Closing Thought–30Jul21

Polls are notoriously wrong….take the elections of 2016 and 2020….wrong.

This poll taken shows that those cowards that cower to Trump and basically supported the insurrection of 06 January may have a tough time in the mid-terms….

Even moments after a mob of extremist supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election, a number of Republican lawmakers—during the joint Congressional session acknowledging then-President-elect Joe Biden’s victory—proceeded with objections to electoral votes in swing states Trump lost.

Some Republican lawmakers—like now-former Senator from Georgia, Kelly Loeffler—revoked their intended objections after the rioters shattered windows, ransacked offices, beat police officers, and breached the Senate floor, calling for the execution of any lawmaker they saw as disloyal to Trump.

Others—like Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri—continued with their objections, and have since continued to downplay the severity of the riots and absolve themselves of their culpability.

This is where the Republican party began to splinter in its mostly unconditional allegiance to Trump. Who stood up to the mob? Who proceeded to amplify the same lies that had endangered the lives of their colleagues only an hour before?

Which principles would Republican voters side with in the next election?

That last question remains unanswered, and people are divided in their predictions.

We Americans can only hope that for once a poll may be accurate…..but then it is a poll and they have been useless in the past as a predictor.

  1. Ever since Trump and Brexit in 2016, I have taken no notice of any polls.
    Polls here forecast Trump would lose, and that the UK would remain in the EU. They were spectacularly wrong.
    Best wishes, Pete.
