According to The Hill, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has an 18% approval rating in Kentucky. So before McConnell decides to mouth off and talk about President Trump’s demise, he might want to contemplate his own. If this swamp clown had any respect for the good people of Kentucky, the US Senate and the Republican party, he would step down and relinquish the reins to some one else who was up to the job. But instead, swamp creatures like McConnell just believe in m,maintaining power and could care less about the will of the people. Meanwhile, President Trump has a 60% approval rating in the Blue Grass state. McConnell represents all that is wrong with politics and the GOP, a tiring, old, dinosaur who is more worried about hanging on to power and doing nothing, than actually doing what he campaigned on. The issue Mitch isn’t that we and President Trump have “excessive expectations,” the problem is that you are a liar and an establishment politician who needs to go. The fact that you think that expecting our elected leaders to do what they campaign on for 7 years is excessive, more than tells us enough about you … DITCH MITCH!!!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has an 18 percent job approval rating in Kentucky, according to a new survey.
A Public Policy Polling survey found just 18 percent of respondents approve of the job McConnell is doing, compared with 74 percent who disapprove.
If McConnell were up for reelection today, 37 percent of respondents said they would vote for the Kentucky Republican. Another 44 percent would instead choose a Democratic opponent, according to the survey.
An additional 19 percent said they were unsure.
McConnell’s seat will be on the ballot next in 2020.
Earlier this month, President Trump took aim at McConnell after the Kentucky Republican vented about the president’s “excessive expectations” for his agenda.
Trump questioned why McConnell had not yet been able to pass a new healthcare plan and Trump’s top spokeswoman said there is “some frustration” with the Senate leader.
The poll also finds that just 27 percent of respondents approved of the Senate GOP’s healthcare bill that collapsed last month.
Nearly half, 49 percent of respondents, disapproved of the legislation.
President Trump has an approval rating of 60 percent in Kentucky. Slightly more than one-third of respondents, 36 percent, disapprove of the job the president is doing.
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) Says In Some Parts of the Country, Nancy Pelosi Is More Toxic Than Donald Trump (VIDEO)
WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU ARE RIGHT, DEMOCRATS ARE MORE TOXIC THAN TRUMP …
Following the disastrous special election in Georgia this past week, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) openly criticized Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and said it was time his party did some soul-searching to figure out what the problem was. One problem is Nancy Pelosi and that in many areas of the country, she is more toxic than President Donald Trump. Ryan went on to say that Pelosi has become a focal point for the GOP to run against.
“The brand is just bad,” Ryan said. “I don’t think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country.”
Lemon asked Ryan if he believed Pelosi was more toxic than Donald Trump.
“The honest answer is in some areas of the country — yes, she is,” Ryan said. ” I think that in certain areas, like in some of these special election districts, it doesn’t benefit our candidates to be tied to her. “
However, I have to disagree with Rep. Ryan’s overall premise. He thinks that Nancy Pelosi is the over-reaching problem. This is not true. Pelosi is a symptom of the problem. not the actual issue. The real issue is what the Democrat party has become. The Democrat party is far-LEFT, nearly half wanted a socialist like Bernie Sanders, not a Democrat, a self-proclaimed socialist to be their candidate. Had it not been for a rigged Democrat primary with “super delegates” pushing Hillary over the finish line, Sanders could have won. This is how far left the party has lurched. This is the problem with the party, they are toxic to the very blue collar workers that make up the electorate in once blue states like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin. The Democrats are no longer the party of the working class. They have not been for many years. The Democrat party has become the party of the West coast/East coast elites, the party of Hollywood, the party of LGBTQ, the party of Black Lives Matters. The Democrat party is no longer the party of JFK or even Bill Clinton. Not even close.
YES NANCY, YOU CERTAINLY ARE WORTH THE TROUBLE FOR THE GOP …
Democrat House Minority leader, San Fran Nan defends herself against some of the recent critics in her own party that she is to blame for the Democrat’s recent string of losses to the GOP and that she needs to step down. Pelosi said, “she was worth the trouble”. She went on to say that she was not disrespectful of people’s views. Really? Unless you are a Republican with views. My person opinion is STAY!!! I don’t want you to go anywhere. She is the poster child why anyone in a red/purple district or a blue collar worker living in a blue state need never vote for a Democrat representative. For they will be beholden to Pelosi and her far-Left political agenda.
Wow, listen to how defensive Nancy Pelsoi gets to the question posed to her that some in the Democrat party feel its time for her to step down. She literally says, its not up to them (0:40) to determine when she leaves. OMG, she goes on to tout herself as a “master legislator” and a “strategic astute leader.” You just keep up that master legislating and astute leadership Nancy, Republicans and Conservatives in the United States are counting on it!
Not everyone thinks Pelosi should stay, some think there should be new leadership in the Democrat party. Nancy Pelosi’s time has ‘come and gone.’ Watch the liberal MSM on MSNBC defend Pelosi and question how dare they adopt the Republican notion that she is an out of touch California liberal. However, Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) stood her ground and stated, there comes a time and place for leadership change and to usher in the future.
“We can’t keep losing races and keep the same leadership in place. You have a baseball team that keeps losing year after year. At some point, the coach has got to go, right?” said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., on Friday.
The frustrated Democrats met in Rice’s office a day earlier to discuss their options as they face long odds of knocking out the woman who has led the Democratic caucus for nearly 15 years from minority to majority and back, raised tens of millions of dollars and has had multiple legislative successes. Their action plan: Keep talking. Keep raising the concern that something needs to change within the ranks of the party’s leadership.
Said Rice: “The Republican playbook has been very successful. It’s not fair. It’s not accurate in its attacks on our leader, but it’s effective. They keep winning and we keep losing.”
WOW, THIS DUDE THINKS A LOT OF HIMSELF … ACTUALLY ERIC NOTORIETY IS NOT A GOOD THING.
Republicans be fearful, former Obama attorney general Eric Holder is considering a run for the White House in 2020. According to Yahoo News, Holder believes that he has a certain status as the former attorney general and a certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. HUH? These liberals are legends in their own minds. Most people probably have no clue who Holder is and could care less that he was the first black attorney general. It appears he is going to try and use his Obama coattails and be a part of the resistance to gain favor with the LEFT. These Lefties just cannot go away after they lose. Most individuals remember Holder for being a part of the gun running disaster known as Fast & Furious and the fact that he was held in contempt of Congress. Then as Legal Insurrection reminds us there was that little incident where he refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation.
More than two years after leaving the Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder is reentering the political fray.
His goal: to lead the legal resistance to Donald Trump’s agenda — and perhaps even run against the president in 2020.
Seized by a sense of urgency to oppose Trump and restore what he regards as America’s best self, Holder is mulling a White House bid of his own, according to three sources who have spoken to him and are familiar with his thinking.
“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” Holder told Yahoo News in an exclusive interview about his plans. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.
But Monday’s event was also something bigger: a coming-out party of sorts for a figure who sees his work in California as a springboard to a new role as the key legal architect — and one of the major public faces — of the nationwide progressive pushback against President Trump.
Rarely mentioned as a 2020 contender and controversial while in office, Holder would enter any Democratic primary contest as a long shot. Even his engagement with the resistance is something of a surprise. For most of his career, Holder was seen as a conventional, mild-mannered figure. But he grew more pugnacious as attorney general, in part because Republicans never stopped attacking him, and he wound up pursuing a sharply progressive agenda during Obama’s second term.
Eric Holder left office with a 26% approval rating. In his mind he thinks he is the next voice of the Democrat party. What a delusional world these Libs really do live in. All we have to say is RUN, ERIC, RUN!!!
The 43 People Who Might Run Against Donald Trump in 2020 Show Just How Pathetic the Democrat Bench Really Is
ANOTHER LEGACY OF OBAMA, HE DECIMATED THE DEMOCRAT BENCH …
Remember when the Democrats and liberal MSM jokes and criticized the Republicans for having so many candidates in the GOP primaries in the run up to the 2016 Presidential election, guess what, the Democrats might have even more in 2020. As reported at The Hill, here are a potential 43 individuals who might run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Take a look at the so-called list below, are you joking? Biden and Sander, these two would be pushing 80 … never going to happen. The list contains the likes of Al Gore, Howard Dean, Russ Feingold and Michelle Obama. Good grief, really? After 8 years of Barack Obama, the Democrats have zero, nada, no bench. What is interesting about the list is that it is void of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.
The 2020 presidential election could feature the most crowded Democratic primary in decades, with scores of Democrats rumored as potential contenders.
The potential field could see some familiar faces as well as a mix of ambitious senators, governors and House members. But President Trump’s success as an outsider could also embolden more nontraditional candidates from the business and entertainment industries.
With no clear leader, the 2020 field should be a change from 2016, when Democrats had a small field of candidates, including front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Here are 43 possible candidates who could take on Trump in 2020:
Former Vice President Joe Biden: Biden, 74 (He missed his window, too old and already said he would not run)
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), 75, (The items, socialist and Jurassic Park)
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), 67,
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), 52,
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.): (A northeast liberal?)
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), 56,
Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg: Zuckerberg, 32,
Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.): (Never going to happen, he can thank Barack Obama)
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.):
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: 59, (Another failed Cuaomo attempt)
Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, 54,
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), 59, (Did you see him as Hillary’s VP candidate, might have been one of the wort and useless ever)
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), 65,
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), 64,
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, 55,
Former first lady Michelle Obama Michelle Obama (never going to happen)
Former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), 64 (Feingold couldn’t even win re-election last year in Minnesota, how is he a viable candidate?)
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean: Dean, 68, (Dean is still screaming who blew past Democrat primaries)
Former Vice President Al Gore: Gore, 69 (Sorry, his time has come and gone)
