Democrats unsure Hillary Clinton can beat Donald Trump in general election

Democratic Party activists are conflicted over whether Hillary Clinton can take on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the general election, with some fearing she provides too much ammunition for the flamboyant businessman’s style of attack.

While Mr. Trump is leading the national polls and calling the shots in what’s become a circuslike GOP primary season, Mrs. Clinton tops a sedentary Democratic race with two other opponents respectfully nipping at her without doing much damage — and party stalwarts are happy to have it that way.

“I hear a lot of people saying, ‘You know, I’ve watched the Democratic debates and the Republican debates, and they’re so different. I’m sure glad I’m on the Democratic side and they’re talking about the issues. They don’t always agree with one another, but they explain why,’” said David Allen, a Democratic Party leader in Barnstead, New Hampshire. “Democrats have resolved themselves to not go into a circus and tear one another down.”

    The Benghazi Blond wanted to control all communication and thought no one would have the guts to confront her for only having a server at her home and NO agency server used. The Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch, under Obama is staying silent, and the left propaganda machine NBC, etc. will not ask her if she’s going to press charges against Clinton. Sadly, it will probably not happen.

  • The GOP debates are still trying to eliminate the RINOS, but they keep hanging on by a thread, just wasting taxpayer money! Plus, the moderators are only asking simple, non-threatening questions at the DNC debates, while the GOP candidates are bombarded with outrageous, rude questions be the MSM dummies. Hillary cannot handle tough questioning for very long, without backup. Only ones worth voting for are Trump, Cruz, and Carson, the rest need to go back to their RINO feed trough! TRUMP 2016!

    The Liberal Moderators toss softball questions to the Democrats, while they purposely try to inflame the Republican debates with divisive questions made to try & cause arguments, which largely failed. They ignore most of Hillary’s scandals.

    How can Hillary govern from a cell at Leavenworth? If there is any justice left in this country, that’s where she’ll be when this all shakes out!

      The real question is, will Trump allow the FBI to freely and fully investigate the Clinton’s, allow the DOJ to demand records or take them by force, allow the AJ to do it’s job in charging, the courts to do their jobs in putting the two to trial, and if found guilty to allow the courts to sentence them, and not step in and give them a Presidential Pardon if elected of office?

        That does lead to real question, part two: Will the FBI also investigate Obama?
        If anyone believes this will ever happen, I’ll sell them my oceanfront condo in Springfield, MO.

      A cell, in ANY prison is what the woman needs. The problem is, you and I know that, BUT nobody in Washington has the cojones to make it happen.
      Here’s the proof: If Bush had done the things Obama has, he’d have been slam dunked in a matter of weeks. The yellow-bellied wimpy Republicans in D.C. allow their democratic counterparts to do as they please.

      Another thought: Ford lost his re-election bid and many still think it’s because he pardoned Nixon. If the Democrats in the Senate had been honest and convicted Clinton only to find that Gore pardoned him, you can rest assured Gore would have been re-elected.
