Can Democrats Ever Win the White House Again?

Two months ago most Americans were being led to believe Hillary Clinton was going to win the White House and, in contrast, that Republicans could never win the presidency again.

Since Obama was elected we have heard this narrative over and over again promoted by Democrats and the Clinton-loving media that Republicans can never win the White House because of changing demographics and voting patterns, and that Hillary’s election would only seal the deal.

For instance, it was simply assumed that Republican presidential candidates could never again win certain crucial electoral states that Democrats have been winning since the 1980s like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania – all states won by Donald Trump on November 8, by the way, and vital to his electoral romp by 74 votes.

It is amazing how one election can turn the whole world around.

So the question now is: Can Democrats ever win the White House again?

And the answer for the foreseeable future is NO. predicted Trump’s victory since 2011, and predicts now that Trump will be a two-term president because Trump is smart and is going to avoid the pitfalls of past presidents. He is going to give us strong leadership that puts America first, no wars like Iraq, no sweeping programs like Obamacare, no personal scandals like Bill Clinton, etc.

Already Trump is taking charge and changing the national tone in a way that Americans did not think possible. Americans already are pleased, even though Trump has not even taken office. His approval numbers have skyrocketed since November 8, and Obama has all but disappeared.

Thus we will probably have a Republican president until 2024 since incumbents traditionally have a big advantage after one term. And if Trump is successful, which believes that he will be, then we very well could have a president Mike Pence elected in 2024. And these two leaders will bring even more Republican and conservative officeholders along with them.

In a nutshell 2016 was a crucial ‘turning point’ election and Hillary Clinton lost and this changed everything. This makes the Democrats look bad. After all, the media and the Democrats groomed Hillary to be president for 25 years and it all disappeared in 12 hours of voting on election day.

Thus if Hillary was beaten by a political amateur like Trump what does this say about the “invincible” Democrats?

It says that they are all smoke and mirrors. Once a person or an entity like the Democrats is unmasked it does major damage, and Hillary’s defeat means that Americans will never think about Democrats or their media cronies in the same way again for a long time. This election is going to go down in the history books as the most memorable in the last 100 years, perhaps ever.

It even is being reported that Hillary spent $1.2 billion on her campaign and that Trump only spent half as much. And that Trump had no “ground game” at all to get out the votes on election day. Yet Trump still won. So his election tosses the old campaign paradigms out the window… along with the Democrat party. made several predictions and recommendations that were reflected in the Trump victory that feed into this narrative:

First, I said over and over since 2012 that Hillary Clinton was a weak candidate who could be beaten. I said that she was all style and no substance, that she was only being promoted since she was a woman, that she did not speak well, often made mistakes, had significant health problems and was unappealing as a person.

Even worse, the Democrats now have no candidates in the wings for the 2020 election. They simply assumed that Hillary was going to win and would be the incumbent in 2020. And now they are in a desperate scramble to find a candidate but are finding the cupboard bare.

Second, I said that Trump was the only candidate who could beat Hillary because he was not afraid of her. I was right. Trump went after her ruthlessly and that is how he won.

The media are scrupulously ignoring the fact that Trump’s debate performances contributed significantly to his victory. Don’t think that 70 million or 80 million viewers were not affected by Trump’s supreme confidence and searing debate ripostes.

Normally Republicans play defense in debates as Democrats tick off all of the things that they are giving away for free. Trump did not play the game. Republicans and conservatives now have learned a valuable lesson from Trump – play hardball!

Third, has been urging Republicans and conservatives for many years to conduct voter-registration drives among millions of white people in rural and small-town America, the people who turned out and elected Donald Trump. Yet Trump did that voter registration automatically by speaking directly to these people. Good. Job done. Check it off the list.

Fourth, I said that Republican voters under Trump were vastly more “enthusiastic” than Democrats and that this would translate into Trump’s victory. This enthusiasm will increase with Trump’s presidency. It already is growing. Trump’s poll numbers have skyrocketed since election day.

Fifth, I have explained many times that crucial electoral states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio all elected reform-minded Republican governors in 2010 as a response to economic crises that Democrats not only had caused – through aggressive unions, regulations and taxes that drove jobs out – but had failed to even address or express concern over.

Thus in 2010 voters in those states elected tough reform-minded Republican governors Scott Walker, Rick Snyder, Tom Corbett and John Kasich who all produced significant improvements (only Corbett was not re-elected in 2014).

In other words, the voters in those allegedly Democratic states got to see side-by-side the difference between Democrat and Republican policies. This greatly helped Trump to win those allegedly “blue” states.

Now voters nationally are going to see that difference. They have seen the economic stagnation, the open borders, the spike in crime and murders of law enforcement officers by blacks and illegal aliens, the sex-changer assaults on our bathrooms, and the deterioration of American foreign policy under Obama.

When Trump turns these situations around there is going to be a major surge toward Republicanism and conservatism. This surge will not be fueled only by white voters. As blacks, poor people, hispanics, gays, lesbians, union members, muslims and other traditional Democrats see Trump turn the nation around they will turn increasingly to “the right”.

Republicans do not need to win over every member of every one of these groups either. They just need to turn 1% or 2% or 3% of each group in each election away from the Democrats, which is easily doable. This will lead to an ever bigger Republican majority than the one that already has taken hold.

Here is the proof of that majority. When Trump is inaugurated on January 20 Republicans will control:

*the White House and the enormous power that goes with it, including the power to appoint Supreme Court justices and federal judges, which will re-make American jurisprudence for decades to come;
*the US Senate, with 52 Republican US senators out of 100. That number even could go to 53 since one Democrat may switch parties. This gives Republicans majority control of the Senate again, which they were expected to lose in the recent election. This means that Trump will generally get all of the legislation that he wants and the appointments that he wants, including the Supreme Court. His first Court pick could be Ted Cruz of Texas;
*the US House of Representative with 247 Republicans to 188 Democrats, a historic GOP majority. As Republican dominance continues long-serving Democrats may quit out of frustration, leading to a possible snowball effect in favor of the GOP;
*Republicans will hold 33 out of 50 governorships. Republican governors rule almost all of the thriving and growing American states, and also many once-liberal states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Even ultra-liberal Vermont just elected a Republican governor by a whopping 9 points.
*Republicans will have majority control of 68 out of 98 state legislative bodies.
*Republicans have been doing extremely well in mid-term elections and so you can expect their power to rise even more in 2018, with Trump there to help them. In 2018 eight Republican US senators are up for re-election and 25(!) Democrats are. This will provide a clear opportunity for another rout of the Democrats and could even take Republicans to 60 US Senate seats, the “magic number” that would give Trump almost unlimited power.
