Hillary Clinton's defeat in the November 2016 presidential elections was a stunning shock for the Democratic party and, more broadly, the entire American left. Civil society nevertheless quickly shook off its stupor. Numerous spontaneous movements have emerged, often spawned by the deep disgust that a large portion of the population on this side of the political spectrum feels towards the new occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, and some of them have met with huge success. Youth, women and minorities are on the front lines of this very vocal and very broad-based defiance towards Mr. Trump that has dubbed itself "the Resistance". Local elections in 2017 and Democratic primaries ahead of the November 2018 midterms have confirmed that this multifold movement definitely has wind in its sails. The party with the donkey symbol is now seeking to tap into this momentum to get back in the game by seizing a majority in the House of Representatives at the end of this year and then getting in position to show Mr. Trump the door out of the Oval Office in 2020.
