The union bosses who are hell-bent on electing Democrats are not gonna like this poll! Of course, we all know, the union bosses are not always looking out for the best interests of the workers anyhow. We’re not fans of Michael Moore, but boy, did he knock it out of the park the other day when he implored a large crowd to vote for the only candidate who is capable of putting Americans back to work. The video can be seen HERE. Blue collar workers, including steel, coal and automotive workers are sick and tired of watching their jobs being shipped overseas. They want a leader who is serious about saving manufacturing in America and keeping our jobs here. It really shouldn’t surprise anyone that blue-collar workers across America find Donald Trump’s message of saving American jobs appealing…
A poll released today gives insight into the “Monster Vote”. It is a congressional poll that shows a small edge for a Republican running for the House of Representatives against a Democrat incumbent in Minnesota’s 8th district.
“Trump has a healthy lead over Hillary Clinton,” Schier told 5 Eyewitness News after reviewing our 8th District poll. “It’s probably the foreign trade issues. It’s probably his economic nationalism. His desire to bring jobs back to places that have lost jobs.”
The evidence in the poll for the monster vote is found by linking the poll data with some historical information. The polls headline is that the Republican is winning by 4 points, but reading into the article (http://kstp.com/politics/stewart-mills-rick-nolan-8th-congressional-race-kstp-survey-usa-poll/4299301/) you find some good nuggets of information, three big factors:
Trump is beating Hillary by 12 points: “Our poll shows Republican Donald Trump with a 12-point lead over Clinton, 47 percent to 35 percent“
Trump is winning with women: “leading Clinton 41 percent to 39 percent.”
Dems are crossing over: “the number of Democrats dropped from 34 percent in 2014 to 27 percent in 2016. The number of independents jumped from 31 percent two years ago to 41 percent this year.“
You may say, this is one congressional district and it does not represent the whole country. Right it does not, but it does represent old fashion Democrats. Democrats who do not really support the party’s position on social issues, but have traditionally voted for Democrats because they believed the Democrat was for the “worker”.
This district could be a microcosm of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa.
According to Wikipedia, Minnesota’s 8th district has voted Democrat for the past 4 presidential elections, so why would it be polling +12 for Trump??? – Whatthedatasays
