Gallup Poll – Democrat 2016 Presidential Candidates: Hillary Clinton’s Favorability Continues to Fall as Socialist Bernie Sanders Rises
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … HILLARY CLINTON’S FAVORABILITY RATINGS KEEP FALLING …
According to a recent Gallup poll, the presumptive nominee for the Democrat party Hillary Clinton’s favorability ratings continue to fall. In contract, the self-proclaims socialist Senator from Vermont and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continues to rise in the polls. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April, while her unfavorable rating has climbed to 46%, worst since December 2007. Maybe it is only taking some time for individuals to remember what a lying, dishonest, untrustworthy, non-transparent shrew this woman truly is? Between Benghazi and her insincerity when it comes to her emails on her personal server when she was Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary is losing favor with the American people. In some cases, other polls even have Hillary now losing in battleground states to her GOP rivals.
What difference does my unfavoability make?
However on the other hand, socialist Bernie Sanders has doubled his favorability rating in the Gallup poll since his initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12%. What does that tell us of what the Democrat party has become … the rise of the socialist. Sanders also has a way to go on the upside as he is still not known to many. However, Hillary is a household name where the only people who don’t know who Hillary is may not know their own name. There is a reason why Clinton makes herself scarce to the media and the minions, the more people get to know her, the more they hate her. Take for instance her condescending tone the other day and scratching of the chalkboard with your fingernails like voice yesterday when she blamed the heat on inaccuracies with her email scandal. Watch the VIDEO and listen to her voice if you dare. Really Hillary, you mean it wasn’t a right-wing conspiracy?
Honesty, if Hillary Clinton has any kind of issue in the Democrat primary running against the likes of current US Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, what does that say about Hillary? Also, shame on the Democrat party for not having another viable candidate to vote for. Or does this party really have no prospects? Its Hillary or bust.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ favorable rating among Americans has doubled since Gallup’s initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April. At the same time, Clinton’s unfavorable rating increased to 46%, tilting her image negative and producing her worst net favorable score since December 2007.
Sanders’ increased favorability reflects the broader increase in the public’s familiarity with him since March. Overall, 44% of Americans are able to rate him today, up from 24% in March. Not only has the percentage viewing him favorably increased, but also the percentage viewing him unfavorably has risen, up eight percentage points to 20%.
Clinton’s Inauspicious Rivals
Clinton maintains a higher absolute favorable rating from Americans than any of her official rivals for the 2016 Democratic nomination. In contrast to the relative prominence of numerous candidates on the Republican side, she remains the only Democratic candidate known well enough by a majority of Americans for them to rate her, which helps Clinton maintain a higher overall favorable score.
Sanders is still an unknown to a majority of Americans, with just 44% able to rate him compared with Clinton’s 89%. Total familiarity drops still further among the other three announced Democratic candidates: to 23% for former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 22% and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee at 17%. With slightly more Americans viewing each of these candidates unfavorably than favorably, their favorable scores reach no more than 11%.
Quinnipiac University Poll: Hillary Clinton Trails Top Republicans (Bush, Rubio & Walker) in Battleground States of Iowa, Colorado & Virginia
WOW, DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE A REAL ISSUE IN A GENERAL ELECTION AGAINST THE GOP?
As reported at CNN, a recent Quinnipiac University poll of swing state shows the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of the states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia. This is an amazing turn of events from the all but crowned Democrat 2016 presidential nominee. Hillary is doing terribly in these polls as to being honest and trust worthy. At least some people in America are finally paying attention as Hillary Clinton might be one of the most insincere, most un-trustworthy presidential candidates ever. Between her lack of answers and stonewalling on Benghazi as Secretary of State, her less than transparent private email account and private server she used to conduct business as Secretary of State and then destroying said emails and her over-all unwillingness to make herself available to the media and the people as a presidential candidate. Could the gig finally be up for Hillary? It’s not like one would think her poll numbers could get better? She has 100% name recognition, but her lack of honesty may just be her undoing. But as Hillary would say of her lack of transparency and honest, “what difference does it make”. Hopefully it will make a huge difference with the voters.
Hillary Clinton trails three top Republican presidential candidates in head-to-head matchups in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, a new survey shows.
The latest Quinnipiac University swing state polling released Wednesday shows the Democratic frontrunner trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of those states.
The biggest loser, the polls found, is Donald Trump, who has surged to the front of a crowded Republican primary field nationally but is viewed unfavorably, by almost a 2-to-1 margin, by voters in those states.
The results offered more indications that Clinton has a problem: Voters say they don’t trust her.
In Colorado, only 34% of voters said they see Clinton as honest and trustworthy while 62% said they don’t. In Iowa, the numbers were 33% to 59% — a drop from 45% to 47% in April. And in Virginia, Clinton did best, at 39% saying they trust her to 55% saying they don’t.
In Colorado, Clinton trails Rubio 38%-46%, Bush 36%-41% and Walker 38%-47%. In Iowa, she trails Rubio 36%-44%, Bush 36%-42% and Walker 37%-45%. And in Virginia, Clinton has the narrowest margins between her and her Republican opponents, where she lags behind Rubio 41%-43%, Bush 39%-42% and Walker 40%-43%.
If the people of the United States ever want to have a prayer of trying to save their country and get it back on course they will never vote for Hillary.

Donald Trump Doubles Down, Says He Does Not Owe Sen. John McCain an Apology for his War Hero Comment, “I Like People that Weren’t Captured”
DONALD TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN ON NO APOLOGY TO SEN. JOHN MCCAIN …
During an interview on ABC’s “This Week” this morning, host Martha Raddatz asked GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump whether he owed John McCain an apology for his comments over the weekend in Iowa when he questioned whether McCain was a war hero because he had been captured. Trump doubles down and said, “No, not at all.” Trump went on to say that reporter Sharyl Attkisson defended his comments after the media onslaught and establishment Republicans. Trump said to Raddatz, “When people attack me, I let them have it back,” he said. “People are constantly attacking my hair. I don’t see you coming to my defense.” No double standard there.
Isn’t it something that a RINO like McCain could be the undoing of the GOP? Get the facts correct everyone, McCain fired the first shot calling American citizens who went to Trump’s speech crazies. Where is his apology to them? Oh, but that is different, because the liberal media loves McCain and thinks it is perfectly OK in their bias reporting to call Republicans crazies.
Lets get things straight, does Trump owe McCain an apology, YES. Is John McCain a war hero, YES. However, that does not mean that some one can also not call him a dummy and make comments against him. His job as US Senator is completely different than his military service. That would be like saying that if you criticize a black president for his policies, you are a racist. Oh wait, that is what the MSM does do. GET THE POINT! And just because one has military service does not mean that an individual like John McCain has the right to call people who went to a Trump speech “crazies”. Of course Trump should apologize and just say that all who serve in the military honorably are heroes. Everyone should think that. All veterans are heroes, they have sacrificed their lives in defense of the United States. All Trump would have to say in an apology is that he believes all veterans who serve honorably, whether they came home, were POW’s or paid the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives are heroes. However, whether you are a war hero or not does not give you the right to make fun of Americans and call them “crazies”. But of course the liberal MSM will never even discuss that and shame on FOX News for going along with the pack.
BREAKING: Trump tells ABC’s “This Week” in a phone interview that he doesn’t owe Senator McCain an apology for saying on-stage in Iowa yesterday that the former POW “is not a war hero … I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”
MARTHA RADDATZ: “Do you owe John McCain an apology?”
TRUMP: “No, not at all. … [V]ery importantly, I got a standing ovation, the biggest ovation they had all weekend, by far. When I left the room, it was a total standing ovation. It was wonderful to see. Nobody was insulted. … I’m very disappointed in John McCain because the vets are horribly treated in this country.” …
RADDATZ: “What did you mean you prefer those who aren’t captured?”
TRUMP: “I want to give them credit because, frankly, they don’t get the credit. John McCain gets credit. He was elected a senator, etc, etc, and we’ll give him all the credit.” …
RADDATZ: “Have you ever said anything you regret?”
TRUMP: “Yes, I have, on many occasions.”
RADDATZ: “So let me just get this clear. You are not apologizing. And you are certainly not pulling out of the race, as some of your opponents have suggested.”
A note to Donald Trump, apologize and move on. Your gripe is with a weasel like McCain,
Donald Trump Goes There, John McCain’s a War Hero Because He Was Captured, “I Like People That Weren’t” … “We Want Results … We Don’t Want Tone”
THIS GROUP WANTS RESULTS, THEY DON’T WANT TONE …
It looks like there is a little riff between The Donald and Sen. John McCain (AZ-R). Nothing is off limits for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and in thinking about it, it probably should not be. Trump reminds McCain and the rest of the establishment GOP, you better not bring a knife to a gun fight. During Family Leadership Summit in Iowa Donald Trump went there and said the following of RINO John McCain, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” OUCH, he certainly did go there. Now just to provide context to those remarks from Trump, McCain who earlier criticized the Donald for “firing up the crazies” last weekend during a rally in his home state of Arizona.
Was it right for Trump to make the statement, probably not. Donald Trump meant it as a specific comeback against McCain, who had made an insulting comment about Trump followers, calling them crazies. But it will be taken as an attack against all POW’s. But, are all POW’s considered heroes? I, personally believe they are, but not all do. Because of course If Sen. John McCain is not willing to take the arrows, he should stay out of the fight. Why is it okay to insult American citizens who happen to gravitate to the blunt, strait forward message of Trump? Why is it okay for McCain to call American’s crazies who think he’s a Rino? HERE IS THE MAIN POINT, just because one is a war hero does not give them carte blanche to make insulting comments about others. Have you ever seen McCain when he is challenged on a topic, crazies, eh? Personally, I am sick of McCain, he needs to retire or get a full time gig on a cable network. God only knows he is on them enough. John McCain had his chance to run for president and he failed badly. Is McCain a war hero, yes! Has McCain done anything as a politician, no. One would think that he would make the VA his pet project and make sure it has been fixed for wounded warriors. How’s that been going?
In the end, Trump probably owes POW’s an apology, but isn’t that part of the problem of the sad state of affairs that this country has become? Everyone and their mother is offended about something someone said, because they are only willing to look at their own situation and not the bigger picture? Trump made a larger point during this interview and that was, the people want results, they don’t want tone. HE IS CORRECT. When everyone is so worried about tone, an being PC and making sure that every word they say doesn’t offend anyone … in the end, you have said nothing of any importance. Remember when Americans cared more about America than themselves and their fragile feelings? Me neither.
Is Donald Trump rough around the edges, YES. Does he give a damn what he says and who’s feelings he hurts, it doesn’t appear so. Can Trump win the GOP nomination, I don’t think so. But I don’t believe that is Trump’s purpose in life. I think Trump’s ultimate gift to America is not to be President of the United States, sorry Donald, but to bring the gutless, limousine, establishment Republicans back in line with the Republican base and make them responsive to the will of the people who are registered Republicans and the true Independent voters who want leadership in the mode of Ronald Reagan. Lest we remind everyone, including all the mushy-middle Republican politicians, Reagan fought the establishment, privileged GOP just as much as he did Democrats, sometimes maybe even more.
NUKE DEAL REACHED: Barack Obama has officially sold the United States and Israel down the drain and all but guaranteed a nuclear arms race in the Middle East ...
Iran and six nations led vigorously by the United States to reach a deal at any cost has finally reached a historic accord on this morning with regards to Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The members of the panel are Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United States, the European Union and Iran. Aside from all the platitudes from Barack Obama and Sec. of State John Kerry touting this deal as the greatest thing since the Magna Carta, so we are supposed to trust that Iran is going to do what they say, really? When has Iran ever done what they said they would do? Sadly, this deal is a joke and will cause a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
To check the Iranians we have to put a request into Iran for inspections and Iran has 14 days to respond. Really? Because the Iranian government and Mullahs have changed, they are such trust worthy people. Meanwhile chants continue in the streets of Iran to death to America and Israel. This was an Obama deal for a deals sake as it was too big to fail.
All we can hope is that this deal gets nixed in Congress and both House and Senators from both parties show a backbone and place US security and Middle East stability before party politics and Obama’s legacy.
Iran and a group of six nations led by the United States said they had reached a historic accord on Tuesday to significantly limit Tehran’s nuclear ability for more than a decade in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions.
President Obama, in an early morning appearance at the White House that was broadcast live in Iran, began what promised to be an arduous effort to sell the deal to Congress and the American public, saying the agreement was “not built on trust. It is built on verification.”
One of the last, and most contentious issues, was the question of whether and how fast an arms embargo on conventional weapons and missiles, imposed starting in 2006, would be lifted.
After days of haggling, Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, agreed that the missile restrictions would remain for eight years and that a similar ban on the purchase and sale of missiles would be removed in five years.
Those bans would be removed even sooner if the International Atomic Energy Agency is able to reach a definitive conclusion that the Iranian nuclear program is entirely peaceful, and that there was no evidence of cheating on the accord or any activity to obtain weapons covertly.
The provisions on the arms embargo are expected to dominate the coming debate in Congress on the accord.
Even before the deal was announced, critics expressed fears that Iran would use some of the billions of dollars it will receive in sanctions relief to build up its military power in the region. Iranian officials, however, have said that Iran should be treated like any other nation, and not be subjected to an arms embargo if it meets the terms of a nuclear deal.
John Kerry said the implementation of the deal is more important than the text. “I’m not going to stand here and tell you every is going to work without a hitch,” he told reporters.
Iranian negotiators have repeatedly reassured the US that they have a full mandate from President Rouhani and the Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the US secretary of state said.
In answer to his final question he said: “We have put in ample mechanisms in respect to compliance. So I feel very confident about our ability to protect our interests.”
Mark Levin Radio Show: Hillary Clinton & Harry Reid Were Not Always for Open Borders for Illegals … “Adamently Against Illegal Immigrants” … “No Sane Country Would” Reward Illegals
NO ONE POINTS OUT THE HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT LIKE MARK LEVINE …
During yesterdays Mark Levine Radio Show (July 7), conservative talk show host Mark Levine not only spoke the truth about illegal immigration, self-deportation and how illegals are responsible for breaking up their own family. The below VIDEO is a must listen. Levine brings up some hot button topics that of course today’s Republican politicians try and avoid like the plague.
Harry Reed used to be one of the most aggressive, anti-immigration, anti-illegal immigration Senator. Levine used some past Harry Reed comments where Reed says, “no sane country would offer rewards for illegals.” Imagine that. I guess the United States today has become an insane country with Reed’s premise. So what happened to change Reed’s mind, power? The comments from 1993 Harry Reed sounds like, well, it sounds like Donald Trump.
Listen at your own risk, Can you handle the truth?
Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
Lindsey Graham says he is 91% sure he will run in the 2016 GOP presidential primary … I am 100% sure he will lose and will not even be considered a viable VP running mate.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that he is 91% sure that he will throw his hat into the 2016 GOP presidential primary. Graham stated, “I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive;” however, that hardly makes one a candidate to be president or carry your parties banner. Graham is so far out of touch with Republican voters on climate change, raising taxes and amnesty that polls show Graham is running fourth behind Scott Walker, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz in his home state of South Carolina. The polls found that 55% of Palmetto State voters wouldn’t vote for him for president. It is hard to imagine that Lindsey Grahamnesty will run for president on the GOP side because one has to wonder who would finance his campaign.
WALLACE: Are you too moderate? Are you too far in the center on nondefense issues to win the Republican nomination?
GRAHAM: Not at all. I believe climate change is real, but I reject the cap and trade solution of John — of, you know, of Al Gore. He’s made a religion. It’s a problem.
I would like to clean up the air and water, become more energy independence, create jobs. I’m for offshore drilling. I’m for finding oil and gas that we own. I’m for coal, I’m for clean coal, I’m for natural gas but I would like a lower carbon economy over time. Clean up the air and create jobs in the process.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said his decision on whether he’ll run for president depends on whether he can raise enough money, but he said there’s a “91 percent” chance he will.
“If I can raise the money, I’ll do it,” he said on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.” He added, “I think I got a good message, I think I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy. I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive. I’ve been a problem solver in Washington, and I think I’ve got something to offer the party in Washington.”
He said he would make a decision by May.
Note to Lindsey Graham, had you had a viable GOP primary challenge you for Senate in SC like Trey Gowdy or Joe Wilson, Graham would have lost and been back to practicing law.
Outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Says of GOP Presidential Contenders, “I Think They’re all Losers.”
GOOD RIDDANCE HARRY REID …
Honestly, no one is going to miss this miserable man when he leaves the Senate. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood that the candidates running for president are all losers. What a miserable individual. It is exactly this type of crotchety, mean spirited behavior that was evident during his run as Senate Majority leader. What ever happened to liberal tolerance? As Taylor Swift sings, “Why do you have to be so mean?”
The Republican field for president in 2016 is full of “losers,” Harry Reid said in an interview that aired Wednesday.
The Senate minority leader, a boxer in his youth, delivered some spirited blows while talking with CNBC’s John Harwood, calling his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell “a lump of coal” and slamming alternative theories about how he sustained his eye injury.
Reid also said he doesn’t really care who wins the Republican nomination for president. “I think they’re all losers,” he said.
