If Fox said it, it must be true.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/30/fox-news-poll-clinton-ahead-trump-after-debate-fear-motivating-both-sides.html

Hillary Clinton has gained ground on Donald Trump, who has slipped in key measures of the presidential race after the first debate.

First, the horserace. Clinton is ahead of Trump by three percentage points: 43-40 percent in the four-way matchup, according to a new Fox News Poll of likely voters. Her advantage is within the pollís margin of sampling error. Two weeks ago, Clinton was up by one (41-40 percent).

Third-party candidates Gary Johnson (8 percent) and Jill Stein (4 percent) remain in single digits.

In the two-candidate head-to-head, Clinton tops Trump by five: 49-44 percent. Two weeks ago, Trump was up by one (46-45 percent).

And still the press doesn't serve the public interest.

Do not get me wrong: It is flipping great that trump is making a fool of himself with the fat shaming tweets about Miss Universe from 20 years ago, but I can not help but notice that the Cuba embargo scandal and the new revelation about the un-certified trump foundation have fallen off the radar within two days in favor of a new national enquirer headline.

Even if tweet-gate hadn't taken place, those scandals would have been forgotten.

Sums up Trump's latest debacle nicely.

"The best way to dispel the perception that you have a problem with cocaine and/or women is to rant on Twitter at 3 in the morning."

Why isn't this the proverbial "shot heard 'round the world?" Why isn't this trump's "47%-gate?"

Forget the chauvinism and the misogyny, all the fumbling and the sniffling, the smirking, the interruptions, and the unpreparedness:

IN A TELEVISED DEBATE IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE OF MILLIONS, AND AT A TIME WHEN HIS REFUSAL TO RELEASE HIS RETURNS SHOULD GIVE PAUSE, A MAJOR CANDIDATE FOR THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND ALL BUT ADMITTED HE WAS "SMART" FOR NOT HAVING PAID HIS TAXES ...

...AND NO ONE IN THE MSM IS SO MUCH AS BATTING AN EYE.

I just had to get that of my chest.

Thanks.

CNN Post - Debate Poll: Hillary Clinton was clearly the winner, Trump was clearly the whiner.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/27/politics/hillary-clinton-donald-trump-debate-poll/index.html

Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of Monday night's debate by 62% of voters who tuned in to watch, while just 27% said they thought Donald Trump had the better night, according to a CNN/ORC Poll of voters who watched the debate.

*snip*

Voters who watched said Clinton expressed her views more clearly than Trump and had a better understanding of the issues by a margin of more than 2-to-1. Clinton also was seen as having done a better job addressing concerns voters might have about her potential presidency by a 57% to 35% margin, and as the stronger leader by a 56% to 39% margin.

*snip*

Although the survey suggested debate watchers were more apt to describe themselves as Democrats than the overall pool of voters, even independents who watched deemed Clinton the winner, 54% vs. 33% who thought Trump did the best job in the debate.

*snip*

About half in the poll say the debate did not have an effect on their voting plans, 47% said it didn't make a difference, but those who say they were moved by it tilted in Clinton's direction, 34% said the debate made them more apt to vote for Clinton, 18% more likely to back Trump.

Trump foreign policy advisor being investigated for ties to Russia

Sorry, my phone is not cooperating with regards to copying text.

please talk me down from this ledge. 1 step fwd, 2 steps back with the media and HRC!

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-09-19/paul-combetta-computer-specialist-who-deleted-hillary-clinton-emails-may-have-asked-reddit-for-tips

every flipping time trump's obvious skulduggery comes to light, there is a shiny new Clinton story from which to glean.

Synopsis: it appears HRCs tech person allegedly went to Reddit for tips on how to wipe e mails, and a house panel wants to know if, when, and why. It is all a conflicting mess right now, but dammit!



I am not a concern troll: just getting frustrated at this campaign, and it helps to know what we are up against. expect this crap to be front and center tomorrow.

thanks again for allowing the vent.

I'm skeptical, but WAPOs article about the trump fdn is being picked up....

@ press time, it was 3rd down from the top story on google news. here is hoping they stick with it.

even tucker Carlson's RW rag has it.

Pissed off.

1. Trump's "press conference" about his birther comments is an infomercial for his new DC hotel, MSM headlines reflect the birther non reversal and his effort to blame Hillary. Deep in the article we find the fact that he is lying.
2. His son's reasoning for Trump's refusal to release his tax returns is that doing so would invite too much scrutiny. The story is buried on blog sites while MSM ignores it. He will get away with not having to to release them at all.
3. Bondi bribe story dying while "pneumonia-gate" affects the polls.
4. His Flint, Michigan diss/lie about the pastor who shussed him dies, but we know it would have killed Hillary.
5. Making Dwyane Wade's cousin's shooting about him. Nothing but a press chiding.
6. Trump University lawsuit does nothing to thwart his momentum, but it would kill any democrat's chances.
7. Child care program for which he claims credit is really for hotel guests, not employees.
8. Major policy flip flop on immigration does nothing.
9. Advocates no armed protection for Clinton. The story will vanish by Monday, not to mention the fact that the laughable concept of disarming government agents in charge of protecting the president is not the same thing as asking for reasonable gun control measures. MSM ignores Trump's false equivalency.
10. Charges of raping underage girl. Jimmy Fallon musses his hair.
11. Claims he will create 25 million jobs. No one asks how.
12. Lies about what happened on his Mexico visit. Anyone else would still stink of the very idea of lying about a head of state. Not him. Story forgotten.
13. Woman assaulted at Trump rally. Cops let perpetrator go, proving "basket of deplorables" comment has a ring of truth, yet it is still seen as a liability for Clinton.
14. Middle class economic growth story forgotten.
15. Hillary's 3-5 point lead described as a "dead heat tie" by MSM.
16. Newsweek "bombshell" story about Trump's conflicting business interests goes down the tubes.
Add your own.

Please don't ask me what my point is and don't give me any "concern troll" crap. This is legit. I've donated to her campaign and I am doing my part to help. I have a right to be worried and angry. It shouldn't be like this. You have heard it before: He is doing things that would kill any democrat's chances, and the press and public are complicit.

VOTE.

Thanks for the permission to vent.

Screw his health. WHERE ARE HIS FLIPPING TAX RETURNS? n/t
