The list of potential Trump challengers keeps growing.
There’s no telling who will lead the pack.
But Trump’s most dangerous potential challenger may have just emerged.
Is Trump’s Most Dangerous Challenger The Next Obama?
Obama came out of nowhere before running for President.
As a Senator, he was relatively unknown.
But as soon as he jumped into the arena, he set himself apart and his grassroots army of support was unheard of.
Being the first and most effective user of online media, Obama made a name for himself.
And Democrats haven’t been able to find anybody like him since.
He was someone who appealed to both the establishment and progressive wings of the party.
The two major Democrat challengers in the 2016 election failed to do that.
Hillary Clinton is as establishment as you can get, and Bernie Sanders is a self-described socialist.
Neither carries mass appeal like Obama.
But one candidate being thrown around does.
The Next Obama Could Be A Texan
Beto O’Rourke is Ted Cruz’s challenger in Texas.
While Democrats believe he has winning potential, it is extremely unlikely.
But that may not be his actual goal in this race.
Beto O’Rourke was an unknown Congressman until announcing his run.
But now he has support from Democrats nationwide.
He is outperforming more than anybody believed a Democrat could accomplish in Texas.
Despite what some liberal pundits are saying, it almost certainly won’t translate to a win.
But his campaign is very similar to Obama’s campaign in 2008.
Obama’s Grassroots Army
Obama’s biggest asset was his supporters.
Using community organizing tactics, he created local leaders who ran much of his campaign on the ground.
His supporters were everywhere.
And like Obama, O’Rourke is taking advantage of this.
He is visiting every county in Texas, even those that are solid red.
His main goal is to create local leaders who can do much of his work.
And those he recruits will help him with things such as fundraising.
The majority of his donors are small donors and many of them live out of state.
And this money isn’t going to television ads or consultants like most politicians.
It is going to online ads and merch gear for supporters.
This is similar to Obama, who revolutionized the way campaigns now use online ads.
Just Like Obama’s Campaign In Iowa
Obama first made it clear he was going to win at 2008’s Iowa caucus.
Because of his community-organizing tactics, he beat everybody.
That’s because caucuses are preferable to grassroots candidates.
It comes down to who can organize better.
It’s not the same as getting people to the polls.
Caucuses involve organizing at the local level.
Those close to Obama in 2008 feel that O’Rourke’s campaign mirrors Iowa in 2008.
This makes it clear that O’Rourke is a serious challenger in 2020.
His race is likely nothing more than a way to grow his name.
It is also creating a donor base for 2020.
So the real question is that if he wins over the Democrats, will he be able to beat Trump?
Do you think Beto O’Rourke could beat President Trump?
