As Rust Belt states begin to turn against President Donald Trump, his campaign is desperately looking to campaign in other states to replace the losses, drawing laughter and mockery from GOP strategist John Weaver.
Weaver worked on campaigns for former Ohio Governor John Kasich, the late-former President George H. W. Bush and the late-Senator John McCain, so he knows when a campaign is looking desperate.
A new Quinnipiac poll shows Trump losing to six Democratic 2020 candidates by at least five points, with former Vice-President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) leading by even wider margins.
And more bad news is coming out of Rust Belt states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and North Carolina, where voters are starting to sour on Trump in response to his reckless trade wars, disaster response, and his bad behavior in general.
It’s a toxic combination that has become exhausting, resulting in voters looking for a change.
Now the Trump campaign is considering an effort to compete in states like Nevada, New Mexico and even Oregon in the solid blue Pacific Northwest, leading Weaver to point out how desperate Trump and his team must be if they are thinking about campaigning in these states, which Democrats easily carried in 2016.
The reason the low travelers at the Trump “HQ” are throwing out darts about competing (LOL) in Oregon, New Mexico, New Hampshire, etc is because Michigan, PA, North Carolina and others are hardening against this insane fool of a “president.” #Desperate #DiggingForAPony

Trump’s trade wars have harmed farmers across the country and have resulted in thousands of manufacturing jobs being lost, 40,000 in one industry alone. Clearly, people are reaching their breaking point and have come to realize that Trump is not fighting for them at all like he promised he would. Instead, he only cares about helping himself, and now it’s backfiring on him.
