I almost feel sorry for the #NeverTrump people. They just keep getting smacked. Today they got smacked by new polling that shows Donald Trump surging in key battleground states.
OK, I don’t feel sorry for them. They are a collective bunch of jerks.
New polling released today by Quinnipiac University (a lefty poll) shows Trump leading in Florida and Pennsylvania and tied in Ohio. It’s close in each state and within the margin of polling error, but this is the first time we’ve seen Trump surging into the lead.
I’m getting ready to start ignoring polling for about a month. Two of the next four weeks will be taken up by conventions and the polling numbers will reflect the coverage of the conventions. It will take a couple of weeks to settle down so I’m putting polling on hold until late August.
The encouraging thing about polling right now though is that Trump is making up ground. He’s picking up support after the Obama administration threw in the towel on the Hillary Clinton email indictment. That should have been good news for Hillary and obviously it wasn’t.
She’s got lots more problems coming up, more email problems and then there’s the Clinton Foundation. They raise billions to help the poor, but the only poor people they seem to be helping are the Clintons.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer.
