ALTHOUGH ITS WAY TOO EARLY AND ONLY HYPOTHETICAL, THESE ARE INTERESTING POLL RESULTS …
Battleground state of Florida: In a poll commissioned by the Central Florida Post, and performed by Florida based polling outfit Dixie Strategies, between President Donald Trump and liberal fantasy candidate Oprah Winfrey, the results were rather startling to those on the LEFT. The poll showed that President Trump would win easily in Florida against Oprah, 47.91% to 23.95%. Although such a poll is far too early and obviously hypothetical, it does present a snap-shot in time and the thinking of a state’s electorate. Oprah may be the LEFT’s dream, presidential candidate, even though they stated when Trump announced his candidacy that he had no experience. But it shows in state polls, not skewed national ones, maybe Oprah isn’t the people’s choice. This might just be a reality check for Oprah.
Donald Trump in the must-win state of Florida, according to our poll conducted by Dixie Strategies of 785 likely voters, would trounce Oprah Winfrey.
How bad? President Donald Trump would win with a whopping 47.91% to Winfrey’s 23.95%, with a theoretical third party candidate getting 14.83% and 13.31% of voters undecided.
“Donald Trump continues to hold his base of supporters, while it appears Floridians are not viewing Oprah as a serious candidate.”
Trump not only retains very favorable views from 70% of Republicans in the must-win state of Florida, he also maintains a higher favorability across party lines. President Trump is viewed as “very favorable” by 42.42% of voters, while Oprah is viewed “very favorable” by only 25.87% of Florida voters.
When those 25.87% of Winfrey supporters were asked about her close personal relationship with Harvey Weinstein, nearly 45% of her supporters said it would make them less likely to support her candidacy.
3 DEAD IN COLORADO AFTER SHOOTING AT WALMART …
According to the Denver Post, three people are dead following a shooting at a Walmart in Thorton, Colorado. The gunman said nothing during the shooting and quiet walked out of the store. Following the shooting, police said the gunman fled in a red Mitsubishi Mirage four-door hatchback. The shooter is still at large and the police do not have any leads on his identity; however, his picture is below. Surely some one knows who this man is and will contact the authorities.
Two men and a woman are dead after a shooting early Wednesday evening inside the Walmart Supercenter at 9901 Grant St. in Thornton, police said. Police said the gunman is at large.
Hundreds of emergency responders ringed the Thornton Town Center shopping complex for hours after the shooting was reported about 6:30 p.m.
Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said a gunman wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a maroon shirt walked into the south entrance of the store and began shooting a handgun randomly. The three victims were all in the same area near the front of the store, Avila said.
The gunman said nothing during the shooting, Avila said, then left.
Democrats Feeling the Pressure of the 2018 Miidterm Elections … Sen. Manchin (D-WV) is One of Three Senate Democrats who Didn’t Sign Party Line Letter on Tax Reform
25 DEMOCRAT & INDEPENDENT SENATORS WHO CAUCUS WITH THE DEMOCRAT PARTY ARE UP FOR REELECTION IN 2018, MANY IN STATES WON BIG BY TRUMP ARE FEELING THE PRESSURE, …
Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) are among three U.S. Senators who did not sign the Democrat party line letter on tax reform. Although, Manchin hedged his bets and said he supported the fiscal ideas. Even though Manchin claimed his decision had nothing to do with politics or reelection, it had everything to do with it. What do these three Democrat Senators all have in common? They all are up for reelection in 2018 in “red” states that Donald Trump won big in 2016. Trump won West Virginia 68.6% to 26.5%, North Dakota 64.1% to 27.7% and Indiana 57.2% to 37.9%. So do you think Manchin, Heitkamp and Donnelly are not feeling the pressure to break from the Democrat party line? If they continue along the path of the far-LEFT leadership of their party, all will lose in 2018. Long gone are the days of the Blue Dog Democrats, this party is bordering on socialism these days.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is one of three Senate Democrats who didn’t sign a letter establishing the party line on tax reform, though he said Tuesday he agrees with all its components.
Manchin, who is up for re-election in 2018, said even though he supports the Democrats’ fiscal ideas, he won’t sign on without efforts to bring Republicans on board. He also said the election is not influencing his decision-making.
“The bottom line is, if it doesn’t help West Virginia, it doesn’t make sense to me, and just because there’s an election doesn’t mean I sign on or don’t sign on,” he said. “If you look at all the time I’ve been here, there’s stuff I don’t sign on to. I just don’t think it’s a good way to do business when you don’t try to get people from the front end.”
Sens. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., didn’t sign either. All three Democrats are up for re-election in states whose electorates voted for President Donald Trump by wide margins.
The letter was sent to Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch. It outlines three main policy points: tax reform should neither increase the burden on the middle class nor lessen it on high-wage earners; it should go through regular Senate procedure, not a fast-tracked process like budget reconciliation; and it should not increase the federal deficit or cut programs like Medicaid.
When confronted by about his unwillingness to tote the party line Manchin replied with, “I don’t give a sh*t …” The reality is, Manchin, like the governor of West Virginia should probably think about changing parties. Or, the voters of WV need to vote him out of office as the Democrat party power-base does not. West Virginia has become a dark red state, so why would they think a Democrat Senator would serve them?
Because in the end, who is is his ear?
“I don’t give a s–t, you understand? I just don’t give a s–t,” he said. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I’m up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for s–t that I don’t like and can’t explain, they’re all crazy.”
“I’m not scared of an election, let’s put it that way. Elections do not bother me or scare me. I’m going to continue to do the same thing I’ve always done, extremely independent.”
Senate Poll Shocker: Kid Rock Leads by 4 in Poll of Hypothetical Matchup with Debbie Stabenow for Michigan US Senate Seat
JUST HOW WORRIED ARE DEMOCRATS THAT THEIR BLUE WALL WILL BE TORN DOWN FOREVER … KID ROCK LEADS DEM INCUMBENT?
In a hypothetical general election US Senate matchup, a Delta Analytica poll stated that Kid Rock leads by 4 percentage points over incumbent Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. The poll also concluded that 54% of respondents preferred Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie) to only 46% for incumbent Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. Just what is the level of panic in the Democrat party if they cannot win Michigan with an establishment, incumbent candidate? Earlier in the month, Kid Rock stated that he was going to run for Senate. It’s time to drain the swamp America, the folks in Michigan can make a huge statement! If Republicans can win the Michigan US Senate seat in 2018, the 2018 mid-term elections are going to be a political bloodbath for Democrats.
To gauge Ritchie’s chances in a hypothetical general election matchup, Delta Analytica conducted a poll from July 14-18 of 668 Michigan residents. Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow. These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends. The relatively large, 44%, number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.
Michigan, once part of the Democrats vaunted “Blue Wall” is suddenly a battleground where Democrats and Republicans are now fighting for blue collar voters. This became a central theme during the 2016 election season, where Donald Trump won over the white working class vote. The question now is whether that support will rub off onto other Republicans candidates in the 2018 midterm elections. Robert Ritchie looks to capitalize on this fervor and promote his brand with song lyrics that appeal to these same Michigan voters, despite never having held any political office.
Born Free – Kid Rock
Words from Kid Rock via The American Mirror …
“Dinner time at my house. What do you think Schumer is spoon-feeding Stabenow tonight?” he tweeted.
When Ritchie teased his intentions, he ripped politicians.
“I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!” he said on his website.
KID ROCK TO RUN FOR SENATE …
Wouldn’t this be something, Kid Rock is running for US Senate in Michigan. On Wednesday afternoon, Kid Rock (Robert James Ritchie) announced that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat in 2018, presumably against Debbie Stabenow, the Democratic senator from Michigan, who is up for reelection next year. One thing is for certain, Kid Rock will certainly “rock” out the vote in Michigan. Can you imagine what the crowds will look like at his rallies? In this day and age where politics and professional politicians have become so toxic, I say GO FOR IT … ROCK ON!!!
In 2018, Democrats have too defend far more seats than the GOP, and many of them in states that Trump won in 2016. One way or another the American people have got to drain the swamp. If it takes unusual methods and the likes of Kid Rock, so be it. Democrats have controlled Michigan for too long. In 2016 Donald Trump broke through the blue wall in Michigan, maybe Kid Rock needs to tear it down completely.
The New Yorker calls Kid Rock’s run for the Senate, the “Terrifying New Normal.” Maybe that is because conservative stars actually have credibility with the people, because they have the pulse of the people. Interestingly enough, the LEFT was not saying this when Al Fraken, Stuart Smalley from SNL, ran for US Senate. The liberal media knows the truth, Kid Rock could actually win in Minnesota, especially in a mid-term election where its all about turnout.
UPDATE I: Once again the press is wrong.
Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..
