    With the latest wars and bombing in the middle east, there will be another wave of refugees from Syria,Iran,Iraq,Pakistan and more.Europe accepted and welcomed a lot of refugees in the past year or more,and since then the crime in Europe as well as bombings,terroristic attacks, and murders. The problem is that over 80% of the villains of the criminal cases come from one of the countries mentioned above,and people are starting to worry that they made one of the biggest mistakes in the 21st century.

    REUTERS CHANGES ITS POLL AFTER DONALD TRUMP ERASES HILLARY CLINTON’S HUGE Two weeks ago, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was leading GOP nominee Donald Trump by a whopping 13 percent, according to Reuters/ Ipsos’ polling. Clinton’s 46-33 percent margin in this survey was due to the fact that “Americans have become increasingly positive about Clinton this month.” Really? How quickly things can change. This week, Reuters/ Ipsos’ polling shows Trump leading Clinton by a 39-37 margin – a huge swing. Clearly this cannot stand. The government-media-corporate-Hollywood elite have already decreed that Clinton will win the presidency … and lots of...

    JULY 29: A new election poll released this morning (conducted on July 28) by the USC Dornsife / LA Times Presidential Election Poll shows that Donald Trump has 46.7% of the total popular vote, while Hillary Clinton lags behind with 40.6% of the popular vote. 2,188 people were surveyed. This is a very surprising result, considering that the Democratic National Convention usually gives the Democratic candidate a large boost in the polls. It did not seem to be the case this year for Hillary Clinton....

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump got a poll boost from last week's convention, rising 5 points in RealClearPolitics.com's weighted poll average since it began, putting him almost a point above Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. This was despite a convention that by any standard was a raucous mess, suggesting that maybe controlled, tightly scripted conventions aren't the benefit they are assumed to be.

    Donald Trump holds a modest lead over Hillary Clinton in Nevada, according to a new KTNV-TV 13 Action News/Rasmussen Reports poll. The poll of 750 likely voters shows the Republican presidential candidate leading Clinton by 43 to 38 percent in Nevada, with eight percent supporting Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. The KTNV-TV 13 Action News/Rasmussen Reports also reports Republican Senate candidate Joe Heck with a nine point lead over his Democratic opponent, Catherine Cortez Masto.

    Donald Trump has gotten a significant boost from his party’s nominating convention last week; now, Hillary Clinton will try for her own. Clinton and her supporters won’t know for several days how much Thursday’s acceptance speech will improve her standing with voters — polls lag behind the events they measure because gathering accurate data takes time. In Trump’s case, the post-convention bounce started to show up in a significant way on Sunday in the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll of the presidential race. The boost continued to build for several days and Trump now holds a 7-percentage-point lead,...

    THE BOTTOM LINE ◾Donald Trump may be lucky to have picked an election in which change trumps experience. ◾When voters demand change, they are willing to overlook many foibles of the change candidate. To be sure, Donald Trump, is a long shot in betting markets to win in November. PredictIt, a popular legal wagering website, gives Hillary Clinton a 66 percent chance to win the presidency. She has consistently led Trump in that market for three months, as well as in the Iowa Electronic Markets. And Trump has trailed Clinton — with rare exceptions — in the poll averages by...

    Further polling since the Republican National Convention has tended to confirm our impressions from earlier this week: Donald Trump has almost certainly gotten a convention bounce, and has moved into an extremely close race with Hillary Clinton. But Trump’s convention bounce is not all that large. You can find polls showing almost no bounce for Trump, and others showing gains in the mid-to-high single digits. Those disagreements are pretty normal and, overall, the polls suggest a net gain of 3 to 4 percentage points for Trump. That would be right in line with the average bounce in conventions since 2004,...

    As the DNC ramps up to full force, new polling data from Gallup suggests that Hillary's favorability ratings have dipped to their lowest levels in the 24 years of her public career. The latest poll, conducted July 16-23, revealed that only 38% of respondents had a favorable view of Hillary vs. 57% unfavorable. This poll should come as little surprise to anyone who watched the DNC fiasco yesterday where the crowd of Democrats often erupted into chants of "Lock Her Up." We suspect that there is further downside for Hillary on the favorability scale as the majority of this poll...

    It's common for presidential candidates to get a bump from their conventions, and two new polls Monday suggest Donald Trump did indeed get that. But the new polls don't just show Trump's stock rising (however temporarily that may be); they also have some very bad news for Hillary Clinton and her already-declining personal image. Indeed, politically, she's doing as bad as she ever has — if not worse.

Cruz’s move, however, appears to have backfired. While 60% of Republican voters had a positive impression of the former presidential candidate before the convention, just 33% have one now.

Trump now has 42 percent support across the 11 battleground states surveyed — up from the 40 percent he had last week before the convention.

    Given the news today about cops being shot in Baton Rouge, I don’t know if it’s worth writing up any new polls before, say, November 1st. America’s too volatile a place in 2016 to have any confidence about what the public’s mood will be next week, let alone three months from now. For what it’s worth, though, here you go. CNN has the race 49/42, NBC/WSJ has it 46/41, and ABC/WaPo has it 47/43. Of the three, only the last one shows any movement towards Trump, which is interesting since their sample is D+10.

Of course, politicians and others holding seats of power, fully cognizant of the opportunities provided by this herd mentality, deftly manipulate the masses — particularly through public polls during the lead-up to presidential elections.

    Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by six points, 44% to 38%, in a Fox News poll of registered voters released Wednesday, marking an uptick from similar polls released in May and June.
