Democrats have a 2020 problem: Trump is good at elections

Willie Brown Feb. 9, 2019


Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

During the partial government shutdown over whether to fund Trump’s wall on the southern border, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that the president deliver the annual address alone, from the Oval Office.
I can see why.

Alone, Trump is a frump. In front of a crowd, he’s electric.

No matter what you think of Trump’s message, his delivery was impressive. He stayed on script and kept referring to everyday heroes in the gallery, thus forcing the Democrats to stand and cheer.

t was populist theater, where presence and impression trump content.
And the overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Nearly four years ago, when Trump announced his candidacy for president, I said he had a winning hand. He still does.
So we Democrats really have our work cut out for us.
If he carefully picks his fights, Trump can turn the light back on Democrats and force us to defend our progressive wing’s “socialist”

Imagine, if you can, any one of the declared dims trying to be Donald Trump.

Hell, I'm stocking up on popcorn and champagne early.   :laugh:
