Donald Trump Mocks Jeb Bush for Bringing Brother GWB on Campaign Trail

REALLY DONALD, DON’T YOU BRING YOUR FAMILY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?

Hmm, once again GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump applies a double standard as he mocks other while he does the same thing. Donald Trump mocked his GOP rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign. Why wouldn’t Jeb bring his bother to a red state like South Carolina? Sorry Donald, its just good marketing, you should appreciate that. In fact, if Donald had a former president as a brother he would be doing the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Jeb Bush supporter, I believe he represents too much of the “mushy middle” of the Republican establishment, however, let’s call it like it is. Trump has his entire family on the campaign trail all the time. Sorry, the longer this race goes on, the bigger idiot and fool Trump is sounding like. Trump, keep it classy, if that is even possible.

Hey look, Trump has his entire family on the Campaign Trail but that’s different

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is mocking rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign.

“Don’t fall asleep when I mention the name,” Trump said, when he brought up Jeb Bush during a rally in Louisiana on Thursday.

“I see he’s bringing his brother in now. He tried the mother, who’s a very nice lady, I’m sure, but he tried the mother. That didn’t work out so good,” he said. “Now he’s bringing in his brother.”

Former first lady Barbara Bush recently campaigned with her son in New Hampshire ahead of the primary there. Now, his brother will be hitting the campaign trail in South Carolina to help bolster support.

Trump said he’d refrain from saying too much until after the former president makes a statement, adding “there’s plenty to say about what happened.”

“Especially that last three months, and especially getting us in that quicksand. You know, we got in quicksand,” he said.

Trump has in the past called Jeb Bush an embarrassment to his family, which includes two former presidents.

South Carolina Poll: Donald Trump 32%, Ted Cruz 26%, Marco Rubio 20%, Jeb Bush 10%

SOUTH CAROLINA … DO YOU KNOW WHO THE REAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN IS? HINT, IT DOESN’T RHYME WITH DUMP.

According the the Weekly Standard, there is a new poll out ahead of the South Carolina primaries in SC and is looking like the following. Could it be possible, is Cruz actually withing striking distance of The Donald? However, the RCP average polling has Trump way out ahead. Will the good people of South Carolina actually wake up and take a good look at the past actions and determine who the real Conservative Republican is and who just talks a good game?

Ted Cruz2

Donald Trump 32%,
Ted Cruz 26%,
Marco Rubio 20%,
Jeb Bush 10%

Rush Limbaugh opined on his radio show:

Now, Bill Kristol says: “I’ve just heard from a political operative whom I’ve known a long time and whose integrity I trust. This person is working with an organization — not one of the campaigns — that was in the field (using a very reputable pollster) Wednesday night in South Carolina.”  And that’s what these numbers are.  And Bill Kristol says: “Take it with the usual grains of salt, but I do trust these were the actual results of an honest and competent pollster doing his best to get an accurate read on the situation.”

So it’s unidentified.  We don’t know who the pollster is. We don’t know anything about the poll. We don’t know numbers. We don’t know breakdowns. We don’t have any cross tabs. We have nothing other than these numbers, and here they go.  The Bill Kristol pollster: Trump 32, South Carolina, Ted Cruz 26, Marco Rubio 20, Jeb Bush 10, Ben Carson 7, and John Kasich 2.  Now, the order lines up with the Real Clear Politics average.

But let’s do a numbers comparison.  In the Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, Trump’s at 32, Real Clear Politics 36.  Again, this is for South Carolina.  In the Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, Ted Cruz 26, Real Clear Politics average 20.  The Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, 20 for Rubio. And in the Real Clear Politics poll Rubio gets 12.7%.  And both polls put Jeb Bush at 10.  The Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” South Carolina poll and the Real Clear Politics average. So the order lines up, the numbers are fairly close, but there is some significant difference.

 

Socialist Bernie Sanders Destroyed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 60% – 38% … So Why Are They Leaving the Granite State With a Similar Number of Delegates?

WHEN IS A 22 POINT WIN NOT A WIN … WHEN ITS DEMOCRAT POLITICS OF COURSE.

Self proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed the establishment, super pac candidate Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democrat primary Tuesday night by 22 points. At the end of the evening the vote count of the people of New Hampshire was Sander 60% and Clinton 38%. But get this, after the embarrassing butt kicking Clinton took at the hands of a 74 year old socialist, Hillary Clinton may actually come out ahead in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates. I guess this is what Bernie Sanders was talking about with regards the political process being rigged? Hey Bernie, instead of always whining about campaign money, you might want to look at how delegates are allocated in the Democrat party. Before the primary even began Hillary was ahead with delegates, Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose. And you wonder why the people hate the process. As Legal Insurrection opines … It’s how DEM-ocracy works.

Hillary Clinton_what

What Difference Does it Make if I lose by 22 points, I still win …

Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but she may come out of the state on top in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates.

Here’s why: New Hampshire has 24 Democratic delegates distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives.

According to the Associated Press, the Vermont senator earned at least 13 of the Democratic delegates with 60 percent of the vote in the Granite State. Because New Hampshire isn’t a winner-take-all state, Clinton won at least nine delegates with her 38 percent of the vote. A remaining two delegates have yet to be determined based on popular vote totals, according to AP.

But New Hampshire also has eight Democratic “superdelegates” — party insiders who aren’t bound by the popular vote outcome and can support any candidate they choose. Six of the superdelegates said before Tuesday night’s voting that they plan to support Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July.

That support isn’t binding, though — superdelegates can switch candidates between now and the convention.

Clinton’s Granite State superdelegates include New Hampshire Democratic lawmakers Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Annie Kuster, according to The Hill. One of the undecided superdelegates is Ray Buckley, chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who was barred by state party rules from selecting a candidate prior to the primary in an effort to maintain neutrality.

Chris Christie & Carly Fiorina Quit 2016 Presidential Race After Poor Showing in New Hampshire Primary

AND THEN THERE WERE SIX FOR THE GOP …

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the Republican presidential race after a very poor showing in the New Hampshire primaries. Fiorina finished 7th with 4% of the vote and Christie finished 6th with about 7.5% of the vote. Carly Fiorina had a short and meteoric rise as she performed strong at times during the debates, but it just never translated to a rise in the polls. With regards to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to be honest, his run for the GOP presidential nomination was over before it began. Pundits pondered why Christie’s campaign never got traction and why even after he knee-capped establishment darling Marco Rubio showing him to be robitoc, Christie gained nada in the polls. Really, is it that hard to understand? With all due respect to Christie, his presidential run ended when he decided to hug Barack Obama during the president’s photo-op trip to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy and what looked like a date between Obama and Christie on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Sorry Chris, you were toast after that and no Republican was ever going to for get that image. We had said back in 2013 for Christie to not waste his time. I guess he should have listened.

Obama_Christie3

Really Gov. Christie, did you ever thing the GOP base would ever forget these images?

Obama_Christie

Chris Christie dropped out of the race for president on Wednesday afternoon, two hours after a rival candidate quit.

Carly Fiorina, one of only two women in the U.S. presidential race, left her quixotic pursuit of the White House on Wednesday after a seventh-place New Hampshire primary finish in a field of eight candidates.

And Christie, the governor of New Jersey, soon followed suit after rumors of his campaign’s demise swirled all day.

Spokeswoman Samantha Smith confirmed the news to the Associated Press, saying that Christie broke the news of his decision to staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late in the afternoon.

Christie is also calling donors and supporters to thank them for staying the course as his poll numbers gasped for air.

Before leaving the race Carly Fiorina blasted Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her minions for their reprehensible comments regarding feminism and threats of going to hell to women who dared not support Clinton.

Fiorina took one last shot at Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, kicking her while she was down after a stunning defeat in New Hampshire.

‘To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you,’ Fiorina wrote. ‘Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism.’

53% of New Hampshire Women Have a Special Place in Hell Saved for Them … Bernie Wins Women over Hillary by 53% – 46%

DON’T LOOK NOW, 53% OF NEW HAMPSHIRE WOMAN WHO CAST VOTES IN THE DEMOCRAT PRIMARY ARE GOING TO HELL … ACTUALLY ALL BY THE +65 CROWD ARE GOING TO HELL …

Hillary is so unlikable, she even drove women away in NH …  Since the outset of the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has played the gender card to make up for the fact that no one can name a single accomplishment for the former first lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. Over this past weekend in New Hampshire her campaign sunk to a new low when Hillary Clinton surrogate, former Sec. of Sate Madeleine Albright, said much to the chuckling and laughing of Hillary,  “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Well that went over like a ton of bricks as Bernie Sanders trounced Hillary Clinton in last nights New Hampshire Primary 60% to 38%!!! Making matter worse for Hillary, Bernie Sanders won the woman vote 53% to 46%.

The end result … Bernie Sanders wins by 22 points over Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign motto … “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Wow, there’s a winning message. How her campaign does not do a total shake up and Madeline Albright tossed off the campaign trail would be a miracle.

Sanders won women by 53-46 percent, as well as prevailing far more widely among men, 65-34 percent. Sixty-nine percent of women under 45 backed Sanders (including 82 percent of those under 30 women), while Clinton won women 45 and older by 56-43 percent.

Among all voters under age 30, Sanders beat Clinton by a huge 84-15 percent margin, another result similar to Iowa.

Sanders won by 45 points among self-identified independents (72-27), and they accounted for 39 percent of NH voters – fewer than in past years, but still many more than in other states.

UPDATE I: Bernie Sanders Wins Every Demographic Group, Except +65.

Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.

He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.

Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64.

Donald Trump Declared Winner in GOP New Hampshire Primary, Kasich Second and Battle for Third Between Cruz, Bush and Rubio

 Fox News: Trump wins, Kasich takes 2nd in GOP New Hampshire primary.

Donald Trump is the winner in the New Hampshire Republican primary and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will take second place, Fox News projects.

The battle for third, though, remains a fierce contest among three candidates – Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

It is too early to project how those three will finish, though Rubio is trailing that group in early returns.

Bernie Sanders Prevails and G.O.P. Has 3-Way Tie as 3 New Hampshire Towns Vote.

The results are in.

Or, at least, the first results from the tiny New Hampshire towns — Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart’s Location — that practice the time-honored tradition of voting at midnight to claim the distinction of casting the election’s first primary ballots.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont emerged as the Democrats’ big winner of the wee hours on Tuesday, with 17 votes in total, while Hillary Clinton received nine.

On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Donald J. Trump and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio each had nine votes.

In the early, early voting it would appear that Bernie Sanders has raced out to a 17-9 lead over Hillary Clinton.

As for the Republicans it is a much tighter race as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and John Kasich all have 9 votes a piece, followed by Christie with 3, Bush 2, Rubio 2 and Carson and Fiorino with 1.

NH PRIMARIES 2016: Dixville Notch, NH Has Voted: Sanders & Kasich With Early Lead

NH PRIMARIES 2016: EARLY VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED IN DIXVILLE NOTCH …

Just after 12 ‘o clock midnight, the polls opened in the tiny town of Dixville Notch. With all of the vote counted in Dixville Notch, Bernie Sanders defeats Hillary Clinton in a landslide, 4-0. Meanwhile for the Republicans it was a much tighter race as Ohio Gov. John Kasich garnered 3 votes and Donald Trump came in second with 2 votes. Here is an interesting tidbit, it was a second straight shutout loss for Mrs. Clinton, who also failed to get a single Dixville Notch vote in the 2008 primary. Hmm, is this a sign of things to come for Hillary in New Hampshire and the primaries as a whole? Dixville Notch is about 20 miles from the border with Canada and has 9 registered voters who are mostly employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel.

dixville-notch

won the most Republican votes in Dixville Notch early Tuesday morning, while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won all the Democratic votes.

Kasich came away with three while business mogul Donald Trump won two. On the Democratic side, Sanders received four.

The results are a welcome sign for Kasich, whose campaign said he actively reached out to all nine voters who voted early Tuesday near the Canadian border in the first balloting of the New Hampshire primary.

The small groups of voters in the communities of Dixville Notch, Hart’s Location, and Millsfield all participated today in the idealized New Hampshire tradition of voting en masse at midnight when polls open. The votes of those communities — particularly Dixville Notch — are given outsize importance as predictors of who will go on to larger victories in the presidential race.

From This Week: Why are these voters able to cast their ballots so early? Under New Hampshire law, communities that have fewer than 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them once registered voters have cast their ballots, The Boston Globe reports. All nine voters in Dixville Notch are employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, and they voted inside a building on the property.

Poll Conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC Shows Rubio Falling to 4th

THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...

As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.

An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.

The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.

Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.

Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.

7News/UMass Lowell New Hampshire Tracking Poll Shows Trump Ahead for GOP and Sanders for Democrats

QUESTIONS LEADING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY … WILL HILLARY FEEL THE “BERN” AND WILL TRUMP REALLY WILL BY SUCH A WIDE MARGIN?

According to the 7 News/UMass Lowell NH tracking poll, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have bog leads heading into next Tuesday’s, February 9, 2016 New Hampshire Presidential primary. Self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton by double digits, 55% to 41%. The question becomes, will Sanders actually destroy the establishment presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary be such a wide margin Tuesday night? Will a socialist hand Hillary Clinton her lunch? According to the RCP average polling, the above tracking poll is pretty much in line. It would appear that the 74 year old socialist is poised to win a 14 to 15 percent victory over the Clinton machine in New Hampshire.

NH Tracking Poll_UMASS Lowell

Our tracking poll shows both races settling down. Bernie Sanders is now beating Hillary Clinton 55 percent to 41 percent, his support holding steady. Clinton gained a point overnight, edging slightly closer. The tracking poll shows Clinton is still gaining on Sanders, but the pace of her rise has slowed and Sanders leveled off after three days of big drops.

“There’s a big gender gap in the Democratic race,” said Dr. Joshua Dyck, UMass Lowell pollster. “Sanders leads by more than 30 percent among men, but just 2% among women. A big change from earlier this week.”

As for the Republican party, Trump appears to have a commanding lead at 35% following by a pack of 4 individuals from 14% to 10% that include, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and John Kasich. However, one has to wonder if Rubio’s poor performance in last nights debate and strong performances by governors Christie and Bush might cause some last minute movement by the electorate? It’s hard to believe that Bush and Kasich have actually gained points but NH has become increasingly liberal these days. The real question heading into the NH Primaries is, will Trump over or under perform his polling, who will come in second and third and will Rubio’s terrible debate performance cost him and stop any momentum he might have had?

Among the Republicans, Donald Trump stays number one, with 35 percent; and picked up a point. Marco Rubio, at 14 percent, lost a point, but keeps second place. Ted Cruz, at 13 percent, also lost a point, but did not lose third place. The biggest GOP changes: John Kasich and Jeb Bush. Both have broken into double digits after both picked up two points overnight.

There were also some changes in the bottom tier. Chris Christie is at four percent, after losing a point since Friday.  Ben Carson, three percent after losing one. And no change for Carly Fiorina, who also gets three percent.
