Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Democrats are once again underestimating Donald’s Trump’s electability in 2020, and they are well down the path to being fooled twice.
Is Trump a slime ball? Oh yeah. Big time.
Does Trump lie? Oh yeah. Big time.
Is Trump a terrible representative on the world stage? Yup.
Does Trump have things in his tax returns he does not want the voting public to see? Obviously.
Do republicans care?
Because Republicans and Trump supporters view the situation as this – none of the above mentioned flaws impact them personally, whereas tax cuts, strong borders, business deregulation and various other Trump policies do.
They voted for the policies and not the man, and most likely will again in 2020.
Democrats simply cannot fathom this, and they continually attack the man.
They attack his lies.
They attack his etiquette on the world stage.
They attack his reluctance to release his tax returns.
They attack his affairs and hush money payments.
They attack his speaking gaffes and perceived fondness towards Vladimir Putin, conspiracy theorists and even white supremacists groups.
Democrats fill countless hours of radio and television talk shows criticizing the man and very little time going after the policies.
And that is a fatal mistake that may once again cost democrats the White House in 2020.
Because any character attack on Trump is meaningless to those that cast their vote for him back in 2016.
Republicans knew they were not voting for a good person when they went to the ballots in 2016. Their vote was cast for the policies and not the man.
It is almost incomprehensible to believe that such a large portion of the voting public simply does not care about the character or personal flaws of the man they have chosen to lead the nation.
But that is indeed the case and it’s a game democrats must begin playing.
It is about policies and direction. And the only way for democrats to take back the White House in 2020 is to start focusing on detailed polices and lay out a clear alternative direction for this nation.
Because as strange as this may sound, the person chosen to actually implement the policies means very little to the voting public.
