Rush Goes on Record With Early Talk of 2020 Trump Landslide

Published

Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday on his national syndicated radio program that he would not be surprised if President Donald Trump won in a 40-state landslide in 2020, and he just may be on to something.

In 2016, the New York businessman carried 30 states to Hillary Clinton’s 20, giving him a 306 to 232 Electoral College victory.

Trump flipped six states that had gone for Barack Obama in 2012 —  Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio and Florida — in his upset victory over his Democratic foe.

Limbaugh believes that antics the Democrats and their media partners have engaged in since Trump took office will greatly benefit him in the next election.

“I think that there is, across a vast expanse of this country, I think that there are millions and millions and millions of Americans who are quietly seething, quietly enraged over everything that has gone on here since Trump was inaugurated,” Limbaugh said, according to a transcript on RushLimbaugh.com.

Rush pointed to the investigation of former special counsel Robert Mueller, the ongoing attacks on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the media’s involvement in all of this as sources of building anger among a significant portion of the electorate.

“This stuff doesn’t happen in a vacuum,” Limbaugh said. “People are I think — well, I don’t want to put numbers on it. If Trump won 40 states, I don’t think I’d be surprised.”

“I believe that America is still constituted by a majority of what I call normal people,” he explained. “I think they’re all outraged over this. They’re livid and they’re seething.”

The conservative icon argued the media is oblivious to this sentiment.

“In fact, the media doesn’t even think that exists,” he said. “The media believes — because the media is just Democrats — the media believes that all of America hates Trump like they do.”

“This is one of the most major miscalculations of a public mind-set that may be happening in the course of my having paid attention to things like this, say, in the last 50 years.”

Rush’s 40-state prospect looks like a very tall order, but 37 seems conceivable, if Trump can hold on to all the states carried in 2016 and flip several others.

There are seven states Clinton won by single digits: Maine, New Hampshire,  Minnesota, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Virginia.

Each but the latter two were by very low single digits.

Those 37 states would give Trump 356 Electoral College votes, which looks a lot more like a landslide.

The next closest opportunities would be Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware and Oregon, which were won by Clinton by relatively low double-digits.

Finally, there are nine deep blue states that Trump would seemingly have no chance at flipping: New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Illinois, California, Washington and Hawaii.

Polling would suggest that the president has a tough fight ahead, but he was down in nearly every major poll going into November 2016, and we all know how that turned out.

Nonetheless, a Fox News poll released this week found more people than not — 46 to 40 percent — believe he will be re-elected.

Trump’s job approval numbers are up recently, currently surpassing former President Barack Obama’s at the same point in his first term.

George H.W. Bush was the last presidential candidate to carry off a 40-state victory. That happened in 1988, when he bested liberal Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis.

Rush may be right. Maybe the nation is due for another landslide, especially if the Democrats nominate an ultra-liberal candidate as they appear likely to do.

Trump could then conceivably run the table, and if he does, be prepared for the crocodile tears to fall from many in the establishment media.

    If he also gets 66% of the Senate and 66% of Congress America has a chance to become the super Power it used to be and to clean up our education system voiding it of uneducated Democrat Teachers and teaching children. Also would be nice to brng back morals and prayer.

  • Keith Dobbs says:

    I am one of the deplorables that is totally sick of the antics being done by the liberals and mainstream media! The ideas that they are being floating are so absurd and unbelievable that I do not recognize how anyone can be behind them!! It would be comical if the whole matter was not so damn serious. God bless President Trump and onward to victory in 2020!!

  • Red Devil 5th inf. says:

    The Democrats are just too stupid to realize how much they are helping Trump, and they still won’t give it up and start doing something beneficial for their constants of which only 10% of Democrats are actually for trying to impeach Trump from office, the others are getting pretty tired of it. Rush is absolutely right.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Trump is thinking about what could have been with Hillary. If he had known before the election how she would completely blow the Presidency he never would have been with Stormy Daniels.

  • Jamie says:

    Trump-slide 2020

    • Frenchie says:

  • William says:

    The Leftwing media is a disgusting totally in the bag collection of liars. This is not new but has been lowered to levels not thought to be possible. Historically the media including NBC, CBS, CNN and especially the NYTimes have covered up for the Democrats. Going back to JFK and LBJ, and Clinton they have ignored the numerous indiscretions while attacking Republicans. They should all have their licenses revoked. It is that bad.

  • Backgammon says:

    We can’t just “hope” this, we have to work it. Join a GOP office, get people registered, make phone calls and knock on doors. With all the cheating the Democrats have, we will need more votes than usual. Remember Hillary took her win for granted, we can’t do that.

    • Doris_Speaks says:

      AMEN….backgammon….I’ve always said that we need to do something besides be sidewalk supervisors. Lindsey Graham needs donations, too, as the Dems are really throwing money at South Carolina to get him out.

  • NORMAN says:

    We on the Right are looking for & expecting a Trump tsunami; America is fed up with Democrat hate and bizarre anticS. MAGA!

  • stephen russell says:

    We have CA for $$$ & votes, his comments on Baltimore, etc & shaking up elites anyway so squeeze votes from MD & CA anyway.
    May Help.

  • chrisVN says:

    As long as we don’t get too complacent, all people with any sense at all, need to get out there and VOTE Republican, and don’t waste their votes like they did in 2016 on independents, who will say anything, knowing they could never win!!!!!!

  • Carolyn says:

      “When an opponent declares ‘I will never come to your side,’ I calmly say ‘your child belongs to us already, what are you? You will pass on. Your descendants however, now stand in a new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” Adolph Hitler, Nov, 1933.

  • Joan Williams says:

    I love it, Rush you are the greatest news guy ever

  • Doris_Speaks says:

    I have no doubt that he will. They say the millennials are against him, but i saw a great big bunch of them at his NM Rally.

  • Maria says:

    Good job!

  • New mom says:

    Bring on the crocodile tears

  • SusieQue says:

    We “ALL” know!!! Wait for the Silent Majority to be not so silent…again…

  • Asisay says:

    You totally underestimate democrats and their strategy. Vote harvesting, pardoning criminals so they can vote, and changing laws so illegals can vote. Nothing is too underhanded for them. That’s how they took the House Of Representatives. Like here in NYS, requiring parole officers to register parolees to vote. And, don’t forget, handing out driver licenses to illegals. (Hook) Ahhh, when you get your driver license you can register to vote. (Line) Then you have a foreign influence on an election. (Sinker)
