National Review Prognosticator: Democrats Will Win House Due to "Democrat-RINO Alliance"

This is what I imagine will happen, too. (Though I'm not sure of it.)

I mentioned in a post below that the NeverTrumpers -- who are actually the most liberal of all Republicans, but pose as the most conservative for branding purposes, and because this party has this utterly retarded I'm-more-conservative-than-you dick-measuring syndrome where no liberal Republicans can ever just admit they're liberal Republicans -- are trying to hand this election to the Democrats, because they want their precious control over the party back and they will sabotage it and empower the left until we embrace liberal Republicanism again.

So that is the less-polite version of what this article says.

RINO voters have long preferred candidates such as Bob Dole, the two George Bushes, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. So long as folks like these led the party, RINOs were happy to keep the "R" in their names even as they increasingly battled the GOP’s more conservative elements. But Trump changed all that.

Trump’s message was that America was a sinking ship, one that needed a radical change of course, and fast. Add his volatile and voluble personality to the mix and you can see why RINOs did not want to take a cruise on the SS GOP with Trump as its captain. But Trump won despite their defection.

Tuesday, however, is going to be the RINOs’ revenge. Romney-loving RINOs are coming out of their preserves with fire in their hearts and a gleam in their eyes. They are decked out in hunting gear of their own, and their prey is the Trump-backing, change-seeking GOP. They might not be able to win primaries anymore, but in league with their new friends, the Democrats, they are eager to take down some big game of their own. And they will.

The new Democrat–RINO alliance is going to retake the House, sweep the GOP out of governor’s mansions in most purple states, and end the careers of hundreds of suburban state legislators. In the Senate, it will most likely hold Republicans to a one- or two-seat gain despite an incredibly favorable map -- and may even win the Democrats a seat. Come Wednesday, the RINOs will mount their trophies on their walls and resolve to continue the hunt until the big game is caught: the orange-plumed woodpecker from Queens.

Several points:

Remember when the liberal RINOs controlling the party would brow-beat you into supporting whatever RINO they had chosen as an acceptable, liberal-leaning candidate for the party? Remember when they'd tell you you had to vote for Romney, McCain, etc.?

Well, witness their own behavior when they think they're not being deferred to enough.

Also, keep this in mind: this contingent of liberal Republicans -- RINOs -- have long claimed that they oppose Trump because he's not conservative enough to satisfy their super-duper TruConservative requirements.

When Trump delivers one conservative agenda victory after another, instead of saying "Yay, as a super-duper TruCon, that's just what I wanted!!!" they snipe about tone and manners and tweets.

It's always been a con. As I mentioned, they are liberal, urban, socially-progressive, pro-gay-marriage, pretty much pro-choice (granted, so am I on that, but I wouldn't claim that I should get to overrule 85% of the party due to my individual wishes), open borders RINOs who control a party whose largest block of voters is genuine conservatives, so they have been lying and lying and lying for years about their true political preferences.

This is why they're always selling us out with Failure Theater or, as Mark Levin calls it, "Play-Fight and Then Surrender." They have to pretend they're fighting for the conservative agenda items they're in fact adamantly, viscerally opposed to, and then cutting deals with Democrats to make sure the liberal position prevails but in a way that appears they did their Utmost to Resist.

Well, now these liars and cross-dressers have very little mask left on their faces. They are liberals. They never opposed Trump because they feared he'd be too liberal; they opposed Trump because he was not beholden to the liberal corporate donor structure and therefore might turn out to be too conservative.

Which is exactly what happened.

If these people were really Super Conservative as they claim, they'd be supporting Trump as being an upside surprise.

Instead, they still pretend they're Super-Duper-Conservative and just are now fixated on his unconservative tweeting habits.

But no one buys this. They party has been taken -- temporarily -- from the clutches of the urban, socially-liberal, corporatist RINO class that has held it in an iron grip for decades, and they are going to try to throw their second election running in order to hold the party hostage until we agree to put the party back in the hands of liberals.

This is why it's important to vote. We have not "Won" anything. We did not seize the controls of the plane, as the flight 93 election thesis has it. We merely occupied the cockpit for a short amount of time, and if the liberals who have controlled this party and who are determined to be our masters get their way and throw this election, they will put Maxine Waters into the position as head of the Financial Services Committee, Adam Schiff as head of the Government Oversight Committee, etc.

The "Democrat-RINO alliance" aims to sabotage Trump's term and indeed sabotage the economy itself to make sure that a liberal Democrat candidate wins in 2020, because that's the only way the liberal Republicans can set themselves up as the Necessary Evil you need to put in command for 2024.

If we win -- if we hold the House -- then we can tell them, "We can win with you or without you, and therefore we do not need you, and therefore you will have to accept a diminished junior role in the party, rather than being in control of it."

If they win -- and manage to do what they could not do in 2016, which is to throw an election to their Democrat co-conspirators and Cocktail Party pals -- they will say "We are indespensible, and we will vote Democrat in every race from here on out until you put us back where we deserve to be, into the Rulership Positions of this party, instructing the crazy Hobbits and wack-a-doos what 'real conservatism' is."

Spoiler alert: "Real Conservatism" for the Cruise Cuck Boys just happens to resemble the Democrat Party platform except with some deeply, deeply insincere rhetoric about the pro-life position (which they will make sure never becomes actual policy) and open borders immigration policies (which is only different from the Democrats' position in that the RINOs want to pretend it's not open borders, whereas Democrats are now comfortable embracing the true name of the position) and some favors for their corporate donors.

Which isn't even any different from the Democrats; they, of course, suck up huge amounts of corporate contributions too, and do as many favors for mega-corporations as the cucks do.


Vote like your country's life depended on it -- because it does.

I Forgot To Mention: "Mainstream Republicans" vote at high rates. This includes liberal Republicans.

However, Trump-supporting Republicans vote more like minorities or young people -- they might vote, but most of them probably won't.

Point is, we do have the power to impose our will on the RINOs -- but there's a very good chance we'll just blow it off, and then just curse impotently when Bill Kristol, AllahPundit, David French, Jonah Goldberg, and the rest of the liberal RINO gang is doing their victory laps tomorrow night.

A victory we could have denied them -- but didn't bother doing so.

Jump on RCP and look at the "leans D" and "likely D" races -- based on scant or no polling. Many of these are districts that Trump won.

The only way you call those "likely D" or "lean D" is if you assume the turnout is going to be much more D-heavy then it was in 2016.

Which is what all pollsters and political people are assuming. It's not a terrible assumption, historically the party out of power has more enthusiasm to get out and vote.

...but I don't know if that's a safe assumption to make this time.

77 Again we're probably going to lose the House due to historical trends and not as some sort of grand RINO-Dem alliance.

They will tell you it means Trump is finished when even they don't believe it. It's what usually happens. Of course I'll be ecstatic if we hold on to it just to own the libs if nothing else. I doubt holding on to it for another two years will produce better results than the last two years.

Anyway we're in the middle of something far larger than ourselves or political parties. There will be setbacks. There will be times when it appears all hope is lost. These things seldom move in a straight line. How nice that would be! But it's not how it happens.

Don't despair and for God's sake I don't want to come here and see anyone saying how they cried for their country because the Dems won a mid-term election that was probably going to happen no matter what (And if it happens it probably might not have happened at all if the fucking cucks in Congress had moved Trump's agenda through instead of playing fucky fucky with tax cuts and doing nothing else. I think that's going to cause some of the losses we'll probably see. They didn't do their job in supporting Trump so of what use are you?).

MAGA is not over because the Dems take half of Congress. MAGA wouldn't be over if they took both chambers of Congress. MAGA would not be over if Trump was impeached and removed from office.

Vote. Do your civic duty. And hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

101 I am fascinated at "early voting" patterns which seem to suggest that Rs are higher than expected to be at this point. One might assume that is due to more Rs voting early than they traditionally would.

But what if the higher vote tallies for Rs in early voting are NOT from Rs who broke pattern and voted early, but from Ds who broke pattern and voted R? (i.e. the so called "WalkAway" voter.)

In which case, the Rs should expect to have an absolute field day tomorrow.

All these guys have is a megaphone that's getting smaller by the day. They don't speak for a movement or anything else. The RINOs already changed teams two years ago, so the notion that NOW they will come out and vote is b.s.

Since 1990, the only time a party has won 3 elections in a a row was 00, 02, 04 for the GOP. And 02 was kind of a fluke due to 9/11. Other than that, it's win 1 or 2, then lose 1 or 2, win, lose, win, lose, repeat forever.

121 RINOs were not much enamored with George W. Bush in his first term. They weren't happy about him running and they didn't much like his judicial picks - W tried his best on judges; I don't hold Benedict Roberts against him .. no one knew the guy was such a treasonous twerp at the time. Yeah .. they liked his unabashed open borders mentality, even right after 9/11 and they liked some of his spending but they didn't trust his Christian belief (which was what kept him in good stead - attempting, at least, in judges).

When RINOs got to love W was for his second term, when he basically stopped listening to Cheney and Rumsfeld and turned to Condi and Colon and did a violent turn leftwards. The train wreck that was Bush's second term ... that's when the RINOs really took to him.

123 There's a chance that he GOPes in the GOP will ally with the Dems but I'm extremely skeptical for three reasons.

First, they don't get along. At all. Even in the broadest "F Trump" sense. The house is where the more rude and radical of politicians get into office, and with Dems that means its the "we should rip unborn babies out of women's wombs to use as torches to burn down churches" kind of Dem. Even the RINO doesn't get along with that kinda crazy.

Second, there really aren't that many GOPe types in the house. Not enough to make a big difference, at least.

Third, the GOP is figuring out that while they may not like Trump, he knows how to win and get things done and that's not only infectious but sells back home. And they like that.

145 Guys, 89% of Democrats plan to vote Democrat. The figure with Republicans? 77%.

About 15% of the party is liberal. Basically, there are some "Republicans" who are essentially Democrats except for ONE, SINGLE POINT OF DISAGREEMENT with Democrats. There are Pro-Life Liberals, for example -- yes, they're conservative on the life issue, and therefore nominal republicans, but they are liberal on all other things.

Same with the Democrats' anti-Israel position, or the Democrats blame-america-first position.

Or they're upset that the Democrats don't do ENOUGH favors for their corporate donors. (Even though the Democrats in fact do a LOT!)

There just are a lot of nominal Republicans who don't feel comfortable with the Democrats as they are but if they changed one position, they'd be happy Democrats.

That's why this group opposes us on virtually everything -- because they don't believe in conservative stuff, except for the Single Issue of Dissent from their real party (the Democrats).

Somehow they think they still have a monopoly on where we get our news.

This is why this onslaught this year with accounts being banned and other shenanigans. The left and their willing dope the NT's suddenly realized we were using the internet to find out the truth.

Can't have that so bingo bango bongo techies start chopping heads and lo and behold nothing happens in congress over it.

Pretty much dead silence.

All the enemies are lined up:

The dems, the fascists, the NT's, the deep state are all vying for voters to anoint them with the crown so they can then finish what was supposed to be done during Hillary's first 2 years.

Probably the best we can hope for is a draw and a few seats in the Senate. But that won't be enough to stop the deep state and they're the real threat. They'll be the ones to kill Trump's next 2 years. The House won't be able to do anything but neither will Trump and the Deepstate will be able to coverup and make more trouble.

"Official Republican DC" -- all the flunkies who make up the bureaucracy and think-tank posts and fundraising slots and etc -- are urban liberal Republicans too, or almost all of them.

A friend put it like this:

The Democrat Donor Class is much more leftwing than the democrat base, so they're always pulling the party to the left.

But the Republican Donor class is ALSO much more leftwing than the Republican base, so they're ALSO always pulling the party to the left.

So the net trajectory for the country is, of course, always to the left.

Trump is the only hammer big enough to break this dynamic.

211 >>anyway, point is, this RINO Hole has to be filled in somehow, and I hope that some wasn't-planning-to-vote Trump supporters change their minds and actually vote.

There were quite a few Obama Democrats who voted for Trump in 2016 for some of the reasons you outlined. Many traditional Democrats have lost their Party as the Democrat Party drifts further left.

Blue Dogs or economic/national security Democrats have no place in the modern Democrat Party. They do with the new Trump Republican Party. And while they might not be as vocal as NeverTrumpers, certainly they don't get the media attention of the cruises, they are a large and growing segment of voters. Trump could not have won without them. And he has been out whipping them into a frenzy for weeks.

We might lose the House. If these were ordinary times, we would lose the House. But I don't think it's because of the power of the NeverTrump typing monkey brigade in DC. They have increasingly limited appeal and they are preaching mainly to themselves at this point.

What's funny is that Trump IS growing the GOP. What's his approval rating among minorities? Didn't he outpoll Mighty Mitt among Hispanics?

Goldberg is utterly blinded by his own considerable bulk. Trump has brought blue-collar labor into the party. He's at 40 percent with black Americans, which is unheard of.

By the way, if that number is remotely accurate, it's going to be a huge sweep. Heck, if only 20 percent go for the GOP it's wipeout territory.

Posted by: Brian in New Orleans at November 05, 2018 06:44 PM (rnXGe)


In that scenario, the Democrat party cuts it's own throat and dies. For 50+ years.
They can impeach, they can hose the budget, whatever in the House, but they can't get that by the Senate.
Stock Market will level off (which will be a good thing), our trade will remain steady, and -- (god willing), if they produce NO budgets, it's the end of the asinine government funded colleges and 'safe spaces'.

Win.Win.Win.

They've spent two years psychologically terrorizing not just America, but their own base. Even the Doritos and Bong crowd are going to show up. A vote for any drooling retard with a D after their name promises to be a soothing balm to a psyche on fire for the last 24 months.

The good thing, and there are good things that will happen even if the Dems win, is that they won't be able to do much. They're not going to stop another potential SCOTUS pick (maybe two or even three it's absolutely a possibility). They're not stopping Trump from cramming the fed judiciary with judges. They're not stopping Trump from realigning and reworking foreign and trade policy.

And let's mention the most obvious thing: these people can't stop stomping on their own dicks. They're dumb people and who can't stop dummying it up. What they really need is very strict message control and they don't have it. If they try impeachment, I think it could go badly for them in 2020. If they don't start impeachment their own base will mutiny. Either way should provide plenty of popcorn worthy moments (amplified by Trump of course who isn't going to put his neck out for these ghouls so they can cut it).

So again, vote. Do your civic duty. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. DO NOT CRY. MAGA continues forward beyond tomorrow.

274 I think it's important to establish we COULD win, as a helpless attitude breeds inaction, and therefore, anticipation of failure breeds failure, a self-fulfilling prophecy.

However, once you've established you CAN win, that's only the first part of it -- now that you have the attitude that you CAN win, you can't just say "Well, we have high spirits."

That's what Hillary Clinton did in Wisconsin.

No, having bought into the idea you CAN win IF you do the right things, the next step is to do those right things necessary for actually winning.

"Enthusiasm" itself doesn't win elections. The enthusiasm is just a feeling. It has to be translated into actual concrete, real-world action to mean anything.

And look, polls say Trump supporters are just not as high-propensity voters as the rest of the GOP (which includes liberal Republicans).

And that's people self-reporting.

"actual polling"?

Seriously? They actually contacted every one of those early voters, or did they do the usual telephone bullshit, get the result they liked and ran with it.

Right now Michigan polling has huge spreads - polls for the office are 15 points apart. Trump was 9 points behind Hillary according to the all-knowing polls and guess what? He won.

278 My favorite analysis is Salena Zito's about "King Cyrus Christians". After decades of being lectured by the GOPe that we weren't pragmatic enough, well, we decided to be. Maybe Trump isn't David French's ideal pastor or even choir director. So what? He's given us what we needed - someone to fight for us, unlike the "Gee, we tried, but dang it all, the court (or Congress, or Bureaus) went the other way."

I realize that Zito's example was mostly about Evangelicals, but I cannot see how any conservative Catholic can see it otherwise. Not after Little Sisters. And any other denomination, or Jews, who are watching must see what is involved. That's one thing Obama said he'd do, and did. For religious conservatives of every (non-Moslem) stripe, he did bring us together. Except for French, of course.

I disagree. The Doritos and Bong crowd are some lazy fucks and if all they've heard for the past several months is that a Blue Wave is guaranteed they are much less likely to get off their asses to vote. The people who put Trump in realize their vote matters for the first time ever.
That's just my gut. The R's could lose 50 seats or win 50 seats and I wouldn't be surprised. None of the pollsters or talking heads know shit.

306 when in fact actual polling says that only 77% of GOP voters plan to vote for the GOP candidate (contrasted with 89% of Democrats who plan to vote Democrat). 

I'm not concern trolling. (This is ace, by the way.)

Dude. This isn't a lower propensity to vote, it's crossing to the other side. You're an operator, so by now you've seen enough of Trump to know how a winner thinks and how a loser thinks. Say, "The Dems will steal this thing if it's close, and they take the popular vote as the Mandate of Heaven. Fuck them up!"

Not "Here's my excuse for the loss we are going to have." That's loser talk.

311 Blue Dogs or economic/national security Democrats have no place in the modern Democrat Party. They do with the new Trump Republican Party. And while they might not be as vocal as NeverTrumpers, certainly they don't get the media attention of the cruises, they are a large and growing segment of voters. Trump could not have won without them. And he has been out whipping them into a frenzy for weeks.

We might lose the House. If these were ordinary times, we would lose the House. But I don't think it's because of the power of the NeverTrump typing monkey brigade in DC. They have increasingly limited appeal and they are preaching mainly to themselves at this point.

Posted by: JackStraw at November 05, 2018 06:50 PM (/tuJf)

Trump Democrats do not want to vote for CoC Republicans. Neither do I come to think of it. What needs to happen is to run Trump Republicans in those areas for House seats. It hasn't happened because guess who courts the potential candidates for those races? CoC Republicans through the RNC and associated bodies.

And other polls show her up by 14 or 16 or whatever. They're all over the place.

Polling is based on what they think the electorate is going to look like. But what if it changed? What if the black vote has shifted? Would polling detect that, or would they simply assume they're oversampling black conservatives who they *know* only make up 10 percent of the black vote?

No one has a clue what the electorate is going to do, which is why taking this crap poll which just happens to feed *perfectly* into the Never Trump myth is so self-defeating.

I am seeing no complacency in my neck of the woods where we have taken the local Republican party committee from the RINOs and have been growing like gangbusters (including at least two members who voted for Obama, were severely disappointed, and are now politically active and becoming more conservative as they learn more). The RINOs we took to party from, BTW, will mostly be voting Republican (some may split off to vote for Kaine phttew). We are energized and ready to go tomorrow.

374 There was a simmering rage in the US in the runup to the 2016 election, and Trump was the manifestation.

The Democrats managed to fully re-ignite that rage with their despicable behavior during the Kavanaugh nomination.

They must be punished. Electorally.

I wouldn't go that far, but certainly 2016 showed that the pollsters can be so wrong as to be ignorable. 95% Hillary? That's like a weather forecaster saying 80 degrees and sunny, and it turns out to be 30 degrees and snowing.

Why do we always get concern trolls every cycle? Because they hope they can pull off a few votes. Polling serves the same role imho.

378 This is pretty much right. The cucks/liberal RINO's still would like to keep the Senate for the time being because their influence lingers there. That said...if the House stays GOP tomorrow it wouldn't be a huge shock and would be especially sweet since so many squishes retired to help their corporate RINO overlords regain power.

Vote.

There was extra heavy group think going on before Trump was a proven commodity about "bad example to our children" and other virtue signalling and false justification for squishy R's.

Now that he's actually delivering the goods in an objective right of center manner, the remnants of the still NeverTrumpers are really the NeverCons who have permanently taken off their masks and are waiting for a European style schism of political landscape to take place to join back in.

Also this is a much more indirect non Trump election.

452 And yet early vote turnout among R voters is up bigly for a midterm where it is measured. Historic levels. Meanwhile, early vote for the Democrats appears to be down from previous elections. I guess National Review expects me to believe that the increased turnout is from angry RINOs who, what, sat out the election last time? And they are all turning out to vote against Trump?

And this is also contrary to something I heard DeSantis say the other day, that their data is telling them that a large number of the early GOP vote, at least in Florida, is coming from people who rarely if at vote on midterms. That doesn't sound like angry RINOs to me.

It was the gospel of Globalism. It primarily dealt with business and how they're all linked together regardless of nation states or governments or groups of people. He said corporations run everything and eventually they would run the entire world.

Paddy was a prophet because it's absolutely incredible he predicted it, and a full decade plus before Soviet communism collapsed. Globalism couldn't exist because you couldn't simply set up a factory in a Shithole and undercut the workers back home because there was a good chance a communist insurgency was underway and if they came to power you'd lose everything.

How did that work out for him in Ohio?) and 2. a loss of wimpy NeverTrumpers will be balanced by the Walkaway Dems who have finally recognized their party is batshit insane.

THis... I got a wake up call on what's really going on when I did a visit to my parents recently (both in late eighties). I expected them to be a little put off by Trump's antics. They are old school when propriety is involved (grammar correcting old school of complete strangers).

Well, let's put it this way. Mom voted early and went straight red ticket...Dad likes the pageantry of putting on a suit and driving to the polling place all on election day. He's going all republican as well.

Now, here's the kicker. I got a lecture from both of them that I better get in there and vote so that President Trump gets the support he deserves. I then got a lecture on the deep state, Clinton's latest racist comments, and how Jeff Sessions needs to be "put out to pasture where he can stand around with all the other dairy cows staring at passing cars."

472 I just can't see more R's being turned off by Trump in 2018 than they were in 2016 as a percentage (and we still won). There was extra heavy group think going on before Trump was a proven commodity about "bad example to our children" and other virtue signalling and false justification for squishy R's.

Now that he's actually delivering the goods in an objective right of center manner, the remnants of the still NeverTrumpers are really the NeverCons who have permanently taken off their masks and are waiting for a European style schism of political landscape to take place to join back in.

Also this is a much more indirect non Trump election.
I just don't see any significant number R voters going out of their way and motivated to hurt Candidates (RINOS or otherwise) in order to "Stop Trump"

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Having said that, I certainly think the D vote will be more intense and have a stronger motivated (by anti Trump delirium) turnout than typical midterms and may very well have an impact on the outcome.

And then along comes Trump. And instead of offering more handouts, he actually provides real JOBS through fair trade agreements.

But this isn't "expanding the GOP" according to Jonah Goldberg, because it doesn't include enough affluent squishes. To Goldberg, black voters are invisible and unworthy of attention. Better to gain a handful of RINOs in northern Virginia than shift the entire voting loyalty of 13 percent of the population.

Goldberg and his ilk are in the "shoot me last" division. They don't think of themselves as part of the people but above it, and the reason they aren't Democrats is that they don't even want to pretend they are for the regular man in the street. Back in the day the NRO crowd was the ultra elite fighting the Dems in the eastern Elite dens. Now the new generation doesn't have any actual accomplishments to make elite pretentions even understandable. The bulk of the Republicans even back then cared little for the NRO Ivy League Rs, this bunch isn't worth spit.

---------------------

Their realization only appeared sudden. It wasn't sudden. The Left is always about three years ahead of where they seem to be. The internet takeover has been planned for a LONG time. Probably why Bambi sold it off to Europe (not sure about that though).

The bannings were going to start with a quickness under Her Hagness due to "threats to national security and the WH". Can you imagine?

Two things:

(2) Current Governor John Hickenlooper will announce he's in the presidential race.

Hickenlooper actually acts reasonable, which is the scary part.

614 interesting article on in Politico today on how Beto "Blew it". It doesn't take much reading between the lines to get that the GOP-E, which in Texas is basically the Bush Family + the CoC and their hangers on, has always hated Cruz and have been itching for a "moderate" dem that they could support and use to knock Cruz out of his seat. But Beto went all hard core open-borders Impeach Trump I hate white people, and even the GOP-e couldn't get on board with that. The article quotes "republicans" who tried to tell the Beto campaign what he needed to say to win, and how disappointed they are that Beto ignored them and played to his hard core out of state prog base instead.

My sources tell me that your body is currently at or above maximum capacity with the by-products of digested food.

Mainstream (middle-class) Republicans vote at high rates but only a small percentage of them are NeverTrump liberals. As for the blue-collar Republicans, they didn't vote in midterms because they didn't feel that they had anything to vote for. This year they do.

Have you been watching Trump's rallies? Obama on his best day couldn't whip up a crowd the way Trump does, and they would have to offer free beer and bratwurst along with free concerts by big-name singers just to fill the venues.

Change elections happen when times are bad. We currently have peace and prosperity.

This is a common belief on the Left - that the road to victory solely lies in mobilizing the Democratic base groups, since Republicans are icky and fascist, and will all soon be dead anyway.

No, it really can't be. Trump beat 15 people for the nomination, beat Hillary and has done nothing but exactly what he said he was going to do and produced a record economy, great judges, etc.. There is no way his support has gone down, if anything it has grown in size and intensity.

He's drawing bigger crowds now than he did during the 2016 election. It's astounding how much support he is getting. The only question is can he translate that support to the various Rep and Senate candidates and help drag them over the line but there really isn't any question about his personal support.

Got frustrated as hell at the Gray Davis recall, when we had a real chance to elect Tom McClintock and got Arnold Schwartzenhamster instead ("it's California! He's electable!). With a few brilliant exceptions, California's GOP is feckless. So, I said, feck them.

i think a lot of people who voted that pattern are simply apolitical, and approach a presidential election as an episode of Survivor or Dancing With The Stars.

They want to vote for a personality.

Obama offered a fresh, hopeful, kumbaya kinda aura first time around, and second time around all he had to do was sit there and let Mitt Romney look like Mitt Romney.

Trump vs. Hillary? In a battle of personality? No contest.

Now, how that analysis transfers into a midterm election is anybody's guess. I really believe we're in uncharted territory right now.

We're talking 40% theoretical, "yeah I guess Trump's been doing okay"; versus 90+% practical, "I'm voting for the person Of My Background here in Florida / Georgia".

give Trump what he needs to get the job done.

I think he's right. I'll be pulling the red lever here in Crook County just to make them count it and hope for a small long shot.

680 Now, how that analysis transfers into a midterm
election is anybody's guess. I really believe we're in uncharted
territory right now.

Totally agree with the uncharted territory.

681 nah Brah

For every RINO who has exposed himself as a globohomo licking the nutsacks of bankers and warmongers, there are 20 union member dems who walked away, a dozen black dem inner city dwellers who walked away, and 100 dudes tired of pretending they could put up with their magenta haired shrill harpie girlfriends for a minute longer who walked away. More than a few women of all stripes have walked away, now that they see more pay coming into their households, contrary to the dire predictions of Paul Krugman and his coterie of women's studies professors.

More than just the masks of the RINOs that have fallen away.

683 very interesting on McCallum's show on Fox:

On voter key issues, the independents were much more closely aligned with the Rs than the Ds.

And they especially didn't like Barky as a D spokesperson. Heh

684 " Someone has to have a video where they shoot old body armor to see what would happen to the meat on the other side.



Lookin' at you, Paul Harrell. "

Old military stuff that didn't get used overseas tends to hold up really well, at roughly a IIIA level of performance.

Used cop armor is generally in bad shape unless it's the nicer stuff that has individual waterproof covers for each panel, but even then, it's going be be like buying a used jock strap.

Get regular Kevlar and its variants, new or used - it's the most durable. Avoid Twaron and Dyneema soft armor. Some of that other stuff doesn't work worth a damn against contact shots, and some manufacturers were idiots and failed to protect their material from light exposure as they should.

$200-$250 will get you a moderately decent new IIIA vest. Don't be afraid to search Ebay for firms that sell Israeli stuff. Also quite a bunch of new-old-stock good brand name concealable cut armor in tan/military colors that was intended for contractors.

Just the opposite ...

686 Mia Love issued a statement in October of 2016 that she would not vote for candidate Donald Trump. She also said in January of 2018 that his reported comments about "shithole countries" were racist and demanded an apology.

On the other hand she votes with Trump's position 96% of the time which is more than I expected to see when I looked it up.

687 The Democreep party may be panicking in the People's Republic of New Jersey. I got a robo-call tonight, a recorded message from Spartacus hisself urging me to come out and vote tomorrow to "help stop Donald Trump." I live in a red area of a blue state. No political party has called here for years. The last Democrook I voted for was Jimmy Carter over 4 decades ago. The last thing I plan to do is help Spartacus and Sticky Menendez stop Donald Trump. If these SOBs are wasting their time and money calling me, they must've gone thru the bottom of the barrel already and are digging their way to China.

688 Early vote story is grim for Dems everywhere, except NV, where it's still not good news.

Not magic signs of the future, but much much better than polling.

MI Senate remains my favorite upset hope, and polls there have been showing near-tie, which gives real hope.

And it's possible eastern time "key" House races may make it an early night, as far as House. If no/little Dem success in east - to include some FL seats in danger of flipping GOP, and that NH seat - then Dem path to taking House gets much narrower.

689 The company I work for... the Owner and her Office Manager are both Deep Blue Dems.

Either of them would gladly slobber all over Beto Robert Francis if they had the chance.

As it happens, the boss scheduled the annual Staff Meeting...her, the office and all the drivers, for 9 am this Wednesday morning.

If things go right Tuesday night, I expect to be met by a very grouchy boss, with both she and the Office Manager wearing black, and trying to hide the the red-rimmed, tear ravaged eyes.

It will be GLORIOUS.

690 How much difference do these Never Trump "opinion shapers" really make, especially to
voters aligned with Trump? Are there millions of voters having their opinions shaped by these weasels? Or are they mostly just pissing into the wind?

In terms of getting out the conservative vote and keeping this thing of ours rolling, the Democrats have played a role that dwarfs any negative effect of essays or TV discussions by these RINO maggots: public railroading attempts, illegal alien caravan, and violent mobs and all the rest. Visual and visceral rather than refined and cerebral.

After 2012 I'm prepared for the worst, but you know, the Democrats' dream of a world without rules cuts both ways.

691 I have many friends and acquaintances that are very pro Trump. I have a a lesser number of friends or aquaintences that are very anti Trump and/or pro democrat. I have NEVER met a single regular person who thinks or votes like Kristal et al. Their money, party influence etc may affect elections but their voting bloc is smaller in number than transsexuals. So I disagree with the premise of this article.

692 My 86 yr old dad is in ICU and asked me to make sure he got an absentee ballot so he could vote. It came in the mail today and took it up to him. He filled it out, signed it and sealed it. I drove 24 miles to deliver it to our County Elections office today. There are a lot of these quiet voters.

693 "i hope so, but... a large chunk of the RINOs are voting Democrat and the Trump coalition is just not as disciplined when it comes to voting as the main force of the GOP."

Clueless bullshit.

694 Keep in mind that Lindsey Graham... LINDSEY GRAHAM?!?... has seen the light and he was one of the RINOiest of RINOs. The good ship Kristol is not nearly as crowded as NR imagines it is.
Posted by: redbanzai the Southerner at November 05, 2018 06:44 PM (F/KeJ)


Lindsey Graham is not to be trusted, he will go to bat for a fellow RINO but he will throw you or I under the bus in the blink of an eye.

Lindsey Graham is still the same snake-in-the-grass he was before Kavanaugh.

697 Trump is a consistent winner. He'll win the day tomorrow, too, despite not being on the ballot.

Posted by: Locke Common at November 05, 2018 09:15 PM (yM7Is)

698 From an earlier comment:
"MAGA is not over because the Dems take half of Congress. MAGA wouldn't be over if they took both chambers of Congress. MAGA would not be over if Trump was impeached and removed from office. "

It would be over, and we would not have another candidate like him because no Republican at the national level has the courage and funds to do what he's done. As a base, we refuse to help GOTV.

699 Mrs. Went to see trump today. Said he looked great. She was very happy after the rally. Full house in Cleveland. People standing outside. I think it's gonna be a good day tomorrow. He was very relaxed and confident. Renacci gonna be close. DeWine also.

700 Ace is right as far as it goes, but let's remember that McCain and Romney won the GOP primary with the same process Trump did. They were not my choices in the primary, but nobody is going to claim they were worse than Obama.

But as my old buddy Rush Limbaugh said, back in the days I could listen to him daily in the 80's: "we probably needed to go thru Carter to get to Reagan." If we needed Obama to get Trump, well then, my only quibble is why did we need 8 fucking years, why couldn't 4 have been enough?

701 Apart from, say, Bill Kristol, Mitt Romney, Jonah Goldberg, David French, Brett Stephens ... who are we talking about? Writings like this seem aimed at a specific group. Did I get most of them, or are there a bunch more?

703 A good, historical analysis of the RINOs. Rush Limbaugh led me on to
this several years ago, but not as graphic and succinct as this descriptionby the Ace.

Hopefully, most God-loving Americans will vote to keep President
Trump (and thank God, again, not President 'her') free of the liberalsand Democrats and other riff-raff who would change our country to a fulland God-less society, with the libs in control from here on out.

Posted by: demoncrat at November 06, 2018 07:15 AM (i1/SQ)

709 Regardless of whether the republicans keep or loose the house, the republican party is changing during this election. Nearly all of the "retiring" republicans whose seats are now "up for grabs" are liberals. Some of those seats may end up in democrat hands, but many of them will be filled by actual conservative republicans.

Even if the republicans loose the house, the Tea Party will win this election.
