After attending Donald Trump’s campaign rally in New Hampshire, a 20-year Democrat realizes her party’s odds are slim in 2020.
It is dangerous in the extreme to take anything for granted. But this is certainly encouraging for those of us who think a Democratic victory in the 2020 elections would be horrible for our country!

I hope it’s a wake-up call that causes them to take a long look in the mirror and really ask themselves how they got here. Maybe then they’ll start listening. I tend to doubt it, but I can hope.”
