I've posted about this several times over the months leading up to this election: Dems are losing more and more votes with each election and thus losing representation at all levels of our government of, by, and for the People.
Yes, there are more Dem than Rep votes in 2016, but the totals are still dropping over time. Here are the total Dem votes for the last three presidential elections:
And what makes this drop more alarming is that it goes against the increases in population and number of registered voters. Texas had a record 14,025,441 registered voters in 2014 and 15,100,824 in 2016.
Democrats need to stop scapegoating others and face the fact that we need to change our election strategy to better match the winning strategies used to elect and re-elect President Obama. If you'd like to learn about this strategy, read Brown Is The New White by Steve Phillips. Phillips shows, as does the votes to decriminalize marijuana and legalize same-sex marriage, that there is a progressive majority in our country. They just aren't inspired to vote by ads that bash the opponent. They want to know what Dems will do to fix their problems.
What we also have to recognize is the massive efforts and money being used to suppress left-leaning voters. For the latest on this and who's paying for it, watch The Best Democracty Money Can Buy.
We also need to understand that our constitutionally protected free press is mostly no longer accountable to it's users - it's accountable to key investors only. Remember that the CEO of CBS commented that DJT may not be good for the country, but he's great for the CBS bottom line. On the other hand,Hillary's and Sander's speeches on issues were not good for their bottom line and were not broadcast by our profit-centric media. Check out this article on the Fairness Doctrine that was killed by Reagan and changed news organizations into profit centers.
The progressive votes are there.
They just need issue based reasons to vote.

As you may have noticed, candidates for the other team have put out their campaign signs all around the county this weekend. It’s time for our team to make our move.
We need you help in one of two ways: sign placement or recovering the cost.
HELPING WITH SIGN PLACEMENT:
We have both home yard signs and highway 4’X8’ signs for our three local candidates and Mrs. Clinton and we need to get them placed ASAP. If you live in a high visibility location in your neighborhood, please send your request for a home yard sign to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know of any land suitable for a highway 4’X8’ sign that is legally accessible and in a high visibility location, please provide the location information to Chairman Young, email@example.com.
HELPING WITH COST RECOVERY:
As with previous campaigns, all these signs have been paid for by either the candidates or your county party. Since the Democratic party and its candidates are dependent on donationS to pay for these signs, make a donation to one, or more, of the following:
