The problem isn't Trump. The problem is the Democrats are so weak.
The Democrats have alienated a large part of the middle of America with policies that they see as unamerican. I believe that Hillary lost the election when she made her comment about "deplorables". I remember going to the local fair and seeing defiant "I am a deplorable" t-shirts during the election... that one statement summed up how people felt about the Democrats; elitist and out of touch.
The Democrats need a general message that resonates with most Americans, and they are going to need to pull in more people from middle America. This means accepting people who are pro-life. This means toning back some of the social rhetoric. A governing party needs to lead from the middle.
The way Trump has done this by speaking to both sides. He has told Dreamers that he has a heart for them. He has told people that insurance will guarantee coverage for pre-existing conditions. What Trump is doing is duplicitous and ridiculous. But it works better than what the Democrats are doing.
The Democrats need a clear, inclusive message. And they need to be better than Trump at speaking to the needs of Americans at large. This is a pretty low bar... yet somehow it seems quite possible that the Democrats will fail to clear it, again.
Very interesting thought.
It can be added that the best for Democrats is working with president Trump.
Totally the contrary to what Democrats are doing, working with president Trump will bring "peace" and unity, and people do vote for the one who"unifies".
I heard propaganda from Democrat candidates insulting the president, saying that the Republican candidate is a follower of hatred, discrimination, etc. because stands in agreement with president Trump, and so forth.
Such was the strategy of Hillary Clinton and this is the biggest reason why she lost, she herself destroyed her image.
Only social resent, people refused by Ross Perot (If you hate other people I don't want your vote") voted blinded for Hillary Clinton.
Candidates must prove that they will work for "everybody" not solely for a certain kind or class of society.
The future of the country doesn't depend on Republican or Democrat tendencies but in working together.
How hard is this simple fact to be understood by all the attackers who use able2know forums to discredit president Trump at all cost?
