Jeffrey Lord to Newsmax TV: Trump Overcoming Midterm History

(Newsmax TV's "The Brett Winterble Show")

By    |   Tuesday, 23 October 2018 12:55 PM

With such historically poor midterms through U.S. presidential history, former aide for President Ronald Reagan, Jeffrey Lord told Newsmax TV it is "significant" that polling numbers suggest President Donald Trump will overcome past precedent.

"These midterm elections – and I've been involved in them before, one from the White House in 1986 with Ronald Reagan – they have a long history of going against the president of the moment, of both parties," Lord told "The Brett Winterble Show." "There are only rare exceptions . . .

"Other than that, pretty routinely, presidents of both parties get absolutely trashed. The fact that is not happening here is significant."

Lord credits "Kavanaugh and Caravans," as Newt Gingrich and President Trump have framed this November's midterms, pointing to the Democrats' smear campaign of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and seeking sensitivity from Americans toward illegal immigrants caravaning through Latin America toward the U.S. border right before election day.

"I have to say that is pretty dead-on accurate in terms of the impact of events," Lord told Winterble, adding these midterms are not your run-of-the-mill "themeless pudding" campaigns.

The Republicans have effectively "nationalized" the midterms, according to Lord, getting the GOP voter base to turn out this November, by capitalizing on Democratic miscalculations on both smearing a conservative federal judge and propping up a migrant caravan to damage the U.S. president on his seeking tough immigration policy reform.
