Skip to comments.Five reasons why Democrat turnout will be depressed while GOP turnout will be high in November 2020
Posted on 02/07/2020 7:51:10 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Because the American electorate is rather evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, turnout becomes the key to electoral success in November. While a lot can happen in nine months, there are five factors that I see discouraging Democrat turnout and helping the GOP.
1. The Biden family scandals
Thanks to Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and the impeachment lynch mob, the lid has been blown off the Biden familys practice of trading on the patriarchs position to enrich themselves. Bidens campaign is imploding, so he wont be on the ballot. But the investigations of Hunter and Burisma are heating up and will cast a pall over the party. Biden was supposed to bethe unifier, a tangible link to the reign of St. Barack, whose appeal to blue collars and African-Americans was supposed to recover lost voters and motivate turnout among the most critical segment of the base.
2. The Democrat partys bungling of the Iowa caucus count
They are supposed to be the party of science, of the smart guys, the ones who can restructure the economy and medical systems, but they cant even count votes. Even with 100% of the vote finally reported, there are protests that errors and inconsistencies are rampant, and even friendly media outlets are reporting the doubts. Trust in the party is tanking. And it is not just Republicans that are mistrustful.
3. Genuine socialists are trying to take over the party
Among those distrusting the party apparatus are the Bernshevik faction of the Democrats. If the plutocrats somehow cant stop them, a lot of the suburban voters the Democrats have made inroads on will stay home rather than vote for a man who wants to tax away their wealth because it is unfair they live in nice neighborhoods.

4. Blacks are being aggressively courted by Trump
5. The Democrat party is being purchased by the sixth richest man in the world
“4. Blacks are being aggressively courted by Trump”
This is something the Rats cannot undo. They can dump Bernie due to his Commie/Socialist, however many Blacks are done with ‘The Plantation’.
I have a serious question if there will even BE a Democrat party in November.
I really hope this is correct...I feel the democrats know they don’t have a real presidential candidate so they might put most of their efforts into holding the House and trying to take the Senate...This we have to stop...We need to regain the House to accomplish a lot of what we conservatives strive for....
Theyre gonna have a civil war before they settle on a nominee.
Armed Trump supporters guarding the polling places to keep demodrones away? You KNOW that will come up someplace. Or the proud boys or white supremacists helping Trump steal yet another election. Or maybe even spetsnaz troops in some locations.
3b. Hard-left candidates might garner a greater popular vote, but have insufficient attraction to center and right-leaning states - ultimately failing to get enough Electoral votes.
Trump was a fluke: a mid-right extremist. He’s not far-right, being verbally supportive but not aggressive on such issues as abortion, gun rights, low taxes, etc. (He _could_, but hasn’t, issued viable Executive Orders such as: prosecuting pre-birth “infanticide”, accelerating BATFE Form 1 & 4 processing, declaring all Selective Service registrants exempt from 922(o), flooding Congress with requests to rescind spending, etc.)
The GOP must get back control of the House. It’s as important as Trump’s re-election.
Bigly. Pray for long coattails.
Biden is toast. Info on money laundering in Ukraine about to explode.
Can you imagine if Bernie takes his bros Third Party?
The two kinda go hand-in-hand. When a Popular candidate is on the ballot, that gives votes to candidates 'down ballot' an uplift. RAT pundits are already 'sending up flares' since turnout in the Iowa caucus was so low - it suggests there is no unity around a single RAT candidate and turnout could be lower in the fall.
Trump is already riding a wave - hope he didn't crest too soon.
Normal Democrats are having none of what the Party is pushing and they jumping ship to President Trump.
The Democrat party has abandoned them so they are looking to President Trump
For years it had always been spotlighted that the republicans had in=fighting. Anyone with a brain knows that is true.
The democrats have been led with an iron fist for years, and none dared to step out of the day.
It is pleasurable now to see the younger very hardcore socialists come to the forefront of the democrat party and pull them very hard to the left.
In order to keep those newbies and their young voters happy, Nancy has to reveal just how far she is to the left. That will simply turn off the middle of the road undecided voters.
POTUS is going to do so well in November that he will generate a ton of votes for the down-ballot GOP candidates.
Having the US House and Keeping the US Senate is going to really help us this time. I can smell the new tax cuts from here.
I beg to differ. They are turning out to vote...
That's an interesting point. There is lots of infighting going on between the powers-that-be, the upstarts that believe that they should have a say, and the extremists (which is most of the Dems anyway, except they themselves are fragmented about which direction and what the one "righteous" cause should be).
If the DNC screws Bernie over again, they will have no chance in hell of beating Trump, and you could even see a splinter party forming.
You of course are using the old fashioned metaphorical meaning of "civil war" meaning a political divide that splinters a party in two.
The other usage will be reserved for what happens if the working-within-the-system method fails to bear fruit in November. Virginia's anti-2nd Amendment actions are a step in that unhappy direction.
It seems Bloomberg made Soros an offer he couldn't refuse.
