"Senior GOP congressman" told Fox News Trump "could lose Michigan" over Dingell attacks

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/12/trump-may-have-just-lost-michigan-according-to-a-senior-gop-congressman/



While President Donald Trump was being impeached in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night, he was firing up his base with a MAGA rally in Battle Creek, Michigan — where the president, not surprisingly, angrily railed against Democrats. One of his targets was the late Democrat John Dingell, who represented Michigan in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1955-2015. Trump suggested that Dingell was in hell, and Fox News’ Chad Pergram is warning that doing so could hurt the president politically in 2020.

On Thursday morning, Pergram (who covers Congress for Fox News) went to Twitter and reported, “Multiple sources tell Fox Trump is playing w/fire by taking on the Dingells in the swing state of Michigan.” A source described by Pergram as a “senior GOP congressman” told Fox News that Trump “could lose Michigan alone on this one.”

Dingell, as Pergram notes, was the longest-serving congressman in U.S. history. The late Democrat, who was 92 when he died on February 7, 2019, entered the U.S. House of Representatives when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president and stayed for half a century.

In Michigan, there has been quite an outcry over Trump’s anti-Dingell rant. The congressman’s widow, Rep. Debbie Dingell, tweeted, “Mr. President, let’s set politics aside. My husband earned all his accolades after a lifetime of service. I’m preparing for the first holiday season without the man I love. You brought me down in a way you can never imagine, and your hurtful words just made my healing much harder.”

10. It got pass by adding the ballot initiative to draw out the youth vote.

According to Michael Moore in the 2018 election in Michigan, they DOUBLED their young voter turn out by adding a marijuana legalization initiative and an initiative that would make gerrymandering and voter suppression against the law. BOTH initiatives PASSED with large margins.

To bring out young voters we need ballot initiatives on every ballot in every precinct that are important to young voters.

We need to start now to get those initiatives on ballots.

8. Hmmm...

People have short memories. Trump said, 'How stupid are the people of Iowa?' Then Iowans voted for him.

9. Yet another reason to leave the Articles of Impeachment with Pelosi. The orange mouth is bound to...

... make matters worse for himself. One straw at a time added to the camel's back. Who knows enough straws and the entire tide will turn. And the evil will get removed from ever holding another public office.

11. Trump actually lose some support?

For all his hateful antics, it never seems to be remarked that it might cost Trump votes.
