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.”
YES ITS WAY TOO EARLY, BUT TRUMP IS TRENDING UP AND HILLARY DOWN …
In the most recent FOX News poll, in a hypothetical match up between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Trumpster leads the truth-challenged Hillary Clinton 45% to 42%. The hypothetical match-up is all but a forgone conclusion, unless Hillary Clinton is indicted. Hard to believe that the Obama administration would do that. What is most remarkable about the poll is that last month, Clinton was up by 48-41 percent. That would be a 10 point swing for the common core educationally challenged.
Donald Trump tops Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, according to a new Fox News Poll that also finds majorities of voters feel both frontrunners lack strong moral values and will say anything to get elected.
Trump has a 45-42 percent edge over Clinton, if the presidential election were held today. That’s within the poll’s margin of sampling error. Last month, Clinton was up by 48-41 percent (April 2016).
Clinton is ahead by 14 points among women (50-36 percent). Yet Trump leads by a larger 22 points among men (55-33 percent).
He also tops Clinton by 37 points (61-24 percent) among whites without a college degree (working-class whites).
THE DONALD’S SCOTUS PICKS ARE IN …
Yesterday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump released his much anticipated list of individuals that he would nominate to replace the dearly departed Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court, if Trump was to be elected president of the United States. The names on the list are as follows: Steven Colloton, Allison Eid, Raymond Gruender, Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, Thomas Lee, Joan Larsen, William Pryor, David Stras, Diane Sykes, Don Willett. Hmm, absent from the list was Sen. Ted Cruz. Trump needed to put forth this list to ease the minds of many on the right as to what kind of justice he would nominate for such an important appointment for years to come.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday released a list of 11 potential picks to replace Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court, a mix of federal and state judges that appeared tailored to win over conservatives still skeptical of his candidacy.
The decision to release such a list is highly unusual for a presidential candidate, and comes as Trump is working to unite a Republican Party fractured by his candidacy and assuage still-skeptical establishment Republicans who question his ability to win a general election.
“I have a lot of people that are conservative that really like me, love everything I stand for, but they really would like to know my view,” Trump said Wednesday in an interview with Fox News, “because perhaps outside of the defense of our country, perhaps the single most important thing the next president is going to have to do is pick Supreme Court justices.”
The list, which featured several prominent names floated repeatedly on conservative wish lists to replace Scalia, won immediate praise from those Trump is trying to win over.
“This list ought to be encouraging to anyone who prioritizes the rule of law, and I congratulate Mr. Trump on making a very significant policy statement about his desire to prioritize the future of the Supreme Court,” said Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network, a group leading the opposition to President Barack’s Obama’s pick to replace Scalia, Merrick Garland.
Trump first said in March that he planned to release a list of potential justices in an effort to ease concerns about his conservative credentials, which had come under attack in the heated Republican primary. Among his critics was Cruz, who ran an ad saying Trump could not be trusted with a Supreme Court nomination.
“Mr. Trump has laid out an impressive list of highly qualified jurists, including Judge Colloton from Iowa, who understand and respect the fundamental principle that the role of the courts is limited and subject to the Constitution and the rule of law,” Grassley released in a statement. “Understanding the types of judges a presidential nominee would select for the Supreme Court is an important step in this debate so the American people can have a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court for the next generation.”

GAME, SET, MATCH ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION … DEMOCRAT ICON BILL CLINTON SOUNDS LIKE DONALD TRUMP.
Simply amazing … My how far the Democrat party has come from the days of Bill Clinton and his eight years in office. Take a good look at the VIDEOS below where the former president discusses his stance on illegal immigration and his efforts to stop it. From Bill Clinton’s 1996 State of the Union comes the following comments, “We are still a nation of immigrants; we should be proud of it. We should honor every legal immigrant here, working hard to become a new citizen. But we are also a nation of laws.” How on earth is Hillary Clinton going to denounce that? Bill Clinton is the elder-statesman of the Democrat party. However, the socialists and uber-leftists in the Democrat party, including Barack Hussein Obama, believe in open borders.
Bill Clinton sounds an awful lot more like Donald Trump than he does Hillary Clinton when it comes to border security. Did you hear Clinton use the word illegal aliens like 5 times. Isn’t that word banned in the Democrat party these days? As one can plainly see, the Democrat party is no longer the party of JFK, hell, it isn’t even the party of Bill Clinton. I can’t wait for the campaign ads and the debates on illegal immigration when Trump throw’s Bill’s words in Hillary’s face.
From RCP comes the following flashback in time to Clinton’s 1996 State of the Union address:
But there are some areas that the federal government should not leave and should address and address strongly. One of these areas is the problem of illegal immigration. After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
Let me be very clear about this: We are still a nation of immigrants; we should be proud of it. We should honor every legal immigrant here, working hard to become a new citizen. But we are also a nation of laws.
The Democrat party has gone from having a president in Bill Clinton in 1996 that would sign an executive order to protect the sovereignty and uphold the laws of the United States to Barack Obama who would have no US borders and destroy America.
ANOTHER POLL SHOWING A POSITIVE TREND FOR TRUMP AND A NEGATIVE ONE FOR HILLARY … WHO SAID HE CAN’T WIN?
According to a recent national NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll, Donald Trump continues to cut into the lead of Hillary Clinton, who now only leads by 3 percentage points. Hillary Clinton is limping across the finish line as the establishment and presumptive Democrat nominee struggles to shake the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. The Morning Consult also has Hillary ahead by only 2 percentage points as Trump trends upward.
The scandals are chipping away at her as she struggles to win her parties nomination against an unknown socialist.
Donald Trump continues to cut into Hillary Clinton’s lead nationally, according to a national NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday.
Trump has reduced the 5-point advantage Clinton held last week to just 3 percentage points. But the former secretary of state still leads 48 percent to 45 percent.
Clinton dominates among minority voters. The Democratic front-runner leads Trump by a 75-point margin among black voters, 84 percent to 9 percent, and holds a 37-point advantage among Hispanic voters, 65 percent to 28 percent. Women also favor Clinton, while Trump leads among men and white voters.
Eighty-seven percent of Republicans would back Trump, while just 7 percent would support Clinton. The margin is almost just as large among Democratic voters, with 87 percent favoring Clinton and just 8 percent supporting Trump. The billionaire who often boasts about growing the party holds an 8-point advantage among independents, 44 percent to 36 percent.
While conservative and very conservative voters break for Trump and liberal and very liberal voters sway Clinton’s way, Clinton also leads among moderates by double digits, 53 percent to 39 percent.
The 5 people who are supposedly on Trumps VP list … YAWN!!!
According to Breitbart.com, the following names were relaeled by Ben Carson as possible Rump VP’s … Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate, Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. I just don’t see it. Sorry, Sarah Palin, been there, done that. Chris Christie, seriously? Which one, he or Trump will insult more people? Sen. Ted Cruz? Hmm, way too much vitriol between Trump and Cruz, talk about your Odd Couple. Sen. Marco Rubio, why? I am not even sure he can deliver Florida. As a matter of fact, Trump destroyed Rubio in FLA, so what does he bring to the ticket except establishment politics? Ohio Gov. John Kasich was only in the race as he was campaigning for the job of VP. Ohio is important, but I just can’t stand this mushy middle Republican.
My choice for Trump would be Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
Dr. Ben Carson confirmed five people on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s list of potential vice presidential running mates in a recent interview.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate to John McCain, was one of the five Carson said was on the list. The rest are all former 2016 GOP presidential candidates: Trump’s closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Carson named the VP contenders to the Washington Post during a car ride with his wife Candy to a TV interview. Carson has been traveling as a spokesman for Trump. He has also been placed on a committee working on pinning down a running mate for the real estate mogul turned GOP presumptive presidential nominee.
Candy was noted in the backseat exchange as saying Carson was not on the list. They had been discussing a poll which named Carson as a favorable Trump running mate.
Barack Obama Slams Trump Building a Wall During Rutgers Commencement Speech … As the White House Builds a Higher Fence (VIDEO)
BARACK OBAMA THE HYPOCRITE IN CHIEF IS AT IT AGAIN …
Isn’t this amazing and oh so typical, as Barack Obama tells a graduating class at Rutgers University during a commencement speech that building walls doesn’t change anything. Oh course this was a backhanded slap at Donald Trump by Obama. Could you be any more small? And more of a hypocrite? The liar in chief was back at it again trying to tell millennials that building a wall to keep illegals out was a bad this as the White House is currently constructing a taller fence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to keep people out. Shocker. Obama claims walls don’t solve ills, really?
President Obama used his commencement speech at Rutgers University to tear into Donald Trump’s trade agenda, his Muslim ban, and his planned wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.As he did at an address at Howard University earlier this spring, the president went straight after Trump’s most controversial policies after the usual bromides hailing graduates and name-dropping their favorite greasy spoons and watering holes.
‘The world is more interconnected than ever before. And it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that,’ Obama said.
‘To help ourselves, we’ve got to help others, not pull up the drawbridge and try to keep the world out,’ Obama said.
Obama never mentioned Donald Trump by name but he clearly advised against believing in the Republican candidate’s campaign platform. Obama stated, “The world is more interconnected than ever before. Building walls won’t change that.” Obama also said that ignorance is not a virtue and not knowing what you’re talking about shouldn’t be viewed as telling it like it is. It should be viewed as a rejection of responsible thought.
The White House fence is currently 6 feet tall, this one goes to 11.
But wait, Obama slams Trump for wanting to build a wall to protect the United States borders and sovereignty, as the White House is getting its fences raised 5 feet in order to keep trespassers out. Imagine that, higher and stronger fences do work. So it is okay for the White House to have a higher fence to keep people out, but it is not okay for the United States of America to have the same. First they installed spikes on top of the fence and now plan on making it taller. Hmm, anyone see a double standard here?
The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an agency report obtained by the News4 I-Team.
The agency, along with the National Park Service, said it intends to begin building a “taller, stronger” fence to protect the White House grounds by 2018.
And from the Right Wing News comes more Obama hypocrisy when it comes to walls …
But, seriously, what about walls? Obama lives behind a big fence, one which the Secret Service wants to make bigger. Five feet bigger. And the security for the fence, an attempt to keep the world out, includes armed security, many with sniper rifles.
Apparently, walls work, because Team Obama is funding a wall on the Tunisia/Libya border to stop the flow of Islamists. There’s also partial funding for a wall in Jordan. And supposedly one in Niger to stop Boko Haram.
