The Democrats are still in crisis mode after the loss of Hillary Clinton and failing to retake congress. Another point of worry is the lack of young talent on the Democratic side.
All of their leaders are over the age of 70 and that is not a good sign for a party that just lost every part of government.
Now they are also losing a majority of their funding and donors after the donors feel like they wasted their money supporting Hillary.
Tired Dem donors feel like their money got burned
Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire.
The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018.
It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments.
Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see as dysfunction in the DNC, which will elect a new leader in February.
Adding insult to the injury: The names of many donors were released in the WikiLeaks hack of Democratic emails, believed to have come at the hands of Russian intelligence. It was a mortifying development that has rattled some of the party’s big-money men and women.
Well setting your money on fire probably would have been a better decision for you conscience at least instead of supporting one of the most corrupt politicians ever.
