    This is along the lines of what I have been saying for a couple of years. That the Democratic Party made up of many smaller, but mostly loyal, factions was bound to have issues at some point. All it takes is one group to feel left out and they will show their displeasure at the ballot box.

    In 2016 it has been the traditional democratic blue-collar worker who has seen their income stagnate so that kids can choose what bathroom to use. Obviously not a cause/effect relationship in this case, but a reflection of what seemed more important to the party.
