Yes…, President Trump just keeps on winning, while the democrats and the lamestream media come out the losers…, again.
According to Doug Schoen, for Fox News, “Trump is big winner and Sessions is the big loser in Tuesday primaries, while Dems remain divided.”
He also reports that, “The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”
“There are two key takeaways from the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama, Maine and Texas.”
“First, the big winner of the night was President Trump. Several Trump-backed candidates defeated their opponents and unquestionably benefited significantly from The President’s support. The most notable of these was former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who defeated former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions for the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, considered a highly vulnerable incumbent.”
“Second, Democratic primary results show the party is deeply divided, complicating the Democrats’ path to winning majority control of the Senate and defeating Trump in the November election.”
“Alabama was the biggest race Tuesday and of special interest to [President] Trump. The President forced out Sessions as attorney general after Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election – a decision Sessions said he was required to make because he had been involved in the Trump campaign. Trump never forgave Sessions for the recusal and considered it a betrayal.”
“In his bid to regain the Senate seat he resigned to become Trump’s attorney general, Sessions faced fierce opposition from The President, who repeatedly criticized him with harsh insults and actively supported Tuberville. Trump’s endorsement clearly carried more weight with voters than Sessions’ endorsements from prominent Republicans and his former Republican Senate colleagues, including Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.”
So, who are these other “prominent republicans who went out of their way to buck President Trump and endorse Jeff Sessions?
And republican senators:
Jim Inhoffe (OK)
Pat Roberts (KS)
Mike Enzi (WY)
Mike Crapo (ID)
John Barrasso (WY)
Roy Blunt (MO)
John Boozman (AR)
Ron Johnson (WI)
Deb Fischer (NE)
Michelle Malkin…, you have broken my heart! Jeff “the backstabber” Sessions?! Really? What could you have possibly been thinking? I’m going to have to re-evaluate our relationship.
And my own senator, Ron Johnson! Why would you endorse Jeff “the mole” Sessions?!
“Meanwhile, in Texas, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was endorsed by [President] Trump, won his primary for a U.S. House seat, beating out Josh Winegarner. Winegarner was endorsed by the outgoing Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry.”
“In many ways, the weight of [President] Trump’s endorsements in Alabama and Texas signals that The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”
Recollecting the polls and their accuracy during the 2016 presidential election, I would say this is most definitely the case.
A day or so before the primaries, I can recall the media touting that the Sessions-Tuberville race was a virtual toss-up.
Tuberville crushed Sessions, 60.7% to 39.3%.
Some kind of “toss-up,” huh?
“In several U.S. House and Senate Democratic primaries held in June, progressive challengers either defeated or came close to nearly defeating their well-funded establishment opponents.”
“Likewise, the division between the progressive and moderate factions of the party was manifest in Tuesday’s primaries.”
“Given the clear progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party across the country, there will also likely be greater pressure on the party to embrace left-leaning policies, such as defunding the police, which are unpopular with the general electorate.”
You mean most people don’t want to operate under jungle rules?
You mean most people believe that criminals should be arrested?
You mean that most people believe that other people who can’t behave in a civilized manner should be dealt with accordingly?
If that’s what you mean, well then maybe you do agree with me that these favorable polls for Sleepy Joe are seriously flawed.
It’s hard to believe the democrats believe most people in the country want the Chicago, the L.A., or the New York lifestyle of burning, looting, shooting, killing and just general lawlessness.
“Doing so could cost the Democrats the presidency, the Senate, and even their current House majority.”
We can only hope!
The only mention of these primary events by CNN is a whiney little article about Sessions and how he was mistreated by The President, and how he paid the price for being associated with President Trump somehow, even though The President firmly backed his opponent in the primary.
Only the “logic” of CNN can explain that “expert” analysis.
