Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 12, 2019

The most unnerving example, from the Democratic perspective, is rural Robeson County. The ethnic makeup of this county is as follows: Native American (38.6%), White (25.7%), Black (24%), Hispanic (8.52%), Two or More Races (2.15%), Asian (0.66%), Other (0.275%). On Tuesday the Democrat received a fraction of the votes he received in 2018, running for the same seat.

Ryan Matsumoto of Inside Elections provides the gory details: "McCready won Robeson County by only 1.11 points, a MASSIVE decrease from his 15.31 point margin last November." In 2012, Obama carried Robeson by 17 points.

This is a county of about 143,000, and 74 percent of these folks are clearly not the racist rednecks the Democrats would have us believe make up most of the Trump/GOP base. The shift away from McCready was the result of disenchantment among minority voters with the Democrat. Moreover, though Robeson was the most obvious, it was by no means the only ethnically diverse county whose voters "walked away." Nearly 60 percent of Cumberland County's approximately 333,000 residents are Black, Hispanic, or a member of some other minority group. McCready won it in 2018. Dan Bishop won Cumberland on Tuesday.

Bishop barely won (50.8% to 48.6%) in a gerrymandered district that until now was a cakewalk for republicans. This article is nonsense.

This article is nonsense.

This article put up facts and backed it up with data.

Cumberland County is one you cant look away from. There are more black people around FT. Bragg than in a Popeye's restaurant.

It put up conjecture and backed it up with wishful thinking. It also completely ignores that fact that they are redrawing the districts next year and NC will be a totally different playing field after they do.

Who was the idiot the other day that posted "progressives read diverse sources?" Hahaha. I got a good laugh over that. They are blue bubblehead shut-ins that are terrified to leave their echo chamber.

Trump will carry 25%+ of the black vote. Dems heads will explode as they call the blacks supporting Trump racists.

According to fake news CNN poll - should have stopped reading there. Trump is already near 25% overall with black voters. Once the Dems make their choice, Trump will go up over 25% and participation will drop.

Altough your comment is strikingly stupid at least you admit that the unconstitutional maps were drawn to benefit republicans.

Let me get this straight...

You are picking out ONE county and saying it represents the country?

Do we talk about how the suburban portion of the entire district shifted left?

Or how the district slide 10 points left in the election from 2016?

It's NC there are small parts of many counties in that district.
