Trump fox 0 by Lou Gehrig Burnett, Publisher of Fax-Net

Louisiana is never considered a key state in presidential elections, so it has not been easy to determine how voters feel about the race.

    But we finally have two polling snapshots on the Bayou State, and one thing seems certain.  Republican Donald Trump owns Louisiana and will pocket the state’s eight electoral votes.

 

 


    A Washington Post/Survey Monkey poll reveals that Trump has 49%, Democrat Hillary Clinton 33%, Libertarian Gary Johnson 9%, and Green Party Jill Stein 3%.  Six percent were undecided.
    A four-way match-up gives the best picture of the race.  When it was a question that included Trump and Clinton head-to-head, Trump led 53-38% with 9% undecided.
    The pollster had this to say about Louisiana:
    “Louisiana should be one of Trump’s most  favorable states.  The state contains large numbers of white voters without college degrees that have been the backbone of Trump’s support.  Louisiana also has a strong populist tradition, which makes it more receptive to Trump’s populist message.
    “There is also a less strong #NeverTrump movement in this state than in others.  All of the state’s major Republican officials and candidates have  endorsed Trump.”
    The poll also shows that Clinton gains more support in Louisiana than Trump when it is narrowed down to a two-way race as is the case in most other states.
    Looking at the national picture, the Washington Post/Survey Monkey poll has Clinton with 244 solid or leaning electoral votes, Trump with 126 solid or leaning, and 168 toss-ups.  To win, 270 electoral votes are needed.
    Another polling snapshot of Louisiana has been done by Morning Consult, a media and technology company.
    In a four-way race, Trump has 43.4%, Clinton 29.6%, Gary Johnson 9.7%, Jill Stein 3.4%, and 13.9% undecided.  When Trump and Clinton are matched  head-to-head, Trump leads by a margin of 50 to 31.7%.
    Morning Consult went on to predict the outcome of the election if it were held today, giving Clinton 332 electoral votes to Trump’s 206.  Should that be the case, Clinton could lose some key battleground states and still win the election.
    However, there is still a long way to go before November 8.

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.
