Matt Lewis: Trump’s ‘hostile takeover’ of the Republican Party is going to lead to a 2020 election wipeout

Mod: Conservative Matt Lewis is a former Republican political writer who has some down-home truth for his ex-party. Apparently now you have to leave the GOP before you can tell the truth.

Trump’s ‘hostile takeover’ of the Republican Party is going to lead to a 2020 election wipeout (Raw Story link): In a column for the Daily Beast, former Republican — but still conservative — Matt Lewis took a look at the most recent presidential and Senate election polling and predicted that Donald Trump is leading the GOP to a November wipeout that will see them lose the Senate and the White House.

With a Fox News poll coming out this week showing the president trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden badly, Lewis said things likely won’t get better for Trump and that could lead to the collapse of the entire party.

Posing the question, “A Democratic wave is slowly gaining energy. Could a Republican wipe-out ensue?” Lewis added, “Consider this: Donald Trump is getting trounced by 11 points in the recent Quinnipiac poll. That one may be an outlier, but Biden is also up by 8 in the latest Fox News poll. More importantly, he continues to expand the electoral map, consistently besting Trump in Arizona, a state that wasn’t considered vital to his path to victory. He’s also winning in Florida and (albeit narrowly) Georgia (!).”

Acknowledging it is still early, Lewis said Republicans should be very concerned about what the future holds not only for the November election but beyond.

“The U.S. Senate map is experiencing a similar blue-ish expansion. Democrats need three seats to take control (four, if you assume that Democrat Doug Jones will lose in Alabama), a hurdle that looks increasingly doable,” he wrote. ” Should this trend continue, Republicans will have, in four short years, gone from controlling all the levers of power to losing them all. Did I mention that Democrats will retain the House of Representatives, which Republicans lost in year two of Trump’s presidency?”

“Even before Trump completed his hostile takeover of the GOP, the future looked tenuous for a party that had grown increasingly reliant on old, white, married, rural, and non-college-educated voters, even as demographic trends seem to be shifting in an opposite direction,” the Daily Beast columnist explained.

“Some speculated that Trump’s 2016 victory might constitute one last, desperate, gasp for this demographic coalition. If that were the case, the trade-off might be worth it—especially if it bought time for the GOP to adapt.”

“He [Trump] didn’t just burn the village, he sowed salt in the ground, too. He emasculated and destroyed the reputations of a rising generation of Republican leaders, who, depending on their story, will now be viewed as weaklings, co-conspirators, appeasers, racists, phonies, losers, or apostates,” he added, before suggesting, “Let’s assume 2020 is a total wipeout for Republicans. Do these Republicans kick Trump to the curb and adapt to reality?”

Mod: Much more at the link.

  2. One thing im noticing among my friends and neighbors is the fear, if you will, of thinking that somehow Trump will squeak out a win in November, even though not one I know, wants him to win. THey seem to think his bots, Russia, mail in ballot issues, etc. will somehow all get tweaked in a way for him to win. I dont agree and suggest the opposite. I say that many people were on the fence in 2016, that they thought Trump the businessman might be an interesting choice to Shake Things Up a bit, and they didnt really know Trump. Many were on the fence and tilted his way. I say MANY of those people now feel like they know Trump way too well, and would NOT vote for him. And, anyone that did not vote for him in 2016 would definitely NOT vote for him now, knowing what we now know. I honestly think more people are so weary, frustrated, done with, his BS that he doesnt stand a chance, popular vote or Electoral College. He base is small but loud, and they shall hopefully fade back into the shadows and gutters from whence they came, we cant seem to stop the idiots from procreating but at least they wont be what others see as the voice of our country. I for one, have hope, now that November is getting closer.

  4. Not sure how over the past 40 years people actually thought there were signs of intelligence in the GOP. They hitched their racist wagon to a wannabe Hitler of America and then wonder why they’ll be politically slaughtered in November.

  5. The Senate had a chance to save this country and the Republican Party and they chose to save Trump instead. Trump values and saves no one but himself. Putin must have some great dirt on Moscow Mitch and the other Republican clowns.

  9. One hopes the writers are correct. It’ll take decades to repair/rebuild what Donald Trump and Covid19 have done to this country. Hopefully we can institute systemic change....better/universal health care, living wages, vote by mail in 50 states, income inequality, climate change.

  11. New Fox News poll finds Biden with healthy lead, sends Trump into tailspin
    The president is mad that Fox News isn’t rigging polls for him.

    On Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump said the quiet part loud in a tweet where he attacked Fox News for “doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd.” Hours later, the network gave him a new thing to get angry about.

    Fox’s latest poll finds Trump trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by a robust 8 points nationwide. It’s enough to put Biden ahead even considering the 3-point margin of error, and a significant swing from last month, when Fox’s polling had the race tied.

    Trump’s eroding standing versus Biden in the poll of 1,207 registered voters conducted May 17 to 20 correlates with a decline in approval of his handling of the coronavirus, which according to the Fox poll stands at 43 percent, an 8 percent decrease from March and April. A separate ABC News/Ipsos poll out Friday morning finds approval of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus hitting a new low of 39 percent.

  15. An assistant to Donald Trump told him she had a fantastic dream last night. There was a humongous parade in Washington celebrating Trump.

    Millions lined the parade route, cheering when the President went past.

    Bands were playing; children were throwing confetti into the air; there were balloons everywhere. It was the biggest celebration Washington had ever seen. Sean Spicer could truthfully say the crowd was much bigger than that for Obama's inauguration.

    Trump was very impressed and said, "That's really great! By the way, how did I look in your dream? Was my hair okay?"

    His assistant said, "I couldn't tell, the casket was closed."

  16. The World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks killed 2,996. 96,004 deaths have resulted from COVID-19. President Trump blames an "invisible enemy." But is it really? Trump squandered 70 days after China notified WHO Dec 31 and US CDC was alerted Jan 3. And what was he doing? The same thing he is doing today. Golfing.
