Everyone is focused on how coronavirus will impact the immediate future. It is affecting our day to day lives, and it has already politically affected the Democrats’ primary race.
But we have to wonder, how will this influence the 2020 Election?
November is not that far away. And, despite this crisis, Americans will go to the polls to vote for a president. Almost nothing can stop that.
Some claim the virus’s negative impact on the economy will hurt Trump. Makes some sense, the strong economy was helping him, but it’s clearly not his fault for what’s going on now.
But one top Obama agent has a different take, and Democrats may not like it.
CNN senior political commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod took time out of their Democratic primary night coverage to warn his colleagues not sleep on how the President was handling the situation, because he could ride it to victory in November.
David Axelrod was forced to admit that the country likes to “rally behind the leader” who carries us through a crisis.
Remember, Americans elected FDR four times during WWII, breaking two centuries of precedent. Americans don’t like to rock the boat during a critical time.
We are watching the president take decisive action to battle this virus. His steady hand will prevent its spread and keep the economy afloat.
This can only help his re-election. And even Axelrod believes it.
And others agree.
From Daily Caller:
Fox News contributor Brit Hume described a scenario that could end up being “quite good news” for President Donald Trump as he leads the nation in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic…
“[If Trump] did a good job mobilizing the country and mobilizing the government and seeing us through it, that could be quite good news for the president.”
Hume stated that if Trump is able to help America weather this crisis, he will come out of it looking like a hero.
We will most likely have to choose between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Let’s compare the two.
Trump is a tireless warrior who is keeping the country together in the midst of a crisis.
Biden is a man who can’t finish a sentence and keeps losing his dentures.
Hmm… how is the 2020 Election going to play out?
Axelrod and Hume both understand that a strong leader can keep our country going. Americans will watch Trump battle this virus.
While Biden complains and does nothing.
Who do you think they’ll choose?
SHARE if you think Trump will win in 2020.
