    • Little 'ole Afrocentrist me always asks why working class people in minority groups find harmony with the Democrats, while white working class voters do not. I think racial bias plays a major role in the division

    • Wow, is Ellison really saying anything so outlandish? "No drama Obama" as a strategy had some benefits, but some disadvantages as well. Until campaigning for Hillary & other Dems in 2016, it often seemed his heart wasn't into that party thing (and frequently over the first 6 years it was a...

    • Trump attracts a strange brew. It is tempting to try to find evidence of normality within his supporters. There are still attempts to argue that Ivanka and Jarrod will have a moderating effect on Trump despite the absence of evidence verifying that assumption. Matt's is supposed to be the adult...

    • Thanks NCD 

      I tried to provide links to support my position. I have seen no plan that would get Trump supporters to switch to the Democrats. Very few Trump supporters regret their vote. Trump voter income was in the $75K range. Race trumped economics for many Trump voters. Ignoring facts...

    • Thanks for the discussion. I understand your position but it seems that by calling groups self-defining and failing to reach out ignores the reality that Democrats reach out to black neighborhoods every four years. Labor unions, environmental groups, and Planned Parenthood reach out to Democrats...

    • Response to AA from above
