Can Senator Sherrod Brown Appeal To Trump Voters?

131 ratings | 7668 views
Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio holds an unusual distinction in the 2018 midterm campaign for Congress. He is a Democrat seeking re-election in a state President Donald Trump carried easily two years ago. But unlike several colleagues in the same situation, the raspy-voiced populist has moved far ahead of Republican challenger Jim Renacci in polls assessing his bid for a third term. If Brown wins and Democrats manage to recapture the Senate, Brown stands to chair the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee — a worrisome prospect for Wall Street. Brown's success has placed him squarely in early speculation about Democrats who may seek the presidency in 2020. More than most politicians in his party, he has shown broad appeal among working-class voters – including the blue-collar whites who represent Trump's political base. That's not merely a matter of personality. Brown sides with Trump's combative posture on trade, backing the president's decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement and confront China with tariffs. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

This is my guy. The only one I think can go toe to toe with Trump. I don’t know if he’ll win since I don’t underestimate the stupidity of the American people, but this guy has a shot.

Brown and Michael Avenatti should be running mates. They can print their campaign slogan on wife beater shirsts and give them out with cases of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer at trailer parks across the country!
Robert Cerney (3 months ago)
Don't trust Democrats as far as I can spit. This guy is the flavor of the day and would be an easy defeat for Trump.

I agree

People are waking up and walking away from the Trojan horse of democrats. Don't be fooled. The Democrats say one thing and do another. They are the cause of the rust belt. Democrats will say anything for the vote. They are a Trojan horse.
Aaron Tucker (1 month ago)
First we must understand that politicians will do and say anything for re-election. Both Democrats and Republicans. Careerism isn't exclusive to just one political party. Second, being a businessman, (if you can even call Trump that), and President of the United States of America are two very different things. Like a doctor and a lawyer. And you don't want a lawyer performing heart surgery on you. Just because you can make a couple hundred million bucks, doesn't mean that you can solve highly delicate and complicated issues that come with governing a country. Finally, the only evidence you have for your Rust Belt statement is what is essentially a Trump tweet.
Doran and Carolyn V (1 month ago)
+zyxwut321 The "rust belt" is on the rise, thanks to President Trump and the new trade agreements. Obama was completely overwhelmed because he had no experience in the business world. He allowed areas of our nation and economy to deteriorate and "rust."
zyxwut321 (1 month ago)
Of course. Because Republicans have done such favors for the Rust Belt. LOL

To those advertisers and stockholders of companies that advertise on CNN Don Lemon show, Lemon just called your consumers, white men, terrorists and a threat to our country. Not the brand image you were liking for? You do not want your brand image associated with racism, bigotry, and cruelty? Time to call your advertising agencies and media companies and move that money off his show before a nation wide boycott happens on your brand.

+Aja don't know why he did it and it doesn't matter. He did it.
Aja (17 days ago)
He actually sounds like someone who screams a lot, or has heart disease. Phemmy
Aja (17 days ago)
Mr Scratch yes. I guess he beat her ass because she wouldn’t share custody of their child/ dog.
Mr Scratch (17 days ago)
+Aja he beat his wife and violated a restraining order and somehow keeps it hidden. That's only two, though.

+pakpala1 I have 3 questions for you that I do not think you can answer honestly. 1) What on earth makes you believe I'm a "nutcase" and be correct about it? 2) Did you know that e already have Sensible... no, it's actually VERY STRICT Federal Background Checks? 3) By "Universal Background check" are you not referring to a Federal Gun Owner Registry?
pakpala1 (4 months ago)
You are a gun nutcase. Sensible universal background checks is what we need.

A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Schmuck Schumer and Diane Schmuckstien so until they kick the bucket this guy has no chance what so ever. Truth is truth, facts are facts and neither cares about your feelings...
Watcher of the Stars (3 months ago)
The idea that Democrats have "no chance what so ever" when Trump barely skimmed by in the electoral college by 3 states with 1% or less is the pinnacle of conservative stupidity.
Radeon Gamer 55 (3 months ago)
doopy noo hahahahaha , you really crack me up , back in 2008 did they say the same thing about republican because of Bush? Let me guess if your a democrat you must be a flag burning feminist Obama loving libtard , and no socialism is not an instrument spongebob

A vote for Trump is a vote for a racist, sexist, bigot and a criminal.

+RML 3000 v Trump monkeys winning! Your only hope is to find another country. The Demmytards new NPC slogan is "No we can't!" Less than 25% of America are schmucktard snowflakes looking for their safe space. You can't win with 25% do the math Tardboy 3000 v. Your mom said you can play in the sandbox as long as you ware your helmet and don't eat the nuggets. Your genetic garbage, your poor and can't get healthcare unless I pay for it for you. Looks like you might need to look into Canada aay...

Ohio is lucky to have him & Kasich. 2 men who do what is best for their state. Brown could be a viable 2020 candidate. Would trounce Trump.
