Winning Is Not Enough | by Paul Glastris

Democrats are focused on taking back power—but our democracy depends on them keeping it. To do that, they have to start thinking differently.

To save our democracy, Democrats need to win big. They not only have to beat Donald Trump in 2020, but also have to achieve majorities in the House and Senate that are big and stable enough to survive the 2022 midterms.
Doing that will require winning back states and districts that they lost in 2014 and 2016, taking others that have long been in GOP hands, and governing in a way that keeps those states and districts from turning red again.

That will mean both turning out their base and making inroads among the white working class.

Though shrinking [], whites without a college degree still make up 45% of the electorate; they dominate in many swing states [] Democrats need to make inroads.
Very cogent thoughts on every aspect.. voting rights.. to campaign finance.. to healthcare.. to restoring faith in democracy. Please read in full.

Big thanks to the writer: Paul Glastris @glastris, Editor in chief, Washington Monthly.

1/ I think some political journalists are fundamentally misreading leftward shifts in the Democratic party; namely, I think many are over-attributing any leftward shift to Bernie Sanders.
