Chad at 'The Stream': Which Democrat Will Win the Twitter Primary to Face the Tweeter-in-Chief in 2020?

The 2020 primary is underway on the Democrat side of the aisle with almost every Democrat in America planning or considering launching a bid for the nomination. It will be interesting to watch the cable networks try to fit all of the Democrats onto the same stage for a debate.

We live in a new era in presidential politics thanks to social media and partially to Donald Trump, who used Twitter and other social media to his advantage in 2016.

The traditional way of winning the White House is to knock on doors, kiss babies, and hold campaign rallies in swing states. While these activities are still helpful and necessary, there is another component that is just as important, if not more important in modern politics: winning the social media primary.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Wants To Be The Ross Perot Of 2020 And Help Trump Win

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has all but officially announced his run for the White House in 2020. This is the best thing that could happen to Donald Trump. It’s Ross Perot all over again, but this time it’ll help the Republicans and not hurt them.

When Ross Perot ran his failed independent campaign in 1992, he took votes away from George H.W. Bush and gave us Bill Clinton.

If Schultz goes through with his campaign in 2020, it’ll do nothing but hurt the Democrats because he is no doubt a left-leaning Democrat. Just examine the values of Starbucks under his leadership, and it’ll give you an idea about his worldview. If he goes through with running, it doesn’t matter which candidate the Democrats put up against Trump; it almost guarantees Trump gets reelected and this is especially true if they run a weak candidate again like Hillary Clinton.

Starbucks is a corporate brand not well liked among conservatives, and their former CEO running will not take votes away from Trump. If it was the CEO of Hobby Lobby, that’s a different story.

This is the worst news for the Democrat Party since election night when Trump was announced the winner. Perot received almost 20% of the vote in 1992. If Schultz gets a similar percentage of the vote, it’s panic time at MSNBC.
