Latest National Polling – Donald Trump 30% – With Updates On GOP Race…

Morning Consult has updated their latest national polling results utilizing 1,543 registered voters Sept 24th – Sept 27th.  Consult has, over time, shown to be one of the few consistently accurate polling organizations when compared to regional and state level polls of similar scope.  MC also, over time, has reflected the overall social media sentiment with accuracy.

The latest poll shows Donald Trump maintaining 30% electorate support with Ben Carson coming in second at 15%.  If this were Jeb Bush maintaining 30% (over two months) the GOPe would be demanding that all other candidates coalesce and give Jeb their immediate loyal support.  Alas, because this is not “their guy” the establishment continue to fight to tear Trump down:

The overall plan to elevate GOPe Carly Fiorina and GOPe Marco Rubio continues via extraordinary efforts in the media to push the establishment players to the top of the field.  However, while some of the electorate have been swayed by the propaganda, there’s good news – The polled support showing visible traction is not enough to accomplish the task.

Candidate Jeb Bush attends Chamber of Commerce dinner with Fox's Rupert Murdoch and Valerie Jarrett (December 2014)

Given the scope of the GOPe efforts to push Fiorina and Rubio, via 24/7 advocacy on MSM and particularly Fox News, the polling overall shows the electorate is aware of the scheme and manipulation.  Everyone knows, from the experience in 2012, that right behind the Fiorina/Rubio plow is the real candidate they are working for, Jeb Bush.

Ben Carson remains the favorite of the religious voter, the evangelical base, who vote almost exclusively based on social issues and social concerns; whereas Trump is pulling in the moderate and independent leaning voter.  This is a critical difference because it shows how Trump can easily win the general election with a much more broad base of support.

This broad base of support is also the threat which the Wall Street team, funding the GOPe efforts, consider the greatest risk to their retention of power.

The overall objectives of “Operation Hummingbird” appear to have ‘moderate’ success.  With Fiorina and Rubio having some gains in the polls, it saves Jeb from an all out abandonment by Wall Street.  In return this is saving Hillary from a similar fate.

Wall Street is precariously hanging on to the hope that Trump can be destroyed by the GOPe apparatus.  Some damage has indeed been done, but not enough to stop the overall plan – Donald Trump is proving to be much more difficult to remove than any prior candidate Karl Rove has destroyed.

With Trump holding tough, and the assault continuing, Joe Biden’s entry remains in a holding pattern.  CNN has stated Biden can enter their Democrat debate on October 13th with merely a public announcement/indication of his intention to run for office.  This affords the GOPe with additional time to prop up Jeb and continue the fight against Trump.

The Opposition Research available on both Carly Fiorina (more here) and Marco Rubio is so devastating, it will be no problem for Team Rove to use their traditional maneuvers to take out either in favor of Bush when/if the time comes.

A person closely watching the race will take note that Team Rove/GOPe have done nothing to attack Ben Carson.  Transparently this ‘hands-off’ approach is an effort to utilize Carson as a tool to weaken the primary opponent Donald Trump.

    The main problem for Rove is that Trump has this oppo available to him as well. And these are on MAIN issues, not some crazy rumors. So whilst the media pumping Carly and Rubio will have somewhat of an effect, Trump can at least blunt that pretty well. It’s good to have your own megaphone. When is Trump meeting with Ailes BTW? Wasn’t that supposed to be this week?

    Trump appeals to a large cross section of voters. I honestly believe he will be able to pull a big portion of the evangelical vote over Carson. People just need to be educated on Carson and his left leaning ways. A lot of Democrats will end up voting for Trump too. His tax plan he announced today will bolster his poll numbers too. I refuse to believe he is running neck to neck with Carson. The one thing that concerns me is that many people believe what the media including Fox is selling. The Zimmerman and Wilson cases come to my mind. What the media told was the farthest thing from the truth yet people believed it hook, line, and sinker. Wake up America. America depends on it. Trump for President.

      The origins of the Treehouse are wrapped in the projections of someone who said that none of us were doing enough.

      Anyone who is not already proactive on their own does not somehow become our joint responsibility. We’re being proactive (speaking for myself and the other admins and Sundance) in every way we are capable of 24/7. How and where and when you are proactive is up to you, just like it was up to each of us.

    -BTW Trump will win. “saw” him with his wife at podium. acceptance speech? not sure. all beautiful pastel flower pedals fall from heaven into place to form silhouette of Trump with wife at his side at podium.
    -Fiorina soon fade away on her broom. curtains for carly, too incompetent. too cold. too angry. too rigid. too dark. disaster follows her wherever she goes and whatever she touches.
    -Carson too also will fade, great man, but public speaking, interviews, looks strange with hesitation, stammering and eye squinting staring upward. too uncomfortable. feels quietly powerful but at rest, stalled. some of his evangelicals will go over to Trump over this. last interview and upcoming debates will not do him well.
    -bush and the rest are history. just noise. just distraction. fueled by sole desire to be president out of want, not called. uses hate, anger, power lust, with no message in heart or soul to save America. America must do great things in the times ahead, cannot do broken, America must stand strong again.

    TRUMP WILL WIN. he’s heaven sent. it’s as simple as that. willing. able. called. heeded the call. nothing to gain but more to lose, won’t take salary, won’t take bribes. not in it just to be the president. honest. hates lies. heart and soul for America. economic plan sealed the deal. 9-28-2015.

    Trump’s tax plan is a major disappointment. It sounds like Jeb Bush’s plan on steroids. It’s not new or unique. It’s a standard supply side tax plan where most of the benefits go to the top. When Trump previously talked about his tax plan, he actually got support from people across the political spectrum. Paul Krugman was even praising him. Bruce Bartlett, the former Reagan budget guy, praised him. I thought, “Wow! Maybe Trump will appeal to Democrats even!” Not with this tax plan. Today, Bartlett is slamming Trump’s plan. I think everyone is disappointed but Grover Norquist.

    Because of this, I’m questioning Trump’s commitment to Senator Sessions immigration plan that he supposedly adopted. A major component of that plan is a reduction in LEGAL immigration, which is key to increasing wages of Americans and protecting our jobs. I hope I’m wrong. Immigration is what drew me to Trump in the first place.

    “. . .Donald Trump is proving to be much more difficult to remove than any prior candidate Karl Rove has destroyed. . .”

    So, I wonder what the Wall Street and Chamber Of Commerce poobahs will do if Trump takes the
    GOPe/Rove strategy and makes them eat it? When Trump wrote “The Art Of The Deal” he wasn’t kidding—he really does know how this game is played and he’s so good at it that it didn’t bother him at all to write what is basically an instruction manual that explains his methodology. As Trump continues to run circles around their stunned, stand-in candidates, the GOPe operatives are finding that they’re up against somebody who is better than they are at their own game. In all things, art, business, and politics, this is a humbling experience. It’s also anxiety producing because, at it’s core the hummingbird strategy depends on stealth, and Trump isn’t about to allow them that kind of cover. And the reason he isn’t allowing them that kind of cover is because he’s understands every technique, every nuance that they’ve always depended upon others not knowing about. In my work I’ve enjoyed the opportunity of studying virtuosity. One thing I’ve learned about these very unique people is this: they know how good they are. That’s Trump. GO TRUMP!!!

        WaPo put out the definitive article w/ full details/proof ‘Hillary is the Original ‘Birther'”

        Chris Clizza puts out a sad lament that Gallup polling shows trust in the media at all time low. I and others were sure to mention MSM trashing of Trump.

        Trump comes out w/ his tax plan. It gets good reviews from WSJ Steven Moore, WS Bill Kristol, MSNBC audience had 72% approval rating of his plan

        Trump admits to financial reporter that perhaps he’s been a bit ‘childish’ at times, noting he’s a counter puncher but maybe gets a bit carried away.

        Ichan goes public w/ his endorsement.

        Flawed candidates Rinorina & Sweatio aren’t gaining enough traction to derail Trump. Jeb is no ones favorite and articles noted his the least likable candidate.

        Bill’s sales job for Hillary didn’t work. He didn’t seem to supportive of Hillary. Actually, he seemed to have more good things to say about Trump. I don’t think Bill wants the WH.

        Biden holding up well, even though not on ballot, and one story headline shouted he outdistanced Cankles.

      Senator Cruz has made many mistakes, but he has also made some clean alliances while working in that cesspit we call Congress, and that will help provide a framework for the inevitable Republicans who will be wanting to make new alliances as the gope frays and falters.

              Can’t discriminate against the handicapped, even though being sighted might come in handy as President.

              Can you imagine the first one on one with Putin. Putin is all sincere when he talks, but is making hand puppet motions and pig noses, crossing his eyes, etc.

              Or say a general is trying to explain the Iranian nuclear missile deployment, “As you can see Mr President the missiles are on the launching pads…Oh crap, sorry.”

              “No, Mr. President, not that button, the other button. Hang on, I have to call NORAD and tell them it was a false alarm…again.”

              Jeezz….

      I voted for the black guy in 2008. Wrote in Alan Keyes. He’s insane, too, but in a good way. Couldn’t vote for war monger and open-borders amnesty supporter McCain. Obama was, of course, out of the question.

    GOP Primary Report: Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Rand Paul To Quit Presidential Race?

    Sources spoke on condition of anonymity to Politico last week. In Iowa, 25 percent of those surveyed said Jindal will be next to drop. “He’s become desperate,” an Iowa source said. “He’s taken to attacking Trump [we know how that worked out for Perry and Walker] and has nothing going on here in Iowa.”

      Rubio’s sweat is glistening…He’s been hitting for two or three days now. Trump doesn’t directly respond, which Rubio wants. Instead says FACTS about Rubio’s record when asked, and did slip in a gratuitous mention at the tax plan reveal.

      Rubio is doing the same thing as the others, trying for earned media due to attacks. The problem with that plan, especially when initiating an offense, is it should be timely and accurate. Rubio’s attacks like Perry, Graham, et al, have been PERSONAL attacks, for the most part, or wildly inaccurate biz ones, on rare occasions. This make Sweatio look even more petty.

        Trump dismisses him. A “lightweight” who doesn’t know anything about trade deals; not his own man. Needs money. Controlled by his donors, special interests, lobbyists.

        This, at the Q&A after his tax plan reveal yesterday, was masterful.

      When frauds like Rubio publicly freak out, it’s a good sign things are not going well for them.

    • If Rubio sold Americans down the Yangtze River, as the deciding vote on that trade bill, he’s going to be in Jindaltown very, very shortly.

    Only the CNN poll was shown on the Breaking Tonight! show featuring regular Marc Thiessen trashing Trump. (“The Trump show is getting a little tired”). He specifically pointed out that Trump had been in the 30s prior to the debate but was now at 21% and in “some other polls at 23% and 25%”.

    For those (like me) who need a refresher on polling — methodology, limits, analysis — here are two sites with easy to read explanations. There is a menu bar running horizontally across the top of each main page with 5 topics:

    Delving a bit more into the NBC/WSJ poll, there are a number of oddities in the responses throughout. I don’t want to dismiss a poll just because it seems like an outlier to me, but…..

    Well, take a look at the example below and tell me if something seems amiss.

    Now I am going to ask you a few questions for statistical purposes only.
    QF1b/c A lot of people are unable to get out and vote for many reasons. Did you happen to vote in the November

    Planning $25 million ad buy. If that doesn’t lift his poll numbers, it may be sayonara for his donors. Especially the biggies that the article stresses want to back a winner.

    • I’m thinking that Tom Donahue will divert some of that $100 million of CoC money to Jeb, if it ever comes to that. These days, all any campaign needs is just enough to keep the “official” staff in place, while the Super PACs carry the heavy weight..

    Trump hits it just right – once again. He has the incredible ability to come up with sound bite tags for the other candidates that stick: “low energy”, “a kid”, “lightweight”, “that face”, now “controlled by their donors, the special interests, the lobbyists” …

    Donald Trump: Marco Rubio a ‘lightweight,’ ‘desperately needs money’

    “Senator Rubio is a lightweight — we understand that,” Mr. Trump said, speaking during a question-and-answer session after unveiling details of his tax plan. “He wouldn’t be able to do this — he wouldn’t know a trade deal from any other deal and what certain people are trying to do is they’re trying to take – we just went up in the last poll, we went up two points in the last poll and we continue to go up.” (Snip)
    “I’m funding my own campaign – guys like Rubio, I mean, he desperately needs money — ask the car dealer in Florida,” Mr. Trump said, a possible reference to billionaire Norman Braman, who has given millions to a pro-Rubio super PAC. “Ask the people that support him. And a guy like Rubio, and others — I don’t want to single him out, you’re singling him out — but they’re largely controlled by their donors, the special interests and, frankly, more than anybody else, the lobbyists.”

    Fiorino,Rubio,,Kasich, Christie, then Bush. (these are the five certain Rovarians) The Rove strategy is to “surge” all of them then settle them out at about 10%. Then along will come the Boooosh surge. The next debate will be eight candidates. Five Rovarians, Carson (if he is not a stealth Rovarian), Cruz, (if he is not a stealth Rovarian) and Trump. Paul, Huckster, Sanitarium, Pataki, and Linda will not make the cut.
