Don’t Get Too Cocky Republicans; The Turnout
Numbers Say Democrats are Jazzed

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 2/12/2020 3:32:27 PM

As my colleague Nick Arama reported here, it was a great night for Trump. With 97% of the New Hampshire primary results in, the President is at 85.7%. In other words, he’s now in Reagan territory. And Tuesday’s Republican turnout, currently around 120,000, far exceeds that of any other incumbent president seeking reelection. Although this is certainly good news, Republicans shouldn’t get too cocky because the Democrats had a very good night as well. The most updated figures (97%) show that 283,440 Democratic votes had been cast. Based on that number, 100% would bring it to approximately 292,200, which is significantly higher than Democratic turnout in 2016

Comments:

If we get cocky or complacent, we will be watching a leftist president be sworn in next January. Run up the score in 2020!! MAGA!! KAG!!

We're more than jazzed Liz. And stop calling us Republicans. There are a lot more Independents waiting to vote Trump than ever. There are a lot more Democrats waiting to vote for Trump too. Polls, ha ha ha.

So that explains why a RECORD NUMBER of voters in the NH primary voted for the incumbent president who has essentially no opposition. Sure, OK......

Liz, we've just had Van Jones who thought Obama was a sell out to conservatives say that Trump has done more for racial minorities (and I hate to use that term because race has nothing to do with my attitude) than Democrats have done in the last half century. As #1 says "Stop calling us Republicans" we're AMERICANS. DONALD TRUMP IS THE FIRST POLITICIAN (not) WHO DOES NOT KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD . He fixes what is broken and Makes America Great Again.

I am not getting complacent, but I have heard the exact opposite. Many fewer Dems voting, many more Repubs voting, even when it isn't necessary.

Earlier today, I read that Mr. Trump is attracting more turnout in the primary season than any other incumbent presidential candidate in the last 40 years. That more people turned out for the Dem primary than the GOP primary in New Hampshire is not particularly surprising. The Dems are trying to sort out their nominee is going to be. The GOP already knows. All that said . . . broken glass, my friends! Broken glass! If we have to crawl over broken glass to cast our votes, we need to do it. Not just a NO to socialism, but rather a BLOODY HELL NO to socialism! That is the message we need to send those b*stards in the DNC.

We will know more when the primaries are over. Will the Dem nominee be able to corral all the various Dem voters plus the needed independents to carry th election in November? I would agree with the author - WE need to follow through. Speak our minds with people on the fence and actually remember to vote.

Even though President Trump is basically running unopposed, he had a giant number of people go out to vote for him, There was no reason for anyone to go to the Republican primary just to vote for him. But they did. That is the big lesson here. We are motivated!!!! Massively!!!!! Yes, in a Demon-Rat state, more Demon-Rats voted. But they have a hotly contested contest between sodomite socialists, regular socialists, and hard core Communists for their dictator-wanna-be candidate for November. If I were a betting woman, my money would be on Donald Trump in November!!!!!!

I've commented here before on what has happened in Virginia, where I lived for about 27 years (we moved out of Virginia, Loudoun County to be specific, three years ago, and I saw the change). I believe Virginia is a bellwether state. It was once solidly conservative. No more, and I do not believe that will change any time soon, if ever. As long as Northern Virginia is blue, Virginia will be blue. There is nasty, nasty stuff going on there politically (I read the local news), from the all-out assault on the Second Amendment, abortion, the LGBTQ agenda in the schools, it's just a full assault on the Constitution. One of the delegates has introduced a bill to give electoral votes to the popular vote winner in the national election. What the Democrats did in Virginia they are trying to do here in North Carolina, they are trying to turn Texas, and they won't stop there. Furthermore, the media is on their side, regardless of how ridiculous and ignorant they are. So while the Trump rallies have incredible turnouts and the base is standing with him, that is no guarantee of his winning in November. The Democrat Marxist Party is not to be underestimated. They are trying to steal the next Presidential election -- and state elections -- by any means possible, whether through voter fraud, legislatively by doing away with the Electoral College, and through violence. They are also siding with the Islamists, and there are many Muslims running for political office throughout the country. They will not give up. We've seen the chaos they have caused the last three years, even before Trump was elected, from the moment he announced his candidacy. We've already seen what they are capable of, and I don't believe it has yet peaked.

While I agree that these are the numbers and I agree that a lot of dems voted, I don't think anyone is getting overconfident. We should charge full speed ahead right up to the end. Not only to assure the win but to push for a landslide if possible. I want Nasty Pelousy buried so deep in the rubble of the dem party that we can't see her at all.

Stop with the “don’t get cocky or over-confident” nonsense. No Trump supporter is going to sit home this election. Furthermore, he’s steadily picking up more non-conservative voters, along the way. The only reason people who vote Republican stay home is if they don’t like the candidate (e.g. Dole, McCain, Romney, et al.) The base loves Trump, and those who don’t would not vote for him, no matter who his opponent is (e.g. Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, John Kasich, et al.) If you wan to issue dire warnings, let it be about probable, rampant dem vote fraud.

The reason the Democrats won so many seats in the House of Representatives in the mid-term election is because Trump wasn't on the ballot and Republicans stayed home and didn't bother to vote. As we have witnessed with the manufactured impeachment debacle, and the failed Russian hoax, elections have consequences. The Democrat Party has tilted so far left it makes you wonder just what type of person would support their anti-American, anti prosperity, anti military, anti first responders, higher taxess and open border agenda. Seems to me the most ardent supports of the socialist gaggle running for president on the Democrat side are millennials, morons, malcontents and moochers! Get out the vote!

While talking with family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances, it is important to remember that most people below the age of, say, 55, don't know much, if anything, about the true nature of socialism/communism, and may not even know what a "USSR" is. The Left had already begun making headway in the public schools, indoctrinating them to mistrust their elders and institutions --religious, social and political-- and American culture, our history, our Constitution. Journalists of their own will submitted themselves to the influence of the Left aka Dem Party. This is bizarre, considering how following every leftwing revolution it takes the iron fist of the new dictatorship to bring the media into obedience. So we've got an obsequious bunch of toadies who are ignorant, incurious, immature. They are the product of our propaganda mills known as educational institutions, and like Stalin's plucked chickens come hobbling back to their masters cluck-clucking what their masters (the Dem/Left) want to hear. And of course, this failure of journalists to pursue the truth and to attempt objectivity, is a potentially fatal detriment to free citizens in what's supposed to be a self-governing Republic. So we've got to speak the truth. Some will hear it and learn.

I really didn't think Donald Trump would be elected President. I wanted him to win. It was one of my most satisfying votes ever, but I thought the rats would steal it. Luckily they believed all the projections then. Now they have had almost 4 years to fine tune their usual rigged districts and come up with a plan for the rest. Logically President Trump should win a 2nd term. Even his haters have done better under his administration vs the last one, unless they had one of the many insider sweetheart deals like the $750 million ACA website scam. On the other hand there is a massive Orwellian brainwashed population of insane losers of all ages ready to vote for anyone but President Trump. Hope I'm wrong.

The Trump administration said Tuesday that it is waiving federal contracting laws to speed construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, moving the president closer to fulfilling a signature campaign promise in an election year but sparking criticism about potential for fraud, waste and abuse. The Department of Homeland Security said waiving procurement regulations will allow 177 miles (283 kilometers) of wall to be built more quickly in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The 10 waived laws include a requirement for open competition and giving losing bidders a chance to protest decisions.

President Trump’s resiliency in the face of being impeached and amid the constant barrage of attacks against him since day one has been a source of immense frustration for Democrats in 2020, especially in the aftermath of his unapologetic State of the Union address and his acquittal after the Senate’s impeachment trial. Adding an extra layer of frustration for Democrats are several recent polls on the economy, in which Trump has received record-high numbers and where a clear majority of the American people have expressed that they are better of now than they were in 2016.

Obama’s corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged DOJ and FBI officials NOT to resign following Bill Barr’s decision to intervene in Roger Stone’s sentencing. Four of Mueller’s thug prosecutors resigned last week after Bill Barr refiled their abusive sentencing memo recommending 67-year-old Roger Stone spend 7 to 9 years in prison. The Department of Justice last week said it was “shocked” at the excessive prison term being sought by Mueller’s prosecutors because it wasn’t what the DOJ was initially briefed on. “The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” the official told Fox News.

This wasn’t how the 2020 race was supposed to be. The establishment had a plan to take back control of Washington, D.C. Donald Trump had seized control and they needed to get it back. After surveying the options, the plan was to give Joe Biden, President Obama’s vice president, the nomination. The media did their part, suppressing negative messaging about the 77-year-old who has never won a presidential primary or caucus. They pushed an impeachment designed to suppress President Trump’s numbers heading into the election year. Instead, it helped Trump and hurt Democrats. When Bernie Sanders seemed poised to win Iowa, they drastically limited news coverage about the caucuses.

As New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg demanded that mothers breastfeed their babies and insisted hospitals keep baby formula under lock and key. In 2012, the current Democrat presidential candidate created the “Latch On” initiative, which exerted control over a mother’s decision on how to feed her baby. The Daily Mail reported at the time: Mayor Bloomberg has demanded that hospitals stop handing out baby formula to persuade more new mothers to breastfeed their babies. The New York City health department will monitor the number of formula bottles being given out and demand a medical reason for each one. More than half of the city’s hospitals agreed to institute the Latch On program.

The largest cohort of people treated in any medical system is the elderly. In England, beginning in April, those elderly had better watch their mouths or they’re going to find themselves denied the healthcare that they paid for with their taxes. The problem with socialized medicine is that, when it runs out of money (as it invariably does), the system has no alternative but to start rationing. Britain, which is saddled with the National Health Service, long ago began contemplating death panels. For example, Baroness Warnock, a well-known British medical ethicist (hah!), suggested denying all care to elderly people with dementia. In Liverpool, the NHS began stealth death panels

On Tuesday, the White House named the individuals whom President Trump pardoned or to whom he had granted clemency. People on both sides of the aisle were confused by the list but they shouldn’t have been. Trump was making a point about government overreach in prosecutions, as well as reminding people about his First Step Act, which brings reformed (mostly minority) prisoners home. Here’s a short rundown of the pardons and clemency grants.
