Republican Bloodbath Discussed On Don’t Back Down — Just got back from One Bala Plaza guesting on WWDB’s Don’t Back Down show with Stan Cascio, Andy Teitelman and Liz Diehl. Topic was yesterday’s (Nov. 7) Republican bloodbath. Fellow guests included the sagacious Gary Heasley of ChescoUnited and the tenacious Josh Prince of PrinceLaw.
The show airs 1-3 p.m., Wednesdays on WWDB 860 AM which can also be streamed on line.
We hear the guest Nov. 22 will be Joe Guzzardi who is one of our frequent contributors.
Republican Bloodbath Was Not Vote Fraud — There will be a temptation to blame yesterday’s, Nov. 7, Democratic victory on vote fraud.
I’m a poll worker and the Democrat turnout in my Republican precinct in Delaware County, Pa. was overwhelming.
I watched in real time registered Democrat after Democrat sign their names in the book then go to the booths to fill their ballots.
GOP turnout was about normal for a municipal election.
Republicans eked out in-person wins in most of the county races but by minuscule margins and actually lost district attorney race here.
Yes, the excellent Beth Stefanide-Miscichowski fell three short against the intolerable and incompetent “Missy” Stollsteimer.
And this was just the in-person voting in which 266 were cast.
There were 37 mail-in ballots –including mine — and they skew heavily D.
This makes it worse.
The precinct has about 630 registered voters.
So why the bloodbath?
The issues for the Democrats were Trump and abortion. They shouldn’t be particularly winning issues considering that the guy in the White House now is the walking disaster named Joe Biden, and that very few of us want to see human beings with beating pulses killed at will and by right.
The messaging, however, painting Trump as an extremist was not refuted nor was an explanation offered as to why so many think abortion is a bad thing that should be rare, as opposed to something easy to get and celebrated.
