With President Trump succeeding in fulfilling his campaign promises during his first 18 months in office, The “Blue Wave” predicted by Political Pundits for the Midterm Elections in 2018 and the 2020 President Election is rapidly becoming a “Blue Drip”.
The Washington Examiner reports that
President Trump has chipped away at big Democratic leads in a key 2020 election survey, and top aide Stephen Miller said that internal polls show the president doing even better than in 2016 when he beat Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In the new survey from Zogby Analytics, the gap between leading Democrats including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders has tightened, though the Republican still trails considerably.
Trump, however, beats rising Democratic star Sen. Kamala Harris by three points.
“Overall, the data points to Trump making gains with his base and key groups such as NASCAR fans and Walmart shoppers. The president is also making small gains with key Democratic groups such as Millennials, Generation Z, independents and women, while his Democratic rivals are losing ground with these groups,” said the analysis of the poll, a redo of a January 2020 survey.
“This is all simultaneously happening while Republicans are making gains against Democrats regarding the congressional midterms,” it added.
The nationwide online survey of 881 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
Since January, Biden’s lead over Trump has dropped 5 points, to 48 percent to 38 percent. Biden is doing well with some voters associated with Trump.
“President Trump struggles against Biden because Biden beats the president with his base of voters-those who frequently shop at Walmart (43 percent to 42 percent) and voters with no college education (Biden leads 44 percent to 40 percent), while Trump wins 53 percent to 39 percent with NASCAR fans. All these categories have tightened between the two candidates since January, but Biden still leads with most groups, especially important groups that are favorable to Trump,” said the poll.
The lead held by Sanders also dropped and is at 48 percent to 42 percent. Sanders is winning men and independents against Trump, said Zogby. “Sanders numbers are down slightly outside the margin of error this time around, especially with many key groups such as Millennials, Walmart shoppers and minorities,” the survey analysis explained.
Warren also saw her lead over Trump cut by three points, and is now 43 percent to 37 percent.
Unlikely 2020 candidates Oprah Winfrey and former first lady Michelle Obama also do well over Trump. Winfrey leads 53 percent to 47 percent. Obama’s lead is 48 percent to 39 percent.
Rising potential Democratic candidates, Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, struggle against Trump.
Harris loses in the new poll, 36 percent to 39 percent for Trump.
Booker is tied at 38 percent.
Top Trump aide Stephen Miller told Secrets that the administration’s internal polls are better.
“Our poll numbers are better today than they were on Election Day,” Miller told Secrets.
“In today’s country with the nonstop negativity in the media and everything else the political success that we’re having in what you’re seeing in the numbers, the generic ballot and everything else, is all enormously positive,” he added.
Oprah and “Mooch”? Seriously?
As you may or may not remember, Oprah Winfrey was very active during Barack Hussein Obama’s ascension to the Presidency of the United States, remaining a close friend and a trusted advisor to him and Mooch…err…Michelle throughout both terms.
The circle that she has traveled in and the causes which she has championed have made her a darling of the Liberal Elite on both the East and Left Coasts.
The hoi polloi fawn over her as if she is royalty. So, it really should not surprise any of us that the Democrats continue to float her name out there, even though she has denied that she wishes to seek the presidency.
And then, there’s “Mooch”…
Like her husband, Former President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has done her best to play The Race Card at every opportunity.
On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:
We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?
Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:
Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.
And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.
She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:
She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.
In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gave us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:
The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.
Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”
From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”
Her expensive tastes, during his time as “First Lady”, which included Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, did not exactly endear herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.
Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…
Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.
Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.
Not, in the case of the globe-trotting (on our dime) Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama. Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.
Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.
In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the Former First Lady what she could do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!
Most of the other First Ladies in my 59 years brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.
Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.
Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.
But, I digress…
Michelle Robinson Obama was the most useless, racially divisive, and downright hateful excuse for a First Lady that this country has ever seen.
Bess Truman was Mother Teresa compared with the woman whom I affectionately refer to as “Mooch”…
Quite frankly, all of us out here in the Heartland, think she stinks on ice.
Democrats have regressed way beyond desperation to even think of nominating either Oprah Winfrey or Michelle Obama as their next Presidential Candidate.
I thought Modern American Liberals were supposed to be the “Smartest People in the Room”?
At least, that’s what THEY always claim to be.
How lucky we are, as mere 9 to 5 peons, to have our choice for the next President of the United States of America be between 2 such eminently qualified individuals as selected for us by those who view themselves as our intellectual superiors.
Why, it just takes one’s breath away, doesn’t it?
And makes you want to blow chunks.
The “Smartest People in the Room”, as they did on up until the night of November 8, 2016, remain clueless.
