Anti-Trump Republican pollster Sarah Longwell says that a regular focus group she’s been holding with undecided women voters took a major turn this week after President Donald Trump refused to commit to having a peaceful transition of power.

During an appearance on The Bulwark’s “Secret Podcast,” Longwell explained that she thought that her focus group would spend a lot of time discussing the Supreme Court vacancy sparked by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, but instead immediately began talking about Trump’s comments on the peaceful transition of power.

“Multiple people immediately jump in to say that they’re leaning more towards Joe Biden,” Longwell said. “Then it was revealed that the big thing impacting their thinking had nothing to do with the courts — it was Donald Trump’s refusal to state that he would accommodate a peaceful transition of power.”

She went on to say that, while her focus group voters didn’t believe this represented a catastrophic threat to democracy, she nonetheless said they were shocked by his statements.

“He has pushed pretty much half of the undecideds… into Biden leaners,” she said.

She said that at the end of her previous session, very few people would say that they felt committed to supporting either candidate, but this time “more than half the group” said they’d back Biden if the election were held tomorrow.

Published

Democratic Senate hopeful Jon Ossoff destroyed his Republican incumbent opponent so thoroughly Wednesday evening that Georgia Senator David Perdue has just canceled the third and final debate.

“It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator, it’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent,” Ossoff told Perdue, who had little to say in response. The viral video had been watched 5 million times by Thursday morning. It's now been viewed 9.3 million times, nearly as many times as the number of people in the entire state of Georgia.

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.
