Battleground Voters Who Chose Democrats in 2018 Leaning Toward Trump

Bad news for Democrats coming into the 2020 election cycle finds battleground state voters who voted Democrat in 2018 are supporting Trump.

Published

An article at the New York Times reveals more bad news for Democrats coming into the 2020 election cycle as battleground state voters who voted Democrat in 2018 are leaning toward supporting Donald Trump next year.

The Times has discovered that swing state voters who went for the Democrats in 2018 midterms plan to swing back to Trump in 2020.

This is even after months of Democrats beating the drum for impeachment, weeks of fake show trials, and the Democrat-controlled media proclaiming Trump a criminal every minute of every day.

“Nearly two-thirds of voters in six battleground states who voted for President Trump in 2016 — but for Democratic congressional candidates in 2018 — say they intend to back the president against each of his top rivals, according to recent polling,” the paper reported.

The states in question include Michigan and Wisconsin, two key states the Democrats need for electoral success in 2020. The two states also helped give Democrats the edge in last year’s midterms and helped give the Democrats control of the House of Representatives. Republicans suffered key losses in those states in 2018.

Democrats expected these battleground states to tip the 2020 presidential election — and others — in their favor, but these new polls now show that hope may be fleeting.

“This group is only a sliver of the electorate — 2 percent of registered voters — and is not representative of all voters. They are overwhelmingly white, 60 percent are male, and two-thirds have no college degree,” the Times reports. “But the president’s strength among them helps explain why he is highly competitive in states that Democrats carried just one year ago.”

The polls show that many swing voters in these states carefully consider their vote and are not necessarily beholding to parties. That is bad news to Democrats.

These voters also told pollsters that the media has been lying about Trump and that they don’t feel very upset over the things he has done that the media thinks are criminal acts.

One thing buoying voters in these polls is Trump’s roaring economy. It is this that is driving many of these swing voters to Trump because of their gratitude for the Trump’s great jobs climate. But his often rough behavior doesn’t bother them.

“He’s not exactly the person I’d have as my best friend,” one of these voters told the Times. “But he’s a great president. Most politicians just talk about doing things, but Trump does them.”

This is the armor Trump has against the Democrats. It seems less and less likely that the Democrats will be able to pierce that armor.

Democrats Toss Aside ‘Small Donor’ Loyalty to Court Big Biz as Biden Bombs

The event truly serves only one purpose, however:  Telegraphing the utter desperation of the Democratic Party in 2020. 

Published

on

We’ve all known for months now that Joe Biden is in some serious trouble as a 2020 candidate.

The former Vice President’s first Democratic sin was being someone other than Bernie Sanders.  You see, Sanders’ faithful followers are a rather large contingent within the Democratic Party itself, and when the Party stepped away from him, so did many of his followers.

Biden has also been a complete and utter mess out on the campaign trail.  His propensity for embarrassing gaffes isn’t anything new, but some of the things that have come out of his mouth in recent weeks are on an entirely new level of mental instability than we’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics.

Then, to top it all off, the former Vice President has been credibly accused of sexual assault by a former staffer, forcing many within the Democratic establishment to openly admit that they don’t actually care about the allegations, just so long as he can beat Donald Trump in November.

And that brings us to today, as it was revealed that Senator and former 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren is simply giving up on her earlier vow to court only small donors in 2020, and workin on a large, corporate fundraiser meant to keep Biden competitive.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren – who during her White House bid repeatedly forswore top-dollar fundraisers with wealthy donors – will host such a gathering for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden next month.

The move comes as the progressive senator from Massachusetts is considered one of the contenders to be the former vice president’s running mate.

The virtual fundraising event, which is scheduled to be held June 15 and was first reported by The New York Times, was confirmed by Fox News.

The event truly serves only one purpose, however:  Telegraphing the utter desperation of the Democratic Party in 2020.

Liberal Congresswoman Suggests Biden is Guilty of Sexual Assault, But That It Doesn’t Matter

This sickening hypocrisy is yet another reason why America is in the throes of a conservative awakening.

Published

on

As Donald Trump worked his way toward the White House back in 2016, there were an inordinate amount of claims being made against him – not the least of which was that he was a sexist who despised women.

This fervor was only accelerated by a bit of “locker room talk” that came to light between Trump and Billy Bush during a hot mic moment on the Access Hollywood bus, and that became the talk of the political ecosystem for years.  There are still Democratic operatives who like to pepper in talk of this incident today, nearly half a decade later.

But when it comes to Joe Biden being credibly accused of sexual assault, the left side of the aisle has been nearly silent.  When they do speak out about the allegations made by Tara Reade, they often do so in a dismissive tone.

Now, as if to up the ante on hypocrisy itself, freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has stated that she believes that Biden is guilty of sexual assault, but that she doesn’t think this is a disqualifying issue.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday said she will vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election while insisting that she believes his former Senate staffer Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault.

“Believing survivors is consistent with my values,” Omar wrote on social media. “Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”

With nowhere left for the Democrats to turn in terms of a candidate, one would imagine that a great many more Democrats will soon be attempting to walk this very same tightrope.

As Biden Continues to Stumble, Trump Unloads on His Mental Capacity

POTUS just unloaded on the former veep, as the Democrats continue to hesitate on replacing Biden on the 2020 ticket.

Published

We are invariably headed toward one of the wildest presidential elections in decades, as a Washington outsider prepares to electorally eviscerate one of the Washington swamp’s most notable elders.

For the Democrats, their plan is falling apart.  They saw Joe Biden as a hypothetical return to normalcy for the nation after 4 years of the bombastic, Beltway wrecking ball that Donald Trump represents.  The left believed that Trump was a flash in the pan, and that the nation would want to revert back to the status quo after his first term.

Spoiler alert:  They Don’t.  And, even if they did, the constant verbal stumbling of Joe Biden doesn’t inspire any sort of confidence.  If you take even a cursory look at Twitter these days, there are no shortage of tried and true Democrats calling for the former VP to be replaced on the 2020 ticket on account of his crumbling mental acuity.

President Trump is no longer beating around the bush, either.

When asked during a Sunday interview with WJLA what Biden’s strongest feature was as a political opponent, Trump noted that he could have said experience but explained why he did not think it was appropriate.

“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” Trump said. “So how is that experience? He’s been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.”

The Commander in Chief then went for the jugular.

The president then started by saying that Biden is “not mentally sharp enough to be president.” He then went on to say that the former vice president has problems with China and Russia, but then jumped back to attacking Biden’s intellect.

“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” Trump continued. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.”

The statement comes just days after Biden told a popular African American radio host that “you ain’t black” if you’re considering voting for Donald Trump – a gaffe that has sent shockwaves throughout the Americans political punditry.

Joe Biden Claimed Amazon Does Not Pay Enough Taxes, They Hilariously TORCH Him in Reply

Joe Biden claimed that online retail giant Amazon does not pay enough taxes. But the company struck back in a reply torching Biden for his idiocy.

Published

On Friday “Slow Joe” Biden claimed that online retail giant Amazon does not pay enough taxes. But the company struck back in a reply torching Biden for his idiocy.

Biden took a swipe at Amazon in a Tweet on Friday, claiming that the company does not pay “its fair share.”

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No company pulling in billions of dollars in profits should pay a lower tax rate than firefighters and teachers,” Biden tweeted. “It’s time for Amazon to pay its fair share.”

In his tweet, Biden linked to a CNBC story that reported his remarks given on Friday morning during an interview.

“I don’t think any company, I don’t give a damn how big they are, the Lord almighty, should absolutely be in a position where they pay no tax and make billions and billions and billions of dollars, No. 1,” Biden said in the interview. “The whole notion of this is: Are you playing the game fairly? What’s the capitalist system all about? The capitalist system is about everyone dealing fairly and dealing straight up with the American people and with their employees.”

This is a perfect example of Biden pandering to the anti-capitalist left.

But Amazon — run by huge Democrat donor Jeff Bezos — did not sit quietly by and let Joe get away with his attack on the company.

Amazon responded to Biden’s remarks saying: “Joe Biden, we pay every cent owed. You spent 3 decades in the Senate & know that Congress wrote these tax laws to encourage companies to invest in the US economy. We have. 500k jobs w/ a min wage of $15/hr across 40 states. Assume your complaint is w/ the tax code, not Amazon.”

Well, the company is 100 percent right on that one.

Joe Biden Unveils New Quest to Find Way to ‘Transport Wind’ Across America

If the Democrats continue with the nomination of Joe Biden, they deserve whatever they get in November.

Published

on

You can’t even make this stuff up anymore.

Joe Biden is losing it.  Even the most staunch Democrats are beginning to wonder if now is the time to pull the plug on his 2020 candidacy, as his nonstop stream of utter gibberish turns from funny to tragic right before our very eyes.

A few weeks ago, Biden told a female town hall attendee that she was a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.

If you thought that it couldn’t get any worse than that, Biden this week told a popular African American radio host that, if he was considering voting for Donald Trump, ‘you ain’t black’.

Now, as if things couldn’t get any weirder, the former veep is now yapping about how we need a system that can transport energy across the nation. 

Former Vice President and presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said in an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Friday that as president he would move away from domestic fossil fuel production and then went on to call for a nationwide system to distribute coal.

“I would gradually move out of the position of relying on oil and gas, excuse me, on coal,” Biden said. “No one is going to build another coal fired plant. Period. No matter what the law is.”

This sounds like a typical talking point of the eco-minded left.

Then, just a few moments later, Biden not only contradicted himself but also seemed to have forgotten about the nation’s railroads and the fact that wind occurs everywhere.

When host Joe Kernen asked Biden how he would preserve the high-paying jobs in the oil and gas industry, Biden did not directly answer the question. He said:

“We should become the net exporter of the new technology by investing the $40 billion in — the $400 billion I’m proposing in research and development for new ways to absorb carbon. New ways, you know, [to] make sure that we have a system nationwide that can transmit coal and wind across the country.

“But we’re not investing in those things Joe. We’re not investing in any of it. They all create jobs.

“And by the way, they don’t wind does not cause cancer. Windmills.”

If the Democrats continue with the nomination of Joe Biden, they deserve whatever they get in November.

GOP Senator Tim Scott Blasts Joe Biden for Outrageously Saying You Can’t Be Black Unless You Vote for Biden

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott slammed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden for his proclamation about blacks.

Published

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott slammed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden for his proclamation that you can’t be black unless you vote for Biden in coming election.

Scott, who is black, called Biden “arrogant” for his whitesplaning on who is allowed to be black and who is not.

Scott was incensed he heard Biden’s comments. The former vice president made the comments on Friday on the Breakfast Club radio broadcast co-hosted by rapper Charlamagne tha God.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne after the radio host said: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”

Scott was shocked by the comments.

“That is the most condescending, arrogant comment I’ve heard for a very long time. And that’s saying something,” the lawmaker told Fox Business host Stuart Varney, pointing out Biden’s history.

“The man who sponsored and led the charge on the 1990’s crime bill that locked up more African-American males than any other piece of legislation,” he said.

“And President Trump comes along, and through his criminal justice reform, corrects the absolute mistakes made by Joe Biden, for him to make such an arrogant, ridiculous comment,” he added.

“If you think about the numbers, 1.3 million African-Americans voted for Trump. He’s saying to 1.3 million African-Americans that you’re not black?” Scott asked. “Who in the heck does he think he is? That is the most arrogant, outrageous comment that I’ve heard in a very long time and I take offense to that.”

Later, in a tweet, Scott said it was “par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted.”

Biden Campaign Reeling After Former VP Says ‘You Ain’t Black’ if You’re Voting for Trump

If Joe Biden’s campaign wasn’t on life support before, it is now, and the former veep himself may be the one to pull the figurative plug.

Published

on

Joe Biden’s campaign has been on life support ever since he became the presumptive Democratic nominee for 2020.

It’s as though the Democratic Party immediately regretted their decision after Biden, who had been holding it together by a thin strand before capturing the nomination, went completely off the deep end.  His virtual campaign stops have been unabashed nightmares of cringeworthy moments and lots of honking geese.  (Someone in that campaign surely knows how to close a window, you would think).

Now, as if to make it a point to be the worst campaigner of the 21st century, Joe Biden has told African Americans that they “ain’t black” if they are considering voting for Donald Trump.

Joe Biden faced a swift backlash on Friday for suggesting during a contentious radio interview with host Charlamagne tha God that those having a hard time “figuring out” whether to support him or President Trump “ain’t black.”

The dustup occurred 17 minutes into the former vice president’s interview on “The Breakfast Club” – a nationally broadcast morning talk show popular with black listeners – when a Biden aide tried to end the interview, prompting the host to charge, “You can’t do that to black media.”

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee stressed that his wife had an upcoming engagement, and suggested he would have to go whether dealing with “white media” or “black media.”

“Uh, oh … I’m in trouble,” he joked as he referred to making his wife late. Biden and his wife Jill Biden share the same studio in the basement of their home in Wilmington, Del.

Then things took a seriously bizarre turn.

After Charlamagne tha God, who is black, then asked Biden to come back on the program again and the former vice president agreed, the host added, “It’s a long way to November. We’ve got more questions.”

That’s when Biden dove into a rapid-fire defense of his record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said.

If Joe Biden’s campaign wasn’t on life support before, it is now, and the former veep himself may be the one to pull the figurative plug.
