The Democrats in the age of Trump | The Economist

657 ratings | 46385 views
Since Donald Trump entered politics the Democrats have struggled to compete. The mid-term elections will see them employing a change in tactics that they hope will mobilise new voters and win over disillusioned moderates. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy It's being called the most important midterm election in American history. On November 6th Americans will vote for the first time since Donald Trump won the presidency. The Republicans control both houses of Congress - the midterms provide the Democrats with a chance of clawing back some political control. If the Democrats come up short they face another cycle shut out of power. The result of these midterms could shape America, and its political parties, for decades to come. Max Rose is running for Congress. Like Mr. Trump, Mr. Rose is an unusual figure. He's a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician. The success of Donald Trump has forced the Democrats to cast a wider net supporting first-time candidates with diverse backgrounds. Among them a record number of women and non-white candidates, but also many military veterans. The Republicans have long claimed that they are the party of the military. But now the Democrats are harnessing military patriotism too. This is a different breed of Democrat. In many cases they're running against career politicians. Mr. rose was inspired by the fresh approach of Mr. Trump's vision for the country but feels let down. Republicans already hold the house in the Senate. The Democrats stand little chance of winning the Senate, but with this new breed of candidate they could take control of the house. Failure would leave them unable to check president Trump's power.

Why the hell is the confederate national anthem playing in the background?
Philip B (9 days ago)
+Antonio Cruz The Confederate government was ungovernable. It did not get things done at even trivial levels of normal achievement. Embracing a novel concept of a "national anthem" was not a priority. A newborn nation also needs symbols. to rally and cohere the population.. Dixie had an interesting variety of inspiring song well received, anthems among them; they never came up with anything as compelling as the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
Antonio Cruz (9 days ago)
+Philip B Back then there wasn't much of a concept of a government deciding that a song was the official national anthem. But that didn't stop people from behaving as though it was. Dixie Land was and still is considered to be the national anthem of the confederacy, even though the confederate government didn't officially have a stance on it.
Philip B (8 days ago)
+Antonio Did the Confederacy have a national anthem? The US didn't yet have one at any time while Grant was alive. Meanwhile, I suspect that the editorial choice to use 'Dixie' for background music... might have been a nod to the GOP's "Southern Strategy". .You might google the term if you are not familiar with it.

Stop hurting innocent people! We will get through this together and we will find the enemies with in. Don’t give up! And don’t loose faith in the country and the people!

I very much agree with Rose. I can't blame him with running as a dem cus he could care less about the party he's on. Trump did a lone campaign and won, pretty much proving that you can do this without kissing up to fellow politicians in the party. Reps didn't even want to support him, they were going for Jeb Bush. But now that he's president, I gotta say that he's getting influenced a lot by his party and should've been running a very bipartisan govt just to give a big F U to both the dems and the GOP. Like honestly, the swamp is still very much there.

Its the best time ever to be a Democrat. They just turned Florida PERMANENTLY BLUE With the passage of amendment 4 last night which allows 1.6 million convicted felons in florida to now vote. And literally 80% of felons are democratic voters because they are either minorities or whites who want lenient law enforcement (which democrats are for). So its basically 1.6 million new democrat votes in florida, Trump only won it by about 100,000 votes. ITS OVER! The dems have secured their super majority.

The Dems have recently had no grip on any significant lever of power. Immigration reform is a complex matter. What the Repugnants had labeled "chain migration" is, in the mind of compassionate human beings, "family reunion". We can start immigration reform by banning all arrivals from the countries your forebears had left. Would that be an acceptable start?

The presidency is a total shit-shower to everyone who lives in a country with a genuine democracy. It's shameful. I get that people might agree with his policies (well, I don't get it actually) but the conduct, lack of respect, lies, refilling the swamp, racism, benefiting from the office, hiding his tax returns etc, etc. Though America was better than that.

537monster (12 days ago)
drmnys well it’s hard to put everything on the Democrats right now since they are out of power (mostly still, even though they took the house) Republicans deserve extra scrutiny now since they have most of the power, and recently they’ve done things that warrant them getting the same treatment that Democrats received in 2016. No party should keep control of the government if they commit corrupt acts while in power. If they continue, then they are replaced. If those people are corrupt, replace them. So on and so on.
drmnys (12 days ago)
+537monster hey I'm not saying Republicans are innocent. They have their own issues. I don't support them on many issues. There are some things I agree with on both sides. But by and large I am just disgusted by leftists and their dishonesty and corrupt ideology.

Actually it was about the ability of my aunt to pay for healthcare, since she has cancer (hi, democrat here). See Trump and his buddies are out trying to eliminate protections for people with preexisting conditions. Meaning that health insurance companies can increase the cost of insurance or refuse insurance to people with preexisting conditions (like cancer, diabetes, or even a genetic history of either. My father has diabetes, and my grandmother had cancer, so I have a genetic history of both, lucky for me I am covered under Tricare, but I can’t say the same for my sister) So no, it had nothing to do with transgender rights or the rights of homosexuals (which are important, but not my main issue) but the survival of people who need help, mainly Americans. Also I’m pro-union, I believe in climate change, and I want the government to invest more in public schooling, especially in low income areas. Is any of that really that bad? Why do you hate me for wanting these things?

midterms? just another round of auction and musical chairs by untruthful, cowardly "elites." the cowardice is not about martial prowess or material achievements, it's failure to face the truth, dishonesty and untruthfulness in thought word and deed - that is cowardice. there might be reason to vote in state and local if there is actually something in it for humanity, but really it won't make any difference. as always, the so-called "elite" class is utterly clueless and ignorant, violent imbeciles and self serving cheats. there is no meaningful action on climate change, no commitment to human rights or anything else, just more crime. they will hide in their estates and bunkers like the cheatful cowards they are when the environmental catastrophe they are working so hard for finally comes about. i wouldn't be surprised if one or other of the rascals with nuclear weapons tries to blow up the whole thing. Obama and the Dems needlessly provoked Putin and the Russians while Trump needlessly provokes China and North Korea, they are obsessed with torturing Iran for their corrupted and ignorant "religion," and the thugs are taking turns raping and murdering the people of Syria just like a pack of thugs surrounding an innocent victim and pummeling them to death. first the Putin thug bombs, then the Assad thug, then the Arab dictators take their turn, then the Trump thug, now it's the Bibi thug's turn, and so on to extermination. of all people i would have thought the Jews would have learned their lesson after WWII and the Holocaust (yes it DID happen, my grandpa was in Patton's Army), but no - "God promised Israel", and the crazy fundamentalist Christians - it's all a free-for-all, it's all on Jesus, "we're forgiven."

Trump lost the popular vote. Yet he became president!? Therefore it would stand to reason that quite a few positions will change during this midterm election.? If this is truly an election that is a referendum on Trump's policies and nothing changes, then one can only assume that our election process is truly hampered through gerrymandering vote tampering election fraud and hacking with a lot of help from Russia.! As a concerned American citizen I say there is no Mueller investigation on Trump. I say it's all bulshit! Obviously I don't like Trump, big f****** deal . millions of people don't like them! I'm a lifelong Republican who did not vote for Trump because he repulses me and my standards of politics. No two pump vote Trump Punk here. So go fuckyourself! And quit f* f f****** focking** everybody else like Trump is doing. Assehole! Stick around long enough you'll see. Get ready to lube up your ass holes and get fuxked! Dumbass.! Up yours.

Hillary Clinton talking about civility her campaign hired a top-level British spy Christopher Steele to run stories to write memos claiming the Trump was in a hotel room in Moscow cavorting with prostitutes who were urinating on a bed maybe on him with Putin filming it and that's what Russia gates started as now is that civil this Hillary have a leg to stand on when she talks about Trump not being civil so the hypocrisy is glaring but we can't just get angry at the hypocrisy we have to get focused on why they're trying to ... Senator Lindsey Graham and Brett Kavanaugh during the hearings they spoke about military tribunals essentially and I just interviewed Dave janda and janda says that the possibility of military tribunals for those who have been seditious or treasonous against the United States and our Constitution is very very real ... .. the enemies of this country are not just bad people committed to an evil that is mostly unknown and unseen and the fact that they're working through these secret services to support the terrorists in Afghanistan in Iraq in Syria that was the Obama policy that was the Hillary Clinton policy and when Michael Flynn blew the whistle on that look what happened to him he got targeted by this fraud Muller look at the fact that the Obama administration brought into power in Ukraine a neo Nazi military wing that controls the Ukrainian government and when the Trump campaign came out against providing lethal weapons to Ukraine ...

[email protected] Economist,I am an Indian and somewhat supporter of Liberals Of America.But you are a news channel.Please dont show news as propoganda.Yours job is to help people choose which side they want to swing Left or Right Or Centre,but you are imposing your ideology on People.In this video your motive was clear,Republicans are bad guys and these heroes are going to fight them.Being on the left side myself,I can feel it.No one from right is going to listen to u if u are going to show propoganda in place of News

They’re just reporting the facts, which helps people make the right choice. Right for the people. Balance is meaningless if it gives you the impression the wrong choice is equal with the right one.

+Lucas Martinez If YOU find that you " can't even speak in America without being labeled a Nazi": ...maybe what you are saying recommends that label? There are some 330 million people living in the US, and many of them manage well on a daily basis to go to work, buy groceries, chat with neighbors, do lots of things without having swastikas assigned to their speech.

Ravi, this was a 'slice of life' -type piece. At no point had it encouraged anyone to vote this way or other. This is standard journalistic fare. It is "background" if you choose to be kind, "filler" if you don't; but it is NOT news, nor discernably meant to be The Economist is British; much of its readership and audience is international but not American - let alone Americans who vote in Richmond. Please gain some perspective.

Ravi Roshan thank you for saying this. I'm moving away for the left because of this. They play a minoritarian and identity politics, and chooses propaganda over everything else. When Trump won I was of the same view as yours, and I actually liked it because that meant the left needed to work on itself, but did it? No, it's just playing along the same lines. I wish the republicans won it completely so that the left got their lesson and took a step back and introspect. I still believe that the left has the ability to bring some change in the world, but that's cannot take place by creating class conflict, or isolating one group and focusing on other. They are really getting terrible at this point. Also, one of the liberal values was free speech and due process all of which they are trying to shut down 'for minority voices'. It's turning out to be more of a fascist than anything else.

Democrats are only liberal with other people's money. Calling Democrats liberal is an insult to liberty. The Republicans suck but they still know enough shame to be vocally supportive of reduced government, free market, free choice, or economic freedom. Democrats outright support socialist agenda, the antithesis of liberty, and more intrusive government intervention. Even perfectly reasonable articulate people who admittedly lean left are driven away and insulted by the weird, barbaric, and obnoxious rhetoric and culture promoted by the Democrats.

Pseudo Republicans. Where do the stand with taxes on middle class and small businesses. Do they support the first and second amendments. Beyond feelings and optics where do they actually stand on issues that actually affect blue collar folks.

Rose running on a drain the swamp campaign. Good approach. If he says the President is not doing it,how's he gonna do it from his position. Under Cuomo poor people on fixed incomes are in jeopardy of losing their living spaces.The lack of maintenance and support leads many activists to speculate that those properties are slated for private enterprise that stands to make a lot of people rich,including politicians.Not that it matters much but Republicans are not in power.Rat food for thought.

Recruit populists to fight populism. The Democrat party gazing into the abyss, like Nietzsche said it. Soon the USA's two party system will just be a 1 party, 2 flavors system. If its not already.

Propaganda, plain and simple...
Philip B (9 days ago)
+Ricardo When alleged "propaganda" is plainly visible (at least to you),: it probably isn't. During WWII. the Allies used the opening of Beethoven's 5th Symphony as a call sign, dah-dah-dah-DAAAH. Three short, one long: morse code for the letter V. - V for Victory... meanwhile poking a finger into the German eye, reminding them that their civilization... was civilized before the Nazi takeover. Added bonus: unlike what the apparatus surrounding your daily life tells you, we Allies are not trying to eradicate German culture. Not bad thought cargo conveyed over just a few seconds.. Another very effective propaganda chop was when the Nazis tampered with Fritz Lang's movie, M. This was the depicted story of a deranged murder of children who had evaded the police; the People of the street eventually caught hi, He was tried before a tribunal of the People (black eye to the government) and eventually was found 'not guilty' by reason of insanity. That's where the original movie ended; the Nazis added just a few words at the end: "and now we must all worry for our children". . * There is a craft to effective propaganda. In its (now) less insidious forms, it might be the subtext of advertising you don't detect - read up on Vance Packard's book, The Hidden Persuaders / ISBN: 978-0-9788431-0-6
