Democrats are hailing Doug Jones’ Alabama Senate victory over Republican candidate Roy Moore, who battled decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct during the final weeks of his campaign, as evidence that the electoral tide is turning against President Trump.
NBC News calls the election outcome a “stunning victory.” POLITICO reports on the “Alabama earthquake.” The Washington Post calls it “miraculous.” To hear the fake news media tell it, not since the Battle of Lepanto has an underdog overcome such odds. Who could have possibly predicted this?
It turns out, President Trump did. On September 22, President Trump predicted that Roy Moore would likely lose to his Democrat opponent in the general election. He explained,
I have to say this, and you understand this and just look at the polls. Luther will definitely win. Roy has a very good chance of not winning in the general election. It’s all about the general. Don’t forget, we don’t stop here. You have an election coming up the day this is over. So this is over on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, the new race begins. You’ve got to beat a Democrat. Luther is going to win easily and Roy’s going to have a hard time winning.
If only Alabama Republican primary voters had listened. “Sad!”
