Huh, I guess the Democrats have over played their hand with the unions.

Isn't a "Demolition Derby" one of the favourite pasttimes of those "deplorables"?

This one could well be an All Comers party.  The Dems are doing a fair job of own-goaling themselves.  Moderates won elections, but the wack-left is pulling hard...

yes it very much looks like it. Instead of strategically dumping Clinton after the election and looking for a candidate that could pull people in like Sanders did in his primaries run. But that would have been reasonable and strategically sound. Instead they are still looking for russian phantoms and double down. 

 

Really Trumps reelection campaign only needs a few ISO connexes full of fresh MAGA hats to give away and the rest does the Dem campaign for him.  :wacko:

I have no doubt there will be plenty of antics on the right as well.

Which will only help Trump as well.

The electoral map is changing right now. Ohio is now a red state instead of purple. Colorado is now blue. If Beto runs and wins the primary he'll make Texas a battleground state in 2020.

After HRC kneecaps Beto he'll be lucky if he gets a Cabinet Post above ground...  He isn't winning the Primary, she is.

HRC needs to watch Kamala Harris. She has a lot of the right boxes checked...

On the Right, I heard a whisper about Flake trying to pull the Never-Trumpers together.

It is definitely possible she will attempt to run, but there's no way she'd win a primary. She barely scraped it out when it was Bernie. No one would vote for her now. She was only popular with women over 50.

Technically speaking, she already beat him in the popular vote by a couple percentage points, so it would hardly be surprising if she could beat him now. The midterms point to centerists and moderates running to the exists.

That said I don't know of a single democrat leaning voter who go with her in a primary. Or Pelosi as House Speaker for that matter.

The loss of Ohio to the Republicans IS likely seen as a major problem for the Democrats.

A little thing like a primary voters didn't stand in her way last time, just ask Bernie.

 

You will vote for who the party tells you to vote for.

It is non trivial for the Dems if that is a permanent change the electoral map. But in 2020 it seems the fact that Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania swung away from the GOP in their elections is more immediate problem for the GOP.

well Speaker Pelosi is coming

We certainly do live in interesting times.

The 97.8% media tilt against the President and his party is definitely having an effect.

I couldn't help but notice GM's announcement about the "D" return to power...
