Midterms 2018 - Dems Furious As Green Party Splits Ohio 12 Votes (Video)

|||The Cleveland Courrier |||

POTUS can claim victory as his chosen candidate Mr Troy Balderson, a former Ironman race competitor, won the special election on Ohio’s 12 district, leading many on the Democratic side in utter disbelief as they predicted their candidate, Mr Danny O'Connor, a county elected official, would win by a wide margin as some polls had indicated beforehand.

Mr Trump flew into Ohio over the weekend and campaigned on behalf of Mr Balderson in a crowded high school gymnasium. He stated: "Balderson's really tough. He's really smart. He never stops working."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36. That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov.</p>&mdash; Donald J.

"It's Ohio's 12th district, and he's going to hopefully be here a long time."

Mr Balderson gave a victory speech earlier on, thanking the US President for his support: “America is on the right path, and we’re going to keep it going that way.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">RT FoxNews: .HolmesJosh: &quot;We&#39;re watching a [Democratic Party] that is drifting so far to the left that it&#39;s almost unrecognizable.&quot; <a href="https://t.co/GXoWbokxWL">pic.twitter.com/GXoWbokxWL</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FakeNews?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FakeNews</a></p>&mdash; Lisa Faham Selzer (@faham_lisa) <a href="https://twitter.com/faham_lisa/status/1027068467487432704?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

With Mr Balderson getting the backing of US President Donald Trump and his loyal base going out to vote, Democratic voters, whom polls indicated would win easily, in the end lost out to themselves as part of their voters chose for a fringe candidate, Mr Joe Manchik of the Green Party, instead.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">…..Congratulations to Troy Balderson on a great win in Ohio. A very special and important race!</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1027031293220061184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

The online reaction to the astonishing loss was not one of remorse, but rather one of anger towards the Green Party.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">741 vote lead to Balderson (R)<br>1102 votes for GREEN PARTY candidate who never had a chance<br><br>As always, FUCK THE GREEN PARTY VOTERS who screw it up for the Democrats</p>&mdash; Red (@Redpainter1) <a href="https://twitter.com/Redpainter1/status/1027013389736968192?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

On 28 June, some 6 weeks ago, I wrote an opinion piece for thegoldwater.com predicting that the progressive vote could split the Democrats if they weren’t careful, after the upsetting victory of Ms Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York over Congress' 4-th ranked Democrat Mr Joe Crowley.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I&#39;m so tired of the Green Party ruining every election and their superiority complex. Don&#39;t people realize how high the stakes are? Green stands for one thing: Getting Republicans Elected Every November.</p>&mdash; Joshua Roberts (@josh_the_red) <a href="https://twitter.com/josh_the_red/status/1027016979532664833?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Back then it was already clear that the Democrats were too surprised to know what was going on.

Tonight, the number of references to the George Bush 2000 Presidential win as well as the clear ‘fuck you Green party’ on the Democratic side prove two things: firstly that if Democrats really want to deliver a so-called blue wave in November they should pick a side (far left or centre but nothing in between) and, secondly, that progressives will prefer their own candidates over the political dinosaurs that the Democratic establishment wants them to vote for.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">ATTENTION GREEN PARTY THIS is for YOU. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 <a href="https://t.co/hKGwyF39lq">pic.twitter.com/hKGwyF39lq</a></p>&mdash; Debra Messing (@DebraMessing) <a href="https://twitter.com/DebraMessing/status/1027027841739673602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

If not, that so called blue wave will not materialize. Even with the MSM being 90% negative on POTUS, his voters will go out and make a difference.

Good analysis. Dems need to choose instead of bitch about losing.

A split was bound to happen eventually, because the Democrat party has been a collection of 14+ Special Interest Political Groups for the last 30 years.

Many of that 14+ DO NOT Like Each Other and/or have Agendas in conflict with other SIG's.

eg. LGBT vs. the DNC Agenda of PRO-Radical Islamic Refugees migration and acceptance of Sharia Law in the USA.

eg. Socialists vs. Non-Socialists SIG's. (How many Millionaires and Billionaires run the DNC now)

eg. The still Pro-America vs. Anti-America radical SIG's (ANTI-FA, BLM, etc..) supported and funded by the Liberal Socialist DNC leaders.

Likely the Green Party figured it out,

It stands a better chance of being heard and getting what it wants by being a separate Political party.

Now the DINO's and RINO's will kiss their Butts for the extra votes and reach a political vote swap from time to time.
