The Democrats are struggling in the 2020 presidential campaign. Senator, Bernie Sanders is leading the pack of Democratic candidates, but he is not really a Democrat, so the campaign is really confusing. Senator Sanders is an independent, and a socialist, and with the label of socialist, he will probably lose to President Trump. Sanders is also a progressive, and an advocate of Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and much higher taxes on upper incomes.
“The discourse surrounding Bernie Sanders’s campaign has a familiar ring, ‘Stop Sanders’ Democrats Are Agonizing Over His Momentum”, reads a headline in The New York Times this week. As the Democrats are fighting with their own crisis, the Republicans are now the Party of Trump.
President Trump’s support comes from the majority of small donations from under $200. Many Americans hate Trump, but 50% of American love him, and they will vote for him another term. Trump has learned how to create bait, and it attracts a crowd, and his rallies are usually 15,000 to 20,000 strong. At Trump’s rallies, he is also attracting Democrats, because he uses bait and data to study their habits.
“Quickly after his rally Tuesday in New Hampshire, his media team announced that they received over 50,000 new pieces of data (leads) and 24% of them were from registered Democrats. They were focused like a laser on that number because they only lost the state by 2,000 votes in 2016. Their data also shows if you go to a rally there is an 80% chance of you voting on Election Day,” says Darin Spindler - of Magnetic Marketing.
If the Democrats are going to win in 2020, they must study and watch what Trump’s team is doing in their campaign. The Republicans are not fighting amongst themselves, they are organizing and collaborating.
“The data is also showing if you go to a rally and you donate a dollar ($1) – there is a 90% chance you will vote on Election Day. Just think, a $1 commitment increases the likelihood of you voting by 10%,” says Darin Spindler. Trump’s rallies are very important to his campaign and he is expanding his voter base.
“President Trump’s reelection campaign raked in $46 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 in support of the president’s bid for a second term, the Trump campaign announced last month,” says Melissa Quinn –of CBS News. “The Trump campaign raised $143 million total in 2019 and the year with $102.7 million in cash-on-hand. The $46 million brought in for the last three months of the year represented donations made only to the campaign and does not include money raised by the Republican National Committee or other joint fundraising committees, said the campaigns,” says Melissa Quinn.
The Democrats have their work cut out for this election, because the billionaires in the Republican Party are just starting to make their donation. As Michael Bloomberg begins to move up on the list of Democratic candidates many Democrats are happy, because he is worth $60 billion dollars. In 2020, it seems that this presidential election will be centered on the billionaires. This is unprecedented, but elections have always been about who has the most money. When a candidate can spend 2 or 3 billion dollars on a campaign the leadership does not know what to say. The Republicans will raise billions of dollars in the 2020 election. If the Democrats are going to challenge the Republicans, they must also raise billions of dollars to compete.

As President Donald Trump is impeached in the House, and gets off in the Senate, the system is broken. There is no explanation on how the president can use the power of his office to break the law, while his party accepts and supports his lies. It is very difficult to determine which party is telling the truth, when Trump is not removed from office.
This is a strange time in America, when the president is incompetent, dismisses and ignores diplomats and intelligence reports, because he is too lazy to read. The Democrats and the Republicans understood that the President from the very beginning was unfit for the job. It seems as though the majority of Americans are not smart, or educated when it comes to politics.
Respect is something that is earned, and it is never given. From the very beginning of President Trump’s campaign, he was disrespectful to everyone, and operated as a criminal god-father. The leaders in his campaign operated as shady characters, and six associates were convicted for breaking the law. The Republicans and the Democrats act as if this never happened, and our President thinks these criminals were good choices.
“Since taking office Washington Post fact checkers have tallied roughly 6,500 false claims by Trump. He learned exactly the wrong lesson from winning the election. He became even more convinced that his approach had been right,” says Chris Megerian – LA Times.
As a businessman, Donald Trump was long known for grandiose exaggerations, often false statements about the height of his buildings and the size of his wealth. Many of his businesses were fraudulent, and no one knows the correct number of times he has filed bankruptcy.
This is the way President Trump has managed his life, with an assortment of criminals, gangsters, prostitutes, and international celebrities as his friends. His father was worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and there were very few things that he was not able to buy.
Many will argue that Trump bought the position of the President of the United States, and others will argue that Trump is a political genius, but in November 2016, he became the most powerful man on the planet. Some will say he tricked people into voting for him, others will say he used an effective form of promotion, and his strategy worked.
Nevertheless, President Trump has been the leader of the free world for three years, and he wants only loyalists who will do what he says, and donate millions of dollars to his presidential campaign and businesses.
Many of his appointees, ambassadors and secretaries are untrained and incompetent, and many of the prestigious post are up for sale. Law professor Barbara McQuade says, “The conduct described in the Mueller report constitutes multiple crimes of obstruction of justice. It’s supported by evidence of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”
With this information, it would appear that President Trump would be removed from office, but the Republican Party is 95% supportive of the president. They agree with everything he says or does, and no one challenges his authority and policies. There is something dangerous with this lack of independent thought, and there is a constitutional crisis in the country.
A new Fox poll this Sunday contradicted President Trump, who boasted major support in favor of “No Impeachment.” “But a fresh Fox News poll conducted last week and released Sunday found that a majority of the American electorate wants Trump impeached. Fifty percent are in favor of impeaching and removing, and 41 percent oppose impeachment all together,” says Fox News. America is at a crossroads, and the majority of the Republicans are conservative and White. It is time for integrity and intelligence to lead Americans on a moral path back to sanity. Lies must be exposed and President Trump must be impeached and removed from office.
