I think I am going to start using the term “progressive” instead of “democrat” going forward. I’ve almost given up hope on the democrats. Can progressives look at Lichtman’s data and formulate a plan to dismantle the republican trifecta? I don’t think the democrats have the ability to get out of their own way. The new DNC chair nomination/election was their first chance to send a message that things are going to change in their approach. Well…they sent a message….more of the same.
