One of the reasons Trump won the election is that Democrats never understood the Trump phenomenon. They didn’t get what motivated his base voters or why working people rejected their identity politics.
Now a progressive group is giving Democrats advice which proves they still don’t get it.
The Daily Caller reports:
Progressive Strategy Memo Shows Dems Have No Idea How Trump Won
Progressive political action group Priorities USA published an anti-Trump strategy memo Friday advising Democrats to attack Trump on his political statements and his close connections to Wall Street, a line of attack that failed during the 2016 presidential election.
The memo heavily references an internal poll taken by GarinHartYang Research Group and the strategy memo was created by Global Strategy Group. The poll revealed that President Donald Trump has a 42 percent approval rating, but further, only 47 percent of respondents disapprove of the job Trump is doing so far.
“Trump is vulnerable on the economy because voters believe he looks out for the interests of the wealthy and corporations, and progressives must leverage that to show how his economic policies are failing regular people,” the memo asserted.
“Progressives must prioritize connecting the dots between Trump’s economic policies and the impact they have on regular people.”
This strategy won’t work at all.
If Trump stays on message and continues delivering on his promises, which is likely, this sort of attack from Democrats will fall on deaf ears.
The strategy also overlooks the fact that a majority of “regular people” no longer trust Democrats.
It’s going to be a long four to eight years for the left.
