How to Flip the South–State By State

Sure, I’ve posted videos today talking about how to win over Trump’s base and exploring why poor Southerners vote Republican, but how do we flip each state from red to blue? Here are at least some answers, ranking each state from “most flippable” to “hopeless.” Disqualified: Virginia and Oklahoma. Virginia is disqualified not because it isn’t part of the Southeast–it… Read More »

How Do Democrats Lose?

How do Democrats lose? Alabama Liberal explains how Democrats take a big issue and make it small while Republicans take a small issue and make it big.

Twelve Painful Truths Democrats Must Accept to Rebuild the Party

I don’t want to sugarcoat it: the Democratic Party is in trouble. It is at its lowest level since the late 1920’s and possibly even worse than that when you consider Hawaii (one of only three states including Rhode Island and Delaware where Democrats control the state legislature trifecta and all congressional representation) wasn’t yet a state at that time.… Read More »

And No, Hillary’s Campaign Wasn’t Bad

Aside from the myth that Bernie could’ve won, we also hear that Hillary’s campaign was bad. This is the second persistent myth that basically lets the American voter (and the media) off the hook.

Grading Trump’s Potential 2020 Challengers…

If Trump actually does become the 45th President of the United States (and I hope not, AuditTheVote), then he’ll become the least popular incoming President in history. His approval numbers are now more unfavorable than favorable, a rarity for a first-term president who hasn’t even taken office yet. The race for The White House will… Read More »

We’ve heard the same tired lines about the Democratic primary for months: “Well, no matter who wins the primary” as if there’s any doubt Hillary will “they’ll need each other’s fans.” And now that we’ve seen Bernie’s chances of winning winnow down to zero, the more specific “Hillary will need to appeal to his fans… Read More »

Another Day, Another Dem Debate (But No Dollars)

6:02–It took me a minute to find what channel PBS is. 6:03–It looks like a Bernie crowd, he got slightly more enthusiastic applause than she did. 6:06–Bernie’s opening speech is seemingly endless. He’s talked for several minutes straight. Might wear himself out by the end of this. He talked too long in his New Hampshire… Read More »

Live-Blogging Yet ANOTHER Goddamn Debate…

6:15…Sorry I’m coming to the party late, but this Democratic debate was something of a surprise to me. Especially since they just had a “Town Hall” last night… 6:17…Hillary came to play today. 6:17…Goes after Bernie by saying “he doesn’t think Obama, Biden, me, or anyone else in congress is progressive enough. Who’s left?” 6:20…Rachel… Read More »
