Four planets in one night is great, but how about eight? You can see them all in a single night in the upcoming week -- if you play your cards right.
Liberal Logic, It Must be a Hate Crime
J.D. Martinez of the Boston Red Sox is being accused of racism because he supports the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Why? Because he made a social media post 5 years ago linking gun control to fascist dictatorships like that of Nazi Germany. Liberals can use Hitler comparisons to attack the Trump administration all they want, but if someone on the conservative side of things points out the truth that the Nazis disarmed people.

A Cloudy Picture In Connecticut
It may come as a surprise, but the Connecticut gubernatorial race is shaping up to be one of the most competitive in the country this fall. The first two public polls of the general election were released on Thursday. Even though, Ct is a traditionally Blue state, the low approval numbers for two-term Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-CT) give Republicans a fair shot in the upcoming race and a chance at gaining control of the Top Job in the capital.
The polls do show very different pictures of the race. One item the polls agreed on: Malloy is tremendously unpopular. Sacred Heart puts Malloy’s approval at 15.9 percent. More than half of Democrats (51.8 percent) disapprove of Malloy’s handling of his job as governor. Quinnipiac, meanwhile, puts Malloy’s approval at 25 percent, with more Democrats disapproving (48 percent) than approving (41 percent) of Malloy’s performance.
The poll from Sacred Heart University, shows the race within the margin of error: Lamont leads Stefanowski by 3.9 points, 40.8 percent to 36.9 percent.
Data indicated a tight race for the governorship is ahead in the coming months as, currently, 40.8% of Connecticut voters currently support Ned Lamont (D) for governor compared to 36.9% who support Bob Stefanowski (R). • Unaffiliated voters are currently divided as 29.8% support Ned Lamont (D) and 29.8% support Bob Stefanowski (R). In addition, another 27.3% of unaffiliated voters were undecided at the time of the poll. • A major gender gap exists as 49.3% of female voters support Ned Lamont (D) compared to 30.1% of female voters who support Bob Stefanowski (R). However, 43.9% of male voters support Bob Stefanowski (R) compared to 31.4% of male voters who support Ned Lamont (D). ❖ 29.8% of Connecticut voters have a “favorable” view of Ned Lamont (D), while 30.3% have a “favorable” view of Bob Stefanowski (R). However, the race will remain fluid as voters get to know more about the candidates. Currently, 44.4% of Connecticut voters “have not heard enough about” Bob Stefanowski (R) to form an opinion, and 41.6% report the same about Ned Lamont (D).
The other poll from Qunnipiac University, has Lamont up big, 46 percent to 33 percent.
In the Connecticut governor's race, Democrat Ned Lamont leads Republican Bob Stefanowski 46 - 33 percent, with 4 percent for independent candidate Oz Griebel and 1 percent for the Libertarian Party's Rod Hanscomb, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.
In a head-to-head matchup, Lamont tops Stefanowski 53 - 37 percent, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll finds.
In the four-way race, Lamont leads Stefanowski 50 - 27 percent among women. Men are divided with 40 percent for Lamont and 39 percent for Stefanowski. Democrats go to Lamont over Stefanowski 81 - 3 percent. Stefanowski leads Lamont 83 - 8 percent among Republicans and 37 - 30 percent among independent voters.
Connecticut voters give Lamont a 44 - 28 percent favorability rating. Stefanowski gets a divided 33 - 31 percent favorability rating, with 35 percent who haven't heard enough about him to form an opinion.
