The electorate’s normal voting patterns seems to be one third Republican, one third Democratic with the middle third swinging back and forth based on issues and candidates. These swing voters need a reason to cast their votes, and there are several glaring issues which would resonate well in 2020.
Environmental disasters past and present have hurt every part of the country. Automation is advancing, so training for the jobs of the future can prepare workers to combat overseas competition. The coal states might be willing to abandon their mines for open-air, good paying jobs on solar and wind farms. All would benefit from infrastructure improvements with high speed rail, road and electrical grid improvements.
All citizens would benefit from the end of oneparty monopolies with fair voting rules and reasonable election laws. Either party could push for the reestablishment of congressional oversight of behavior and legislative norms curbing the excesses of the executive branch, overreaching regulative agencies, and primary focused, term-limit averse, quarrelsome, arrogant, legislators.
