The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
If they (Democrats), continue to be the party of "We're Never Wrong!", then yes, they will most likely not get back the White House anytime soon.
If Trump keeps his campaign promises, if he continues to bring jobs back to the US and in outstanding numbers, people will vote for him again, and
will more than likely attract many more voters.
Democrats have a hard time accepting that they might be wrong about something. They tend to point fingers and never really look at themselves
(remember: it was all W. Bush's fault!). This is going to be (and has been) a fatal error on their part.
We've been seeing it since before the election: Hillary stole the nomination from Bernie. Doing something like that was horribly wrong.......but, they
just rolled over and accepted it.
They ate up every poll showing how Hillary was going to stomp Trump into the ground, because those polls could never be wrong.
They ignored groups of people they don't agree with because they think they are always wrong, and that they are right. No need to stump in states that
are blue most of the time, because they know they are right.
And so they lost the election.
Now, I can understand the initial shock. If you eat up all the crap that MSM feeds you, yaaaaah, you're going to be in for a shock when the truth
walks up and knocks you upside the head.
So. They lost. What was the first thing they did? Did they step back and try to figure out why they lost by looking at themselves? Did that stop and
try to figure out if their strategies were wrong? Did they stop and take a look at the message they kept sending and wondering if it was the wrong
message? Did they stop and wonder if maybe they were wrong about anything?
Nope. The first thing they did was insist that Trumps victory was a mistake! Because, you know, they can't be wrong. A recount is needed! Trump
supporters somehow cheated!.....all of which proved to be: wrong.
Wait! They can't be wrong! It must be the system! Hillary won the popular vote! To hell with the fact we've been using the same system for over 200
years! It's WRONG! (unless we win that way.....then it's right.).
Ah HA! It was the Russians! The Russians interfered with the elections! They caused Trump to get into power! Because there is no way we could have
done anything wrong during the elections! We are always right.....it has to be something else!
And of course when none of that panned out, they decided that Trump won because too many people in America are racist bigots.......kill all people
that are white! Because we could NEVER be wrong about something.........
At no point have I been seeing Dems step back and take a good long hard look at themselves. Take a look at what their party has become. Who their
leaders are. How they constantly assume things, and feel entitled.
They have even been told what is wrong: Stop ignoring everyone else. Stop insulting everyone that doesn't agree with you. Stop trying to punish
everyone that doesn't agree with you. Stop thinking everything should be given to you.
That last sentence is important. Dems tend to go on and on about how immigrants built this country and became very successful. And they are right
about that.........but what they are wrong about (which they'll never admit, because, you know, can't be wrong) is that those very immigrants they
tout on about would be spitting at their shoes and walking away from them right now. Because:
They didn't have everything handed to them! They had to work their butts off to achieve what they achieved. They actually had a good sense of
Here is my prediction on the 2020 election, assuming as I said, Trump doesn't screw up, keeps his promises and we get more and more jobs:
The election map will pretty much look like it did this last time. Red states will be happy. Blue states that turned red will stay red. We'll see gobs
of blue where all the major mega cities are. Trump will win the EC again and do a 2nd term.
