Pennsylvania small business owners have a drastically different take on Trump than they did 4 years ago
For months now, independent and undecided voters have been a strong focal point for the upcoming election but President Donald Trump is missing one key group of voters that could greatly contribute to his downfall on Election Day.
It is no secret that Trump is not the typical Republican but his political approach may have a lasting impact on the party and voters’ view of the Republican Party principles, namely Millennials and Generation Z voters, who are just years away from becoming the voting majority.
With Trump in office, the Republican Party has aimed to push Conservatism to the forefront of America in a manner. However, Millennial and Gen Z voters are considered to be the most diverse voters in American history which may not lead to a favorable outcome for the Republican Party.
Ben Wessel, executive director of NextGen America, an organization that works to mobilize younger voters for the Democratic Party, spoke with The Atlantic about the full scope of the voting trajectory.
“There’s a consistent picture coming together that says we’re going to have the highest youth turnout since 2008, and maybe since 1992,” Wessel said, adding, “And they are rebuking Trump and the Republicans in a way we haven’t seen since the 2008 presidential” race.
Long-term trends may prove to be more baleful toward the Republican Party. The publication reports that the latest movement may be just as vast as the rise of the Baby Boomer voters in the 1980s.
The electorate is beginning its most profound generational transition since the early 1980s, when Baby Boomers became the largest voting bloc, dislodging the Greatest Generation of Americans, who came of age during the Depression and World War II.
Although Trump typically goes with his gut by taking an aggressive approach toward politics despite his advisors and constituents urging him to tone down his rhetoric, his tactics may backfire against him and usher in a more progressive movement.
Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department banned from the building: report
The Associated Press reported Thursday that President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department was barred from entering the building.
The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.
Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."
Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money
In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.
When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.
"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
‘I’m utterly embarrassed’: Michigan Republican admits Rudy Giuliani ‘waded into the realm of insanity’
Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.
Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
