New polls show Hillary Clinton crushing Donald Trump.

Courtesy of Bloomberg: 

Share on Democrat Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead nationally over Republican Donald Trump, whose negatives remain unusually high for a presidential candidate amid early indications that the Orlando terrorist attack has had little direct impact on the 2016 race. 

A new Bloomberg Politics national poll shows Clinton leading Trump 49 percent to 37 percent among likely voters in November's election, with 55 percent of those polled saying they could never vote for the real-estate developer and TV personality.

 Perhaps even more telling is the fact that Donald Trump is apparently losing the support of his own party:

The Republican Party’s last nominee for president, Mitt Romney, hosted a gathering of hundreds of Republican conservatives in Park City, Utah, devoted to assailing his successor, Donald Trump. Romney’s former running mate, Paul Ryan, the once-revered speaker of the House, was grilled for supporting the candidate whose recent remarks the speaker himself called “a textbook case of racism.” In another speech, a recent GOP nominee for governor of California—Meg Whitman—explicitly compared the nominee to Hitler and Mussolini. 

What was so remarkable about these and other acerbic remarks made at Romney’s gathering of GOP donors and business people was that they came from inside the party Trump will soon lead into battle. And they stem from doubts not about Trump’s policies, but about his fundamental fitness for the office. Dan Senor, former Romney adviser and Bush White House national security aide, even said that Trump’s comments about Obama suggest “there should be serious concern” about sharing classified information with Trump—information presidential nominees regularly receive. 

And then there is this:
And this:


So let me remind you all again that it does not pay to be cocky, and that if we do not show up to the polls none of this early good news will make a bit of difference.

But we have the opportunity my friends to be involved in the most historic election in modern times.

Not only will we elect the first female President in this country's history, but that vote will also cause one of our two primary political parties to completely reassess who they are, and force them to either evolve or die.

If the Republican party cannot find success by pandering to the most conservative among them, then what choice do they have but to move towards the middle and become more centrist?

There is a progressive wave in this country, and with the unwitting help of Donald J. Trump we may finally see it wash away the ugliest parts of who we are as a nation.

      Idiots is the perfect word for them. They are too misinformed to know how cretinous they are being. A steady diet of RW propaganda combined with mediocre critical thinking skills has produced these knuckle-draggers who vote against their self interest. Another characteristic of this group of misanthropes is an exaggerated sense of victimhood, an eagerness to place blame on the 'others', a belief in wild conspiracy theories, and the need for an authority to tell them what reality is. They are the most limited among us. They are prime candidates for an Idiocracy.

    British Petroleum.

    Todd Palin spent nearly 20 years as an employee in the Arctic oil fields of the North Slope. He received training from the multinational British Petroleum starting in 1989. British Petroleum was involved in the gas pipeline negotiations with his Sarah's administration before she quit.

    Todd worked hard at moonlighting.

    Republican Senators Are Running Away From Reporters To Avoid Talking About Trump

    Trump is so toxic that Republican Senators are going into hiding to avoid answering questions about the GOP nominee. Republicans think that they will be able to separate themselves from their party’s nominee if they refuse to talk about him, or even better just don’t ever take questions. But there is nowhere to run. Republicans have nowhere to hide. Donald Trump is their nominee, and there is no escape.

    Amid a push to tighten gun laws in America following the gruesome slaughter in Orlando this past weekend, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered tough words for the gun lobby and mocking ones for her GOP opponent.

    In a Wednesday interview with The Huffington Post, Clinton argued that she and others had essentially forced Donald Trump to consider legislation that would prevent those on the terrorist watch list from being able to buy firearms. Trump said earlier in the day that he planned to meet with the National Rifle Association to discuss its opposition to the proposal.

    “Welcome to the cause,” said Clinton. “This is something I’ve been talking about for the long time. Look, the NRA and the other gun lobby members should be moving rapidly to work with Congress on this legislation. I know members of Congress, hopefully on both sides of the aisle, are beginning to look to see if they can pass this. And I fully support it.”

      From what I've seen, Donald Jr and Eric are arrogant assholes much like their father. They've both taken part in some potentially illegal and rather controversial big game hunting and posed for pictures with animals they've killed, including elephants and leopards.

      Ivanka seems to be very close to her father and a top member of his business empire so she obviously supports his questionable tactics.

      You don't hear much about the two younger kids, but they all seem to have taken advantage of and enjoyed the lavish lifestyle they've been raised in.

      People outside of the NYC area may be new to Trump's disgusting personality traits, but he's always been the same repulsive waste of oxygen. None of them have distanced themselves from Trump or his campaign, so I am guessing they think what he's doing is just fine.
