Democrats Fear Trump May Be ‘Teflon Don’

According to Politico, President Trump may be Teflon.

Edward-Isaac Dovere reports that Democrats seeking to translate President Trump’s general levels of unpopularity into political gold are having a rough go of it. He writes:

Data from a range of focus groups and internal polls in swing states paint a difficult picture for the Democratic Party heading into the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election. It suggests that Democrats are naive if they believe Trump’s historically low approval numbers mean a landslide is coming.

What’s the big problem? Apparently, there are several. First off, Bernie Sanders economics isn’t convincing people. Dovere writes, “Many of the ideas party leaders have latched on to in an attempt to appeal to their lost voters — free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15, even Medicaid for all — test poorly among voters outside the base.”

Then there are the attacks on Trump himself. Trump is seen as a chaos agent, but attacks on Trump aren’t seen as solidifying — they’re seen instead as a contribution to the chaos. Furthermore, the constant levels of chaos around Trump actually reinforce the general notion that he’s a “change agent” rather than a dilettante.

      I think the latest democratic attempt to block deportation legislation for M – 15 gangs will be their “Waterloo”.

  • Dea Whyte-Mansburten

    Er…those “historically low” approval ratings are FAKE NEWS, but the same “scientitians” who polled Hillary leading BY DOUBLE DIGITS even in red states, right up to the night of the election.

    Trump is actually about 50/50, which is par for most Presidents.

    • I hope that Hillary beomes the Velcro queen.

  • Norman Fox

    The big problem is and I am delighted is that the President goes to the beat of a different drummer. He is and cannot be bought or sold. That is what jealously will get you nothing. AND he is cleaning out the sewer in Washington good for him I FOR ONE WANT AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED FOR AMERICA AND I AM NOT ABOUT TO LET THEIR LIVES BE FORGOTTEN BY A BUNCH OF SISSIES, WHO WANT TO BE A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY

    You INCREDIBLELY STUPID DEMS, TRUMP contrasts with YOU, then people SEE how basically AWFUL you and the MESS you helped CREATE in Washington D C really is. Days of reckoning are upon you creeps in DC, and that is RINO S too.

    Obama and his clown Democrats were Teflon, and for 8 yrs that bastard Half white and half black bastard fundamentally changed this country for the worse. Where should we begin? The gateway to the White House was directly to his pimp Al Sharpton along with his Black Lives Matter army continued to drive a wedge between blacks and Law enforcement leading to the assassination of our Police officer’s! Anarchy instilled by Obama, Soros, corruption in the IRS, AOJ Lynch of theJustice Department the CIA, and FBI. This black bastard had all his all his basis covered with his F—– Democratic Party. Obama should be tried for Treason! Hillary Clinton should be tried for treason and destruction of government Classified information along with her attorneys for deleting government Classified e-mail. That’s just starters. I refer to Obama as Black simply because American’s voted for the first black President who failed them and did nothing for the black people.

      He does not take all the blame it also belongs to the gelding Repubiucrates who first said we need the House and did nothing Then they needed the senate and did nothing then the presidency and are still doing nothing . Now they need a boot in their ass to get something done. Cant wait till 2018 when the Traitors are given a swift kick.

  • scorpian

    We as American’s must stand behind our great President Trump who’s giving his life and concern for all American’s. Republican’s and Democrats don’t want him to drain the swamp. He’s a landmark of Justice. Obama has a 30,000 strong obstructionists in the back ground working to destroy President Trump. We must encourage law enforcement to track down this coup of anarchists and destroy them. Obama belongs before a firing squad. Write the FBI AOJ Jeff Sessions and request he take down Obama and his followers.

  • donl

    The motto of the Democratic Party, – tell a lie long enough and everyone will believe it – NOT.

  • gardeauxandrew

    Obama got a pass from the medias and especially you whitey Americans to pacify certain people, which says a lot about incompetence. The lowering of standards to pacify hurts all, especially those it was intended to help! Beware the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES especially government propaganda LIES, it creates and promote snowflakes to riot that helps terrorist to destroy America from within!
