Justin Amash Being Crushed by Double Digits by Primary Challengers in Poll

Michigan Republican voters aren’t happy with Amash’s decision to endorse impeaching the President.

New polling in Michigan’s third congressional district reveals anti-Trump libertarian congressman Justin Amash facing a difficult path to reelection.

Amash is trailing a primary challenger, State Representative Jim Lower, by ten percentage points. 17% of MI-3 Republicans support Amash, and 27% endorse Lower. The congressman, who bucked his party, joining progressive Democrats in backing the impeachment of Donald Trump, is tied at 17% with yet another state representative mounting a primary challenge, Lynn Afendoulis.

Tom Norton and Peter Meijer take 5% and 4% respectively in the Strategic National poll, which surveyed 400 Republican voters in Amash’s district from June 29th to July 1st.

Polling well behind relatively unknown primary challengers spells dubious prospects for Amash’s reelection, having represented the Grand Rapids congressional district since 2011.

The polling data supports the notion of Amash facing wide backlash from Michigan Republicans for supporting impeachment. Amash was forced to delete his own Facebook page on Wednesday, unwilling to accept harsh feedback from his traditional constituency unhappy with his decision to join hand-in-hand with Democrats in pursuing the removal of President Trump.

Facing abysmal polling around a year from an impending primary against low-profile challengers, it appears likely the Chinese-connected businessman and libertarian could be headed to similar pastures as retired anti-Trump Senator Jeff Flake, who was faced to bow out from his reelection for his constant agitation against the President.

With Amash out of the way, American patriots of Michigan’s Third District will very probably have a new Member of Congress focused on policy priorities, as opposed to Russia-conspiracy based leftist impeachment nonsense divorced from reality.

Matt Gaetz SLAMS North Carolina’s Richard Burr After Insider Trading Scandal

Matt Gaetz is taking aim at Richard Burr.

Published

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz brutally slammed North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in a Monday tweet, taking Burr to task for his involvement in an insider trading scandal that has merited him rebuke from commentators and political figures from across partisan and ideological lines.

Gaetz likened Senator Burr to a historical figure sharing his namesake, Aaron Burr. Gaetz compared Burr’s infamous shooting of Alexander Hamilton in a New Jersey duel to a metaphorical shooting of the Republican Party’s credibility on behalf of the modern-day Burr.

Gaetz had earlier taken aim at Burr for his involvement in the insider trading scandal, expressing his opinion that the Senate Intelligence Committee Chair had used his position for gainful financial information.

Senator Burr had sold a significant amount of stock shares in the weeks preceding the global Chinese coronavirus epidemic, and it’s alleged he had been briefed on the dangerous nature of the epidemic before the public was fully aware of its highly contagious nature. He’s currently being investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee for his stock exchange sales in the weeks preceding the virus’ spread in America.

Burr began selling off stocks on February 13th, ultimately going on to liquidate $1.3 million of company shares.

Burr isn’t the only Senator who is suspected of potential insider trading in the weeks before the virus largely tanked the stock market. Georgia’s Kelly Loefler, California’s Dianne Feinstein, Oklahoma’s James Inhofe, and Georgia’s David Purdue all sold stocks in January and February, avoiding personal financial losses as a result of the virus’ impact on the economy.

Sources close to President Trump suggest that he would prefer for Burr to resign in light of the situation. Tucker Carlson called for Burr’s resignation in a scathing segment earlier this month.
