On Monday, MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch stunned viewers when he claimed that “anybody” besides Trump would win in a landslide for the GOP in 2020. He goes on to say that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would win by more than double digits.
“Here’s the fact, if the Republicans ran anybody but Donald Trump, they would win in a landslide. Anybody just right of center, anybody,” Deutsch told the far left Joe Scarborough.
It appears that the left is still underestimating Donald Trump’s appeal, but that’s an argument for another day.
“Anybody!”, Scarborough exclaimed. “Donny, nobody has said this enough. Nobody has said this enough. You go back and look at 2020, Democrats were shocked by how badly they underperformed in the House. Shocked by how badly they underperformed in the Senate,” he continued.
“And yet Republicans still did very well except for Trump. And if anybody but Trump had run, they would have won by 20 points,” added the far-left host.
“I would like to see some polls. First, a poll of Trump against Biden, which I think Trump would eke out a victory,” Deustch shockingly said.
“But then I want to see polls with Nikki Haley, or Ron DeSantis or fill in the blank, and they would win by over double digits. It is, you know, I live in this bubble and this very kind of blue state, and I cannot tell you the, the unrest with the feeling of the Democrats in control the way they are running things, the way Biden not feeling his hands on the wheel and nobody on deck. That’s the concern that Democrats have. But if the Republicans were smart, they would move away from Trump. Can they? Will they? You and I don’t know that. But clearly, if they did, it would be a landslide,” he added.
If the Republicans run ANYBODY but Trump they win in a landslide in 2024. Sadly they have a chance with Trump. Dems better find their way to the center. pic.twitter.com/7683Fn0Gdb

Scarborough added the following:
“I want to say this. There are a lot of people that would say, here’s Donny, he’s living in his rich home. He’s living on the Upper East Side, he’s rich, and he’s got weird art behind him. And he’s disconnected. Make no mistake, Donny, Donny got that home by understanding what Americans want, as far as brands go, understanding how they connect to Americans. And I will say this, and you may not like a former Republican saying this, with an ad exec saying this, a branding guru saying this. What Donny’s saying, ‘Please, Democrats nationwide, listen to me, it’s really important to understand you were so radically out of step, radically out of step with mainstream voters. There’s a reason why a guy from West Virginia and sort of conservative moderate from Arizona, made you the majority, along with two people in Georgia who were made winners by Donald Trump.’
“This is the world I live in,” Deutsch added.
“I live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It cannot be more navy blue. And this is what I’m hearing. By the way, there were Bill Clinton voters, there were Barack Obama voters, there weren’t Joe Biden voters. They were anti Trump voters. Alright? And Joe Biden does not have the hearts and minds of this country. And the other Democrats that we see being paraded forward, the AOC’s of the world, the far-left, are suicide for the Democrats. So the Democrats better get some new faces and the Democrats better figure out that this world lives just right of center or on a good year, just left of center and it’s this socialist kind of pulling all the way to the left is a disaster. And we are staring at a democracy in peril. This is not just, ‘Oh, I like this issue. I don’t like this issue.’ We don’t get this right in 2024, it ain’t ever going to be right. This should sounding the alarm bells on what’s going on now. It’s just, our democracy is really at stake. And the Democrats need to understand where the world lives” he concluded.
