The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


Look how well this poll worked out for good old Jeb Bush! As much as we want to know what is coming, we simply can't predict anything this far out. Biden and several other frothing-at-the-mouth Democrats are beating President Trump in the polls? Sure...I'll buy that. How many people are actually taking this stuff seriously 16 months before the election? Not many...of that I am sure. Only political junkies and the propagandists in the media care about these things, and they pimp them to manipulate public opinion.

Jeb Bush surges to lead GOP pack in new 2016 poll

1. Jeb Bush 22%

2. Scott Walker 17%

3. Marco Rubio 14%

4. Ben Carson 11%

5. Mike Huckabee 9%

6. Rand Paul 7%

7. Rick Perry 5%

8. Ted Cruz 4%

9. Chris Christie 4%

10. Carly Fiorina 2%

11. Donald Trump 1%

12. Lindsey Graham 1%

13. John Kasich 1%

14. Bobby Jindal 0%

15. Rick Santorum 0%

16. George Pataki 0%
I'll tell you what's important: GOTV efforts and cleaning up the voter rolls. I think President Trump knows how to campaign, but the Democrats will redouble their efforts to flood the rolls with illegals and whip their faithful into a frenzy of Trump-hate. So the Republican party needs to get off its collective lazy ass and do what needs to be done.

No, I'm not confident at all that they will do their job. It is up to the voters...the Trump supporters who fought and beat the inside-the-beltway corporatists in 2016 to do it again, and maybe get rid of a bunch of the wishy-washy crypto-Never-Trumpers while they are at it.
