Goldberg: Running Against Left-Wing Academia Might Work for GOP in 2020
Bernie Goldberg said that running against left-wing academia in the 2020 presidential race could be a successful campaign strategy for the GOP.
"If running against the media worked for Donald Trump in 2016, why wouldn't running against left-wing academia work for Republicans in 2020? I think it might," Goldberg told host Bill Hemmer.
A recent Pew Research Center poll showed that 58 percent of people who lean Republican view academia as having a negative effect on the country, while 78 percent of those who lean Democrat think it has a good effect.
Conservatives do not appreciate having "radical professors," "pampered left-wing students" shouting down conservative speakers, and "race hustlers" lobbying for separate graduation ceremonies for white and black students, Goldberg said.
"Relentless negativity" in the media is a form of bias as well, Goldberg remarked. "It's getting worse."
The same June poll also found that 85 percent of Republicans think the media has a negative effect, compared to 46 percent of Democrats.
