Democrats
The Democrat Party lost the House in 2010, Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections and President Obama's effectiveness ratings have continued to decline. In 2016 they lost the Presidency to Republican Donald Trump. Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, failed to retain the White House with a similar coalition of young people, women and minority voters that swept Barack Obama into office in 2008. Yet the coalition did not show up in the force needed. The Democrat candidate won the popular vote in reliably blue states (California, Washington, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, etc) as a result of overwhelming majorities in major coastal metropolitan areas like LA, SF, Seattle, NYC, Boston, Washington DC). They failed miserably in the heartland and in other blue states in the rust belt (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin) and lost a total of 30 states giving a landslide electoral college victory to the Republican candidate. The Democrats have lost over 1,000 seats at the national, state and local levels nationwide in the past 7 years. How will Democrats react and rebuild for 2018 & 2020?

Steyer launches second ad in Trump impeachment campaign

11/16/17:

Democrat mega-donor Tom Steyer on Thursday launched an ad targeting the GOP tax-reform legislation, the second ad in his campaign to impeach President Trump. “This president and the Republican Congress are making a bad situation even worse,” Steyer said in a statement. Steyer announced last week that he would pour an additional $10 million into his ‘Need to Impeach’ campaign, bringing his total spend so far to $20 million. In the ad, Steyer slams the Republican plan for taxes as a means to cut taxes for corporations and the wealthy.

“It’s up to all of us to stand up to this president, not just for impeachable offenses, but also to demand a country where everyone has a real chance to succeed,” Steyer says in the ad. “Join us. Your voice matters."
