"If they hadn't run a corporate puppet in 2016..." - #54 | Posted by SpeakSoftly at 2017-10-25 02:38 PM
The DNC didn't run anyone.
More than 30,000,000 Americans voted in Democratic primaries and caucuses in 2016, and Hillary Clinton received 55.2% of the vote. At the time of the national convention she had the requisite number of delegates (pledged and the so-called "super") to win the nomination.
"The DNC's corporate loyalty allowed trump to swoop in and claim the populist mantle."
And yet, Hillary Clinton still received 3,000,000 more popular votes than Trump ("populist mantle").
And Democratic candidates for the Senate overall won 53.8% of the popular vote nationwide in 2016 ("populist mantle").
And while the GOP won more popular votes for the US House in 2016 (by 1.1%), they won or retained 51.2% of the seats to the Democrat's 45.5% ("populist mantle").
And in spite of all that, you've missed the real issues with the electoral system in America and, instead, chase a boogeyman.
While never once addressing the "cut off your nose to spite your face" expression.
