(NationalSentinel) Politics: The Marxist Left, headed by the Democratic Party, is desperate to find evidence – any evidence at all – that supporters of President Donald J. Trump are having “voter’s remorse” and are abandoning him in droves.
That’s what yesterday’s special election in Georgia was supposed to “prove” – with a Democratic victory in a long-held GOP seat vacated by Tom Price, Trump’s Health and Human Services secretary, which did not happen and now won’t happen after their candidate, Jon Ossoff, failed to win 50 percent of the vote to avoid a run-off (11 other Republicans divided the vote).
But try as they might, Democrats so far have been unable to come up with any real data to suggest Trump voters are leaving his camp. As reported by The Week:
We are nearly 100 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, and the most remarkable aspect of it thus far is that the political environment hasn’t changed much at all. The same media that largely ignored the widespread dissatisfaction with the political establishment and wrote off Trump’s electoral chances continue looking for evidence that the president has lost traction with the people who elected him. The effort to write the Trump-remorse narrative began in the Republican primaries, when analysts and the media expected GOP voters to eventually rally around a Trump alternative, and continues even now. But still, reality continues to confound those efforts.
The report goes on to note that Democrats claimed a “moral” victory in a special election in Kansas, where Republican Mike Estes ended up in a virtual tie in late polling against Democrat James Thompson in an election to replace Mike Pompeo, whom Trump chose to head the CIA. This deep-red district had a +15 rating for Republicans, but Estes only won by 7 points.
Trump remorse? Hardly, The Week‘s Edward Morrissey writes. In fact, perhaps, maybe even the opposite:
Estes ran for the seat while serving as the incumbent state treasurer for Kansas in the administration of Gov. Sam Brownback (R). Brownback’s fortunes have declined sharply in his second term, and he is now one of the most unpopular governors in the country, with an approval rating of 27 percent — just getting edged out of last place by Chris Christie’s 25 percent in New Jersey. The local reporting on Estes’ struggles focused much more on his connections to Brownback than President Trump. In fact, the final push from national Republicans came from Paul Ryan and Trump himself, who recorded a message for voters in Kansas’ 4th congressional district assuring voters that Estes had his full endorsement.
Rather than the special election amounting to a referendum on Trump, the sequence of events tends to show that Trump can get voters to the polls even late in the game.
Democrats and their lapdogs in the establishment media won’t stop ‘looking for evidence’ that Trump’s support is declining, so don’t expect that to happen. In fact, when a Democrat does finally win a race, that story will become the “turning point for the Trump presidency,” which will be ‘declared over’ by the press and the Democratic National Committee.
Don’t buy it.
