- In many cases, Democratic candidates are "self-selected, 'unvetted'", inexperienced and ignorant of issues and process.
- More often than not, Democratic candidates get no financial support from local, county or state organizations and are left to run self-financed,
ineffectual, shoe-string campaigns.
- During the Florida elections, some Democratic congressional candidates were asked to pay $2,500 for a CD of registered voters.
Had the CD been provided FREE, candidates would have had $2,500 to spend on other campaign needs!
- Because some candidates get no party support, they campaign by their own rules, sometimes having to ask for —
and receiving! — support from Republicans, potentially compromising their support of core Democratic policies.
- Candidates get no technical, social media or strategic support from Democratic organizations.
Joe and Kamala Winning the 2020 Election?
- Just like most candidates, a significant number of Democratic Executive Committees and Caucuses receive no significant support
of any kind from state or national organizations. When they do, it's usually too late to be of any consequence.
- Often, the leaders of these organizations, whether inexperienced or incompetent, are left to their own devices, without the necessary guidance
to mentor inexperienced, self-selected candidates running in red areas where the old methods don't work.
- Worst of all, in some instances, leaders in vital areas are chosen on a personality or pliability
basis — instead of competency, experience and dedication. Personality alone does not help win elections — experience and dedication
- In fact, complaints about party leaders who run their groups as their personal fiefdoms, alienating other officers and volunteers
in the process, abound.
A good thing! Our nation will get a well-deserved respite from the Trump-sown
madness of the last four years. Our allies are beaming.
Forgetting about Donald Trump's 74 million voters? A grave mistake!
The electoral victories Democrats required to effect the reforms necessary to protect our Democratic Republic will depend on Democrats' ability to
wrest a sizable share of the 47%
from Trump's, so-called, base.
In addition, to convince a significant a share of Trumps' 47%
to join our ranks, many Democrats will have to exercise great discretion, avoid
"wedge-issues" and hone in on a group of voters which, unlike millions of Democrats, votes!
Of course, the foregoing will require extreme self-discipline.
