Why Biden's immigration plan may be risky for Democrats
The 2020 election provided several warning signs that, despite Democratic efforts to build a multiracial coalition, Latino support could be at risk. “It means so much to us to have a new president propose bold, visionary immigration reform on Day 1. Menendez was part of a bipartisan immigration plan championed by the “Gang of Eight” senators that collapsed in 2013. President George W. Bush also pushed an immigration package — with an eye toward boosting Latino support for Republicans before the 2008 election — only to see it fail in Congress. Still, Latinos haven't forgotten past immigration failures and have often blamed Democrats more than Republicans.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll this month found 61% of suburban voters disapprove of Trump, little changed over three years.

Before the shift, the Affordable Care Act appeared to hurt Democrats politically at the outset as Republicans billed it as a government takeover of health care.

Trump needs more than a 'phase one' US-China trade deal to boost 2020 odds, GOPers say
President Donald Trump has hailed the partial trade agreement with China as the "greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers." And Trump will need a better one if he hopes to use it to boost his reelection odds, according to Republican and Democratic strategists. Only a real resolution of the trade war, not a sweet sounding press release, will matter," Sabato said. The trade war between the U.S. and China has been particularly damaging to states dominated by farm and manufacturing economies, where the president's 2016 margin was in some places thin. "This trade deal is being sold as something that will help America and the economy.cnbc.com
