    The Democrats lost seats in the House and failed to regain control of the Senate and State legislatures:
    A 2017 Times report the explained the basic thinking behind this strategy:
    Notably, the authors added:
    It's not about about winning. Both parties represent employers. The working class doesn't have a party. The Democrats' main function is to suppress the Left and normalize right-wing policies. George HW Bush couldn't pass NAFTA but Bill Clinton could.

    It was a pretty bad loss for the democrats. And its not just the losses its the fact that their campaign of hate completely flopped and they have no backup plan. 2022 could be extremely destructive for them.
