Trump’s reelection betting odds dropping amid pandemic handling

President Trump was considered a lock for reelection by odds makers for the last several months.  After the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic this week, gamblers now consider the 2020 presidential election a toss up between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, according to sportsbetting.ag

Last week the odds of Trump being reelected were -200, meaning a $20 bet would return only $10 if the President wins on November 3.  The odds are -11o today, meaning an $11 bet will return $10 if Trump gets another term. Read the rest of this entry »

After coming up short on Super Tuesday, Bloomberg drops out of presidential race, endorses Biden

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg ended his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination on Wednesday and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. It was a stunning collapse for the former New York City mayor, who had his 2020 hopes on the Super Tuesday states and drained more than $500 million of his own fortune into the campaign.

Bloomberg announced his departure from the race after a disappointing finish on Super Tuesday in the slate of states that account for almost one-third of the total delegates available in the Democratic nominating contest. He won only the territory of American Samoa, and p… Read the rest of this entry »

David Richter should run for congress in CD-12

By Art Gallagher

David Richter

David Richter, the former CEO of Hill International, a global construction management firm, has had a tough start to 2020. Richter, of Princeton, was the front runner for the GOP nomination for Congress in the second district of New Jersey and was poised to end the political career of Congressman Jeff Van Drew.

The impeachment of President Donald J. Trump upended Richter’s self-funded path to Congress.  In a deal brokered by former Governor Chris Christie, according to the NY Times, Van Drew became a Republican and pledged his undying support to the President. Trump, seeing a opportunity much larger than picking up one congressional seat in New Jersey, provided Van Drew with a first class political operation and cleared the path for the freshman congressman to win the GOP nomination for reelection.

What President Trump understands that Democrats don’t

Adam Geller, President of National Research, addresses Monmouth County Republicans.

As a practitioner of public opinion polling, I’ve studied, poked and analyzed opinions for more than 25 years. I’ve learned and grown to appreciate how fickle and malleable opinions can be. I’ve also come to understand through opinion research, why President Trump is playing a winning hand going into 2020 and why he is better positioned for victory than you might think.

Mr. Trump isn’t playing the opinion game. He is playing on a different field. He is playing on beliefs and values. And his opponents are all too happy to assist him.

Opinions can change, and they often do. Beliefs don’t change. We can change our opinion about a candidate, or a restaurant, or a TV series. But we don’t change our fundamental values. We don’t change our beliefs. Opinions are ephemeral. Beliefs are unwavering.

Adam Geller joins pro-Trump Super PAC

Adam Geller

Pollster extraordinaire Adam Geller, president of National Research, Inc., Holmdel, has signed on with America First Action PAC and America First Policies, according to a report at Washington Examiner.

The news in June that Geller had been “fired” by the Trump campaign was fake.   Joining the Super PAC was always the plan.  The FEC mandated “cooling off period” before a professional can move between a campaign and a PAC supporting the same candidate recently expired.

Cory Booker Owes the LGBTQ Community an Answer about Sin

By Thomas DeSeno

Despite Article 6, Clause 3 of the Constitution outlawing religious tests for public office, Democrats have been inquiring about the religious beliefs of government appointees.

This modern Democrat “Star Chamber” has revealed itself in several recent incidents.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D., California) told Catholic federal court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern…”.

Then came the double teaming of federal Court nominee Brian Buesher by Senators Kamala Harris (D., California) and Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii).  They questioned Buesher about various Catholic beliefs, followed by Hirono requesting he quit the Catholic fraternity Knights of Columbus before being sworn; a clear violation of his Constitutional rights. Harris and Hirono were formally rebuked by the entire Senate for this religious inquisition.
