That ‘rape’ smear lasted all of about 30 seconds – a new record. The Daily Beast tried to accuse The Donald of raping his ex-wife, Ivana, years ago. She came forward and said the charge had no merit and they were the best of friends. Nice try Leftists… and I bet somewhere behind that charge, if you dig deep enough, is a RINO with a grey beard. Now, the good ole boys of the GOP are wetting themselves because the race is getting real with Trump having a double digit lead over their anointed candidate, Jeb Bush. I am sooo loving this! I don’t know how this will play out, but this is the most fun I’ve had in the political arena in years. The RINOs are stampeding in a panic and The Donald is mounting a full-scale assault on the presidential race for 2016. He’s leaving the bodies of corrupt bureaucrats in his wake. Must see TV, folks. More popcorn, please.
From the Daily Mail:
The Donald is marching his improbable presidential campaign fonward in New Hampshire, capturing nearly one-quarter of the Republican primary vote in the latest poll – and doubling up Jeb Bush’s showing in a state he was once expected to dominate.
The Monmouth University Poll released Tuesday morning puts the billionaire Trump at 24 per cent among likely Republican primary voters. Bush, the former Florida governor, has 12 per cent.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are tied for third place at 7 per cent, but Walker is the second choice of 10 per cent, putting him in better shape.
Including second choices, Trump was picked by 32 per cent of those polled, compared with 22 per cent for Bush and 17 per cent for Walker.
About 14 per cent said they were undecided about who they would vote for if the Granite State’s GOP primary were held today.
The New Hampshire poll from Monmouth, while limited to New Hampshire, mirrors numbers seen nationally.
The top ten candidates in an average of the five national polls published by 5:00 p.m. on August 4 will be invited to participate in the party’s first debate two days later in Cleveland, Ohio.
Trump’s support continues to grow, drawing jeers from Democrats and generating discomfort inside the Republican National Committee.
‘The Republicans are afraid to say anything against him because they will be saying things against themselves,’ Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday in an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal.
‘They are afraid of him, obviously because he is speaking for the Republican Party.’
‘Everything he said is just like they believe,’ reid said dismissively. ‘So how are they going to criticize him?’
Party insiders, too, are getting antsy.
‘Where does this end up? Who knows?’ a Republican National Committeeman who asked to remain anonymous told DailyMail.com. ‘Every phone call, every conference call, every email – it’s all about Trump, Trump, Trump.’
‘Either this guy is going to be the second coming of Ronald Reagan or he’s a Manchurian candidate from the left who’s been sent to sink us.’
‘Ask me in January which one it is,’ he said.
For now, though, Monmouth University Polling Institute director Patrick Murray says ‘the Trump steamroller’ doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
Fallout from a Daily Beast story Monday night threatened to be the silver bullet Democrats had been looking for, but its energy quickly scattered by mid-morning Tuesday.
The story recounted decades-old allegations from Trump’s ex-wife Ivana in which she claimed he had sexually forced himself on her in a single episode during their marriage.
In a statement to DailyMail.com and other media outlets, the former Mrs. Trump said that the story was all wrong.
‘I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald,’ her statement read.
‘The story is totally without merit.’
‘Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised 3 children that we love and are very proud of,’ she added.
‘I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president.’
But first he’ll have to get through a bruising primary and caucus season that is just getting underway. Monmouth’s polling numbers, though, suggest he has a little-reported edge.
New Hampshire has an ‘open’ primary system that allows undeclared voters to participate in either party primary.
‘Trump does better among registered independents and new voters (29%) likely to go to the polls in February than he does among already registered Republicans (21%),’ according to Monmouth.
The biggest loser from Trump’s New Hampshire energy seems to be New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
He was named by the most Granite Staters as a candidate they have met personally, but it hasn’t translated into real support.
‘Despite spending much of his time there, Christie does much better as a second choice rather than the first pick in New Hampshire,’ Murray said.
‘It seems that Trump has stolen the New Jersey governor’s “telling it like it is” thunder.’
The poll was conducted by telephone from July 23 to 26, and sampled 467 New Hampshire voters who said they are likely to vote in the Republican presidential primary. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 per cent.
It would seem that Trump is pulling a Reagan. He not only appeals to Republicans, but Democrats and Independents. Actually, I don’t think these polls are correct. If I had to guess and the polls were honest, you would see Trump in the lead followed by Ted Cruz and then Carly Fiorina. Right now they are manipulated to make the RINOs look as good as possible, but no one believes their numbers. And Christie? Seriously? What a joke. The debates should be electrifying. Trump and Cruz will simply clear the floor and Fiorina will finish them off. The Republicans will have no choice but to endorse Trump if he builds on his current lead. If they don’t, they’ll have a full scale revolt on their hands and they’ll be toast. I’m enjoying the hell out of this… how about you?
