President Trump - popularity

| No Comments

Heh - run against President Trump and his policies and see what happens.
Two stories - first? Politico - April 13, 2021:

Meet the Texas veteran who could blaze a trail for the anti-Trump GOP
Criticizing Donald Trump is considered a death sentence for Republican candidates. But Michael Wood’s betting that it will be his lifeline.

Wood is campaigning on an explicitly anti-Trump platform as he competes with 22 other candidates in a special election to fill the seat of the late Rep. Ron Wright (R-Texas), who represented a rapidly diversifying district in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs. Wood’s risky strategy centers on a belief there is a healthy slice of the GOP ready to move on from Trump after Jan. 6 — a proposition that will be tested at the ballot box next month.

Wood, a combat veteran and small business owner, has embraced his political identity as a Trump antagonist. He has publicly needled the former president on Twitter, recently declaring that “I’d rather fight for my country and the Constitution on a shoestring budget than kiss that man’s ring at Mar-a-Lago.”

So he has some good points - veteran, business owner.  He is just anti-Trump.
The People spoke - from CNS News - May 3rd, 2021:

Trump-Endorsed Republican Is Top Vote-Getter in Texas Special Election
Susan Wright, the widow of U.S. Rep. Ron Wright, was the top voter-getter in Saturday's crowded race for Texas's 6th congressional seat.

And Mr. Wood?

One of the eleven GOP candidates, Michael Wood, ran on an anti-Trump platform. He received only 3.19 percent of the vote.

The politicians are refusing to listen to their constituency to their own detriment. Pure schadenfreude.
