Trump Losing Republicans?

The internet is full of postings from people claiming they are long-time Republicans who are not going to vote for Trump in this year’s election. They cite long lists of Trump’s actions and inactions which they say have made they decide to vote for Biden instead. But do such postings, which all sound very scripted, really represent what most Republicans are thinking? That’s what Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York are kicking around today:

 

Trump Losing Scranton? Street Signs say No!

The Hill’s “Rising” news and opinion show is featuring a report that indicates that Trump is losing the white working class which helped him win in 2016. The report targets Scranton, Pa, and concludes that many of the white working class are so upset with Covid, that they are drifting away from Trump because they blame him for its spread. But Larry Sparano, who lives right outside Scranton, says there’s another very visible measure -ignored in the report- that indicates Trump is not losing support there. He explains, in this broadcast with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Covid Will Defeat Trump?

Liberal Commentator Chris Hayes insists that Covid is continuing to spread because President Trump is continuing in his failure to take active measures to control the virus. He compares the state of the nation to all of us being hostages aboard a bus, with Trump determining if it will blow up along with all the passengers. Will it be America that is destroyed, or Trump? That’s today’s topic of discussion with Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Will Virus Defeat Trump?

The media are full of reports depicting Trump in deep trouble due to the public’s perception that Trump has done too little to contain the pandemic. While that might be a big factor in the 2020 presidential election, Larry Sparano says there’s another huge issue of concern lurking in the background –and it’s an issue that could win Trump another term. Larry lays it out in this conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump Losing Seniors? Maybe Not.

Will Trump, in 2020, retain the large portion of senior voters that helped him win the White House in 2016? Kyle Kulinski and other commentators say no. That’s because they will blame Trump for the spread of Coronavirus as well as for dips in the Stock Market. But in a conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York, Larry Sparano says the senior vote might remain with Trump for several very good reasons:

Bolton’s Bombshells? Could be a Dud!

The media is all abuzz over the new book by John Bolton, describing what he says is Trump’s self-serving moves on foreign policy matters of which he had no understanding. But, as Larry Sparano describes in this conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York, Bolton himself is no genius when it comes to foreign policy:

No Quick Recovery

All the upbeat news following last week’s latest jobs report does not reflect. Nor does it indicate that there will be a quick recovery ahead. Economist Richard Wolff says the dire consequences of the Covid-19 shut-down will become increasingly and painfully obvious in the months ahead. Larry Sparano discusses the factors that will keep the economy depressed with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York.

 

Biden a Shoe-in? Not so Fast!

Many partisan commentators and “analysts” are crowing about new polls showing Trump far behind Biden –by as much as 14 points. But are the polls accurate, and are the “experts” interpreting them correctly? Larry Sparano says no, in this interview with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

“Supreme” Decision for Trump

The Supreme Court will soon decide whether President Donald Trump must release his tax returns. If the Supremes decide he has to, how will that affect the 2020 election? Larry Sparano discusses that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York. This follows a report by Ari Melber of MSNBC:

Biden Didn’t Collapse: But Did He Win Sunday’s Debate with Sanders?

Joe Biden might have just dispelled much of the increasing speculation that he is not mentally fit to be President. But even is he still has all his marbles, did he best Bernie Sanders in last night’s audience-less debate? On Target’s Larry Sparano chews that over with newsman and commentator Bryant Thomas:
