A lot of people have discussed President Trump’s actions in regards to Ukraine. In fact, we just went through several months of impeachment activities because of it. It has been a hot topic in the Democratic Primary and continues to shape the narrative or the main stream media.
As I sit and think on the last few months, will the actions of President Trump affect my vote in 2020? That is exactly what Alan Dershowitz said would happen for him in 2020. Dershowitz was a member of the Trump impeachment defense team, but he is not a hardcore Republican. Dershowitz has made it no secret he voted for Clinton in 2016 in fact.
On Sunday, Dershowitz said that he would allow the actions of Trump to enter his mind as he considers his vote in 2020. But will anyone else? That’s the question. Based on continuing polls, only 5 % of American’s are torn on the impeachment proceedings against President trump.
President Trump won the presidency with 46.4% of the vote that was cast. If Trump were to truly carry 48% of eligible voters as the impeachment polls are running, he would easily win reelection in 2020. But will he? The response of those 5% in the middle will matter for sure. I also think there are many that are split outside of just that 5% as well.
I will admit that it is early to be asking such questions, but it’s worth considering the potential. We are sitting on the cusp of the first results in the 2020 primary for the Democrats. The most recent polls have Sanders as a +7 favorite in Iowa, which is a scary thought.
Will American’s really vote for someone like Sanders over President Trump? The most recent poll that I find shows Sanders as +4 over Trump nationally, which is just outside of the margin of error. I know that national polls are not reflective of the state votes. While Democrats may hate it, the electoral college guarantees that the national polls are always just a general reflection.
But the concern is that a majority of American’s would actually rather live in a socialist administration than the current one. Unemployment continues to sit at 3.5%, an insanely low number. To be honest, there are more jobs out there than there are qualified workers to fill them. Yet, Bernie Sanders says that he will guarantee jobs to anyone that wants one. A federal jobs guarantee that will ensure a livable wage. If someone wanted to work and to earn a livable wage, isn’t that possible in this economy?
The concern is not just in jobs, but also in freedom. Under a Sanders administration, people are saying they are willing to give up their rights to owning certain firearms, choosing their own healthcare, choosing their own career or even choosing how to live their life in their home without government interference.
It’s not just Sanders, but it’s many of these candidates on the left. I’ve said multiple times, I do not agree with all that President Trump has done. But consider the larger picture. If the election were held today, would you really vote for a socialist over Trump? Would you really give up all of these things, just because you hate someone?
