Democrats’ Disappearing Act: County Election Results Show Shrinking Party
It’s only been 3 weeks, but the Election Night trouncing that Democrats received across America is already looking like it could be just the first of many more to come. But the stage for this complete crisis was set many years ago.
In the past 20 years, the electoral prospects of Democrats have continued to shrink across the nation, and even a cursory look at the county-level results from 1996 to 2016 reveals the extent of the damage.
America’s rejection of their failed policies show the Democratic Party faces an identity crisis of unprecedented proportions.
Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi’s closer-than-expected leadership election revealed growing dissent among the Democrat ranks, and for good reason. The 2016 election revealed a profound identity crisis within the party, and if they ever want to be a national party again, Democrats have a lot of soul-searching to do.
