Is 'Defund the Police' a major political mistake for Democrats?

Next week’s US elections 2020: A moment of “panic” for Republicans in the Senate

5. 48- Nest Days to Choose a Vice President:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would like to choose his election colleague by August 1 – not so long now!

(Here is my last look at the 10 women most likely to finish Biden’s selection).

Biden himself retreated somewhat from his previous back in an armchair to whoever was under consideration and who was not.

While he continues to praise occasionally for the more mentioned candidates – and his campaign has brought virtual fundraising with politicians like New Mexico Governor Michelle Logan Grisham – the former vice president tends to resist many political handicaps these days.

Which means that things get more dangerous.

4. How do Democrats dance to “defend the police”?

What Democrats in Congress want to spend this week talking about is the body of legislation they introduced last week that aims to reform the police – from banning bottlenecks to building a national database of police misconduct.

What they may have to deal with – for the second straight week – constant calls from some Black Lives Matter activists to fully compensate the police and reallocate that money to support marginalized communities.
It is a very charged situation, politically. An ABC News-Ipsos Survey His release on Friday showed that two-thirds of Americans oppose canceling police funding. But nearly 6 out of 10 (57%) of black Americans support such a measure – and reallocate that money to more community programs.
In a bid to overcome the debate over “defending the police,” this majority in the House of Representatives, Sweep Jim Clayborn, the highest-ranking African-American official in Congress, said this on CNN on Sunday:

“Nobody will cancel the funding of the police. We can restructure the police force. Restructure and re-imagine the police. This is what we will do. The fact of the matter is that the police have a role to play.”

Politically, it is the right place. Many people support law enforcement reform. Far fewer than fully funded.

The question for Democrats in Congress is whether Claireborn’s declared position on Sunday is sufficient for the more active wing of their party.

3. Trump and the slope:

On Saturday, President Donald Trump made the start speech at West Point. And while he was leaving the platform, The cameras caught him walking carefully on a cliff on the ground.

Twitter went to bananas, indicating that Trump looked old and weak. Of course, this is what Twitter does.

But then Trump decided to dramatically inflate the picture of the moment – and make sure it became a much larger story.

“The slope from which I got off after my speech that I started on West Point was very long and sharp, and it had no handrails, and most importantly, it was very slippery.” Trump tweeted on Saturday night. “The last thing I would do was” fall “for fun in the fake news. The last ten feet ran to the ground. Momentum!”

It’s hard to overestimate the misjudgment here by Trump. Without a tweet, his video on the ramp may be a little story Sunday. With the Tweet, it’s a great story on Sunday, with the possibility of dropping into a week in which the president wants to focus on restarting his re-election campaign.

So, why did he do that? Because he simply is unable to be portrayed publicly as weak or anything less than the whole thing at all times. So, even if he inflates the criticism, Trump feels as though he must respond. (Read this on Trump’s Twisted Definition of Power.)

It is a disastrous political instinct.

2. Resuming the Trump campaign:

The past few weeks have been disastrous for Trump and his party. (see below). The President hopes this will be the week when everything changes, with everything pointing to Saturday’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

While this has already spoiled (The gathering was originally scheduled on Friday June 19, known as Juneteenth, a day celebrating the end of slavery) Trump and his closest allies see a return to the campaign trail as perhaps something that could heal what is going on in the president’s political fortunes.

Trump, the hype man, He said on Twitter Friday “We have already received orders for over 200,000 people. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Oklahoma!”
There is no doubt that Trump is fueled by crowd energy, and that there will be a lot of attendees on Saturday night. (No, there will not be 200,000 people. The square where the event takes place can accommodate Just over 19,000.)

But as coronaviruses escalate – in the west and southwest in particular – news coverage for the week is likely to focus, at least in part, on Trump’s wisdom to hold a major march ever.

Those present are already required to sign a waiver stating that contracting Covid 19 in the rally is a possibility. Tulsa Health Director said on Saturday Hopes Trump will delay the rally Out of concern, “our ability to protect anyone attending a major internal event.”

However, there are no current plans to impose social distance on the march or to wear a delegate mask.

So, yes, Trump is likely to get what he wants – a large crowd celebrates “the country’s transition to greatness.” But at what cost?

1. Press the panic button:

Late on Saturday evening, Des Moines released a poll about the Iowa race in the Senate. It was shocking.

Democrat Teresa Greenfield ranked 46% in the poll compared to 43% for Republican Senator Iowa Senator Johnny Earnest. As an explorer, Ji Ann Selzer Pointed out, Was the first vote Since Ernst was nominated and won in 2014, this has been demonstrated by her opponent’s plus in the general election.
While these numbers do not indicate that Ernst will lose – Republicans have begun to lose ground Attack / Definition Greenfield yet Her primary win earlier this month They have already made it clear that the race that appeared on the sidelines of the competition now looks like a very real competition.

This is the case for Republicans in the Senate who hope to keep their narrow majority this fall.

why? Because there are so many seats that people with disabilities see at least as vulnerable as Iowa.

The Cook’s Political ReportIowa, for example, is categorized as “leaning toward the Republican” alongside both Georgia, Kansas and Montana seats. It also occupies four additional seats for the Republican Party – Arizona, Colorado, Maine and North Carolina – as a whole, meaning it is most at risk.

Mathematics: This is nine seats. Cook, by contrast, ranks only two Democrats – Alabama and Michigan – as competitive. And when you think that Democrats only need to win three seats to regain a majority if Biden wins the presidential race (and four if he does not), you can see why Republicans had a very bad Saturday night (and Sunday).
