    Hillary Clinton holds a decisive advantage over Donald Trump in the competition for votes in the electoral college, leading in enough states to put her comfortably over the 270 majority needed to win the presidential election in November, according to a new SurveyMonkey poll of 15 battleground states conducted with The Washington Post.

    On October 3, 2016 Twitter deliberately “shadowbanned” (censored) 32 of Trump’s tweets, plus it deleted one other tweet. When Twitter shadowbanned Trump’s tweets, the general public can no longer see any of the tweets, and only users who replied or re-tweeted the tweet’s can see said censored tweet — or if one knows the URL/web address of the tweet, one can see said censored tweet.

  • Clinton is now beating Trump in 5 must-win battleground states

    Voters in five battleground states declared Hillary Clinton the winner of this week’s debate against Donald Trump, boosting her fortunes in those key races, a new poll showed Thursday. A majority of voters in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia all told Public Policy Polling that Clinton got the better of Trump in their first showdown. The Public Policy poll was taken Tuesday and Wednesday, giving voters at least one night to digest Monday’s slugfest at Hofstra University. Clinton’s debate also helped her bounce to leads in all five states, according to the poll. In four-way races that include...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is surging in battleground states Iowa and Virginia in newly released polls, consistent with the national trend reported this week by Reuters-Ipsos and other major polling operations. A handful of swing states—experts always mention at least five, and no more than eleven—will determine the winner of the presidential race, mainly concentrated in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southwest. Polling numbers from two of those states seem to fit a larger trend over the past two weeks of improving chances for Donald Trump to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton....
  • Poll Analysis: With Virginia now tied, Trump is rapidly closing battleground gap

    The shift in Virgina seems rather stunning. Only a few days ago, most pundits, including conservative ones, had written the state off. With the last two polls showing a virtual tie, that analysis is out the window. Pennsylvania is also closing, but still sits at a 6.0 point margin for Hillary, so for now, it will remain out of the index. This shift is significant because Trump can pull into the lead just by bringing Republicans into his tent. He has not been achieving the ninety percent level of Republican support that a GOP candidate typically receives. He has been...

    The conventional wisdom is that Pennsylvania is Trump's surest way to 270. Trump is trailing in the Pennsylvania RCP average by 7.3 points, so quite a few pundits are confidently writing Trump off as a sure loser. The problem with this confidence, however, is that Pennsylvania is not Trump's surest bet. In fact, the Midwest plus Florida and possibly New Hampshire, provides a clearer and currently quite realistic path to 269, the actual number that he needs. Trump is only trailing by an average of 2.5 points in these states, with the largest lead being four points, but the rest...

  • Latest battleground poll reveals John Kasich would have a slight lead on Hillary Clinton

    Hillary Clinton may have a safe lead over Donald Trump across all seven battleground states, but that's certainly not the case with all of her potential Republican competitors. Ballotpedia's battleground poll out Wednesday reveals that Clinton polls a bit behind Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) across all seven states, averaging 40 percent to Kasich's 44 percent. Clinton polls even against House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), with both averaging 42 percent. However, if the Republican Party does hand Trump the nomination, Ballotpedia indicates that Clinton can likely expect success across the battleground states of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania,...

    Hillary Clinton has a huge money advantage over Donald Trump, and she’s spending it like a wild banshee. The media is trying to create a narrative that nobody likes Trump enough to send him money. They are banking on making Trump the most unlikeable, unelectable candidate to satisfy their feelings and agenda but Trump is fighting back. Trump knows Hillary is being bankrolled by overseas interests, and he’s going to spread that information around early and often. Remember, the media’s agenda is not to help Trump; it’s to destroy Republicans. Anywhere they can drive a wedge in between the party...

    Back in the day at might be worried watching or hearing the news about how the Democratic candidate was outspending the Republican candidate in the battleground states. Donald Trump, The GOP presumptive nominee, do things his way in the Republican primary by basically spending less again 16 other candidates but traveling more to reach out to grassroots patriotic Americans and talk to them heart-to-heart. I won't question Trump because his model has already got him where he is. Trunk continues to defy the odds even with the media turning everything he does into a negative spin. Trump can't even go...

    Hillary Clinton trails a generic Republican presidential candidate by double-digits among voters in six key battleground states, according to a new poll from the GOP firm Vox Populi. The survey, conducted on behalf of the conservative super-PAC American Crossroads, found an unnamed GOP candidate taking 51 percent support among voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia. Clinton takes only 41 percent support among voters in those states, according to the poll. The survey found Clinton’s favorability rating deep underwater, with 40 percent having a positive view of the former secretary of State against 53 percent who said they...

    Even in a national election shadowed by geopolitical instability and a heated debate over immigration, it’s a rare campaign that has voters hearing about the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and maritime disputes between Japan and the Republic of Korea. But in these suburbs a few miles from the nation’s capital, these are only a few of the unconventional issues rearing up in the battle for control of Congress. Candidates up and down the ballot have hurled themselves into winning over the area’s swiftly growing Asian-American population, striving to sell themselves as champions of small business and public education, and...

    Within a few days, the Gallup Poll and the Battleground Poll provided more polling data that demonstrates just how much conservatives outnumber liberals in America. The Gallup Poll, in its August 26 “State by State: Key Metrics for 2014,” provided data that reveals that in all but three states – Hawaii, Vermont, and Massachusetts – conservatives outnumber liberals. This is consistent with all prior Gallup Poll results for many years. In a few of these polls, conservatives have outnumbered liberals in every state of the nation, and in a few of these polls, liberals outnumber conservatives in one or two...

    You already know how the national polling looks, but those numbers include the opinions of many Americans whose votes will have zero impact on the much-watched battle for control of the Senate. NPR clears out New Yorkers, Californians and Texans (among others) from its sample, focusing instead on the following 12 states: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina and West Virginia. A look at the results, bearing in mind that presidential approval rating has historically been the single most significant variable in midterm election cycles: That would be (38/58) overall, including an...

    The latest Battleground Poll, compared with prior Battleground Polls, shows the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as “conservative” dropping. The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population. Blacks are 13% of the Battleground sample, a smidgen more that the black percentage of the population. As I noted a few...

The scandal was revealed after Breitbart Texas released the latest James O'Keefe undercover video on what appeared to be a Battleground Texas illegal voter data-mining operation to help elect Wendy Davis.

    SAN ANTONIO, TX–The most recent James O’Keefe expose released on Breitbart Texas showed a Battleground Texas field organizer engaging in a seemingly illegal data mining operation where confidential information from voter registration forms was being collected in an effort to help elect Wendy Davis as governor of Texas. The video has now triggered a process by which an investigation carried by the State of Texas may occur. In an interview with local San Antonio news, Bexar County Election Administrator Jacquelyn Callanen admitted to submitting a report to Texas Secretary of State.
