The Democratic Party remains on the verge of collapse

July 22, 2017

Hell yeah, it’s on life-support right now … and looking forward to the day this DemoCommiecrat party is buried in the grave of history!

You don’t need to be a genius to see that the Democratic Party doesn’t really stand for anything when it comes to the issues that matter most to U.S. voters. This is a topic I’ve written about incessantly since last year’s embarrassing loss by status quo, corporate media, donor-favorite Hillary Clinton, and it was highlighted once again in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll with the response to the following question.

Despite the dire implications of the above, the brain-surgeons leading the party remain committed to running on “Trump works for Putin, let’s start a war with Russia” while ignoring the multitude of very important issues people really care about — you know, like oligarchy and increasing economic insecurity.

To give you a sense of the degree of cluelessness, read the following excerpts from a CBS News article titled, Democrats Split Over Core Message to Voters as 2018 Midterms Loom:

NEW YORK — House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley hesitated when asked about his party’s core message to voters.

“That message is being worked on,” the New York congressman said in an interview this past week. “We’re doing everything we can to simplify it, but at the same time provide the meat behind it as well. So that’s coming together now.”

The admission from the No. 4 House Democrat – that his party lacks a clear, core message even amid Republican disarray – highlights the Democrats’ dilemma eight months after President Donald Trump and the GOP dominated last fall’s elections, in part, because Democrats lacked a consistent message.

That’s not exactly true. Democrats have consistently been yelling about Russia, and it’s not doing them any favors.

The soul-searching comes as Democrats look to flip at least 24 GOP-held seats necessary for a House majority and cut into Republican advantages in U.S. statehouses in the 2018 midterm elections. Yet with a Russia scandal engulfing the White House, a historically unpopular health-care plan wrenching Capitol Hill and no major GOP legislative achievement, Democrats are still struggling to tell voters what their party stands for. 

For now, at least, Democrats are waging a tug-of-war largely between the Russia investigation and the GOP’s attempts to gut the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

Notice what’s not on the list. Oligarchy, Wall Street crime, imperial wars or unconstitutional police state surveillance.

Now here’s the most clueless thing you’ll read all day.

“We need to be talking about impeachment constantly,” said Scott Dworkin, co-founder of the recently formed Democratic Coalition Against Trump. He warned on Twitter, “If you’re an elected Dem & you’re not talking impeachment or 25th amendment then find a new party.

Great advice, I suggest people take it. 

Meanwhile, in case you still don’t grasp the contempt with which most Americans view corporate Democrats, a new poll from Bloomberg shows Hillary Clinton is now less popular than Donald Trump. But keep doubling down on a losing strategy Dems, your big money donors demand it.

From Bloomberg:

For a president with historically low poll numbers, Donald Trump can at least find solace in this: Hillary Clinton is doing worse.

Trump’s 2016 Democratic rival is viewed favorably by just 39 percent of Americans in the latest Bloomberg National Poll, two points lower than the president. It’s the second-lowest score for Clinton since the poll started tracking her in September 2009.

The former secretary of state has always been a polarizing figure, but this survey shows she’s even lost popularity among those who voted for her in November.

More than a fifth of Clinton voters say they have an unfavorable view of her. By comparison, just 8 percent of likely Clinton voters felt that way in the final Bloomberg poll before the election, and just 6 percent of Trump’s voters now say they view him unfavorably.

Instead, their comments often reflected the ongoing angst among Democrats about how best to position themselves against Trump and Republicans in 2018 and beyond. Many said they wished Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont had won the Democratic nomination, or that they never liked Clinton and only voted for her because she was the lesser of two bad choices.

Looking forward to 2018, we need to see the midterm election in historical context. As such, typical opposition party gains combined with the high unpopularity of Donald Trump, means our base case scenario should be to expect a huge sweeping win for Democrats throughout Congress. Anything short of this will be considered a total failure, and from my seat, there’s a good chance Democrat gains may disappoint. If so, the party will have nothing and no one to blame but itself — it is truly self-destructing before our very eyes.

Finally, I want to end with excerpts from a excellent interview by David Sirota of the Russian activist group Pussy Riot. It’s fascinating to see how it often takes overseas observers to accurately analyze our own collective madness.
