Trump underperforming in St. Louis suburbs

According to the Cook Political Report, President Trump is significantly underperforming in Missouri’s second congressional district compared to 2016. This is the district represented by Ann Wagner, Republican. Trump is running over 10 points behind his results in the 2016 election when he carried the district. This is great news for Wagner’s challenger, Jill Schupp. Written by Paul Dribin

Trump and Republicans

It is a common argument for many traditional Republicans to argue that Donald Trump is an aberration from their traditional views. But let’s take a look. Since Nixon, the party has played up racism among white voters, particularly in the south, cut taxes for the wealthy, been anti science in denying the existence of climate change, was opposed to abortion rights, and pandered to right wind religious bigots. Trump of course has advocated all these things on steroids. But the reason he is still supported by the Republican masses despite his instance behavior is that his views are in agreement with those of the Republican Party. Written by Paul Dribin
