The Electoral College shows a collapse in the Democratic party’s unity. The ‘blue wave’ could be losing it’s steam as President Trump’s restructuring pays off. We have witnessed the benefits of Trump’s plans in the 60-year low unemployment rate, wage increase, and economic stimulation.
As we get closer to the 2018 primaries the GOP candidates speak up on their support of the President. We expect more to jump onto the ‘Trump train’, if they want to win. The best strategy in this year’s elections will be unity and strong values. The American people are sick of ‘every man (or woman) for themselves’ strategy and want a strong party they can be proud of.
So far, the Democratic party is NOT it. Even Bernie Sanders sees the writing on the wall. The former presidential candidate insists that Democrats have embraced a losing strategy for too long – as it continues to implode.
“I think what is clear to anyone who looks at where the Democratic Party today is that the model of the Democratic Party is failing,” Sanders told CBS’s John Dickerson on Face The Nation.
As Written By NPR:
GOP pollster John McLaughlin, who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign, says if Republican candidates want to get the Trump voter to turn out this year, it makes sense to run as close to Trump as possible. “The Democrats organically are getting out their anti-Trump vote, and the Republicans need to get out that pro-Trump voter who didn’t vote in 2014, but came out in 2016 because of Donald Trump.”
That strategy is not without risks. Republicans running as mini-Trumps in primaries could be making themselves more vulnerable in the November general election where a more competitive and diverse electorate will decide the winner.
Operatives like McIntosh say Republicans have made a different calculation about 2018. “I think the old formula is that you want the purple-y candidate or the squishy candidate so he can appeal to both sides in the general election is a recipe for failure for Republicans this year,” he said.
