Heading Into Convention Season, President Trump Looks Formidable

Loading

by PAUL INGRASSIA

One is hard-pressed to imagine a better case scenario for President Trump a week out from the Republican National Convention, which is set to formally begin on July 15.  Over the last two weeks, the 45th President has enjoyed maybe the best stretch of his entire political career.  Between Biden’s meltdown to the Supreme Court recognizing presidential immunity, the Trump Train has been propelled by a mountain of good news. Every reputable poll has President Trump leading in each of the six most important battleground states.  The New York Times, which has never been friendly or fair to President Trump, has him up between 1 and 5 points in each of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina.  Winning all those states, in addition to the states he carried in 2020, would guarantee him his greatest electoral college victory ever.

But the momentum does not stop there.  A recent Fox News poll has President Trump tied with Biden in Virginia.  Polls by both Emerson College and McLaughlin & Associates have President Trump outright leading in the state of Minnesota, which no Republican has carried since Richard Nixon in 1972.  Perhaps most remarkably of all, a poll by co/efficient has President Trump up by 1 point in the state of New Jersey!

As the weeks progress, polling will better capture the fallout from Joe Biden’s disastrous debate performance, which should be even more to President Trump’s advantage.  Expect the numbers above to get only better for President Trump, who is well on his way to a landslide victory, if the election were today, based on these projections.  Even if current polling has somehow overcorrected or biased in favor of President Trump (it would be a first!), he would only need to pick off one of the midwestern battleground states to defeat Biden in November.  Or he can hold onto his leads in North Carolina, Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada – and secure either a New Hampshire or Maine, which would be enough for victory.

Although Trump supporters know more than anyone — given how scandalously off they were in 2016 — not to obsess over the polls, President Trump’s fortunes go beyond the positive news from pollsters.  First, he is enjoying great enthusiasm on the ground.  In May, he hosted over 100,000 people in Wildwood, New Jersey, smashing every record for the largest political rally of any kind in state history.  He has enjoyed similarly huge turnouts north, south, east, and west, from Las Vegas to Miami to Virginia and Milwaukee, which is playing host to this year’s RNC.

It is no secret that President Trump’s base is enthusiastic like never before.  In sharp contrast with Biden, whose “supporters” are defecting to the Trump Train or other candidates in droves, the 45th President’s base has been galvanized by the lawfare that has made a martyr of President Trump, the ultimate victim of our weaponized justice system.  What is more, they are tired of being ransacked by inflation of a scale that surpasses anything most Americans have experienced in their lifetimes.  The message of closed borders and mass deportations resonates with all Americans, who so desperately want a return to the rule of law and a focus on American interests, rather than prioritizing those of another foreign nation or people.

Hundreds of millions are fed up with radical woke insanity.  They do not want to see men competing in women’s sports or changing in their daughters’ locker rooms.  They find equally appalling the idea of having abortions at eight or nine months, or even post-birth, as many mainstream Democrats have advocated for.  They are fed up with DEI policies which prioritize skin color, gender, and sexual orientation over merit and ability.  They do not want to be saddled by crippling regulations, made in the name of “climate change,” which prevents us from tapping into our vast natural resources, thereby creating a greater dependency on competitors like Russia and Iran for their oil.

All these policies have the effect of making us poorer and more vulnerable to foreign adversaries.  At the same time, our economy has basically entered a recession, defined by little to no growth, lingering inflation, fake jobs, and a hollowing out of industry.  On top of it all, migrants from across the world have invaded our borders by the tens of millions.  Almost all of them are low-skilled, adding zero cultural or economic enrichment.  Many belong to gangs, deal in drugs, traffic children, and have committed some of the most barbaric crimes conceivable.

These policies, taken collectively, spell doom for America – and will bring about our demise as a nation if allowed to go on with this suicidal trajectory another four years.  It is thus the survival impulse among the populace that is ultimately responsible for the seismic shift in the polls, support, and yearning to see President Trump back in the Oval Office – and Biden’s crime family kicked to the curb.

Biden’s implosion on the debate stage, before a national television audience, was legendary.  He was so bad that he got networks like CNN and MSNBC to immediately turn on him and demand that he be replaced.  The New York Times, which similarly called for Biden’s replacement, for the first time in living memory might now be more antagonistic to Biden over Trump.  The effect of this has been to further mobilize President Trump’s base, and demoralize many would-be Democratic voters, who will instead opt for a third-party candidate like Robert Kenney or check out of the election altogether.

Looks like joe’s signature, but he admitted he signs anything his staff puts in front of him.
Even caught on live mike saying,”I don’t know what I’m signing,” before being shown where to sign, then signing it.

Republicans call Trump’s move to distance himself from Project 2025 ‘preposterous’ – Trump’s claim to ‘know nothing’ about radical rightwing plan recognizes it could sink his campaign, ex-Pence adviser says

07/08/24 – Donald Trump’s “preposterous” efforts to disavow Project 2025, a rightwing blueprint for a radical takeover of the US government if the former president is re-elected in November, have been derided by former Republican figures.

The Project 2025 plan includes calls for replacing civil servants with Trump loyalists, eliminating the education department, putting the justice department under the president’s thumb and banning the abortion pill.

Democrats have made concerted efforts to say the 900-plus page document from the conservative Heritage Foundation thinktank would be representative of a second Trump presidency.

But although it was written by former members of Trump’s first administration, and he regularly echoes its policies in his speeches, last week Trump tried to disown the initiative.

Posting on his Truth Social website, the presumptive Republican nominee claimed to “know nothing about Project 2025” and have “no idea who is behind it”.

He added: “I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.”

Olivia Troye, a former White House adviser to Mike Pence who sat in on policy sessions during Trump’s first presidency, said Trump’s attempt to distance himself from Project 2025 was driven by a recognition that its deeply controversial policy prescriptions could sink his election bid.

“This is preposterous if you look at the collaborators and the authors of this plan,” she told CNN when asked whether Trump’s denial was credible. “A lot of these people…served in Trump’s cabinet during his administration. There are people that I worked with. I sat in those policy meetings with them.”

Troye identified various figures – including John McEntee, who was Trump’s director of White House personnel, Stephen Miller, a senior adviser in his first administration, Ben Carson, the housing and urban development secretary in his cabinet, and Ken Cuccinelli, a former deputy secretary of homeland security – as among the project’s leading architects.

Carson has been “out there on the campaign trail” with Trump, she noted.

“I think what this is telling us is that Donald Trump knows that what is written in this plan is so extreme that it is damaging to his possibility of getting elected, and that’s what he’s concerned about.”

“Exactly how do you ‘disagree’ with something you ‘know nothing about’ or ‘have no idea’ who is behind, saying or doing the thing you disagree with?” said former RNC Chairman and current MSNBC host Michael Steele in echoing Troye’s derision.

“And how exactly don’t you know that Project 2025 director Paul Dans served as your chief of staff at the Office of Personnel Management, and associate director Spencer Chretien served as your special assistant and associate director of presidential personnel?”

Among the plan’s more drastic proposals are to fire thousands of permanent civil servants and replace them with hired conservative Trump loyalists, dismantling the federal education department, asserting presidential power over the Department of Justice – which is nominally independent – and a ban on the abortion pill.

The Democrats, currently in the throes of a fierce internal debate over whether to retain Joe Biden as their presidential candidate, have settled on trying to make Project 2025 a household phrase in a drive to illustrate what a second Trump presidency would mean.

Troye said the project should be seen as a threat not just to Democrats but to moderate conservatives, too.

“If you go through and really read through this plan, this is complete overreach by the federal government on our individual liberties,” she said.

“[It talks] about law enforcement and how they’re going to use federal law enforcement in local states and local cities … with no oversight. Because there’s no oversight when they do that. They’ve learned all the lessons during the first Trump term, and that is what is frightening here. I think we need to be paying attention to this, and no amount of distancing by Donald Trump should be believed …I sat in [on] policy-making meetings with these people.”

Trump surrogates have tried to back up his effort to separate himself from the project, with Marco Rubio, a Republican senator from Florida who has been touted as a possible running mate for Trump, claiming in a Sunday interview with CNN that there was no connection between Project 2025 and Trump…

Only by your definition asshat.

So you approve of turning the CDC into a national anti-abortion surveillance policing tool?

Refer to Project 2025, page 455.

At least they’ll rid the nation of pornography—which they don’t bother to define—regardless of First Amendment freedom of speech and the press.

Refer to page 5:

Pornography, manifested today in the omnipresent propagation of transgender ideology and sexualization of children, for instance, is not a political Gordian knot inextricably binding up disparate claims about free speech, property rights, sexual liberation, and child welfare. It has no claim to First Amendment protection. Its purveyors are child predators and misogynistic exploiters of women. Their product is as addictive as any illicit drug and as psychologically destructive as any crime. Pornography should be outlawed. The people who produce and distribute it should be imprisoned. Educators and public librarians who purvey it should be classed as registered sex offenders. And telecommunications and technology firms that facilitate its spread should be shuttered.

Once again, the devil is in the details. We’re talking about a highly intrusive and reactive surveillance and policing operation. Bring on the Morality Police!

The administrative state is unconstitutional.

You wouldn’t actually be getting rid of it. It would simply be transformed to control things in the manner authoritarians prefer. You can’t run and protect a modern nation without a complex professional administrative apparatus.

The administrative state is unconstitutional.

Not likely skippy. We want to stay with our candidate.

Thick as a brick…

Don’t yiu wish democrats had a candidate they could back?

Anybody but Trump. Those aren’t empty words.

But the democrats do not have a candidate.

Neither are Joe and the Ho have got to go.

Why would Democrats oppose election integrity? Unless of course they intent to cheat.
https://www.dailywire.com/news/biden-formally-opposes-bill-requiring-voters-prove-citizenship?topStoryPosition=3

Because they oppose election integrity.

Yeah, there are laws in place against registering illegal immigrants to vote or illegal immigrants voting. Problem is, in Democrat districts, who will enforce the law, particularly when Democrats are ACTIVELY registering illegal immigrants to vote?

“I Don’t Care if He’s Pooped His Pants”: Whoopi Goldberg Lays Out What It Would Take for Her to Ditch Dementia Joe

Well there is one black vote for joe

That is how much the left cares about this country. They would gladly see it collapse rather than a conservative build it back up.

Does joe have a supporter who speaks out in his defense who is NOT paid, directly or indirectly, to support him?
His little young soy-boy social media mouthpiece is well paid and looked all over for “proof” that Trump “froze,” during a public appearence.
He found a clip of Trump WAITING FOR THE APPLAUSE TO STOP,” for ten seconds and posted it to X.
LOL.
I guess he’s never seen joe have to pause ten seconds for applause.
How desperate are joe’s paid “supporters?”

Trump waits for the applause to stop. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden waits for it to start, then he has to tell the audience to applaud.

You are not the first to know assassination is the only way for Dems to cling to power, and halt the election. They could always use the suddenly died weapon on Biden. Then you would have your second retard to pin your hopes on.

Comrade Greggie, you want Putin dead, you want unborn babies dead and now you’re calling for the assassination of President Trump.
What a disgusting piece of crap you are.
You’d do better to concentrate on the disaster your Democrat party is now.

Boy, you leftists ALWAYS default to violence, don’t you? That’s really woven in your DNA, isn’t it? Full fascist socialist totalitarian police state shit.

Olivia Troye, a former White House adviser to Mike Pence who sat in on policy sessions during Trump’s first presidency, said Trump’s attempt to distance himself from Project 2025 was driven by a recognition that its deeply controversial policy prescriptions could sink his election bid.

In other words, he doesn’t agree with it.

I dare any Democrat, or the liberal-biased media to say Trump, or the GOP is “extreme” on the issue of abortion.
Or to say Trump wants to take away women’s rights.
Really?
Where does it say that?
Look again.
We’ll wait.
It doesn’t even mention abortion.
It’s not a federal issue.
There goes the Democrat’s only issue.

I see even Hollywood want Biden to quit the reelection bid his popularity is crashing in flames like the Hindenburg

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has been nothing but a puppet for the far left. Obama prefers not having his name on the destructive policies, even though that is his goal. Dim wits like AOC drive Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s energy and immigration agenda. But now, he can’t even serve perform his duties as a puppet. The debate and numerous starkly public exhibitions expose the fact that it is absolutely impossible this babbling moron is in charge of anything, much less a functioning President of the United States. No one believes he’s even in charge 4 days a week from 10am to 4pm.

All the Ministry of Propaganda cares about is maintaining the DNC in power. They, obviously, don’t care about the country… countries are SO last century. They just want the Democrat to win (and, of course, Trump to fail to restore the strength and prestige of the nation). It will be most interesting if Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden survives the convention to see the media flip around again and hop back on the “sharp, dynamic, brilliant” Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden bandwagon.

It sucks to see how

many people are OK

with a guy who

confidently lies as

opposed to someone

who stutters while

telling the truth.

Did Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden lie when he said Trump said white supremacists were “fine people”? Did he lie when he claimed Trump disoriented him by shouting at him when his mic was turned off? Did he lie when he claimed HE created 15 million jobs? Did he lie when he said we finally beat Medicare?

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden lied with every statement he made in the debate and every one since. Well, every one before, as well.

who stutters while

telling the truth.

Well, it’s different for Democrats. They actually WORSHIP liars, the bigger the liar, the more following.

I’m so glad you’re going to stick with joe.
So many leading dems are currently engaged in a coup attempt against Biden, a duly elected president who won 3,896 delegates in a primary contest.
I’m looking forward to his “big boy,” press conference on Thursday.

Another attempt to adjust the strength of the drugs?

1 word..CANNIBALS
You know Joe Biden graduated 76th academically in a class of 85 students its difficult to believe there were 9 that were dumber than him.
