On Thursday, The New York Times reported in an analysis of President Donald Trump’s “terrible” month that the GOP’s internal polling shows him heading for electoral wipeout, with even safely red states in doubt.

“In addition to public surveys showing him losing decisively to Joseph R. Biden Jr. in a number of battleground states, private Republican polls in recent weeks show the president struggling even in conservative states, leading Mr. Biden by less than five points in Montana and trailing him in Georgia and even Kansas, according to G.O.P. officials who have seen the data,” said the report.

Additionally, said the report, “One Republican official who is in frequent contact with the campaign expressed incredulity at how some aides willfully distort the electoral landscape to mollify Mr. Trump, recalling one conversation in which they assured him he was faring well in Maine, a state where private polling shows he’s losing.”

Kansas has not voted for a Democrat for president since 1964.

Additionally, even a narrow win in the state for Trump would put the GOP in danger in the Senate race, where Democratic candidate Dr. Barbara Bollier has been shown as competitive in public polls, and where the GOP is trying to prevent the nomination of controversial former Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Romney shredded for letting Trump have another justice after he voted to remove Trump from office just months ago

Published

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced that he will vote to support President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee despite Americans already casting ballots to replace him. It's something that many found remarkable because Romney just voted earlier this year to remove Trump from office, but he now he believes it is appropriate for another judge to be fast-tracked through the senate.

While Romney does have a history of loving conservative judges, he doesn't have a good history with Trump as he's been one of few Republicans to hold Trump accountable for moral and ethical failings. However, like Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Romney has refused to do anything about his "concerns."

Manhattan prosecutors file brief suggesting Trump is facing a ‘criminal tax fraud’ investigation

Published

on

Whatever happens on Election Day 2020 — whether President Donald Trump wins a second term or Vice President Joe Biden is elected president — Trump will no doubt continue to be the subject of multiple investigations. Some of those investigations are likely to come from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who has been aggressively probing Trump’s financial history. And in an appellate brief filed on Monday, September 21, Vance stressed that his office should have access to Trump’s tax returns because reports from major publications indicate that a “criminal tax fraud” investigation is needed.

Lindsey Graham rails at Dems after flip-flop on court vacancy: ‘They would do this in a New York minute’

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) insisted on Tuesday that Republicans already have the votes needed to confirm President Donald Trump's eventual Supreme Court nominee.

During an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, Graham defended changing his 2016 pledge not to confirm a Supreme Court nomination in an election year.

According to Graham, the Democrats' treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh caused him to rethink his position.

"The whole game has changed," he explained. "If the shoe were on the other foot, [Democrats] would do this in a New York minute."

"It really pissed me off what they would do to Brett," Graham continued. "I've known him for 20 years."
