    Default Donald Trump bounces into the lead

    Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.


    There hasn't been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.

    The new findings mark Trump's best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015.

    You always have to take polls with a salt of grain, but I do think there is a trend where Trump is gaining in popularity. All the Clinton scandals are starting to wear her campaign and support down.

    Dan Rather: "No trying-to-be objective and fair journalist, no citizen who cares about the country and its future can ignore what Donald Trump said today. When he suggested that "The Second Amendment People" can stop Hillary Clinton he crossed a line with dangerous potential. By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics. This is no longer about policy, civility, decency or even temperament. This is a direct threat of violence against a political rival. It is not just against the norms of American politics, it raises a serious question of whether it is against the law. If any other citizen had said this about a Presidential candidate, would the Secret Service be investigating?"

    This is all overblown by the media. If you look at what he actually said, it is clear he was not inciting violence. He was simply saying that the second amendment people can stop Hillary (by voting for him).
    He has made it clear in the past he is in favor of the second amendment, and he is endorsed by the NRA.

    I never got any response for this question on Facebook.

    What would happen if exactly the same remarks were aimed at the POTUS. You figure nothing??? I sure don't.

    Exactly Hans. The anti Trumpers are blindly following every and all news sources slamming Trump. Happily the media sheep haven't a clue and will continue on while ignoring the trail left behind by Clinton.

    "Let's say he really was warning that Clinton will choose jurists for the Supreme Court who will effectively erase the Second Amendment unless gun rights supporters elect him president on Nov. 8.

    Trump suggests '2nd Amendment people' can stop Clinton....

    Yes, forget that Trump was talking about what might happen after Nov. 8 if Clinton wins the election "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know." Let's just agree he was talking about getting out the vote on election day."

    Seems clear to me.

    Stupid at the very least.

    "In a highly uncharacteristic move aimed at resetting his struggling campaign, Donald Trump has said for the first time that he regrets some of the caustic comments hes made that may have caused people pain."

    Now is a good time to remember that politicians are loose with the truth.

    "... he regrets some of the caustic comments he’s made that may have caused people pain." He has been told by handlers to say he 'regrets'. That fool believes himself infallible, above all the rest.

    "Half-Indian man escorted out of Trump rally"

    "I couldn't believe what was going on," he said of the incident. "Obviously now I'm very angry. I've wasted a bunch of time coming here. I may have wasted six months of my life supporting Donald Trump, who doesn't even let me come to his rallies."

    Read the whole story as to why he was escorted out. It has nothing to do with his race.

    Agreed. Anyone seeing this as a race issue is just anti Trump or pro Clinton. Either way, this campaign has proven to be the lasso king of the media sheep.

    You did not read it completely. He was escorted out because he closely resembled an individual who had caused tumult at several other rallies.
    That is all there is to it, and they have every right to escort someone out.

    The media sheep tend to forget that Trump is where he is because of the trail of disaster left behind by Clinton. You need to remember that some of his votes aren't pro Trump as much as they are anti Clinton. Many American voters have had their fill with the (Clinton carbon copy) type politician and are pushing back by supporting Trump. They're tired of the stereo typical politicians who have run their country into the ground while telling them America is still great. Every 4 years they throw their support behind another carbon copy leader who disappoints and leaves them 4 years further behind. They are fed up and they are pushing back.

    So the next time you want to do a MSM dump on Trump, ask yourself this.................why is he there and why are they supporting him?
