Suddenly, he is up on that stage, saying every ugly thing he could say, and it emboldened them to come out of their closets.
Indeed, he (and some of his advisors) saw how to harness anger and hatred and weaponize it. They managed to convince so many in the rust belt that Trump was one of them. AS IF. Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, was handed millions by his father, helped foreign manufacturers by purchasing their products, lives/lived in a gold encrusted penthouse, defrauded thousands of people, declared bankruptcy more than once, and they actually think he cares about them because he said so. A reality TV shill is who people thought was going to help them. He tells them they're better off and they believe him, without any question.

Uh, NH has been Republican....like forever. My friends up there were "Bush" Republicans....very liberal types, but old school WASP GOP.

This harkens back from the days when Norther Liberals (Radicals) were Republican....that has changed somewhat over the years, but NH is still where the "Free State Project" and other "libertarians" were going to go and take over the politics.

That said - Trump is behind in NH compared to most Dem candidates:

In fact, he's 10 points behind BERNIE.

One can usually take Waldo posts and figure the opposite is more accurate...at least historically. Maybe his record will improve this cycle. We'll see.

The leftists and crooked MSM have tried every trick in the book to smear Trump yet he remains as popular as ever. What is the Democrat plan to counter that? Keep Joe Biden in hiding.
Trump had an enthusiastic, packed rally in a well educated "blue" coastal state and the left particularly hates that. They didn't show the lines of people wrapped around the street who could not get in.

For those who didn't want to show support for the president in NH, there was the Biden rally just down the street at the same time. Biden wasn't there mind you. Just his NH Campaign Director, some pizzas and 30 supporters. So if you supported Biden - or were hungry and in the mood for pizza - there was another option.

The "left" does not use Reality TV as metric for real life.....

Simple yes or no will do. ARE YOU telling us that you believe there are no Nazi's in Texas? (Again, a demonstration of gaslighting on your part. Your passive agressive swipes are an attempt to discredit the person you are quoting. You make it sound as if you believe there are no Nazi's in Texas. FOR THE RECORD: I am saying that I believe, with confidence, there are.)

Two rallies in New Hampshire.
  • Donald Trump - 15,000 attended, few 1000 more couldn't get in.
  • Joe Biden - 30 people. Some for free pizza.
Pollsters - Biden has a huge lead over Trump. Democrats - New Hampshire doesn't matter.



hahahaha

What these traitorous leftists donít understand is Trump is winning because America is terrified and disgusted with the leftists themselves. The idea that socialism could come to America is unthinkable for most of us. The constant attacks on men, white people and general SJW political correctness is hated beyond their understanding. Trump is not a good man, nor do most people like his rants. However he is at least friendly to capitalism and our basic rights outlined in the constitution. The thought of some left wing loon redistributing the hard earned wealth of Americans and taking away or limiting free speech and gun rights is not something any true American would find acceptable. The level of hate and division in America is at potential civil war levels, all of it causes by unprecedented demands of the far left.

Trump will win in 20 and he will have the radical left to thank for it. Of course this nation is headed for the cliff no matter what, we are no longer a united nation anyway. If we were smart we would begin planning a peaceful division of the Union before it gets bloody.

its not necessarily about people loving him. I have a number of friends and family that reluctantly voted for Trump and really were willing to vote for someone else out of a dislike of his personality. But the endless attacks on him have pushed some of these people to tell me they are now absolutely voting for Trump because they are disgusted with it all.

Perhaps it is part of the American psych or just general human nature but we tend to admire and support someone if they are constantly attacked but refuse to surrender. Remember the Rocky movie where he goes to Russia and gains the support of the crowd at the end because of his refusal to quit. Its this kind of thing for Trump. Of course I just compared a Rocky movie which took place in Russia to Trump. Sure sign of Russian collusion if CNN saw this

Careful.....the leftists will now believe your an agent of Putin. Heck if a Republican has a drink of Vodka he is a Russian agent these days according to these leftists.
