Trump News, Rumors, Polls and More!

Post by Ken0069 » Mon Jul 25, 2016 8:50 am

Well, since the Republicrap "Machine" seems to have lost in it's attempt to rob Trump of the nomination I thought I'd start another thread to pick up stuff for the General Election in November. so here goes

Donald Trump bounces into the lead
By Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director

http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/25/politics/ ... index.html
(CNN)The bounce is back.

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

There hasn't been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.

The new findings mark Trump's best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015. Trump's new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump's convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.

The poll also reflects a sharpening of the education divide among whites that has been prevalent throughout the campaign. Among white voters with college degrees, Clinton actually gained ground compared with pre-convention results, going from an even 40% to 40% split to a 44% to 39% edge over Trump. That while Trump expanded his lead with white voters who do not hold a college degree from a 51% to 31% lead before the convention to a 62% to 23% lead now.

Beyond boosting his overall support, Trump's favorability rating is also on the rise (46% of registered voters say they have a positive view, up from 39% pre-convention), while his advantage over Clinton on handling top issues climbs. He now holds double-digit margins over Clinton as more trusted on the economy and terrorism. Trump also cut into Clinton's edge on managing foreign policy (50% said they trusted her more, down from 57% pre-convention).
The convention also helped Trump make strides in his personal image. A majority (52%) now say Trump is running for president for the good of the country rather than personal gain, just 44% say the same about Clinton. He's increased the share who call him honest and trustworthy (from 38% to 43%), and who would be proud to have him as president (from 32% to 39%). And nearly half now say he's in touch with the problems ordinary Americans face in their daily lives (46% say so, 37% did before the convention).
Despite Democratic criticism of the Republican convention's message as divisive, the percentage who say Trump will unite the country rather than divide it has increased to 42%, compared with 34% pre-convention.

Clinton's ratings on these same measures took a hit, though in most cases her drop-off was not quite as large as Trump's gain. Perhaps most troubling for the Clinton supporters gathering in Philadelphia this week: 68% now say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, her worst rating on that measure in CNN/ORC polling.
Those positives for Trump come despite some sharply negative reviews for the convention itself. Almost 6 in 10 (58%) said the Republican convention spent too much time attacking Democrats, and 18% called Trump's speech "terrible," the highest by far since CNN started began the question in 1996. Still, 40% called the speech excellent or good and about half of voters (45%) said Trump's speech reflected the way they feel about things in the U.S. today; 48% said it did not reflect their views.

The public rendered a split decision on whether the convention made them more or less likely to back Trump, 42% said more likely while 44% said less so, but the shift in voter preferences suggests the "more likely" side carried more weight. And most came away feeling ready to decide about Trump's fitness for the job: 78% say they already know enough to know whether he'd be a good president. Another 20% think they need more information.
Two prominent convention speakers saw their stock rise post-convention as well. Favorability ratings for Trump's wife, Melania, climbed from 27% pre-convention to 43% post-convention, despite news that her Monday night speech contained passages lifted from Michelle Obama's 2008 Democratic convention speech. Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, whose Wednesday speaking slot was largely overshadowed following Ted Cruz's defiant stand on the convention stage, also bolstered the electorate's impression of him, landing at a 39% favorable rating overall, up from 26% pre-convention.

Cruz's move, however, appears to have backfired. While 60% of Republican voters had a positive impression of the former presidential candidate before the convention, just 33% have one now.
The Trump campaign has claimed the visceral negative reaction to Cruz reflected the unity the party feels behind Trump himself. But the poll suggests a large share of Republican voters still need to be won over. The share of Republicans who say their party is "united now" climbed from 16% pre-convention to 24% post-convention, but about half (49%) say it's not united now, but will be by November, and there are still about a quarter who say the party won't unite at all. Further, 45% continue to say they'd prefer someone other than Trump as the nominee.
The CNN/ORC Poll was conducted by telephone July 22-24 among a random national sample of 1,001 adults. Results for the sample of 882 registered voters have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Trump is now ahead by .2% in the polls. I would have expected a larger post convention jump having him 3-4 points higher.

The RCP average is still catching up a bit I think as there are still 3 polls in the average that use data from before the convention and Rassusen which is generally 3-5pts skewed GOP is from the start of the convention so he should be still going up as new polling comes in. This will be a very fluid 2 weeks in polling numbers then it should settle down to something meaningful/predictive..... but who knows this year.

Edit: here's an article saying about the same

It's going to be very interesting to see if the Wiki leaks DNC email dump has any long term effects. Right now the Bernie supporters are not too happy with the establishment Democrats and Hillary bringing on Wasserman Schultz to her campaign is a big FU to them.

Poll: 77 Percent Of Voters Agree With Trump’s Energy Position

Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/22/poll- ... z4FarakENL
The majority of Americans agree with Republican nominee Donald Trump’s pro-energy position, according to a recent poll conducted by the American Petroleum Institute (API).

“We are going to lift the restrictions on the production of American energy. This will produce more than 20 trillion dollars in job creating economic activity over the next four decades,” Trump said Thursday night when accepting the Republican nomination for president. “My opponent on the other hand wants to put the great miners and the great steelworkers of our country, out of work and out of business. That will never happen with Donald J. Trump as president. Our steel workers and our miners are going back to work again.”

The poll found 77 percent of voters want to see America increase production of oil and gas resources located in the U.S, including 94 percent of Republicans, 73 percent of independents, and 64 percent of Democrats.

The poll also found 69 percent of voters would support a political candidate who promised to increase production of American oil and natural gas, gaining approval from 86 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of independents, and 57 percent of Democrats. Roughly 71 percent of voters would oppose legislation that could potentially raise energy costs on the American consumer.

July 28, 2016 -
Donald J. Trump Statement on America’s Future
Donald J. Trump wrote:At Hillary Clinton’s convention this week, Democrats have been speaking about a world that doesn’t exist. A world where America has full employment, where there’s no such thing as radical Islamic terrorism, where the border is totally secured, and where thousands of innocent Americans have not suffered from rising crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago.

In the Democrats’ fantasy world, there is no problem with Hillary Clinton maintaining an illegal, exposed server full of classified information that could have been hacked by any foreign enemy, and in which Hillary Clinton risked prison time to delete 33,000 emails that were simply about yoga and wedding planning. In this world, there is no Hillary Clinton disaster in Syria, Libya and Egypt, ISIS doesn’t merit a mention, Iran isn’t on the path to nukes, convention stages don’t need American flags, and our great men and women of law enforcement, our police, do not need to be honored.

I propose a different vision for America, one where we can break up Washington’s rigged system, and empower all Americans to achieve their dreams. In our vision, we will put America First.

If we deliver this change, the future is limitless and we will Make America Great Again for everyone.

Yes, and the Dems had more for the rest of the convention giving them a win in total views. This historically means nothing, people turn on the TV to be entertained.....and you can always count on Rump to say stupid sh*t ;)

Interesting Video – Bernie Supporters Now For Trump…
Posted on July 30, 2016 by sundance
Full article HERE

Interesting video highlighting the logical choice for the intellectual Bernie Sanders voter:

Trump and Sanders agree on the need for common sense election financing reform.
Trump and Sanders agree on Wall Street reform needed to support Main Street, and the middle class.
Trump personally has put the reinstatement of the Glass-Stegall Act into his platform.
Trump and Sanders both stand against the TPP trade deal.
Trump and Sanders both ‘outsiders’, willing to change the rigged system:

Bernie supporter video HERE

Video Provided by: Campus Reform, a project of the Leadership Institute, is America’s leading site for college news. As a watchdog to the nation’s higher education system, Campus Reform exposes bias and abuse on the nation’s college campuses.

Just more evidence – It’s not going to be close folks. This election will be an epic landslide.

With all the hoop-la over the latest Trump controversy I thought it would be important to bring up something from the not too distant past that the lamestream media seems to forget!

Have We Forgotten That Hillary Pretty Much Called A Gold Star Mother A Liar?
