Could SHUTDOWN cost Trump 2nd Term?
could this SHUTDOWN cost Trump a lot of LOST VOTES in 2020?


"Federal workers affected by the government shutdown have more than $400 million in mortgage and rent payments due this month, and it could cause chaos for the US housing market



Federal workers not receiving pay owe $249 million in mortgage payments and $189 million in rent payments this month, according to Zillow.

Some federal housing programs such as Federal Housing Administration loans, Veterans Affairs loans, and USDA loans are experiencing delays.

Additionally, the Department of Housing and Urban Development cannot pay rental assistance to landlords who provide roughly 100,000 low-income Americans with affordable housing.

As the shutdown enters a record-tying 21st day, a number of worries are piling up, ranging from looming mortgage payments for federal workers to missing rent assistance from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The problems have left workers worried about making ends meet, potential buyers frozen out of loans, and affordable housing experts concerned about evictions.

Missing paychecks mean missed payments"------

I would imagine that if this SHUTDOWN has a negative impact to a significant portion of citizen voters then it could have negative impact to Trump's potential for WINNING a 2nd term

You could also blame the dems for causing this.

Trump's biggest problem is demographics. From the last election until the next around 4 million new Democrats eligible to vote will have been added to the rolls due to legal immigration alone. Texas and Arizona will almost certainly flip to blue in 2020. Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Wisconsin are all state where Trump barely won and could flip.

Who do they run though?

Michelle? Hillary again? Chelsea Clinton? Bernie? Elizabeth Warren?

If Trump builds a wall, then he has a chance to get most of the votes that he got 1st time around.

Either way, it seems if Dems eek out the next Presidential election, the US is headed for civil war. The better question is whether there is an economic collapse before that.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has unofficially announced a run. This could be quite interesting. She's a Progressive, which is problematic in its own right, but she's way more honest than Sanders, Warren, and especially Hillary. She's also pretty rock solid on foreign policy issues. I'm not sure if Americans will elect a Hindu though.

I think the next recession will happen in 2021 (regardless of who gets elected) so I don't expect it will be a factor in the election.

I also think that there will be a civil war but I don't see it happening soon. Maybe it will happen in 20 years.
