Pennsylvania Dems Might Just Vote for Trump If Warren Is the Liberal Nominee for POTUS (Report)

Kind of a big problem for her…

Who would’ve thought when she made her official announcement that Elizabeth “I’ve lied about my background my entire adult life” Warren would be leading the 2020 Democrat presidential field? Let’s be real – not even Warren figured it could happen, even in her wildest dreams.

This goes to show just how incredibly weak the liberal field is. President Trump must be smiling from ear to ear, knowing he has two legs up on all progressive candidates. Couple that with the devastating news surrounding Joe Biden’s Ukraine scandal and Bernie Sanders’ heart attack.

Even though “Pocahontas” is riding high at the moment, a report that dropped on Sunday afternoon should bring her back down to earth a great ways. Apparently, if the Massachusetts senator is handed her party’s nomination, Democrats in Pennsylvania might flip for Trump.

From Townhall:

So, is the Democrats’ impeachment push popular with their base? Probably. This is something that they’ve de facto campaigned on for nearly three years. The impeachment of Donald Trump because he won the 2016 election was not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when.’ But this is mostly an issue that appears to get the professional elite in the Democratic Party excited. There are other issues for the 2020 cycle. In Pennsylvania, a must-win state for both sides, Democrats in the western part of the state are not happy with the Democrats’ 2020 agenda. They’re not thrilled their party is anti-fracking and pushing an agenda that will gut their health insurance. For Medicare for All to work, all private plans have to go, which includes those for union workers. David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report noted this recently, adding there is a chasm where Democrats can fall if they come off as too insane. These folks are also not happy with the prospect of Lie-a-Watha Liz winning the nomination either:

Spent yesterday w/ a group of mostly union, anti-Trump Ds in western PA. Massive concerns about how a Warren nomination (esp. pledge to ban fracking on day one) would play out in the region.

Don’t underestimate how many voters in SWPA, etc. there are still left for Ds to lose.

2016 Clinton votes in the city of Philadelphia: 584,025

2016 Clinton votes in western PA *outside* the city of Pittsburgh: 631,120

Yes, there’s still a lot of room for Dems to fall.

My working theory…there were two types of indies who voted for Trump in 2016:

1) voters who liked idea of an unfiltered (entertaining?) prez who drove politicians/media crazy

2) voters who saw DC as 100% broken and wanted to try something totally different to get stuff done

The first group of indies has pretty much got the president “as seen on TV” in 2016. No letdown there.

But the second group is where Dems’ opportunity lies. He hasn’t “drained the swamp” or proven adept at “art of the deal” on infrastructure, immigration, etc. Dysfunction rules.

Moral of the story: Dems aren’t likely to win many more converts by attacking Trump’s behavior/style.

But they can probably win converts by arguing he fell right in line with the “swampy” Rs (esp. McConnell) to take away healthcare/cut taxes for rich & has made DC even worse.

Save conservative media!

Katie Hill Criticizes Paul Gosar For Epstein Tweets; Gosar Fires Back And Says ‘You Taught The Country What A ‘Throuple’ Was’

Published

on

Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona, struck back at his former colleague Katie Hill after she ripped him for tweeting about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein, a current hot topic and popular meme circulating around the Internet. Gosar’s burn was aimed at Hill’s recent controversy involving lewd photographs of her with a staffer who she had an inappropriate relationship with, noting that she taught the country what a “throuple” was. Here’s more from Fox News: Hill reprehended Gosar over a series of tweets that spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” a line that has been appearing in memes and on social media. Hill blasted him for “tweeting out real conspiracy theories.” “No[,] like this actually happened. Real members of Congress tweeting out real conspiracy theories. In an acrostic no less,” Hill tweeted. Gosar fired back, “You’re surprised by me? You single-handedly taught an entire country a new word. #throuple,” Gosar reacted. “And wth is up with that tattoo? Relax.” “Throuple,” which is a term to describe a three-person relationship, was the arrangement Hill reportedly had with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. Hill accused her estranged husband of leaking the nude photos as “revenge porn” amid their messy divorce. Hill’s attorneys also vehemently denied allegations made in a DailyMail story that one of the nude photos shows a “Nazi-era Iron Cross” tattoo. Gosar got a whole lot of attention on his Twitter account Wednesday after he let loose with a series of tweets he made in connection with the ongoing testimony of U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent as the first witnesses in the impeachment hearings against President Trump. The first letter of each of the tweets spells out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Rather clever, wouldn’t you agree?

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…
