15. Yes!

The Democratic Party used to be the champion of both social justice and good jobs. And it still is!

But this is no longer obvious to many in the working class. Why? The Party has gotten off-message. Not enough emphasis was placed on the jobs issue. Position papers and brief mentions in speeches are not enough.

To reach as many people as possible, HRC needed to run TV and radio ads that pounded on a twin theme: social justice and good jobs. But that didn't happen.

The Robber Baron took advantage of that. If we don't learn from this, we'll lose the Electoral College again in 2020.
