    Actually, you are dead wrong on this, Dean.

    Most of the states that hold primaries have OPEN primaries that allow citizens regardless of party affiliation to cast a ballot.

    Appealing to crossover voters could be the key to victory in many states.

    I don’t know if it works that way. I’ld have to look it up. I do know Democrats have open primaries which is how they get Bernie Sanders who is not a Democrat. But I believe Republicans only let Republicans vote.

    But I do know that using Pocahontas, Native American heroine, as a punchline is fuking racist and terrible and so disrespectful.

    Because of the sizable Fox audience and the need of the candidates to get over with Crossover voters. States with open primaries will be welcoming Republicans and independents to cast ballots next year and appealing to those people will be essential.

    Fox viewers do not vote for Democrats

    Better to go on a legitimate network

    Actually, Fox has both liberal and conservative broadcasters, they are pretty open minded with libs like Shep Smith, Juan Williams and Whoraldo Rivera on the air.

    In addition, reaching possibly Crossover Voters in next year's Democrat Primaries could be a key to victory. Even if the Republicans won't vote for them in the general election in November, getting them onboard for the primaries would help move the Democrats toward the center and help keep it respectable next year. I'm really concerned that the Democrat Party might destroy itself and blow up our entire 2 party system in America.

    Well I say don’t bother with them until the general election. Then during the general election you can present both sides of an issue.

    When Democrats actually show what democratic policies are and don’t allow Republicans to lie and define imaginary democratic policies, their GOP base will tend to vote Democrat.

    Right now, most Republicans vote trump because he’s white. And most are racist. And even though most Republicans are racist they still care about their families. They want their kids to have healthcare. At least some of them do.
