What they don’t seem to understand is that you can point out your opponent’s weaknesses all day long, but if you don’t provide an alternative, then people will stick with the status quo. I’ve spoken to dozens of Republican women in recent months who have grown disillusioned with the Republican Party, and when I ask why they don’t defect, the answer is always the same: “It’s no better over there.”
Who are the next generation of leaders in the Democratic Party? Pelosi and Schumer? Elizabeth Warren? Bernie Sanders? I don’t see a farm team over there that would make any Republican operative pessimistic about the GOP’s chances moving forward.
You can’t beat something with nothing. But thanks to Democratic ineptness and refusal to look inward at their own shortcomings, and despite the president’s low approval numbers, the Democrats are on track to ensuring that in 2020, the country is going to re-elect him to another 4 years.
