Which is pretty astounding considering nobody really knew who he was.  He also won Michigan and Wisconsin against Hillary.  That alone should of been a huge red flag for Hillary not to take them for granted.  Again, her judgement was awful during the campaign.

 

The Dems HAVE to go that direction and push the party to the left like the Tea Party pushed the GOP to the right.  They're the minority in every level of government, but instead of looking themselves in the mirror they're blaming Russia for why the lost.  Also, the playbook Bernie used of not taking money from Wall Street or corporations but from individual donations will be key to whoever runs.  You're going to need a populist on the left to beat a populist on the right.

 

i didn't believe it was serious for one second, but those in my life supporting Sanders were very serious (even in Canada.)

 

I think I may have sent $10 just to mess up Hillary.

"The Democratic National Committee reported its worst April of fundraising since 2009..."
 
"... according to Federal Election Commission records released Monday."
[T]he drop in donations coincides with an effort by DNC Chair Tom Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to rally support for the party. The two traveled the country on a "unity tour."

The DNC raised $4.7 million in April. Meanwhile, the RNC raised $9.6 million in April. The RNC has $41 million cash on hand. and the DNC $8.8 million.

 

But Trump's in trouble.

 

Wait for those midterms.

 

The Dems will flip the House and the Senate.

 

That's what I read in the MSM.

25 of the 33 Senators aren't GOP in 2018 elections. That's very very hard for the others to make a big move. More likely the GOP gains.

Regarding the fund raising and cash on hand, you also have to consider that the Republican party holds the Presidency, Senate, House, the majority of Governorships, and the bulk of state Legistlatures.  Consider a year ago at this time the Democrats were running circles around Republicans in fund raising with a Democratic President, an inevitable Democratic nominee, and the punditry predicting a Democratic takeover of the Senate

 

 

How much of that advantage is money following power?

Liberal talk without holding political office is a sunk cost for donations.  There's nothing to cling to and it's becomes a bloodbath when they lose.

the 2020 election could shift everything rapidly back to the democrats. It'll be interesting as it is likely to happen. Hopefully the GOP doesn't go Reid and !@#$ themselves

Which will probably be the last true elections the country has, after the Democrats ban the Republican party as a hate group.

Not sure how the Senate elections stack up in 2020, a bit too far down the road when November 2018 will seem to take 10,000 years to get here.

there is a slim to one chance that trump retains the presidency.
