    Hillary Clinton could win the election on 11/ 8 /16.
    Based on her beliefs, habits and attitudes how will her nomination affect the Nation?

    For Instance:
    "Throughout her time in office, (secretary of state,) and in her final speech concluding it, Clinton viewed "smart power" as the strategy for asserting U.S. leadership and values—in a world of varied threats, weakened central governments, and increasingly important nongovernmental entities—by combining military hard power with diplomacy and U.S. soft power capacities in global economics, development aid, technology, creativity, and human rights advocacy As such, she became the first secretary of state to methodically implement the smart power approach. In debates over use of military force, she was generally one of the more hawkish voices in the administration. In August 2011 she hailed the ongoing multinational military intervention in Libya and the initial U.S. response towards the Syrian Civil War as examples of smart power in action."

      The nation "progresses" further towards the Great Nanny State of socialism and our wonderful leader gets closer to being uber rich.  We "progress" ever closer to bankruptcy and the American worker dies off some more.  Racism gets stronger with increased pandering and the number in poverty grows as more people are chained to governmental charity.  Our police force is cut (or murdered) and crime increases exponentially while we are forbidden to defend ourselves.  We "progress" to a land of foreign citizens that don't want to join our culture but to bring their own with them and turn American into what they ran from.

      It is a glorious picture!  Utopia in but 4 years!

      She will win because the system is rigged that way. It is as plain as the nose on your face. The only good to come out of this election cycle is many have finally seen the truth to our political process. Corporate interests are the only power in this country with us squabbling among ourselves about who is right in these prissy little arguments sponsored by the same politicians Corporate America chooses for us to elect. We almost certainly deserve to fail in our prideful arrogance while ignoring the seedy underbelly of deceit being perpetrated by the elite. Your social security is on the docket for removal after we have paid for it for decades. The first step is for them to call it an entitlement while it has always been a tax. It will happen soon enough.

        Of course, the system is rigged in favor of Clinton.  She has them ALL in her pocket. She wants to be President & will exert any means necessary to attain......IT!

      The GOP only has itself to blame for the outcome, almost any palatable GOP candidate would have a good run against Hillary Clinton with her high negatives.  This man, Trump, will prove to be the party's and the conservatives' downfall.  I am going to need a whole of formaldehyde to embalm that elephant for this election season.

      Alleged ‘Cooked’ Poll From Major News Organization Shows Clinton With Big Surge … big-surge/

      Democratic pollster, Pat Caddell, is disgusted with MSM companies "COOKING" the polls to favor Hillary, reveals that the MSM will violate every rule of integrity to rig the polls and the election in Clinton's favor. Of course the DNC was (after the fact) proved to be rigged in her favor over Bernie already ...and how was DW Shultz (the establishment chairwoman) held accountable? She was promoted to a lead person for Hillary's remaining campaign to cheat some more. The Democratic campaign is contemptuously corrupt to the core and has "0" honesty and integrity just like their candidate. Kudos to Pat Caddell... a Democratic pollster with integrity who calls out his own party for corruption & cheating!

      Is she REALLY in the lead?  Last week she was getting beat significantly in those same polls - are we really expected to believe that such a large percentage of Americans suddenly "changed their mind" and decided to vote for her after the convention? 

      If her path to victory appears so easy, then why is the President campaigning for her - he's using the bully pulpit to publically attack Donald Trump?

        Obama and the Globalist are in a panic because of the Trump movement.  If what Trump was saying was helping Hillary, Obama won't be attacking him, he'd be encouraging him to keep it up. 

        Lisa, says she was a eye-witness to voter fraud in Jersey City, and talks about kids getting paid money for their names and addresses for someone else to vote for Obama for them. … peaks-out/

        I don't know if that is true, but I wouldn't put anything past the liar-in-chief.  We sure do not need another Obama term with Crooked Hillary.  The DNC rigged the primaries against Bernie to steal the nomination, no democracy there for Bernie supporters and they hate Hillary.  Of course, the polls are being rigged, of course Crooked Hillary is going to try to steal the election.  Lies and deceptions, and the liberal media, that's all she has going for her.

          Why is it so impossible for Clinton to win the election fair and square. Conservatives types always have excuses to explain that which is obvious to everbody when it is not their desired outcome. Clinton simply gets more votes than Trump, can you just accept that without excuses?

            The Green party and Libertarian party presidential candidates were added to the polling questions, which worked in Hillary's favor, and against Trump.  Pollsters are outraged with the NEW way the polls have been rigged.  Reuters was even caught changing results on polls to favor Clinton.  BUT, you have to jump on me? 

            61% of voters think Hillary is dishonest, and she suddenly surges?  That is flawed! Especially since many Democrats are outraged with the corruption in the DNC in favor of Hillary.  Many, many Dems hate Hillary, but you don't see that on MSM, do ya'?   

            2016, the year Americans found out the elections are rigged! 
            Wake up!  (many of us knew that a long time ago)

            ADDED: always gotta get a slam in on Conservatives, don't ya'. 
            BTW, I am a Libertarian (not happy with how the party has changed). 
            A true Liberal in many ways, not this fake-pc-liberals we see these days.
            I don't like dishonest corrupt politicians like Crooked Hillary, Bill or Obama. (or the Bushes)

            They will not forget the voter fraud!  I guess you have, or its ok?

            Credence - it's not out of the question that Clinton could win the election fair and square, but unless she wins by a landslide, then you know partisan politics are going to rear their ugly head and people will claim fraud.

              It would be nice if people who claim fraud would actually show concrete evidence of its existence.  And, if fraud exists, that it was significant enough to make a difference in the result.  No fraud is acceptable, but to claim it as the cause of losing requires proof, not just a bunch of bluster.

      I don't think Clinton supporters should become too complacent. I predict another "revelation" from the cache of emails Russian security services hacked from the Democrats. If there is any more material in their that will help Trump, it's inconceivable that his Russian friends would not release it. But Putin is experienced in political intrigue (16 years as a KGB operator will do that). The Russians, or their allies, won't release the material until the timing is most damaging to Clinton. This is not over yet.

        If we can believe the Wikileaks founder when he said has more emails to release, and I do, then I think you are right. If Trump can hold on until then, we might be in for one of those infamous October Surprises.

        Which raises the thought that Clinton's campaign must also be concerned. Perhaps her campaign's emphasis on any particular point or issue, (going forward),  might give us a clue.

    The elite are masters of deception and want to trick us all into believing Hillary is ahead.  There is no way that is even remotely true.  Lies and deception, that's Hillary and the Globalists. They take Trump's greatest strengths and turn it into his greatest weaknesses, and some of the public buys into it.  They attack Trump's base because they know how strong he is as a nationalist, and how strong he is with our military.

    Trump has to win by a landslide.

    It is in the DNA of Communist Saudi Arabia, and Communist China to destroy America, and Hillary works for them both.  Look it up!

    Sixty-one percent of voters think Hillary Clinton is dishonest, yet she’s opened up a big lead over Donald Trump in the latest Fox News Poll.

    Here’s why: majorities think Clinton is nevertheless qualified to be president, and has the temperament and knowledge to serve effectively. It’s the opposite for Trump: over half feel he is not qualified, and lacks the temperament or knowledge to lead the country. And his 62 percent dishonesty rating tops hers.

    After the conventions, the Clinton-Kaine ticket leads the Trump-Pence ticket by 10 points (49-39 percent) in the race for the White House. Clinton’s advantage is outside the poll’s margin of error. A month ago, Clinton was up by six points (44-38 percent, June 26-28).

    Twelve percent of Republicans back Clinton. That’s more than double the number of Democrats supporting Trump (five percent). And while Clinton garners more support among Democrats (87 percent) than Trump does among Republicans (78 percent), she trails among independents.

    When Libertarians Gary Johnson and Bill Weld are included in the hypothetical vote, they receive 12 percent, while Clinton takes 44 percent to Trump’s 35 percent. They siphon off support about equally from both the Democratic and GOP tickets.

    Qualified to be president? Sixty-five percent say Clinton is vs. 43 percent Trump. Fifty-eight percent feel he isn’t qualified, including 45 percent who say “not at all.”

    On temperament, 64 percent say Clinton has it. Just 37 percent say Trump does. And 72 percent think Clinton has the knowledge to serve effectively, while 40 percent say the same for Trump.

    Republicans are still divided over their party’s nominee: 50 percent are happy with Trump, while 49 percent would rather have someone else.

    I am not the first to wonder if Democrats infiltrated the Republican party to put someone forward to dismantle their opposition.

    I am a Republican-leaning “independent”— and I have really tried to like Donald Trump, but it is getting more difficult.

    When it came to the primary vote, I checked Ben Carson, but being a Californian , I knew it didn’t make much difference what Republican votes were here.

    If Trump entered the contest to attract, rally and arouse all of those who are dissatisfied with the status quo, is he now trying to make those voters so disgusted with his behavior that they will not even vote?   If so, Clinton could win by default.

    Trump is not listening to anyone’s advice. He is being his ”own man” no matter what the  consequences. Is this the way he would run his presidency? Like a dictator who’s main concern is about what opponents think of him personally?

    Maybe he has decided he doesn’t really want the responsibility of the presidency. Maybe he never did.
    Maybe he’s just doing exactly what the Dems wanted.

    ”You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”*

    Is Trump’s ambition to be the one who fools all of the people?

    *This  familiar saying has long been  attributed to Abraham Lincoln as part of a speech given in September 1858 .(Ironically the speech was in Clinton, Illinois), but the “quote” is said not to be a part of the text printed in newspaper  reports of the event.

    Election Fraud in the 2008 Indiana Presidential Campaign: A Case Study in Corruption

    Read more: … corruption

    The allegations of electoral fraud first emerged in 2011 when a Yale University undergraduate student looked through the signatures of the petitions that were filed with Indiana election officials to get Barack Obama qualified for the Indiana Democratic primary ballot.[17] Ryan Nees, a former Obama White House intern, pored through the “byzantine and complicated” petition signatures.[18] Page after page of the voter names and signatures in St. Joseph County turned out to be complete forgeries.[19]

    Nees said the fraud was easy to detect “because page after page of signatures are all in the same handwriting.” A close inspection also revealed their similarity to signatures from a petition for a previous gubernatorial election. Even worse, some of the names appeared on the list several times.[20]

    Erich Speckin, a forensic document specialist, confirmed the forgeries, concluding that 19 of the ballot petition pages for Obama filed with election officials were illegitimate.[21] Nees uncovered the fraud while working as an intern for Howey Politics Indiana, a nonpartisan political news website, and later published his findings through the South Bend Tribune.[22]

    In the wake of these revelations, the state chairman of the Indiana Republican Party wrote to the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, David Capp.[ 23] Mr. Capp was nominated to serve as the U.S. Attorney by President Obama in 2009.[24] The letter requested that federal officials investigate the allegations of election fraud.

    Although Mr. Capp refused to act, state officials ultimately charged four people with conspiracy and forgery.[25] In an ironic twist, the state trial court had to appoint a special prosecutor, Stanley Levco, because St. Joseph County Prosecutor Michael Dvorak could not press charges since his signature was one of the ones forged, making him a victim of the crime.[26] Dvorak was not the only Indiana official with that problem: Former Governor Joe Kernan’s name was forged on a petition as well.[27]

    I understand there was certified voter fraud in Ohio and some other states as well at that time.  Its history, and we know that history repeats itself.
