … Hillary Clinton Loses Ground to Bernie Sanders


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.

NBC News:

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.
