Despite an increasing lead over businessman Donald Trump in head-to-head matchups, presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is struggling to connect in some reliably blue states.
Washington Post authors Philip Rucker and John Wagner report that there’s concern among Clinton supporters who believe Trump might do well in three Rust Belt states: Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
“In Michigan, Pennsylvania and, to a lesser extent, Wisconsin, an affinity for Trump’s message of economic populism and nationalism has surprised many Democrats,” Rucker and Wagner wrote. “These are big, industrial states they have carried for the past three decades — and where Clinton, so far, has not fully focused.”
In Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump are in a statistical tie, according to RealClearPolitics polling averages. In Michigan, Trump closed the gap between the two candidates considerably once he became the GOP nominee, and now trails Clinton by just 4 points (though the last poll was taken at the end of May).

Clinton lost to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in Michigan and Wisconsin (but won Pennsylvania), so her team now believes he can be a help in the general election, given that his message on trade deals is closer to Trump’s than Clinton’s message has been in the past.
Even in swing states where Clinton’s campaign is more confident, the polls aren’t much better. Clinton leads Trump by 3.5 points in Florida and nearly 3 points in Ohio.
Still, Team Clinton doesn’t appear to believe there’s a real chance she could lose these states to Trump. Referring to Trump’s low favorability rating, Democratic pollster Mark Mellman told the Post that Trump was “looking at fantasy land if he thinks he can put places like California and Michigan into play.”
“Clinton aides express a steely confidence about all three states. They think the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next month will generate positive attention across Pennsylvania,” wrote Rucker and Wagner.
“In Michigan, they are doubtful that Trump could outperform Mitt Romney, who was born here and whose father was a popular governor. Romney lost to Obama by nearly 10 percentage points in 2012. And in Wisconsin, Clinton allies are heartened by the reservations many prominent conservatives there have voiced about Trump.”
you believe anything that is printed in the post? really it rivals the slime and is just pure demorat garbage. the book crisis in character should be good. I have two associates that were in the USSS and worked PDD duirng the clinton era of sex-drugs and more drugs with very little work. in DC there was another traffic lane from the wipe house to the Hyatt-the president suite was on a 2 min call for the whore dog billy and his company. It will be intestine to compare notes from the book and these two former employees.
Hillary Clinton says she made a mistake with the illegal installation of a “private” email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. She is definitely NOT a patriot; she tramples the Constitution of the United States and LIES every time she opens her mouth.
Fine. She is guilty as hell and to her I say, IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE.
Hillary Clinton is the Martha Stewart of government cheating.
Hillary Clinton can apologize to herself during the several years she will spend in federal prison.

I trust all is well with you and yours.
Just wanted to touch bases with you again. I’ve been waiting for some more devastating news as regards Hillary (Hell-ery) Rodham Clinton. And there is lots. She and Obama are being rightly accused currently for not doing anything to save the souls at the compound in Benghazi. There have also been found some more incriminating emails Hillary “deleted” and did not turn over to the FBI. The FBI has found many more emails that point to Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior while at the State Department. I say, she may be indicted very soon; and that may preclude her from running for office.
I heard someone on the radio (KFI) suggest that Hillary will not be indicted because Obama is involved in not enforcing the State Department policies against “personal” email servers, and that perhaps Obama emailed Hillary at her illegal email server, and that she is threatening to go public. But never mind this; what Hillary did is illegal and criminal. I say to her, “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE.”
No wonder Bernie is still hanging around. But I don’t think that Americans are ready to consider an outright Communist/Socialist for office and frankly, no offense to you and me, Bernie is too old. If you haven’t noticed he falls asleep at many rallies and needs to lean on the podium while going to and speaking.
Nowadays, most Americans are suspicious of all Muslims when they see them. Americans would do well to just stay away from Muslims. Almost all EU countries have said that they are sending back most of the Muslims that have come to Europe from Syria, Africa and other Muslim countries. They don’t want to diminish the character of their respective counties and customs. Angela Merkel should be thrown out of office immediately.
Here’s another highly important bit of information I did not know. Huma Mahmood Abedin, who serves as vice chairwoman of Clinton’s 2016 campaign for President, is a Muslim; listed religion: Islam. Who knew! Mahmood is a close consultant and advisor to Clinton. This along with the idea that Barak Huessein Obama is a Muslim as well would explain the fact that these radicals, liberals and traitors to America are always covering up for the Muslims. Note that most all of the Muslims in America don’t protest the radical Islamists; instead they celebrate the attacks on Americans; quietly without protesting.
We all need to vote to end this treason and sell-out of America to foreign interests. I’m voting for Donald J. Trump as a true American who cares about American tradition and values. I have the idea that Trump is going to “tear” Hillary Clinton apart during the debates; if she makes it that far, which I, at this time, doubt.
Also note that the news media (Liberal) keeps mentioning the latest poll numbers where Clinton is 2 points ahead of Trump. Be aware that the polls were taken before Brexit in the U.K. I would expect that polls now show that Obama has lost support as well as Clinton; and Trump, being right on, has increased dramatically his support in the polls. Trump is right, we must make America great again. No more apologies for being special and exceptional; Europeans are the most inventive people on the planet, along with those folks in northern parts of Europe. Those that protest European’s dominance in the world do so with their cellphones in hand and other European people’s inventions around them. It’s like farmers say, “Don’t criticize farmers with your mouth full”.
Let me know your ideas.
Until next time, take care and stay safe and healthy.
