SHOCKING: TRUMP SURGES IN POLL; HILLARY DOOMED BY F.B.I. PROBE?

Posted on | October 30, 2016 | 3 Comments

 

Bad news today for “Crooked Hillary”:

Donald Trump has surged to within 1 point of Hillary Clinton in a national poll released Sunday morning.
Clinton leads Trump, 46 to 45 percent, in a four-way race including Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein in the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll. Johnson has 4 percent support while Stein has 2 percent.
Clinton led Trump by 12 points in that poll, 50 to 38 percent, early last week.

(Hat-tip: Steve Bartin at News Alert.) The headline stack this morning at the Drudge Report looks very bad for the Democrat:

HILLARY AT WAR WITH FBI…
Attack Strategy Has Risks…
PAPER: Dems should ask her to step aside…
LYNCH MOVED TO SPIKE COMEY…
HUMALIATED: Clinton aide doesn’t know how emails ended up on computer…
WEINER’S TALE OF SELF-DESTRUCTION…
GOODWIN: HILLARY ONLY HAS HERSELF TO BLAME…
Huma Swore Under Oath She Gave Up ‘All Devices’…
Vowed she was not retaining copies of emails…

Readers will recall — and perhaps never forgive — that I pronounced the election over three weeks ago. There was no way, I concluded, that Donald Trump could win after the sudden torrent of revelations about his past sexual misbehavior. What I did not consider, however, was that no matter how much damage Trump suffered, Hillary might still lose, simply because of the sordid doings (and sordid people) of Team Clinton:

In the summer of 2013, Hillary Clinton had just left the State Department and returned to New York. She planned a quiet year, basking in sky-high approval ratings and enjoying a respite from the media spotlight as she laid the groundwork for a second presidential run.
Then Carlos Danger happened.
Anthony D. Weiner, the husband of Mrs. Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, was running for mayor of New York when news broke that he had continued to exchange lewd messages with women online after the practice cost him his congressional seat. This time, he used the embarrassing Spanish-inspired moniker.
The tawdry story line and Ms. Abedin’s closeness to Mrs. Clinton made the events explode far beyond New York, dragging Mrs. Clinton’s name into messy headlines about penis pictures, Mr. Weiner’s descriptions of his sexual appetites and his online paramour named Sydney Leathers.
Now, with Mrs. Clinton seemingly on the cusp of winning the White House, Mr. Weiner, who once described himself as “a perpetually horny middle-aged man,” has pulled her into another drama. Federal investigators looking into his sexual messaging with an underage girl stumbled upon thousands of emails potentially pertinent to the F.B.I. inquiry into Mrs. Clinton’s private email server.

Yeah, creepy sex and lying under oath — this is the Democrat Party that everyone over 30 remembers so well from the 1990s, when Hillary’s husband was the Perpetrator-in-Chief. Millennials who did not live through that era, or who were mere toddlers when Bill Clinton wagged his finger in America’s face and said he did not have sex with “that woman, Ms. Lewinsky,” might want to catch up on the history of deceit and corruption that is likely to repeat itself if Hillary is elected.
