President Trump did very well in the mid-term elections even though he was not on the ballot. Normally the “party in power” (the party that won the White House like Republicans did in 2016) loses significant numbers of House and Senate seats in the ensuing mid-term elections. But Trump confounded this trend.
In the 2010 mid-term elections Obama led the Democrat party to a loss of 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats. And that came after the Fake News media gave Obama more than two years of slobbering coverage. It also came after Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown had won ‘the Kennedy seat’ in the US Senate in January 2010.
In 1994 Democrats lost 54 House seats under Democrat president Bill Clinton, and a whopping 8 US Senate seats.
In contrast, in the recent elections Republicans lost 35+ House seats (the number has not been finalized) and the House majority, but actually gained two seats in the much more important US Senate. And those Democrat House victories came after non-stop negative press coverage of Trump for two years, and after many House races suddenly shifted in favor of Democrats at the last minute in what look like cases of Democrat fraud, as we are seeing clearly in Florida.
Note: Republicans will only have to win back roughly 15 seats in 2020 to re-take the House majority.
President Trump took great political risk in putting himself directly on the line, endorsing many Republican candidates and even making personal appearances for them. Most of them won including governor-elect Ron De Santis in Florida, senator-elect Rick Scott in Florida, senator-elect Josh Hawley in Missouri, senator-elect Mike Braun in Indiana, senator-elect Kevin Cramer in North Dakota, senator-elect Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee, and governor-elect Brian Kemp in Georgia.
If president Trump had not actively campaigned Republicans certainly would have seen bigger losses. He was very shrewd.
On the other hand some Republicans who shunned president Trump lost like Senate candidate Martha McSally in Arizona, who is a John McCain-type RINO Republican; and congressman Mike Coffman in Colorado.
In Georgia, ajc.com reported about the black Democrat gubernatorial candidate:
Stacey Abrams ended her run for Georgia governor on Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies.
Thus Democrats have a new approach – even when they clearly lose elections they are refusing to concede, playing the victim, playing the race card and filing lawsuits. Abrams may even demand a new election(!)
This is how Democrats have amassed much of their political power – through the media and through the courts, and not through the ballot box. Because their ideas do not appeal to a clear majority of Americans
The kooks are lining up to run against president Trump in 2020. Fox News reported:
Marianne Williamson, author and self-help guru, announced she’s considering running for president in 2020.
Williamson, 66, revealed Thursday she’s formed an exploratory committee regarding the possibility of running as a Democrat in 2020.
“We had a miracle in this country in 1776, and we need another one,” Williamson said in a video message, arguing the U.S. is not “functioning as a government of the people, by the people and for the people.”
Oh, boy a self-help guru… This is happening since president Trump is making major reforms and making the presidency look easy so that anybody thinks that they can do it.
But it is not easy; the presidency requires confidence, intelligence and courage in re-negotiating trade deals, enforcing the border, reforming the economy and confronting North Korea. This is why weak and immature presidents like Obama and Jimmy Carter failed.
Left-wing nuts all over America are planning to run in 2020. This will create a circus atmosphere and pave the way for Trump’s re-election. Even the porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is planning to run after he was recently arrested for spousal abuse.
Meanwhile the new Democrat majority in the House is going to completely overplay its hand and go crazy investigating everything about the president. This will create a foil for Trump to win re-election by pointing out the “do-nothing Democrats”.
At the same time Fox News reported about leftist Joy Behar of The View TV show:
ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar slammed the 52nd annual (Country Music Awards) on Thursday for not diving into politics when country music’s biggest stars gathered earlier this week.
(CMA) co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood decided to keep politics out of the event, much to the chagrin of the far-left Behar.
“I believe that everybody should be involved in politics right now. I really do. I don’t believe that you get a pass just because you’re a performer,” Behar said. “My personal belief is that we are in an emergency. The democracy is at risk, and everybody should be speaking up, everybody.”
In other words people on the Democrat side no longer believe that it is permissible for anyone to enjoy themselves for even one minute without obsessing about Trump, Trump, Trump.
This demonstrates once again that president Trump is living rent-free in the minds of every liberal in America. It is truly an amazing phenomenon. He is creating even more mass psychosis on the left which already was suffering from mass psychosis long before Trump was elected.
