These people have no idea how to appeal to the center of the electorate:
“Another broad misconception shared by those in Merrill’s camp is that economic populists from the left who support Buttigieg’s messaging believe that all Trump voters can potentially be swayed by it. It’s common among these types to point to some act of horrific racism or sexism at a Trump rally and smirk about “economic anxiety.” But, of course, no one really believes that all Trump voters are persuadable in this way. Remember that Hillary Clinton herself placed Trump supporters into two baskets, one of them deplorable and one of them not. What shocked most liberals was just how big the basket of deplorables was. But it’s naive at best and disingenuous at worst to postulate that there is literally no one in the second basket: people who may not have not liked Trump much, but voted for him out of general frustration or a belief that he might do something to shake things up. Elections in America are extremely close. Even if only 5% of Trump voters are in a persuadable non-deplorable basket, that’s the difference in many districts and states between a loss and a landslide victory.
The Roman orator Quintilian once wrote that no one is so evil that they would wish to appear so. While Quintilian never got the chance to meet the alt-right, his maxim still likely stands for some Trump voters. Many do not think of themselves as racist and seek to vote based on that intention. But they are probably looking for something or someone to blame for the decline in their circumstances and the health of their communities.
Democratic messaging should play to that idea. There is no good reason to want to believe that a significant portion of white working class voters are unreachable except through racist appeals, especially when there is plenty of evidence to the contrary. …”
This campaign feels very necessary.

Some free advice. Take it for what it is worth.
Democratic messaging sounds a lot like nails scratching on a chalkboard to populist voters. Hillary and Elizabeth Warren are the ultimate example of this. Creepy Joe and Buttplug also fall into this category because they pander to progressives in political correctness.
More than anything else, it is political correctness that alienates populist and nationalist voters. It was the secret to Blompf’s success in 2016. He won these people over by shaking things up and breaking those hated norms and promising to build the wall. No one wants to be scolded by a self righteous school marm like Hillary. Trump was funny and relatable by comparison.
Do you see what we are doing here? We’re laughing and having a good time and mocking all these other losers running for the Democratic nomination. Lighten up.
Note: The Democratic establishment and the mainstream media was stupid enough to believe that a Russian conspiracy is why Hillary lost the 2016 election. LOL.
