Divided Dems can’t exploit Trump’s biggest vulnerability
The Democrats suffer from deep, potentially deadly divisions – exemplified by the bitter sniping between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the anti-American radicals of the ultra-progressive “squad” in the House of Representatives, along with the party’s circular firing squad of two dozen embattled presidential candidates.
These feuds not only chew up liberal resources, energy and credibility, but also destroy Democrats’ chances of capitalizing on Trump’s greatest vulnerability: his disappointing failure at unifying the country and his reckless promotion of partisan polarization. If Democrats can’t even work together on their own side of the aisle, how can they promise to bring the whole country together?
At least Trump has managed to enlist the great majority of Republicans on his team, while the Democrats continue to fracture and quibble just as the campaign moves into a more serious phase.
