  • Obama quietly records dozens of get-out-the-vote pitches

    Former President Barack Obama has recorded dozens of last-minute messages for Democratic candidates across the country, in a below-the-radar push to get voters to the polls ahead of next week’s midterm elections. Obama has recorded more than 50 messages — some robo-calls, some videos that campaigns can spread through Facebook or text messages. A few have already been sent to voters, and others are likely to be sent in the final days before Tuesday’s election. “In the months leading up to the midterms — when he could have an impact — he has been making an aggressive case for Democratic...
  • In key California House races, Republicans are turning out early and big

    With the midterm elections just days away, there’s little indication that California is seeing a “blue wave” of Democratic votes, at least in the early returns of vote-by-mail ballots — and in some key races that will help determine control of the House, Republican voter response has been strong. There are still a lot more ballots to come in, cautioned Paul Mitchell, vice president of Political Data Inc., which supplies voter information to a variety of political campaigns. But so far, according to a mail ballot tracker he runs, Republican votes are keeping pace with the number of Democratic ballots....

    Most of us understood, I think, that the Democrats’ attempt to bring down Brett Kavanaugh with a pathetically thin allegation of sexual misconduct as a teenager would energize the Republican base just in time for the 2018 elections. But apparently the “Kavanaugh effect” extends further than that. A new poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal finds that likely voters in the most hotly contested House races favor Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a significant margin. To be specific, in districts rated as “toss up” or “leans” by the Cook Political Report, voters favor Kavanaugh’s confirmation 43 percent to 33 percent. How does...

    Did you move since the last election? Did you turn 18 recently? Do you have right-leaning family or friends who moved or turned 18? Guess what? Time is running out to register to vote. In most states if you don't register, you don't get to vote. SO RIGHT NOW google "*Your state* voter registration", print the form, fill it out, stick a stamp on it and put it in the mail box TODAY! Print more forms, give them to your sane (right-leaning) friends, relatives, get them to fill them out, put in the mail box.

    MOUNT LAUREL, New Jersey–The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), a leading Republican super PAC, continues to lead the charge to deploy the Republican grassroots to defy history and hold the House Republican majority, as seen by their efforts in New Jersey’s third congressional district and documented by Breitbart News. The Congressional Leadership Fund, the super PAC endorsed by the House Republican leadership, announced on Saturday that they held their fourth “Super Saturday” to reach a record number of Republican voters across the nation. CLF is using its 40 field offices to engage with over 500,000 targeted voters in key congressional districts...

    Michelle Obama encouraged people who “know nothing about nothing” to get out and vote while speaking at a campaign-style rally on Monday in Las Vegas. “Voting does not require any kind of special expertise,” Obama told the crowd. “You know, you don’t need to have some fancy degree to be qualified to vote. You don’t have to read every news article to be qualified to vote.” “You know what you need to be qualified to vote?” Obama asked. “You need to be a citizen … you need to have opinions about the issues in your community — that’s what qualifies...

    A progressive group on Monday launched a $3 million voter registration campaign in the 36 states that allow online registration, with a focus on Arizona, Florida and Georgia, CNN reported. The group, Acronym, debuted its "Knock the Vote" campaign with a logo depicting President Trump's head being punched, according CNN. "It's going to be the thing that pays dividends for election cycles to come, if we can get more voters on the rolls," said Tara McGowan, an Obama re-election campaign staffer leading the new push. The campaign targets platforms like Snapchat, Facebook and YouTube, and includes short videos and images...

    Barack and Michelle Obama are jumping back in the fray to whip up Democrats — with the former president previewing his stump speech Friday at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Obama will roll out his mid-term message when he receives the Institute of Government and Public Affairs Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government at UIUC at 11 a.m. A point this ethics award makes as Trump’s administration grapples with an avalanche of scandals and Robert Mueller’s Russia probe: Obama’s two terms were relatively scandal free.
  • Trump Plans 40 Days on Campaign Trail for Midterms

    Bloomberg Quint ^ | August 21, 2018
    Donald Trump is disregarding concerns he may be a liability to Republican candidates this fall and will travel the country to campaign on their behalf -- a decision likely to ensure the 2018 elections are a referendum on his presidency. Trump intends to spend more than 40 days on the campaign trail between the beginning of August and the November midterm elections, according to a White House official who discussed the plans on the condition of anonymity. That would outpace both Barack Obama and George W. Bush’s efforts in off-year elections during their presidencies. The president will hold eight rallies...
  • Ohio Special Election: Democrat Turnout 87% of 2016 Total — GOP Turnout Only 40% of 2016 Total

    On Tuesday Troy Balderson defeated Democrat Danny O’Connor by less than 1% of the vote. Balderson had 100,052 votes compared to Tiberi’s 251,266 votes in 2016 or 40% of the 2016 turnout. Danny O’Connor had 98,364 votes on Tuesday compared to 112,638 votes received by Democrat Ed Albertson in 2016 or 87% of the 2016 Turnout. This should concern Republican party leaders. The GOP to do a better job or Trump is going to face a Democrat Congress ready to impeach him in 2019.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned supporters in a fundraising email Monday about Democrats’ turnout for the March primary, which he says should “shock every conservative to their core.” So far, more Democrats have voted early than Republicans, Dallas News reports. Through Sunday in the 15 Texas counties with the most registered voters, 135,070 people had voted in the Republican primary and 151,236 in the Democratic. Compared to the first six days of early voting in 2014, Democratic turnout increased 69 percent, while Republicans saw a 20 percent increase. The Democrats even surpassed their early voting totals from the 2016 primary...

    Congratulations to Democrats on a very successful turnout effort, I guess. As hard as this is to believe given how highly touted the Clinton GOTV effort was, it makes some sense once you realize where the fatal error probably lay. Democrats assumed that white women and working-class whites who had voted for Obama would stick with Clinton this time for the most part, especially in the Rust Belt. Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were part of the blue firewall, weren’t they? Well, there you go. No need to even visit Wisconsin. Their loyalty was taken for granted. So when the time...

  • Trumps GOTV in PA seems better than all others in 30 years

    I have been a registered Reupublican in PA since turning 18. And while election cycles always mean calls from the party, I have never been contacted as often as I have been over the last week. Averaging 2 calls a day from obvious phone bank workers and recorded messages from surrogates. This is far more frequent and on the ball than any election I have been alive for. I don't know if I am just an outlier, but if Trumps overall operation is firing at this level nationally, I am really dubious of the alleged ground game advantage that the...

    Hi all, I've recently learned that you can make get-out- the-vote calls for Trump through his website, It's called Trump Talk at the bottom of the main page. It's amazingly easy if you have a phone and a computer. Basically you fill out your name, phone number and email address. Following registration, once you sign in you can start calling. You are given a script and asked to be polite, referring any questions people might have to the Trump website or their phone number. What I especially like about it is when you do it is done through your...
