Clinton: GOP candidates’ views on women akin to those of terrorists.

I guess the mainline news out of the latest Quinnipiac University National presidential poll, released today, is that Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump by a wider margin than Hillary Clinton would.

Clinton, talking at Case Western University in Cleveland about GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, said: “Extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the President.” Republican contender Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, lashed back via social media, raising the recent controversy over Planned Parenthood workers’ handling of fetal tissue. “@HillaryClinton compares pro-life Americans to terrorists, but defends despicable PP treatment of unborn?WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — Billionaire Donald Trump extended his lead yet again atop the Republican presidential field, with front-running Democrat Hillary Clinton slipping and Vice President Joe Biden faring better than her against Republicans, poll results revealed Thursday.Trump has 28 percent of the vote, up from 20 percent in a July 30 national survey. “This is the highest tally and widest margin for any Republican so far in this election,” reads a polling memo. “Donald Trump soars; Ben Carson rises; Jeb Bush slips and some GOP hopefuls seem to disappear. Her priorities are totally wrong,” Bush said. “For Hillary Clinton to equate her political opponents to terrorists is a new low for her flailing campaign.

Trump proves you don’t have to be loved by everyone, just by enough Republicans to lead the GOP pack,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. She should apologize immediately for her inflammatory rhetoric,” RNC National Press Secretary Allison Moore said in a statement. “Instead of trying to manufacture outrage by twisting Hillary Clinton’s words, Republican presidential candidates should stop pushing extreme policies that would limit women’s reproductive health care choices,” Clinton rep Christina Reynolds said. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson placed a distant second with 12 per cent, followed by former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Marco Rubio, each with seven percent. Trump’s abrasive style, including his caustic criticism of rivals, has led some observers to say he does not have the temperament to be president, but he has dominated the race essentially since he declared his candidacy in June. On the Democratic side, Clinton’s support has shrunk, to 45 per cent now compared with 55 per cent on July 30, while her main rival Senator Bernie Sanders is polling at his highest level, 22 per cent.

With polls showing her support among men weaker than among women, she will need a strong showing from both single and married women to become the nation’s first female president. The word most associated with Trump was “arrogant,” followed by “blowhard.” And for Bush, it was “Bush.” The next word for Bush was “family.” From Aug. 20-25, Qunnipiac surveyed 1,563 registered voters nationwide, including 666 Republicans and 647 Democrats.
