Favorability: Who Is Winning?
By Pete Ketcham
As I observe the contest between Trump, Pelosi, Schumer, and the four “squad” members, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, I wonder who is winning the present favorability contest, and how it will play out when it comes to garnering votes in the 2020 elections.
It would seem to me that Trump should have stayed out of the fight between Pelosi and the “squad”, and let them do as much damage to each other as possible, and then at a later time he could have labeled the radical squad as the “face of the Democrat party”.
Most of the major conservative talk show hosts think Trump was using a brilliant strategy when he made his “leave the country” statements, but I don’t agree. I see the squad now portraying themselves as patriotic Americans who have become the “victims” of a racially crude president.
Pelosi has also labeled Trump a crude unfeeling racist, and has united herself with the squad, which in my opinion was the last thing the Republicans needed. In essence Trump was defending Pelosi in the Democratic family feud, and got jumped on by both sides
It seems that many prominent conservatives are underestimating the effectiveness and strategy of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her three comrades. They are well financed, have professional political strategists advising them, and all have had a meteoric rise to national prominence that is exceptional for freshman legislators.
Nevertheless, there is a good possibility that everything they are now doing could backfire on them if the swing voters and the general public realize how far radical left they have moved, this could prove to a significant assets for Trump in 2020,
But today the political scene is so convoluted that it is impossible to know who is winning. It is a day to day battle with no clear victory in sight for either side.
