Beltway Republicans continue to influence nobody.

Over the past 48 hours, influential Republicans have greeted the latest batch of lewd, misogynistic remarks from their party’s standard-bearer, Donald Trump, with a mixture of belated revulsion and resistance, prompting withdrawals of support and renewed calls for him to quit the presidential race. However, it would appear that rank-and-file GOP voters are, once again, rejecting these calls from their party’s elites, and are prepared to stick by Trump’s side, at least for now.

Those are the findings of the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, the first of its kind to attempt to gauge the public impact of Trump’s now-infamous commentary about women with Billy Bush, who was then at “Access Hollywood.” This new poll found that while nearly three-quarters of all respondents had a negative reaction to hearing these remarks, there was a distinctly “partisan element” to the respondents’ reactions.

According to Politico, after watching a video of Trump’s remarks, “10 percent of Republicans said the video gave them a positive feeling,” while only 22 percent of GOP respondents rated the video a “zero (very negative).” In terms of favorability, “just 48 percent of GOP voters said it makes them feel less favorably toward Trump, while 36 percent said it doesn’t affect their opinions.”

Clinton’s foolish attempt to destroy Trump is backfiring with new media focused on Hillary’s enabling rapist bill and Hillary attacking women victims

It’s Trump, or civil war and mass death. Get real, people. All politicians are scum. Bill Clinton did worse with every little girl on Epstein’s plane, and Hillary covered up every one of Bill’s rapes.

Not sure if I belive that.

No matter what happens to Trump, the GOPe is dead. They will never recover from sabotaging their own nominee.

I’ve said all along that this would actually help him with a certain kind of voter. Think about it. This makes him seem more “real” like a person they know.

It is transparently clear that this was a pre-planned anti-nationalist inspired hit job that the GOPe traitors participated in, planned and helped execute for Hillary who they intend to elect.

The Bush family was also involved and the guy who recorded the conversation 11 years ago was a Bush family member.

I know that you knew that. But it bears repeating.

Stick a fork in the beltway republicans and pundits. Tney are way past their use by date. Throw them and their bs into a dumpster trash can and keep on trucking for Trump!
