A new report indicates that Democrats are worried about the growing strength of President Trump.
According to The Hill:
Senate Democrats are privately acknowledging that President Trump will be very tough to beat in November if the economy stays strong and he draws on the substantial advantages of running as an incumbent.
Publicly, Democratic lawmakers are putting on a brave face, but behind closed doors anxiety is mounting over the unraveling of former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid and the failure of impeachment to put a dent in Trump’s approval ratings.
One of the chief concerns is that Trump, who has a virtually uncontested path to the Republican nomination, will have a big head start to prepare for the general election.
His reelection campaign is already spending heavily to reach out to voters on Facebook, and the Republican Party is solidly unified behind him.
The Democrats are particularly concerned with the party being divided until late 2020 and then having to deal with the resentment of the supporters of the candidate who didn’t win as Sanders supporters had in 2016.
