GOP pollster warns women will doom his party in 2018: ‘Largest gender gap in history’ is coming

Published

on

Republican pollster Frank Luntz is warning that the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation battle is likely to further drive women voters into the arms of Democrats — and that could spell doom for his party’s chances of holding the House of Representatives.

In particular, Luntz tells Bloomberg News that the 2018 midterm elections are “going to be the largest gender gap in modern American history” when it comes to women’s support for one political party.

Liam Donovan, a lobbyist who once worked as a Republican Senate operative, similarly tells Bloomberg that many suburban women are recoiling from the Republican Party at the worst possible time just prior to midterm elections.

“The problem for the GOP is twofold: one, the advantage cuts disproportionately in favor of Dems, and two, the drop-off is particularly acute among educated women in the metro suburbs where their members are most vulnerable,” he explains.

Bloomberg cites recent polling data from Pew showing that 58 percent of registered women voters polled in late September would vote for a generic Democratic candidate for Congress, while just 35 percent would prefer a Republican candidate.

GOP strategist John Brabender, however, said he was skeptical that the GOP’s standing among women could get much worse than it already has — but he thinks that still will likely destroy its House majority in the midterm elections.

“There is sort of a female revolution going on at the voting booth,” he said. “Donald Trump has very much energized moderate-to-left-leaning women who were not as politically active as they are today.”

President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

on

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
