How do the Democrats lose? (Not loose, as the OP said)

By running Hillary.

This is a pretty stupid comment Waldo, even by your low standards. You'll never have all of any group turn against a party, whether it's stating that all minorities will vote Democrat or even all Southern non-college white males will vote Republican, let alone stating that all working middle class (and I'm not even sure what that's supposed to mean, unless you think someone not working is middle classed) are going to vote the same way, regardless of educational, racial or regional differences, let alone political philosophy.

Don't hold your breath. I'm still waiting on the same answer about Connecticut.

In a theoretical world they would have a shot in PA and here is why I say that.

My family tells me they would never vote for a POTUS candidate that favors any gun control, supports abortion on demand, and favors legalized pot. So I ask them if this is their parameters, why do they vote Democratic? My mom responded to this question by showing my a flyer mailed to all registered voters in Allegheny County/Pittsburgh and signed/authorized by representative Mike Doyle PA-14, D reminding voters to vote Democratic in the 2014 elections BECAUSE they are the one "true party" that will, unlike Republicans, keep pot illegal, fight to make abortions illegal in the first trimester, and fight to defend the 2nd amendment. My mom was crying and asking how as a Republican I could be in favor of legalized pot, abortion on demand and gun control. The Democratic party in PA's second largest city is running on the Republican platform and winning all these very Catholic, JFK Democrats with that campaign. I think this time at least the middle class children are wising up.

Just for the record, Philly's Democratic candidate for Mayor won 85% of the vote, his Republican opponent got just 13% of the vote.

Trump would absolutely crush Hillary in the state of Ohio. Trump has a plan to bring back our high paying manufacturing jobs from overseas which will play very well in states like Michigan and Wisconsin. Those states also tend to be very pro gun which will hurt Hillary big time.

Hillary has proven to be in bed with the big banks and multinational corporations and will continue to offshore our jobs. Trump will save our jobs and bring many jobs back; this will play very well in the midwest. I believe Trump wins in a landslide against Hillary, getting about 65% of the popular vote and easily winning electoral college.

It's top secret, sort of like Nixon's plan to end the Vietnam War in 1968.

Trump has explained numerous times how he will achieve this. If China continues to artificially devalue their currency against the dollar he will charge tariffs on Chinese imports. If American companies manufacture cars or other products in Mexico a tariff will be implemented, thus dissuading American companies from manufacturing products there.

OK, but that's one thing. You can't reverse a 50 year shift by doing one thing.
