    Trump gave a pretty good speech, I don't know how well it will play with the base but nonetheless he was sensical.

  4. (CNN)These presidential debates, which start Monday, will be like no others. The primary debates had more viewers than any in history, and featured trash talking, loud audience booing, candidates mocking each other, shouting matches, and body parts bragging. And those were just the Republicans. Todd Graham The Donald Trump/Hillary Clinton debates will be the Olympics of debate. Heck, if we're lucky, Leslie Jones can live-tweet these, too. (Slay all day Leslie!) Let's preview the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. Trump's strengths • Manipulating the moderators. Trump's been pretty outspoken about the possibility of unfair moderators. Why? Because debate moderators can be played, just like sports officials. Whenever my debate teams think we have judges predisposed against us, we subtly ask about their "philosophy" of judging and aim to find out how we can overcome their bias. In almost all circumstances, at the end of the debate, the judges vote for us because of overcorrection. They want so badly to appear fair that they end up being unfair to the other team. • Critic of status quo. Syria, Iraq, Libya, trade with China -- you name it and Trump will criticize it. He's a first-rate armchair quarterback. • Fear mongering. This actually works for a lot of people. Everything is "terrible" and "horrible," Trump says. Actually, theories of persuasion have been tested, and "fear of losing" something you already have is much more persuasive than appeals to gain something new you don't currently possess. • Personality. Trump can be both funny and charming. Hey, the Rubio water bottle bit still cracks me up. • Handling hostility. He's used to it. When the crowd booed him in the previous debates, he brushed aside the boo-birds like he was sweeping pigeons off the terrace of his penthouse. • Evading questions. Trump has several tactics for this. He provides general answers, ignores the question completely or turns it into an attack on his opponent by accusing them of the same thing. (It's the Pee-wee Herman response, "I know you are but what am I?") Finally, whenever pressed on some ridiculous claim, Trump uses his get-out-of-jail-free card is to respond with, "A lot of people say," and "I've heard many people." He simply brushes the question off like he would lint on his cashmere and then blames it on faceless "other people." Trump's weaknesses • Policy knowledge. This could be his undoing. Just read the latest challenge from Mark Cuban as proof that nobody thinks Trump understands policy. Cuban will give him $10 million if Trump will let Cuban grill him on policy positions for four hours. Ten. Million. Dollars. • Punishing format. Two candidates on stage and 90 minutes to fill. Saying "We don't win anymore" and "I'll make better deals" repeatedly should get tiresome pretty quickly in this format. • Thin skin. Trump doesn't like criticism of any kind. And he has a childish way of dealing with it by name-calling. If he loses his temper in the debate, as he has in the past, it will appear much worse when it's just the two of them up there. • Flip-flops and lies. Let's be real. Trump lies in debates more than anyone ... ever. You can look this up on any fact-checking website. My favorite: Sixty percent of claims that PolitiFact has checked have been rated false or pants-on-fire (outright lies) and under 3% of his claims have been rated as true! • Hubris. Trump honestly thinks he's won all the debates so far. I'm not making this up. This is a weakness if it has led him to conclude he doesn't need to do the kind of substantial preparation most candidates do. Clinton's strengths • Knowledge. Clinton simply knows her stuff about the economy, civil rights, Russian relations, the war on terror and other issues. You may not agree with her, but you won't think she's under-informed. • Future policy. This is where she can set herself apart from Trump. She can speak articulately about the direction we should take, as a country, in the future. Trump's forte is criticizing the past. Clinton's is pointing toward the future. • Ability to draw sharp contrasts. Clinton has been solid, even in the primary debates, at delineating the differences between her proposals and his. • Attitude. I know people think she's too robotic and stiff, and that's a weakness. However, in several debates, Clinton's approach has been more relaxed, calm, and she even seems to enjoy the debates with a conversational quality. Clinton's weaknesses • Her personality. In these debates, people want to see a "real" person. That means personality and feelings. Joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness were all part of Riley's emotions in "Inside Out," the Pixar movie. Well heck, if a cartoon character has emotions, why can't Clinton? • Long-winded. She never finishes her answer on time, and she runs over the dinging timer, runs through the buzzer in the background, runs past the moderator's attempts to start up again, and I think she even ran over my neighbor's dog while she was at it. These long-winded answers, as if to grandmother's house we go, serve her poorly. You can't get to the "big finish" of your answer if you're being talked over and sirens are blaring. She needs to get to the point sooner. • Evasive answers. Do you remember when she said Wall Street gave her contributions because of 9/11? Or in the next debate, same question, Clinton said that she got less money from Wall Street than from teachers. These didn't pass the smell test. She's got to do better.

  9. Poll conducted June 30 to July 11 UPDATED 8:37 AM EDT Jul 13, 2016 Darren McCollester/Scott Eisen/Getty WASHINGTON (CNN) —Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now running neck-and-neck in Florida, as well as Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University survey that took stock of three swing states. The poll marks an 11-point difference from a month ago in the Sunshine State. Now, Trump leads Clinton 42 percent to 39 percent, within the margin of error; a month ago Clinton led 47 percent to 39 percent. With third-party candidates included, Trump's edge extends to five points, 41 percent to 36 percent. In the two other states polled, Ohio and Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump are in as tight a race as other pollsters have documented. They are tied at 41 percent each in Ohio, and Trump leads by two points, 43 percent to 41 percent, in Pennsylvania. All of those leads are within the margin of error: 3.1 percentage points in Florida and Pennsylvania, and 3.2 percentage points in Ohio. Much of the change in this poll stems from a steep drop in Clinton's support among non-whites in Florida compared with the last poll and a decline in support among men. The poll also showed a drop in voters' perception of her character. "While there is no definite link between Clinton's drop in Florida and the U.S. Justice Department decision not to prosecute her for her handling of emails, she has lost ground to Trump on questions which measure moral standards and honesty," said Peter Brown, who ran the poll. The poll, which was conducted from June 30 to July 11, surveyed 1,015 voters in Florida, 955 in Ohio and 982 in Pennsylvania.
  10. Source: Trump will likely make announcement on Friday Alex Wong/Getty Images/CNN INDIANAPOLIS (CNN) —As anticipation builds for Donald Trump to name his vice presidential pick, two hopefuls -- Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich -- appear to be the front-runners, according to a person familiar with the deliberations. Trump will likely make the announcement on Friday, the source said. Pence spent part of his day lavishing praise on the presumptive GOP nominee, comparing him to Ronald Reagan and using the phrase "make America great again" Tuesday afternoon when he spoke with reporters after an event in Indianapolis. "I think he is someone who has connected with everyday Americans like no one since Ronald Reagan," Pence said. "I think he has spoken into the frustration and the longings of the American people as no one since the 40th president, and I think you're going to continue to see him do that." Pence faces an important audition Tuesday night, the source familiar with the process said, appearing alongside Trump at a fundraiser in downtown Indianapolis and then a public rally in nearby Westfield. "It feels like Pence. But (Trump) likely wants to see the reaction tonight," a separate source familiar with the selection process told CNN, adding that when it comes to timing: "It would not be tonight unless Trump is like the guy with the engagement ring burning a hole in his pocket who takes the opportunity while the jumbotron is on at the arena." Pence and Trump had a private, one-on-one conversation at the fundraiser, according to a source who was there said. The Indiana governor and former congressman has already passed one important hurdle, the source said: "(The) Pence vet was completely clean and that mattered. No one needs an extra hassle." But Pence isn't the only VP prospect making headlines: Fox News said Tuesday it is suspending Gingrich's contract since the former speaker is also on Trump's vice presidential short list. Some of Gingrich's allies have been "heavily lobbying" the campaign, one of the source's told CNN. "Clearly Gov. Pence is deeply in the running, (New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie) is. I've been part of the process. We'll see what happens over the next two to three days. It's a little like 'Apprentice' -- you see in a few days who the last one standing is," Gingrich said. Pence and his wife Karen met with Donald and Melania Trump at Trump's golf course in New Jersey early this month -- a meeting Pence brought up Tuesday. "I will tell you that we've been honored to spend some time with Mr. and Mrs. Trump," he said. "We were very moved by how gracious and kind they were to our family. And I think he is going to be a great president." Former rival turned supporter Ben Carson told CNN's Erin Burnett Trump won't be making a rash decision -- but it also could bring the unexpected. "Well, I think that one of the things that you've seen throughout this whole process is that Donald Trump is unpredictable. He's going to be careful, he's going to be very, very deliberate," he said on Tuesday night.
  11. I can understand that Trump isn't a traditional Republican candidate, but do the republicans really want to help Hillary win the White house by not uniting behind their canadiate?
  12. (CNN)The political arm of the National Rifle Association released a new ad Wednesday focusing on Hillary Clinton and features a survivor of the Benghazi attack criticizing the former secretary of state. The ad stars Mark Geist, a Marine Corps veteran who provided security services in Benghazi, discussing the 2012 attacks. "Hillary as president? No thanks," Geist says. "I served in Benghazi. My friends didn't make it. They did their part. Do yours," he continues, as the words "Trump 2016" appear on screen. The story was first reported by USA Today. The Clinton campaign did not respond to CNN requests for comment. Jennifer Baker, Director of Public Affairs for the NRA's lobbying arm, confirmed to CNN that the ad is backed by a $2 million buy and will air in battleground states such as Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, in addition to the second congressional district of Maine, which splits its electoral votes. Benghazi panel caps 2-year probe: No bombshell, faults administration It is the largest pro-Trump ad buy from an outside group during the campaign so far. In the ad, Geist also seems to speak directly to disaffected Republicans who could be upset with Trump being the GOP nominee. He notes, "a lot of people say they're not going to vote this November because their candidate didn't win." Over video of graves Arlington National Cemetery, he adds, "Well, I know some other people who won't be voting this year either." Paid for by the NRA Political Victory Fund, the ad does not directly address the 2nd Amendment or gun control efforts. The release of the spot coincides with House Republicans and Democrats this week releasing dueling reports on the Benghazi attacks, after two years spent investigating their cause and examining the government's response.

  14. Not that they believe either presidential candidate has cornered the market on honesty, more likely voters believe that Republican Donald Trump is "more honest" than Democrat Hillary Clinton. Rasmussen Reports on Wednesday said that 30 percent believe Trump "is more honest than most other politicians." When it comes for Clinton, said the pollster, "Just half as many — 15 percent — think Clinton is more honest than most of her peers." The honesty gap for Clinton is evident even among Democrats. For example, only 27 percent believe Clinton is more honest than other politicians. But 50 percent of Republicans believe Trump is more honest than other politicians. Stay abreast of the latest developments from nation's capital and beyond with curated News Alerts from the Washington Examiner news desk and delivered to your inbox. Overall, more than four in 10 likely voters polled believe both Clinton and Trump are less honest than most other politicians. Clinton has been dogged by trust and honest issues, which flared anew last week when she was hit again on her email scandal.

  15. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump's best ally in winning over skeptical Republicans is turning out to be Hillary Clinton. Having overcome a multimillion-dollar "Never Trump" campaign aimed at blocking him from the Republican nomination, he's now benefiting from a wave of GOP donors, party leaders, voters and conservative groups that are uniting under a new banner: "Never Hillary." "Nothing unites Republicans better than a Clinton," says Scott Reed, a political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who has advised previous GOP campaigns. While Reed says there remain "many unknowns" about Trump, he adds that "the knowns about Hillary are very powerful motivators to Republicans." Thanks to Republicans' deep disdain for the likely Democratic nominee, Trump is piling up those kinds of lukewarm GOP endorsements. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who called Trump a dangerous "con artist" during his own failed presidential campaign, now says he's willing to help the presumptive GOP nominee in the general election. And he cites Clinton as his main motivation. "If you can live with a Clinton presidency for 4 years, that's your right," Rubio wrote on Twitter Friday. "I can't and will do what I can to prevent it." "Never Hillary" graced the subject line of a new Republican National Committee fundraising email that had nary a mention of Trump. Super PACs advised by Trump-skeptic Karl Rove are using the hashtag "NeverHillary" on Twitter to promote online videos about her perceived scandals - even as Rove says the groups aren't likely to spend money boosting Trump. Last week when the National Rifle Association endorsed Trump, the announcement came without much of a sales pitch for him. But it did include a blunt message for the 5 million members about Clinton. Noting the heated GOP primary campaign, Chris Cox, the NRA's chief lobbyist, said at the organization's convention last week, "Were there differences between candidates for the nomination? Of course. Are there valid arguments in favor or some over others? Sure. Will any of it matter if Hillary Clinton wins in November? Not one bit." For the NRA and other Republican-leaning groups, Clinton has become a reason to look past Trump's spotty record on conservative issues. On guns, for example, Trump previously backed an assault weapons ban. He's since backed away from that, which appears to be good enough compared to Clinton's calls for tougher gun control laws. "If she could, Hillary would ban every gun, destroy every magazine, run an entire national security industry right into the ground and put your name on a government registration list," NRA chief Wayne LaPierre told the crowd at the gathering in Louisville, Kentucky. Likewise, Clinton has been an entry point for big donors once not thrilled with - or even downright hostile to - Trump. Billionaire Minnesota broadcasting executive Stanley Hubbard helped pay for the Never Trump campaign, but says he's willing to give money to the GOP nominee to stop Clinton. Trump has unclear policies on some of the issues most important to conservative donors. Even so, Foster Friess, who backed Rick Santorum in his last two presidential campaigns, said he has made a donation to Trump because "the choice is stark." In an email, he contrasted Clinton's possible Supreme Court picks with Trump's, as well as their approaches to economic and immigration policies. Sheldon Adelson, a billionaire casino executive whose top issue is the protection of Israel, urged reluctant Republican Jews to unite behind Trump. "Like many of you, I do not agree with him on every issue. However, I will not sit idly by and let Hillary Clinton become the next president," he wrote in an email to fellow board members of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Clinton has served as a call-to-arms for some of the top fundraisers for Trump's vanquished rivals, helping him quickly assemble an experienced finance team from scratch. Some Republican voters, too, are finding that unease with Clinton is a good enough reason to back Trump. Margaret Lee, a 66-year-old from Clayton, North Carolina, said that while the former reality TV star may not have been her first choice, she'll vote for anybody but Clinton. "Hillary Clinton is not being held accountable," Lee said of Clinton's use of private emails as secretary of state. "The fact that she's going to be the Democratic nominee having this hanging over her head, I just can't understand that." In Pennsylvania, Lori Clifton said she's deeply frustrated by the prospect of an election face-off between Trump and Clinton. Clifton, a 51-year-old from the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, isn't a Trump fan. But as a reliable Republican voter in presidential elections, she said, "What choice do I have? I really don't trust Hillary Clinton." Alison Scott, a 36-year-old from Apex, North Carolina, also has concerns about Trump's demeanor, saying he often "doesn't seem very presidential." But with Clinton as the only alternative, she said her decision is simple. "If I had to pick one of those," Scott said, "I'd vote for Trump."
