1. Democrats Shouldn't Be Afraid to Run an Anti-Trump Campaign in 2020

NOV. 14, 2018
By Eric Levitz

... Trump’s “core base of supporters” might “delight in him taking on fights” — but then, they’d probably delight in him yanking out their teeth to pocket the gold fillings. Few outside the president’s base find his cantankerous tweets compelling — and his base, by itself, isn’t anywhere near big enough to keep him in the White House ...

Conventional wisdom, pre-2016, held that an effective way to destroy a politician was to paint him or her as corrupt and scandal-plagued. In fact, this line of attack was considered so powerful, the GOP would often fabricate scandals with which to taint their opponents. And nothing that happened in 2016 contradicted the idea that associating one’s rival with corruption and scandal is an effective political tactic: Through relentless, negative messaging, the GOP convinced a majority of the public that Hillary Clinton’s use of private email server — and (fictional) role in abetting “Benghazi” — reflected the candidate’s personal dishonesty and corruption. Meanwhile, Clinton’s attacks on Trump helped render the GOP nominee the most unpopular major party candidate in the history of opinion polling by November 8, 2016.

... Trump has provided his opponents with a cornucopia of first-rate corruption scandals, which the Democratic House majority will spend the next two years exposing and promoting. There is little basis for believing that the 2020 Democratic nominee should strive to “ignore” this material — and forgo full-throated attacks on the incumbent president — so as to prevent Trump’s unhinged counterattacks from dominating cable news coverage ...

2. Economy Did Not Help Republicans In Midterms

Teresa Ghilarducci

... Across party lines workers are worried -- three-fourths of Americans are concerned economic conditions will affect their ability to achieve a secure retirement. For self-identified Democrats, the level of concern was at 78% compared to 76 % for Republicans. And financial concerns about retirement edge out having enough money for a medical emergency as the top financial worry among workers.

And women’s worries also may have come out in the vote. Women, compared to men, are most at risk of having inadequate retirement income —women have lower pensions and live longer on average. And women have moved away from Republicans as the midterm results confirmed. Pre-election polls showed that women scored 22 % lower than men when asked if the economy was excellent or good ...

The economy also didn’t help the Republicans because their stewardship is suspect. The tax cut was widely (and correctly) viewed as helping corporations and the wealthy to the detriment of middle-class households. Republicans discovered this voter reaction early and adjusted their strategy accordingly. In February, ads from one Republican superPAC mentioned the tax cut over 72 percent of the time; by September, that was down to 17 percent ...

4. The only way to lose 2020 is to nominate someone

Less popular than him and only one name comes to mind in that regard so hopefully that doesn't happen.
