Trump Surging with Black and Hispanic Voters In Must-Win States

The data are showing that President Trump’s support among blacks and Hispanics is surging in critical states with less than 40 days until Election Day.

The data are showing that President Donald Trump’s support among blacks and Hispanics is surging in critical states with less than 40 days until Election Day.

This is noteworthy because all Trump needs to do is peel off a small number of minority voters in key states to beat any Democrat, much less Slow Joe Biden.

Recent polling is finally beginning to show that Trump is doing even better this year among minorities than he did in 2016. And in his previous election, he already had more minority support than previous Republicans.

According to American Greatness:

Trending: CDC Quietly Admits That Less than 10,000 Really Died from COVID-19

In Florida, an NBC/Marist poll conducted earlier this month showed President Trump with 50 percent of the Hispanic vote to Biden’s 46 percent. In 2016, Clinton won 62 percent of Hispanics compared to 35 percent for Trump. Trump is also outperforming 2016 with black Floridians. The same poll shows him with 11 percent support compared to 8 percent in the last election. If those numbers hold, Florida is simply unwinnable for Biden.

Polling in other states tells a similar story. A poll of 750 likely voters conducted for the Center for American Greatness in Nevada by Rasmussen Reports shows Biden leading Trump by just a single point (49 percent to 48 percent). As in Florida, Trump is running strong with Hispanics, getting 47 percent support to Biden’s 49 percent.

For comparison, Trump got 29 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2016 to Hillary Clinton’s 60 percent. The poll also shows Trump with 41 percent of the black vote. Interestingly, he also ran stronger among bin Nevada in 2016 than he did nationally, so this is a continuation of that trend.

These numbers are important in many ways.

Trump already has a good chance of once again winning Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina. Democrats have wisps of hope in these states, but it seems likely that Trump will still win them.

Another set of key states are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Trump lost Minnesota, but just barely. And he barely won the other three.

The point here is that if Trump again wins the first three states, the Democrats must make a big sweep of the second four mentioned. But that is already seeming unlikely, especially with his growing numbers among minority voters.

All this means that if enough black and Hispanic voters cross over into Trump territory, it could make all the difference in all seven of these states by leeching just enough of Biden’s votes away from him to give Trump the close margins he needs to win.

This all has to be very worrisome to the Democrats.

Early Voting Trends Show Democrats Falling Behind in Battleground States

The latest look at the early voting numbers shows that Democrats are unexpectedly falling behind their targets in 3 of 4 key battleground states.

Published

The latest look at the early voting numbers shows that Democrats are unexpectedly falling behind their targets in 3 of 4 key battleground states.

It has always been assumed that Democrats vote early in bigger numbers and that Republicans then turn out big on Election Day to vote in person. But if the numbers being seen now follow past trends, the Democrats may be in trouble because the current numbers show that Democrats do not have the big early voting edge they had in 2016.

Per The Hill, it doesn’t seem to be working out for the leftist party:

Forbes polling indicates that roughly half of all voters plan to vote early, with 62 percent of Democrats planning to vote early while 72 percent of Republicans plan to wait and vote on Election Day. If that happened and independents split evenly (last time Trump won them), then Democrats would need to win early voting at least 70 percent to 30 percent to be on pace to barely overcome a 31 percent to 69 percent disadvantage in partisan Election Day votes.

The Elect Project indicates Democrats are only hitting that mark in one of four battleground states where data on the partisan breakdown of early voters is available.

The paper goes on to claim that only Pennsylvania shows the Dems hitting their mark as currently 79 percent of Democrats have voted early while only 21 percent of Republicans have.

However, the same is not true in other key states. The Democrats are short in Iowa (63-37), Florida (Dems only have a 57 percent edge), and Nevada (Dems 58 to GOP 42). According to the formulas, the Democrats would need 72 percent in each of these states, but they are way, way short of that target.

It still looks like this election is going to be close, America. You Republicans MUST get yourselves and your friends to the polls.

Don’t assume Trump will win.

VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.

U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Wisconsin Democrats’ Demand to Keep Counting Ballots Beyond Election Day

The Trump campaign just won a huge victory in Wisconsin when the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a vote-counting demand from Wisconsin Democrats.

Published

The Trump campaign just won a huge victory in Wisconsin when the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a demand from Wisconsin Democrats to force the state to keep counting votes for days after Election day.

The high court shot down a Wisconsin judge’s order to allow the state to continue counting late ballots for weeks after Election Day. The SCOTUS ruled that the Wisconsin legislature was the only authority permitted to make election rules, not district judges and their Democrat activist pals.

The decision was 5 to 3 with the court’s hardcore liberals dissenting.

Per Just The News:

“No one doubts that conducting a national election amid a pandemic poses serious challenges. But none of that means individual judges may improvise with their own election rules in place of those the people’s representatives have adopted,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the majority opinion.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote a concurring opinion, just days after siding with the liberals in a different opinion involving Pennsylvania. “In this case, as in several this Court has recently addressed, a District Court intervened in the thick of election season to enjoin enforcement of a State’s laws. Because I believe this intervention was improper, I agree with the decision of the Seventh Circuit to stay the injunction pending appeal.

In a dissent, Justice Elena Kagan criticized the majority ruling as a health risk. “As the COVID pandemic rages, the Court has failed to adequately protect the Nation’s voters,” she wrote.

It is a shock that the now fully left-wing John Roberts made such a proper ruling, but it is a good one, just the same.

Judges and activists do not make election law.

Period.

Democrats Planning Their Post-Election Rioting and Targeting Whites for Violence

Liberals are openly announcing their post-election campaign of rioting, violence, and attacks on whites.

Published

Liberals are openly announcing their post-election campaign of rioting, violence, and attacks on whites because it appears they are now assuming Trump will win his re-election.

A new editorial at Issues & Insights notes that the left is planning a huge campaign of violence and unrest starting on Election Day, November 3. They intend to completely destroy America on that day and the days after. And you can bet people are going to die.

Liberal activist groups such as the terror groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter, are being joined by new groups, including one called “Shutdown DC,” in planning riots for Election Day because they think Trump will win.

As I&I notes, they are working from a particular premise:

Get that? “In the streets before the polls even close,” means mass intimidation and instilling public fear. The left’s imagined bogeyman? A Trump “coup,” which, of course, in their fevered imaginations means any Trump victory at all.

“Trump has shown that he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power. Trump will not leave office without mass mobilization and direct action,” the group says. Expect riots.

I&I also notes that it isn’t just the hardcore, anarchists either:

Lest you think this is will happen at the fringes, think again. Even the supposed “mainstream” Democrats have plans to make Republicans miserable, especially if the GOP wins.

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, now working a gig in — where else? — far-left academia, proposes a re-education program if Biden is elected.

“When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe,” Reich tweeted on Oct. 17.

“Regardless, it’s clear the left’s plans don’t include peace of mind for America’s voters on Nov. 4, the day after the election. Or “bringing the country together.” Rather, they see unending turmoil, political anger and rage, street protests, riots, litigation, and, if they win, retribution for those who dare to disagree,” I&I concludes.

Folks, Democrats are un-American. Not just some of them. All. Of. Them.

Youtube Interferes in Election by Labeling as ‘False’ the Truth That Biden Said He’d Ban Fracking

Google-owned Youtube has just gone all-in to elect Joe Biden by pushing a fake “fact-check” that claims Joe Biden never said he would ban fracking.

Published

Google-owned Youtube has just gone all-in to elect Joe Biden as president by pushing a fake “fact-check” that claims Joe Biden never said he would ban fracking.

During the primaries, Biden repeatedly said he would ban fracking. And so did his VP candidate Kamala Harris.

But Youtube is pushing the lie that Biden never said it.

Per Breitbart News:

Searches for “Joe Biden fracking” and “Biden fracking” currently return a prominently-featured “fact check,” positioned above the list of videos.

The first result in the search results is a clip of Biden and Trump’s exchange on fracking during the second presidential debate, in which the Democrat candidate said his administration would “transition away from the oil industry.”

“The oil industry pollutes, significantly. It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time,” said Biden.

The second result in a YouTube search for “Joe Biden fracking” is a video of Biden attempting to walk back the comments at a recent live event, insisting he is not “banning fracking.”

But the truth is, Biden said he would ban fracking over ad over again over the past year.

FACT CHECK: Biden Lied When He Said He Never Oppose Fracking

During the presidential debate, Democrat Joe Biden tried to rewrite history and claimed he never said he wants to ban fracking. He simply lied.

Published

on

During Thursday’s final presidential debate, Democrat nominee Joe Biden tried to rewrite history and claimed he never said he wants to ban fracking. The truth is, he simply lied.

At one point during the October 22 debate, President Trump hammered Joe Biden over his conflicting statements about fracking. The president first brought fracking up during his discussion about healthcare.

“You’re going to have socialized medicine,” Trump said before segueing to fracking. “Just like you went on with fracking — ‘We’re not going to have fracking, we’re going to stop fracking, we’re going to stop fracking.’ Then he goes to Pennsylvania after he gets the nomination — well he got very lucky to get it. And he goes to Pennsylvania, and he says, ‘Oh, we’re gonna have fracking.’ And you never asked a question. And by the way, so far, I respect very much the way you’re handling this, I have to say. But by the way, somebody should ask the question. He goes for a year…”

Joe ignored the comment. But Trump was not done. Close to the end of the debate, Trump asked Joe’s position of fracking one more time, saying, “We’re gonna have the greatest economy in the world. But if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry. You want– And what about fracking?”

To that Biden said directly. “I have never said I oppose fracking.” Then he said that Trump was “flat out lying” about Joe’s past proclamations about fracking.

But Trump pressed again: “Would you rule out banning fracking?”

That resulted in this exchange:

BIDEN: I do rule out banning fracking because the answer we need– We need other industries to transition to get to, ultimately, a complete zero emissions by 2025. What I will do with fracking over time is make sure that we can capture the emissions from the fracking. Capture the emissions from gas. We can do that and we can do that by investing money into– It’s a transition to that.

TRUMP: Excuse me. He was against fracking. He said it. I will show that to you tomorrow. ‘I am against fracking’, until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania than he said– You know what, Pennsylvania? He’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.

BIDEN: Fracking on federal Land, I said. No fracking or oil on federal land.

Biden lied, and even CNN had to note that “It’s false that Biden never said he opposed fracking.”

“In 2019, Biden said ‘we would make sure it’s eliminated’ when asked about the future of coal and fracking; in 2020 he said he opposed ‘new fracking,'” CNN added.

Biden absolutely said that he would end fracking before he said he now supports it. It is a “flat out lie” to say he never opposed it.

But there is another point to this. A U.S. president has absolutely no authority to ban fracking. It would take an act of congress to do that, and it is one that would probably lose in a court challenge. However, a president can impose punishing EPA regulations to make fracking untenable. Those may also face an unsure outcome in court.

Maryland Biden Supporter Fires Shots at Two Men in Truck with Trump Flag

A Kingsville, Maryland, man who was putting Joe Biden signs in his front yard opened fire on a Truck driving by his home because the vehicle had a Trump sign.

Published

On Sunday, a Kingsville, Maryland, man who was putting Joe Biden signs in his front yard opened fire on a Truck driving by his home because the vehicle sported a Trump sign.

Police arrested the homeowner, 50-year-old Douglas Edward Kuhn, for the unprovoked attack on the truck that was simply driving by his home as he placed yet another Biden sign on his property.

The victims turned out to be Bradley Lang, a member of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee, and his father. Lang wrote of the incident in a Facebook post:

On Saturday afternoon, my father, Neal Houk, and I were in Kingsville driving home after building a wooden frame for and installing a Republican political sign to put in the bed of his truck. As we turned onto Mt Vista Rd from Cedar Ln. we saw a man on a corner property that had many political signs, mostly for Joe Biden. He was tending to one of these signs as we drove by and the horn was honked in a friendly manner. The man then picked up a shotgun from the ground next to him and ran towards the fence aiming the gun at the truck. We were in shock that anyone would point a gun at a moving vehicle with two people in it, as we looked directly down the barrel. We never stopped or even slowed down the truck but after we drove about 100 feet he fired the shotgun in our direction. Thankfully he missed the shot. We drove to safety and immediately called the police. Later in the day my father and I were taken separately to identify the man who was then driven away in handcuffs.

Lang added that he and his father were shaken by the incident but were not injured by the gunfire.

I want to thank everyone who has reached out so far. Everyone is safe and unharmed on our end. To anyone who hasn’t been…

The police reported that Kuhn is being held without bond.

MASSIVE 30-Mile Trump Caravan with THOUSANDS of Cars Pops Up in Arizona

Amazing Trump parades have sprung up in every state, but the most amazing one thus far occurred in the battleground state of Arizona.

Amazing Trump parades have sprung up in every state, but the most amazing one thus far occurred in the battleground state of Arizona where a caravan stretching 30 miles and consisting of thousands of vehicles popped up near Phoenix.

By contrast, there have been zero Biden caravans.

In any case, the Trump parade in Phoenix is the biggest one yet and took place last Saturday ahead of the president’s visit to Arizona, KSAZ-TV reported.

Arizona Republican Congresswoman Debbie Lesko shared video of the parade on Twitter, writing, “Today I was driving on I-17 in Phoenix and I came across an AWESOME caravan parade for President @realdonaldtrump! Arizona loves Trump and we’re ready to reelect him in November! #FOURMOREYEARS.”

The event’s organizer was awed by the parade.

“It’s overwhelming and profound to see the support and the compassion and love for this president,” Theresa Montoya told KPHO-TV. “This has taken a life of its own. We have a common goal and that’s to get the president elected for four more years.”
