Time to Regroup? Trump support crumbles in Rust Belt swing states

by S.A. Miller - The Washington Times  |  published on August 5, 2016


ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. — Donald Trump is blowing his chance to remake the political map, having squandered leads in this key swing state and slumped in the other Rust Belt states he promised he would swing Republican.

Nowhere is that more obvious than in Pennsylvania, which the billionaire businessman vowed to put into play this year but where voters are recoiling from the man and his mouth.

“I was all for Trump at first, but the things he says, the look on his face — I can’t trust him to have his finger on the [nuclear] button,” said Sam Hess, 74, a registered Republican who, despite strongly agreeing with Mr. Trump on immigration and guns, decided he couldn’t vote for him.

“He doesn’t think. He just says something off the top of his head,” said Mr. Hess. “That’s why he doesn’t get very good press right now.”

Voters across the country are apparently saying the same thing.

    Lock and load. The revolution is here and now.

    I am a PA voter and Trump will surely get my vote. I cannot believe the stupidity of these voters that think they can vote against Trump in 2016, let Hitlerly win, and think there will be something left for the future. Democraps will be pick a sickly bunch of retards for the Supreme Court, and the republicans will never be able to fight off communism in the U.S. They don’t know of anything but a collectivist society, and will wipe out the middle class for good. If Trump should win, and do a terrible job, there will be no problem to impeach him, and pick someone better. At least, the republicans can stack the Supreme Court, and we will have some sanity for the next forty years!

    Oh for heaven’s sake, Trump isn’t getting good press because the press is pro Hillary. How come the press only covers a planned payment to Iran by Obama who says it wasn’t paying for hostages but money owed Iran and there is millions more still to go to them and the press covers it for three nights if you’re lucky and drops it but they will go over and over a sentence Trump said which isn’t illegal by the way and the press puts their interpretation into what Trump said for a month and still keeps going back to it as if his sentence or their interpretation of it is on the level of 9/11 . These people saying they are republicans and won’t vote for Trump are democrats or rino followers, rinos–republicans who are secret democrat voters in congress. They are for the establishment politicians who vote with the democrats and helped get this country into the downfall it is in. Gees.

  • Bull the press will be against him no matter what Trump says or how he says it. Rockefeller dictat!

  • juniemoon

    I’m still voting for Trump no matter what mistakes he makes. I don’t fall apart when the LSM blows Trump’s gaffes out of proportion. As Clint Eastwood says, get over it.

    Watched Trump’s rally in Green Bay, WI. It was excruciating to hear Trump endorse RINOs McCain, Ryan, and Ayotte. None of them deserved his endorsement. I suspect Trump’s heart was not in it when he had to utter those words. I’m hoping Paul Nehlen and Kelli Ward win, despite Trump’s half-hearted endorsement of three ungrateful, insulting RINOs.

    I sure don’t know who you all talk too but I am from your so called “rusty” Pennsylvania and nothing has changed around me. I sure am sorry that one old fearful coot decided not to vote but Donald still trumps a mega liar. So who is it going to be?

  • Donnie Buchanan

    The media does a ‘pick and choose’ type of reporting. Like the fuss over the muslim Kahn at the DNC vs. the Benghazi mothers. They chose to try to destroy Trump over his comments about Kahn, but uphold Killery in lying while at the coffin of those who died at Benghazi. If it was only one or two media outlets, the fight could be won, but it is most all against Trump and a hard battle.

    • cutterguy

      how about the mothers of the little darlings killed by mean old police because they wee breaking laws who were at the dnc but no cops?

  • Ted Crawford

    “Regroup”?? To what end?
    We are just seeing the opening phases of Trumps well planned Exit Strategy! He needs to give Steven Mnuchin enough time to generate Trumps Return On Investment for the money he spent to buy the Nomination! As soon as that’s accomplished, we’ll see the strategy kick into high gear! Trump has NO intention of becoming President! Article II is far too restrictive for a narcissist like Trump!

  • fedup

    The choice is simple, Clinton machine or Trump. We know what Clinton is. We know what Trump is. I’ll take almost (short of another obozo) anyone over Hellery. Go Trump! Vote for Trump instead of that lying BITCH.

  • ALL MEDIA IS AGAINST TRUMP

    THE RINOS HAVE JOINED THE COMMOS TO STOP EL TRUMPO. IF TRUMP WINS BRIBE MONEY DRIES UP. THE DRUG FLOW DRIES UP. TAXES GO DOWN. WASTE GOES WAY DOWN. AL QUEDA SHRINKS. YOU CAN SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS AGAIN.

    THE POLLS ARE RIGGED AND MY BIGGEST FEAR IS THE ELECTION MAY BE RIGGED AND THE POLLS WILL CONVINCE THE DUPEES THAT TRUMP NEVER HAD A CHANCE.

    WHEN YOU GET TO THE TOP IT IS ALL THE SAME PEOPLE. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BUSH’S AND THE CLINTO’NS. THEY EVEN CALL BILL THEIR BROTHER. WHEN I SAW GEORGE THE ELDER AT A TRUMP DEBATE DRAGGING HIS FINGER ACROSS HIS THROAT AND LAUGHING I SAID TRUMP IS UP AGAINST MORE THAN WE REALIZE.

    TRUMP HAS A FAITHFUL FOLLOWING. WE HAVE TO HELP GET THE WORD OUT. BEWARE OF SO CALLED FRIENDLY’S WHO SAY IF HE ONLY DID THIS AND HE ONLY DID THAT AND HE LIED TO THE PEOPLE LIKE THE COMMUNISTS DO. IF HE WAS MORE LIKE US HE WOULD WIN.

    NOT TRUE. HITLERY WILL ENTER THE BATTLEFIELD ONLY IF HER FRONT LINE IS DECIMATED. 285 DAYS AND NO DEBATE TELL YOU EVERYTHING. THE ENTIRE NEWS MEDIA IS THE PRAVDA OF THE PARTY OF DEATH.

    I WAS WATCHING EISENHOWER’S TOUR OF THE NAZI DEATH CAMPS. AT ONE POINT HE FORCED ALL THE VILLAGERS NEARBYE TO WALK THROUGH THOSE DEATH CHAMBERS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING. IF WE WALKED THROUGH THE DEMOCRAT CHOP SHOPS WHERE BABY BRAINS SELL FOR $3400.00 WE WOULD NOT SLEEP TONIGHT. DR MENGELE EXPERIMENTED WITH BLUE EYED BABIES. DO BLUE EYES COST MORE THAN BROWN AT PLANNED SLAUGHTERHOOD?

    THE PROBLEM IS NOT EL TRUMPO. THE PROBLEM IS THE HOUSE, SENATE AND THE PRESIDENCY. LIKE A BAD CROP. ALL HAS TO BE ROTATED. AMERICA WOULD BE SAFER WITH ONE TERM PER TERMITE. iNSTEAD OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE VOTERS THESE PIRATES ARE LOYAL ONLY TO EACH OTHER. IF TRUMP LOSES IT WILL NOT BE THE FAULT OF THE COMMUNIST LIEING MEDIA FROM PORNWOWOOD TO FIX NEWS. IT WILL BE THE HANG LOW DO NOTHING REPUPPY PARTY. FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS ARE OUR BIGGEST ENEMY.

    THE COMMIUNISTS WHO GAVE US DEFEAT IN NAM FROM CHICAGO, NEW YORK AND SAN FRANCISCO ARE STILL HERE. THEY ARE STRONGER THAN THE 60’S BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE COMMUNISTS LIKE BILL AYERS THE ADVISOR TO THE 8 YEAR MISTAKE TEACHING IN A UNIVERSITY AS A PROFESSOR. YOU KNOW ALL COLLEGES ARE BRAINWASHING PITS. THE HARVARD REPUBLICAN CLUB WILL NOT ENDORSE A CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT. THE FIRST TIME IN 118 YEARS. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU? TWO GROUPS I NEVER TRUST. HARVARD GRADUATES AND GOLDMAN SACHS EXECUTIVES.

    BILL AYERS HAS SAID THAT 20% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NEVER SURRENDER TO HIS GAME PLAN. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE LIQUIDATED. THAT IS A COMMUNIST TALKING FOLKS. LIQUIDATION IS A COMMUNIST TOOL. IRONICALLY IT WAS 20% OF AMERICANS WHO WON THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 80% WATCHED.

    IT IS A DEMO COMMO TACTIC TO CALL AN ELECTION WIN BEFORE THE ELECTION IS OVER. THEY DID IT ON THE WEST COAST AND THE WEST COAST HAD NOT VOTED YET. THEY DID IT IN THE FLORIDA PAN HANDLE AND THEY HADN’T VOTED YEST. REMEMBER ALL MEDIA IS IN THE BAG FOR THE PARTY OF DEATH. TRUMP GETS US BACK TO WORK WITH MORE MONEY FROM LESS TAXES. TRUMP WILL REBUILD THE MILITARY OBAMA BIN LADEN HAS DESTROYED. BEWARE OF ANY FOOL WHO SAYS WE ARE THE STRONGEST NATION ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. WE SPEND 3% OF GDP TO BUILD OUR MILITARY. CHINA SPENDS 17% AND ALL THAT MONEY COMES FROM US WHEN WE BUY CHINESE.

    THE COMMUNISTS ARE CALLING FOR AN INTERVENTION AND WANT TRUMP TO BE GIVEN A PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION. THAT IS OUT OF THE KREMLIN RULES. IF A RUSSIAN REFUSED TO JOIN THE MILITARY THEY ARE SENT TO AN INSANE ASYLUM FOR REHAB. YET NO ONE IS GIVING HITLERY A LIE DETECTOR TEST OR A STRESS TEST.

    TRUMP HAS FLUSHED OUT ALL THE EVIL DOERS AND LIARS FROM BOTH PARTIES.

    IF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT FROM THE PULPIT BECAUSE THEY WILL LOSE TAX EXEMPT STATUS. WE ARE NOT LIVING IN FREEDOM.

    WHEN GEORGE BUSH CAN ALLOW TWO BORDER PATROL AGENTS WHO CAPTURED A DRUG RUNNER CROSSING INTO THE USA TO BE TRIED AND SENTENCED TO SEND WHAT MESSAGE? RAMOS AND COMPEAN WERE THEIR NAMES. THEIR WIVES HAD TO SELL THEIR HOMES TO PAY LEGAL FEES. THEN THE TWO AMERICANS WERE PUT INTO THE GENERAL PRISON POPULATION WITH DEATH SENTENCES ON THEIR HEADS. WE ARE NOT LIVING IN FREEDOM.

    WHEN THE MILITARY AND THE POLICE ARE PORTRAYED AS THE ENEMY BY THE COMMUNISTS. WE ARE NOT LIVING IN FREEDOM.

    IF AMERICAN HISTORY IS NOT TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS. WE ARE NOT LIVING IN FREEDOM.

    IF THERE IS NO CHECK A BOX ON THE GOVERNMENT FORM FOR YOU. WE ARE NOT LIVING IN FREEDOM.

    IF SOME ONE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY GUNS FROM LAW ABIDING CITIZENS. THEY INTEND TO KILL YOU.

    IF ANYONE TAKES AWAY YOUR AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY THEY INTEND TO KILL YOU.

    IF ANYONE TELLS YOU EUROPE HAS A BETTER WAY. LET THEM GO THERE.

    THE THREE BIGGEST LIES IN THE WORLD ARE. 1-THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL. 2-I NEVER VOTED FOR OBAMA. 3-I’M PROUD I’M A DEMOCRAT.

    AS TOM PAINE SAID THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MEN’S SOULS. IF YOU CAN’T STAND WITH TRUMP NOW TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. SURELY YOU WILL KNEEL TO OUR CONQUERORS. REST ASSURED YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO LIVE HERE. THERE IS A GULAG WITH YOUR NAME ON IT. AMERICAN….YOU WILL DIE AS AN AMERICAN.
