Latest PPP National Poll Donald Trump Leads 27% – Karl Rove, Fox News and Carly Fiorina all Failing…

The latest round of PPP national polling (pdf below) reflects the absolute disconnect between punditry and reality. Despite a month long campaign to push Carly Fiorina to the top of Mount Trumpet she’s going backward. Ergo, we see why the latest Fox News efforts shift to their last best hope to assist Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio.

Accordingly from PPP: Rubio is really the only candidate who can claim any sort of momentum. He’s gone from 5th place at 7% to 3rd place at 13% over the last five weeks. And he has a 57/24 favorability rating that puts him only behind Carson when it comes to the most broadly liked of the Republican hopefuls. No one other than Rubio has seen more than a 2 point gain since our last poll. (link)

You can read the desperation inherent between the lines of the Beltway Narrative as Donald Trump and the vulgarian assembly continues to retain a significant lead. Only in 2016 electoral politics would the current theme be displayed:

Trump is going to lose his way to victory !

Check out this tweet from the PPP pollsters:

Yes Alice, Trump’s “weakest groups” are the groups he’s leading.

Think about that for a few moments.

Indeed, it would appear Donald Trump and the Vulgarian uprising are going to lose their way to victory…..  WOLVERINES !

Nothing on the foreseeable horizon is going to change the current status of the race. Despite Fox News embedding with the Marco Rubio campaign for a three day exclusive courtesy of John Roberts, and despite broadcasting Team Rubio’s message on Murdoch’s network at every possible opportunity, the reality of Marco Rubio is going to lead to the same dead-end venue as previously traveled by Carly Fiorina.

Rubio just has too much baggage. He’s bought and paid for by Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce and Donor Norman Braman. The latter even hired Rubio’s wife to work for his charitable foundation at a cost of $1,000/week and the foundation doesn’t do anything charitable. Well, unless you call paying the wife of your chosen candidate, “charity”. This will all come out soon enough.  ~ FULL BACK STORY ~

      And then, of course, there’s rational exuberance which is an entirely different animal especially when it is a result of significant and good things.

      Things which indicate that obstacles that have been in place for decades — first asserted by power-hungry political co-dependents who fed at the public trough and then strengthened by deception and endless funding of that deception — that those obstacles are finally being weakened by some strength, and some sunshine, and some effective assaults led by Mr. Trump who says what we’re all thinking.

      There’s rational exuberance that ought not be cautioned against. There’s rational exuberance that has to do with momentary resting, breathing deeply during a brief break that strengthens for a return to the battle and the stress.

      Rational exuberance that is based on true achievement in response to some sunlight breaking through the treetops is not a bad thing. Have you never applauded a sunrise?

      Nobody’s asking you to do anything that makes you nervous or uncomfortable, but do not get in the way of those who are momentarily exuberant in the presence of hard evidence that something good is happening which is driven by that machinery concealed deep in the ship of the Republic that has been scorned as dirty and uneducated by the prissy pips in their sparkly white uniforms.

      Mr. Trump knows that deep machinery. He speaks clearly about it. The Machinery appreciates the acknowledgement.

          I think the 2% and below won’t ever be able to function as a proper ‘splitter’ and now, their few votes suck up what might amount to another couple points for Jeb! if they break that way… OR perhaps for Rubio and he’s anointed as the replacement. I know Sundance thinks that won’t happen, and I agree w/ his reasoning. One reason I consider the possibility is Jeb is HORRENDOUS as a candidate. Not likable (polling numbers favorable/unfavorable are a disaster, and the media has been kind) Not quick on his feet. Policy not attractive. Doubt the Rovian GOPe had a clue how much he’d be despised.

          Regardless of the <2% crowd, it seems to me, Operation Hummingbird had to move up their heavy field artillery much earlier than anticipated. There isn’t one reserve splitter left, imo, who can break 10%. So then what? Ditch excess baggage, hoping to lower the spread between Trump and also rans, seems most reasonable. more popcorn

      Looking at the raw data, Rubio (& Carson’s to a degree) favorable ratings w/ TP types indicates, to me, people haven’t quite sussed out Sweatio’s positions on issues like trade & immigration are counter to the typical TP supporters.

      • LOL! i remember that article on grief and how it ties in with the Trump haters. thought i’d post it we can use this AS OUR DONALD TRUMP MAP TO THE WHITEHOUSE lol!

        Denial: Coverage of Trump began with denial that his campaign was real. Initially, few thought he would actually run — after all, he had threatened to run for president before, and he had decided against running for president before.

        Anger: Denial was followed by anger. Anger at his noxious comments about immigrants, at his scurrilous attacks on John McCain’s war record, and on the general grotesqueness of his public persona. And anger, of course, that it all seemed to be working. In this phase, the media deigned to cover him, but only in the most condescending ways possible. The Huffington Post, for instance, made it official policy to tag all Trump coverage “Entertainment” rather than “Politics.”

        Bargaining: The next phase was — and to some degree, still is — bargaining, which has taken the form of continually explaining that even though all signs suggest Trump’s campaign is going gangbusters, it’s still a ridiculous and doomed enterprise. The bargaining coverage of Trump mostly focuses on which more serious candidates will be hurt most by his rise.

        Depression: Coexisting with bargaining is depression. There’s a lot of coverage about what Trump’s campaign says about the state of the American electorate. For instance, David Brooks writes in today’s New York Times that Trump’s rise shows this to be a moment of “scarcity and alienation,” wherein “the cultural elites start feuding with the financial elites” and “the lower middle class starts feuding with the poor.”

        Acceptance: Finally, there’s more and more coverage of Trump that simply accepts him as a political force and tries to figure out what he means.

    I have never been so disgusted in my life. I’m a fairly new GOP convert (was a Democrat most of my life) and I had no idea how dysfunctional this side of the aisle is. The amount of smug jerks is staggering.

    Anyway Rubio needs to be destroyed. He’s the candidate who I think will be the biggest impediment to Trump, not because I think Rubio is some sort of genius but because too many people are duped into thinking he’s the party savior (much like the way in which the left thought of Obama). Rubio’s supporters are the so called ‘smart set’ and dominate a lot of the punditry. Plus he does have pretty high favorables.

    I don’t know what to do short of pointing out Rubio’s weaknesses and promoting Trump. Thanks for all you do, Sundance and everyone who works so hard here.

      Fairly new GOP convert myself who finally saw the light. I think the good news is that there are a huge number of us (previously Democrats) that polling isn’t capturing. If enough of us switch our registration to Republican and vote in the Republican primaries, I think Trump will be safe.

      Getting people to actually make that switch will be the hard part of course. Trump’s team is going to need to lay out a very strong GOTV ground game for the primaries.

        Rubio is actually a very weak candidate and can easily be taken down by Trump. Kid, Boy, Sweathy, inexperienced, water drinking, milk & cookies, were all devastating linguistic kill shots (similar to Jeb low energy) that will bring him down. Just wait a few weeks. You will see the results in future polls.

        Welcome aboard. Actually, it is a good thing that you guys found this wonderful blog because if you have gone into any other “traditional” conservative outlets, I don’t think you would know any difference between the two parties. Actually, I think Trumpy is following our current beloved leader strategy in GOTV approach as you suggested. You can say a lot about our current president, but he knows how to win internal politics. Trumpy is building up his ground games, in early primaries, and hired the people who knows how to get new voters. That is why his engagement w/ the mass is so critical in this process. Whether you agree or disagree w/ his style, position, or political ideology, the more people get involved the better it is for the process. We have lived too long for the status quo to be continued. I strongly believe this is our last stand in getting back to Main Street, not the oligarch class and its pseudo-capitalist system. Once again, welcome to our treehouse.

          I’m not sure there is a difference – I think it’s a uniparty. And I think that Trump is supra-party, he’s above all that. He is the representative of the Americans. He’s not one of them (politicians, regardless of party)…..

            Also think after 16 years of utter rancor on both sides of the aisle, aided by two Presidents, one who didn’t respond to attacks, the other who attacks the populace, Congress, and anyone who doesn’t kiss his behind, a Trump Presidency will help in ways beyond his management skills and policy positions. It’s the leadership skills, which means you DO talk to those who oppose a bill or plan, and find a way to get it done and WIN, ideally, when he does, he heaps praise on both D’s and R’s for working on behalf of the American people (once he’s nicely maneuvered them into doing so)

We will gain pride in our country and we know we will be able to compromise without feeling like we are compromising with the devil. Compromise means both sides win a little and both lose a little – and all the people are accessed for ideas and if they are good, they are judged on merit, not whether they have a R or a D behind them. This country used to be run by both sides to be sure that “right in the middle” was followed. We would like it back and TRUMP is skilled at winning. If you notice, TRUMP is generous is giving props even when his next line might not make that obvious. He always starts in saying something nice. Losers need to keep face and he allows them that.

        Is it just me or is Rubio’s ‘generational choice’ argument redundant? Obama already made that argument almost 8 years ago. If I were the other candidates I’d turn it around & say ‘Yes we do have a generational choice. We could continue by voting in another generation of inexperience or we could choose a more mature, experienced generation.’

    (Snippet from the article)
    Supreme Court Refusal Protects Illegal Immigrants’ “Right to Vote”

    The Kansas City Star provided the following summary of the facts of the case:

    The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled that Kansas cannot require proof-of-citizenship documents — almost always a birth certificate or passport — from prospective voters who register using a federal voter registration form. The court also said that a federal agency doesn’t have to alter the form to fit Kansas requirements.

    Arizona has a similar proof-of-citzenship requirement, and Kobach argued the case on behalf of both states in conjunction with Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett.

    In other words, individuals showing up to the polls in Arizona and Kansas can no longer be required to demonstrate proof of U.S. citizenship, opening the ballot box to illegal immigrants.

      I think one way to thwart illegals voting is use the US citizenship requirements……if you can not speak English, you can not vote. All voting ballots need to be in English only if they are not………..another way is have small signs placed a block away from the voting polls and these signs state in Spanish and Arabic to have their documents ready for inspection by INS, perhaps starting a rumor among the illegals (don’t know how that would be accomplished) of the same……INS will be inspecting documents at the polls….if the libs can play dirty, so can we.

        Dear Congressman Schweikert,
        With today’s refusal by the Supreme Court to hear the Kansas/Arizona voting registration issue, I must now ask myself does the Republican Party really ever intend to ever win a Federal Election?
        In short, to now register to vote in Arizona for a Federal Election I just have to say I am a Citizen?
        “The NVRA requires States to “accept and use” a uniform federal form to register voters for federal elections. 42 U. S. C. §1973gg–4(a)(1). That “Federal Form,” developed by the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC), requires only that an applicant affirm, under penalty of perjury, that he is a citizen.”

      With all that has been revealed lately by SD and the backstabbing votes in the McConnell and Boehner led congress….has anyone stopped to think for just a second that Rove’s plan worked flawlessly in 2012 and Romney was set up to lose? A good explanation why Rove, batting something like .080 in candidates his PAC supported, continues to get funded by major donors and has credibility with the insiders?

  18. Trump is vetting his Immigration and other plans ( tax ) to benefit the American Citizen. In the case of his tax plan, is hitting himself in the pocketbook. As an analyst, while he is a bit pushy, he could handle meetings with Putin and the like. Give Trump an american saddlebed, to put next to Putin;s dinky pony and ridiculous no shirt. Trump has seen every slick trick in negotiations, I so hope he gets the chance to stick it to the U.N. and the other BS types. It would be a hoot to see the panic— roaches to the light.

In this mans experience President Obama made it almost impossible for Syrian Christians to escape Syria but put Muslim immigrants on a fast track. That may be changing recently. If you find that information disturbing you don’t know the half of the behind the scene stories on how this President has been unsympathetic to the persecutions of Christians yet favorable to the interests of Islam.”

      and

      “His personal style is less bombastic than his platform and interviewing style. He was gracious, non confrontational and surprisingly open to “give and take.”

    Of course we knew that the MSM has been corrupt for decades. True journalism is almost extinct these days. Most of the NY-DC Beltway crowd is so drug & alcohol-addicted, sex-addicted, & PC addicted that they no longer are sober enough to rationally think! Boomers experienced a lot growing up following the Great generation, who fought in the Great War. Our kids (Gen X) begat the Millennials who have grown up in the PC world with all their devices and social networks. All Johnny’s & Janes get Blue ribbons for participation and no one has to think anymore. They have been indoctrinated to think that Big Gov. will handle the tough problems for them.

    I was watching this guy the other day who interviews folks off the streets with some tongue-in-cheek questions. The responses from the crowd under forty is unreal. So, this guy was asking folks about a fake Hillary program entitled , “White Privilege Tax” where white folks would pay a tax so that this revenue could be distributed to less fortunate folks. The responses weren’t funny but sad to me. Of course they all thought it was a GREAT program. This is the youth of San Diego, CA! The only sound waves in their brains are the crashing waves of the Pacific surf and the sacred smell of burning Tijuana weed. HA!

    Now I have not grown to old in my retirement that I have forgot my time growing up in the 60’s fun in the sun with sex, booze, cigs, dope, and WAR! Yet, it seems to me that we still respected a lot of things that are no longer politically correct today. Our President jumps on to politicize the gun laws before we even know what happened in Oregon. I read somewhere that 92% of these mass shootings occur in “GUN FREE ZONES” When I was in school as a kid you were allowed to say a prayer and salute the flag. Today, no more God in school and allegiance to anything AMERICAN is offensive to minorities. So, maybe if there is a Devil, he shows up at places where we have thrown out God, as a mentally disturbed perp who seeks to be exalted in the big time Media of the 21st century. In the old days the poor soul just committed suicide and we read about it in a local paper.

    Now, I read that an Appeals Court has upheld the rights of “ILLEGALS” to vote! WTF is going on in this country. I felt that in 2012 Romney had to win to reverse the path we were on. He really let us down. The past three years have worsened our rights to retain our individual liberties and the remaining year or so left of this Administration will put us on a greater free fall. The 2016 election is our LAST STAND. If the Dems control the WH again, bury your guns and hide your food. The GOVe of both parties are eliminating the middle and lower relegating us to a class to peasant class that will be dependent.

    WE CAN FIGHT BACK! Stand strong with COLD ANGER and work to beat the ELITE so that we can take back our country and our lives. Volunteer, talk to friends and family and do whatever you can to insure WE WIN in 2016. The Vulgarians must stay active. The Pundits are using the 4th arm of GOVT (media) to manipulate and direct the low information voter. They await for our anger to subside and our determination to fail. Never forget that Cold Anger is the smelling salts that the masses need to WAKEUP from the stupor in order to overthrow the NWO and the wealthy controlling Oligarchs. Continue to educate the less-informed and direct them to this family of Patriots at this most informative site in order to harden their resolve.

    Since no candidate is perfect, I can overlook certain things. Yet, my candidate has to be the strongest against Illegal Immigration and possess the will to secure our borders. No more Common Core, Obamacare, & Poor trade deals like TPP. They need to not hide behind the fear of Political Correctness, and they must stand for developing the strongest Military in the World while creating a Tax plan that will help middle and lower income folks. Bring back investment dollars to the US so that wealthy folks will find it worthwhile to create millions of new jobs for the best working class in the world. We need a candidate who just doesn’t talk but will to take care of the Vets when the need arises. Remember, they accepted the call to protect our freedom so that we could thrive in a safe country. More importantly, I want someone who Wins because he/she doesn’t owe favors or has been bought by lobbies, special interests or others. A person who will visibly sacrifice personal wealth and position for the LOVE of Country and the desire to serve their fellow Americans. While there are many other issues, the above serves as a minimum baseline for my vote.

    I support TRUMP up to this point since he best meets my criteria above.
    I will continue to watch him and hope that he doesn’t disappoint me or forces me to change my mind.

      They have been indoctrinated to think that Big Gov. will handle the tough problems for them.

      They need to learn that Big Gov (any government) = their taxes.

      I saw a really instructive “person in the street” segment a couple of years ago. They interviewed college kids on a college campus, and the point was to show how “redistributing the wealth” wasn’t fair. They found some kids who had mostly “A”s, and explained that there are kids who get “F”s and would flunk out. So the interviewer (the character he was playing) was trying to drum up support for the better students to give some of their points to the unfortunate failing students, and then they’d all get “C”s and pass. Without a second’s hesitation, every one of those kids said that wasn’t fair – not to them who had worked hard, and not to the slackers/not bright enough kids who were failing.

      I think the example you gave from a tv show wasn’t “real” enough to them – they haven’t yet had to support themselves or a family. College grades to college kids are “real” (of course, students who are failing would love the program). I think perhaps the questions have to be phrased in such a way that the example used is in that young person’s experience, so that they truly understand what the consequences would be.

      PS San Diego is HUGE and sprawling. Most kids aren’t beach bunnies. Now, will I further defend them and say they know US History, the Constitution, or that America is exceptional? Nope! I get graduate student interns who can’t spell or write at a middle school level. But at these students’ age (from the example), IMO that’s the fault of the parents and the school systems.

      I’m glad Trump is against Common Core. I remember reading an article a while back, which said that kids in those single-building schools in the old days (all ages together) knew the basics better than kids today. Sad. Instead of people justifying their paychecks by developing silly, centralized plans every so often, perhaps they need to study the past to see how students used to easily learn the basics…

        Yes my jaw dropped with that one! I understand his reasoning, but I would not of used the word wonderful connected with that. I think there were better ways to of answered that. So the question is why ?

        Now it will allow for a killer AD to be made, with someone who has lost their property to eminent domain and a cut to a clip of this. Big guy against the little guy etc.

        Thinking about this – if it was not a mistake i.e. he intended to answer it as he did. Then I am assuming that the counter to this would be – someone who did experience eminent domain but actually was delighted with the result i.e. their compensation etc. so you could do a Killer AD the other way and show how it may of improved someone’s lot in life etc.

        Also because he knows this would come up at some stage, then perhaps he wants to deal with this honestly, upfront, take the flak and deal with it head on. Risky, but then again, it will need to be dealt with at some stage so why not now ?

        I will give him 10 out of 10 for this though, whether you agree or disagree with eminent domain, you have to say this guy is probably one of the most honest people ever running for president. That is to his credit. He will not parse any question and just shoot straight from the hip.

        A KEY component in the use of Eminent Domain when not involving a public works project, but private development beneficial to the community/city, is the behavior of government officials involved. When Trump used it in AC he had all the parcels purchased, was ready to break ground. He also offered the owner of a non-HOA property 4x the going rate. The project aided the revitalization of AC and provided loads of jobs. In Kelo, Pfizer appears to have wanted to lock up river front land, prior to being on the brink of breaking ground. IOW, it seemed premature. I’d look to the local government officials on that one.

        Taking the train between DC & NYC is a real eye-opener. Especially in the Philly area, I’ve often wished there could be an Eminent Domain case to knock down those horrendous eyesore row houses along the railway. Originally built as lower end homes from 1890’s up to 1930’s with most toward the latter time, now, some look like they’re barely standing. Many/most are abandoned in some of the worst areas.

        I always thought Kelo was passed to pave the way for massive Urban renewal projects in blighted inner cities. Inner city RE is worth far, far more than many of the existing properties in blighted areas. E. D. would be required, although I thought Baltimore was close to doing the job on their own after the Freddy Gray case. If there were a requirement for x % of MPDU’s (moderately priced dwelling units) in the revitalization project it would be a win/win for all, especially when the existing architecture is unworthy of restoration.

              One problem here, though, was the workers. They used eminent domain to build yet another stadium, this one downtown. They took away a lot of the unsightly buildings, but they were inhabited by lower income workers who could walk to work. Downtown is mostly a service industry area. With gentrification downtown here, the new buildings are expensive, luxury high rise condos. Now the workers had to move much further outside the downtown area, they didn’t have cars, and now they had to spend so much time on buses just to get to their jobs. So, it wasn’t fair to them, and really, when an area has predominately low income service jobs, it really makes more sense IMO for them to be living nearby. There is already too much commuting in this town. I live 7 miles from work and it takes me 30 minutes on 3 freeways…. and I feel for people who have to spend a couple of precious hours each day on a bus, what a waste of time and life…. my .02

HE’S A BUILDER. and both the pipeline and the wall is going to require eminent domain procedures.

      Eminent domain is a familiar event for all of those hundreds of thousands of farmers who fill the center of this nation.

      They do not see eminent domain as an intransigent enemy: they have known for at least fifty years and more than when a new state highway is built, it has to go somewhere.

      They understood (in eastern Montana where I grew up – it was in the early 1950s) that electric power lines had to go somewhere.

      And telephone lines had to go somewhere.

      There was not a hysterical reaction to the prospect of eminent domain which was employed as the mechanism to prepare the ground for the good things that were comingt.

      The hysteria of recent years does not have to do primarily with eminent domain but with a few wretched examples of governmental over-reach when they unnecessarily made land grabs after being paid off by some high-powered locals who had their own purposes in mind.

      There’s no need for eminent domain to be considered, inherently, a curse and terrible thing. It’s not. Without it, there would always be one farmer in this county or one businessman in that city who could hold up a needed sewer system that would serve hundreds of thousands.

      I sure hope a few people are wise enough not to let the media use item after item from Donald Trump as hysteria triggers. Gotta be smarter than that.

Families, children and wives will simply not understand them tying up their holiday time being in 0-2% of the polls.

    I love the “lose our way to victory”! It gave me a real chuckle. I have been thinking about what the apostle Paul wrote about keeping your eye on the prize. We must not be shaken. We must keep our eye on the prize, making America great again. Trump is not perfect but he is the man for the job. We can’t get bogged down in negativity over small stuff. Keep on trucking guys. Wolverines! We have trolls who like to drop little negative tidbits and the next thing you know our thread has been hijacked and is off topic.

  37. ” The Donald ” has started a Populist Revolution, and all Revolutions have an inner momentum that surge and feed on themselves . With the right leader, Trump , they are unstoppable .
