    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/08/01/in-the-first-major-poll-after-both-conventions-trumps-bump-has-vanished/Prior to both conventions, a poll from CBS and the New York Times had Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tied at 40 percent. What's remarkable about that isn't just that the two were tied. It's that 20 percent of respondents did not have a preference between them. In the first poll conducted after both conventions, that situation has changed. Now, according to CBS News, Clinton leads Trump 46 to 39 — a seven-point swing

    Compared to the pre-convention poll, Clinton gained six points and Trump lost one. The margin of error here means that Trump's support is essentially unchanged — but Clinton's gain is real. Broken down by party, you see that Clinton improved dramatically with independent voters, gaining after both conventions.

    If all goes well, the next Trump bump will be Lyin' Donald's orange ass hitting the floor on Nov 8.

    I strongly believe that many Americans ultimately will decide that they love this country more than their political party. As an example, Jeb Bush's top advisor and a lifetime Republican, Sally Bradshaw, today said that she's left the Republican Party because "this is a time when country has to take priority over political parties. Donald Trump cannot be elected president . . . [because he is] a total narcissist--a misogynist--a bigot." She added, "As much as I don't want another four years of Obama's policies, I cannot look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump. I can't tell them to love their neighbor and treat others the way they wanted to be treated, and then vote for Donald Trump. I won't do it." Bravo!

    This does seem a referendum on whether America will remain true to its inclusive values thereby justifying its continuing leadership in a world of diversity, Also, as the Republicans failed to stop trump from winning their primary, I'd think their best bet to regain the party of conservativism is let Trump's candidacy die for if he gets four years as president, by the end of that will be the end of them if not the end of all of us. Whereas should they fail on purpose to win the presidency under Trump, they have a chance to regain their party without having lost too much face, just the orange bits.

    But a Trump win is not just a danger to the GOP, rather that conservatives might try to stake a home in our backyard. So we Democrats are gonna keep the Sanders dogs out. You Republicans are welcomed to park safely in our driveway overnight and sleep in your cars. Just don't make yourselves too comfortable. And as soon as your daddy Trump leaves,to go back to his day job, we fully expect for you to sneak back into your own house.

    You keep dreaming and believing all these baseless polls bunk.
