With Trump Regaining North Carolina Lead, Hillary Unexpectedly Postpones Local Fundraiser "Without Reason"

Tyler Durden's picture

If there was a time Hillary needed to make a public appearance in the key battleground state of North Carolina to drum up voter support, it was today, if for no other reason than a just released Elon University poll finding Trump now has a modest 44% advantage among likely voters in the Tar Heel State, with 43% going to Clinton.


According to the poll, most voters felt Trump would be better for rich people, white people and men, while most believe Clinton would be better for poor people, women and minorities.  “This election is so tight right now, that small swings of a few points should be expected between now and November,” said Jason Husser, assistant professor of political science at Elon and director of the Elon University Poll. “North Carolina has been extremely important over the last several election cycles with very tight election outcomes. These numbers suggest that will continue to be the case, and both campaigns would do well to continue to focus on the Old North State.”

It's not just the closeness of the poll that makes NC so critical; it's also Trump's recent rebound, which as shown in the following chart from Real Clear Politics has him taking the lead for the first time since late June.

Which is why we find it surprising that with Hillary's desperately needing to make an appearance, overnight CBS reported that Clinton campaign officials said that a Tuesday fundraiser in Chapel Hill was postponed.

The Clinton event was billed as “lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and had four donation levels to attend. Those contribution levels were described as $100,000, which featured “chair reception with Hillary,” $33,000, which included a “host reception with Hillary,” $5,000, which included “preferred seating” and $2,700.

No reason was given for postponement of the Clinton event, which was planned to take place at the home of Betty Craven and Michael Warner.

Is Hillary's health once again becoming an issue?

We don't know, although based on a video recording of Hillary during a speech last night in Philadelphia, some neurological issues may have returned. As The American Mirror reported, "Hillary’s eyes appeared not in-sync with one another." A montage of Hillary’s eye-catching moments before a small group of Temple University students can be seen below in footage by The American Mirror.


Whatever the reason, Trump would take full advantage of Hillary's absence to build on his momentum in the state: a small Eastern North Carolina town is preparing for Donald Trump’s appearance Tuesday. Trump will hold a rally in Kenansville Tuesday just two weeks after making a stop in Greenville. The rally will be held at the Duplin County Event Center and it is likely to be the largest event ever held in Kenansville, with a population of about 855.

For Trump’s event, Between 7,000 and 10,000 people are expected to attend the rally, which could mean heavy traffic for the usually quiet town. Multiple law enforcement agencies in and around Duplin County are working together to prepare for the event.

Pocket knives, handguns and other firearms are also not allowed in the event center. Sheriff Blake Wallace said there will be a designated area for any protesters as well. Doors for the event will open at 3 p.m. with Trump scheduled to speak at 5 p.m. Trump also plans to hold a rally in High Point around noon on Tuesday.

Trump also took the opportunity to take a jab at Clinton's over today's surprising fundraiser "postponement."


Has Hillary's health deteriorated again to the point where she can't make public appearances due to pneumonia? We should know soon: her next public appearance is scheduled for tomorrow, when she is due to speak at a rally in Orlando, Florida.

That debate is going to be like watching a nascar race.

What do you mean? Going around in circles? Perhaps they will hologram her double for it.

I think he meant everyone will be waiting for that first car crash (and many will be hoping it's a doozy). :-)

Global Hunter's picture

"the big one" as the commentators say at restrictor plate races.

nuubee's picture

It could have something to do with the fact that her eyes are no longer in sync

An unfortunate, but common side effect of possession by multiple demons.

They don't always pull in the same direction, and often argue over who's boss.

Latina Lover's picture

The demons are burning out Hillary. They are so sick of her, they want to leave badly.


Saddest part of losing Hillary are the jokes:

Q. What does Bill Clinton say after sex?

A. Hillary, I'm home!!

demolition derby is moar like it

nuubee's picture

Hillary has Advanced Parkinsons, all the signs point to it, including the latest eyes-not-converging problem in Philly.

She is mentally unfit for any government office, much less POTUS, and that's before you even discuss her criminality.

Perimetr's picture

Don't worry . . .

Hillary's double can fill in again . . .

NoDebt's picture

A Clinton missing a $50,000/plate fundraising event?  Unless she's dead, or incapacitated, she'll be there.  I'm hoping this means dead.


knukles's picture

Maybe they'll stuff her.

I've got an older buddy. We were chatting, and he has never seen Weekend at Bernie's.

I implored him to find it and enjoy.

Geez, when you are sick with a terminal illness and you want your last act in life to be elected President of the United States, you should be able to cancel a few fund raisers and campaign speeches.

All I ask is that there is a 5 flight walk-up to get on stage for the debates.  No assistance allowed and cameras covering every inch of the stairs.


thebigunit's picture

If you're a Clinton, you want your last act in life to be a $59,000 per plate fundraser in the LA Colosseum.

and you want your last act in life to be elected President of the United States,

Manthong's picture

Well heck,

It’s not as if she cannot step up to the plate or anything..

We need a strong leader that ducks out when necessary.

Joe Davola's picture

Either the double is booked or they don't trust whatever med they jack her up on to last through the events. She can't make it to the shale conference due to a scheduling conflict. I know the crowd wouldn't be very responsive to her, but she's having a lot of schedule conflicts these days.

jeff montanye's picture

if it wasn't for tim kaine and chelsea there wouldn't be much of a clinton campaign beyond ads.

and p.s. that temple university rally in philly was an audience mostly of a high school field trip covered by by the l.m. exclusively.


Manthong's picture

This is the strategy that a leader would employ with the horribly aggressive evil Russians.

Duck and hide because of illness.

Sorry, but with the best will of the world I can not see anything cross-eyed in that Hillary video.

I know it's hard, but you have to watch for more than 10 seconds.

Mike in GA's picture

Don't forget Jeb and Lady Lindsay, Kasich and Rubio...they're a big help, too, along with the Koch Bros.  And let's not forget William Kristol, Krauthammer and all the NeverTrumper Establishment GOPe "conservatives".

jeff montanye's picture

all of them will be on the outside looking in during the trump administration, should he not be assassinated.

and the "new" body double (not the one with the little girl on 9-11 but the hazel-eyed one at greensboro, n.c., who also looks thinner, younger and healthier; expect blue contacts soon) is analyzed below, as well as some unsourced but authoritative sounding (medically trained, vetting please) stuff from rense that says hillary is dying of sepsis at chelsea's.


if they try to use a double at the debates, trump should ask her a question only hillary would know, like those security questions about pets and high school mascots.

BabaLooey's picture

The rules should be;

No potty breaks

Lots of flash bulbs

No sitting - no leaning against the podiums.

2 hours straight.

Fainting allowed and no cut aways.

Dormouse's picture

She's the Make-a-Wish Foundation candidate.

jeff montanye's picture

she very well might be.  

if a blonde, apparently blue-eyed, older but healthy white woman shows up at the debates answering to the name hillary, she probably isn't.  if, however, she looks like death warmed over, she might be.

i hope they run the double at the debate.  that will be a lot of material for analysis and it may get them busted completely, especially if they try to say later she died of natural causes, if hillary is in fact dying.

imo, if hillary is dying or dead, an assassination, and sooner rather than later (the debate could go horribly wrong for them) is the best way from their point of view.  it kills two or three birds (and one, at least, for real) with one mossad false flag. it covers up all unexplained health problems, gets hillary in all her manifestations out of the way (i wonder if the 9-11 lady is still alive), as a martyr, and, whether tim, joe, michelle or even bernie, substitutes a far stronger candidate against trump.  

it's a real roll of the dice but 9-11 shows these people are high stakes players if they are anything.

i wonder if all this has been explained to the new body double lady.

  Imagine slick Willie smiling at ya as he asks "how did  my dick taste"? He probably says that to Huma every chance he gets.

Adrian Monk's picture

She already looks stuffed to me!

Manthong's picture

Who the F would be perverted enough to stuff her?

jeff montanye's picture

actually huma seems to be out of the picture lately.  there may not be the same "chemistry" with the body double lady.

lakecity55's picture

THAT is a key.

Humma would be sticking by her lover, not in the company of a Double.

Like the old USSR, you have to watch and see who is present in the background, who has been "airbrushed" out.

WillyGroper's picture

why, she'd make taxidermy vomit.

she wasn't look'n good.


Balanced Integer's picture

Nah. Hillary ain't been 'stuffed' since 9 months before Chelsea was born.

Look at the price tag to attend (which is an entire issue in itself) -the event was most likely canceled because nobody was willing to shill out that kind of money to fawn over a delusional looser.

Fisherman Blue's picture

Plenty of UNC shits have it.

Yukon Cornholius's picture

Cam Newton is probably the only dude in Carolina who could afford that type of event. Maybe Coach K too.

She must be on her deathbed. Waving cash under the nose of a Clinton works much like smelling salts.

In the case of Bill, a young pussy also works well.

What do you think that old fool needs all that cash for.

Ages 12-17

Over that, too old for the "Friend of Jeffery"

as to your suggestion about how to revive bill, he may not be alone in that regard.

On a scale of 1 - 10 . . . How old is Bill Clinton's girlfriend?
