Moving to the left economically, I think is a good message. A lot of people that voted for Trump would support that. Trump basically ran on a populist economic message, similar to Sanders…then went hard right and rewarded the wealthy and corps, while giving significantly lower benefits to the middle and lower middle class.
I concur with with ICE argument. It is a screwed up agency that is relatively new…but abolishing it is not the answer. Maybe reform?
When progressives/democrats run as progressives, they generally win, sometimes even in Red areas. When they run as Republican Lite, they generally lose to the Republican.
They also need to run what they stand for, and not just run an anti-Trump campaign. It needs to be mentioned, but do not make that the key message.
Getting the vote out is also key. Every 25-50 age person I see, that complains…and I ask them if they voted, and they say no…I let them know, THAT is the problem. Millennials outnumber the 50+ demographic. They just need to vote!
