Conservative offers the perfect explanation for why Trump is ‘tanking’ in devastating new Fox News poll

Published

on

During an MSNBC panel, discussion on a new Fox News poll showing Donald Trump is lagging far behind a handful of the Democratic presidential front-runners, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin suggested the president take a hard look at his declining numbers because the devil is in the details.

Earlier on MSNBC, fellow Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson looked at the same numbers and flatly stated, “This looks like a campaign going down the tubes right now.”

Rubin concurred and claimed that the White House is currently on edge and has no idea how to stop the slide.

“I think they’re quite worried, at least the people who know what’s going on but they dare not to do anything about it, they say, because they’re afraid these plans would leak,” she explained. “So they’re doing absolutely nothing, which gives you a sense of the circular convoluted thinking that goes on.”

After saying the biggest threat to Trump’s re-election chances is the struggling economy and threat of recession, Rubin advised viewers to take a hard look at the Fox News poll.

“I encourage all your, viewers whenever you look at these polls,” Rubin suggested. “Look at the votes of white women, suburban women, college-educated women — Trump is tanking with all of those groups.”

“And though it’s not a totality of the reasons, one of the reasons is what we just saw, women hate this meanness, this bullying, this super macho routine and he is personally offending and turn off American women,” she elaborated. “It’s not the white male, non-college-educated voter Democrats have to scoop up, it’s all of these women primarily in the suburbs just like they did in 2018 when they swept to a majority in the House.”

The DOJ is suing Omarosa over the same law Brett Kavanaugh is accused of violating: Ex-White House ethics chief

Published

on

On Monday, former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub noted a massive double standard at the Justice Department, pointing out that government attorneys are suing Omarosa Manigault Newman for financial disclosure violations — while giving a free pass to Brett Kavanaugh, who is accused of even more serious financial disclosure violations.

In fact, noted Shaub, not only is the DOJ not pursuing that allegation, Attorney General Bill Barr is giving the DOJ employees who helped fast-track Kavanaugh through Supreme Court confirmation hearings a prestigious award, usually reserved for prosecutors who take down terrorists and mob bosses:

Trump’s longshot bid to win New Mexico has political leaders baffled: ‘He’s a batsh*t racist’

Published

on

Despite losing New Mexico by eight points in the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump and his campaign manager Brad Pascale are making big plans to win the state in 2020 -- and that has political observers baffled.

With Trump appearing in New Mexico on Monday night, Politico reports the president has his work cut out for him in a state that saw the GOP lose the governorship and one House seat in 2018.

"The Land of Enchantment has voted for a Republican presidential candidate only once since 1992. With a considerable nonwhite voter population and all-Democratic congressional delegation, it’s not exactly fertile ground for a surprise GOP victory," the report notes before adding that Parscale feels they can make inroads this go-around.

Published

on

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.

The attack by Tehran-backed Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is bogged down in a five-year war, effectively shut down six percent of the global oil supply.
