So we've got this new poll from Florida Atlantic University, Trump up two, 43 to 41 over Hillary in Florida. We've got a Reuters poll that shows Hillary up 12 nationally, but remember in that poll they don't count the undecideds. Now, in all these battleground states, the narrative is that Trump is losing. Who cares about the national polls, they say, in these battleground states, states Trump has to win, you can barely see him anymore. He's in the rearview mirror...

She's got her Nehru jacket or Mao jacket on, she's got long slacks, practically gloves.

I think there's still ideological components to this race, particularly in the area of Trump's outreach to African-Americans. Now, clearly, if you want to do that and do it right, there has to be an ideological component to it. And there's some other things in the campaign that are that way, but...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Are you kidding me? I don't believe this. Are you kidding me? The State Department says it doesn't know if Iran is using its new cash to fund terrorism. Seriously? It's entirely possible Iran used its new cash to fund terror, State Department. What an admission. But they can't be sure that they're using their new cash, the $150 billion unfrozen with the Iranian nuclear deal once the sanctions were killed. This is unreal. The State Department, the wizards of smart, "Well, we don't know. We can't determine whether or not the Iranians are actually using this...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The first hour of the program was devoted to a discussion of what happened in Belgium and why it's happening all over Europe. It's just uncontrolled immigration of militant Islamists and terrorists, combined with multiculturalism in all of these countries, which is destroying the native cultures of all of these European nations, which is done purposefully. Left-wing multiculturalism is aimed at destroying the culture of the host country it seeks to either conquer, overthrow, damage, or what have you. And it's happening here, folks. We've got a robust multicultural movement here which is doing its best to...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I'm still sitting here not really believing what I heard yesterday from Chris Cuomo, that sound bite about communism in which he said communism has got to work to promote individual liberty and upward economic mobility for everybody. I still can't get over this. That was such an eye-opener for me, how people have been lied to by, I don't know how many years, university professors -- probably throughout the education level -- about what communism is. You know, if the truth about communism, if it's told, nobody could end up supporting it, if people actually knew...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Yeah, so Obama is in Cuba. A bunch of the Drive-By Media are in Cuba and they're wearing Che Guevara shirts and other Cuban revolutionary garb. Chris Cuomo, the son of Mario "The Pious" is wearing a shirt that Castro gave Mario "The Pious," as he's there with ABC. BREAK TRANSCRIPT RUSH: As I said to open the program, President Obama has landed in Havana. One small step for man, one giant leap for Marxism. We have a montage of Drive-By Media types. This is the most excited they have been for an airplane landing since Gorbachev...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Nah, Obama doesn't even expect this judge to get a hearing. He's too old, folks. If Obama was serious about the pick, he'd have nominated somebody much younger that's gonna be on the court, I mean, decades. Merrick Garland is 63. He sounds like a nice guy. And you know the fix is in when we've got people telling us, "Hey, you know what? This guy could really satisfy a bunch of conservatives." Come on, folks, could we get real? You know, this is where it all starts to break down. I've been watching conservatives on TV,...
  • Rush Limbaugh: "If Trump Wins Florida and Ohio, It'll Be Trump vs. Cruz -- And It Won't Be Over"

    "Now, the theory is that a majority of votes that are currently for Cruz, for Rubio, for Kasich, a majority would go to Cruz." Sorry Rush, but I think you are dreaming if you think Cruz can beat Trump, especially in the northern states.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I got three stories here, and I don't know what to think about it. I need your help. Let me give you the headlines of these three stories: "Ohio's Dirty Little Secret: Blue-Collar Democrats for Trump -- If Donald Trump wins the Republican Party nomination, his path to the White House will run through this working-class city with a knack for picking presidents. No Republican has ever won the White House without Ohio. And nowhere better reflects the challenges and opportunities Trump faces in his 2016 presidential quest than Canton, a once-booming industrial..." It's where the Pro...

They're getting a bunch of leftists to join them in their supposed fear of what will happen to the GOP if Donald Trump gets the nomination. We have audio sound bites of this coming up Now, one thing about this I've never understood, but I think now it's coming into focus, I have never understood, like at that now famous dinner that I had with Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham in New...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I just saw something on Fox. Let me tell you a little story: Snerdley came in here today. He and I've had a back-and-forth over Mitch McConnell, over whether McConnell's gonna cave on Obama Supreme Court's' Supreme Court choice to replace Scalia. And I told Snerdley what I've told everybody: "When McConnell first spoke up about this, he said 'should not,' 'Obama should not, and we 'should not,'" meaning the Senate, "'confirm anybody, given presidential year.'" And I pointed out: "He did not say 'would not.' He said 'should not.' That's Republican establishment wiggle room." And Snerdley,...

    RUSH: Okay, Andrew, San Francisco. Great to have you. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.CALLER: Hey, Rush. Thanks for taking my call. I want to explain the situation that happened to my wife this past Saturday. She was traveling from San Francisco International Airport to the East Coast on United Airlines, and what happened was she was in a lineup. You know how you line up into the gate? And she asked in a normal tone of voice... She was talking politics with fellow passengers as it's a very big topic these days naturally. So during the...

    RUSH: Now, folks, I went through a lot of mainstream media over the weekend and this morning, and there's a theme out there, and you might have heard it bandied about in any number of places. You've heard it bandied about in the Republican establishment. You've heard it bandied about in the campaign, certain sectors. You've heard media people talk about it -- and that is that Donald Trump cannot win a general election. "He just can't. Why, his negatives are way too high. It'd be the absolute worst thing the Republican Party could do!" Who's telling us this? Once...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, remember when that happened in the Saturday night debate, a lot of people were shocked watching this. I immediately evolved a theory to explain it. Here you have the Republican front-runner -- and let's review. The Republican front-runner defended Planned Parenthood. "A great organization that does great things for women's health." It's almost a cliche! It's what left-wing, Planned Parenthood defenders say. They're an abortion mill! They are an abortion factory! The lion's share of their so-called "funding," their income, comes from performing abortion. They don't do mammograms, for example. The idea that Planned Parenthood is...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So it was Saturday afternoon, and I was immersed in a project. I did not have the television on. I was not connected online to anything that was providing me a news feed, and I do not have news alerts that bop into me. I've not set those up 'cause I have weeded out all this harassment from notifications. So I get a text from a friend says, "Our country is cursed." I said, okay. Wrote back. "Why?" "It's just unbelievable. It just seems like the decks are so stacked against us." "What's going on?" was my...
