Winfrey Leads Trump By Double Digits

I guess somebody had to be first and it happened to be Rasmussen Reports. In a new poll they released this morning, they are showing Oprah Winfrey starting out with a double-digit lead over Donald Trump.

PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (Rasmussen)
Oprah Winfrey (D) 48%
Donald Trump (R) 38%

This poll was done January 8-9 among 1000 likely voters.

    . Conservative media did destroy JeB”

    Oh, puhhhhleeeeese…..

    Wobbie finally found Jeb’s real killer and it was “conservative media”?

    LOL

    Conservative media had nothing to do with Jeb’s demise, and of course he was the MSM’s “favorite Republican” so he got plenty of help from them (yes, they would have tried to destroy him later, but in the primaries he was the “adult in the room” and they loved his immigration policy and his attacks on conservatives aks “I will respect them”).

    Jeb lost because he completely misread the mood of the GOP electorate, thought he was going to be anointed the nominee, was woefully unprepared for the debates and the campaign, and had no compelling message on why anybody should vote for him.

    Keep searching for the real killer, but it wasn’t conservative media.

    Also, having Arpaio in the race is a good thing:

    Perhaps, we end up with the candidate we want after all.

    That’s my opinion too. End of story.

    JEB didn’t fit the zeitgeist & neither did Walker, which still shocks me. I’m not going to go all “woe is me” because Walker shot craps, though.

    Warning….

  22. mnw says:

    Instinct causes me to think that Trump would be reluctant to give the Royal Hawaiian Salute (middle finger raised) to his base on immigration.

    His base is kind of “We few, we happy few!” already.

  23. jason says:

    I think legalizing the DACA youth is the right thing to do.

    I think we can afford a wall, but its not really necessary.

    2:00 P.M. EST – THE PRESIDENT: Welcome back to the studio. Nice to have you. (Laughter.) Good morning, and welcome to our first Cabinet meeting of the New Year. 2017 was a year of tremendous achievement — monumental achievement, actually. I don’t think any administration has ever done — has done what we’ve done and what we’ve accomplished in its first year, which isn’t quite finished yet. You never know what’s going to happen over the next few days. And the achievements for our country, our people, and for our standing in the world have been very monumental.

    Now, do we take him literally or figuratively? What does he mean by…going to happen over the next few days.

  25. jason says:

    Question is why would Trump’s base be against a Daca resolution? Do they really think they are going to deport the Dreamers?

  26. Tina says:

    The daca yutes are already packing up and going home. They decliend from 790k to over 620k.

    $26 billion formthem is still $26 billion too much.

  27. mnw says:

    jason

    Because we’ll never get the existentially important things if Trump just concedes a ‘clean’ DACA.

    And yes, I don’t see why Zero’s stupid executive order should be enshrined like the Bill of Rights. I believe a lot of the Dreamers are Fraudsters.

  28. BayernFan says:

    28. Spot on. DACA is the lever. Dems gotta get it to satisfy their base. Trump knows this and is negotiating the price.

    Anecdotal update…

    When I was up in N Wisco after Christmas, the nearby MN newspapers had stories in about big outflux of illegal immigrants in U.S. trudging through the snowy and cold woods to illegally get into Canada since they feel their illegal presence in the U.S. is in jeopardy.

    So, sleep well, praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition, and we’ll all be free.

    Already looks like the GOP has a creditable candidate running for the ISSA seat.”

    Issa’s retirement may have saved the seat for the Republicans. The rumor is he was all but pushed out by Republicans. Hopefully the same will happen with Duncan Hunter, Jr., who is in the middle of a scandal.

  43. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    15. If McSally is the Republican nominee in Arizona, believe she can win the senate seat.

    It will help that Bannon is totally discredited and is now pond scum. Perhaps the Moore debacle was the wake-up call the Republicans needed.

  44. mnw says:

    SDC

    I’ve said this before, but I repeat: the latest available polling shows McSally losing to Sinesma by 2 points. McSally & Sinesma are both Congresswomen, & neither has run for statewide office before (as far as I recall), so the polling may be legit.

    I await evidence to support the proposition that McSally is some sort of electoral powerhouse in AZ. The GOP base isn’t enthused about her, any more than they were about McCain & Flake… but who needs those deadenders?

    /s

  45. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The recall election of California Democratic State Senator Josh Newman has been set for June 5, 2018. A total of 63,593 voters signed the petition for the recall. The Democratic legislature tried to pass a retroactive law voiding the recall, but a court invalidated it.

    If Newman is recalled, and a Republican is elected, the Democrats lose their super-majority in the California state senate. The Republicans have a strong candidate in Ling Ling Chan, who received 49.6% of the vote when she ran against him.

    Californians are angered over Gov. Brown & Democrats raising the gas tax; a petition to repeal it is being circulated. 52% of California voters support repeal (46% strongly) according to a UC Berkeley poll.

    For some reason, the voters in the progressive paradise of California are disturbed they pay more than a dollar more for gas then people in neighboring states. They have not yet learned there obligation is to pay out the nose to fund Governor Brown’s bullet train, so he can save the planet.

  46. jason says:

    I await evidence to support the proposition that McSally is some sort of electoral powerhouse in AZ.”

    Nobody says she is a sure thing, but certainly better than a deadender nitwit like Ward. And I admire Arpaio, but he is 85 and has too much baggage, let’s be realistic.

    McSally is the best bet so far, if someone better comes along fine.

    Let’s not throw away the seat in advance. Ward is the COD and Sharron Angle of AZ.

  47. Paul says:

    I don’t think Trump will have a choice regarding the Muehler interview, right.

  48. Tina says:

    Sinema is formidable.

    A lot depends on wh9 Azs pick AND whether Fraud Floyd endorses. It may be helpful at the margins, even though he is the most hated in az right now.

  49. mnw says:

    jason

    I don’t share your opinion of Ward.

  50. jason says:

    Man caught with a full rack of ribs in his pants. I couldn’t come up with something clever, but have at it.

    “Florida man with a feast stuffed in his pants was arrested trying to sneak out of a grocery store, police said.

    Maeli Alvarez-Aguilar, 26, was taken into custody on a petty merchant theft charge after walking out of the Rines Market IGA store in Indiantown on Dec. 15, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News on Tuesday.

    An arrest affidavit viewed by TCPalm.com said Alvarez-Aguilar “removed a full rack of ribs from his waistband.”

  51. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    49. The last poll I saw showed Ward 7 points behind Simesma, so McSally at 2 points starts out as with higher polling numbers, and she has not even announced yet.

    Arpaio as the nominee would turn into another clown show like Alabama. Ward polls third behind McSally and Arpaio in a recent poll, despite having been an announced candidate for some time.

    All five Republican congressional candidates who won last year would probably be classified as mainstream candidates. Trump has a “base” of support, but what Bannon claims the base represents is mythological.

  52. jason says:

    Ward is a deadender loser, about the same level as COD “I am not a witch” with her conspiracy theories and ties to Alex Jones.

  53. jason says:

    You would think the COD, Angle, Buck, Miller, Moore, Mourdock, Akin lessons would be learned, but unfortunately there are still people that think an absolute moron like Ward can win a Senate seat.

  54. jason says:

    It’s one reason I am no longer a registered Republican.

    I used to feel obligated to vote for people like Ward because, as Wobbie says, has an R after her name.

    No longer. If I lived in AZ and Ward was the R candidate, I would write in Howdy Doody.

    Maybe someday the deadenders will get tired of throwing away winnable senate seats. Not optimistic though.

  55. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Sinema claims to be a moderate, but in fact she is a far leftist. She supported Ralph Nader in 2000, and ran for office under the Green Party.

    She attacked stay-at-home moms:

    “Sinema was asked about “new feminism”, and responded, “‘These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s (bs). I mean, what the (f) are we really talking about here?”

    Running an Air Force colonel who was the first woman to fly a combat aircraft into enemy territory, against Sinema would present quite a contrast. But wait, running McSally who somehow not satisfy the Republican base — what total nonsense.

  56. Phil says:

    Ward is a loser in the GE.

    When you think Ward think Sharon Angle the second.

    I agree with the positive comments regarding the potential candidacy of McSally in AZ, and Diane Harkley’s in CA. They both seem like smart, attractive women with substantial backgrounds.

    Two other people I’ve started to follow in other races are:

    John James for senate in MI, and Mike Gallagher in the WI 8th CD. Both are young and have military backgrounds, which I find is a real plus in a candidate’s resume.

    Lastly, I’m part of that majority who would support a DACA resolution providing them with some kind of legal status, providing certain conditions were met, including having a clean record and being self-supportive. I also think scrubbing chain migration, immigration by lottery, and shoring up border security by whatever means that makes it work would go hand in hand with legalizing DACA participants status here in the U.S.

    (IN RESPONSE TO A COMMENT ABOUT “COMPREHENSIVE REFORM” AND DACA FROM LAST THREAD)

    Chicon,

    I disagree. The more items in a bill the easier it is to fudge the details.

    DACA, Security, Chain, Merit – wrap it up just like that. Easily understood by the voters.

    Everything else should be voted on individually so we can see where everybody stands on each issue.

  63. NYCmike says:

    Just to clarify, as I am a bit confused:

    Ward will definitely lose because of the independents not voting for her, or because the moderate Republicans will not vote for her?

    If it is because of the independents, then all Republicans should hope there is a DACA deal which includes end of CHAIN, MERIT based, and SECURITY items.

    MAKE THE DEMS vote against some of these items! They are winning items!

  64. mnw says:

    NYC

    Agreed. Tucker Carlson cited poll results on these proposals last Friday.

  65. Chicon says:

    Mike, if those four things are voted on in separate votes, decent chance none can survive a filibuster.

  66. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “U.S. manufacturing expanded in December at the fastest pace in three months, as gains in orders and production capped the strongest year for factories since 2004, the Institute for Supply Management said Wednesday.

    . . .The latest gain extends a string of strong readings that’s been fueled by more domestic business investment, improving global economies and steady spending by American households.

    A common refrain from companies surveyed, though, was difficulty finding highly-skilled labor, and some firms are paying higher wages to attract the workforce needed, ISM manufacturing survey committee chairman Timothy Fiore said on a conference call with reporters.”

    A booming economy leads to higher wages?? Who would have thought.

    R delegate who made motion later said it is nothing personal against the Speaker, but he does not like how some things he (the “liberty caucus” delegate) wants does not get pushed through and says it is Speaker/leadership who torpedoes them.

    Motion to table the motion to remove the Speaker passes overwhelmingly in voice vote.

    [This freshman R “liberty caucus” delegate is same one who disrespectfully badgered and heckled the WV governor when governor was in the area to drum up support last fall for a Road Bond special election. Many feel this delegates made an @ss of himself and the R delegated DID apologize for SOME of his behavior–like applauding loudly in the town hall meeting when the governor said he might not even run for reelection in 2020. The governor publicly called him “an 18-carat @ss.” The bond passed statewide by a 77-23 margin and passed in every county except one where it failed by a small margin. The “liberty caucus” Rs actively opposed it. But the “liberty caucus” still feels they are right and the governor, the R House and Senate leadership and fellow R legislators and 77% of WV voters are wrong.]

    Of course the Dems would cave on the wall quicker than ending chain migration. That is exactly why it needs to be done with DACA. Otherwise, Durbin and Schumer will not compromise at all. *

    *Small note: if the notes that I saw on the RAISE Act are correct, that bill would only do away with the current chain migration we have now, where 3rd cousins are allowed in. According to those notes, there would be limited chain migration for parents/spouse/child.

  84. NYCmike says:

    No idea why any Republican would not hold out for the end of chain migration…….wasn’t it only part of Kennedy’s 1965 overhaul?

    Where did it come from when it was first put into law?

    The goal may have been humanitarian, etc. but can anyone honestly say that the law is not being abused?

    Same question with other parts of immigration laws…that causes a whole industry of pregnant foreignors who come here to give birth to their child on U.S. soil to start the chain process….

    Thank you for your report on CA.

    With the droughts, fires, mudslides, earthquakes, etc. will there be anyone left alive there to run other than the illegals?

    “California’s Brown Raises Prospect of Pension Cuts in Downturn

    California Governor Jerry Brown said legal rulings may clear the way for making cuts to public pension benefits, which would go against long-standing assumptions and potentially provide financial relief to the state and its local governments.

    Brown said he has a “hunch” the courts would “modify” the so-called California rule, which holds that benefits promised to public employees can’t be rolled back. The state’s Supreme Court is set to hear a case in which lower courts ruled that reductions to pensions are permissible if the payments remain “reasonable” for workers.

    “There is more flexibility than there is currently assumed by those who discuss the California rule,” Brown said during a briefing on the budget in Sacramento. He said that in the next recession, the governor “will have the option of considering pension cutbacks for the first time.”

    That would be a major shift in California, where municipal officials have long believed they couldn’t adjust the benefits even as they struggle to cover the cost. They have raised taxes and dipped into reserves to meet rising contributions. The California Public Employees’ Retirement System, the nation’s largest public pension, has about 68 percent of assets needed to cover its liabilities. For the fiscal year beginning in July, the state’s contribution to Calpers is double what it was in fiscal.”

    The only way California can survive fiscally is by reducing its pension debt. The Democratic Party in California is controlled by the unions. Polls have already shown they want pension reform, and voter initiatives favoring pension reform were passed in San Diego and San Jose. It is an issue that could bring Democratic control down in California. It would take a strong independent group, which could win in California since its elections are now non-partisan.

    Oprah close to 50% in RAS no less, that is Bernie and Uncle Joe territory!

    That said .. don’t think she runs. But I will say that some of the things I’m hearing about her potential candidacy are eerily similar to what was said about Trump before he declared.

    As the saying goes: Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line. Dems have fallen in love with Oprah? I heard she gave some big speech the other day.

    Didn’t Obama’s celebrity start with a big speech?

    Hmmm…

    Obama made his big entrance on the democrat stage by being the key note speaker at one of their earlier DNC conventions. He literally “wowed” people (just like Oprah did at the Golden Globes), and after that he was on his way to the nomination and presidency.

    So, yes there is a similarity between him and Oprah.

    Ironically, it was Oprah who also coined the slogan that “He’s the one,” referring to Obama’s fate to be president. Now, apparently, “she’s the one,” in many people’s emotional knee-jerk opinion.

    The GOP Governor in Missouri,Eric Greitens, who has been touted as a potential Presidential candidate, could not keep his zipper closed and now is in political trouble. There may be a blackmail angle to this kerfuffle. He indulged with his female barber. What a jerk! Who is the Lt. Governor in the State?

    Trump belittled the US again while standing beside the leader of Norway yesterday. He can’t help himself.
