Warning bells go off all over for Democrats. But they choose to keep their heads firmly place up their “Schiffs”.
Their new and improved front-runner, Joe Biden exhibits signs of dementia. But Democrats are jubilant that crotchety old communist Bernie Sanders is out of the picture.
Add Trump derangement syndrome to the mix and you understand why Leftists ignore all the obvious signs. Well, some Leftists.
Apparently Rolling Stone isn’t ignoring the clues. They wrote:
What has turnout been like so far? What do those numbers mean for November? Are Democrats on pace to mobilize record numbers of voters — or is it time to freak out?
Let’s start with the Republican Party. Voters have mobilized in huge numbers even though Trump is essentially running uncontested. (The Nevada and South Carolina Republican parties canceled their elections entirely.) In New Hampshire, Trump received 129,696 votes, which is more than double what Obama got in 2012 and George W. Bush in 2004.
Apparently I’m not the only one who has looked into these numbers. In my analysis, I know Democrats should be scared. And I’m not saying it for propaganda purposes.
The article continues,
Barry Burden, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin who studies voter turnout, says Trump’s huge levels of support defy historical trends about sitting presidents who run for reelection. “A sitting incumbent running for reelection — that shouldn’t stimulate much interest,” Burden says. “It all runs a little contrary to what I think we would’ve expected.”
I agree wholeheartedly. Trump defies the experts in every way. By now, the hoopla over Trump should be over. It’s far from it.
But what about the Democrats? The article explains they have major problems:
For the Democrats, the story is less rosy. Historic turnout in the 2018 midterm elections and several special elections since Trump took office has not yet translated into similar outpourings of voter energy in the first four primaries and caucuses. Political scientists and voting experts tell Rolling Stone that the turnout so far is good but not great. In several states more people voted, or a higher share of the voting-eligible population voted, than did four years ago. But the numbers so far have not met the high-water mark of the 2008 campaign.
“We’re not seeing the sort of eye-popping turnout numbers we’ve seen over the last couple of years we’ve seen since Trump became president,” says Michael McDonald, a political scientist at the University of Florida who specializes in American elections.
McDonald says there could be several explanations for why the early 2020 contests haven’t hit 2008 turnout levels despite the high stakes of the election. “This is a choice between Democratic candidates, and so people who might be enthused or excited to vote against Trump are largely sitting on the sidelines at the moment,” he says. “They don’t really care who the Democratic nominee is going to be. It’s going to be a Democrat and that’s enough for them.”
People are sitting on the sidelines waiting for their Democrat savior? Fat chance. Democrats sitting on the sidelines either won’t be voting or they may vote for Trump.
Nevertheless, the article goes on to offer another reason for the limited participation:
One reason for that, he says, is that the 2020 Democratic primary doesn’t have the same history-making feel to it. Twelve years ago, Democrats had a clear choice between nominating the first African American candidate or the first woman candidate. The size of the field could also have a dampening effect as Democrats struggle to decide which candidate to support. “The historic nature isn’t there,” McDonald says.
The historic nature is there. It’s the re-election of Donald J. Trump.
That re-election will change the Supreme Court in monumental ways, when Ginsberg finally bites the dust.
The re-election of President Trump will drain the swamp almost completely. Once the votes are counted on Nov 3, 2020, many Democrats will realize their fate. Americans will see perp walks of many former DOJ officials, along with many other Obama administration bureaucrats.
Rolling Stone knows the significance of the next election. And they know Republicans are well aware of the significance. Sadly for them and other Leftists, their warnings won’t matter.
