The UTV
by Dave Mindeman

Trump's new campaign manager, Kelly Anne Conway said this in a recent interview...

"The hidden Trump vote in this country is a very significant proposition," she added.Asked if she could provide an estimate of the number of those voters, Conway said the campaign had a ballpark figure but was choosing to keep it private."I can't discuss it," she said. "It's a project we're doing internally. I call it the undercover Trump voter, but it's real."

We have been missing something. The Undercover Trump Voter (UTV) is apparently out there and the Trump campaign is . . .

Laureate Universities
by Dave Mindeman

As long as we are doing Clinton "scandals", let's take on another one. This time we are getting attacks on Bill for getting paid $17 million for being an "honorary" Chancellor for Laureate Universities - a for profit education institution which operates University programs all over the world with 5 entities in the US - including Walden University (a MN based school).

OK - first Laureate has some of the same issues on how they present themselves to potential clients as other For Profit entities do. In fact, Walden University has had some class action . . .

Sometimes A Charity Really Is Just A Charity
by Dave Mindeman

Here we go again. Another attack on what the Clintons do. This time it is the Clinton Foundation and this idea that donors could "play for pay" access to the Secretary of State.

I want to quote part of the AP article that is in question:

"More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.

"Donors . . .

Disappointed In Democrats
by Dave Mindeman

I have not seen a lot of courage in Democrats these days. I see a lot of hedging and fudging and apologizing and blank stares when confronted. It is incredible to me that a Democratic candidate can stammer around when asked the question, "Do you think Hillary is honest and trustworthy?"

For those that are scratching their head, the answer is "Yes she is." End of sentence.

Democrats stand for something...at least they used to...and Hillary embodies those values. She has worked hard for women's rights. She believes in science and that we need . . .

The Utah Oddity
by Dave Mindeman

Public Policy Polling (a Democratic leaning poll) did a Presidential poll in Utah over the last week. Here are the results:

Trump....39%
Clinton...24%
Johnson..12%
McMullin...9%
Stein.......1%

Now Utah is a deep red state, so it is not surprising that the Republican, Trump, has a substantial lead. However, it is worth noting that Evan McMullin received 9% in his introduction to the Utah poll. McMullin is a Mormon and is a Romney type conservative. Going forward his numbers are bound to grow - at least here in Utah.

The question remains, will he help . . .
