Too Soon? Cuomo, Clinton Top 2016 Poll

The first in the nation New Hampshire presidential primary is only 53 months away, which of course means that pollsters are already taking the temperature of the electorate in the Granite State.

And, from this vantage point, New Hampshirites in 2011 want to see more of Andrew Cuomo and Hillary Clinton in five years time.

According to Public Policy Polling, in a 2016 field that includes Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo, Russ Feingold, Deval Patrick, Brian Schweitzer, and Mark Warner, the Secretary of State would cruise to victory with 50 percent of the vote. Biden comes next, followed by Cuomo, who grabs 9 percent.

In a field without Biden or Clinton, both of whom will be in their 70’s by 2016 and who have indicated that they are not interested in running for president, Cuomo cruises, grabbing 30 percent. Only “someone else/undecided” does better.

So with the 2016 race all but decided, anybody know who is looking at 2020?

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
