Why are there so many polls? Polls are popular because everyone wants to know now who is going to win the 2020 presidential election. Each new poll gives us a little glimpse into what the future may hold.
And with Trump holding his re-election launch rally last night in Orlando, the question of will he or won’t he get re-elected is on everyone’s minds.
What if we ignore the polls? What does history tell us will happen?
“No president has been denied re-election when there hasn’t been a recession in the two years prior to the election. However, no president with approval rates as low as President Trump’s has been re-elected either.” (via PoliticalWire)
That’s what is tricky about 2020. No matter what, history will be made in 2020. Trump will either lose the election even though there isn’t a recession, or, he’ll get re-elected despite his terrible approval rates.
The truth is that we don’t know and won’t know until all the results are in after Election Day. My advice is this: Don’t let any polls or media stories or anything else take you off-course with your organizing. Whether it’s every day or every week, take some sort of action to build towards the result we all want: Trump out as president, and one of our terrific Democratic candidates sitting in the Oval Office instead. Plus a few hundred other flipped seats all over the country, of course.
