    In Virginia, one of the Bloomberg disarmist groups is attempting to shut down one of the few gun shops near the nations capitol. One of the more destructive and sadly, successful, disarmist memes has been the alienation of the gun culture from education and the schools. In my recollection, it started with the destruction of rifle, shotgun, and pistol teams in the Universities, with many ranges being closed and never reopened as ROTC was chased off of Campus during the Vietnam war and after. It spread to high schools and grammar schools, and reached a legislative high with the Federal...

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll reveals that eight in 10 Hispanic voters (82 percent) have a negative view of the Republican presidential frontrunner and, for 73 percent, that disdain is "strongly unfavorable."

    Even so, if I’m not mistaken, these are the first two polls anywhere since Trumpmania broke big that don’t show him on top.
  • Donald Trump is party's 'best chance' of winning 2016 election, say Republicans

    Republicans increasingly believe that Donald Trump is the presidential contender who stands the best chance of winning back control of the White House in next year's election, a new poll has found. The figures come as Republican presidential hopefuls are said to be about to launch a multi-pronged attack against Mr Trump at tonight's debate in an increasingly desperate bid to staunch his apparently inexorable rise. More than one third – 39 per cent - of Republican primary and caucus voters now view Mr Trump as the candidate with the best chance of winning the 2016 presidential election, according to...

    BEN CARSON WINS ! BEN CARSON WINS ! BEN CARSON WINS !… ADVERTISEMENT It was last month, amid the failing direct GOPe attacks against Donald Trump, when we predicted Wall Street/Team Jeb’s approach would shift to promoting Ben Carson instead. We even shared their targeted date to peak Carson would be the CNN debate. All media (Madison Ave., Hollywood, Park Row) would be called in for the assist. Iowa poll okay for Trump, if right, but terrific for Ben Carson, also topping favorability by very big margin. — Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) August 31, 2015 Well?….. After two weeks of continual...

    Chin up, Jeb fans. It could be worse. You could be fans of Marco Rubio, who’s trailing Trump by 18 or 28 points there depending upon whether you trust PPP or Gravis more. Trump’s primary-night victory party at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach will be epic, the final stage of his transformation into Rodney Dangerfield’s establishment-smashing country-clubber in “Caddyshack.” In the meantime, a question: Isn’t Jeb Bush supposed to be popular in Florida? When was the last time anyone checked on that, 2005? Only 40% of voters in the state think Bush should keep running, compared to 47% who think he...

    Donald Trump continues to plow ahead in Florida, while Jeb Bush continues to flounder. This according to a new Gravis Marketing poll. The poll, released Monday, revealed more bad news for the former governor. Ben Carson has vaulted ahead of Bush, leaving Jeb in third. Gravis polled 1,584 registered voters from September 5 to 11 via automated phone calls and cell-phone responses. And, much like we're seeing in Iowa and New Hampshire, Trump and Carson are polling strong in first and second place while Bush is coming in at third. The results show Trump holding a 33 percent lead in...

    A new survey in Florida shows 47 percent of voters want Jeb Bush to drop out of the GOP presidential race, and 48 percent would prefer Marco Rubio do the same.

In second place is Dr. Ben Carson with 17 percent. Bush and Rubio fall into line next in Florida. Bush is in third place with 13 percent support, while Rubio gets 10 percent and is in fourth place.

    Only once since the beginning of August had any poll showed Trump leading by less than double digits, and that poll had him up seven. Today’s four-point lead over Carson is the slimmest advantage he’s had since Trumpmania started to break big six weeks ago. In fact, with a six-point margin of error in the new NYT/CBS survey, it’s possible that Carson has already passed Trump for the lead nationally. How’s that for a pre-debate aperitif?Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, whom many thought would be the last two men standing for the nomination, are at eight percent. Combined.Mike Huckabee...
