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.
