Democrats should not even consider the 35% of America that is batshit crazy.

If you ignore them 75% of who's left want Trump impeached. 80% will never vote for him in 2020. Nearly everyone not in the 35% want Roe vs. Wade to stay law. Nearly all want sensible gun control, action on climate change and higher taxes for the rich and for corporations. If they do it right Democrats could, and should, own the 65% of America that is sane. The Repubs have made it Us vs. Them in America. The Dems should embrace this. There are more of Us.

1. I must agree with you

One-third of the country is lost to reason, common sense, and compassion. That's not new, and it's not going to change.

2. 35% is a cult that can never be deprogrammed.

4. It's true

we cannot get them, but they will throw up a roadblock to everything we want to accomplish. And they'll have locked up the judiciary branch by Election Day.

5. Yup. One of the best things was something Hillary took back

Calling them "deplorables". Of course she, like all (then) ranking Democrats don't want to offend anyone, even the most vicious, anti-Democratic racists. Convinced that this will be a good political consideration. And so she apologized of course.

I wish they'd just throw the gauntlet down, establish a line in the sand. You'll reach out yes....but only to the Never Trumpers, the moderate Independents. Those brainwashed into the Cult of the Deplorables are a lost cause.
