The media naturally wants its viewers and readers to think there’s a big election coming up that will be too close to call. That is because they need viewership that will spell advertising dollars.
But in reality, the 2020 election isn’t going to be close. Why, you may ask?
The first reason is the robust economy. Americans vote with their wallets, and at present that looks good. The first-quarter gross 2019 domestic product growth rate was 3.2 percent. Not the first quarter above the 3.0 level in this administration, but Obama never reached it in 32 quarters (eight years) as president.
Those numbers telegraph where the economy will be in November 2020, and that is not a recession. When GDP growth is negative for two consecutive quarters or more, look for a coming recession. That has yet to happen under Trump’s watch.
The economy is strong and getting stronger. That includes innovation, which is accelerating, not declining. Therefore, is anybody except the hateful media surprised Trump has a GOP approval rating above 80 percent?
But there are so many other reasons the 2020 election is basically decided. For instance:
The deregulation of business and industry is rapidly accelerating, creating huge job growth as corporations are freed up to make bigger profits and hire more American workers.
Trump’s handling of the federal judiciary is phenomenal. America now has more rule-of-law judges, disinclined to accept bureaucrats’ excuses for over-regulation. In other words, America’s judges are getting more conservative and less likely to legislate from the bench. Bad news for liberals whose last vestige for sympathy was far-left judges.
Other issues have been addressed including the U.S. military being brought up to date and fully funded. America’s relationship with our only democratic ally in the Middle East, Israel, is better than ever.
Meanwhile, the divided Democrats find themselves more removed than ever from America’s mainstream voters. They face a sort of Sophie’s choice of far-left socialist Bernie Sanders, ultra-liberal Kamala Harris or tired-out former vice president Joe Biden.
Let’s get real. Socialist Sanders and ultra-left Harris are way too far to the left. There is no chance they can get a plurality of votes in 2020. Biden is trying desperately to look like them, but that’s like John Wayne in a musical.
Trump handles the media pressure with ease. In fact, he welcomes it. It only makes his base stronger. Meanwhile, the Democrats are scattered all over the board with a single issue of hating Trump. Forty percent of the country right now likes him enough to vote for him. At least another 10 percent will consider him when they see the lunatic fringe that is the other choice.
And did the stark fact that unemployment remains incredibly low come up? The markets are soaring, and people are making money. Aside from NE elites, permanent Trump-haters and young adults in their parent’s basement, who will vote for a Democrat?
The deck is stacked against the Democrats. The reality of open borders is understood to be an unqualified disaster by most of the country, and most of the country understand the Democrats to be arguing for a de facto open-border system, if not a de jure one.
Good luck with that Bernie, Kamala, Liz and all the rest. Your New Green Deal is bad science drawn in a coloring book. It would cost around $100 trillion, and only a four-year-old would support such insanity.
How about the cry for every American to get Medicare? The age-old question to those who support such craziness is, who is going to pay for it? Oh, we know the far-left want it to attract people who will vote for anything free, but that is nowhere near a majority.
Nothing could have been a worse week for the Democrats than last week’s message of a booming economy. But the Demos, still licking their wounds following Trump’s clean bill of health from the Mueller Report findings continue down the losing path of impeachment.
Alas, the party seems collectively intent on poring over the Mueller report yet again in the hope that, somehow, someway, there’s something there. Here’s a news flash far-left. The probe is over. No collusion. No obstruction.
So now that there’s a great economy, rising values of savings, low unemployment across every demographic, clarity about allies and enemies abroad, and a rebuilding military. What do Democrats run on? The answer is, it’s practically impossible, especially with the crowd of under-achievers they have attracted as candidates.
