The mission of mnpACT! is to build a progressive community based upon the core values of respect, dignity and opportunity, by educating people about progressive ideas, advocating for progressive issues, and electing progressive candidates to local, state and federal offices.
There is a series of state polls being done via Gravis Marketing for Breitbart News. As you are probably aware, the former head of Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon, is now heading up the Trump Campaign.
This series of polls almost always gives a better number for Trump than any of the peer group of polls. I was wondering why this would be, outside of the sourcing. Gravis isn't a horrible polling group, Nate Silver gives them a B- rating with a GOP bias of 1.1....slanted but not hopeless.
It is particularly maddening when people focus on Hillary Clinton as an untrustworthy candidate. Especially when we know what is on the other side.
The NY Times finally did a full fact check over a week's time, following Trump and his statements. I think it is worth seeing the results:
The New York Times closely tracked Mr. Trump's public statements from Sept. 15-21, and assembled a list of his 31 biggest whoppers, many of them uttered repeatedly. This total excludes dozens more: Untruths that appeared to be mere hyperbole or humor, or delivered purely . . .
For years I have been listening to these Republican high and mighty statements about "standing on principle".
What principle? Are you talking about conservative principles? Really?
Please explain Trump.
As Ted Cruz becomes the latest to capitulate to the political expediency of Republican Trumpism, you wonder what kind of "stand" the party members are really taking?
Reince Priebus runs around like a lap dog gathering the Republican sheep into the Trump corral. John McCain, the "maverick", can't simply say the words, I cannot support Donald Trump. GOP Senate candidates tiptoe on this . . .
