Remember when Democrats predicted the imminent decline of the GOP?
The theory was that Republicans were so out of touch with women and ethnic minorities that they would soon be relegated to the status of a “permanent minority” — supported only by Southern white men and incapable of recapturing the White House.
Donald Trump’s victory has put an end to this fantasy. Now it’s the Democrats who are facing their own “doomsday” scenario.
A recent analysis conducted by Third Way — a self-described “centrist” think tank — argues that Democrats are evolving into a “coastal” party. They have strong bases in California, New York and Massachusetts but are slowly ceding the rest of the country to Republicans.
Third Way compared 2016 election results in the two areas and found an astounding asymmetry:
In California, New York and Massachusetts, home to roughly 24 million voters, voters chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a large margin, 65% to 35%.
But in the remaining 47 states, home to 105 million voters, voters broke for Trump by a decisive 52% to 48% margin.
The geographic concentration of the pro-Hillary vote is one reason Clinton’s supposed popular vote “victory” rings so hollow. Clinton ran up the score in a liberal state like California, where she bested Trump by some 4.3 million votes.
But that single-state advantage is simply not reflective of the broader national pattern, which favored Trump, Third Way found.
Recent voting patterns in Congress point to another disastrous trend for Democrats: They are fast becoming a “two-region” party.
Extremism of _any_ faction will so quickly become tyranny as to be almost instantaneous

As long as the DEMs collectively continue to be uncooperative, obstructive and disruptive, the more difficult it becomes for their silly voters (even some aspects of the media) to justify their actions. Engaging in 'planned' chaos is not gathering ANY genuine support. The DEMs are even refusing to acknowledge that their party was indeed repudiated during the midterms and finally presidential election. The DEMs are dwindling into the powerless political abyss. No amount of spin is going to change that. More moderate DEM voters are beginning to question the lunatic tactics of their party.
The newly organized violent lunatics have a specific goal with a strategy to incite property damaging chaos whenever they gather. They will have the corrupt media covering the whole contrived event. They're trying to create the perception of America being totally ungovernable and Trump is the reason everything is spinning out of control. These crazy malcontents are deadly vicious. However,........
.........It just won't work. They will only succeed at making the DEM party almost totally irrelevant.
DARN Only "almost"???????
I say 'almost' because at times they look like they're finished and at other times they seem only to appear like CANCER in remission. You never know if/when it will return. UGH!
We can hope it will be two-region party, but Demos seem to have way to recover from anything. Money talks and their top 10 funders will cough up billions to save them.
i guess the democrats didn't learn from the past . from 1860-1912 there wasn't a president from the democratic party. the democratic party was largely relegated to a party of the south
I just read an article that stated that the liberals are very global and without that the solid base from yesteryear is gone. The end being global and take down capitalism. Seems extreme but Obama had it started. Said the protests or riots will increase and get more violent.
