Democrats in Ohio are fearing that President Donald Trump’s handling of the economy, as well as the Democratic Party’s agenda, will see them lose working-class votes in the 2020 election, new reports indicate.

Democratic strategists are concerned that Trump's ability to connect with blue-collar workers is lacking in their own presidential candidates.

While Dems continue to focus on anti-Trump efforts and social justice issues of little interest to working-class voters, liberal tacticians fear their votes will be lost to Trump, who has touted himself as a defender of the American worker.

Prominent Democrat leaders in Ohio now appear to be taking note and are increasingly calling out their own party for its continued focus on issues such as Trump’s tax information.

Working-class voters have repeatedly signaled to not care about such issues.

According to the Daily Caller, President Trump is pitching himself as an aggressive working class champion, while Democratic nominees continue to harp on issues unrelated to working-class interests such as Trump’s taxes, Democratic operatives told The New York Times.

Even 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, who styles himself as a blue-collar Democrat, is totally missing the point, one of them said.

“The Democratic Party has lost its voice to speak to people that shower after work and not before work,” Ohio Democratic leader David Betras told The NYT.

“All we’re saying is: He won’t turn over his tax returns. He’s saying, ‘I’m fighting China to get you better jobs.”

“They don’t care about his taxes,” Betras added. “They just don’t.”

Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan says Trump is 'Trump is “punching China in the face'

Democratic Ohio Rep. and presidential candidate Tim Ryan used similar terminology, saying Trump is “punching China in the face,” while Biden says China isn’t a serious problem.

“If we go into the election with that as our message, we’ll get beat again,” he told The NYT.

The economic doom experts have been forecasting since the early stages of Trump’s campaign has so far not materialized.

The economy is doing well in terms of job creation, GDP and unemployment, even as he heats up the trade dispute with China. 

“What I want from a president is the rest of the world to look at him and go, ‘Don’t mess with that guy, he will get even,'” Ohio voter Darrell Franks told The NYT.

He is a former Democrat who voted for Trump.

“I don’t want kinder, gentler.

"I don’t want some female that wants her agenda.”
