The Left won’t win in 2018 (or 2020) until they understand where Trump's support rests

Will all the soul-searching by the Left lead to victories in the upcoming elections? Not if the Democrats choose the same path. A roundup of editorials Monday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the Left:

1. My Brother Kevin’s Not Tired of Winning

From The New York Times: Trump’s support comes from the most basic of instincts – frustration with career politicians.

2. Trump and his voters are drawn together by a shared sense of defiance

From NBC News: Tell Trump supporters how they should vote? Yeah, good luck with that.

3. Democrats won’t beat Trump by racing to the Left

From Newsweek: The Democrats need to grab the center if they want to win in 2020.
