Democrats are doubling down on failure

The ones who need to expand their base are Democrats, and they utterly failed to do so. According to that poll, only 2 percent of Americans who voted for Trump regret their votes, while fully 96 percent say it was the right thing to do.

Today just 28 percent of Americans say that the Democratic Party is in touch with the concerns of most Americans today — 10 points behind Trump.

Democrats have made clear their deep-seated contempt for the values of working-class, socially conservative Democrats who left their party in droves last year. The new chairman, Thomas Perez, has announced that pro-life candidates are no longer welcome in the party: “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable.”

Democrats are completely focused on placating their frothing, left-wing, anti-Trump base — and the American heartland thinks these people are insane.
