    They had a slam-dunk in VA and blew that. I firmly believe that the Ds are the JV team of organized crime but they have become a national disgrace that makes the US look like a budding Zimbabwe or Venezuela. The Ds used to be able to buy or steal their way to victory in at least a few contested seats but increasingly they are losing gimmes like the 2016 presidential election and the VA governor's race, what is going on?

    Without their American masks they are being recognized as unacceptable, and prone to tantrums.

    Yeah but we need a functioning opposition party to keep the Rs honest. McCain, Flake and many other Republicans campaign on the principle that they are not as crooked as their D opponents. That is not good enough.

    The Democrat party is going to be replaced by the socialist party. So that's Sanders and Warren.
    They are going the way of the White and the Federalist. The party is already split.

    The thing is Obama started this polarized crap but it did not end when he left! It's running it's natural course and it won't stop until BOTH sides are at their limit. That's why the left keeps moving left. And the right will move more right. Pence in 2024 is more right agreed?

    Pence will be the center of the GOP about the same time Warren is the center of the left. There simply no longer will be a middle.

    Except the middle is where most Americans are. I'm socially liberal but fiscally conservative. I'm not a populist or nationalist so currently I'm stuck with the Dems. If the GOP can shed the Trump RINOs I may have another option but until then...

    I hope you are wrong but suspect you are right.
