Every Dem should read this and absorb the lesson. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/06/did-clintons-impeachment-actually-hurt-republicans/591175/ …
Impeaching Clinton didn't hurt Republicans much; stealing the 2000 election didn't hurt them much; launching a disastrous war based on lies didn't hurt them much; walking the US blindly to a global recession didn't hurt them much.
Running a series of fraudulent investigations into fake Obama scandals didn't hurt them much; gerrymandering didn't hurt them much; abusing the filibuster didn't hurt them much; stealing a Supreme Court seat didn't hurt them much.
Working with hostile foreign power to elect a criminal didn't hurt them much; running multiple concurrent state-based schemes to suppress or deny minority votes didn't hurt them much; running concentration camps for children on the border didn't hurt them much.
Building a whole parallel media apparatus devoted to propaganda didn't hurt them much. Lying -- relentlessly, endlessly, about climate change, about crime, about immigrants, about taxes, about EVERYTHING -- didn't hurt them much.
The US right's accelerating evolution into a party of lawless minority white rule, which has involved shitting all over truth, decency, and every democratic norm still standing, has not hurt them much. A really good question to ask is: why?
