If Democrats lose in 2020, their party may never recover.
That’s why they are going all in.
And now they are in full-on panic mode after a poll proved the unthinkable.
The odds are stacked against the Democrats in the 2020 election.
Currently, the economy is booming with historic lows in unemployment.
And there is no sign of things slowing down before November of 2020, when their party’s nominee will take on President Trump.
The only thing they can dream of is that they can pick a nominee more popular than Trump is, which will be difficult.
Not only that, but the latest polling shows that none of the front-runner candidates have a shot at accomplishing that.
Analysis of polling from FiveThirtyEight shows that the favorable-unfavorable ratings of the three top Democrat candidates are unprecedentedly negative.
The three candidates they analyze are former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
They are the three most consistently polled as the front-runners in the race.
Biden is seen as more unfavorable, polling 44.3% unfavorable to 43.4% favorable, giving him a net approval of -0.8.
Things are even worse for Warren and Sanders.
Warren polls at 39.8% favorable to 40.2% unfavorable, with a net approval of -0.4.
Sanders, who describes himself as a socialist, is 43.6% favorable to 45.2% unfavorable, putting him at a -1.6-net approval.
This is remarkably low when comparing to recent elections.
The only well-known candidates since 2000 to have lower approval before the election were Hillary Clinton (-9), Jeb Bush (-20), Donald Trump (-26) in 2016, and Newt Gingrich (-15) in 2012.
In 2012, Trump’s low approval could likely be attributed to unfair polls.
Prior to the election, polls showed him with virtually no chance of victory.
So it isn’t surprising that those same pollsters would show him with such a low approval rating.
In contrast, George W. Bush was up 33 points prior to the 2000 election, with Barack Obama up 20 points in 2008.
Even candidates who didn’t go on to win had high approval, with John McCain up 15, John Edwards up 13, and Rudy Giuliani up 12 before the 2008 election.
Not only that, but Hillary Clinton was up 2 points before the 2008 election, along with Mitt Romney having around the same approval in 2012.
Polling is becoming less and less reliable as time goes on, but this is still remarkably bad for Democrats and is good reason to panic.
That’s why candidates like Michael Bloomberg are popping up, pledging to spend unheard of amounts of money to take on Trump.
They will have their work cut out for them considering how much Trump is climbing in his approval rating.
He is holding an approval rating above 50% when it comes to his handling of the economy.
And recent polling even shows that 34% of black voters support him, which is unprecedented for Republicans in the modern era.
Trump is bringing people together, while Democrats are trying to tear down all the wins Trump has been able to bring in since taking office.
