trump-scriptIn many ways, Donald Trump’s off-record comments have made Trump’s primary season.  The cry, let Trump be Trump resonated with the Republican primary voters, although, there were obviously many who were offended.

Now, however, Trump is down an average of 7 to 8 points nationally and even more so in some of the swing states.


 On Monday, pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics of Louisiana, engaged in a Facebook Live video interview with Bayoubuzz publisher Stephen Sabludowsky.  In part one, Couvillon discussed a new poll he conducted of the swing state Georgia which had Clinton up by seven points.

While Georgia is a Southern State, it has been a dominant republican state. 

In today’s segment of the Couvillon interview, the topic turned to Trump’s off-the cuff statements and how they are hurting his campaign.  Letting Trump be Trump is resulting in poll numbers in the dumps.

Here is a quick summary of this segment, part 2.

According to Couvillon, Trump can right the ship but he needs to stop the blunders.  The pollster has divided the summer weeks into packets of two weeks each.  Trump gaffed his way downward with his comments about the New Mexico governor, the Hispanic federal judge and other comments.  As a result, his numbers plummeted to a seven points drop.

However, the Republican convention brought Trump even with Clinton which lead quickly dissipated with a Democratic burst and post-convention debate bust.

Couvillon said his campaign cannot be a takeover of the Republican party and that will only hurt the Trump campaign, not help.  He will continue to fall in the polls if he fails to make Hillary the issue and focus upon her weaknesses.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
