The article goes on to point out that resistance politics are not popular and the booming economy makes that brand of politics even more untenable to voters.
Sorry, Joe, but it won’t happen — anywhere. Whoever the Democratic nominee turns out to be, President Trump will win in 2020. Anti-Trump Democrats better start preparing for reality — four more years of a Trump administration.
To a certain extent, they’ll only have themselves to blame. The Democratic Party has become so consumed with #Resistance politics and “stick it to Trump” policies that the general public only sees a hysterical, radicalized alternative to the status quo. Even those who may oppose President Trump aren’t exactly eager to support liberal Democrats.
Just ask them yourself. According to a recent Gallup Poll, 54 percent of rank-and-file Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents believe that their party should move closer to the center. High-profile liberals like Jimmy Carter and Howard Schultz — now eyeing a run as an independent — are urging Democrats to embrace centrism as we speak.
Fortunately for President Trump, their words are falling on deaf ears. Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., two of the highest-profile Democrats in the field, have now included impeachment in their 2020 platform, claiming Congress must "prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority," in the words of the Mueller report. This, despite the general public’s overwhelming opposition to President Trump’s impeachment.
