L.A. Times Tracking Poll: Donald Trump Leading Hillary Clinton Again





Donald Trump’s polling numbers are ticking back up, according to the latest L.A. Times tracking poll.

Trump is now at 45.8 percent nationally in the poll, while Hillary Clinton is 44.5 percent, per the Times’ website. However, the sponsor of the poll — the Center for Economic and Social Research — seems to have interpreted the data differently and shows Trump with a slightly larger lead: 45.8 percent to Clinton’s 44.1.

The Republican presidential nominee’s numbers took a tumble after his first debate performance and leaked audio of lewd comments he made about women was released.

The USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Poll asks roughly 3000 American citizens each day about the presidential race in order to reflect the political pulse of the country. Results lag events by several days.

2 Investigators: Chicago Voters Cast Ballots From Beyond The Grave


By Pam Zekman

CHICAGO (CBS) — Susie Sallee was buried in 1998. Yet records show she voted in Chicago 12 years later.

Victor Crosswell died in 1994, but records show he’s voted six times since then.

And then there’s Floyd Stevens. Records show he’s voted 11 times since his death in 1993.

“It’s crazy,” Sharon Stevens Anderson, Stevens’ daughter, tells CBS 2’s Pam Zekman. “I don’t see how people can be able to do something like that and get away with it.”

Those are just a few of the cases CBS 2 Investigators found by merging Chicago Board of Election voter histories with the death master file from the Social Security Administration.

In all, the analysis showed 119 dead people have voted a total of 229 times in Chicago in the last decade.

Jim Allen, a city election board spokesman, says a majority of those dead voters were most likely clerical errors, involving family members with the same names and addresses.

“This is not the bad old days,” Allen says. “There are just a few instances here where a father came in for a son, or a neighbor was given the wrong ballot application and signed it.”

But in some cases, there was no clear explanation.

Let’s all Switch to Paper Ballots on Nov. 8!!

Editors Commentary: I have spoken to relatives of people in Texas who have experienced electronic voting machines switching their party line votes from Republican to Democrat. To be on the safe side, I would like to ask everyone to only use PAPER BALLOTS, which are much harder to tamper with.

The stakes this election are so high that this simple precaution is well worth remembering when you vote on Nov.8.

Gregg Jarrett: The perpetual cloud of dirt and scandal that hovers over Hillary Clinton




“Pig-Pen” and his perpetual cloud of dirt.

It follows him wherever he goes and engulfs whatever he does. The beleaguered character in the comic strip “Peanuts” cannot seem to rid himself of the dirt, despite his best efforts. At times, he seems oblivious to the cloud. Or in denial.

Remind you of Hillary Clinton? Metaphorically, that is.

The dirt cloud of scandal has followed Clinton incessantly for years. Not just a single, isolated scandal… but several. Travelgate, Whitewater, cattle futures, Benghazi, private email server, Clinton Foundation, Wall Street speeches, you name it.

It’s one ignominious incident after another. And all of them are of her own making.

Clinton tends to stretch the bounds of propriety, dangling her foot over the legal lines. And her actions beckon political calamity. Thus, the interminable cloud.

Trump Has 2-Point Edge in Bloomberg Politics Poll of Florida


In the U.S. Senate race, Republican incumbent Marco Rubio leads by 10 percentage points.

By: John McCormick

Donald Trump has a slim advantage in Florida as critical independent voters narrowly break his way in the must-win battleground state, a Bloomberg Politics poll shows.

The Republican presidential nominee has 45 percent to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s 43 percent among likely voters when third-party candidates are included, the poll found. In a hypothetical two-way race, Trump has 46 percent to Clinton’s 45 percent.

Among independents, Trump gets 43 percent to Clinton’s 41 percent in a head-to-head contest. When third-party candidates are included, Trump picks up 1 point with independents while Clinton drops to 37 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson taking 9 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein getting 5 percent.

“This race may come down to the independent vote,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer, who oversaw the survey.

“Right now, they tilt for Trump. By a narrow margin, they opted for Obama over Romney in 2012.”

Trump’s showing in this poll is stronger than in other recent surveys in the state. Clinton had an advantage of 3.1 percentage points in the RealClearPolitics Florida average on Tuesday.

President Barack Obama is campaigning to ensure that no one flees America because of a Donald Trump presidency, according to the White House.

During a gaggle with reporters Monday aboard Air Force One, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama would “spend a significant amount of time” campaigning for Hillary Clinton and other Democrats down the ballot next week.

Earnest also was asked whether Obama would leave the country if Trump, a man he has said is unfit to succeed him, is elected president.

“He’s working very hard to make sure that nobody has to leave the country as a result of an electoral outcome that the president doesn’t support,” Earnest said.

Obama spoke at a Clinton fundraiser in California with about 350 guests earlier Monday. He called for Trump to get crushed on Election Day.

“Make sure she wins big. Send a message about who we are as a people, send a clear message about what America stands for,” he said. “We want to win big. We want to win big. We don’t want to just eke it out — particularly when the other guy’s already starting to gripe about the game is rigged.”

For his part, Trump criticized Obama for campaigning against him so much.
“This guy, all he does is campaign. He ought to go back and try and get some jobs for our country,” Trump said at a rally in St. Augustine, Florida. “All he does is campaign. We have an incompetent president. We have a president that doesn’t know what he’s doing.”

Reince Priebus: Trump ‘is going to win



By Amber Phillips

The head of the Republican Party said Sunday that he thinks that — despite polls suggesting otherwise — Donald Trump will win the election. And he played down Trump’s controversial claim that the election is rigged, saying that Trump has the right to reserve his options.

“He is going to win,” Reince Priebus, the head of the Republican National Committee, told CBS’s John Dickerson on Sunday on “Face the Nation.” “Because I think people have had enough.”

But instead of pushing a message of change in Washington, Trump has been mired in controversy over the past week about whether he would accept the election’s results. Trump has said he would do so — if he wins. (Not to mention the threat Trump made Saturday to sue the 11 women who have accused him of groping or sexual assault.)

Dickerson asked Priebus whether he agrees with Trump’s refusal to say that he will accept the election results. Priebus, one of the highest-profile Republicans left defending Trump since House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.) broke with Trump, minimized the nominee’s “rigged” claims.

“What I think the media is missing here is that, to ask a candidate three weeks before the election if they are going to concede — asking for a concession speech — no one does that,” Priebus said. “And I think if . . . you lose by 200 votes in Florida, are you going to concede on election night if you’re at 260 electoral votes?”
