Democrats are very concerned about the November 6 election.

They know the Senate will be retained by Republicans.

There’s also an outside shot the GOP keeps the House, as well.

This happened at the request of Democrats.

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday’s U.S. election and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company.

“We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesman said in an email. The removals took place in late September and early October.

Twitter removed more than 10,000 accounts, according to three sources familiar with the Democrats’ effort. The number is modest, considering that Twitter has previously deleted millions of accounts it determined were responsible for spreading misinformation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On Republican chances to keep both the upper and lower chambers, via Daily Wire:

Since the Kavanaugh confirmation circus, Republicans’ chances of keeping the Senate have strengthened. For the last few weeks, Real Clear Politics‘ average of the key polls has given Republicans 50 “safe” Senate seats and narrow leads in three of the six “tossup” races. According to Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, Republicans now have a 5 in 6 chance (82.7%; up 0.3% since last week) of maintaining control of the Senate, giving the Democrats just a 1 in 6 chance (17.3%) of taking over.

Silver projects Republicans to end up with 52 seats and Democrats with 48, a net gain of one seat for Republicans and one seat more than is needed for the 51-seat majority. Silver currently gives Republicans an 80% chance of gaining up to four seats or losing up to two, and just a 10% chance that they gain more than four or lose more than two.

Real Clear Politics‘ poll averages currently show Democrats with 205 seats that are “safely” blue, including 14 that are “likely” to go their way and 18 that “lean” Democrat. Republicans currently have 200 “safe” seats (20 likely and 26 leaning). Last week, RCP gave Republicans only 199 “safe” seats. If those numbers hold up, that means the Democrats only need 13 of the 30 tossup seats to attain the 218-majority in the House. Republicans, meanwhile, need to win 18. The one thing that could work in Republicans’ favor is that 28 of the 30 tossups are currently held by Republicans.

Let’s hear your thoughts.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

on

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

on

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
