Republican National Committee chair defends party unity as divisions grow

Source: ABC News

With more than 27 million votes already cast in November’s election and national polls showing former Vice President Joe Biden with a double-digit lead over President Donald Trump, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel projected confidence on ABC's "This Week" that momentum was swinging back toward the president and hinted of an Election Day surge at the voting booth.

"I am seeing more enthusiasm than I saw in 2016. I study the data every day," the RNC chair told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, when pressed, on Sunday. "We know that our voters are going to turn out on Election Day. They don't trust mail-in balloting as much."

As pessimism grows about the president’s reelection prospects, he has come under recent attacks from members of his own party. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who is up for reelection in November, was recorded telling supporters in a phone call that Trump has routinely sold out U.S. allies, disrespected women, mocked evangelicals behind closed doors and "spends like a drunken sailor."

“Ben's been there for a long time. It's not surprising. It's the only time he gets news is when he criticizes this president,” McDaniel said. “But the party, and the energy we're seeing on the ground, and the rallies, and what we're seeing for this president is unprecedented in terms of the support he's receiving from Republicans across the country.”

She is Mitt Romney's niece. Later in the linked article she essentially blamed Michigan Govenor Whitmer for trying to blame tRump for the kidnapping threat against her, and defended the "lock her up" chants at tRump's rally.

1. Most important is what the Russians are doing

They only need to sow the seeds of doubt about Biden winning and hope the Russians can do the rest.

6. Jesus....

Why is it that everything these people do has to be labeled “unprecedented” or “historic”? It gets on my nerves SO much.

Trump himself always talks in superlatives. Has it now rubbed off on all of them?? Ugh...
