It’s like this: The Democrats have spent the last several decades trying to regain the South and trying to get Wall Street support. Republicans have the home field advantage on both and there’s absolutely no sign that that advantage is diminishing. But the Democrats wanted to live comfortable lives on Wall Street’s teat. They became corrupt, which is why they chose Hillary Clinton and then (probably) stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. They’ve gotten what they deserve because they weren’t doing the country a bit of good.
