Polls: Trump Continues to Gain

As of early this morning, Hillary’s lead in the poll average is down to 1.7 (RCP).  A CNN poll has Trump up in a couple battleground states, within the margin of error in others, including Pennsylvania (ABC News).  Monmouth has Hillary up in the battleground states, but not as much as before (CBS News).  Quinnipiac has things very tight in the swing states, with Trump up 5 in Ohio (CNBC).  Hillary’s double-digit lead in Virginia has turned into a Trump 3-point lead (Washington Times).  That’s 14 electoral votes almost all maps have firmly in Hillary’s corner. Early voting in Ohio was huge for Obama, not so much for Hillary (WCBE).  A Michigan poll has Hillary’s lead down to 3 (Fox Detroit).  You’d have to go back to 1988 for the last time a Republican took the state. A poll out of Colorado has the two tied (CNN).  Details (Document Cloud).  A look at the North Carolina numbers that show Trump rising (The Pulse).  Remember that talk of Hillary challenging Trump for Texas?  Forget it (CBS Dallas).

Democrats Attack Comey

Hillary immediately went after Comey, who excused her the first time around (NY Times).  John Podesta took a desperate, bizarre direction with Jake Tapper, suggesting the FBI started the investigation without looking at the emails (Daily Caller).  Howard Dean compared Comey to Putin (Mediaite).  Harry Reid accused Comey of hiding “explosive” information tying Trump to Russia (CBS News).  The Washington Times notes of Democrats, this comes “Months after they declared James B. Comey an honest arbiter” (Washington Times).

Hillary Camp Stunned by FBI Investigation

From CNN:  There’s never been a major party nominee under FBI investigation leading up to the election before (CNN).  From House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes: “I just don’t see Director Comey opening this case back up 11 days before the election unless it is quite serious” (Washington Examiner). From one story:  James Comey’s decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director (Daily Mail).   Another story notes “It is unclear why – given the Clinton email team knew for weeks that they might have cause to resume their work – they did not tell Comey sooner” (Chicago Tribune).  A look at the parallels between Hillary and Nixon (National Review).  And then there’s this: …24 years ago, as former President George H.W. Bush was surging back against challenger Bill Clinton, a special prosecutor raised new charges against Bush in the Iran-Contra probe, prompting Clinton to claim he was running against a “culture of corruption” (Washington Examiner).  From the Wall Street Journal:  New details show that senior law-enforcement officials repeatedly voiced skepticism of the strength of the evidence in a bureau investigation of the Clinton Foundation, sought to condense what was at times a sprawling cross-country effort, and, according to some people familiar with the matter, told agents to limit their pursuit of the case. The probe of the foundation began more than a year ago to determine whether financial crimes or influence peddling occurred related to the charity (WSJ).

Clinton Headlined Fundraiser for Campaign Group Which Gave $500,000 to Wife of FBI Boss Who Investigated Her Emails

From the story:  Clinton’s ties to the Common Good VA – a Virginia state PAC run by Clinton’s long-time friend and advisor Terry McAuliffe, its governor – came under scrutiny this week after the Wall Street Journal reported that the group donated heavily to the state senate campaign of Jill McCabe. Her husband Andrew McCabe led the FBI investigation into Clinton’s emails (Daily Mail). Meanwhile, from Kimberly Strassel on the latest email revelation:  In an election season that has been full of surprises, let’s hope the electorate understands that there is at least one thing of which it can be certain: A Hillary Clinton presidency will be built, from the ground up, on self-dealing, crony favors, and an utter disregard for the law. This isn’t a guess. It is spelled out, in black and white, in the latest bombshell revelation from WikiLeaks (WSJ).

Polls Show Trump Closing

Hold on to your hat.  The forgone conclusion isn’t so forgone after all.  All of a sudden, the gap narrows to three nationally, according to one poll (Fox News).  One poll shows Trump back on top in Florida (NY Post) while another has him down three but closing (News Channel 10).  Hillary’s lead in New Hampshire has been sliced in half (CNN).  Another has Trump leading in Ohio (Townhall).  And look out, a poll has Trump within three in Pennsylvania (RCP).  The RCP average has Hillary still up 5.4 (RCP).  Senator Rand Paul claims polls showing Clinton ahead are “designed to suppress turnout” (CNN).  Gallup shows a bit of a Trump rebound (Hot Air).  Could Obamacare be having an impact? (CNN).  And on a completely different political note:  if you haven’t yet seen this ad for commissioner Gerald Dougherty, you need to (Digg).

WikiLeaks: Hillary Had Gun Control Plants in Townhall Audience

From a Podesta email (Breitbart).  Meanwhile another story notes liberals are upset with Hillary as “Some of the left’s most influential voices and groups are taking offense at the way they and their causes were discussed behind their backs by Clinton and some of her closest advisers in the emails, which swipe liberal heroes and causes as “puritanical,” “pompous”, “naive”, “radical” and “dumb,” calling some “freaks,” who need to “get a life” (Politico).  Most of the media continue to ignore the leaks (Washington Times).
