Signs indicate California could redden substantially!
As the nation’s press focuses on the presidential race, it is ignoring some fascinating signs that the Golden State may become much redder November 3rd.
To begin with, JD Rucker editor-in-chief of the conservative NOQ Report, analyzed the results of the district elections and asserts that nine of the seats are poised to be flipped from blue to red while the one red district at risk looks like it may stay red.
First, these aren’t nine seats that are deemed “in play” through some election miracle. These are nine seats currently held by Democrats where Republicans have the upper hand based on analysis of Tuesday’s primary votes. Second—and this is very important to understand—with only one statewide ballot measure, the main draw was the Democratic presidential primary in which Republicans may not vote. That means that even without the draw of a presidential primary choice, nine seats showed Republicans either within striking distance or outright beating Democrats.
The “jungle primary” system for congressional seats means everyone gets the same ballot choices. The top two finishers in the primary will go head-to-head in the general election. Based on these criteria, a shocking number of Democratic seats are now in jeopardy in November.
Red State’s Kira Davis says that Trump, if he plays it smart, can make a difference in California. The reason? The freelance job-killing measure, AB5.
…The California electorate is extremely tolerant of Sacramento’s nonsense (which should be obvious). We live in a gorgeous state, one of the most beautiful in the union if you ask me. People will put up with a lot just for the honor of calling this home. And to be fair, most of the people who vote for what ails us aren’t being stupid or evil, they just genuinely believe these laws are helpful. They care, they just don’t necessarily understand all the “unintended consequences” of the “help” they’re voting for. They do not deserve your scorn for that.
When AB5 came along it rocked the world of almost every faithful Democrat voter. There is hardly a business or a person here that isn’t tied to independent contracting in some way, and since we have that super majority it is strikingly and undeniably clear that this is the California Democrat party that has done this to us. There is simply no one else to blame, even if we wanted to. What’s worse, the response from Democrat elected officials has been underwhelming at the least, downright dismissive and rude at its worst.
The bill’s author – Lorena Gonzalez (CA-80) – has been flooded with emails, calls and social media pleas to reverse her position and support her constituents who are begging for help. Her response has been anything but diplomatic. From calling her faithful Democrat voters “trolls and bots” to telling them those freelance jobs they love aren’t “real jobs” anyway to using vulgarity to accuse them of being Trump voters in disguise, she has been nothing but churlish, obscene and insulting.
Davis suggests Trump do an “I feel your pain” tour of California and hit AB5 hard. The President can also remind the voters of all the #Resist antics. Furthermore, Trump could also give the entire state of California the “Baltimore” treatment, and after the Golden State recovers from the coronavirus mess, the voters may be in the mood for new leadership that considers sanitation and infrastructure more important that Trump-hate.
How popular is Trump in California? He generated enough enthusiasm to garner 400,000 more voted than Bernie Sanders.
Trump stands at 1,457,369 votes while Bernie has only 1,004,879.
To be fair, the Democrat votes were split up between several candidates, but the bottom line is that more Californians cast their vote for Donald Trump than Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday.
THAT is worth writing home about!
And while that enthusiasm isn’t enough for an election night win of California, it may be enough to help Trump take the gavel away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.DONATE
