3. How, then, do we overcome their built-in advantage?

They have their right-wing propaganda machine that has had decades to take root.

Sinclair is the biggest owner of local stations, which it has been steadily buying up since the 90s. According to this article, research has shown that local stations spent more time covering national politics and showed a rightward shift in said coverage after Sinclair acquired them. And it is buying more each year. News 3 in Vegas is my local Sinclair station.

With Fox News still a top player in the MSM, OAN and Newsmax gaining steam, Sinclair-owned TV stations blasting GOP talking points, right-wing religious leaders and radio personalities spewing bile to their big audiences, and Facebook having a serious right-wing disinformation problem that it has not shown an eagerness to confront, is it any wonder we feel we are hearing very little from our Democratic leaders?
