Since Donald Trump entered politics the Democrats have struggled to compete. The mid-term elections will see them employing a change in tactics that they hope will mobilise new voters and win over disillusioned moderates.

It’s being called the most important midterm election in American history. On November 6th Americans will vote for the first time since Donald Trump won the presidency. The Republicans control both houses of Congress – the midterms provide the Democrats with a chance of clawing back some political control.
If the Democrats come up short they face another cycle shut out of power. The result of these midterms could shape America, and its political parties, for decades to come.
Max Rose is running for Congress. Like Mr. Trump, Mr. Rose is an unusual figure. He’s a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician. The success of Donald Trump has forced the Democrats to cast a wider net supporting first-time candidates with diverse backgrounds. Among them a record number of women and non-white candidates, but also many military veterans.
The Republicans have long claimed that they are the party of the military. But now the Democrats are harnessing military patriotism too. This is a different breed of Democrat. In many cases they’re running against career politicians. Mr. rose was inspired by the fresh approach of Mr. Trump’s vision for the country but feels let down.
Republicans already hold the house in the Senate. The Democrats stand little chance of winning the Senate, but with this new breed of candidate they could take control of the house. Failure would leave them unable to check president Trump’s power.
