Touché, Catholicism is known for its liberal and open stance on the LGBTQ community.

I also should have checked to see how much of South Bend would be in the traditional 'rust belt'. Its not like it was a major automotive manufacturing city, and represented on the following chart:

I also stand corrected on him having 80% of the vote, I was mistaken thinking that mathematics applied in Indiana, which apparently Mike Pence was not the Governor of in 2015.

All that said, campaigning on facts will be the biggest difficulty for the Democrats in 2020. Which is why they should run a candidate that is not only smart, but also 'feels' right.
