The Indiana Republican presidential primary was yesterday. This was a Republican registered voters only primary. Democrats and independents could not vote in the primary. The results are that 78% voted for Trump. Nikki Haley had 22% of the vote. That's a fairly high percentage for Haley- for so long after Haley dropped out. What does that mean? I don't know. Except I do think that it's going to be a close election. I don't see any landslides for anybody.

In an honest, above board election, I see a landslide for Trump.

Those 22% who voted for Haley; do you see most of them voting for Biden?

Nope. Hell no.

And here is news for you- many "Independents" and Democrats are dissatisfied with Biden and will vote for Trump, based on two issues: the economy and the Border. IMO, Trump can pull in 20-25% (or more) of the black vote, something that has never been done in Republican politics.

The Dems are sweating bullets, they know they are running a horse that has a broken leg.

It means nothing and is completely irrelevant.

And the only way this election is close is via massive voter fraud and election interference.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has charged Trump with falsifying bookkeeping records of a nondisclosure payment in order to commit or conceal another crime, Bragg still hasn’t revealed what that other crime is. It’s really the key to the whole case. Without the other crime, there would be no charges against Trump in this matter. The fact that we — and that includes the defendant — still don’t know what the other crime is is one of the great injustices of a felony prosecution that never should have happened...[Bragg's] theory is that if Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in the fall of 2016 to keep her from going public with her story that she and Trump had a sexual encounter and then Trump repaid Cohen in 2017, then that was a campaign contribution and should have been reported to the FEC. The payments were made “for the purpose of influencing any election,” the theory continues, and the Trump campaign should have filed a document with the FEC listing among its campaign contributions and expenditures that it received and spent $130,000 for “hush money.”

If you think that sounds a little odd for an FEC disclosure, you’re right. That’s where one of the critical witnesses to be called by the Trump defense comes in. Bradley Smith is a former chairman of the FEC, and on many occasions, including long before Trump, he has argued that there are all sorts of things a candidate can spend money on that are not legally classifiable as “for the purpose of influencing any election.” ... Smith, having headed the FEC, has many examples from the commission’s enforcement of federal election law that illustrate his point. He knows what he is talking about, and it seems clear that his expert opinion is that paying off Daniels, no matter what one might think of it, is not a campaign expenditure or donation that FECA requires a candidate to disclose. The Trump defense plans to call Smith as a witness. Not because he has any personal knowledge of the Trump transaction but because he understands, and has enforced, the campaign law that Bragg’s prosecutors appear to be planning to use against Trump.

But Merchan has forbidden Smith from testifying about most of the issues involved in the case.

Among the things Smith might be able to testify about is the novelty of the current Trump prosecution. Merchan will not allow it. “Defendant seeks to elicit from Smith, among other things, that at the time Cohen paid Daniels, there had never been a case in which anyone had been convicted of a federal campaign finance law violation for the making of ‘hush money payments,'” Merchan wrote. Smith might also be asked about “the facts surrounding the trial of former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards, his subsequent acquittal, and that the case was heavily criticized.”

Merchan will not allow it.

Other things Smith might be able to testify about are the FEC’s decision to dismiss a complaint against Trump for this very matter and the Justice Department’s decision not to prosecute Trump for the same set of actions. But Merchan said Smith cannot say a word about those matters. “That the FEC dismissed the complaint against defendant and the DOJ decided against prosecuting defendant for potential FECA violations are probative of nothing,” Merchan wrote on March 18. “These matters are therefore irrelevant and defendant is precluded from eliciting testimony or introducing evidence or both.” So Smith can talk about none of that. None of it.

I keep on reading posts indicating that Trump is going to win in a landslide - unless there is massive fraud. We all look at the political situation based upon the information available to us and our own experiences. I come to the opinion that it's going to be a close election based upon what I read and what I hear from others. I have a son who lives in PA. He tells me he saw Trump signs everywhere (in his very Republican county) in the last two elections. So far this year the only two lawn signs he has seen are two Nicki Halley signs that are still being displayed today. They have not been replaced by Trump signs. He hasn't seen any Trump signs at all. His neighbor is in law enforcement. He says he won't be voting for Biden, but he is not voting for Trump either. He can't support a guy who is OK with pardoning people who beat the shit out of cops. So based on what I hear and read, and the anecdotes I hear, I think it's going to be close. So I am interested in knowing on what basis some are saying it's going to be a landslide. We all tend to associate with people who think like ourselves. So our opinions tend to get reinforced by those around us who already think like us. I don't read anywhere that it's going to be a landslide. Day to day the polls change, but right now in most (not all) battleground states, Trump has a lead, but usually within the margin of error. To be clear, I will be casting a vote for Trump. I am not posing the question with any anti-Trump bias. Just as an aside, I think that many think Trump will win in a landslide - because how could anybody with an ounce of sense vote for and ass hole like Biden. But I am well aware that many people have a major dislike for Trump that may cause some to vote for Biden anyway. So what is the basis of your belief that Trump will win in a landslide?

It's a statement vote, people who don't like DJT, so they are flipping the process a bird.

Most likely are not going to hold their noses and vote for DJT even if it means 4 more years of Dementia Joe, Ukraine War, High Fuel Prices.

My brother is one of them, conservative, Republican, can't stand DJT thinks he is the worst thing for the party, all the BS, Court Trials, loud, brash comments, crude, misogynistic, he's bought all the hype about the bad DJT so that outweighs a horrible Biden.

He won't vote for Joe, but he won't vote for DJT and I think there are millions like him out there, I know several who just want all the political BS to go away. You can't explain to them how even if you don't like the guy, he's exposing the machine behind the curtain on the corruption in DC.

These folks just are not that into politics, and you can call them whatever names we want, but the fact is, both sides, and the middle there are millions who can't stand DJT, ie Nikki Haily voters for a candidate who isn't on the ballot.

Edited because for some reason the post locked up and wouldn't let me finish it.

Well said. I agree completely. The abortion issue is not going to help Trump. Add to that you've got the idiot Marjorie Taylor Greene who is doing great damage to the Republican brand as a whole. That doesn't help. Do I think Trump can win? Yes. Is it going to be a landslide? Not a chance.

Based on what we saw in the 2020 election....regarding ballot box stuffing, shady court rulings, ballots trucked across state lines, etc....Do you think Pres Trump really won? By how many votes? And Biden got how many votes? Remember Pres Trump's rallies? Remember Biden's? If everything is on the up and up this year, I'm going for the landslide win. We will see.

FreedomWorks, once influential conservative group, blames Trump after announcing it’s shutting down

FreedomWorks, the once influential conservative group that helped spur the tea party movement, is reportedly shutting its doors and blaming the influence of Donald Trump for its demise.

FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon told Politico in an exclusive interview published Wednesday that the group has dissolved, "effective immediately." Wednesday marked the last day for the organization’s roughly two dozen staff members.

Fox News Digital has reached out to multiple members, including Brandon, but the outlet reported that FreedomWorks’ board of directors had voted unanimously to shut down immediately.

The group laid off just under half of its staff last year, and its revenue has plummeted by almost as much since 2022, according to the report.

Brandon said the ideological upheaval of the Trump era ultimately led to FreedomWorks’ demise. He said Trump’s rise created a rift between libertarian-leaning conservatives and the MAGA-style populism of Trump supporters.

"A lot of our base aged, and so the new activists that have come in [with] Trump, they tend to be much more populist," Brandon told the outlet. "So, you look at the base that just kind of shifted."

The shift, he said, was seen even in FreedomWorks’ own members, which divided into MAGA and "Never Trump factions."

This impacted the group’s ability to raise money, noting that donors are increasingly asking: "What are you doing for Trump today?" Still, others complained that the group was doing too much to help the former president, putting Brandon in an impossible position.

"[W]e’re not for or against Trump," said FreedomWorks’ board member Paul Beckner, according to Politico. "We’re for Trump if he’s doing what we agree with, and we’re against if he’s not. And I think we’ve seen an erosion of conservative donors."

Brandon said he has his eyes set on launching a new libertarian-leaning organization focused on politically independent millennials and Gen Z’ers.

These are what those who are paying attention would call clues...Clearly 'Brandon' and his Board of Directors had none!

My sentiments also. I scrolled through a number of comments just to see if there were one or two "moderate", or at least balanced, inputs. Went through a page and didn't see any beacons of sanity, just a lot of irrational hate.

Although crooked politicians are aggravating, they are not nearly so as the people with the mindset of what I saw in those posts because they are the people we meet in everyday life. It's disturbing to know there are so many unhinged individuals out there that we come into contact with on a daily basis.

And based on what I hear, see and read, and the anecdotes I hear not only about Trump, but about Biden, yes, IMO Trump will win big. The following map perfectly exhibits my opinion of what he can achieve in November.



Contrary to other people's opinion, it is not Trump who is unelectable- Biden has this in spades. Abortion will not be an issue, the only two that will matter to voters are the Biden economy and the illegal invaders at the border, everything else will pale in comparison. And those who would place abortion above the two issues have already made up their minds. And as far as MTG being a detriment on the Republicans; most voters have zero clue who she is and don't give a shit. Most voters would not even know who the Speaker of the House is.

Trump New York trial: Karen McDougal won’t take stand after Stormy Daniels testimony

A lawyer for President Donald Trump announced Thursday afternoon that prosecutors no longer plan to bring Playboy model Karen McDougal to testify at his New York criminal hush money trial after two days of testimony from porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump lawyer Todd Blanche said in court that “we have been informed the People no longer intend to call Karen McDougal as a witness,” according to reports from the trial. It is not immediately clear why prosecutors with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office decided not to bring McDougal to the witness stand.

The decision comes after some legal pundits suggested Daniels’s testimony may have damaged the prosecutors’ case, which aims to show Trump conspired to pay her hush money with the intent of advancing his 2016 campaign.

Daniels’s testimony mostly dealt with salacious claims of a sexual encounter she said she had with Trump at a Lake Tahoe resort in 2006, an incident the former president has denied.

Last week, McDougal posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, an image of herself sitting in her bathtub with the book Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow situated between a wine glass and a lit candle. Bragg has called Trump’s alleged efforts to pay tabloid publishers to silence damaging stories about him a “catch-and-kill” scheme that was meant to influence the 2016 campaign.

While former Trump attorney Michael Cohen‘s $130,000 payment to Daniels serves as the case’s primary focus, prosecutors have described two other deals involving Trump, including one with McDougal and another with a former Trump Tower doorman, who created a fake story that the then-presidential candidate had fathered a child out of wedlock.

Blanche’s announcement that McDougal would no longer take the stand comes as the defense is asking both for a mistrial and that Trump be allowed to respond to Daniels’s comments about him in court.

Judge Juan Merchan will have to decide whether to grant a mistrial or to allow Trump to respond, given his gag order prevents him from talking about witnesses. Merchan previously declined Trump’s first mistrial request on Tuesday.
