Latest Polling Numbers as heard on the John and Ray Show

As discussed on the John and Ray Morning Show on Wednesday…

From the Washington Post: There’s been some movement toward Donald Trump in both national and swing-state polling over the past week. Trump’s problem is that, at least as of today, it’s just not enough. There are too many swing states that appear to have already slipped out of his grasp for relatively minor movement to drastically increase his chances of winning the 270 electoral votes he needs to beat Hillary Clinton in eight days.

Still, for Trump, who has weathered a terrible last month of the campaign, any positive news is welcome.

Clinton still has a clear map edge. But Trump now has a chance.

President Barack Obama has lifted the arms export embargo on Vietnam, saying the decision is based on a desire to complete what has been a lengthy process of normalizing relations between the two governments. Obama, who is on a three-day visit to the country, says the U.S. will continue to analyze weapons sales case-by-case, but it won’t have a ban based on an ideological division between the two countries. Fox News National Security Analyst K.T. McFarland joined John with reaction. (Listen here)

McHenry High School decided to block a girl from walking with her class at graduation after she showed up in her Marine uniform. She finished school months ago and joined the Marines, but came back for graduation. The school says everybody has to wear caps and gowns, so she wasn’t allowed to participate. She said she knew about the strict dress code requirements but decided to show up in her dress blues anyway. That hasn’t stopped some of her outraged classmates from protesting on her behalf. Rules are rules, but this is a girl who worked to graduate early so she could serve her country. Isn’t that an example you’d want people to follow?

Can we just have a mulligan for the 2016 election? A new poll has Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tied, but they also have the highest negatives in history.

Republican Ted Cruz’s decisive victory over Donald Trump in Wisconsin gave him momentum at a crucial time and put pressure on the front-running Trump to show he can absorb the shock and bounce back in upcoming primary states. On the Democratic side, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont easily defeated front-runner Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin, adding to Clinton’s frustration that she has not been able to swiftly knock out a rival who has attacked her from the left and march to the presidential nomination.

A couple of President Obama’s final exams from his time as a Constitutional Law professor has hit the Internet. He was pretty whimsical with some of his fictional situations for the questions. We’ve posted a few questions on our Reddit page.

Researchers at Stanford University found that humans were “emotionally aroused” when asked to touch a humanoid robot in its “inaccessible” regions. Ten human volunteers responded to commands from an Aldebaran Robotics Nao robot, such as “please touch my buttocks.” A sensor worn on the hand of the participants measured skin conductance, revealing that physiological and emotional arousal took place when such tasks were performed.

Duckworth, Roskam Question Clinton On Benghazi

By Bill Cameron, WLS News

(CHICAGO) Two members of Congress from Illinois, Republican Peter Roskam and Democrat Tammy Duckworth, are on the Benghazi committee and questioned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Roskam was the first Republican who got to grill Clinton. He called our policy in Libya a  disaster and tried to pin it on Clinton.

“You saw it, you drove it, you articulated it and you persuaded people, did I get that wrong?” Roskam asked.

“Well congressman, I was the Secretary of State. My job was to conduct the diplomacy,” Clinton said.

Duckworth, a Senate candidate, was the first Democrat to question Clinton. It was more of a lovefest.

“Even as a young platoon leader, we got and read [reviews] that gives the individual solder an idea of what the Defense Department is trying to do and I understand you initiated something similar in the State Department,” Duckworth said.

“I agree with you completely congresswoman. It’s a very successful road map as to where we should be going and I’m impressed that as a platoon leader it was something that you took into account,” Clinton said.
