There is an explanation from him
But nah, don't bother
He seems to be in better spirits lately
With W in tow, his events are drawing a bit, no need to tell them when to clap
but I think he will come in 4th this week end and W may not want to tarnish his image much longer

All Americans should be worried that if Cruz becomes POTUS he will sell the entire country to Canada for 1 CAD.

Actually, that would be a pretty good deal since they'll mostly be purchasing tonnes of debt.

There is a person named Rafael Eduardo Cruz. He could run against William Jefferson Blythe IV's wife. But first he must get by John Ellis Bush.

Guns are for pussies. My weapon of choice is a machete or other type of blade in which i can inflict maximum pain for a slow death. Unless i am in a hurry, then i just go medieval on that ass.

Polling update. Sanders trails Clinton nationally by ten points according to USA Today/Suffolk and two points according to Quinnipiac.

More polls where Sanders outperforms Clinton nationally against Republicans...some media outlets making a big deal over this even though it's something that's been going on for months now.

Trump has about a 15-20 point lead over Rubio/Cruz nationally...really starting to look like he's going to run away with this thing unless Republicans can quickly coalesce behind one of those two alternative candidates.

Sanders trails Clinton by 1 point in the most recent Nevada poll and is tied with her in the one from a few days ago. Likely going to win that caucus.

Sanders continues to inch up against Clinton in South Carolina...moves up about a point every couple days, currently hovering at an 18 point deficit after trailing by 19 and 20 over the past few days in similar polls. No telling how much a Nevada win could help there.

If it were 'Trump v Rubio' or 'Trump v Cruz', it would probably very tight. The 3-way race favors Trump.

3 most recent National GOP nomination polls

NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl 2/14 - 2/16 Trump - 26 Cruz - 28 Rubio -17 Cruz +2

Quinnipiac 2/10 - 2/15 Trump - 39 Cruz - 18 Rubio - 19 Trump +20

USA Today/Suffolk 2/11 - 2/15 Trump - 35 Cruz- 20 Rubio - 17 Trump +15


From The NBC/ Wall St. Jrnl

Quote:
The results from the poll — conducted after Trump's victory in New Hampshire and Saturday's GOP debate in South Carolina — are a significant reversal from last month, when Trump held a 13-point lead over Cruz, 33 percent to 20 percent.

Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted this survey with Democratic pollster Peter Hart and his firm Hart Research Associates, says Trump's drop could signal being "right on top of a shift in the campaign."

"When you see a number this different, it means you might be right on top of a shift in the campaign. What you don't know yet is if the change is going to take place or if it is a momentary 'pause' before the numbers snap back into place," he said.

McInturff added, "So, one poll post-Saturday debate can only reflect there may have been a 'pause' as Republican voters take another look at Trump. This happened earlier this summer and he bounced back stronger. We will have to wait this time and see what voters decide."

This poll comes after other surveys -- both nationally and in South Carolina, the site of Saturday's next Republican contest -- show Trump with a commanding lead. But some of those weren't conducted entirely after the last debate like the NBC/WSJ poll.

Another possible explanation for Trump's decline in the new NBC/WSJ poll is an increase in "very conservative" Republican voters from January's sample.

If the current poll is re-weighted to reflect the ideological composition from last month, the GOP horserace numbers are: Trump 26 percent, Cruz 25 percent, Rubio 18 percent and Kasich 13 percent — so Trump is ahead by one point, but still down from January.

In addition to Trump's decline in the GOP race, the new NBC/WSJ poll shows a nine-point drop in the percentage of GOP primary voters who can see themselves supporting the real-estate mogul — from 65 percent in January to 56 percent now.

The highest candidate scores on this scale: Rubio (70 percent can see themselves supporting him), Cruz (65 percent), Carson (62 percent), Trump (56 percent), Kasich (49 percent) and Bush (46 percent).

And in hypothetical one-on-one match ups, Trump trails both Cruz (56 percent to 40 percent) and Rubio (57 percent to 41 percent). In January, Trump was ahead of Rubio (by seven points) but behind Cruz (by eight points).

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Feb. 14-16 of 800 registered voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.5 percentage points) and 400 GOP primary voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 4.9 percentage points).
While this may spell trouble ahead for Trump in the primary, he got better numbers in head to head match-ups vs Clinton/Sanders from USA Today/Suffolk. ( The most recent RCP recognized poll of 1000 LV)

Trump 45 Clinton 43 (December's USA Today had Clinton up 4)

Trump 44 Sanders 43

The latest averaged (5) polls on RCP still favor Clinton +3.4 and Sanders +7 in head to head versus Trump.

I see what you did there.



At least she shows some humor and is having fun. That's a big criticism of her on the stump.
