How Big of a Factor Was President Trump in the Midterms? Exit Polls Have the Answer.

That doesn’t look too good.

Just 24 hours before the midterm elections, President Trump stated that he didn’t think the outcome would end up being some sort of referendum on his first two years in the Oval Office.

Trump stated that he believed things were going well, but if folks weren’t happy with his performance, he’d accept that, stating that he believed things were peachy in both the House and the Senate.

Well, as it turns out, his confidence in the House was just a bit misplaced.

By 10 p.m. EDT, several major networks called the House for Democrats. At the same time, the nets said Republicans would hang onto control of the Senate. But it’s the House loss that will define the next two years of Trump’s presidency: If Democrats make Rep. Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House and install Trump haters into leadership positions, Trump faces a very unpleasant end to his first term, filled with investigations and gridlock and endless partisan sniping.

In the end, exit polls showed voters made Trump a major factor in their decisions. “Nearly two-thirds of those voters said Mr. Trump was a factor. One quarter of those casting a House ballot said they did so in part to support him. Four in 10 said they cast a vote to oppose him. Only one-third said he played no role in their voting,” CBS News reported.

The booming economy, which Trump was counting on to shore up his party, didn’t play as big a role as he’d hoped.

In a big change from previous midterms, just 1 in 5 voters said the economy was the most important issue in the election this year — even though Trump sought to make that the center point of his effort to push Republicans.

The Associated Press reported that nearly 40% of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to a national survey of more than 115,000 voters.

Opposition to Trump proved to be more a motivating factor for Democrats than support for the president a factor for Republicans. Still, Republican voters tended to be overwhelmingly supportive of the president.

More voters disapproved of Trump’s job performance than approved — a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling.

While the loss of House seats for Trump’s administration is pretty bad, it’s still better than when President Obama lost the House back in 2010. Obama lost 63 House seats right after the Affordable Care Act was passed.

CBS News pinned the loss on President Obama, with the point being that whenever a president loses part of Congress, or the whole thing, the blame is always laid on the president.

The question we need to ask is whether that assumption is right. It’s hard to argue that Trump’s often divisive, sometimes seemingly childish rhetoric is off putting for a lot of folks, Republicans included. Could that have played a significant role in mobilizing liberals to come out and vote in larger numbers?

It’s a real possibility. Most of the time, when you hear complaints about President Trump, it goes back to things he’s said or something he’s done in his past, which just goes to show, if you have any sort of interest in politics, even just a little teeny, tiny bit, you need to be extraordinarily careful with your behavior and the things you say. They could come back to haunt you later.

Nick Cannon is a comedian, actor, TV host, racist, rapper, and father to a couple of Mariah Carey’s kids. Did you catch the racist part? That one shouldn’t go overlooked. On Tuesday, the former Nickelodeon star was canned from one of his gigs for anti-white and anti-Semitic comments. From Daily Wire: “The Masked Singer” host Nick Cannon lit up the internet this past weekend when he said that white people are inferior to black people due to the lack of melanin in their skin. Speaking on an episode of “Cannon’s Class,” the television host argued that “melanated people” have a natural sense of compassion and soul that white people lack, creating jealousy and fear that causes them to act out in evil ways. Cannon said, “They had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough environments, so they’re acting as animals. So they are the ones that are actually closer to animals, they are the ones that are actually the true savages.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/Adam4d/status/1283087941271801861?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1283087941271801861%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-nick-cannon-white-people-are-a-little-less-closer-to-animals-true-savages And here’s the part where Nick gets fired… ViacomCBS announced late on Tuesday evening that they had terminated their relationship with left-wing entertainer Nick Cannon after the actor made remarks that were widely deemed to be anti-Semitic on his podcast. “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” the company said in a statement. “We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.” Nick, Nick, Nick.

Black Community Leaders Calling for Comeback of Anti-Crime Unit Due to NYC Crime Spike

Listen up, de Blasio!

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Those aren’t just great song lyrics, as the words can be applied to anything and everything a person takes for granted. Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo might want to take note. Check this out, from TDW: Leaders in the black community in New York City are calling on the New York City Police Department to deal with the recent crime surge in the city by reinstating the plainclothes anti-crime unit that the department recently dismantled as anti-police sentiment exploded in wake of the death of George Floyd. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a former cop, “became the second member of the African-American community to call on the NYPD to stop the violence by re-instituting the Anti-Crime Unit — undercover cops whose job was to get guns off the street,” CBS New York reported. “This, as shootings for the week went up 277%, 49 compared to 13 in 2019. The number of victims is up 253%, 60 compared to 17 in 2019.” Weren’t we told by lefties that crime would decrease if there were less police officers on the streets? Isn’t that basically what the first lady of New York City said, herself? From New York Post: Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday. By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week.
