Michael Moore has the key for the ways Democrats can keep winning in 2020

Published

on

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore laid out a bold strategy for Democrats to continue the record-breaking turnout seen during the 2018 midterm elections.

Moore joined guest-host Ali Velshi on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” to discuss the record turnout in the midterm elections.

In 2018, more voters showed up than in any midterm, topping 1974 — the first midterm election after 26th Amendment to the United States Constitution lowered the voting age to 18.

“Here’s the lesson I learned in Michigan, is that ballot proposals are the answer,” Moore explained. “George W. Bush and Republicans knew this in 2004 — they put 14 ballot measures in 14 states to outlaw gay marriage, to make it illegal.”

“That motivated people to the polls that might not have otherwise gone,” Velshi noted.

“We need for 2020 to have ballot proposals for legalizing marijuana, free college, equal rights for women, and outlaw gerrymandering,” Moore counseled.

Published

The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.

Trump’s racist attacks on Dem lawmakers are a test run in case he faces Kamala Harris in 2020: MSNBC contributor

Published

on

Speaking with host Alex Witt on Sunday afternoon, an MSNBC contributor speculated that Donald Trump's racist attack on four female Democrats -- none of whom are white -- was a test run to see how far he can go attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) should she be his opponent in the 2020 general election.

According to Democratic strategist Don Calloway, Trump may not have a grand strategy, but he's in "campaign mode" which brings out his barely concealed inner-racist.

"I'm not one to ascribe a strategy to the president when it's clear he's not a deep thinker, but he is, however, in campaign mode," he explained. "I see this as a good campaign device for him to gin up his base, fueled by the xenophobia and race-based hatred."
