National Poll shows Trump beating Hillary Clinton

Trump touts poll giving him edge over Clinton; Cruz issues dire warning
Published May 02, 2016 - FoxNews.com

Donald Trump moved Monday to blunt the narrative that he would lose a general election to Hillary Clinton if he’s the Republican nominee, touting a new poll that showed him narrowly edging the Democratic presidential front-runner in a hypothetical match-up.

The Rasmussen Reports survey buoyed Trump’s campaign as he seeks to add to his hot streak on Tuesday in Indiana’s primary – a contest rival Ted Cruz is fighting hard to win.

Cruz has escalated his rhetoric as he courts Hoosier voters, even saying Sunday that Americans are “praying” for them. He warned against giving “in to evil.”

Asked Monday what he meant by that, the Texas senator said, “We are not a bitter, angry, petty, bigoted people. That is not America.” Spokesman Ron Nehring also invoked religious imagery, telling Fox News a Trump nomination would lead to a “wipeout of biblical proportions” for the GOP in November.

But the Rasmussen poll released Monday – even if it’s a flash-in-the-pan outlier – for the time being helps Trump counter persistent claims by Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and other detractors that he would surely lose to Clinton in November.

The poll showed Trump edging Clinton 41-39 percent in a hypothetical match-up, the first time he’s led their polling since last October. There is an asterisk in that finding: If voters are given the option of staying home, another recent Rasmussen survey showed Clinton and Trump tied.

Still, it was enough for Trump to herald the results on Twitter.

The poll of 1,000 likely voters was conducted April 27-28, and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

In Indiana itself, Trump continues to enjoy a roughly 9-point lead over Cruz, according to the RealClearPolitics average. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has maintained a nearly 7-point average lead over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Though Clinton, too, has been on a winning streak and is far closer to clinching the nomination than Trump, Sanders has – like Cruz – insisted he plans to keep on fighting.
“We intend to fight for every vote and every delegate remaining,” Sanders said at a press conference in Washington, D.C., on Sunday.

On Monday, Cruz similarly declared: "I am in for the distance, as long as we have a viable path to victory. I am competing until the end.”

Asked whether he still has a path to victory even if he loses on Tuesday, Cruz said: “Absolutely.”

Trump, to the contrary, said if he wins Tuesday, “it’s over.”

Fifty-seven delegates are at stake Tuesday in the Indiana GOP primary; 83 are at stake for the Democrats.

The pressure has only mounted on Cruz to do well in Indiana, amid reports that so-called “unbound” delegates in states like North Dakota who had been aligned with Cruz are growing uneasy amid Trump’s winning streak – and could consider flipping to Trump on the first ballot in Cleveland.

Nehring vowed Monday that Trump “will not get a majority on the first ballot.”

And this happens even before the Grand Jury is empaneled.
Hillary's Clinton's senior staff are scheduled to be deposed in the next few days.
Guess who is next?

I wouldn't get too excited about one right leaning poll with a small survey size finally showing Trump with a razor thin lead over Clinton skippy, especially when all the other polls showing the opposite.

Amazing that the outlier (right wing Rasmussen Reports) has Trump up, yet the other 5 "inferior" polls have Clinton up. One of the 5 includes FOX. Guess Rasmussen is just that dam good at polling compared to the others.

Rasmussen reminds me of Karl Rove and his oh so inaccurate predicitions in the previous election.

Plus, if you actually read the Rasmussen poll, those results exclude the "stay at home" results option, which was included as an option in their poll. If you exclude people who are planning on staying at home in a Trump vs Clinton contest, well Trump doesn't lead anymore.

Donald is the consensus GOP nominee
One of the lower-tier candidates has selected his vice president -- Ronald Reagan did that one time -- named his VP during the campaign but didn't help -- wasn't Geraldine Ferraro on the Democratic ticket during a campaign one time too -- must be a last-gasp measure

it's like the playoffs, tournament is in home stretch & now its Donald-Clinton in the finals for all the mah-bles -- best to both

A good reason why Hillary Clinton is falling in the polls:

Clinton confronted by laid-off coal worker at West Virginia campaign stop

Video link at bottom.

Published May 03, 2016 - FoxNews.com

Sanders stumps in Indiana as Clinton focuses on W. Va.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was confronted Monday at a campaign stop in West Virginia by a laid-off coal worker over previous comments she made that “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Clinton was attending a panel discussion with residents and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in Williamson, W. Va. when she was asked a question by Bo Copley, who told her he was a laid off worker in the coal industry.

“I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of, out of jobs, and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend, because those people out there don’t see you as a friend,” Copley said, sometimes breaking into tears, as the chants of the protesters were heard outside.

Clinton however said her comments in March were a “misstatement,” and that she has been talking about helping out coal country “for a very long time.”

“What I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs,” Clinton said Monday. “That’s what I meant to say, and I think that that seems to be supported by the facts. I didn’t mean that we were going to do it, what I said was, that is going to happen unless we take action to try to and help and prevent it.”

Clinton released a $30 billion plan last fall aimed at aiding communities dependent on coal production and she's promised that her husband would focus on revitalizing the region.
Manchin came to Clinton’s defense on Monday.

“If I thought that was in her heart, if I thought she wanted to eliminate one job in West Virginia I wouldn’t be sitting here,” he said. “I think Hillary knows that. She wouldn’t be here if she felt that way. There is no way you could come into this type of a setting and the way that people are hurting so bad unless you want to help them.”

Copley however told Manchin he didn’t believe that his endorsement of Clinton was a good move.

“If I can be candid, I think still supporting her hurts you, it does, because it’s not a good outlook here,” he said.

"I can't take it back, and I certainly can't get people who, for political reasons or personal reasons, very painful reasons, are upset with me," Clinton said. "I want you to know I'm going to do whatever I can to help no matter what happens politically."

She added, "Whether or not West Virginia supports me, I'm going to support you."

Copley said he plans to vote in the Republican primary May 10.

The Republican National Committee responded Monday to the Clinton calling her earlier comments a “misstatement.”

“If Hillary Clinton really stood with coal country she’d be calling on the Obama EPA to stop taking a wrecking ball to their way of life. Given her steadfast support for Obama’s War on Coal, her promise to ‘put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business’ may have been one of the few honest moments she’s had this entire campaign,” said RNC spokesman Michael Short.

The Obama administration has been accused for years of pursuing policies harmful to the coal industry, including new regulations on power plants. As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama once said his goal is a cap-and-trade system that would make it so anybody wanting to build a coal plant would face costs so high it would “bankrupt” them.
Clinton is in the midst of a two-day campaign swing through Appalachia ahead of voting in that region later this month.

Context can be so tricky... for some.

quote:
Clinton did tell a town hall audience in Columbus, Ohio in March that "we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business." But that was part of a longer answer about the need to help blue-collar workers adjust. "We're going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people," Clinton said. "Those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories. Now we've got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels, but I don't want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on."

You didn't even read the poll. Removing the responds for those who said they were staying home (meaning not voting), Trump doesn't even lead in the Rasmussen poll. Rasmussen is spinning their own poll in the headlines.

And how did the "most respective national polling organization in the US" do in the last presidential election? Well, they were close to the bottom, with a heavy Republican bias of course. Numbers don't lie skippy:

The 1:1 polls really don't matter. In the end & what counts is the electoral college. Last week I referenced Larry Sabato's early prediction of 347 to 191 for HC. Just guessing that Rasmussen would probably have that flipped.

It's an opinion piece based on facts. Do you dispute the facts? if so, then provide a link to a what you consider to be the facts. Sorry, Rasmussen is one of the poorest performing polling agencies. That is a fact.

I can't wait to see how disappointed all his dysfunctional supporters will be after he either goes back on his words, or gets blocked by Democrats, much like Obama has. Because, surely everyone now realizes that extremists on either side of aisle are rendered ineffective when their opposition blocks their moves at every turn. All of these disturbed individuals are screwing themselves and they don't even know it! They were the ones who invented the block, yet they can't see that it's about to happen to Trump if he wins. They could have elected one of the many other qualified candidates who didn't have enemies, and didn't hand out ammunition for the opposition like candy. Someone who could have actually sold people and pass conservative policies. Instead, they will Get Trump, who doesn't demonstrate conservatism one bit, who won't be able to accomplish anything, except for maybe 1 pet project and a few executive orders. If you were frustrated by inaction over the past 8 years, get ready for more.

Your bleak assessment is true for a weak ineffectual leader like Pres Obama. If Trump wins, there will be growth and progress thru strong leadership. Continue to belittle his supporters as morons is another mistake the liberal media tried to push. Give it up. You probably believe the border is secure too.
