It's crazy for them to do this. It doesn't really make sense. There are more democrats in the country than republicans. It is their election to lose, if they can just retain 50% of independant votes they win the election but when they do transparent shit like this and act so irrationally they are just throwing away all those independant votes (mostly rational people) and hell I wouldn't be surprised if you probably end up with even a few registred democrats voting for trump in 2020.
It's amazing that all the Democrats had to do was act less crazy than Trump for 4 years and they couldn't do it. They didn't put forth a single decent piece of legistlation and helped absolutely nobody for 4 years but themselves.
People are tired of the left acting like eliteists and telling everyone else how they should behave and speak at all times. They now view the world in terms of right and wrong in which the side they take is always right, good and just while leaving anyone who disagree's with them as wrong and evil. There is no having a different opinion because if you have one, you are labeled. You're a racist, homophobe, xenophobe etc, if you don't agree with the whole platform from start to finish.
This is smart.
All they had to do was WATCH and POINT OUT CRAZINESS.
Instead they are spending the whole time trying to get him out before his end of term. When getting him out AFTER his term would have been so much easier. Seriously - could they not have just found / decided on one candidate to agree on and push opposing ideas for 3.5 years until the election? And then have a shoe-in?
Instead we have the primaries which only serve to point out each candidates faults. Biden is senile and weird. Sanders is crazy and feeble. Warren is at best boring and at worst unable to put together a rational idea. Everyone else just brings down the 3 front runners.
I think this mishandling of the Trump presidency by the democrats will be studied in political science classes for generations.
