There is a large pool of surplus labor that has dropped out of the workforce entirely (as seen in labor force participation rate and employment-population ratio) as well as not nearly as many retired boomers as we once imagined. At least the serfs in the middle ages were given a home and land to work for their lords, and in some instances granted *gasp* freedom! We work for the right to be homeless or eternally indebted.

He did win more votes, just not in the states that mattered.

The economy was good when Trump was elected, which says he was not elected on that issue. What makes the public weary are fake politicians who give lip service and little else; many at least took a chance that Trump the jerk was authentic, which it turns out he wasn't. What the public really wants is a leader who not only says they care, but proves it. Not someone who says "I will fight for you Flint" and never comes back when they lose the election (hi Hillary). Basically they want someone like Bernie Sanders, lol.
I just haplessly wandered into Bizzarro World. Which way is the EXIT?

Realistically, they have nothing else to run on other than they don't like his personality.

Al Gore wasn't running for re-election and Al Gore isn't Bill Clinton.

There is a ton of winning platforms to run on. Most are ones the (D)'s have abandoned though.
