Opinion Of Elder Patriot – By every statistical measure, Democrats’ Marxist policy proposals are losing credibility in the wake of Obama’s failed presidency and President Trump’s incredibly successful first two-and-a-half years in office.
President Trump’s policies have yielded remarkable results with women and minorities the primary beneficiaries of the nation’s 3.1% economic growth.
More than half of the new jobs have gone to women. And, fully half of all new jobs have gone to Blacks and Hispanics. Both groups are experiencing record low levels of unemployment.
Hispanic homeownership is growing faster than that of any other demographic group. Wages among the lowest economic demographic is growing at 3.2%, faster than any other income group.
“On every leading economic issue, in the leading economic issues Black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories”.
Those groups – women, blacks, and Hispanics – were the three key demographics underpinning the Democrat Party.
Many are waking up to the reality that liberalism has failed them and electorally significant numbers are abandoning the Democrat Party in numbers that can’t be ignored.
This leaves Democrat leadership with two electoral strategies for 2020; One is to double down on the party’s past policies of free stuff. They’re now offering free everything.
Blacks and Hispanics already know how all that free stuff worked out for them in the past.
Their other strategy is to convince voters that President Trump is the most vile human being to ever walk the earth so that they’d willingly elect anyone but Trump.
Democrats are invoking every conceivable form of political correctness/identity politics with the hope that it becomes Trump’s Kryptonite. In August 2015, Trump told Megyn Kelly that he would not be deterred by charges that he was politically incorrect:
DJT: “The big problem this country has is being politically correct. I've been challenged by so many people and I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either. This country is in big trouble.”
Trump immediately climbed to the top of the polls, bolstered by Americans who been cowed into silence by the PC police.
That brings us to today, with one difference – Trump now has more than two years of undeniable results to accompany his no nonsense political manner. And, Democrats can no longer deny he knows what he’s doing or that he’s intent on harming minorities.
All of Trump’s successes explains the lack of decorum and insanity that took place on the floor of the House yesterday. Democrats were experiencing a mass melt down. Georgia Rep. Doug Collins joined Fox and Friends to explain the clown show:
The histrionics resulted in another epic failure.
A new Economist and YouGov poll found that 42% have a somewhat or very favorable view of ICE. That’s a higher favorability rating than Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, combined.
Also of note, Trump’s approval is up four points and has passed 50% since the recent Twitter squabble.
On Wednesday, Rasmussen released a poll that found 32% of “Democrats think it’s racism any time a white politician criticizes a politician of color.”
It’s up to you to decide if Trump is shedding the PC handcuffs and Americans will soon be rid of identity politics or you prefer your opinions being discounted because of the color of your skin.
