  • A July 4th trip on New Jersey's Revolutionary War trail

    Welcome to Independence Day weekend, New Jersey. It's a time to cast aside all the aspersions brought on by the Turnpike's industrial corridor and celebrate our proud Revolutionary War history. Simply put, New Jersey, more than any other state, was the place where the battle was fought, nearly lost, and ultimately won. With a four-day holiday weekend, it's a chance to make a historic scavenger hunt to put New Jersey's legacy in perspective. That is, if the state lawmakers can play nice on the budget impasse and get the parks they're supposed to run reopen. Here are some stops along...
  • Trump base shows signs of cracking

    President Trump's previously resilient base is showing signs of cracking. A new Reuters/IPSOS tracking poll, released Friday afternoon, showed the president with a job approval rating of 75 percent among Republicans. Political professionals generally view it as worrying for any commander-in-chief if his approval ratings with his own party dip below 85 percent - and downright alarming if they go below 80 percent. "Seventy-five [percent] is certainly a new number and I would want to see something that would either back that up or refute it," said GOP pollster David Winston, whose resumé includes work for former Speaker Newt Gingrich...

    To understand the fraudulent nature of supposedly "scientific" polls, you only need to review the Twitter Feed of their directors. Patrick Murray is the Director of Monmouth Polls. Review his Twitter Feed here. Patrick Murray, Monmouth Polling Director Then ask yourself whether you think someone as open and as proud of their pro-Hillary, anti-Trump bias as he is, will produce anything but a biased poll that supports his chosen candidate.

    The Florida geography is also working against us. Hillary has 53+ Field Offices and they’re empty of volunteers. This lack of enthusiasm is showing up in the voting responses and it’s killing us. The “cell phones” rationale will only hold out for so long.

    Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by 11 points in Colorado, according to a new Monmouth poll, 49 percent to 38 percent among likely voters. Seven percent support Libertarian Gary Johnson, and three percent support Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Both candidates have solidified their support among those in their party, with 95 percent of Democrats supporting Clinton and 90 percent of Republicans supporting Trump. Trump only had 78 percent of their support in July. [Snip] Monmouth also polled the senate race, finding that incumbent Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet has a large lead over his opponent, Darryl Glenn, 53 -...

    Hillary Clinton comes out ahead by seven points in the latest national poll by Monmouth University, down from a 13-point lead in the last Monmouth poll in early August. In a head to head match, Clinton leads Trump, 49-42, among likely voters. When including third-party candidates, Clinton leads 46-39, with Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Jill Stein at 2 percent. The latest poll shows Clinton's lead over Trump shrunk since Monmouth's poll from Aug. 4-7, where she was 13 points ahead of Trump, with Johnson at 7 percent and Stein at 2 percent, among likely voters.

    Donald Trump carries a 14-point lead over Hillary Clinton among North Carolina's independent voter population but still trails the former secretary of state by 2 percentage points overall, a new Monmouth University shows. Clinton leads Trump 44 to 42 percent among North Carolinians who are likely to vote in the November election, while 7 percent of voters back Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and 6 percent remain undecided. While the GOP presidential nominee lags far behind Clinton among black, Hispanic and Asian voters (76 to 13 percent), he draws 44 percent support among independents to Clinton's 30 percent. Trump also bests...

    West Long Branch, NJ – In a head-to-head contest for president, Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 7 points among registered voters and by 8 points among likely voters. The Democrat’s lead shrinks by a point when potential third party support is taken into account. Both major party nominees remain unpopular, but more voters say it is important to keep Trump rather than Clinton out of the White House. The latest Monmouth University Poll also finds that attitudes towards terrorism and the Republican nominee’s proposed Muslim ban have not changed much since the Orlando tragedy. Currently, Clinton holds a 7...
  • Florida poll: Donald Trump leads Marco Rubio

    CNN ^ | March 7, 2016
    Donald Trump is leading Marco Rubio in the Florida senator's home state by 8 percentage points, a Monmouth University poll out Monday shows. Trump has the support of 38% of Florida's likely GOP primary voters, compared to 30% who back Rubio, 17% for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and 10% for Ohio Gov. John Kasich. The snapshot of Florida comes before the state's crucial 99-delegate, winner-take-all primary set for March 15. It's a must-win for Rubio, who has fallen behind Trump and Cruz in the delegate race after taking only two of the first 20 Republican contests. The poll undercuts the...

    Trump’s had enough solid numbers this week to expect he’ll win tomorrow night going away, but if you’re desperate for hope and looking around for data to cling to, there’s plenty out there. CNN’s survey earlier this week showed Trump dropping like a rock after his “Bush lied!” performance at the debate, from 40 percent to 31. Two days ago we got a national poll from WSJ/NBC showing Ted Cruz, whose support has been flat in South Carolina this week, nosing past Trump to take a two-point lead. Now here comes the WSJ/NBC again — this time using a different...

    If The Donald needed a bit of an ego boost heading into tonight’s debate (okay… I choked a bit typing that phrase) he got one from Monmouth last night. Though he was already pretty much crushing the field nationally and in all the states except possibly Iowa, the pollsters recorded Trump breaking the 40% barrier for the first time in that survey and threatening to hit the “Game Over” benchmark of 50. (Politico) Donald Trump just got a little more vault in his ceiling. Nationwide, the polling-obsessed Manhattan multi-billionaire and leading Republican presidential candidate broke into the 40s on Monday.According...

    The Friday politics panel of CNN’s New Day agreed that Republican Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign was in trouble, citing his poor poll numbers and his wooden attacks on Donald Trump. CNN’s John King noted that while Trump’s poll numbers have gone up and Ben Carson more than tripled his support, Bush’s support has fallen from 12% down to 8% in the newest Monmouth poll. “There’s a reason that Bush better get ‘damn mad,’” King said, quoting Bush’s attack on Trump. “He’s in trouble.” “He’s in big trouble,” agreed AP’s Julie Pace.

    Donald Trump has reached a new high in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. According to a Monmouth University survey released on Thursday, Trump takes 30 percent support nationally, a four-point gain over the same survey from before the first GOP debate. Ben Carson is a distant second place in the poll, taking 18 percent support. The retired neurosurgeon has risen sharply in the polls over the past month. He was at only 5 percent support in the same poll from early August. The rest of the Republican field isn’t even in the same ballpark. Former Florida Gov. Jeb...

    This is the biggest challenge to New York racing in a long time. Monmouth Park, in New Jersey, will offer the highest daily average purses in America in what could be an elite thoroughbred meeting in direct competition with Belmont and Saratoga. The one-year Monmouth experiment, which cleared a major hurdle by gaining the approval of horsemen on Monday, runs from May 22 to Sept. 6 and offers daily average purses of $1 million. By comparison, Saratoga Race Course in 2009 offered $730,000 daily to lead the nation. Belmont Park this year runs from April 30 to July 18 and...

    CAMP STRIKER — Iraqi Army and Coalition Soldiers conducted Operation Monmouth, a combined air assault in Habbash Village to search for weapon caches and suspected criminals, Aug. 27. “This was a good mission,” said 2nd Lt. Muhamed Shuker Humood, platoon leader in 2nd Company, 2nd Battalion, 23rd Brigade, 17th Iraqi Army Division. “The Habbash Village was once a very bad area, but because of increased security and presence from both us and the coalition, it has become safer.” A total of 25 IA Soldiers participated in the mission. Fifteen were inserted via UH-60 Black Hawk, while the rest convoyed to...

    A former FBI intelligence analyst who worked under two vice presidents could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison Wednesday for passing secret U.S. documents in a plot to topple the Philippine government. Leandro Aragoncillo, 48, who worked as a military aide to vice presidents Al Gore and Dick Cheney before joining the FBI as a civilian employee at Fort Monmouth, pleaded in 2006 to four charges. The most serious charge, conspiracy to transmit national defense information, can carry the death penalty, but under his plea agreement, Aragoncillo instead faces 15 to 20 years in prison. A co-conspirator,...

    Monmouth was a memorable battle in several respects. Although it was fought to a draw, each side could take pride in the outcome. For Gen. Henry Clinton, who had never before commanded in battle, it climaxed a bold and well-directed venture in which he succeeded in getting most of his army and all of his 1500 wagons through some seventy miles of enemy territory. For Washington it was a triumph that an army that only a few months before had been reduced to a few thousand half-naked and ill-disciplined troops could stand up to the pride of the British...
