Trump Expands GOP Base As Dems Disintegrate

David Catron, The American Spectator

Bernie Sanders' "army" of young voters won’t be there in the general election — they may not even know when or how to vote — unless they are the focus of a well-led, well-financed, technologically-savvy campaign operation unencumbered by internecine party warfare. In the 2020 election cycle only the Trump reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee come close to fitting that description. They have nearly unanimous GOP support and are signing up new recruits every day from the ranks of the very people the Democrats abandoned after 2008. While the Democrats squabble among themselves and slander the President, he is situating himself to win the electoral college and the popular vote in 2020.

The GOP Base Is Done Tolerating RINO Collaboration With The Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Never Trump is just another flavor of narcissism, and Burr’s selfishness will shaft the rest of his Senate colleagues most of all in 2020. He doesn’t care – and he expects the Senate collegiality he is ignoring as he hurts his team will protect him from the blistering criticism he deserves from other Republicans. Pity poor Thom Tillis, North Carolina’s other senator. Most of us already suspect he’s squishy. Tillis has to run in 2020 and now Burr’s brought this Schiff-storm down on him. Burr’s behavior was bad enough that Tillis offered tweets in protest, which is a big deal among senators. When Tillis loses, he can thank his good buddy Burr the Blue Falcon.

These are Our Republican Leaders?

Daniel Horowitz, Red State

Democrats harness the power of their base to advance the cause of their ideology and party platform. Republican leaders, on the other hand, are at war with their party’s platform. 

Mitch McConnell Is Imploding

Dan Reihl, ReihlWorld.com

McConnell is effectively out of touch with the GOP base and now routinely being owned by Harry Reid and the Democrats. Worse, all he seems capable of now is lashing out at his own side.
