Our Failed Political Press: ‘Be Afraid, Dems!’

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie):

President Donald Trump doesn’t have much of a primary fight on his hands — but Republican voters are nevertheless turning out in droves for him, a warning sign for Democrats in November.

Are you scared yet?

The efforts are paying off, with Republicans turning out in historic numbers. Trump received more than 31,000 votes in the Iowa caucus, surpassing the 25,000 Democrats who turned out during Barack Obama’s successful 2012 reelection bid. Trump’s share was more than four times the number of Republicans who caucused during George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign.

How about now?

The vote totals in New Hampshire were even starker. The president received 129,696 votes, more than doubling Obama and Bush’s totals.

Have you checked under the bed?

“There is a personal vote for Donald Trump that is unshakeable,” said John Couvillon, a Louisiana-based pollster who has been tracking the primary totals. “Republican voters are willing to go out” to vote for Trump even though he doesn’t have a formidable primary challenge.

Of course the cultists are coming out in droves to support their fat golden calf. It’s what they do.

They travel for hours to wait in line —some overnight!— for one of his trademarked Reichstag Fire Rallys, but despite of all that fervor, no one knows how many of them that there really are.

We’ve all seen the news clips and interviews of these Red Hats bragging about how many of these rallies that they attended. (“Collect the whole set, kids!”) The Narcissist Borealis is always lying about the attendance and the crowds waiting outside that somehow cannot get into the half-empty venues. It’s all carnival barking.

So before you start accepting all the doom and gloom that hordes of unwashed Gomers and Hucka-wanna-bes come swarming outta Possum Hollar to install Lord Dampnut onto the throne again, consider this: those numbers might be his ceiling and not his basement.

Enthusiasm on the Left is currently distributed between seven or so candidates and has not consolidated around a winner. This is Politico doing what Politico does; I’m kinda surprised Chris Cillizza hasn’t run this same “analysis.”

    Oranus dotardus is probly crafting ultra-evil plans as we speak, and wondering if perhaps, after all, modern medicine cannot prolong his life enough to endure serious campaigning and the rigors of another 4 years of playing golf, dissing the world through Twitter, and the World’s leaders he doesn’t care for, while destroying everything Obama had to build to stave off a world-wide Depression, and de-regulating restraints on businesses to the point where they actually make MORE money by polluting than not. Of course, it’s almost ALWAYS been that way – if these high-falutin, major-pollutin companies aren’t constrained by regulations, they seem to go out of their way to be even “dirtier.” And in MY America, that shit don’t work.

    It’s pretty clear they’ll do anything to fuck over the rest of us, even sell out the country.

    Maybe it’s time to fuck back. Throw a MO key wrench in it. Any little thing to disrupt …
