The 2020 landscape is shaking out in surprising ways.
Democrats are at a loss for words.
And Democrats just got hit with really bad news about this blue state flipping red in 2020.
Virginia voted Republican in every Presidential Election from 1968 to 2004.
But in 2001 the political terrain began to shift.
Mass immigration and an explosion in the size and scope of government flooded the commonwealth with tens of thousands of new Democrat voters.
The state’s political shift began with Democrat Mark Warner winning the 2001 Gubernatorial election and culminated with Barack Obama’s winning Virginia’s Electoral College votes in 2008 and 2012.
When Democrats won control of both Houses of the State Legislature and the governor’s mansion in 2017 and 2019, Virginia looked to be well on the way to turning into another New York or New Jersey.
But in recent weeks, two shocking polls scrambled the political calculus.
A Mason-Dixon survey of Virginia found Donald Trump leading Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in head to head matchups.
Former Vice President Joe Biden narrowly led Trump by four points.
This came on the heels of a Virginia Commonwealth University poll which showed the President in a tight race with Biden, Sanders and Warren.
Virginians could be recoiling at the aftershocks of Democrats controlling all of state government for the first time in over a generation.
After sweeping into power, Democrats led by racist Governor Ralph Northam immediately sought to ban and confiscate firearms.
The pro-gun majority in Virginia mobilized in response and 91 percent of Virginia counties passed resolutions becoming Second Amendment sanctuary counties and affirming that local officials would not enforce any unconstitutional gun grabs.
Democrats did not take well to Americans standing up for their God-given freedoms.
One Democrat state legislator even proposed calling in the National Guard to threaten firearms owners at the barrel of a gun to hand over their firearms to the Democrat-run state government.
Governor Northam proposed extra money in the budget to throw Virginians behind bars if they refused to comply with 1930s Germany style gun bans and confiscation.
Democrats rolled up victories in Virginia as the upper income counties in Northern Virginia turned blue thanks to foreign immigrants and government workers.
But the vast majority of counties in Virginia are filled with rural voters where Donald Trump can run up the score.
And with the Democrats’ new push to jail Virginians that don’t comply with gun confiscation by ordering armed soldiers to jail pro-gun residents, the President could have an opening in Virginia that many believed was permanently closed off.
The President lost Virginia by five points to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Polls showing Donald Trump trailing Biden by a similar margin suggest turnout and voting patterns in Virginia – and across the country – that will be favorable to the President’s re-election prospects.
And if President Trump ever carried Virginia then Trump will cruise to a historic re-election landslide.
