Trump claims triumphantly at his press conference...

"And Michigan has spoken - bigly - they rejected Nancy Haley because of her failure to secure the Capitol on Jan 6th"...

"Now on to Nov where I will vanquish my senile opponent, Joe Obama, standing next to my proud wife, Mercedes!"

Looks like I can start the countdown for when Trump wins and the warmongers crawl under their rocks…….again.

Both the White House and Biden campaign officials have made trips to Michigan in recent weeks to talk with community leaders about the Israel-Hamas war and how Biden has approached the conflict, 

Whats to talk about , it's pretty self evident how Biden administration has approached the Gaza conflict.

By single handedly vetoing 3 Gaza ceasefire resolutions at UN security council and bypassing Congress to continue sending more bombs to Netanyahoo to kill yet more Gaza women and children with. No wonder Arab Americans want to see Joe loose the election.

Michigan has become the epicenter for dissatisfied members of Biden’s coalition that propelled him to victory in the state — and nationally — in 2020.

The left always eats itself.

Always.

According to each set of exit polls from each primary (and caucus) held so far in 2024, they do NOT paint the picture that the Far Left Associated Press wants you to believe. In every election, Trump won Suburban votes, Trump won women and men, and the turnout of the GOP was higher than it had been before.

Interestingly, for Nikki "Warhawk" Haley, the number one supporters of her in Iowa and New Hampshire were...Democrats? Fully 63% and 52% of all her support, respectively, were from the other camp cross-voting to vote for another party. Gee...I wonder why they'd be voting for a Warhawk who stands NO chance, and never has done? These trends have held up in Michigan as well. And let's not get started on Biden's dismal approval ratings (by Gallup, not a conservative org by any stretch of the imagination) now habitually scoring lower than Trump recorded during ANY TIME in his presidency?

Democrats, and Biden in particular, should be extremely worried that Independents RFK, Jr. and Cornel West together are polling at over 20% nationally (which leaves out the socialists in the Green Party, at 3-5%). These numbers don't show up in primaries, but they WILL show up in the general election. How many GOP voters will choose an Ivy League skulking card-carrying Socialist or a Dynast who favors severe, unconstitutional gun restrictions and cutting the military by 60%? Now...how many Democrats fed up with Biden's ineptness, and angered by other issues as well, will? Let's find out!

At least Don won't be shaking hands with invisible people before tripping over himself ( hopefully )

This Italian TV Biden piece seems pretty accurate unfortunately.

Biden getting crushed in total votes. 20% refuse to vote got him as uncommitted.

Trump by himself beating him and “uncommitted” by 40,000 votes already.

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

With 40% of Republicans absolutely refusing to vote for him,

seems fine. He’s beating Biden by himself with zero votes added from Haley.

-6 ( +7 / -13 )

Perhaps not the best outcome for Republicans.

A poll of registered voters conducted by Marquette Law School Feb. 5-15 found that Nikki Haley would defeat Joe Biden by 16 points (58-42%), which is why the Biden campaign has been encouraging Democrats not to support her. Trump had only a 2-point lead (51-49%).

Moreover, a Fox News survey of more than 2,400 South Carolina Republican primary voters on February 24 found that 6-in-10 Haley voters would not support Trump in the general election, another reason the Biden campaign targeted her.

“Democrats warn voters against backing Nikki Haley in South Carolina,” New York Times, 1 February 2024, https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/nation-politics/democrats-warn-voters-against-backing-nikki-haley-in-south-carolina/

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Trump had only a 2-point lead (51-49%).

which is a 6 point lead because Joe needs to win by 4 because of California and New York.

So trump is winning the popular vote too? That’s so great!

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

With 40% of Republicans absolutely refusing to vote for him, he's going to have to be a unifier in some other way. I'm sure he'll figure out a way.

A lot of people changed their minds in 2016 and still voted for him, the same will happen as well. He’s already getting more black and Hispanic votes, so we shall see.

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

A lot of people changed their minds in 2016 and still voted for him, the same will happen as well.

Yes, he's very good at unifying people. His insurrection showed that. I'm sure more people will vote for him after his trouncing last time and his subsequent insurrection and criminal trials and sexual abuse scandals and findings of being a fraudulent businessman. That's the kind of guy people unify around right?

6 ( +11 / -5 )

Hes, he's very good at unifying people. His insurrection showed that. 

LOL!!

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

seems fine. He’s beating Biden by himself

Biden is far in the lead now - he won by 11 million votes. Trump has a long way to catch up...

4 ( +10 / -6 )

first insurrection in history where the insurrectionists stayed inside the velvet ropes Lol!

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

first insurrection in history where the insurrectionists stayed inside the velvet ropes Lol!

Also the first in which the head insurrectionist was the president. It was a historic day no doubt.

Our friends from the left are kinda short on actual voting facts today.

trump has 100,000 more than Biden already and growing.

Add 60% of Haley votes to that and it’s 187,000 more already and growing.

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

trump has 100,000 more than Biden already and growing.

Huh? Biden won by 11 million.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Huh? Biden won by 11 million.

that was last time. And was not 11 million but much less.

Today? you know the topic of the article?

Biden is getting annihilated. Running by himself and can only get 80%? What’s that?

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

that was last time.

Yep, literally the only one that matters, until the next one.

Biden is getting annihilated.

No he's not, he won by 11 million last time.

4 ( +9 / -5 )

Huh? Biden won by 11 million.

that was last time.

As a side note, I do believe that's the first time you've acknowledged publicly that Biden won by 11 million votes in 2020, after years of pretending that you think Trump won.

4 ( +9 / -5 )

"Biden is far in the lead now - he won by 11 million votes."

"11 million votes"? LOL. Check your math...or your sources? Or...both!

By the way, pro tip. In presidential elections in the US, the popular vote is NOT how people become President. I'm surprised you're ignorant on this fact.

Still dodging those HISTORICALLY HIGH Gallup Unapproval ratings for Biden, are we? You do that at your own peril...just as you dodge those Democrat-spoiler Third Party candidates getting on state ballots nationwide even as we type!

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

Our friends from the left are kinda short on actual voting facts today.

I'd say coming up short on "voting facts" is for three years thinking 72 million is more than 81 million...just like 61 courts have concluded...

Fox seemed to come up "short" on their facts too, costing them 3/4th of a billion dollars...

5 ( +8 / -3 )

As a side note

nah. Just tired of you deflecting away from the actual topic taking about 2020.

you do know there is voting TODAY right? Nobody taking about 4 years ago right now.

focus.

It's literally a matter of public record: Popular vote Biden 81,283,501 Trump 74,223,975

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_United_States_presidential_election

By the way, pro tip. In presidential elections in the US, the popular vote is NOT how people become President. I'm surprised you're ignorant on this fact.

He also won by a landslide in the electoral college.

8 ( +11 / -3 )

72 million is more than 81 million..

74+million. Neither of you can math. Or fact.

Or focus on the article that is about today’s embarrassing Biden results.

-9 ( +4 / -13 )

Looks like good news for Trump, +40pt ahead of Nikki. Trump's doing well with Union vote relative to 2020. Nikki's flailing to say the least, and she outspent Trump!

BIden's got serious problems with uncommitted, the GAZA Genocide protest vote, seems it on track for about 100K, youth, Muslim and Arabs especially.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

nah. Just tired of you deflecting away from the actual topic taking about 2020.

You just literally admitted that Biden won by 11 million votes last time:

Huh? Biden won by 11 million.

that was last time.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

you do know there is voting TODAY right? Nobody taking about 4 years ago right now.

There were primaries today. The only people Trump ran against were people on his team. And the last time he was in an actual race, he lost by 11 million votes, against the guy whose up against him again.

Again, Biden is crushing Trump by 11 million votes.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

72 million is more than 81 million..

74+million. Neither of you can math. Or fact.

The guy who for the past four years has pretended he thinks Trump won, is now admitting he didn't to get angry at us for not giving the correct amount Trump lost by. Go figure.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Just checked more closely, Biden's got serious problems with uncommitted vote, GAZA Genocide protest vote, on track for about 130K, youth, Muslim & Arabs especially.

Every vote matters as maybe #1 battleground, Biden also underperforming with Union vote relative to Trump 2020.

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

Seems MI Republican turnout a lot stronger than Democrats, another bad for Biden.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Biden's prospect of being on d's Nov ticket dropping in betting markets, about 40,% closer to 50% pre MI early results.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Biden's poor turnout for MI d's, 13-14% uncommitted vote, and poor union support relative to 2020 primary. Seems Biden can't put Gaza Genocide or EV/Green policies or illegal immigration/Open Borders or High Prices and Inflation back in a bottle. Biden OWNS IT.
