In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, it seemed Democrats could do no right.
The party stabbed energizing candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders in the back in favor of Hillary Clinton for all the country to see. The DNC fed her debate questions, blocked the Sanders Campaign from email lists and handed her advance “super delegate” votes that prevented Sanders from any chance of securing the nomination.
Doubling down on their perception problems, Hillary was under investigation for crimes against national security, failed to send help to Americans under siege at Benghazi, and didn’t even bother to campaign in several battleground states. Her message to voters was simply, “it’s my turn, damn it.” Apparently not.
To say that the Democratic National Committee has failed to learn from its gross 2016 incompetence would be quite an understatement. In fact, the party of “resist and obstruct” has already waded into muddy waters and their political hijinks are bound to land them on the outside of the White House in 2020.
These are four reasons Democrats will lose to President Donald Trump and the GOP in 2020.
1: Trouble with The Green New Deal
It seems politically confounding that the party that was handily dispatched by a Reality TV star would allow a New York socialist bartender to be its new face. Like it or not, rookie Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has declared herself the “boss” and is pushing the most radical platform ever conceived.
The Green New Deal is being mocked by anyone who can do basic math, because it would add upwards of $92 trillion to the national debt. Even Bernie Sanders was only one-third that crazy when he proposed adding about $32 trillion in freebies. Allowing perhaps the dumbest person ever elected to Congress to become the DNC standard-bearer and push to crush the thriving economy is political suicide. The next presidential candidate may need the blessing of left-wing extremists such as AOC. However, moderates will vote to keep tax cuts and jobs, not budget-busting pipe dreams. Expect a purge in 2020.
2: Democrats Follow Failed Hillary Plan
The liberal super PAC known as Priorities USA is pulling out of Ohio even before the first 2020 presidential shot is fired. The PAC dumped upwards of $133 million into the battleground state to support Hillary Clinton’s campaign and rallied behind Pres. Obama in 2012. Reports indicate that the PAC has already downgraded Ohio from battleground status to “GOP watch” because the Democratic Party has moved so far left that they believe Ohio may be unwinnable.
“It’s not in our initial spending plans,” Priorities USA spokesman Josh Schwerin reportedly said. “It is in the states to watch-and-see if an investment is worth making.”
Pres. Trump won Ohio by 8 points even though political experts claimed it was a reasonably secure Blue state after Obama claimed a 3-point win in 2012. It appears that the radicalization of the DNC with its pro-infanticide, pro-socialism and open borders platform has financial backers throwing up their hands and not bothering. That’s precisely what Hillary did in 2016. She didn’t bother.
3: Attacking the First Family will Backfire
Since Democrats gained control over the U.S. House, they have been hell-bent on obstructing the Trump Administration and GOP from continuing the winning America First policies. But the angry Democrats have crossed a line that everyday people are not likely to support.
Powerful Democrats such as Rep. Jerry Nadler, Rep. Adam Schiff, and others have targeted the president’s family and businesses in an attempt to throw mud at the bloodline. Just a few months into the new Congress, Democrats have taken aim at 81 people associated with the Trump’s and even tried to summon one of the president’s sons before a biased committee. Moderate politicians, however, are warning party leaders that this could be a perilous road in voters’ eyes.
“Getting to family members I think is dangerous,” Virginia Democrat and House Oversight and Reform Committee member Rep. Gerry Connolly said. “Only because it gets real personal, real fast. And it risks backfiring.”
Everyday Americans may be okay with the opposition party going toe-to-toe with a strongman like Pres. Trump. Attacking someone’s wife and children wreaks of a personal vendetta that has gone too far.
4: Minority Voters Exit Democratic Party in 2020
In his first two years, Pres. Trump has done more to help minority Americans than any other in the modern era. In fact, African-American unemployment has hit a record low, and homeownership has soared. Latino-Americans are seeing the greatest uptick in household income ever in the country. While tangible gains have been made due to the president’s America First policies, Democrats are putting their support behind job-stealing illegal immigrants.
African-American leaders such as Candace Owens are urging minority voters to “BLEXIT,” a Black exit from the Democratic party. Even liberal CNN pundit Van Jones is applauding the GOP for doing right by African-Americans.
Faced with upwardly mobile job opportunities, increased school choice and a better life for their children, Pres. Trump’s approval rating among African-American voters has topped 40 percent. No Republican in recent history has ever polled that high. Stick a fork in them, the Democrats are done in 2020.
