After Abandoning Trump, Koch Network Announces It Will Support Democrats in 2020

The globalist oligarchs are betraying Trump because of their support of open borders and free trade.

The Koch Brothers were once considered some of the most powerful interests behind the Republican Party, but that is changing because President Donald Trump is not for sale. They are planning to put their considerable resources behind Democratic contenders in 2020.

The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is revamping its operation for next year’s election cycle, prioritizing amnesty for illegals, opposition to tariffs, and support for open borders above all else.

“We expect policymakers to unite people and build coalitions. We’re committed to forging a new way forward with political discourse,” said Emily Seidel, CEO of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re excited for how this new approach will help policymakers work together.”

Instead of Republican victory, the Koch network is now focused on a plan to “elevate civil discourse” which, of course, means returning to the status quo before Trump started regularly calling out the Washington D.C. swamp with gusto.

“If candidates engage in personal, ad hominem attacks and other divisive tactics during their election, it makes it difficult for them to work productively with others after the election,” Seidel wrote in a recent memo to AFP staff and activists.

“One of the biggest challenges to this approach is that those who work to lead nonpartisan coalitions are threatened by people in both parties who prize partisanship over policy outcomes. This makes it difficult for policymakers who want to do what’s best for the country to stick their necks out,” she added.

AFP plans to start the following PACs in upcoming weeks: Uniting for Economic Opportunity, Uniting for Free Expression, Uniting for Free Trade, and Uniting for Immigration Reform. These entities will directly challenge Trump’s ‘America First’ mandate, and make it harder for him to win re-election in 2020.

The Koch network had previously announced in January that it intends to provide no support for Trump’s re-election campaign next year.

Trump hammered the oligarchs for their lack of national pride and loyalty last year in a series of brutal tweets.

The Koch network’s pull-out may do little to stop the Trump train in 2020 though, as their influence is rapidly waning.

Koch functionaries supported then-Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) with digital advertisements after she voted for deregulation during her re-election campaign last year, and then refused to endorse or support her opponent then-Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) heading into the election.

Cramer won in 2018 despite the Koch influence, and is now a pro-Trump Senator from North Dakota. In the age of Trump, the Kochs are no longer political king-makers, and they have now exposed themselves publicly as globalists who are willing to sell out America for an extra buck.

USC Experimental Model Polling Calculation Forecasts Donald Trump Election Victory

They’re accounting for what they call social desirability bias.

Published

on

A polling method utilized by the University of Southern California’s Dornslife College is predicting that President Donald Trump will secure an electoral college victory, deviating from many polling models produced by corporate media in accounting for what they call a “social desirability bias.”

USC’s polling model seeks to account for what they’re citing as shy Trump supporters by asking poll respondents how they believe that those in their own immediatel social circles will vote. The theorists behind the poll argue that such a line of questioning allows respondents more inclined to disclose information to reveal how so-called shy Trump supporters will vote.

“To evaluate the potential impact of the shy voter belief on the responses of poll participants, we asked them three questions: What percent of their social contacts might be embarrassed to admit to pollsters their opinions about Trump or Biden, what percent might fear harassment if they admit these opinions, and what percent might want to obstruct polls by misreporting who they will vote for?

On average, our participants believe that people in their social circle might be more reluctant to admit their support for Trump than for Biden.

When the presence of socially identified shy Trump voters is accounted for, the USC pollsters ultimately make a cautious prediction that Biden will fail to secure 270 electoral college votes.

When we calculate how many electoral votes each candidate could get based on state level averages of the own-intention and social-circle questions, it’s looking like an Electoral College loss for Biden.

Read the entire USC/Dornslife prediction of the 2020 election, how they account for shy Trump supporters, and what they’re defining as social desirability bias here.

Jim Key of USC points to previous correct predictions of the USC/Dornslife polling model in support of the method’s veracity. He argues that the polling organization correctly predicted the outcomes ofthe  2016 U.S. Presidential election, the 2017 French Presidential election, the 2017 Dutch Parliamentary election, the 2018 Swedish Parliamentary election, and the 2018 U.S. election for the House of Representatives.
