Bishop won by four times more votes on lesser turnout than the first guy did with voter fraud.The results of the NC special election are all you need to look at to realize that all this 2020 blue wave shit the media is pushing is them willfully refusing to learn their lesson from 2016. Any other year that election would have been in the bag, the opposing side was caught red handed cheating, the guy the republicans put out was a nobody linked to the one who got caught, and the Dem candidate was a fairly moderate military man. They really think they can stick to the old "lapdog media blitz and massive out of state cash infusion" trick that has been failing all of Trumps presidency. They're still convinced it was all a fluke. I don't think they're going to truely learn anything until Trump wins again in 2020.
And he was down double digits until Trump stepped in. The coattail effect is real. Trump and every Republican down ballot are gonna slaughter these motherfuckers when the God Emperor himself is actually on the top of the ballot.
