Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Some Trump supporters in Democratic-leaning districts of Virginia, Wisconsin and other states say they feel maligned because of their conservative views. They are now banding together in convoys for solidarity. Here is what a ride on the "Trump train" looks like -- and what it means for the nation.

...The processions are driven by those who describe themselves as the president's base. As a demographic group, the president's base are white men and women who earn relatively high salaries but are less likely to have a college degree than Democratic voters, according to a study.

Many of these conservatives believe Democratic elites "look down on them because they're more religious and they're interested in guns", says Stephen Norwood, a history professor at University of Oklahoma in Norman, adding: "There's a lot of resentment that they've been overlooked." ...

You gotta love people who resent "elites" but put their undying faith in a NYC real estate developer who went to the Wharton School and claims to be a billionaire.

And assuming he nominates Barrett, they're about to go to the mat for a law professor was an English Lit major and has spent 75% of her career in academia and another 10% in government.

Man, those dang elites. Go get em, Trumpers!

Somewhere along the line republicans went from being small government deficit hawks to being pro police state... and they completely forgot the word deficit.

My view is most have nothing else in their lives so they cling to any movement that will have them. 90% will claim they never voted for Trump, just like Bush 2.

You lefties might consider that three years of Trump attacks has only hardened the same supporters who voted him into office.

I could not imagined that the Dems would put up a candidate worse then Hillary. Yet they did.
I can see even moderate Democrats jumping ship to Trump.

I would not be surprised if Trump wins by a blowout so massive that the controversial mail in votes won't make a difference.

Since Barry Goldwater ran against Johnson, I have not seen a worse run presidential campaign.

You'd say that about anyone the dems ran- That trump is better somehow, so its dems fault for making you support trump.

Of course you can't back it up by saying HOW the dems is worse than a con man who let his dumb kids and lobbyists run the country, got hundreds of thousands killed, and sold foreign policy in exchange for election help, but repubs dont care about evidence or facts.

Hard core Trump supporters are rubes who don't realize they mean nothing to Trump and are being manipulated by Russian interests as well. Hell, the number of Republicans who think Russia is a U.S. ally has been increasing since Trump's election:

RealClearPolitics Washington editor Carl Cannon called increased support for Russia among Republicans "disturbing" on Monday.

He also said the reason for the increased GOP support is related to President Trump's criticisms of the investigation of the 2016 presidential election.

"There's one other variable, and this is a little bit disturbing. In 2014, 22 percent of Republicans said that Russia was an ally, this was from a Gallup poll. That number's now 40 percent,"

You don't care how crazy the world is because you are crazy, too.

Trump knows he is not winning. So he will be surprised if he does win. Just like he was so surprised and pleased that Russia helped him win last time in 2016.

Either you're dumber than a bag of hammers or insane.
But then again you're a Trumper so it's likely both.

Trump is doing all of these shenanigans because his internal polling shows him getting landslided by Biden, with Biden likely getting between 350 to 400 EC votes.

If Trump was confident he'd win, he wouldn't be trying to suppress the vote.

You mean like this?

Any and all intimidation is wrong.

But let's compare the two.

From your link in #46:

Two members of the New Black Panther Party, Minister King Samir Shabazz, and Jerry Jackson, stood in front of the entrance to the polling station in uniforms that have been described as military or paramilitary.[5][6] Minister King Samir Shabazz carried a billy club, and is reported to have pointed it at voters while both men shouted racial slurs,[7] including phrases such as "white devil" and "you're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."[8]

The incident drew the attention of police, who around 10:00 am, sent King Samir away in part because of his billy club. Jackson was allowed to stay, in part because he was a certified poll watcher.[9] Stephen Robert Morse, a journalist and filmmaker, upon arriving at the scene, pulled out a Flip video camera and focused on Samir Shabazz.[10] The incident gained national attention after being uploaded to YouTube and quickly going viral. No complaints were filed by voters about the incident,


I'm not condoning Samir pointing at or yelling anything at anyone.

There were only two people. The cops showed up to send one away. The other was supposed to be there. There were no complaints.

This article is about a group of people chanting Trump and waving flags at a polling station over a month before Election Day. Despite you being an Alpha male. Seeing a group of Trump supporters at a polling station may actually intimidate voters who don't feel as able to protect themselves.

No cops showed up. None of them need to be there.

It shouldn't be allowed. I'd say the same regardless of who the group was representing.

"Seeing a group of Trump supporters at a polling station may actually intimidate voters who don't feel as able to protect themselves."

Conservatives are fine with that.

In fact, it seems like they actually favor that.

Even level-headed Clinton-voting Eberly thinks it's okay to run off thin-skinned voters.
