Post-Iowa Presidential Poll Shows 2 Shifts That Could Swing Election Results

The presidential candidates from both parties have moved their campaigns from Iowa to New Hampshire in preparation for Tuesday’s primary.

Residents of New Hampshire have had a chance to reflect on Iowa, and recent polls post-Iowa show how the competition stacks up.

According to a WHDH 7News/UMASS Lowell Tracking Poll of New Hampshire voters, Donald Trump leads among Republicans with 38 percent, Ted Cruz is a distant second with 14 percent, Marco Rubio has 12 percent, Jeb Bush with 9 percent, and John Kasich with 7 percent. Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Rand Paul came in with less than 7 percent (Paul announced Wednesday he was suspending his campaign).

The polls demonstrate Trump is stagnantly staying in first place, not moving up or down, as is Cruz. But Rubio has moved up two percentage points, possibly a result of his performance from the most recent GOP debate which Trump chose not to attend.

On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders is expected to crush Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. Sanders is currently leading the vote with 61 percent to Clinton’s 32 percent. And since there are very few Democrat candidates to choose from, the outcome is expected to remain the same on Tuesday. WHDH reports Sanders fell two points while Clinton gained two.

These latest poll numbers would be drastically different if the bottom half of the Republican field decides to drop out of the race, freeing up voters to focus on the candidates with the best chance of winning the GOP nomination for president. Since Iowa is the only state to have held a primary (caucus) — and the fact only two of the previous five winners of the caucus on the Republican side have gone on to win the party’s nomination — it may be too early for most candidates to make a final decision on their campaigns.


Breaking: Hillary Just Got The Only News That Could Be Worse For Her Than The FBI Investigation

For supposedly being the presumptive front-runner for the Democrat Party nomination for president as the primaries near, Hillary Clinton’s trouble seem to be growing, not subsiding. Not only has the FBI announced that it is expanding its investigation into her, Hillary just got more news she won’t like.

In yet another blow to Clinton’s campaign for president, new polls in New Hampshire are showing the self-proclaimed socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, with a double-digit lead.

According to The Hill, a poll released on January 11 shows Sanders with a 14-point lead over Clinton in New Hampshire only a month out from the Democrat primary there.

The Monmouth University poll finds support for Sanders standing at 53 percent, while Clinton saw only 39 percent. This is a strong reversal from previous results; only two months ago, she was leading with 48 percent over Sanders’ 45 percent in the Granite State.

“New Hampshire Democratic preferences are getting baked in, with Sanders gaining the upper hand,” Monmouth polling director Patrick Murray said as the poll was released. “The final question will be who does a better job at turning out their respective voting blocs.”

The Monmouth poll is the second poll to find Sanders with a commanding lead in New Hampshire, though the RealClearPolitics average of polls gives Sanders a much smaller 4.3 percent lead in the early primary state.

Meanwhile, Fox News reported recently that sources inside the FBI say the agency’s probe of Clinton’s use of private email servers while she was secretary of state is now expanding to issues of public corruption.

“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge.

Fox News also reported that an intelligence source said that FBI agents would be “screaming” if a prosecution of Clinton is not pursued because “many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation.”

Something Beyond Stunning Was Just Revealed About Trump And Minorities- Liberals Will Lose It

Voter anger at D.C. dysfunction is not a whites-only fuse burning across America. According to a new WND/Clout poll by Clout Research, neither is the voters’ hope for the cure to bloated, do-nothing bureaucracy.

The poll shows Donald Trump connecting with broad layers of discontent among all of America’s demographic groups to emerge as “a significant favorite to win the nomination.”

Forty percent of black voters support Trump over anyone else, according to the new poll, while 45 percent of Hispanic voters back the Republican presidential front-runner. Trump was supported by 37.7 percent of all whites. Overall, Trump was favored by 37.8 of respondents. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was a distant second at 23.1 percent.

The poll showed 60 percent of those who consider themselves very liberal supporting Trump. Trump received 40 percent support among liberals and 41 percent among both moderates and conservatives. By party affiliation, Trump gathered nearly 40 percent of the GOP voters’  support, 31 percent of the independents and 26-plus percent of the Democrats.

People are angry. They are angry,” Trump said in an interview Sunday. “I’m not tapping into the anger, and some people have said I’m doing that, and certainly I’m not doing it intentionally. I just know it can be turned around, it can be turned around quickly. But I’ll tell you what — if you have another four years of, like, a Hillary [Clinton], that kind of mentality and thinking, we’re not going to have a country left.”

Fritz Wenzel, chief of Clout Polling, stressed that Trump’s broad-based appeal sets him apart from the rest of the GOP field.

“Cruz does so badly among moderates that it is hard to make a case for him as the consensus candidate. Trump’s ability at this stage of the game to gain solid support among all demographic groups makes him a significant favorite to win the nomination,” he said.

Wenzel offered data to support his conclusion.

“It is interesting to note that there is a significant gender gap inside the race for the GOP nomination – as Trump wins only 29 percent support among men but wins 47 percent support among women who will be voting in the GOP primary elections. Among conservative women voting in the GOP primaries, Trump wins 53 percent support,” he said.

Americans Just Responded Loud And Clear To Obama’s Big Terrorism Speech- He Won’t Like It…

Last month, during his climate change speech in Paris, some might say the president wouldn’t stop talking. In fact, the event organizers kept buzzing Mr. Obama to implore him to stop talking.

Fast forward to Sunday night’s 13 minute speech on national security, and apparently, according to the latest Rasmussen poll, Mr. Obama didn’t say enough to reassure the American people that the government is doing all it can at home as well as abroad to combat ISIS. And it wasn’t because the American people weren’t watching. In fact, the viewing audience totaled over 46 million viewers.

Mr. Obama’s approval rating for his Sunday night speech, which featured overtures of gun control, was disappointing at best according to the poll. Only one-in-three voters (34%) approved of Mr. Obama’s response to the mass killing in San Bernardino, California, last week. In fact, 43% of those polled in Rasmussen’s telephone poll think that Mr. Obama’s response to the killings was poor. Rasmussen’s telephone survey of 1000 people was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC; the margin of error was +/- 3 percent with a 95% confidence level.

Western Journalism has been reporting on Obama’s response to the terror attacks. Immediately following the reported attacks, Mr. Obama called for stricter gun control measures. Then, it was later discovered that the guns were purchased legally.

The administration hinted that the motive was workplace violence. Then, it was discovered that it was, indeed, an act of terrorism by radical Islamic terrorists, and that those terrorists were properly vetted through the same program that the Syrian refugee resettlement program uses.

All the evidence pointed to the existence of a terror cell at work in the U.S. that had been plotting to kill Americans for a very long time. Those facts and others may have led the American people to lose confidence in Mr. Obama’s ability to confront the situation and take action.

Something Horrible Was Just Released About Hillary Clinton, And Mainstream Media Is Silencing It

Not one, but two Republican candidates would defeat Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll that shows more voters view Clinton unfavorably than support her.

The Huffington Post-Morning Consult poll of 2047 registered voters was released Wednesday. As of Thursday, a Google search shows no reports by the major media outlets on the poll, taken from Dec. 3 – Dec. 7.

The poll shows both Donald Trump and Ben Carson beating Clinton 45 to 40 percent. The poll has a margin of error of only plus or minus two percent.

The new poll shows Trump far out in front of his opponents. Trump drew the support of 41 percent of the Republican voters surveyed. Carson was second at 12 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was at 10 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was at seven percent. The rest of the GOP field polled below five percent.

In head-to-head matchups against Clinton, Rubio tops Clinton 41-40; Clinton ties former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush at 41-41; Clinton ties N.J. Gov. Chris Christie at 40-40, and Clinton beats Cruz 42-40. All those margins are within the poll’s margin of error.

Bush is the only other candidate to join Clinton with an unfavorable rating above 50 percent, coming in at 53 percent.

The poll also showed that 59 percent of those surveyed disapprove of President Obama’s performance, and 74 percent said the country is on the wrong track.

The media silence about the poll’s numbers comes two days after the Huffington Post, which originally said it would cover Trump’s campaign in its entertainment section, said it would treat the Trump campaign as news. However, that news will come with a strong bias, according to a post from Arianna Huffington.

“We’ll not only be covering the ways Trump’s campaign is unique in recent American politics, but also the disastrous impact it continues to have on his fellow candidates — and the national conversation,” she wrote.
