Up to now, the ultra-liberals and socialists have driven the agenda for the DNC. At some point, I think a lot of those moderates will also contribute to a party shakeup. At present, they are simply taken for granted, much like black and women voters. But I can see where they will eventually get tired of the BS and push back harder.
Good post.

Trump has shaken up CNN that's for sure. But the Dems problems started with the great recession and their inability to put together a message that reached people. Like you say they had a number of stalwarts who they counted on. Only they didn't show up in 2010.

Maybe something as simple as polling people to see what they are thinking about aside from gay marriage, gun control and abortion.
