Hillary Clinton had reached a “miserable” job, white Evangelical voters in the 2016 presidential elections, so that the next democratic nominee needs to “be better” in the year 2020, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, said recently.

Matthew Bennett, founder of the “third way” think tank sees itself as an advocate of the “modern centre-left ideas,” shared his views in Washington last weekend, in Michael Cromartie Forum, organized by the ethics and Public Policy Center, Christian Post reported.

Exit polls showed that Hillary Clinton captured only 16 percent of the white Evangelical vote in 2016, compared to Barack Obama’s 21 percent in 2012 and 24 percent in 2008, according to the report.

In Bennett’s view, Democrats made a mistake in trying to craft different messages for different constituencies, but as a “craft, a narrative that can be generally useful” are all voters.

“When I worked for Bill Clinton,” Bennett said, “he would say everywhere,” If you work hard and play by the rules, you will have a fair Chance.’ He would say that every single place he went, doing whatever he.

“Hillary another thing said, in every place you went, and it was nuanced and it was challenging and it was a disaster.”

In addition, Bennett claimed that the Democrats ‘ damage with faith-based voters by “two ticks too far” in front of the public on issues such as transgender rights. He said that the Democrats were so far, the public about same-sex marriage, but that is no longer the case.

But while Bennett religious voters, sees outreach as a strong possibility for Democrats, as they remained the head in 2020, a black Democrat, Christian strategist argued earlier this month that the party “believe in secular progress,” a source of alienation for many black Christians.

Justin Giboney, an Atlanta attorney and former Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention, said 18. June in a panel discussion at Georgetown University that, in his experience, black candidates expressed their biblical views were “totally demolished by the liberal establishment”, if these views differed from the secular progressive “box”.

“The message to the black community … Know ‘their place”,” Giboney said. “‘We want your votes, but we don’t want you in the office, if you hold certain types of beliefs.’

“If the democratic party that we have, you run into trouble.”
