Latest 2016 Presidential Polls – 20 April 2015 Edition

The 2016 Presidential Election season rolls on, and the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) clown car spins and swerves from one fantastic tale to another while former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is driving her “Scooby Mobile” into New Hampshire this week.

Where are things in these early moments of the 2016 campaign?

Nationally, a CNN/ORC poll of voters describing themselves as “republicans” or “independents who lean republican” conducted 16-19 April 2015, has former Florida Governor Jeb Bush leading the group of GOTP candidates and likely candidates. Jeb Bush 17%, Scott Walker 12%, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio 11%, Mike Huckabee 9%, Ted Cruz 7%, Ben Carson and Chris Christie 4%, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum 3%, while Bobby Jindal and John Kasich 2%.

On the Democratic side, a CNN/ORC poll of voters describing themselves as “Democrat” or “independents who lean Democrat” conducted 16-19 April 2015, has Clinton in a commanding lead of undeclared candidates with 69%, followed by Joe Biden 11%, Bernie Sanders 5%, Jim Webb 3% Martin O’Malley at 1%.

How do things stack up if the General Election was today? The same CNN/ORC poll has Hillary Clinton beating all GOTP comers by double digits.

Clinton 55/Rubio 41

Clinton 56/Bush 39

Clinton 58/Paul 39

Clinton 58/Christie 39

Clinton 59/Walker 37

Clinton 58/Huckabee 37

Clinton 60/Cruz 36

Clinton 60/Carson 36

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 be footnotes in history books.

Latest 2016 Presidential Polls – 14 April 2015 Edition

The 2016 Presidential Election season is rolling, and the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) clown car has lurched away from the curb with the junior senator from Texas, Ted Cruz at the wheel. The junior senators from Kentucky and Florida, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio have joined Cruz on this political joy ride. Opposing this dynamic trio of right-wing idiocy is former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton – who announced her candidacy on Sunday.

So, where are we thus far in the early moments of the 2016 campaign?

In the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary, a REACH Communications poll of “registered Republicans and Undeclared” voters conducted 08-09 April 2015, has Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker leading pack of GOTP candidates and likely candidates. Scott Walker 23%, Jeb Bush 17%, Rand Paul 15%, Ted Cruz 9%, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson 7%, Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee 6%, Rick Perry and Carly Fiorina 2% and Rick Santorum not registering any measurable level of support.

On the Democratic side, a Boston Herald/Franklin Pierce University poll of likely Democratic voters conducted 22-25 March 2015, has Clinton in a commanding lead of undeclared candidates with 47%, followed by Elizabeth Warren at 22%, Joe Biden 10%, Bernie Sanders 8%, Andrew Cuomo 4%, Martin O’Malley 1% and Jim Webb with no calculable support.

How do things stack up if the General Election was today? The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll of registered voters has Hillary Clinton beating all GOTP comers by double digits.

Clinton 56/Cruz 39

Clinton 53/Bush 41

Clinton 54/Walker 40

Clinton 54/Rubio 39

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 be footnotes in history books.

Canadian runs for President – ay!

He’s thrown his hat into the ring, Republican Tea Party (GOTP) very junior Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz has officially announced he’s running for the office of President of the United States. The man who hates the government enough to shut it down now wants to lead it.

cruz declares

But where did Senator Cruz from Texas decide to launch his campaign, somewhere in his adopted home state of Texas? Adopted home state because the state of his birth is Alberta – as in Canada. Did he choose a site in Texas? Oh no, he chose to launch his presidential aspirations from possibly the single most conservative college campus in all the country, the late Reverend Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University.

While making his first presidential pitch, Cruz told his captive audience – as in the students forced to attend the rally under threat of a fine – to imagine a future without abortion rights, the IRS or the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare — and to further imagine they how can make all this happen by supporting him in his quest.

Although, it does seem odd for a candidate to start his ambitious run for the White House with lies and fictitious promises, that’s what Cruz has done. No President can overturn Roe v. Wade – considered to be settled law. No President can dismantle the Internal Revenue Service, and no politician is going to seriously strip 16.5 million fellow Americans of their health care insurance. Well, no sane politician. But of course sane is not the usual word used to describe Cruz, the man who decided to stage a 21 hour filibuster in a bid to defund Obamacare, a filibuster where he chose to read, Green Eggs and Ham, as the Federal Government went into a partial shutdown, and his party came out with green egg all over its collective political face. A shutdown that left him no friends outside the uber-far right fringe.

He has also recently demonstrated his lack of Constitutional understanding as to the Senate’s role in treaty negotiations when he attached his signature with 46 other GOTP senators to the infamous “open letter” to the leaders of Iran. Not a glorious exhibition of his foreign policy prowess or expertise.

The Tea Party poster child is the son of an American mother and Cuban-born father, a father who is an evangelical minister, who has suggested among other things that his son has been, “…anointed to bring about end time transfer of wealth,” and who has also declared that atheists and secular humanists beliefs eventually lead to, “sexual immorality, leads us to sexual abuse, leads us to perversion. And, of course, no hope. No hope.” Isn’t it interesting that after the kind of major stink the right raised about the President Obama’s connections to Reverend Jerimiah Wright, there has not been one whimper from the same about Ted’s connection to the crazed rants of his father.

Yes, the 2016 GOTP clown car has left the garage, and currently Ted Cruz is at the wheel.
