Good article on HuffPo highlighting a recent study on disaffected Americans and Danes -- the 40% of the electorate that says we need to burn the house down and start over.

The Democratic Party Confronts The Chaos Vote

But for most of the primary, Democratic Party voters and their leaders in Washington have acted under the assumption that the way to win over people who voted for Trump in 2016 is to mimic him. On Capitol Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to wrangle votes for Trump’s latest trade bill over the objections of labor unions and other liberal institutions. Every single candidate currently eligible for the next Democratic presid debate is white. There is pervasive concern that a candidate who is “too liberal” on just about any issue won’t appeal to voters in the Rust Belt. Democrats who propose big changes, the thinking goes, risk alienating people who like what Trump is doing.

In that way, the Chaos Voter study does provide a welcome dose of reality. When 40% of the country says it wants to burn down the system, the safe bet is on change, not caution.
