The Republican Party’s Biggest Problem In 2020 IS NOT Trump


Believe it or not, the Republican Party has a bigger problem heading into the 2020 elections than Donald Trump. The fact that the Party has not had a fresh idea since 1980 has led most American voters to trust Democrats more on nearly every issue across the board, and short of a miraculous plan to help out the middle class, Republicans in the House and Senate are poised to suffer major losses because they don’t know what they’re doing.

You know, it's easy to think that Donald Trump would be the republican party's biggest liability heading into the 2020 election. I mean, the guy is struggling to get an approval rating up to 50% I know he tweeted out Friday morning that it was at 50% but that's literally based on one single pole from Rassmussen who always is a little bit pro Republican. So their numbers are a little bit inflated. So his real, his aggregate approval rating is still below 50% but George W. Bush won reelection with an approval rating slightly under 50% and it's the incumbent bounce. So Donald Trump is already in a fairly decent position heading into 2020 yes. Most people don't like him. Most people still, according the latest polls, think that collusion happened. They don't like his policies. They don't like his tax cuts. They don't like his wall, but he's still in decent shape. He is not the Republican Party's biggest liability ahead of the 2020 election. Their biggest problem, the Republican's biggest problem is that they don't have any ideas. And yes, I know before you say it, I know I have said this many times over the last few months and guess what? I am going to continue saying it until probably I stopped doing this all together because the Republican Party has no ideas. But the reason I'm bringing this up today is because earlier this past week, Washington Post's conservative columnist, Jennifer Rubin finally also admitted this, you know, she has been a huge critic of Donald Trump and the direction of the Republican Party. That's true, but she also agrees that Trump's not their biggest liability in 2020 it's the fact that they don't have any ideas and the few things they tried to do, which is really two things, a, a repeal and replace, which the public got furious about and cutting taxes for the wealthy. Those were horrible moves. The public hates them. Both the public is pissed off because people are a middle class and working class people there, they're paying more in taxes while the wealthy elite get to write off the entire cost of a private jet. So yeah, the scam is up. We see you for what you are and you are a party with no ideas to take it back. As I so often love to do here, since 1980 the Republican party has had two ideas, cut regulations and cut taxes for the wealthy. You show me any point since 1980 where they have come up with a specific policy proposal that didn't involve deregulation or cutting taxes. That's all they've got. They are one trick ponies and at this point everybody in this country knows what that trick is. So here's why it matters. Heading into 2020 you have more Senate Republicans up for reelection. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews
