View Full Version : Where's Hillary?

Hillary Clinton is riding a summer wave in the polls – yet the Democratic nominee has left the campaign trail in recent days to fundraise in America’s wealthiest enclaves, potentially giving rival Donald Trump the opening he needs as he works to regain his political footing.

Her most recent rally was almost a week ago, on Wednesday at a Cleveland high school, followed by a roundtable discussion the following day in New York with law enforcement officials.

Meanwhile, Trump has been essentially non-stop on the campaign trail, trying to re-ignite his White House bid and woo voters in battleground states like Florida, North Carolina and Virginia with his law-and-order message.

Say what you will, Trump keeps drawing in a lot of people every day who want to hear him speak. Nobody is booing at him.

He may be onto something. Generals are as only good as their orders in this day and age. As for his lack of experience, that may be exactly what America needs. Someone who hasn't been cloned through a failed political system which is responsible (in part) for their current situation. Trump is a wild card while Clinton is a clone who will continue to blindly follow in the foot steps of those who continue to lead the country into a state they will never recover from. Either way, the American public will have to choose between continued failure/corruption of Clinton or the fearful random/unknown of Trump.

They are almost equal in the polls now. Combine the Clinton health issue with the email issue and the trust issue, and Trump stands a good chance of winning.
All Trump has to do is keep pushing, and stay focused during the 3 debates.
I think one of his debate strategies is to draw a contrast between Clinton dancing around the answer while he actually get's straight to the point.
However, he has to watch what he says because if he messes up he is done.

He knows that he gains more from playing the underdog who returns from a beating than he gains from just being another player in the game.

If you look at his past polling numbers you will see how much he fell after the Republican convention, and how much he gained in the past few weeks.
He knows drama is a good thing in this race, and Americans love drama. They are the drama kings of the world.

One week after we moved Nevada and Florida from "battleground" to "lean Democratic," both states appear to be snapping back to their traditional toss-up status. Our new CNN electoral outlook places both states back in the "battleground" category and increases the up-for-grabs turf to six states and two congressional districts worth a total of 87 electoral votes.

What's changed?
-- Florida (29) moves from "lean Democratic" to "battleground"
-- Nevada (6) moves from "lean Democratic" to "battleground"

FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Friday the bureau is reviewing new emails related to Hillary Clinton's personal server, a development that shook her campaign 11 days before the election.

The emails being examined are part of an investigation into Anthony Weiner, according to law enforcement sources.

After recommending in July that the Department of Justice not press charges against the former secretary of state, Comey said in a letter to eight congressional committee chairmen Friday that investigators are examining newly discovered emails that "appear to be pertinent" to the email probe.

The Department of Justice, which followed Comey's recommendation not to charge Clinton, declined to comment Friday.

The news is a major development unfolding in the final stretch of the campaign, uniting Republicans and putting the Clinton campaign on defense.

Despite lashing Clinton's email practices as "extremely careless," Comey declined over the summer to recommend prosecution. That move was instantly lambasted by Republicans -- some of whom decried the department's politicization. Comey eventually was called to Capitol Hill to testify and defend the FBI's integrity and decision process.

Clinton calls on FBI to release 'full and complete facts' of email review.

Hillary Clinton forcefully called on the FBI Friday to release "the full and complete facts" about its review of emails related to her personal server.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/28/politics/fbi-reviewing-new-emails-in-clinton-probe-director-tells-senate-judiciary-committee/index.html

Well, why would the FBI release full and complete facts in an ongoing investigation? That does not even makes sense.
All she wants is to know what they know, so she can delete all the evidence on her end and claim she is innocent.
Classic!

I find nothing hilarious about either of these two candidates. Both have the potential to do some real damage on the world stage. There's no spin here Barry. Clinton's camp could no longer contain the damage from the WikiLeaks and decided it was best to get on board with the FBI for the "appearance" of cooperation. Even the Clinton News Network (formerly CNN) is struggling to put a positive spin on this news.

It is not a spin at all. I said months ago that Comey, who was a Republican until July 2016, is going to use the FBI to go after Clinton for purely political reasons.
Think about a few things here:

- First the timing. He knows this will stay headline news until election day.
- Second the association: no politician will want to be associated in the press with Weiner, who has serious issues to say the least.
- Than think about what Trump said a day or so prior to this news making headlines. He said they should stop the election and make him President. Now there is some legal merit to that statement if Clinton gets indited prior to being sworn in as POTUS, because in that case she cannot be sworn in even if she receives a pardon from Obama.

Look at how the graph has changed. Trump is soaring like an eagle and will hit the 50% mark before election day.

Most every other poll has things tightening up to 3% or less, which is within the margin of error.
