The many polls stacked in Hillary Clinton’s favour continue to confound voters.
They know how they are stacked but why they continue to be so at this late stage is unclear. Is it really still just psy-ops or are the Left that denialist that they refuse to acknowledge the real possibility of a Donald Trump presidency?
Looking back to September 12-13, Rasmussen had Trump leading Clinton by two points with an astounding 53% of the non-black minority vote and 23% of black votes. Most aggregate sites exclude Rasmussen from their poll round ups because they are seen as being too conservative, therefore, ‘discredited’. Revisiting this poll today makes me think it is accurate then and now.
Indian here. You basically need to have your head examined if supporting Crooked Hillary if you’re an Indian.
She literally made a racist joke about Gandhi working in a gas station when she was a senator. She did this while on TV and then later “regretted” the remarks.
Am Indian, can confirm. I am a part of that 53%!!
Around that time, Nate Silver thought that Trump could win Ohio decisively. Currently, his projections are on a knife edge for the state. Interestingly, with regard to Washington, DC, Hillary lost a lot of points around mid-September, so Silver immediately made adjustments and began including a C-minus ranked poll, SurveyMonkey, in addition to the B-grade Google Consumer Surveys to make Clinton look more successful there.
Of course, the September polls were taken just after Hillary made her ‘basket of deplorables’ statement and had her 9/11 health incident. Since then, we had the debates and the Trump sex tape with debunked allegations. The Dems and their water carriers were able to redress the issue. Silver is sure that Hillary will take the key battlegrounds of Pennsylvania and Florida. And, of course, Clinton will win the election. However, if you look at the number of polling companies Silver uses, they are few in number. It would be a pleasure to see him proved wrong on the night. I remember Reagan’s rout in 1980 very clearly. I was amazed, because all the polling pointed to a Carter victory.
Today — bearing in mind the FBI’s reopening of the email investigation — Nate Silver says he still believes Clinton will win hands down, however:
At the same time, we haven’t seen the bottom completely fall out for Trump as seemed possible a week or two ago. There have been no major opposition-research dumps on Trump over the last week, and he’s been relatively quiet on the campaign trail, making less news than he usually does. (Obligatory caveat: That could change at any time.)
And probably will. Watch what happens this week in the news.
However, an IBD/TIPP poll of October 22 showed:
Clinton tied with Trump in a two-way race – which this isn’t – but behind two points in a four-way race – which this is.
IBD/TIPP was the most accurate of the 2012 polls at this point in the race.
Meanwhile, in blue Minnesota, it looks as if Trump is storming ahead in the state’s 8th district:
You may say, this is one congressional district and it does not represent the whole country. Right it does not, but it does represent old fashion[ed] Democrats. Democrats who do not really support the party’s position on social issues, but have traditionally voted for Democrats because they believed the Democrat was for the “worker”. This district could be a microcosm of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa. According to Wikipedia, Minnesota’s 8th district has voted Democrat for the past 4 presidential elections, so why would it be polling +12 for Trump???
Accurate Politics has a summary of what early voting is currently showing. So far, Trump is leading in Florida and Ohio. He is likely to win in Iowa, Nevada and North Carolina.
StatesPoll has more exciting polling news from the past week.
Pollster — and campaign manager — Kellyanne Conway has been doing a great job for Trump. One of the reasons he has been so buoyant lately is that the campaign is commissioning its own internal polling. She is also getting him more comfortable in using the Teleprompter so that he can now segue smoothly from prepared text into measured off-the-cuff comments. Some Democrat voters have noticed:
She is so good. Even my Clinton supporting mother admits it.
Of course, Trump, Conway and the Deplorables still have to deal with voter fraud, about which I will write on my site this week. Big Media have been telling their gullible viewers that there is no such thing. Obama says he doesn’t know what Trump is talking about. Unfortunately, Democrat voter fraud needs exposing and explaining to a new generation of voters. One would think that parents would do this, but they no longer do. And that is probably because of apathy. But I digress.
Last month, Trump launched his search for election observers:
Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election!
Not surprisingly, the Department of Justice ‘warns’ about the legality of polling station watchers.
We have to hope that what comes out about Hilldawg — and other high-ranking Dems — this week is so incriminating that undecideds and stay-at-homes decide to rush to the polls between now and November 8.
One big positive is that blacks are waking up to the fact that they are slaves living on Democrat urban plantations. Kevin Jackson started The Black Sphere in 2008 and has also written books about politics in the United States. He’s a thirtysomething who is black and Republican. On October 28, he wrote:
Sure there are many blacks who have been trained to vote for the Party of Lynching. However there are many blacks who have awakened to the game of the Left. Before you discount this, ask yourself how many black rappers and other black professed Democrats made videos about supporting Romney?
The reason for the defection is Democrats have decimated the black community. Put another way, Democrats have created almost every problem in the black community. Then their politicians come in every few years to compound the problems. They pretend to be Superman coming to save people from the very problems the politicians themselves have created …
As more and more blacks continue to awaken to the game of Leftism, the end to the Democrats’ reign of terror approaches. This is why the election of 2016 is so vital. For the first time in quite some time, America has hit a crossroad.
Liberals in all its evil forms wars with Conservatism. America is witnessing the most crooked attempt to marginalize the entire country. Former black Democrats now see what we have been trying to get them to see. This election is not about race, sex or religion. This fight is for freedom.
Too right. He includes a tweet from Greg Hilliard, Unity Activist:
#SourcesHaveConfirmed the entire Hood supports Donald Trump. I am the source.
Hilliard also tweeted:
I’m a young Black Man from the streets & I personally guarantee Trump wins the hoods vote. No one listening to polls
Alan He, a young Asian reporter for CBS Politics, was inspired by Mike Pence speaking in Virginia in the pouring rain on September 20. Check out the photo.
Pence seems to have become more Trump-like in the best of ways. He’s added gravitas from being around the Republican candidate. His suit and tie combinations have also improved, sharpening his image.
Sadly, his beagle Maverick died peacefully on October 25. He was 13 years old.
However, Big Media are desperate to stamp out any narrative that disagrees with theirs. They’re part of the rigged system. Trump continued to address this in his rallies last week as he did in the third debate. A Townhall article of October 24 picked up on these points, which are sure to further resonate with voters as we approach November 8:
His first point was that the media is not merely biased but an active partisan player for the Democrats …
Then there is electoral integrity. We’ve seen numerous investigations of voter fraud and no one cares …
And then there’s the corruption of the rule of law. Trump was right – Hillary should not even be running because if we had a single justice system – instead of one for the powerful and connected and another for everyone else – her unhealthy carcass would be in federal prison …
The solution is to demand the system do its damn job and root out corruption and earn back the default acceptance we would love nothing more than to be able to offer again, confident that the system is unrigged. Too bad if our refusal to simply acquiesce to your scam is inconvenient.
The Conservative Treehouse expressed similar sentiments on October 24:
Transgender bathrooms appear more important than border security. Trade deals, employment and the standard of living in Vietnam and Southeast Asia are more important to Wall Street and DC lobbyists, than the financial security of Youngstown Ohio. We get it. We didn’t create that reality, we are simply responding to it.
Deliberate intent and prudence ensures we avoid failure. The course, is thoughtful vigilance; it’s a strategy devoid of emotion. The media can call us anything they want, it really doesn’t matter…. we’re far beyond that.
Foolishness and betrayal of our nation have served to reveal dangers within our present condition. Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise. We know exactly who Donald Trump is, and we also know what he’s not. He is exactly what we need at this moment. He is a necessary glorious bastard.
Trump participated in the 3rd presidential debate, did this Facebook Live event, flew to Ohio for a HUGE rally, attended the Al Smith dinner, then flew to appear at another huge rally now in North Carolina.
Meanwhile Hillary went into a state of exhaustion after the 3rd presidential debate, managed to show her sour puss at the Al Smith dinner, AND HAS NOT DONE ONE OTHER THING IN AN ENTIRE WEEK.
On October 22, Trump gave his Gettysburg address, his Contract for the American Voter. It is his ‘100-day action plan to Make America Great Again’. It includes, among other things (visit the link):
- FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
- SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
- THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
- FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
- FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
- SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
Trump has held many rallies in Florida over the past several days, criss-crossing the state. The Conservative Treehouse has readers writing in to say that voters in the state are highly enthusiastic about his chances. He also took time out to meet with law enforcement officials in St John’s County on October 24. He gets quite a lot of information from these meetings which will help his administration. Rudy Giuliani also attended. That same day, he spoke in St Augustine — check out the 360° view — and had a record crowd of 15,000 in Tampa:
We will WIN FLORIDA,
#DrainTheSwamp in Washington D.C. and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
On October 23, Reince Priebus said on Face The Nation:
I think he is going to win. And I think he’s going to win because I think people in this country have had enough, and he’s the change agent.
The next day, after the aforementioned Florida rallies, Gateway Pundit enthused (emphasis in the original):
TRUMP IS PEAKING – AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME!
As reported earlier–
THERE IS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN THE ENTHUSIASM FOR DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY CLINTON!
On October 26, Trump officially opened the Trump International Hotel in the Old Post Office in Washington, DC, just a stone’s throw from the White House. He deftly turned this into an illustration of what he can do as president:
Trump: “this project demonstrates … how to work with our government and how to get things done”
Trump adds, “this is what I want to do for our country, right now just about everything anyone touches is broken…”
Trump declares “I want to work on a national plan on revitalization… I’m tired of being told what not can be done … the time is now”
Trump: “This is a beautiful hotel. Y’know, I am really going to enjoy looking at it next year from down the street at 1600”
Trump wraps DC remarks, “I’m asking America to join me in dreaming big … let’s close the history books on the failures”
He also had photos taken with his cheerful, beautifully groomed employees.
The fragrant Ivanka also spoke at the event.
In closing, on October 27, Trump enumerated a list of wild expenditures from Hillary’s time at the State Department. Most bewildering for me was this item:
$79,000 to buy copies of President Obama’s books
Trump went on to say:
I’m running to put a stop to the theft of American prosperity. I’m running to put an end to the corruption. I’m running to expose the crimes of our ruling class, and to give this country back to the middle class …
I am running to end the rule of this corrupt ruling class, and to give the government back to the people.
‘Mr Trump Goes to Washington’: doesn’t that sound great?
Until next time, MAGA!
