    Some Democrats are smugly watching the Trump excitement or chaos, thinking it opens the door for Hillary. Not so fast. In fact, the opposite could happen. Trump makes the Republican contest exciting and entertaining, increasing voter participation. By contrast, Hillary represents the old, parsing of words, dishonest, unlikeable, and completely unexciting political hack.

    -------------------------------------

    A stunning new poll shows trouble brewing for Hillary Clinton in key swing states, with the Democratic presidential front-runner trailing potential Republican rivals in every match-up tested.

    The Quinnipiac University poll put Clinton head-to-head against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in three states: Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.

    In every hypothetical contest, the former secretary of state was either clearly trailing or, as Quinnipiac phrased it, "on the wrong side of a too-close-to-call" race. A majority of voters in all three states also said they found Clinton not honest and trustworthy.

    The gap between Clinton and GOP candidates was most pronounced in Colorado and Iowa. She trailed Rubio by 8 points in Colorado, 38-46 percent; and Walker by 9 points, 38-47 percent. She trailed Bush by 6 points in Iowa, 36-42 percent; and Rubio by 8 points, 36-44 percent.

    The survey raises troubling questions for the campaign, which has struggled to shed the image of a candidate who is closed off to the media and the public, despite her decisive lead over the Democratic field. The latest results reflect a drop from a similar poll in April.

    "She has lost ground in the horserace," Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.

    In another troubling sign for the Democratic candidate, voters gave her poor marks on being trustworthy. In Colorado, for instance, voters said 62-34 percent she is not honest and trustworthy.

    Clinton wasn't the only one taking a hit in the latest poll. Though Donald Trump has narrowly led the GOP presidential field in some recent polls, the Quinnipiac survey showed voters, by roughly 2-1, had a negative view of the billionaire real estate magnate. Brown said that means his "growth potential" is lower than that of his GOP rivals.

    The polls were taken July 9-20, of 1,231 Colorado voters; 1,236 Iowa voters; and 1,209 Virginia voters. Each had a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points.

    Don't underestimate the power of swing states in national election math. In major elections in recent history, the populated key Democratic states have always gone to the Democrats. The swing states often determined the outcome. Think Florida, Ohio for example.

    Swing State Polls: Bernie Just As Strong As Hillary
    Both Dems losing to Walker, Rubio, and Bush.

    Democrat Hillary Clinton is trailing some potential Republican opponents in three key swing states, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac, and doing about as well against the GOP as one of her rivals for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders.

    I would love to see Trump get the nomination just to watch him rip her apart in the debates.

    Erm, perhaps this is not a good time to tell you about the bit in the Quinnipiac poll socal conveniently forgot to mention:

    "Perhaps the biggest loser, however, is Donald Trump, who has negative favorability ratings of almost 2-1 in each state, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds."

    southbeach1500 saidThis is all very interesting, however, whoever ends up running on the Republican side will be destroyed by the major media, the usual newspapers (NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, etc) will "reluctantly endorse Hillary" and because her message will be "more free stuff" for the 48% of Americans receiving some form of government assistance, she will win.

    This is not a reflection on whoever runs on the Republican side, rather, a reflection on the ignorant and morally empty state of the electorate.

    It might be kind of hard for them to go too negative on Rubio for example. What would they pull up - his traffic tickets again? People know the mainstream media is biased and they don't have the same impact they might've had in the past.

    That would be fun to watch. I think Trump's negatives are too high for the nomination, but you never know what might happen after the debates.

    Not me. I want to see us win the election. There are serious international issues that will need to be dealt with.

    Someone is trying to provoke an incident. Sure, we need far stronger than what we have right now.

    Wonder how Trump would respond? Give Puter's cell phone number out?

    One good thing though, given the business Trump is in, he's had a bunch of experience negotiating with Iranians.

    If Trump could be a team player maybe Secretary of Commerce.

    "team player"

    All this guy has ever done is get in knock down drag outs with people. He's the farthest 'thing' I've ever seen from a team player.

    Maybe an advisor or consultant. Whatever. Fact is despite his negatives, he says things about trade, for example, that others don't mention or are not aware of. He also brings negotiating skills to the table that the US sorely lacks, especially after the shameful, disgraceful performance of this administration: Obama/Clinton/Kerry.

    Very true. I would have gladly sat Trump at the table with Zarif and let Zarif start that screaming bullshit with The Donald. I will guarantee you that Trump has been through it hundreds of times before while doing deals. Trump will have none of it. So I will give him that.

    And he likely would have got our hostages that are STILL being held by Iran back BEFORE any negotiations on the nukes even began.


    And again I agree.

    That's 27 match ups, and if I read correctly, all were won by Republicans. No one can say Clinton and Biden don't have name recognition, and they still lost.

    One other comment about these three states: Bush won them twice and was elected each time; Obama won them twice and was elected each time.

    They are significant.
