If Trump wins re-election, it will be because he is running a smarter campaign, raising more money, and reaching more voters than Democrats.

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” — Sun Tzu, the Art of War

Quick question: Who is currently utilizing all the winning strategies used by the previous two U.S. Presidents to win re-election- George W. Bush and Barack Obama- to forge a path to the White House in 2020?

Answer: Donald Trump

If Democrats don’t like that answer, and many Democrats won’t, they should look to their party leadership and demand accountability.

Because if Trump wins reelection, it won’t be because of Russian interference. It won’t be because of Ukrainian interference.

If Trump wins re-election it will be because Democrats have squandered every opportunity they’ve had yet to beat him.

If Trump wins, which is looking increasingly likely by the day, good old fashioned smart campaigning combined with cutting-edge technology will be behind it.

Democrats should look long and hard: The Trump campaign is winning. And it isn’t doing anything that Democrats can’t or shouldn’t be doing.

Donald Trump has used his campaign cash well; organizing voters, donors and volunteers using the most state-of-the-art tools, apps and technology available.

Democrats- in spite of Michael Bloomberg’s recent blitz of television ad buys and a $73 million dollar donation by wealthy Democratic donors to help ‘close the gap’- are light-years behind.

“Democrats are so far behind at a state-level organization, they’ll never catch up this election…even with all the outside money pouring in. You can’t build a two-million-person-strong volunteer base that’s well-versed on the apps and the technology and do the door-knocking in a month.”

“If you’re not in the states now, grooming those volunteers and engaging them and training them, it doesn’t just happen.”— Republican National Committee chair, Ronna McDaniel
