I don't know.  Look at how Repubs are caving to Trump, more afraid to speak against him as his ratings keep improving.

It's the career politicians desperate to win elections that are too cowardly to take this stuff on.  Repubs never took on the Tea Party, the right wing religious nuts just hijacked it and then made it irrelevant.  Maybe radical environmentalists will hijack the Dem Socialists in similar fashion.

I was referring to moderate voters.  There is a good chunk of moderate conservatives who no longer identify with the GOP.  I can see the same happening with dems soon.

But  the  way elections  are rigged against third parties, I don't see any of that mattering.  And I have no idea where the  moderates went in the Democratic party.  Or they're there, but afraid to speak up.

Right now they are united for their hatred for Trump.  It will be interesting to see where they are when Trump is gone.

The leadership and loudest voices in the Dem party has been mostly far left for some time.  Then you have Bernie, too.  I don't see any moderates reigning in the crazy on that side of the house.

LOL....brought to you by those  wonderful liberals at Lifehacker

TL;DR version....Somehow Crowley remains on the ballot for the general, meaning they most likely will split Dem votes and a Republican could take the seat.

Haha, there's a tweet in there from OC about "we cannot underestimate the power of dark money".   WTF?!?!
