Once the 2016 presidential election ended, Democrat leaders met to discuss their new strategy to regain power. Along with Democrat leaders, billionaire investor and donor George Soros met with them to help them find a more effective political strategy. The Democrats concluded that they will need to challenge Trump’s policies in order to ensure that American remains a politically progressive nation. In order to achieve this, they have looked to preserve Obamacare, appoint new leadership and also find ways to appeal to working class voters. By taking these steps, the Democrats will be in great position to regain power and be able to more easily impose their agenda.
With the help of George Soros, the Democrats will look to devote more resources for their upcoming campaigns. The Democrats will look to have significant campaign contributions in order to more effectively reach out to working class voters. In the most recent election, a number of blue collar workers voted for Trump because he believed that he would help get their jobs back. However, the Democrats will now look to appeal to these voters and convince them that they have their best interests. Democrat donors will likely invest millions of dollars for party members in conservative and swing states in order to be in better position to win the midterm elections. The extra campaign funds will likely contribute to more effective campaigns than in the past.
As well as investing more money for campaigns, Democrats have decided to nominate new leaders that will hopefully provide a fresh and more powerful voice. The first step they will take is to nominate and name Keith Ellison as the head of the Democratic National Committee. Over the years, Ellison has established a reputation as being one of the more established and effective politicians for the party. With the leadership of the Minnesota senator, the Democrats will have someone who will stand up for the party by challenging the impending policies of Donald Trump.
Along with nominating new leadership and investing more campaign funds in conservative states with the help of George Soros, the Democrats have looked to keep Obamacare intact. Republicans have long made it clear that they intend to repeal Obamacare. The president elect Trump has also said that he wants to eliminate this law as well. Since repealing this law will likely make healthcare inaccessible and unaffordable for millions of people, Democrats will likely push to preserve this significant law. By preserving Obamacare, the Democrats will therefore accomplish one of the main goals during the next four years.
With a new strategy firmly in place, the Democrats will now be in position to make key steps towards regaining power. They will look to win the midterm elections of 2018 and hopefully get the majority in both the House and the Senate. George Soros will devote his resources to help Democrats get the help they need to appeal to more voters. If the new strategy succeeds, the Democrats will be able to have more autonomy to accomplish their goals of making America the progressive nation that they envision.
