HUH? … New McClatchy-Marist Poll, Socialist Bernie Sanders Has landslide Margans over both Donald Trump & Jeb Bush


As reported at The Hill, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41 and also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

I, personally, do not believe Sanders would win any such match up, but this country elected Obama twice so who knows. Also, it almost seems impossible that Sanders is even going to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. But seriously folks, if this is truly what voters believe, then the greatest social, political experiment in democracy known as the United States of America is over.

In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points.

The huge Sanders advantage over Bush is new. In previous match-ups, the polling showed Sanders and Bush running virtually even, with Bush holding a 1-point lead over Sanders in most of the polls. Future polls will be needed to test whether the huge Sanders lead over Bush in the McClatchy poll will be repeated in future polling or whether the McClatchy poll is an outlier.

It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump that could be so huge that he would win a landslide victory in the presidential campaign, with margins that would almost certainly lead Democrats to regain control of the Senate and could help Democrats regain control of the House of Representative — if, of course, the three polls that show Sanders beating Trump by 9 to 12 points reflect final voting in the presidential election.

Democrat Party Presidential Debate Held in Las Vegas, NV … Really, Is This the Best the Democrats Have to Offer?


The Democrat Party Presidential debate was held in Las Vegas, NV last night moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Honestly, it was literally unwatchable. Forget the fact that CNN was in the tank for these Democrat candidates, forget the fact that the socialist and only person within striking distance gave Hillary Clinton a pass on her email/server scandal, forget the fact that all of these Libs would bankrupt an already in debt America with their free-give away plans … Have you really taken a look at these candidates?



Seriously, as I watched the debate last night and looked over the stage of Democrat presidential primary candidates all I could think of was … THAT’S IT? This is the best and the brightest that the Donkey party has to offer America? Lincoln Chafee and O’Malley have no business even being on the stage. At times I think Chafee had no idea if he was in Las Vegas or Providence, RI. Jim Webb looked like he was in a time warp and should have been in a 1950′s debate as his message and military career is completely lost on today’s far Left of center Democrat party. Then there is the 73 year old Socialist Bernie Sanders who comes off as just a lunatic. Really, a major political party has a socialist running for president? Finally, we have the scandal plagued Hillary Clinton. Folks, if Hillary Clinton can not defeat these grade D politicians, she is then completely useless. This is the equivalent of an NFL team playing a high-school team and the announcers actually trying to make you believe the match will actually be a close game.

To make things even more pathetic, all we hear is that crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior for the Democrats. Imagine Biden with all his gaffes being your secret weapon. Note to Democrats and the MSM, after watching that display last night, you can no longer make fun of Donald Trump and the GOP candidates.

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.

CNN/WMUR poll: Socialist Bernie Sander Leads Hillary Clinton 46% to 30% in New Hampshire


According to a recent CNN/WMUR poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 46% to 30% in the Granite state. SANDERS HAS A 16 PERCENTAGE POINT LEAD, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I know it is early, but WOW!!! Clinton’s poll numbers continue to tank amid her email/private server scandal. As the PJ Tatler opines, Hillary Clinton is not even winning woman in New Hampshire. I would appear that the Hillary Clinton is not a sure bet to be the Democrat nominee and its only a matter of time before Joe Biden announced his presidential run so that the Donkey party does not have a 74 year old socialist representing them in a general presidential election in 2016.

Full poll results can be seen HERE.


Sanders has the backing of nearly half of those who say they plan to vote in the first-in-the-nation Democratic primary next year — 46% support him — while just 30% say they back Clinton. Another 14% say they would support Biden, 2% former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, 1% former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and less than half of 1% back former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee or Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig.

Clinton trails Sanders across most demographic groups, with broad gender and ideology divides bolstering Sanders’ run. He holds 56% of male Democratic voters compared with just 20% who back her, while the two are much closer among women, 39% back Sanders, 37% Clinton. Likewise, Sanders holds a 56% to 30% lead among liberals, versus a 37% to 31% race among moderates.


Socialist Bernie Sanders Leads Hillary Clinton by 11 in New Hampshire, by 9 with Biden in Race


According to the most recent NBC News/Marist poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders has a 11 point lead over Hillary Clinton. That is not a typo folks, a socialist now is the front runner in the Granite state for the Democrat nominee for president. Just two months ago Hillary was up by double digits over Sanders. The more and more Clinton pours money in politics ads into NH, the more she sinks. Just how embarrassing will it be for the Democrat party, if a socialist is their nominee?

Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a nine-point lead over front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and he’s gained ground on her among Iowa voters in the Democratic presidential race, according to a pair of brand-new NBC News/Marist polls.

In New Hampshire, the Vermont senator gets the support of 41 percent of Democratic voters, Clinton gets 32 percent and Vice President Joe Biden gets 16 percent. No other Democratic candidate receives more than 1 percent.

Full NBC/Marist poll.

Iowa Poll: Hillary Clinton Leads Socialist Bernie Sanders in Iowa 37% to 30%


Doesn’t this speak volumes of the Democrat party. According to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has narrowed the gap on Hillary Clinton in polling for the Democratic presidential nominee, 37% to 30%. The Vermont Senator now only trails Hillary by 7. How is this possible? Just how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton, or has the Democrat party finally jumped the shark and truly has become nothing more than a Socialist party? And of course what does it say about the Democrat party in general when we have an open election for the next president of the United States and all the Donkeys can provide as candidates is a liar, a socialist, two unknowns that no one cares about and crazy VP who has not declared whether he is in or out.


Liberal revolutionary Bernie Sanders, riding an updraft of insurgent passion in Iowa, has closed to within 7 points of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.

She’s the first choice of 37 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers; he’s the pick for 30 percent, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll.

But Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May, a trajectory that if sustained puts her at risk of losing again in Iowa, the initial crucible in the presidential nominating contest.

Fox News Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Gains on Hillary Clinton But Trails by Wide Margin


In the most recent FOX News poll, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has gained some ground on the presumptive Democrat nominee and ethically challenged Hillary Clinton, 49% to 30%. Although still trailing by a great deal, Sanders has shaved the lead by 10 percentage points as Sanders trailed by 29 in the Jul-2 Aug 15 poll, 51% to 22%. If Hillary Clinton’s struggles continue where the voters believe her to be a liar, it would be long before the socialist Sanders takes the lead in this poll as well. Sanders recently lead a Boston Herald/FPU poll by 7%.  Vice President Joe Biden is in third with 10%; however, that may change greatly in the near future if he decides to enter the presidential race as Hillary’s email and ethical challenges continue.

EXIT QUESTION: Will support for Hillary Clinton continue to wane and will Joe Biden enter the race?


Franklin Pierce Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Surges Ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, 44% to 37%


Just how bad of a presidential candidate is Hillary Clinton for the Democrats? It has finally happened, the most recent Franklin Pierce poll shows that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads Hillary Clinton by 7 percentage points, 44% to 37%. ARE YOU KIDDING? Hillary Clinton is considered by all as the presumptive Democrat nominee to run for president in 2016, but yet she finds herself behind in a poll to a socialist. Is it Hillary’s lack of trustworthiness not much of an issue? However, since when have Democrats cared about their presidents or candidates telling the truth, aka you can keep your doctors, if you like your doctor promise of Obamacare. Or has this email/private server scandal just pushed people from holding their nose when it comes to Clinton, to abandoning her? What would happen if Hillary Clinton actually had a viable competitor in the primaries, rather than a socialist like Sanders? Then again, no one can tell the difference anymore between the Socialist and Democrat parties these days.

Bernie Sanders

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has rocketed past longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, a stunning turn in a race once considered a lock for the former secretary of state, a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows.

Sanders leads Clinton 44-37 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, the first time the heavily favored Clinton has trailed in the 2016 primary campaign, according to the poll of 442 Granite-Staters.

Vice President Joe Biden got 9 percent support in the test primary match-up. The other announced Democrats in the race, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Gov. Jim Webb, barely register at 1 percent or below.

The live interview phone poll was conducted Aug. 7-10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

Clinton is still viewed overwhelmingly by voters as the likely Democratic nominee, but the results suggest she faces an unexpectedly difficult fight to prevent an embarrassing opening loss in the first-in-the-nation primary.

Socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders To Announce 2016 Presidential Run


Vermont’s self-proclaimed socialist Senator is supposed to announce his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election. I can say that I do not agree with one position or policy of Sanders but I do respect him because as far-LEFT and socialist as he is, he actually believes what he says, as misguided as it is. For that I say, run Bernie, run!!! We speculated a month back when Bernie Sanders hinted that he would run in 2016, that he might just be Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare. Although Sanders is an Independent in the Senate, he would be running in the Democrat primary. Sanders would force Hillary to the far, far LEFT. The Democrat party has moved much farther to the LEFT from the days of Bill Clinton’s presidency.  Does Bernie have a real chance of winning the Democrat nomination, probably not. However, this socialist who is going to run on income inequality has strongly criticized Clinton for having a “soft” attitude towards Wall Street. Sanders could be a major thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton as his socialist views are loved by the liberal base.

The Independent Socialist Senator said he “liked Hilliary” and she is a “very, very intelligent person”. However, Sanders said there needs to be a leader “to wage a political revolution in this country which brings millions of people into the political process to stand up and fighting for their rights in a way that we have not seen right now,” and Hillary Clinton was not the leader of that movement.

Bernie Sanders

VPR News has learned from several sources that Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will announce his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday.

Sanders will release a short statement on that day and then hold a major campaign kickoff in Vermont in several weeks.

Sanders’ entry into the Democratic race ensures that Hillary Clinton will face a challenge to win the support of the liberal wing of the party.

Sanders’ basic message will be that the middle class in America has been decimated in the past two decades while wealthy people and corporations have flourished.

His opposition to a proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal (T.P.P.) shows how he plans to frame this key issue of his campaign.

In the Real Clear Politics Poll for the 2016 Democratic Presidential Nomination has Bernie Sanders in a distant 4th place at 5.6%, some 56.6% behind Hillary Clinton; however, ahead of O’Malley, who the media claims to be a challenger to Hillary.

Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin on Giuliani’s Comments: Rudy’s Exactly Right …Obama Has Contempt for This Country


Author, attorney and Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin appeared with Sean Hannity last week and said the following regarding  Rudy Giuliani’s comments that Obama does not love America. Levin called out Obama and his so-called love of country comparing fundamentally trying to transform America to trying to fundamentally transform your wife or girlfriend. Levin went on to say that Obama was the most preposterous and absurd president ever. And what Obama is doing and is not doing as president, will be left to his successor. Levin even went on to say that Obama was no friend of Muslims who are being slaughtered all over the world. Levin completed his commentary on Obama saying that “Obama is a religious and historical illiterate. I think he really does have contempt for this country. He contempt for our military and Rudy is exactly right”.

“Well Rudy is exactly right. When somebody says they want to fundamentally transform America (VIDEO), well then you must not love America.  It’s like saying I am going to fundamentally transform my wife or my girlfriend. That means you must not love your wife or girlfriend. And Obama has shown no indication that he loves the Constitution. He never talks about capitalism, he’s always bringing up the past, picking at scabs. Even now, he’s a pasty for Islamic terrorism. Half of his speeches are about how terrible America is and America should not react in a negative way.

I want to remind this president, he likes to bring up Jesus in a certain context, and I say this as a Jew. There are an awful lot of Christians in America and in Europe who has died, who have been maimed, who have been harmed trying to defend innocent, peace loving Muslims in the Middle East and Afghanistan. It would be nice every now and then if he would acknowledge that.
