The significant loss of House seats by the Dems must not be ignored.
We have to reconcile what is happening around the country versus the Trump-thing’s own self-destruction. The latter is not hard to understand.
The success of the GOP at taking House seats tells me that the Democratic party has a brand issue that is probably not able to be undone.
It doesn’t matter that Trump is a malicious idiot. That’s not the issue at hand here.
Rather, that people in rural areas now see the Democratic party as the enemy. And even a tool of Satan.
Such beliefs don’t go away. People keep them until they die.
