Dear Democrats / Media: ICYMI Last Night Was A Referendum On You, Not
Dear Democrats / Media: ICYMI Last Night Was A Referendum On You, Not Trump
Zero Hedge - Wednesday June 21, 2017
by Tyler Durden
For months now the entire country has been forced to listen as Democrats and the media prematurely boasted about the Georgia special election being a 'yuge' referendum on the Trump administration. Guess what, it wasn't.
Democrats lost last night not because 'Russia' stole the election, not because it rained in Dekalb county and supressed the minority vote and not because Trump is doing an amazing job...Democrats lost again last night because Americans are sick and tired of mainstream, corrupt politicians, tired of the millions of dollars that flowed into Ossoff's bank accounts from San Francisco in an apparent attempt to buy a house seat and tired of the fake media narratives on Russian hacking.
What's more, Democrats lost despite playing all the games they always play to give themselves an edge. Democrats spent more money on this race than any in the history of congressional races, outspending Handel by a margin of 7-to-1...but it didn't matter.
Democrats lost despite crying out 'minority voter suppression' and running to a judge to keep polls open longer in heavily Democratic areaswhile other polling stations closed on time...because there is no way there were any "technical glitches" in Fulton or Cobb county throughout the day...just in Democrat neighborhoods. But it didn't matter.
Democrats lost despite CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Wapo, etc blasting out fake narratives on Russian hacking 24/7...an all out propaganda blitz...millions of dollars worth free air time for the Democrat cause...but it didn't matter.
And Democrats lost depite their best efforts to once again use aggressive "oversamples" to rig polling data. As we pointed out last night, the Real Clear Politics average had Ossoff winning by 5 points just last week...for those keeping track that's a roughly 10-point polling 'error' from how things actually turned out....but it didn't matter.
So, last night was a referendum, but it was a referendum on Democrats and the media, not Trump.
Luckily, at least one liberal talk show host seems to be willing to admit the truth this morning:
"This should be a wake-up call for the Democratic Party, who has been doing nothing but losing since 2010 in these legislative races."
"I heard last night Ossoff say, we've started something great. No, you lost. At some point, the time for moral victories is over.Sometimes winning is just about winning."
But, by all means, keep putting up mainstream candidates, keep spending massive sums of money, keep rigging polls and crying out voter suppression...it didn't work for Hillary or Ossoff...but we bet it will work next time.
