Americans have proven one thing over the years - the economy is a bipartisan issue, possibly the only one we have left.
Over the years the American voter has shown an absolute willingness to cross party lines and vote with their wallets.
And that is about the only thing that people will cross the political divide for these days. Look at Reagan and Clinton - both saw huge swings in the electorate.
Voters swung to Obama and the Dems after Wall Street crashed the economy and likewise the rust belt, who did not enjoy the improving economy as much as others, put the GOP in power again in 2016.
This stuff is not new and is the only constant in American politics. Which is why Sebastian Gorka’s full list of Trump’s accomplishments spells doom for the Democrats in 2020.
