We’re exactly one year out from the 2020 general election. And right now, it’s up to every single one of us to work together to build a brighter future for everyone because we know winning in 2020 will not happen on its own. #OneYearOneTeam— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) November 3, 2019
In the 2016 election, we came off the sidelines and went to the mat for Donald Trump in the online space. In my case, the primary issues that I was animated by which I told the media were immigration, trade, foreign policy, political correctness and campaign finance.
“President Trump is unpopular, but that doesn’t mean defeating him is going to be easy. Democrats will have to tackle issues that may alienate — and even give offense to — progressives, women, Latinos and African-Americans.
Putting together a broad enough coalition to finish the job — to win 270 Electoral College votes — will require navigating fraught cultural arenas: race, immigration and women’s rights — while dodging the broadly loathed set of prohibitions that many voters, including many Democrats, file under the phrase “political correctness.” …
Last year, Matt Grossmann, a political scientist at Michigan State, “reviewed nearly every academic article containing the name ‘Donald Trump’,” and concluded that “attitudes about race, gender, and cultural change played outsized roles” in Trump’s victory. Trump’s adamant “aversion to political correctness,” Grossmann argued, was a crucial factor in the outcome in 2016 …”
Donald Trump ticked all those boxes in 2016:
- He was trashing hidebound norms and slaughtering cuckservatives much to our enjoyment.
- He promised an America First foreign policy which would feature a new relationship with Russia and a pullback from endless wars.
- He self-financed his campaign to establish his bonafides as a populist who could not be controlled by the donors.
- He was going to build a huge wall on the Mexican border, deport illegal aliens, slash legal immigration, etc.
- He was going to end our globalist free trade policies.
From my perspective, the Democrats have gone insane and plunged off the deep end of radicalism into transgenderism and Trump Derangement Syndrome. At the same time, Donald Trump drowned in the swamp of mainstream conservatism and his 2020 campaign hasn’t excited me. That’s where the race stands today a year out from the 2020 election.
