Clinton surges in new polls
    As Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s aggressive comments about women sinks in, a new poll shows that Democrat Hillary Clinton has opened a double-digit lead.
    The poll, conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal, has Clinton with 46% support among likely voters compared to 35% for Trump.
    Libertarian Gary Johnson had 9% and Green Party Jill Stein 2%.

    In a head-to-head match-up, Clinton’s lead grows  to to 13%, the largest advantage over Trump since the poll began testing the pair last September.
    A total of 52% of respondents say that the audio tape should be an issue in the campaign, while 42% say it should not be an issue.
    Perhaps of more concern to Republican leaders is the fact that 49% say they would like to see Democrats in power on Capitol Hill, compared to 42% who chose the GOP.  It’s the largest advantage for Democrats since the October 2009 government shutdown.
    Similarly, Rasmussen Reports latest national telephone and online survey of likely U.S. voters finds that Clinton has jumped out to a seven-point lead, 45-38%.  Its last poll had Clinton at 43% and Trump at 42%.
    Libertarian Gary Johnson had 7% and Green Party Jill Stein 2% in the latest poll.
    Rasmussen  says  that  Clinton’s  lead  in  this latest poll is the largest margin stretching back to August of last year.
    What is significant is that 80% of voters say they are already certain how they will vote in this election.  Among these voters, Clinton leads 51% to 46%.
    Among voters who could still change their minds, it’s Clinton 43%, Trump 25%, Johnson 25%, and Stein 7%.

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.
