Stunning new poll shows Donald Trump in surprisingly good position against Hillary Clinton
A new poll out Wednesday found that real-estate mogul Donald Trump is only 6 points behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a theoretical general-election matchup.
According to the CNN/ORC survey, the Democratic front-runner leads Trump just 51% to 45% among registered voters.
If the poll is accurate, it represents a sharp improvement for Trump. Though Trump has surged to the front of the GOP field, polls have previously found him lagging in general-election matchups.
A CNN/ORC survey in June, for example, found that Clinton would crush Trump 59% to 34% — by 25 points — in the hypothetical matchup. And while his 16-point deficit in July was a notable improvement, it still would represent a wide margin of defeat:
It's not clear what is specifically driving Trump's recent improvement against Clinton, though she has been battered by a slew of negative headlines in recent months, especially regarding her email use at the State Department. Trump, apparently buoyed by various controversies, has also had a near monopoly of presidential media coverage.
But the CNN poll does show where Trump is drawing much of his support: white men. The survey found that Trump led Clinton among white voters by 55% to 41%, and among men by 53% to 42%. In contrast, Clinton was ahead among women by 60% to 37% while dominating among nonwhite voters by 71% to 24%.
Trump also did a bit better among voters who didn't go to college (he led 48% to 47%) and those who make $50,000 or more (he trailed 49% to 48%).
The other GOP presidential candidates didn't fare much better than Trump against Clinton, either. The poll found that Clinton led former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida by 9 points and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin by 6 points, similar to her margin against Trump.
Of course, the 2016 general election is still a long way out; the first primary voters don't even start to weigh in until February. A Clinton campaign spokesman, Jesse Ferguson, responded to the CNN poll by pointing out this fact:

MARK CUBAN: I want to be a Republican, but the party has one big problem
In a post on his Cyber Dust social-media app, the outspoken billionaire investor wrote that he would prefer to join the GOP but had an issue with the party's push for conformity.
"I would prefer to be a Republican," Cuban wrote in the post, which was flagged by The Dallas Morning News. "I want smaller government. I want smarter government. Just like most Republicans. Put aside that I disagree with Republicans on most social issues. The Republicans have a much bigger problem that will crush them in every presidential election until this changes."
Cuban lamented that those who disagree with the "consensus" were called fake Republicans.
"The Republican Party requires that all their presidential candidates conform to consensus," he said. "If you don't agree with every platform of the party, not only are you called a RINO, a 'Republican in Name Only.' You are considered unelectable in primaries and become a source of scorn on Fox News. That's a problem."
The "Shark Tank" star's desire to avoid party orthodoxy could be related to his recent praise for real-estate mogul Donald Trump, whom he hailed as "the best thing to happen" to politics in a long time. Indeed, Cuban even told Business Insider he would consider being Trump's vice president if asked, though he said he would probably decline the hypothetical offer.
In his Tuesday Cyber Dust post, Cuban also reflected on the meaning of leadership:
Leaders don't conform to the consensus. They create consensus to their vision and goals.
Leaders don't change their positions mid debate. They welcome scorn from the masses because it creates the opportunity for dialogue.
Leaders don't look backwards to condemn what has already been done, they look forward to create a better future.
Leaders are not dogmatic. They are principled and know that change is never easy, but when it's necessary, they must lead.
The Republican Party does everything possible to discourage leadership.
They want dogma.
They want conformity.
They want to conserve their romanticized past.
That's a shame. I wish they wanted to conserve the best of what America is today and find a leader that can take us to new places that make our future better.
I realize that's not the way politics work in this day and age. And that just proves the point.
"And btw, I know a lot of the same can be said about the Democrats, but I don't want to be a Democrat," he concluded. "Until things change, I'll sit in the middle and think for myself. Unlike the Republicans."

It is a smelly troll,....it lives to incite human beings, it has no soul, it has no moral compass, it merely exists to comment on the head troll's blog. Ever wonder why the head troll doesn't comment???? I don't, because it simply wants to have the most posts, views, and trolls. The smelly troll believes humans care about the drivel it writes....... we don't. Don't feed the trolls.

Reddog, just consider the source. He and his clandestine troupe. I wouldn't take anything seriously from him or the back door bell. If you let someone like him get under your skin, you make yourself out to be NO better than them...!
First is you reddog. You are so caught up in your lies until you can't remember what you have said. Those that know me on the Lp knows that I am a veteran, a retired teacher, a no nonsense person, and can handle myself. You on the otherhand, has mental issues that you are not addressing. You make statements that you can't possibly back-up and expect someone to agree with your dumb ass. It is not my fault you didn't get a good education so quit being jealous of mine. Also FOOL SAD means not happy. Your preverted meaning is yours and jarasan alone. You two are the perverted ones. All one has to do is view past posts. Both of you are immature males that have the mind of a teenager going through puberty.
Now for you jarasan. You are a cry-baby and a snitch punk-bitch. You have the audacity to try and tell Truesee how to run her blog, while you have one no one pays attention to. Just look at your last two illogical posts. You talk about Truesee, yet you copy and paste her. What a hypocrite and a dummy.
Finally, maddog. You're just a frustrated bigot that likes to bitch and have hissy fits when things don't go your punk-ass way. You are the leader of lies and jealousy. You are closed-minded and does not posess higher order thinking. You were use to being a bully on the LP until you came in contact with me. Everything that you and your imps have tried on me, FAILED. WHY? You met a real man that is not afraid of anyone that's behind a computer sceen or any place else. I can Talk the Talk, and Walk the Walk.

Normally I would ignore you Silly, but since you referred to me on Jarasan’s very illogical blog by referring to me as Antagonists Trolls: Part 7... I said, what the hey, let me respond since you Antagonist Trolls can’t seem to get me out of your head. Silly in a sad attempt to annoy me you made an AZZ out of yourself once again. Let me give you a little background about Hank, you know the one you referred to as a dummy.
Prior to taking his seat in Congress in 2006, Rep. Johnson practiced criminal defense law in Georgia for twenty-seven (27) years. He served twelve (12) years as a magistrate judge, and five (5) years as a county commissioner. Rep. Johnson is married to Attorney Mereda Davis Johnson and has two adult children. BTW, his wife has been elected county commissioner.
Let’s see you called Hank a dummy, right. Let’s see he was a criminal defense attorney for 27 years; 12 years as a magistrate judge; 5 years as a county commissioner, and is presently serving as congressman for the fourth district of Georgia. Now what have you done to compare to this dummy? I thought so! IDIOT.

Things I trust more than Hillary 7/19 statements is Coin Toss’s sarcasm of a Black
Coin Toss's Blogshows the racist side of certain LP members as they make fun of Blacks in general. Out of 19 comments 7 of them are anti-Black. Well Coin Toss, you racist , everyone knows how you and your friends feel about Blacks. Your writing about Hillary was just a guise to show your TRUE FEELINGGS. Bigots/Bigets that play together, stay together. SAD,SAD,SAD … I was right about you bigots from the beginning.

tiparker119's Blog: This Video Will Give You Chills...!! Here you will see the same bigots saying Amen to an Uncle Tom, not because they like him, but because he is saying what their racist ears want to hear about the POTUS who happens to be Black. They praise this veteran and is silent about what Trump said about McCain. THEIR HATE IS DEEP! ONLY GOD IS ABLE TO REMOVE THAT KIND OF HATE. This is generational HATE, the worst kind. It’s in their DNA to hate people of color, or people that disagree with their agenda…be it republican or Democrat. Their hate will cause them to suffer many pitfalls and disappointments in life.

July 25, 2015, 5:07 pmWhat New Hampshire Repubs have to say about DT
CENTER HARBOR, N.H. – Greg Anthes laughed when he saw the “Trump” sticker on the back window of the Ford Escape with Alabama plates in the parking lot of the Waukewan Golf Club.
Anthes, a selectman from New Durham, was on his way in to a town hall meeting with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who became the 16th Republican to announce his candidacy for president this week, and was in the Granite State for his first trip as a candidate.
Anthes’ reaction to seeing the sticker for Donald Trump, the real estage mogul and reality TV personality whose own presidential candidacy is dominating the news these days, suggested that Anthes was dismissive of Trump.
But Anthes’ reaction when asked about Trump revealed the complexity beneath the surface of Trump’s current popularity. Even people who laugh at him, like Anthes, don’t dismiss him.
“I think it’s a good thing,” Anthes said of Trump’s candidacy. “I think he’s brought forth something that needs to be discussed. So I don’t have a problem with Trump at all, other than at some times he’s a little blunt. But some business people are that way and they’re not used to being polished.”
Anthes said that Trump’s rise in the polls is largely due to his comments about illegal immigration. Of all the things Trump has said, the comment that drew the most attention was his remark in mid-June that among those who come from Mexico to the U.S., some are “rapists.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said .
Anthes said he did not think Trump’s comments were hostile toward Latinos.
“I don’t think he’s against minorities. I truly don’t believe that in his heart. I just think he says things and it just comes out, it’s a little harsh sometimes,” Anthes
Anthes implied that Trump is stirring up a conversation now, but that he will likely not sustain his current popularity. “We were big [Rudy] Giuliani fans and he was a big front leader [in 2008] and then disappeared. So a lot of the front leaders now are not going to be around in two or three months,” Anthes said.
Others at Kasich events here and in Portsmouth earlier on Wednesday also offered praise for Trump.
“He’s saying things that need to be said that everyone else is afraid to say,” said Marie Lemieux, of Portsmouth. She was particularly upset about immigration as well. “We get some people who have been deported multiple times and they shouldn’t be in the country,” she said.
And Dave Owens, in Portsmouth, said he found Trump’s brash style “refreshing.”
“He’s willing to say what he thinks. He’s not worried about being politically correct. He’s not worried about offending the media. He takes on anyone, anywhere, without holding back,” Owens said.
But there was plenty of animosity toward Trump as well at the Kasich events. Former House Speaker Doug Scamman turned the praise for Trump’s bluntness on its head.
“People respect people who say what they think. Sometimes you want to think before you say things,” Scamman said. He predicted Trump will drop in the polls soon. “I can’t believe he’s going to go very far,” he said.
John Hodsdon, a farmer from Meredith, said Trump is a “buffoon."
“He’s been a successful one though,” Hodsdon cracked.
The most visceral reaction to Trump came from veteran Dave Moorhead, who was an infantry soldier in the Vietnam War, with the Army’s First Calvary Division. Moorhead said he had been open to considering Trump for president until Trump said last weekend that U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-A.Z.) – who was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam conflict – was not a hero.
That comment, Moorhead said, was “the lowest most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard come out of some human being’s mouth.”
“I absolutely am totally disgusted by what he had to say,” Moorhead said. “I was interested in listening to [Trump]. Now I won’t even go and listen to him.”
