Polls don't mean a whole lot this far out, but yes, Trump does lead Hillary among white men without a college degree.
Hillary ties or leads slightly among white men with a college degree.
Hillary had a big lead among women.
Hillary has a big lead among Black.
And Hillary has a big lead among Hispanics.
But poll results will change over the next 5 months.
Hillary could never have ordered CIA anything. She's never been in the CIA chain of command.
A recent poll in Utah also shows Hillary in the lead, or at least tied in that state. I don't think there has been a poll yet in Texas, but there is some discussion that Texas' nearly 40% Hispanic population may put Texas in play, as well.
But, at the same time, Ohio and Pennsylvania might be in play for Trump.
It could be a very strange election.
Yes, I don't think it is a criminal investigation. He's simply being sued by people who say they were swindled by Trump U.
And there is the problem. As soon as our leaders are chosen with fists, and not at the ballot box, we have all lost.
We, legally it does matter who stated the rumble, but in most cases, anyone can stop it.
For someone who bills himself as a good - no great - businessman and business manager, this lack of management skills is very telling! He doesn't seem to be able to organize himself out of wet paper bag!
It's necessary to look at the state unemployment rates::
South Dakota 2.5%
New Hampshire 2.6%
South Carolina 5.8%
The question that no one is asking is, what is happening in states like Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas, that is not happening in the other states?
Interesting. I noticed that last night Trump was pulling in about the same number of votes in the Republican primaries as Sanders was getting in the Democrat ones. And Hillary was getting about twice the number of votes as Sanders. In earlier primaries (when Trump had a lot of competitors), he seldom even got as many votes as Sanders.)
Yes, completely unlike that "midwestern blue collar" guy who flies around in his own 757 with gold plating inside, and his name in huge letters on the outside.
Could be biased, but that's a possibility in every court case. In order to get a refusal, you need to have reason for that bias, and in most cases a good judge will recognize the problem and recuse him or herself. So, what is the reason for a bias here? As i asked before did the judge receive payment from Trump U, or get screwed by the school in some way?
What does that trial have to do with Trump's or anyone Hispanic ancestry? Did the judge gain any income from Trump U? Or did he or a family member get screwed by Trump U? If not, why recuse?
Yesterday, the president had a 45 minute phone call with Sanders to discuss towels - and when they should be thrown in. Hillary will discuss the same subject with him later tonight, when the voting is over. I guess the 3 million more primary votes that she already has, as well as the at least half dozen more state wins of hers mean something, now.
Many countries in Europe (The UK, France, Denmark, Poland, and more) asked for our help.No country in the Middle East ha asked for our help, except for Kuwait, and we provided the help they wanted. The only group that has threatened our homeland was a small group of Saudis and Egyptians, but for some reason we (GWB) decided that we should invade Iraq.
I have no problem protecting our nation, but looking for trouble in countries that don't want us, and whose Kalashnikovs and grenade launchers can't reach Dallas, or even New York has always proven to be a very bad idea. If they want our help, let's do what we can to help. If our nation is under attack, we must defend, but what else can (or should) we do?
I don't think I can say much about the Democrats, as I've been registered as a Republican here for decades. But it does look like Hilary has gotten a couple of million more primary votes that Bernie, and her delegate count seems to reflect that.
But you may be right, and we should invest more of our effort - and money - into keeping our own backyard, and home, safe for democracy.
That might have been a reasonable substitution, Lan, if any of those countries in the Middle East had overrun their democratic neighbors. Unfortunately, the only Middle Eastern country to have overrun its neighbors, and that still occupies neighboring territory is Israel.
There have been some (mostly religious) wars in the Middle East, for example, between Iraq and Iran. Which of those two should we defend with our sons and daughters, and our savings? There are dozens, if not hundreds of countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa that are not at all democratic, and that are involved in their own religious and tribal conflicts. What reason do we have to defend any of those dictatorships?
As the war began, many Americans supported Franco, Hitler, and Mussolini, including Charles Lindberg, Henry Ford, William Randolph Hearst, Andrew Mellon, Joseph Kennedy (JFK's father), Allen Dulles, the DuPonts, Prescott Bush (George H. W. Bush's father), and more.
It was those on the left who strongly opposed Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco, and it was they who created the Abe Lincoln Brigade to go and fight Franco in Spain. FDR had to wait until the bombing of Pearl Harbor before he could convince these folks and many other Republicans that we needed to defend democracy in Europe and the Pacific, and they were still not sure, even then. In fact some of the writings of Henry Ford back then sound almost exactly like what we hear Mr. Trump saying right now.
Certainly if Bernie wins, the TPP and most free trade is gone. He has opposed free trade for his entire career, I think. But there might be some free trade hope for the other two. Trump has said that he opposes free trade treaties, but he is so unpredictable, and and such a loose cannon, that I don't think we could predict what he might do. He might, by chance, end up preserving free trade, if only by mistake. But his other economic policies may very well be so bad that foreign trade may be of little significance.
I suspect that Hilary might end up finding that shutting down free trade agreements is such a difficult proposition that she might very well abandon that effort, especially as it becomes clear that doing that would create an environment that would lead to deepening recessions, as trade, and jobs it creates disappear.
