Democrats are losing the plot in their fight to unseat Trump in 2020

After watching both of the Democratic debates, in which 10 Democratic candidates running for president each night presented their cases to the American public, I am concerned that the Democrats are losing sight of their 2020 goal.

According to a recent USA Today poll, Democratic voters’ number one concern is making Donald Trump a one-term president. This is more important to them than any one issue. And yet, this was certainly not apparent from watching the debates.

Data shows that our nation remains as divided as ever. Exit polling from the 2018 midterm elections showed that voters, by a margin of 76 percent, felt the nation was becoming even more divided. That’s not a percentage that Democrats can afford to ignore.

So what are they doing talking about wiping out private insurance or providing taxpayer-funded health care to undocumented workers? They are only appealing to far-left faction of the Democrats with that, and certainly aren’t appealing to the mass of voters. Guess who they need on their side in order to win the general election?

In the last election, it was Independents who determined the outcome. And it is those Independents who will decide again in 2020. So if Democrats can reach those voters with issues that appeal to them, they’d stand a good chance of swinging them left rather than right.
