The only way Trump wins is as the Devil 👿 you know.

Excluding actual voter count manipulation by Russians or others, Trump canít win a fair election this time. Heís just too toxic to too many people.

He canít win.
But, we can lose it.
The only thing that makes us lose is if our nominee is painted as a bad person or nearly as bad as Trump is and some people in a few key states stay home or go with ďthe Devil they knowĒ.

Thatís why I am taking a very different view of our primaries this time.
Usually, I want our nominee to take all incoming heat to be totally vetted and battle tested for the general election.
But, not this time. I actually want our candidates to take a little gentler approach. They canít be as battered as Hillary was in 2016 and we have to have a rousing fully throated unified convention in Milwaukee next July.
I want our nominee to be someone that 55-60% of the country will be proud and happy to vote for.
A landslide at the Prez level would humiliate Trump and also mean taking the Senate.

So, yes, bring up a candidates voting record to make contrasts and comparisons on the issues.
But, please candidates, make no personal attacks and be careful with your tone when criticizing a fellow Dem. This election may decide the future of our democracy.
Always keep that uppermost in your minds.

1. Yes.

 

The race thing only benefits the primary candidates using it. No 'vetting' advantage at all.

2. I keep ringing that bell. Democrats should stop believing that now

 

is the time to pursue a far left agenda, because Trump is so toxic. No, now is not the time to promise a "tax and spend," agenda that is doomed to failure. When you run on a platform that has all these new plans...and shamelessly pander to one group of voters, voters will either not vote for president or vote for the devil they know.
