More good polls for Trump!

New NBC News Survey/Monkey weekly tracking poll released on Tuesday shows that Hillary’s lead over Trump narrowed to 3 points. Yet another poll showing that the race has tightened and Hillary no longer has a massive lead over Trump.

The WBUR New Hampshire poll released today has Clinton with a 2 point lead over Trump. Obama beat Mitt Romney in New Hampshire by more than 5 points, so Trump is outperforming Mitt.

All polls continue to show that Bernie has a much bigger lead over Trump than Clinton, but luckily for Trump, the Democratic establishment is too stupid to nominate their best candidate.

  1. Trump is down by 3 in the HuffPo aggregator. How long until he is ahead of Hillary? I think he’ll pull ahead after the convention, however briefly.

    • How long until he is ahead of Hillary? I think he’ll pull ahead after the convention, however briefly.

      Trump should off on using the heavy artillery (Epstein, Benghazi, email espionage, etc) until mid July when it will be too late for the Democrats to switch candidates. If he opens up too large a lead they may try to toss her in favor of Biden (Sanders is the Democrat’s Trump in the sense he’s too independent for them to trust with power) .

      • I think it’s too late to replace Hillary. Also, one of the mistakes Trump’s opponents made was waiting too long to go after him. He’s not making that mistake with Hillary. He’s going to bomb her before she can get her planes in the air. That will help him attract the independents, moderate Democrat and pissed off Sanders’ supporters before she gets a chance to woo them.

      • I think it’s too late to replace Hillary.

        Admittedly the odds are small of a ‘Toricelli’ maneuver, but it’s conceivable given how vulnerable she is on multiple policy points and scandals. Suppose he hammers her all June and opens up a 10 pt national lead. At that point there might be a panic at the convention where she’s replaced with Biden. If he’s ahead by 5 points she could spin it as Bernie voters not returning to home base. But if she has to explain a double digit hole to dig out of, previous calculations might drastically change.

        Also, one of the mistakes Trump’s opponents made was waiting too long to go after him. He’s not making that mistake with Hillary.

        This is the downside; if he eases up on her she might be able to recover for the rest of the campaign.

        On balance I’d say it’s safer to hold off until July because she’ll have the same vulnerabilities then as she will in June, but it’s admittedly a calculated risk either way.

      • “I think it’s too late to replace Hillary.”

        Let’s hope so. She’s not only the weaker candidate against Trump, she’s tearing the Democratic Party apart right now. Lion so far hasn’t paid much attention to the fratricidal warfare among the Dems. I have, and it’s quite intense. They are preparing massive demos for Philly:

        What I find scary about them is when they lose (to Hillary) they will turn their rage on Trump. I see white riots. There haven’t been white riots since before WWII.

    • He was from a wealthy, well connected family. He went to an expensive prep school. In spite of all that, he could only get into Fordham – a mediocre Catholic school that was not even seen as a backup school by those at my parochial school around the same time.

      So, no. Little brain power. Probably around 1000 SATs. His later transfer to Penn proves nothing. Does anyone doubt that he paid others to write his papers?

      • Are you the same age as Trump? If you’re younger, it’s possible that Fordham was a better school when he went there. G.Gordon Liddy (probably a pretty bright guy, if a bit odd) was always proud of being a Fordham grad.

      • All of the local NYC schools were a lot better back in Trump’s day because smart Jews went there. But then Ivy League schools stopped discriminating against Jews, and Jews stopped being afraid to go away to college.

      • Today’s non-Caucasians at the universities demonstrate very little capacity for intellectual grooming. They view them no differently from trade schools, that are purely vocational based, with the sole intention of getting a job, after graduation.

        Whites on the other hand, go to college as a hedonistic ritual, frittering their lives away, with hopes of landing a value transference job post graduation. There’s always law school for those who don’t get one.

        And we live in a post scarcity world.

  6. Trump is a natural psychologist. He understands preference cascades and social proof and he’s always tweeting stuff like this below. Very important in the SWPL world to make people think that somebody else is voting for Trump, because nobody in the media is, that’s for sure. The dig at “Crooked Hillary” is also perfectly executed.

        What they dont realize is that the communities that are gaining- Central American, Arabs and Asians are more conservative.

      • Or just read my comments about the current crop of college kids, with an over-representation of inner racial minorities, and upper class whites, who have completely destroyed the intellectual tradition that once defined American higher education. They’re gearing up for the new serf-master class that one finds in Manhattan of the 21st century. Racial minorities working in trades, and upper class whites working in value transference. Proles are no longer of any use. They’ll just die off, commit suicide or leave Meriprolestan, as it becomes the new Meriserflandia.

  7. He got a bump for being the presumptive nominee. Hillary will get one when she is. I still think making a big deal out of legal immigration is the only way to inoculated himself against accusations of bigotry and to bring in those independent populists.

  8. The pretty cover of Hillary can fool many into buying her book, which may explain her slight lead at this time by the polls. It will take a while to judge the contents correctly, given how so much attention has been devoted so far on the dust that covers the Trump book. I believe the choice will become clear six months from now. My concerns are that the other side may become so desperate that they would use voter fraud to steal the election, as well as other lies and deception before then. I hope that all sorts of security measures will be put into place to prevent fraud from happening come November.

      No would. They will. Plenty of lies and deceptions as well. And “security measures?” Good luck with that.

      • I am afraid you are correct, Vincent. There is nothing the liberals would not do now, after what their King has just recently ordered in a cavalier manner: All public schools must make their girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms accessible to grown men as long as they say the magic word “transgender”, or else the school will receive no federal funding. What will stop them from committing voter fraud now? Morals? Honor? Fair play? The Law? (The King can override a law, apparently.)

        I hope the states are replacing those weak Diebold voting machines (as seen in “Hacking Democracy” on youtube) with something more secure. At the very least, paper ballots should always be used and kept for checking against the computer results.

  9. 5 days after Lion advises Trump to pivot to the left on abortion Trump decides that even Scalia is too liberal for him and issues a list of Supreme Court candidates where judges who are former Thomas clerks (Thomas is the natural law guy who thinks the Constitution is based on natural law and hence there is a federal power to outlaw abortion) outnumber judges who are Scalia clerks (Scalia believes abortion is a state issue and is not in the federal constitution) three to one. Wheels within wheels, as Bertie Wooster used to say.

  12. Some thoughts:

    1. People expecting a poll bump for hilary are discoubting the fact the media already treats her as the nominee. Hence no bump.

    2. The riot in nevada shows many bernie supporters will sit out the election or vote green in protest. The resultany black/hispanic v white optics of the election will ensure a landslide for trump.

    3. Democrats would rather nominate a moderate republican like hagel or garland than sanders as they are also controlled by donors. Sanders presents a greater threat to the establishment than trump. Which is saying somehing!!

    4. I would recommend trump plough into the paedophilia and witness intimidation stuff inmediately. The financial scandals are boring. The paedophilia is a killshot which will dominate a months worth of newscycles. It also has the added beauty of making her guilty just by imagery association. You can see hilary is very afraid of triggering the nuclear bomb. Trump has to tease that he might do it and psychologically drain her and then release.

    5. Killing clinton early will free him from going around with a begging bowl to the usual high net worth plutocrats and forcing him to the ‘centre’ to destroy social security.

    6. Hilary looks physically drained. Expect campaign workers and people inside her campaign to leak info and sabotage her campaign as she gets irratable at them. Obama will ramp up his fbi investigation too.

    7. Biden would beat trump. I personally like biden. Admittedly hilarys stated policies are better than trumps so a non psychopath with her policies would be good bar the immigration amnesty which is reprehensible.

      Can you name some of these “better” policies? Just curious. Not that anything matters more than immigration and trade, which are 14 of the top ten most important things facing America right now.

      • These are the top 14 most pressing things facing America right now:

        1) Non-assimilable racial minorities, set to surpass the White demographic in numbers.

        2) Prole drifting is here to stay, leading to Prole extinction, because of 1).

        3) A serf-master relationship that one finds in Latin American countries, a White elite minority with NAM serfs.

        4) The same, rinse and repeat…
