Trump’s approval rating has never been in the “good range.” However, the only thing that is important, is where will it be on November 3, 2020? A Presidential historian has this opinion.
Douglas Brinkley commented on the current impeachment hearings and the effect they will have on Trump’s future.
“It just tells you what deep trouble Donald Trump is in. I mean, when you have 50 percent of the country wanting you not just impeached but removed from office, and the game hasn’t even gotten fast yet,” Brinkley said Friday morning on CNN, where he serves as a contributor.
“I think once the vote is taken by Congress to impeach him and he’s wearing the ‘I’ on his chest, you’re going to see that movement grow even more,” Brinkley predicted.
He added of Trump, “It tells you he doesn’t have a lot of friends. He’s a base politician. He doesn’t know how to turn this around.”
For me, this confirms what I have said since early 2017. If Trump did not have the assistance of Russia, the mainstream media, and James Comey, he would not have won the Electoral College in 2016. Trump was and remains the worst candidate in American history. He fails to have a single qualification to be our nation’s president, and he lacks any form of morality or patriotism to our nation. He fails to keep his oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”
Polls vary, and their accuracy does not always forecast the results of an election. However, today, Trump has the support of his base and no one else. Voters who identify themselves as Democrats reject Trump by more than 90 percent. Independents, who compose the majority of the voting demographic, oppose Trump by more than 60 percent.
Once again Trump is guaranteed to lose the popular vote in 2020. The question is; does he have a chance to win the Electoral College?
Possibly one fact may confirm his defeat in what I believe is the unconstitutional decider in our presidential elections; the people should elect the president. Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania; the three states who put Trump over the 270 needed to win the presidency; are now pro-Democrat.
“I think the Democrats might want to look at the way Jimmy Carter pulled off victory in 1976. He took the high road. He ran on saying, I will never tell a lie to you,” Brinkley said. “He didn’t have to say Nixon’s lies or Lyndon Johnson’s lies, just that I am clean, good governance coming your way if you vote for me.”
I continue to believe that the American people love their country and will never accept a Russian agent to remain in the White House.
Please vote in 2020. Save your country for yourself and those you love. All Republicans must be removed from Washington.
