Today was supposed to be the day that the Democrats emerged as a new and invigorated party, offering innovative solutions to problems ailing the American people. Or so they wanted you to believe.
Judging by Google Trends, a service that measures the tech giant’s search results, the Democrats’ new agenda was an attention flop.
As of 5:00 PM EST, Google Trends measured there were a whopping 21 to 1 for searches of Jared Kushner vs. Democrats’ new economic agenda ‘A Better Deal’.
A Google Trends comparison shows ‘Kid Rock Senate’ at 59 and ‘A Better Deal’ at just 5.
Can you say FLOP?
The political world is buzzing since Kid Rock announced his bid for Senate in Michigan. The Gateway Pundit broke news that the rock star was leading Democrat Debbie Stabenow.
According to a new poll, Kid Rock is leading in a hypothetical match-up against challenger, Debbie Stabenow.
On July 12th, 2017 Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, confirmed his intention to run for the United States Senate seat in Michigan. His announcement sent a shock through the media and many dismissed it as a cheap publicity stunt. While Ritchie has yet to file his official documentation to seek the office, he stated his intentions on Twitter and pushed back at his critics, saying “the press is wrong.”
Debbie Stabenow is the incumbent Democratic Michigan senator who is scheduled to defend her seat in 2018. Ritchie intends to run as a Republican who would likely have to defeat a crowded primary field to challenge Stabenow.
To gauge Ritchie’s chances in a hypothetical general election matchup, Delta Analytica conducted a poll from July 14-18 of 668 Michigan residents. Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow. These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends. The relatively large, 44% , number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.
The unveiling of ‘A Better Deal’ was an awkward affair, with divides in the party on full display.
NTK Network reports:
A woman who attended Monday’s event asked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) why “A Better Deal” didn’t include new Glass–Steagall legislation.
Schumer seemed annoyed by the woman’s question, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who was standing behind Schumer, could hardly contain her excitement.
“We are going to talk about some of the issues dealing with Wall Street and short termism and all these things in future months. Today we unveiled these three issues,” Schumer responded as Warren danced a brief jig behind him.
One has to wonder if Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff, who has done 123 interviews worth 14 hours of footage, spent more time talking about issues people care about, instead of Russia, if people would be more interested in what they have to stay.
Washington Free Beacon reports:
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) has done 123 national television interviews totaling more than 14 hours of air time since January, according to a White House tracking report.
The report comes on the heels of President Donald Trump attacking Schiff on Monday for his frequent TV appearances. The vast majority of them have been on cable networks CNN and MSNBC, although Schiff has also done interviews on Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, Comedy Central, and HBO.
Trump tweeted, “Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into “Russia,” spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!”
