Is Trump Heading for a Landslide Victory?

            It seems that President Donald Trump may be heading for a landslide victory in November. The Democrats in the House of Representatives must be insane because they learned nothing from their impeachment circus. It seems that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California is looking to impeach Trump again for abuse of power. I wonder whether Schiff or the Californians voting in his district will learn their lesson first. I am told that insanity is doing the same thing time after time and expecting different results. Is Schiff insane? How can he possibly think that another impeachment circus would help Democrats? Trump’s supporters increased as the impeachment trial continued.

            It is beginning to look like socialist/communist Bernie Sanders will be the Democrat nominee for president in 2020. Columnist Ed Mazlish had the following to say about Sanders.

Bernie is the guy with whom Democratic voters are most comfortable deep in their hearts. He says all the things the others believe and that Democratic voters feel, but he says it all without dilution and without intellectual compromise. His intellectual consistency makes him the most comfortable candidate to the Democratic base – they know that when it comes to policy, Bernie will not embarrass and will not disappoint. When he speaks, Democrats nod their heads in agreement – even the ones who oppose him. That is a huge asset when running in a hotly contested primary.

Bernie is also the candidate with the most committed followers. His organization is second to none in the Democratic field. But while organization and intellectual consistency are important, they are not enough to win the nomination alone, as Ron Pall found out during his runs for the Republican nomination. The base of the electorate needs to be comfortable with the candidate in order for him to win the nomination. Republicans were never really comfortable with Ron Pal’s foreign policy plans – but Democrats are deeply comfortable with every one of Bernie’s policy positions.

            If Bernie wins the Democrat nominee, the race for the White House will be between a self-acknowledged socialist/communist and an America-loving patriot. Since 53% of Americans say that they will not vote for a socialist, what do you think the result will be? Even former Vice President Joe Biden says that it will be difficult for Democrats to beat Trump if they must defend socialism!
