“The Democrats are trying to win 2020. They’re not going to win with the people that I see,” President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday outside the White House when explaining how the subpoenas against him are simply a Democrat strategy that he is fighting.
Trump is the front-runner in his re-election effort as Democrats struggle to find momentum in their crowded primary.

President Donald Trump matched the top two Democrat fundraising totals combined during the first quarter of 2019.
Vox reports: “Trump raised $30.3 million in the first quarter of this year — a number roughly equal to the amount raised by the top two fundraising Democrats, Bernie Sanders ($18.2 million) and Kamala Harris ($12 million), combined.
In an unusual move, Trump officially announced his reelection campaign just days after he was inaugurated, and it shows in his fundraising numbers. According to the New York Times, at this point in the 2012 presidential election cycle, Barack Obama — who launched his reelection campaign on April 4, 2011 — had less than $2 million in the bank. Trump, by contrast, currently has a war chest of $41 million.
Trump’s strong fundraising is also reflected in the numbers for the Republican National Committee, which raised $45.8 million in the first quarter. The Democratic National Committee lags well behind that pace and was $4.6 million in debt at the end of January. When Trump’s fundraising is combined with the RNC’s pro-Trump efforts, he has a total of $82 million.”
Vox passage ends
President Trump is on an epic winning streak since Robert Mueller concluded that he did not collude with the Russians, and the focus of Russia-related investigations shifted to the Democrats who cooked up the “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” plot to frame Trump.

A new “Battleground Poll” released Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service reveals that the majority of Americans approve of President Donald J. Trump’s job performance when it comes to the economy.
The poll of 1,000 Americans reveals that 58 per cent of Americans approve of President Trump’s job on the economy, while 57 per cent also approve of the president’s role in creating new jobs for the United States.
It also reveals that voter enthusiasm is already reaching fever pitch. Voters are already as excited to vote as they previously have been in the weeks and days before a major election with 82 per cent of voters saying they are already ready to vote..
Interestingly, while the poll reveals that President Trump is gradually increasing his overall approval rating, and is excelling with voters on specific issues, most voters do not feel the same when it comes to members of Congress.
More respondents trust President Trump to handle jobs, the economy, national security, and taxes than they trust Democrats in Congress.
Republican Congressmen enjoy similar numbers of approval. More respondents trust Republicans on issues including jobs, the economy, and national security than they do their Democrat counterparts.
Additionally, 67 per cent of respondents have an unfavorable opinion of Congress as a whole. Only 25 per cent of respondents have a favorable opinion of Congress.
It is also worth noting that the poll discovered President Trump’s approval and disapproval ratings have remained virtually constant since he joined the 2016 presidential race in June of 2015.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
