Arizona Fully in Play for 2020



And it’s not just Arizona. According to his own internal polling, Trump is underwater against nearly any Dem challenger in the very states that put him in office.

You might, in normal political times, argue that a flailing President won’t necessarily bring down his party along with him.

But this is Trump: the one whom everything must be about. His black-hole like need for validation and constant agreement with his every whim is going to be a heavy anchor on the whole GOP team by election day 2020.

Consider McSally’s dilemma here in Arizona:

“The extremist forces Trump has unleashed and caters to almost exclusively could pull him further to the right at the expense of voters who gave him a chance in 2016. In 2018, Democrats, fueled by both anti-Trump sentiment and swing voters, won two statewide races: a hotly contested U.S. Senate seat and the secretary of state post.

McSally was the GOP candidate who lost that Senate race and was later appointed to her current seat when the late Sen. John McCain passed away. In her reelection bid next year, she will potentially face off against former astronaut Mark Kelly to keep that seat, one several critical races that will determine which party controls the upper chamber.

Trump hasn’t figured it out yet, but his divisive nativist policies aren’t helping McSally one bit. As he will surely continue to woo the extremists and stoke their ire, McSally will be left to walk the line between nativism and pro-business policies backed by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. It could potentially be a recipe for disaster for both her and Trump in 2020.”

The blaming Obama crap rules the day here with the Old hate filled white people,but,those old hate filled white people numbers are a dwindling daily. Palms Mortuary makes almost daily trips into our Community usually about 10am. Which is the prime passing away time of day.
