Those Pesky “Russians” Do It Again: Democrats Get Crushed In Georgia Election Despite 7x Spending Advantage

After months of Democrats boasting that Georgia’s special election in the 6th district would be a startling rejection of Trump’s agenda, and having the polling data show as much as a 5 point lead for the Democrats, and outspending the Republican 7:1, Democrats just got served up another unbelievably stunning defeat with a 5.2 point LOSS, as most networks have now been forced to call the race for Republican Karen Handel. In fact, rather than losing ground since Trump moved into the White House, Republicans actually performed better.

Don’t listen to the BS media narrative

Republicans did BETTER in June of 2017 than in November

Democrats lost traction, not gained!

Americans just aint buying the leftist propaganda.

Or CNN’s propaganda.  This was from CNN just yesterday:

It looks like Ossoff will win, so look for Democrats to seize on that message as a warning shot for 2018. An Ossoff victory will dampen the spirits of GOP donors, convince more politicians to break from their president and trigger retirements by Republican lawmakers fearing a tough reelection fight.

Of course, making Handel’s win even sweeter for Republicans is the fact that Democrats outspent them by a margin of 7-to-1, with Ossoff dropping a staggering ~$22 million versus only $3 million for Handel….which is kind of reminiscent of how things played out for Hillary…oops.

Sorry Soros, but it’s only money.

Meanwhile, as The Mercury News pointed out earlier this morning, this race has been by far the costliest in the history of Congressional races for Democrats with Democrat Ossoff raising over $23 million. Ironically, he received nearly 9x more donations from California than from Georgia, a testament to how this special election has morphed into a all or nothing national contest for Democrats.

Between March 29 and May 31, Democrat Ossoff reported receiving 7,218 donations from California, dwarfing the 808 donations he received from Georgia. In the nine Bay Area counties alone, he received 3,063 donations in the same time period.

Those are only a fraction of Ossoff’s total donations, as he doesn’t have to report contributions from people who give less than $200 in total. In addition, many of the individual donations include the same people giving to his campaign multiple times.

Finally, just as we pointed out earlier this morning, there seems to have been some “oversamples” in the polling data as the Real Clear Politics average had Ossoff winning by 5 points just last week…for those keeping track that’s a roughly 10-point polling ‘error’ from how things actually turned out. Here’s what we said earlier today:

According to the Real Clear Politics average, Handel’s support has surged in recent days making the race a dead heat heading into election day. That said, just like last November, we would be shocked if there weren’t some democrat “oversamples” in the polling data. When the bogus polling numbers were not convincing people to turn out for the Democrat, Real Clear Politics had to save face and show a last minute surge for the Republican…

Of course, it’s only a matter of time until someone at CNN and/or MSNBC alleges that Russia stole the election or thunderstorms suppressed the minority vote…you know, because it simply can’t be that American’s just aren’t buying into their failed, Big Government policies anymore.

Update 9 (10:00 EST):

CNN is forced to admit what has been obvious for a couple of hours now…

Update 8 (9:40 EST):

Handel has now pulled away to a 5.2% lead with roughly 66% of the vote counted.

And, you know it’s bad when even the New York Times is throwing in the towel…

Our estimate for DeKalb mail at the beginning of the night was Ossoff at 71. He only came in a little bit above. Sadly not going to cut it.

Update 7 (9:15 EST):

Hope on the Democrat side would seem to be fading somewhat as Handel has pulled away to a 3.2% lead with roughly 60% of the vote counted…which can only mean that the Russians have potentially prevailed again.

Meanwhile, the odds of an Ossoff win are tanking…

And MSNBC is just flat out reporting lies hoping to sway last minute voters…they seem to think that Ossoff has a 2 point lead with 60% reporting…

Update 6 (8:45 EST):

As much as it pains them to admit, even the New York Times now seems to be predicting a Handel win. at 8:15 EST.

After getting their forecasts massively wrong in the Presidential election last November, the New York Times is back with their “Live Forecast” for tonight’s special election. We would say take this with a couple grains of salt.

And to our complete ‘shock’ (sarchasm), polls in Cobb and Fulton county have closed on time at 7pm EST but polls in the heavily Democratic county of Dekalb have been allowed to stay open until 7:30pm EST because of so-called “electronic voting issues” earlier in the day.  What are the issues?  No one seemed to know for sure.

Maybe we’re having memory issues, but it seems like “electronic voting issues” only seem to result in polling extensions in heavily Democratic areas…probably just a coincidence.

CNN and Democrats already seem to be hedging their bets by pointing out that the heavily Democrat-leaning Dekalb County has been hit by severe flood warnings throughout the day which they say has suppressed voter turnout.

Of course, we’re almost certain that the Russians must have figured out a way to make it rain just in the heavily Democratic areas of the 6th District…this is just too ‘convenient’.
