Before Filing Bankruptcy, National Rifle Association Cut Their Spending to Support Trump by Nearly Half

Does this organization deserve support from conservatives?

Published

Before the National Rifle Association (NRA) filed bankruptcy, the pro-gun group cut spending for President Donald Trump by nearly half from 2016 to 2020, turning their backs on the president and the country when they were needed most.

Open Secrets reported that the NRA spent $29.1 million on federal elections during the 2020 election cycle. This is down from the $54.4 million that they spent in the 2016 election cycle. The NRA blames left-wing lawfare for the organization’s waning effectiveness but leadership has been embroiled in corruption scandals in recent years. 

As the NRA drops the ball, anti-gun groups are taking off and spending loads of money to make an impact on political races. The NRA were forced to declare bankruptcy earlier this year to get out of New York where left-wing attorney general Letitia James had put their finances under the microscope.

The N.R.A.’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt,” James said. “While we review this filing, we will not allow the [NRA] to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight.”

Big League Politics has reported on the many capitulations made by the NRA on gun control over the years:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has supported gun control on many occasions throughout its long history, and they are moving back in that direction if their public statement released today is any indicator…

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump endorsed “red flag” gun control laws that would deny rights enshrined under the 2nd Amendment to anyone arbitrarily deemed a dangerous individual by the courts.

“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that, if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said, in response to two mass shootings that took place over the weekend.

“That is why I have called for red-flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders,” he added.

The NRA’s statement in favor of Trump’s sentiments is a clear endorsement of red flag laws, an issue the organization has tap danced around in recent years.

“Nobody wants dangerous people to have access to firearms which is why the NRA supports risk protection orders that respects the due process of rights and ensures those found mentally ill receive the care they need,” said National Rifle Association’s Catherine Mortensen in January.

Other more consistent firearms freedom groups, such as the Gun Owners of America (GOA) and National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR), are firmly in opposition of the capitulation made by President Trump and the NRA on this issue.

The NRA has served as a glorified rubberstamp for establishment Republican politicians over the years. They are one of the many institutions that have failed America and been woefully inept at defending the Constitution.

Trump Campaign Autopsy Shows Decline in Support From White Men, Coronavirus Epidemic Cost President Re-Election

The 2016 coalition didn’t hold this election.

A post-election autopsy reveals that Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election by losing support from White men and Americans who disapproved of his handling and communication regarding the coronavirus epidemic.

Data suggesting as such was obtained by Trump campaign pollster Tony Fabrizio.

“Racially, POTUS suffered his greatest erosion with White voters, particularly White Men in both state groups,” Fabrizio revealed in his findings. Fabrizio referred to swing states that Trump had held from 2016 and those he had lost. The pollster queried voters in ten different states.

Trump also suffered a decline in support from the youngest Americans and those older than 65. There’s strong reason to believe that some assertions within the Republican Party that the coronavirus pandemic was “no biggie” played a crucial in eroding President Trump’s support among seniors, a vital constituency that has traditionally been strongly Republican. Fabrizio’s data indicates that the coronavirus pandemic was by far and away the most important campaign issue in the 2020 election, and that its importance among the electorate played decisively in Joe Biden’s favor.

President Trump’s support among White Men declined by as much as 12% in swing states that he lost in 2020. Joe Biden also improved his vote share among the demographic, which still voted strongly Republican, although in a diminished fashion.

It’s been said that Joe Biden won the election with a Democratic version of the so-called “Sailer Strategy,” discarding the Obama coalition in favor of making direct appeals to white seniors who traditionally vote Republican.

At the direction of Jared Kushner, the Trump 2020 campaign prioritized minority outreach and the so-called ‘Platinum Plan’ in hopes of expanding the President’s base of support. This appears to have been only partially successful, and may have come at the crucial cost of outreach energy and resources targeting middle-class white voters who won Trump the presidency.

President Trump expanded his support from Hispanic Americans, a vital constituency in states such as Texas, Nevada and Florida. However, the midwestern Rust Belt has smaller Hispanic communities, and Trump ultimately lost Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Hispanic outreach in Arizona, a state Trump lost by 10,000 votes, didn’t prove as successful as it was in other Sun Belt states, especially with the state’s White senior population inching to the left, relative to 2016. Buffed Hispanic support didn’t prove enough to ultimately swing Nevada, although the President secured a comfortably high margin of victory in Florida.

Trump’s buffed appeal with Hispanics wasn’t matched with Black voters, who largely voted in a fashion comparable to the 2016 election.

A future Republican candidate- even Trump himself, should he choose to run- would have to look more closely at the path to victory staked out in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign if they seek a strategy with a proven record of success. It’s entirely plausible to believe that future nationalist, populist and conservative presidential candidates can receive even greater levels of Hispanic support while regaining the white blue-collar populist demographic that swept President Trump into the White House in 2016.

Unfortunately, Fabrizio’s autopsy is likely to be wholly ignored, with a sizable contingent of conservatives blaming Trump’s loss exclusively on a set of election steal theories from “brand” online lifestyle influencers. With a persistent fixation on empty dopamine hits, it may prove that Republicans will never a national election ever again, powerless as the Left and corporations transform the United States into a left-liberal oligarchy.
