Less Solutions, More Trump
Surprisingly, last night's lower-tier Democrats focused less on Trump and more on issues. Even with MSNBC's progressive darling Rachel Maddow moderating the second half of the debate, Democrats refrained from mentioning Trump, taking a page out of Harry Potter's playbook -- "He who must not be name."
The only candidates to mention Trump last night were Gov. Jay Inslee, Rep. Tim Ryan, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and most news outlets agree that all three placed at the bottom after their performance on a national stage.
While Trump was not much of a topic during the debate, don't expect the same to transpire tonight. With tonight's debate featuring some of Trump's most ardent adversaries -- Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg -- expect Democrats to target the president early and often.
Expect collusion, impeachment and Special Counsel Robert Mueller to headline tonight's debate.
Fighting for Illegal Immigrants
A national topic that Democrats are fervently campaigning on, immigration will be a primary focus for candidates in tonight's debate. With the discussion of building a border wall picking up steam, as well as the recent photo that surfaced showing two immigrants risking it all for a better life, liberals seeking to usurp Trump will lean heavily on the narrative that America vehemently opposes diversity in the U.S.
They'll also rely on anecdotal stories to get their point across, omitting the fundamental fact that illegal immigration erodes America's foundation that was built on laws and principles.
Democrats in tonight's debate will take the moral high ground on the value of life when it comes to immigration, but continue to turn a blind eye to the life of the unborn.
An Emphasis on "FREE"
While Wednesday night's field was rather tame, tonight's group of candidates are certainly more progressive. If there's one word that these far-left candidates like to use, it's "free." Free health care, college and basic income will be heavy talking points tonight -- hopefully not in Spanish.
With the self-professed Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders headlining tonight's debate, expect the word to be free-ly thrown around during the 2-hour debate. Sanders and the rest of the Democrats will utilize the incentivized word in hopes of attracting young voters to their cause. By dangling these promises in front of youthful eyes, Democrats are hoping this tactic will energize Generation Z voters to turn out during the 2020 election.
