Mitt's turn as Reek in GoT doesn't get enough awards recognition.

The number of child rapists associated with Trump is growing at an alarming rate

Calling him a moronic embarrassment isn't nearly strong enough.

I refer once again to depressed African-American voter turnout in Milwaukee in 2016.

I'm pretty sure this piece was posted upthread, but it's not the worst thing to consider it again.

We would hardly urge Democratic strategists to abandon Obama-to-Trump voters. However, Obama-to-nonvoters are a relatively liberal segment of the country who have largely been ignored. They are mostly young and nonwhite, and they represent an important part of the Democratic Party’s demographic future.

So who were the Obama-to-nonvoters? Fifty-one percent were people of color, compared with 16 percent of Obama-to-Trump voters and 34 percent of Obama-to-Clinton voters. Twenty-three percent of Obama-to-nonvoters were under 30, compared with 11 percent of Obama-to-Trump voters and 10 percent of Obama-to-Clinton voters. More than 60 percent of Obama-to-nonvoters make less than $50,000 a year, compared with 45 percent of Obama-to-Clinton voters and 52 percent of Obama-to-Trump voters.

Democratic strategists should recognize that Obama-to-Trump voters do not represent the future of their party. Obama-to-Trump voters diverge from the Democratic Party on many core issues, and in any case they are not particularly loyal Democrats.... In stark contrast, Obama-to-nonvoters share the progressive policy priorities of Democrats, and they strongly identify with the Democratic Party.

This is my (yeah, I know...repeatedly stated) preference for DNC/campaign ground game efforts:
Whether Democrats can mobilize these voters is an open question, however. Significantly, only 43 percent of Obama-to-nonvoters reported being contacted by a candidate in 2016, compared with 66 percent of Obama-to-Clinton voters.

I can't speak to the mindset of the Democrats at the national level, but in Colorado that type of voter is precisely who is being targeted by organized Dem GOTV groups, and the voter database that Dems (and probably Republicans/Russians) have is pretty powerful. IMO the Clinton campaign went out of their way to disenfranchise and ignore that voting block.

More so than most everything else he has done, that video really bothers me. His complete detachment and lack of empathy for someone stating that her family was murdered and thrown in mass graves is so unsettling.

I say "sadly" because doing that normalized Duke as a regular candidate. Attacking his generic character or bill paying habits (or even discussing his inadequate plans for job creation, etc) treated him like a normal candidate. But he was/is a NAZI...

Agreed with all of that, but also have no problem with the Dem candidates talking policy at this point to try and distinguish themselves from the other Dem candidates. They aren't going up against Trump yet. When they do, agree that the conversation should shift.

Trump is going to continue to hammer on those poor women because he knows they scare White Eastern/midwestern older people who vote. Meanwhile, he and the GOP are going to cut social security and medicare and the idiots will never see it coming. He's going to kill the middle class and those people will be thanking him for standing up for "American" values while they go bankrupt paying for health care.
