Clinton Leads Trump Nationally By 13%

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

And so the landslide begins. CNN and Opinion Research Corporation have a head-to-head poll between Hillary CLinton and Donald Trump and it shows Clinton up by 13% nationally over Trump.

PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (CNN/ORC)
Clinton 54%
Trump 41%

This poll was done April 28-May 1 among 890 registered voters. By the way, this same poll showed John Kasich with a 7% lead over Hillary Clinton (51-44%), but that won’t happen at this point. You just have to shake your head at this point….

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Going forward, I am only going to focus on the General Election, The primary season is effectively over at this point and we might as well continued to be depressed by the electoral disaster Donald Trump is going to foist upon the Republican Party once he officially becomes the face of the party that each and every Republican running for office or each and every Central Committee member is going to have to run with him or away from him. We start today with the poll earlier from Public Policy Polling for the state of Ohio that shows Trump trail Clinton in this must win state.

PRESIDENT – OHIO (PPP)
Clinton 44%
Cruz 35%

Clinton 45%
Trump 42%

Kasich 43%
Clinton 41%

Ted Strickland (D) 38%

This poll was done April 26-27 among 799 registered voters.

Biggest Polling Loser From MD – Gravis Marketing

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Since this is mainly a site dedicated to polling, I could not this primary night in Maryland on Tuesday pass without mentioning the polling disaster in Maryland’s District 1 from Gravis Marketing. If you remember this post from January, Republican challenger Mike Smigiel released a poll from Gravis Marketing claiming he had a 58%-29% lead over incumbent Andy Harris. It actually led to some to claim Harris might be in trouble.

The final results from Tuesday night? Andy Harris defeated Mike Smigiel by a blowout margin of 78%-11%.

My Ballot for Tuesday

Monday, April 25th, 2016

It is finally Election Day here in Maryland and tomorrow morning, I will be casting this ballot.

PRESIDENT
[X] John Kasich

US SENATE
[X] KATHY SZELIGA

US HOUSE 3
[X] MARK PLASTER

DELEGATES TO GOP CONVENTION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Janet Moye Cornick (Uncommitted)
[X] Mary Beth Tung (Christie)

ALT DELEGATES TO GOP CONVENTION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Joyce Pope (Rubio)
[X] Jeff Robinson (Rubio)

BOARD OF EDUCATION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Vicky Cutroneo
[X] Christina Delmont-Small

I decided to do some bullet voting for delegates and the Board of Education instead of choosing all three spots. Normally in Maryland, which Presidential candidate wins the primary drags their assigned delegates across the line as well and right now, that would be Donald Trump if the polls hold.

MD-SEN: Van Hollen Opens Up Huge 16% Lead

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Keeping up my sporadic posting, I will stick with my home state and the new poll from Monmouth University that has Chris Van Hollen now opening up a huge lead over Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary for the US Senate.
