  2. I’m back again here to tell you TW how much I appreciate this post. It gave me a much needed shot in the arm and further validates my thoughts on Trump’s popularity. The left enjoys painting him as a ruthless businessman from NYC who is totally out of touch with the working class.

    Instead, the left is out of touch. Want to know why Trump (the wealthier man) was always more popular than Romney?

    He is from Queens! (Yeah, yeah, the father was wealthy but never in the same league as his son.)

    The bad haircut, the aggressive tweets and sometimes incorrect grammar manage to endear him to everybody. The working class looks at him and believes if he can do it, so can I! I’m not a member of the working class but I am the most inspired supporter of all because I remember where my ancestors came from.

  3. Before getting too excited, keep in mind that “approve” does not necessarily translate into votes. Take a moment to see how the poll questions were phrased. None of pollsters asked if respondents would vote for Trump.

    Also bear in mind that such support is soft. Given that the black community have been voting ~90% for Democrats for decades, how likely do you imagine that this change is sticky? People are fickle; they shift like the wind. Suddenly one day, Kanye gets annoyed with Trump and the party’s over.

    I predict that exit polls will show <20% black vote for Trump next November. I’d be happy to be proven wrong then.

  4. P.S. Who is loving Lara Trump? I am impressed with her remarkable composure and ability to cut to the chase. Eric Trump did well for himself.

    Watch her on Fox.

    Agreed.   I have only recently begun to think more optimisticly about the 2020 presidential race, but I still think it will be a close call.   We are vulnerable to surprises.

    Only in 2020 the October Surprise will not come from Democrats or Media.  It will be Big Tech who weigh in with their thumbs on the scale.

    Here is a discussion of how close things might be:

  6. The only reason this race might be close is due to voting fraud.  It is rampant, and I’m surprised Trump hasn’t championed this issue.  The machines need to go to a landfill, and all votes should be in indelible ink on actual paper, filled out by proven citizens who registered at least a month before to allow time for verification, a la Ronnie.

    I think the difference this time is that important blacks are willing to back or praise Trump. I don’t remember that happening that before. Also I think the method of showing that the Democrats really doesn’t care about that community. Trump has been getting great things done and if he can communicate it he will change the 90% support figure. It would not surprise me if it is above 20 %.

    I SOOOO agree. If we go to all electronic voting, we will never know who won.

    And additionally: early voting has to go.  We should all speak at once.

    Pls don’t advocate this! I had dual voting rights in both CA and FL for many years, but because of early voting I was always permitted to cast my vote in FL. It would have been wasted in CA and many people need to remember that voters often own 2-3 homes and can vote wherever they like. And yes, they manage to get around the ‘residency requirements’ quite easily. My uncle who owned a home and business in Vermont but voted in Florida and paid no state income tax taught me all the ins and outs of this one.

    I think a person is only legally supposed to vote where she is “domiciled”.and that, while it is possible to have more than one domicile for tax purposes, that doesn’t apply to voting. Otherwise “snowbirds”as we mountain folk call the  people who fly south in winter,could vote twice.

    You are correct. I was not able to vote twice but I had the right to choose where to domicile because I owned property and spent roughly equal amts of time in both states. Unfortunately, as November is the start of the holiday season, I was rarely able to physically vote in FL because my biz was in CA. Thank goodness for early voting in FL- October! My vote counted there…

    Very valid point but in my old and new districts, we’re still required to present voter i.d. Where is this not happening?

    In Maryland it is illegal for precinct workers to ask for an ID.
