  • Revealed: Dems Fear 'Secret Trump Vote'

    07/25/2016 5:36:37 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 86 replies
    Advisors to Hillary Clinton are worried that Democratic white men are lying to pollsters and secretly plan to vote for Republican Donald Trump. "I worry that there is a bit of a secret Trump vote," said influential pollster Celinda Lake. She has proof revealed in polls that find more white male support when live people are doing the interviewing and less support for Clinton in anonymous online surveys. "The pattern is in the online surveys, even if you control for demographics, Trump does three to nine points better than in telephone surveys. So it really does suggest that there is...

    With start of the Democratic National Convention just three days away, Democratic groups are expressing dismay that Hillary Rodham Clinton is neck and neck with Donald Trump in the polls. "Were PANICKED, friends," said an email shot from the Democratic Governors Association. The group and other Clinton supporters are concerned about the polls and the new analysis by numbers guru Nate Silver showing Clinton's lead down to three points. The RealClearPolitics average is even worse. Today's analysis has Clinton's lead at 2.8 points. "This is not good," said the DGA fundraising email. Their note: We're PANICKED, Friends: Nate Silver just...

    Why? Because Donald Trump delivered Thursday night and did what he needed to do. No, he didn’t deliver a speech with great oratorical flourish. No, he didn’t broaden the base of the party significantly though he did speak about minorities and the LGBTQ community in ways that he hadn’t done before. What Trump did, and he did it very well, was to raise the stakes of the election and define it in his own terms. Law and order, crime in the streets, and terror. He managed to make the argument, compellingly, that these challenges were the central ones America faced...

Clinton’s response? “She said there are other issues. People are unhappy and they don’t trust institutions,” the senator explained.

    Democrats and Hispanic activists said Friday that they are increasingly alarmed by a spate of violence at Donald Trump rallies instigated by anti-Trump protesters, fearing that the incidents — widely viewed on television and social media — will only help the GOP candidate and undermine their attempts to defeat him. The latest flash point came Thursday in downtown San Jose, where a demonstration outside a Trump campaign rally quickly escalated out of control. Several protesters assaulted Trump supporters, ripped pro-Trump signs away from them and stomped on vehicles in the area. A flurry of video clips circulating Friday morning showed...

And Clinton has repeatedly said it was a "mistake," campaign chairman John Podesta wrote, in a 600-word missive intended to set the record straight and keep supporters calm as it faces a strong last-second challenge from Bernie Sanders while looking ahead to Donald Trump in the general election."

    For Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned expert in theoretical physics and cosmology, the success of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is a mystery. Hawking called Trump "a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” during an appearance on the United Kingdom’s ITV network. In addition to his scientific work, Hawking, who has a slow-progressing form of ALS, is a vocal advocate for individuals with disabilities. Trump drew criticism late last year on the campaign trail when he appeared to mock a New York Times reporter with a disability at a rally in South Carolina. Trump later denied mocking the...

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told supporters in an email that...

    Pressure is mounting on Bernie Sanders to end his campaign for president, with Democratic Party leaders raising alarms that his continued presence in the race is undermining efforts to beat presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump this fall. The new concerns come after Sanders’ recent wins over front-runner Hillary Clinton in Indiana and West Virginia. While those victories have provided his supporters a fresh sense of momentum heading into next week’s primaries in Kentucky and Oregon, they did almost nothing to help Sanders cut into Clinton’s nearly insurmountable lead in the delegates who will decide their party’s nomination. “I don’t think...

    U.S. President Barack Obama warned on Friday that occupying the Oval Office "is not a reality show," in a swipe at outspoken Republican candidate Donald Trump who is vying to replace him in the White House. Fighting with Obama is a battle Trump would likely relish as he tries to rally support within his own party. During hard-fought Republican primary campaigns, the billionaire delighted in responding to attacks from rivals and found that his support grew when he lashed out at his opponents. Asked about Trump at a media briefing in the White House, Obama called on the press and...

    In May of 1988 Gov. Michael Dukakis had a 10-point lead over his Republican rival, the same margin that Hillary Clinton has today. He lost. And she could, too. Don't comfort yourself too much by looking at the horse race polls. Those are about Donald Trump's weakness, not Clinton's strength. A fresh Washington Post poll shows that only 37 percent of American voters trust her, and the number is dropping -- even before her well-fed opponents have begun to pound the airwaves with slimy attack ads on her. And let's face it: It is not beyond the imagination to think...

After half an hour he'd basically said that (a) Romney lost in 2012, and (b) Romney begged Trump for his endorsement. That was it. Oh, and Trump is a lot richer than...

    On Tuesday, presidential hopeful Donald Trump held a rally in Michigan, and over 10,000 people attended, including women from all walks of life. But one black woman in particular spoke up, and what she had to say is beyond terrifying for the Democrats going into election season. If you follow the mainstream media, you know the current narrative is that women, especially minority women, wouldn’t ever vote for The Donald because of his “rampant sexism” combined with “racist rhetoric.” But, apparently, that’s not the case, as a video taken by the American Mirror shows.

    When Monica Lewinsky reemerged in the May issue of Vanity Fair, many speculated that the timing of the infamous former White House intern’s return to the spotlight was relatively good news for Hillary Clinton. It suggested, some speculated, that Lewinsky’s determination to air the dirty laundry of the 1990s in early 2014 was good timing for Clinton, and that the issue would be fully litigated long before the 2016 campaign began in earnest. That assumption went out the window this month when Lewinsky joined Twitter and began to speak openly and without regret about the incident that made hers...

And to the west, the militants had trapped thousands of members of Iraqi minority groups on a barren mountaintop, with dwindling supplies, raising concerns about a potential genocide.

Nate Silver, the political prognosticator pilloried by Republicans for correctly predicting President Obama's convincing victory in 2012, has perhaps just given the GOP another reason to curse him. He has predicted that Republicans are better than even odds to take back the Senate this November. At first blush, that might seem like something for Republicans to celebrate. Control of the Senate is the Grand Prize up for grabs in this fall's...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, believes the sharp rhetoric coming from Democrats about the government shutdown proves Tea Party Republicans are beginning to achieve changes that threaten the business-as-usual mentality in the nation's capital. "Why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they getting so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear?" Cruz asked during an phone interview with Glenn Beck on his radio show Thursday. Cruz suggested that it was because the American people were finally mobilizing against Obamacare. "That has the Left terrified out of their minds," Cruz said.

    Filmmaker Kevin Williams' documentary explores the relationship between African-Americans and the GOP.Fear of a Black Republican is the brainchild of Kevin Williams, a white Republican who has spent his life in Trenton, New Jersey. It was precipitated by an encounter with a county party chairman who scoffed at the idea that trying to get African-American votes in the majority-Black city would yield any success. The response made him wonder whether the Republican Party truly wanted to expand the base. Williams and his wife financed the film, which explores the party's history with African-Americans. Williams interviewed Republican leaders, including former Republican...

    Harold Meyerson doesn't want the LA Times to become a political toolNewser) – The Tribune Company's board likely views the Koch Brothers' attempt to buy its eight newspapers as a purely financial transaction. But almost no one else sees it that way, writes Harold Meyerson at the Washington Post. Thousands of LA Times readers, for instance, have already signed petitions against the move, because they see it for what it would be: "a political transaction … turning LA's metropolitan daily into a right-wing mouthpiece whose commitment to empirical journalism would be unproven at best." The deal would include the LA...

    Abort 73 ^ | Mike Spielman
    Any press is good press, so the saying goes. But this is not true for abortion. Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion-business in America, knows this full well—which is why their public talking points are built on euphemisms like "women's health" and "reproductive rights" instead of on "abortion." Despite hitching themselves to one of the most grisly practices known to man, Planned Parenthood has maintained a modicum of respectability by masterfully keeping abortion out of the spotlight—while quietly performing close to 1,000 abortions every day. As things stand right now, almost 30% of all the abortions in America take place at...

    Former congressman Allen West (R-Fla.), who lost his seat in November’s election but remains an icon in the conservative movement, said people like him scare liberals more than anything. “I’m speaking from experience when I tell you that there is nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government,” West said.

    Fox just showed clips from Romney and Obama rallies. Romney speaking before a roaring over-flowing 10K seat arena; looks confident and strong, audience roaring with approval at remarks about rebuilding business and the economy. Then Obama, speaking before a small crowd in Michigan, ol' snarly back again, eyes hooded, mouth twisted, full of anger and fear; attacking Romney as the anti-Christ. Audience applauds lightly. Obama looks and sounds scared and out of ideas.

    First came the nausea. Then came the anxiety. After months of watching Mitt Romney twist in the media glare, a growing number of President Barack Obama’s supporters — though confined for now to a noisy minority of liberals — are peering into the Obama-might-actually-lose abyss for the first time after last week’s disastrous first debate. Some progressives seem to be going into primal panic mode — to the profound annoyance of the Democratic professional political class and an Obama campaign predicting a rebound at next Tuesday’s debate in Long Island. “That’s my party: Irrational overconfidence followed by irrational despair,” quipped...
