President Donald Trump’s approval ratings in Dixie are moving up.

A new NBC News|SurveyMonkey online poll reveals that 54 percent of voters in the South approve of Trump’s presidency so far.

This survey of voters in 11 southern states revealed that 38 percent of voters said they “strongly approve” of Trump’s administration, while 16 percent said they “somewhat approve.” This is slightly higher than September of last year, when his approval rating was at 52 percent.

These numbers are also higher than Trump’s national approval rating. NBC News reported last week that Trump’s national approval rating had risen to 48 percent.

There was considerable variation in Trump’s approval ratings. In Alabama, Trump has a 60 percent approval rating. On the other hand, 48 percent approve of the Trump administration in Georgia.

Southerners are content with the state of the economy. 72 percent of respondents stated that the Trump economy is “very good” or “fairly good.”

More Southerners even think that race relations are improving in their states. Twenty percent said they’re improving, while 14 percent believed so back in September. The number of people who said relations are worsening dropped substantially, going from 44 percent in September to 34 percent in the most recent poll. 44 percent claimed that race relations are “about the same.”

51 percent of voters in Mississippi said they would like to see the Supreme Court strike down Roe v. Wade. Earlier this year Republican Governor Phil Bryant signed into law a bill prohibiting abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected.

This poll was conducted from July 2 to July 16 in states like Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Despite the media hand-wringing, Trump is uniting people across the spectrum. At the very least, he is still maintaining his support in the South, a region many said he would not win during the Republican primaries due to Trump supposedly not having bona fide social conservative credentials.

Trump’s strong stances against the media and his refusal to kowtow to defense industries on countries such as Iran have made him popular nationwide.

Based on these numbers, the South should be a lock for Trump.

The real electoral battles will be in the Midwest, where Trump shocked the world in 2016 when he pulled off victories in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
