CNN releases report about Democrats becoming Trump supporters that Trump is gonna LOVE LOVE LOVE

CNN has a new report out tonight about blue collar mining workers in Minnesota, a state Trump barely lost in 2016, who used to vote Democratic but now are big Trump supporters:

Knowing Trump, he’ll have this CNN report posted first thing in the morning. It’s right up his alley.

The report starts out with the mayor of Eveleth saying that thousands of people are switching from being staunch Democrats to support Trump, because he supports mining. They mine a mineral used in the creation of steel.

One man in the town says that Democrats have moved far left and Republicans have become much more about the worker. Some of them still vote Democrat for local elections, but they’ll be voting for Trump in 2020. And who knows, it might be enough to push the state in the red for Trump.

Watch the report for more…

I’m gonna make this an open thread, but instead of posting a Dodo video, I’ve got something a little different for ya:

  1. Really surprised about Mike Lee getting in cahoots with Kamala Harris, of all people, to reward Indian college graduates for taking U.S. college-level jobs at low wages from young American graduates. Sounds like he’s waded into the swamp.

    Fortunately, this green-card giveaway was temporarily blocked in the U.S. Senate by Sen. David Perdue (R-GA)

    1. I work in a software startup. Most employees are Americans, but we have many Russians and Indians in the office, and Russians and Indians offshore. If the law changes, our company will simply increase the number of offshore hires, or move a branch of the company overseas.

  2. I find it disturbing that any American would vote for the current crop of Socialists running for office today. How anyone is in favor of someone taking their money, killing their babies, destroying their jobs, and letting in foreigners carte blanche is beyond me.

  3. I. Am. In. Shock.
    A CNN report on Trump support – without contempt for either Trump or the supporters.
    Color me astounded.
    What happened??

      1. No, I think they are getting tired of being hit at like one of those pop-up inflatable clowns. This isn’t just a coincidence – the media doesn’t work that way.

  4. Funny how those who once considered themselves Democrats are now considering voting for Trump. Meanwhile, we have so-called “conservatives” on this site who are obsessed with nothing but hatred for the man and can’t bring themselves to vote for him. Sad ….

  5. Whenever people “leave the plantation” for selfish reasons, I’m always a bit skeptical. They are with him because he supports mining. Not because the dems are molesting the constitution. Not because they want to impliment a social credit program similar to China. Not because they want to take away the 2nd ammendment, so they can work on the 1st next. Nope. Because of mining. People who jump the fence for such easy reasons, will jump right back as soon as things don’t go their way. I.E. Andrew Sullivan and gay marriage during the Bush administration.

    1. You may be right Chow, but a vote is a vote and winning Minnesota could be huge toward Trump’s reelection bid.

      1. Believe me, I get it. I just don’t get overly excited on people changing their minds on a whim. And remember, some of these people are the same sons of b*tches who would applaud the govt. running over you with a tank because you didn’t give them your AR-15. Lay down with dogs….

  6. Haha, Ilhan Omar is a “controversial person” in Minnesota? Maybe they’ll kick her annoying @ss out of office.

      1. More likely Omar being a big supporter of the New Green Deal with mining there making a rebound. People like having jobs and vote with their wallets. However, her Muslim supporters might take issue her not following Sharia law?

        1. Unfortunately, her district is urban and a Somali enclave. I’m afraid they’ll keep voting for her or others like her. I pray that we are rid of her in 2020, but I just don’t know.

  7. Damn,if Bryson Gray tells me to vote for Trump and as mean as he looks wearing that big a,, Cowboy Hat,I’m voting for Trump.

  8. I really like this, except for the part about down ballot votes. Unless your local democrats have come out against the radical policies then as far as I’m concerned they agree with them.

    1. We’re working on that. West Virginia is now electing Republicans downballot for the first time in decades, after starting to go for the GOP in Presidential elections in 2000.

  9. Race hustler Al Sharpton got slapped down at an oversight committee hearing today. Rep Gaetz read quotes of racist and anti- semitic remarks Sharpton has said. The democrats had a fit. This follows Baltimore residents anger at Sharpton during the Cummings/rat infestation scene.

    1. I almost lost it watching that. Can you believe the delusion going on there? I mean, really…when they “questioned” Lewandowski, all they did was blame and rant. And when it’s Al Sharpton, they ask if Gaetz’s line of questioning is within the parlimentary rules. OMG! Can you believe the chutzpah? Gaetz was doing EXACTLY what THEY were doing to Lewandowski! Damn, pass me my BP meds, please….

  10. Was it Bernie or Liz that said to a room full of miners, there will be no more using coal in a few years. There are plenty of other jobs you can get.

  11. What I like the most about this report is that it shows people are paying attention. Sometimes I think its just us.

    1. Well, when you think about it, it doesn’t take much exposure to the things that Omar and AOC say, or even the Dem presidential candidates, for ordinary people to say “what’s happening here?”

  12. If there are more nut jobs than normal people, we are truly screwed….I’m sending huge gratitude to RS, MarkLevin, Glenn Beck and all at the Blaze, Lars Larson (our local talk radio conservative for Wa. And Oregon), and any others for keeping us informed..

  13. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. Add to those voters the Conservatives like me who didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 because I was so peeved at him because of his treatment of Cruz. I thought he was a pompous SOB.

    But now after seeing that he’s done some good things I will most certainly vote for him in 2020. I’ve been thinking that we could flip Minnesota which would be, I think, the first time in my lifetime that it went to a Republican!

    Even Reagan didn’t win the state because of Walter Mondale. I would actually feel like my vote would count this time! It’s never counted pretty much in my whole life. I’ve never known how people in Red States feel because my vote has never counted. It’s actually pretty exciting!

    1. I’m another Minnesotan who refused to vote for the pompous SOB in 2016, but he will get my vote in 2020. I still don’t like him, but he hasn’t been the disaster that I was expecting, and he’s definitely done some good stuff. My main motivation in 2020 will be to keep those batsh*t crazy communists out of the White House.

    2. I also wrote in Ted Cruz in 2016 but will vote Trump in 2020, if there is an election. I am not sure what sort of BS is going on behind the scenes, but it is clear to me that the soros-funded DNC and MSM are trying to collapse our country before November 2020 and I also believe there are many RINOs involved in that action too. I have a feeling of dread these days and I am not even watching the news on television anymore. May our Lord help us all…Messiah Yeshua, come quickly to claim us!

      1. “I am not watching the news on television anymore”
        You just made the biggest improvement in your life friend.

        1. So true, Eagle. Without hearing other peoples idea of “news,” I have more joy and less angst in my life. Highly recommended!

    3. It looks like it was pretty close in 2016 (Hillary 46.08% and Trump 44.57%), and Trump actually did really well in the Minneapolis suburbs, which is surprising to an outsider.

      1. It is probably why the DNC is working so hard to convert Texas and Florida; if they get these states, coupled with California, New York and a few others, they do not need so many other states to win. Lord help us!

        1. I’m praying that my state will stay in Trump territory. Trump won here in 2016 but then they went crazy and voted in a full-on Kathleen Sibelius clone for governor during the midterms and gave us a lesbian pow-wow princess* for a Congress person.

          *not in anyway dissing on indigenous Americans. I’m an 1/8th through my grandfather and my niece is a full tribal member (Sac and Fox and Cheyenne but registered Absentee Shawnee) but our Congress critter is a Leftist’s dream – lesbian, woman of color, full on socialist. She’s like AOC meets Liz Warren who found out that she was a daughter from Bernie Sanders’ hippie years.

      2. Yup, I remember that evening because they had to keep waiting to call Minnesota and I was really surprised that it was that close. That’s why I think that it could definitely go to Trump this time around.

          1. Colorado…I see hope living here.
            We split 50/50 on Trump/Cruz and had a strain of Never-Trumpism that effected the vote.
            The Never-Trumpism has mostly been there is a chance.

        1. Welcome to the the Democrat Party of Radical Socialist Marxist Revolutionaries like AOC and company, Pro-criminal illegal aliens, Anti-American Anti-Semite Islamist Muslims like Ilan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.. Globalist Corruptocrats.. Race mongering demagogues in the CBC, etc etc, who has literally abandoned the working men and women all across the country, replacing you with an illegal alien underclass of reliable voters. This is the face of the Democrat party


          American Lincoln Constitutional Republicanism – Limited govt Of, By, For We the People, Unalienable Rights, Freedom and Liberty, Pro-American Working Men and Women.. Free Market Economic Policies of Low Taxation, Less Regulations, Fair Trade, Rule of Law, Strong Borders, Strong US Military

          US President Trump’s 2017 Inaugural Address:
          “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capitol has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capitol, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”

          “That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you. What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.”

          Pres Trump in 2 and a half years created the greatest growing economy post WW2, via GOP Tax Reform-Across the Board Individual and Corporate Tax Cuts, Renegotiated International Trade Deals, imposing Tariffs on China, etc, along with Massively Slashing Obama’s Govt Oppressive Regulatory State, Pres Trump implementing his America First Conservative Economic Financial Market Policies, has created over 6 million high wage jobs, resurrected the Rust Belt Manufacturing industry from the brink of death, Oil, Gas, and Coal production booming at record levels, creating more wealth on Wall Street and Mainstreet than all of Europe combined, successfully put America, the working men and women of America first and foremost above the leftist globalist Est on both sides of the political aisle.


    4. Looks like the last time that Minnesota went for the GOP in a Presidential election was when Nixon won 49 states in 1972 (everywhere but Massachusetts).

      I’m predicting Minnesota or New Hampshire (or both) to flip to Trump in 2020.

      1. Yup, in 1972 I was just entering high school and paid absolutely no attention to politics at that time. It would sure be nice to have my vote actually make a difference.

  14. The Republican presidential primary in Minnesota favored the conservative candidates, if I remember correctly (UPDATE: Rubio 17, Cruz 13, Trump 8).

  15. If we didn’t have the constant propaganda coming from the usual sources, plus the known Dem tactics of cheating (ballot harvesting for example), I would say that Trump is on track for a clear victory next year.

    But those two factors are huge and dangerous. So I’m taking nothing for granted until all the votes are certified and the Dem loser has conceded.

  16. CNN: “In rural Minnesota things are changing: the temperature, the leaves, the politics….”

    [Hypothetical] CNN Follow up: “And all this quaint normalcy would likely continue unabated were it not for the impending death sentence of climate change.”

  17. Predictably, the piece is being heavily down-voted by CNN’s viewership over at their YouTube page. Everyone from here should stop by and give it a quick up-vote!

  18. soros/obama/clinton and the rest of the “new” Commie-Socialist Progressive Demo☭rat Party have moved so far left that they have become America’s largest hate-group and Americans are abandoning them. I am sure this retreat by democrats from their party is old news to the DNC, which is why they recruit new voters from other countries. Soon, America will be so inundated with foreigners that, if ignored, it will be very easy to convert the USA to the one-world order the dems and rinos have been moving us toward for decades. It is time for the American people, who can easily appeal to the foreigners coming here (except for mooslums, who have told us they want to destroy America from within) to start speaking with these new voters, as many are actually quite conservative. They simply know no better about America and our government. It requires some hard work.

    1. Democrats need a high crime rate in the inner cities so they can promise the people living there that they will fix the problem. Just like they have for…always.

    2. But I thought Beto was going to go in there and disarm everyone himself He would use the “Spastic Hands” method of self defense he mastered under Sensei John Kasich.

  19. It shouldn’t be about just coal miners. I ask all Democrats to name 1 thing that president Obama or bill Clinton did to help the middle class worker in the USA? If you can’t think of at least 1 thing, you are either brain dead or you need to change your politics.

  20. Problem is voting one way for Presidential elections, but the polar opposite for local elections really does not help you out. Bad choices at the local level are far worse, having direct and immediate consequences to the voter.

    1. The real problem is being an uneducated voter. If you can’t take the time to educate yourself on the issues and the candidates, then I believe you shouldn’t vote.

      CA if facing some real challenges because of an electorate that hasn’t a CLUE about what they are voting for/against. For example, millions in the last election voted to raise our gas taxes and now they don’t understand why our gas prices are so HIGH. That’s only one example, there are hundreds of others.

      1. Much of that is from the government education system- idiots churning out more idiots, endlessly. The elect only need voters and workers. They fear actual citizens more than anything.

    2. Also, what is a Republican president going to do with a Democratic congressman, if you are only voting R at the top of the ticket?

      1. Trump? He will just turn into whatever he needs to in order to be loved. That’s what populist politicians do. Otherwise, you are correct: they should cancel each other out. Which isn’t always a bad thing.

        At the local level though, that’s where things get truly painful. That’s how Maryland went to Hell and is how Virginia is going the same route.

        1. I agree with Trump as shapeshifter, it’s one of the thing that scares me most about him having a Democratic congress.

          The problem with local, is that it is that the line is so blurred between it and the Federal government. Federal dollars, due to changes made a century ago, are what allows state and local governments to get so bad.

  21. In the 1930s and 1940s, Adolf Hitler did 2 things to persuade a whole nation to commit to genocide. He took the weapons from the people so they couldn’t defend themselves, and he took over the media and committed character assanation of the Jews. The Democrat party is attempting to take our guns and 97% of the media and all of the Democrat party are attempting the same thing with president Trump. Judge no man by what he says but by what he does. Obama promised the world and gave us division and ruin. Trump has done his best to do what he promised.

    1. That’s what I have been saying. The Dems are headed to commit mass killings like the Nazis did unless we stop this nonsense now.

    2. Two other important Similarities between the Democrat party and the Nazis. Both wanted state provided health care. Both believes in abortion and sterilization to get rid of the undesirables. In the Democrats case, that would be black people.
