When the GOP will stop being Trump’s party: The GOP’s big test
As Democrats push back on the GOP’s attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a replacement, the Republican Party’s big challenge will be keeping the base and working to win over the voters who are disillusioned by Trump’s presidency.
“I think it’s going to be a challenge to maintain the base,” said Dan Biederman, the founder of the Center for American Progress, a centrist think tank.
“The base is an important constituency.
They are critical to the functioning of the political process, but they are also important to the Republican agenda.
And the party has to do a lot to make sure that they are heard, and they are involved in the political processes that govern.”
Democrats are counting on the base to help them build the kind of coalition that will allow them to recapture the White House in 2020.
The party is already showing signs of how it plans to do just that.
With an unprecedented number of white voters, Democrats are running a campaign that promises to appeal to them, and that will make the party much more formidable in the coming election cycle.
But Democrats also have to make a decision about what to do with the millions of Americans who have voted for Republican candidates over the past eight years.
The Republican Party has faced a dilemma for years about whether to reach out to and recruit a broader base of voters.
The first thing it tried was to build the sort of coalition of white working-class voters that would be the party’s most reliable base, said David Wasserman, a former Democratic Party strategist.
That effort did not go well.
The Republican Party needed a more diverse coalition to win.
And as more of the electorate became more white, Republicans found they were not reaching out to the white working class.
“There was a real question of, ‘How do we build the base without reaching out?’ and, ‘What does that do to the party?'”
“That question of how do you build a coalition of the working class and the white, middle-class and working-poor without reaching beyond the working-middle class, has not been answered.”
And as the party made its decision to focus on building an increasingly diverse coalition, it started to have a harder time reaching out and recruiting people who are not part of the base.
For example, Democrats had a difficult time reaching white working people and women who would have been part of a core Republican coalition in the past.
They have a hard time reaching minorities, including Latinos.
The GOP has had to find a way to appeal not only to a broader white base, but to the growing minority population, especially among younger voters.
So how can Democrats win those voters without relying on the same kind of appeal to a larger white, working-and-middle-class base that Republicans are trying to build?””
I think that that has been a challenge for the GOP.”
So how can Democrats win those voters without relying on the same kind of appeal to a larger white, working-and-middle-class base that Republicans are trying to build?
“There is an obvious question of what the path to success for Democrats will be, but I don’t think it is the same as the GOP,” Wasserman added.
“Republicans are trying so hard to appeal across all racial and ethnic groups that it’s hard for them to be able to make an argument that they can win over all of the different demographics.”
It could be the Democrats’ biggest test yet in the race for the White Houses.
Democrats hope to build a bigger base of support among Hispanics, Asian-Americans, women, African-Americans and other groups that traditionally have voted Democratic.
But the party also has to make some tough choices about what kind of message it wants to deliver.
It is the first time Democrats have been running a national campaign on a national scale since 1992, when Bill Clinton won re-election.
Democrats have focused heavily on voter registration drives, voter education, voter outreach and voter registration.
The goal has been to mobilize voters who otherwise might not vote or would be less likely to vote.
The effort has had a mixed success.
A recent CNN/ORC poll found that while nearly two-thirds of voters were more likely to register to vote if they could, only 46 percent of registered voters said they were going to vote in 2020 if they had to.
And only 36 percent of eligible voters said the Democratic Party has done enough to mobilize them to vote this election cycle, which has included the use of voter registration stickers, door-knocking, voter identification and phone calls.
Democrats have also been working to increase voter turnout among younger people and minorities, a key demographic group that has historically supported Democrats in the presidential election.
The party has been trying to reach the Latino vote, and it has been running advertisements featuring Latino celebrities and speaking engagements to Latinos.
Democrats also are working to
