Damon Linker is no conservative. But he sent liberals into a tailspin with his article: “Trump is toxically unpopular. He still might win in 2020.”
How would a Trump re-election campaign accomplish this?
We won’t be able to answer that question with great precision until we see which Democrat ends up running against him. But we can answer in general: The Trump campaign (and the RNC, and Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and the rest of the right-wing media complex) will work to convince Republican-leaning voters that however much they dislike (or have ambivalent feelings about) Donald Trump, they should hate and fear his opponent far more. “Come home, Republicans!” will be the message. “Yes, it’s been a messy four years, but at least Trump isn’t one of them!”
