Passion for Politics: Mistress of Deception Running Away from Democrats

passion for politics

Judge Andrew Napolitano (Fox News Consultant) labeled Hillary Clinton a master of deceit as more emails surfaced into the public arena from the email/server scandal.

Clinton, however, is now trouncing her chief opponent, socialist Bernie Sanders, by a two to one margin. Beyond the Democratic primary is where her problems start. A recent Huffington Post poll reflects her unfavorable percentage of 49.1 going into the general election.

On the Republican side, Dr. Ben Carson remains in the national lead over Donald Trump (29 to 23 percent) in the most recent NBC/WSJ poll. Rubio comes in at 11 percent, Cruz 10 percent, and Bush 8 percent. Jeb has launched a new “Fix it Campaign” in another attempt to get his candidacy out of the ditch.

However, when you examine the individual nine state polls, Trump leads Carson in seven including Iowa. Carson is ahead in Texas and Oklahoma. Trump’s widest margin ironically is in the state of Florida where he is lapping the field with a 20 point lead over second place Carson. This spells major problems for the dynamic duo of the Sunshine State.

Continuing with polls, an online Newsmax Poll has Trump at 17 percent, Cruz at 14 percent, Carson at 13 percent, Bush at 5 percent and Rubio at 2 percent.

Many Trump supporters share the belief that the country has lost its way and “the Donald” talks like a regular guy in his approach to navigate the nation and get it back on track. Trump just unveiled his new book Crippled America in Trump Tower while blasting Rubio and Carson.

With 90 days to go to Iowa, a full court press is in play for the ten plus Republicans still courting the Midwesterners. With so many candidates dividing up the vote, anything in the 20 percentile range may be enough to claim the Hawkeye prize.

Seventy percent of Iowans still remain undecided after months of campaigning. Traditionally three candidates come out of Iowa with a legitimate chance to win the nomination.
