Politico: Trump Primary Turnout Bad News for Dems

February 18, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Look out Democratic presidential hopefuls, President Donald Trump’s crowd sizes and primary voter turnout – in an uncontested GOP race – are a huge “warning sign,” Politico reported Sunday.

“Impeachment has lit a fire under the Trump base — and I anticipate it will burn until Election Day in November,” ex-Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., chairman of the pro-Trump Republican Jewish Coalition, told Politico. “Voter intensity is a key element in electoral success.”

Trump’s turnouts in Iowa and New Hampshire smashed his predecessors, including earning 129,696 votes in the New Hampshire primary, more than doubling the re-election years of former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, according to the report.

“There is a personal vote for Donald Trump that is unshakable,” pollster John Couvillon told Politico. “Republican voters are willing to go out.”

And, notably, this is without a true challenge in his primary, where only former Massachusetts GOP Gov. Bill Weld remains. Trump’s appealing to his conservative base is “George W. Bush strategy on steroids,” Democratic strategist Jeff Link told Politico.

“This is the problem that every party finds itself in when it’s running against an incumbent president,” former Bush aide Scott Jennings told Politico. “Trump is going to be difficult to beat, just like Obama was difficult to beat and just like Bush was difficult to beat.”

    I’ve been reading for quite sometime regarding all the “crap” going on in Washington. The words, “beat Trump” has been used almost as much as “racist/fascist etc” has been used in the media. The only beating that’s been going on is the Dem party failing to find something to stand behind other than “beat Trump”! Free stuff might appeal to some……low life’s who will never attain adulthood. Trump has changed the direction of this country that will last for decades (if not permanently)that guarantees our right of the pursuit of happiness. What our founding fathers visualized at the beginning of this great country. The cancer of socialism is dying in the US! What a great time to be an American and love our country!!

      I am so happy to be an American. No one is happier than I for what President Trump did for us. In spite of his flaws, he’s kept his word. God is with him, that’s why he succeeds. If God is with you, No one can stand against you.
      Mr. President Focus on your job only; Reduce the Deficit as one of your priorities; Give Americans the best health care. Thank you.
