DEMS/ELECTION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Midterm victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin gave Democrats hope of retaking the Rust Belt battleground states that handed the presidency to Donald J. Trump in 2016. Yet success in the midterms might not mean as much for Democratic presidential candidates as the party might think. Nearly two-thirds of voters in six battleground states who voted for President Trump in 2016 — but for Democratic congressional candidates in 2018 — say they intend to back the president against each of his top rivals, according to recent polling by The New York Times Upshot/Siena College. The results suggest that the party’s winning formula in last year’s midterms may not be so easy to replicate in a presidential election. The Democrats’ relatively moderate House candidates succeeded in large part by flipping a crucial segment of voters who backed the president in 2016. If these voters remain open-minded again in 2020, Democrats will have a ready-made blueprint for winning back the crucial Rust Belt battlegrounds.”

ELECTION/LATINOS/POLLS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “It’s like chickens for Colonel Sanders. Why would any self-respecting Latino vote to re-elect President Donald Trump, arguably the most anti-Latino chief executive in U.S. history? That’s what my non-Latino friends want to know. I get that question all the time, often accompanied by a tilted head and a confused look. In the 2020 election, Trump seems likely to get between 25%-30% of the Latino vote. A recent poll by Telemundo found that 1 in 4 American Latinos would vote to re-elect him.  In 2016, according to exit polls, Trump got 28% of the Latino vote. He did better than Sen. Bob Dole, who got 21% of the Latino vote in 1996, and Sen. Mitt Romney, who got 27% in 2012. But he couldn’t match Sen. John McCain, who got 31% of the Latino vote in 2008, or President George W. Bush, who got 40% in 2004. Anything north of 30% is a decent showing for a Republican, and anything beyond 40% will make a GOP candidate virtually unbeatable.”

DEMS/ELECTION/OBAMA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Stirred by fears that Democrats might fail to patch together the broad coalition necessary to defeat Donald Trump next year, the late stages of the Democratic primary have taken an abrupt turn. Suddenly, a contest that has been largely defined by ideology is being re-framed around questions of race and identity. The campaign’s transition to a more overt confrontation of race is no accident. It is purposeful and unfolding, according to aides in a handful of campaigns, as a still large field of contenders grows increasingly desperate to shake up the top tier — and also to carve out lanes that will take them through the early-state gauntlet. The shift crystallized during last week’s debate as Democrats descended on the majority-black city of Atlanta and fanned out afterward in campaign appearances designed to connect with African-American audiences.”

ELECTION/INVESTIGATIONS/LAWSUIT/TRUMP TAXES: “President Donald Trump, facing lawsuits and political demands to release his U.S. tax returns and other financial information, said on Thursday [11-21-19] he will release a statement on his finances before the presidential election, and asserted that it was his call on providing the information…Trump also said Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into Russian interference in elections, which most recently led to the criminal conviction of Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone, showed that his finances were in order. Mueller ‘went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done. This has never happened to President before. What they are doing is not legal,’ Trump wrote.”

DEMS/ELECTION/ENDORSEMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “After fracturing in 2008 and rushing to join a coronation in 2016, the vast majority of Democratic senators are withholding their endorsements in the 2020 presidential race. And many may not endorse for months — or at all. In interviews with a dozen senators on Tuesday [11-19-19] on the eve of one of the last presidential debates before the Iowa caucuses, it was clear that several may make an endorsement next year if they think it can make a critical difference in a tight race. But such a moment is months away — with some senators predicting they may be forced to exert their influence at the party convention next year in Milwaukee. The hesitation by some of the party’s most senior elected officials reflects the unsettled nature of the race, which has seen Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg all with leads in early states over the past month.”

ELECTION/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Sen. Thom Tillis began the Trump era by negotiating with Democrats on immigration and co-authoring legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller. He even briefly opposed President Donald Trump’s national emergency to build a border wall. But now, the North Carolina Republican’s independent streak is fading. He’s deploying the president as a shield against a conservative primary challenger and he’s hugging Trump tightly. Take Trump’s suggestion to investigate Joe Biden in a phone call with the Ukrainian president. Some GOP senators call it inappropriate but not impeachable; other at-risk incumbents have struggled with the query. It’s the central question of the House impeachment inquiry…It’s a shrewd political strategy amid a well-funded primary challenge from Garland Tucker, a conservative businessman who paints Tillis as an enemy of the Trump agenda.”
