Niall Ferguson, historian and Senior Fellow Hoover Institution at Stanford University, explains to Brian Kilmeade that the low approval ratings for President Trump may not be a bad omen for 2020 if the democrats continue to move further to the left and nominate someone like Senator Elizabeth Warren or Senator Kamala Harris.
(Niall Ferguson) “And the challenge for the President I think is to withstand what is going to be a very tough year reminding himself that in the end it’s in 2020 that he stands for re-election and if the Democrats carry on going, as I think they are likely to, to the left and discount the idea of I don’t know Joe Biden as a candidate. If they’re drawn towards Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris who I think is going to be quite a strong contender, then it’s by no means over for this presidency. Ronald Reagan had approval numbers that were very very bad in his first term by this point.”
Niall Ferguson, historian and Senior Fellow Hoover Institution at Stanford University joined Brian Kilmeade to discuss how social media networks are deepening political polarization, why President Trump’s low approval ratings may not hurt his chances at re-election if democrats nominate a far left candidate such as Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris and how that all ties into his new book, “The Square And The Tower: Networks And Power, From The Freemasons To Facebook”.
