Michael Medved: Polls Can’t Predict Trump’s Democratic Opponent

Our fascination with polls sometimes produces premature conclusions about next year’s presidential race, including the assumptions that Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden will fight it out for the Democratic nomination. Past polling a year before elections has demonstrated scant predictive value: for 2004, Wesley Clark and Howard Dean were the clear Democratic front-runners, but neither survived the early primaries; John Kerry, who grabbed the nomination, ran fifth at this point.

Four years later, for 2008, Rudy Giuliani was way ahead among Republicans—topping the ultimate nominee, John McCain, more than 2 to 1. And in 2016, Donald Trump was a full six points behind then front-runner Ben Carson—who’s now in Trump’s cabinet. Primary contests are unpredictable, particularly with complicated races and multiple candidates. There’s still time for new entrants like Mike Bloomberg, or some other surprise latecomer, to shake up the faltering Democratic field.

Jerry Bowyer: Democrats Are Free-Traders Now

Trump has performed something of a miracle: he’s transformed the Democrats into free traders.

It wasn’t always like this: in fact, for years the Democrats were the party of protectionism. But now, solely because Trump is engaged in a trade war with China, several Democratic candidates for president have become crusaders for free trade.

In the last Democratic debate, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Beto O’Rourke advocated for the trade policies that used to be the domain of the Republican party. Harris said it bluntly: I’m “not a protectionist.”

Let’s be clear: the only reason this is happening is because of the Trump administration’s attitude towards China. A few years ago, the Democratic party was clearly moving towards protectionism.

This is simply the latest stage in Trump derangement syndrome: Trump is evil, therefore everything he does must be opposed.

So: Even if only for a day, Democrats are free-traders now.

But I’m not buying it.
