Progressives always complain about a lack of funds, but clearly there is plenty of money available. Hillary Clinton did not lose because she had less money than Trump; she had considerably more. The congressional race Georgia’s 6th District attracted tens of millions of dollars for the Democratic candidate. He lost, but not because he was underfunded.
What ultimately won the day for the right was its long-term focus. The left seems to me to be totally focused on the short-term .... This puts Democrats permanently on defense. But as my old boss Jack Kemp, a former pro football player, always told me, “You don’t win games on defense.”
Another strength of the right that the left could learn is its self-confidence and aggressiveness.
