This from an ex-Hillary Clinton staff person….
And off course Democrats need to get some of the Obama voters who would not vote for Hillary Clinton….And make sure to capitalize on the hurt some of Trump’s policies may level against American’s and businesses…
Democratic candidates are not writing off President Trump‘s supporters in the November midterm elections, despite a time of fierce political divisions, according to a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer.
Joel Payne, former director of African American Paid Media for Hillary for America, said Democrats will need the support of all the voters they can get in order to reclaim the House.
“I don’t think Democrats have written off Trump supporters,” Payne told Hill.TV’s “Rising.”
Winning over members of Trump’s base will be no easy task, especially in the increasingly polarized political environment. Divisions between Republicans and Democrats on fundamental political values reached record levels under the Obama administration, and they’ve widened since Trump took office, according to a study by the Pew Research Center.
Still, Payne said Democrats have already won over several red districts. He cited Rep. Conor Lamb’s (D-Pa.) special election victory as one example.
At the same time, Payne says Democrats are trying to win over more voters – without necessarily compromising their political ideology, which has become the subject of much debate recently as the party looks toward its future…..
