CNN is a mouthpiece for the Democrat party.
They are doing everything in their power to help them.
But they just admitted the one thing Democrats don’t want to be true.
CNN’s Election Coverage
CNN is working overtime to attack President Trump.
Many of their anchors are openly hostile towards the President.
And that hostility carries over to any candidate aligned with him.
One candidate facing a lot of scrutiny is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
As a Republican, he has solid approval in the Lone Star State.
Until this election cycle, no Democrat had made a serious challenge to him.
However, Rep. Beto O’Rourke is working overtime to take down Cruz.
His campaign has raised over $23 million and has a ton of support.
Democrats think he can win because a number of polls are showing Beto within striking distance.
But as it turns out, those polls don’t mean much.
These polls aren’t polling likely voters, they’re polling registered voters.
And CNN political analyst Harry Enten pointed that out on a recent show.
Talking about registered voters, he said, “we see actually that Cruz has only a 5-point lead among there.”
Enten continued, “[that] means the people who are actually going to show up are less likely to support O’Rourke than Cruz.”
So ultimately, Cruz has a much higher lead than Democrats are claiming.
Why Is This Important?
This is a big problem for Democrats for a lot of reasons.
The biggest reason is that O’Rourke’s race is using a lot of resources.
He has raised more money than any other Senate campaign in the country.
The amount he’s raised is what a Presidential campaign would normally raise.
Should O’Rourke lose, all those donations could have gone to support Democrats in more competitive races.
But winning the Senate may not have ever been O’Rourke’s goal.
There is speculation that he may be running for President in 2020.
In fact, the first poll for the election shows him with 4% of the vote.
That is significant for somebody who has made no indications of a 2020 run.
Not only that, but his Senate campaign is set up with the sophistication of a Presidential campaign.
He has an elite staff on his side, along with a national donor network.
So switching gears from a Senate campaign to a Presidential campaign won’t take much.
Could O’Rourke Beat Trump?
If O’Rourke were to get the Democratic nomination, many think he is a formidable opponent to Trump.
He is a personable and charismatic campaigner.
And he also floats more on the moderate side while still being able to appeal to Democrats farther left.
In many ways, this makes him similar to Barack Obama in his 2008 campaign.
That’s why many are calling him the next Obama.
