Iowa poll: Trump 23, Carson 18; Clinton 37, Sanders 30

Featured image A brand new Bloomberg-Des Moines Register poll of likely Republican caucus-goers in Iowa finds Donald Trump in the lead with 23 percent. Ben Carson runs second with 18 percent. Carson is the second choice of 14 percent; Trump ranks second for 9 percent. In three polls taken earlier this month, Trump led Carson by an average margin of almost 8 points. Thus, Carson has gained on Trump. But Trump will »

Dem party leaders attacked for “rigging” the nomination process

Featured image It seemed like a good idea at the time. Hillary Clinton would be coronated by the Democrats, so there was no need for many debates. Keep the number of them low — six in total, with only four before the Iowa caucus — and thereby minimize the risk that Clinton will look bad before a large audience. It’s less clear now that this is a good idea. The many Democratic »

Hillary Doubles Down: Republicans Are Nazis, Too

Featured image So what happens when a politician says, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants”? Oh wait, the person who said that was Senator Hillary Clinton, to WABC Radio’s John Gambling in a 2003 interview. Whatever. Today Hillary trumped (heh) her suggestion yesterday that Republicans are the moral equivalent of Islamic terrorists by suggesting the GOP are Nazis too, because “some” on “the other side” want to round up illegal immigrants »

Clinton vs. Clinton?

Featured image Over at Commentary today Noah Rothman raises a great question: by tacking left to reflect the current center of gravity in the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton is essentially repudiating the policy orientation of her husband’s presidency: Does Hillary Clinton believe her husband’s presidency set the Democratic Party back? . . . Hillary Clinton has been compelled on a variety of occasions to renounce her husband’s greatest achievements. In the wake of »

Hillary: When You’ve Lost MSNBC. . .

Featured image Paul notes below the extremism of Hillary Clinton’s likening of Republicans to Islamic terrorists, but this morning MSNBC went off on Hillary. Money quote from Bloomberg reporter Mark Halperin: “If a Republican did this, the world would come to a halt.” Here’s the three-minute video: Keep in mind, however, the deep cynicism of the Clintons. By issuing this provocation, we’re not talking about her criminal actions over her emails today. Instead, we’re »

Live from Sioux City, it’s Hillary

Featured image Nebraska attorney Dave Begley continues his series on the appearances of presidential candidates in Iowa. Dave gave it up for Power Line readers this past Wednesday by looking in on Madam Hillary’s appearance in Sioux City, Iowa. Dave writes: Hillary interrupted her vacation to campaign in Iowa. I saw her at Morningside College in Sioux City. She spoke to about 275 people in the student center. The room was too »

Hillary Clinton’s laughable email defenses — a compendium

Featured image Hillary Clinton’s lines of defense in her email scandal are as manifold as the Hapsburg’s defenses during the siege of Vienna in 1683. Some of Vienna’s protective walls were rotten, but the city’s defenders managed to reinforce them at the last minute. The Ottomans, fierce and numerous though they were, found it tough going. Hillary’s defenses are much more easily overcome. Shannen Coffin demolishes them one-by-one in this piece for »

Family feud, candidates edition

Featured image What words represent the top choices that respondents associate with Hillary Clinton in the latest Quinnipiac poll (full results here)? Let’s play the Feud. Survey says the top three choices are “liar,” followed by “dishonest” and “untrustworthy.” This is one survey that represents the wisdom of crowds, at least as to Madam Hillary. I found this result a bit of a surprise: “bitch” was about as popular as “trustworthy.” Donald »

Who loves her, baby? [With Comment By John]

Featured image Yesterday John noted Hilary Clinton’s descent in the polls. “Voters can’t stand Hillary,” he opined. Who loves her? At NR, Brendan Bordelon takes a look at the released Hillary Clinton emails in the context of the current controversies. Brendan notes that the vast majority of the 3,500 e-mails released so far were sent or received by just four members of Clinton’s inner circle at State: Cheryl Mills, Bill Clinton’s lawyer »

Voters Can’t Stand Hillary

Featured image Everywhere you look, poll numbers on Hillary Clinton’s campaign are collapsing. This batch came out this morning from Rasmussen Reports. The headlined finding is that by 46% to 44%, voters say Hillary should suspend her campaign “until all of the legal questions about her use of the private e-mail server are resolved.” That is a rather silly question, since as a practical matter if Hillary suspends her campaign indefinitely, it »

What Hillary’s classified emails discussed

Featured image Sarah Westwood of the Washington Examiner reports that “Hillary Clinton’s classified emails contain discussions of conversations with foreign diplomats, issues with embassy security, and relations with countries from Russia to China.” Embassy security. I seem to recall hearing about this issue before. The issue arose in Clinton’s emails via a summary that Huma Abedin, Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff, forwarded to Clinton of a high-level 2009 meeting about “embassy »

Hillary warned audience that “hackers break into personal email accounts”

Featured image Attempting to defend her use of a private email server, Hillary Clinton has sought to minimize the obvious security risk that doing so posed. She describes her system as “effective and secure,” and notes that it was “on property guarded by the Secret Service.” Her campaign website proclaims: The security and integrity of her family’s electronic communications was taken seriously from the onset when it was first set up for »

What’s Happened to Liberalism in Two Sentences

Featured image The New York Times today carries a long news piece about the growing panic in Hillary world that has forced her to—gasp!—interrupt her Hamptons summer vacation to campaign among the plebes in the Midwest. Down near the bottom is this short paragraph, which I’m guessing no one at the Times flagged for being utterly hilarious—as well as revealing: Among the places where Mrs. Clinton enjoys stalwart support are the Hamptons, »

Clinton server contained “Born classified” information

Featured image Hillary Clinton’s current defense of the fact that, contrary to her initial defense, her email server contained classified information is that the information wasn’t “marked” classified at the time she received it. (Clinton apparently still denies sending classified information, period). The implication is that because the information wasn’t marked classified, it wasn’t classified, and therefore she did nothing problematic when she received it on a private server. The argument is »

Weekend at Bernie’s 2015

Featured image A source deep inside Investor’s Business Daily kindly advises that, as usual, Michael Ramirez hits it out of the park today (cartoon below). You can see with your own eyes that our source is unusually reliable. The cartoon is posted at IBD here. The cartoon brilliantly makes a point that John Hinderaker has made repeatedly on this site. »

Bad polling news for Hillary Clinton

Featured image The latest Quinnipiac poll is full of fascinating information, much of it unfavorable to Hillary Clinton. Among the highlights are: In Florida, Bush tops Clinton 49-38 percent; Rubio leads Clinton 51-39 percent; Trump leads her 43-41. In Ohio, Rubio leads Clinton 42-40, but Bush trails her 39-41 and Trump trails 38-43.
