Republican Turncoat Justin Amash Announces Fringe Libertarian Party Presidential Campaign

He could take more votes from Joe Biden than from Trump.

Published

Former Republican Congressman Justin Amash announced he’s forming an exploratory committee to seek the Libertarian Party’s nomination for President on Tuesday, confirming that the hardcore Never Trumper will run as a de facto quixotic candidate for the office.

Amash’s campaign may offer the Michigan congressman an easy way out of an embarrassing reelection defeat. Amash abandoned the Republican Party after embracing the Democratic Party’s impeachment sham, but polling from before his support of impeachment showed the libertarian trailing handily to Republican primary challengers seeking to replace him. His presidential campaign may provide him with a convenient excuse to avoid a reelection campaign he’s almost certain to lose.

Amash was slammed by figures across the political aisle for his exploratory committee announcement, including members of the House Freedom Caucus he once served with before turning his back on the Republican Party.

However, his announcement of a Libertarian Party presidential campaign may have riled up more animosity from Joe Biden Democrats than Republicans. Few members of the GOP, a party that overwhelmingly supports President Trump, want to vote for a hardcore libertarian ideologue, whereas voter enthusiasm for Joe Biden is the lowest that has been seen in decades for a Democratic presidential nominee.

The initial link to Amash’s campaign website showed a login page after he tweeted it out, an embarrassing technical difficulty.

Amash could very well siphon away more votes from voters who would otherwise vote for Joe Biden, perhaps implicitly aiding President Trump’s re-election prospects in states such as Michigan. Stringent #VoteBlue Democrats typically accustomed to demanding that Bernie Sanders supporters declare an oath of fealty to the party establishment turned their cannons on Amash after the announcement, making it clear they weren’t pleased with his third party campaign.

True irony would be the hardcore libertarian implicitly aiding the President’s reelection after embracing a dubious impeachment hoax over foreign aid to Ukraine. Amash is by far the most prominent figure seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination.

POLL: President Donald Trump Leads Joe Biden Nationally, 48% to 46%

The President has come roaring back.

A new poll conducted by British newspaper the Sunday Express in conjunction with the Democracy Institute reveals that President Donald Trump is leading Democratic challenger Joe Biden by a margin of 48% to 46%. The national poll was conducted last week.

Perhaps more significantly, the poll reveals that President Trump is handily leading Biden in the most crucial of swing states, leading with voters in the states of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by a handy margin of 48% to 43%. If such polls translate to election day victory margins, President Trump could secure an even greater election night victory than he did in 2016, taking 309 votes in the electoral college by flipping Minnesota red.

Democracy Institute Director Patrick Basham claims that the poll’s methodology accounts for a population of ‘shy’ Trump supporters who are reluctant to respond to polls from corporate mainstream media networks. The poll shows a wide enthusiasm gap in the President’s favor, but Basham claims that 71% of planned Trump supporters are cautionary about revealing that they publicly support the President’s campaign for re-election.

Voters describe the economy as the most important issue in the election, with coronavirus containment coming in second. A majority of voters currently disapprove of President Trump’s coronavirus response in the poll, suggesting the President has room to grow his base of support by making progress in halting the coronavirus pandemic.

The poll is the latest suggesting that the presidential election is far more competitive than methodologically challenged polls from corporate media outlets suggest.
