One would think the way the left and media rails against President Donald Trump and the GOP in Congress the Democratic Party would be prepared to go into 2018 and make dents in Capital Hill. It helps that GOP donors have decided to withhold funds after the Obamacare debacle.

Nope. In Politico,...

The lesson Democrats appear to have learned from losing to Donald Trump is that they need to move further to the left.

We see that in the roll-out of a pathetic new slogan focusing on language invoking FDR’s New Deal. As first reported by Jeff Stein at Vox, the slogan is …...

Polling this far out from the mid-term elections in November 2018 is just guesswork.

In the aftermath of four Special Election defeats, including a devastating loss in Georgia’s Sixth District, Democrats are trying to figure out where it all went wrong.

Democrats were expecting anti-Trump *Resistance* to be enough. But it wasn’t. It’s not that focusing intently on the opposing party’s leader doesn’t work anymore. It’s...

I predicted that the shenanigans used to lift-up the weak primary campaign of Hillary Clinton against her grassroots challenger, Bernie Sanders, would impact the Democratic Party for some time to come.

Those chickens are now coming home to roost!
