    Tucker Carlson: Bernie Sanders capable of taking 'many thousands' of Trump voters

    Basically Tucker decided to trigger some faithful Fox viewers again on his show by speaking unpopular facts -- and even with his spin, he couldn't change the fact that Bernie isn't to be taken lightly...He rightly said that Sanders can take many thousands of Trump voters if he is the Dem candidate..

    "Fox News' Tucker Carlson said on Monday said that he thinks Sen. Sanders can take many thousands of votes from Donald Trump if the longtime senator becomes the Democratic presidential nominee. 'America remains as divided as it was three years ago. No matter what happens, nobody’s going to win this election in a national landslide. Those don’t happen anymore. Trump could lose. Will he? That depends on what he runs on. If Sanders pledges to forgive student loans, he’ll still win many thousands of voters who went for Donald Trump last time. Debt is crushing an entire generation of Americans. Republicans need a plan to make it better, or they’ll be left behind.”

    He then went on to point out the recent Pew research study that shows just 31% of working class Americans say the economy is helping them and their families, and just 32% say they believe the current economy helps the middle class. Roughly 50% of Americans in the study say they are being hurt by current economic conditions. As usual, nearly 70% of wealthy Americans in the study say the economy is great for them -- but as Tucker said, Trump's base isn't supposed to be the wealthy......So the policies Trump runs on this year matters -- and simply trolling on Twitter, forwarding offensive memes and simple rhetoric won't be enough, he will have to run on policies that appeal to those working class voters -- for real this time...

    As Tucker warned...if Republicans think a Trump win in 2020 is going to be a shoe-in, they are making a serious mistake -- just like in 2016, when many thought Hillary was assured.....and speaking of Hillary --- she is also back again, attacking Bernie...why? Because she is a corporate establishment hack...which further proves my point that being a strong progressive is how you win against Trump, not being a moderate shill for corporations who thinks always capitulating to the status quo is how you excite your base...it isn't....

    Bernie has my vote and I voted Donnie last time. Though I likely won’t vote, since it doesn’t make any difference.

    After Trump won the election I said that if Bernie had been allowed to be the Dem opponent, he might have beaten Trump. It would have been closer than Hillary made it. I also think Biden could have had a chance.

    I think 2020 is totally different. Trump has 4 years to prove he is the real deal. He's getting things done in spite of the interference and distractions. Unlike 2016 when he was an unknown quantity and people were screaming that the market would tank and the sky would fall, Americans now know better.

    Bernie has about 25% of the chance he had in 2016, Biden maybe 30%. If I were Trumps campaign team, I would already have 100 clips lined up that would not bode well for Bernie in the Rustbelt or Florida. Maybe more if going against Biden.

    2020 Will be about policies and results, the "Orange Man bad and dangerous" won't work this time. In fact, the Boy Who Cried Wolf will be on everyones minds.

    Trump still has to campaign hard, energize the country and his base, but, as long as he keeps his promises as he has, campaigns vigorously as he did in 2016, he wins in 2020 against anyone.

    MORE THAN 40% of recent Trump Rally attendees have been Democrats or Independents. Blacks and LEGAL "Hispanics" are supporting Trump in percentages that are greater than any time in the past 20 years. As the Lefty Presidential candidates become more and more strident and crazy, Trump's chances look better and better.

    Tucker Carlson is paid to say things that draw attention to himself. See? It WORKED!
