New polling suggests that Libertarian Party Presidential candidate Justin Amash takes away more votes from Joe Biden than from Donald Trump, suggesting the appeal for a hardcore libertarian ideologue among Republican voters is slim to non-existent.
The Monmouth polling shows Trump polling two points closer to Joe Biden when Justin Amash is included as a poll option, a margin that was the approximate size of the popular vote in 2016.
Here’s the first round of polling, listing just Joe Biden and Donald Trump as general election choices:
And when Amash is included as a possible option:
The polling is far from definitive, and it’s not uncommon for presidential election polling the summer before the general election involving an incumbent to show the challenger leading. But it does appear that Amash has far greater appeal to nominal Democratic voters than to Republicans, whose party he abandoned in the name of defending Russian collusion conspiracies.
It’s possible that the appeal of Amash’s hardcore ideological libertarianism has waned in the eyes of the Republican voters. The former Republican came to Congress in the era of the 2010 Tea Party ascendancy, a movement that has since been surpassed in the Republican Party by Donald Trump’s nationalist ‘MAGA’ ideals.
Some Democrats have reacted with fury at the notion of Amash’s Libertarian Party campaign, demanding strict obedience of any nominal anti-Trump voter and fearing the stringent libertarian could “steal” votes from Joe Biden, a candidate with lower recorded enthusiasm levels than any Democratic presidential nominee has ever had.
If Amash has been secretly hoping to become an anti-Trump ‘spoiler’ with the ability to hand the election to Democrats, the Monmouth poll suggesting his appeal is greater to liberals might mean his vanity presidential campaign is essentially pointless.
Democrats Push to Save Bankrupt Postal Service in Order to Promote Democrat Mail-in Voting Scheme
They are setting up the steal.
Democrats are shilling to save the bankrupt and destitute U.S. Postal Service (USPS) so mail-in voting can replace physical voting in November’s presidential election.
Started by left-wing comedian Samantha Bee, liberals are participating in the #MailedIt campaign to encourage Americans to mail in their voting ballots rather than going in and actually submitting their ballots on election day in traditional fashion. They are targeting the Trump administration, which has warned of the potential for fraud because of mail-in voting.
“The government is leveraging the pandemic to privatize mail deliveries,” said Samantha Bee. “President Trump and his team of vote suppressors don’t want your vote to count. He is adding the USPS to a long list of things he is afraid of, like books, stairs, and strong wind. I’m using my voice and resources to activate our fan base to enact real change because if we lose the post office I’m going to finally have to learn to use my email and I do NOT remember my password.”
Bee and other liberals have been using the hashtag all day in an attempt to rally support around USPS.

It is worth noting that this political campaign is being promoted with advertisements over Twitter, which is an apparent violation of their terms of service.
With mail-in voting being used in recent elections due to the COVID-19 pandemic, instances of alleged fraud are already emerging. Big League Politics reported on a handful of Democrats being charged with ballot tampering in New Jersey during an election conducted entirely by mail-in voting:
Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.
Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.
The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.
Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.
Although they’re rarely enforced, New Jersey laws criminalizing election fraud have strict penalties, and it’s possible that the men could face prison sentences of up to ten years if they’re convicted of the second-degree felonies of which they’re charged.
Democrats are gleefully opening Pandora’s Box for abuse with their push to prop up the USPS and enable widespread mail-in voting.
