Political Roundup for November 4th, 2016…The mess after the election?…RRH Elections

This is the final weekend before election day, which is a good time to remind you that regardless of who wins on Tuesday we will have to spend the next four years either dealing with stories about investigation into Hillary Clinton’s negligent handling of classified government information and pay to play donations to her “charitable” Foundation or stories about women Donald Trump sexually harassed, financial fraud allegations against him and a myriad of other shady business and tax dealing he’s engaged in over the years. Good work America!

President:

Trump: Porn watchers like Donald Trump. Trump won porn site RedTube’s presidential poll 52% to 46%. Who could have guessed that guys who like to watch p***y prefer a candidate who likes to grab p***y!

Cruz: Ted Cruz’s conscience allows him to campaign for Donald Trump in Iowa. THIS is who Ted Cruz really is.

Johnson: Reason takes a look at how Gary Johnson’s vote total will effect Libertarian Party ballot access. 0.5% of the vote will get them access in Michigan and New Mexico for 2018. 1% will get full ballot access in in Kansas, Maryland, Nevada, and Wisconsin in 2018 and 2018 and 2020 access in Oregon. In Connecticut 1% will get their Presidential candidate ballot access in 2020. 2% gets the Libertarian Party full ballot access in 2018 in Iowa. 2.5% gets full ballot access for 2018 in Oklahoma. 7,500 votes gets 2018 access in Washington D.C. 3% gets 2018 ballot access in Arkansas, Idaho, and Massachusetts. 3% would have earned the party ballot access in Ohio for 2018 and 2020 but since Johnson is listed on ballot as an Independent and not a Libertarian it is not relevant. 5% gets full ballot access for 2018 in North Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas and for 2018 and 2020 in Arizona, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Rhode Island, and Washington state. Finally these 13 states give third parties no special ballot access benefits no matter how well their presidential candidate does; California, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Red State Gathering…Where do Conservative’s go after Trump loses?

A look at this year’s gathering of Conservative ‘s at the Red State blogs get together….

Conservative Republicans have had a rough 2016…..

What do they do about Donald Trump?

Who is NOT THEIR GUY…..

For rank-and-file conservatives, the question was to join a rebellion or to join a possibly losing campaign for the White House. “I’m playing for the team,” said Alex Iscoe, 21, an activist who wore the lone “Make America Great Again” cap at the conference. “If the team doesn’t win, we get four more years of Obama, basically — or worse.”

All weekend, the fact that the presidential election was between Trump and Clinton hung in the air like a foul odor. The conference was sponsored by a constellation of groups, such as the Charles Koch Institute and the millennial-focused Generation Opportunity, which had long ago switched from electioneering to advocating for free-market reform. In a glitchy series of pre­recorded videos, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) pivoted from a question about 2016 to a question about what he had learned from his 2012 vice-presidential run.

“The single greatest threat to national security is sitting in the Oval Office,” John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said at the end of a long indictment of the Obama administration’s foreign policy. “The second-greatest threat is coming right behind him, unless things change dramatically.”

Darryl Glenn, the Republican who is seeking to unseat Sen. Michael F. Bennet (D-Colo.) in November, blamed the news media for the idea that “everything’s negative out there.” After Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) equivocated on whether Trump could win the state — the real estate mogul trails by double digits — an audience member excitedly grabbed a microphone to remind him that “they said you couldn’t win your race, either.”

Few of the conservatives who had come to Denver were so optimistic. Steve Deace, an influential Iowa radio host who had endorsed Cruz for president, predicted that Trump would lose and then stick around to continue hurting the conservative movement.

“He’s going to get months of free media when he loses,” Deace said. “He will not go away.” Deace argued that Trump will have to kiss up to the “liberal elites whose approval he craves, and he will do it by attacking all of us.”

Cruz did not attend the conference, telling organizers that he previously committed to a family vacation. But the 45-year-old senator’s political future was never far from the RedState discussion. Asked about Cruz’s speech at the Republican National Convention, at which he was heckled for refusing to endorse Trump, Beck said he had called to thank him for doing it. Cruz, he said, had acted in the tradition of Charles Sumner, the anti-slavery senator beaten with a cane by pro-slavery Democrats, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor who returned home from America to oppose the Nazis.

“I don’t see myself spending the next 30 years to rebuild the party,” she said. “I know that Cruz is gearing up Carly Fiorina to run for party chair. That’s a brilliant move. But in order to that, you have to roll all those RNC members, and we’ve seen how that goes.”

Is Ted Cruz is laying his ground work for 2020 by running Carly Fiorina to replace Reince Preibus as RNC head?

The Republican party Civil War continues unabated….

RedState on why Some Socail Conservative’s will NOT vote for Trump…Ever…

Trump’s New GOP Cheers Homosexuality And Boos God. I’m Done.

 The RNC Convention has turned out to be pretty much the Star Wars bar scene that a lot of us thought it would be. It was totalitarianism on parade. The convention of the party that defeated Soviet communism… yes, Democrats, during the last decade of the Cold War your party might as well as have had an open alliance with the USSR… threatened dissenting delegates with physical violence. Parliamentary procedures that were worthy of a typical Third World sh** hole potemkin legislature were used to ram through rules that ensure the Republican party remained an oligarchy.

But it wasn’t the abuses of power that was the final straw. It was the repudiation of the founding principles of the nation and everything the GOP has told us it stands for that is the most stunning achievement of the past week.

In the early days of the Republic, John Adams famously wrote, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” The logic was clear. Without a firm grounding in Christianity and the morality that springs from Christianity, the US Constitution simply can’t work. That common language has to exist in the electorate otherwise we descend rapidly into a society where we are governed by out base instincts not by our better angels. The Democrats fell here years ago, adopting sexual license and perversion and covetousness of the wealth accrued by others as planks of their party platform.

Now the GOP is there…..

Anti-Trump Delegate group gets shutdown by RNC….

…from the Hill….

The Republican National Committee ignored an outcry from angry delegates on the GOP convention’s first day and adopted the convention’s rules by a voice vote.

The move prompted an eruption from the crowd, with people chanting “roll call vote” and yelling “point of order.”

To counter those efforts, delegate operatives for presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump, adorned in neon-green hats, led chants of “Trump!” and “USA!” to drown out the protesters.
“I have never seen anything like this,” said Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), a close ally of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a rival to Trump during the primary season.

“There is no precedent for this,” Lee said.

The outcry came at a Republican National Convention where differences in the GOP over Trump were at the forefront…..

Anti-Trump Nomination efforts begin to seriously organize…

Donald Trump HAS the party nomination NUMBERS…

But is not the offical nominee yet….

The party dlegetates need to vote on that….

I don’t think the Anti-Trump people can pull off derailing his nomination….

But I DO Think their efforts HAVE caught Trump’s attention…

About 1,000 Republicans nationwide participated in a conference call Sunday night discussing the effort to prevent Donald Trump from getting the Republican presidential nomination at the party’s convention next month, according to organizers.

The figure would represent a sharp rise from the roughly three dozen people who were said to have taken part in a similar call last week, according to CNN. News outlets were unable to independently confirm the number of people on the call.

An organizer estimated that about 250 of the people on the latest call were delegates to the Republican convention.

Republicans wary of nominating Trump are looking to change convention rules, allowing delegates to become unbound. They want rules that would allow delegates to vote for which ever candidate the like, instead of in line with results of state caucuses and primaries….

Trump is still fighting Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz?

Donald Trump is telling people that the guys he beat in the primaries are not being nice to him?

Seriously?

There IS something wrong with Trump….

He’s gone out his way to step ALL over the Republicans, stealing their party in broad daylight from them…

Does he think they would be happy about it?

Did he think they would just away?

So much for Party ‘Unity, eh?’….

Donald Trump voiced annoyance Saturday at continued resistance to his presumptive presidential nomination from some Republicans as he accused former Florida governor Jeb Bush of trying to undermine his candidacy and appeared to take aim at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

“We are going to beat Hillary. And it would be helpful if the Republicans could help us a little bit,” said Trump. “You know? Okay? Just a little bit.”

After complaining in general terms about talk of a “revolt” against him, Trump later suggested that Bush was involved in an opposing “movement” and that another well-known Republican was also plotting against him….

Note….

It isn’t just the two guys Trump is annoyed at…

Along with House GOP Speaker Paul Ryan…

The leadership of the Republican Party is quietly working to set up THEIR plans to operate after a Trump loss come November, which they believe is inevitable…..

Trump’s dream of having the party heads fall in line with him is simply NOT gonna happen…

There are mention’s of endorsement….But those mentions are really not worth a nickel…

GOPer’s getting ready for 2020…Life AFTER Donald Trump….

Most high level Republicans these days believe that Donald Trump will NOT be elected President….

They now have to figure out HOW they will salvage their party for 2020….

That AFTER some have to carry Trump on their backs….

It’s June 2016. Time to think about the 2020 election.
The 2016 GOP convention is still weeks away, but would-be contenders — from Ted Cruz to Tom Cotton — are already laying groundwork for the next Republican presidential primary. While some are lining up blue-chip staff, scheduling trips to early primary states and setting up political action committees, others are huddling with the party’s biggest financiers.

But they’re all struggling with the same conundrum: how to get around Donald Trump.

It’s a complex calculation. Whether they choose to support Trump or to oppose him — or something in between — future Republican candidates could find themselves explaining their decision for years to come.

The pitfalls are obvious: Throw your support to Trump, and be tied to him. Buck him, and risk turning off his supporters.

“Trump will have a very negative impact on our brand, and what potential candidates do regarding Trump could impact them in the 2020 general election,” said Jason Roe, a veteran Republican strategist who advised Marco Rubio during this year’s primary. “On the other hand, not getting behind Trump will hurt them in the 2020 primary. It’s a tough spot for our party and those candidates.”

Can we talk about the GOP for 2020?

Republican Conservatives are in grief…..

Donald Trump is gonna be the nominee….

Ted Cruz has given up…..

So while Trump does his sidewalk act going on?

The above are quietly setting up plans for what they will do AFTER Trump loses to Clinton….

The main thing will be NOT let another nomination’ Trump’ happen for sure….

Conservatives, still reeling over the looming nomination of Donald Trump, are pushing new Republican primary rules that might have prevented the mogul’s victory in the first place: shutting out independents and Democrats from helping to pick the GOP nominee.

Trump romped in “open primaries” where non-Republicans voted by the thousands and may have influenced the outcome — especially in early states that set the tone of the entire race. Trump’s most successful rival, Ted Cruz, thrived in states with closed primaries where only Republicans were permitted to participate.
Story Continued Below

Now, Cruz’s allies — hundreds of supportive convention delegates that he helped elect — hope to use the national convention in Cleveland to shove states toward closing their open primaries. And if they’re successful, it will not only go a long way toward warding off a Trump-like candidacy, it will tilt the primary toward conservative candidates in 2020 and beyond.

The advocates are finding a sympathetic ear at the very top of the party. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has long supported closed primaries, but has never had a constituency to back him on it. “I believe that only Republicans should vote in Republican primaries,” he said Friday at a Politico Playbook breakfast event, though he added that he respects the right of states to set their own primary rules.

For the conservatives, Trump’s path through the Republican primary is proof that the system needs to change….

Clinton vs Trump…She starts with a good size advantage….

The Electoral College State map works very much to her favor right out of box against a Donald Trump GOP nominee….(For Ted Cruz it would be even better for Clinton)…..

Trump has worked hard to piss off vast blocks of voters (non-white) that have supported President Obama TWICE in his election runs….

One would assume that we could add a good amount of women to Hillary Clinton’s numbers and you really do NOT see HOW Donald Trump could possibly win the Presidency….

But as will be repeated over and over again?

Donald Trump, the performer, IS a Wild Card…

Politico reported Monday on a Florida poll conducted for a business group in the state that shows Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump by 13 points and Ted Cruz by nine.

Why is that important? Because if Clinton wins Florida and carries the 19 states (plus D.C.) that have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in each of the last six elections, she will be the 45th president. It’s that simple.

Here’s the underlying math. If Clinton wins the 19 states (and D.C.) that every Democratic nominee has won from 1992 to 2012, she has 242 electoral votes. Add Florida’s 29 and you get 271. Game over.

The Republican map – whether with Trump, Cruz or the ideal Republican nominee (Paul Ryan?) as the standard-bearer – is decidedly less friendly. There are 13 states that have gone for the GOP presidential nominee in each of the last six elections. But they only total 102 electorate votes. That means the eventual nominee has to find, at least, 168 more electoral votes to get to 270. Which is a hell of a lot harder than finding 28 electoral votes.

While his dismal numbers among women and Hispanics, to name two groups, don’t help matters and could – in a worst-case scenario – put states like Arizona and even Utah in play for Democrats, the map problems that face the GOP have very, very little to do with Trump or even Cruz.

Instead they are, largely, demographic problems centered on the GOP’s inability to win any large swath of non-white voters…..

There is a quiet thought that has been reoccuring in the media (Conservtive  and General Political Media) that some Conservatives and other Rep[ublican’s are gonna sit back and let Trump get ran over so that they can reclaim their party back …..

Hillary Clinton winning speech April 16, 20016…for Pennslyvania, Maryland and Delaware Primaries…

Hillary Clinton made a speech that moved to praise her opponent Bernie Sanders….

She thanked voters for their support …..

Then went down the list of Sanders points and said she agreed with his views in general…Then turned to the direction of the whoever would the Republican nomiee and pointed out that she needed the party to be united in her efforts going forward….

Hillary Clinton won primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware Tuesday, while Bernie Sanders scored a win in Rhode Island. Connecticut’s Democratic primary has not been called.
With the victories in Pennsylvania and Maryland, Clinton claimed the night’s biggest prizes.

The results follow a week in which the two campaigns dueled over the state of the race, with Clinton’s camp presenting her nomination as inevitable and Sanders insisting the contest was still in full swing.

Clinton’s Tuesday night appearance demonstrated that her pivot to the general election is fully underway. She took a conciliatory tone toward Sanders and appealed for party unity in her victory address.

“There’s much more that unites us than divides us,” Clinton said, before reciting a list of policy priorities she and Sanders share. “In an election we will have to work hard together to prevail against candidates from the other side.”

She also directly went after Donald Trump, calling him a divisive candidate and ripping his rhetoric and policies.

Despite the lack of resolution, Clinton is increasingly turning her focus toward Trump, who’s poised for another big night Tuesday in his bid to clinch the Republican nomination.

Clinton unveiled a new line of attack against him on Monday, mocking his lavish lifestyle and accusing him of indifference to problems of non-billionaires, such as the national minimum wage.

“Don’t just fly that big jet in and land it, go make a big speech and insult everybody you can think of and then go back, get on that big jet, and go back to, you know, your country club house in Florida or your penthouse in New York,” Clinton said at an event in Delaware.
Clinton didn’t spare Ted Cruz, either.

“When you hear Trump and Cruz and the Republicans talking about their economic policies, they want to go back to what failed us before,” Clinton said, after praising her husband’s economic plans as president. “They talk a good game, but if you look at what they are actually putting out, they want to slash taxes on the wealthy.”

Donald Trump is helping Democrats sign up Latino’s…

Trump’s anti-Latino rants early on to get GOP Primary votes are NOT being forgotten by Latino’s…

Anti-Trump sentiment is making Latinos more eager to vote in 2016, according to a poll released Thursday.

America’s Voice and Latino Decisions found that 48 percent of registered-voter Hispanics are more enthusiastic to cast ballots in 2016 than they were in 2012. Of that group, 41 percent attributed their enthusiasm to Donald Trump’s presence in the race.

“There’s a feeling that the Latino community is under attack, and we’re seeing that reflected in voting preferences and unfavorables toward the Republican Party. In fact, the GOP is helping to make Latino political identity more cohesive,” said Sylvia Manzano, principal of Latino Decisions.
The desire to stop Trump was by far the strongest motivating factor to vote, followed by support of Hillary Clinton, at 16 percent, and support of Bernie Sanders, at 13 percent.

Support for and opposition to Ted Cruz both registered at 3 percent.

Immigration policies had a large effect on voters’ approval of specific candidates and their parties….

2016 New York Democratic/GOP Presidential Primary Open Thread….

People?

This isn’t gonna be a long night…..

If the Polling is anywhere near right ?

Expect early call for Hillary Cliton in the Democratic Presidential Primary…..

This is Clinton’s home state these days…..

She has been the US Senator for 8 years….

She lives North of New York City….

She has the solid support of older minorities and the party regulars…Of the 44 Super Delegegates in the state ? Clinton has 40 lined up for her…

Bernie Sanders was born in Brooklyn…But left there to become a politican in Vermont ….Decades later he is back in Brooklyn looking for votes…His stregth in support is the cities young….Mostly white, but with young blacks and browns thrown in….

But their numbers are much smaller than the old timers….

In addtion, in New York ONLY registered Democrats can vote in the primary, so a LOT of those young people at Sanders rallies cannot vote for him…

You’d think the Bernie Sanders would carry the entire Jewish vote in New York?

Not so ….

Sanders has created a split inn the Jewish community by embracing a view that Israeli should start talking about a two state peace deal with the Arabs, Something MOST Jewish voters are NOT receotive to….

In the polling  in the last week has Hillary Clinton is at least +10% to +16% AHEAD of Bernie Sanders (Except for One poll out today which has her +6%)….Even Sanders has taken to saying’ So What?’ about her projected win….

Prediction….Hillary Clinton beats Bernie Sanders by +10%

For the Republicans ?

It’s Donald Trump ALL the way….

This has been a easy one for Trump…

He lives in Manhattan …..

New Yorkers are well aware of Trumps entertaining act and most Republican here can live with it….

Ted Cruz has NOT helped himself by knocking the New York types in th media and is actually running third in most of the NY GOP polls….

Cruz is working on denying Trump the full 95 GOP delegates by working small GOP delegates arae’s in Staten Island and the Bronx …

John  Kasich should come in second in the state….

Prediction …Donald Trump by +20%….Kasich Second and Ted Cruz coming in Third….

Romney and Paul Ryan STILL don’t beat Hillary Clinton….Poll…

In the newest Public Policy Polling national poll…..

Hillary Clinton/Sanders tops out Romney/Ryan, both who have been mentioned as GOP ‘go to guys’ in place of Donald Trump or Ted Cruz….

PPP’s newest national poll finds that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan wouldn’t exactly be the solution to the GOP’s Donald Trump problem, with Romney doing even worse head to head against Hillary Clinton than Trump does.

Clinton (48/41) and Bernie Sanders (48/40) each lead Trump by solid margins, and have more modest leads over Ted Cruz as well (45/42 for Clinton, 48/41 for Sanders). Clinton (45/41) and Sanders (44/41) would each trail John Kasich. We find that a generic Democrat would lead a generic Republican for President 45/43 so when it comes to match ups against Clinton, Cruz essentially is the generic Republican with Trump being 5 points worse and Kasich being 6 points better. Much is made of Trump’s unpopularity nationally and he certainly is unpopular- a 29/63 favorability rating- but Cruz isn’t much better off at 30/58. Kasich’s 41/39 rating makes him the only candidate in either party on positive ground.

There’s been a lot of talk about Republicans possibly nominating Romney or Ryan at a contested convention, but both under perform a generic Republican candidate. Romney is incredibly unpopular nationally now- his 23/65 favorability rating is even worse than the 29/63 Trump comes in at. Clinton (45/32) and Sanders (48/31) each lead Romney by double digit margins. Ryan would trail Clinton 44/39 and Sanders 45/38, numbers not terribly dissimilar to how Trump polls against each of them. It’s not clear Romney or Ryan would do much to save the party this year.

There’s been talk about Rick Perry as a potential independent candidate for President to give the #NeverTrump people somewhere to go if he wins the nomination. Perry gets 12% as an independent….

Trump says he won’t back the GOP Nominee?…AGAIN?

How many times has he gone back and forth on this?

He doesn’t care about what he pledged to do with Reince Preibus the Republican National Committee head….

Donald Trump has rescinded his pledge to support the Republican nominee for president.

Asked during a CNN town hall Tuesday whether he stood by the pledge — which he signed in September after meeting with party chairman Reince Priebus — Trump said: “No, I don’t.”

“We’ll see who it is,” he told moderator Anderson Cooper.
Trump said he had been treated “unfairly” by the Republican National Committee and the GOP establishment. He said he was unsure whether the Republican establishment is plotting to take the nomination away from him during the upcoming convention in Cleveland.

He also said he didn’t need Ted Cruz to promise to support him should Trump win the nomination.

“I’m not asking for his support,” Trump said.

Congressman Whose Parents Were Held In Japanese Internment Camps speaks up in Congress against Muslim targeting…

The Republican line that is asking for across the board closing the door  on enetering…. spying on…. and patrols targeting  Muslims in America is being pushed back by an Japanse -American US House member whos parents where held by THIS COUNTRY in an interment camp…..

Something this country apolgized to his parents for doing and promised  to never do again…

A congressman whose parents were placed in Japanese internment camps during World War II was stunned to hear Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s suggestion that the U.S. spy on Muslim neighborhoods.

“Responding to Brussels [terror attacks] by advocating for patrols of Muslim neighborhoods or suggesting that we torture our enemies is not only counterproductive, it violates the moral code that separates us from our enemies,” Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) said.

He compared today’s Islamophobia to the way his family was treated during the Second World War. Over 100,000 people of Japanese descent, mostly U.S. citizens, were taken from their homes and placed in so-called relocation centers. When the late President Ronald Reagan signed a bill that formally apologized and provided reparations for the incarcerations, he called it “a sad chapter in American history.”

“Seventy years ago, my parents and grandparents were held prisoner during World War II without trial and without a reason other than their Japanese heritage,” Takano said. “In that moment, no one was willing to speak up for them. We cannot ignore the lessons of history.”

In the wake of Tuesday’s bombings in Brussels, Cruz called for a crackdown on Muslims communities…..

After action report on Last Nights Primary/Caucus votes in Arizona, Utah and Idaho ….

The leaders got their main target delegates and increased their overall dlegate totals…

Those behind in the counts got wins…..But made no dents in the leaders quest for the nomination of their parties….

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton scored easy victories Tuesday in Arizona, the largest and most-watched of the day’s three electoral contests.

Clinton’s roughly 20-point victory came despite voting glitches that appeared to affect Democratic voters more acutely than Republicans, who had submitted mail-in ballots at a higher rate than Democrats. The large margin is a blow to her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, who had staked a comeback on Arizona.

Trump won by a decisive 24 percentage points over his nearest competitor, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). But Cruz defeated Trump in Utah and took all of the state’s 40 Republican delegates after winning more than 50 percent of the vote.

“Thank you, Arizona!” Trump tweeted soon after the state was called for him, adding a series of hashtags to his post: #Trump2016, #WesternTuesday and #TrumpTrain.

Sanders won handily in Utah and Idaho, but that may have done little to improve his overall standing in delegates against Clinton. Idaho’s caucusing could not begin until everyone who had gotten into line by 7 p.m. local time had entered, prompting many caucuses to start late. The state Democratic Party used its Twitter account, @idahodems, to urge voters to stay in line.

In Utah, many Republican and Democratic caucuses started much later than scheduled as long lines of voters waited to get inside. The state Democratic Party’s website crashed due to high traffic, according to the Associated Press.

The primaries and caucuses came against a backdrop of terror,….
