Dems, media blame GOP for shutdown, but it shouldn't matter

Nancy Pelosi looking to the rightA conservative activist maintains that he does not see any evidence that Republicans will lose any seats in the next election as a result of the government shutdown.

The partial government shutdown continues and President Donald Trump has lashed out against the Democrats after they steadfastly refused his latest compromise proposal over the weekend.

In addition, the president has already tweeted, #2020TAKEBACKTHEHOUSE, on social media.

However, some polls have indicated that the American people are blaming the president for the shutdown.

Gary Bauer, who heads the Campaign for Working Families, says that it is nothing out of the norm for Republicans to be the scapegoats for government shutdowns.

"Historically, I have not seen any evidence – even though in every previous government shutdown, Republicans have always been blamed by the media for the shutdown,” Bauer pointed out. “And there's always been polling that indicates the public – after reading and watching the media – also blames Republicans for a particular shutdown. I can find no evidence that in the next election – after these shutdowns – that Republicans lose any seats as a result of it."

Bauer also answered the question of whether or not America now has a crisis at the United States-Mexico border.

"Yes we do,” the conservative leader insisted. “It's a slow-moving, slow motion crisis, and unless we stop that crisis, a shutdown and the other things being raised – and the inconveniences that people are talking about – will amount to nothing compared to the implications for the country of continuing to allow in millions of people that we've not been allowed to check before they illegally enter our country."
