Getting rid of Donald is my only issue. Policy proposals come in a far distant second.
I just hope we don’t become our own worst enemies a second election in a row.
If there is another perfect storm, it will because the democrats nominate a candidate that, like HC, turns away swing voters in key states. If the democrats pick a good candidate that is not too far from the center, there is high probability that Democrats will not only get a majority of swing voters, but also an above average number of Republicans.
IMO, there is a large percentage of silent Republicans voters who's votes are up for grabs because they do not like Donald Trump. A majority of Republicans are not Trumps Republicans, they recognize that he is corrupt and will always be self-serving 100% of the time. If the Democrats give them a decent candidate that is not to far to the left, centrist republicans will not vote for Trump. I truly believe Trump could be swept out of office in a landslide victory for the Democrats that would go down in history as a massive Republican rejection of their own party's president.
I think would be a mistake for Democrats to feel they need to go as far to the left as Donald Trump is to the right. We don't want a candidate that says "Screw everybody that is not 100% on our team". We do not want a candidate that more-or-less projects an extreme left mirror image of Donald Trump: "Own a gun, then FU. Are pro-life, FU. Didn't like HC in 2016, FU. A Republican, FU".... That kind of messaging works for Donald Trump because his base thinks like that, but that extremism does not work for Democrats, because as a general statement, Democrats are not extremists nor fundamentalists, at least in terms of percentages needed to push a candidate over the top. The real question is where is the current "Sweet Spot" for the next election. Ideally, it would be nominating another Barack Obama; center-left that makes vast majority of Americans feel the future is safe hands. If Barack Obama could run against Trump, it would be a massive, overwhelming, landslide victory.
