If the anti-Trump fever the media keeps telling us all about cannot break through in Georgia’s 6th District, then it truly is nothing but a phantom that exists nowhere but in the minds of media elites hysterically trying to will President Trump out of existence.
Georgia’s 6th, famous for birthing the political career of a wonky professor named Newton Leroy Gingrich, is now a bastion of establishment, conservative Republicanism. It went for Francois Mitterand Romney by 23 points in 2012.
In 2016 Trump carried the district by just a single point.
Georgia’s 6th is not Trump country. But somehow, after losing their shirts in Virginia, Montana and Kansas, the deranged media has now decided that if an establishment Republican loses in Georgia’s 6th, then it is somehow a rebuke of Donald Trump.
The same Donald Trump that those Georgia voters never liked very much to begin with.
With so much ink and pixels devoted to the media’s obsession with the anti-Trump fever, the real story is once again completely missed here.
The story that the deranged media refuses to cover is all the Bern victims stacking up in the Democratic Party. I mean, seriously, what is it about an endorsement from socialist Bernie Sanders that has become the kiss of death for politicians?
Of course, most famously, there was his own juggernaut campaign that self-immolated during the Democratic primary last year after Hillary Clinton’s henchmen (and henchwomen) rigged the system against him.
So call Bernie Sanders “Bern Victim #1.”
Then there was socialist Mr. Sanders’ eventual pick in the general election, Mrs. Clinton. Bern Victim #2.
In May, socialist Mr. Sanders rode out west to Montana to campaign for the media’s latest heartthrob evidence of anti-Trump fever: nudist cowboy guitarist Rob Quist.
