Headline: Democrats discover surprising Trump policy Achilles’ heel that they will hammer in 2020 election

Democratic and progressive groups may have found the silver bullet that will penetrate Donald Trump’s phony populism. The Washington Post reported Thursday that while conducting focus groups for the Public Citizen watchdog group, veteran progressive pollster Stan Greenberg found “almost immediately” two weak points in Trump’s base.

“Greenberg found that working-class white voters who switched from Barack Obama to Trump are deeply angry about soaring prescription drug prices,” Plum Line writer Greg Sargent noted. “As a result, they vehemently oppose a key provision benefiting Big Pharma at the core of Trump’s renegotiation of NAFTA — which he touts as proof that he’s delivering for his working-class white base.”

Trump is likely to build his reelection campaign on two major issues, Sargent wrote: “prescription drugs and trade.” Both got air time during his State of the Union address earlier in the week.

But the linkage of the two for white, working-class Obama-turned-Trump voters is “game-changing,” Greenberg wrote in a blog provided to the Post.

Yep, Big Pharma got their payoff for backing Chump and the Cheaters. Now the rest of us are getting screwed. Nobody in the USA wants us to walk away from NAFTA. That is, nobody except those who colluded with Russia.
