To Beat Trump, 2020 Democrats Will Need to Convince Voters They Can Be Trusted with the Economy

Michael Tanner, National Review

A combination of deregulation, loose monetary policy, and even looser fiscal policy has sustained and strengthened a long-running recovery. Most opinion about the president is already set in concrete. Neither his base nor the Democrats’ is going to be moved by the fluctuations of economic reporting. Perhaps that is why polls show only a weak correlation between voters’ positive feelings about the economy and their approval of Trump. All of which means that if Democrats hope to win this fall, they will have to find a way to reassure voters that they don’t intend to upend the economic gains won on Trump’s watch. And the debate did not provide any evidence that they’re yet up to the task.
