Normally, after suffering humiliating election upsets, political parties revert to square one and spend a considerable amount of time rebranding themselves.
Many readers likely recall the massive PR change in 2008 after the Republican Party lost virtually all influence with the election of Barack Obama. Realizing that its outreach among minority communities was lackluster at best among a myriad of other issues, the GOP began employing people like Michael Steele, a black conservative, as a way to mend some its wounds.
Coupled with heightened grassroots activism in 2010, the Republican Party boasted a coalition that still holds strong in many parts of the country.
Now, two years after Hillary Clinton lost handily to now-President Donald Trump, the Democratic Party seems fixed on doing precisely the opposite. Instead of fronting new thought leaders, they’re relying on old ones, and are doubling down on their intersectionality push — the very philosophy that jeopardized its reputation as the party of the working man.
If a porn star making unverified accounts of certain activities which occurred ten years prior is the best the Democrats can do, President Trump and Republican in Congress likely have little to worry about in the coming election years.
