Trump, Clinton solidify positions in respective races

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Billionaire businessman Donald Trump remains the undisputed leader of the Republican presidential field and his lead has even increased over the past month.

During a campaign event in Waterville, N.H., Trump expressed, “You know, one of the things that comes out in the polls is that I have the most loyal people. People say ‘he can do anything. He can do anything.”

A new Quinnipiac University poll showed Trump with 27 percent of the votes, a 10-point lead over his closest competitor, Senator Marco Rubio. This is Trump’s best showing in the poll since August and a three-point jump from last month.

Ben Carson, who was only a point behind Trump last month, dropped to 16 percent, putting him in a tie for third place with Senator Ted Cruz.

Cruz, who is gaining ground in some polls in Iowa, has become more outspoken against the leader of the pack. During a campaign event in Bettendorf, Iowa, he said, “Let me be very clear, I don’t believe Donald Trump is going to be our nominee, don’t believe he’s going to be our president.”

Meantime, the same Quinnipiac University poll found Hillary Clinton with 60 percent of the votes, a two-to-one lead over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race.

At a recent Women for Hillary Fundraiser in Washington, D.C., where 13 out of 14 female Democratic senators have publicly expressed support for her campaign, Clinton said women need an equal chance to compete.

She stated, “It’s 2015 and we need to do more to lift up the opportunity ladders that have been knocked down or broken up.”

With only two months to go before the Iowa caucuses, Trump and Clinton are showing no signs of losing steam and are clearly solidifying their positions in their respective races.

The same Quinnipiac poll showed that in a head-to-head competition, Clinton would beat Trump 47 percent to 41 percent.  It also found that the Democratic frontrunner would also beat other Republican contenders.

    Trump leading on all surveys,GOP establishment/Superpack does not want him to be nominated, because he is financing his own campaign, chances are the GOP establishment will fixed the primary, and will not nominate Trump.Fund raising for Ben Carson in LA last week,raised $6 Million.The GOP superpack gave Ben Carson $140,000 only.They said there are so many expenses and that is what is left. Trump was correct Superpack is a racket,the establishment lobbyist and strategist get paid tremendously. Former lobbyist from Jeb Bush who is going down, moved to Rubio, because they are so much money to be made.Clinton will be the sure nominee for the Dems, she will continue Obama’s policy.

    We are about to make the same mistake we have made twice in the last seven years. We are listening to words without applying them to their actions in the past. It is not what they say that counts it is their tract record that speaks. We need to let this be the test for any candidate of any office within our government. I do not blame those who run and do not have the necessary talents, or taken the time to develop the skills for the job. I blame the American people who elected them for what they say rather than what they do. This takes time, we need to research each and every individual we are considering to lead this country. We need a leader who is ready to listen to advice from informed advisers then make a decisions for the good of this nation, not a political party.
