53. What brought the Democrats to their best yrs was FDR's message that we'd take care of poor people.

Today in America poor people don't look as poor, but they have the same minimal hopes for improving their lives. Few of those people in the 30s voted for Hoover. Why in hell did they vote for trump??

Clearly we missed the message. Candidates who can connect with the downtrodden are going to be winners if you can get the downtrodden and the middles to vote their best interest.

Hate to say it but our leaders in congress are Nancy P, 77, and D Feinstein, 84, not exactly our best voices for the gaining youth vote. Who's poor? Young people! Give them healthcare! Say it's a RIGHT! LEAD!
Quit nibbling away at the edges and dive in!
