Democrats’ plans for a landslide in 2020 just got put on hold.
The professional leftists handling Joe Biden planned to use his victory to remake America into a socialist nation.
But Chuck Schumer shook his head at a new poll that is bad news for his 2020 plans.
Democrats don’t just want to win the White House; they want to seize control of the Senate so they can create permanent one-party rule over America.
If Democrats run the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, they will eliminate the legislative filibuster, pack the Supreme Court with up to six new liberal justices, grant statehood to Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico and gift themselves four new permanent Senate seats as well as create tens of millions of new Democrat voters through a mass amnesty.
To accomplish this takeover of America, Schumer and the Democrats need to net at least three Senate seats.
Democrats believe they have strong chances to pick up seats in Arizona, Maine and Colorado.
But Democrat Doug Jones is expected to lose in Alabama.
That leaves Schumer in search of one more seat.
Schumer and his allies thought Iowa might be a place to find that fourth pickup.
However, a brand-new Monmouth University poll showed that may be a tall task.
Monmouth found Trump leading Biden by three in Iowa and even leading by two in a turnout model where more voters cast ballots than in 2016.
“The race remains tight when different likely voter models are applied. A model based on a higher level of turnout than 2016 puts the race at 48% Trump and 46% Biden while one reflecting lower turnout produces a similar 47% Trump and 47% Biden result. Republicans (36%) are somewhat more likely than Democrats (28%) to feel very optimistic about the 2020 presidential election, but a larger number of Democrats (46%) than Republicans (34%) say they are more enthusiastic about voting this year compared to past elections,” Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray wrote in a release accompanying the results.
Trump won Iowa going away in 2016.
Monmouth’s poll showing Iowa voters sticking with Trump in 2020 trickled down to the Senate race between Iowa Republican Joni Ernst and Democrat Theresa Greenfield, where Ernst leads Greenfield 48 to 47.
“In the election for U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent Joni Ernst (48%) and Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield (45%) are locked in a tight battle. Libertarian Rick Stewart earns 2%, independent Suzanne Herzog has 1%, and another 3% are undecided. The race remains knotted up when looking at likely voters as well, using either a high turnout (48% Ernst and 47% Greenfield) or low turnout (48% Ernst and 47% Greenfield) scenario,” Murray added.
Very few voters split their ticket these days.
If Donald Trump wins Iowa, the strong likelihood is that Joni Ernst will win re-election and the Democrats’ path to a Senate majority will narrow considerably.
