As if things weren’t tough enough already for the California Republican Party delegation that traveled to the Republican Party’s nominating convention in Cleveland, OH, now we are finding out that the delegation was hit by a bad case of explosive vomiting and diarrhea!
Latino Victory Fund, Fusion and Latino Decisions Release First Nightly Poll Measuring Latinos’ Attitudes during the Republican National Convention
In the first night’s poll, 88% of Latinos say they don’t love Trump
Washington— Latino Victory Fund, Latino Decisions, and Fusion have partnered to conduct nightly polls to assess Latinos’ attitudes towards the Republican nominee and the Republican Party, throughout the week of the Republican National Convention. The polls will highlight Latinos’ sentiments and attitudes towards Trump, and the effect these sentiments have on their view of the Republican Party and down-ballot candidates who are either supporting Trump or who have denounced him.
Orange County is not the Republican bastion it used to be. Consider that in this week’s 2016 Primary Election the Democratic Presidential nominees, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, together netted over 130K votes while the GOP nominee, Donald Trump, only totaled 151K votes.
But the news gets worse for the OC GOP. Look at how poorly the Orange County Republican candidates for legislative offices did on June 7: Continue reading

Trump, you are not very excited about the idea of a “brokered convention.” Aside from falling short of the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination for president outright, the way delegates are chosen, and the nomination process itself, are not ideal for someone running an outsider assault on the party.

TRUMP FAVORED BY 390 DELEGATES & CLINTON BY 750 ON SUPER TUESDAY
FEB. 27, 2016 – The odds-makers at www.SportsBettingDime.com have set an over/under of 9.5 (out of 11) on the number of states Donald Trump wins on Super Tuesday and 10.5 states/territories (out of 12) for Hillary Clinton.

The predicted Super Tuesday blowouts also have the odds-makers at SportsBettingDime looking ahead to potential Vice Presidential candidates. For Clinton, some of the favorites include Julian Castro: 8/1; Brian Schweitzer: 12/1; Cory Booker: 15/1; Mark Warner: 15/1; Joaquin Castro: 20/1 – you can even get 6:1 odds on either Castro. But a surprise, off the radar pick (5:1) is the most likely choice for Hilary. An historic Clinton-Clinton ticket (75:1) is a real longshot. Continue reading

A week ago, Donald Trump stood before a massive crowd of some 30,000 people at a rally held in Mobile, Alabama.
There he gave a rousing speech about taking on the political establishment, appealing to the frustration of those present that the political class in Washington, D.C., has failed them.
When the rally ended, the loudspeakers in Ladd-Pebbles Stadium blared out “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by Twisted Sister, to a standing ovation. Continue reading
