Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 19, 2019

President Trump's approval ratings are under water in national polls. His position for re-election, on the other hand, might not be quite so bleak. His advantage in the Electoral College, relative to the national popular vote, may be even larger than it was in 2016, according to an Upshot analysis of election results and polling data. That persistent edge leaves him closer to re-election than one would think based on national polls. The mostly white working-class Rust Belt states, decisive in the 2016 election, remain at the center of the electoral map, based on our estimates. The Democrats have few obviously promising alternative paths to win without these battleground states. The president's approval ratings remain higher in the Sun Belt battlegrounds than in the Rust Belt, despite Democratic hopes of a breakthrough.

Maybe they should offer them bigotry instead? Works for Trump.

Trump hasn't done anything for working people, yet I work with some religious fools that believe this is only because of massive government and Democrat resistance.

I have a colleague that is into Bernie but increasingly says she believes things Trump says. It's very strange to see.
