It's no secret that the party of Trump is the party of white grievance. Dionne argues that the continued winning formula for Democrats despite the Electoral College disadvantage is to keep convincing a multiracial coalition of voters across all levels of education that economic concerns unite us. It's obvious to those of us who are lifelong Democratic voters that Democrats are the ones who solve problems by expanding healthcare access, providing food assistance in tough times, and subsidizing child care, but as many of us here knock on doors and make phone calls during election season, we know that there are others who need convincing.


If President Biden and the Democrats are successful at passing legislation aimed to help the middle class instead of the oligarchs, the Republicans will be in the wilderness for generations to come. This is what Mitch and company are afraid of.
