Why Trump will win in 2020

I don't like him, either. He's embarrassing, uncouth, and vulgar. But he will be back, and here's why:

Why Trump Will Win in 2020
Americans have seen real improvements in their lives during his presidency.
by DAVID CATRON, March 7, 2019, 6:03 PM

In his closing remarks after the only presidential debate of the 1980 campaign, Ronald Reagan famously looked into the camera and asked the voters, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” This boiled down that year’s contest to a question that most voters eventually ask themselves, consciously or not, in every election involving an incumbent president. The obvious answer in 1980 was, “No,” and Jimmy Carter became unemployed. The same implicit question will determine the outcome of the 2020 election, and President Trump’s fate. Fortunately for the nation, the clear answer will be an unequivocal, “Yes.”

Indeed, according to Gallup, the general public has already decided on the answer: “Fifty percent say they are better off today than they were a year ago… the first time since 2007 that at least half of the public has said they are financially better off than a year ago.” To put this in historical perspective Gallup points out, “Only 11 times in 109 polls stretching back to 1976 have at least half of those polled said they were in better financial shape than they had been a year prior.” And the good news doesn’t end there. A record number of Americans are optimistic about where their personal finances are headed during the next 12 months:

Americans’ optimism about their personal finances has climbed to levels not seen in more than 16 years, with 69% now saying they expect to be financially better off “at this time next year”… only two percentage points below the all-time high of 71%, recorded in March 1998 at a time when the nation’s economic boom was producing strong economic growth combined with the lowest inflation and unemployment rates in decades.


This is why the Democrats in the House have doubled down on their investigative overreach and hysterical characterizations of the President. It is why House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) has taken to suggesting that Trump is a “dictator.” This is indicative of sheer panic. Nadler and the rest of the Democratic leadership know that, unless the economy takes a dive in the next twelve months or they somehow manage to force the President out of office, the voters will pull the lever for the presidential candidate whom they trust most on the economy. And that candidate’s name will be Donald J. Trump.

But the Democrats and their friends in the media have done their best to spin the nation’s economic gains as bad news for ordinary Americans. After they tried to give erstwhile President Obama retroactive credit for the improved economy and the howls of laughter stopped, they exhumed many of the moldering arguments they used when the economy improved during the Reagan era — even such withered clichés as “trickle-down economics” and “income inequality.” And, all too predictably, economist cum columnist Paul Krugman has suddenly spotted a worldwide recession looming ominously on the horizon:

There is a significant chance the world economy is headed for a recession in 2019, according to Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman.… When asked whether investors should expect to see a recession in the coming months, Krugman replied: “I think that there is a quite good chance that we will have a recession late this year (or) next year.” He highlighted President Donald Trump’s tax cut stimulus as one area of concern, saying the program was “not very effective.”


But the people who have benefited most from Trump’s economic policies don’t read the New York Times. Nor do they devote a lot of angst to the value of the euro. Democratic propaganda notwithstanding, the beneficiaries of tax reform are not “rich.” They are, in fact, working people who had enormous difficulty finding jobs during the anemic economy that the Democrats and Obama told them was the “new normal.” And those who were lucky enough to be employed don’t see the raises, bonuses, and tax cuts they have received during the past year as the “crumbs” Nancy Pelosi sneered at in January of 2018.

Out here in the real world beyond the Beltway, working people don’t enjoy the luxuries that people like Pelosi take for granted. They certainly can’t count on the lucrative lifetime jobs that congressional Democrats call “public service.” When the demand for employees increases to the point at which it exceeds the supply of workers — and that’s where we are now — wages go up for those with jobs as well as those seeking them. This makes a real difference in the lives of real people. And these are the very people the Democrats claim to represent — blacks, Hispanics, Asians, women, etc. As the Wall Street Journal points out:

All sorts of people who have previously had trouble landing a job are now finding work. Racial minorities, those with less education and people working in the lowest-paying jobs are getting bigger pay raises and, in many cases, experiencing the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for their groups. They are joining manufacturing workers, women in their prime working years, Americans with disabilities and those with criminal records, among others, in finding improved job prospects after years of disappointment.

All of this has happened on Trump’s watch. This is not a coincidence. The President is an unapologetic advocate of free-market capitalism. He understands that tax cuts for individuals and businesses — combined with aggressive deregulation — stimulate economic growth and job creation. That translates into improvements in the lives of real people and a general sense of optimism about the future. Are the voters going to give that up for pie-in-the-sky promises from a leftwing Democrat who can’t explain how to pay for them, yet insists that the President is a crook? Nope. Trump, warts and all, will win in 2020.

The embrace of socialism by the Democrats will not work out for them. In spite of the indoctrination in the universities over the last 40 years, most people know socialism is a very bad idea. Trump will hammer the socialism=bad theme a lot during the campaign. In fact he brought it up already during the SOTU address.

If you are a Dem presidential candidate right now, you have to embrace socialism or the leftists in the party will destroy you. Bloomberg, Biden, and Clinton have all realized this reality and have bowed out of running.

And, he says them with spectacularly [bigly] bad grammar [i.e. badly grammar].

We may have a whole new dynamic in play...

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is considering an Independent 2020 presidential bid, and he tells Morning Joe why he doesn't believe what the Democratic Party stands for, why he sees himself as a legitimate Independent choice and what he really thinks about Elizabeth Warren.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8Jn0lOGXCs

It's fun to watch the Dims reaction to him. They are not happy, to say the least. :-D He certainly makes it clear he is no longer a Dim, or a Repug. His life credentials also seem sound, self made Billionaire, coming from a low class neighborhood. Trying to live the American Dream.

I have not looked into his politics very deeply yet, but he made a good first impression on me.

He feels he could win by basically getting the independent vote and the more traditional Dem and Rep voters. He also thinks if he did win, it would send a clear message to the two parties that the American people are not happy with either extremes.

Personally, I could buy into that. It would be nice to combine his run with a "Vote every incumbent out" campaign.

To me there is no downside. If he loses, he will probably detract enough votes from the Dim's that they will not be able to advace their socialist agenda. If he won, it would be great to try a new, hopefully saner, approach for the government.

So you say this in hopes that instead we'll get a POTUS who whines she can't afford an apartment, while wanting to just steal the majority of successful peoples' income? As if that would be so much better.

NYC isn't exactly enjoying the exodus of the rich recently, per NY Gov. Cuomo. He, unlike the far left, realizes there's only so much you can tax such people, and expect them to hold still for it.

Or is it that a few $billion or so isn't a "real" billionaire, since you took the short bus to school, perhaps?

I'm no fan of Trump, but the endless mindless whining isn't helping the case. Why not report facts, re his policy blunders? It's not like there is a shortage of those to choose from.
Given the track record of the perma-doomer blogs, I wouldn't bet a fast crash doomer's money on their predictions.

Can't argue with you there. I'm looking forward to it. Especially since I started learning about mindfulness and brain plasticity. There will be much to observe.

A ‘Beat Trump’ Fervor Is Producing Big Turnouts for 2020 Democrats


That was the headline. The Democrats are a diverse group. "Apathy No More" should be their motto.

Yeah the Democrats are a diverse group for sure. Black lives matter, Muslims, Antifa, Democratic Socialists, LGBTWTFBBQ, Illegals, and guilt ridden white liberals all trying to figure out which group can claim the most victimhood.

So far Muslim women seem to rank the highest on the victimhood status chart given the Dems couldn't even condemn Rep Omar for her anti-Semitic statements.

and I have to say as someone who is marginally interested in all of this living in Canada, I think she along with AOC have completely screwed any chances of the Democrats taking power for at least the next two terms. I spend a lot of my time dealing with folks from various parts of the US, I would be very surprised to see the vast majority suddenly decide they want to be Socialists/Communists.

I wish I were as confident about that. There has been an lot of indoctrination that diversity is our strength and if we could only be like Sweden we would all be happier. The demographic voting patterns of first generation Hispanic Americans is overwhelmingly Democrat. But for the white male, who has been subjected to sensitivity and diversity training for years in the corporate world, Trump is a nice change from all that. At some core level, we understand there are not 87 genders and understand open borders will destroy this country.

Trump is unabashedly an American. Arrogant, prideful, and not afraid to double down when he is attacked for various invented "crimes" from the left. Everything the white male wants to be but can't be in the modern American workplace. An unapologetic capitalist who will never apologize because of your snowflake feelings. He infuriates the left because he will not be cowed by your diversity, your sensitivity, or your outrage. He will always counter-attack. Trump is not a Republican. At least not the wimpy Republicans like a Jeb Bush or a Mitt Romney who seek approval from the leftist media. Trump just doesn't give a damn what you think about him. In all ways a refreshing change.

Yes, Trump is the Freudian Id of the American White Male.

According to Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, the id is the personality component made up of unconscious psychic energy that works to satisfy basic urges, needs, and desires. The id operates based on the pleasure principle, which demands immediate gratification of needs.
