Aiming to address a recent slew of "mainstream media" polls showing Hillary Clinton holding a decisive lead over of Donald Trump, Breitbart News conducted its own survey. But the conservative news site came up with similar results.

In a poll out Sunday from Breitbart and Gravis Marketing, Clinton led a four-way contest with 42 percent of the vote to Trump's 37 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson earned 9 percent of the vote, while the Green Party's Jill Stein received 3 percent.

The Moment You Realize Trump Finally Crossed the Line

​​This is it.​

How about the elite political press? Is this enough to push you over the line to admitting every day in your coverage that this is not a normal election because the Republican Party has nominated a public sociopath for President of the United States? Once, while contemplating the re-election of Richard Nixon, the late Dr. Thompson once wrote this, and it might be the best single paragraph of political journalism anyone ever wrote:

This may be the year when we finally come face to face with ourselves; finally just lay back and say it -- that we are really just a nation of 220 million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms at all about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable. The tragedy of all this is that George McGovern, for all his mistakes... understands what a fantastic monument to all the best instincts of the human race this country might have been, if we could have kept it out of the hands of greedy little hustlers like Richard Nixon. McGovern made some stupid mistakes, but in context they seem almost frivolous compared to the things Richard Nixon does every day of his life, on purpose as a matter of policy and a perfect expression of everything he stands for. Jesus! Where will it end? How low do you have to stoop in this country to be President?

What he said on Tuesday is something Donald Trump does every day of his life, on purpose, as a matter of policy and a perfect expression of everything he stands for. It seems one could stoop even lower than Nixon to be president.

Sentiment Building to Deport Nation's Billionaires

THE HAMPTONS -- They don't pay taxes. They circumvent our laws. They get free stuff from the government. They are America's billionaires, and many would like to see them gone.

According to a new survey by the University of Minnesota's Opinion Research Institute, the American people hold the nation's billionaires in lower esteem than ever before, and a majority would like to see new laws enacted to deport them.

"They come here, take thousands of our jobs, and export them overseas," one respondent said, in an opinion echoed by many others in the survey.

"They are part of a shadow economy that sucks billions of dollars out of the United States every year and puts it in Switzerland and the Caymans," another said.

Images of hedge-fund managers arriving via helicopter in the Hamptons this summer have only reinforced the impression that authorities have turned a blind eye to their movements.

"Many of these people should be in prison, and the government is looking the other way," one respondent said.

Stirring even more controversy is the billionaires' practice of having babies in the United States and using the nation's porous estate-tax laws to pass down untold wealth to the next generation.

"They should leave and take their children with them," one respondent said.

Even after it is pointed out to respondents that some billionaires, such as Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, have made significant philanthropic contributions to the world, a majority of those polled stubbornly maintained their negative views of billionaires.

"Look, in every group you're going to have some good ones," one of the respondents said. "But that doesn't take away from the fact that the vast majority of these people are destroying this country."
