Donald Trump might say Hillary got schlonged by Sanders. One thing is for sure, Hillary is persona non grata in West Virginia. This is the direct result of her support for the ignorant Obama administration’s green policies, one of which is closing coal mines. West Virginia’s primary product is coal.
How dumb can you get? Hillary’s position was roughly this: “Don’t worry about your jobs disappearing. We will implement government programs to retrain you to hold lower paying jobs.” Democrats don’t give working people credit to know when they are getting screwed. These people know, and they also know what to do about the situation. Bye-bye Hillary.
Donald Trump really romped through the West Virginia primary. Fox News called the election for Trump with only a few percent of the precincts reporting. The Trump turnout was that massive.
From what the pundits are saying about the last round of Quinnipiac polls Trump is dead even when juxtaposed against Hillary in the general election in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. With his performance getting better as he goes along, this could mean problems for Clinton’s campaign.
There aren’t many states left to vote in the primary process for either party. It is obvious that Trump and Clinton will be their party’s candidates. What remains to be seen is how socialist Bernie Sanders will affect the Democrat convention and election process. His effect cannot be good.
Folks, it is getting to be popcorn time. Sit back, watch the cable news, and enjoy all the foibles and mistakes in the upcoming campaign. Just remember that Hillary Clinton is a lying witch, and Donald Trump will wear the Superman cape.
Here is an interview with Superman you will enjoy.
Communist and wannabe Democrat Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders got some kids in New Hampshire excited and unleashed a whooping on Hillary Clinton for the ages. Bernie Sanders got 60.4% of the Democrat vote while Hillary stumbled across the finish line with only 38%. If you remember the Iowa caucuses from last week, Hillary was declared a winner based on a coin flip. Hillary is on a downward slide, and has no one to blame but herself. She is not a likeable person, and the world is getting to know her.
In the Republican primary Donald Trump trounced the entire field and collected 35.3% of the Republican vote, with John Kasich garnering 15.8 %. Kasich vaulted to the number two slot in New Hampshire after being ninth in Iowa just last week. Bush, Cruz, and Rubio were in a vitual tie for third place with about eleven percent, each. Christie, who successfully attacked Rubio in the last debate, has since suspended his run, as has Carly Fiorina.
Here’s the interesting thing. With Hillary Clinton in a downward slide is it possible that we can see a Trump/Sanders election? The match in itself would be classic in that it would pit a died-in-the-wool communist against one of the richest capitalists in the nation. Current national polls reveal that Sanders would probably beat Trump, but the election season is young.
So far, Donald Trump’s style on the election trail is not as I would like to see from a front runner. His campaign is similar to Barack Obama’s in that there’s lots of talk about how good things will be, but no substance is offered on how all that is going to happen. Donald will have to improve his delivery to beat the pseudo-intellect that is Bernie Sanders.
In the fray Jeb Bush has risen to double digits in votes. Does this mean that Bush’s campaign is no longer moribund, but has a chance at a competitive life? Some think so, but I think it would be very hard for Bush to knock off Rubio, Cruz, and Kasich before getting into the top levels of the race. I have always liked Jeb, and it looks like he is getting some much needed fire in his belly. It is too little, too late. Good luck, Jeb.
It is all coming down to the southern states, now.
South Carolina is huge for Hillary Clinton. Her campaign believes she will get most of the black vote in that state. In a state with a total population of around 4.6 million people, 1.3 million of them are black. The Democrats always make race a big part of their politics in South Carolina. Clinton is counting on winning South Carolina with the help of black people who reportedly love the Clintons.
Interestingly, the highest ranked black politician in the state is US Senator Tim Scott, staunch free-market Republican. The entire state of South Carolina, especially the black population, should be very proud of this very smart and articulate man representing them in the US Senate. The Republican Party has been able to attract intelligent, articulate, and competent racial minority candidates, much more so than the Democrats.
With another week there will be another primary. Stay tuned and see how all this plays out. With football having run its course, and baseball not starting up for several months, politics is the biggest entertainment on TV.
This kind of stuff can only happen in the movies, or with Donald Trump. Reality TV shows be damned, the real thing is much more entertaining.
There were some irregularities going on at the Iowa Republican caucuses. Well, the Democrat caucuses was a little irregular, too. The whole exercise is a commentary on American politics and how we elect our leaders.
Sometime during the evening of the Iowa caucuses a CNN reporter tweeted that Ben Carson would be headed home to Florida to get a fresh set of clothes before going on to New Hampshire. I remember this coming over cable news that evening. Apparently, the Ted Cruz campaign read the same tweet and took advantage of an easy misinterpretation of the context.
The Cruz people began telling Iowans that Ben Carson was withdrawing from the campaign and going back to Florida that night. This had the effect of many evangelic Carson supporters throwing their support to Cruz, another evangelical favorite. The number of votes that resulted in Cruz’s column is not known, but the total result of votes were enough put Cruz in first place in the Republican caucuses.
Enter Ben Carson. Ben is extremely angry at what happened, and is convinced (along with the rest of us) that Cruz’s staff twisted the truth, knowing full-well what they were doing. I have never seen Dr Carson as animated as he was last night on TV. If he could get his hackles up that much, he would be polling better, and would not have the legend of being from Sleepy Hollow.
Donald Trump, not known for missing an opportunity to dominate the news cycle, has glommed onto this incident to demand a re-run of the whole Iowa Republican caucus. His insistence is that without Cruz’s shenanigans, Trump would have won the Iowa Republican caucuses outright, just as the polls predicted.
I believe Trump is right. He was robbed!
Bernie Sanders got robbed, too. This part of the story is classic Clinton. If there is anything famous about the Clinton’s it is their ability to lie, cheat, steal, smear their opponents, or possibly erase them. Hillary has always been a vindictive person, a well known character trait of the former Secretary of State and First Lady.
The voting in the Iowa Democrat caucuses was VERY close, forcing the determination of the winner into the next afternoon. The differences in the totals were oscillating in values much less than one percent, and the final total was that Clinton won by a scant 0.3%. If this were a government mandated election, there would be a recount. Instead, the rules were enforced by a Clinton weighted group of administrators.
The Democrats discovered that there were nine precincts that had not reported, and the chase was on to get to the precinct captains to get the totals in. People were rousted out of bed, and numbers were produced, whether or not they were correct. The fun comes in when we learn that there were six precincts where the precinct captains reported ties.
Now, it may not have been unusual for six precincts out of several hundred to have ended in tie absolute ties. The truth of the matter is that those precincts did not send in their results before people started leaving their caucuses, thereby making it impossible to get accurate counts. This is like being caught relieving yourself on Main Street. It is embarrassing and you will find any way out of your predicament.
The Democrat resolution was to flip coins to determine the winner. FLIPPING COINS! Why go to the trouble of having elections if in the end you are going to determine the outcome by flipping a coin? This is insanity.
Is it surprising to learn that Hillary Clinton was the winner in six out of six coin flips? How does that happen? Only a Clinton would see nothing wrong with this process. Statistically, it is possible for this to happen, although the probabilities get remote.
What’s the result? Bernie got robbed! The fool actually agreed with the outcome.
Here’s the situation. Politics in the United States of America is alive and well. They was robbed!
