Poll shows Sanders edging in on Clinton, Trump leads GOP pack

Bernie Sanders is closing the gap on Hillary Clinton nationally, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Clinton has 44 percent of Democratic voters, Sanders has 42 percent, and 11 percent haven’t made up their minds.

Donald Trump still leads the GOP pack at 31 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 22 percent, and Marco Rubio at 19 percent. Yet 30 percent of party members say they would refuse to support Trump.

When it comes to strength in a general election, Sanders and Rubio have the best chances of winning — assuming former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t enter as an independent, according to the poll. It finds that Bloomberg’s entry would hurt Sanders in a general election more than anybody.

    Word of mouth is spreading far and wide, what I learned when on plaintiffs’ legal team on the ‘trial of the century’, Hedges, et. al. v. Obama, et. al.. And, that info. I found following then Sect. of State Hillary’s Clinton’s banning of the taking of a deposition (‘depo’) of one of our plaintiffs, the Hon. Birgitta Jonsdottir, a member of parliament of Iceland and longtime supporter and protector of WikiLeak’s Julian Assange.

    Evidently, H. Clinton could not take the chance of WikiLeaks leaking info. on the corruption of the Clinton Foundation. The C.F. had agreed, in writing, to do monthly full reporting on any and all ‘dontations’ they’d received. The C. F. failed to keep this agreement, in addition to turning down hefty donations from sources they agreed to not accept donations from.

    In addition, I received info. from an excellent source, that H. Clinton is one of the biggest of the big politicans who are ‘bought off’ by AIPAC, the infamous lobbyist ‘buyer offer’ from Zionist Israel, the country truly dedicated to keeping the U.S. in endless war mode in the Middle East.

    More and more voters, both men and women of any and all ages, are becoming concerned re. Hillary, and are switching their support to Bernie Sanders, insofar as, unlike Hillary Clinton…

    SANDERS PANDERS NOT, TO THE 1%
