Here’s How Obama Would Have Fared If He Was The One Running Against Trump

After the election, there has been much discussion from the left about the hypothetical outcome of a Donald Trump vs. Barack Obama election.

While the left claims Obama would have fared better than Hillary Clinton did in the actual 2016 election, there is no doubt that Donald Trump would have remained the victor.

Obama claimed he would have been more successful than Hillary Clinton due to his attention to Middle America; however, Middle America simply does not benefit at all from liberal policies, and Obama’s approval rating from Middle America is incredibly insignificant compared to that of Donald Trump.

The Daily Caller reported:

Obama claimed in a Monday interview with CNN’s David Axelrod that his ground game would have gotten out the minority vote such that he would have surmounted Trump’s election efforts in 2016. Not so fast, Scher wrote, because Obama’s dream falls apart amid a wash of black activists who voiced disappointment in his presidency during the run up to the election.

Not only do many disapprove of Obama’s administrative acts in the first place, but many were disappointed in his failed presidency in general.

The Daily Caller reported:

Scher asserted that Obama’s low approval rating through much of the campaign only served to hurt Democrats overall. Dr. Cornell West, one of the country’s most prominent black activists, opposed Obama for several years as a “neoliberal,” and the Black Lives Matters movement criticized Obama for not taking their side with respect to protests.

The Democratic policies promoted by both Obama and Hillary Clinton were a main factor in the degradation of the Democratic Party in 2016.

Obama’s belief that he would have fared better than Hillary Clinton just because he paid attention to rural American votes is a fallacy at best. The reasons all revolve around the benefits that would help Middle America, which are ones that do not exist in the Democratic platform.

The Daily Caller reported:

Scher argues that Democrats need to accept that even Obama couldn’t have pulled off a win against Trump because the Democratic Party needs to understand the importance of coalition building once again. If Obama and Clinton were able to alienate black voters, then it’s important to work to ensure those voters are motivated to return to the polls in 2018 and beyond.

Obama’s biggest fault in the belief that he would have won the presidency against Trump is his overestimation of his voting demographic.

The Daily Caller reported:

Scher’s analysis doesn’t, however, highlight that Obama considered himself part of the ballot, as the president stated repeatedly during his campaign speeches on behalf of Clinton. Obama even went as far as to say that if black voters didn’t deliver the White House to Clinton in 2016, it would be a direct insult to his legacy.

 

Black voters nationwide failed to turn out, and other groups like Latinos and white single women came out to vote for Trump in greater numbers than either former Gov. Mitt Romney or Sen. John McCain garnered in 2012 and 2008 against Obama.

While the discussion was mostly hypothetical, it leads to an extremely positive point: Middle America will benefit greatly under a Trump Administration.

    Obama is full of himself, and the only votes he would have gotten would have been himself, and his family!! People are fed up with him, his policies, and his debt!! They’re getting fed up with hearing his bull, too!! Time for him to walk off into the sunset, but we know we’d never be so lucky as to never hear from him again. He’s going to make sure he’s part of the spotlight, because he loves it too much!! What a loser!!

      He would have had not only all the black agitator votes, but he would have had them break knees of whites showing up at the polls. Also, they would have dug up all their ancestors from the grave and made them vote two or three times each for O’Bama…That O’Bama knows some stinky stuff…

      I see Obama v Trump as Wiley E. Coyote being flattened by The Road Runner.

  • David Stewart

    You mean you haven’t heard? Obongo is holding a special election on Jan. 18 for all those who were unhappy with the Trump-Clinton contest; or prevented from casting their vote due to white privilege. To make it fair, he is running against Harry “the liar” Reid! ( I am still fact-checking this data)

      Is he going to try to get the 10+ million illegal votes that Clinton got?

    The Fascist-in-Chief is mentally and spiritually demented, as are many Democrats today. Self-deception is difficult to recognize and harder to to eliminate. In his case, it comes from having all those around him, being “yes men” or “yes women.” He cannot build a coalition, even among union workers because they lost so much during his 8 years. When you lose your job, whether union or non-union, your big issue is to get a job. Democrats thought they made jobs by having the government spend a huge amount of money and get the country into more debt than ever before., It did not make new jobs.

    In my area, dependent upon oil and industry-related jobs, employment is way down due to restricting regulations imposed by Obama. In traditional Democrat coal areas, Obama’s “war on coal” has crippled and degraded many towns to “ghost towns” with most people out of work. “It’s the economy, stupid!” applies to Obama and is something he cannot run away from.

    Give billions to the largest state supporter of terrorism, bring in unvetted Muslim rapists and terrorists at the taxpayers expense, force young girls to have boys and men in their elementary restrooms, and other perversions that anyone with children (or with a moral center!) greatly objects to., Obama would have lost to Trump, possibly even more than Hillary did.

    Obama said he could have won and his touting himself shows a reality that fiction and facts are the only thing he understands. Fiction is how he touts himself while reality is what we saw. A totally inept failure of a President. He said he could have won but facts speak for themselves. Hillary was just another lying corrupt piece of liberal garbage. She was following in his image and he was trying to get people to turn out for her. His own arrogance and inept policies made people vote for Trump and not for his policies. He needs to go back to the funny farm where they put people with his mental demeanor.

    Little Johnny strikes again!!

    Barack Obama was visiting a primary school in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and visited a fourth-grade class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
    The teacher asked the president if he would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘tragedy.’
    So, our illustrious president asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’.
    One little boy stood up and offered: “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy.”
    “No,” said Obama, “that would be an accident.”
    A little girl raised her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy.”
    “I’m afraid not,” explained Obama. “That’s what we would call great loss.”
    The room went silent. No other child volunteered.
    Obama searched the room. “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”
    Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand.
    The teacher held her breath.
    In a quiet voice he said: “If the plane carrying you and Mrs. Obama was struck by a ‘friendly fire’ missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.”
    “Fantastic!” exclaimed Obama. “That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?”

    “Well,” says Johnny, “It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn’t be a great loss… and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn’t be an accident either!”
    The teacher left the room.

    “Look at me, I can walk on water.” Obama – ‘last licks.’
    “Muslim hostilities will cease the day I’m inaugurated..” Obama’s 2007
    Jihadist in the White House. At home and abroad. Jew-hatred is policy.
    A traitor in our White House, and the shoe fits…
    The list of impeachment charges are as follows:
    Article 1 – Usurpation of the Oval Office via criminal identity fraud.
    Article 2 – Malfeasance, misconduct and abuse of the Oval Office
    Article 3 – Aiding and Abetting known enemies of the United States
    Article 4 – The twenty fifth Amendment & Obama’s mental illness, numerous mental disorder.
    Message for the new President:: I hope your administration will have enough basic ground to impeach this Imposter, since Congress can’t seem to find the intestinal fortitude to impeach him.

    meglomaniacal delusion. The uppity little crazy legged bitch would have been soundly trounced. He will be very lucky if he’s not SHOT for high treason. He’d best make a mad dash for Kenya at this point. Don’t ever come back either you camel-dung ball.

  • Anvil6

    Indeed. What IF: The “black voters that didn’t” – REALLY DID, and voted for Trump!

  • Arch Stanton

    Yomama is only relevent in his own mind. He thinks he is the answer to everything. We will ALL rejoice when his half white a$$ is GONE!

  • ladyhuckleberry

    What an egotistical arrogant POS. He should be so lucky to think he would’ve been successful. He should rethink of the damage hes incurred with his so called policies. Give me a damned break. Thank God he’s on his way out.
