When all is said and done, the Democrats will likely face a three-way race for the presidency in 2020. They have yet to offer a candidate with the gravitas to win. Accusing Mr Trump of conspiring with Russians or being a white supremacist won’t cut it.
With the likelihood of a recession in 2019, their failure to come up with an economic plan that addresses the “Deplorables” will further the Democrats undoing.
In addition, they will still insist on ignoring fly-over state voters, insisting that failure to reach out to those voters was not the cause of their 2016 defeat. They will stick with the preferred strategy of trying to get out more Democratic voters i.e. black American voters, who didn’t come out for Mrs Clinton in 2016.
Besides, I don’t really see any of the Netroots Nation or Color of Change types knocking on the doors of the Billy Bob types in 2019 or 2020 for fear of being met by a shotgun and a bible verse.
