During last year’s Republican presidential primary campaign the RNC called me once or twice a week begging for money. I refused, based upon the fact that my candidate of choice, Donald Trump, was given no respect by the Republican Party. That is about the same time the “Washington establishment” emerged from the shadows into the light of day, and shockingly, half of the Trump-hating establishment was and is Republican. It wasn’t only Clintons, Obamas, Pelosis, and Schumers. There was a boatload of Republicans in that swamp too.
Then, when Trump secured the nomination, the calls from the RNC increased in frequency and intensity, the telemarketer on the other end of the phone always pleading that we have to donate to the RNC to get Donald Trump elected. I still refused, citing the abhorrent treatment of Trump by RINOs like Paul Ryan, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, et al. Instead, I sent every dime I could afford directly to the Trump campaign on a regular basis, once a month by automatic debit from my bank account, and even more here and there as I could afford it.
Since his election, President Trump has done a commendable job of implementing his agenda, which is the agenda of We the People, notwithstanding the efforts on both sides of the aisle to obstruct the president’s progress every step of the way, especially in the Senate, where the Republican majority, which should be putting President Trump’s agenda into law, is nullified by a handful of RINO senators, keeping key legislation, like the full repeal of Obamacare, from happening.
Now their chickens are coming home to roost. We reported last month that syphilis is more popular in Arizona than Jeff Flake, who is polling at 18% favorability in his home state. Geezerly contrarian and career traitor John McCain, Arizona’s other RINO contribution to the Senate, shares the basement in the popularity department. There is a price to pay for being duplicitous ! Check out the chart, below.
You can now add Paul Ryan’s name to the list of congressional Republicans less popular than a sexually transmitted disease.
To no one’s surprise, a just-released NBC News poll reveals that feckless Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has succeeded in becoming just as unpopular as his polarizing predecessor, San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi.
The Survey/Monkey poll shows that 30% of those surveyed view Pelosi favorably, a statistical tie with Paul Ryan’s 31%. The two are also tied up in the unfavorable department, with 64% holding an unfavorable view of Pelosi, compared to 63% for Ryan.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in even worse shape. A Harvard-Harris poll released last week showed the Kentucky Republican with a dismal approval rating of just 19%, the lowest of any politician in the country. In this same poll, Ryan’s favorable rating is 33%, which is in line with the NBC poll.
Meanwhile, President Trump’s approval rating sits at 39%, which is not great but is still better than his congressional counterparts, who are not the focus of a 24/7 hate campaign from our national media.
