Exit poll results look very bad for Trump

Published

on

Initial exit poll results are in and they are looking very bad for President Trump and his party. CNN’s are here, MSNBC’s are here.

First, two-thirds of voters say the election is about Donald Trump. Some, like Donald Trump, might be happy about that, but the exit polls also place Trump’s approval rating at just 44%, and disapproval at 55%. Worse for Team Trump, 47% are expressing strong disapproval.

MSNBC on-air notes that 16 percent of voters are first time voters, and 61% of them are voting for Democrats.

What’s important to voters? Ranked:

  1. Health care.
  2. Immigration.
  3. Economy.
  4. Guns.

“Nearly half of voters felt their financial situation is the same as it was two years ago. Just over a third said it was better, while a little less than 15% said it was worse,” CNN reports.

45% of voters say the Trump tax cuts did not affect them.

More bad news for Trump: Extremist violence, which many blame him for, is an important consideration:

There’s been pent-up frustration over Trump, which likely explains the historic midterm voting participation nationwide.

“I’ve been looking forward to this day for two years,” Ben Zylman, a 61-year-old from Kalamazoo, Michigan, told NBC News. An independent, he’s voted for GOP candidates before. “I do believe it’s a referendum on Trump and the GOP in general, as they’ve fallen in lockstep with him.”

He voted for a Democrat to unseat his GOP Congressman.

Published

on

Republican pollster Frank Luntz drew hackles from across the internet on Tuesday after he blamed a broken elevator at a hotel in Austria on "socialism."

Writing on Twitter, Luntz complained that the elevator at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria has not been functioning for three straight days -- and said that the European social welfare state was responsible for this purportedly dire situation.

"Please don’t bring European-style socialism to America," Luntz pleaded.

I’m at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria. Almost 200 rooms… But the elevator has been broken for 3 days.

Columnists bid a brutal farewell to ‘sneering’ Sarah Sanders: Her awfulness was a thing to behold

Published

on

On Tuesday, New York Times columnists Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discussed the departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who they agreed was one of the worst press secretaries in modern times.

"She brought us back to the bad old days when women were supposed to be seen and not heard, but lately she wasn't seen all that much either," said Collins. "Who would want to go down in history as the press secretary who got rid of the press briefing?"

‘Nightcrawlers and toadyism’: Trump’s remaining staffers ridiculed for hanging on while others flee off-the-rails president

Published

on

In a caustic piece for the New York Daily News, columnist Richard Cohen mocked the few remaining staffers who have stood by Donald Trump's side since he became president saying they obviously lack anywhere else to go and have apparently have no self-respect.

Or as he put it: "Whatever happened to pride?"

"I ask because reports regularly surface about Donald Trump berating or insulting someone, often an aide, who just takes it," Cohen wrote. "A recent example comes from Michael Wolff’s new book 'Siege,' in which Paul Manafort, once Trump’s campaign chairman but now domiciled in stir, was vulgarly upbraided by the president: 'You’re terrible, you can’t defend me.' Trump allegedly called him a 'lazy f---' and asked 'Am I a f---ing baby?' in a train wreck of a verbal assault."
