The Politically Incorrect Podcast covers a great deal of ground on this fast moving show
WASHINGTON – On this edition of The Politically Incorrect Podcast, with Tom Jackson, Joe Henderson, Alan Steinberg and me. We talk about, how Donald Trump has won the Evangelical Conservatives beating out Ted Cruz for their support. He gave a speech to a group of influential Christian conservative pastors in Orlando.
Trump backers hope that the candidate’s closed-door address to the Orlando conference of the American Renewal Project will inspire evangelical voters and donors who have been part of winning elections for Republicans for decades.
Meanwhile, we talk about Hillary Clinton’s growing lead in the polls. Trump leads among whites by 54%-34% while Clinton leads 84%-4% among black voters. She has a growing 2-1 lead among Latinos.
For Clinton, the movement of voters in her direction began late in the third week of the polls, immediately after the Democratic convention. About 3 in 5 women became more supportive of her in the last two weeks, along with a similar proportion of men in the last week alone.
Similarly, older voters — who typically pay closer attention to politics than younger voters — moved strongly toward Clinton in the survey’s third week. Voters younger than 45 moved more heavily in the past week.
Other show topics include Donald Trump saying in Miami on Thursday that he meant exactly what he said when he called President Barack Obama the “founder of ISIS” and objected when a conservative radio show host tried to clarify the GOP nominee’s position.
Trump was asked by host Hugh Hewitt about the comments Trump made Wednesday night in Florida, and Hewitt said he understood Trump to mean “that he (Obama) created the vacuum, he lost the peace.”
“No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS,” Trump said. “I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton.”
Finally, we talk about new Clinton email scandal in a pay to play way.
