Michael Medved: The Key Three Will Determine Everything

Democrats won’t repeat their huge mistake of 2016—focusing on the popular vote and national polling while ignoring crucial mechanics of the Electoral College.

To unseat Trump, the Democrats must flip at least three of the nine crucial swing states Trump won last time. Now that won’t be easy, with perennial battlegrounds Ohio and Florida trending in a strongly Republican direction.

Instead, Democrats will concentrate on three heartland pick-ups: Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

In all three states, Republicans fared very badly in 2018, losing Senate and governor’s races. Trump needs to hold just one of these three keystones and he’ll win: even if Democrats take both Michigan and Pennsylvania—the two larger prizes of the “key three”—Trump still gets 270 and wins the presidency by a single electoral vote.

Look for another close, fierce, fight to the finish!

Michael Medved: Altering America Beyond Recognition

Every election, candidates claim: “This is the most important election of our lifetime” but that’s generally untrue. For better or worse, no President since Reagan has profoundly transformed the country, but 2020 could well be different.

Democrats seem determined to run on a radical, irresponsible platform that includes the Green New Deal, race-based reparations, Medicare for all, “soak the rich” Tax hikes, and free pre-school and college. Such programs would bring a vast expansion of the welfare state, strangling growth and swelling budget deficits.

Even worse, Democrats seek permanent rule by discarding the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and destroying conservative media with some version of the discredited “fairness doctrine.” They also seek instant statehood for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico—guaranteeing four new Democratic Senators. If Democrats sweep both White House and Senate next year, America could be altered beyond recognition – perhaps beyond recovery.

Lanhee Chen: What We’re Learning From the Slate of Democratic Presidential Candidates

The 2020 Democratic presidential field continues to take shape, and what’s been more revealing are the people who have decided not to run, as opposed to those who have.

Mike Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York City, would have been a formidable candidate with his wealth and moderate positions on economic issues.  He’s not running.

Sherrod Brown, a US Senator from c, would have brought a liberal pragmatic voice to the primary campaign.  He’s not running either.

Those who are left are either extreme liberals like Beto, Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders, or previously moderate Democrats like former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper who now struggled to even admit that he’s a capitalist.

With Medicare-for-all and the Green New Deal dominating the policy discussion amongst the contenders, we shouldn’t be surprised that centrist Americans have been squeezed out of the Democratic Party.

And that’s a trend that works in President Trump’s favor as he seeks re-election in 2020.

Lanhee Chen: The Green New Deal Presents Americans With a Choice

Some in the mainstream media have tried to marginalize the Green New Deal, characterizing it as only relevant to a few politicians on the far left.

The reality is very different.  The Green New Deal has become the policy manifesto for many prominent Democrats—including most of the leading candidates for president in 2020.

Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have all embraced the Green New Deal as their own because they’re politicians, they understand they cannot secure the presidential nomination for the Democrats if they don’t court and cater to the progressive left.

But, in so doing, they’ve handed President Trump a big gift. He’ll be able to frame the upcoming election as a fundamental choice between historic American free enterprise and policies that verge toward centralized decision-making, more government control, and, yes, socialism.

That’s an easy choice for the American people to make.
