A lot of people have been asking me over the last 12 hours why I'm pushing for #HopeHicks to be @realDonaldTrump's new CoS so let me explain:
1) Kelly is leaving... yes, I know what Trump said, I know what Kelly said... but take I know enough people in the WH to know, Kelly is leaving.
2) Personel is policy, the next CoS will be responsible for hiring and overseeing the hiring of many important positions. Under Kelly, MANY Never-Trumpers have been brought into the administration. Trump's base who cares about #MAGA cannot afford another year of this
3) Mulvaney and Ayers are both decent men but they're not on the #MAGA train. Mulvaney was part of the omnibus that prevented Trump from building the wall & expanded Catch & Release. He's a total believer in open borders.
4) Ayers has been in politics for decades and has always been a rank and file Republican. He doesn't have a populist bone in his body & will flood the place with Pence & Kushner people.
5) That is why we need Hope Hicks. She's non-ideological, has Trump's best interests at heart, and isn't working for a job in a future Pence WH. She's far more likely to install #MAGA ppl, work with Ivanka & Jared instead of feuding, and be loyal to Trump.
6) If we have Hope Hicks, we have a chance of getting more staff members who will fight for the agenda Trump campaigned on. Everyone else will be opportunists, social climbers, or ideologues. #done

Johnson County reporting 38%, Colyer gained a net increase of 181 votes. The margin in the county continues to narrow from 45.5% to 44.5% for Colyers and from 35% to 35.9% for Kobach #KSGov
Kobach still leads by 683 votes. This is not the huge boost of moderates many Colyer voters predicted would come. #KSGov - still 62% to be counted
Colyer's lead in Johnson County has been reduced every time the vote total has come in... now just 8.6% ahead of Kobach

Here's a short tweetstorm about how the polling industry provides #FakeNews with coverage: (worth the read for anyone who cares about elections)
Quinnipiac has a new poll out, Trump down by 20 points and the media is already tweeting and covering it but the sample size does not reflect the American electorate at all.
Quinnipiac is notoriously bad for their methodology and changing their sample sizes. This is the last 4 polls. Wide ranges of D+2 to D+6 with a huge amount of indies who don't disclose their political leanings

New WaPo Poll: Despite wall-to-wall negative coverage, voters in battleground districts trust Trump over Congressional Dems on border security, ensuring immigrants don't take Americans jobs, & America attracting the best & brightest immigrants.
WaPo poll: 40%!!! of voters in battleground districts think America has gone too far in welcoming immigrants
WaPo poll: 83% of voters in battleground districts support E-Verify. That's higher than the amount that support amnesty for the DACAs. Next time you hear of a bipartisan deal, E-Verify is as bipartisan as it gets

New YouGov Poll shows only 51% of Republicans believe we should maintain our commitment with NATO. Trump is turning the GOP away from the war party
Given the chance, 30% of Republicans believe we should withdraw from #NATO. Only a majority of Democrats think we should stay. #warparty
Also in the poll, ironically older people care more about abortion than younger people when it comes to the next #SCOTUS
