Early signs are that the white, educated Republican suburbs are moving toward the Democratic Party in the age of Donald Trump.
If one goes by the elections in New Jersey, Virginia, and now Alabama, that seems the beginning of a trend.
The Democrats need to pursue this, rather than just attack Donald Trump.
They need to emphasize job growth, education, health care, and the dangers to our national security represented by the “bromance” between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, what seems like Russian Collusion.
They need to show that they have a positive program of change, and rally people around the harm to our environment and consumer protection by the Trump Presidency, as well as the harm done with unqualified judicial appointments, and in our diplomacy with other nations.
If the Democrats work to offer alternatives and point out common goals for people of all races, and both genders, they can win the majority in both houses of the Congress, in many state legislatures, and in the gubernatorial races coming up in November 2018.
Virginia House Republicans lost their majority by one vote after a recount in the 94th District! 🙂
A big YEEEEEEHAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tom Steyer, the business leader and philanthropist, who has had ads on TV about impeaching Trump, has a grassroots organization called NextGen America that helped with the victory in Virginia. The group focused on registering and getting out the vote of the â€œNext Generationâ€ of Virginiaâ€™s leaders: those at college campuses around the Commonwealth.
Thanks for that. Southern Liberal. He’s an example of the type of wealthy people I admire – using his money for philanthropy, helping make this world a better place.
