Democrats’ nightmare: Trump so confident he’s already campaigning to their base

How’s this for confidence in 2020?

President Trump’s job performance is so strong he’s almost not even worrying about shoring up his own political base in the coming presidential election. He’s focusing his campaign resources on black, Hispanic, and women voters, the old-line stalwarts of the Democratic Party’s political base, because the base is in the bag. This is the equivalent of Sherman taking the march to Atlanta and heading to “the sea.”

Here’s what Axios is reporting. (Caution – the reportage is more biased than most, so I put in some annotations):

Trump campaign officials have been discussing a digital campaign to boost President Trump’s 2020 support among three key demographic groups: African Americans, Hispanics and suburban women, two sources familiar with the plan tell Axios.

Why it matters: These are the groups the president must make inroads with the most. Trump won in 2016 with less support from black and Hispanic voters than any president in at least 40 years, per Reuters. [Nonsense. These links are more recent, thorough, and accurate.]  And in 2018, suburban women revolted against Republicans in the midterms [More nonsense: Ever heard of ballot-harvesting?], a shift that was widely seen as a direct rebuke of Trump.
