A recent poll has indicated that Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) is crushing incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) by 23 points, as the unelected appointee is hemorrhaging support after being accused of insider trading.
Battleground Connect conducted a survey throughout the state of Georgia from March 30 to April 1, asking about which candidate the respondents support in this year’s special election for the U.S. Senate. In addition to Loeffler and Collins, respondents also mentioned at least five other individuals as their preferred candidate in the race.
Collins devastated Loeffler in the new poll, receiving 36 percent of the support from Georgia voters. Loeffler only received 13 percent of the support. In the previous poll, Collins had a mere eight point lead over Loeffler. He now has accumulated 70 percent of the support from Republican voters, compared to Loeffler’s paltry 20 percent.
In a comparison of Collins’ level of support against the leading Democrat in the race, Collins beats Democrat Raphael Warnock by a margin of 49 percent to 36 percent. Loeffler is actually losing to Warnock by a margin of 40 percent to 41 percent in the poll.
Loeffler’s unfavorable ratings have grown to an incredible 55 percent, with Georgia voters rejecting the former Mitt Romney super-donor. This may be due to a recent scandal in which Loeffler was exposed for selling stock after receiving privileged information about the coronavirus pandemic at an exclusive Senate briefing.
Big League Politics reported on Loeffler’s dirty dealings that have been compared to insider trading by many observers:
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.
She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.
“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.
Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.
She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.
The residents of Georgia are getting to know Loeffler, who was a relative unknown before her appointment to the Senate, and they do not like what they seeing. Collins is the prohibitive favorite heading into November’s special election.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
