Who’s left? A mix of true Trump enthusiasts & members who know speaking out against the POTUS in public amounts to a political death sentence in their next primary. The reality: this vicious cycle means there isn’t any going back and likely no such thing as too far. — PolitiTweet.org

Where are the congressional Rs who would speak out to hold POTUS accountable for his comments? They’ve lost to Dems, retired or been driven out of the party. Gone. — PolitiTweet.org

So generally, it doesn't matter how great a challenger or how awful an incumbent is running in a place that's hugely lopsided (unless we're talking Roy Moore-level pedophile-type baggage). Voters are going to vote against whichever party they view as their enemy. — PolitiTweet.org

Sometimes people forget how narrow a "trading range" of competitive elections exists today. Only one Dem, Collin Peterson, represents a seat where Trump took more than 55% (Trump took 61% in #MN07), and he only held on w/ 52% against a nobody in a terrific Dem year. — PolitiTweet.org

Fact: in 2018, no Republican won a House seat where Trump took less than 45% of the vote, and no Democrat flipped a House seat where Trump took more than 55% of the vote. We live in an era of extremely high straight-ticket voting & polarization. — PolitiTweet.org

Of the 20 new House Ds who replaced other Ds in '18, 14 joined Progressive Caucus (incl. AOC/Tlaib/Omar/Pressley) & 9 are New Dems/Blue Dogs (a few are both). But of the 42 new Ds who flipped R seats - i.e. the majority makers - 33 are New Dems/Blue Dogs, just 8 Progressives. — PolitiTweet.org

But you know what *is* winnable for Dems in 2020 w/ the right kind of candidate - especially a woman w/ an appealing personal story and zero ties to an unpopular Congress? A country that voted for Clinton by 2.1%. — PolitiTweet.org

Folks, there is just no amount of $$$ that is going to elect a Dem to federal office next fall in in a place that voted for Trump by 30%.* *except maybe Collin Peterson in #MN07 but that’s about it — PolitiTweet.org

Nationally, Dem voters/donors love McGrath’s profile (and those of many other ‘18 women whose personal stories dwarf those of the ‘20 prez candidates). Kentucky voters as a whole...not so much. — PolitiTweet.org

Reality check: Amy McGrath ran for House in 2018 (a terrific Dem year) and lost by 3% in #KY06, which went for Trump by 15% in 2016. Now she’s running w/ basically the same message in a state that went for Trump by *30%.* Folks... — PolitiTweet.org
