    While Donald Trump spent much of the past year confounding critics with his head-spinning ability to transform each new gaffe into higher poll numbers, the billionaire’s primary campaign magic seems to be wearing off as the general election gets underway. Over the last two weeks, the presumptive G.O.P. nominee has found countless new ways to offend his foes and alienate his allies, from his racist attacks on a federal judge, to publicly celebrating his own foresight in the hours after a horrific mass shooting, to suggesting that the president of the United States is a secret terrorist agent. And the polls, finally, are beginning to register the nation’s disgust.

    After several weeks of polls that showed Hillary Clinton only a few points ahead of Trump, and two that put her lead within the margin of error, Bloomberg on Tuesday released a poll giving the former secretary of state a whopping 12-point lead on Trump in a head-to-head matchup. CBS released a poll as well, showing her maintaining a six-point lead over Trump. A popular vote with results in that range would lead to an electoral landslide, too: according to a Frontloading HQ analysis, released Monday, Clinton destroys Trump in the electoral college, 358 to 180. Last week, an ABC poll showed her winning the national map with 262 to 191, assuming Trump takes all the Republican-leaning states.

    Clinton’s favorability ratings, too, are better relative to Trump’s rapidly tanking numbers. Another ABC poll shows Trump at a 70 percent unfavorability rating, only one point away from his highest unfavorable score ever...

    Lyin' Donald enjoyed a brief "presumptive nominee" blip in the polls. It's all going downhill from here - for him and the GOP.

    Don’t count Ronald Reagan out as a national candidate for the fall. He is not, they say, “a McGovern or a Goldwater” — fringe candidates who led their parties to one-sided defeats in 1972 and 1964. Intellectuals don’t want to take him seriously, but he does well with working-class voters.

    Are you aware that Reagan had been a two term governor of our largest state before running for president?

    Trump isn't the resurrection of Ronald Reagan. SORRY!

    It might be time for Republicans to start panicking about Donald Trump

    Screen-Shot-2016-06-17-at-12.23.22-PM.pn

    The Republican National Convention begins in Cleveland in 31 days. That means that in one month from today, Republicans will (almost certainly) start the process of nominating Donald Trump as their presidential nominee to take on Hillary Clinton in the fall campaign.

    That prospect looks increasingly problematic — somewhere between a stone-cold loser and a long-shot gamble. With not only the White House at stake but Republicans' Senate majority and maybe even their House majority in real peril, the idea of nominating Trump should be cause for a growing sense of panic within the GOP ranks.

    I've been watching real clear stats too. Also huff pollster does an aggregate like that. It started diverging again right when it became clear that Clinton would be the nominee over Bernie. Which takes away a bit from his argument that he'd have a much better chance of beating Trump though we won't know of course until later. But also interesting are real clear's aggregates of a three way with Johnson and a four way with Johnson & Stein. And for now at least, even given all that, Hillary's numbers look good.

    I think that speaks pretty well of Clinton but especially I think that speaks very well of the Democratic Party.

    All the polls on British Columbia predicted the incumbent Liberals would be trounced in the last election right to the election. Much explaining needed by the media when the liberals easily romped to a huge win, lol.

    In the Internet Age accurate polling has become notoriously difficult.

    No, you're absolutely right. Trump might win. And my pledge to visit NYC and show my ass in Macys window if he does, still stands.

    Tell me something I don't know.
    Perhaps I was too subtle and you missed the point. June is not November.

    Jesse Ventura- a pro wrestler- was elected governor of ultra-blue state Minnesota because he was not a politician.
    Polls are inaccurate - even the day before the election. The Reagan landslide will tell you that.
    Trump has been underestimated for the last six months by a number of candidates. He will continue to be underestimated.
    Hillary's criminal past has nine lives and will follow her for years.

    We will not know the answer in November.
