Former President Donald Trump scored a massive victory in the Iowa caucuses on Monday evening, which no doubt caused Democrats — both politicians and activists — to curl up in the fetal position and cry themselves to sleep. No doubt their sweet slumber was scattered with nightmares of Trump winning reelection to the White House this November, ushering in a red wave the likes of which we were promised in 2022, but alas, did not come to fruition. This, of course, terrifies the radicals because losing control of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches will mean the dismantling of the deep state in federal law enforcement, along with the destruction of their governmental infrastructure.
However, some individuals, like California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, see the big win for Trump as a prime opportunity to do a little fundraising, which is exactly what he did.
Keep in mind, Trump won Iowa with a whopping 51 percent of the vote, which led to two candidates running for the GOP nomination to drop out of the race.
Here’s more from the Western Journal:
Vivek Ramaswamy and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson each suspended their campaigns after failing to gain traction with voters. The Republican primary is now a three-person race between Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
The coming weeks will tell us more about the viability of the DeSantis and Haley campaigns. But according to a fundraising email that was sent out before all the votes were counted in Iowa on Monday, Democrats view Trump’s nomination as inevitable.
Reporter Ashley Zavala with Sacramento’s KCRA-TV shared a fundraising email she received on the social media platform X from California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
The email message features the greasy Newsom employing fear tactics to share his concern that Trump might actually pull off a major victory in November’s general election, a prospect he referred to as “terrifying.”
“A short while ago, Donald Trump won the Iowa Caucus. He is now one step closer to becoming the Republican nominee and having a chance to return to the White House. Terrifying,” Newsom stated as he asked her for three bucks.
One of the best ways to raise money for political campaigns, especially for Democrats, is to try and manipulate people through making emotional appeals. In the email sent out by Newsom, he asks recipients to think back to how they felt when Trump creamed twice failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“I want you to think about the way you felt the morning after Donald Trump defeated [twice failed Democratic presidential candidate ]Hillary Clinton in 2016? Do you remember it?” Newsom went on to ask.
He then added, “Now think about the relief you felt when it was clear Joe Biden won in 2020.”
Newsom then informed the individuals who received the email that if Democrats were going to stop Trump later this year, they would need every single dollar they could spare.
“We all have a role to play in making sure we are feeling that relief once again,” the governor continued. “And a fully-funded Democratic National Committee is essential for victory in 2024.”
All of the money in the world doesn’t amount to a sack of dog manure if President Joe Biden’s approval rating keeps dropping. It’s almost went as low as it can possibly go, but it isn’t there yet. People can’t stand the man, his administration, or his disastrous policies.
A poll from ABC News/Ipsos released last week found that Biden’s current approval rating sits at 33 percent. Meanwhile, 58 percent of the poll respondents said they disapproved of Biden’s job performance.
Among the country’s largest voting bloc — independent voters — Biden’s approval rating sat at only 28 percent, ABC News/Ipsos found.
If things continue to go the way they appear to be going at the moment, Biden is not going to be in the White House come January of next year. If Trump and Biden do face-off in November and the former president wins, will Biden attempt to overturn the results and claim he cheated or is a danger to the country and try to impede the peaceful transition of power? Wouldn’t that be something? Let’s hope it doesn’t happen.
