He's not a standard bearer. He's the worst that one can get within the GOP. His associations with white supremacists and his incendiary remarks about Blacks and Hispanics are big issues for me. I can't trust someone like that with political office, especially in a Vice President role. I'm looking out for myself in this case.

7 years ago, Steve King said that he never heard of anyone getting pregnant through statutory rape. King has a history of being stupid.

And if so, you shouldn't be surprised why an overwhelmingly large majority of African Americans don't vote for the GOP.

I am surprised Trump hasn't nominated this guy to become Circuit Court Judge.

Elections have consequences and those who still haven't registered to vote in 2020 shouldn't be surprised at the results when they sit home and watch TV

White nationalism is morally CORRECT. If you oppose white nationalism, you support genocide, because that's all white nationalism is: the desire to find an alternative to the white race being genocided.

Blacks don't vote for the GOP because most black voters are voting to take money from the people who vote for the GOP. How could a grown-up not grasp this obvious fact?

The national GOP, who used to support him, sensed that he was becoming a political liability, and pulled his assignments from House congressional committees. So he's been defanged somewhat.
The only reason he's getting fewer votes, is from the redistricting back in 2014 when Iowa lost one congressional seat. King's old district used to be Western Iowa only, but they took away the south half of Western Iowa and lumped them in with Des Moines, which nullified the conservative vote in those counties. In fact, every single county but for Polk (Des Moines), voted for the republican candidate in this last election, but the democratic candidate won.

They took away Counsel Bluffs from King, and gave him Ames and Mason City instead. That was a major shift in his district, as Ames is a college town and MUCH more liberal than Counsel Bluffs. His new district is extraordinary difficult to cover effectively with TV spots because it's not just Omaha/Sioux City anymore, now it's part of the Des Moines and Mason City markets, which is almost like trying to campaign on Mars, for Steve King. His people are in Western Iowa, not Ames, and I think the redistricting back in 2014 was a cheap shot against the people of Western Iowa, and against King, to get rid of him, because they couldn't do it any other way. And it's working, and he will be gone in this next election, and SW Iowa must continue to swallow any turd that Des Moines wants to cram down their throat.

Why keep Steve King? He understands illegal immigration is a problem, and has been fighting to stop the flow of drugs across the border, such as the heroin which has killed 50K kids a year for the last 5 years or so. He has served on the national security committee and has been a good watchdog for the conservatives, to a degree that surpasses what anyone who might replace him, would do. He works, he makes the effort, he fights back and altho sometimes makes some remarks that sometimes don't make a lot of sense, he works against the push for socialism and the flood of immigrants, legal or not, whom have been bought and paid for by the democrats. As the man said, you can't preserve your culture with someone else's babies. Once the demographic flip happens, the media has virtually ensured whites will catch hell in all areas, revenge mobs like BLM times 100, much higher taxes across the board, school redistricting, reduction of the freedom of speech and assembly, gutting the police and military. It doesn't take a lot of imagination after seeing how people behaved under Obama, that mob rule is just around the corner as soon as their guy/gal gets into office again.

Some people will just claim "Blacks just want free stuff".

Redistricting was done in 2012 following the 2010 Census, not 2014. King has had four elections in the current district so it isn't like it is new.
