Skip to comments.The Hill says: Democrats pine for Trump as GOP nominee
Posted on 11/26/2022 1:30:34 PM PST by RandFan
Former President Trump met a muted response from many Republicans when he launched his 2024 White House bid at Mar-A-Lago this month.
But his campaign is stirring excitement, and even some glee, from Democrats.
Members of President Biden’s party are openly pining for Trump to become the 2024 Republican nominee, believing he is just too flawed to win a general election.
They argue that the situation today is markedly different from 2016, not least because voters now know what they get with Trump in office. And Democrats are eager to have such a beatable opponent in an election that is likely to be challenging for their party.
“I am hoping for Trump’s nomination, ‘cause I think he’s the easiest candidate to beat,” former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) told “The Briefing with Steve Scully” on SiriusXM this week.
Dean, a presidential candidate in 2004 and subsequently the head of the Democratic National Committee, noted that he had warned his party in 2016 that Trump could win the presidency.
Now, he insisted: “People are sick of this. They’re tired of the inflammatory stuff, they’re tired of the divisiveness, they’re tired of the lies. If Trump gets the nomination, I think we have got a pretty good chance of turning over some more states than we did the last time.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told The New York Times recently that even though he thought a Trump candidacy would be “an absolute horror show” for the health of American democracy, it would be “probably a good thing” for those who want Republicans to lose in 2024.
Democratic strategist Mark Longabaugh told this column that Trump is “infinitely weaker than he was.”

They shouldn’t pine for him. The next Republican will be just as much of a pushover.
If the Republicans wanted to win, just start a Biden Resistance- and anyone could be his old, Corrupt ass.
“Democrats pine for Trump as GOP nominee”
They don’t. Reporting this is just psy-ops to make MAGA re-think their stance.
The RATS should be careful what they wish for.
It might just bite them in the ass.
So they can get started on the 100 million branDUHn ballots. 🤡💩
They’re higher than a Georgia pine
The prez who gave them mail in ballots, masking, lockdowns, endless covid spending to pay people to do nothing… and a bumpstock ban.
Yes… I bet they are. He let unvetted Syrians because the old plo strategies work on trump.
Foreign policy and energy rockstar… but the record of perpetuating voter fraud and abuse of emergency powers.
We don’t get the freedoms back that he gave them.
However, there is a group that support him with his record of utter leftism for national policy.
Underestimate Orange Man Great at your own peril, Dems. You think you’ve got him figured out, but it’s the other way around.
Hope they follow through with lots of donations.
Translation = Dey scahd
The Left/RINOS have to cheat to win. That’s how bad it is for them. The GOP, so far, does absolutely nothing about Leftist/RINO cheating, and that’s how bad it is for them.
Don’t throw DeSantis into that briar patch, said the Uniparty.
Of course they do, that’s why they are running multiple investigations against him. You only use the full weight of the government against beatable opponents.
Why not? Trump provides the near perfect distraction for what the DEMs are doing behind the scenes rigging the votes.
C’mon, people...This is exactly like everything else with democrats...It’s just the opposite of what they REALLY want....
The Brandon hearings haven’t even begun yet.
