Clinton: Clinton erroneously declared that some prominent Democrats had endorsed her when they hadn’t. This notably included San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor, and doesn’t exactly instill confidence in the supposed A+ Clinton Campaign team.
National Polls: We have couple of them today, so here’s a quick summary. CNN has Trump and Carson at 27% and 22% with no one else above 8%, Monmouth has Trump at 28% to Carson’s 18% and Cruz’s 10%, and Emerson (Excel Link) has Trump at 32% to Carson’s 18% and Rubio’s 13.5% with no undecideds.
New Hampshire: PPP has polls of both primary elections here. Clinton is up 41-33 on Sanders for the Democrats, and Trump is up with 28%. Notably, Rubio comes in second place with 12%, with Carson, Kasich, Bush, Fiorina, and Cruz all following closely behind.
PA-General: PPP polled the Keystone state, and found Clinton leading roughly half of the GOP field and trailing the other half. She loses to Carson, Christie, Rubio, Trump, and Fiorina, while beating Kasich, Cruz, Bush, Santorum, and Huckabee. We could be doing worse.
Trump: The Trump Campaign is surprisingly cash-poor. His campaign has little cash-on-hand and has incurred a surprisingly large amount of debt, leading to him having an effectively negative account balance at the start of the 4th quarter. Naturally this could be fixed with a single big donation from Trump himself, but so far he seems happy coasting on all of his free media rather than running a more traditional campaign.
Webb: The Republican-turned Democrat is dropping out of the race. His hundreds of national supporters will be a big help to either Martin O’Malley or Lincoln Chafee in their fight for 3rd place…..
