3. Money, media, and stupidity
If you think there would be scarce chance that Snyder can be defeated - I say that is a failure of the party.

Or perhaps it could be that

1. Republicans have the Koch brothers and the DeVoses on their side - which Democrats don't - and
2. The local media, like the national media, isn't exactly balanced.
3. People are stupid.

It's amazing how many people try to blame the party for something when there are clearly other factors like money, media, and stupidity.

Anyone who thinks the MDP leadership isn't doing enough on this or other issues: What should be done instead?

And if you think trying to help the most successful President since FDR win a battleground state is wasteful, then I have to wonder: What isn't wasteful?

Incidentally, a group called Michigan Forward is circulating petitions to place the EFM law on the ballot as a referendum.
