My hunch is that swinging door will be much bigger by the 2020 election....


as the economy weakens significantly between now and then. Rising interest rates here and abroad, ill-conceived trade policies, anti-growth tariffs, wasted tax cuts on corporations and super wealthy and rising deficits will combine to temper consumer spending in a big way. Any number of major industries, unfortunately, like autos, homebuilding, semiconductors, manufacturing and restaurants to name a few - are already rolling over. I'm basing that on stock market trends, third quarter quarter earnings reports and 2019 corporate and Fed growth forecasts. Trump will obviously try and blame the Democrats, the Federal Reserve and China (among others) but enough people, aside from the ideologues and uninformed, will see through his BS. It will be up to the Democrats to take advantage of the opportunity Trump's self-serving, failed economic policies create and come up with some sensible alternatives.
