There was an interesting bit of reporting that came out by fivethirtyeight. It basically makes the claim that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by never Trump Republicans who joined the Democratic party after being basically dismissed by the Repubican Party due to orange face's grip on the party. Here is the articlehttps://fivethirtyeight.com/features/how-never-trumpers-crashed-the-democratic-party/
The reason this is a big deal is because with this wing of the Republican Party now having some influence in the Democratic Party, coupled with the Progressive Wing's unwillingness to fight and stand up to the NeoLiberal/establishment wing of the party, what you end up with in the Democratic Party is basically the Joe Biden nomination. And now that Joe Biden clearly has baggage (not just because of Tara Reade but because of his corporatist approach to policy which largely benefits those at the top at the expense of the little guy) a new poll has come out stating that nearly half of Bernie's supporters will consider voting for someone other than Biden. Granted that poll may be an outlier, but lately the only thing that Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and the Democratic establishment have to offer progressives is the middle finger. And they have no support among young voters. I have a friend of mine who was a Sexual Assault victim, and is as progressive as they come, and she says there is no way in heck she can vote for Joe Biden given the credible allegations against him.
All of Trump's issues aside, the fact that he has joined Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi in listening to Wall Street and the wealthy during this crisis instead of the people has put him in a more difficult situation. If he had a grasp on this issue from the start and was more sympathetic to the people, Biden wouldn't stand a chance. But now Trump is trying to roll out the same old playbook from that past, Capital Gains Tax Cuts, Payroll Tax Cuts, etc. Payroll tax cuts do nothing to help anyone who is unemployed, and any reduction in the Capital Gains tax is only going to benefit those at the top, who don't need it right now. And Mitch McConnell only wants modest infrastructure, while now hiding behind the deficit? Easy to do when your donor's already got theirs, but this is McConnell literally trying to fumble the football on the goal line. And it could cost the GOP the Senate. Heck McConnell's own reelection is far from a sure thing. Social issues are really they only reason that KY keeps sending him back.
