Trump Campaign Manager Names The Blue States He Plans To Turn Red In 2020

Brad Parscale draws some new battle lines for the presidentís reelection effort.

By Ed Mazza

<snip>

ďIn every single metric weíre looking at being bigger, better and badder than we were in 2016,Ē Parscale told CBSís ďFace the NationĒ on Sunday, adding that the campaign plans to more than double the number of volunteers, from 700,000 in 2015 to 1.6 million next year.

Part of that strategy, he said, will put some blue states into play. Specifically, Parscale thinks Trump could win Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and New Mexico. The four states combined would mean 24 electoral votes.

<snip>

Colorado has voted Democratic in three straight presidential elections, with Clinton winning by 4.9 percentage points in 2016. Nevada has also voted Democratic in three elections but was much closer in 2016 with Clinton ahead by 2.4 points. New Mexico has gone Democratic in six of the last seven elections, with Clinton taking the state by 8.3 percentage points in 2016. New Hampshire has likewise voted Democratic in six of seven elections, but was far closer in 2016, with Clinton ahead of Trump by less than half a percentage point.

<snip>

Minnesota hasnít voted Republican since 1972, one of only three times the state turned red since 1932. Despite that long blue streak, Clinton won the stateís 10 electoral votes by just 1.5 percentage points in 2016.

AND to Donald Trump. That is how his people communicate with him, through the media.

24. That was my thought as well. Sending a message to Putin.

We're on to the Drumpf. He has neither done anything or said anything publicly to try and increase his voting base beyond those who already support him. Yes this message was intended for Putie to let him know he's open to receiving all the help that he can get from him.

3. Trump couldn't win Nevada if the Russians dropped paratroopers and occupied Vegas

Nevadans are paying higher taxes because of Trump. The man is despised here. Registered Democratic voters far outweigh the power and numbers of the one percent here and their underlings that dwell in the McMansions of Summerlin and Henderson. Workers still have some voice here...

I also find it difficult to imagine Trump winning either New Mexico, Colorado, New Hampshire or Minnesota.

5. Actually the GOP needs to be concerned about Texas, AZ, WI and MI.

RWers may be misinformed majority of the time, but healthcare is one of their most important priorities. The economy lie is floating by the corporate media, but alas, they even know how messed up it is.

12. Let's not be like Lying Republicans . . .

Not one single state has passed this law. Yet! Got my fingers crossed that the 18 states still considering it can get it passed. But California (Jerry Brown) and New Jersey (when it was Chris Christie) had their Governor's veto it.

26. Jerry Brown vetoed that?

Not that there's much chance of a Republican winning CA. Still....all Presidents usually DO product their tax returns, so what's the big deal?

11. Here is what is really going on in Colorado

Colorado Republicans are in an abject state of denial about the magnitude of their defeat in 2018 -- they lost almost everything. Every statewide office: Attorney General, Secretary of State, Governor. They even lost every county office in Jefferson County (except sheriff which wasn't contested) for the first time since maybe Watergate (the bellwether county in Colorado).

Trump was down ten points to Clinton and Johnson in 2016 -- Trump has a 57 percent disapproval in Colorado.

Unless Colorado Republicans find a way to move to the center (which they can't do), 2020 is going to be another electoral disaster for them; Trump has virtually no chance of winning this state.

Personally, I reject the mainstream media and the political pundits who hype the horserace and drama of the 2020 presidential election. In a fair election under relatively normal conditions, Trump is a landslide loser.

But ... take nothing for granted!

No state is out of reach with that sack of shit in the White House. Even is we canít win some states (like my state Idaho) letís make them spend money everywhere. Letís break their backs.

18. He really needs to worry about the blue states he stole

Hereís what we do to counter Parscale: we let Trump continue to self-immolate until the start of the primaries, we make a bunch of attack ads using Trumpís own words, we put something like a recreational weed initiative (something thatíll bring out the left) on the ballot in all the states Trump needs worst...AND WE DONíT VOTE FOR THIRD PARTY SPOILERS LIKE JILL STEIN! It is very simple, folks: there is one candidate on the Democratic ticket. If your mark doesnít go next to THAT candidate, regardless of who it is, you have voted for Trump.

19. New Mexico? Not a chance

New Mexico just went completely Blue and folks are very happy with our new Blue Governor, our Blue Reps and Senators.

No way New Mexico is gonna go for trump - especially with what he is trying to do to health care and his cruel and despicable actions on and plans for the border.

Trump Campaign Manager, Brad Pascale, is living on Earth 2 (as Rachel Maddow calls it) i.e. trump's delusional alternate reality where he is not only "supreme dictator" but also a "young vibrant man"
