The Democrats are driving voters away from the party, collective suicide. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
What did they expect to happen when they repeat what has not worked in the past?
Huffington Post tracks 205 polls across 25 pollsters and the last few months have seen Democratic Party favorability collapse to its lowest since at least 2012…
The last month alone – with the Berkeley riots, demands for resignations, demands for ‘rising-up’, continued charges or sexism, anti-semitism, and racism, Russian-connection leaks and faux outrage, and women wearing white in protest – has seen Democratic Party unfavorability soar.
There are many reasons for this demise- not least of which was the further alienation of the progressive wing of the party this week with the appointment of Obama/Clinton establishment-man Perez as DNC chief, but we leave it to Gaius Publius (via Down With Tyranny blog) recently asked (and answered) – Are The Democrats Trying To Fail?

A worst-case scenario is painted below. First, consider this from NBC News on whether the public views insiders of either party favorably, (my emphasis): “One sentiment that unites the fractured nation is fury at the establishment in Washington. Fully 86 percent of those surveyed said they believe that a small group in D.C. has “reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. That includes 88 percent of Republicans and 85 percent of Democrats.”
Then consider how that broad unpopularity of insiders may intersect with this DNC election. Of that, Nathan Robinson, editor at Current Affairs, writes, “By failing to appoint Keith Ellison to chair the DNC, Democrats have written their suicide note.”
