New polling released from the New York Times Upshot with Siena College paints a troubling picture for Democrats just a year out from election day.
Nearly two-thirds of Trump voters who supported Democratic congressional candidates in the 2018 midterms that flipped control of House to Democrats reported they would back President Trump over the three candidates currently leading in the Democratic primary.

Two-thirds of battleground state voters who chose Trump in 2016 but selected Democrats in the midterms say they will return to the president next year.
Midterm victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin gave Democrats hope of retaking the Rust Belt battleground states that handed the presidency to Donald J. Trump in 2016.
Yet success in the midterms might not mean as muchfor Democratic presidential candidates as the party might think. Nearly two-thirds of voters in six battleground states who voted for President Trump in 2016 — but for Democratic congressional candidates in 2018 — say they intend to back the president against each of his top rivals, according to recent polling by The New York Times Upshot/Siena College.

Maybe now Democrats will stop beating white working-class voters over the head, calling them racists, homophobic, and sexist, but I seriously doubt it.
@realDonaldTrump stands up for the everyday American citizen; and any everyday citizen that does not support him is either uninformed, or misinformed ~

Trump following Republicans are called a cult, but it is the Democrats who have been brainwashed into blindly voting Democratic no matter how bad their lives are in Democratic cities and states. It is time for them to stop digging and climb out of the pit.
