Springsteen like other political analysts share the view that Trump made voters believe that they are no longer forgotten.
Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen has gone full Michael Moore in his predictions about the 2020 election. In an interview with The Sunday Times published this week, the iconic performer said he doesn't see "anyone out there at the moment" — man or woman — who's got a shot to take down President Trump.
"Donald Trump’s most dangerous opponent may not be a politician, but a blue-collar rocker called Bruce Springsteen who shares millions of the same supporters as the Republican president, and also understands what makes grassroots America tick," the Sunday Times reports. "So Trump should be pleasantly surprised to learn that Springsteen, a long-standing Democrat who campaigned for Barack Obama, believes the Donald is heading for a second term in the White House. The president has a flair for winning over working-class voters that the Democrats can’t rival, the singer admits. In short, Trump was born to run, and may be unstoppable."
"I don't see anyone out there at the moment ... the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump," Springsteen told the magazine.
Thus far, the 69-year-old singer said, the Democratic Party simply has no "obvious effective presidential candidate" who will be able to take on the president because they do not "speak the same language" he does. That language, he suggested, is the language of middle America, and ultimately the reason Trump was able to win over many of the Boss's blue-collar fans.
