Latest 2016 Presidential Polls – 28 August 2015 Edition

The 2016 Presidential Election staggers forward – the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) clown bus complete with its 17 occupants and pseudo-fascist driver is trying to find some degree of sanity but is failing because Donald Trump continues to lead in the polls, appealing to the worse parts of human nature, and finding room in the GOTP.

decision 2016

Where are things as we slink slowly into September of 2015?

Nationally, the “Joker” of the GOTP clowns – “The Donald” – continues holding on to the top spot in the polls in spite of all his outlandish comments.

A Quinnipiac Poll, conducted by telephone of “registered voters” from August 20 to 25, 2015 has the GOTP Clown Bus lining up thus:

Donald Trump still ahead at 28%
Ben Carson 12%
Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz 7%
Scott Walker 6%
Carly Fiorina and John Kasich 5%
Chris Christie 4%
Mike Huckabee 3%
Rand Paul 2%
Rick Perry and Rick Santorum 1%
Bobby Jindal and Lindsey Graham 0%

In a CNN/ORC Poll, conducted by telephone of “registered voters” from August 13 to 16, 2015:

Trump 24%
Bush 13%
Carson 9%
Rubio and Walker 8%
Paul 6%
Fiorina, Cruz and Kasich 5%
Huckabee 4%
Christie 3%
Perry 2%
Santorum 1%
Jindal and Graham strong at 0%

In a Fox News Poll, conducted by telephone of “registered voters” from August 11 to 13, 2015:

Trump leads at 25%
Carson 12%
Cruz 10%
Bush 9%
Walker and Huckabee sit at 6%
Fiorina 5%
Rubio and Kasich 4%
Christie and Paul 3%
Perry, Santorum and Jindal 1%
Graham 0%

Lastly, in a Rasmussen Poll, conducted by telephone of “registered voters” from August 9 to August 10, 2015 the Clown Parade is as follows:

Trump leads at 17%
Bush and Rubio 10%
Walker and Fiorina 9%
Carson 8%
Cruz 7%
Paul, Kasich and Christie 4%
Huckabee 3%
Perry, Santorum, Jindal and Graham 1%

On the Democratic side, the Quinnipiac Poll has:

Hillary Clinton 45%
Bernie Sanders 22%
Vice-President Joe Biden 18%
Martin O’Malley 1%
Jim Webb 1%
Lincoln Chafee 0%

The CNN/ORC Poll has:

Clinton still way out in front with 47%
Sanders at 29%
Biden 14%
O’Malley 2%
Webb 1%
Chafee 0%

Fox News has the Democratic race:

Clinton 49%
Sanders 30%
Biden 10%
Webb and O’Malley 1%
Chafee 0%

According to the Quinnipiac Poll, if the General Election was today:

Clinton 45/Trump 41
Clinton 44/Rubio 43
Clinton 42/Bush 40

The poll ignored all other challengers

According to the CNN/ORC Poll, if the General Election was today:

Clinton 53/Fiorina 43
Clinton 52/Bush 43
Clinton 52/Walker 46
Clinton 51/Trump 45

The poll did not ask voters about a match-up between Clinton and Rubio, Paul, Cruz, Carson, Christie, Huckabee, Kasich, Perry, Santorum, Jindal or Graham.

According to recent polling data available, if the election was today Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States, and the others would still be footnotes in history books.

Of note, according to the Quinnipiac poll, “Note to Biden: They like you, they really like you, or they like you more than the others.

“If he is sitting on the fence, his scores in the matchups and his favorability ratings may compel him to say, ‘Let’s do this.’”

“Matchups among all American voters show: Biden tops Trump 48 – 40 percent. He beats Bush 45 – 39 percent and gets 44 percent to Rubio’s 41 percent.

“Clinton edges Trump 45 – 41 percent. She gets 42 percent to Bush’s 40 percent and gets 44 percent to Rubio’s 43 percent.

“Sanders edges Trump 44 – 41 percent and edges Bush 43 – 39 percent. Rubio gets 41 percent to Sanders’ 40 percent.”

Note to Republicans, according to Quinnipiac, “If Trump runs as a third party candidate, Clinton gets 40 percent, with 24 percent each for Bush and Trump.”

Pope Ricky declares ObamaCare “A Sin in the Catholic Church”

It appears Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential runner-up John Rick Santorum has declared himself Pope, and according to the Huffington Post has declared to Catholics that supporting ObamaCare is an abomination in the eyes of the Catholic Church.

“We have a president who, for the first time in American history, is directly assaulting the First Amendment and freedom of religion,” Pope Ricky declared, presumably referring to the provision in the President’s Health Care Act requiring most employers to offer insurance covering contraception. “He is going to tell you what to do in the practice of your faith. He is forcing business people right now to do things that are against their conscience that they will have to — if you’re a Catholic — you’ll have to go to confession … to confess that you are complying with a government program that is a sin in the Catholic Church.”

Of course this worn out argument claiming President Barack Obama’s forcing Catholics to violate their faith by paying for birth control, is the commonest GOTP talking point, almost as common as is Pope Ricky.

Data shows somewhere around 98 percent of Catholic women who have had sex and who could have children are using – or have used – some form of birth control, and we’re not talking the “rhythm method”, all against the teachings of the church.

And from a purely hypocritical standard, many Catholic universities, including Wheaton College, which are suing the Obama Administration over the new law, were already covering contraception before the law was announced. But now the big bad government will be forcing them to do something they were already doing so it’s against their rights?

Everyone with an ounce of intelligence already knows, and understands, Churches are exempt from the new health care law’s contraception rule and any entirely and faith-based organizations claiming moral opposition are offered an accommodation in which the third-party insurance company, not the organization itself, absorbs the cost of the contraceptive coverage.

But of course who ever accused Pope Ricky of having an ounce of intelligence or of being able to understand complex laws? If we were to take Santorum’s logic to its logical conclusion then clearly supporting vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s budget would also be a sin in the Catholic Church. Especially since his budget slashes assistance programs for the poor in order to financially offset tax cuts for the wealthy. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has already lambasted Ryan’s budget and a network of nuns has organized a bus tour to protest the budget, saying that it “doesn’t pass the moral test.”

“Catholic teaching is based on solidarity,” Sister Simone Campbell, leader of the bus tour, told the Daily Beast. “Ryan doesn’t understand that all decisions need to be made with the common good in mind.”

It would appear Pope Ricky also doesn’t understand Sister.
