Martha McSally is in big trouble after impeachment votes: report

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost when she ran in 2018, but was given a participation prize by the Republican governor who had to appoint someone to cover Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) seat until it came up for reelection in 2020. Recent polling shows that McSally is in serious trouble.

Highground Public Affairs Consultants published their latest poll showing McSally has fallen significantly after the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Going into the impeachment, McSally was polling at 42 percent at PPP polls, RealClearPolitics reported. However, the new data today shows McSally struggling to break 40. Instead, she’s hovering around 39 percent, while her opponent, Mark Kelly is at 46 percent.

McSally voted against witnesses and documents being admitted into the impeachment trial, she attacked a CNN reporter for asking if she was going to vote to support witnesses or new evidence. Instead of answering the question, she called the reporter a “liberal hack.” But it was a question her constituents wanted answers.

Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) is also one of the least popular senators in the United States. A Civiqs poll showed a one percent increase in support for impeachment to 50 percent in her home state, which she also voted against.

“Right now, not only does Mark Kelly have a commanding fundraising advantage, but he’s also holding a lead among critical swing voters including independent and unaffiliated voters as well as female voters who were the key to Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s success in 2018,” said Paul Bentz, Sr. Vice President of Research and Strategy at HighGround, Inc., “Polling is a snapshot in time and only time will tell if McSally’s new ads or the President’s visit can help stem the tide, but for now, Kelly’s campaign is trending in the right direction.”

Published

on

A judge has ruled that unaired footage from the reality TV show Celebrity Apprentice should be handed over to a group of entrepreneurs who say they were scammed by Donald Trump and his children who repeatedly endorsed a questionable multilevel marketing company on the show, according to a report from Bloomberg.

"Trump and his three oldest children were sued in 2018 for their roles in promoting ACN from 2005 to 2015 with Trump suggesting people could invest in the company’s desktop video phone with little or no risk," writes Bloomberg's Erik Larson. "The service was quickly eclipsed with the advent of smartphones and the plaintiffs claim they lost hundreds of thousands of dollars by putting their faith in the Trumps."

Published

on

ABC News' White House reporter Jonathan Karl appeared on MSNBC Thursday to reveal some of the tales from his new book about reporting on the Trump administration. Amid the conversation, however, he noted that Trump is desperate to get out and get back to his campaign rallies.

"He is going a little bit stir-crazy because he cannot leave the White House," Karl explained. "This is a guy who, even before he was sworn in, after the election but before he was sworn in, was already out there doing a political rally. He feeds -- he needs that energy, he needs the spotlight, he needs to go out and do this. So, this is an outlet that has replaced the rally."
