Over the past few years, Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) has become more and more hostile towards President Trump, and even attacked his MAGA agenda that has become so popular, leaving a growing backlash against the Republican Anti-Trumper! In fact, during a recent town hall, Rep. Justin Amash was slammed by a number of constituents, but one in particular, a black man, criticized Amash because he pointed out how President Trump has done more for himself and black Americans, than any other President! Still, Amash has repeatedly called for the impeachment of President Trump, and continues to call for his impeachment, simply because he doesn’t like him!
Ironically, when Amash ran for office, he ran as a Conservative Pro-Trump Republican, and had President Trump introduce him on the stage at a rally at the Langlois’ DeltaPlex facility in 2015! Then candidate Trump praised him in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as Amash appeared to hold similar values, policies, and welcomed his endorsement!
Then, following his re-election, and after Amash got the Trump vote, he showed his political sinister agenda, and turned on the President, calling for him to be impeached! However, Breitbart notes that Amash isn’t the only Republican who is deceptive! In fact, they point out how…
three of the other candidates–Afendoulis, Meijer, and Norton–all have ties into the same Never Trump community that voters are furious with Amash over. Lower has accused Norton of being Never Trump, exposing old Facebook posts from Norton from 2016 saying he would not vote for Trump against Clinton when Trump became the presumptive GOP nominee. Afendoulis similarly made a series of Never Trump comments in 2016, according to a press release from Lower’s campaign, including calling both Trump and Clinton “batshit crazy” after Trump won the Michigan primary in March 2016.
Justin Amash’s approval rating with likely GOP voters surveyed shows a massive 52% who view him as “very unfavorable,” and another 19% say they view him as “somewhat unfavorable.” That leaves only 24% who find him somewhat favorable!
Now, on America’s Independence Day, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the Michigan Never Trump congressman announced that he is quitting the GOP. He announced his exit, ironically by penning an opEd in the left-wing Washington Post, by stating…
“Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party. No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it.”
However, his self-declared heroic efforts, like most politicians, are more about his own self-preservation, than rejecting partisan loyalties! After all, new polling is showing that his attacks on the President and his agenda, have left him as the one rejected, not the other way around!
Breitbart News is reported how a new poll in Michigan shows Amash not only being underwater but down a whopping 20 points in the polls against his Republican challenger!
Breitbart News reported that…
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the Michigan Never Trump GOP congressman who recently publicly backed impeachment of President Donald Trump, is now underwater in his own district according to a poll obtained exclusively by Breitbart News.
Amash is polling at just 17 percent in the GOP primary, trailing State Rep. Jim Lower by double digits. Lower, who announced his candidacy as Amash revealed his support for impeaching Trump, is at 27 percent–a 10-point lead over Amash. What’s more, another Amash challenger, State Rep. Lynn Afendoulis, is tied with the congressman for 17 percent–meaning one challenger to the incumbent representative is beating him by double digits and a second is already tied with him.
They reported that the poll was conducted by the Strategic National who surveyed 400 likely Republican voters in Michigan’s third congressional district between June 29 to July 1! The poll has a margin of error of 4.89%.
They add how…
Strategic National has a track record as a political consulting and polling firm for getting Michigan politics correct. In fact, it was the only firm in the nation to correctly call the Michigan victory by President Trump over Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016, publishing a poll showing a tie between the two in the final days of the election. The GOP firm, which represents various clients around the country, does not currently have a horse in the race in Michigan’s third congressional district–but says in a release it reserves the right to take one on and may do so down the road.
Interestingly, of the three bottom candidates, they are all blatantly anti-Trumpers, yet as the district turns on Amash, all three of them are smearing each other as ‘Never-Trumpers, while trying to make themselves sound more pro-Trump! The three candidates include Meijer, Afendoulis, and Norton, and they all are destroying each other, as they try to now re-make themselves out to be pro-Trump!
Ultimately, it now appears that Amash’s only chance of being re-elected would be if Democrats cross over to vote for him during the GOP primary! In fact, John Yob, the CEO of Strategic Nation, who conducted the survey said…
“Congressman Amash has a path to victory by turning out Democrats to vote in the Republican Primary in a crowded field that isn’t represented in the topline results of the survey. The results of the Democrat portion of the survey are consistent with the strong Democrat turnout he had at his town hall meeting.”
Another problem for Amash is the fact that, even if Democrats do cross over, he is competing with three other never-Trumpers, especially Meijer, which leaves him in the same position as other RINO’s who have been run out of office, like Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona!
Currently, the survey found that Justin Amash’s constituency wants the new Representative to be a “strong supporter of President Trump”! In fact, that number stands at 82% of constituents want a pro-Trumper!
In a nutshell…Representative Justin Amash IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE, and it appears that there is no going back, as the Trump-hater has no way back in the mind of his voters! Therefore, he is leaving the Republican Party, not because of some heroic act, or because he loves our country, but instead because he loves the power it brings, and likely the money! Now, the so-called Conservative is turning his back on those who voted him into office, in the hope that he can court enough left-wing Socialists to help him keep hold of his power in D.C., and remain as part of the swamp!
