operatives asking: Could Trump drop
out?

Original Article

A stretch of lackluster polling for President Trump has some Republican operatives nervous about the president’s reelection prospects in November – with some even floating the possibility for the first time that Trump could drop out if his poll numbers don’t rebound. “It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News. “I’ve heard the talk but I doubt it’s true,” another said. “My bet is, he drops if he believes there’s no way to win.”    Correction*

Comments:

Whoa! I think FOX must be printing some reject article from CNN here. Not even CNN is willing to concede that Trump is worried about the election-they prefer to say that Trump won't leave the WH if he loses. FOX, what the hell is wrong with you, printing this bullshit fake news? Anonymous sources? No Name = BS FAKE NEWS, got that, FOX? /smh

I might be going out on a limb, but I daresay everyone who voted for Trump before knew the polls didn't mean jack. And they will vote for him again. He will pick up more votes from those who want law and order and an end to the virus insanity. Mail in voting is our biggest worry.

These are the same numbskulls who predicted Trump would get bored with being President would resign within two years in office. The numbskulls haven't learned a dang thing.

This is one of the very funniest in a long line of hapless "Trump is finished now!" proclamations by the enemy (and in this case Faux is definitely the enemy if not just playing one on TV). Remember that Paul Ryan is now on the board at Faux. Watch OAN. Fox Biz is also still pretty good.

If FNC did not have derogatory Trump gossip and lies to run, then ask a panel what they think about that, they’d have nothing to do all day. Increasingly, every show is the same. I see a change in Fox & Friends too. Paul Ryan’s influence is everywhere. Yes indeed, #7. Maria B. and Lou Dobbs certainly try over on FBN. God bless Tucker for his efforts too. Rest of the time for us its OAN and RSBN for live WH events.

At 7am I turned on Fox business and Stuart Varney was reporting Biden is ahead and if Trump doesn't change his behavior in a 120 days he could lose the election. It sounded like CNN don't count on Fox for numbers in the election they have gone to the other side like all the others losers. This is a dumb article written by some chump who wants Trump to lose or wishes it.

So I guess we're all supposed to go screaming into the night that the sky is falling because anti Trumpers "Gas Bag" Gasparino and FOX Fake News comes up with this little gem of polling? These idiots will never learn, things that might put a dent in a traditional republican's support are meaningless against Trump. Short of an earthquake that swallows up my polling place I'll be there to vote for him in November.

Charlie Gasparino? Seriously? He knows nothing. This is the latest meme they’re putting out, trying to plant a seed in the heads of the Deplorables. A little psychological warfare when nothing else seems to be working. The polls are of registered voters, which are virtually worthless. Only polls of likely voters mean anything, and that’s not much… Trust no polls. Keep on working to get President Trump reelected.

Remember President Trump is the ultimate populist “outsider” who was elected by the American people to oppose the “insider” DC crowd that includes a huge conglomerate of DC centric “UniParty” politicians, “Deep State” bureaucrats and for most people outside DC, an unimaginable numbers of “swamp” hangers on, including the DC and New York City media, consisting of entirely fake, liberal, and never-Trumper individuals and entities who are always out to “report” anything they can think of to create controversy including outright politically based propaganda. Those DC “insiders” have formed a resistance against the “outsider” Trump since before he was even elected, and now are running under the mantra that they have to get rid of Trump to get DC back to “normal”. To them that means to return to “insider” control of Congress and the White House so that “UniParty” and “Deep State” political and bureaucratic corruption can reign again supreme again throughout DC. So when you hear or read so called news reports coming out of DC you always have to consider the source.

Oh, honestly, do these people think we don’t remember that they were giving this exact same prediction about Trump in 2016? You’d think they’d learn a thing or two. He consistently surprises them because they refuse to see who he is. It’s a smaller manifestation of the larger mental disorder from which they suffer. Liberals cannot see the world the way it is and find happiness. They are constantly looking for what “should be,” and it drives them into shrieking madness because what “should be” is a fantasy. It simply doesn’t exist in the human experience, and it never will.

As Rush always says, polls don't report news, they try to make news. Nothing has worked for the Anti-American left and friends, so now we float the trial balloon of "Trump could drop out!" Just the NRA members alone should shoot this balloon down. Trump isn't a quitter like Romney and McCain. He's the proverbial Comeback Kid--if, indeed, he needed to comeback. Biden is the "come out, come out, wherever you are" kid. They're scared, the Anti-Americans. They know the tsunami is going to hit in November if they can't cause Trump himself to change our views of him. MAGA!!! KAG!!! TRUMP 2020 AND BEYOND!!! Whiners, you can't win fair and square so you try to scare us. We're smarter than you morons!

If Trump drops out or loses in November, which I doubt, the GOP will never win another election. The vote fraud and shifting (for the worse) Demographics Through Diversity will see to that. Plus, Trump has shown us what the Republican Party was. They played us for saps for years and a lot of us are not coming back. Won't get fooled again.

The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on "undoing your own whiteness" in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request. The session took place on June 12, as protesters took part in the so-called "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" in the Capitol Hill district. One handout distributed in the session reportedly declared how “racism is not our fault but we are responsible." Another said White staffers must give up “the land” and their “guaranteed physical safety” in order to be an “accomplice” for racial justice.

Ashburn, Va.—Washington’s NFL team will get rid of the name ‘Redskins’ on Monday, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported.

Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise. The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.

Dr Shaun Fitzgerald, a fellow at the Royal Academy of Engineering, said there were two types of air conditioning units - ones that take air in from outside and expel it out again, or those that recirculate the same

I introduced a bill months ago if the president pardons someone in which they’re a witness, subject, the files on that case will be provided to Congress, to evaluate whether this is another act of obstruction of justice.

The attention hasn't escaped Biden's vetting team. It has stepped up information-gathering on Duckworth recently, scrutinizing her legislative record and talking to her colleagues, according to three sources familiar with the matter. A contingent of Duckworth-for-VP backers, including high-dollar donors and a politically active veterans group, has intensified efforts on her behalf in the

Stone was prosecuted and convicted because he committed federal crimes. He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so,” Mueller added.
