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.

    IMNSHO, #6 is the real benchmark of President Trump’s early success ! Over two-thirds of CPAC attendees are kicking RINO/N-T’ers a**** ! Long past time the “GOP Establishment” to get aboard the Trump Train ! Or be left standing in the wind on an empty platform !

    At the first rough spot in the road you’ll see about 20-25% of these former NeverTrumpers jumping off the train, declaring themselves free agents, and taking yet more pot shots at Trump. They just like being on the winning team. Do NOT throw away your old list of NT’s since it will be helpful when deciding who is reliable and who is an opportunist. Just as a rule of thumb.

    I have read all the dozens of wonderful comments here about our nation’s health insurance and delivery structure.

    What they tell me is we’re ALL OVER THE MAP on this complex issue, so it comes as no surprise that our elected representatives are, too. (You’ll recall that NONE of them voted for the ACA’s passage.)

    What I do know is this industry encompasses 16% of our nation’s economy, and is comprised of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of entities and technicians.

    One way or another they are all delving into the mysteries of the human body, about which we still know relatively little.

    So my inclination is to TRUST TRUMP on this one, whether we get what we consider a satisfactory reform or not.

    He has the requisite knowledge, logic, common sense and standing to tackle this dilemma without fear or favor, and I believe he will resolve it the best that anyone can.

  6. Yeah I’m not gonna care until these GOPe dopes are looking through the window, and the door is locked to keep them out. These traitors made the Reagan Revolution into nothing but nostalgia and fail. These Romneys, and Rockefellers, and Bushes need to get out and stay out, or politics as usual will be decided at the street level.

    My main takeaway from these results and from being here the entire weekend was the complete absence of the Ron/Rand Paul and Milo wing of the party, and the near total absence of the Bush/Romney/Lil Marco establishment wing too.

    The final panel today does not appear to be up on the ACU youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ACUConservativeUSA/videos) yet, but was a discussion about “the forgotten man” by a group including Robert Davi, Salena Zito and Rick Santorum…the best clip I can find so far is here:

    Definitely worth your time if/when they post the whole thing!

    “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.

    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.

        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
