‘She will lose my vote’: Maine voters tell MSNBC they’re ready to kick Susan Collins out of office

Published

on

MSNBC traveled to Maine this week to get a sense of how voters there feel about Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) — and it looks like the moderate Republican is making a lot of people unhappy.

In interviews, both supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump’s impeachment said they were upset with how Collins is sitting on the fence and wringing her hands about whether to call witnesses at the president’s Senate impeachment trial.

“She will lose my vote when she runs again,” pro-impeachment Maine voter Stevie Colburn tells MSNBC, although she also held out hope that Collins would agree to call witnesses and subpoena documents in the president’s trial.

Trump supporters who talked with MSNBC also said they were growing tired of the senator’s act.

“I’d like to see her be more on the team and support this guy,” Trump supporter Rob Hopkins said. “I think Susan tries to play both sides and appease everybody too much.”

“She’s following her typical course of wavering all the time,” GOP voter Sue Hopkins added. “As far as her playing both sides, I find that… I don’t like it. Let’s put it that way. And would I stand by her? No.”

According to a column from the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, Donald Trump cannot be happy with his polling numbers that are continuing to slide just months before the November election and that his re-election is now imperiled.

According to the conservative columnist who is one of the president's harshest critics, his daily "rally around the flag" press conferences don't seem to be working on a public seeking assurances that he is the person to lead the country through the COVID-19 pandemic as well as save a collapsing economy.

Wisconsin proves GOP’s ongoing war on voting is about ending democracy — and not just winning

Published

on

The Wisconsin Republican Party has been at the cutting edge of the efforts to make sure few, if any, Democratic voters ever make it to the polls again. Under the guidance of former Republican governor Scott Walker, a stalwart opponent of food having flavor, the state enacted a dizzying program of voter suppression, requiring people to have updated government-issued IDs while simultaneously making those IDs much harder to get, especially for people of color. They also suppressed the college student vote by banning most student IDs as a legitimate form of identification.
