Truth Zone: Quinnipiac Poll
What Americans really want in a candidate is patriotism, solution to America’s problems
“We Need A Leader Willing To Say Or Do Anything To Solve America’s Problems.”
Washington should “realize there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the last two weeks, Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st century: nationalism. Transnationalism and globalism are moribund. First among the issues on which Trump has triumphed — ‘We will build the wall – and Mexico will pay for it!’ — is border security. Republican candidates who failed to parrot Trump on illegal immigration were among the first casualties,” in the primaries. “For that is where America is, and that is where the West is.” ~Pat Buchanan
Whoever the Republican nominee is, he will be more patriotic and better for the country than anyone the Left has to offer. If your preferred candidate does not get the nomination, PLEASE do not stay home. If you don’t vote, then you will be accountable for the tyranny of the Left. If the destruction of the Democrat party is not stopped, then it is over for America. You don’t want to be responsible for that. It may be a risk, but it’s a risk we must take, and unite behind that person, or there might not be another election. ~C.D.
Quinnipiac… What are the numbers here of people actually talked to? It was conducted March 16 through 21, margin of error +/- 2.5% Quinnipiac University poll director Douglas Schwartz. It doesn’t give us a number of participants that I see here, but there has to be a number. We’ll find it. But, anyway, here you go again.
They asked people for their opinions on the following premises.
Premise number one: “America has lost its identity.” Fifty-seven percent strongly agree or somewhat agree; 43% disagree that America has lost its identity, 79% of Republicans agree, 85% of Trump supporters agree.
The next premise: “Beliefs and values: American beliefs and values are under attack.”
Sixty-two percent of everybody agrees, 91% of Trump supporters agree, 85% of Republicans agree, 40% of Democrats agree.
What you’re gonna find here is the Democrats are hunky-dory with everything going on here. Very few of them have a problem with what’s going on. And on the Republican side it’s a massive number of people that disagree.
Next premise: “We Need A Leader Willing To Say Or Do Anything To Solve America’s Problems.” Fifty-three percent of all voters agree. Eighty-six percent of Republicans agree, 84% of Trump supporters agree.
“The Old Way Of Doing Things No Longer Works And We Need Radical Change.” Sixty-four percent of all voters agree, even 58% of Democrats. Seventy-one percent of Republicans agree. Eighty-three percent of Trump supporters agree.
“Public Officials Don’t Care Much What People Like Me Think,” is the next premise. Seventy-six percent of all voters agree. Even 68% of Democrats do. Eighty-four percent of all Republicans and 90% of Trump supporters agree that public officials don’t care much what people like me think.
Next premise: “Leaders Don’t Worry About What Other People Say; They Follow Their Own Path.” Fifty-six percent agree; 65% of all Republicans, 74% of all Trump supporters.
“I’m Falling Further And Further Behind Economically,” is the next premise. Fifty-seven percent all voters agree, 76% of Republicans, 78% of Trump supporters.
Pat Buchanan has a column today: “What Trump Has Wrought.” I’ll give you some highlights. “As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State bashing for Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination. Should The Donald fall short of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude that he will be stopped. First by Ted Cruz; then, perhaps, by someone acceptable to the establishment, which always likes to have two of its own in the race.
“But this city of self-delusion,” meaning Washington, “should realize there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the last two weeks, Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st century: nationalism. Transnationalism and globalism are moribund. First among the issues on which Trump has triumphed — ‘We will build the wall – and Mexico will pay for it!’ — is border security. Republican candidates who failed to parrot Trump on illegal immigration were among the first casualties,” in the primaries. “For that is where America is, and that is where the West is.
“Consider Europe.” Listen to these next paragraphs here, folks. They’re short. “Consider Europe. Four months ago, Angela Merkel was Time’s Person of the Year for throwing open the gates to the ‘huddled masses’ of the Middle and Near East. Merkel’s Germany is now leading the EU in amassing a huge bribe to the Turks to please take them back, and keep them away from the Greek islands that are now Islam’s Ellis Island into Europe.”
He’s right about that. Angela Merkel, TIME Magazine’s Woman of the Year, she opened the gates, lets everybody in, bragging, 800,000 a year, labor force. Now she doesn’t want any more in and is begging people to take ’em back.
“Africa’s population will double to 2.5 billion by 2050. With 60 percent of Africans now under 25 years of age, millions will find their way to the Med to cross to the Old Continent where Europeans are aging, shrinking and dying. Look for gunboats in the Med. If immigration is the first issue where Trump connected with the people, the second is trade.”
He goes on, too. His point is that no matter what happens, Trump loses, that the genie is out of the bottle and we’re not going back. America will not go back to an establishment-run country that continues to deteriorate, lose its exceptionalism, and become just one of many global nations that is mediocre on its best day. He said that’s over with.
And I don’t know about that. I don’t think the establishment’s gonna give up, and I don’t think the establishment cares about public opinion. And if the establishment can beat back candidates that represent all of this change, they will have stopped it. If people say, “Fine, I’m not voting,” the establishment will be fine with people not voting if their candidates win.
And, folks, don’t forget something else. Conservatism is not a monolith. Liberalism is, in a way. Conservatism isn’t. I beg you to recall my opening monologue today. There’s many in the so-called conservative movement who would not mind at all the establishment maintaining control of it. They wouldn’t even mind Hillary Clinton being elected. It would give them a sense of purpose to fundraise, to promise people they would stop what’s happening.
