While U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz remains a key ally of the president, he might not be the most optimistic about Donald Trump’s chances in next year’s election.

Of course, the Texas Republican’s odds of “about 50-50” are more generous than some early polling would justify, but he noted a key factor that could play to the incumbent’s disadvantage.

“I think we are going to see staggering Democratic turnout in 2020,” Cruz said. “Anger is a powerful motivator. The far left is pissed. They are enraged by Donald Trump, and it means they’re going to show up, and the big question is, does everybody else show up?”
