On Episode 33 of War Room: Impeachment, hosts Stephen K. Bannon and Jason Miller discuss Democrat’s victory in last night’s Louisiana gubernatorial election, predictably overhyped by the media.
Bannon notes “The liberal media is dancing on the political grave of President Trump. They’re saying he lost the house, he lost Kentucky, he lost the Virginia General Assembly, and now he’s lost Louisiana.
He adds that “Kentucky, Virginia, and Louisiana are all red states or districts. How do you counter that?”
Miller addresses the Louisiana outcome: “When it comes to Louisiana, this is a Democratic governor who is being reelected. What we heard from Scott Rasmussen a week back is the Democratic base is fired up. They are at a ten out of ten motivation right now. Our side just isn’t that motivated yet. President Trump is not on the ballot. [Republicans] are maybe a 7 or an 8 on the motivation scale.”
In Kentucky, Miller points to the Republican gubernatorial candidate’s low favorability: “Governor Matt Bevin was literally the most unpopular governor in the entire country. The rest of his ticket all ran 10 points ahead of him.”
Miller also analyzes Virginia: “When you look at Virginia, which I wouldn’t even say it’s a purple state anymore, its blue, it was only a matter of time until the Democrats were going to get the Senate and the lower House of Delegates back on board, particularly in those suburban areas. There are no more Republicans in Northern Virginia.
So how do these election results relate to impeachment?
To Miller, it influences voter motivation and turnout: “Impeachment is really a motivational tool for [Democrats].”
