I have polled Hillary Clinton’s national favorability for the past twenty-five years and I have never seen it drop to its current level of 40%. Not ever.
Her recent crash (to 40% favorable, 51% unfavorable in the July 30 Quinnipiac Poll) means that she is essentially in free fall, having lost a net of 16 points of favorability in Quinnipiac polls since November of last year.

As Hillary Clinton’s favorability drops week after week in the polls — it’s down to 43 percent — the real question is: Will she start losing the support of those who are the core of President Obama’s electoral strength?
Hillary Clinton’s latest lie is her claim that the only reason for the flap over whether she emailed classified documents was her “desire to have transparency and make everything public.” Except for her insistence on disclosure, “we would not be having this conversation.”
Mark Twain said there are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.
The recent Washington Post/ABC News Poll on Iran is a good example of the third kind.
Published last week, the survey led to headlines that proclaimed the popularity of the Iran Nuclear Deal recently signed by President Obama. The data showed public approval of the deal by 56-37 percent.
To the average American, the crimes of murder and rape are the most serious but to the intelligence community, it is misuse of classified materials and information. The very existence of the Intel operation demands secrecy and they do not look kindly on violations.
Now that ISIS has switched the focus of terrorism from coordinated attacks, which can frequently be picked up by intelligence surveillance, to hard-to-detect lone-wolf operations, it is our time to wonder why we let 127,000 students from Muslim-majority countries into the U.S. each year.

Who can possibly believe Hillary Clinton is authentic when she routinely makes it so obvious how utterly phony and inauthentic she actually is?
She pretends she’s just like the rest of us. But she’s not — and she doesn’t want to be.
A July 9th national poll by Monmouth University shows that 56% of Democratic primary voters would be “very” or “somewhat” likely to “consider supporting Biden for the nomination over your current choice” if he enters the race.

If Hillary Clinton becomes the next president — and in the process defeats Jeb Bush — the Bush family will only have itself to blame.
Without the active help of both former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton would be on the ash heap of history.
When Jeb Bush said that “people have to work longer hours and, through productivity, gain more income for their families,” he was doing much more than flubbing his lines. He was flagging a basic reason not to nominate him.
