    The Washington Times ^ | October 27, 2020 | Seth McLaughlin
    New early voting data showed Democrats failing to hit their mark in several battleground states, giving Trump campaign officials more reasons for optimism Tuesday as President Trump rallied voters in key Midwestern states and Democrat Joseph R. Biden made a play for traditionally red Georgia. In Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, Democrats are falling short of their target of 70% of early votes cast either in-person or by mail. That’s the lead they hoped to build up to stave off an expected higher Republican turnout on Election Day.“The Democrats have not opened up a large enough lead in...

    Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson on Monday announced a run for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), becoming the first Democrat to enter what is expected to be a crowded 2022 race. In an ad posted on YouTube Monday morning, Nelson accused Johnson and other Republican senators of mismanaging the United States' response to the COVID-19 pandemic."There's just no help in sight," Nelson says. "And people like Ron Johnson have made this worse." “Who gets tested for COVID and then goes to a party and puts people at risk?” he adds, referring to Johnson's attendance at...

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Wis.) said Sunday that if Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the presidential election next month, “America would change forever" adding that in his view, “this election is for all the marbles.” “America would change forever. This election is for all the marbles. The Senate Democrats would pack the court. They would get rid of the filibuster so they could enact all these crazy socialist… policies,” Johnson told John Catsimatidis Sunday on his radio show “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 77 AM. The senator was referring to calls from some Democrats to add more justices to the...

    Kyle Rittenhouse: Are People under the age of 18 Forbidden from Open Carry in WI? One of the questions involving the Kyle Rittenhouse defensive engagements is if Kyle was forbidden from carrying an AR15 rifle, because he was at that time, four months short of his 18th birthday. Writing about it, I mentioned Wisconsin statutes 948.60, which forbids the carry of dangerous weapons by people under the age of 18. The law has exceptions and cutouts and definitions which need to be taken into account. There is an excellent tactical and legal analysis of the two defensive engagements by Kyle...

  • Support for Black Lives Matter Dropped 13 Points in Wisconsin in One Poll — Before Shooting of Jacob Blake and Riots

    New polling suggests support for Black Lives Matter dropped by 13 points in Wisconsin between June and early August — while a net positive approval rating of +25 completely evaporated. The survey data collected by Marquette Law School indicated 48 percent of Wisconsin residents surveyed between August 8-9 approved of Black Lives Matter, with 48 percent saying they disapproved. That was a shift from 61 percent who said they approved between June 14-18, next to 36 percent who said they disapproved. The data was released on Wednesday, but collected before the August 23 shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rioting in subsequent...

    A GoFundMe fundraiser for Jacob Blake—a 29-year-old Black man who was shot multiple times in the back by police officers in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday—has raised over $1 million since its Monday launch. The page was posted one day after Blake’s encounter with police, asking originally for $250,000 to help pay for his medical bills and legal fees. Quickly surpassing the initial goal, the page’s organizer, Julia Jackson, has continued upping the goal as donations continue pouring in. Nearly 38,000 people have donated a total of $1,038,560, with a new goal of $2 million. A cell phone video posted to...

    The attorney for a white man accused of being a racist in a hit-and-run accident last month is decrying the rush to judge his client, who he says was only trying to flee a dangerous mob when he ran into a Black woman around bar time in Downtown Madison. Brendan O’Neil, 26, of Sun Prairie, is charged with felony hit-and-run in the June 21 incident on Frances Street near University Avenue that left 24-year-old Alize Carter with abrasions, a fractured hand and reportedly a concussion. In a brief initial hearing by video Thursday, his bond was left at $350, which...

    Skip the first 2 minutes to avoid his commercials. Nice piece from Dr Steve Hurley. Highlights. 1. New Express poll has Trump tied with Biden at 47% each. 2. In case you think it's an outlier, Zogby also had a poll June 30th with Trump and Biden tied at 46% each. (Not to mention the Harris poll which had the gap between Biden and Trump down to just 4%). 3. The Express poll had Trump on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where Trump outpolls Biden by 48 percent to 44...
