Rarely has a political party gone from confidence to gloom as quickly as Democrats did last week. In rapid-fire blows, impeachment foundered in the Senate, President Trump delivered a politically effective State of the Union address, and the Iowa caucuses imploded in a flurry of intraparty recriminations.

Democrats also began to realize that the economy’s continuing strength will complicate their messaging and that the failed effort to remove Mr. Trump from office may have negative political consequences. Nearly 60% of Americans say they are better off financially than they were four years ago. A much-discussed Gallup survey put Mr. Trump’s job approval at 49%, a personal best, and found rising public approval of and identification with the Republican Party.

Bannon says Democrats won't stop effort to impeach Trump

  Bannon says Democrats won't stop effort to impeach Trump Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said Sunday that Democrats won't stop their effort to impeach President Trump. Bannon told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) "from day one" has aimed to "destroy Trump" in order to take back the White House."This is not going to stop," he said. "They're going to subpoena more people. They're going to leak more information. And this is why I don't mind getting John Bolton as a witness."The former chief strategist said the Democrats' impeachment efforts stem from the Democratic primary process and the Iowa caucuses.

It had to come. It couldn' t last. How could we have been so naive as to think that the gods - ever jealous of mankind's technical prowess - would let us get away with an innovation as benign as the mobile phone? Like families across the country, the Johnson household has recently taken a momentous step.

Don ’ t press the panic button until you think it through. Town didn' t hit the panic button and added to their tally through Morien with his second and a late Michael Bowman strike, but they were made to sweat for the win when Connor Johnson struck at the other end with four minutes to go.

An avowed socialist began to consolidate the Democrats’ progressive wing and emerged as a front-runner for the presidential nomination. Three leading center-left candidates—Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg—intensified their attacks on one another while Michael Bloomberg, armed with unlimited money, prepared for Super Tuesday (March 3). The former New York mayor already enjoys 15% support nationally, according to the Feb. 10 Quinnipiac survey. Doubts multiplied that any candidate has what it takes to win the general election. Many Democrats feared a serious party split.

To those of us who have been around for a while, the Democrats’ abrupt descent into despair seems premature. Here’s why:

Democrats chant in support of drug prices bill during State of the Union

  Democrats chant in support of drug prices bill during State of the Union A group of House Democrats chanted in support of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) signature drug pricing bill during President Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday.As Trump was delivering his speech on Tuesday night, the Democrats chanted "3 H.R.," a reference to Pelosi's bill that passed late last year.Among other provisions, the legislation calls for Medicare to negotiate drug prices.But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has called the bill socialism, and said it will not pass the Republican-controlled upper chamber.The chanting erupted after Trump urged lawmakers to pass bipartisan drug pricing legislation.

He cited a story, " Democrats hit the panic button after internal polling shows stunning public opinion on impeachment," from Glenn Beck's website, TheBlaze.com. "Here is the pull quote. 'He claims that other freshman Democrats agree with him that the agenda of the party does not match the voters'

Panic seized many Democrats last week, as polls showed that the choice of Sarah Palin as running mate had not only energized Republicans but given John McCain a Why the panic ? After all, the latest poll trend could easily be dismissed as merely the typical post-convention “bounce” for the GOP.

Compared with the Democratic divisions of 1968, today’s seem minor. Candidates rarely look impressive—or the party united—at this stage of the contest. In early 1992, the Democratic candidates were widely dismissed as Lilliputians with little chance of defeating President George H.W. Bush, who had brought the Cold War to a successful conclusion and won a smashing victory over Saddam Hussein. In 2008 the often bitter contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama continued into early June, when Mrs. Clinton gave a gracious concession speech and began unifying rank-and-file voters behind Mr. Obama.

This year, opposition to Mr. Trump among Democrats is pervasive and intense, making it likely that the party will close ranks behind its nominee. Sen. Bernie Sanders has already pledged to support the nominee, and there is good reason to believe that he will work hard to persuade his followers. He won’t want to go down in history as a sour-grapes loser who helped re-elect Mr. Trump.

All is well!”, while a panicked mob crushes him as it runs away from a parade gone mad. This is how I feel about this time of year. And at times, the end result is the same, with both of us trampled on the sidewalk The best thing for everyone to do during this time is to remain calm and don ’ t panic .

Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi of New York took his concerns straight to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and explained his rationale to Politico. And their internal polling supports that opinion. Polling for the Democratic Party found that 54 percent of voters said that Democrats were more

The Gallup survey that sent shock waves may have captured a fleeting public mood, or it may prove to have been an outlier. The Real Clear Politics polling average puts the president’s job approval at 45% and shows a smaller increase than Gallup in recent months. The Quinnipiac poll placed his approval at 43%, up only two points since late September. No survey other than Gallup shows such a large rise in Republican party identification, and Gallup concedes that similarly large gains in Democratic identification after the failed Clinton impeachment soon eroded.

A strong economy may be less of an advantage for Mr. Trump than for previous incumbents. Partisanship now shapes perceptions of the economy more than at any other time in decades. Nearly all the increased satisfaction with the economy is attributable to a 60-point rise among Republicans since 2016.

In addition, the political landscape has changed since James Carville’s famous “It’s the economy, stupid” maxim in 1992. Divisions over culture and identity have become more salient across liberal democracies. A good case can be made that Candidate Trump’s pledge to get tough on immigration and build a border wall had a greater effect on the 2016 election than his stance on trade and other economic issues.

Any other president presiding over vigorous job creation and sustained full employment would enjoy robust approval. But Mr. Trump’s job approval lags far behind his rating on the economy. Only 37% of registered voters think he is honest. While about half the electorate approves of his acquittal in the impeachment trial, only 40% believe it cleared him of wrongdoing in the Ukraine matter. Many Americans who give Mr. Trump credit for accomplishments at home and abroad disapprove of his conduct and of the rhetoric that divides the country, even as it arouses his well-tended base. Some of these people could be persuaded to vote against him—if the alternative is attractive.

The voters who will decide the 2020 election yearn for less conflict, for a brand of politics that focuses on solving problems rather than scoring points. If the Democrats offer the country such a choice, they may well prevail over an incumbent president who rarely reaches out to the 54% of voters who didn’t support him in 2016.
