Barack Obama thought the coronavirus crisis would destroy Donald Trump.
He couldn’t have been more wrong.
Barack Obama never thought he’d hear these three words. They terrify him.
CNN recently found in their poll that among registered voters in swing states, Trump has a commanding lead over Biden.
That’s bad news for Democrats.
Joe Biden is a weak candidate who is dealing with a serious sexual scandal and a number of embarrassing mistakes.
And there’s even worse news for Democrats as they struggle to get minorities and the radical left behind Biden as the nominee.
Democrats were hoping for an economic collapse so that they would be able to attack Trump in terms of the economy.
Harvard professor Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration, thinks that there’s about to be the best “economic data” in America’s whole history.
“We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,” Furman said.
This is fantastic news.
Over 38 million people have become unemployed because of the coronavirus. If they don’t get back their jobs, there will be an economic crash that’s worse than the Great Depression which took a decade to recover from.
“Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever,” POLITICO reported. “Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic.”
The Democrats should have a better plan for winning back the presidency rather than relying on the American economy to collapse.
If they were running a candidate other than Biden, the Democrats might have better options.
The Trump administration has already managed to find numerous scandals that probably never would have got out if Hillary Clinton had won the election.
Hillary Clinton might have been able to hush up the fact that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign.
The Obama officials see economic recovery as their “big worry.”
The economy is probably going to improve before the election and “Trump beats Biden on the economy even right now!” one Democrat told POLITICO. “This is going to be extremely difficult no matter what.”
The real danger is the Democrats may put their own political agenda ahead of America’s and try to keep lockdowns in place even if they aren’t necessary.
“Dems are spooked because the economy is going to rebound quickly. Their strategy for November is to keep the country closed. Their interests are served by hurting as many Americans as possible,” political strategist Arthur Schwartz said.
There is also a real possibility of there being a vaccine for the novel coronavirus before autumn.
The Democrats know that their best chance to win the election is to keep America hurting as long as possible.
If this crisis is over by the time November is here, the Democrats don’t stand a chance.
