Morgan noted that the polls in key states look bad for Trump but that it doesn't matter. He pointed to the energy and excitement Trump is able to bring as he fills arenas. This is what should be the measuring stick for Trump in 2020 Morgan argues.
In an op-ed published Thursday by The Daily Mail, former CNN host Piers Morgan made the case for why you can "forget the polls" because "rampaging Trump's going to win easily in 2020 unless Democrat ostriches drag their heads out of the sand and wake up to reality."
"[W]hen Trump launched his 2020 campaign on Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, I didn't sense I was watching a guy who's going to lose," writes Morgan. "In fact, I got the complete opposite feeling. Trump exuded the confident all-conquering swagger of someone who defied all polls and logic last time, and fully intends to do so again."
The campaign launch was "a virtuoso Trump rally performance," he explains, "carried out with all the passion, energy, chutzpah and showmanship of another septuagenarian, Mick Jagger, strutting around a big stadium." Trump "belted out all his greatest crowd-pleasing hits from The Wall and 'Fake News' media to the rigged system, special counsel Mueller's 'witch-hunt' and 'bogus' Russia collusion," and worked in some new material as well. And the crowd loved it.
The point, Morgan stresses, is that Trump looks like a man at the top of his political game and that wave he was riding in 2016 seems to be going strong. Part of the reason for his renewed vigor, suggests Morgan, is the conclusion of the Mueller report.
