(TNS) Anytime President Trump shows up to endorse a GOP candidate for office and that candidate loses, the Marxists in the media and the Garbage Party react by proclaiming he’s not popular, doesn’t really have a following, and is losing ground politically.

This, despite all of the facts on the ground that prove otherwise.
It’s true, it looks like incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin will lose his reelection bid to a Democrat, but so much more is going on that proves his loss — and other Republican victories in the state — are actually a sign of the president’s strength, not his weakness.
First off, Matt Bevin was practically the least popular governor in the country. Just a few months ago, he had an approval rating of 30 percent. Just a few weeks ago, he was down to his opponent by 17 points.
Then President Trump flew into Lexington on Monday and gave an incredible stump speech — on behalf of Bevin, but also on behalf of the other Republicans running for statewide office.
The results speak for themselves and were nothing short of historic.
For one, Bevin didn’t lose by 17 points. In fact, it looks like he’s only going to lose by a half-a-point, meaning Trump’s visit lifted the least-popular governor to +/-50 percent of the vote.
Bevin had a 30% approval rating, Trump showing up for a rally got him to ~50% of the vote. That's amazinghttps://t.co/TO08fQIF3P

Oh, and about history being made — while the Left-wing garbage media is writing the president’s political obit, Kentuckians just elected a Republican for attorney general for the first time in years. And he just happens to be the first black man to hold the post. And he won by a lot.
Bevin in trouble, but KY just elected its first black AG — first Republican AG in decades. https://t.co/fiZid3UsJQ

Readers will recall just recently that a Left-wing newspaper in Kentucky published an incredibly racist political cartoon about Cameron and President Trump.
This is what the @HeraldLeader —a “tolerant,” left-leaning newspaper—thinks about black folks who dare to be Republican. You’re a racist following the KKK unless you hate @realDonaldTrump. Let’s make history on November 5th and show we don’t take orders from the elites anymore. pic.twitter.com/gjnCT4eOsg

With that kind of Left-wing hate, who needs enemies, right? How ’bout that “tolerance,” huh?
Down ballot, it was a Republican sweep.
Quick review of the margins in those races:#KYGov: D+0.5
KY AG: R+15.4
KY Ag Com: R+19.6
KY Auditor: R+14.6
KY SecState: R+4.4
KY Treasurer: R+21.4

Naturally, the Marxist Left is focusing on the only bit of ‘good news’ to come out of Kentucky’s elections yesterday, while missing a whole forest of trees.
If a Republican wins a state AG race for the first time in 70 years and a Republican also loses a Governors race in KY maybe it’s about the candidates and not a referendum on the President. It’s embarrassing I have to remind people of this.

No one energizes our base like @realDonaldTrump.
In Kentucky, the governor was down 17 points.
President Trump helped lift the entire ticket, winning 5 of 6 statewide races so far!

Once again, the Marxists are too quick with President Trump’s political obituary.
