Rep. Steve King (R-IA), the “America First” lawmaker who has stood the strongest behind President Donald Trump since his election, has been attacked mercilessly by the fake news over the past year, as they hope to kick the top Trump advocate out of the U.S. House in the 2020 election.
However, it seems like those attacks have fallen flat, according to a new poll conducted by G1 Survey Research that was released on Monday. The fake news has done little to slow down King’s momentum, and he holds a commanding lead over his declared intra-party challengers.
A new poll shows me beating my 4 primary opponents 59% to their combined 23%! Thank you 4th District Rs! You’ve seen through the NY Times #FakeNews attacks on me and the attacks on @RealDonaldTrump. Annoy the times: re-elect King and Trump. #MAGA

King has a 44 point lead over the second-place candidate in the 4th District Republican Congressional primary, state senator Randy Feenstra, who has emerged opportunistically as his opponent following the launch of a coordinated smear campaign to paint King as a racist and a white nationalist.
The poll also shows that 74 percent of voters side with King following his alleged statements in the New York Times, which caused Congressional Republicans to join Democrats and throw him under the bus with a censure vote. Only 15 percent of Iowa voters take the media’s side, showing what little credibility they have in the Heartland.
“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization—how did that language become offensive?” King said, in a quote that was taken out of context. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”
King boasts a 72 percent approval rating among voters, according to the poll. His staunchly pro-life, pro-wall stances have earned him the respect of the people, and the fact that he is a common target of the fake news media only seems to further enhance his already impressive record.
“These poll results mirror what I am seeing on the ground,” Rep. King said in a press release about the poll. “Republicans in the 4th District are overwhelmingly choosing to stand with me as the only proven and tested conservative in this race. Voters know where I stand, they know I tell them the unflinching truth, and they know my record of effectively advancing our shared Iowa values in Congress.”
“Conservatives understand that President Trump needs consistent allies like me to fight off an illegitimate impeachment effort fueled by Fake News media narratives. These impressive poll results show I am the only candidate they trust to boldly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with President Trump in the face of the constant barrage of attacks from Democrats and their Never Trump, open-borders allies,” he added.
King is in this fight for the long haul and appears emboldened by the amount of flak he has taken as a result of standing for the MAGA agenda. He intends to fight for Western values until his dying breath.
“Iowa voters are clearly wise to the Leftist media’s smear tactics. They know I am a target for supporting President Trump’s ‘America-First’ agenda. They can’t stand the thought of allowing pro-America, pro-borders, pro-Ag, pro-Life, pro-Rule of Law, pro-Western Civilization elected officials to stay in office because they are representing mainstream, common sense, America loving citizens. The political establishment is in a frenzy to defeat our campaign in the 2020 primary, but this poll overwhelmingly demonstrates our rock solid support in the district,” King said.
While establishment Republicans, anti-American Democrats, and fake news hacks may have been quick to eulogize King’s political career following a year of bad headlines, it appears that rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders
The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.
The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.
The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:
U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.
“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”
… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.
Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.
Media: Jim @Acosta to @wolfblitzer: "A source present for this briefing … said the information relayed to lawmakers made it clear #Russia has already begun interfering in the 2020 election … Asked whether the information presented was alarming,' the source said, 'Very.'" pic.twitter.com/CFmcjI9d2w

So Russia wants a race between Sanders and Trump. They probably want Tulsi Gabbard as Bernie’s running mate. And no question they will help Moscow Mitch get re-elected. What a monumental mess Trump has made of America! He will let this happen. Putin’s USA. https://t.co/WiNtTOYK4T

So @BernieSanders was told by U.S. government officials that Russia has been working to help him win the Democratic primary, and he said NOTHING publicly??? This is OUTRAGEOUS! How is it any different than what Trump has done?? 😠

This should not be a surprise to anyone, is consistent with their enduring strategy & mirrors the analysis of @FPRI #FIE2020 team “Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign” https://t.co/eO0DocweEE

.@BernieSanders says he was briefed by federal officials one month ago that Russia was boosting his campaign.
Why did he never tell the American people? pic.twitter.com/xqG7aDWRmk

As I reported in 2016, Russian state media had two candidates they were rooting for: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. They were the candidates that, in the Kremlin's view, would 1) create the most chaos in the establishment, thereby weakening the U.S., 2) be friendlier to Russia.

And why didn’t Bernie Sanders tell us a month ago that Russia was trying to help his campaign? Did we not have a right to know this?
Or to know about his heart attack?
Or to see his medical records?
Or to see his tax returns that he hid for four years?
See a trend? https://t.co/zmLVrvKnc4

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.
“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.
Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.
“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.
The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
