Trump rally in Georgia is GOP’s last hope

The numbers are looking shockingly bad in Georgia for GOP senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

Their only hope? That President Trump can fire up the Republican base and avert disaster on election day. 

As Fox reports:

The final early voting numbers released by state officials indicate that more than 3 million people – or nearly two-fifths (39.3%) of all registered voters in Georgia – have already cast a ballot in the election. That’s well more than half of the record-setting 4.9 million total voters in the state who cast a ballot in the general election.

Democrats are optimistic about the chances of challengers Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock defeating Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler based on the early-vote numbers. The figures show Black voters – a crucial base of the Democratic Party – making up a larger percentage of the early-voting electorate than in November’s general election. And they show higher turnout in Democratic congressional districts than in their GOP counterparts.

That’s making Democrats less nervous about a repeat of the usual voter turnout drop among their supporters in past Georgia runoff elections. And it means that Republicans will have to work harder to get out their voters in Tuesday’s elections, contests that are all about getting out the base rather than trying to persuade undecided voters.

So with things looking bad for Republicans, they’re turning to President Trump again for help. Even establishmentarian Karl Rove is pinning his hopes on Trump.

“President Trump’s visit to Dalton for a rally Monday night Jan. 4 should help drive GOP turnout that Tuesday in a big way,” Rove said in his memo, which was first reported by Politico and also obtained by Fox News.

Longtime Georgia-based Republican consultant Chip Lake told Fox News on Monday that “it’s critical that we have a big Election Day turnout. In November, Election Day turnout was about 20% of the total turnout. I think for this election we need it in the 25-30% range.”

“Nobody turns out the base better than the president and our hope is that his trip to Georgia will turn out the base tomorrow that we need to in order to make sure that Kelly and David win these races,” Lake emphasized.

No matter what they say, no one can talk to the Republican base like Trump. Remember that when they try to argue that the GOP would be better off without him.

My developer is trying to persuade me to
move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked
the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a
year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
