NJ Election Shows Cruz/Tea Party Strengthens GOP Even in Blue States
October 17, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield



The GOP panicked in its showdown with Obama Inc. over a fear of losing “moderate” voters. It has once again chosen to stand for nothing out of fear of standing for something that people don’t like.

How is that working out as a strategy? Badly.

n New Jersey, Cory Booker was the anointed candidate. He was unstoppable. The Obama of the Garden State. No one was even supposed to run against him.

And his opponent, Steve Lonegan, did all the things that he wasn’t supposed to do. He campaigned with Sarah Palin. Come on? Bringing Sarah Palin to a state where you can see Manhattan from your house? Crazy.

And he did it all while the media was running a national hate campaign comparing Cruz and the Tea Party to the new (Latino) Confederacy.

How did it work out? Not too badly.

Zitat
Democrat Cory Booker underperformed his showing in almost all the polls, and wound up winning by only 10.3 points. By contrast, Obama won New Jersey by 18 points just last November. At the same time, Democratic senator Robert Menendez cruised to a 19-point victory over a veteran moderate Republican state senator…


. . . .
In defeat, Lonegan won a higher percentage of the vote for U.S. Senate than any Republican in the Garden State has gotten in a dozen years.

I'd really like to think our ideas are attractive to the majority of Americans. If I am wrong I will not be the same for the rest of my life.

I suspect that while the percent is diminishing over time as a result of the impact of political correctness and massive numbers of unassimilated immigrants, the percent is still much larger than the MSM and political elite both R and D would like to admit. I also suspect this is the reason why manufactured crises and fear are being used to justify taking away our freedoms.
