The lies and deceit continue to fly in from liberals, and now it’s all about the government shutdown of course.
When the Democrats or mainstream media tried insisting the Republicans were the main reason behind the government shutdown, you could clearly see something was not legitimate.
Well, today we have compelling evidence that the left has been planning the shutdown for over a blue moon. A poll was actually conducted over what would happen if the government shutdown actually took place over DACA and “Dreamers” about a month before. The results from the poll are quite startling.
So now you decide, are the Republicans the ones to blame?
From Daily Caller: Democrats conducted a poll in states President Donald Trump won in 2016 to determine what would happen if a shutdown was tied to immigration, according to a report Sunday from The Washington Post.
A Super PAC allied with Senate Democrats commissioned a poll in 12 battleground states to determine which party would be blamed if a shutdown was tied to the legal status of dreamers. The poll found Democrats absorb most of the blame in such a scenario.
The poll, which was conducted in December by Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group on behalf of Senate Majority PAC, also found that blame for a shutdown would be split between Trump and Republicans, and Democrats in Congress, WaPo reported.
So they were testing what would happen if they did it and decided to go for it, even in the face of getting a good part of the blame.
That’s how important using it as a wedge to get illegal aliens legal status is to them.
The results of the survey might help explain the all-out ad blitz Democrats conducted shortly after the government shutdown. Democratic-affiliated groups are working overtime trying to shore up support for Sens. Robert P. Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania and Sherrod Brown of Ohio after both sided with their parties during the budget fiasco.
Democrats, who knew the attacks were coming, have blasted conservative states with videos and online ads that point to muddled quotes Trump made in 2013 and 2017 about how a government shutdown would be beneficial for his party. Priorities USA, a Democratic super PAC, for instance, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a digital ad buy targeting swing seats.
So knowing they were going to do it, they planned ads in advance to shore up the support in Trump/conservative areas.
But, sure, it’s the Republicans’ fault?
They’re not actually opposing anything in the government funding bill.
They just want to hold it hostage to get their DACA desires fulfilled even though they don’t need to do that now, the DACA deadline isn’t until March, that’s when it expires officially.
