    "It is not the jobs"

    It is living wages. Even Hillary said wages have been stagnant.

    ""wwjd said: Should the focus first be on beating Donald Trump, then secondary be focus on issues.""

    How do you beat Trump without focusing on the issues?

    Chet, if you look at the present situation in the world, mostly created by Trump and his cronies, then it will be an wonder if the "elections" still matter, because over an year and a half we may be in WWIII, if this idiot is still in power.

    History will tell you that if an President is "cornered" he will make "crazy' decisions, which is the case already.

    Related to the title of this "thread" it will be very difficult to decide what will be the right strategy for the Dem's. The "turmoil" in the world (most of it increased due to meddling of trump and his cronies) will have an big influence on the 2020 elections. I've not seen that any of the candidates is focused on that.

    A lot can change before that time; especially with Venezuela and N. Korea and may be Iran. If our troops get involved then the "voters" may show their feelings about it; especially if their military families are affected.

    Even if there is an "trade deal" which affects China negatively; then the effects will be felt here as well.

    So my question is: Are the "candidates" prepared for this?

    The strategy is really quite simple - vote for your preferred candidate in the primary and then fight light hell for whoever the candidate winds up being in the general.

    I loathe Bernie with every fiber of my being, but if he's the general election nominee then I'll go knock on doors for him as enthusiastically as I would have if Biden, Booker, or Harris were the nominee.

    Jared, sorry the elections are still far away; anything can happen until it is so far. Knocking on doors nowadays may be dangerous and may be you will get an "gun" in your face. (ha ha). I also doubt if the voting will solve the "shit" as it is now, even an Democratic "win" may be hampered a 100% by the Trump Party, so nothing gets done as is now the case. Even the mid-term "win" has until now has not shown any results for Dem's. (McConnell makes sure of that) It seems that only the "courts" can decide outstanding matters, which may take longer than 2020. Right now the Dem's are "powerless" as has been proven, since the Mueller report was available. Thus only if the Dem's show an "backbone" then may be it can improve things a little bit, I hope.

    My point was that there is no "right" strategy in the lead up to the primaries because no primary votes have been cast and the only thing we're relying on is what we see on 24 hour "news" channels.

    There's a couple dozen candidates all running on a platform they think is the right one. Democrats in the various states will then begin choosing which candidate they like the best when the first primaries begin in early 2020. Until then it's just a reality TV contest that will drive you crazy if you spend too much time worrying about it.

    Jared, it is not the candidates which worry me; nor what they say. It is the present and future situation of this country itself which is very worrisome; since Trump is "ruining" this place. The Dow is now already more than 550 points down today. It is an signal, which clearly states that things are moving in the wrong direction. For instance Iran is now thinking to restart building "nukes" (while Obama had created an "stabilized" situation) neither is Venezuela resolved or N.Korea or Israel. Let alone the relation with the EU and "tariffs". The "stonewalling" of the GOP will continue in full force as well. China will not sit still, and accepts Trumps "bullying"; they will also raise "tariffs" ; which will affect the "farmers" again. Etc.etc. Thus Jared, if all of this continues this way, then "platforms" of the candidates don't matter, unless they adjust them every ten minutes.
