Stacy McCain examines a difficult math problem facing the Democrats, the balance of the Senate after the 2018 midterm elections.
Hillary didn’t lose the election because of deep-red rural states like Wyoming and Arkansas, she lost because she was rejected by voters in states like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The opinions of working-class white voters in Scranton or Kenosha were not considered relevant by Democrats, because people like that have no influence in the 21st-century Democrat Party.

America doesn’t need a double dose of the same bad medicine, but that is what young Democrats want. They believe Obama has been too moderate and see Clinton as even more old-school.
Just so, and bad medicine is a good analogy. The inept regulatory state expanded by President Obama and our presence in the world that he’s contracted have weakened the nation.
