Donald Trump May Be Democrats' Key To Surviving The Next Four Years

And just because some of those angry white people also happen to be women doesn't mean they should have been written off or taken for granted-or that their votes wouldn't count just as much as their male counterparts' surely did.

That reality - only the fourth time in USA history the popular-vote victor lost the election - may be what's fueling some of the blowback on Trump's victory. The argument for the cloture supermajority is that it takes debate beyond the simpler marketplace of garnering one vote more than half.

On a lighter note, Bernie Sanders commented on Larry David's portrayal of the Senator, jokingly saying that "I am actually Larry David, and Sanders is back in Vermont, and you fell for it", eliciting laughs from the audience. Claire McCaskill (D-MO). "I don't know if he's put a spell on them or they've all changed their mind". "It'll have to be done again", Reid told Talking Points Memo in an interview published October 24.

Really, voters responded when Obama said he would finally make government work for them by ending the corrosive influence of the elites. A magical touch he hoarded for himself alone - Democratic Party be damned.

Weber showcased states and detailed counties where Trump improved on former Republican nominee Mitt Romney's performance, as well as the comparatively few votes Clinton picked up in wealthy suburbs such as Fairfax, Virginia. The time has come to make that clear. And even her opportunity to stock the federal judiciary - including the Supreme Court - would be in doubt, trammeled by the Republicans' resolve to resist. If you want to continue to make this country strong, and the number one country in the world, you can not bring this weapon down.

Another candidate for the post is Howard Dean, a populist who made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004.

Tom Udall of New Mexico, one of the leading foes of the filibuster in the Senate, seemed reluctant to discuss efforts to abolish the filibuster.

"People are exhausted of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes, and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids - all while the very rich become much richer".

I think it is important for the moderates to come out and again dominate and steer the political direction in America.

Everyone's asking me how surprised I am. "I just don't think there's much interest in it right now".

Bernie Sanders' campaign fell victim to the Democratic party machinery. "There's a lot of discussion on a lot of issues. I don't know what he's gonna do next", said Sen.

The Los Angeles Times/USC poll, which turned out to be the most accurate of the cycle, was the most bullish on Trump's chances throughout. "It's just a great, great protection for the minority". Throughout the country Democrats were battered by Republicans in multiple races.

This frustration with the establishment showed up all the time during the DNC, with protestors shouting "Hey Hey, Ho Ho, the (DNC/Hillary/oligarchy) has got to go!" "We'd never seen abuse of advice and consent in the history of our country so that was a necessary way to correct it". We have yet to see if we will see any movement on the costs of college and education. Throw in pending and prospective vacancies on the Supreme Court, and you can see why many progressives consider this the worst-case scenario.

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC expressed opposition to changing the filibuster, but he too didn't rule it out if a Supreme Court nominee is blocked.

"The last thing I want to do is behave like Harry Reid when it comes to the Senate". The direct and populist style of the now President-elect, appealing to the lowest instincts of certain sectors of society -very different from the usual tone of USA politicians- gave him a touch of authenticity in the eyes of the most disaffected sector of the right-wing electorate. Would Trump have accepted the outcome? You can have a challenging hearing. And majority are too busy working hard and caring for their families to worry about if two guys or two women want to get hitched.
