Forget The Media Spin — Here's Who GOP
Voters Really Favor As Trump's V.P.: I&I/TIPP Poll

Original Article

Who should be Donald Trump’s vice presidential running mate? Though no one yet knows who it will be, many people seem to have an opinion about whom it should be. It’s a long list of possible names for the increasingly important vice presidential job, as the latest I&I/TIPP Poll indicates. As part of our monthly national online poll, taken from May 1-3, we asked 538 Republicans, and those who lean that way, two questions about who they preferred as Trump’s vice president. The poll has a margin of error of +/-4.3 percentage points. First we asked a straightforward question: “Who is your top choice for Trump’s vice president?”

Who are the numbskulls voting for Nikki Haley? Did these clowns not get enough backstabbing from Mike Pence?

And there likely are few actual Republicans who want DeSantis as VP. He turned on Trump and I won't forget that.

No way Nikki Haley is in the running. Vivek reminds me too much of a slimy used car salesman - telling you what you want to hear, not what he really believes. Looking at the number, DeSantis is the best choice. People like what he is doing in FL. If he would just tell the Repubs that were running the party to **** off.

I know PDT gets large crowds at his rallies, but there are a lot of unwoke Republicans out here. A lot of them still watch Faux, and they have no idea the election was stolen. Talk to your Republican friends and wake them up! We need more conservatives.

Lots of really bad choices in that poll. Haley? REALLY? Super bad idea. Sara Sanders would be a good choice, in my opinion. Very articulate on the issues, excellent public speaker and may bring some of the women voters, too. Smart lady. Ramswamy? No way. He talks a great game, but has no real history to prove anything, and some Soros taint that hasn't been washed away. DeSantis would be good but is needed in Florida. Carlson? That's just a stupid idea.

The first poll has Not Sure getting the highest percentage, which means most don't know or care. Sarah Huckabee Sanders - current governor and was Press Secretary for Trump Tim Scott - great story and decent guy Doug Burgum - current governor of North Dakota and wealthy business man. A key point will be someone who can articulate the message, not worry about the slings and arrows that will come their way, knowledge of the structure of government so you can get things done, and is able to discern who will be looking to row the boat in the same direction (avoiding those who look to undermine the administration).

I support General Michael Flynn. He's a man's man, like President Trump. And like President Trump he has already been through the machinations of the Deep State's maw...and survived. He's battle tested and has learned the enemy's tactics. He has skin in the game, shall we say. General Flynn is an experienced leader of men in arms, and will not fear to do what needs to be done. We need a vice president that will be able to continue the MAGA agenda for his own two terms as president, so that twelve years of MAGA will redirect the course of our country back to the Constitution in the same way the New Deal turned it away. A woman vice president is just not capable of the doing the job at hand. Our sex was not created for the tasks required in these times, at this level. We need to look beyond this year's ticket. President Trump's VP pick will have to carry MAGA into the future. I believe General Flynn is that man.

Can the President and Vice President Be From the Same State? A particular aspect of the Electoral College system has led to some confusion on this question. They can be from the same state. Remember, President and Vice President are now elected separately. 12th Amendmnt speaks to electoral college members.

The latest New York Times poll looks like an absolute disaster for Joe Biden. But not just because he is far behind Donald Trump in most of the battleground states. What’s really interesting is the fact that these findings are a repudiation of Biden’s entire presidency. The Times poll shows Donald Trump leading Biden by substantial margins in Arizona (up seven points), Georgia (up 10 points), and Nevada (up 12 points). Trump is also up by three points in Pennsylvania and seven in Michigan. The only battleground state where Biden does better is Wisconsin, up by just two points. But notice the difference between Sun Belt states and those in the Midwest.

Google has come in for some well-deserved criticism after its “artificial intelligence” wouldn’t answer a simple question: How many Jews did the Nazis kill? That’s bad enough. But then a not-so-intelligent Google employee compounded the problem with a lie about why it happened.

"They have the money to spend.” — President Joe Biden Those of us who’ve been around a while remember when the press made an epic deal out of President George H.W. Bush’s apparent amazement at an ordinary grocery store checkout scanner. It turns out the story was a complete media fabrication, but it fed the narrative that Bush was hopelessly out of touch, and it helped cost him his reelection. This week, Joe Biden actually did do something that shows he is perhaps the most clueless president in American history. In a softball interview this week, CNN’s Erin Burnett let Biden carry on — uninterrupted — with his usual litany of lies.

President Joe Biden has a tenuous lead over lawfare-challenged former President Donald Trump, but continues to show weakness among key voting groups that he needs to win a second term in office, the latest numbers from the May I&I/TIPP Poll show. The national online I&I/TIPP Poll, taken from May 1-3, included 1,264 responses to a number of questions about the upcoming 2024 presidential election. The poll’s margin of error is +/-2.8 percentage points. Our main question was to ask registered voters about a straight, head-to-head matchup between Biden and Trump. More specifically, voters were asked to choose among Biden, Trump, “not sure” “other” and “prefer not to answer” as possible responses.

Joe Biden got his start in politics in the 1970s and appears determined to recreate the world as it existed back then. Misguided federal policies have pushed energy prices to punishingly high levels. Americans are struggling with inflation. Radical Muslims are holding American citizens hostage in the Middle East. Our adversaries, including Russia, are on the march. Even bell bottoms are making a comeback. And, now, the pièce de résistance of the 1970s is also making a comeback: stagflation. Stagflation.

California Democrats who pushed through the state’s punitive new minimum wage must be feeling mighty proud about now. Not only are fast-food joints closing or replacing low-end employees with overseas workers and robots, now the law is costing the very people it was supposed to help while decimating consumers’ wallets. Well done! The $20-an-hour wage floor foisted on California’s fast-food restaurants, dubbed with the innocent-sounding moniker Assembly Bill 257, was signed into law last fall. It didn’t take long to become a disaster. Hoover Institution senior fellow and economist Lee Ohanian showed just how quickly bad policies can wreck an economy.

The former president is on trial for allegedly falsifying business records to cover up a hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels amid the 2016 presidential election.

He also assailed Pride month, a particularly important time for the LGBTQ+ rights movement, and President Joe Biden's stance on abortion.

Alongside Biden's announcement came a letter from his campaign to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), and that letter revealed a few critical limits that Biden's team was placing on any debate between him and Trump.

California Gov.

As CalMatters noted, deficit estimates ranged from $38 billion to $73 billion: That prompted Newsom and the Legislature to take “early action” last month to reduce the deficit by more than $17 billion ahead of the regular budget process. Their plan included some program cuts, but mostly relied on new revenue, internal borrowing and funding delays and shifts for savings,
