7. It won't help us as much as we think with blue collar voters

Blue collar GOP voters truly believe the GOP are fighting to protect their Medicare and Social Security and access to healthcare and are making "good business decisions" to get things done in their communities. I have had Trump voters tell me, to my face, that Trump helped the economy with stimulus checks while Democrats tried to stop him, and now that Democrats are in power they are obstructing Republican attempts to further help the economy.

Democrats, and the left in general, need to accept that most of these people are unreachable. They will credit their GOP representatives with Democratic achievements they explicitly opposed, and violently condemn Democrats for not achieving things those same GOP representatives obstructed.
