I think it’s safe to say the Democrats drop the ball on just about every important subject. They seem to believe that everyone processes info the way they do and thus write off the "deplorables" as not being interested in understanding the truth so they simply move on.
These people have concerns, which any thinking person knows are false, but Democrats never seem able to show them or teach them why. Of corse, much of thought is hard wired in the brain but the Republicans never drop the ball and are reinforcing their false narrative daily while everyone else just throws up their hands and calls them hopeless.
They are hopeless when you don’t "feed" them reality and if you have to hit them over and over with it - so be it. The republicans didn’t gain total control of politics overnight, they earned it by hard work (and lies) feeding their red meat to their rabid base.
Only yesterday I read (somewhere) that the real reason Trumpy wine the election was older white voters fear of becoming the minority and they know what happens to minorities in this country. They voted for Trumpy out of fear of becoming the people they actually fear the most. I can believe this 100%. I shows why unworldly, undereducated, low information voters in this country constantly vote against their own best interests.
