WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats are struggling to answer a simple question -- "What's a Democrat?" -- and must do a better job of explaining its core values to voters, according to a task force formed after the party's dismal showing in the 2014 election.
It calls for more financial support and training for state parties in a return to the principles behind the "50-state strategy" promoted by former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who led the DNC from 2005 to 2009. That approach aimed to compete in state and local elections throughout the country, even in states dominated by Republicans.
The final recommendation focuses on voting rights. It supports a constitutional amendment to enshrine the right to vote and attempts in Congress to restore portions of the Voting Rights Act. The Supreme Court in 2013 removed from federal law an effective tool for fighting voting discrimination under the act and Democrats have tried to restore those protections.

Core value - find a way to hoodwink more voters.
They simply need more foreign donors.
Hillary is on to something.
The ‘RATS’ “core values” are easy to understand. DESTROY America, Americans AND EVERYTHING THAT IS AMERICAN.
“What’s a Democrat?”
That’s a pickpocket who operates under the color of law.
I can see where that would be a challenge.
There are two main core values of the Democrats. They hate America and they hate Jesus. The rest of their filthy philosophy derives from those two hates.
Easy answer. A democrat is a totalitarian leftist in denial.
But MOST IMPORTANT of all is that it is NOT Republican because being Republican is evil
Anyone willing to suspend attention to reality to pursue a socialist agenda.
I have a great definition, Organized pickpockets, and Charlatans.
Whats a Democrat?
They just try to hide it
Want bigger more intrusive government
capitulate to terrorism
smaller weaker military
no states rights
no local say in anything
federal government runs and dictates everything from washington
anti any energy that works or is affordable
animals have more rights than people.
earth is more important than people.
rich people are evil
capitalism is bad
communism is great
followers are Jesus are weird, stupid and dangerous.
want to take guns away from everyone except terrorists
foreigners allowed to vote in us elections
foreigners allowed to collect welfare along with everyone else but the 1% who pay for it all
that's just off the top of my head, the democrats stand for A LOT of stuff!
You can’t explain what u don’t have
Obviously. That goes without saying...
Not much different than Lucifer whining about how how he ought to be co-equal to God and then resentfully raging in perpetuity when it doesn't (and can't) happen.
Free stuff for the masses until the wealth built up by the capitalists is depleted. Then the Government takes control of what remains and manages it accordingly. Then the disbanding of all opposition parties, five year plans, etc. What a novel idea. /s
What’s a Democrat? They are people who believe in a BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALISTIC STATE.
The one true core value for Democrats is Power. It’s what they crave, it’s what they need, and it what’s they believe they deserve. The rest of all the issues listed by others here are means to an end because each issue has an identified voting block. The reason they struggle against the US and it’s ideals from the founding is that those ideals block their power. To control America, first they must destroy it.
Feminists, pedophiles, illegals, cross-dressers, and gas.
Overlap is considered a plus.
How DOES one explain a huge BLACK HOLE where a soul should be? ;)
