    How do you expect to win 2020 with even fewer 'conservatives' supporting the Trump? Expand your information sources, please.

    Reasonable policies that counteract systemic discrimination?
    Nah, I want the gays to be Christian gays. Since that obviously can't exist, they disappear.

    You're misinformed. Jews don't vote republican for good reason. And the random 2-3 people you mention do not represent the democratic party.

    You act like there are no people in the republican party who despise jews. I can look at how many jews are in congress to tell where their position stands.

    Liz Peek is a joke.

    Please, the only reason a gridlock happened to begin with was because he wouldn't compromise on border security. Between Trump and McConnell there was no compromise to be found.

    No one of value is an activist for abortion, despite her desperate attempt to make people believe it.

    No they aren't. You are full of it.

    So wait. You think we should give in to a border wall because you think, but can't confirm, a single gang member committed murder? Are you that stupid, Liz? You think our national budget should be dictated by a single incident? Get out of here.

    Oh good, another fictional war to add to Fox's toolkit. See: War on Christmas, War on Success, War on American Values, etc. It is so laughable it should be a meme.

    In short, this article sucks and provides no value or meaningful dialogue to anything.

    That is possible but it depends. If the Republicans produce a moderate candidate, I think it is reasonable.

    I debunked Liz Peek because I found her analysis blindly partisan and useless. If the Republicans take a conservative approach to their fiscal platform while at the same time take a moderate (not extreme) position on social issues, they can win in 2020. I do not believe Trump is their guy for this particular assignment.

    Well, with today's 52% approval rating, I don't think that's going to be a problem.

    According to Rasmussen, the least accurate and most GOP biased of the American pollsters?
    How Popular Is Donald Trump?

    Of course I would go with a source in good standing that includes a wide variety of other sources with excellent transparency? Aw, thank you.

    We all know how reliable polling is, don't we? Ask Hillary. :D To be fair, I do not think 2020 will be the cake walk the left wants it to be.

    This seems to me like very good branding for the Republicans. Donald Trump is a profound genius with this sort of stuff... he may know how to let his rating lag and then raise it at the appropriate time.

    I agree with the outlook regarding moderates and independents if Dems continue to swing further left and if their candidate reflects that shift. Trump could easily bank on this during a reelection campaign and will in my view. After all there is a difference between the campaign and what is enacted as policy after an election.

    You sound like a 2016 pollster.

    Can you at least try to find a reliable source? If your only source is extreme right wing news then it brings all of your claims into question.
