GOP Pollster Predicts: ‘The Next 48 Hours Are Going To Be The Worst’ Ever For Republicans

Whatever meager chances Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue had of winning another term in the U.S. Senate were very likely shot to hell the moment Donald Trump began speaking at a rally for the two in Georgia on Monday evening.

For example, Trump was supposedly trying to get Republicans to turn out and vote, but the remarks he made during his speech were anything but supportive of the importance of casting a ballot, with the president declaring:

“There’s no way we lost Georgia… This was a rigged election.”

If elections are rigged in Georgia, why should anyone bother to take the time to vote? It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of democracy when the head of state lambastes the very idea of participating in the most basic tenet of any healthy republic.

Even Republicans are convinced that Trump has destroyed the party with his endless whining, lawsuits, and schemes to subvert the will of American voters, and they’re predicting Loeffler and Perdue are probably doomed, too.

Frank Luntz is one of the most well-known Republican pollsters in the country, and he believes the GOP is about to be handed a complete loss of power in the nation’s capital, telling CNBC on Tuesday:

“There is a greater divide in the Republican Party than there is in the Democratic Party. The party is in the process of tearing itself apart and you don’t do that now, when you’re this close to the most important Senate election, literally, in a lifetime. Democrats are unified, Republicans are not and that’s what gives them the advantage.”

What does that mean when the votes are counted in Georgia and Joe Biden is confirmed as the next president by a joint session of Congress o Wednesday? According to Luntz:

“I think the next 48 hours are going to be among the worst for the GOP.”

All of Trump’s claims of voter fraud, Luntz added, have hurt Republican turnout in Georgia:

“Democrats are voting in record numbers over the last two, three weeks. Republicans are being told to stay home and Donald Trump, when he shows up to deliver that final rallying cry, he spends as much time talking about his own election as he does about the Republicans.”

How do you know when your political party is screwed? When the ostensible leader of it trashes the very idea of participating in self-government.

Everything Trump touches dies. Absolutely everything.

Loeffler Goes Full Jim Crow With Disgusting Racist Attack On Raphael Warnock

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) has seen the polls and early voting results in the Peach State, and she knows she’s trailing her Democratic opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock. But rather than point out where she stands on the issues — COVID-19, the economy, health care — Loeffler decided she’d head straight for the gutter and attack Warnock for daring to be an African-American man.

During a campaign rally Saturday evening, Loeffler tried to suggest that Warnock was some sort of depraved black man, the same kind of evil stereotype that was frequently used in the old days of Jim Crow, when a black man could be lynched for so much as looking at a white woman for too long.

Dave Weigel of the Washington Post caught part of Loeffler’s speech, and he shared it on Twitter:

Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, pointed out exactly the depths to which Loeffler had just stooped:

Keep in mind that Loeffler — who seems to believe she alone is fitting to be a Senator for a Southern state — was appointed to her seat by the Republican governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp. She has no prior government service and her sole claim to fame seems to be that she married a multimillionaire Wall Street tycoon and travels in the right social circles.

Kelly Loeffler and her equally disgusting counterpart, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) are both bigoted cowards who aren’t worthy of the U.S. Senate. Hopefully Georgia voters will send both of them to an early retirement next Tuesday.
