If I know anything about the Democrats, it’s that they’re desperate to unseat President Trump from the Oval Office. And on paper, it seems like the left have a slam-dunk opportunity. Although Trump recently received a record-high job approval rating, it’s at 44%. That’s not exactly a confidence-inspiring figure.
Moreover, we’re in an incredibly divisive period. Every time I tune into the mainstream news outlets, I’m inundated with stories about the President’s racism. Now I know these are wholly slanderous and libelous accusations. However, the point remains that the left control the mainstream narrative. Thus, the media’s words have incredible power and influence.
Nevertheless, I’m confident now that President Trump will win his re-election bid. Even more so, I believe it will be a landslide, greater than his margin of victory in 2016.
How can I be so sure? Let’s take a trip back four years ago.
Ole Bernie Can Beat Trump…
During the campaign trail leading up to the 2016 elections, the Democrats viewed proceedings with an air of arrogance. They viewed the Republican proceedings as a joke. Here was Donald Trump, a real estate mogul turned reality TV star making a mockery of the political system.
Yet even when he was making serious progress, the Democrats doubted him. To be fair, I think I would do the same if I were in their shoes. As far as I’m aware, no one has won the Presidency of the U.S. without having some political experience.
In contrast, the Democrats had a range of viable candidates with the traditional experience necessary to hold the executive office. One of them was Bernie Sanders. In polls, he had a great chance of beating Trump head-to-head.
Of course, that’s not how things went down…
Democrats Made a Critical Mistake, and Never Learned from It
In the Democratic National Convention, the powers within the left gave the candidacy to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. That left many Bernie supporters reeling. Instinctively, they knew that Sanders had the best chance to beat “The Donald.”
What the Democrats later experienced is what academics call the transitivity problem. In short, just because Sanders can beat Trump does not mean that whoever beats Sanders can do the same.
While very liberal, Sanders appeared reasonable and likeable. At least on the surface, he was more malleable toward middle-of-the-road solutions. However, Clinton was different. She had an extreme agenda that alienated political fence-sitters.
And that’s what we’re seeing today. All I see from either frontrunners Kamala Harris or Joe Biden is crazy talk: confiscating guns, opening borders, that sort of thing.
It’s the kind of crap that got Clinton booted. And more than likely, we’ll see a repeat unless the Democrats learn their lesson beforehand.
