Politics in America, and particularly so in 2019, are a game of “what if’s”.
Legislators, by their very nature, are creatures of conditioning. They find lowest common denominator between themselves and their constituents and then, in a grinding erosion not unlike that of a glacier, they carve valleys of influence that leads all resources back down to their coffers. They rinse, repeat, and reap the rewards of their work by accumulating taxpayer dollars that are then used to again influence the nation as a whole.
They use these “what if’s” to conjure hypothetical hyperbole in ways that frighten or anger Americans, because emotional response is a surefire way to keep us tuned in to their horse and pony show. Then, with our attention squarely in their grasp, they run for re-election, time and time again.
A new “what if” has arrived today, and it will surely fall victim to exploitation by the democrats.
What if the 2020 presidential election were held today?
In a national head-to-head matchup, the poll found Biden taking 53 percent against 40 percent for Trump, with the poll’s assistant director describing it as a “landslide” margin.
Five other Democratic contenders also lead the president: Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hold healthy leads over Trump, with Sanders up by 9 points, Harris ahead by 8 and Warren leading by 7.
Of course, it should be noted that Donald Trump’s election in 2016 took the mainstream media and pollsters by surprise as well, with opponent Hillary Clinton not having bothered to even write a concession speech.
And, as with all vagaries and vitriol, they could rigorously reshape the political landscape of our great nation in the next 17 months.
