  • Dem Strategist: Clinton Should Be In Panic Mode Over Enthusiasm Gap With Black Voters

    Leslie Wimes, the president of the Democratic African-American women's caucus, joins MSNBC's Hallie Jackson to discuss the Clinton campaign being in "panic mode" about low voter enthusiasm in the black community. WIMES: When I said that in September that the enthusiasm level for African-Americans as far as Hillary Clinton's campaign was not there, I was right. They were wrong. They didn't want anyone to know they were in panic mode. HALLIE JACKSON, MSNBC: There is nothing she can do? WIMES: Oh, no. It's over now as far as the African-American community is concerned. She had time back then to get...

    This was a joke but there is more truth to it than anyone there may have known. Since the party conventions in July (from August 1st through Saturday, October 22, 2016) Hillary has participated in only 34 campaign rallies to Trump’s 87. Of Hillary’s 34 campaign rallies where she was present, only a dozen of these events had crowd estimated at over 1,000 people. Donald Trump on the other hand held 87 events in the same time period of which only 7 had crowds estimated at less than 1,000. Most, if not all, of these small crowds for Trump were...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 10-22-2016 | MOTUS
     I’d like to file another anecdotal pre-election enthusiasm report from fly-over America. Yesterday Raj and I took a mini color tour on the backroads of the mitten state. To be fair I should point out that we steered clear of urban areas and stuck to back roads through little burgs and farmland – natural Trumper habitat. Nevertheless, during a day long trip that included no backtracking I saw a grand total of 3 Hillary signs and too-many-to-count Trump signs – literally dozens. Let’s hope that this severe enthusiasm gap translates to votes.You may recall that a few days back, following...
  • Gallup survey shows same 11 point enthusiasm gap in favor of Trump

    The Coach's Team ^ | 10/18/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Any “poll” that does not factor in an 11 point gap in the enthusiasm in favor of Donald Trump is a poll that has been falsified. If you are a Democrat and don’t want to know the truth, or a Trump supporter who prefers to be in a perpetual state of fear, don’t bother reading this. For those who do want actual facts rather than faked polls, here are some irrefutable facts about enthusiasm which have been smothered by Gallup and the Democrat controlled media. Today’s Drudge Report has a vague headline reading “Gallup: Warning Signs…” It jumps to a...
  • TRUMP MOMENTUM IS SURGING=> Half a MILLION at his Rallies since July – 25,000 at Hillary Rallies

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/17/16 | Jim Hoft
    Trump’s momentum is surging. His campaign is noticeably full of energy and the numbers prove it. Night after night Trump fills venues throughout the country setting capacity records and turning away thousands in the process. The internet is filled with videos of long lines waiting to get into Trump events and packed houses all over the country. Since entering the race in 2015 through July 2016 it’s estimated that Trump entertained 1.1 million people at his rallies.Since July (in only 2 and a half months) it’s estimated that Trump has entertained another half a million people.  He has turned away another...
  • One Reason the Democrats Lost So Big in Midterms: Exceptionally Low Voter Turnout

    The American Prospect ^ | November 9, 2014 | Sam Wang
    When turnout falls, Democrats perform worse in elections. That general pattern is well known. In making their forecasts, pollsters try to estimate what that turnout will be on the basis of previous elections. This year, pre-election opinion polls were off by the largest amount seen in over 20 years. Could this massive underperformance by Democrats have been connected to a wrong guess about turnout?

    I was 13 years old in 1960 when JFK ran for President. I remember much of that time even a visit by JFK and Jackie to our town. I live in Massachusetts so I was at the center of Kennedy country. But even the excitement of the 1960 campaign pales when compared to the excitement of the Trump campaign. Kennedy didn't pack huge auditoriums with 10 or 20 thousand people everywhere he went. There is a name for what Trump is doing--it is a PHENOMINUM!

    The Florida geography is also working against us. Hillary has 53+ Field Offices and they’re empty of volunteers. This lack of enthusiasm is showing up in the voting responses and it’s killing us. The “cell phones” rationale will only hold out for so long.

    On Monday Presidential candidate Donald Trump campaigned Pueblo, Colorado and then again in Loveland, Colorado in the Budweiser Events Center. His event in Loveland set an attendance record for the Center with 8,000 present and another 10,000 were reported either turned away or the grounds during the event. At the Prescott Valley Events Center in Prescott, Arizona on Tuesday, the Central Arizona Fire Marshal Rick Chase said he allowed 7,000 inside. Another 13,000 were reported outside by the Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Jason Kaufman. Hillary Clinton on the other hand had four small rallies in Ohio and Pennsylvania on Monday...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 10/5/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Hillary Clinton’s inability to attract White voters is very bad; yet her inability to excite 18 to 29 year old voters is the stuff of nightmares. With little more than a month until Election Day it is becoming clear that the media is juggling their poll results as hard as they can to help their newsroom goddess; but people just don’t like Hillary Clinton. A recent Washington Post/ABC NEWS survey shows Donald Trump is ahead by a staggering 65/25 with White men and just down 44/46 with White women. Combined with at least a 72% White turnout, (but likely 74%...

    The Toronto Sun ^ | October 3, 2016 | Mark Bonokoski
    After relentlessly stabbing away at Donald Trump with character assaults and ridicule, the New York Times believed it had finally found his Achilles’ heel. It came the old-fashioned way. It showed up in a snail-mail envelope from an anonymous source that claimed to be Trump’s income-tax documents from 1995, showing he’s quite likely paid no income taxes for 18 years after writing off a near-billion-dollar business loss. The result? Luke-warm heat, but no boiling oil. Clinton herself, as it turns out, used the same loophole in 2015 to avoid almost $700,000 in taxes. Not a billion, obviously, but still 14...

    (REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it. Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous. The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication...
