One Indicator of Potential 2020 Election Results

Publisher's note: The author of this post is Mitch Kokai for the John Locke Foundation.

    Loyd Pettegrew writes at about one little-discussed factor that could offer a preview of 2020 election results.

  • Progressives inhabiting the mainstream media, the Democratic Party and Hollywood continue to herald how the Covid-19 virus, tainted economy, condemnation from China, the racist police beating of innocent demonstrators, and the disunifying editorial from four star General James "Chaos" Mattis about our president, are harbingers of doom for the Trump administration and Republican candidates come election time. There is at least one strong indicator that may prove these liberal naysayers wrong about the effects the current schiff-storm may have at the ballot box in November.
  • John R. Lott, Jr. wrote in National Review that the "Police have stopped responding to many 911 calls, and massive numbers of inmates are being released early from prison." During the past 14 days people have been rioting and vandalizing in the streets of America, including unlikely places like Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Fifth Avenue in New York City and even Whitefish, Montana. From Florida to Utah and elsewhere around the country, something very interesting is happening in gun stores. Most gun stores receive new product orders on Friday afternoons. For the past month people have been lining up outside gun stores to purchase new weapons and ammunition first thing Saturday morning. ...
  • ... If gun sales are any indication of how people might vote in the 2020 Election, there is good reason for liberals and social progressives to be concerned. With calls for defunding police departments and thuggish "Black Lives Matter" protests, many citizens, out of the immediate chaos of these events, are assessing what America's future may look like in the light of the last three weeks. This large uptick in the purchase of guns and ammo would suggest those quietly acquiescing to looters ... are not highly esteemed by normal Americans.
