    It is a reality that the dems have to deal with. Hopes of demographics saving the party are not going to go well.

    I think the party began relying on demographics too early.

    Things might well change in time, but they thought this was OVER when Obama won.

    I knew the democrats lost their shit when their representatives and the media started to attack actual voters instead of their political rivals. Then they all scratch their heads trying to figure out why they can't change poll numbers. Here's a hint, it isn't a good idea to attack voters when you are looking for votes.

    I'v pointed out that difference to some of them. They can't seem to grasp it. At all.

    If you do not see what he is talking about then you are willfully blind.

    It's not about fondling girls, you twit. ......It's about a transformation of America from a predominantly European country with White Middle-Class Christian values...into a country dominated by Hispanics, Blacks, Muslims, and homosexuals. The funny thing is the party pushing this transformation is being led by a bunch of 70 year old Jewish and Catholic millionaires with a penchant for Pedophilia. They are what they claim hate the most.

    The OP is 100% correct as is Mac.

    What they neglected to bring up is the number 1 reason this has happened------------->identity politics, and victimology! You can not be a victim politically, without an oppressor. The Left has designated white males as the oppressor, and the excuse for everything that is bad politically for the oppressed. All you need do is look back on Google to the last 2 Bush Presidency's along with Reagan, and see how they were characterized by the Left. All 3 of them were called every name that Trump is being called today. For that matter, so was Mcain as he ran against Obama, and so was Romney. The Left has now reaped what they have sown for decades!

    Let us ALL face the reality---------------->the Lefts policies, they can NOT run on!

    Free healthcare to illegals?

    Open borders, or more open borders?

    Pay higher taxes?

    Closed school systems where there is no freedom of choice for minorities?

    And the list goes on!

    So what they have to do is create the atmosphere that these things that help most people are being done for some nefarious reason to unfairly help their boogeyman of choice, and that would be most male Caucasians, then attempt to make their constituents despise the boogeyman, and vote against their own self interest in the attempt to punish said boogeyman!

    Just consider what is obvious to everyone who can think, including the Leftists; and believe it or not, they may lie like hell, but they can think--------------> If you start to work and move up the ladder, when you actually get to the point where you pay more into taxes then you receive back, what percentage of people are going to vote themselves a significant tax HIKE?

    So how do you make it palatable? Tell the people that it is racist, sexist, or homophobic not to pay MORE taxes, and join the woke crowd! Sounds ridiculous when you read it, doesn't it! But that is exactly the method they use as Leftists. And yet, if you read polling, you will notice a significant uptick in Black support for Trump. Numerous polling says this is true, and he is hovering somewhere in the low 20% range. If this is accurate, the Left has already lost, and that is the brutal truth if it becomes fact on election day!

    It’s just hard to see me as white males as some victim of oppression.

    The Left has long used its Oppressed vs. Oppressor template as the foundation of their worldview (while the Right uses Good vs. Evil). That's fine in theory, but at some point along the way they essentially weaponized it. So now they use it as a socio-cultural-political bludgeon, impulsively. I'm not even sure they realize it at this point.
