Examples of beating in a Sentence

  1. Jennifer Palmieri:

    I don't feel that level of discomfort. I don't see a lot of evidence of it. I see Hillary Clinton leading, beating every Republican in most national polls, the vast majority of national polls, in the coverage, it gets lost: She has the most money, and she's beating every Republican in most of the polls. So you can't really ask for much more than that.

  2. Ted Cruz:

    Donald does well with voters who have relatively low information, who are not that engaged and who are angry and they see him as an angry voice, where we are beating him is when voters’ get more engaged and they get more informed. When they inform themselves, they realize his record. He’s what they’re angry at. He is the corruption, and if you want someone to stand up to Washington, the only one who has been doing so in this race is me.

  3. Blake Shelton:

    All her music is about killing guys and burning their houses down and beating up people … that’s my wife! what do you want me to do? I’m not going to challenge her!

    I don't think there are any negatives that you can have from winning against someone that has won this event nine times and beating them in straight sets, i'm not buying that that can be negative in any way.

  5. Donald Trump:

    Did somebody tell ISIS, 'Look, we're going to treat your guys well. Will you please do us a favor and treat our guys well?' They don't do that. We're not playing by -- we are playing by rules, but they have no rules. It's very hard to win when that's the case, i think we've become very weak and ineffective. I think that's why we're not beating ISIS. It's that mentality.
