Senator Bernie Sanders has finally admitted that the Democrats lost to Trump because they are “Out of Touch with America”.
Breitbart reported: “I happen to believe that the Democratic Party has been not doing a good job in terms of communicating with people in cities, in towns and in rural America, all over this country,” Sanders said in an interview on NPR’s Morning Edition.
The Vermont senator, who ran for president on the Democratic ticket and then switched back to Independent after losing the primary to defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, added, “Look, you can’t simply go around to wealthy people’s homes raising money and expect to win elections. You’ve got to go out and mix it up and be with ordinary people.”
Sanders and Trump both ran on a platform that pushed against the political establishment, and both were successful at tapping into the anti-establishment base. However, it was arguably Clinton’s decision to ignore her husband’s advice that contributed most to her loss in the general election. Former President Bill Clinton suggested that Hillary court working-class white men, a demographic that has long been ignored by the Democratic Party.
