The honesty that sold out his supporters during the run up to the Democratic convention in 2016? That honesty?

Honesty? I doubt he remembers what the word means.

RESULTS Matter...


In a major victory for both President Trump and national Republicans, North Carolina GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election for the 9th District that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president's chances in the 2020 election.

And another Republican House candidate, Greg Murphy, decisively won a separate special election in North Carolina's more solidly GOP-leaning 3rd District earlier Tuesday evening -- frustrating Democrats who spent millions trying to make a splash in the state.

Even Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos acknowledged that the president contributed to Bishop's win, writing in a statement that "we fell an inch short tonight, but it took more than $6 million in outside Republican spending and a last-minute Trump rally" to seal Democratic candidate Dan McCready's fate in the 9th District.

The clean sweep heartened the president, who has long emphasized the national implications at stake. Trump unloaded on McCready in the fiery rally on Monday night, telling attendees that "to stop the far-left, you must vote in tomorrow's special election."

That effort, Trump said late Tuesday, had clearly paid dividends. (See Trump Tweet image)

This was just THE BEGINNING. Sorry CNN. Your poll SUCKED (as usual).

I didn't mean you specifically Red. The liberal hope of this being easy has been shown to be false. Silly notion that.

I think most people already either know or suspect the polls are not correct anymore. Even those who claim otherwise.

This. And the bias of the media. We find ourselves in the Partisan Era.

Isn’t North Carolina almost always a red state??


These elections last night were for Congressional Districts.
It was not a statewide election

In 2018 for NC-09, the Republicans won by less than 1% - actually less than 1,000 votes and the result was eventually thrown out and another election ordered - last night.
Prior to the election, the Dems were optimistic and ploughed over $4m into the race and the polls had their candidate winning. However, the Republicans won, spending only 1/3 on the campaign compared to the Dems. The result was a wider margin than 2018.

In 2016, NC-09 was a much bigger win for Republicans, which is where the media have focused their story.

This is another example of how the media directs political optics. See no evil speak no evil hear no evil and all. Wouldnt it be nice to have one single source available that just reported only unspun facts with no attached opinions?

The only reason the GOP won was because of racism and people were too scared to vote because of red hats. The blue wave also hasn't hit shore yet like it was supposed to but that just means it is picking up more momentum so when it does it will be a blue wall to overcome the Trump wall and will free the south border so everyone can get into America as is their right.

The present policies of the DNC (open borders, maximum socialism, higher taxes, special interests over majority needs, and a slower economy) seem to be too much for the Tarheels, despite recent leftward moves in the state.


People don't want higher taxes?
Does the dnc know this?

They had hints...but they understand that socialist govt needs money. Lots of it. In any case...its just those rich guys that will get hit. And they will take it lying down.

The results were on the crawl at the bottom of the screen on MSNBC until the election was called.

No one was silent.


pushing the divide.

It will be interesting to see if they continue with the national platform of gun confiscation and higher taxes.

The poll showing Bishop down by 17 points had to be fake. His opponent would pretty much need to have been caught raping a puppy to fall that far that fast.

We can only hope for such sweet silence on Wed, November 4, 2020. But know the clamor will sound like the wails of the dead.

That's why I find this election telling for 2020. If the Democrats cannot take the easiest state there is in the South to take, with every advantage in the book, well, there's just not a lot of hope nationally for them.

Thank you very much for this... combined with the news that Bolton is gone, I'm really enjoying my coffee this morning.

I saw it being reported on that one station the left are always telling us is full of nothing but lies. What is it again, Fox News? Yeah, no wonder they hate that station. (not like we didn't already know the left hates Fox for exposing democrat lies)

So, what did you think of this as a 2020 barometer, do you agree with your liberal collegues on television?
