CPAC Straw Poll – The Common Sense Insurgency Crosses Another Threshold…

It is customary on the final day of CPAC for the results of a straw poll to be announced.  One year ago CPAC attendees were predominantly members of the #NeverTrump variety, they even had a plan to walk out of CPAC if candidate Donald Trump delivered a speech.

Despite the campaign of CONpac #NeverTrump to destroy the candidate, as a result of the overwhelming ‘outsider’ ‘grassroots’ ‘common sense’ deplorable electorate, candidate Donald Trump is now President Donald Trump.

1,447 attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference participated in the straw poll.  Today CPAC released the results:

  • 86 percent of those polled approve of the job Donald Trump is doing as president.
  • 80 percent believe President Trump is realigning the conservative movement.
  • 90 percent approve of President Trump’s policies and agenda.
  • 94 percent said they approved of Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.
  • 91 percent support Trump policy cutting off federal funds to “sanctuary” cities.
  • 67 percent say republicans in congress should be doing more to support Trump.
  • 75 percent want Mitch McConnell to end filibuster rule to nominate Gorsuch.
  • 81 percent approve of President Trump immigration executive order (travel ban).
  • 70 percent want Trump to continue using Twitter to fight back against MSM

The Vichy Republican ConPAC Bastille has been defeated.

Gadsden_flagThe flags of the old guard GOPe have been removed, the liberty flag of the Trump movement how waves atop of the spire.  The Republican Party is now officially the party of Donald Trump.

It is safe to say that #NeverTrump has been completely destroyed.  However, it becomes critical to ensure that the voices behind #NeverTrump are kept out of the Trump movement.   Perhaps the day will come when National Review dedicates an entire publication to saying: “We Were Wrong“, but we won’t hold our breath.

    “Forgotten no more.” Kind of ironic on a day that the dimocrats chose the man who’s last job should have been a slam dunk for a dimocrat, Secretary of Labor, to lead their party. What was he able to accomplish? He lost labor to the Republicans. Nice work, Tom. Like President Trump said, congratulations to both you and the Republican party

      Perez as labor secretary made it all about race and Identity politics and helped to lose the white working class for the Democrats. He will obviously continue on that path as DNC chairman, hoping that the change in demographics from continued illegal immigration will change the elections results in the future.

        I think Perez over Ellison is emblematic of the DNC discarding Black Americans and going “Full Mexican” now that the white working class has finally barfed up the blue pill. Perez puts a Hispanic face on the front of the DNC (who knows whose face, or hand, is really in the back of the DNC?) and the their sound track goes from Rap to Latin Polka.

    “The flags of the old guard GOPe have been removed, the liberty flag of the Trump movement now waves atop of the spire. The Republican Party is now officially the party of Donald Trump.”

    Not so fast. 55+ years of Republican equivocation, dissimulation, obsequious leftward truckling (me-tooism), connivance in the dispossession of the traditional American demographic, and “seemingly inexplicable” stupidity is not over.

    * 67 percent say republicans in congress should be doing more to support Trump.
    * 70 percent want Trump to continue using Twitter to fight back against MSM.
    * 75 percent want Mitch McConnell to end filibuster rule to nominate Gorsuch.

    #NeverTrump is not destroyed. At least 25 – 33% are waiting to do the GOPe’s bidding when opportunity presents itself. Traitors and summer soldiers are embedded within the Trump administration.

    * 81 percent approve of President Trump immigration executive order (travel ban).

    Only 19% disagree with the travel ban. 81% agree with it because it is “safe” to do so – that is, there is a “non-racist” defense for the ban.

    How many Sea-Packers would disagree with a genuine end to third world immigration?

    Uh huh. Thought so.

    AWESOME job MR. PRESIDENT by ANY measure!!!

    READ CAREFULLY:
    Also, I would propose that, in HOUSE and SENATE DISTRICTS NATIONALLY where there are DEMOCRATIC INCUMBENTS up for re-election in 2018 & 2020, and we don’t have to PROTECT a “TRUMP FRIENDLY” Republican SEAT, that a few of us REPUBLICAN VOTERS, IN THOSE DISTRICTS, change our PARTY AFFILIATION over to DEMOCRAT to help move a more FRIENDLY CHOICE into OFFICE, in the PRIMARIES AND GENERAL ELECTIONS in those districts!

    Just a thought but as illustrated above with a clever strategy “WE THE PEOPLE” can VOTE AMERICA back into a CONSTITUTIONAL, CONSERVATIVE and RIGHTEOUS “WE THE PEOPLE” centrist construct to HELP OUR POTUS MR TRUMP DUMP those thieves, miscreants, socialist leaning scoundrels, #NEVERTRUMP, and, GLOBALIST SCUM embedded within the system for at least another generation or two.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA and OUR PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump!!!
    AMERICA FIRST ALWAYS! #MAGA

    Sundance, I have the highest respect for you and your willingness to punch the smug condescending elites in their noses and and figuratively kick them in their points south. I have indeed become a devoted fan and glory in the opportunity to share your classic “An Open Letter to Jonah Goldberg” as often as good manners allows. By the way, I do believe that Goldberg is, politically, a dead man walking in conservative influence, thanks to your brilliant slapdown.

    I do, however, think that DJT’s election was not accomplished “despite” the NT’ers, but was to some significant extent aided by them, I mean, seriously, can you name a single NT’er who exerts even a moderately strong influence on or for Conservatives? Who, in fact, does not get tuned out by Conservatives the same way that the “openly aligned” progressives are?

    Keep up the good work!

      Sorry, gepaza. Respectfully, you are very wrong. I have been loathing most of those who called themselves “conservatives” for years. They never really argued for limited government, against voter fraud,etc. — it was all lip service, including the so-called radio personalities. They supported the globalists in every election — that is why these vermin infest the House and Senate. They were all bought and paid for.

      There were a few — Andrew Breitbart, CTH, RealClimateScience, etc.

      So many sites I used to visit all caved. A site like AmericanThinker has usually served up pablum.

      How could those who called themselves “conservatives” have supported Ted Crews? Any due diligence could have found out that he is a plant of the globalists. He probably is/was not even qualified to run for Texas Senator. His papers are hidden/forbidden/never-to-be-seen. Would a real “conservative” permit anyone (like 0 – concealed/sealed papers) to run anywhere in the United States? Please open your eyes.

      Thank you, Sundance, for being aware from the beginning. Yours is a “conservative” definition that I can join.

        I call him Canadian Ted as it is more descriptive……I was banned from AT for “my own safety” they said as it got more infected by Cruzbots….almost as bad as a Dem in their non critical thinking skills….many say that since the leaders of the “conservatives” say he was qualified it was good enough for them

        pyromancer, either I have very poorly written my comment or you read it wrong. In my own wandering style, I thought I was saying exactly the same thing that you did, except where it concerns Ted Cruz. You obviously don’t like him. I do. So we disagree on that. I wonder, though, which of these low-life elite progressive bastards was pushing for Cruz.

        I did not, and still don’t, like a lot of President Trum’s style, but I sure have learned to love most of his actions. If he keeps going like this, we may become America again
