The Democrats find themselves in a bad situation.
Oh how quickly the tide can turn! I remember after Mitt Romney’s 47% comment, it looked like the Democrats may never lose another election! Do you remember it? It was the comment that torpedoed Mitt’s run for President, but the fact of the matter is, he was right! There was a built in base of 47% of the voting population that is incentivized to vote Democrat, and that number grows with each new entitlement program Obama pushed out.
It looks like 47% was going to grow over 50% and then the Republicans face a near-impossible task of asking people to vote AGAINST the free money the government is giving them. In fact, it’s what always ends a democracy, when the people realize they can vote in their own entitlements and then the whole system crumbles.
It looked like that was the direction we were headed, until Donald J. Trump realized he had to save America and he announced he was running for President. The rest, as they say, is history!
And now, the tide has turned so much that the Democrats look unlikely to win any future elections, including the important midterm 2018 elections and the next Presidential election in 2020 (yes, we ARE talking about that already!).
They face a leadership void, with their two main leaders being Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi, neither of which is very well liked. Then, of course, you have the severely-tarnished Hillary Clinton – a two-time Presidential loser. They can’t risk the hat trick I don’t think.
Here’s more of the story, from The Hill:
The Democratic Party has a leadership vacuum at the top, with many registered voters eager to see someone who is not currently on the scene become the party’s standard-bearer in 2020, according to a new Harvard-Harris Poll survey provided exclusively to The Hill.
When registered voters were asked whom they view as the leader of the Democratic Party, 40 percent said it has no leader.
Fifteen percent named former President Obama as the party’s leader. Twelve percent said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has gone out of his way not to join the Democratic Party despite running for the its presidential nomination last year.
On the question of who should be a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, Sanders led the field, at 14 percent, followed by former first lady Michelle Obama at 11 percent, Warren at 9 percent, Clinton at 8 percent, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each at 4 percent, and television personality Oprah Winfrey and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) each at 3 percent.
