    Trump, Gaetz, MTG, others. I haven’t seen it in the polls yet. Trump still leads Biden. Two candidate race - https://www.realclearpolling.com/polls/president/general/2024/trump-vs-biden The 5 way race - https://www.realclearpolling.com/po...24/trump-vs-biden-vs-kennedy-vs-west-vs-stein


    You don’t see it in the generic congressional ballot, still a basic tie - https://www.realclearpolling.com/polls/state-of-the-union/2024/generic-congressional-vote


    Or going district by district where the Republicans have 21 at risk seats of switching vs. 23 for the democrats. Or in the senate where West Virginia is a guarantee to go republican with Ohio and Montana, currently held democratic seats a 100% pure tossup.


    But there’s something in the air, a sense that very dark clouds are on the horizon for the Republicans. Call it a feeling, much like that old geezer with his arthritic knees can feel a storm coming when there’s isn’t a cloud in the sky. That today marks the high-water mark for the GOP, that it’s all down hill from here. That much like the Titanic, they’ve hit the iceberg. That the Republicans don’t realize they’re sinking yet, but they are and they will.

    Trump Republicans' affinity for Putin, whether evident in Comer, Jordan, et al hyping Russian propaganda calculated to damage America's President, or their blocking vital aid to a desperate victim of Putin's savage aggression, cannot be allowed to befoul the GOP.

    Comer's hyperbolic campaign against Biden in the media could not be sustained in the realm of credible evidence, but valuable time and resources were diverted to the baseless smear campaign. It has been a self-indulgence the U.S. can ill afford. "Smear the President, because Trump orders us to" also deprived the nation of the first instance of border security progress in decades.

    Regarding the ill-fated hit job:

    Rep. James Comer apparently wants to put the whole matter behind him.

    The chairman of the House Oversight Committee
    reportedly told at least one of his colleagues he’s ready to be “done with” the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden after more than a year of investigations have turned up nothing...

    “Comer is hoping Jesus comes so he can get out,” one of the GOP lawmakers who spoke to Comer told CNN, per the report. “He is fed up.”...

    In December 2023, the House authorized the impeachment inquiry into Biden, with every Republican rallying behind the politically charged process despite lingering concerns among some in the party that the investigation has yet to produce evidence of misconduct by the president.

    The committee has asserted for the past year that the Bidens traded on the family name, by trying to link a handful of phone calls or dinner meetings between Joe Biden, when he was vice president or out of office, and Hunter Biden and his business associates.

    But despite dedicating countless resources and interviewing dozens of witnesses, including the president’s son Hunter Biden and the president’s brother James Biden, Republicans have not produced any evidence that shows Joe Biden was directly involved or benefited from his family’s businesses while in public office.

    I may be naïve, but I am convinced that there are still Republicans of integrity who recognize that our nation's enemy is not the Democratic Party, as Trump orders them to believe, but depraved autocrats such as the KGB thug, and that maligning certified democratic elections, the forces of law and order, and the nation's judiciary system is a pernicious enterprise that is inflicting serious harm on the United States.

    If so many of Trump's "best people" who had the misfortune of serving in Trump's regime are motivated by patriotism, and disgusted with the narcissistic conman's perversions, their incentive to restore the GOP to respectability can only intensify as the election approaches.

    The Democrats are the party that is a running a candidate that acts more like "Lurch" from "The Adams Family" than a viable president.

    Polls are useless. I thought we learned that in 2016 when all the polls showed Hillary ahead by a good margin.

    The only poll that matters is the one on election day.

    2016 polls were accurate. They had Clinton winning the popular vote by 3.3 points. She won it by 2.1 points. Well within the MOE of plus or minus 3 points. The polls coming within 1.2 points of the actual results is amazing.

    MAGA doesn't play partisan politics. MAGA knows full well that "BOTH" parties (the Uniparty) are traitors to this country and have sold out the working class and their jobs to China and illegal invaders.

    He also wonders around like a lost calf on stage after he gives a speech and shakes hands with "Mister Nobody."
