    Latest polls point to changing 2016 landscape

    …………………………….

    Take the new NBC News/Survey Monkey results, for example.

    Attention is now rapidly moving to the hypothetical match-up between the leading candidates with an emphasis on a [Hillary] Clinton and [Donald] Trump contest. In this week’s poll, Americans are nearly split between their choice of Trump or Clinton; her margin over Trump narrows from 5 points last week to 3 points this week to 48 percent to 45 percent.

    ………………………………..

    A closer look at the details reveals roughly what one might expect to see: men prefer Trump, women prefer Clinton. Those with less education back the Republican; those with more support the Democrat. Trump enjoys a lead among white voters, while Clinton enjoys even larger leads among every other racial and ethnic constituency.

    I don’t know what the house and senate is doing here in regards to the defense bill? It sounds like they are trying to sabotage the war effort against ISIS and defund high technology?

    Former Republican staffer names Wisconsin senators who were ‘giddy’ about voting law changes
    JESSIE OPOIEN | The Capital Times | jopoien@madison.com | @jessieopie
    May 16, 2016

    Attorneys challenging a series of Wisconsin voting laws implemented over the last five years argued Monday that lawmakers intended to discriminate against non-white voters by passing them.

    The trial began with a former Republican legislative staffer testifying that not only was that the intent, but some state senators were “giddy” to do so.

    Todd Allbaugh, who served as chief of staff to then-Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center, when the state’s voter ID law was passed in 2011, said there initially wasn’t much enthusiasm among Senate Republicans to pass the bill.

    Sen. Mary Lazich, R-New Berlin, argued on the bill’s behalf to her colleagues in a closed caucus meeting, Allbaugh testified.

    “She got up out of her chair and she hit her finger on the table and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to think about what this could mean for the neighborhoods around Milwaukee and the college campuses around the state,'” Allbaugh said.

      GE Nena.

      Looks like Levenworth is out as a site to transfer the Guantanamo “forever” prisoners, though I heard a reporter ask Josh Earnest at today’s WHPB whether they might be transferred to a third nation.

      Statement from Pat Roberts’ website:

      “Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work, who would be responsible for leading the plans to relocate terrorist detainees at Ft. Leavenworth, assured me at a May 10 meeting that, ‘I am the person who would have to execute it [the moving of detainees to the mainland], and the clock has run out.’

      “Now I want to be clear that I know this will not change the president’s on-going insistence that he will close the facilities before he leaves office.

      “But I take Deputy Secretary Work at his word. He understands the significant and costly changes that would need to be made at Ft. Leavenworth to change the post’s mission. He understands the myriad of challenges that Ft. Leavenworth poses after reviewing earlier analyses. Most importantly, he understands the legal restrictions on funding to move the detainees to Ft. Leavenworth by January 20, 2017.”

    I see from reading today’s issues – the GOP seem to have given up on attacking PBO’s domestic policies – as their lies are not believable – so now they are attempting to discredit his foreign policies. They really hate their country.

    Comment from TPV… http://www.thepeoplesview.net/main/2016/5/16/home-stretch-your-kentucky-and-oregon-primry-open-thread

    Lastly, it’s amusing to watch Kornacki and the rest of them talking about how Hillary won Appalachia in 2008 and is losing it to Sanders now. I can explain that. I’m from there. Straight up, it’s virtually all white. And poverty-stricken. And people dislike minorities. She beat Obama there in 2008 because she’s white and he is black. And now, Sanders is beating her because he’s a white male and she’s female. Her coal comments aren’t why she’s losing there. If she was running against a minority male (or female) again this year, she would be winning there.

    i think that we can apply this in KY too
