State officials are reviewing a very full landfill's proposal to expand. If rejected, it would have to close, which worries local trash collectors.
ml: New surveys, taken in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s escape from justice, show the polls turning in favor of Republican nominee Donald Trump. A new Quinnipiac poll has the billionaire moving past Hillary in several crucial swing states; Trump now enjoys a 3-point lead in Florida, a 2-point lead in Pennsylvania, and a tie game in Ohio. This, despite being outspent 40-1 in nine battleground states. For those inclined to dismiss the Quinnipiac poll, there is a new survey from The New York Times and CBS News that also paints a distressing picture for the Democrats. In that poll, Clinton and Trump are now tied nationally at 40% each. Last month, the same survey showed Hillary with a 6-point lead over her Republican opponent. In both cases, Democrats have been quick to point out that while Hillary has lost support, Trump hasn’t gained any. His numbers have remained steady while hers have deteriorated. They insist that she’ll bounce back after the FBI investigation fades from the nation’s memory. Maybe. Maybe she will. But this theory ignores the fact that Trump is barely trying. He’s spent almost nothing on advertisements, he’s barely begun building a ground game of any significance, and he’s still fighting a hostile GOP establishment. It seems very early for Democrats to assume that he’s reached a ceiling on his support. They may want to remember that Republicans made that same error in judgement just a few short months ago. Clinton met with Senate Democrats on Thursday, and some of them were reportedly concerned with the recent polls. According to The Hill, one senator said, “Some people were freaked out, looking down at the polls on Real Clear Politics and asking why it was so close.” The senator said that Clinton responded with apathy. “She said there are other issues. People are unhappy and they don’t trust institutions.” No…not when they’re run by people like Clinton. It’s a mistake to put too much faith in any one poll, but the current trend does not look promising for Hillary Clinton. She is vulnerable. Expectations of a landslide are vanishing. With every passing day, her chances are diminishing. Voters did not trust her from the beginning, and the email debacle has only reinforced that feeling. Put simply: She’s in trouble. On our side, Trump has plenty of room and opportunity to grow. If he can get an organized, well-funded political apparatus running, avoid needless controversy, and get the GOP on the same page, this election is his for the taking. But those are some big “ifs.” And if we simply put all of our hope into Hillary’s sinking numbers, we could be making a big mistake. A mistake that we’ll have four long years to reflect on. As Republicans, Trump supporters, conservatives, and patriotic Americans, the time has come to unify and fight. The enemy is ripe for the picking. All we have to do is go out there and finish them off.
