Rural Dems: Party Ignored Us, Suffered the Consequences

RollCall: Democrats in rural America have a blunt message for the rest of their party: We saw the electoral disaster coming — and it’s your fault.

Strategists and party officials say their warnings about the party’s lackluster outreach to rural voters went unheeded by Democratic leaders for years, culminating in this month’s shock defeat to Donald Trump. A presidential candidate who actually performed poorly in many cities and suburbs nonetheless scored an upset victory because of a surge in support from small towns and rural areas.

To these old Democratic political hands — many of whom hail from well outside the cities where most party professionals live — the outcome would have been preventable if the party had developed and sustained an effort to win over these voters. Instead, they say a Democratic Party that focused on only the urban and suburban vote either ignored rural America entirely or badly mishandled the outreach it did undertake.  See more

  1. Hillary didn’t see the need to stagger into the rural American areas…She thought she had stuffed enough ballot boxes to win hands down. Stupid bint!

  2. The political uni-party is to blame.

    The politically correct lobby focused succubus’ we have in office all need to go.

    Total recall on all incumbents.

  3. How can anyone living a real rural life as a farmer and provider EVER vote for Democrats? What’s the hook? Transvestite farm animals? I mean for crying out loud. Do they have internet out there?

  4. modern “democrat” thinking is substantial in large cities, every where else it just cannot apply.

    is this proof living in large modern cities is an escape from reality?

  5. I see no reason what so ever to tell or explain to the Dems, How or Why they Lost.Like don’t give them any Ideas. They LOST. Thank God they lost.

    annie Go Trump

  6. Outreach?
    Fukkin OUTREACH?!
    Are you shittin me?
    You either believe in the underlying philosophy, or you don’t.

    Are you a socialist?
    Do you hate your neighbors and friends?
    Do you enjoy murdering the unborn?
    Do you subscribe to totalitarianism?
    Do you accept that there is only ONE point of view?
    Should only the forces of Gov’t be armed?
    Should gov’t benefits be based on racial characteristics?
    Should positions in Academia be based on race and sex?
    Should “Teachers” be forbidden from teaching?
    Should lazy worthless maggots determine the “minimum” wage?
    Should Israel be destroyed?
    Should America bow before Iran and the nascent Caliphate?
    Must America allow the inundation of illegal alien-invading rat-people?

    If you answer in the affirmative, you’re a Demonrat!
    “Outreach” be damned!

    izlamo delenda est …

  7. No, they lost because their criminal candidate sucked. In the last two presidential elections are candidates sucked as well thanks to the GOP.
    If the GOP had its way guacamole Jeb would be in line for more of the same crap.
    Never forget the love affair these idiots have with each other on both sides of the aisle,

  8. We’ve got em by the throat, squeeze the life out of them. Never give up. If we relax our grip they will stab us in the back.

  9. I hope our new President Elect does not fall for the “forgive and pardon” mentality. If you let them off the hook, they will come back and try to kill you. They know where your weak spots are. They are NOT interested in healing, in moving forward, in anyone’s good (much less their country’s), only in their own good. You have the snakes penned down. Do you especially want to set them free, to circle and kill you now? That’s beyond insane. That is Dhimmo STUPID. Please be smarter than that!

  10. They are ELITES – both sides! They all know they are intellectually, morally, genetically superior to everyone outside city limits. It was not an “oversight” it’s an indication of what they think.
