President Trump, Howard Schultz, Donald Trump discussed on The Drive Home with Jillian Barberie and John Phillips

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Going to be supportive of a move towards socialism? Not very many, President Trump will get reelected. Okay. So that that is a statement that scares the death out of the left which wants to embrace his I say this full-scale hardcore fire left positioning and shelters reminding them guys just 'cause you don't like Trump doesn't mean that everybody is going to resonate to your cost. The left is going nuts over this because they want to provide the stark dichotomy they want you to have to choose between, President Trump and socialism, and they hope that if you hate President Trump enough, you'll resonates socialism. And suddenly Hersholt saying you don't have to choose Trump, and you don't have to choose socialism. It sounds pretty good to a lot of Americans. I know that a lot of Trump supporters who listen to the show, but understand his popularity ratings are not all that high. Right. There are a lot of folks or not gonna vote for President Trump in the next election cycle, the possibility that Scholtz carves into that vote by saying I don't like Trump and also I'm not a crazy person not an insignificant possibility. Listen to the panic from the media over this. I mean, let's let's face this. How bad are the Democrats Howard Schultz is a threat to them. This guy is utterly charisma-free. He is his dull as as. Dishwater? I mean, he really is. You watch them speaking. You're like, wow. This really, okay. I guess nobody's looking at Howard Johnson. Going captures my imagination. All he is is a return to normalcy. He feels like Warren g Harding in nineteen twenty. That was the Warren g Harding campaign slogan in nineteen twenty after the insanity of the Woodrow Wilson administration was returned to normalcy. Howard Schultz should make that his slogan, honestly, because he feels like returned to normalcy for a lot of folks. And this is scaring, the death out of Democrats and the media really want the AFC wing of the Democratic Party to be ascended. The Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party. So listen to MSNBC's Nicole Wallace freaking out just losing her mind on Steve Schmidt whose an advisor to Howard Schultz, people are terrified and people are terrified that you one of the most visible Trump critics are now behind someone that they feel I could take away the Democrats best chance of toppling Donald Trump voting. The election is to steered. Okay. Everybody's wasn't her. She's so scared. She says here's the solution. Don't be crazy. You had one job Democrats won. And. Yes, suck at it. Jon Favreau, who is on the Obama team. He says it's just a it's an awful thing. That was going to ruin the world ruin the world, the pod broS explaining why Howard Schultz is the scariest person in the world these people interest. Mike Bloomberg on very different ends of the spectrum are both thinking. Yeah, we could both run in the democratic primary, and we'll just see if anyone likes ideas Howard Schultz thinks that he doesn't have to do that that he gets to just run on his own as an independent and do it that way. Even if it means hurting, the democratic candidate, helping Trump, and that's that's just a awful thing to do. It is. I mean, people should be restricted to running inside the Democratic Party where we the pod can permit whether they ought to even receive the votes of the general public. I love the people who suggest that Donald Trump is a force against democracy are suggesting that third party candidates should now be banned. Now, let's be real about this a third party candidate is not a guarantee that Trump wins reelection. It's not even. Guarantee that all of the votes for Howard Schultz, come from the Democratic Party. It is quite possible that he draws a bunch of suburban Republicans who would normally vote for from. And now they see Schultz as some sort of moderate shorts is relying on apparently some interior polling data is what Josh crash our over at national journal tweeting yesterday. He says shorts commissioned several ballot tests over the past few months and found that centrist indie holes between and five low too low thirties between twenty five and low thirties. President Trump consistently at twenty nine to thirty percents. Elizabeth Warren between twenty six and thirty percents. In other words, the votes splits. Exactly three ways with Warren on the ballot. It founded about twenty four percents of Democrats defected to the generic centrist independence alternative and twenty percents of Trump. Republicans polling found that Trump's support was strong with Republicans around seventy percents. Now, let's be real about this generic centrist Indian would lead to a higher percentage than if any other candidate were named Shultz is not going to draw all of that centrist in the option cared about forty percents of independence on average in the surveys. That is conducted in reality. This probably this probably, you know, he probably wins ten to fifteen percent of the vote. But there's no guarantee that ten percent to fifteen percent of the vote comes universally from folks on the left. It is quite possible. That folks in the Republican party see somebody like Scholtz has returned to normalcy. Also, which is. Presumably why President Trump was was ripping on on Schultz the other day coming up. I wanna talk a little bit about changing demographics in the United States. Democrats think this means they will never lose another election. Republicans are worried the changing demographics mean they will never win another election..
