Sheldon-Adelson-vs-Donald Trump


Sheldon Adelson, head of the Republican Jewish Coalition, is among a number of Republican groups wavering or steering clear of supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to a report in the Guardian on Saturday. Many Republican donors worry that a Trump loss to Clinton would have a catastrophic effect on Republican House representatives.

According the report Adelson,  one of the GOP’s largest donors, also “irked by a lot of things, ” including that Trump did not paid a visit to Israel, and that he chose Mike Pence as his vice presidential candidate instead of House Speaker Newt Gingrich, as Adelson wanted him to do.

Adelson also “was uneasy with Mr. Trump’s behavior in the weeks after the Republican convention last month, ” according to the Times.

Although Adelson has pledged $100 million to Trump’s campaign in May, the casino mogul have not yet contributed to Trump’s effort, the Republican National Committee or “the groups backing him”, the Times reports.

The Guardian spoke with two GOP sources whom told that Adelson had given in secret $10 million to One Nation, a group run by a former top aide to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.


More than half of respondents in a new poll said they plan to vote for Hillary Clinton — the first time the Democratic presidential candidate has breached that all-important 50 percent threshold.

The poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University found the former secretary of state leading Trump 51 to 41 percent in a head to head race.

“We are starting to hear the faint rumblings of a Hillary Clinton landslide as her 10-point lead is further proof that Donald Trump is in a downward spiral as the clock ticks, ” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Support for Clinton falls below 50 percent if third-party candidates are thrown into the equation.

The former first lady gets 45 percent, with Trump polling 38 percent, when Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party contender Jill Stein are added to the mix.

Johnson gets 10 percent and Stein is at 4 percent in the Quinnipiac poll.

Trump’s campaign has stumbled in recent weeks after a series of perceived gaffes. Commentators say it has struggled to make the transition from the scrappy party nomination fight to the battle to become US commander in chief.

“Trump’s missteps, stumbles and gaffes seem to outweigh Clinton’s shaky trust status and perceived shady dealings. Wow, is there any light at the end of this dark and depressing chapter in American politics?” Malloy said.
