New Polls – Donald Trump Leads in FLA, Hispanics Nationwide

Its a another day and another batch of fresh polls shows Donald Trump continuing to lead the pack of now 17 GOP candidates for the 2016 race for the White House. You gotta wonder why former Virginia governor, Jim Gilmore, has even bothered to file the paperwork to join the fray? The only way he, or others like Chris Christie would ever win the 2016 presidential nomination is if the rest of the candidates all suddenly died. Weeks ago, the professional political class thought that Trump was finished due to his stand on illegal immigration. That he would be unable to secure enough of the Hispanic vote to make a contest of the election. But in a new survey of registered voters by the Public Policy Poll, PPP, Trump leads all of the GOP contenders amongst Hispanic and Latino voters voters. The Donald scored a 34% favorable rating, with Jeb Bush coming second at 31%, Ted Cruz at 30%, Walker and Rubio at 29% and Fiorina at 25%. By comparison, Hillary Clinton scored 50% and Bernie Sanders 38% in the same poll. In Florida, the new St. Pete Poll has Trump leading home-boys Bush and Rubio. Even Scott Walker edged out Marco!

To Obama from Huckabee – Iran Deal ‘Idiotic’

Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee are in a sand kicking contest over the Iran nuclear deal. Huckabee called it ″idiotic″ and says that Obama is leading Israel to the ″oven doors″. Obama fired back that Huckabee′s Holocaust reference was inappropriate and claims that ″99% of the world″ thinks its a good deal. Certainly is a good deal for Iran! I wonder if that 99% includes all 57 states? Then Obama attacked all of the GOP candidates and the Republican Party in general for opposing his Iran deal. As usual, Obama acted like he was still on the campaign trail. He even bragged that if he ran again, he would win. Is that what this is all about? Does Obama fear about no longer being front page news?

Donald Trump Leads Polls – Takes GOP to the ‘Danger Zone’

A fresh series of surveys by Zogby, CNN and NBC show that Donald Trump leads the polls, even after the big, John McCain dust-up. There seems to be no stopping him. With the first GOP presidential debate just ten days away, many seasoned candidates are facing being shut out as Trump keeps rolling up his score. No wonder considering how weak and feeble many career politicians appear these days. I can′t tell if Lindsey Graham is a ′Cuckservative′ or a ′Cluckservative′? Graham′s knee-jerk ways come off as that of a chicken on its way to a fryer. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has more ′machismo′ than ″Machete″! If he were younger with darker hair, Trump could play Sterling Archer in a live-action version of ″Archer″. Do the latest polls indicate that Donald Trump is taking the Republican Party down a ″Highway To The Danger Zone″?

Donald Trump to John McCain – No Apology!

Does Donald Trump owe John McCain an apology? Does John McCain owe the people of Arizona an apology for calling some ″a bunch of crazies″? Or to the families of missing Vietnam veterans for opposing the release of documents about MIAs? Does John McCain owe an apology to his former shipmates of the USS Forrestal after a misfired rocket knocked a bomb off from his A-4 jet and caused an explosive, fiery accident costing 134 lives and 161 injuries, almost sinking the aircraft carrier? I could go on, but you get the drift. Donald Trump and John McCain have never liked each other, so there is little point in getting sucked into this fight. Naturally, other 2016 candidates will attack Trump as he is sucking the wind from their sails. Even Hillary Clinton is starting to worry about Trump!

Donald Trump Leads Polls, Big Illegal Immigration Speech in Phoenix, Arizona

Two new national polls show Donald Trump in or tied in first place against Jeb Bush for the GOP presidential primaries. His rapid rise to the top of the pack of some 16 contenders is due to Trump′s stand on illegal immigration, which has dominated the news cycle. Today, The Donald will deliver a major speech on the subject of illegal immigration and border security in Phoenix, Arizona. The rally is expected to have thousands in attendance. On Friday, Trump was in Los Angeles, California, where he met and spoke with families who have suffered from crimes by illegal immigrants. Among those Trump met with was the father of Jamiel Shaw, a 17-year old African-American young man who was murdered by two Hispanic gunmen who were apparently illegal immigrants seeking to join a drug gang and ordered to kill someone as part of their initiation.
