I think they need to get back to "grass roots" economic issues like Bernie hypes on... we both know DT and the current GOP leaders won't do sheite for the working class, so if Dems could craft a "pocketbook" economic message they might win a lot back !! But each state is different !
Yup, going back to economic issues is a major factor....again! Bernie has the right ideas and the rest of the Dems should adopt his 'platform' with some modifications; I.e.: this country isn't ever going to go for 'free tuition', I don't think. The Repubs have also used the past eight years to do some massive 'ground work'. They did not sit lazily on their fat a$$e$ and lament for their lost presidential election. But I also think there's a wide 'opening' now for the Dems to jump right in and 'hammer' away at the health insurance issue! And I mean hammer away every darn day until 2018 and thereafter! This entire affair shows again and again how little the Repubs care about the general population. Remember the mean and numerous scare tactics of the Repubs when the ACA was created? Some Repub idiots still mention and believe in the creation of death panels. The health insurance issue could and IMHO should become the issue! Or, as Bernie says again and again: "Medicare for all!"
One reason they're NOT more effective is the Dems don't come out in MASS to defend their own like the GOP does***. ACA was a GOOD thing... they all ran from it... economic recovery an outstanding thing... rarely talked about it! HC emails... OK political blunder but she didn't do anything illegal...and nothing a slew of GOP politicians had done before her ! Occasionally discussed... where's the rabid defense like the GOP gives? THat definitely comes into play... and BTW Pelosi was VERY effective as speaker... it just was rarely highlighted.
***Look at the idiots continually defending Trump even though he's proves totally INEFFECTIVE.. .can't get the damned Healthcare bill passed after 7 years of running on repeal, and voting to repeal 60 times !! , where;'s the FKing Wall, infrastructure, tax reform... they haven't done sheite except reverse some of BOs EOs by their own EOs... a moron (speaking of GW) can do that !! It's PATHETIC but yet they still defend him!
Wall street dropped 100 points today AFTER it was announced Trumpcare was NOT going to the Senate floor for a vote this week. MAJOR conservative donors, like the KOCH Bros, have withdrawn any more funding for the GOP because they can't deliver on CRAP... yet many morons and most of GOP Congress STILL backs Trump!! Some and many donors are beginning to see the Emperor has no Clothes !! ... just big jaws and thumbs that keep rambling on uselessly !!
Who do you propose take over the Dem leadership ? (asking because I don't have ANY names in mind)
