Trump says he’ll win because he’s pro 2nd Amend and pro life.  Is that enough?

    Interesting thought. He switched to "Pro-Life" just a month before announcing his candidacy. A couple of years earlier he offered to pay for an abortion for a mistress.

    Hard to say when he chose pro-guns. Lived and grew up in New York City with toughest gun laws in the country. Plays golf; not shooting or hunting. His gun control views shifted over time, and he embraced 2nd Amendment to be in line with Republicans.

    https://people.com/politics/trump-views-gun-contro...

    About 70% of the USA supports more gun control including just over half of Republicans, but supporters of 2nd Amendment are very vocal and he loves the cheering.

    So far, Trump has not had a composite favorability rating even at 50%. Always less than that, and only in his first week did favorable tick over unfavorable for a few days.

    Polling shows Not Trump well ahead of Trump.

    So far, Pro guns and Anti-Abortion hasn't worked in polling.

    Which Blue states in this picture does he think he'll turn red?

    Swing state map

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/pres...

    Top 20 for guns:

    1. Arizona, 2. Idaho, 3. Alaska, 4. Kansas, 5. Oklahoma, 6. Kentucky, 7. Utah, 8. Wyoming, 9. Montana, 10. Texas, 11. Georgia, 12. Missouri, 13. Tennessee, 14. North Dakota, 15. West Virginia, 16. Mississippi, 17. New Hampshire, 18. Alabama, 19. Arkansas, 20. Indiana

    Swing States, so 4 could have influence:

    1 Arizona, 10 Texas, 11 Georgia, 12 Missouri 

     Abortion seems to match pretty close to his support levels already

    He wins who he already has in his corner. What states consider these things important enough to override the dislike people have for Trump?

    Mostly, non-issue.

    He lies..........

    He'll win because more than half of the country will vote for him. We're all tired of the lies from the left and the biased media.

    Trump will win because he is Pro-America. That is something liberals have difficulty saying due to all the identity politics they have going on in the Democratic Party.

    Didn’t seem to help Mitt Romney and John McCain much.

    Trump will say anything, but you’re gonna see the real trump if he’s re-elected

    Source(s): He flip flops so hard for now, but what happens when he no longer has to worry about being re-elected

    What's say we propose a law that bans all guns that can be used to kill unborn fetuses and send Trump and all his Trumpturds into a quagmire?

    It should be. But Trump certainly has more than that to run on.

    So was Mitt Romney.  So was John McCain.  So was Bob Dole.  So was George H.W. Bush.  There's your answer.

    Democrats/RINOs oppose the American constitution, those are just TWO examples. Trump can name a dozen or so MORE examples.
