11-year-old to CNN: Trump’s ‘bad words’ a lot better than getting head chopped off

North Carolina resident Matthew Schricker and his mother appeared on CNN after he made headlines for asking Vice presidential contender Mike Pence a question during a recent Donald Trump campaign event.

Shricker told CNN the election’s rhetoric doesn’t compare to the actions of ISIS.

“Matthew, a lot has been made in this campaign of the language that is used, the name calling that’s been used, especially in the primary,” reporter Poppy Harlow says. “As an 11-year-old watching it, what’s your reaction?”

“I really think that listening to a few bad words coming out of Donald Trump is a lot better than people getting blown up by terrorists, people getting burned alive, people’s heads being chopped off and people getting drowned,” Schricker responded.

Schricker’s mother, Mary, backed her son up saying Trump’s language is warranted by current world events.

“Honestly when it comes to confronting a terrorist I would rather have trump confronting him than his opponent,” she said.

Reuters Baffled As Clinton’s Lead Over Trump Suddenly Evaporates | Zero Hedge

We’re gonna need another polling methodology ‘tweak’…

Having seen her poll numbers suddenly explode higher (and Trump’s collapse) following Reuters’ decision to tweak its polling methodology, it appears we just witnessed ‘Peak Hillary’ as Reuters reports Clinton’s lead over Trump has tumbled back to just 3 points (the poll had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3 percentage points) meaning, as Reuters is forced to admit, that the results suggest the race is roughly even…

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican rival Donald Trump narrowed to less than 3 percentage points, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday, down from nearly eight points on Monday.

About 42 percent of likely voters favored Clinton, to Trump’s 39 percent, according to the July 31-Aug. 4 online poll of 1,154 likely voters. The poll had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3 percentage points, meaning that the results suggest the race is roughly even. Among registered voters over the same period, Clinton held a lead of five percentage points, down from eight percentage points on Monday, according to the poll.

Reuters tweaked data shows Hillary’s lead has peaked…

Reuters subtly points out the folly of their survey respondents…

Clinton had pulled well ahead of Trump on the heels of the Democratic National Convention last week, where she became the first woman to accept the U.S. presidential nomination from a major political party.

Since then, Trump has engaged in a days-long feud with the family of an American soldier killed in Iraq and squabbled with the Republican leadership over his comments and leadership turmoil within his campaign.

We leave it to Reuters themselves to conclude with their thoughts on the drop in Hillary’s support and revival of Trump…

The reasons behind the shift were unclear.
