Democrats think they can easily win back the working class voters they lost to Trump in 2016.
They think Trump’s win was a fluke. A mistake that can be righted in 2020.
They’re wrong. People in states like Michigan know what Trump has done for them.
The FOX Business Network reports:
Top swing state Democrat says Trump in 2020 facing no competition
It’s Election Day 2019 here in Macomb County, Michigan. One year from now, this area will try to do what it does best: pick the next president. The so-called “Reagan Democrats” were born here in the 1980s and Macomb has had a habit of picking winners in recent election cycles as well.
The voters here have picked the winning candidate in five of the past six presidential elections. The only one they missed in that span was 2000, slightly favoring Al Gore over George W. Bush.
As we look forward to what might happen here next year, a very important component of the local economy is starting to show signs of a slowdown. So far this year, more than 6,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost in Michigan even as the state continues to add positions in other areas.
The unemployment rate is still historically quite low in Macomb County, where the auto industry is king. However, at an even 4%, it has ticked up from 3.7% last year.
Even so, some Democrats, including Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, still see Trump as the frontrunner.
“I don’t see the excitement here for any of the [Democrat] candidates,” Hackel says, adding that Trump “still resonates in Macomb County.”
This is the key line from the report:
The voters FOX Business talked to here had opinions of President Trump ranging from “He’s just not good for the country” to “He’s done more for labor than maybe the last eight presidents combined.”

Instead of trying to win back voters like the man in the video, Democrats have wasted the last three years playing to Trump-hating leftists and trying to undo the 2016 election.
Now it’s too late for them to change their strategy.
It’s probably going to cost them, big time.
