Outnumbered: The Fox News Poll Findings

I was watching Outnumbered, a show featuring four female panelists and #OneLuckyGuy, on Fox News this morning, and they were saying that Donald Trump’s numbers are going down and that he is falling behind Hillary Clinton.

Their tone kind of inferred, I thought, that maybe, just maybe — they didn’t exactly put their heads on a block — Trump’s presidential race could be over.

Indeed, the latest Fox News Poll shows that “Hillary Clinton is up 44-38 percent over Trump in a head-to-head matchup.”

And yet, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released yesterday, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were running neck and neck.

And a new “Zogby Analytics online survey of 875 likely voters, conducted between 6/28/16 – 6/29/16, shows the race “too close to call” but adds that “Trump leads Clinton big among Independents.”

Today, veteran journo Bob Unruh writes: “In what may be a harbinger of things to come this fall, a new national poll released on Thursday reveals support for presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump at 43 percent, to only 39 percent support for Hillary Clinton, who probably will be the Democratic candidate for president.

“The stunning numbers are a complete turnaround from just a week earlier, according to Rasmussen Reports, which released the results.”

Again, as I articulated in yesterday’s post on this blog, Trump needs to curb his impulsiveness before it gets him into irreparable disfavor with the American voters.

Nevertheless, going by all of the above, it seems the #OneLuckyGuy wasn’t alone in being Outnumbered. So was the Fox News Poll.

New Poll: The Clinton-Trump Race Is Too Close to Call

According to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today, Donald Trump (40%) has caught up with Hillary Clinton (42%), or at least close enough as makes no difference.

Nevertheless, in the opinion of American voters, neither candidate is good presidential material.

Even so, it’s quite a bounce-back for the Donald after the brutal two weeks he had to endure recently as a consequence of bad-mouthing that Mexican American judge so inappropriately over the Trump University case.

Trump really needs to curb his impulsiveness before it gets him past the point of no return — in a bad way — with the American voters.

And he also needs to understand that the teleprompter is his best friend. He is way too prone to letting slip ill-considered remarks when he makes the off-the-cuff speeches he so prides himself on being able to do.

He’ll never forgive himself if, after successfully seeing off sixteen other candidates for the GOP nomination, he throws it all away now with only Hillary Clinton left standing between him and the White House.

Trumpism on the Other Side of the Pond

The United Kingdom has voted to break free of the European Union, sending shock waves across the world.

Did anyone think it would actually happen? The pro-leave group probably would’ve thought it was too much to hope for. I’ll bet they could hardly believe the good news when they learned it.

In contrast, the mainstream media are shocked at the turn of events.

An excerpt from the Spiegel Online reads as follows:

“The United Kingdom is leaving! You have to write it again just to believe it. Brexit is no longer merely the subject of pub talk. It is reality. The nightmare has come true and Europe is bewildered about what happened.”

Now they and the rest of the mainstream media are busy feverishly forecasting all kinds of bad consequences for the United Kingdom — and indeed the rest of the world — over the folly of opting to leave the European Union. But the British voters will ignore these prophets of doom just as they did their earlier warnings leading up to the referendum.

The unsavory truth for the mainstream media is that they no longer have much sway in driving public opinion. Finally, the majority have wised up to their agenda to support special-interest globalists.

More than anything, the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union was a vote against open borders and unfettered immigration.

From an American perspective, it was a case of Trumpism on the other side of the pond.

You’ll Never Believe Why This Father Disinherited His Son

I knew a guy once whose father had disinherited him, and when he told me the reason, I thought he was having me on.

And when I tell you what he told me, you’ll probably think I’m having you on.

Anyway, according to the guy, his father and mother had been living together for more than twenty years without getting married, and he thought it was about time his father made an honest woman out of his mother. So he started to nag his father to do the right thing.

Eventually, his father relented and married his mother.

Six months later, they were divorced. And not only divorced, but estranged and living apart as well.

The guy’s father blamed him for ruining what had been, up until the time of the wedding, a perfectly happy relationship — and disinherited him forthwith.

The adage, “No good deed goes unpunished” certainly kicked in with a vengeance there.

An article I just read, reminded me of that story.

Men and women who hate having sex

Believe it or not, there are many able-bodied men and women of all ages around the world who have no interest whatsoever in participating in “bedroom antics.”

It’s not, however, that they don’t appreciate a close relationship with someone special.

They do. They really do.

Just as long as there’s no copulation involved—the very idea of which is repugnant to them for various reasons.

Many over-the-counter medications linked to irreversible dementia

According to the findings of new research, long term use of over-the-counter medications could cause permanent dementia.

Pet scans have revealed that the brains of older adults who took some of these medications for years had actually shrunk.

Sure enough, that sounds like permanent damage.

Specifically, they’re referring to long-term use of an “antihistamine known as diphenhydramine, which is commonly sold as Benadryl and included in many over-the-counter medications for cold and allergies.”

The counter-argument, of course, is that the “active ingredients are approved by the FDA and recognized as safe and effective when taken as instructed.”

You can decide for yourself about that.
