Another MD GOP Official Rebukes Trump , Clinton Opens Up Double-Digit National Lead

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

If you recall last week the story of Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan refusing to vote for Donald Trump this year. Now, we also have my Republican County Executive Allan Kittleman joining the growing parade of sensible Republicans refusing to put their name behind Donald Trump. A snippet from The Baltimore Sun.

In unvarnished words, Howard county’s top Republican, County Executive Allan Kittleman, excoriated the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party, joining a rare rank of local elected Republicans who publicly renounced Donald Trump and said they will not vote for him in November.

“I believe in principle and I believe it’s important to stick to your principles,” said Kittleman. Donald Trump, he said, does not represent his “strong feelings” on civil rights and diversity. Trump’s comments “frustrate” him. “That’s not how I was raised,” Kittleman said.

Good for him, but sadly as the article indicates, there are still elected Republicans who have no problem associating themselves with Trump. As I said before, it is actually becoming easier and easier to reject Donald Trump as a Republican and this morning, we have a new poll from The Washington Post showing what a complete and utter disaster Donald Trump is going to be for Republicans.

Hillary Clinton (D) 51%
Donald Trump (R) 39%

Hillary Clinton (D) 47%
Donald Trump (R) 37%
Gary Johnson (L) 7%

This poll was done June 20-23 among 836 registered voters. Meanwhile, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal put it a little closer nationally.

Hillary Clinton (D) 46%
Donald Trump (R) 41%

Hillary Clinton (D) 39%
Donald Trump (R) 38%

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Here is the headline from The Washington Post:

Trump entered June with just $1.3 million in the bank, while Clinton sat on $42 million war chest

It’s time for the Republican Party leadership and delegates to take matters into their own hands.

If Cleveland can win a championship, then there is still hope Republicans will be able to dislodge Donald Trump as the face of the party before the convention….

Clinton Leads Trump By 3% in VA

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Larry Hogan gave a huge gift to Maryland Republicans yesterday who have, up until this point, been too scared to come out against Donald Trump. Now what will be fascinating are those Republican leaders in Maryland who will continue twisting themselves in knots after this announcement trying to still justify their support of Donald Trump when the top Republican in the state now is even saying he won’t support the Republican nominee for President. For some, being a Republican and opposing Trump was considered courageous. I would now argue that it’s actually to the point where as a Republican publicly opposing Trump as the nominee is rather easy.

Public Policy Polling has released a new poll from Virginia that shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 3% with or without Gary Johnson in the race.

Hillary Clinton (D) 48%
Donald Trump (R) 45%

Hillary Clinton (D) 42%
Donald Trump (R) 39%
Gary Johnson (L) 6%
Jill Stein (L) 2%

This poll was done June 13-15 among 1032 registered voters.

Trump/Clinton Tied in Utah

Monday, June 13th, 2016

If anyone wonders why I have been so sporadic lately, it is polls like this new one out today from Survey USA for the state of Utah showing Donald Trump in a dead-heat tie with Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump (R) 35%
Hillary Clinton (D) 35%
Gary Johnson (L) 13%

But wait, it gets worse. With Donald Trump as the face of the Republican Party, he may also take down Republican Congresswoman Mia Love with him.

Clinton Leads Trump Nationally By 3% With or Without Gary Johnson

Friday, June 10th, 2016

Fox News came out this morning with a new poll showing Donald Trump now trailing Hillary Clinton after leading her just three weeks ago in a poll Fox News did.

Hillary Clinton (D) 42%
Donald Trump (R) 39%

Hillary Clinton (D) 39%
Donald Trump (R) 36%
Gary Johnson (L) 12%

This poll was done June 5-8 among 1004 registered voters. Just six weeks, Fox News showed trump ahead by 3% As I said in the previous post, it only is going to get worse from here. If Johnson consistently gets into double digits all through the summer, hopefully they will allow him into the debates and give Republicans another outlet instead of feeling like they have to vote for a racist.
