In an election, as in a trial, the outcome depends less on a weighing up of all the issues and more on which issues the electorate focuses on. Succeed in getting the electorate to focus on the most positive achievement of one's own party, and on the most loathsome feature of the opposition, and coast to victory. Not necessarily in that order, and not necessarily of equal value.
As to President Trump's greatest accomplishment, the economy, economic growth, and the jobs figures lead the pack by a mile.
Loathsomeness - Dems - Stands - Immigration - Place
As to the loathsomeness of the Dems, their increasingly unhinged stands on immigration are equally clearly in first place.
Trump won the nomination and the presidency on the voters' belief that this guy, at last, was someone who meant what he said on immigration. He, and the Republican Party, can hold the House and the Senate if they focus the electorate's attention on the Dems' immigration lunacy, and then, secondarily, on the president's amazing economic results.
Immigration - Dems - Agenda - Smorgasbord - Emetics
On immigration, the Dems' agenda has become a smorgasbord of electoral emetics that only needs to be served up to American voters to produce a collective gag that will be heard round the country.
I think back to Lee Atwater in 1988, who single-handedly turned the Bush campaign around with a masterful TV ad. Magnificent political advocacy, which drew attention away from Bush's deficiencies and redirected it to the odiousness of the Dems.
Brass - Knuckles - Atwater - Beckons - Dems
The same brass knuckles approach Atwater used beckons again, on the Dems' suicidal positions of abolishing ICE; open borders for criminals, terrorists, and drug-dealers; and sanctuary cities. All positions despised by 75% of the electorate.
America's now hard left party is locked into these positions, and they're not just the Dems' "fringe." See the California Dems' executive committee's endorsement of the lunatic Kevin de León over incumbent Dianne Feinstein....
