Behind closed doors Senate Democrats are admitting that President Trump will be hard to beat in the 2020 election if the economy remains strong and he uses his incumbency to his advantage.
Democratic lawmakers are rumored to have been anxious about Joe Biden’s downfall and disappointing results in the New Hampshire Primary and Iowa Caucus. They are concerned that with the large Democratic field and President Trump’s largely uncontested nomination Trump will have a head start in voter outreach.
Democrats worry that they have a while until a frontrunner becomes clear and after that, a while before the party unites behind that candidate. Other worries include the fact that Trump’s approval rating did not take a hit despite the attempt to impeach him.
