  • Clinton Vaults to a Double-Digit Lead, Boosted by Broad Disapproval of Trump (POLL)

    This is a game. This poll is simply not true. There is no way in hell Clinton is winning men. This is an end of the election narrative driver for the msm. Notice how they are totally ignoring IBD TPP which has basically confirmed the LA Times USC poll?

    The IBD TPP tracking shows Trump slightly ahead. LA Times shows the race essentially tied with Trump slightly ahead. Rasmussen shows Trump ahead. The latest MI poll shows Clinton ahead by 5 in a 4 way 8 in a 2 way. I think Trump could very well win MI. While a lot of attention has been paid to the hispanic vote and the woman’s vote they are totally ignoring the male and white vote except when it is to deride it. Men tend to vote at a rate a few points less than women. Men tend to occupy those classes of manufacturing jobs that Trump is talking about bringing back. Trump is winning Men by double digits and in the LaTimes USC and IBD TPP tracking his man card is much bigger than Clinton’s woman card. I’ve not dug into the details of whether men are more likely to vote but I suspect that is indeed the case.

    I agree with him on almost everything but I can see how some can disagree. Some GOP are dedicated globalists, others are self haters who buy into pc dogma, and others are hereditary GOP with no real principles driving them. Some disagree on tone which always puzzles me. How is one supposed to act when we have Washington DC so seriously failing whether it is the 21 trillion debt, the endless string of lost military engagements, the failed trade deals, the failed education system, the lost jobs, the immigration invasion.

    Good to see Derek come around. While I personally am not offended or worried about Trump. His personality defects as some see them are no worse than any number of other Presidents and he will be by far one of the most transparent Presidents if elected. He speaks his mind and even if you don’t always agree with what he says or how he says it there is little doubt that he is mostly being straight up. We don’t have to worry that he is giving entirely different speeches behind the scenes to donors. We don’t have to worry that someone is promising him money to alter his positions. The Trump we’ve seen minus the media filter is the Trump we get and I find that refreshing. Politicians are often known as being two faced scum and while Trump the showman is not exactly the same as Trump in private they are absolutely inseparable and they are not the product of some focus group designed to trick the public. Trump is his own man and no matter what the media does will never change that.

    As for the media filter if we look back honestly at history JFK was absolutely horrible to women and he committed offenses while President that are at least as great as those of Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton and I’m not a Nixon fan. LBJ was even worse. The primary difference of course is the media filter. While with JFK his misdeeds were largely cleansed with his tragic assassination but does anyone think the media would’ve come around to lionize Nixon if he had befallen the same fate as JFK during Watergate? The difference of course between now and then is that then the Press could get away with their white washing and water carrying. Today they are proudly strutting like glam prostitutes their biases. The press is no longer running an escort service but instead down on its knees in times square doing its dirty business and that as Derek expresses should disgust any normal person more than the worst of Trump’s perceived personality defects.

    There is nothing that stops anyone from talking to voters as they enter the polls as long as you do not block those voters entrance. Also in those 59 precincts in Philly I’d make sure to identify Republicans that are committed to voting for Trump and other GOP and I’d have them take a smart phone pic of their ballots so that if some how we run into the situation again we’d have “check votes” to use to make a case when clear fraud is evident. Team Romney really wasn’t that good. They wasted a ton of money on project ORCA which failed.

    The whole idea that one black supporter is skewing the latimes poll is bunk.

    Actually given the nature of this race and the two candidates typical polls which are running in “the wild” with miniscule response rates very likely are less accurate than the LA Times which has a stable representative sample. The real outlier polls are the ones showing Clinton running away with the race. The majority of polls show the race within the MOE. I also think that the increased use of push polling by the MSM where they ask unrelated often biased questions to the question of who they are going to vote for is causing skewing.

    It will ultimately come down to the turnout of course. I don’t believe there is any evidence of a huge Democrat advantage ala 2008. The race still looks a lot more like 2004 and I expect we will see I further reset to a pre Obama electorate. Clinton is not Obama. She is not going to drive marginal voters to the polls. She is not going to increase minority turnout or young people turnout no matter what the polls show.

    I expected this to happen but I wouldn’t worry too much. These kind of things have to work there way through. Now if at the end of next week we don’t see a turn around then we have a real problem. I did notice that the latest PA poll shows a very narrow margin of four points. Right now team Trump needs to hammer home 3 core messages.

    1. Clinton is the continuation of the failed Obama administration and Trump will end those policies.

    2. Voters need to be continually reminded that the Clintons have a history of abuse and shaming of Bill Clinton’s victims. They can NOT let the media get away with the idea that Trump is some how worse for his crude comments than the Clintons are for their very REAL abuses.

    3. Team Trump needs to compare and contrast Trump’s very real accomplishments versus Clinton’s history of failure and corruption.

    Many of the interview type polls have push poll anti Trump questions embedded this does several things. It causes Trump voters to self screen out and suppresses Trump voter self id. The benefit of the LA Times USC poll is that it is weighted partially based on whether one voted for Romney or Obama. I tend to trust the LA Times more because it aligns with bellwether Ohio.

  • Luntz Focus Group Overwhelmingly Turned Off By Trump at GOP Debate (Flashback)

    09/28/2016 6:20:18 AM PDT · 18 of 22
    Maelstorm to MNDude

    Luntz focus groups would provide more value if the people going in did not know they were going to be on TV and also weren’t in a communal arrangement. Both things skew results. Also they skew selection. The people who are going to make themselves available for a focus group on a debate night will not necessarily be representative. There is also regional considerations. Also there are more considerations in debates than sheer performance. People judge and weigh things differently.

    I personally didn’t think Trump had the best time of it however Hillary while she succeeded in unloading the worst of her arsenal of anti-Trumpness she did not really offer anything that would shift an undecided voter to her camp. Trump also did get his message out even though he clearly was restrained in attacking her. I think that was by design. If I had been coaching Trump I’d have advised that he NOT focus on body slamming Clinton in the first debate but merely making it through it more as a learning experience. The key thing I’d advise Trump after his performance is that he NOT elaborate on side issues like the birther thing. He should’ve simply said I’ve addressed this issue many times and moved on while pointing out that Clinton originally questioned Pres Obama’s birthplace. Trump’s cringe worthy moment was when he invoked Sean Hannity’s name in defense of whether he was for the Iraq war or not. Personally I would’ve told him to deal with it by saying “I never supported the idea of invading Iraq. I thought it was a bad idea but I did support the troops once the invasion began as did everyone”.

    While the focus may have been on Trump’s awkward moments. Clinton and her jokeresque Cheshire cat look and mannerisms only magnified the sense that she is an malevolent figure. Trump while awkward appeared all too human which is really his strength. As a left winger put it in an effort to deride him “Trump doesn’t even know how to talk. He sounds like any guy on the street not a president”. Trump I believe very well likely helped himself by not being dead set on winning and understanding that his first engagement with Clinton was not going to be his last. Trump learns quickly and in the next two engagements he will not let her off so easily. He lowered expectations which is actually good. Clinton by appearing to win upped her expectations which makes the road ahead much harder. Her team already is in full on gloat mode and nothing is easier to defeat than an arrogant leftist with their nose pointed toward the sky.

    Iowa appears to be solidly with Trump and the GOP which is where it should’ve always been given the demographics. The last GOP President to win Iowa was GW Bush in 2004 which I believe is indicative that this years race is a lot more like 2004 than 2012 or 2008. If that is the case Trump will win decisively. Nevada is also leaning Trump this cycle which gives even more credibility to the idea of a pre-Obama electoral status quo. Colorado polling is also looking better for Trump. The more I look at the numbers this year compared to 2004 the more what many are claiming are anomalous make sense.

    I watched the speech and while I’m not usually in favor of adding more requirements for employers I do like the idea of tax credits. Anytime people get to keep more of their own money to take care of themselves and those they love I’m for it. I think using the existing unemployment fund to support this idea is a good approach and with the right limits it should work out. The big problem we’ve had is Obama has abused the unemployment system by extending unemployment beyond anything reasonable. I’d like to see unemployment be something that is tied to individuals where they accrue it and can use it up to the maximum contributed on their behalf by their employer but that is another topic altogether. I’ve never used unemployment in my entire life something that I’m thankful for.

    Bevin is right. A Clinton presidency combined with a left wing Supreme Court will set up this country up for bloodshed in more ways than one and a possible civil war because there will be a breaking point and states will want to leave the union. Are we going to sit by and just let a left wing SCOTUS take away our 2nd Amendment, our political speech, our religious liberty, and force feed us all the most radical anti American left wing ideas through Judicial fiat with the constitution used as a fig leaf to provide cover to their abuses of power? I certainly won’t. I want a peaceful revolution at the ballot box but we have to be honest with ourselves. The left is not known for its moderation and they will have in a Clinton presidency a level of political power not seen in America since FDR and maybe greater than that.

    Those who are dismissing the absolute existential threat a Clinton Presidency represents when combined with the absolute power of a far left Supreme court are just not living within reality. Do we think that the left will simply stand down and be reasonable? No what they will do is use the court combined with executive overreach to transform America in ways only Barack Obama could dream.

    I used to love Cruz. I’ve always had a love hate with Glenn Beck but I initially was all into his idea for the Blaze then he went soft in the head and the final line for me is when he populated his news shows with neoliberals and let them trash Heritage guys like Ryan Anderson. I thought the Blaze would be a place where conservative issues could be aired and discussed without the gang up that is typical on other news shows. When it was clear that was not the case I cancelled my Blaze subscription and haven’t looked back.

    Levin on the other hand is one that I’ve always prior to this election supported and enjoyed but he’s proven that while he is a conservative he is all about protecting the system and the gop status quo. He doesn’t understand the very real and valid disdain people have for the corporatist class that join with big government and mostly big liberals to push an agenda as insidious as that coming solely from the federal government itself.
    He doesn’t seem to get that most people are not eggheads or political navel gazers but people that have to be engaged on an emotional level. He defends hedge fund managers who behave like kings using their money to further mostly a far left agenda pushing us towards a new feudalism. He seems to think that the free market encompasses communist near slave labor and propping up China making it a world power in ways it could never have been without being enabled by the west. Its kinda of hard to make the argument for a free market that involves abusing the 3rd world as if it is one great big plantation. We the little people get cheap trinkets while those at the top become billionaires buying a level of influence that drives the culture and government in ways that are totally against what most of us want.

    I agree with your assessment. The GOP-E and even many rank and file GOP can’t seem to NOT self flagellate when the left wing goes into hysterics with its smear machine. Rather than simply replying when asked about something in a way that clearly smears Trump you have those like Ryan that can’t seem to figure out the art of saying “I really don’t know exactly what was said and I’m not going to comment.”. I might add that the “conservative media” has always been broken because it has never really achieved escape velocity from the messaging of the left wing liberal media.

    There is only a handful of online media including Breitbart, Drudge Report, and even Infowars (never thought I’d include that one) that doesn’t parrot the left wing messaging agenda. There is also the blogosphere which has done a yeoman’s job of expanding the push back against the pravda that is the msm. Even our talk radio titans often take their lead from the NY times, the AP, or any number of left wing sources and that isn’t even the worst part. The truly horrible part is that they start out with the context provided by the msm when they should be presenting an alternate context entirely.
    I’ve seen so called conservative media join in the destruction of our own candidates simply by contributing to the echo chamber of lies by adding credibility to the false narrative of the left.

    What we need is not more Foxnews. What we need are networks, cable news that is more like Breitbart, more like Drudgereport. We need media that drives and equal and alternative perspective to the left and the political class. We don’t need more Glenn Beck’s with their warped pollyanna coexistence strategy with the msm. We need media and leaders that will go out there ever day and rebuke, challenge, offer alternatives, and do battle with the narratives of the left.

    The reason Trump has been ahead in 2 FL polls and tied in another is because he has strengthened his Republican support and he is killing Clinton with Independents. I did some analysis based on party id compared to actual exit results going back to 2004 and Trump if he matches or exceeds Romney’s party vote share among GOP, Ind, and Dems he will defeat Clinton 49-46. The wild card is the third party vote. Though right now it appears to be hurting Clinton more than Trump. Team Trump needs to keeps its eye on Johnson and Weld so they don’t get to play the spoiler unopposed.

    Even scientific polling isn’t perfect and we have to realize that media prism still affects things. One thing that could be hurting him with some men and blacks is the appearance of a softening on immigration. When Trump starts doing things that makes him look like a regular politician it disheartens some of those marginal usually disenchanted voters that are invested in him as not being one.

    I think he will recover. The debates are ahead. His advertising is just now picking up and his ground organizations are mobilizing. Also Clinton is quickly reaching the end of her rope with a media that is already way out on a limb with her. There is a huge chance that other shoes will drop on her. She’s trying to run out the clock. That is never a good strategy and gives Trump a huge opening for a comeback.

    I don’t like to bet on the unseen but there are several factors about this race that makes it more likely than in 2012. Obama managed in 2012 to keep just enough of his demographic advantage to win even while losing independents. Trump in many polls is getting nearly twice as many independents as Romney if you go back and compare exit polls. He’s also has an advantage equal to or exceeding Clinton’s advantage with women. Men turned out at a slightly lower rate than women in 2012. Trump has potential to increase the men’s vote share. I know first hand that Trump appeals to blue color workers in ways that Romney never could. Southwest Virginia which till recent history was solid Democrat Trump is actually winning while losing elsewhere in the state though Virginia polling hasn’t been very good and should be suspect. Here is the example of the Cucinelli race.

    I feel the same way. If a GOP candidate doesn’t understand what is at stake with the potential of a Clinton presidency then they deserve to lose. The idea that ANY GOP would just throw the Supreme court to the left wing for what is likely to be 30-40 years and give Clinton a proverbial blank check where her every executive overreach can be rubber stamped and the constitution decimated further as the left wing justices change the constitution through their obscene rulings is lunacy. If for nothing else the courts being at stake should make it easy to support Trump.

    I think this is a lame attack. Trump has comedy central or the apprentice donate money he could’ve received as income to his Foundation or directly to a charity is not a scandal. This is the dumbest attack.

    MSM should be asking how any Military person can vote for Clinton given her record in Benghazi. This goldstar family crap is bs. The media doesn’t give a damn about the military and the Muslim shill for Hillary standing atop his son to lift up the women who helped put his son in his grave should be ashamed.
