Ted Cruz spoke bluntly and truthfully in an appearance he made on This Week with George Stephanopoulos regarding Democrat chances of winning 2020.
Stephanopolous brought up the speculation that Texas will be a battleground state in 2020, to which Cruz replied pointing out the “broken” state of the Democrat party,
“I think Donald Trump has broken the Democratic party. They are defined now just by hating him. They ought to be the party of jobs. They used to be a party focused on jobs, they’re not anymore.”

The Washington Examiner has more to say about Cruz's statement on the Democrat party:
Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos that President Trump has "broken the Democratic Party" and that Democrats are solely focused on "hating him."
ABC host George Stephanopoulos mentioned Cruz's warning that Texas could be a potential background state in the 2020 presidential election and noted that five Republican House members from the state have come forward saying they would not seek reelection next year.
Cruz claimed that the third Democratic presidential debate in Houston on Thursday was a "very bad night" for Democrats because the candidates did not mention the economy's relative strength through the third quarter of this year.
"If you look at Thursday night, the entire night of the debate, not a single Democrat talked about jobs, not a single Democrat talked about the economy, about the fact that we've got the lowest African American unemployment ever recorded, the lowest Hispanic unemployment ever recorded," Cruz said.
The Daily Caller also commented:
Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has not always lauded the political work of President Donald Trump, but on Sunday said that Trump has “broken the Democratic Party.”
“I think Donald Trump has broken the Democratic Party,” Cruz said on ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” “They are defined now just by hating him. They ought to be the party of jobs. They used to be a party focused on jobs. They’re not anymore.”
Commenting on last week’s third Democratic debate from Houston, Cruz described the night as a collective political suicide.
“I think Thursday night the Democrats galloped even further to the left … not a single Democrat talked about jobs. Not a single Democrat talked about the economy, about the fact that we’ve got the lowest African-American unemployment ever recorded,” Cruz said.
The senator noted that “instead what they told the American people they want to raise your taxes, they want to triple the price you pay for a gallon of gas at the tax — at the pump, they want open borders, they want to take away your health insurance and they want to take away your guns.”
