What They Still Don’t Realize About Trump Voters

As the smoke clears from the wreckage of Indiana, which brought down both Ted Cruz as well as John Kasich, we now know that the pundits and analysts who predicted Trump’s demise on so many occasions were wrong. We also know that Trump, who once remarked that some thought he could shoot someone in Times Square in broad daylight without losing supporters, appears to have been right about himself.

Some 40% of those voting in Republican caucuses and primaries this year have voted for Trump. In what he has constantly derided as the Republicans’ “rigged system,” that sufficed to garner enough delegates to clear out the competition.

Who are these Trump voters? Why was the accumulated conventional wisdom so wrong about Trump and his political chances at every turn?

Victor Davis Hanson, writing in National Review, posts a lyrical description of the Trump constituency in the attempt to explain why so many of us have been baffled:

Help Re-elect Senator Ron Johnson

Dear Committed Activist,

First I want to thank each of you for all that you did to help with the Spring Election. With your help we were not only able to turn out a historic number of Republican primary voters but also elected Justice Rebecca Bradley to a full term on the Supreme Court.

We now must turn our attention to November and doing everything we can to re-elect Senator Ron Johnson. The stakes could not be higher and it is imperative that we continue to have Ron out in Washington D.C. fighting for the hardworking people of Wisconsin.

The first step in making sure that we re-elect Senator Johnson is getting him on the ballot.
I am asking that each of you collect at least 10 nomination signatures by May 20th. You can access the nomination form and instruction sheet by clicking here.

After collecting those signatures they must be mailed to RPW Headquarters in Madison:
Republican Party of Wisconsin
148 E. Johnson St.
Madison, WI 53713

Starting today, you may begin collecting signatures. This is a huge undertaking and a great opportunity to once again showcase the incredible grassroots infrastructure we have here in our state. I hope I can count on your support to not only meet, but exceed these goals, and help to keep Wisconsin moving forward.

Sincerely,
Chairman Brad Courtney

Wisconsin Supreme Court Election Gets Nasty. And Weird.

In this very unusual election year, it is understandable that all eyes are turned to the spring primary elections and caucuses preparatory to the party conventions in July and the general election in November. But other offices are being decided this spring, too — offices of crucial importance on the municipal, county, and state level.

And some of those elections are shaping up to be just as nasty as the national elections promise to be.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DJwuDa77hO5HRztEP-sVAWYMFpyTjoYCrzolRxLx8IU/viewform

As an Election Observer, you will be trained in basic election law and the voting process generally.

Super Saturday for Justice Bradley on Sat March 19

We will be looking for people to come into the Bayside office to make phone calls, or to be out knocking on doors in your own neighborhood. At our office, we’ll have a couple of TVs on and food and drinks for those who want to watch the NCAA tournament while making some calls as well.

After this week, it is crucial that we get the word out as to why people need to vote for Justice Bradley. Even if you can only stop by for 20 minutes or only knock on a few doors, every voter we can contact will make a difference. Let me know if you are able to help out on Saturday, or if you absolutely cannot on Saturday, if there is another day you can come in this week or next week.

Thanks,
David Bredemus

Big bucks, shadowy companies: Election mystery money returns

Campaign money from shadowy sources is back this presidential election.

At least $4 million of it is flowing to outside groups helping White House hopefuls, making it difficult to trace who’s behind the big bucks. Both parties benefit from money routed through obscure corporations, or from nonprofits that don’t have to disclose their donors.

The contributions are a reminder of federal court decisions in recent years, like Citizens United, that loosened prior restrictions in campaign finance laws. That can hide who’s really backing candidates - and what favors or influence could be owed should they get elected.

Republicans are for Election Integrity

What are Democrats for?

Make a difference, Become a pollworker

Make a difference in Milwaukee County.

The Republican Party of Milwaukee County, by State statute, gets to nominate people who want to be pollworkers in their own municipalities in Milwaukee County.

Become a paid Republican Pollworker:

Be on the front line of fighting vote fraud at the polling place.
This is a paid position, you are an employee of your municipality.
You are trained by your municipal clerk.
Besides working on Election Day you also may be offered additional time  prior to the election.
We need you to respond by November 15, so that we can then appoint you to your municipality by November 30.

Being a Republican pollworker in your municipality is an excellent way to help prevent election fraud while getting paid for it at the same time. If you are interested in being a (paid) pollworker, please contact the Republican Party of Milwaukee County at 414-727-1220.

Volunteer to become an Election Observer:

Become the “eyes and ears” of the Republican Party.
We will arm you with the tools you will need to become an effective observer.
Your presence at the polls will let “would be violators” know that “we are watching”.
We want you to volunteer for the February primary or the April election so that you are an experienced observer for the all important fall elections.
Contact the Republican Party of Milwaukee County at 414-727-1220.

Be a pollworker in Milwaukee County and help stop voter fraud!

The RPMC has to submit lists of Republican pollworkers to the municipalities by November 30 of this year for the next two year period. If you are on the list, you are assured of being a paid pollworker who will have the power to stop voter fraud from happening. This time, due to a change in the statute, any resident of Milwaukee County can be a pollworker in any municipality of Milwaukee County, so you do not have to be a resident of the City of Milwaukee to be a pollworker in the City of Milwaukee.

Please let us know if you want to be a pollworker so we can put you on the list. If you have been a pollworker in the past, you still need to let us know if you want to continue as you will still need to be on the list we submit. If you want to be on the list, contact pollworker coordinator Jim McFarland at 414-665-2720, email Jim at jamesmcfarland AT northwesternmutual.com , or leave a message with the Republican Party of Milwaukee County at 414-727-1220.

The Republican Party of Milwaukee County can nominate you to be a Republican election worker in your community.

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for Eisenhower/Nixon

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for the Republican presidential ticket, Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon.

Martin Luther King told Nixon of his vote during a public meeting in Ghana, where they were attending a presidential inauguration.

While campaigning for re-election, Vice President Richard Nixon declared: “Most of us will live to see the day when American boys and girls will sit, side by side, at any school - public or private - with no respect paid to the color of skin. Segregation, discrimination and prejudice have no place in America.”

The following year, Vice President Nixon helped defeat the Democrat filibuster against the GOP’s 1957 Civil Rights Act.
