Barack Оbama’s Half Brother Breaks Silence, Tells Twitter Followers To “Vote Republican Up And Down The Ticket”
Former President Barack Obama’s older half-brother Malik Obama broke his silence and told his over 200,000 Twitter followers to vote Republican tomorrow. He also asked Elon Musk to put Trump back on Twitter.
Malik said: “Vote Republican up and down the ticket! Mr. Elon Musk. Put President Trump back on Twitter. We are Republican we vote Republican.”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk agreed with Obama saying: “To independent-minded voters: Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic.”
“Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!”
Well, according to the most recent CNN poll, 48% of independents say they’ll vote for Republicans, while 45% say they’ll vote for Democrats. While this finding is within the poll’s margin of error, it suggests Republicans will have an edge on Tuesday.
It’s a decided shift from the 2018 midterm elections, where CNN exit polls showed 54% of independent voters supporting Democrats over Donald Trump’s Republicans, which led to the loss of 40 GOP seats in the House of Representatives that year.
This independents-to-Democrats trend continued in 2020, when again 54% of independent voters in exit polls backed Joe Biden over Trump for President.
But now the pendulum seems to be swinging back. After all, in 2016, Trump beat Hillary Clinton among independent voters by a 6-point margin.
The movement of independent voters toward Republicans was a continuation from the Obama-era midterm elections: with a 12-point margin in 2014 and a 16-point “shellacking” in the tea party wave election of 2010 in exit polls.
