As Democrats try and justify the numbers or weigh Democrat numbers to try and reassure their chances in 2020, all indications continue to point towards a President Trump landslide in 2020, which will likely spell doom for their Party’s chances of retaking the Senate and holding the House of Representatives as well!
Three months ago, Mike LaChance at American Lookout pointed out how Democrats are in deep doo-doo and sinking, as States that have been traditionally blue that Trump won in 2016, are not shifting their direction! In fact, they are shifting even more pro-Trump and pro-Republican, likely because of the sham impeachment inquisition that the House Democrats have been focused on for nearly the past three years! For Democrats, those numbers are not getting better, especially as their primary has turned into more of a ‘Real Housewives’ knockdown drag-out fight, rather than any semblance of an actual debate! Top that off with their agendas, and they seem to sound more like Soviet Russia, Communist Cuba, or Fascist Germany just prior during World War II!
Ultimately, Democrats need to flip a number of States to retake the Presidency, and according to Town Hall, it appears that that may be more of a pipe dream for Democrats, barring any earth-shattering revelations, and at this point, it seems that the earth-shattering revelations will do more to indict the Democrats and their radical-Socialist allies, than President Trump!
Just this week, Townhall reported…
GM Worker’s Warning to Democrats Is Showing in Latest Poll From Battleground States
Donald Trump is on track to win re-election. Forget the polls from CNN. Forget what the liberal media is doling out with their suppression coverage. As of right now, Trump is going to win. He’s the incumbent with a booming economy and a weak 2020 Democratic field. It’s also a field that is pushing a radical left-wing agenda that even has ardent liberals a bit worried.
Health care for illegal aliens and forced Medicare for All are some of the top issues being peddled by Democrats. They’re also positions that are incredibly unpopular. Medicare for All will result in the destruction of 150 million private health care plans. And yes, sorry, Democrats, but you’re wrong; Americans do like their employee-based health care plans. And do you know who else is impacted by this? Labor unions. Their health care plans are also targeted…
The Democrats’ hatred of fracking is another issue that has battleground state voters wary of a party that is rapidly becoming a Leninist sideshow. We wrote about a General Motors worker who was worried over the 2020 Democratic agenda in that it reflects that this party does not connect with anyone who isn’t an overeducated snob. There is nothing for working people in this agenda. And the polls now show it. In Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, Trump has higher approval ratings now than on Election Day 2016.
Now, President Trump’s approval rating amongst American farmers is souring, to a record high of 83% approval!
In fact, according to the latest Farm Journal Pulse Poll, which featured responses from 1,286 farmers, President Trump received an approval rating of 83%, with 64% who strongly approve, which marks his highest approval yet! Only 3% somewhat disapprove, and only 15% strongly disapprove.
Pro Farmer policy analyst Jim Wiesemeyer said…
Of note is the strongly approve category went up three percentage points from an already lofty (December) number and his highest overall approval ratings ever. That says the president’s approval is rock-solid. With the recent upbeat news on USMCA and the Phase 1 accord with China, the ratings will likely remain firm ahead. Trump needs the rural vote to keep the same states he won in 2016 in his win column come November. In fact, contacts say he is focusing on winning Minnesota this time as a backstop should he lose a state he won in 2016. That means agriculture will continue to be a key topic in the president’s re-election campaign.”
Combine that with the fact that, according to multiple reporting agencies, blue-collar Democrats who support Trump who already supported Trump overwhelmingly in November, now support the President in even greater numbers, and if Bernie Sanders is the candidate, that number is expected to skyrocket to astronomical proportions. Their reasoning is for many of the same reasons as they cited in November of last year! They said…
Voters across the “Blue Wall” states – the area in the Upper Midwest that were previously considered Democratic strongholds and where 2016 state polls underestimated President Trump’s support – are more likely to mention President Trump as their main motivation than any issue including health care (8%) and the economy (4%), which top voters’ list of key national issues for the 2020 campaign. Overall, one-fourth (23%) of voters name any issue as their main motivation for voting in 2020.
They noted that the President’s overall approval ratings have gone up from 2016 from
- Wisconsin: 35% in 2016 to 42% now!
- Michigan: 39% in 2016 to 41% now!
- Minnessota: 35% in 2016 to 41% now!
- Pennsylvania: 42% in 2016 to 39% now!
They also noted how…
health care and the economy are the top issues for voters but these issues may pull voters, especially independents, in opposite directions. President Trump garners a higher approval rating on the economy (49% approve, 50% disapprove) than on any other issue, while he garners his lowest marks on health care (39% approve, 60% disapprove). And while half of independent voters approve of the way President Trump is handling the economy, most (61%) disapprove of the way he is handling health care.
Most voters (59%) in the four states also disapprove of his job performance overall, compared to 41% who approve. Yet, the poll isn’t all bad news for President Trump, as he retains solid support among his base across the Blue Wall states. Large majorities of Republican voters approve of his job performance overall (87%) and on every specific issue tested, including the economy (94%) and health care (84%).
The report also noted how many of the Democrat voters…
overwhelmingly think the progressive policy positions included in this survey are good ideas, including the Green New Deal (92%), a pathway to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally (91%), a ban of future assault weapon sales (88%) and a ban and mandatory buyback of assault weapons (83%). Fewer, but still a majority, also say a ban on fracking (54%), stopping U.S. border detainments (56%), and a national Medicare-for-all plan (62%) – a hot-button issue in the Democratic primary race – are good ideas.
While few self-reported 2020 Democratic voters say they wouldn’t vote for a candidate who disagreed with them on any of these issue in the general election, there is some evidence that some of these progressive stances are not popular among swing voters.
Majorities of swing voters across the four states view three as bad ideas: not detaining border crossers (71%), Medicare-for-all (62%) and a fracking ban (54%). In Pennsylvania, 57% of swing voters say a fracking ban is a bad idea.
One area that the survey found that is impeding the President’s support among swing voters is in regards to the tariffs that the President has placed on goods from China and other nations! They wrote…
The Blue Wall poll also explores voters’ views on other issues, including tariffs and trade. Most voters across the four states say recent tariffs imposed on goods from China and other countries are hurting the national economy (55%) and workers in their state (55%). In addition, voters are about three times more likely to say the tariffs are hurting their families (46%) than are helping their families (14%). These shares are similar in each of the four states.
On Tuesday of this week, President Trump’s approval rating hit 52% in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, which beats Barack Obama’s by a whopping 5 points HIGHER, and at the same time in his Presidency!
Therefore, even as the establishment media continues to be reporting negatively on President Trump 96% of the time, President Trump’s approval continues to climb!
Now, the President’s overall approval continues to climb, as the President implements balanced trade, rather than simply continuing with free trade, which puts America and the American people at a tremendous disadvantage against foreign nations who impose tariffs upon our citizens, businesses, and companies! In a nutshell, Democrats are terrified, as the President continues to dismantle the Socialist swamp that has been rotting Washington D.C. for years! Furthermore, despite their well-oiled and allegiant Mainstream Media’s barrage of false and malicious reporting, which has amounted to more than 90% negative reports about this President, he has continued to gain in support and popularity with the American people! Likely because Americans finally have a President who says what he means, and does what he says! In addition, after years of Americans being forced to vote for someone who represents the swamp, we finally have a leader who is representing Middle Americans, and not just the Elites in Washington, Corporations, Hollywood, etc.!
