Donald Trump’s made many claims about the 2020 presidential election.
Now Democrats made an unbelievable concession.
Democrats just admitted this obvious truth about Trump and the 2020 election.
In the 2022 midterms Democrats are defending a historically narrow majority.
Republicans need to flip just five seats to oust Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
In preparation for the 2022 election, Democrats are looking back to the 2020 debacle where Republicans picked up a double-digit seat gain when all the so-called “experts” predicted Democrats would win 15 to 20 seats.
Some Democrats believe that making the 2022 election a referendum on Donald Trump will alienate the swing voters Republicans need to win to reclaim the majority.
But other Democrats look back at the 2020 election and warn that trying to put Trump front and center in 2022 is a recipe for disaster.
“With their fragile House majority on the line, many Democrats are imploring their colleagues not to take the Trump bait after last November’s referendum on the ex-president ended up costing their party a dozen seats. Instead, those Democrats are eager to deploy a policy-heavy playbook to help stave off a potential midterm whipping — and are careful to avoid putting Trumpism on the ballot next November, too,” POLITICO reported.
Democrats studying the results of the 2020 election came to the conclusion that raising the salience with voters of Donald Trump’s performance in office helped supercharge GOP turnout in key districts.
“Making the 2022 election a referendum on Trump has potential drawbacks: it could juice up the GOP base and provoke Trump himself, whom many Republicans see as a boon for their voter turnout and campaign coffers. The potency of the Trump turnout effect, in fact, was a key finding of a 2020 post-mortem report that DCCC delivered to its members this month, according to several lawmakers and aides briefed on the presentation,” POLITICO added.
In the 2020 election Republicans won all 27 of the races rated as the most competitive.
That expectations-defying performance by Republicans owed in large part to Donald Trump driving historic turnout.
Democrats and their allies in the corporate media underestimated the appeal of Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda of secure borders, supporting law enforcement and ending COVID lockdowns to usher life back to normal.
Some election forecasters look at Trump’s approval numbers and declared Trump an anchor around the neck of GOP candidates.
But House majorities are won and lost in the swing districts.
And in the key districts that determine which party controls the House of Representatives, Donald Trump is far more popular than his overall approval rating would suggest.
