Democrats are supposed to be fighting back, but they just keep losing (Schadenfreude alert)

Donald Trump may be off to the worst start in presidential history, but recent polls and election results show Democrats are even more unpopular than he is. What’s wrong with the Democrats?

Recently I ran into a Democratic operative who was adamant that his dispirited party’s stock is rising.

It’s looking good, for example, that with all Trump’s troubles, the donkey party finally will win enough seats in special elections this fall to take control of our state’s Legislature from the Republicans.

“If Democrats can’t win this year,” he vowed, “we should be abolished as a political party.”

Might not be as far-fetched as it sounds.....

They could replace the Democrat party with the GOPe...and no one would notice the difference.

Maybe it’s because most folks aren’t buying the crap they’re selling.

Lord o' mercy, Danny boy. Haven't you heard that's the demonicRATS' strategy to regain power?

DailyCaller.com: DemonicRATS agree that losing in Montana is actually a win

Dumbos nude singing cowboy just lost in Montana.

Heck, Dumbos just lost in Omaha---the race that got caught in the abortion debate.

DNC Perez recently declared abortion-on-demand is Democrats' ticket to victory.

So if that's not working, it figures desperate Dems might be looking at infanticide....perhaps mercy killing of the disabled...... for winning issues.

============================================

In Kansas couple weeks ago, Repub Estes won by a commanding eight points; then Dumbo Ossoff in GA failed to prevent a runoff...even after every prog/Dumbo and his second cousin from East Overshoe, USA, gave Ossoff some 10 million dollars.

Earlier Democrats lost again b/c they failed to flip Zero Seats in Four Blue State Special Elections. Those total Democrat humiliations by the Russians occurred right after DNC genius Tom Perez bragged Democrats would show that that "resistance to Trump" could be translated into electoral victories.

To add insult to injury, the Minnesota, Connecticut, Virginia Democrat losses are the states the Russians threw to Hillary in the 2016 presidential election.

Go figure.

democrat party is in a real bind if they try and deal with being a minority party there base will attack siting senators and reps in the primary removing them and replacing them with big time radicals. if they get as radical as the base wants them to be they lose most voters who are not party loyalists. I think that the democrat party really wont wake up to its destruction till after the loses they will suffer in 2018.

at the moment the community leaders who run the base are trying to use the model that the tea party used to win elections in 2010 after are loss in 2008. there big problem is that the republicans came up with issues to challenge Obama on and were real carful to not show hostilities to those who voted for Obama. we warned the left about how bad the policies were and voiced are opposition but we did not attack his authority to take us down the path he did. the tea party was all about changing the republican party for the better. the democrats there protest is all about trying to steal authority from the president and most of America sees it for what it is.

While the Republicans may be incompetent, the Dems are deranged.

Hahaha. I laugh at their lamentations and at their unrivaled lunacy.

There is still a big difference between the RATs and the GOP.

And the voters prefer Incompetent to Deranged by nine points in terms of “favorability” whatever that is. An article that gives me great joy.

That is because their policies lead to death and destruction. The only place this plays well is in major cities, most of which have been destroyed by the left.

Perhaps “we hate you and want you to die” isn’t the most compelling political platform.
