9. Preference overpowers and destroys turnout

The two aren't remotely comparable. I'll take the tilt of the nation every time and let every volunteer sit on the couch, while the other side knocks on every door every day.

IMO, college campus registration drives should have been our utmost priority since Day 1 of the Trump administration. The long term gain is huge, and beyond anything we can manage by whining about this or that. When the other side has a president with approval rating in the 30s, no thinking is necessary. Register the youth. Lock 'em up. If we don't understand that we don't understand much of anything.

Situational variables decide most elections. But secondary during each election cycle the key are messaging and messengers. At this point I still don't know what our themes will be. Anything negative toward Trump is mostly a waste. I'll scream if we go that route. Those numbers are already cemented. We need something that attracts single women, since that block historically betrays us and stays home during midterms.

I assume health care will be a focus but it needs to be done with a terrific short memorable slogan, and not the pathetic ones we normally come up with.
