Uh Oh

Read an editorial entitled "Why 2020 will be the worst year of Trump's life" in the LA Times today, written by an Editor at the Nation.

He said it was important to look beyond national polls, and focus on the swing states. He went onto say that in the following states that Trump won in 2016 which include Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, his ratings that were positive have fallen "disastrously"
"In Pennsylvania they decreased by 17 points, in Wisconsin by 20 points, in Michigan by 22 points."

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, and Trump remains a strong campaigner, but he'll be digging out of a very deep hole in these three states that carried him to victory in 2016.

He was also spinning a pretty good yarn with lots of promises about tax breaks for the middle class and bringing back lost manufacturing jobs. However, he now has an actual record as the top guy, and people seem to be getting sick of the style. His rating in PA is a -7 and worse in Michigan.

Just sayin' its not going to be the same in 2020-people were impressed by the TV show persona and now he has a record he will have to run on.

You're right, quick6, a lot of people are sick of the tv show. Myself included. Doesn't mean that we have switch over to never Trumper's though. Given the choice of a tv show for another 4 years, or a socialist, I will tune in and vote to keep on keeping on with the Trumpster. I suspect I am not alone. I also suspect that the polls are unreliable, just as they were in '16. We'll just have to let it play out.

Indeed. The poll if you are interested is Morning Consult. You won't have to vote for a socialist- don't think anyways as hopefully a moderate wins out.
Long ways to go, I agree and many things could change.

But the polls were right. Trump just won in some key areas.

PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP HAS DELIVERED RECORD BREAKING RESULTS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN HIS FIRST THREE YEARS IN OFFICE

“We are making America stronger, prouder, and greater than ever before.” – President Donald J. Trump

PROMOTING ECONOMIC PROSPERITY FOR ALL: President Trump’s pro-growth policies have led to an economic boom that is lifting up Americans of all backgrounds.

Since President Trump’s election, more than 7 million jobs have been added to the economy.

For the first time on record, there are more job openings than unemployed Americans.
o
There are more than 7 million job openings, outnumbering job seekers by more than 1 million.
o
Nearly two-thirds of Americans rate now as a good time to find a quality job, empowering more Americans with rewarding careers.

This year, the unemployment rate reached its lowest level in half a century.
o
The unemployment rate has remained at or below 4 percent for the past 21 months.
o
The unemployment rate for women reached its lowest rate in 65 years under President Trump.

The booming economy is putting more money in Americans’ pockets.

November 2019 marked the 16th consecutive month that wages rose at an annual rate of at or over 3 percent.

Wages are rising fastest for low-income workers.

Middle-class and low-income workers are enjoying faster wage growth than high-earners.

Hit

High marks for the Trump economy

Economic growth has averaged 2.6 percent, better than in the Bush and Obama years.
