Trump wins against Dems in 2020 merchandise sales

He is fighting against the drop in the polls, but President Trump crushes the potential competition of 2020 – when it comes to merchandise sales. Merchandise promoting “Trump 2020” far exceeds other potential White House hopefuls at an online retailer.

Trump 2020 merchandise, which includes everything from hats to “Keep America Great” shirts to bumper stickers, leads the pack on, with the highest sales yet, nearly 41%, among goodies involving the upcoming presidential election.

{mosads}But not all Trump-related merchandise in 2020 — nearly 49,000 items in total — necessarily supports the current commander-in-chief. Some items tagged with Trump’s name and the upcoming presidential election year are far from free, including shirts stating that January 20, 2021 will be the “end of a mistake” and a car magnet reading “Donald Trump ’20: Just to fuck you!”

And general “Election 2020” items drove 40.7% of sales among election-related products.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), which failed to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in last year’s race, trails Trump far behind in terms of “Bernie 2020” sales, with 13.6%. A $19 t-shirt declares “Hindsight is 2020”, with an image of Sanders, while a sweatshirt encourages voters to “#FeelTheBern” in three years. Sanders, 75, did not throw his hat in the 2020 race.

michelle obama repeatedly said she would never run for office, but that didn’t stop CafePress patrons from picking up material touting a “Michelle 2020” run, accounting for 5% of sales. The former first lady said in April that she would not ask the girls Sasha and Malia to “do it again” because “when you run for a higher position, it’s not just you, it’s your whole family”.

Although there are loads of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) items for sale on the site (more than 18,000 products according to a CafePress spokeswoman), customers do not necessarily buy them. “Elizabeth Warren 2020” items had no sales percentage among 2020 products.

Warren said in April that she did not plan to run for president in 2020.
