DN’s Karen Erickson: Has Donald Trump gotten a little sad?

ICYMI, you read the introduction to the email in your inbox. In case you missed it: If you missed it.

It’s a statement from former President Donald Trump’s Political Committee, Save America. Trump camp thinks I should read Text by right-wing writer Emerald Robinson. It’s about the Georgia primaries set at the end of May. I was there, but it’s definitely something I’ve overlooked.

Emerald Robinson says something stinks. She is furious that incumbent Governor Brian Kemp scored a landslide victory over Trump candidate David Perdue in the Republican Party’s internal power struggle.

Kemp won with numbers 74 to 22. That’s not possible, no one gets 74 percent in any single election in the United States. Robinson claims.

Do you recognize the tones?

When things go wrong, Trump spreads Trump camp conspiracy theories about cheating. Just like after the presidential election in 2020. Then the president refused to accept his loss by a narrow margin in Georgia. He was particularly upset when state Republicans, led by Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Ravensburger, testified that the election had gone in the right direction.

In the new year 2021, he made the phone call that could not be described as anything other than a political scandal: he urged the incumbent politically in the case of a major wave to simply find enough votes to change the outcome of the election. But Ravensburger, who called Trump on the phone, refused.

The primaries – where parties name their midterm candidates in November – will be Trump’s biggest revenge. But it did not go at all as planned in Georgia. Both Kemp and Ravensberger won by a much larger margin of victory than the polls had predicted.

In a message from Save America Emerald Robinson portrays Trump’s support as the most powerful force in American politics. That’s not without reason, because before Georgia, the primaries seemed to cement Trump’s image as the kingmaker or godfather of the Republican Party.. Many of his candidates were expelled.

Senator Rand Paul had 86 percent in Kentucky. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had more than 83 percent support in the primaries in her campaign to become the governor of Arkansas. Let’s take a few examples from politicians who won elections this spring with margins of victory far greater than those that Emerald Robinson wrongly described as impossible.

She’s a journalist who was allowed to leave the right-wing Newsmax after spreading lies about the COVID-19 vaccine.

But she is not alone in speculating on what really happened in Georgia, and what happened to Trump’s takeover of the Republican Party.

Are core voters tired in the end?

Maybe it’s even more about the loyal support forces starting to feel the kneading – a bit sad.

The night before the primaries in Georgia Brian Kemp campaigned with former Vice President Mike Pence at an airstrip northwest of Atlanta. Then I met – as I have done many times before – some of the Republicans who were leading Trump. They were the kind of Americans who feel 100 percent home on the right, who love guns, fight abortions, want lower taxes, and think the left’s fight against racism is derailed. But they hate Trump’s tone and grumble about conspiracy theories about rigged elections.

But I also spoke to voters who said they loved Donald Trump. They just happened to like the ruler, too, and thought it was the most important thing right now.

A man told me He lost patience with Trump before the Senate re-election in January of last year. While Trump and his cronies fought by all means to reverse their election defeat, Georgia had to go to the polls again, to appoint two state senators. The important Senate majority was at stake.

But Trump’s campaign efforts were all about how to rob him of an election victory. If anything, it was the rhetoric that was discouraging right-wing voters from engaging in more so-called elections. Democratic candidates took both seats.

The man thinks Trump has done nothing for Georgia.

During his years as a presidential candidate And President Trump never ceases to amaze. Today, his shows are based on pure reruns. Which media is “fake news”, fake news. Right-wing politicians are Republican Rhinos in name only. (f) The great electoral victory of 2020 that exists only in the imagination and propaganda of the Trump camp.

Finally, or finally, Trump is bored, Rick Lowery wrote in a column for Politico. He is the editor of the conservative national magazine and belongs to the Republican establishment that has fought Trump’s view. There can be some amount of wishful thinking – and he admits it – when he now tries to portray the former president as predictable and even single-minded.

But here’s Lowry’s view: Six years ago, Trump at least shone a spotlight on low-skilled white industrial workers and rural residents, with proposals ranging from immigration to the opioid crisis.

Then the main message was that “I can only fix this”. Now the mantra is rather ‘Only I can be very focused’.

Georgia became a sign That voters want to look forward, rather than disengage from Trump. The margins may have been larger than expected because the Democrats chose to run in the Republican primary. I met some of them at the polls and they told me that they chose to try to block the Trump candidates at all costs. They won’t vote Republican in the November elections, but they may damage Trump’s image as a kingmaker anyway.

However, the former president has more opportunities to act as a godfather. On Tuesday, seven more states will hold primary elections, and Trump has given his blessing to candidates such as Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota.

On Saturday, there is a filling election In front of the Alaskan House of Representatives, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is battling for the seat. Later this summer, Kari Lake could secure the party’s support in the Arizona gubernatorial election. Trump has embraced both heavily. You can say a lot about it – but the judgment “boring” is not handy.

In mid-August, the major battle is fought over Wyoming’s only seat in the House of Representatives. Then, by all accounts, the Trump camp has a good chance of getting rid of Liz Cheney – the congressman who had the audacity to try to get to the bottom of what was happening in the White House during the storming of the Capitol in January. 6, 2021.

The conference starts on Thursday The Special Review Group—led by Cheney—public hearings about the riots. It’s hard to say how the interrogations will affect Trump’s grip on Republicans. House party leaders have distanced themselves from the investigation. They want to get along with Trump – although it will probably be easier to leave what happened from November 2020 to January 2021 there.
