Election 2020: The Default Effect Versus the Defection Vote
These are the qualities of the Defection Vote versus the Default Effect. This divides the voters into two categories asking them two questions: do all voters like Trump, do all voters like the job he is doing, or can the Democratic candidate establish a platform that welcomes fleeing Trump voters by rejecting the gun control dialogue, and global warming agendas, while exploiting the hugely bad mistakes which will have consumers on his side by 2019's end, already?
The Defection Vote is when established R or D voters cross party lines to vote for another party due to their party's candidate's dislikeability. This is how both Trump, and Doug Jones were elected by both party agendas in their opponents being out of touch with their base, as well as their opponents' respective dislikeability.
The Default Vote, for statisticians like Nate Silver of 538, will be the vote that, statistically, they have to recognize as having a great likelihood of keeping Trump in the office.
The Default Vote, or the Default Effect, is when a voter reasons that, "changing the party and person in the office will cause either as many problems, or possibly more problems than we have now: so we may as well re-elect the current candidate."
The thing about the coming election, is that Defection Vote against Trump seems more likely to affect the electorate than the Default Effect.
Here is a short list of why the Default Vote will not be a sure thing:
- It's the economy, stupid.
In the election of 1992, we had our last one term president. It was Ronald Reagan's VP, George Bush, Sr.
Bill Clinton, who opposed him, used the catch phrase, "It's the economy, stupid", to great effect.
And, it was a genius move. Legend says that James Caravelle, Clinton's chief advisor and campaign manager, had coined the phrase to express the alienation of 12 years of overspending on the Cold War which both the Reagan, and the Bush White Houses had formatted as recipe for Cold War victory.
Unfortunately, this resulted in recessions that could ultimately no longer be hidden by the time of the 1988 "Black Monday" junk bond led New York Stock Exchange crash.
That crash caused Dukakis voters to feel certain of his victory. But, love for Reagan held the base together, and it was the R base's belief that this was Reagan's third term, and not Bush's first term, that elected Bush in the Election of 1988.
[If you have a few minutes, watch this video where NBC's Chuck Todd indentifies where, "it all went wrong for Dukakis..."]
Acc to 538, "Whomever wins the first debate, wins the election." Trump didn't lose that debate in spite of a vociferous insistence by 538 and the mainstream media. Again, phone polls show how unreliable they are, and this is proof that we can only trust Gallup, who predicted Trump had greater than a 10% chance of becoming president.
In 1992, an executive office either unaware of the ramifications of the overspending, or worse, apathetic of the causes of the recessions, coupled with the huge numbers of broke Americans, all combined to present an easy target for Democratic strategists, who identified the huge numbers of homeless Americans, unemployed Americans, and impoverished Americans as valuable voters.
Bush seemed indifferent to the ramifications of his and Reagan's Cold War economic logic, and the victims created by their logic.
Trump is worse than that. He has no idea what he is doing, nor how long these sanctions will affect the US economy. Nobody does because most folks in office have some idea what "to protect, and defend the Constitution..." actually means. Trump hasn't a clue about Macroeconomics. And, he will create a landslide against him by 2019.
All indications are that the economy of the United States is about to experience major collapse, in the form of unprecedented interest rates freezing retirement accounts, and driving housing through the roof, as well as consumer goods inflating in cost, and an unprecedented rise in gasoline per gallon.The Defection Vote working for the Democrat Party is almost a shoe-in.
While the Defection Vote contributed a host of itemized reasons that made party loyalty appear to be all-important as far as Election:2016 goes, the fact is, both the elections of 2008 and 2012 saw the Defection Vote elect Democrats from disaffected Republican voters tired of corruption, tired of being lied to, and purely angry with the ReBush regime, and then not confident in the Romney platform.
- Party Loyalties Are Overstated
When, at the Republican Primary in 2008, candidate McCain declared Bush a national hero, and claimed that, "His direction would be one we follow." what he did was send a very large portion of R voters into Obama's camp. However, if Trump's opponent doesn't criticize each twenty first century president's secret wars in the Middle East, regardless of party, a satisfactory zone of political identity shall not be engaged for a Defection Vote against Trump.
This is where the contradictions within his base shall need to be exploited a bit more thoroughly, including the Evangelical Christian vote accepting Trump's murder of Syrian Christians, and Trump's wrecking of the Two State Solution, both could be exploited by Christ's rejection of Judaism, as well as the human crisis at play in Gaza, as well as Palestine, in general.
Also, the fact that all R voters are not pleased with the JCPOA exit, and that any campaigning making this an issue could draw on Republicans who praised JCPOA in 2015, this could result in the ousting of Trump by a R base that is tired of their government lying to them about their secret wars, and their predilections towards Unconstitutional habits, in general.
Any D campaign should pay for real R voters' feelings about the JCPOA exit, and the secret wars engaged to defend Israel, as well as the fact that the UN Article 80 declares a Two State Solution to which this nation has already been bound by vote.
The Default Effect Has One Ridout:
- The Economy Will Not Reset the Default Vote, Trump's White House Is Extremely Vulnerable to Economic Factors.
- The Economic State of America Will Most Likely Elect A Democrat in 2020.
- The Defection Vote Also Tends To Look Favorably For the Democrats.
- They Will Need to Exploit The Evangelical Christian Base's Ignorance of Syrian Christians Killed By Trump's Orders.
- This Is A Democrat Shoe In For 2020.
- Trump Could Engage Default Effect Via War, But It Isn't An Infallible Strategy.
