It’s no accident. Polling is both a science and an art, and our pollster, Ramsey, N.J.-based TechnoMetrica, excels at both.
With 16 days to go until November 8, Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 2 percentage points — 43% to 41% — in a four-way race, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll.
Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson saw his support held steady at 7%, while the Green Party’s Jill Stein dipped to 3%.
Unrounded, Trump leads 42.6% to 40.8% — a 1.8-point edge — with Johnson at 7.2% and Stein at 3.3%.
Trump also holds a nearly one-point lead in a two-way matchup — 43.2% to 42.3%.
The IBD/TIPP poll results continue to show a much closer race than most other nationwide polls. Only the Rasmussen poll shows Trump ahead in a four-way contest (by two points). The Real Clear Politics average has Clinton up by 5.9 points. And Clinton leads by an average 5.8 points in the latest two-way matchup polls.
The poll results include responses from 783 likely voters, with a weighted partisan breakdown of 282 Democrats, 226 Republicans, and 259 Independents. The results reflect the rolling average of six days’ worth of polling, with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points.

Trump does better than Clinton among men (48% to 34%), lower-income voters (48% to 35%), rural voters (60% to 22%), and those who express a religion.
Clinton beats Trump with women (46% to 38%), voters ages 18-44 (41% to 34%), the wealthy (47% to 38%), and investors (48% to 38%).
On the campaign trail, Trump was in Gettysburg, Pa., on Saturday, where he announced his “Contract with the American Voter” — a list of 28 actions he promises to take in his first 100 days as president, including tax cuts, immigration reform, freezing federal hiring, regulatory reforms, bans on lobbying for foreign governments by public officials, and many other proposals Trump has made during his campaign.
Trump said his focus would be to “restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities, and honesty to our government.”
He also made news over the weekend saying he would sue the women who have been accusing him of inappropriate behavior.
Clinton, meanwhile, has been acting as if the presidential race is all but won. Over the weekend she was, according to The New York Times, “working to ensure a victory that is decisive enough to earn a mandate for her presidency.”
The Washington Post reported that “emboldened by polls predicting an electoral-college landslide in the presidential race, Clinton is shifting her strategy to lift up other Democrats coast to coast.”
Politico reported that Clinton “is now more focused on electing other Democrats in the final days of the 2016 campaign than her Republican opponent.”
Most of the Clinton team has been going with ‘don’t recognize’ and ‘Russians!’. Brazile tried to imply they were false, but this puts paid to that.
Via Daily Caller:
Cryptographic signatures demonstrate that Democratic National Committee Chairman Donna Brazile is wrong when she suggests the WikiLeaks emails were altered and that she did not send an email tipping off Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to debate questions.
Many email systems use a verification system called DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) that shows whether an email has been changed. It uses a key stored on the email server that sent the email, so it can’t be forged.
CURRENT EVIDENCE (10-22-16) OF THE WHOPPERS SHE SPEWED TO THE FBI AND CONGRESS …. SHE SAID SHE COULDN’T REMEMBER ANYTHING ABOUT THE SUBJECT OF SECURITY AND CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS!
“Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”
The quote by Sir Walter Scott refers to how complicated life becomes when people start lying. In Hillary’s case it represents a LIFETIME of mastering the art form of lying, deceit, treachery and making hundreds of millions of dollars “while doing the peoples’ work”. !
Clinton Lectured State Dept. Staff on Cybersecurity In 2010 Video
Despite conducting her own government business through a personal “homebrew” server while secretary of state, Hillary Clinton is seen in a newly obtained video lecturing her staff of their “special duty” to recognize the importance of cybersecurity.
“The real key to cybersecurity rests with you,” Clinton says in the 2010 video, which was obtained by FoxNews.com. “Complying with department computing policies and being alert to potential threats will help protect all of us.”
Clinton goes on in the video to underscore the important work the State Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security and IT department were doing to guard against cyber-attacks. She warns hackers try to “exploit” vulnerabilities and penetrate department systems. She then urges staffers to log onto the internal cybersecurity awareness website or subscribe to their “cybersecurity awareness newsletter.”
“Together we can do our part to improve the security of the State Department and of our nation,” Clinton says.
Asked for comment, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz told Foxnews.com, “Hillary Clinton needs only to look into the mirror to find the biggest cyber security risk.
Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said, “This is not new. It has been widely reported that during Clinton’s tenure the State Department issued these kinds of warnings about possible cybersecurity to employees. These warnings were more than appropriate given that it was subsequently confirmed that State’s email was hacked.”
During her interview with the FBI, according to bureau documents released last month, Clinton claimed she could not remember a number of details regarding the training or guidance she received on various areas of department protocol. The interview summary said Clinton “could not recall” any briefing or training regarding the retention of federal records or the handling of classified information.
She also claimed she could not recall receiving guidance on “email policies outlined in the Foreign Affairs Manual.”
The video marks the latest example of how Clinton ran afoul of the very practices she expected others to follow. As Fox News’ Catherine Herridge previously reported, an internal 2011 department cable shows Clinton’s office once told employees not to use personal email for security reasons.
The same year, Clinton skipped a cyber briefing that the department security team put together just for her, according to congressional investigators and an unclassified letter from the State Department.
In 2010, the same year as the video, some State Department officials were voicing concerns about Clinton’s own email and computer setup. A department report found that two Information Resource Management officials had discussed worries about the system and were told it was approved by the legal department staff.
The inspector general report said it “found no evidence that staff in the Office of the Legal Adviser reviewed or approved Secretary Clinton’s personal system.”
Further, the same report detailed a January 2011 incident where an adviser who provided tech support for the Clinton email system notified a Hillary Clinton aide that “he had to shut down the server because he believed ‘someone was trying to hack us and while they did not get in i didnt want to let them have the chance to.’”
During the final presidential debate on Wednesday night, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told another unbelievable whopper about the country’s gun laws. In her answer to a question about her views on gun rights, Clinton said she opposed the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, which recognized the constitutional right for individuals to own and carry firearms, because it was about whether toddlers should have guns.
Yes, she said that.
It’s a lie so absurd that I honestly don’t know where to begin, but I’ll give it a shot: No, the Heller decision was not about toddlers. It had nothing to do with toddlers. Nothing. It’s no coincidence that the word “toddler” doesn’t appear in either the majority or dissenting opinions in the case. Nor does the word “toddler” appear anywhere in the 110-page transcript of the case’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court. Because the case had absolutely nothing to do with toddlers.
