Even Trump-backing Republicans are bracing for a massive loss — and it’s only August

Published

Normally, you don’t start to see elected officials admitting that their presidential candidate is toast until late September or early October.

This year, it’s happening in August.

The Hill has done some interviews with several Congressional Republicans who all say that Hillary Clinton is very likely to win the presidential election in November.

“I think it will be Hillary,” admitted one House GOP lawmaker who has endorsed Trump.

“If he continues the next 90 days like the last week, then he will lose big time,” said another Trump-backing GOP lawmaker.

Of course, if even Trump’s supporters are admitting that Trump looks doomed, you can only imagine how the Republicans who are still opposed to his candidacy are feeling.

“This is like a football game where you hate both teams,” one anti-Trump Republican told The Hill. “You root for a tie — and maybe some minor injuries.”

That said, some anti-Trump Republicans are hoping that a Trump loss will actually force the party to reexamine itself and implement needed reforms.

“Another autopsy will occur and the next time I hope lessons will be learned,” Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) told The Hill.

GOP’s best defense of Trump’s ‘corrupt schemes’ may doom him in 2020 election: conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative columnist Eli Lake thinks that House Republicans may have done a good job of defending President Donald Trump during Wednesday's opening impeachment hearings -- but he also thinks they undermined his chances of winning the 2020 election.

In his latest Bloomberg column, Lake argues that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a smart argument in favor of not impeaching the president: Namely, that his attempt to extort Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden fell apart before it could be fully executed.

Trump flying in for last-ditch rally to save Louisiana GOP governor candidate with ‘really bad’ vote returns

Published

on

Republicans suffered a major blow in Kentucky after Gov. Matt Bevin, a firm ally of President Donald Trump, was defeated by Democratic state Attorney General Andy Beshear — despite the president's efforts to help the GOP, culminating in a massive rally in Lexington on the eve of the election.

Now, according to Politico, GOP strategists are worried that a similar outcome could happen in Louisiana, where conservative Democrat John Bel Edwards will stand for re-election on Saturday against Trump-loving businessman Eddie Rispone.
