Following Kavanaugh Hearing Midterm Election Polls Take Sharp Turn

Published

on

Finally, people are starting to wake up.

It seems like after the unfair shenanigans that the Democrats tried to pull with the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, people have woken up and are fired up to deliver a red wave in next month’s midterm elections.

Polls are saying there has been a sharp uptick in Republican interest in all five states surveyed. In contrast to early September, the number of Republicans feeling “extremely” interested in the upcoming election is up by 2 points in Arizona, up by 9 points in Indiana, up 8 points in both Missouri and North Dakota, and up 11 points in Tennessee.

In each of these states, Republicans are now just as likely as Democrats to say they are extremely interested. Just a few months ago this wasn’t the case. Republicans weren’t as likely to get out and vote as Democrats were. But thanks to the Democrats and their obvious witch-hunt against an innocent man, Kavanagh, that’s now changed.

This is all very encouraging although the races are far from settled since only one of the Senate candidates has a lead outside the survey’s margin of sampling error. And that same candidate is also the only front-runner above the important marker of 50 percent support from their electorate. So the right still needs to get out and vote in November unless they want a Democrat takeover of the Senate.

Here is more via Fox News:

“Arizona

“Democrat Kyrsten Sinema tops Republican Martha McSally by a 47-45 percent margin in the Senate race to fill the open seat of retiring Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. Last month, Sinema was up 47-44 percent (September 8-11).

“Sinema is helped by strong backing among women (+9 points), voters under age 45 (+14) and Hispanics (+29). She also enjoys greater party loyalty, as 91 percent of Democrats back her vs. 83 percent of Republicans for McSally.

“However, McSally’s overall support is stronger, with 83 percent of her backers saying they are certain to vote for her compared to 71 percent of Sinema’s.

“Veterans prefer McSally, a retired Air Force pilot, by a 25-point margin. In addition, she leads among white voters (+5) and voters over age 45 (+4).

“The two candidates are about equally liked. For Sinema, 48 percent have a favorable opinion vs. 41 percent unfavorable. For McSally, it’s 46-45 percent.

“President Trump won Arizona by nearly four percentage points in 2016. That’s in line with his current job rating, as 51 percent of the state’s likely voters approve, while 47 percent disapprove.

“Indiana

“Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly tops Republican challenger Mike Braun by two points (43-41 percent), while Libertarian Lucy Brenton takes 6 percent. Eight percent are undecided.

“That’s a reversal from early September, when Braun had a two-point edge (45-43 percent).

“Men are more likely to back Braun by a 9-point margin, while women pick Donnelly by 11.

“Voters with a college degree support Donnelly by 10 points, while those without a degree go for Braun by 3 points.

“Strength of support is about equal: 77 percent of Braun’s backers say they are certain to vote for him. It’s 74 percent for Donnelly.

“If Donnelly votes against Kavanaugh, 30 percent say it would make them more likely to vote for him, 32 percent say less likely, and 34 percent say no difference.

“The Democrat announced he would vote against Kavanaugh on September 28, after Senate Judiciary Committee hearings that included testimony by Christine Blasey Ford on her sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

“While Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 19 points in Indiana, today Hoosier voters approve of his job performance by just 6: 52 percent approve, while 46 percent disapprove.

“Missouri

“The Missouri Senate race is all tied up at 43 percent apiece for incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and Republican challenger Josh Hawley, while other candidates garner 8 percent and six percent are undecided. Three weeks ago, McCaskill was up 44-41 percent (September 8-11).

“The survey also finds the race tied, 46-46 percent, in a hypothetical two-way matchup.

“Suburban women (+15 points) and voters under age 45 (+6) are more likely to back McCaskill.

“The gender gap is somewhat diminished, as McCaskill’s advantage among women stands at 4 points, down from 9 points last month.

“Hawley has the edge among men (+5 points) and rural voters (+22).

“About three-quarters of both McCaskill’s (75 percent) and Hawley’s supporters (74 percent) feel certain they will back their candidate.

“McCaskill announced she would vote against Kavanaugh September 19, a week before Kavanaugh and Ford testified.

“Among the 28 percent of voters who say they could still switch candidates, almost twice as many say McCaskill voting against Kavanaugh’s confirmation would make them less inclined to back her.

“In general, voters have mixed views of both McCaskill (48 favorable vs. 48 unfavorable) and Hawley (47-45 percent).

“The president remains popular in the Show-Me State: a majority of 54 percent approves of the job Trump is doing, while 45 percent disapprove. He won Missouri by 19 points.

“North Dakota

“Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats this year, along with Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly.

“The survey shows Heitkamp may be in the most difficult position, as Republican challenger Kevin Cramer now leads by 12 points (53-41 percent). Last month, he was up by four (48-44 percent).

“The shift comes mainly from declines in support for Heitkamp among women (was up by 7 points, now trails by 4), and voters with a college degree (was up by 7, now trails by 8).

“More Democrats back Heitkamp (94 percent) than Republicans back Cramer (87 percent), but in a state so red that Trump won by nearly 40 points, that isn’t enough.

“Strength of support is also with Cramer. Nearly 9 in 10 (87 percent) of his supporters are sure of their vote, compared to 8 in 10 Heitkamp backers (79 percent).

“Heitkamp remains undecided on Kavanaugh. If she votes against his confirmation, twice as many say they would be less likely (34 percent) rather than more likely (17 percent) to vote for her.

“By a 64-35 percent margin, likely voters approve of the president. That 29-point spread comes close to matching his 36-point margin of victory in 2016.

“Meanwhile, Republican Kelly Armstrong (51 percent) leads Democrat Mac Schneider (34 percent) by 17 points for the state’s only House seat, which Cramer vacated to run for Senate.

“Tennessee

“The president held a rally Monday in Johnson City, Tennessee. He won the state by 26 points, and voters there still love him. Likely voters in the Volunteer State approve of Trump’s job performance by 60-39 percent.

“That helps put Republican Marsha Blackburn ahead of Democrat Phil Bredesen by a 48-43 percent margin. Blackburn’s 5-point advantage is inside the poll’s margin of error.

“Last month, she had a 3-point edge over Bredesen. They are competing for the seat being vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker.

“Women go for Bredesen by 5 points, while men are more likely to pick Blackburn by 17. Among white men, her lead grows to 30 points.

“Bredesen stays in the game by garnering greater party loyalty (92 percent of Democrats back him compared to 82 percent of GOP for her), while also taking 10 percent of Republicans.

“About the same share of Bredesen (79 percent certain) and Blackburn (77 percent) supporters say they are certain to vote for them.

“Plus, roughly equal numbers have a positive view of both Blackburn (50 favorable vs. 41 unfavorable) and Bredesen (51-39 percent), who served as Tennessee’s governor from 2003 to 2011.

“Governor Pollpourri

“In the Arizona governor’s race, Republican incumbent Doug Ducey leads: 55 percent vs. 37 percent for Democrat David Garcia. One in five of Sinema’s supporters (20 percent) split their ballot and back the Republican, Ducey, for governor.

“By a 17-point margin, Tennessee likely voters back Republican Bill Lee (53 percent) over Democrat Karl Dean (36 percent) in the state’s gubernatorial race. Fourteen percent of those backing Bredesen in the Senate race defect to support Lee, the Republican, for governor.”

As you can see these numbers are still way too close for comfort. And Republicans tend to like to stay home on election day. But if they do get out and vote it will send a clear and loud message to the left to stop shenanigans like what they have been doing to Judge Kavanagh and also to President Trump.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun

Published

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:

Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.

1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.

Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.

Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.

From Fox News:

“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.

“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.

“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.

“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.

Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.

Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.

“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”

“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.

It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
