The 2020 battleground is beginning to take shape.
Donald Trump’s chances at re-election are beginning to come into focus.
And now this top Democrat made a jaw dropping 2020 confession.
Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson is a life-long Democrat.
But Johnson is also a successful businessman and is able to recognize reality.
And in an interview on CNBC, Johnson stated no Democrat running for President can beat Donald Trump.
Johnson also praised the Trump economic boom and handed the President credit for the record low black unemployment.
The Washington Post reports:
“If you take a snapshot today, I don’t think that group is capable of beating Donald Trump, despite what the polls say,” Johnson told CNBC in an interview.
“I think the president has always been in a position where it’s his to lose.”
Despite his politics, Johnson has praised the Trump economy, particularly a rise in African American employment, though it remains lower than white employment rates.
And he has sided with many conservatives, including Trump, in saying Democratic politicians have moved too far left.
Recent polls have shown Donald Trump’s approval rating with black voters is 34 percent.
Democrats and fake news pundits were shocked by those numbers because of the Democrat Party hammerlock on the black vote.
But any increase in black support for the President means Donald Trump wins in a landslide.
Johnson could have recognized the fact that the booking economy provides the President an opening to make his case to voters that usually vote Democrat and pry loose segments of normally-reliable Democrat constituencies.
