Is Trump Losing His Swing Voters?

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele called President Trump’s recent rally in Wilkes-Barre, PA a “circus.” He believes because of this Trump will lose “swing voters.”

Steele stated, “Pennsylvania is a bellwether for a number of important races coming up this fall and the fact that the president is so narrowly playing to a base, that he feels good in that setting, he’s having fun, he’s riffing and cussing and doing all this and those folks are loving it. To Charlie’s point, the rest of the country, the independent voters, center/right Democrats, and Republicans are looking at this and going, ‘what is this all about?’ There is not an inclination right now, I think, Andrea, to empower that kind of mindset in Washington any longer and that’s why you see the numbers for the president dropping. That’s why you see the generic ballot for Republicans holding on to the Congress moving away from them. It’s because of moments like we saw last night.”

“I think, back to your point about swing voters, I think those swing voters are moving away from the Trump circus and focusing more on the fact that they want something a little bit different, and this ain’t it.”

    Wasnt he one of those type like Row the rino supporter .I can see why he might even go for Bill Kistol But Pres Trumps working for the country not the rinos

    Hey Mike, have you been listening to all those liberal politicians and their ideas for, and views of America? Seems to me, they are doing more to dissuade the swing voters than anything Trump is doing. But what else would we expect from a swamp rino.

      Of course. That’s who he (Steele) hangs with.

    Wasn’t Michael Steele saying similar things all the time President Trump was campaigning against Hillary Clinton? He’ll be proven as right now, as he was then. Let Trump be Trump, for this shows the American people that he is not a politician, but more like a construction worker that is rebuilding the USA, and his successes in the economy, as well as his foreign policy, proves what a great job he is doing, mainly because he is not a sleazy politician, but a man who says what he means, and means what he says, as he remembers to fulfill his promises, unlike most all politicians.

      Steele is a rino at heart; just another clone of karl rino-rove!

      • Randy131

        He is part of the establishment who is trying to save his position in that cabal.

    No way he is looking. Just listening to people more see him as a REAL MAN and NOT A POLITICIAN. He really cares about America. Steele loss the RINOs. Many of those we talked to are Hispanic, Blacks and many Whites that were not for him.

    Typical and expected comment from a dyed-in-the-wool Rino Republican. If anything is going to dissuade swing voters, it’s the fact that people like McConnell, Ryan, and McCain are still in office and being supported by the RNC. People are fed up with politics as usual and only want people in office who actually represent them – not those who keep listening to the main stream media, both so-called news reporting and the crackpots in the entertainment industry.

    • Darrell G. Walton

      All of the aforementioned RINOs are the main things subversively impeding MAGA!

    Trump”s approval among blacks has risen from 15% to 29% this year; that does not look like a losing number to me; [ Rasmussen data]

  • Barbara Johnson

    I think after seeing Trumps rally in the state of Pennsylvania that the left and socialists will lose they have nothing but hate for our president Trump and nothing of consequence to give the voters but higher taxes, taking away the tax breaks,and promoting a larger government that will eventually bankrupt America.

  • George T Horvat

    And he’s basing his opinion on what? Just saying something doesn’t make it so! Where’s the evidence? If it’s just his opinion then he should shut up!

  • Luzianagal

    Wishful thinking, Steele!! Have you looked at the crowds he brings in at his rallies, what Demo can do the same???….NONE, that’s who!!! If you haven’t done so yet, you might want to change your registration to Demo! I think you kinda failed at being the RNC Chairman! Remember the last few Repub candidates failed under you!!
