Walker Warns of Blue Wave as Trump Hits 51% Despite Fighting GOPís Battles Alone
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | April 4, 2018 | Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: By the way, the Rasmussen presidential tracking poll for today: Trump at 51% approval. The rest of the Drive-Bys discount Rasmussen. They call it a Republican-slanted poll unit. They discount it. They prefer to use CNN’s where Trump is at 43 or 44. He’s climbing, even, in the CNN poll, but he’s not at 50%. You have Trump, and you wonder: In any poll, how could Trump be at 51%? He’s fighting an unaccountable special counsel. He’s fighting current and former deep staters, a dominant radical left-wing media.

He’s fighting the ChiComs’ illegal trade practices, dealing with an insane regime from North Korea, fighting to undo a deranged Iran deal. He’s fighting organized invaders coming through Mexico to corrupt the American culture. He’s fighting wannabe gun confiscators and he’s fighting Democrat obstructionists in Congress who will not move forward on confirming many of his nominees, including judges at a rate that is slower than anybody can ever remember. It’s an active shutdown of confirming Trump appointees.

Now, what are Republicans famous for? Among this many things, what are Republicans famous for? (interruption) No, not “besides caving.” Republicans are famous for not fighting, right? And, I mean, I may be overdoing the term here. Republicans are famous for what a lot of people consider to be surrender. You know, on these ongoing continuing resolution budget deals. Well, they cave and they say, “We’ll get ’em next time! We’ll kick this can down the road. We’ll do this three months from now and we’re not doing this again. We’re gonna take it to ’em.”

And yet the procedure repeats. How do Republican voters respond? They respond with apathy and anger. If you want to know why Trump is at 51% approval, it’s because Trump is Trump. It is because Trump is taking on every enemy he’s got. In many ways, in many cases, he’s doing it single-handedly. He’s doing that which Republican voters have not only longed for, but believed is required in the midst of these political battles. Scott Walker has issued a warning.

There was an election in Wisconsin where a radical leftist won a judgeship. And Scott Walker says he believes that a Democrat blue wave is coming, governor of Wisconsin. He thinks there’s no question a blue wave is coming unless the Republicans get in gear and take this seriously. He said all the Democrats have is anger and rage, and the Republicans better come up with something to counter that or they’re gonna get swept. Now, he says this because he’s seeing it in his state and it’s a state Trump did well in. So something to pay attention to.

Solution: Conservatives should find DINOS to run in ‘Rat primaries. We met plenty of ‘Rats at the Trump rally we attended before the election. The ‘Rats we spoke to would love to have a conservative to vote for. They didn’t care about the letter after the name.

The leadership in the GOP better learn what is happening in this country. If not, they will do so at their own risk. I say it is time to get real leaders in charge of the Party.

The problem as always is complacency, slacking off the necessity for everyone to vote. If every Trump voter in WI had turned out to vote for the conservative candidate in this judicial election, they would have installed a good conservative judge. But they didn't bother, figured the hard part was over, let Trump do the heavy lifting now.

If there is a blue wave this Fall, this will be the reason: Trump can do all the right things and achieve great miracles, but if every available patriot does not vote, the enemy will win anyway, and undo all the good of the last year.

It wasn’t Republicans or Conservatives that got Donald Trump elected President.

“How do Republican voters respond? They respond with apathy and anger.”

Yesterday in Wisconsin was the PERFECT example of that. Judge Screnock was a lousy candidate, and the Socialists in Madistan and Milwaukeestan were out in full force (and didn’t have 10” of SNOW to contend with either).

No excuses. I think Governor Walker is correct and the WI GOP needs to get its act together like, YESTERDAY. The leftists in Wisconsin ARE going to be out in full force and we could lose a lot of the ground we’ve gained.

The left has HANDED us SO MUCH CAMPAIGN MATERIAL it isn’t even funny! Do we use their tactics against them? Nope.

I’ve been in this game long enough to watch History repeat itself a time or two, state-wide and nationally. We win, we Govern, we get some things done, we get the books balanced and put people back to work. Then, we get COMPLACENT while those on the Left NEVER lose the fire in their belly to destroy America.

It’s pretty simple, really.

Walker's right! If you want to see "winning," find out when and where to vote in your district. And vote this year!

Defeat the Democrats in Congress this year! Vote!

Losing some elections doesn't mean a Blue Wave is coming.

We have won quite a few of them as well.

We have the advantage in the Senate campaigns and should win some Senate seats.

I rematched election night yesterday, stumbled over the site and was surprised at the consensus right up to Florida win that Trump was going down. Their polls showed a Hillary win, their pundits said Hillary win, their exit polls showed a big Hillary win.

What changed were the patriots, those chanting “USA” at the rallies, standing in line for hours, crawling over cut glass to vote.

The only way we get a blue wave is if patriots mistakenly think we’ve already won or if they’re so pissed at GOP they stay home.

The Republican insiders selected the person to run for the the Supreme Court - no primary and every one was told to back off.

In addition the Republican Madison based group in charge of the campaign - Champion - ran a lousy campaign and lost the election for the judge. They are running part of Leah Vukmir’s campaign for US Senate.

For example they allowed the liberal Milwaukee candidate to claim in ads that Michael Stroeck was the liberal soft on crime judge. They never mentioned that the liberal candidate was from Milwaukee.

Yes, it is. Recall the “conservative” establishment in your state hysterically fought Trump harder than they ever fight a Democrat.

So it shouldn’t be a surprise to now see rampaging Democrats winning a no contest fight against such weak opposition.

The problem is the GOP refuses to act like conservatives.

A heck of a lot of this country is in the middle and/or loathes both parties, even if this gets hard core, true believing ideologues of both left and right in a lather.

Trump didn’t win so much as Hillary lost.

Leah would be superb. This is downright terrifying.

People forget that six out of seven House races in the last year....the “special elections”.... were won by Republicans.

The only one that went democrat was the seat in Pennsylvania which was barely won by democrat Connor Lamb, who won praising tariffs, the Second Amendment and Donald Trump.

I would not stand on a ledge just yet.....November is seven months away and the President is going to campaign his butt off in the months to come. I have no use for the GOPe, but I have faith in the President to be able to pull off a victory.
