68. The numbers aren't really the issue. It is the alleged cause of the losses.

 

First off, the losses started in 2010. What led up to that? The passing of the ACA. I blame two major factors for those losses - the DNC for abandoning the 50-state strategy, and the progressive wing for contributing to the negative propoganda about it. Then we had the census and redistricting. With the gains in state legislatures, Republicans were able to gerrymander their districts and impose voting restrictions. That caused even further losses. Then you have to consider the constant barrage of negative media about the Democratic Party coming from the right and the left (and Russia)

Anyone who claims that the losses in the past decade have been due to policy is intentionally ignoring the other things going on.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
