Democratic Party - Situation Dire

What is major in this election is that the Democratic Party was comprehensively defeated everywhere. This means that the Donald's coattails were broad and jumped voters into every race.  No one expected that.  He enters office with a clear mandate on a number of strategic issues as well and now also has the house, the senate, and even enough governors to get things done.  This has not actually happened for a long time.

Also unremarked is that Trump comprehensively defeated the whole array of professional politicos while he was at it.  These are the folks who essentially took over with the rise of Bill Clinton and include Bush and Obama. None of them ever brought anything to the table except their skill in politics and represents a real break between the past that ended with H W Bush when professional politicians really did not exist unless internally produced.  Now they go to college for a degree in political science whose intellectual rigor only Mickey Mouse would appreciate.

Now the bad news.  Trump is good for eight years.  He will be implementing important agendas all through that period which impact positively partially or otherwise on the American people and particularly the folks who work and the whole middle class generally.  Better yet he is able to communicate continuously with his public bullhorn via his twitter account.  Facts do not matter as long as he shares his feelings.  The press will be happy to provide the facts the next day or so in case they matter.

 The white working class has already bolted to him allowing him to rebuild the Reagen Majority.  Rural America is also completely his.  Now the seriously bad news.  The black working class is likely to bolt into his camp in the next election in four years.  Any sign of attention to the inner cities will do it.  Even worse, the Latinos will respond positively to a successful immigration policy because they are the actual winners.

In short, the Democratic party will receive eight years of pounding at the same time that the socialist rump is obviously  resurgent.  The potential downside for the Democratic Party is been reduced to this socialist rump.  At the same time all politicians will need to go back to school to learn how to use social media just to counter the Donald's warm connection with his voters which he will continuously massage.

Final numbers
: : 62,972,226 : 62,277,750

 Update: Anyone asking where I got the figures, it was from twitter posts. Knowing the Democrat media have been dragging their liberal feet giving Michigan to Trump – finally they did,  with Arizona finally declared two days ago – Trump now has the 309. Except for the twitter posts, the popular vote number still need to be updated in Wikipedia or MSM media – which may take another few days because the liberals are still reeling and recovering from Trump-shock victory. If I’m wrong, I won’t hesitate to change the numbers. It’s the job of the establishment media to tell the people the final numbers when it’s out there already.

As of 11/13/16, CNN and Wikipedia are showing different numbers.

Example below: As of 11/13/16 CNN and Wikipedia quote same electoral vote number for Hillary Clinton but not with Trump – CNN still using the 290, Wikipedia 306 EV. They also differ when it comes to popular votes – CNN has more for Clinton, Wikipedia has less.

Remember, CNN projected a Trump popular vote victory when all ballots are counted. Then CNN claim “design flaw” for the projection.

This is bad news??? You're kidding, right? The utter destruction of the Dems is great news, but it won't happen.

Here's the deal, the two parties need each other. Each has the other to blame for their joint criminal destruction of the country. Their tag team ploy has been going on for well over 100 years and won't end now. If you want to understand how tptb misrule the US, read Indispensable Enemies by Walter Karp.
