Check out the latest episode of The Dixie Dems, the Lean to the Left podcast episode that takes an irreverent look at politics in the South, as well as across the U.S, featuring Arthur Hill of North Carolina, Robert Thompson of Georgia, and myself in South Carolina.
In this episode we take a look at how the Republicans are at it again with horrible abortion laws that are being passed in many red states, a right-wing effort in SC to restrict drag shows, developments in NC and GA involving the entertainment industry, and offer our thoughts regarding the GOP presidential sweepstakes.
Will Trump succeed in garnering the Republican nomination despite his legal challenges or will someone else emerge as the GOP standard bearer. What if something happens to Biden? Who would the Democrats turn to?
There was a CBS News/YouGov poll just published that showed Trump with a 30- point margin over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, with some additional revealing findings:
Even though election deniers cost the GOP dearly in the 2022 election, this poll shows that a large majority of Republican-leaning voters continue to believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump and they want candidates who agree.
While DeSantis is trying to claim Trump has electability problems, this poll shows that 75 percent of Republican-leaners say Trump’s supposed 2020 victory is sufficient reason to vote for him again, and 84 percent said Trump would beat Joe Biden. Only 38 percent said Trump could lose to Biden and that’s a reason to vote against him.
Sixty percent said they prefer a candidate who does not comment about the January 6 insurrection, but 24 percent they support a candidate who supports those who entered the Capitol.
Trump’s message of retribution against his enemies is supported by 32 percent of Republican-leaners, even if it’s at the expense of getting things done.
Only 7 percent of Republican-leaners want a candidate who criticizes Trump.
All of this and more is on tap in this episode. Check it out:
