“Mr. Trump Will Bring An End To These Attacks, Because Unlike Obama And Clinton, He Believes We’re In More Than A Fight About ‘Narratives’ – These Terrorists Pose An Existential Threat To Our Country And Our Values And They Must Be Destroyed Before They Can Harm Any More Of Our Citizens.” – Jason Miller

“Last weekend’s attacks, which are just the latest to be carried out on U.S. soil on President Obama's watch, should be a wakeup call for every American. It is highly disturbing and entirely unacceptable that 858 immigrants from dangerous countries have slipped into our country and been granted full U.S. citizenship because of the failed policies supported by President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Even worse, Clinton must explain her reckless support for a 550% increase in Syrian refugees and her push for an all-out open border policy, which will put even more Americans at risk. The threat from radical Islamic terrorism has only grown under Obama and Clinton, and ISIS has greatly expanded the number of countries where it is fully operational. Our enemies neither fear nor respect Hillary Clinton, and as a nation, that is dangerous, and it is disgraceful. Mr. Trump will bring an end to these attacks, because unlike Obama and Clinton, he believes we’re in more than a fight about ‘narratives’ – these terrorists pose an existential threat to our country and our values and they must be destroyed before they can harm any more of our citizens.”— Jason Miller, Senior Communications Advisor

New Mexico Poll: Trumps Leads Clinton 43% to 38%

"Republican nominee for president Donald Trump opened up a five point lead with New Mexico and its five electoral votes, according to the 141 likely voters in the Reuters/Ipsos poll released Saturday.
Trump has the support of 43 percent of likely voters compared to 38 percent for his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the poll executed between Aug. 26 and Sept. 15.

Based on the poll results, Reuters moved New Mexico into the Trump column with a “Low Confidence” in its “States of the Nation” webpage that tracks the state polls together with an Electoral College map.

The New York City businessman was in a virtual tie with Clinton in the Morning Consult poll released Sept. 8 with 35 percent to her 36 percent. In that poll it was former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, running as a Libertarian, 14 percent and Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein, 3 percent.

In 2012, President Barack Obama won New Mexico with 53 percent of the vote. Republican candidate W. Mitt Romney garnered 43 percent of the vote and Johnson received 4 percent of the vote.

Obama also won the state in 2008 and the state went for President George W. Bush in 2004 and Vice President Albert Gore Jr., in 2000."

Donald Trump now leading in new Colorado polls 43-41

THORNTON — Sonja Smith on Tuesday knocked on a door in this key election territory and posed the question facing all voters this year.
Do you want the next president to continue Barack Obama’s policies or do you want change?
Before the Republican Party volunteer even finished her line, Ken Maestas had the answer. “No! No! Change direction,” the retired police officer said with conviction. “I’m all for changing.”
More voters are beginning to agree with Maestas, as evidenced by Donald Trump’s rising stock in Colorado. The latest polls show the Republican closing the gap with Hillary Clinton in a state where Democrats felt so confident that they diverted millions in television advertising to other battlegrounds.
A Reuters/Ipsos survey released this week gave Trump a narrow edge in a two-way race, 43 percent to 41 percent — his first lead in Colorado in the 2016 election. It follows two other recent polls showing the presidential race as a dead heat or within 5 percentage points.

Trump, Pence to visit flood-ravaged Louisiana capital Friday

  • Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.
  • Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.
  • Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana "a state that is very, very special to me."

  • "Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this," Trump said, "I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours."

  • Earlier Thursday, the Baton Rouge Advocate called on President Barack Obama to cut short his Martha's Vineyard vacation and visit the affected area. 
  • "The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking," an editorial said. "It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to [Hurricane Katrina] in 2005, a chapter of history no one should ever repeat."
  • In response, a senior White House official cited Louisiana Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, a Republican with a history of criticizing the Obama administration. 
  • "FEMA has been on the ground, and has really done a good job thus far through this disaster," Nungesser told National Public Radio. "There's been a huge change since Katrina in the response, in wanting to get people on the ground."

LA Times Tracking Poll: Clinton 44 Percent, Trump 43.4 Percent

18 Aug 2016

The LA Times daily tracking poll shows the race between 
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump too close to call.
  • The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times "Daybreak" poll tracks about 3,000 eligible voters until election day, asking on a regular basis about their support for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or other candidates as well as their likelihood of actually casting a ballot.
  • We update the data each day based on the weighted average of poll responses over the previous week. That means results have less volatility than some other polls, but also means the poll lags somewhat in responding to major events in the campaign. More about the poll.

Clinton is at 44 percent while Trump is at 43.4 percent as of Aug. 18. The results are based on 2,500 respondents.
Trump has made up ground as he was roughly five points behind Clinton as of Aug. 14, 46.3 percent to 41.6 percent.
