Published

A new poll put out by the Washington Examiner/YouGov folks found that nearly half of registered voters want to see Donald Trump leave politics if he should lose his bid for reelection on Election Day.

According to the poll, 48 percent of those who responded to the survey said that if Trump is defeated by Joe Biden, he should leave the realm of politics, while 17 percent said they want him to try and run again in 2024. Another 18 percent said they’d like him to leave politics and support other candidates who have similar views, while 7 percent said “something else,” and 10 percent weren’t sure.

Trump has a massive Twitter following and frequently commented on politics and current events before he became a candidate for the presidency in 2015. He remains a big draw on the campaign trail. If he loses, he would be eligible to run again for a single term under the 22nd Amendment.

Democrats overwhelmingly want Trump to leave politics entirely, with 77% saying so to just 3% who say he should run for president again. Independents are more split, with a 47% plurality wanting him to leave politics, to 15% who prefer he would run again, and 14% who say he should leave politics but remain supportive of like-minded politicians.

Republicans are least likely to want Trump to go, with 38% saying he should run for president again and 34% saying he should leave politics but back new leaders who share his views. Just 9% want him to leave politics entirely.

In his report, W. James Antle III, wrote, “Most voters are very or somewhat likely to accept the results if their preferred candidate loses by a large margin, with 65% saying so. Democrats and Republicans are equally likely to accept a large election loss, 63% and 64% respectively.”

Here’s the thing. If Trump loses the presidential election, it’s probably time to move on and possibly have him back other candidates. Having him run for the White House in four more years would be a great idea if he were younger.

Still, let’s hope that’s not a scenario we actually have to deal with and that the president wins tonight in a landslide.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
