While Democrats, in a handful of elections since the general election, have performed better, it's not necessarily because people are so outraged over Trump that they're flocking to the Democrats' banner.Maybe that's because conservatives tend to be more civilized...
There are plenty of variables to consider: no Jill Stein or Gary Johnson, and almost any Democratic candidate will be more likable than Hillary Clinton. Further, Trump's approval numbers have been on the rise.
None of that has much to do with activism.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of Americans find political violence reprehensible. All of this "activism" may end up hurting Democrats in the midterm elections next year, as more leftist activists seem to be embracing the idea that violence is justifiable. After all, just take a look at what happened in Berkeley recently.
Unless the saner wing of the Democratic Party learns how to keep the more radical elements in check, that increased activism won't have the effect of the Tea Party of eight years ago -- which, remember, never resulted in so much as an arrest, never mind a few destroyed blocks.
