Dems fret over Trump bounce

by Alexander Bolton - The Hill  |  published on July 26, 2016

Democrats are alarmed over a cluster of new polls showing Donald Trump enjoying a healthy bounce in support after the Cleveland convention.

Worried Democrats say they thought some of the “dark” themes that Trump and his allies raised in Cleveland wouldn’t gain traction in modern-day America.

Yet a flurry of polls have suggested Trump is ahead, or in a dead heat with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Some Democrats can’t believe they are in a close race.

“It shouldn’t be this close. I don’t think there’s any question that the closeness of this race is cause for everybody to concern himself and recommit themselves to this campaign,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said Monday afternoon.

    The reason you have never seen a sitting President campaigning for their replacement is that they are remaining Presidential and they have work to do. The reason BO is breaking this tradition is twofold: (1) he has never understood the true, real work of the Presidency; and (2) he has to help her because the deal that Bill Clinton worked out was that Liar Hil would get POTUS and BO would get to start stinking up the Supreme Court with his liberal, illegal rhetoric.

    The democ rats do not realize that the people are tired of being shafted by the establishment, so we are going to give a businessman a chance to get our country back on track, if Trump does not have to fight congress for every decision he wants to make maybe he can eliminate some of the politicians that are drawing big paychecks and doing nothing but shuffling papers and some not even doing that

    I haven’t heard or read of any surprise or worry from Dems that Trump improved in the polls after the convention. It was to be expected. it’s normal. Now let’s see what happens after the Dem convention.

    I believe the herd has been getting more info or starting to search for more info because of the state of America and how bad it has gotten under the non-leadership of the muslim in the WH and the butcher of Benghazi..
    The people see the double standard as it was with the non-indictment of the hildabeast..The AG is as corrupt as the trash in the WH and state dept..

    Trump will rule in 2017, thank God and the good people of America..

    The Democrats will probably get a bounce after their convention is over. Both bounces will probably be gone by time the Olympics are over.

    Once we get past Labor Day Donald Trump needs to be prepared to carry the themes echoed at the Republican convention to the people. America can be better. America can be great again. In all fairness to President Obama, economically we are better off than we were on election day 2008, but we can do better. Much of the improvements have happened in spite of Obama rather than because of Obama.

    Oil fracking has caused the price of energy to plummet. Lower fuel prices have made it possible for Americans to spend their money elsewhere. It should be pointed out that President Obama has worked against inexpensive energy. His administration sought to saddle us with expensive alternate energy.

    The Dems at the top are shocked because they don’t have a clue about what’s really going on in America. Local Dems do have a clue and understand. The more you are bought off at the top, the less you understand or even care to understand because you have yours. Clintons have theirs already but there are no greedier bastards on the planet! Watch Clinton Cash, a brand new 1 hour movie for chapter, rhythm and verse. Well detailed for anyone but the feeders at the top.

      The leaders of both parties do not have a clue. The silent majority is awake and thoroughly pissed off. Retribution is coming in the vote and the young followers of Bernie are NOT partaking of the koolaid. The dem wit dems have grossly under estimated what BO and his fundamental destruction of this country and the eager participation in that agenda of the rinos have awoken. Applecarts of the dems and the rinos are due for the interesting disintegration that does seem to puzzle the establishments on both sides of the aisle.

      By now, the presumptive picks by all establishment “Leaders” are either out of the running as with the GOP or in line to get their ass handed to them in the election. Trump was picked by the people and so was Bernie, that should have been their best clue so far. They did not get it! So vote against Hillary and for a man who is running to defeat her and everything the arrogant narcissistic sociopath BO has done to this country over the last eight years. Time to hand the dems and the lousy rinos their grade card as in you are fired, and “NO” Hillary will not sit her fat ass in the oval office again ever.

      Finally e-mails that will have an effect. If we cannot get a conviction on her e-mails then let the future e-mails be her downfall. I for one am looking forward to more of these discoveries . She has set herself up above the law . I never remember a sitting President campaigning for a candidate . That is not suppose to happen, unless it turns out that a lot of Laws are due on notice, which has had the Pleasure of nominated individuals who feel they have been hand picked to excel above our Laws and shame our Country into a Lawless Nation that is only for the Chosen few in the inner circle who have been ordained as Blameless of any crime . Just investigated away until the statue of limitation is conflicting with their Presidential Campaign to do future damage to our Country and tell us , ” What difference at this point does it matter”.

      Not going to happen this time around, all elections should be held on one day only.

    • I Seigel

      Trump wins = election was fair and square
      Hillary wins = election was stolen
      Is that about right, SFB?

      • regulus30

        yip; but not in your twisted world.

        • I Seigel

          “yip; but not in your twisted world” What does that mean?

          So you think that only Trump could win a fair election, is that right? Any other conclusion would indicate fraud, is that right? In your twisted world?

          • regulus30

            wake up ; every election liberal voter fraud is proven; but I don’t expect someone like you to acknowledge the truth.

          • regulus30

            every election cycle liberal voter fraud is exposed and validated; you know that so quit acting stupid.
