    Very interesting.

    -------------------
    Excerpts:

    Confidential polling data shows Hillary Clinton could lose the presidential election in heavily Democratic New York to Donald Trump as the GOP front-runner’s support grows to the point of being “surprisingly strong,” The Post has learned.

    The poll results, from Democratic and Republican legislative races, have surprised many leading Dems, virtually all of whom have endorsed Clinton, while confounding and energizing GOP leaders, many of whom until recently have been opposed to Trump.

    “There are some Democrats who think that Hillary can be taken if Trump mounts a strong campaign,’’ one of the state’s most prominent Democrats said.

    The new polls, a second source said, showed Trump’s support, even without Bloomberg in the race, was “surprisingly strong’’ in Westchester and on Long Island, the key suburbs often viewed as crucial swing bellwethers on how statewide elections will turn out.

    The polls found that Clinton often had higher negative ratings with voters than did the more controversial Trump, whose inflammatory pronouncements have often angered and even horrified many of his fellow Republicans.

    “In the suburbs and upstate, Trump has a net positive while Hillary is a net negative,” one longtime Republican operative contended. “She’s more of a liability than many Democrats realized.”

    Some of the polls also found a greater degree of intensity among Trump’s potential voters than among Clinton’s, a finding that mirrors the stronger GOP turnouts that have been registered in the presidential primaries.

    Last time NY went for a Republican was for Ronaldus Magnamus in 1980 and '84.

    Even having this conversation about NY means Hillary is in HUGE trouble. And Donald Trump is only getting warmed up. He's hardly spent any money, but his support is still growing by leaps and bounds, bringing throngs of NEW and RETURN voters back to the Republican party....including people such as me....an Obama supporter from 2012. Thank you Donald Trump for bringing me back home. I feel whole again! icon_biggrin.gif

    Joe, I don't lie.

    I admit this because Obama has been a huge mistake. The US middle class has now fallen BELOW 50% for the first time in many decades. And why? Obama is a complete failure.....more illegals come in....while manufacturing jobs continue to leave. More added to the federal debt under Obama than all previous presidents combined. People disillusioned...ballooning heroin crisis...lowest labor participation rate in many decades. Middle East people are being displaced and slaughtered. People are angry. Iraq has fallen...while ISIS has risen, etc. Donald Trump is one of the most celebrated business leaders of all time....while Hillary couldn't even keep 4 employees safe and Bernie is a weak socialist retread....couldn't even stop 2 girls from taking over his rally. Not even close.

    Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.....Trump is owning NY...first Republican since Ronald Reagan. That's historic! Donald Trump is speaking for Americans, and more and more people are waking up to his message. icon_biggrin.gif

    Shades of Reagan... This has an 80s feel to it. People were so fed up with Carter (D) that it was Reagan's for the taking- as the landslide proved.

    Definite parallels.
