If Hillary Loses Ohio …

Posted on | November 3, 2016 | Comments Off on If Hillary Loses Ohio …


. . . well, finish that sentence however you wish:

Republican Donald Trump holds a 5-point lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton in Ohio, where her support among women is collapsing, according to a new poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University.
If the election were today, Trump would get 46 percent to Clinton’s 41 percent while independent Gary Johnson would pull 5 percent of the vote and Green Party candidate Jill Stein would get 2 percent, the poll found. Women voters are now split 44-44 in Ohio while 17 days ago Clinton held a 12-point lead in the same poll with female voters.
Peter Brown, Quinnipiac University assistant poll director, offered no explanation for the finding that Clinton’s support among Ohio woman is eroding, other than Trump is doing better overall in Ohio than he is in other swing states.
Quinnipiac reported on Wednesday that Clinton holds slim leads in other key states: One point in Florida, three points in North Carolina and five points in Pennsylvania. . . .
“No one has been elected president since 1960 without carrying two of the key swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. And, this year, North Carolina has been added to the mix. All four of these key states remain close entering the final days,” Brown said in a written statement. “Florida, which has the largest cache of electoral votes, is a virtual tie and North Carolina is almost as close. Donald Trump’s strength is with independent voters.” . . .

The possibility that the Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner email scandal could damage Hillary so badly in the closing week of the campaign that Trump pulls off a miracle comeback, is the sort of karmic payback Team Clinton richly deserves. The Clintons made a deal with the Devil long ago. Bill sold his soul to become president, lied his way through an impeachment scandal, and Hillary was this close to winning the White House just a couple of weeks ago. Yet now all the effort and money that has been poured into her campaign is on the verge of being lost because emails that weren’t supposed to exist — emails that Huma Abedin swore under oath she did not have — turned up on a device found by FBI agents investigating Anthony Weiner’s sexting with a 15-year-old girl.
