Hillary Clinton has opened a double digit lead over Donald Trump in a nationwide poll of likely voters released by Monmouth University today. Prior to the conventions, Clinton held a slim two point lead.
Both candidates remain unpopular, but the Democrat has a growing advantage on being seen as more temperamentally suited for the presidency. Still, Clinton’s email use remains a problem for her, while voters are divided on the impact of Trump’s attitude toward Russia. The poll also found that voters are less optimistic and enthusiastic about the 2016 election than they were one year ago.admin | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Monmouth University Poll | Tags: 2016 Presidential politics, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Monmouth Poll, Monmouth Poll.

Maggie Moran, the Managing Director of the Asbury Park based Democratic consulting firm Kivvit and the wife of Belmar Mayor “Lawless Matt” Doherty, announced on facebook yesterday that she has donated to the reelection campaign of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Wasserman Schultz is the Chair of the Democratic National Committee until Friday. She announced her resignation after DNC emails that proved she rigged Hillary Clinton’s Democrat nomination for president were released. She was then named Honorary Chair of Clinton’s campaign.
That’s perfectly consistent with the Monmouth County Democrats’ ethos that it is OK to cheat and the ends justifies the means.admin | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Mike Doherty, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats | Tags: #MonmouthStrong, 2016 Presidential politics, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Dirty Doherty, Hillary Clinton, Lawless Matt Doherty, Maggie Moran, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | 1 Comment »
In the Clinton universe a little email scandal should never be a career killer.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz will open and close the Democratic National Convention in Philadephia this week and then step down has Chair of the Democratic National Committee, ostensibly because of the leaked emails from the DNC proving that Clinton’s nomination was rigged by the committee and Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
It seems Wasserman Schultz’s apparent forced resignation is really just a transfer. Hillary Clinton announced this evening that Wasserman Schultz will become the Honorary Chair of the Democrat presidential campaign.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Hillary Clinton | Tags: 2016 Presidential politics, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic National Committee, Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton | Comments Off on Hillary names Wasserman Schultz her honorary campaign chair
