Implied in the title is that President Trump will win re-election. That doesn’t mean the presidential election is the only important election on Tuesday night. Republicans have a lengthy list of goals to achieve, starting with growing Mitch McConnell’s majority in the Senate and finally firing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker for the final time. It’s time to drive an electoral wooden stake through that vampire’s heart once and for all.

Earlier tonight, Joni Ernst and Mitch McConnell got great news when the final Des Moines Register poll showed Sen. Ernst leading her opponent by a 46-42 margin. Prior to that, Greenfield had led. But I digress.

It’s obvious that President Trump will win. Articles like this cement that impression:

Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient Black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania with only four days until the election, according to people familiar with the matter.

That’s quite predictable. Those voters are likely voting for President Trump or they aren’t voting. Joe Biden doesn’t excite them. This is the chief reason why:

Black voters didn’t forget that incident. This didn’t help either:

President Trump will have lots of support to implement the Platinum Plan for African-Americans and broad support for the American Dream Plan for Hispanics.

Once President Trump secures another term, Sen. Tim Scott’s police reform bill should become a high priority. Sen. Scott’s bill should’ve gotten serious consideration the first time it was proposed. Sen. Scott should make a public attempt to recruit Sen. Klobuchar and Sen. Manchin as co-sponsors. If they say yes, he’s 2 votes closer to passing his bill. If they don’t agree, then they have a major explanation to their state on the bipartisanship front. Further complicating things for Sen. Klobuchar is the fact that she represents Minneapolis, which wanted to dismantle its police department.

Democrats don’t dare oppose these plans in a serious way if they don’t want to be the minority party for the next decade. Republicans better jump on board, too, if they don’t want to get primaried. Implementing these deals would put Republicans in the driver’s seat for the mid-term future.

Bringing back more of the medical supply chain to the US should be a high priority, too. That was exposed as a national security vulnerability during COVID. That can’t continue to be a vulnerability. President Trump should push additional middle class tax cuts as part of the Platinum Plan or American Dream Plan, too. At minimum, push Democrats to help make the tax cuts permanent.
