(National Sentinel) Election 2020: It may be way too early for most Americans to even think about the 2020 presidential election, but politicos inside and outside the Washington Beltway are already considering it.
While there has been much speculation, particularly among the GOP, that someone will step forward to challenge President Donald J. Trump in the Republican primaries, Cain doesn’t think that’s going to happen.
“I don’t believe any of the GOP people are going to try to run against (Trump), to take him out, they’re just going to probably try to work against him, like many of them are doing right now,” Cain told Fox Business on Wednesday.
Several analysts have weighed in with their predictions as to who they believe will challenge Trump. They include Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and retiring Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who has been a vocal critic of the president.
But in August, pollster Tony Fabrizio conducted a poll pitting Trump against Kasich, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sasse, and Cotton in a hypothetical primary.
The survey found that Trump had 50 percent support within the GOP, while Cruz earned 14 percent of the hypothetical vote and Kasich sat at 10 percent. Sasse and Cotton each had 1 percent support.
As for Trump, he has already qualified as a candidate for the 2020 race, though some have speculated he would not run again.
Cain went on to tell Fox Business that Republicans who continue to slight the president or otherwise fail to support his “America first” agenda have a day of reckoning coming.
“We are keeping track of the Republican RINOs on health care, the Republican RINOs on the tax bill, and we’re going to keep a rolling list of all of the Republicans in name only so we can share it with the public,” Cain said, using the acronym for “Republicans In Name Only.”
Cain says he is keeping track of those GOP members on his website.
“Many of these Republicans, they believe that their constituency has short memories. Some of them do, but we don’t, and we’re going to make sure people know how, on these big issues, that the public cares about, many of them did not support the president,” Cain added.
