We’ve discussed this many times about how the liberal elite’s agenda for the Democratic Party is not compatible with the working class, which used to be a reliable voting bloc. There were many issues that Clinton flubbed with these voters who torpedoed Democrats’ dreams of keeping the White House and retaking Congress.

He also added that, like Bill Clinton, the Hillary campaign got warnings from other Democrats that their messaging could cost them the election.
