The massive loss in the 2016 election should be, if anything, an obvious wake-up call to the Democratic Party. They ran a crony old-style politician versus a populist and were humiliatingly defeated in every branch of state and federal government. The Democrats had another, far more popular option, Bernie Sanders, but they ignored him. The giant electoral losses might allow the Democratic Party to look back, reform, and embrace a populist message, if and only if they recognize that their defeat necessitates drastic change.
The left doesn't know how to counter the populist right without looking like fools. They must drop the social justice charade and pursue economically liberal policies in order to remain relevant.
Unfortunately, Democrats don't seem to be recognizing their need for reform, after recently electing corporate crony Tom Perez to DNC chair, slighting progressives and people opposed to corporate Democrats.
