Why can't the Democrats put up a viable candidate in any election outside of their strongholds?


An opportunity for the Democrats to gain ground in Congress, came and went yesterday, with upstart Jon Ossoff failing to reach the threshold to win a runoff in Georgia for a House seat. This comes on the heels of other special election losses such as the one recently in Kansas. Even with many people disagreeing with the President, it seems as if the Republican brand is currently favorable in the eyes of voters. What will it take for Democrats to change course?

    Russians ATTEMPTED to influence the election and BARELY succeeded with the combined help of HYPED right-wing, alt-right AND 'leftist' misogyny & fake news that included Comey. They're all in bed together & I do find that downright hilarious!

    Dem policies R mediocre. They went out of their way to prevent 'too far left' Bernie from hijacking their party like Trump was able to hijack GOP. Plus GOP voters R FAR more loyal cuz they want abortion GONE - even so, many couldn't vote Trump.
