Midterm Election Polls Show Trump Influence Sinking Fast

Donald Trump has used his influence to convince hapless followers that he actually won the 2020 election. Now, his influence appears to be waning. Trump vowed revenge on Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who refused to go along with the Big Lie. Trump endorsed Kemp’s challenger, former Sen. David Perdue, but that doesn’t appear to be helping Perdue much.

According to a Fox News poll, Kemp is currently leading Perdue by 11 points in Georgia.

In the North Carolina Senate primary, Trump unexpectedly chose Rep. Ted Budd over longtime Republican Sen. Pat McCrory. Challenged by another primary candidate for the most conservative voters by Rep. Mark Walker, Budd does not appear to be faring any better than Perdue in Georgia.

According to POLITICO:

‘Trump earlier this year reiterated his support for Budd. He even sought to convince Walker to bow out of the race by dangling a House endorsement in an attempt to clear the field.’

In a must-watch race, Liz Cheney faces Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, who has also lagged behind in fundraising and in polls compared to Cheney. Hoping to change the rules, Trump backed a new process for voting in Wisconsin, but that hasn’t gone his way, either.

According to the Hill Reporter:

‘A bill that would have prevented what’s called ‘crossover voting’ was being considered in the state, with Donald Trump sending out missives encouraging the support of it — but the bill died in the House Tuesday, after the House Appropriations Committee recommended against passing it, and the deadline for voting on it passed.’
