GA Dems Leader Right to See Golden Opportunity

Georgia Democratic Party chair Nikema Williams is right to say we’re the battleground, and not just because we’re electing 1/50th of the Senate.

Getting lost as Republicans begin their coronation process is there may be little, if any, advantage to being a Republican in Georgia next year.

Charlie semi-alluded to it that, yes, both parties are going to nationalize the as no politics are local any more.

With Trump, that’s going to be bad news. The President lost 16 points from his favorability to a whopping +2 in Georgia. Or using a more traditional analysis is: he’s at 49% approve to 48% disapprove. Those are some pretty stiff headwinds and, let’s be honest, does anyone genuinely expect President Trump to temper any of his poor qualities? In other words: do you really see anything that will cause his stock to rise?

There’s going to be absolute chaos with the electoral process and a presidential albatross so two of three for Democrats is entirely realistic. A clean sweep? Senator Perdue isn’t cracking 50% approval and if there’s any daylight between him and President Trump you’d be hard pressed to find it.

Perhaps the most compelling question out of all this is: if Democrats can’t get either Georgia to turn blue or pick up a Senate seat next year….when’s it gonna be?

Does anyone else get angry when they see the name Nikema Williams? Having her as State Party chair may prove to be a mistake.

I’m just not very optimistic Ed. The numbers just aren’t there when 95% of Republicans in a 55% Republican state either embrace or accept a criminal that is effectively a traitor. I don’t see Kemp appointing a Roy Moore, though a weakening economy could cause some people to stay at home.

The scary thing is the claim the election was rigged if Trump loses—-count on it since that claim has been and is being made when he won—and what some Trump supporters will in response.
