REPORT: DNC Panicking as Trump CRUSHES in Battlegrounds

August 29, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Despite polls suggesting Trump trailing top Democrat candidates, the DNC is in full panic mode. Top staffers at the organization are claiming that Trump is crushing them in key battleground states.

According to The Daily Beast:

After pledging to compete everywhere ahead of the next election, multiple DNC members told The Daily Beast they have privately sounded alarms about the organization’s strategy heading into 2020, emphasizing what they view as Chairman Tom Perez’s inability to reach swing voters in Midwestern battleground states who voted for the president. A handful of Midwestern targets were critical to Trump’s general election success in 2016.

Jim Zogby, who co-chairs the DNC’s ethnic counsel, a group that represents people across different ethnic, racial, national origin, and religious identities, says he has been pushing Perez and other party leaders to expand its outreach to voters in the same areas that Trump successfully captured: Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and—a Democratic sore spot in post-2016 politics—Wisconsin.

This outreach is failing:

“In Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, if we do events in those states that focuses on everyone else but them, that breeds resentment,” Zogby said. “That’s why [former Vice President Joe] Biden and [Sen.] Bernie [Sanders I-VT] do well, because they talk to those folks.”

Zogby’s chief concern—raised by several other current DNC members who spoke with The Daily Beast—is that the Trump campaign is already reaching swing voters while the Democratic Party is overwhelmingly focused on expanding their existing base.

The focus still seems to be on progressives while many within the DNC are screaming for outreach to get to general election independents. Identity politics seems to be backfiring.

    The Socialist Democrat party is on the wrong side of American dreams. Americans love individual freedom and liberty.

    After the disaster of Obama care proved to most A.ericans that Socialism in the USA will FAIL like it has everywhere else
    Trump tells the truth and Democrats and their controlled media LIE constantly.
