Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 15, 2016

While the presidential horse race between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump remains close, American likely voters say 62-38 percent that Clinton is qualified to be president and 61-38 percent that Trump is not qualified, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Clinton tops Trump 48 - 43 percent in a head-to-head matchup. With third party candidates in the race, results are too close to call, with Clinton at 41 percent, Trump at 39 percent, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson at 13 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 4 percent.

"Trump trails Clinton on foreign policy, immigration, experience, intelligence and level-headedness, but perhaps most damning, American likely voters say 61-35 percent that 'the way Donald Trump talks appeals to bigotry,'" said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

They both suck. Nothing like an argument between partisans.

Hillery is more than likely done. Caught in too many lies. Coverups and spin do not increase trust. Trump is probity wrong about most of the nonsense he says, it doesn't matter. The LA Times show Trump ahead by 6% and rising. He is actually doing better than Reagan did against Carter six weeks out. What makes Trump appealing? Positive, optimistic, successful, a lot better looking than that crone in a pants suit. I do not like the Yankee bastard and I an not voting for him, but I expect he is going to win. At this point he would have to be caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl not to win.

[...] How is Trump going beat Hillary on those traits? It's more of a Hillary landslide.

And everyone in the northeast and the left coast thought McGovern was going to win.

Get serious. The fact that 61% think a candidate unqualified for president is news.

It is funny how Trump supporters always cite the LA Times poll. That poll questions the SAME people over the course of the election. So, any bias (one way or the other, intentional or not) is baked into the poll for entirety of the election. Comparing it to other polls, it seems to have about an 8 point bias towards Trump. Which seems to be consistent with Hillary maintaining about a 2 point lead over Trump.

Regardless of what Fox News has been trying to teach you, just because someone says something that you agree with, it does not necessarily mean that it is true.

Btw... I think that the LA Times poll is a very good poll if you realize its limitations. Because it is polling the same people every time, it is very good at showing trends over time (you are not going to have outliers caused by bad or unlucky sample selection during a poll). So, as long as you account for its bias, it is actually a very reliable source for determining relative changes in the race.

And yet the polls are very very tight. What does that say about her brilliance?

The most shocking news here is that these voters are actually thinking.

More importantly what does it say about OUR brilliance?

16 - She owns this one. She has spent an entire lifetime preparing and working for this campaign.
She can't seal the deal. For all her brilliance, she is not likeable or trustworthy.
If Trump wins, they shouldn't leave HRC alone with tennis shoes with laces..

"If Trump wins".... I sure appreciate your pessimism, you guys cannot wait to make America Hate Again...but if Hillary wins will Trump finally shut his lying pie hole?

I doubt it. How many years will it take for him to admit to his lies this time?

Anyway the "deal" is not done.

Let's meet again on November 9th and compare notes.

Hillary represents the corrupt global status quo. Trump represents hope and change. The electorate is always hoping for change and instead we get global puppets like Obama, who protect money changers and elites, and push TPP.

Like it or not Trump is not going to be a puppet like Obama turned out.
