Nearly two-thirds of American voters surveyed say that President Donald Trump “has not been truthful” about the investigation into Russian 2016 election interference and a possible conspiracy between his campaign and Russia.
A woman said Monday that a Bladen County, N.C., Republican election official paid her to illegally collect absentee ballots from the November 6 midterm elections.
Absentee ballot witness Ginger Eason told WSOCTV, a local news station in Charlotte, that the official, McCrae Dowless, paid her between $75 and $100 to take completed absentee ballots from the voters. She said she took the ballots and then never mailed them, depriving the individuals of their legal right to vote in the election.
The 2018 midterm elections have turned into a referendum on President Donald Trump. He has made sure of that by holding dozens of campaign rallies all over the country.
But the elections will also be a referendum on his brazen campaign strategy, where he has taken lying to an entirely new level.
On Wednesday Donald Trump attacked Paul Ryan in what many believe was an attempt by the president to deflect blame in advance of a crushing Republican defeat in Tuesday’s midterm elections. It appears that Trump needs a scapegoat and he did not hesitate at all to throw the retiring Speaker of the House under the bus.
The statistical website FiveThirtyEight gives the Democratic Party an 86 percent chance of winning the House next Tuesday which is not a sure thing.
But recent travels by President Donald Trump prove that the Republican Party has given up all hope of retaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Because of Republican gerrymandering, it is widely believed that Democrats need an advantage of approximately six percent in the national popular vote if they are to win control of the House of Representatives.
Pattie Blair, 74, a Democratic voter in Arizona, says that whenever she sees Donald Trump on television an intense wave of anger washes over her.
“It’s the most negative, blackest place to find yourself,” Blair said. “It’s like being in a bucket you can’t get yourself out of – a hand keeps pushing you back in every time you try to surface.”
It is very clear that all Republicans, but especially President Donald Trump, are growing increasingly desperate as the midterm elections grow near.
While they had initially planned to base their November campaigns on the great economy and the wonderful benefits of their tax plan, they have discovered that those ideas aren’t working.
If they win a majority in November, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will re-open the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. They would like to investigate a lot of other things about Donald Trump also, including his family, his business associates and his cabinet members. But they will have to be selective in what they investigate, according to experts on the subject.
The 2018 elections could see the highest turnout for a midterm since the mid-1960s, according to an elections expert who has been studying voting patterns. In fact, based on evidence to date, it could be the highest midterm election turnout ever.
Conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, a longtime Republican, warned her party on Tuesday that Donald Trump has “unleashed a pink resistance that will transform American politics forever.”
Recently Republicans and the mainstream media have been promoting the narrative that Republicans are tightening the race for control of the U.S. House of Representatives. But a new Washington Post/ABC News poll contradicts this narrative, showing Democrats with a very strong 11 percentage point lead in the generic congressional ballot. And independent women voters favor Democrats by an astounding 33 percentage points.
Republicans in Congress are packing the agenda for their lame-duck session after the November 6th midterm elections. Clearly they are worried about losing control and know this may be their last chance to set the agenda for several years.
With Hurricane Michael on a path to devastate 300 miles of northwest Florida coastline tomorrow afternoon, Florida Democrats want the voter registration deadline extended.
Michael is bringing to Florida’s northern Gulf Coast its most serious hurricane threat in decades, and the National Hurricane Center has said the devastation caused by storm surges may be greater than anything residents there have ever seen before. The storm will make landfall Wednesday as a major category 3 hurricane.
