Poll: Young Trump Would Win NY House Primary in a Landslide

Republican kingmakers in New York state are said to be encouraging younger members of the Trump family, President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump specifically, to think about running for an open U.S. House seat in that state.

The New York Times reports that the Club for Growth, a conservative anti-tax group based in Washington, commissioned a poll about potential winners in a run for the seat now held by Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) on Long Island, who announced this month that he was retiring and would not run for re-election next year.

The poll showed Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s son, Eric, and works on the president’s re-election campaign, winning a hypothetical Republican primary by more than 30 points. The only other name on the poll was former Long Island Congressman Rick Lazio, who has said he is seriously considering running for the seat.

The president of the Club for Growth, David McIntosh, told the Times that Lara Trump had nothing to do with the poll but that they threw her name into the mix in encourage her to get into the race. Lara Trump, who hails from North Carolina and now lives in Manhattan, said she was flattered by the poll but is not interested in running.

“While I would never close the door on anything in the future, right now I am focused on winning a second term for President Trump,” she said in a statement.

Donald Trump Jr., who has been actively raising money for Republican supporters of the president on Long Island lately, is also mentioned as a potential shoe-in for the seat. Trump Jr. declined to comment for the Times article, but told CBS earlier this month, “I don’t ever rule anything out.”

“Nobody, other than the president himself, brings more star power, excitement and energy than members of the Trump family,” Nick Langworthy, the New York state Republican Party chairman said in a statement. “It’s a special phenomenon that no other president has enjoyed, outside of maybe the Kennedys.”

>ALWAYS Confused<

Have you had an opportunity yet to seek psychiatric help for your muddle headed state; or has your present team of shrinks increased the dosage of your medication? With you becoming more and more confused about everything, you SHOULD find other help ASAP.

“Sorry that you were only able to be indoctrinated and missed out being educated.” Confused James

Ah, I see. I apologize for taking so long to see this. It is YOU doing the projection! Why did I fail to see that? It was right in front of me.

YOU have been indoctrinated for so long that you just can’t think for yourself anymore, so YOU think others that disagree with you are ALSO indoctrinated.

“I see Barry’s name still comes up occasionally.” Confused James

Ha ha ha ha! [Thump.] Sorry, I fell down laughing so hard. Occasionally? You bring it up YOURSELF every chance YOU get! You are so unaware that if you looked in a mirror that you wouldn’t even see your reflection. Amazing.

“Your worship of this phony half Black is understandable” Confused James

This is further proof that you prefer to remain confused about people with whom you disagree. You just don’t care to learn. So sad.

“When speaking of dynasties you failed to mention the Obamas.” I Ching

You confused me, for a while, but I think I get it now.

You hate the first black president so much, just like King Donald The Loser, that you just wanted to comment negatively in some way about him (and family) because that would somehow make you feel better.

Do you feel better?

Genitally Confused and Morte,

When speaking of dynasties you failed to mention the Obamas. Thank goodness Amy Carter has thus far expressed NO interest in politics.

Consider this….Hunter Biden sometime in the 2050s. Nancy Pelosi’s homely daughter sooner than that (she’s already in CA politics).

“Presumably you feel the same way with the Clintons and the Bushes.” Morte206

I am confused.

Have I ever said ANYTHING that would indicate to you that I WOULDN’T feel the same way about other dynasties?

What makes you think the I would be partisan on this issue?

THIS is fascism at its finest. There is no confusion to be had here. If you favor royal family members doing this, then you too are fascistic.
