Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Democrat Hillary Clinton has a 9-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in Ohio following the news of Trump's vulgar talk about women and after the second debate between the candidates, according to a statewide poll released today by Baldwin Wallace University in Berea. Clinton leads Trump, 48 percent to 38 percent, with 14 percent unsure, in a direct match-up, the poll found. When the two minority party candidates are added to the mix -- as they are on state ballots -- Clinton leads by 9 percent, 43 percent to 34 percent.

The REAL problem with national elections is the wide-spread gerrymandering of congressional districts, which has resulted in "Safe" seats for the large majority of US Representatives, Dem or Repub. The Cincinnati Enquirer recently went so far as to NOT endorse anyone running for Congress, recognizing this problem. If this poll is close to accurate, many pols in Ohio will start sweating soon enough...

What comes to mind when I see these poll numbers is the influence women have on how their husbands' vote.

That tape is still being played statewide in Florida. As a woman I cringe now when I see Trump on television. He's such a letch!

My wife has been a pretty loyal GOP voter throughout her life....and she feels the same way now.

I'm a fan of the commercials featuring the former US. military missile silo guys. Great perspective to add to the general election campaign consciousness.

TMASTER had an explanation. Democrats crossed over and voted for Cheeto Crotchgrabber and now they're abandoning him. It's a lame excuse, but what do you expect?

The implosion of the Republican Party has begun.

Stand by for the Deplorables to start lashing out.

I know a lot of men who were aware enough to make these choices long before they were married. Doesn't feel right to give their wives credit.

General Election: Drumpf vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein Rasmussen Reports Clinton 43, Drumpf 39, Johnson 7, Stein 2 Clinton +4
General Election: Drumpf vs. Clinton LA Times/USC Tracking Clinton 44, Drumpf 44 Tie

When you're getting no love from Rasmussen or the LA Times poll, you know it's time to crawl back under your rock, Cheeto.

#12 - RASMUSSEN - LOL!!! I bet you are a big fan of the LA Times poll too.

"Our final daily presidential tracking poll showed Romney at 49% and Obama at 48%. Instead, the president got 50% of the vote and Romney 48%. We were disappointed that our final results were not as close to the final result as they had been in preceding elections. There was a similar pattern in the state polls." - Rasmussen Reports 2012

"For the second consecutive election -- the same was true in 2010 -- Rasmussen Reports polls had a statistical bias toward Republicans, overestimating Mr. Romney's performance by about four percentage points, on average." fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com

Here in reality:
NBC/Wall St. Journal Clinton +10
The Economist Clinton +5
Reuters Clinton +7
The Atlantic Clinton +11
Fox Clinton +4
