President Trump Will Claim the Middle Ground for Normal Americans

President Trump’s support base has been called far right by every mainstream media outlet (except Fox News), but that isn’t an necessarily an accurate representation of them. Despite the images the Trump hating media shows of his raucous MAGA rallies, many supporters label themselves as moderates.

This should be troubling for the DNC. In fact, Democrats should be panicking because Trump has managed to nudge them farther to the left—which stats show has furthered the gap between them and swing voters.

Publicity hungry congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her “squad” were easy targets for Trump’s Twitter trolling. The President pointed out that they didn’t seem to like their country very much, and the Democrats unified for that brief moment to pull the racist card on the President.

As the saying goes, Trump is rubber and Democrats are glue. The glue part is that only days before, the “squad” was complaining that Nancy Pelosi was picking on them as “women of color.” Also, during the last Democrat candidate debate, Kamala Harris called out Joe Biden for his close association with segregationist colleagues before the days of political correctness.

However, in the latter two cases, Democrats always issue a “get out of jail free” card to their own. They preface any attacks with the condescending caveat, “I don’t believe you are a racist, but…”

But President Trump is no racist. The Democrats know it, and so do voters. Democrats need to abandon that divisive charge and start acting like adults again. Unfortunately, just like the only really centrist candidate, “Creepy Joe” Biden, their mouths won’t let them.

Consider these classic verbal gaffes when Biden in the past. Joe Biden remarked that Obama was “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Another true story: Biden actually said, “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

Speaking of jokes, there is that avuncular way-past-adult-aged Democrat candidate Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders could have been the Democrat nominee in 2016, if not for what his own party did to him.

In any event, it could be Bernie’s turn this time around. But history is not on his side. Consider the following performance of past liberal left candidates:

In 1972 Richard Nixon ran against a raging liberal, George McGovern, who because he was so far ahead of his time could be considered the patron saint of looney liberals. Does anyone remember McGovern’s “Come Home America” speech? His message was basically anti-military and soak the rich to pay for social programs that should be given one more chance.

Final score in electoral votes: Nixon 520, McGovern 17.

Then there was the 1984 election when the world’s most boring Democrat, Walter Mondale, was sent to the sacrificial political altar against the country’s most popular president, Ronald Reagan. Walter Mondale was a liberal of the more likeable, squishy sort, had the principal handicap of serving as Vice President to one of America’s bottom 50-percenters, Jimmy Carter.

Final score in electoral votes: Reagan 525, Mondale 13.

President Trump would do well to take on a socialist in an era where high employment and prosperity will not resonate with a prosperous electorate. It might be very entertaining to watch Donald Trump, a successful capitalist and entrepreneur, do a number on Senator Sanders during MAGA rallies and debates.

Bernie Sanders may be, as touted by CNN, “the most successful progressive politician of our generation,” but his message of tax and spend, soak the rich, and give free stuff to people who don’t work will be piggy-backed on Trump’s tweets so everyone will know Bernie’s true colors.

Bernie’s colors, although mostly pink, have the taint of hypocrisy. Bernie and spouse are millionaires and own three homes. He is the classic limousine liberal, and Donald Trump rides around in an armored version that could leave tire tracks on Bernie’s campaign.

Bernie could probably win his home state’s three electoral votes along with the blue state usual suspects. But he’ll have to find a way to bring the American working people back to the Democratic fold. Also, he is “beyond white” and has yet to resonate with black voters.
