Skip to comments.The Democrat/Media Narrative From Tuesday’s Elections Jumps The Gun On Reality
Posted on 11/10/2017 5:00:48 AM PST by EyesOfTX
But the big focus by the fake news media has been on Virginia, where establishment Republican Ed Gillespie lost to Democrat Ralph Northam by almost 9% of the vote, a whole 3% more than the margin the Coughing Crook ran up over Mr. Trump in 2016. It is that 3% difference that the Democrat/Fake media axis have seized upon as clear proof that voters all over the country have turned on President Trump and that the Democrats will once again become the ruling party in Washington after the 2018 elections.
This analysis, such as it is, ignores several things: First, Gillespie ran away from President Trump in his campaign, choosing instead to run as a sort of Jeb! Bush mushy RINO. That obviously did not play well with the states Republican base, and likely dampened voter turnout for the GOP on a rainy election day that would have normally played to the Republicans advantage.
Second, Jill Vogel, the GOP candidate for Lieutenant Governor who ran her campaign based on Trumps issues of law enforcement and secure borders, lost by exactly the 6 point margin that the President lost by a year ago.
Third, the Democrats remain in complete disarray, their National Committee cannot raise money, and the faces of their national party remain the thoroughly toxic Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
Fourth, while the playing field of Virginia, New Jersey and Maine this past Tuesday was heavily stacked in the Democrats favor, that will not be the case in 2018. Twelve months from now, the Democrats will be defending 25 of 34 Senate seats up for re-election, including 10 in states where the President won by double-digit margins in 2016, and the number of truly vulnerable GOP house seats remains at a very low level.

Thanks for posting an excerpt as doing so give me the opportunity to decide if I want to read the rest by clicking through to your blog.
We have to accept the media is the same as hearing a statement directly from the DNC.
They aren’t gong to deviate from that.
What stopped you from posting the whole thing?
Looking to score a few hits on your blog?
Whats the problem if he did? As long as it opens in a separate window.
Maybe using Free Republic as a free advertising tool and his own personal hit farm.
Sorry, it doesnt bother me, if the link is clearly labeled and it is my choice to click or not.
Pre....post election....nothing has changed...nothing!
I was saying this six months ago. It didn't matter who the republican candidate was in NJ, there was ZERO chance they would win in this state, and that was likely to be the case even IF Christie wasn't such a boorish moron. As someone else pointed out, the pattern in NJ for the past 30 years or more has been, one-term democrat who ends up being so corrupt or so awful that even democrats won't vote for them for a second term, followed by a two-term republican, then back to a one-term democrat...
Agreed. Excellent article. Worth the click.
Sure would like to know how many felons voted since McCauliffe restored that power to them.
I would make the Jumps the Shark. By Sunday it will not even be mentioned as they desperately try to smear Roy Moore.
