Two days and 7 states on the road, and you’d be hard pressed to know Hillary Clinton was in the race. Johnson’s total today outstripped Clinton’s two-day total. To be fair, Johnson scored 100% of his support along a narrow strip of Rt. 78 outside of Allentown Pa.. Perhaps an aberration.
The same pattern of lawn sign readings appeared during the last presidential election. Romney swamped Obama from Lynchburg, Virginia to Key West. Most of the handout crowd, non income tax payers, pseudo liberal university progressives, public sector unionistas, tort lawyers, Wall Street shysters and Hollywood psychotics neither run small businesses, farms, etc. nor populate small town neighborhoods that make up America’s real core. They tend to be clustered by the thousands in towers on top of each other in big city ghettos, cooperative high rises, and glass and steel edifices. Talk about two Americas. (Read The Door to Rebellion Must Never be Closed for more on this).
A look at the battleground polls early this a.m. indicates powerful Trump momentum. (Trump is pulling ahead in New Hampshire.) One serious chink in the Trump armor is a Clinton bounce in Florida. Trump has drawn huge crowds at his Florida rallies, and is not unaware of what needs to be done to take Florida, the absolute key to this election. Virginia would be a nice grab for Trump, but it is a no-go so far. North Carolina offers promise. It is Colorado that in the end may rule the day. Trump has some solid momentum and a chance to grab Colorado as well as New Hampshire and North Carolina. If so, he pulls off a shocker. If not the country will be saddled with easily the most unpopular president to ever take office in my lifetime. Rank and file Democrats were with Bernie Sanders. It was the entrenched delegates system that sank the Sanders boat. Will the Sanders mob turn out for Clinton?
Meanwhile, the FBI is not fooling around here, and Clinton has a betting odds chance of receiving some most unpleasant news pre-Election Day. Such an event would open the trap door under her and seal a Trump victory.
Debbie and I will spend today in central Virginia and post more for you in the a.m.
NC voter: I’m a woman voting Trump; it wasn’t a close call
