Top Dem. Pollster: Trump Can Win Election if He Has ‘One Sane Month’

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump gestures following his speach during a campaign rally in Austin, Texas, August 23, 2016.
Peter Hart, a Democrat and one of the country’s most respected pollsters, admitted on Friday that Donald Trump can win the White House if he has “one sane month” on the campaign trail. After conducting a focus group of Wisconsin voters last night for the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center, Hart appeared on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” and said voters “don’t trust Clinton to give them an honest answer and they don’t trust Trump to be a safe leader.” When host Chuck Todd asked Hart which candidate had the best chance of winning the election and undecided voters after conducting the focus group if he had no idea of any of the current poll numbers, Hart said that Trump did because he has the “better hand.” “I say that as a Democratic pollster,” Hart said, adding that though voters think Trump is “crazy” and “off the board,” if “he had a sane month, which is probably impossible, he would get a full listen from these voters. They still want change and they’re unhappy with what’s going on.” Hart said voters cannot relate to Clinton and “sense that there is a glass curtain. They can’t reach her. They feel that

Palin Blasts #BlackLivesMatter for ‘Disgusting’ Hypocrisy, Making America More ‘Dangerous’

Former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin denounced the Black Lives Matter movement not only for their “disgusting” hypocrisy but also for turning America into a dangerous place where even police officers do not feel safe. In a wide-ranging interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Sunday, which airs on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from from 7 PM to 10 PM EST, Palin called out the Black Lives Matter movement, saying it is nothing but a “farce” because of their “intolerance,” “short-sightedness,” and “narrow-mindedness” that is “really excluding anyone but someone who happens to be a Black American.” “Black Lives Matter is turning our country into such a volatile and scary place that is part of that fundamental transformation of America that Barack Obama had promised to do to America,” Palin told Marlow. She said it is hypocritical of the movement to only want to respect the lives of people who belong to a particular race. And she slammed the Black Lives Matter leaders for condemning politicians who say “all lives matter.” Palin said, “who with common sense wouldn’t say ‘all lives matter’”? She added that this mentality is “disgusting” and “it discredits the

Palin: Trump’s Earned Wealth & Celebrity Allowed Him to Be Perfect Messenger

Donald Trump, Diana Brest
Sarah Palin and billionaire Donald Trump come from completely different backgrounds and coasts. But Palin explained to Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow why Trump is resonating with the same blue-collar Americans who viewed her as their champion when she unrelentingly challenged the established political order. In an interview on Breitbart News Sunday, which airs on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 7 PM to 10 PM EST, Palin said Trump’s successful business record and his celebrity enabled him to be the perfect messenger this election cycle who was able to stand against the interests of the bipartisan political class open borders. Palin told Marlow that Trump’s “candidness,” ability to call “it like he sees it” and willingness to fight to “win for America” are the virtues that the “common man, everyday average garden-variety hard-working American want in a presidential candidate.” “We want someone like that in a position to be able to implement the changes to undo the fundamental transformation of America that we see going on,” Palin said. “That is why the Trump movement is so powerful.” Palin added that Trump connects with the “average man” who is “sick of injustice, sick of the status quo, sick of the

Palin to ‘Sick’ MSM: Stop Claiming Black Lives Matter ‘Thugs’ & ‘Rioters’ Are ‘Peaceful’

Black Lives Matter Reuters
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has a stern and simple message for the mainstream media—stop spreading the false narrative that Black Lives Matter agitators are “peaceful.” In an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Sunday, which airs on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 7 PM to 10 PM EST, Palin emphasized that the Black Lives Matter agitators are “not protesters. These are thugs. They are rioters.” “I’m calling out the media,” Palin said. “Quit claiming that these rioters are peaceful. They are stomping on the flag figuratively and literally. Shouting death to cops. Celebrating violence.” She added that the mainstream media are helping Black Lives Matter agitators perpetuate a message that “evil people are thriving on right now as they try to intimidate and… warp malleable minds” into believing that “one race matters more than another.” She said that is the antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr.’s message. “It’s the antithesis of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights… our charters of liberty that say all men are created equal,” she added. In a Facebook post (“#BlackLivesMatter is a Farce and Hyphenating America Destroys Us”) last week, Palin pointed out that Black Lives Matter activists have shouted

Donald Trump is reportedly ready to announce his vice presidential pick this week, and former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is hoping his choice is not someone from the Republican establishment or the permanent political class. In an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Sunday, which airs on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 7 PM to 10 PM EST, Palin, when asked what she was looking for in Trump’s vice presidential pick, said she wanted someone who is a “bit unconventional” and not involved in “any part of the [political] machinery.” Palin warned that if Trump selects someone from the Republican establishment as his running mate, then “that’s going to turn off too many conservatives.” She feared such a choice would discourage conservatives from “showing up to vote—and that’s a vote for Hillary.” Palin said she wanted Trump to pick someone who “is going top put it all on the the line” like the founders put their personal lives, fortunes, families, and professions on the line to fight for what is right and the future of the country.

Obama: Vote for Hillary Because She’s an Old, Career Politician

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton
In an election cycle in which voters are rejecting career politicians, President Barack Obama on Tuesday praised Hillary Clinton for being an old, career politician. During their joint campaign appearance in North Carolina, Obama said America is a “young country, so we like new things.” Obama, who got elected President in 2008 after not even having served a full term in the Senate, admitted that, “I’ve benefited from that culture. Let’s face it, when I came on the scene in ’08, everyone said, ‘he’s new.’” Obama said he wanted to be “blunt” and argued that Clinton, 68, has “her share of critics” because “that’s what happens when you are somebody who’s actually in the arena.” “That’s what happens when you’ve fought for what you believe in,” he continued. “That’s what happens when you’ve dedicated yourself to public service over the course of a lifetime.” He said sometimes Americans “take for granted” someone like Clinton who has “been in the trenches” to “fight the good fight.” He added that, “sometimes, we act as if never having done something and not knowing what you’re doing is a virtue.” Obama said that does not happen with surgeons or airline pilots. On a day when FBI

Hillary Will Have Trouble Arguing Trump Is ‘Reckless’ After FBI Director Revealed Gmail Accounts More Secure than Her Private Email Server

Gmail
When he revealed on Tuesday that Gmail accounts were more secure than Hillary Clinton’s private server that housed many of America’s top secrets, FBI Director James Comey may have given Donald Trump a huge gift that Trump can use to neutralize Clinton’s central argument against his candidacy—that the businessman is a “reckless” “loose cannon.” Right after Trump effectively secured the GOP nomination, Clinton told CNN, “I don’t think we can take a risk on a loose cannon like Donald Trump running our country… I do think he is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire.” Clinton would later say that Trump is an “unqualified loose cannon” who is “within reach of the most powerful job in the world.” Clinton often lacks a rationale for her candidacy. She gives off the impression that the presidency is just the next step up in the political ladder for her. But her central argument against Trump is that he is someone who is too reckless to be trusted with the presidency and the nation’s secrets and nuclear codes. Warm-up speakers before her Tuesday North Carolina event repeatedly referred to Trump as “reckless.” It is an argument that the Clinton campaign will try

Ex-Secret Service Agent: Mainstream Media ‘Blacklisting’ Me to Help ‘Clinton Machine’ ‘Squash’ Message

Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband former U.S. president Bill Clinton greet supporters during a caucus day event at Caesers Palace on February 20, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Gary Byrne, the retired U.S. Secret Service agent who has written a blockbuster new book about his time in the Clinton White House, suspects that the so-called “Clinton Machine” is getting the mainstream media to “blacklist” him in order to “squash” his message about how Hillary Clinton is unfit to become the country’s next President. Byrne answered questions about his book last week at Barnes & Noble in McLean, Virginia, and C-SPAN aired the event over the weekend. His book, Crisis of Character, reveals some sordid details about the Clinton White House that he observed while standing guard outside of the Oval Office. “They basically unleashed their ‘Clinton Machine’ on me, so to speak,” he said. “I knew I was getting that.” Byrne added that, “I do know that I have been blacklisted from the regular TV channels. We had a couple of things scheduled and then all of a sudden they kind of went away.” When an audience member asked if George Stephanopoulos, the former White House Communications Director and Clinton loyalist who now poses as an “objective” journalist at ABC and hosts the network’s “This Week” Sunday show, has called him for an interview, Byrne answered, “No, he has

New York Times: Don’t Underestimate Trump’s Appeal to Working-Class Voters

A lawsuit was filed against the New York Times on April 28, 2016, by two female, black employees alleging a pattern of discrimination based on age, race and gender at the prestigious daily
Though many many mainstream media members and their allies in the “Never Trump” movement believe Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in to win in November, the New York Times editorial board seems a bit unnerved that Clinton is not polling ahead of Trump by a greater margin. In a July 1 editorial, the Times argued that part of Clinton’s challenge in the general election is “not to underestimate Mr. Trump’s continuing appeal to aggrieved working-class voters.” Ahead of Clinton’s Tuesday appearance in the Tar Heel State with President Barack Obama, the Times specifically focused on the important swing state, where Trump is essentially tied with Clinton even though Clinton has approached swing states like North Carolina “with a traditional mix of advertising, rallies and grass-roots outreach” while Trump is “largely depending on rallies, Twitter and free media promotion” because he “has no money for ads, about one-tenth the staff of the Clinton campaign and, so far, only sketchy plans to address either problem.” The Times frets that while “Clinton holds a double-digit lead in some national polls, in others she leads by low single digits. And though Mr. Trump’s numbers have fallen, Mrs. Clinton’s have not risen by a corresponding amount.” The outlet warns that “Trump
