The reason I state Democrats are naïve to reality are due to the following reasons:
1) Even Democrats who hate Trump are enjoying tax relief and the only thing they’re hearing from their leaders is that they want to increase taxes.
2) Even some Democrats believe we lost our military edge under President Obama. They understand peace through strength. President Trump ran on increasing our military readiness and there are plenty of Democrats serving in the military (and veterans), who appreciate his stance.
3) Democrats are understanding more and more that Obama’s foreign policies were horrendous (i.e. Iran Nuclear Deal, Russian reset button, Syrian Red Line, etc.). They’ve been made aware of what went down with the Iran Nuclear Deal (including the downplaying of the payout to Iran of billions of dollars). Trump is making major headway in areas like North Korea and even the most Left of liberals don’t want to duck a nuclear missile.
4) Democrats can’t argue the excellent job growth we’ve experienced under Trump or the skyrocketing stock market. Democrats once used the mantra: “It’s the economy stupid!” and in this case, they’re on the losing side. Our economic growth is outstanding.
5) Most Americans don’t want open borders and that’s not the message they’re getting from Democrats. People might disagree on the policies, but the fact remains that a large percentage of U.S. citizens are concerned about the impact of illegal immigration and don’t feel Democrats are the Party for fixing these problems.
There’s more but I’ll leave it at the above. There’s no telling when it comes to politics how things will eventually shake out but in my opinion, the House will remain strongly with the Republican Party and the Senate will maintain a slight majority thus going completely against historical trends. When it happens, will Democrats finally get the message that they too need a platform other than attacking everyone and everything associated with Trump? I truly don’t have a clue what the Democrat Party stands for anymore when it comes to the things that matter (i.e. economy, infrastructure, national security, etc.). As someone once said: “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”
