The Associated Press offered a unique perspective on the group of Texas Democrats who fled the state to block a voting integrity bill; claiming the legislators are now “living a life of scrutiny, stress and secrecy.”
“Democratic lawmakers who fled Texas to block a restrictive voting bill are living a life of scrutiny, stress and secrecy. The state legislators find themselves balancing a punishing schedule and other obligations all under a national spotlight,” claims the AP.

Senator Amy Klobuchar heaped praise on the group of Texas Democrats who fled the state to block an impending voting integrity law; calling the lawmakers “freedom fighters” who went to Washington to “seek salvation.”
“We stand here with these people of courage, with freedom fighters who came to Washington D.C. to seek salvation because they are not going to be able to get that governor of Texas to protect the voting rights of the people,” said the Senator.
“Instead of trying to make it easier for people to vote, the Republicans have done everything to make it harder, including threatening these legislators. They are standing their ground,” she added.
“We know what the Texas bill would do. This is going on all over the country,” concluded the Democrat.
'WORST MAYOR EVER': New Poll Shows President Trump MORE POPULAR than Bill De Blasio in NY
A new poll released this week shows President Trump is more popular in ultra-liberal New York than Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio; topping the far-left leader by more than 5% throughout the state.
“This is an astounding stat. Bill de Blasio’s approval rating in New York is worse than Donald Trump’s approval rating in New York. de Blasio: 29% Trump: 34%,” posted a reporter from the New York Times.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to poll at 0.00% in Iowa, with a new survey showing the far-left leader gaining zero votes out of 600 local Democrats.
“How do you process this information that not one single Iowa voter named you as a first or second choice in this new polling?” asked CNN’s Ana Cabrera.
“It’s a poll of 600 Iowans eight months before the caucuses. This is just the beginning of a very long process,” said de Blasio.

The horrible polling numbers come as “wealthy” millennials flee NYC due to housing costs, massive taxes, and burdensome business regulations.
“Wealthy millennials are not interested in trying to make it in the city that never sleeps. In fact, according to a new study, they are actually leaving New York state altogether,” reports Fox Business. “Based on data provided by the IRS from the 2015 to 2016 tax year, a June 2019 SmartAsset study listed New York as the top state rich millennials are fleeing.”
According to the survey, “rich” millennials include those younger than 35 with an income of $100,000 or higher. Wealthy young Americans are also fleeing Illinois, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
“The Northeast isn’t popular with wealthy millennials,” noted the report. “Save for New Jersey, which made the top 10, the Northeast isn’t a popular destination for the wealthy under 35. Five of the bottom 10 states (Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York), plus the District of Columbia, are located in the Northeastern region of the U.S.”
The populations of America’s three largest cities are “shrinking” for the first time in years as residents flee rising crime, congestion, massive taxes, and a lack of affordable housing.
“America’s largest cities are shrinking but a few in the Southwest are continuing to boom. Fort Worth, Texas, is now the 13th most populous U.S. city, surpassing both San Francisco and Columbus, Ohio, according to newly released population estimates from the Census Bureau,” reports Bloomberg.
“Besides Fort Worth, the fifteen most populous cities were largely unchanged from the prior year. However, the three largest U.S. cities, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago, shrank last year,” adds the article.
ANOTHER EXCUSE: Hillary’s Campaign Manager Blames Lackluster ‘BLUE WAVE’ on ‘Gerrymandering’
Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook weighed-in on the less-than-expected “blue wave” Wednesday; bizarrely claiming Democrats “won the popular vote” and “gerrymandering is real.”
“Looks like Dems won the popular vote by 7-9 points yesterday. That’s more than GOP margin in 1994 or 2010–both “big waves”. Gerrymandering is real. It’s why Democrats didn’t win more seats. But wins for Gov, state leg and even state Supreme Court will translate into fairer maps,” posted Mook on social media.

Mook’s comments come hours after Democrats gained dozens of seats in the House of Representatives, but fell short in pivotal Senate and governor races -particularly in Texas and Florida.
