I am arguing that the Democrats will win in 2016. I am not saying this because I am a Democrat, but because I think they will.

I don't care if a Republican, Democrat, or Independent argues against me as long as you have an open mind. I want to debate with someone who is not stubborn because they want a certain political party to win, but because they have facts and opinions to back up their statements.

I'll argue this point as a moderate ate democrat that the democratic victory is far from certain. Please state your case.

In the recently held mid-term elections the Republicans won, however based upon the legislation that was voted on by the American people the policy's that were passed favored the Democrats, therefore the American people elected Republican representatives, but voted Democrat on policy's. The mid-term election has a substantial difference in the amount of people who turn out compared to the presidential. Many Americans didn't even know there was an election in November, but this is not the case of the presidential election. Even though they may not vote the American people at least know there is a presidential election. First off, the Democrats will receive the votes of the majority of the Latin-American community with President Obama's new executive order the Latin-American community no longer sees President Obama and the Democrat party that President Obama represents as the "Deporter in Chief." Once these people become citizens some will be looking to pay the Democrats. After the Democrats substantial defat Democratic Nation Committee is looking at why they were defeated so badly. The number one way to draw out liberal voters is to put marijuana legalization on the ballot. The problem with this is that those people who come out to vote for the legalization of marijuana may not know who they are voting for. Over the next two years the Democratic National Committee will do everything they can do to find out how they can again be the party of the minorities, the middle class, and the lower class. If they can do this they should have no problem winning in 2016.

I like to offer a few rebuttals

1."ased upon the legislation that was voted on by the American people the policy's that were passed favored the Democrats, therefore the American people elected Republican representatives, but voted Democrat on policy's"

The only problem with that statement is that although the American public supports a majority of democrat principles they fail to support the affordable care act which has remained unpopular.Seeing as republicans exploited the unpopularity of the law to win the presidential election. Although I personally supported the Affordable Care act most of America does not. Thus the American public does not fully support the democratic agenda.

2."The mid-term election has a substantial difference in the amount of people who turn out compared to the presidential. Many Americans didn't even know there was an election in November, but this is not the case of the presidential election"

The turnout rate between presidential elections and midterm elections is between 5 and 10 percent difference which with the landslide victories of Republicans may not make as big a difference as you think. Also Americans did know their was midterm elections. All you needed to do is turn on the news for 5 seconds.

3.first off, the Democrats will receive the votes of the majority of the Latin-American community with President Obama's new executive order the Latin-American community no longer sees President Obama and the Democrat party that President Obama represents as the "Deporter in Chief." Once these people become citizens some will be looking to pay the Democrats.

the effect of the Latin American communities will be felt in the 2020 and 2024 when redistricting is done in the south to fight against gerrymandering in the south and voter id laws that still snuff the ability of minorities to effect the electoral college in the South

4.After the Democrats substantial defeat Democratic Nation Committee is looking at why they were defeated so badly.

This unfortunately requires that the democrats are able to remedy their problems in 2 years may or may not happen. Although thy may be able to accomplish these lofty goals it is far from certain.

Sorry. It was announced in 2006 at THE meeting in Ottawa, that Obama would be 2008 puppet, giving way to Jeb Bush in 2016. I have a legit source who was there.
