Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Guess what story wont be the lead on CNN or above the fold on the front page of the New York Times this morning. If you guessed the special elections in two North Carolina congressional districts?, you would be right:
Why all the long faces, CNN?
The reason this story will now be downplayed and quickly dropped, of course, is that Republicans won both by comfortable margins. That was expected to be the case in congressional district 3, which is a very safe GOP district and where the Republican candidate was not burdened by any controversy, and the Democrats hadnt poured millions of dollars in out-of-state money into the race. So, the 24-point winning margin by Republican Greg Murphy came as no surprise to anyone. Well, actually, it was a bit of a surprise since
But CD9 was a different story. There, the Republican candidate, Dan Bishop, faced a huge influx of Democrat money coming in from New York and California to back Democrat Dan McReady, who had narrowly lost the race to another Republican, Mark Harris, in 2018. But Harris became the rarest of rare animals in U.S. politics a Republican who got caught committing voter fraud in that race.
North Carolina elections officials ruled that the seat would remain unfilled until a special election could be held. Our fake national news media, led by CNN and the NY Times, eagerly anticipated what they all felt would be a Democrat win for McReady in CD9. Surely, they all reasoned, reciting the exact same DNC-approved talking points each and every day for the past month, the burden of the evil Orange Man in the White House and the scandal left behind by Harris would be too much for Bishop to overcome. Surely, McReady would be able to find enough voters in the districts cemeteries and bus in voters from other states to win the day.
But no, in the end, even though the final polls in the race showed McReady even or with a slight lead, Bishop prevailed by almost 4,000 votes. The final blow in Bishops favor seemed to be the decision by President Donald Trump to fly in on Monday night and hold a raucus rally to boost voter enthusiasm for Bishop.
So today, you will see some perfunctory reporting on the results of these two Republican victories, and then the fake news media will drop the story like a hot potato. Because that is what our fake national news media does.
For the GOP, the outcomes of these two races represents very encouraging news. North Carolina has been trending in a bad direction for the past 20 years, as it has become a favored landing spot for New Yorkers fleeing the confiscatory tax policies of that state. All of the experts based in New York and D.C. fully expected that trend to continue in these races.
But what we saw instead is very troubling news for the Democrats and their media toadies. One big example came in Cumberland County, home of the city of Fayetteville. In 2016, that was a Democrat stronghold, with Hillary Clinton winning it by 16% of the vote over Donald Trump. On Tuesday, Bishop actually won that county by slightly less than 1%.
Robeson County, heavily-populated by the Lumbee Indian Tribe, went to McReady by 15% of the vote in 2018. Last night, Bishop came within 1% of actually winning the county, and the Lumbee-dominated precincts actually went to Bishop.
None of these results were expected in the DNC/Fake news media talking points, and help to explain all the long faces you saw if you watched the coverage on CNN and MSNBC last night. It was just one more race in which the polls were wrong, the experts were wrong and the talking points were wrong.
Couldnt happen to a more deserving bunch of people.
That is all.
“Couldnt happen to a more deserving bunch of people.”
If they are upset now, wait till the see Prez Trump ‘46’. Hopefully.
The Marxist Media is already spinning it as actually a loss. lol
Yeah, Dems don’t know how bad this is. McCready lost:
1) With more than a year of exposure than Bishop
2) After a huge election fraud scandal that demonized his R opponent
3) In an area where most of the counties are blue.
1) Bishop beat him with thousands more votes than Harris did
2) Bishop flipped several counties red
3) Bishop GAINED votes from Meck county after the initial EV surge.
The blue wave has receded considerably, probably because of the implosion of Russiagate.
Republicans in DC and the President are working hard to make sure that does not happen by continually talking about background checks and other unconstitutional gun control.
President Trump needs to stop the gun control talk with a simple statement. Gun control is ineffective against crime, it's unconstitutional and IT'S OFF THE TABLE. Our President needs to take the lead instead of being led by McConnel and Pelosi. Failure to take the lead and take gun control off the table is going to result in President Trump being a one term anomaly.
The polls weren't wrong, they were fake. Wrong polls would break 50/50 to either side. Fake polls always favor the Democrats.
“Whoops!” - DNC
The only time I ever watch CNN is on election nights where Republicans are winning. So fun to watch them suffer. They cannot hide their disappointment.
In fact they are now reporting “shock polls”, 6 demokrap candidates beating Trump in Texas. Time to move on from NC.
That poll was taken by Univision, and probably conducted solely in the 5th Ward of Houston.
Yes, I tuned in to CNN for about 10 seconds this morning and all they were going on about is their new fake poll of President Trumps approval rating is down to 39% and how bad the economy is and we’re ready to go into a recession.... my in-laws listen to them all the time and believe it is all gospel.... my husband and I just shake our heads
In fact they are now reporting shock polls, 6 demokrap candidates beating Trump in Texas.
As I recall, the polls had hillary winning Texas by a lot.
This election should not have been even this close, but the results show that more and more Americans are awakening to the danger that the decadence of Western Civilization threatens, as those afflicted by it descend deeper and deeper into depravity.
Yes, it was a referendum on President Trump:
A man with 50+ years' experience building a multibillion dollar international financial empire! Who is not only a genius but an expert on business, economics, and finance!Even as he is opposed and vilified by the powerful American "news media," academic institutions, celebrities, and the Democrat Party.
Who gave up the luxurious lifestyle of a multibillionaire to save the USA from those who hate it and intend to destroy it and from the decadence of Western Civilization!
Who has made the US economy BOOM! with 6.2 million people off food stamps, record unemployment, including the highest unemployment in Black America in history!
Whose announced objective is the revitalization and the prosperity of America's inner cities!
Who donates his presidential salary to charity!
Whose super-rich children work as hard as anyone and have stable, happy lives!
Who loves the USA and believes in the American Dream!
Whose rallying cry is "Make America Great!"
There have even been open calls for his assassination and the destruction of his family, an expression of the madness and deprivation of the worst of his opponents.
The fierce opposition to him is a measure of how deep into the depths of madness and deprivation those who oppose him have descended.
The support of his candidates in North Carolina reveals the health and moral clarity of the majority of Americans.
If it is true in North Carolina, it is true all over America.
I managed to watch CNN’sDon Lemon for about 1 minute last night after the great Bishop/Murphy/Trump victory - and he had some nauseating talking head on there poo pooing the election and talking about how the Repubs should have won the Bishop election easily, etc, yada yada yada.
Could only take a minute of this idiocy.
I NEVER watch CNN or MSNBC. My local NBC affiliate, WRAL TV is not much better. Their news people were obviously saddened last night - especially the female anchor.
I switched to Fox after 11:15 PM and they actually had Bishop on there for an interview and did a decent job of reporting on the victory.
The best reporting of the election was right here on FR as usual - right here:
Thank you for that great summation.
I noticed that the Today Show completely skipped reporting on the NC special elections this morning.
I saw a headline this morning on CNN that is was a “narrow” margin. So I figured that wasn’t the case.
The left wing legacy media is soo predicable.
