Conservative columnist Max Boot warned President Donald Trump and the rest of the right-wing that they should probably be aware that their culture war could backfire for the 2020 election.
“This whole base strategy is a long pedigree going back at least to Karl Rove and the 2004 election campaign where he decided there was no need to enlarge the base of bush support,” Boot said.
The reference is to the crusade former President George W. Bush waged to outlaw LGBTQ equality. With a group of same-sex marriage bans across the country, Bush’s campaign mobilized 10 million evangelicals Christians to ensure those bills passed and supported Bush along with it.
“All you had to do was mobilize existing Bush supporters and that’s essentially what Trump did in 2016,” Boot said. “I think there’s reason to think that may not continue to work because with this move on abortion, for example, there’s a real risk the president’s supporters are going to mobilize all these women across the country to March in favor of abortion rights.”
The pro-women movement could easily place initiatives on the ballot in key swing states that are a blanket “get government out of my personal life” law and mobilize millions of Americans that way.

Trump is trying to ‘monetize defeat’ by bilking fans for a personal ‘slush fund’: Ex-GOP lawmaker
Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) on Monday said that President Donald Trump likely knows he lost the 2020 presidential election but is taking one more opportunity to bilk his supporters for cash before leaving on January 20th.
Appearing on CNN, Dent argued that the president is already angling for a new grift after leaving the White House, and he's getting an early start on it by asking fans to donate to his legal defense fund.
‘The president’s legal strategy is in tatters’ and the GOP knows Trump’s coup is failing: NYT reporter
President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election are getting crushed in courts -- and more members of his own party are finally saying publicly that it's time for the president to give up his long-shot bid to remain in power.
New York Times reporter Alex Burns told CNN on Monday many Republicans can see the writing on the wall but are still working up the courage to nudge the president out the door.
Lara Trump buried by CNN host for claiming Trump voters don’t ‘feel’ like he lost
Lara Trump appeared on Fox News to further the Trump campaign agenda that the 45th president of the United States, her father-in-law, won the election.
"There are about 74 million people out there who do not feel like the result of this election that has been presented is accurate," she told Fox News host Leland Vittert.
In a recap segment on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday afternoon, chief media correspondent Brian Stelter responded, "Lara Trump is wrong, by the way, to say that every Trump voter feels that this thing was rigged." Speaking of feelings, he added, "Facts do not care about your feelings ... This conspiracy crap is just like Trump's anti-media enemy of the people smear. It's a slow-acting poison that is crippling the American [body of] politics."
