And people were surprised that Trump won 52 percent of white women in 2016.

I wonder why?
:lol:

WAIT!

I thought Trump was hated by women. That is what they tell me on the "telly" and why there is going to be a blue wave.

My bold emphasis above.


Here is an opinion piece from a woman (a Democrat) who didn't vote for Trump in 2016, but (my guess based on her article) would possibly vote for him if the 2020 election were today:

How Spygate Is Turning Democrats Like Me Against Our Party

I was a long-time Democrat who 'walked away' from the party because I couldn’t stomach the Democrats’ anti-democratic antics.


By Saritha Prabhu
AUGUST 3, 2018

I don’t much like Donald Trump and didn’t vote for him (or Hillary) in 2016, but I’ve been feeling sorry for him for about 18 months now. It feels strange feeling sorry for someone who’s a boor, a narcissist, an egomaniac, and a serial philanderer, plus the 37 other negative traits usually used to describe him. But it has something to do with the fact that he has been treated in a grossly unfair manner by the mainstream media and the political and cultural left, on a scale we’ve never seen before.

One story of the last two years is how this most alpha of alpha males has become an underdog of sorts in American politics today. Of course, you won’t find this narrative in any of the mainstream media outlets. This narrative merely exists in the minds of millions of voters who are outside the core Democratic base: those of us who are Republicans, moderates, independents, former Democrats like myself. We’ve been silently watching, listening, observing the opposition to Trump in the last eighteen months, and it’s been the most sickening thing to see, more appalling than what the right did to President Obama.

As one voter put it in an article I read a while ago, the hatred shown toward Trump has been “un-American.” I agree with that sentiment, even as I simultaneously hold the thought that Trump is not someone whose character needs defending.

Memo to the left: Know why Trump’s poll numbers have been steady or rising slightly in spite of the invective you’ve been pouring on him every minute of every day? It’s because the economy is booming, and also because most Americans are fair-minded and think that even a flawed sinner like Trump doesn’t deserve to be figuratively kicked every day in a manner that’s often dishonest, exaggerated or out-of-context.

Trump ran as the most anti- of anti-establishment candidates in 2016, and almost everything the political and media establishments have done since then have confirmed what millions of voters have realized: these establishments are out-of-control, they want presidential candidates and presidents they can control, and they won’t abide a true outsider.

In effect, their post-election behavior has confirmed that a President Trump was necessary for this time in American politics. The reality is, there was no peaceful transition of power on Jan. 20, 2017. From the time Trump won the Republican nomination, there has been a concerted effort from different quarters – the press, Hollywood, academia, the Democratic Party – to smear and undermine him.

Some of this was legitimate and what naturally happens in an election. But a lot of the opposition to him was breathtaking and unprecedented, and we’ve been learning more as time passes by. The highest levels of the FBI secretly spied on his campaign, and they did it by misleading the FISA court and using an unverified dossier paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

And the unprecedented opposition continued with a fake Russia collusion narrative and a dubious special counsel investigation to undermine and possibly remove a duly elected president elected by the masses whom the establishment happens not to like. If they are successful, we don’t have a constitutional republic anymore, folks. It’s that simple.

I was a long-time Democrat who “walked away” from the party because I couldn’t stomach the Democrats’ anti-democratic antics. Post-2017, it is like the mask has been ripped off. It has become apparent that the Democratic Party and its media supporters seem to have a problem with representative democracy and how it works. They lost an election they thought they’d handily win, and their reaction to it has been to have a long, screeching public tantrum.

Bill Maher and other liberal commentators have openly talked about the urgent necessity to “remove” Trump. Remove Trump? Are they serious? I thought the way it works if you lose an election is you try to present a better argument before the electorate the next time and win the next election, and not simply try to get rid of the election-winner.

In the last eighteen months, the left, the so-called deep state and their media enablers have tried their damnedest to get rid of Trump even if it meant trampling over the rule of law and the Constitution. That is why those who used to care deeply about civil liberties have been mum when the civil liberties of Trump, Carter Page and others have been violated.

That is why one of the only principled liberal, Prof. Alan Dershowitz, who has been arguing about and defending the civil liberties of the Trump team, has been getting grief and facing ostracism from the left. That is why the mainstream media has not only derelicted its investigative duties, but has been shamelessly spinning one of the biggest stories of our time — how the FBI abused its power to spy on an American political campaign.

The striking thing is, the side that has been accusing Trump of subverting democracy has been guilty of it themselves. In America, even a serial killer has rights and deserves due process. But in the eyes of the left, Trump deserves neither.

But the public isn’t dumb. Those of us who aren’t hardcore Democrats recognize what’s going on and have come to see something that seems counter-intuitive: This loud, brash president is actually a victim and an underdog in American politics today, and he hasn’t been getting a fair shake since he won the election, or been given a proper chance to lead the country.


And so we feel sorry for him, and angry and repulsed by his opposition.

Interesting theory this kid has on welfare and communism.

I think that he got his economics degree at the same place Candidate Ocasio-Cortez did.

Well, it IS a catchy tune . . . once you get it in your head, there may be no real way to get it out . . .

The massive failure of Democratic Socialists in yesterday's primaries
By Rick Moran
If Democratic Socialists are "the future" of the Democratic party, they had better get used to losing – a lot.

Every single candidate endorsed by celebrity Democratic Socialist politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was beaten by establishment Democrats in yesterday's primaries. And not just beaten – they were, in most cases, slaughtered.


The blood on the floor in Democratic precincts across the Midwest is Democratic Socialist blood.

American Mirror:

Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan's 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri's 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.

Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.

Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.

Hawaii's primary election will be August 11. Stay tuned to see if Ing fairs [sic] any better.

WaPo's David Weigel describes the Democratic primary winners as "centrists." In truth, they may be in the center of the Democratic Party, but when it comes to the rest of the country, they are still far-left.

The party's centrists, who had bemoaned Crowley's defeat, saw Tuesday night as a turning point. Whitmer, who ran on her record of expanding Medicaid in Michigan – and a memorable promise to "fix the damn roads" – will now lead an all-female ticket in a swing state that Hillary Clinton narrowly lost.

Candidates backed by Emily's List, which endorses women and sometimes clashes with the left, bested left-wing challengers in three southeast Michigan districts; at least two are seen as toss-ups in November. Early Tuesday evening, just one Sanders-backed candidate in a competitive primary was in the lead; Brent Welder, a labor lawyer running in Kansas's 3rd Congressional District, benefited from a crowd of five less-liberal candidates who split the vote.

"This is a fantastic night for centrist Democrats," said Jim Kessler, senior vice president for policy at the center-left Third Way think tank. "We nominated the right candidates who can win House seats and governor's mansions for the Democratic Party. There's a quiet enthusiasm in the middle. There's a quiet voice that people are not hearing in the media, but it's loud at the ballot box."

The party's left flank, meanwhile, has bristled at suggestions that it's spoiling anything for 2018. Since winning her primary, Ocasio-Cortez campaigned for Democrats in California, Kansas, Michigan and Missouri; she also addressed liberal activists at Netroots Nation, the movement's largest annual conference, held this year in New Orleans.

Despite the stinging defeats of the radicals, it is largely their agenda that "establishment" Democrats are running on. "Medicare for all" will be a litmus test for less radical Dems, which, considering its price tag of $32.6 trillion over ten years, is a GOP dream come true. If these Democrats want the activists to turn out on election day, they must at least pay lip service to the socialist agenda.

This will almost certainly cut into whatever gains Democrats will make in the fall. They may still take over the House, given the number of open Republican-controlled seats that will be up for grabs (40). But any chance of a "blue wave" is fading as fast as the Democratic Socialists' electoral prospects.

If Democratic Socialists are "the future" of the Democratic party, they had better get used to losing – a lot.

Too bad. I wish every socialist had won their primary race.

The thing is, these people don't get out and mix with other people who share less kooky views. The real world is not like Portlandia. It's satirical. Just because everyone at the Karl Marx Coffee House where you get your shade-grown, fair-traded coffee thinks like you does NOT mean the people that actually have real jobs do.

Ocasio-Cortez reminds me of the girl from Legally Blonde without the high heels and poodle.

Ohio 12th district has 112 registered voters OVER 116 years of age and 72 of them voted in the election. :lol:

I'm going to guess that some of them were "mail in " ballots. Fraud doesn't exist, you understand.

Quote:
Republican Troy Balderson clings to a narrow margin in last night’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional district, underscoring the impact voter fraud can have in key elections around the country.
The separation of 1700 votes, or less than one percent, highlights the recent attempt by Democratic activists to fight efforts to prevent voter fraud from occurring.




For the past four years, George Soros has spent millions of dollars trying to weaken Ohio’s election security by funding efforts to both block its implementation of Voter ID and prevent the state from removing inaccurate registrations.





Soros pledged $5 million to fund Clinton campaign attorney Marc Elias’s efforts to fight voter ID laws in Ohio and two other states ahead of the 2016 election. Elias would file that suit in Ohio on behalf of several groups, including the Ohio Organizing Collaborative, that would have an employee sentenced to prison for voter fraud.



In 2016, liberal activist groups Demos and the ACLU filed suit against the state of Ohio in an attempt to stop its efforts to remove inaccurate voter registrations from its rolls. Soros gave 1.25 million to Demos in 2016, on top of the more than $3 million he had given in previous years. And Soros has been even more generous with the ACLU, giving over $35 million for Trump related lawsuits.

Ultimately, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ohio’s efforts in a 5-4 decision earlier this year.

But even with voter ID and cleansed voter rolls, there are still problems with Ohio elections.

Consider that 170 registered voters listed as being over 116 years old still existed on the rolls of Ohio’s 12th Congressional when GAI accessed the data last August. That’s 10 percent of Balderson’s current margin of victory, pending provisional ballots. And 72 voters over the age of 116 who “live” in Balderson’s district cast ballots in the 2016 election.

But the Left hasn’t given up trying to create conditions favorable for voter fraud in Ohio. As former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell has pointed out, “hyper-partisan liberals…have their eyes on Ohio.” Electing a Democrat as the state’s top elections official would undoubtedly roll back the hard-won safeguards Ohio has implemented. And as Blackwell points out, as goes Ohio, so goes the Presidency.

Eric Eggers is the research director at the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and the author of the new book Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election.
