Q POLL HAS PRESIDENTIAL RACE NEARLY DEAD EVEN …
This is a rather ominous sign for Hillary Clinton as the most recent Quinnipiac University National Poll has Democrat Hillary Clinton has 42% while Republican Donald Trump is at 40%. Obviously, this poll is within the margin of error and a long ways away from the November 2016 presidential election; however, Trump has barely begun to campaign. And Hillary, who has been on the political landscape for decades is a known commodity. As the MSM likes to say about Trump, maybe it is Hillary who has hit her voting ceiling?
What might be most comical about the poll is that both candidates have high negative ratings and a majority of those polled believe both Clinton and Trump will not make good presidents. Of course that begs the question, then why did people vote for them in the primaries?
Democrat Hillary Clinton has 42 percent to Republican Donald Trump’s 40 percent – too close to call – as American voters say neither candidate would be a good president and that the campaign has increased hatred and prejudice in the nation, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.
This compares to results of a June 1 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University, showing Clinton edging Trump 45 – 41 percent.
When third party candidates are added to today’s survey, Clinton gets 39 percent with Trump at 37 percent. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson gets 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 4 percent.
“The 2016 election has increased the level of hatred and prejudice in the U.S.,” 61 percent of American voters say. Another 34 percent say it has had no impact. Of that 61 percent, 67 percent blame the Trump campaign and 16 percent blame the Clinton campaign.
“It would be difficult to imagine a less flattering from-the-gut reaction to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“This is where we are. Voters find themselves in the middle of a mean-spirited, scorched earth campaign between two candidates they don’t like. And they don’t think either candidate would be a good president.”

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)
