Michael Bloomberg’s own campaign manager Kevin Sheekey admitted during a speech this week that President Donald Trump is currently on track to win the 2020 election.
Sheekey told an audience that key states including Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, and Arizona are currently supporting President Trump in numbers that will make him hard to beat come the General election.
Kevin Sheekey said,
“That’s the whole general election. And right now Donald Trump is winning, he is winning that election.”
Sheekey continued, “It’s very tough for people who don’t live in New York or California to understand that, but that is what’s happening. Mike is getting in this race because he thinks that Donald Trump is an existential crisis and he thinks he’s on a path to victory and he’s getting in to alter that dynamic.”
Bloomberg has failed to garner much support so far.
President Donald Trump saw an uptick in support amongst independents in the key swing states following the impeachment hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives last week.
Despite some Democrats in leadership insisting that they will push forward with impeachment, others in swing states and swing districts have begun to separate themselves from it.
For instance, Michigan Democratic Rep. Brenda Lawrence separated herself from impeachment on Sunday morning, stating:
“We are so close to an election,” Lawrence said Sunday on a Michigan radio program, “I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of taking him out of office. But I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable. It’s in violation of the oath of office of a president of the United States, and we have to be clear that you cannot use your power of the presidency to withhold funds to get a foreign country to investigate an American citizen for your own personal gain. There’s no way around that.”
A highly partisan impeachment is likely to fail in the Republican-controlled Senate.
