    Trump-backed GOPer Dan Bishop wins North Carolina special election

    Republican Dan Bishop pulled off a narrow victory in a closely-watched North Carolina special congressional election — a day after President Trump pushed his supporters to vote for the candidate at his packed campaign rally. Bishop, a conservative who has been a state Senator since 2017, defeated Democrat Dan McCready for the vacant House seat in the state’s 9th Congressional District. Trump threw his weight behind Bishop — and had close eyes on the race in a district where the president breezed to victory in 2016 by 11 percentage points. At a Trump campaign rally in Fayetteville on Monday night, the president encouraged the crowd to back Bishop. Trump even invited Bishop up on stage, where the GOP-candidate said: “Go out and vote for right Dan, vote for Dan Bishop.”
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Trump won by 12% in 2016.

    Bishop wins by 2% in 2019.

    Not a good trend for the Dear Leader.

    He still won and that my dear is all that counts.

    And it was predicted that the Democrat (whoever that might have been) would win by a landslide. It was also predicted that if the Republican did win the MSM and its sycophants would claim it wouldn't mean anything. Thanks for proving the second prediction correct.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Why do you cons always lie?

    Provide a link to your claim of predictions of democratic landslide or STFU.

    This is straight off Morning Joe, I watched this theme by Mika and Steve and whipped puppy Joe too.

    alexa……….beevee…….Dr. Who......please and thank you.....at least attempt to reword your contributions in here. The fact that it's regurgitated media manure is so obvious. Can we not maintain some standards on this forum and don't even the media have some copywrite infringement laws?

    This was the exact same media spin. Fact is, the Republican in the district close to Charlotte was behind in the polls until Pence and Trump went and motivated the voter base on an unusual special election for the district. Trump showed again that he is a powerful political force. He's a master campaigner, his speeches are stand in line for hours affairs, sold out, and exciting(I've been to 2).

    You need to learn to lose better, I note losing brings out some hysterics and hyperbole where you're concerned. Do you not see that, alexa?

    Bishop wasn't supposed to win this election.

    I think if you were to ask Trump, anyone on his campaign, any republican running for re-election ha question they’d disagree.
