The Angry Baby Party Is For Real

From CNN:
CNN/ORC Poll: Donald Trump now competitive in general election

Washington (CNN)Since announcing his campaign in late June, Donald Trump has quickly leapt to the top of the Republican field, leading recent polls nationally, in Iowa and in New Hampshire. And now, for the first time in CNN/ORC polling, his gains among the Republican Party have boosted him enough to be competitive in the general election.

The poll finds Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by just 6 points, a dramatic tightening since July. Trump is the one of three Republican candidates who have been matched against Clinton multiple times in CNN/ORC polling to significantly whittle the gap between himself and the Democratic frontrunner. He trailed Clinton by 16 points in a July poll, and narrowed that gap by boosting his standing among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (from 67% support in July to 79% now), men (from 46% in July to 53% now) and white voters (from 50% to 55%).
No one wants to hear from the people who saw this coming years ago.

No one.

No better representative than the weak and evasive denials by the bloated Jabba the Rush that he is promoting The Donald. Rush has spent his entire radio career being the Swamp Monster of the Sick rwight-wing Id and actively cultivating along with the rest of the GOP the politics of hatred, violence and resentment. Trump is simply the cynical creature of a deeply cynical amoral political movement.

I'm not an expert, but it looked to me that the poll over sampled Republican/leaner by a hefty margin. Where Gallup puts nation as 41% GOP, 48% Dem. If I recall the CNN poll had 448 GOP and 285 Dem respondents.

Like all polls, it doesn't divide people by their electoral votes. Democrats start out at a significant advantage, but if Blacks don't turn out in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, there is a statistical possibility we could lose a general election.

Love that angry baby 'shop.

Happy Anniversary, Darlin. xoxo

Yeah the CNN poll had 466 Republicans and 358 Democrats. That is definitely too weighted to the Republican side if you believe billybam's 41/48 percent split off registered voters.
