Short answer

A friend of mine recently asked what’s wrong with Democrats?  I took that to mean, why can’t they get their s#%* together.  

Here’s the answer at The Atlantic. 

The book that predicted Trump’s rise offers a roadmap for defeating him. 

Short answer: the left ignores the unemployed and trailer trash because they’re not part of a stigmatized group. In order to win again, they have to relearn how to talk about money. 

Very good article. Maybe not the whole picture but pretty close.
