In a lively Crosscut Talks, 2020 Visions: Presidential Election Predictions and Projections debate, Professor Christopher Parker lends his views.
A few points made by Prof. Parker:
-- Donald Trump will win re-election unless Democrats get their act together.
-- Democrats need to be more pragmatic and less idealist in order to win. Play the politics game like the Republicans do.
-- Must act like Donald Trump will win in order to get voters motivated to show up on election day. Complacency will hurt the Democrats like it did in the 2016 election where potential voters thought Clinton would win anyway.
