But I don’t see how we pull it off without a massive reversal of the current trend.

I'm not sure how that will turn out in the end (we'll see what SCOTUS does) but it definitely looks better than we feared.

But a 10-12 point swing means dozens of seats... not the 2-4 that we could theoretically survive.

I feel like they’ve gone too far with the gerrymandering and who can decide who can vote in the first place.

If we are being set up to fail, then we need to challenge the legitimacy of the GQP.

have passed enough anti-voting bills to already assure them victory.

They will just make it too hard for enough people to vote for Democrats, they will stop people from voting, and they will rig the count.

This plus the blatant gerrymandering will give them control.

The failure to pass the Voting Bill, thanks to those two Democratic Senators has sunk the Party.

This is the reality we face.

I posted a thread here:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100216380145

With action items. Please read and contribute any specifics you have.

Stand Up And Fight!

In case someone hasn't posted a summary of what WE can do to turn the tide, I have collected some links to articles. I'll update as I can. If the DNC has such an action agenda, I'll post that and gladly defer to them.
