At the current rate Democrats have no chance of winning again for 12 years.

Donald Trump has accomplished more campaign promises in one week than Obama did in years, maybe a full term.

The public isn't used to seeing what happens when a politician works and keeps his word.

Undoubtedly the economic situation will be improved in 3 years using common sense policies he's implementing and that alone if he keeps us out of war will win him a 2nd term by more than 304 electoral votes.

Here is why:

The common American man pays no attention to politics, they work come home wake up and do it all over again. The left can not possibly grow their base on a base of identity politics. The identity politics are even turning off critical white voters.

Identity politics especially with the vocal LOUD presence of social justice warriors will damage the base, especially with faces representing them like Ashley Judd with her disgusting speech and Madonna's threats.

The Democrats blue wall is gone, here is why:
Trump focusing on auto makers will turn Michigan red.
Union leaders met with the President this week and left with absolutely outstanding reviews and were behind him 100%. Democrats seemed to ignore this, but this is the biggest political news of the week outside of policies set by the president.

We can look at Reagan's two terms and then immediately another Republican was elected.

I believe that cycle will repeat itself here and now, but it might go on further possibly 16 years, especially if Trump was very successful and another Trump were to run it could continue.


The only way the democrats can save their party is to stop the protests, get Hollywood out of the public eye as the face of their party and stop with identity politics. None of these will happen.

The democrats are finished unless Trump starts a war which I think is the last thing he wants to do.

Rarely does a party get three terms, especially with a controversial charge like Trump.

The landscape is unpredictable.

You're smoking crack.

I promise you they will get into office within the next 3 terms.

Look at it historically and you will understand what I'm saying. Statistically its a surefire thing.


Now the real question is, Why is that?

Yeah sure. Trump is the one who will take care of that. Four years in and out and that is if he doesn't get himself removed by then, the protests are the real sign of whats to come.

He will be a one term president and it is dems who will hold take it in a landslide. This is just wishful thinking. LOL

America's embarrassment will not be a two term president and you can take that to the bank.

eh... we'll see about that. Ever since recent Supreme Court rulings (FEC vs. McCutcheon Et. Al) I might doubt that.

No limits on monetary contributions = dollar bills as votes. Obviously it isn't quite as simple as that, but that spells it out most of the way

That's why I've recently concluded on my own that the left becoming unhinged is a good thing. I hope they remain that way throughout his Presidency.

I've seen the impact it's had on the center left. It's pushing them further right.

So I take it you don't believe me?

Carry on, by all means, hit the streets and protest. Make sure it gets national TV coverage

There will need to be a redefining of both Republicans and Democrats as what constitutes their core ideologies. What Donald Trump represents falls directly into neither category of current core policies of those 2 particular parties. The closer or further they drift to or from the Constitution and their priorities of economic and social security will determine their fate.

2016 should be and likely is the biggest wake up call to the global political establishment in modern history.

BREXIT and Trump spell a clear change in the desires of average Joe in todays world, those that fail to learn from why and how BREXIT / Trump came to be, will be doomed to repeat it and consequently relegated to the history books of what used to be.

That's where I don't agree, the GOP will become the party of Trump. It's now been redefined.

it`s all about the economy, if the average joe is making more money or getting better jobs than the democrats don`t have a chance.
political loyalty can very easily be swayed when money is on the line,at the end of the day the average joe will back the person who can help them put the most money in their pocket.
The democrats have failed not just the middle class but also the working poor, the democrats have failed every one who works.

What's funny is that Trump has made it a sure thing the Democrats will be back in the white house in 4 years.

Look at the madness from the past 72 hours, and tack on 4 years more to that. Do you really think there will be anyone on the left who WON'T vote in the next election?

I've seen the impact it's had on the center left. It's pushing them further right.



Before all this I was basically a socialist, about as far left as you can get on many topics. I had a few right wing beliefs but was for the most part left. Bernie was my man, or so I thought. I then voted Stein after the criminal crony capitalist political mercenary Hillary stole the nomination from Bernie.

Now I've woken up and seen the people running the left for what they are, users and abusers, quite possibly with the agenda to destroy the US as a sovereign nation. I still believe in many left wing socialist policies, but now realize that as things stand these policies can only make things worse due to all the rampant corruption in Washington.

As things stand, I may vote Trump next time around, in fact as things are going I'm almost looking forward to it. So it's not just pushing the center left to the right, it's pushing anyone on the left sick of identity politics, rioting, and ignoring legal double standards for our criminal political elite to the right. I mean they barely through gritted teeth can be made to admit that Hillary was a bad candidate, and many can't even do that much.

I'm actually due to this beginning to give Trump's ideas a chance, I've started to come around to many right wing ideas I never would before due to giving them more consideration thanks to my disgust for how many on the left are acting.

Mostly in our refusal to acknowledge the travesty that was Hillary Clinton and our refusal to drain our swamp and instead double down in our support for it. I understand as a transgender what it's like to have the people screaming loudest not really representing you. So I haven't written off my brothers and sisters on the left, but next time we go grass roots like we did with Bernie, we need to go all the way and not let something like what almost happened with Hillary had she gotten the presidency again.

We need to clean up Washington if we really want to fix things. Voting people like Hillary in does the opposite of that. There's nothing wrong with many socialist policies, if they are in the right hands. In the wrong hands, however...
