Trump Actually Has a Pretty Easy Way to Win in 2020
When the Democratic Party officially nominated Hillary Clinton to run against Donald Trump in 2016, many thought we were going to be treated to one of the easiest slam dunks in American political history. And, well, we all know how that turned out…
Going into 2020, however, it’s often difficult to see where it’s really going to go. Obviously, Trump was underestimated in 2016, in large part due to the fact that it was hard to imagine a man who had never run for office in his life actually beating a career politician in a general election. But, President Trump has a real record to run on now, and this both helps him and hurts him.
The way this helps him is obvious: Trump is running on a solid economy, no major foreign conflicts, and on top of baseless attempts to remove him from office.
However, Trump is hindered by the fact that even those who support him are at odds with him on a personal level. And this matters a lot more than you might think: after all, he is 0-and-2 for gubernatorial elections in 2019. Kentucky and Louisiana should be easy victories for Republicans, but they weren’t with Trump being the face of the party.
As conservatives, we have to be honest with ourselves: 2020 is going to be a difficult win. However, his strategy for coming out on top may not be too different from his strategy from 2016.
