If Trump runs and does not win, you know the primary is fixed and the RINOs are doing the exact same as the Democrats.
If Trump does not run and a true ultra MAGA candidate does not win (such as De Santis or MTG), you know the primary is fixed and the RINOs are doing the exact same as the Democrats.
If Mike Pence ever polls over 1.5% in any opinion poll you know it is being manipulated massively by the RINOs and is total BS.
But wait......we already know that RINOs are corrupt pieces of shit.

Exactly. He was polling at 2% a few months ago. They’re going to gradually increase fake polling numbers until they really need to cheat

Drooperdoo 11 points ago +11 / -0

Of course Pence was only polling at 2%. He's only supported by dual-citizen neocons. They're 2% of our country's population.

Methinks this same group (famous for manipulative Enron-style accounting scams) has now brought the shady math they used for various famous (though controversial) historical narratives to help Mike Pence. Most recently, they used their unethical accounting practices to gin up unjustified fear related to Covid. Love how they conflated "cases" of Covid to "deaths from Covid". (Or the even scammier "deaths WITH Covid").

These poll numbers have that smell to them. "In a poll, no one actually selected Pence as their choice. But they knew his name and nominated Trump or De Santis. So, knowing Pence's name, we listed votes for De Santis as votes for Pence . . . which we listed as "votes WITH Pence in mind," even if the literal votes were cast for De Santis.

  • Footnote: If you think about it, this con is designed to sabotage De Santis. To make it seem like he's NOT Trump's big (and only) rival. They're using Pence as a stalking horse to steal votes from De Santis.

It does look like Pence is the establishment's pick to lead the controlled opposition party.

A recent episode of Washington Week (PBS) was focused on the Jan 6 Committee Hearings.

In addition to promoting the usual lies (Jan 6 was an insurrection, the Committee is saving "our democracy", etc.), they spent a lot of time telling the audience that Mike Pence was a hero on Jan 6th, standing at his post while Trump did nothing, blah, blah, blah.

It was laughable, but also sickening.

Kinda like how they had Trump losing by double digits leading up to 2020 and slowly increased his odds up until they were somewhat close to the steal numbers at the end.

Condition us for the unfathomable and then adjust the numbers closer to the final result of their choosing.

Setting themselves up for failure.

As if Trump is not going to make Pence explain himself, in relation to Pence and Dr Felchi being entirely responsible for Operation Warpspeed.

Portfolios and all that.

Trump has already taken the heat for that, and half of his base hates him for it.

But the moment he runs, he throws pence under the bus and MAGA mania is going to go wild...

and ratings ratings ratings... trump gets to climb climb climb his way to a level of popularity that the dominion machines will spontaneously combust.

2
Pepedom 2 points ago +2 / -0

The gop will put into place a Dem-like special delegate system to push Trump out. This will seriously anger the base but with only 2 parties, people will still either vote Rep or not vote. The Reps don't mind losing the election bc we actually have a uniparty.

Cozette 4 points ago +6 / -2

Ron was one of Florida's reps in DC while Florida was still controlled by Bush Neocon Globalist Republicans. Trump nuked Jeb/Rubio during the 2015/16 primary in Florida and started shifting Florida to being more MAGA Republican.

As a young, ambitious, career politician, Florida Ron was savvy enough to jump on Trumps MAGA Train and to start emulating Trumps mannerisms and style.

Trumps the only reason Rons governor right now. His margin of victory over Gillum was only 0.4% of the total vote.

Its too soon to tell who Ron really is but he's definitely NOT a visionary leader like Trump nor does he have the talent stack, skill set or assets to do what needs to be done in DC. Trump does.

Those hyping De Santis 2024 are Never Trump Establishment CONservatives who want to coopt MAGA like they coopted the Tea Party movement. They realize that first they most get rid of MAGAs visionary leader and ruthless protector, President Trump.

Btw nothing written was intended to be a knock on Ron as Florida's governor. I don't know enough to opine. My comments were only meant to rebuke the ridiculous De Santis 2024 psyop.

Keith 2 points ago +2 / -0

Trump 2024 Desantis 2028

I agree with what you say, but who's a better choice after Trump?

I like Stephen miller, Anthony Sabatini would actually be my choice, he might be more MAGA than Trump, but he's still low level and young.

I used to consider Ted Cruz, but nah. Gaetz, nah. I like Jim Jordan too. Most of DC is swamp there's not much there. MGT is a consideration. Rand Paul. There's not much to choose from.

dr_gonzo 3 points ago +3 / -0

So you consider comments that fly in the face of all empirical data and objective observation to be "insightful"? Or are you so ignorant you don't realize that the numbers clearly show those dastardly boomers to be the most conservative generation in the country? Has it not dawned on you that Trump himself is a boomer?

Gee, when was it again that the country fell off the cliff of Neo-Marxist insanity? Oh that's right, it was exactly when millennials reached post-adolescence. If older generations are the problem, why is it things get exponentially worse as younger generations replace them? And if younger generations are so based, why is it NOTHING reflects that? Not polls, not surveys, not voting stats, not observation, not TV ratings, not website clicks....

Btw, I'm not a boomer. I'm just not an idiot that insists on blaming others because I'm too weak minded to accept responsibility for my own abysmally brainwashed generation.

Crockett 1 point ago +1 / -0

The participation trophies, the political correctness, the "high-ground" conservatism that never takes a stand and always compromises, the embrace of multi-culturalism, the outsourcing of American industry, the feminization of the workplace, the replacement of thought with TV-watching, the replacement of community with consumerism.

These are all the things that boomers made central to their American identity. These are also all the reasons why Millennials turned out to be stupid, entitled, dissatisfied twats. You don't get to piss on the grass then wonder why it turned yellow.

It's like blaming the guy who stepped on the landmine for blowing up instead of blaming the person who planted the mine.

Fuck Millennials, seriously. I'm one of them, and I hate them. But the reason they're fucked up is that they've been raised without any of the cultural or traditional basis that Boomers grew up with, then allowed to wither away because they were too obsessed with their own comfort to actually stand up and protect the wonderful world they inherited. Now Millennials are poorly informed, and trying to make sense of a clown world a world that sucks ass because goosing GDP and not being called racist were more important to their parents than keeping civilization running.

7
Cozette 7 points ago +7 / -0

A KEY to Trumps visionary MAGA Projects success is a reawakened and active American citizenry and a return to the sovereignty of states and local representative government.

Remember Trumps famous Inaugural Speech. He said it wasn't about transferring power in DC from one party to the other. It was about taking power FROM DC and returning it to the people ie to the cities and states where they live.

Fwiw, DC is NOT one of the 50 states that make up the United States of America.

Bottom line, Trump needs MORE MAGA governors not fewer MAGA governors. Shipping a young first term MAGA governor to the DC Swamp makes zero strategic sense.

Finalky, my current favorite Trump VP pick is Steve Cortes, the down to earth, media savvy, MAGA loyalist, famous for his Chalk Talks.

The_RedWolf 1 point ago +1 / -0

He's got a lot of trump's positives but doesn't have a lot of trump's negatives.

Age, lacks major controversies, isn't even close to remotely hated by the left by comparsion (not enough to run out and vote anyway)

I'm not going to lie, the big reason I'd prefer DeSantis over Trump is age. DeSantis is simply decades younger. I'm tired of old men in office and there's no guarantee that trump won't mentally decline during his next term as it eventually comes for us all who live long enough.

Crockett 2 points ago +2 / -0

The nomination obviously, but also the general. Personally, I think DeSantis has a much better chance in the general than Trump, no matter who he is running against. Trump will make it about Trump, and a runback of 2020, and that's not a winning proposition. He could win with that, but why even bother when the Democrats' record is so abysmal? Make the election about the Biden presidency, like DeSantis will, and it's a fucking slam dunk.

Perhaps explain why you imagine 54% is "quite low"? In reality, its not.

DC is NOT the KEY to Trumps MAGA Project makeover. What is? The reassigned American PEOPLE and the cities and states where they live.

I view this as a test of MAGA vision.
