  • 'Thousands Upon Thousands' Welcome Trump in...California

    President Trump’s supporters are so enthusiastic that “thousands upon thousands” of them greeted the commander in chief in the deep-blue state of California on Sunday, according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. Supporters lined the streets for miles, McEnany said on Twitter, as the president drove toward the home of Palmer Luckey, the co-founder of Oculus, for a fundraising event in Newport. “Thousands upon thousands lined for miles along our motorcade route in CALIFORNIA to cheer on President @realDonaldTrump!!!!!” she said.

    Robert Barnes explains how bad the polls are. As well as being an attorney, Barnes has wagered on elections for decades. He has never been wrong on a presidential election. In 2016 he won 500k betting on Trump. He puts his money where his mouth is. Ignore the polls and focus on the election fundamentals.

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | 9/8/2020 | LISA DONOVAN
    The nation’s largest police union, along with its Chicago chapter, has endorsed Republican President Donald Trump’s reelection bid, potentially helping to boost his law-and-order message. While the endorsement might have been expected, it further illustrates a division between law enforcement and protesters who for months have railed against police brutality and called for racial justice after the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. The endorsement isn’t likely to hold much sway for Trump in heavily Democratic Chicago, but John Catanzara, president of the local FOP and an outspoken Trump backer, is happy to antagonize the likes...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/15/2020 | Silvio Canto Jr.
    On Tuesday night, I went to bed cheering the Wisconsin results but wondering if "ballot harvesting" would erase Mike Garcia's lead in California. On Wednesday, we got the good news that the lead was just too big to steal. Mike Garcia beat Christy Smith by double digits. In other words, a conservative GOP Hispanic candidate beat a very liberal Democrat in a district that went for Hillary by seven points in 2016. So do we say hello to the red wave of 2020? I don't think so, but we do say be careful about buying into the anti-Trump wave of...

    WASHINGTON - House lawmakers are readying to campaign in the post-impeachment landscape, with Democrats eager to focus on policy issues and Republicans planning to attack swing-district Democrats for voting to remove a president whom many of their constituents support. Democrats plan to defend the majority, and specifically their 30 seats in districts that Mr. Trump won in 2016, by discussing the issue that gave them the gavel in 2018: lowering health-care costs. Lawmakers expect to stay far away from talking about the two articles of impeachment the House passed against the president in December. Republicans, meanwhile, will largely embrace running...

    Midterms: You’ve heard it for a year or more now as campaigning for today’s midterm elections began last fall: The party in power always loses seats during the midterm elections. But will that happen today? When all is said and done, will Republicans suffer the same fate as Democrats did in 2010 and 2014? Or will POTUS Donald Trump’s madcap campaign pace keep the House and Senate red, as well as several gubernatorial races around the country?

    A big political gambler I met in Las Vegas in 2016 is in London betting that the Republican Party will keep control of the US Congress. Robert Barnes is essentially wagering that US pollsters haven’t fixed any of the problems that led them astray during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barnes, a trial lawyer, lives in Las Vegas, but he has to travel to the British Isles to wager on US politics since it’s not allowed in the US. The bookies know him as a high roller; the political betting team at Ladbrokes even tweeted his photo to mark his arrival...

    President Trump’s rally Monday on the eve of the midterm election in Cleveland, Ohio reportedly has an even bigger crowd than Trump drew in 2016 at the exact same venue. The Daily Mail’s U.S. political editor David Martosko said Monday afternoon that the crowd in Cleveland is “already much bigger” than it was when Trump held a rally two weeks before election day in 2016 at the same venue:

    Two days before American voters head to the polls for this year’s mid-term elections, there are growing signs the long-awaited “Blue Wave” could fail to materialize, says the leader of the Republican Party’s overseas office in Israel. A US-born attorney now living in Gush Etzion south of Jerusalem, Marc Zell, 65, is Vice President of Republicans Overseas, and chief of Republicans Overseas Israel. […] “When it comes to mid-term elections, the traditional wisdom in the United States is the party in power loses seats in both the Senate and the House. Because the difference between Republicans in the Senate, for...

    The blue wave is now a bygone figment of a liberal Hollywood fantasy. Voter excitement is clearly with the Republican Party and President Donald Trump! There is a Red Wave Rising! One pundit, Michael E. Newton, has been tracking the 2018 mid-term election data to date. He addresses people’s questions about mid-term voting to date: Newton explains that because Democrat and Republican voting may have gotten closer each day, doesn’t mean that the Democrats are really catching up in early voting. It just means the Republican percent of gains over 2016 are not as great as they were yesterday: What...

    More than 30 million Americans have cast early ballots ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections, eclipsing the 2014 early totals nationally and suggesting a high overall turnout for contests that could define the final two years of President Donald Trump’s term. At least 28 states have surpassed their 2014 early votes. And perhaps even more indicative of the unusual enthusiasm this midterm cycle, some states are approaching their early turnout from the 2016 presidential election. […] … The total early vote in 2014 was 28.3 million in an election where more than 83 million Americans voted. That was a low turnout...

    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/04/2018 | Greg Holt
    All the talk of a “blue wave” is nothing more than a fantasy the Socialistic Democrats tell themselves for comfort. The Democrats may have at one time had a chance as historically the party that does not control the White House takes control of the House and sometimes the Senate in the midterm elections. This time, the Democrats have sunk the ship before it even had a chance to leave the harbor. This writer has said for a long time now, although I unfortunately did not put it in writing – that the Republicans will win seats in the House...

    Sweeping accusations that the Kremlin tried to sway the 2016 U.S. election haven’t chastened Russian trolls, hackers and spies — and might even have emboldened them. U.S. officials and tech companies say Russians have continued online activity targeted at American voters during the campaign for Tuesday’s election, masquerading as U.S. institutions and creating faux-American social media posts to aggravate tensions around issues like migration and gun control. Russia denies any interference. So far U.S. authorities haven’t announced any huge hacks or the kind of multipronged campaign suspected in the 2016 election, and it’s hard to judge whether the more recent...

    It’s been a few years since married couple Marylee and Grayson Sanders have volunteered for political campaigns — her last was for the younger Bush, his for Eisenhower, passing out “I like Ike” signs in the 1950s. Saturday morning, they spent hours making hundreds of calls at the Irvine campaign headquarters of Rep. Mimi Walters, trying to get voters out to the polls to keep her in office and hold on to Republican control of the House. Marylee, 74, said she was motivated to get involved after the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings because she felt the then-nominee to the Supreme...

    For many voters in America’s affluent suburbs, a flourishing economy is forcing a thorny dilemma for the midterm elections. Do they vote Democratic, in part to protest President Donald Trump for behavior some see as divisive and unpresidential? Or do they back Republicans in hopes that the economy will continue thriving under the majority party? A healthy economy has at least complicated their decision and blurred the outcome of the midterm elections . On Friday, the government reported that employers added a robust 250,000 jobs in October. And the unemployment rate stayed at a five-decade low of 3.7 percent. […]...

    President Trump on Friday raised the specter that Republicans could lose control of the House of Representatives in Tuesday’s midterm elections — but didn’t seem too worried about the prospect. “It could happen. Could happen,” Trump said at a MAGA rally for GOP candidates in West Virginia. “And you know what you do? My whole life, you know what I say? ‘Don’t worry about it, I’ll just figure it out.’ Does that make sense? I’ll figure it out,” he added, apparently the first time he publicly broached the possibility of the loss of the House at a rally. The GOP...

Cameras did not pan out. Ne'er a peep about this in the media. I've been looking EVERYWHERE to see how many people showed up to this gabfest by diarrhea-mouth. Same thing in Georgia, since Obama held a rally for Abrams at Morehouse College today. Not a peep about crowd size...
