Donald Trump won more electoral votes than Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. A lot more. The final tally — 304-227.

And while Hillary got roughly 3 million more votes than Trump, nationwide, Trump won 30 states, Clinton, 20. The U.S. map is mostly red, with smatterings of blue.

What’s more, Trump, who’s never held a single political office, won on the strength of his platform: America first, more jobs, tighter borders, better trade deals. His ideas resonated far more than Hillary’s, which revolved mostly around the fact that she wasn’t Trump.

Ever since, Democrats — clearly furious that they lost — have bashed Trump at every turn. Sure, Trump is helping them — a lot — but Democrats who once complained that Republicans were “the party of ‘no’  are turning into exactly that.

There is no leader in the Democratic Party right now — not Hillary, not Barack Obama, not Sen. Bernie Sanders — and the party’s agenda seems at this point to be nothing more than to obstruct Trump at every turn. They’re offering no fresh ideas, no change from their past philosophies — which not only lost them the White House in 2016 but also more than 1,000 legislative seats since Obama took office in 2009.

Now, some Democratic leaders are beginning to worry that an agenda to thwart Trump won’t turn into more seats in 2018 — or the White House in 2020.
