They should listen to their voters.....that's what they should do.(Instead they paint anyone who disagrees with the elites of the party as a bigot/fascist/homephobe/islamophobe)
If They don't wake up, they could take a hammering in 2018......I think they have to defend something like 20 Senate seats in states Trump won. He'll play it between the ditches between now and then, but if he scores big in 2018 he will do whatever the fvck he wants for the final 2 years....and that won't be good for anyone one
How about some specifics, given that you're so adamant about where the Dems are going wrong?
Clinton won 48% of the vote. Trump 46%.
So what do the Dems need to do to swing the 0.5-1.0% it would take to tilt things back?
Say that its ok to ban muslims? Ban the building of mosques?
Deport people who were born in or entered the US as young children, speak with American accents and know no other country, back to Mexico or Guatamala? Or deport their illegal parents and split families up?
Ban all abortion outright and drive abortion back to the back alley butchers?
Say that its ok to discriminate against gay people, that they're less worthy than the rest of us? And definitely don't deserve the dignity of legally marrying and spending their lives with their same-sex partners.
Embrace the false scientific positions of the climate denial and creationist movements?
Embrace the conspiracy theorism of the right, where big government crackdown and martial law is always just one step around the corner (e.g. Jade Helm) and actual false flag operations such as Sandy Hook and Orlando are carried out with the aim of disarming the populace.
Capitulate completely in the gun debate, completely giving up on even the ridiculously modest attempts at tracking and checking backgrounds that the right ludicrously resists?
Reject the need to protect the environment and save the few remaining wild places and open everything up to drilling, mining and grazing, including the destruction of any species or habitat that stands in the way of a few short term bucks?
Embrace the right wing position that is in fact white people who are the real victims in modern society, and that minorities are taking the decent, hardworking taxpayers to the cleaners and need to shut the f**k up about being disproportionate victims of police violence and judicial injustice?
On 2018, yeah, the Dems are probably fucked, unless Trump and the GOP completely overplays their hand. So be it. The backlash will come soon enough.
