Survey: Donald Trump Outpolls All GOP Candidates In NH Except Jeb Bush

Even though I would rather have a women as president, Donald Trump as president would be cool.

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency has been mocked as a publicity stunt, but a new poll suggests he’s gaining traction in New Hampshire.

According to a poll from the Suffolk University Political Research Center, 11 percent of GOP voters in New Hampshire support Trump, who finished second by just three points to the frontrunner, ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

“Jeb Bush continues to lead, but Donald Trump has emerged as an anti-Jeb Bush alternative in New Hampshire,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston, said in a statement. “Many of those who like Trump are voting for him, and although many more dislike him, the unfavorables are split up among many other candidates. It’s the politics of plurality.”

Expert: Despite Sinking Poll Numbers, Christie’s Style Could Work In Early-Primary States

Considering he is from my home town, I’m not surprised honestly. I mean he seems alright but I mean you gotta support your home town right?

CBS New York

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s approval rating has plunged into the 30s at home, but one political pundit notes the presidential primary season is all about sound bites and Christie can boast about union showdowns and re-election in a blue state.

Christie has reportedly hired new campaign staff in New Hampshire, where the Republican governor should play to his strengths, said Seton Hall Associate Political Science Professor Matthew Hale.

“There’s no better politician today at town hall meetings, and those are really, really important in New Hampshire and Iowa,” Hale told WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane. “So I think he’s got to do a lot of them, and he’s got to do them well.”

Bombshell on Broadway

bombshellmegan200

So who remembers the hit show SMASH from a few years back? Well for those of you who never saw the AMAZING show, featuring up-comming stars like Jeremy Jordan, is about a group of people producing a show called Bombshell which centers around the life of Marilyn Monroe. No show has ever been brought to Broadway a show that centers around Ms. Monroe, the iconic movie star in the white dress. Bombshell was a musical written for the TV show that is now OFFICIALLY BEING MADE INTO A REAL LIFE VERSION TO BE BROUGHT TO BROADWAY!

Clearly I’m very excited!

It has been announced that the people who choreographed the TV show version of the amazing production will reprise their roles as the show comes to Broadway stages. Nothing has been announced though in terms of cast. Many fans are hoping that the original show’s broadway cast returns, which I would be happy about! But Christian Borle was a star on this show, but as the writer in the TV series.

All of us fans have questions, but for the purposes of this blog, BOMBSHELL IS BEING MADE IN REAL LIFE FOR BROADWAY! Again, clearly, I’m very excited about this!
