Looking at American politics over the past several decades many political observers have speculated that the Democrat Party has a great future. The Party has been gaining Latino supporters steadily and Latinos are a growing population.
Looking at the past decade we have seen the opposite. The Left has lost all the state governments except the coastal bastions. This has lost it the House because Lefties have diluted their vote by living in dense urban clusters. Since the 37 Red states each have two votes that has also lost the Left the Senate and the Electoral College.
What do I see for the future? Most importantly, the Lefty-Democrat strategy of dividing voters into small identity segments (gender, ethnicity and skin color) has reached its peak. Their focus on trannies is a dead end road with the tiny numbers involved.
The black population is a solid voting block but not strong on voter turnout when the candidate isn’t black. Stupid maybe but not supportive when the candidate isn't black.
The Latino population is still focused in the Blue states so it’s impact is lessened. Additionally much of the Latino population are Evangelicals who are rapidly becoming Red. And second generation Latinos are disproportionately Red-conservative. Some improvement in voter ID laws will also reduce the Latino vote.
The Republican Party has been split with the elite not voting and the rest of the Party joining the Trump party. This just means the elites will slowly rejoin the party over some of the Conservative issues that they will not find elsewhere. Much like the Bernie communists had to come back to the main Democrat Party.
What’s unusual in the Trump election was that he carried Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Blue collar states. This realignment could be long term and will be an example for future Red state campaigns. The quirky vote of Wisconsin seems to be along similar lines; anti-union people angry and voting for Trump. And the Cubans, who have never voted with other Latinos were particularly distressed at the Lefty adoration of Castro’s Cuba and voted for Trump.
A political realignment caused by Democrats using a dead-end strategy and some demographic trends that don't result in votes in Washington.
