Trump Drains ‘Blue Wave’ By Winning Every Special Election

Pres. Donald J. Trump plays a big game, succeeds and he likes to talk about it. Why not? After winning the presidency against a seasoned opponent, a biased media that dogged his every word and misled the American public, Pres. Trump deserves his victory lap. These days, his Midas touch in special elections has Democrats reeling as he drains the mythic “Blue Wave.”

Democrats are fast-learning the Trump Train continues to pick up steam and his endorsement of Republican candidates ramps up Republican voter turnout. Pres. Trump is a winner and Americans like winning.

The recent special election win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional Districted pitted Republican Troy Balderson against Danny O’Connor in what looked like a prime opportunity for Democrats to gain a seat.

Liberal political pundits toned down much of their earlier talking points that elections were a “referendum on Trump.” Instead, the fake news media spoke about how Pres. Trump’s MAGA agenda was dragging conservative candidates down. In reality, Balderson was previously on shaky ground with suburban Ohio voters.

That’s why Politico, a left-leaning media outlets that routinely tries to skewer Pres. Trump, pushed propaganda that the president was unpopular in suburbs across the nation.

“Deep suburban antipathy toward President Donald Trump has turned the old GOP electoral coalition inside-out in many areas in 2017 and 2018 — like Ohio’s 12th District, which for two decades sent former Rep. Pat Tiberi to Congress on the back of his popularity in the Columbus suburbs,” Politico states. “His anointed successor, Republican Troy Balderson, took a different path to a small special-election lead, instead building on Trump’s rural strength while Democrat Danny O’Connor cut deeply into Tiberi’s old base.”

The point such editorializing repeatedly tries to make is that Pres. Trump — not necessarily the candidate — lacks popularity with certain voters. Politico would have readers believe that Pres. Trump was the one running for office. Upstarts such as Balderson rarely enjoy the loyalty voting of the mainstays before them and Politico prefers this false apples and oranges comparison.

Politico, like many anti-Trump media outlets, fails to attribute the slim Balderson win to his close alignment to Pres. Trump. But the president was quick to crow about how his endorsement completely shifted the election in Balderson’s favor.

“When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36. That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov,” Pres. Trump tweeted.

This would be the last special election before the November midterms, and Balderson was quick to thank Pres. Trump and Vice Pres. Pence while referencing the MAGA agenda.

“Over the next three months, I’m going to do everything I can to keep America great,” Balderson reportedly said.

GOP campaign consultants such as John Brabender strongly believe that Pres. Trump’s endorsement can energize everyday Americans to vote Republican.

“There are a lot of people out there who are supportive of the president’s agenda, and they’re much more loyal to this president than they are to the Republican Party,” Brabender reportedly said. “The challenge for Republicans between now and November is to harvest the president’s ability to go find voters who have not always a strong affiliation for one party or the other, but do for this president and get them to show up and vote Republican.”

Pres. Trump has gone six for six in special elections. That perfect record means his endorsement remains political gold heading into the midterms. While the party not holding the White House generally enjoys significant gains in these elections, liberal pundits remain eerily quiet on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement.

Consider that Pelosi has been 0-6 in special election endorsements. When upstart Rep. Conor Lamb upset a Republican in Pennsylvania, he literally ran an anti-Pelosi campaign.

Promising moderate voters in the state’s 18th Congressional District that he would oppose the radical policies of Pelosi provided the former Marine with an upset victory over a non-Trump endorsed candidate. These outcomes seem to beg the question few are asking: Are these special elections a referendum on Pelosi?

The political tides are fast-shifting in Washington, D.C., and a “Blue Ripple” could wash Pelosi out to sea. Upwards of 50 Democrats are lining up to oust the Pelosi from her leadership role and at least two will vote in favor of Pres. Trump’s proposed border wall. The “resist” and “obstruct” policies have diminished Democrats with moderate voters as MAGA ramps up the U.S. economy.

The president remains undefeated in special elections, and his endorsement could very well drain the imagined Blue Wave come November.

  1. President Trump did more for America and the American people in one year than the previous three presidents did in 24 years!
    Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS! President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world!
    Keep America Great! Greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!
    Actions speak louder than words and President Trump’s actions speaks volumes for America and the American people!

    Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him!
    President Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!
    Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election with the help of then President Obama, the DOJ (Loretta Lynch) and the FBI (James Comey) couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? He won’t be stopped! Trump/Pence 2020!

  2. the only blue wave i can foresee, it a wave of blue tears as the little snowflakes lose even more MASSIVELY again in November

  3. I like the way Trump thinks. He won the election for president and now he is picking candidates and helping them win. He knows he has to overtake the senate and the house with conservatives to make America great again. The ones in office now are sadly deficient and obstructing everything including the rinos in the GOP. Go Trump. Turn the wave of the dem wits into a turn for the conservatives and lets get this show on the road for real. When you have enough good patriots in the congress then progress will begin in earnest.

    Dem wits, meet your new reality, MAGA at every opportunity!
