What have democrats done to flip the rust belt back?
Further embracing progressivism seems like a losing strategy.

Right now, why would 2020 go any different if one assumes Kamala/Warren or their ilk are the nominee?

Nada.

It's like they refuse to address it.

They inexplicably had a Kennedy embarrass himself on live TV from a blue collar auto garage lecturing us on white priveledge and transgender bullying. Hell of an effort.

They voted against the tax cut. No one wants more money and the dems used their knowledge and awareness individual American economics to their full advantage.

Later this year they can all run on "we tried to keep more of your money but the demented GOP wouldn't allow it."

Winning strategy.

Well, they almost won the Rust Belt with the most hated candidate in history. Odds are that Harris/Booker will be less hated than Hillary (even if only marginally so) and will drive higher turnout.

Elected Dems? Not a whole lot.


There are a lot of Dem candidates runnig this year that are more in touch with that core group though.

Trump owns the rust belt ... Dems are fricked because rank and file union members went against their bosses and voted to MAGA

Rust belters are moving South and will start to flip some Southern states. Sadly, doing nothing may be a winning strategy.

^^^ yep I think this scam is part of democrat playbook in their struggle to turn red states blue

It happened to Colorado over a 15-20 year period with Californians moving there

Democrats are criminally dishonest

Democrat's are no longer married to the working class. They have prematurely determined her dead and have moved on to another bride

Trot out a bunch of white dudes whenever possible, post election.

One example = Kennedy's rebuttal to SOTU
Then trot a minority the next day
Unbelievable people buy what they're selling

Identity politics is what many democrats have become, and it's been sad to watch

They think that explaining white privilege to manufacturing workers who've lost their job is a winning tactic. They want the rust belt to know that other groups have it worse. Just look at bandaids, the whites can go to the store and get bandaids that match their skin tone and the blacks can't.

There's no magic wand to bring those jobs back, but we can at least pressure companies to introduce black bandaids.

They trotted out the most entitled, uber limousine liberal from the coast white male they possibly could. That did nothing to persuade blue collar workers in flyover country.

Quite frankly, they don't give a shite about middle america. Their path to power is the coasts and mass immigration.

Next time they get power, I expect a full scale push to end the electoral college. That will guarantee middle and rural america irrelevance for good.

The funny thing is this also pissed a lot of the progressives off, they wanted a trans-black lesbian disabled left handed midget to give the speech.

Although at this point, seeing at how horrible Kennedy did, I can't imagine someone fitting that bill doing a worse job.

They did let the rust belt know they were racist for voting in an old white dude over an old white lady

Rust belt is shamed and will correct

Due away with the electoral college, drastically alter the second amendment, legalize weed and tax it, universal healthcare: a winning situation for all. A formula for success.
