Hillary Clinton sees post-convention boost over Trump, but will it last?


President Obama speaks Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia

In a statement last night, the Republican nominee’s campaign called her remarks “an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric”, saying the speech was “delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today”.

On Wednesday night, Mr Obama told the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia that he struggled to see the America that Donald Trump often described on the campaign trail.

“I don’t like her. I don’t trust her”, McCarthy said. I feel your anger, your sense of betrayal at having been left behind by an economy that exacts higher costs and rewards fewer people and communities than it should.

Earlier in the day, Trump refused to credit Clinton’s unique role in history. “She assesses with detail all the policy implications and gets to the root cause of a problem and the guts of the solution better than anyone I have seen, and that includes Obama and Bill Clinton”, Weiner notes.

Conway said she could not yet share a schedule for Ivanka Trump’s future appearances or specify in which states the campaign will focus.

The bus tour runs through two of the biggest battleground states, and through Rust Belt cities that may prove some of the most hard terrain for Clinton in her race against Republican Donald Trump.

Even though DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Clinton ally, resigned on Sunday, angry Sanders supporters throughout the week disrupted the convention and undermined efforts by Clinton and Sanders to present a united front.

Not everyone was convinced. “That’s why when there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit”, the 68-year-old Clinton said in a speech that capped the four-day nominating convention. “But there are other dangers and concerns for another set of people if Hillary wins”. Also a Sanders backer who’s supporting Clinton, she said the speech underscored the need for progressives to work with Clinton on issues such as education, campaign finance reform and trade.

The candidate, and her vice presidential pick, U.S. Sen.

Clinton repeated the convention’s theme of “stronger together”, declaring that her lifelong goal has been to ensure that Americans can use their talent and ambition to help make the nation stronger.

As she prepared to deliver her speech, people familiar with the matter said the FBI is investigating a cyber attack against another Democratic Party group, which may be related to an earlier hack against the Democratic National Committee.

Polling following both conventions and ahead of November’s election will begin in earnest as of next week; but it’s likely that Clinton will receive a bounce from last week’s successful display of competence from Hillary’s camp. “I’m not telling you that everything is peachy keen – I’m telling you we’ve made progress, but we have work to do”.

“We love Tim Canova”, said Jake Quinn, as many of his fellow Sanders supporters volunteered to me that they have donated money to the insurgent opponent to Wasserman Schultz.

In a moment created to appeal to more conservative Americans, Clinton forcefully said: “I’m not here to take away your guns”. For those who vote for me and those who don’t. “Donald Trump’s not offering real change”, she said.

For many, including Clinton herself, it was like seeing snow for the first time.. If it was up to Donald Trump he never would have been in America. Williams said Clinton came off as a leader who would be firm but understands the importance of cooperation and compromise.

“There are many, many very ardent, vocal Bernie supporters, and they’re in the streets, and they’re making it known and I totally feel their pain”, he said.
