Trump’s Internal Polls Were Spot On

By Adam Geller

adam-gellerI want to give a gentle pushback against the narrative that “all the polls were wrong” on the Presidential race. Many of them were wrong. Maybe most of them were. But the internal polls for the campaign were spot on.

You may recall that the pundits laughed when Kellyanne mentioned that we spotted a fairly large hidden Trump vote, or as she called them, “undercover Trump voters.” Our polling always showed these folks in fairly large numbers. And they fell off of their chairs on their bright shiny studio sets when we started actively campaigning in states like Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania. But again, the polling provided evidence that there were cracks in that big blue wall. And we listened to the polls, and trusted them.

“Forgive Trump” Signs Stolen in Manalapan

forgive-trump-800x784Custom made signs urging voters to support Donald Trump for President were vandalized and then stolen last week from the Yorktowne Center shopping plaza in Manalapan, according to Michael Dalton, the owner of the plaza.

Dalton said he installed two signs, one 4×6 and one 4×8 on his property encouraging visitors and drivers passing the plaza to forgive the GOP presidential nominee for his vulgar language and to disregard media reports that denigrate the candidate and suggest that he is losing the election.

“Don’t believe the media they are BAD,” the signs declared.

Musings of a Values Voter, 2016

It is our character that supports the promise of our future – far more than particular government programs or policies.  – William Bennett

Tommy DeSeno1By Tommy DeSeno

There were those of us, the values voters, who stood by stunned when the bar for personal conduct, vulgarity, sexual assault, law and American values was lowered by those who refused to remove Bill Clinton from office in 1998. We were told we were prudish, imposing religious values and should mind our own business by staying out of Clinton’s “private life.” That side won the culture war. My side lost the culture war. They may now reap what they have sown, and what they have sown is an acceptance of Donald Trump. This linguistic monster, whose polyglot range is a very limited dirty to deriding, was created by those who stood with Bill Clinton, who made the coarsening of American discourse official.  They’ll never admit it. The left is married only to the moment with no view of history or legacy.
