Can be, and will be

Democratic pollsters are beginning to wake up to the probability that the 2020 Trumpslide is coming:
To many political observers over the past year, the prospect of President Donald Trump’s reelection looked doubtful at best. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon reportedly gave Trump a 30 percent chance of finishing his term. Mike Murphy, the longtime GOP consultant and NeverTrumper, said that Trump will only be president “until early 2019.” And JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, like many others, bet more modestly: that Trump would be the first one-term president since George H. W. Bush.

These predictions were understandable. In 2017, it seemed, every day brought another Trump scandal, a bombshell in the Russia story, a brawl in the White House, or a diplomatic crisis, which explains why Trump’s approval rating last year was a historic low for a president’s first year in office. By year’s end, Democrats were anticipating a sweeping victory in this year’s midterm elections, with the opportunity to take back the House and perhaps even the Senate, and an enormous field of candidates was unofficially lining up for the party’s 2020 primary.

But recent data should trouble them. Internal polling by the Democratic group Priorities USA showed the president’s approval rating had climbed to 44 percent in early February, which “mirrors Trump’s improving position in public polls.” Gallup finds a narrow majority of Americans support his handling of the economy, and the new Republican tax law is getting more popular.

“I think people just kind of assume he’s a goner,” FiveThirtyEight statistician Nate Silver told me recently, “but look, he’s now more in a range where presidents have recovered to win reelection. His approval rating is up to 41 or 42 percent in our tracking. That verges on being a normal number that resembles what happened to Reagan or Clinton or Obama in their second years.” (Silver noted over the weekend that Trump dipped to 39 percent in their tracking.) As Jim Messina, who managed President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, warned earlier this month, “Donald Trump can absolutely be reelected.”
The God-Emperor isn't merely going to win, he's going to absolutely trounce the Democratic candidate so badly that I expect the top potential challengers to decided to steer clear before the primaries start and leave this one to the elderly whites to lose. An independent challenge from some Never-Trump no-hoper is probable, as well as a white female sacrificial lamb from the Democrats. Neither one will likely provide much of a speed bump to the Trump Re-election Train.

Trump isn't just a good president. He is very likely going to be a great president, if he has the courage to ignore the press and ignore his talentless, ignorant advisors who keep trying to sabotage and control him. Build the Wall, Drain the Swamp, and Break the Pedo State. Nothing else really matters.

I already consider Trump to be as good as Reagan, if not better in certain ways. Reagan is the only other president from my lifetime that I liked. The rest of them, both pre and post Reagan, were no good.

I will also reiterate that, if Trump does not complete his term for any reason, I will consider it a coup and will act appropriately. I can also assure you that there are millions of people who feel the same about this as I do, and are likely way more pissed off than I am as well.

I believe there is an expression that freedom requires eternal vigilance (meaning one can never let their guard down or allow themselves to become cocky).

The idea that Trump is going to lose in 2020 is just more wishcasting from the same people that said he couldn't possibly when in 2016, that it was inconceivable. And to them, it is. He just does not fit into their concept of the universe. They're incapable of incorporating him into their worldview. They want to believe that he is just a one time aberration and that the people who should be in charge (which is them and people like them) will reassert their control over the benighted masses and continue the institution of the secular utopia.

The 2015-16 presidential primaries and election were the greatest show on Earth, and it was a pleasure and a privilege to watch Donald J. Trump stomp the combined media and political establishments like a great yuge unstoppable golden-haired Godzilla.

My only regret about Trumpslide 2020 is that we probably won't get to see him bullycide Jeb! Bush again, but hopefully the President can find time to attach a "kick me" sign to the guac merchant's back and then stuff him into a locker.

Hillary Clinton will almost certainly run again, even if only as a sinister, cackling hologram with lemur's eyes. Much lulz will be had as the mad-eyed evil crone coughs and croaks her way through yet another round of tone-deaf pandering to people she obviously despises.

I think this might actually kill her, but they'll probably just keep her rapidly decaying cadaver locked in the exo-pantsuit and insist that smell is the aroma of how much she cares about wimminandchildren.

Blogger Looking Glass February 27, 2018 11:39 AM  

I really do hope the Dems nominate one of the old, White guys, though it looks like the field will be designed (yes, designed) to get Kamala Harris through. That's actually an easier electoral prospect, in some ways, especially in the Upper Midwest. Mostly as she's a more shrill harpy than Hillary, which is saying something. (The thinking is that they can bring Black turnout back up in several key States, and you can see some of the gameplan in the release of Black Panther.) But "Steal yo money, steal you man" Harris won't really have reach outside of CA and the North East.

But the real reason I want an older, white dem? Because I want to watch Trump abuse the hell out of him. Full "Chad Alpha" stuff. And, because of identity politics, we don't have to dance around any subject. Getting to spend 6 months emasculating the Dem nominee would be fun.

Still, no election is guaranteed, so it has to be earned. That's the reality of the matter, even if the Dems are going to nominate some coastal resident and we get another repeat of "everyone vs LA & NYC".

One last thing: these same nimrods that convinced themselves that Hillary was a shoe-in are believing any of the polling? The only Trump weakness is if they can find Ross Perot 2.0, however no one has that level of national profile. (And that ignores that Trump *is* Ross Perot 2.0.)

So if convicted by the Senate, and the judgement is to bar him, he can't run again. But there's no requirement that the Senate reach such a judgement, evne if they convict him.

There are enough RINOs to go along with the Dems, although they may draw the line at Pence. The hate for Trump among the establishment makes me think that there are good odds that it passes the required 67 Senators, especially if the Republicans get trounced in the midterms which is what I expect given that Trump is not on the ballot so most of the Trump voters will stay home. Do not underestimate the hate for Trump by the establishment Republicans, just look at what happened to Judge Moore for an example for them cutting off their nose despite their face.

If the Dems take control of the House (which I think unlikely), it will be by a narrow margin. They may be stupid enough to impeach Trump, but he's got enough strength in the Senate to rebuff it.

Quite aside from the fact that it would be even less possible to impeach Pence. He doesn't have Trump's vulnerabilities.

No. I think the Dems are in the situation the GOP was in for the 1996 cycle. Too many superannuated candidates who had been rejected by the electorate. Plus a younger generation who come from the Rabid Dog Left. Finally, they haven't figured out that they won't be running against Trump Who Has No Experience. They'll be campaigning against a sitting President.

I'm expecting Trump to win the popular vote, and to carry all the states he won in 2016, plus NH and VA.

Lol @ the nerd who unironically believes the "INPEEECH DRUMF" meme.

Democrats just dangle that as a carrot in front of their base to encourage turnout in elections. That's it. They will never have enough votes to impeach. And even if they do, it will be political suicide. Tens of millions will see it as a coup and the 2020 turnout will be a red wave like you've never seen.

It's the same reason Trump is smart enough to NOT lock up Hillary and Obama. He knows it will energize his enemies more than it will satisfy his base.

He's doing what's best, which is focus on other promises: wall, immigration reform/reduction, rejecting rapefugees, killing ISIS, ending syrian crisis AKA letting Assad win, tax cuts/reform, cutting regulations, unshackling American energy, renegotiating NAFTA and other trade deals, cancelling TPP, fixing infrastructure, protecting the 1st & 2nd amendments, fixing the North Korea situation, miscellaneous promises like recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and of course draining (a lot of) the swamp after the upcoming IG report from Michael Horowitz.

These will be enough to earn him wins in 2020 and possibly even 2018.

You have to love how they still don't get it: "his base is a cult, etc." Outside of academia (looking at you Sabato) or pollsters who have finally met their match (*cough* Nate Silver *cough), people were long overdue ready for a change. Trump was that change. He's done more in a year than most dithering "conservatives" "Republicans" etc. have done in their entire career.

They can't admit they fucked up and ignored genuine concerns from Middle America. So they try to push fake narratives to cover up their incompetence and failures.

And also they know they can't deliver measureable results in the future. So they adopt frames of conversation where mere posturing is enough to be considered successful.

Blogger gunner451 February 27, 2018 12:54 PM  

@Garuna,

Not true, I fully supported Trump and was hopeful that he would be able to drain the swamp. However, I predicted that the bureaucracy (aka deep state) would fight Trumps reforms to a stand still and that he would not really achieve much of anything because of that. Even I didn't think that the Republicans would sabotage his agenda as much as they have but given that they are part of the deep state it was not too surprising.

If Trump is going to run on his promises what has he achieved? Has he built the wall? Nope. Has he gotten rid of ObamaCare? Well the mandate is gone so I guess that's somewhat good. Has he reversed immigration and killed DACA? Nope, in fact he seems to support DACA. Has he exited Syria now that ISIS is done? Nope, now they're talking about starting a war with Iran while building bases in Syria.

In order for Trumps base to get out for the midterms he needs to start winning those promises and I just don't see it. Without that the Republicans will lose big this midterm. If they lose big then the knives come out as he'll be seen as weak.

But really all of that is kind of pointless in a way, you can't solve a moral crisis with politics. And the reality is that as a society we are in an ever increasing moral and societal decline that has quite clearly crossed the point of no return. Even Trump does not advocate for a return to the morals of even a decade ago let alone those that he grew up with. The soul of America has rotted out and I expect the zombie corpse to eventually collapse. Politics is simply trying to keep the corpse animated but does nothing to actually bring it back to life.

My point is that "(R) vs (D)" is essentially useless as a metric, the Iran Deal showed exactly: (1) that "both sides" were in on it, (2) that they don't care about the common American, and (3) that they aren't loyal to any of: the law, the country, or the people.

The better metric is "common man vs the elite" which is almost exactly equivalent to "nationalist vs globalist" -- given the realization that R/D means virtually nothing on this other metric it ALSO means that the expected "(R) vs (D)" on something like impeachment is far from a sure bet.

Interesting item I noted:
Trump's approval polls from Michigan are considerably higher than those from Texas.

The idea historically blue Michigan would approve of him LESS than historically red Texas is ridiculous.

Conclusion:
Activist pollsters are trying to astro-turf a "blue wave" narrative by messing with Texas polls. They did not think to mess with Michigan's because it's a traditionally blue state.

Anyone with half a brain can look at these 2 states, put 2 and 2 together, and see the fake polling for what it is.. not that anyone should get complacent: we've seen in Alabama and Florida what happens when complacent republicans stay home.

You know, as often as cucks repeat that canard it's still not true. He has already accomplished a HUGE number of his promises. And the fact that he is still working his ass off on the ones that have been blocked is more than enough to get him re-elected.

We are used to politicians that forget their promises the moment the RNC celebration ends. The fact that he even remembers them is better performance than we have had since Washington.

Hillary had the sympathy factor going for her since everyone knew Bill was a lying, disloyal SOB. Michelle isn't going to be able to obtain similar public sympathies unless Barack's secrets start getting aired. And if those secrets turn out to be as Grindresque as I believe they probably are, any sympathy for Michelle will quickly morph into unspoken disgust.

Barack Obama didn't formally announce his 2012 reelection campaign until April of 2011, but as I recall he was very disappointing to Democrat Congressmen who were expecting more help from him in the mid-terms and didn't get it. Starting so early means that Trump can collect campaign contributions, which I believe he can then legally transfer to other election campaigns as he pleases, as well as treating endorsement appearances as his own campaign stops.

From CNN: "The campaign also said in the announcement that it would be involved in the 2018 midterm election by 'providing candidates with general support, endorsements and rallying the support of the political grassroots by engaging Trump supporters in districts and states.'"

" He has already accomplished a HUGE number of his promises. And the fact that he is still working his ass off on the ones that have been blocked is more than enough to get him re-elected."

it is to early to judge these things. He made one and only one promise that matters. The Wall. No Wall... his presidency is a failure. Period.

As for the rest... He said flat out Obamacare would be repealed and replaced. Now... lots of folks like to pretend that the individual mandate is obamacare. But it is not. There are literally tens of thousands of God Awful regulations that are still being enforced and are royally screwing our health care industry... negatively effecting everything from OR turnover times to drug manufacturing and driving up costs.

Its basically like saying you're gonna cure someone's cancer but only taking out 50% of the tumor.

There are a ton of promises he has not kept yet... but he still has time. He pulled us out of the paris accords. But he hasn't renegotiated NAFTA. We still have an epic trade deficit. We can go on and on.

Never the less... if the Wall gets built... all of that is irrelevant. And if it doesn't... well nothing else he does will matter either.

Every indication tells me that Trump is serious about building The Wall and will do his best to get that done. (Although even The Wall is insufficient if we're still allowing planeloads of immigrants to pour into the country on a daily basis.) What worries me is his talk about DACA and gun control. The left clearly isn't interested in any long term compromise and will only interpret such an offer as a sign of weakness.

Talk is cheap. Actually delivering any sort of gun control or actually keeping the DACA Nightmares here are about the only things that could derail the Trumpslide. This is encouraging: from another thread: https://www.amren.com/news/2018/02/immigration-agency-removes-nation-immigrants-mission-statement/

Blogger Garuna February 27, 2018 5:53 PM  

If Trump is going to run on his promises what has he achieved? Has he built the wall? Nope. Has he gotten rid of ObamaCare? Well the mandate is gone so I guess that's somewhat good. Has he reversed immigration and killed DACA? Nope, in fact he seems to support DACA. Has he exited Syria now that ISIS is done? Nope, now they're talking about starting a war with Iran while building bases in Syria.

Immigration reform & Wall: In progress currently.

Obamacare replacement: In progress currently. John McCain blocked skinny repeal. So it's having to be done piece by piece instead. As you mentioned, the individual mandate has been repealed.

Syria solution: In progress currently. Again as you mentioned, Trump finally allowed ISIS be destroyed. We'll see how he progresses from here.

I never expected protected elites to be locked up. And I never expected Trump to single-handedly drain the entire swamp. That would have to be a multi-decade process of replacing globohomo elected officials with nationalist ones.

But aside from that, most of Trump's promises are either fulfilled or in progress. It's silly to complain that he hasn't completed everything in one year, when he still has 3-7 years left.

Your complaints speak to your lack of familiarity with the political world and its sluggishness. Trump is accomplishing things at a pace that is extremely rare.

In fact, most of the "blackpill" complaints against him come from people who don't understand politics and unironically say things like "why doesn't he just immediately round up and deport every illegal man, woman, and child?"

He can't just go turbo deportation mode immediately because he would be removed from office and replaced by a puppet. The disaster would be used as propaganda to block any other genuine nationalists from winning again. America would only have globohomo presidents after that. Nightmare scenario.

Trump is working more strategically to actually move things rightwards long-term.

Blogger Long Live The West February 27, 2018 5:55 PM  

To those who are 'worried' about Trump backsliding:

Who else has fought like Trump? It shouldn't be too hard for even the average American to see that Trump has done more damage to the left than anyone in a long time. More and more people are becoming aware of corruption in both the government and media like never before. Is it anywhere near enough to stop America's downfall? So far, not even close.

But it's progress that NO ONE else has made. It's progress he CONTINUES to make. He's far from perfect, but if you abandon everyone who makes a mistake you're going to die alone. Convince people to vote in the 2018 elections. Get out there and change things yourself if you're upset with the way everyone else is doing it.

Some (such as Nate) may disagree, but I grin when I see things like him raising their offer on DACA, but tying it to things their base can't accept, like an end to chain migration. Or talking about bump stocks after Parkland -- which by having nothing to do with it, showcases both the Dems' showboating and their insincerity, as more died in Las Vegas...but they can't go home with just that.

Trump is crazy...like a fox. Back in the Bush 43 days, despite the Bush Derangement Syndrome of the media and the Dem base (BIRM), the Dems could pretend to grudgingly compromise on crony capitalism, the Repubs could pretend to grudgingly compromise on cultural revolution, and they would all go home together with their mutual class prejudices all advanced.

But TDS is far more powerful, permeating not just the left base but also the bifactional establishment. So it's like he's just taunting them with generous compromises that would get them roasted over an open fire if they accepted. Instead of seeing "Ha! He's weak!" I find it far more likely that they see "Is he trying to get me killed?!"

There is great hope in Gen Z. My 20 year-old son is the president of a group of 25+ young men that are all about earning and exercising political power. They have helped a local big city mayor get elected, parlayed that into working closely with a solid gubernatorial candidate, and today he drove three hours to a neighboring state's capital to interview a candidate for a lower state office to consider providing him support.

I think the trigger point was going to an early Trump rally, being surrounded by crazy blacks, not able to be armed because we were headed through security to see the GE. It startled me and gave him a decade's education in a single night. They are kicking ass and taking names.

Totally. I was never a Yuge fan of Reagan's (never a neocon, and saw that he was followed the Republican pattern on deficits). He is way overrated by conservatives. It was really good ol' Jimmy who whooped inflation by appointing Volcker.

I was never a Republican, in fact. But never a hater either.

But the GE, man, something about him just reaches me. And when I saw how badly he was trashed in most of the media, combined with being redpilled by Vox, Stephan, Cerno and others, the decision to vote for him was easy.

One of my brothers is a shitlib who has practically stopped talking to me. The other, who claims to be a leftist/socialist (but not really) voted for Trump because he hated Hillary so badly.

I've seen firsthand how Immigration has ruined the Golden State, and made it a one party state. I had no idea how it started with Reagan until reading Vox.

Peace Y'all, and keep the faith.

The typical American presidential election gives the voter with a choice between being eaten by a Lion or a Tiger.

Fortunately or unfortunately, both major parties never manage to nominate equally capable candidates. What we get instead are two unequally bad ideas so the winner ends up being the one, not quite as bad as the other. Yes, we generally end up with the lesser of two evils....lesser evils, to be sure, but evil nonetheless.

Like president James Buchanan, Donald Trump is not going to be the solution to our national problems....much of his effort and attention is clearly focused on cleaning up the messes created by Obama. What Trump buys us is some time (and I fear that time is being wasted, rather than being used wisely to prepare for the national crisis).

In many ways, Trump might be compared to president Andrew Johnson.....who became president when Lincoln was assassinated. Johnson was a Democrat, facing a hostile press and even more hostile cabinet and Congress. He was definitely an outsider to the party in power in Washington, during his term of office, and powers ordinary for the president, were deliberately limited and constrained by the Congress and cabinet members.

WE see this clearly and openly as the government denies Trump the powers and discretion they generously provided to Obama, even months before Trump took office. Now those same powers are kept in a locked box, surrounded by Federal judges.
