Demographics still works against Republicans

Increasing Hispanic population, young voters opposing Republican values, women voters leaning Democrat, minority voters

Meanwhile, old white men are dying out

Too late.

The "Democratic" party died years ago. One can debate whether post-Truman or Post-Kennedy but other than that there's no real argument.

It's now "The Democrat Party" with nothing democratic about it wotsoever.

Of course the adherents (lthey cling like snot in one's nose) deny it.....and they will in seconds. Watch the space below.
Democrats fight for truth, justice and the American Way

Younger and Minority Workers Lead Wage Gains as Expansion Ages
Oct. 17, 2019, 8:59 AM

A tightening labor market with U.S. unemployment rate at a 50-year low is starting to result in higher wages for full-time workers, including younger people and minorities whose pay has lagged.

Median weekly earnings for Americans in the third quarter rose 3.6% to $919, outpacing inflation, the U.S. Labor Department reported Wednesday. Earnings for those aged 25 to 54, in their prime working years, rose by 5%, the fastest rate of growth in recent years.

Record-low black unemployment cheered by black activists

“Love him or hate him, this is an incredible economic accomplishment for the President and a tremendous benefit for American blacks,” said Project 21 member Derryck Green.

Along with a reported third straight month of 3.7 percent overall unemployment, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) August jobs report noted that the overall black unemployment rate fell half-a-percent to 5.5 percent. This is the lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded. BLS began reporting employment statistics by race in 1972. And with overall white unemployment at 3.4 percent, it is also the smallest reported gap between the races ever in terms of joblessness. Until recently, the racial employment disparity between blacks and whites has generally held to a 2-1 margin.

...a party that has lurched so far to the left that it looks like they're about to nominate a Communist for President doesn't have much of a future.
The Democratic Party died with the Clinton Presidency. The name may still be the same but the party is long long gone.

I don’t care if people hate the Democratic Party - you’re just stupid if you vote for the GOP. There’s no getting around that.

America Created 266,000 Jobs in November
JOHN CARNEY 6 Dec 2019

The imaginary recession of 2019 is over.

The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs for the month and the unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent, matching the lowest level in 50 years.

Economists had expected the economy to add 180,000 jobs and for unemployment to remain unchanged at 3.6 percent, according to Econoday.

Adding to the picture of strength for the labor market, previous jobs numbers were revised up. September’s figure was revised up by 13,000 to 193,000. October was revised up by 28,000 to 156,000. Together, that adds 41,000 more jobs than previously reported.

Average hourly wages are up 3.14 percent compared with last year, above economist expectations. In manufacturing, the average workweek increased by 0.1 hour to 40.5 hours.

The November hiring surge pushed incomes for Americans higher last month.
by JOHN CARNEY
20 Dec 2019

Incomes rose by half a percentage point in November, above economists’ forecasts and much better than the soft readings in September and October. This was the strongest gain since July, according to data from the Commerce Department on Friday.

Consumer spending rose at a 0.4 percent annual rate last month, led by a jump in spending on big-ticket durable goods like autos and appliances.

The higher spending is not due to rising prices. Inflation, as measured by the Federal Reserve’s preferred price indicator, is still running well below the Fed’s 2 percent target. It came in at just 1.5 percent for November compared with a year ago.

And despite the rise in consumer spending, Americans are saving more. The saving rate edged up to 7.9 percent of after-tax income in November.

Manufacturing Surveys Indicate Growth Returning to U.S. Factories

The U.S. manufacturing sector appears to be regaining its footing, suggesting the beaten-down sector may once again be expanding.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s survey-based index of manufacturing activity soared to 17 in January, up from the weak 0.3 reading in December and well-above forecasts for a reading of 3.0.

Merry Christmas: Retail Sales Grew at Healthy Pace in December

Retail sales rose at a healthy pace in December, a sign that a very healthy U.S. labor market and consumer optimism is continuing to support economic growth.

The Commerce Department said Thursday that retail sales–which measures sales at stores, online, and in restaurants–increased a seasonally adjusted three-tenths of a percentage point in December compared with November to $529.6 billion. That was in line with the consensus forecast.

US-China phase 1 trade deal: Beijing agrees to buy $200 billion in US products
By Michelle Toh, CNN Business
11 hrs ago [Jan 16. 2020]

China has agreed to buy hundreds of billions of dollars worth of products from the United States as part of their "phase one" trade deal.

The agreement signed Wednesday will have Beijing purchase an additional $200 billion of US goods and services over the next two years.

The increase in purchases will be compared to 2017, before the trade war started. China imported over $185 billion in total US goods and services that year.

In exchange, Washington has agreed to reduce tariffs on $120 billion in Chinese products from 15% to 7.5%.

Taken together, the phased purchases by China would result in a dramatic surge in US exports. Total exports to China would increase to over $260 billion in 2020, and roughly $310 billion in 2021 if the deal holds

Okay for one thing, incomes for the poor and middle class were already slightly growing under Obama. The problem with the wage growth under both Obama and Trump is that the growth is still way behind on the cost of living which only goes up each year. The wage growth is essentially useless.

Also, Trump inherited job growth. Obama presided over the longest stretch of job growth in history and Trump is headed toward a recession. And no, the low unemployment numbers have nothing to do with the risk of recession. That’s just stupid. It’s the market that is at stake - not job growth.

Nothing you post is true, why do you do that?

You saying the incomes for the poor and middle class were already growing "SLIGHTLY" under Obama means that even you realize the recovery calls back the term used during the Carter administration, malaise.

U.S. Inflation Rate, $1 in 2014 to 2020
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, today's prices in 2020 are 8.55% higher than average prices since 2014. The U.S. dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 1.38% per year during this period, meaning the real value of a dollar decreased.

In other words, $1 in 2014 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $1.09 in 2020, a difference of $0.09 over 6 years.

The Democrats find themselves with a party divided by a schism so wide I do not see it healing anytime soon. Already there are numerous reports that if Sanders is denied again, they'll just stay home.

Add to that the popularity among the youth of the AOC along with her partners in "crime" Ilhan Omar Rashida Talib and you have a deeply divided party with little or no hope of healing.
The trouble is that black voters are very energized. Also suburban voters are a problem for Republicans. Trump narrowly won Michigan and Pennsylvania. That combination means those states are likely gone.

The left is nonsense and the right just wants to take care of the wealthy. The time for a third party is on the near horizon.
