Another presidential election season is bringing with it another batch of Democrats vying for the party’s nomination. However, Dem party leaders are hoping the primary process isn’t a knock down, drag out fight, which is what they’re blaming for Clinton losing Iowa to Trump in 2016:

Feel the Bern:
Party leaders say the Clinton-Sanders divisions ran so deep, it depressed the Democratic general election turnout in Iowa, contributing to Trump’s 10-point romp after Barack Obama twice carried the state.
“To get the reputation that you’re helping serve this up to Trump again — it’s a death wish,” Bagniewski said.
So, no voter suppression or the other thing that’s been in the news so much lately?
Wait, wasn’t it the Russians? https://t.co/WlYShW4oOx

Hillary Clinton also contributed to Trump’s “10-point romp” in Iowa — not to mention Wisconsin and elsewhere.
Maybe they just lacked a candidate they could all support? Obama had no problem getting out the vote

No, I think it was more likely the fact that the DNC rigged the Primaries, disenfranchising the rank-and-file of their Party. Add to that the obvious criminalities and abuses of Clinton, and Dems rejected her like everyone else.
