Stanley B. Greenberg, pollster and political consultant to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, says demographic forces will kill the Republican Party in the 2020 election. His new book — R.I.P. G.O.P. — declares the party D.O.A., as the Democratic Party brings a message of hope for the “New America.” Does President Trump dismiss Greenberg’s claims only at his own peril?
President Trump comes under fire for saying, “In my opinion, you vote for a Democrat, you’re being very disloyal to Jewish people, and you’re being very disloyal to Israel.” Did Trump’s effort to attack Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar conjure an anti-Semitic trope and poison his efforts to win Jews to the Republican Party? How have Republicans failed to attract a group of voters who should love the party’s view of Israel?
Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a leading Democratic candidate for president and professing Christian, usually declares: “God has no political party.” Yet recently he told NBC News that God’s political preference would NOT be the Republican Party in the Trump era. He also had harsh innuendo about Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. What does this say about Mayor Pete’s character, his theology and his prospects as a 2020 presidential candidate?
Former Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart begs Democrats not to impeach President Trump. Better, the Clinton flack says, to let Trump serve out this term so he can keep on destroying the Republican party.
Donald Trump Jr. released his entire email thread from RussiaGate, revealing a meeting he had with a Russian lawyer to seek out dirt on Hillary Clinton. Is this enough evidence for a case for Trump-Russia collusion? The hosts of Right Angle think not and blast the left for their continued insistence on the Russia hoax.
58% of Democrats say their party needs new leadership and the Democrats’ minority in Congress is shrinking with each election, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is holding onto every last strand of power she can maintain. Bill, Scott, and Steve offer their two cents.
