Fox News host Tucker Carlson issued a stern warning to President Donald Trump advisers and supporters who believe he has his 2020 presidential re-election campaign in the bag.
“A year from today, we’ll be hosting this show from the National Mall as the next president of the United States takes the oath of office,” Carlson said to start the opening monologue of his titular prime time program on Monday.
“Will that president be Donald Trump? As of tonight, Republicans in Washington feel confident it will be,” he added.
Carlson believes that Trump’s chances of victory depend entirely upon how he conducts his presidential re-election campaign.
“The official economic numbers are strong. The Democratic primaries are a freak show – elderly socialists accusing each other of thoughtcrimes. Republicans are starting to think victory is assured. That’s a mistake,” he continued. “America remains as divided as it was three years ago. No matter what happens, nobody’s going to win this election in a national landslide. Those don’t happen anymore. Trump could lose. Will he? That depends on what he runs on.”
President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale has noted that Trump will be running his re-election campaign based on the strong national economy, not immigration or cultural issues:

Lou: "You didn't mention border security, you didn't mention immigration."
Parscale: "Well I think on immigration he's already in the winning column."

Carlson believes that this is the recipe for snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, considering negative public opinion regarding structural economic issues. He points to student loan debt as a massive problem that Republicans simply offer no solutions for, and this could open the door for socialist Bernie Sanders to steal independent voters from Trump.
“Bernie Sanders may get the Democratic nomination,” Carlson said. “If he does, every Republican in Washington will spend the next 10 months reminding you that socialism doesn’t work, and never has. They’ll be right, obviously,” Carlson explained.
“But if Sanders pledges to forgive student loans, he’ll still win many thousands of voters who went for Donald Trump last time. Debt is crushing an entire generation of Americans. Republicans need a plan to make it better, or they’ll be left behind,” he added.
Carlson notes that the public will consider the false promises of socialism if Republicans fail to offer solutions to the problems plaguing millions of Americans.
“They’re conservative in the most basic sense: They love their families above all,” the host explained. “They distrust radical theories of anything because they know that when the world turns upside down, ordinary people get hurt. They don’t want to burn it down. They just want things to get better. The candidate who promises to make them better – incrementally, but tangibly – will be inaugurated president a year from today.”
The entire rant can be seen here:
Right now, the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Sanders beating Trump by a narrow 48-45 margin. Sanders is surging in the Democratic polls, even pulling ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden, and may be considered the front-runner to take the nomination for the Democrats.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
