Trump and The Chicken Burn

Welcome to Wisconsin politics now. There is an annual event in Wauwatosa every year called the Chicken Burn. The event usually has hundreds of people. 

This year it was 40-70 people, why is that? It’s because the Republican Party  is divided. The political landscape In Wisconsin is reminiscent of The Fall of The Chicken Burn and Michels v Kleefisch split the Party. Republicans intentionally gave us Tony Evers.

No one is united In Wisconsin’s Republican Party. The party makes money, why should they care about winning elections? I did a segment on John Fandrich escorting Billie Johnson out of a breakfast meeting by law enforcement and I asked what would Brian Schimming do. I wondered because I think he cares about his brand. He is a good man, I just don’t know if he is a good leader.

I keep telling people to wake up. From the lack of a crowd at the Chicken Burn that tells me that some people have. But the party is now a business and the Product is Trump…… If you don’t support the product they will have to give you a better one next time, something to think about.

I took a mental break after Paris died. I’ve been seeing everything, responding to some of it and ignoring most of it.

I talk to a ton of people off the record and the consensus is that Trump wins the Primary and loses the General.

I could talk about someone I know involved in the elector scheme, I could talk about the felony counts against Trump, I could talk about who should be the nominee but that’s useless.

What is the future of the Republican Party? Is the GOP officially the party of Trump? I don’t know. 

This is what I do know :


The most recent ABC News/Ipsos poll, conducted Aug. 15-17, showed some problems for former President Donald Trump in terms of public opinion on his mounting criminal charges amid his comeback bid for the White House.

The poll, released after his fourth indictment, over efforts to reverse his 2020 loss in Georgia, shows that he’s not getting the post-indictment bounce with Americans that he’s been touting on the campaign trail.

Any time they file an indictment, we go way up in the polls,” Trump boasted during a Republican Party dinner in Montgomery, Alabama, earlier this month. “We need one more indictment to close out this election. One more indictment, and this election is closed out.”

But the ABC News/Ipsos survey — which follows three other polls this year in the wake of Trump’s charges in three other indictments, all of which he denies — suggest that while Republicans are still largely supporting him, he faces issues with the broader public.

President Joe Biden, whom Trump could face next year in a rematch of the 2020 race, is also grappling with an anemic favorability rating, seemingly not receiving a boost even as many Americans say they want Trump to suspend his campaign.

Those were three polls. Americans still don’t want President Biden. Let’s take a look at some numbers.

Google States:

One in five respondents who voted for Biden in 2020 said they weren’t sure who they would vote for this time. The latest poll’s approval rating for Biden of 40% was just four points higher than the 36% lows he hit in mid-2022. The survey had some heartening news for Democrats as well as of Aug 10, 2023


10 million applications for new small businesses filed in 2021 and 2022—the strongest two years on record. America has seen the strongest growth since the pandemic of any leading economy in the world. 

During his first two years, the President presided over $1.7 trillion in deficit reduction—a larger reduction than under any other President in American history.

 He has signed legislation into law to reduce the deficit by more than $1 trillion over the next decade, including by ensuring the wealthiest Americans and largest corporations pay their fair share, cracking down on wealthy tax cheats, and lowering prescription drug costs for the American people by cutting wasteful giveaways to Big Pharma.

 And his Budget would reduce the deficit by another more than $2.5 trillion over the next decade with additional reforms, including requiring the wealthiest Americans and the largest multinational corporations to pay at least the tax rates that many middle-class families do.

So should you abandon Trump? Looking at the Landscape you have to decide.
