Mitt 2020? Romney beats Trump 55 percent - 37 percent in ‘hypothetical primary’

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/28/2019 1:27:14 PM

In one of the first 2020 polls pitting President Trump against critic Mitt Romney, the new Utah senator crushes the 45th president. It helps that the poll was of Utah Republicans. The “hypothetical primary matchup” from OHPI had Trump losing to Romney 55 percent to 37 percent in Utah. “Republican base voters around the country back President Trump,” said Mike Noble, chief of research of Phoenix-based research company OH Predictive Insights. “But Beehive State voters buck that trend, giving the state’s junior senator a wide margin of victory in a matchup,” he added.

Comments:

They ONLY pulled Utah residents, tainting this result from the get-go. Mittens didnt want to win, he wanted to run. BIG difference between the two!!

Of course we should run a loser for President, even though we have a proven winner already in the White House.

There was a time when it would have been completely understandable to believe that Romney was the better (than Obama) man and/or that Donald Trump may not be a reliable conservative. To not recognize the clear differences between them now, one must be willfully blind or stupid.

Well for the first time in over 10 years I didn´t have to write a check to the fed and state income tax dudes. I was so shocked I filled the forms out 3 times. Thanks PT. Personally, I like Mormons. They hold down the price of coffee and pork. But PT was born to be our CEO. He´s good at it.

What's Mitt Romney's problem? 22 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 5/21/2019 2:43:23 PM
After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Few things offend Bernie Sanders as much as people escaping from command-and-control government systems, even minority students whose parents are desperate to get their kids a decent education. The socialist wants to turn George Wallace on his head and not block black children from attending traditional public schools but block them from exiting them for something better. The New York Times the other day wrote a long, devastating report on the then-Burlington, Vt., mayor’s love affair with the Sandinistas in the 1980s. So many decades later, his reflex is the same: If the Sandinistas wouldn’t favor it, he’s not inclined to like it much, either.

James Mills, 43, said his planned round of chemotherapy on Monday would not happen after a hooded suspect swiped the potentially life-saving delivery from his porch on Saturday. “I checked the door and didn’t see the package,” Mills told KFOR. “I double checked and they said it had been delivered. I check the security cameras, and I saw the UPS driver deliver it, then about eight minutes later another individual comes up, grabs it and takes off.”
Trump’s subpoena appeal headed to

Spurned Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland — whose chance at a spot on the high court was derailed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — may have a key say on whether President Trump’s financial records are released to the House. Trump’s lawyers on Tuesday appealed a lower court’s decision ordering that the records be released to the House Oversight Committee to the Washington, DC, Circuit Court of Appeals — which Garland heads as chief judge. President Barack Obama nominated Garland to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016 after Scalia’s death. But McConnell refused to even schedule a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider Garland’s nomination,

The FBI found the camp near Tuskegee, Alabama, and reportedly described it as containing a “makeshift military-style obstacle course.” Details are few. Researchers at WPMI-TV, an NBC affiliate in Mobile, Alabama, uncovered the existence of the second facility after combing through legal documents and reported on it April 29 but the national media only picked up the story in recent days. The April 29 report states: NBC 15 News uncovered a

Gillibrand was reacting to news that broke late Tuesday that the Alabama State Senate had passed a measure virtually outlawing all abortions within state lines— including in instances of rape or incest.
John Paul Stevens: Heller gun control decision the worst in 35-year Supreme Court tenure 22 replies

Retired Justice John Paul Stevens is lambasting the Supreme Court´s 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision broadening gun rights, calling it the “most clearly incorrect” ruling of his 35-year career on the high court. “Heller is unquestionably the most clearly incorrect decision that the court announced during my tenure on the bench,” Stevens, 99, wrote in his new memoir, The Making of a Justice. The retired justice penned the main dissent in the Heller case, which established the right to keep guns for self-defense in the home. Joining Stevens’ dissent were Justices David Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

It’s not all kumbaya and kombucha at the Park Slope Food Coop — where life under its socialist-tinged grocery store is apparently so oppressive that the paid workers are trying to unionize. Employees of the Brooklyn food collective recently alleged unfair labor practices by the co-op in a filing with the US National Labor Relations Board. In response, the crunchy-granola collective’s iron-fisted management threatened and punished those who support the effort — with one union-busting boss telling workers they “should have a backup plan” if their collective bargaining doesn’t bear fruit, according to a copy of the labor complaint

And he slammed the “bevy of Hollywood liberals” who’ve promised to boycott Georgia as the state passes strict pro-life legislation.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said.

San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat.

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights.
