I think Sanders will be a ‘shoe in’ for the Dems by default as Joe Biden has seemingly lost what little mojo he had, but Trump is waiting and has his mojo back. I cannot see any of this disjointed rabble worrying Trump whatsoever.

Best wishes and good luck getting moderate Democrats to vote for a Socialist. Moderate Democrats may hate Donald Trump the man but they are making tons of money with Donald Trump the President.

The economy grew as fast or even faster under Obama.

In 2019 the adjusted growth rate was only 1.99%. This is less than Obama’s three last years in office and less than five of his last six years.

The recession began when the housing market collapsed due to the risky lending practices the Democrats (I believe Barney Frank was one of them) fought for. Obama used 700 billion dollars of taxpayer money in a stimulus package to create jobs. There were so many unemployed he had nowhere to go but up. The market has skyrocketed under Trump and anyone with investments can affirm the difference in gains between both Presidents. I have literally made more money in just the last three months of Trump than I did under 8 years of Obama. Every person with investments have watched their portfolios grow immensely. Every demographic is at its’ lowest unemployment level in 5 decades. When people can see real money and have real jobs I’m not sure they would vote to change that. Maybe, but I wouldn’t. Socialism does not work. Sanders will never be President.

So you think the chances are higher of them voting for the Republican candidate? Or what? It is party politics.

The majority of moderate Democrats will vote for Trump over Sanders and Warren. They may vote for Bloomberg or Buttigieg but not for the far left candidates. Moderate Democrats have watched their retirement investments make huge gains under Trump and they believe in Capitalism. They watch the economic numbers and gains and will not vote for candidates whose agenda will destroy those gains.

Oh, come on…You are GREATLY underestimating the power of party politics and even more importantly, Trump’s tremendous polarizing power. The man is like a lightning rod with his hatred towards the Dems. In this period, party cohesion is what matters.

You are greatly underestimating how much people like making and keeping their money. He doesn’t hate Democrats. He wants to sway them to his side. He hates the Democratic leaders who promised impeachment before he was even sworn in. Look at all he’s accomplished despite them challenging everything he does. When moderate Democrats step into that voting booth they will be thinking about how much their personal financial security has increased under Trump. They will consider the Socialist option and how those policies will affect their personal taxes and investments. Corporate taxes will rise under the Democrats, causing higher prices, lower discretionary spending, lower demand, higher unemployment and decreased wages. The Democrats will further harm the economy by strangling business with increased regulations. In the end, party politics will only mean something to someone willing to cut off their own nose to spite their face. I think most of us could work for a boss we hated if we had a safe place to work, a good salary and job security. Anybody who watched their investments do nothing under 8 years of Obama but have become financially secure under Trump will have a hard time voting against him.
