Economy and 2020

Economic numbers are good but obviously Economic angst and income inequality is growing. In Nashville, there are so many job openings that stores are closing early because they can't staff up. I dont think these economic numbers will help Trump as it has traditionally helped candidates but it won't hurt. Let's be real- those of us on here are hyper political. The vast majority of Americans don't follow politics, go to work, take thier kids to sports, events ect and never watch the cable news stories that we opine about. They don't know the players in the impeachment probes and most dont know who represents them in Congress. If the average family has adults who are working, have gotten a pay raise and see thier 401k is up- everything else going on in the political world we are obsessed with may be a moot point. So, no matter how much these people may be struggling, many may be less apt to change course in 2020. We have to continually provide a different narrative. Bill Clinton was not personally liked but won after being impeached. We can't downplay a 3.5% unemployment rate. People may be struggling but they are working- maybe two jobs but that security in itself is a plus for an incumbent. Keep educating and fighting !

Trump Foundation and Trump Univ

Why doesn't the leading Democratic candidates mention this daily? The GOP does such a god job of finding a narrative and driving it home obsessively. These were actually fraudulent entities... I would remind people every interview.

Give em hell Joe.

I love fighting Joe. Our democracy is at stake. A lot of America loves a fighter even if it's a bit crass. You better bring brass knuckles to these events. I'm even more for Joe. Tired of mealey mouth politicians. Bill Clinton never got pushed around. Where the hell is James Carvell... bring him on board

The Irishman

Robert DeNiro is a national treasure

Thanksgiving peace treaty

My family get togethers tend to be full of friendly but passionate political debate. My family is probably 60-40 progressive and the lines are urban, rural really. This year was different. There was an element of exhaustion and no one really brought up politics. On one occasion, we just agreed we were all tired of it and had a very relaxing, loving day.

Stroke betting lines

will increase dramatically if Trump becomes only the 3rd President to be impeached. Clinton moved on and had thick skin. Can you imagine Trump when our nominee refers to him as impeached President Trump for 9 months straight? He will be a wteck.

Florida...Trumps last stand

Just read a great piece on Florida ( can't post it from phone but it is from today if you want to Google it). Trumps team has concluded that there is likely zero path to win without Florida. They have set aside 300 million to spend in Florida alone and plan on keeping Trump there almost half the campaign . Good news is demographic changes favor Democrats, along with influx of 69k Puerto Ricans that are pissed. Downside, the GOP leads slightly with new registrations since 2016 but that doesn't count for those that register as independent. Florida would make it an early election night folks..

Youth

We are going to have to have some youth on our ticket. I was hoping to see the contrast between. Trump and a new generation but it's not to be. That said, a VP needs to be young. In have two kids that are just voting age. I work with and coach around hundreds of young adults. What worries me is they just don't relate to our potential nominees. I'm not saying they won't vote but the passion is miniscule to what I saw with Obama.

Impeached and racist

are terms that should be attached to Trump - even if he isn't convicted. Democrats need to play below the belt once we have a nominee. Any reference to Trump during debates, interviews or in public the term Impeached and/or racist should be used. Drill it home because if he isn't convicted in Senate the public will need to be reminded 24/7. No more Mr. Nice Guy

VP picks

Given the age and ethnicity of our likely nominee AND the necessity to bring our base and more moderate elements of party together- I think the VP pick this cycle is crucial. It could, literally, boost or impede our nominee. Typically it's a safe choice. This time it could be a demographically risky choice...
