Democrats are turning on the NeverTrump Lincoln Project/Mike Madrid for failure to deliver on promises

While the Chair of the California Republican party continues to allow Mike Madrid and others to be CRP delegates—so they can claim they are GOP officials supporting Biden, his Democrat friends are angry—he did not deliver for Joe and the Democrat Party.  Just as he did not deliver for Antonio Villaraigosa, the Democrat that ran for Governor in 2018.  Madrid is a founder of the Lincoln Project—a Democrat effort using Republicans to front the George Soros operation.

“Fuzzy Slippers of Legal Insurrection put it perfectly:

For some reason, Democrats thought that a venom-spitting gaggle of disgruntled, mean-spirited former Republicans was just the ticket to help them turn out Republican voters to beat the president.

The Lincoln Project’s belly flop on luring Republicans away was spectacular.

Trump actually garnered even more support from GOP voters than in 2016. Indeed, Edison Research exit polls on Tuesday found that 93 percent of Republican voters supported Trump — three percentage points higher than in 2016, according to numbers from the same firm.”

Even trying to harm Republican, he failed.  But the CRP Board will not even censure him.  What do you think?

Democrats are turning on the NeverTrump Lincoln Project for its failure to deliver on promises

By Thomas Lifson, American Thinker,  11/5/20  

A reckoning is coming for the turncoat former Republicans that founded The Lincoln Project and raised just under $100 million as of 3 weeks ago. Instead of diminishing the share of Republicans voting for Trump his share actually increased.  Despite their showy outreach efforts, increased Hispanic support for Trump was a disaster for Biden in Florida and Texas, among many other states.

In the fantasies of these people (buyers and sellers, both), Trump was so self-evidently a racist for criticizing coyotes smuggling in MS 13 and other thugs that Latinx voters would surely reflect their own burning hatred.  As it turned out, there were almost as few such offended Hispanics as there were calling themselves “Latinx.”

If the ten percent of Republicans voting against Trump diminished by 3 percent, that means that 30% of the Republican defectors changed their minds and returned to the fold. Losing 30% of market share would get anyone fired in a business.

Fools and their money are soon parted. And cry bitter tears over the opportunities lost:

Some of the less charitably inclined ae noticing how much money some of the principals at the Lincoln Project made for themselves:

The swing of Hispanic voters toward the GOP – the opposite of what The Lincoln Project promised – is even more serious for the Democrats. Not only are Hispanics the largest minority group in the United States, their growth in numbers has been the key to the Democrats’ hopes for a permanent ruling coalition. A dream that shattered.

The Lincoln Project thought it understood “the Latinx vote.”

  1. They are not wanted by the rank and file Republicans, and now they are not wanted by Democrats for becoming traitors to the Republican Party.

    Guess they will caucus among themselves, have a bbq, a few drinks and tell each other what great people they are. At least the British gave Gen. B. Arnold a job and promotion when he sold out Washington and nation.

    Stupid is as stupid does. Will the CRP get it and clean house?

  2. Gwen Myers says

    Republicans need to get serious about restoring the CRP. First step……oust the leader who voted against Trump.

  3. Vince Cicoria says

    The so-called ‘Lincoln Project’, like (its sponsor) the so-called ‘Democratic’ Party, is more a PERVERSION of namesake than it is (either) ‘Party’ or ‘Project’!
