  • Donald Trump Polling Ahead of Clinton – But Did He Really Get Polling Bounce?…

    Conservative Treehouse ^ | 7/26/2016 | Sundance
    ...Does it really make sense that Donald Trump jumped that far (10 to 12 points) from a convention bounce? Of course not. The reality is, Clinton was NEVER ahead, and the race is not even close now... You see, the reality is folks – this race is not close. This race is not even in the same city where the close ballpark is located. Look at the Philly Convention. Do you notice how the entire venue is optically different from the GOP convention by intentional design? In Cleveland the delegates were all on the floor of the event venue. The...

They came out and they said, "You know, the ball was dropped -- in security. And, you know, some of the decisions that were made, probably should have been rethought." Clinton went on to say concerns about security at the American Diplomatic Compound in Benghazi never reached her. “It was not my ball to carry. … Those [security reports] never reached me. Those never came to my attention,” she said.

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews slammed the Republican National Convention speech Monday by the mother of one of the four killed in Benghazi, saying he didn’t "care what that woman up there, the mother, has felt." While he praised the RNC address by "Lone Survivor" Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, he sharply criticized the remarks by Patricia Smith calling Hillary Clinton a liar who deserved to be in prison. Her son Sean Smith perished in the 2012 terrorist attack, and Clinton’s handling of the ordeal and subsequent deceit about its causes as secretary of state have plagued her ever since. "This gross...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party's convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort "to keep the peace" in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails. One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they...

    As for the notion that Reagan's rhetoric was purely positive and aspirational — here's a line from his speech at the 1980 convention: "Back in 1976, [Jimmy] Carter said, 'Trust me.' And a lot of people did. Now, many of those people are out of work. Many have seen their savings eaten away by inflation. Many others on fixed incomes, especially the elderly, have watched helplessly as the cruel tax of inflation wasted away their purchasing power. And, today, a great many who trusted Mr. Carter wonder if we can survive the Carter policies of national defense." One other point:...

    Now add Tim Kaine to the mix.

No guy wants to hear eight years of that. They get enough of it at home. My prediction is that Kaine will do nothing to improve Clinton’s standing with women. But the Clinton-Kaine ticket is a persuasion disaster in terms of the male vote. Male egos are probably already at a historical low point. Kaine puts a face...

In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.

A July 11 statement in The Daily, Case Western’s internal e-newsletter, informs students — and professors, and administrators — that the private school’s Social Justice Institute “will host a ‘safe space'” in the basement of concrete-laden Crawford Hall for the duration of the convention, which...

Bush told former aides at a staff reunion in April that he is concerned he could be the last Republican president: When it came to talk of 2016, though, the mood was grim. The Republican primary had just narrowed to essentially two choices, each anathema to these card-carrying members of the GOP establishment: Ted Cruz and, even more egregiously, Donald Trump. But few were as dark about the Republican Party’s future as former President Bush himself. In a more intimate moment during the reunion, surrounded by a smaller clutch of former aides...

    Political conventions are usually where parties unite, but there's nothing "usual" about the big Republican get-together in Cleveland. In Donald Trump, they’ve got an unprecedented candidate -- a man who’s never held office and shoots from the hip. He’s brought a lot of people into the party, people who will fight for him. But he’s also turned off party regulars -- and some are hoping to take away the presumption from this presumptive nominee.

    CLEVELAND -- Republicans responsible for setting the party's presidential nomination rules on Thursday overwhelmingly rejected attempts to formally unbind delegates to next week's convention, effectively ending any serious attempt to rob Donald Trump of the GOP presidential nomination. A vote came quickly Thursday night as part of a day-long marathon session of the Republican National Convention's rules committee, which sets the rules of the meetings and how the party will pick its nominee in 2020. The rejection of the "unbinding" proposal was so overwhelming that committee leaders opted not to record the tally. Trump supporters on the committee quickly exercised...

It’s a called (in the print edition) “The need for grown-ups.” The “grown-ups” to whom Rubin refers are Theresa May, who will be Britain’s next prime minister, and Hillary Clinton. Her thesis is that the two women have the steady hands needed to pick up the wreckage wrought by Brexit and Donald Trump, respectively.

While the developments are certainly good news for the Clinton campaign, Comey's critical statement on Clinton's handling of the matter was not positive. Clinton's lead over Trump has deteriorated in the past couple weeks since her lead peaked two weeks ago.

The former Florida governor, who dropped his bid for the White House in February on the night of the South Carolina primary, said voters will 'feel betrayed' by Trump because some of his campaign promises – from building a Mexican border wall to banning non-American Muslims from the...

    You can blame Trump for Trump University, and for his uncivil language. You can blame Trump for lots of stuff.

Unless Trump finds a way to counter Clinton’s racial persuasion, he will lose in November. I expect Trump to go full-attack after the conventions. It would take the world’s greatest persuader to redefine Trump in a way that he can win the election. But as it turns out, Trump is probably the world’s greatest persuader. That’s...

Speaking at an address in Virginia Beach originally billed as a veterans policy speech, Trump opened by discussing the deep challenges police face. “We will always stand with you,” Trump said.

    All the Republicans needed to do today was this: 1) Get Comey to talk about Hillary’s NDA – where she agreed that classified information was “marked or unmarked” – and which listed severe criminal penalties for failing to protect it. 2) Get Comey to admit that Hillary had potentially exposed critical security information to our enemies. 3) Get Comey to admit that Hillary lied repeatedly about her actions. 4) Get Comey to admit that Hillary’s decision to direct all of her E-mails to her home server was intentional. 5) Get Comey to admit that the job of Secretary of State...

    When people tell me that it doesn’t matter whether they vote for Her Clintoness or the Trumpster because both are equally corrupt, I check my frustration and instead ask them a few questions.

Retired Lt. Gen Michael T.

Donald Trump met with Senator Cruz in Washington on Thursday and reportedly offered him a speaking slot at the convention....
