    The Democratic Party Is Killing Itself

    This article only tells part of the story. The hate for Ice and hate for Christianity shown for Trump nominees is been seen as extreme.The socialist democrats are gaining strength which will leave the old democrat party a choice to move with them or separate the parties.

    These issues are going to hurt the democrats in November

    What does America’s political climate bode for us in the next 25-50 years? What if I told you the Democratic Party will fracture into multiple parties and the Republican Party will grow stronger? And what if I said changing demographics and the normalization of identity politics would be the reason?

    The Democratic Party has redoubled its embrace of identity politics. Whether it be Mexican-American, African-American, Chinese-American, Muslim-American or any of the two-dozen hyphenated American groups out there, these ethno-religious-cultural groups have by and large used the Democratic Party to further their group interests. Why wouldn’t they? Human beings are tribal creatures and more often than not flock to those who act like them, speak like them, pray like them, and, yes, look like them.

    As America’s non-Hispanic White population shrinks due to the influx of non-European immigration and low white birth rates, cultural enclaves have begun to form all over the nation. Starting in the late 1960s and accelerating over the past decade, the Democratic Party has abandoned its traditional base of working-class white voters to embrace minority immigrant groups. Although this has boded well for them in places like California, it won’t last.

    Growing Republican Support

    Working-class white voters feel abandoned by the Democratic Party. The party went from a platform of being center-left economically and socially/culturally conservative to a platform that is far to the left economically and socially/culturally degenerate. Consider how the South went from blue to red in the 1990s, as Southern Evangelicals embraced the Republican Party platform.


    Something similar is happening in the Rust Belt. Compare Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the 2008 and 2012 elections with the outcome in 2016. All three “blue wall” states voted for Trump, shocking the nation. But was it really so astounding? Those states have been electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate (Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey and Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson), the House (nine out of 15 seats in Michigan, five out of eight seats in Wisconsin, and 10 out of 18 seats in Pennsylvania are Republican), state legislatures (Republican majorities in all three states) and to their governor’s offices (Michigan’s Rick Snyder and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker).

    The red shift didn’t occur because people suddenly became Koch brothers-loving investors who want to grow their portfolio and bring in cheap foreign labor. It’s because the Republican Party is changing to reflect the interests of the white working class in these states. This solidified after Trump’s election in 2016. And why not? As the Democrats’ political rhetoric and policy proposals have become more explicitly anti-white and socialistic, naturally white voters will look for a political home elsewhere.

    The Republican Party is already dead. It has become the Party of Trumpism, and their ONLY organizing principle is loyalty to the person of Donald Trump.

    Senator Bob Corker said the Republicans in Congress have become craven, have become cowards, too "afraid to poke the bear".


    Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan are all turning over in their graves at what you jerks have done to their Grand Old Party.

    People say a lot of things. What matters is the power a party holds in the country, and democrats have lost a lot of ground.

    Yet Trump's poll numbers keep getting better. Watch his appearances like the one in Montana tonight. He still is speaking to an over flowing crowd no matter where he goes. The democrats hate and move to the far left socialism will not win elections

    Bullshit. Trump's low numbers are virtually unchanged since you posted Rasmussen poll numbers a year ago.

    Republicans are worried. They don't know how big the shift will be...not if a shift happens.

    Enjoy your Republican House, Republican Senate and president that could not get together and pass more than just one bill. The only reason that bill made it to law is it was to give unprecedented massive tax giveaways to the Rich. Well done ...do-nothing Republicans.

    You can't even tell the truth anymore. You are a liar if you say you didn't make a thread using Rasmussen's polling about a year ago...and that poll's numbers at the time are almost exactly what Trump's numbers are right now.

    Deny that is not the truth.
