Democrat Senator Outs Survivors, Now Her Poll Numbers are Crashing Through the Floor

Yikes. She’s really not having a good month.

Published

North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, who is in a desperate battle to keep her crucial midterm senate seat in the upcoming November election, is having a really, really bad month. Like super bad.

Heitkamp’s poll numbers are already abysmal since voting against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, especially after she revealed that she made her decision by watching his testimony with the sound off.

Now she’s really gone and rolled around in the mud after releasing a video that outs the identities of sexual assault survivors who did not give their permission to be named and, as it turns out, were not actual survivors.

Oh, but it gets even worse. Her follow up apology ad might have violated FEC requirements by not providing a campaign disclaimer. Ouch.

After all that, unsurprisingly, Heitkamp’s poll numbers appear to be in an absolute free fall. Valley News Live reports on a new poll conducted Oct 12 through 19, which gauged opinions over several days after Heitkamp’s disastrous survivors ad published in every major newspaper in the state on Monday the 15th:

In an exclusive poll by KVLY, KFYR and Strategic Research Associates of 650 likely voters in North Dakota conducted between October 12 – 19, 2018, Republican challenger Kevin Cramer leads incumbent Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp 56% to 40%, increasing his lead since Gray Television’s September poll, in which Cramer held a 10-point advantage. Heitkamp’s support appears relatively fixed. Only 5% of those supporting her say that they might change their mind, compared to 17% of Cramer supporters who say they may still change theirs.

The favorability numbers are just as grim for Heitkamp. She’s now viewed unfavorably by a majority (52%) of likely North Dakota voters, a number that’s spiked 11% since September. Only 37% of voters now view her favorably.

Cramer’s numbers are effectively reversed. The Republican is viewed favorably by a majority (53%) of the state’s likely voters, up 7-points since September, while 38% view him unfavorably.

Valley News quotes James Henson, a partner in the research firm that produced the poll, who underscored that Heitkamp’s Kavanaugh vote and “campaign missteps” have badly damaged her numbers. “Senator Heitkamp appears to have been hurt by her vote against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the,U.S. Supreme Court as well as by subsequent campaign missteps widely covered in the media,” said Henson.

A Fox News poll conducted three weeks ago, after the Kavanaugh vote but before the survivors ad, showed Cramer with a 12-point lead, 53 – 41. A Mason-Dixon poll from June gave Cramer only a 4-point lead, 48 – 44.

Voting no on Kavanaugh has blown up in Heitkamp’s face severely, due in large part to the fact that the vast majority of North Dakota residents actually supported Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Talk about not carrying out the will of the people. Geesh.

One has to wonder if this all but seals her fate come November? One thing’s for sure, it’s definitely not looking to promising right now.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

Published

on

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
