Trump Tops Clinton in New Polling Average

Donald Trump is beating Hillary Clinton in the latest polling average according to The State’s official calculation. Unlike the RCP average, The State’s average eliminates polls taken significantly prior to the Republican National Convention. As expected, Trump is enjoying a substantial bump after a week of fiery convention speeches.

Conventions often lead to poll bumps, but Trump’s acceptance speech in particular may have changed the course of this election. A CNN viewer poll taken shortly after Trump spoke showed a hugely positive audience response with 75% of all viewers giving favorable marks. Additionally, 73% of CNN viewers said Trump’s policies would lead the country in the right direction. Viewers clearly liked what Trump said despite overwhelmingly negative commentary from CNN contributors. This disconnect between commentators and viewers comes as no surprise – audiences have been rejecting bias in news as of late – both on the right and on the left.

CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and CNBC have all suffered recently as more and more viewers reject their overwhelmingly biased commentary. Fox News isn’t immune either, as audiences earlier this year rejected Fox’s apparent dislike of Donald Trump – eventually forcing the network to embrace the candidate.

Pundits are suggesting the Democratic National Convention next week will reverse these poll results. However, our analysis shows Trump has made significant gains, and we expect Hillary’s convention will be unremarkable and particularly boring. While Trump has embraced the exciting, unpredictable and bold, Hillary has decidedly taken the reserved and pompous approach to her pandering rhetoric.

It is unlikely 2016 audiences will respond well to a convention run by a clearly corrupt DNC – brought to light by the timely Wikileaks email release. Perhaps Pablo will be there, providing us with something interesting to look at. With insiders and career politicians looking to spark some hint of excitement among the general population, the DNC will be lucky if Hillary gains back even one point against Trump.

Less intelligent observers will suggest polling doesn’t matter at all during conventions. That’s like saying pool temperature doesn’t matter when going for a swim. Enjoy your ice cold dip – maybe it’ll help you wake up to reality.

Monday, July 25th Update

Looks like the RCP average caught up to speed as their new figure matches The State’s average exactly with the latest polls added:

Is Hillary Clinton a Serial Murderer?

House of Cards.

A television show about a politician, Frank Underwood, and his wife, Claire Underwood – chronicling their rise through the ranks of political power. Frank’s machinations lead to his ascendancy into the Oval Office. However, Claire isn’t far behind. She connives her way into a VP ticket, with ultimate aspirations of serving as president herself after Frank is washed-up. Both characters are fundamentally flawed, allegedly mentally, verbally and sexually abusive to each other and to outsiders, and decidedly unlikable. Oddly, they are adored by the general public – a public which is generally oblivious to their deceit. With every crime they are exonerated through political influence and force – even rumors (and facts?) of murder come with a cover up. The verdict? Both individuals clearly sold their soul to the devil long ago. Their prize is power and wealth – by the end we realize how frail and corrupt our system is, and we despise Frank, Claire, and everyone like them. When Claire is finally inaugurated, it becomes painfully obvious she is worse than her husband. Corrupt, flawed, angry, spiteful, disdainful of others, complicit in murder, hated, sad, and ultimately – alone.

Real life.

We live it every day. Bill Clinton, and his wife, Hillary Clinton – chronicling their rise through the ranks of political power. Bill’s machinations lead to his ascendancy into the Oval Office. However, Hillary isn’t far behind. She connives her way into a Secretary of State position, with ultimate aspirations of serving as president herself after Bill is washed-up. Both characters are fundamentally flawed, allegedly mentally, verbally and sexually abusive to each other and to outsiders, and decidedly unlikable. Oddly, they are adored by the general public – a public which is generally oblivious to their deceit. With every crime they are exonerated through political influence and force – even rumors (and facts?) of murder come with a cover up. The verdict? Both individuals clearly sold their soul to the devil long ago. Their prize is power and wealth – by the end we realize how frail and corrupt our system is, and we despise Bill, Hillary, and everyone like them. When Hillary is finally inaugurated, it becomes painfully obvious she is worse than her husband. Corrupt, flawed, angry, spiteful, disdainful of others, complicit in murder, hated, sad, and ultimately – alone.

Is Hillary Clinton a murderer? We may never know.

Hillary Clinton Indicted

This is how it would all go down if the judicial system wasn’t corrupt:

In July 2016, shortly before securing the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton is working hard to earn the votes of angry, disenfranchised Bernie Sanders supporters.

Unfortunately for her, she’s indicted before her message has a chance to resonate.

Fox News is the first to report, with all other media outlets picking up the story immediately thereafter. Hillary’s indictment comes at perhaps the worst possible time – representing the Watergate scandal of the 21st century. Liberal Millennials throw up their arms in protest, and demand the DNC strip Hillary of her nomination in favor of Bernie Sanders.

Republicans, initially overjoyed, grow silent and nervous as they ponder the potential scenario of a Sanders vs. Trump election. Initially convinced the country would never elect a Socialist for President, the GOP begins to fear a Sanders resurgence.

Unfortunately for liberal Millennials, and for Bernie Sanders, corruption within the Democrat party knows no bounds. The DNC, through the machinations of the insidious Debbie Wasserman Schultz, claim the indictment is not a disqualifying event, and ultimately throw their full support behind the prison-bound Clinton. Hillary loses the election to Donald Trump, unsurprisingly, and the Democrat party splinters as a result. Gary Johnson wins over a large number of Hillary’s remaining supporters, but not enough to steal the election.

When all is said and done, Donald Trump is our new President, Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigns in shame, and Hillary Clinton is convicted as a felon.

Alas, but corruption runs rampant, and another reality is upon us.

Imagining a President Donald Trump

Update: This is coming true… Donald won. This article was written back in May.

It’s 11:55am EST on Friday, January 20th, 2017, and Donald John Trump is being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

8567813820_32b8aa4810_b

After a bitter rivalry with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump won the 2016 election in a landslide. Many blamed Hillary’s use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State, others blamed her failure in Benghazi, still others blamed the onslaught of bad press she received after her biggest scandals were revealed. Not surprisingly, many former Bernie Sanders voters opted to vote for Trump, primarily out of spite towards the establishment in their own party. Regardless, the election is over, and Donald Trump is now our President.

Donald’s first day in office begins with a “make-friends” tour. A look at his cabinet reveals names like Chris Christie, Dr. Ben Carson, Rudy Giuliani, Carl Icahn and other well-known executives and politicians. He starts by contacting China, Russia, the UK and Mexico. Trump’s plan: rebuild our relationships, and blame the inaccurate press for his poor image around the world. His communications are a resounding success.

Unfortunately for Trump, the stock market collapsed and the U.S. and global economy entered a severe recession shortly before his inauguration. That said, his second task is to calm financial markets. Trump begins by contacting Fed Chair Janet Yellen – a difficult task considering he intends to “fire” her when her term is up. Trump asks Yellen to direct all efforts toward long-term stability of the markets, and to disregard short-term market movements. Yellen listens with trepidation, but ultimately agrees with his assessment. Trump’s orders are: no bailouts, no negative rates and no more QE.

The markets, now significantly lower, crumble even further upon hearing the Fed’s new plans. However, they ultimately rebound when Trump makes a speech on the economy. He starts with a basic, “I told you so,” but ends with an uplifting promise of real economic recovery and growth. His plan is to bring money and jobs back to the United States. He plans to create incentives for companies to repatriate their offshore assets, and proposes long-term sweeping regulatory reforms and tax cuts for businesses of all sizes. He also proposes abolishing the federal minimum wage in order to spur job growth.

In the months following, the markets endure extreme stress, but ultimately settle. Financial institutions of all kinds collapse, and technology companies with no assets and very little revenue see their sky-high valuations evaporate. Gold prices skyrocket, and real estate markets plummet.

Trump sets his sights on the ballooning U.S debt, and prepares a number of proposals for reducing the size of government on a massive scale – eliminating entire departments in the process. Trump assigns a “fraud and abuse czar,” and tasks him with the job of removing fraud and abuse across all federal agencies – starting immediately. Trump’s good friend, Carl Icahn, provides him with sage economic advice.

With their party defeated in the House, Senate and now the Presidency, many Democrats capitulate to Trump’s plan, willing to try something new. Trump is able to execute on sweeping changes, including a full repeal of Obamacare – a not-so-difficult task now that ballooning premiums and health care costs have become mainstream news. His plan to replace it: government assistance for those who are uninsured, but with pro-market policy changes aimed at dramatically lowering health care costs and health insurance premiums for all Americans.

To address the influx of Islamic terrorists and avert another 9/11  terrorist attack, Donald Trump issues a temporary ban on non-citizens from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other “high-risk” countries from entering the U.S. President Trump also begins the location and deportation process for millions of undocumented illegal aliens around the country.

After speaking with President Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexico has agreed to effectively “pay for the wall,” through a more favorable trade deal with the United States. Construction of the border wall with Mexico begins.

Before the end of his first year in office, President Trump asks the American people for their trust, “Stand with me through these difficult times, and you will see America great again – I promise.” The American people decide to take the plunge, and go all-in on President Trump.

Donald Trump Will Be Our Next President

5440002785_f802ecea99_o (1)Update: We were right. This article was originally published back in February!

It’s official, Donald J. Trump will be President of the United States in 2017.

With his commanding win in Nevada tonight, Trump has proven everyone wrong. The pundits said he couldn’t win. The GOP establishment said he would falter. His opponents called him names, and the media tried to set him up at every turn. Even Fox News tried to derail his candidacy at one point or another.

The reality is, Trump is the real candidate for change. The democrats had a candidate for change. His name was Bernie Sanders. Unfortunately for Bernie, the democrats don’t run an honest primary, and Hillary Clinton is being handed the nomination in a process that is anything but democratic.

Now that the democrats have foolishly eliminated their only chance of winning in 2016, they’ve also simultaneously handed the presidency to Donald. J. Trump.

Personally, I couldn’t be happier. This country cannot handle eight more years of incompetent big-government progressive entitlement-first policy. The democrats, and even some republicans have nearly put this country into bankruptcy. Donald Trump is right-it’s time to take our country back.

Trump is the anti-Obama. He’s anti-government. He’s anti-politically correct. He’s anti-media, and yet somehow, the media still loves him. From here on out, Trump is essentially guaranteed victory in 2016. Let’s hope he has only the best intentions in mind, and that he follows through with his promises. End the fed. Cut taxes. Reduce the debt. Save our economy. Stop the class and race warfare. Secure the border. Fix healthcare. Fix education. Let’s win again. Let’s make America great again.
