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

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. 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.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.

Martin O’Malley insisted the Democratic Party was “making a huge mistake when we allow the brand on our side of this national debate everyday to be questions about what did Hillary Clinton know, when did she know it.” O’Malley, appearing on “New Hampshire Today” with Jack Heath Thursday, insisted that questions about Hillary’s server are “legitimate questions.” Heath: You’re chuckling, and before I even ask you, you can comment in general. Trump, the combative real estate mogul, leads the 16 other Republican candidates with 28 per cent support among registered voters nationwide, up from 20 per cent in a similar July 30 survey by Quinnipiac University. Republican contender Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, lashed back, 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? 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. Her priorities are totally wrong,” Bush tweeted. “For Hillary Clinton to equate her political opponents to terrorists is a new low for her flailing campaign.

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. 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,” said Clinton rep Christina Reynolds. Often maligned for speaking too frankly, Mr Biden’s reputation for shooting from the lip might be one of his biggest weapons if he does decide to run against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

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. Voters in a Reuters/Ipsos survey who said they were open to backing Mr Biden for the nomination described him as an honest and forthright political veteran who is free of scandal despite decades in Washington. Some would say Hillary Clinton, first it was sort of a political attack against her, that she didn’t mishandle anything, that she didn’t mishandle marked classified emails. 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.

Those perceived attributes could give Ms Biden an edge over Ms Clinton, whose “trustworthy” poll numbers have dropped as she struggles with perceptions that she has not been completely open about her use of a private email account for official business when she was secretary of state. John Kasich of Ohio, telling supporters he had banned state funding for some rape crisis centers because they sometimes referred women to other health facilities that provide abortion services. Usually… Heath: Well, we are not like the national media, we like to ask substantive, and this is an important question, but I like to ask about the economy and jobs. The videos have prompted investigations by congressional committees and Republicans in Congress, and several states have sought to block government payments to the group.

While many opinion polls have been throwing Mr Biden’s name into the mix for some months, few have examined the reasons for his relative popularity among many Democrats. “He says what he means. It’s not always good, but he’s upfront and honest,” said Mary Lampron, 70, of North Providence, Rhode Island. “Maybe it’s not what he should say, but it’s what he thinks, which I admire,” she said. In 2012, Mr Biden surprised his boss, President Barack Obama, when he said he was “absolutely comfortable” with gay couples getting married, forcing Mr Obama to publicly declare his own support for same-sex marriage.

Mr Biden polls better nationally against the leading three Republican candidates than Ms Clinton, and has a higher favourability rating, too, a separate poll shows. These are not the issues and the answers to problems that the American people feel, even if the answers come out, will make life better around their kitchen table. We need to make college affordable, how we get wages to go up, how we allow people with to retire with security and how we get our economy to work again for all of use instead of just a few of us. I don’t trust her,” said Icie Farnsworth, 53, a lifelong Democrat, of Martinsville, Virginia, who said she liked Mr Biden’s voting record on the economy, civil rights and education. Last month Ms Clinton blamed a “constant barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the right”. “People should and do trust me,” she told CNN in an interview.

His death was another tragic chapter in the life of the Vice-President, who lost his first wife and his daughter in a car accident shortly after winning election to the US Senate in 1972.
