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

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

Published

on

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.

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
