Liberals are melting down. They’re on “full tilt.” They’ve lost their minds. President Trump has routed them. Democrats are about to become an insignificant minority party.
Look no further than the news of the past few days.
President Trump’s approval rating at Rasmussen (the most accurate poll of the 2016 election) is at 50%. That’s the highest of his presidency. It’s far higher than on the day he was elected president. More importantly, its far higher than Obama’s approval rating at the same time of his presidency.
Only two months ago, the Generic Congressional Poll showed Democrats winning by an 18-point landslide. Today it shows Republicans winning.
The latest Consumer Confidence poll was out on Tuesday. It shows consumers more optimistic than at any time since 2000 Who was president 18 years ago? Bill Clinton- the last president to preside over a booming economy.
The New York Times admitted days ago that the Trump tax law is now favored by a majority of Americans. Even more remarkable, the New York Times quoted this columnist in a recent article on President Trump. When the NY Times quotes Wayne Root, either hell has frozen over, or the political landscape has moved dramatically.
Then on Tuesday, Trump did the unthinkable. He became the earliest president in history to declare for re-election! He even named his 2020 campaign manager. Trump announced 980 days before election day.
On the same day, actress Jennifer Lawrence announced in a Vanity Fair interview that it was a mistake for Hillary Clinton to belittle Trump supporters…and an even bigger mistake for actresses and entertainers like her to get involved in politics. She admitted only 25% of Americans call themselves liberals, but recognizes it takes more than 25% of Americans to buy her movie tickets, if she wants to have a successful career.
So, you’d think maybe, in light of all this news, Democrats might see the light. At least some of them might come to their senses. Nope.
First a look at what’s happening in California. My friends have sent me photos of billboards popping up all over Los Angeles that proclaim, “DISOBEY TRUMP.” These signs are touting the re-election campaign of a Democrat State Senator. She is openly committing sedition- defined as inciting people to disobey the laws of the state.
The Attorney General of California Xavier Becerra warned publicly recently that California will PROSECUTE any business owner who cooperates with ICE. California’s AG is threatening to put business owners in prison for obeying the laws of our land, and obeying a federal law enforcement agency. He is also committing sedition.
But wait, it gets better. At the California Democrat Convention over this past weekend, the delegates preferred AG candidate Dave Jones over Becerra.They thought Becerra wasn’t radical enough!
Then there’s five-term incumbent U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein. California’s Democrat delegates voted overwhelmingly to not endorse Feinstein. They voted 54% to 37% for her opponent, radical progressive (ie Marxist) Kevin de Leon. He supports single-payer healthcare; immediate legalization of Dreamers without any restrictions or compromise; massive taxes to pay for the needs of illegals; and criticizes Feinstein for supporting school vouchers for poor students in Washington DC.
Obama led the Democrat Party to disaster. Under his leadership, Democrats lost hundreds of seats in Congress, state legislatures, Governors, Lt Governors, Secretaries of State. Obama’s radical policies and ideas led the GOP to take power of all levels of government.
But Democrats didn’t learn a lesson. They’ve moved left. They’re looking for a second helping of landslide defeat. The Democrat Party of your father and grandfather is dead.
But California is a bridge too far. California is now a foreign state. The Democrat Party there is set up to support radical causes the rest of America is repulsed by. They fight for the rights of illegals over legal citizens.
The future of the Democrat Party is radicals like Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris. None of them can win a national election. Not as long as America is still dominated by people born in American.
Remember the hit single, “Video Killed the Radio Star.” Who would have thought it possible just 18 months ago? But Trump has killed the Democrat Party. He’s driven them so far left, Trump now looks reasonable to the vast majority of Americans.
