No amount of money will win elections for the Democrats until they shake up the party with some new blood.
The special election in Georgia was one example why the Democrats are losing ground. A record $26 million was raised to support the Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff ...and he still lost.
The specter of Trump's unpopularity loomed over that election, but did not derail the Republican candidate Karen Handel.
Love him, or hate him, Trump is charismatic when it comes to gaining followers. They love him so much that they show up at his rallies (he had another one in Iowa recently) days and hours before "showtime."
His hold on his fans borders on a cult following. He simply can do no wrong in their eyes. It's this kind of devotion that has kept Trump in office thus far.
The Republican party is afraid of Trump because of his core followers in key states.
There's no one even close in the Democratic party with a big following. Democrats are disorganized and demoralized. Instead of doing something about it, they continue to support the failed leadership of Nancy Pelosi and her cronies.
The excuse for staying with a sinking ship? Pelosi can raise a lot of money. Talk about a weak excuse. A charismatic leader with a central message could also bring in a lot of money and voters.
Democrats desperately need an anti-Trump. A charismatic leader who emerges with a powerful message to unite the fractured party.
Pelosi is poison, as is Hilllary Clinton. It's time for the old guard to step down and to get fresh new faces and ideas on how to further a progressive agenda that will entice the majority of Americans to follow.
A leader and a universal message. Sounds simple. But old politicians do not go quietly into the night. They need encouragement...
Time for me to walk on down the road...
