    Pollster: “The Dam is About to Break” on Hillary

    According to former Jimmy Carter pollster Pat Caddell, Hillary Clinton is hemorrhaging support as a result of the FBI announcement and we could see a repeat of the 1980 election when anti-establishment candidate Ronald Reagan won in a landslide.

    Caddell drew comparisons to the 1980 presidential race, which was close right up until the final days before the electorate abandoned Carter and rallied around the anti-establishment candidate, leading to Reagan taking victory in a landslide.

    Which is what he'll need to be sure Broomhillary can't steal it out from under him. Not that she won't try anyway.


    Caddell noted that Carter’s entire campaign had been built around portraying Reagan as unqualified and “dangerous,” in a similar vein to how Clinton has demonized Trump.

    Caddell explained that the polling between Reagan and Carter was close up until the final weekend when “the dam broke” and Reagan shot ahead by ten points.

    Stating that he had been looking at the data regarding unfavorability ratings for both Clinton and Trump, Caddell noted that since Friday, large numbers of voters had been structurally “moving against the status quo – the incumbent who is essentially Hillary Clinton.”

    As an ABC News poll found, Hillary’s unfavorability rating just hit its highest ever mark.

    Caddell said that the latest information regarding the FBI re-opening its investigation into Hillary’s email scandal was the “popper” that “could open up significantly before it’s over,” meaning it would be the decisive factor that enables Trump to defeat Hillary.

    For the "dam to break" against her, she'd have to have considerable support to start with. I know a lot of polls have been claiming that. But none of the few (more) credible polls have. Some of those have had her a little bit ahead, surging ahead and falling behind at times. But the main culprits claiming she has a lot of support have claimed ridiculous numbers from the beginning, like 14% up, even 21% up, and that sort of thing.

    Clinton’s unfavorable rating hits new high in poll | Trump targets Democratic states in final sprint

    Sixty percent of voters view Hillary Clinton unfavorably, according to a ABC News/Washington Post poll released Monday morning, the highest level of unpopularity yet for the Democratic presidential nominee.

    Her Republican opponent Donald Trump is seen unfavorably by essentially as many, 58%. Overall, the race for president is heading down to the wire, with the poll showing Clinton leading Trump among likely voters by just one point, 46% to 45%. The poll was taken Wednesday through Saturday.

    Using the last two nights’ results, after FBI Director James Comey revealed a further Clinton-related email investigation, 47% of the Democratic nominee’s supporters said they were very enthusiastic about her, compared with 51% across the previous six nights.

    47% are stupid, which is an improvement over the 51% who were previously stupid.
