  1. If you want to know if Trump will win in 2020, a good place to start, would be to ask why he won in 2016. Or stated another way – why Ds lost.

    If those conditions remain present in 2020, then chances are he’ll win again.

    Disclosure: I formerly served as Nevada’s Attorney General. I’m now formally registered as Non-Partisan. I have a healthy disdain for both political parties. They’re both corrupt and incompetent.

    I voted for Trump, because I despised HRC. In my opinion, she represented everything that was wrong with American politics (the inauthenticity, the corruption, the self-enrichment, the intense partisanship, the pay to play mentality, the hypocrisy and duplicity, and the dishonesty and distortion).

    In my opinion HRC is a criminal and she ought to be prosecuted, for political corruption, for mishandling of classified information, and for destruction of evidence. No one should be above the law, not Trump or HRC. No one!

    I left the Republican Party out of protest over Trump. In my opinion, Trump lacks the moral authority to serve as POTUS. Much like HRC did.

    I voted for him, because he was the better of two evils. While his dishonesty and duplicity were obvious, they were also in the private sector. Hers were in the public sector, which to me, made her sins more significant and change less likely. This didn’t absolve Trump of his sins. It just made hers worse and more relevant – when considering who should hold public office. There was also the hypocrisy. With Trump you got what you saw – a money hungry narcissist. A braggart and a blowhard. Hilary was very different. You didn’t get what you saw. And that made her far more dangerous. What you saw was a woman who supposedly cared about others. What you got was a lying, manipulative, Machiavellian, fraud who was highly intelligent and capable of unknown harm. Someone masquerading as a patron saint of the people, while trading on inside information, moving furniture out of the White House, creating the country’s most lucrative and corrupt pay to play schemes and then destroying the evidence. With her there was zero hope of reform. With him, slim but some.

    It is highly unlikely that the Ds will allow HRC, or anyone like her to run again. And it is highly unlikely that the D candidate will be anywhere near as disliked, distrusted, or as polarizing as HRC.

    However, the Democratic Party has moved further to the left since HRC lost. And that will not help Ds in 2020.

    The new wing of the Democratic Party, (the Obama wing) which now controls the Party, is the same group that HRC allowed to quarterback her 2016 defeat. And if they continue to call the shots, and employ the same divisive tactics, Ds will likely lose again.

    I’m originally from Wisconsin. I was just there last week. Wisconsin is one of the key states that Ds lost in 2016. A state that had voted reliably Democratic for over 50 years.

    Ds lost key Midwestern states in 2016 because of two things. The first was HRC. The second, was the direction of the Democratic Party, a direction that became apparent, during the 2016 election, and caused Midwestern Democrats to re-examine their priorities and their options.

    In 2016, Midwestern voters saw the new face of the Democratic Party. The race baiting (designed to turn out black voters), and the riots across the country, that flowed as a consequence, didn’t sit well with Midwestern voters.

    People saw Democratic donors, like Soros, contributing over 30 million, to groups that paid to bus professional organizers and paid agitators from N.Y.C. and Chicago to Ferguson, and to places like Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Chicago, were riots erupted. These riots were in their communities. And their communities are tinderboxs for more social unrest. They want law and order. They don’t want agitation and rioting.

    They saw Obama meeting dozens of times with anti-Trump organizers and protestors and with BLM organizers. Then they saw protestors at BLM rallies in Minneapolis chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry um like bacon”, and police being assassinated at a BLM rally in Dallas.

    They saw a liberal media that was shamelessly in bed with the Democratic Party, fanning the flames of discontent, and they lost all trust in the media as a consequence. They saw the media’s transparent attempts to mislead voters, and shape public opinion, with choreographed programming, blatant misinformation and distortion, and they rejected the media.

    They saw attacks from the left, on Freedom of Speech, the flag, the national anthem, police, the military, the Second Amendment, patriotism, Capitalism, and many of the values that have historically come to define America as a nation. Values that most Midwestern voters believe in.

    They saw an emphasis on globalism and open borders, rather than on America’s working class population and taxpayers – them!

    In sum, Midwestern voters saw the Democratic Party morph into something that they didn’t recognize, didn’t agree with, and didn’t like.

    The bottom line is this. That dog won’t hunt in 2020, any more than it did in 2016.

    So, for Ds to win in 2020, two things need to happen. They need a better candidate (someone like Biden), and they need to pivot away from the disastrous far left strategy, that cost them the 2016 election.

    Absent those changes, they will be unable to regain the Midwestern voter that they need for electoral victory in 2020. And they may damage their ability to win beyond that.

    Unless of course, the Republicans snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, by continuing to morph into a right wing, fascist, cluster-f#*k, that becomes even more repulsive than their far left Antifa, anarchists, counterparts.

    Unfortunately, the media can no longer play a positive role in even educating Republican voters. It has lost all credibility with them. It no longer has the ability to even alert moderate Republicans to the perverse transformation, occurring within the Republican Party.

    It’s a very sad and troubling state of affairs we find ourselves in. And it’s corrupt, opportunistic politicians, from both sides of the aisle, that are causing it, and those with the most extreme views, on both sides of the political spectrum, and a profit driven, segmented media, that are fueling it.
