With the 2020 Presidential election still a year away, an awful lot of things can happen. However, if things remain about the same as today, there are quite a number of things that should scare any Democrat Presidential candidate when facing President Donald Trump. Here, I highlight five particular polls that should serve as a warning to Democrats not to continue down the road of rampant Marxism.
Poll #1: support for the President sits at 53%, according to Rasmussen. On September 24th, 2019, Rasmussen Reports shared their daily presidential tracking poll and found that 53% of likely U.S. voters approve of the job Donald Trump is doing as President of the United States. This includes 37% who strongly approve of his job as POTUS.
This is important to note because, while Rasmussen tends to show high numbers for Trump (not always, though), this is a sign of a very popular President in office. Rasmussen, back in September 16, found his approval numbers at 50% (so it fluctuates a lot, given the day) and is polling better than Obama did at the same time in his own presidency. Back in September 16, 2011, Barack Obama was polling at 46% approval, compared to Trump’s 50% at the same date 8 years later and even compared to now. Rasmussen also tends to be one of the most reliable polling firms and is one that accurately predicted the 2016 presidential election results.
As it currently stands, Trump is considerably more popular of a President than Barack Obama was at the same point in time in his own term. Tell that to Leftists and they’re likely to not believe you, but it seems to be the truth. And it seems like a massive detriment to Democrats for 2020, if he can keep up these types of numbers (again, they do fluctuate). It is extremely difficult to defeat a popular President.
Poll #2: Americans strongly believe and defend our rights to gun ownership. Rasmussen found that 75% of American adults believe the United States Constitution “guarantees the right of an average citizen to own a gun. Just 15% disagree. Ten percent (10%) are not sure. These findings are virtually unchanged in surveying since Rasmussen Reports first asked this question 10 years ago.”
This is very important to know because of the kind of policies some people on the Left have been openly espousing as of late. While many Democrats are trying to push back against Beto O’Rourke’s desire to forcibly disarm the American people, the furry idiot continues to double and triple-down on this policy. After having “restarted” his campaign for the third or fourth time, Beto decided to have his campaign focus on a Soviet-style disarmament of the American populace via a “mandatory gun buyback” program that is nothing more than a complete and total disarmament of the people. With him continuing to assert a “need” to disarm Americans, he reflects on the rest of the Democrat Party, who at least inwardly share the same views.
Over the past few decades, the Democrats have been looking for ways to slowly but surely make it harder and harder for people to get a gun and looking for ways to get rid of people’s guns. Proposed “red flag laws” (which have been foolishly, but unsurprisingly bipartisan) are one example of such a desire to get rid of people’s ability to own guns (and using a system that does not help in the slightest and only further endangers people, thereby working against the supposed purposes of the laws).
And while Beto is nowhere close to being the nominee, his proposal, while being pushed back by people like Chuck Schumer and other Democrats, is something every Democrat would be willing to try out, even if they don’t publicly announce their support for it.
But with 75% of Americans defending our constitutional right to bear arms, policies like the one Beto is espousing are not something other Democrats will want to attach themselves to. These people are deadliest when you don’t know their true intentions.
Poll #3: consumer confidence is near a five-year high. Rasmussen Reports found in their Economic Index that consumer spending sits at 140.8, which is virtually unchanged from August and is among 2019’s highest. According to Rasmussen, “Enthusiasm about the economy started to grow immediately following Donald Trump’s election as president in November 2016 and spiked to 145.9 in February 2018.” Comparing Trump to Obama once again, Obama’s highest index number in the final years of his presidency was at 121.5 in January of 2015 and hovered around 108.1 his last month in the White House.
This is also very important to note because it is a strong indication of just how wrong the Leftist media is about a “looming recession.” When consumer confidence is high, there is not much reason to fear a recession at all. People are comfortable spending their money (largely because of great unemployment rates and wage hikes) and that is always good news for any economy.
This is also likely a good reason for Trump’s high approval numbers. It’s hard to disapprove of someone’s job when the economy is this good. Even if people have personal issues with Trump, the economy is on Trump’s side, which is why the Democrats avoid talking about it like the plague, unless the market has a bad day. The phrase “It’s the economy, stupid” is very much a true statement.
Poll #4: fewest number of people support single-payer healthcare in five years. According to Rasmussen, 36% of likely U.S. voters favor a single-payer healthcare system where the government provides health coverage to everyone in the country. 47% are opposed with 17% undecided. “This is the highest level of opposition in nearly five years. A year ago, voters were evenly divided, with 43% in favor of a single-payer system and 43% opposed.”
This likely has to do with the next poll.
Poll #5: people dislike Medicare for All once they learn they have to pay higher taxes and there will be longer wait times for operations. Among Democrat voters, 70% support the socialized healthcare program supported by Warren and Sanders, with only 21% opposing. This is according to a polling firm working for the Biden campaign. However, when told that universal healthcare would cost taxpayers $3.2 trillion a year, 51% of people said they found that to be a good reason to oppose the proposal. Similarly, 53% said longer waiting periods for operations were a good reason to oppose the program.
While the general trend has been seemingly a downward one for support for single-payer healthcare over the past couple of years, I firmly believe one of the biggest blunders Bernie Sanders committed was giving away the secret that middle-class families and income-earners will see a raise in taxes as a result of implementing Medicare for All. Knowing very well that taxing the ultra-wealthy into oblivion will not get him anywhere close to the amount of money needed to afford the program, he knew that middle-income people would have to pay up. He just made the mistake of admitting it to the people during a debate.
It looks like people are beginning to wake up to the idea that “free healthcare” is not actually free.
So with all of these polls, I really do not see much reason for Trump not to be able to beat these lunatics. Joe Biden might position himself as a moderate, but he’s no less radical than the other people he is currently sharing a stage with. And the other two candidates who are actually in this race to the nomination espouse extremely radical, fringe ideologies that as we can see are not particularly popular with most people.
Again, a lot can change in the span of a single year. We still don’t even know for certain who will be the Democrat nominee (despite Biden having been considered the clear frontrunner and most likely nominee back when the campaign first began). But to reiterate my previous point: as long as these numbers are similar in a year, if not better, then Trump really should be able to win reelection.
