POLITICS



Facebook will be the death of me. I have 28 notifications and don’t know how to get rid of them. Also a slew of
Facebook items excluding ads which take time to read.

There were some 50 emails that had to be sorted for ones of interest. Most are news related from the Times, USA Today, Washington Post and NBC news, not spam. Also some services such as Rasmussen.  If any one catches my fancy there is more time spent.

I usually delete my spam folder after a quick scan for something that should not be there.

You may be aware that last week Trump had a slight-2 points-lead over Clinton in some of the national poles.  However if electoral votes are taken into account he will bomb in November. The lesser of two evils will be elected. Biden why didn’t you run?

Of interest today was this from Rasmussen: The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Clinton with 43% support to Donald Trump’s 39%. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets nine percent (9%) of the vote, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein earns two percent (2%). Another two percent (2%) like some other “candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Last week, Trump edged ahead of Clinton 40% to 39%. It was the first time he had been in the lead since mid-July. The latest finding is Clinton’s best showing in a month, but the race remains a close one, within or just outside our survey’s +/- 3 margin of error for months”.

It continues: “The two are basically tied among voters not affiliated with either major party, a group Trump has led in for the past several weeks.

Johnson has the support of eight percent (8%) of Republicans, seven percent (7%) of Democrats and 13% of unaffiliateds. Green has no statistical support among GOP voters but wins the backing of one percent (1%) of Democrats and four percent (4%) of unaffiliated voters. “

Johnson of course made a great gaff Thursday morning when asked his opinion on Aleppo thought that it was an acronym not a place in Syria.
