It seems to be coming down to this…
POTUS is betting on a roaring economy which he will tie to his policies of reduced immigration, better trade deals, America First, cutting regulation and tax cuts for people and corporations.
The Progressives are counting on voters ignoring economics and personal wealth and placing diversity and social justice as the driving factors.
It seems even the dimwitted GOP Senate has a glimmering of which one is the winning hand.
Trump has jobs and the flag, the Progs have the Media and Mueller.
If the Dems had a brain, they would accelerate the economy by joining in, such that by 2020 everyone feels well off and would assume the economy is fixed. Then they can turn to the important stuff like the first woman president, or first Hispanic president or the first gay woman Hispanic president.
